You get a bird’s eye view of Arenal d’en Castell when you stay at the Fiesta Hotel Castell Playa. The property is set on top of a hill, so it looks out over the resort’s sandy bay and the Mediterranean Sea.
It’s easy to get out and about when you stay here. The town’s beach, bars and restaurants are just a five-minute walk away. Plus, the hotel runs a shuttle bus service to the beach, six days a week.
The hotel itself is a peaceful place, because it’s not got many neighbours. You’ll have no trouble relaxing as you laze on your sunlounger by the large L-shaped swimming pool.
Finally, the Fiesta Hotel Castell Playa is part of the Thomson Gold collection, so you can expect great things on the food and entertainment front. The main restaurant puts on big buffets every night and, after dinner, comedians, singers and dance acts perform by the poolside.

Lovely place to stay
Where to start no really bad things to say,food great, staff happy and helpful, good room (quiet at the front great views, sunnier at the back slightly noisier). Only gripes are the climb up from the beach(if you are pool person this won't matter) and the bar they have cheap alternatives for baileys but not on all inclusive. These points aside would go back and probably willMore
Caution if you are a non smoker!
Stayed end July 2013 for 2 weeks. I'm mid 50's with new partner and she has always had a 2 week holiday in sun sitting around pool just doing nothing - a rather alien idea of a holiday for me! I actually enjoyed it. Nothing to complain about hotel, good choice of food etc. Didn't quite understand package re drinks as hotel seems to have a number of packages. Hated having to SIGN for all drinks bit and having to wear a rubber band all holiday to identify different packages - how about swiping room passes?. We hired car for just 3 days - watch out the car hire firm they "recommend" quote in euros but surrupticiously charge £ and that cost me over £15 more - often a problem with people put your card in machine and just pass it back for your pin. Only draw back inside this is non smoking BUT OUTSIDE AROUND POOL people can AND DO smoke, so they are next to you with the smoke blowing over you - always a gentle breeze - and this area is used for entertainment in evening too. I love inhaling other people's smoke - like not! Annoying if you get down early then some-one arrives and starts chain smoking next to you - and a lot of people in the 40 plus age bracket still do.More

We had a very enjoyable holiday the last 2 weeks of season. Staff The staff were superb and the bar staff in particular kept our glasses full. Restaurant staff were extremely efficient & plates were cleared quickly Hotel Rooms spotlessly clean, well-furnished but 4 euro’s a day for safe. We had room 403 overlooking the magnificent horseshoe bay. Not too far from the lifts which although only took 4 people never seemed to be a problem for us. Beds were comfy but pillows a bit of a let-down. Restaurant & Food Sit anywhere when quiet but always found a table at busy times. Food was varied & plentiful and the meat dishes were always tender. We were all inclusive which we considered to be vfm for the £10 extra pp per day we paid. Pool Pool area could be a little cramped but we always managed to find a sunbed. The pool itself went from shallow on entering to suddenly quite deep especially from the far end (quickly out of depth!) The pool bar was a minus for us as the seating area was extremely cramped with only a small selection of snacks available for half board guests. The staff worked really hard though. Reps Our holiday reps were friendly, worked really hard and were always available. Location As stated, on a hill overlooking horseshoe bay. 3 slopes and 146 steps to beach which only took us 10 minutes to reach. 20 minutes to beach via road way but still slopes to negotiate. The small courtesy bus ran on time several times a day. The bay was fantastic, and was really quiet when we were there. Caught the bus to Mahon (more steps) and Fornells which was lovely. Noddy train ‘hop on hop off’ trip was 6 euros and just ran around the resort. Entertainment The entertainment was a bit hit & miss, some good but some poor, although really laughed at the Comedians. There was plenty of comfy seating and large ‘quiet bar’ downstairs. Also 2 very conducive verandas outside the entertainment bar. Overall met some lovely people and had great time but maybe not the best vfm or location for us.More
A really pleasant place...
We had ten days here in September and took advantage of their all-in offer. Rooms were always clean, staff were Menorca's finest, a wonderful selection of fresh food daily. Evening entertainment? dodgy, definitely very noisy, but most guests were happy with this. This Hotel is a victim of it's own success; it tends to be overcrowded because it is popular and good value for money. Thanks for a pleasant holiday!More
Thompson Gold in Menorca
We stayed at the hotel for two weeks from 25th Sept to 9th Oct 2013, all inclusive. We enjoyed good weather but it was becoming very windy by October and the hotel was preparing top close by 16th Oct Food was generally chicken and pork. The food layout could have been better. The all inclusive deal was good value. Our rooms faced the mountain and we got the sun from late afternoon. The entertainment was varied and good. More
