We visited this hotel at the end of the season on a late deal from direct travel. The resort was deserted with most of it closed down which suited us perfectly. Unfortunately Arenal d'en Castell is mostly a purpose build resort so lacks the charm and character we usually look for. We hired a car so that we could go and visit the rest of the island. This would be an ideal location if you wanted a pure beach holiday, however we like to explore a little.
The accomodation was excellent, good pools, and spacious rooms. The only criticism would be the rusting bath taps and the really uncomfortable sofa bed in the lounge.
The real let down of the hotel is the food. In most buffets you are usually challenged with how to smuggle food out. We were challenged with how to smuggle food in. We ended up brining our own jams and cereals to supplement breakfast. This is because they provide a very cheap standard of buffet, which is hampered even further by the ability to over cook everything. The staff were excellent and very friendly, however I am convinced that the buffet is funded solely from the drinks bills at the evening meal.
Overall this was a good place and was excellent value for the price we paid. If we were to visit Menorca again (unlikely) then we would probably stay elsewhere and pay a little more money for a better hotel elsewhere.
