My wife and I have just returned from an excellent week at the Xaloc. It was our first time to Menorca and based on our experience here, it will not be our last.
It is difficult to add more to what murraym00 from Gateshead reported 2 or 3 posts earlier. Everywhere was kept beautifully clean, the staff were always helpful, polite, very efficient and almost unobtrusive, the bedroom was spacious with plenty of hanging and drawer space, the bathroom had seemingly new sanitary ware and was spotless. Sound insulation was not good though so early risers in adjacent rooms and those moving along the corridor did cause a disturbance.
The choice and quantity of food for both breakfast and dinner was good. As soon as an item neared the end, it was replenished with fresh supplies. Breakfast choice included everything one normally expects, there is no point in listing the selections. For dinner, there was always a soup, a good selection of cold meats, cheeses and salad dishes (including asparagus and fresh prawns on a couple of nights), four hot dishes with another 4 or 5 hot side dishes, 4 desserts plus fresh fruits and ice cream. Anyone who finds this less than acceptable must be expecting haute cuisine 5 star food for 3 star prices. The food served was better than most people would cook for themselves at home - and that says it all.
I chose to rent a car from the hotel reception rather than from the holiday rep. The car was good, the service was very good and the deal cost effective. However I only wanted 2 days whereas the minimum rental period is 3 days.
Punta Prima itself was very tranquil with another 3 hotels spread around the village and half a dozen restaurants and bars around the beach area. With that much competition, restaurant prices were exceptionally good. At no point did it feel busy or crowded.
Finally, many people we met had returned to the Xaloc not just once, but many times. There really is nothing more to say.
