Fantastic Hotel - Great for families with small childrenfrom AbiRose
fantastic hotelfrom Em30
Cala n Bosch is a pretty and family friendly resort, centered around a harbour. The nearest beach is covered in sunbeds, with not much room to play but if you walk an extra 10 mins there are some lovely quiet coves in the next resort along.
Only slight moan would be the food - we stayed full board, and found the food getting a bit samey by the end of the week. Is good quality overall though, with fresh fish and meat cooked on the griddle in front of you. The dining room could get quite busy in the evenings too.
The resturant was very overcrowded and understaffed. The buffet had queues and reminded me of a school dining room. The food was also poor - no where near what you would expect of a 4 star hotel. Although we paid for half board we ate out 4 nights out of 7.
Also there were not enough seats around the pool for the number of gueats -many families with small children were wandering around with nowhere to sit.
Also the evening entertainment went on to almost midnight and were very very loud. No one in the rooms nearby could get to sleep - again many like us with small children.
I would never go back. This is nowhere near what you would expect of a 4 star hotel!!!
Lived up to tripadvisor reviews.from hubbywontfly
We are not all day sunbathers and the resort is quite small (even though from what we saw it is probably the largest) so we found ourselves a little bored and doing a lot of walking (blisters to prove it). Ciudadela is very nice - nice shopping and harbour area nice for lunch. We hired a car for two days, roads quiet enough not to be too stressful, and visited Cala Galdana - nice beach, Fornells - lovely fishing harbour with good seafood restaurants, and Mont Torro worth the climb (in the car) just for the views.
The hotel had entertainment on in the outside bar (we were a bit too early for the inside activities) which were quite good.
Overall, we had a good week, but wouldnt have wanted longer - would recommend the hotel - only one reservation - please be careful on coming out of the pool - the floor seems to be sealed with something and is very slippy. I had quite a bad fall and injured myself which hindered the holiday slightly.
Out of this World - The Best Hotel Everfrom Familywithyoungbaby
The whole hotel and grounds are immaculately kept.The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We have an 8 month old baby and all the staff made an effort to talk to her. The whole resort really suits older couples and families with young children and babies. The only downside of the resort is that its not buggy friendly and has high curbs. As a warning its difficult getting buggies round the hotel as well - there are quite a lot of steps and wouldn't really suit those who are less mobile.
Another warning - if you have a baby take your own food and milk as they were very expensive in the resort (200ml milk carton £1.50, jars £1.00)

Fantastic Hotel and Holidayfrom jermain
As for the restaurant we couldn’t have asked for better staff and the food was excellent. Jose the maitre de was lovely, we asked for the same table if possible to be reserved each morning and evening and he usually obliged. Gloria who was our waitress for most of the week was fantastic smiling all the time and nothing was too much trouble for her. Tremendous selection of food, show cooking breakfast and dinner, even if you are a fussy eater you will find something to your liking, gorgeous sweets puddings and ice cream.
The hotel is situated next to the marina so we didn’t have to walk far. Cala ‘n’ Bosch is a very quiet resort with small boats filling the marina. Restaurants, shops and hotels surround the marina and at night live music is played in the bars which is not to everyone’s taste but the acts were performed to a good standard. We sampled the tapas restaurant and the food was excellent and being able to glance out across the marina was very pleasant, people watching and trying some of the local cuisine.
The blue flag beach at Cala ‘n’ Bosch is quite small but very nice and clean. A short walk around the corner to De Son Xoriguer took us to a nicer longer beach where there are water sports. Here there are gorgeous villas and eating places and the sea is clear and warm.
We rented a car for the day and headed to Mahon after a strole around the harbour and market we headed back towards Cala ‘n’ Bosch stopping at Fornells, Son Bou, Cala Santa Galdana and Santa Thomas. All the resorts were very nice, Fornells is lovely very quaint and quiet and Santa Galdana is very beautiful. These would be our favourite places to stay. Be prepared if you do hire a car to retrace your steps every time you visit a beach or place of interest as there is no costal road due to the protection of trees and wild life on the island, so you must always return to the inland highway every time you want to change location.
Pool, Pool bar, Games, Shows
The attractive lagoon pool was fantastic and having a walk in shallow end is great for small children and none swimmers like my mother. There are steel bars along the sides part way and steps before the water deepens so she felt completely safe also the four fountains are quite gentle. There is a small children’s pool and an outside pool bar for daytime and evening refreshments. Prices were quite expensive but this can be expected from a hotel snack bar. We didn’t actually eat here as our breakfast provided everything we needed and we preferred to look forward to our fantastic buffet evening meal. They also had a snack bar and a al carte restaurant on the marina side of the hotel. Tina the German entertainments lady was very nice and organized daily water aerobics and other team games such as boule and table tennis. There were various shows in the evening on stage by the pool side bar. These ranged from an ’Elvis’ and ’Abba’ performance to a magician-some were good others were a bit of a worry but the small children were entertained.
On the whole our holiday was wonderful we had a really happy time and have some lovely memories of the Valentin Star-cant wait to go back.
Nice place to stayfrom toddlealong
Top Local Tips for Ciutadella de Menorca
getting around Hire a car - in order to get the best out of Menorca you really need a car to get to all the isolated coastal villages - but the roads are excellent and traffic is light so it's a pleasure driving!
Getting around - Public Transportation Very easy to understand and very cheap to get around.
Taxi or Bus The first time we went we had a taxi because it was market day and we needed to be quick. It cost just short of 12 euros. All taxis have a printed charge sheet - so charge the same. On next visit we used the bus which run very often (ask at hotel desk for timetable) takes about half an hour and you must purchase a ticket ftp,m ticket box in main square for return journey.
