This adults-only hotel is just a short walk from Cala Galdana’s white-sand beach.
This adults-only hotel is in a prime spot close to a handful of bars and restaurants. And it’s just a minute’s stroll to Cala Galdana’s white-sand beach – you can reach it via a footbridge just opposite the hotel.
The hotel has a curvy pool with a terrace that overlooks the sea. And there are two restaurants serving Mediterranean classics.

Set on a raised terrace, the pool takes pride of place. There are plenty of sunbeds, Bali beds and parasols on the surrounding terrace, as well as an infinity pool.
Treat yourself to a beauty treatment or indulge and relax with a spa treatment. There are hydro-massage pools, thermal loungers and a toning pool. For something a bit different try the Turkish bath, or a shower with essential oils. You can also have a massage or mud treatment.
Grab a coffee or a chilled out breakfast on the terrace overlooking the sea. There's great music during the day, and by night the place transforms with live music and other art events.

Five Stars all the way
It's 15 years since we last visited Cala Galdana and the first time at the Audax, if I typed all night I couldn't paint a suitable picture of the hotel and it's many good points. 1. No kids ( not anti children ) but peace and quiet was heaven 2. Excellent location, a stone throw from the beach, from shops, from canoe hire, from walks etc etc 3. Food in both restaurants was excellent, plentiful, varied and fattening :-( yes I know you don't have to over indulge, but unless you have a willpower of steel 4. Hotel spotless, cleaners do an excellent job 5. In our opinion, what makes the Hotel special is its staff, they were friendly, helpful, cheery, sometimes informal but above all professional Our room was rear facing, not a problem as didn't have to look out over pool and no noise ( if any ) from Blue Cafe music ( which wasn't too loud or didn't go on late ), also sun hit our balcony late afternoon /evening and it was roasting. Pool area clean, well maintained, outside bar and eating area, plenty of beds, umbrellas, even a device to lower people with limited mobility into the upper pool. Blue cafe was the lower bar, inside and outside seating, cabaret in the evenings, a really good atmosphere, we tried all the other bars in Galdana but preferred the hotel one. â¬2 for a small estrella, par for the resort. Room 717 had a shower over the bath, comfy bed, fridge, safe, tea, coffee, complimentary milk. I suppose the balcony was maybe on the small side, but room for us and our beers and anyway why would you spend time in the room when there's sun outside. I'm sure that the Audax is not perfect all of the time, but for us it was Fantastic We are looking to go again later in the yearMore

A modern minimalist decored multi-storey hotel in very pretty Cala Galdana. Fantastic value in April but no much around open....so car needed but now where is far in Minorca! Ferries and Es Mercadal have good restaurants Sea view room nice size and great view over a really pretty bay and in-let We went before the tours were there so plenty of room but it all seemed well enough run with sufficient facilities to more than cope in the season. We enjoyed our stay what more can I say!More
A relaxing stay!
The Audax is part of the Thomson Couples range of hotels and as such has the signature minimalist look, with blocks of colour discretely dotted around. Cala Galdana is a very attractive resort with one of the prettiest beaches in Menorca. We did not stay in the favoured sea view rooms, but had a view over the back of the pool with various lush green plants. This did mean the room was slightly dark, but having been out in the sun all day it was quite nice to escape to somewhere a little cooler. I would say the room was smaller than we expected, but it was furnished to a decent standard and was clean and functional considering the little time we actually spent in it! The food was good and reasonably varied. Many of the evening meals consisted of different cuts of various meats that were cooked fresh in front of you on the grill. There is a choice of two different restaurants to eat in, one more formal than the other. The waiters were excellent and service was efficient and friendly. I must make a special mention to Dani in the Cafe Bar, who always had a smile and friendly word for everyone. Drinks in the bar were reasonably priced, although this was helped by the decent rate for the pound against the Euro when we went. Since it was the start of the season the entertainment was very low key which suits us. Andy the resident musician is good and Lisa the Thomson rep was keen to ensure that everyone was happy. We did an 'Island Tour' with a company called Menorca Ticket, who are based in the square about 300 yards from the hotel. It was excellent and incorporated Es Grau a lovely nature reserve. They also do a trip to Cuitadella which we enjoyed. It's definitely worth popping in before you book more expensive trips with Thomson, to ensure you visit the specific places you want to see. There wasn't a problem with sunbeds when we were there, but the hotel was not full so not sure how it would have been if more people were staying. We had no major problems at the hotel and all the staff were courteous and friendly and we would definitely stay there again. Another positive was the free Wi-Fi which we managed to pick up most places around the hotel.More

Peace and Sun
We have just returned from one of our best holidays in years.The hotel is modern and adults only.Our room had a sea view overlooking the beautiful beach they have in resort. The food was cooked fresh and had a great selection.The hotel did have two restaurants however we felt the 4th level did have more of a restaurant feel.Each member of staff in the hotel was friendly and polite (even the cleaners) The only thing I would suggest is that the bathroom needs more storage space as we did struggle to make space for our toiletries. I do need to make a special mention to our thomson rep Adam.It was his first week at the hotel however it seemed he had being doing the job for years.Everywhere we went he seemed to be ready to help us.At our welcome meeting on Sunday morning he seemed to be lone working (I believe the hotel has two reps) but still made time to speak to each guest.A professional young man who made our holiday. Thank Audax we shall be seeing you again......More

We have just returned from Menorca having had a week at Cala Galdana staying at The Audax Hotel. We enjoyed our stay at the Audax but could not understand the wonderful reviews we read before booking it. Our room 322 was small and cramped and lacked sufficient furniture to enable it to be comfortable for two, there was only one armchair so one of us always had to sit on the bed. The beds themselves were old and a bit decrepit and not in the least bit comfortable, though the bedding provided was clean and fresh. The bathroom was adequate though it had a bath rather than a shower that the Thomson's brochure lead us to expect. We had a complimentary room for half an hour on our last day after we had checked out and the room 201 had adequate space was well furnished and if it had had a balcony or terrace with an outlook would have been an almost perfect room for us. The reception area was not welcoming to our perception and the furniture in it's surroundings was sparse and not very comfortable, very much furniture bought for it's clean modern lines with little consideration for its function as a comfortable relaxation area. Similarly the lounge are of the Blue bar had the same furnishings and continual large screen television football that made it anything but a place to go and relax for an after dinner coffee or drink with other guests. In fact we never found the comfortable, quiet relaxed place where the guests would congregate after dinner that we have found elsewhere. The meals we only had in the Galdana restaurant as that opened it's doors at what was to us a rather late meal time of 7pm whilst to even sample the meals in the Olivia restaurant would have meant an even later start at 7.30pm. Breakfast we enjoyed and it could not have provided us with more. The evening meal was a bit more if a lottery, get the choice right and the food was excellent, even though the choice of green vegetables was inevitably cold before getting back to our table. As a customer I always feel that providing water to the table and after dinner coffe should be something that hotel restaurants should provide, but of those we have visited few actually do. The staff at the Hotel were always smiling, friendly and helpful, they make the stay memorable. They gave the impression that they would do anything that they could to make the holiday memorable. We hired a car from Owners Cars just up the road from the hotel, I checked the price in January and booked a car and then checked monthly until we went, as the price fell I was able to cancel the old booking without charge and rebook at the lower price and over the 3 months the price fell by 40euros. The charge for fuel seems high but the nearest garage is several miles away and by taking the car on a full empty basis with refunds given for fuel not used my car for 6 days cost only 91 euros including everything.More
