“Very nice but VEEEEEEERY QUIET”
Reviewed September 14, 2009

We just came back from a week in Menorca for a wedding. We booked Apartamentos CastellSol as it was a very good deal and we weren't disappointed. The flat was basic - sitting room, small kitchen with mod cons, double bedroom, balconies front and back and small bathroom - but suited our needs perfectly. It was really clean and the complex was well kept. Pool was cleaned every day and towels changed every other. However, we were the ONLY people staying there in a complex of probably 30 apartments. Fine by me but it was a little eerie. I'd recommend it definitely if you don't mind not seeing anyone but if you are after somewhere lively then it isn't for you. I heard they lost their deal with a holiday company which was why it was so empty. Shame as it is a really nice spot - a few hundred yards from all the action - with great views and a really pleasant complex. Restaurant was closed so can't comment on that.

Just returned from a weeks holiday at the Castell Sol.
Apartment very nice with a front and rear patio, fan in the bedroom and adequate cooking facilities.

Didn't spend much time at the pool or eat in the restaurant in the evenings as beach and resort restaurants very close by.

Would return despite unhelpful attitude of english receptionist.

We have just returned from 2 weeks staying at this hotel. The plus side is that as it's only a small hotel (about 42 rooms) you get to know everyone staying there. It has wonderful views and is in easy reach of shops/restaurants.

The downside, however, is the ants appear after a few days and once they are in your apartment they bring thousands of their friends. The ant problem is known to this hotel and the 'friendly' receptionist will tell you to go buy some ant spray. This accommodation will also only provide you with 2 toilet rolls for the whole of your holiday although it is not expensive to buy. The Spanish staff at this accommodation are very friendly and the only english staff is the receptionist who will not go that extra mile (I was not the only person staying here who had this opinion).

This resort is small and I would suggest that you hire a car as the roads in Menorca are great even in the height of the summer. Son Bou has a fantastic beach and Fornells have great seafood restaurants.

  • Liked — small complex
  • Disliked — ants and cleanliness
  • Tips/Secrets — take ant spray and toilet rolls

My husband and I have just booked the Castell sol apts in Menorca for July 2006, in the information supplied by Eclipse Direct no building work is mentioned. However it has come to our attention , because a familly member has just gone out there, that a large development it currently underway right by the side of these apartments. We are told that the pool is full of dust and that large cranes are currently swinging about over the pool area, the builders are also burning rubbish. When my parents entered the reception area of this establishment it was deserted but for the cleaner and the Receptionist they enquired about the building work taking place, as when we contacted Eclipse regarding this matter, they quoted that they currently had no knowledge of this building work on the system (apparently refered to as a RATA in travel speak)and on investigation they then came back and told us that the building work would only resume on the 1st of November 2005 and carry on upto the 1st of May 2006 as is the rules of the island of Menorca. Clearly this is not the case. When question ed the receptionist said that it could not be gauranteed that the development next door would be completed, meaning that you will be holidaying next to a building site, just what you need in the school holidays in July. When asked what current holidaymakers though of the situation on arrival, as they are obviously not being made aware of the situation before leaving the UK, the word used was "mortified". As for Eclipse in order to escape this nightmare we will have to pay £120.00 escape fee or spend the next 9 months wondering what we might find on our arrival at "Castell Sol Apts.
