After years of villas and cruises we decided to try something different - an all inclusive hotel with First Choice in Menorca - and we were absolutely delighted with everything about the Almirante Farragut in Cala'n Forcat. We can't praise it enough.
As soon as we arrived we were ushered into lunch by the friendly and highly efficient reception staff, who were pleasant and helpful right through our holiday. The restaurant amazed us, with an astonishing selection of excellent food at the sumptuous buffet, offering a really wide choice, even for my vegetarian wife, and a very smart and proficient staff managing everything beautifully under the kindly, watchful eye of head waiter Jose Rodriguez.
Our room was very comfortable, with the luxury of air efficient conditioning and a fridge in which we were able to keep a store of mineral water, freely available throughout the hotel. And our balcony offered a spectacular view, as well as a five strand clothes drier, much to my wife's delight.
Throughout the hotel and around the beautiful pool (where there was a magnificent and inexhaustible supply of beds and umbrellas, and clean pool towels available every day from reception) we were greeted with smiles by the most hospitable staff, and of course we experienced for the first time the wonders of "the magic wristband", which secured a wide range of soft or alcoholic drinks whenever the urge took us.
And the position of the hotel was almost perfect - just a short stroll into the village, with its wide range of little shops, restaurants and bars, and only fifty yards to the bus stop for a quick inexpensive ride into Ciutadella, the lovely old town which was the original capital of the island.
Little touches made us feel at home - BBC and ITV stations on our telly, staff remembering our names, the cheery "Hola!" with which our maid greeted us every morning.
It's only a couple of weeks since we arrived home, but we popped in the Thomson office on Friday and booked for next year, so that we can enjoy a year of looking forward to our return to the Almirante Farragut.
A very satisfied guest
