The apartment in the delightful holiday resort of Cala Galdana, was well-equipped and had a large balcony overlooking the gorge. It was in a quiet part of the resort, although we were entertained by the live music from the hotel opposite, in the evenings. There is a good choice of restaurants to suit all tastes and open all day and evening. There is plenty for all ages: play areas for the children, a perfect, gently shelving and safe beach, warm sea, and lovely walks along the Cami des Cavalls for the more energetic.
This was a fantastic apartment, up one flight of outdoor stairs, and right next to a small pool (which often we were the only ones using so like our own private one!) It was in a great location, near the beach and away from the noise of the small town but close enough to walk to easily. The sun reaches the pool area first in the morning so the terrace is shaded for an alfresco breakfast. The terrace is a good size. The apartment is a good size, cool with air conditioning if needed, and has all the amenities required including starter bathroom and dishwashing kits until you find your bearings. The owners were brilliant, showing us round the town when we arrived and allowing us to keep our luggage in a locked storage area on the last day - even letting me use their washing line to dry my clothes on after we had vacated the apartment (there is a drying rack on the apartment terrace). The beach is amazing, safe and warm sea with three beach bars along it. A nice 20 min walk in woods to another beach with an area you can dive off the rocks to with steps to climb back up (though this is a 'virgin beach' the sandy area was very busy and no facilities). There are not many shops in the town and they and the restaurants are pretty expensive. If on a budget you'd be best going to Ferrieres for a supermarket and cooking in the apartment. Overall, would thoroughly recommend this place for a wonderfully relaxing break.
The apartment is very nice, clean, comfortable, and cool
Very well located near the Cala Galdana beach.
It has everything one needs.
The owners were great and looked after us really well.
The access is not great if you're carrying shopping, prams or the beach gear. A steep ramp plus few steps to climb from the main street to reach the apartment.
We have visited Cala Galdana before and love the town and people very much - the apartment was as advertised and well appointed - we enjoyed the pool that got the sun from late morning till late afternoon.
Access to the apartments would not be suitable for those in wheelchairs or with walking difficulties.
The restaurants the other side of the gorge are plentiful and with a very good variety of food some with very professional and welcoming hosts and we do recommend Es Barranc which is 200-300 yards from the bridge on the right.
We stayed in this duplex apartment in July 2016 and have stayed in may of the properties owned/managed by this friendly Menorcan family - nothing is too much trouble
The apartment is clean and spacious and well equipped.
Location - the apartments are built up the side of the gorge, so there are steps to negotiate. We took it to be a bit of a workout with the children, so not a problem.
The beautiful bay and playa of Cala Galdana are at the end of the street - less than a 3 minute walk and you are there.
A little further on, over the bridge, and you are in the heart of the resort with plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from.
Cala Galdana is a very family friendly resort and mostly goes quiet before midnight. From the apartment it is possible to sit on the balcony and enjoy the live acts performing across at the Hotel Cala Galdana, but as I say this ends way before midnight - usually 11pm.
All in all a great apartment in a beautiful resort - try it.
Lovely clean apartment with pool overlooking the river and near the fantastic beach of Cala Galdana.
Restaurants close by. Pretty coastal walks. Nothing to fault, enjoyed every minute.
