We visited Siesta Playa 17th September 2011 for 7 days.
I've read a few poor reviews of the Siesta Playa and our party were apprehensive about our 7 day holiday before leaving home. Whoever wrote those reviews must have been unlucky when they came here. We were chuffed to bits when we walked into our air conditioned studio on the first night. It was very clean, equipped with the basic essentials and very comfortable.All the staff had a smile on their face and nothing was too much for them. The pool and surrounding area was first class and the poolside bar , though small supplied everything you would want, and inexpensively priced. Ten yards from the pool was the beach. What more could the holiday maker want?
The resort of Cala'n Bosch is basically a picturesque marina, filled with yachts, and surrounded by a plethora of bars and restaurants. A meal for four adults with drinks cost us around £45. We mainly ate in La Fontana and the El Pato restaurants. We preferred La Fontana, though El Pato was also good. On an evening we visited Legends bar for the footie on TV and we'd also use Tom's Bar on the opposite side of the marina near the music / band stand.A pint of Amstel in Legends was 2Euros. A pint of the Estrella was between 3 and 4 Euros around the marina bars. All music in the bars ends at midnight, but don't believe some reviews that say the bars close, they don't. The bars will remain open if you want to stay for a drink. So don't be put off if the marina looks or sounds quiet, the bars are open and waiting for you.
Outside the Siesta Playa is a supermarket for all your self catering groceries.Buy the Spanish equivalent of the UK labels to save a few coppers. You can get your hot fresh bread here also.
If you want to see the island you can catch the bus to Ciutadella across the road.
In summary, if you are unsure about going to the Siesta Playa don't worry, it's a lovely place in a beautiful location. I don't think Cala'n Bosch is suitable for the 18-30 brigade but families and couples will find theplace ideal.
