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 6 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.
Designed for 3 to 11 year olds, Thomson Kids’ Club offers 2 hours of activities, 5 or 6 days a week. And that includes at least 3 evenings. It’s split into sections, with Tots for 3 to 5 year olds, Team for 6 to 8s, and Tribe for 9 to 11s. Best of all, most kids’ clubs activities are completely free. And outside of peak season, there are parent and toddler sessions 3 days a week, too. For your peace of mind, all Thomson Kids’ Club staff have advance DBS checks and hold NVQ Level 2 childcare qualifications. They’re First Aid trained, and there’ll be at least 2 of them on duty at all times.
Stayed from 25-29 October. Booked it last min for the 4 of us. The kids loved it as we were right next to the kids area. We were in B2. Blocks A and E are good for 2 bed but for one bed block B was brill. Entertainment was good but it was repetative every night for the kids. Same words said by the reps same songs played. The restaurant was very poor as it took over 45 mins to get your order and when it came the food wasn't nice at all. As we are vegetarians we found there wasn't much variety at all. It was a Pitty we were not also told that it is end of season in menorrca so there were only 2 other restaurants open outside the resort. It was a ghost town otherwise. I can imagine it being really lively in peak season but in October it was totally dead. Cuttedella is 7 mins in a taxi and is worth going. Has nice restaurants n bars. The trip to Mahon was over rated and didn't enjoy that. There are beautiful coves n beaches around the hotel which are worth exploring. Overall a good quick holiday with the kids.More
October in Menorca
This was our first time in Cala n' Forcat.....but probably not our last. We stayed for 10 nights from 1st October in the Talayot Apartments and I can only endorse what other reviewers have already said. Okay it's not the Hilton, but in terms of value for money, you can't beat it.
Rooms are pretty basic but clean and tidy with cleaners around all the time (even when you're having a late breakfast!). We stayed in R Block which is across the road from the main apartments. Plenty of sunbeds and two pools; one for the youngsters and one for the adults, although there were a few younger ones in there as well.
Weather was absolutely superb for the time of year, hitting 30C on a few days. The beaches are a few minutes walk away, both quiet little inlets but enough sandy areas for all who ventured down.
Because of the time of year (late season) some of the nightlife areas had closed and others closed while we were there, however there were enough open to keep us occupied. Of the restaurants, we enjoyed L'Ancora the most and Frankies bar had karaoke every night so was quite lively.
My wife loved it and suggests a return next year....who knows.More

Spent a week here in October 2014, very nice location, site caters for young families, however we are both 60. Think it is ideal for families, has every thing they would need. For us it was fine as out and about each day. Did try the on site restaurant, for Sunday lunch, but have to say wish we hadn't, packet or frozen is the description. Lovely restaurant, L'anchorge, or name like that, very very nice, quite happy to recommend it. Beware if you go in October, it appears 2/3 of resort is closed ,however had great weather.More

october break in menorca
we had an excellent holiday at the talayot apartments in menorca. the complex had everything we needed and was kept clean and tidy everywhere. the staff and thomson reps were all very helpful and nothing was too much trouble . we were offered a downstairs apartment at first which was next to the restaurant and entertainment area. this apartment was very nice but the noise was too much for us, so we asked to be moved to another apartment. this was done a day or so later, and this time we were given an upstairs apartment. this was much better and had its own patio/ sunning area. this was perfect and we spent most afternoons sunbathing there as the weather was superb. we would recommend the talayots to anyone, either with or without children. there are lots for children to do and lots of entertainment which was good. the best part was the trip to mahon for the boat trip and gin and market trip. we walked to cuidadella 3 times which took about 1 hour each way. the nearest beach was about 15 minutes walk away and was quite nice. good restaurants are about 10 minutes walk away and a few shops. bus stop outside apartments.More
