Hotel Audax & Wellness Centre  

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.

NOT a 4star plus or 5star hotel

if you are over 40in waist you will not be able to sit on the balcony chairs if you do manage to sit you cannot put your arms down to your side also the meal at night English clients were not catered for no vegetables and you had to wait for your meat to be cooked also there was no ham etc for a salad only cheese and spicy sausage and if you ordered a bottle of still water the cost of an one euro bottle would cost you 5 euros we opted for half board at a cost of £1,750 for a week but that did include your flights as well for that price your could have stayed on the Spanish Mainland for 4 weeks and still had change in your pocket will not be going againMore

Great location, staff and service!

We just returned from a week stay at the Artiem. We highly recommend staying here, definitely the best location and value in the Cala Galdana area. The staff and rooms are the best part. We had booked a sea view room and loved our room, but happened to ask if there were any rooms available with a better view. We spent 3 days in our original room and then upgraded for a small fee to room 634. This is the very best room in the resort. Full panoramic view of the beach, bay, open ocean and more! The room completely changed our stay and made it that much better. The staff was excellent, especially Francesca. She was top notch and helped us out with our entire trip! We did not eat at the restaurants other than the breakfast which was great! Can't wait to go back!More


Big Disappointment!!

We just came back from a 5 nights stay in the hotel. My bottom line - big disappointment. We expected much more for the price we paid (c. $300 per night) and especially given the high rating. 1. Rooms - The most important thing to know - rooms are VERY SMALL and VERY BASIC. There is barley space to walk between the bed and the wall (we had a standard room). The balcony we had was also very small and could barley fit two chairs. 2. Bed - the bed is clearly cheap and somewhat uncomfortable. My wife is pregnant and had hard time sleeping in this bed but I was OK although this is definitely not a bed I would like to remember. 3. View - Another important issue is the view which is terrible. The hotel sits right in front of a hill so most rooms get NO VIEW and NO SUN. We had a room that faced the hill which to my understanding is considered good view. Most rooms face the pool so everyone in the pool can see into their rooms and also get no sun. 4. Service - another terrible issue. Given all of the above, we were very disappointed. We waited a long time for the vacation and expected something very different. The hotel staff and especially the reservation team were unwilling to help and quite rude. When we asked to switch rooms, all we were offered is an even worse room with two separate beds even though they could see we are a couple!! We therefore asked to cancel our reservation and switch hotels, even if not immediately but rather after two night so at least part of our vacation is saved. The reservation team insisted we pay a full penalty on one hand, and on the other hand refused to assist with switching rooms so we were forced by the hotel to stay. Non of our requests helped. This is perhaps the most important thing. Things can change in a vacation and you may need the hotel's help. This hotel staff will not give it to you and is very non flexible. 5. WIFI - finally, our room had very poor WIFI. The hotel has a couple of computer in the lobby but you have to pay EURO 4 for 30 minutes! Obviously, the hotel did not mind when we explained that our WIFI signal is very poor and I needed to go online for work purposes. Again, zero flexibility and zero help. Bottom line - we actually loved Menorca and enjoyed our time there despite the hotel and not because of it. We do not expect to come back to the Artiem chain of hotels ever againMore

Zohar C,

Great hotel and friendly staff

The hotel is of high quality yet not pretentious, the staff is very helpful and kind. We opted for a bed and breakfast treatment which gave us more freedom to explore the island (the hotel is situated in a strategical point, between Cala Macarella and Cala Mitjana). Food and drinks in the bars of the hotel are really good. Prices are balanced with the service and the quality.More

Alberto V,

Enjoyable stay, just a few points away from being excellent

Having just returned from an enjoyable stay in the Artiem Audax, I had a wonderful stay in Cala Galdana, not only to the lovely resort but also down to the hotel as well. I have visited Cala Galdana many times now over the years and have stayed in a variety of places from the Sol Gavilanes (now the Melia), Hotel Cala Galdana and also the self catering Galdana Gardens. This year I had a sea view room on one of the lower levels, but despite only just being above the bar area it still had some fantastic views looking over towards the beach and the small port heading down the river. After walking around the hotel during my stay I feel that paying the bit extra for the sea view was well worth doing considering that some rooms at the back of the hotel either look out onto the pool area or are below the pool level and so just look towards a patio area which residents walk over to get up to the pool. Despite only being just above the bar area on the reception level the nightly performances weren't an issue in terms of distracting us from sleeping once the balcony door was shut. We couldn't hear a thing! Typically the entertainment went on until 11.30pm each night and consisted of numerous musical performances. I opted for the half board package in the hotel, which included breakfast and our evening meal in one of the two restaurants on floors 4 and 5. There was also the pool side bar La Colina (I think) which you had to pay extra for food and drinks but I didn't try anything here during our stay. Both of the restaurants operate in a buffet style and what is on offer changes daily. Both had a selection of salads, local meats and cheeses to help yourself to which were very tasty, then they provided different starters and main course options that you could choose, for example soups and more specific salads to start. Then for the mains there was either a choice of meats and fish which were cooked fresh for you by two chefs, and also other courses (such as on the Asian night there were meals such as sweet and sour chicken and pad thai which were cooked fresh in a wok for you as you watched and waited) Whilst walking around the hotel and going about my daily activities the staff, from the moment we got there, were all exceptionally helpful and polite. A few stood out during my stay; • Joaquim - The chef in the restaurant on level 5 very quickly remembered what I enjoyed from the fresh meat and fish selection being cooked and also how I liked my choices to be cooked. This was even when we didn't eat at the same restaurant each night, we typically took it in turns between the two. I think it certainly shows that he enjoys his interaction with the guests in the hotel, as it wasn't just remembering what I liked but his friendliness to other guests which I overheard was enjoyed by all. • Marlana - I think this is more luck, but each morning for breakfast we ended up sitting in the area of tables which Marlana was responsible for in the restaurant on level 4. Despite the early starts each day I don't remember ever seeing her without a smile on her face. She was always very prompt at helping to clear away and keep her area tidy which was definitely appreciated. • I didn't catch his name, but I feel he might go slightly unnoticed compared to other members of staff in the hotel who perhaps guests would interact more with, and that is the lifeguard around the pool area. During all the time I spent around the pool I don't think I saw him stand still for more than a few minutes. He was constantly helping to maintain a high standard around the swimming pool from helping to make sure that everywhere was spotless, such as the showers and steps getting in and out of the pool, to very quickly helping out when there a sudden gust of wind catching the umbrellas and lifting them out of their holders. I think it's a great testament to his hard work and attention to detail that the pool area was a very nice place to be. To summarise here are some of my highlights and creative comments from my stay Positives • Wonderful views from the sea view rooms • Wide selection of food, with different options every night • Despite La Colina typically being a restaurant where you would be paying to eat in, the staff there weren't pushy at all and were very friendly even if you were just having a sit in the shade and not ordering anything. We noticed this many times where we just wanting a break from the sun and so sat near the bar area. • It is an adults only hotel and so everywhere from the restaurants to the pool were very calm and peaceful. Negatives • Drinks aren't cheap. €5 for a pint of Estrella or even €6 for a pint of the Menorcan lager in the bar downstairs perhaps stopped us from spending more evenings in there. Whilst eating at night as well you would have to pay €6 for 1litre of water which we thought was asking a bit much. I appreciate the other hotels in the resort charge similarly, and we do enjoy having a drink when eating but €6 for water is just a bit ridiculous. • In our room because of the way it's been designed we couldn't really feel the air conditioning at all which did mean at night it did get hot and sticky at times.More
