There’s a big choice of pools at this friendly apartment complex, which is a hit with families.
There’s a definite family vibe at these apartments with six pools dotted around. Some are lively, others peaceful, and they include a one that’s like a river and a children’s splash pool with slides.
You’ll find this hotel between Cala’n Forcat, a lively beach town, and the sandy cove of Cala’n Blanes – both are about a 15-minute walk away. You’ll find a clutch of shops and restaurants just outside the complex.

We've recently come back from the Talayot, stayed for a week with a 2 year old. It was our first holiday abroad with our child, so we had a good time and enjoyed our stay regardless of the basic service and average amenities provided by the Talayot. Starting with the apartment, it's basic but expected as much. Kitchenette had everything you'd need to make breakfast and some quick lunches. The place was spotless when we arrived, but was hardly cleaned during our stay. Towels and bedding were changed, but that's about it. I had to sweep up daily. One day the cleaners never came at all. There's no air conditioning, not that we needed it for the beginning of September, but could be an issue in the height of summer. We spent a lot of our time around the main pool and the kids splash pool. Both were fine, and cleaned every morning. Our kid loved the splash pool. No issues getting a sun bed during our stay, although some people did go out and reserve their spot very early, with one family leaving their towels down for their entire stay(!). We found the poolside entertainment very irritating, and certainly won't miss party on the bridge or party in the pool. On the first night we had our worst meal of the stay, in the on-site restaurant. We had one undercooked chicken, and one overcooked. The overcooked one was probably over cooked a week prior. Also, the service was very poor. We enjoyed the food from nearby L'Ancora, opposite Frankies. They were really friendly, and there was always a good atmosphere. They had the BBQ going most nights. We tried a couple of others for dinner... Los Delfines & Es Replec were good. The Shopping Bar was good for a beer or cocktail. Unfortunately the resort has probably had its heyday. A lot of places have closed, permanently, and not just for end of season. It's looking very tired and outdated and could do with some serious investment. There's a water park, which we never used, so can't comment on that. Never went to Jimmy Hills, but its supposedly meant to be good for evening entertainment. Apparently, all inclusive offerings have killed the place. The supermarket across the road is good, well stocked and not too expensive, we didn't feel the need to visit the local Lidl. There's a bus right outside the hotel that will take you to Cuitadella, a beautiful bustling port side town. We loved this place. There's some really good restaurants here, and some lovely little shops. Sa Bona Birra is great, if you like your craft beer. The Herbera bakery is a must, lovely pastries and coffee. You've gotta try the ensaimada. Would love to return here to Cuitadella. Cala'n Forcat, not so much.More
Just returned from here and have to say we were very disappointed , a Thompson travel rep pretty much talked us into giving this resort a go as we have never been to Menorca at all and just needed a week away and this came in at a cheap price . on the plus side the room was very well equipped and the staff and local Spanish people were very pleasant and always helpful ,had some great food at Es Replec and The Yucca , at Cala'n Boch beach we always ate at sa cova nice people there that always looked after us , that's where it stoped . Our room barely saw a towel change the floor only ever had a quick flick over and NEVER had a change of bedsheets . the most expensive WiFi ever encountered charge for this charge for that then taxed at the hotel for being a tourist!!! the resort itself is very run down with quite a few derelict and empty buildings , everything else is bloody blackpool in the sun with shops selling the same rubbish , most restaurants sold the same sort of thing burgers pitza's steak kebab's or paella ! someone referred to the class of people that use this hotel as benefit brits , pretty much that sort of class of people to be honest heard one woman scream at here child ' Come here ya little sh##t ' pretty much heard that sort of attitude all day long .By the way these kids should have been in school ! would we return ? Ha Ha Ha Ha never never never .More
This was our second visit to the Talayot Apartments - first being in 2011. We decided to return as there were good facilities for children and the cost of the holiday was reasonable considering there were five of us and going towards end of August. They have built a new reception area and spa area since our last visit. We felt that the money would have been better invested in the apartments. We were placed in the T block. This is towards the back of the complex across a small road. Although we had a small pool and it was never crowded although the beds were reserved very early so you had to get down their quick to make sure you had a bed. As others have said, the beds had towels on throughout the day but no one using them. The T block is positioned very close to the pool pump which is going continuously throughout the night so if you're looking for a peaceful nights sleep, forget it. The apartment is very basic and although clean, we had infestations of ants in the kitchen several times and the same cockroach in the apartment two nights on the trot. It was massive! We got it out of the apartment on the two occasions. You have to pay for WiFi for each device you have and can specify how many days you require. The restaurant facilities are quite nice - basic. The town is a little run down which is a shame, however, if you venture further down the town, there are a few really nice restaurants. One in particular towards the end of the town near the crossroads - you go down the steps to it - I think it was called Bianco. They present the kids meals in trains/rockets etc, so that went down really well. We ate there on three occasions as the food was lovely and not too pricey. Lots of restaurants with bouncy castles etc. We went to the water park two days -there are discounts if you purchase tickets for two days etc and you have to present your passport. Water park is great - lots to do there and restaurant is very good too. Weather was a little hit and miss at the end of August. There was a thunderstorm the day before we were coming home with torrential rain. The following day was beautiful and sunny. The beach is very small and was very crowded when we went on the Sunday. We found another beach off a pathway - it's near a supermarket and at the back of the water park. Very small again so not suitable for very small children as rough terrain in getting to it. On the whole, we had a good holiday but unfortunately we would not return to the Talayot again. It has definitely changed in the intervening years since our first visit and not for the better.More

Fantastic Holiday, brilliant Hotell!!
First of all... I can't believe the hotel is only a 2 star ! This was our first holiday as parents with a toddler, we were nervous about what to expect! But this is a brilliant hotel with lots of pools, you can relax by the quieter pools, have fun in the main big pool or paddle with the kiddies in the baby pools! So many pools, it's great! AND if it rains (which it did for us) they have a pool inside the hotel too but you do have to pay for this. Our experience with Talayot was perfect! The beach is a 5 minute walk, there is a supermarket opposite the hotel & your straight out onto the bars & restaurants! If you are wanting a cheap & cheerful holiday go here!! We got talking to families that go every year which I think is lovely! I would definitely recommend this hotel! All the staff are so lovely & polite, they made our holiday! And the food in the restaurants on the strip is just amazing & so cheap!More
Overall Good Holiday! ... few flaws.
We've just returned after 10 days at Talayot Apartments and overall we had a good family holiday. Our check in was quick and easy with plenty of information about the resort which was a good start. Our apartment (F Block) was clean and well equipped for self- catering. Hotel itself was Great with a good restaurant, good evening entertainment and very friendly staff. Perfect for kids with a choice of pools and plenty of daytime activities to get involved in. The reps done a great job keeping them busy. The Resort itself had many bars and restaurants within a 5 minute walk from the hotel so was a good location. Jimmy Hill's Bar (square) being our favourite live entertainment- Must visit! Every bar and restaurant had play areas for the kids which was great. We thought the beaches were a hard work to access especially if you have a push chair like we did.. Cala Blanes beach being the easiest to get to (10 min walk from hotel) with a bar and restaurant. Lovely looking beaches in a cove like setting. Few Downpoints!....... Ajoining doors in the apartments is a massive NO NO.. we could hear everything in the next apartment and ours was linking our bedroom to next doors living space which was very noisy- especially with our infant sleeping. Extra charge for a cot to be put in our apartment which we thought was very cheeky and penny pinching in our opinion. No air-conditioning unless you pay the extra cost. many abandoned shops and restaurants within the resort was a shame as it could be better. Overall we had a good holiday and a good experience at Talayot.More
