I have just returned from a wonderful relaxing holiday at the Xaloc Playa Hotel Menorca.
Its a lovely hotel and spotlessly clean.It is a very easy going hotel and very casual, which is nice, you don't have to dress for dinner. The staff are friendly from reception, right through to the bar staff and waiters. I enjoyed most of the meals there and there was plenty of choice. The room was big enough and again very clean, towels and bedding replaced every day. The pool is lovely and usually enough sunbeds. Despite there being a sign in the hotel not to reserve sunbeds, people still did, which i found irritating. Being September there was not enough entertainment in the hotel, only 4x during the two weeks we were there, apparantly in the high season, they have entertainment every other night. But apparantly, they have realised they made a mistake and will change this for 2011. There is not alot to do in the resort, only 4 bars and restaurants, 3 supermarkets and a pharmacy. It is a very quiet resort. There is the land train that takes you to nearby Binibeca Vell and beach, the land train is every hour, but stops between 12.30 and 5.30 for Spanish siesta. The hotel is just across the road from the beach, i loved the beach, despite having to wade through seaweed to get into the sea. The sunbeds plus a parasol at the beach is 15 euros for two people.
are on time too!! There is one cash machine in Punta Prima, and we didn't have problems getting money out, probably as it was September and a quieter time.There is one English pub which has a pub quiz and karoke weekly, which is ok, they serve food, but we didn't try it, as we were happy with the food at the hotel.
The bus into Mahon leaves at 25 past the hour, and it's on time too,it can and does leave earlier sometimes, so get to the bus stop in plenty of time. If you want to see other parts of the island you have to get a bus into Mahon and out again.
If you are looking for a holiday with lots of hustle and bustle then this is not the holiday for you, but we went for a quiet relaxing holiday and this is what we had.
