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 2 restaurants serving Mediterranean classics.
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.
Just returned from a pleasant week in Menorca at this adult only hotel. Great for some folk - no kids anywhere in the hotel. Well located for the beach and the walks nearby. We thought our sea view room was well equipped and comfortable, We enjoyed the wide range of food in the "Olivia" restaurant and pool area that had plenty of loungers. We dont know whether this would be so at the height of the season. We were disappointed that the continental breakfast was not being served on the terrace. The staff were friendly and helpful and we felt that the bar prices were very reasonable.
THE BIG DOWNSIDE WAS THE UTTER FIASCO OF TUI THOMSON OVER THE INITIAL BOOKING. They lost our booking, personal details, holiday details and even the deposit paid with a debit card. After talking to five different "advisors" and e-mailing the company 4 times - on the phone and computer for hours they denied ever having heard of us and wouldn't even look into it ! The situation was only finally resolved by our bank who investigated the initial payment and provided transcripts that we took to a Thomson TUI office and refused to budge before they started to investigate. Then promises to phone back were ignored and staff unavailable !
Our lesson for us was - nice hotel but beware of TUI THOMSON'S total incompetence and seeming indifference.More

What a beautiful hotel. Sparkling clean everywhere. Cala Galdana itself very quiet, but had a very relaxing enjoyable holiday. Preferred the Galdana restaurant on the 4th floor, just a more relaxed atmosphere. Always got a sun bed. Room was on the 7th floor and it was lovely. Would recommend but if you want a slightly lively resort, it's not for you!More
Lovely hotel and picturesque resort!
We stayed for a week at the end of September. We originally stayed in another resort on the island 13 years ago and stopped here on an excursion and promised ourselves we would come back one day! Despite going into the beginning of October weather was fantastic, very warm. I emailed the hotel two weeks before requesting a high up balcony overlooking the pool and that's what we got. Room was very clean but warm, air conditioning did not appear to be on most of the time. We did report it to reception. Apart from that we were impressed with the hotel, staff worked very hard and were very helpful. My husband is a vegetarian and there was some vegetarian food on the buffet but if you asked for a vegetarian menu when you are seated they have lots of choice which they cook fresh for you and bring to the table. We swapped dinner for lunch one day and if you turn right from the Audax up the hill there are some very good restaurants for lunch or dinner which are very reasonable in price. We were especially impressed with the staff at the Blue Cafe and one night during dinner I realised I had left my I pad in the bar and when I went down to report it the bar staff were going around trying to find the owner for it. The beach is fantastic, the sea very clear and my husband enjoyed snorkelling for the first time, you can purchase a snorkel in the local shops. The Thomson reps keep in a room a selection of beach mats, lilos etc which you can borrow free of charge for the week. Overall we were impressed with the resort and the hotel. We are seriously considering going back next year and feel the holiday here is very good value for money.More

Fabulous adults only holiday
My husband and I stayed at the Audax Hotel for a week at the beginning of September. We absolutely loved it. We booked the holiday to relax after a manic few weeks for my 50th and this was the ideal place. We had never been to Menorca before and had been told that Cala Galdana was one if the prettiest bays and how true... Cala Galdana is a small horseshoe shaped bay and the Audax is at one end. It takes approx 15 / 20 mins to walk around the bay. The beach is public, and there are charges to use beds and parasols, but the hotel lend beach mats free of charge. The bar of the hotel overlooks the beach. There are bars and restaurants all round the bay. The hotel itself is very modern and clean. The grounds and pool area are immaculate, as are all the public areas. We paid for an upgrade to a room with a jacuzzi, but we weren't very impressed as it turned out to be a standard bath stuck in the middle of the room with a few water jets in it !!! There were no photos of it in the brochure, and we had visions of a hot tub on the balcony !! We did however get an iPad in the room as part of the upgrade which we didn't know about, so it wasn't all bad !! We booked half board, which is breakfast and evening meal, but you can trade the evening meal for lunch, and then go out in the evening. The food was really good, buffet style for both breakfast and dinner. Lots of choice and always fresh and hot. There was a chef there every evening cooking fresh meat and fish to order as well as a whole variety of other dishes and veg. And the sweet table was amazing, at least 10 or 15 assorted deserts every night. The hotel has a fabulous spa and hydra therapy pool. We paid 22 Euros for an hour and a half in the pools, showers, steam rooms and saunas, and if we had been there longer we would have done it again, we literally floated out... Very relaxing. We used the pool daily and never had any problems getting beds, the hotel provides beach towels, 1 each on arrival and then you can change them mid week. If I had one criticism about the hotel, it would be the evening entertainment in the bar - very old fashioned. During the week we were there there was only one contemporary act, a young bloke singing with a guitar, who was very good, the rest of the time it was very out dated. This is an adult only hotel and therefore the clientele tends to be more mature, but I'm 50 and jazz and 70s middle of the road rock just doesn't do it for me, so as soon as the entertainment started, we moved on to local bars who had entertainment motte to our taste. We will definitely be returning to Menorca, and will definitely stay at the Audax again.More

Just a quick review ... This is a very pleasant hotel, the best point being the wonderful staff. I'd particularly like to mention the young German Maitre D at the Olivia restaurant (Janis?) who made every single person feel like they were the most important guest. We preferred this restaurant to the other which was a bit chilly and too brightly lit. The food was great, and plenty of veggie options.
We had a sea view room on the 5th floor which also overlooked the front entrance road - noisy when buses arive but view of sea and cliffs was lovely. It was very clean, beds comfy (they'll ensure a double if you ask, rather than a twin) and bathroom fine. No 5* luxury but adequate. Air con only worked when balcony door shut. Room rather small but it was fine. We had a bottle of champers and fruit kebabs to greet us, a nice touch. We did view a junior suite as there was one available and it was very nice, but the view wasn't, so we opted for a standard double. Would have been nice to have better coffee provided (I found some instant sachets in local shop which almost tasted like filter coffee).
The beach is a few minutes walk away and is lovely. Good weather most days. One spectacular night time thunder storm during which our beach towels blew away, never to be found, but the hotel replaced them without charge.
Hotel gym ... Aircon could be better, also had to remind staff to replace plastic water cups. Only one floor mat, which I also mentioned to them. Apart from that it was fine for a hotel gym and helped work off a few calories from the lovely food. There are also excellent walks along the cliffs and woods locally.
The night-time entertainment was mostly great fun. We missed the Freddie Mercury tribute, but there was plenty more to enjoy, especially the Beatles tribute band. All the oldies were up and bopping which was wonderful to see. Flamenco night also brilliant except that I was made to get on stage and dance with them!
Great stay, very enjoyable. Basic, but very nice. Enjoy!More
