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.

6 outdoor pools
From playful to peaceful, there's a great variety on offer when it comes to the pool scene. With a river-like pool, a splash number and a bigger, quiet affair with terraces. There's plenty of sunbeds and parasols dotted around the pools for you to relax on.

First ever trip to Menorca
This was our first visit after the reviews on here, we decided to book it last minute. On arrival, the staff at the hotel were very friendly and spoke good english. We were taken to our room, where we found it was basic, I mean it's all you can expect for the price we paid. However as me and my brother are older (21 and 18) this place would be perfect if we were 10 years younger, so there wasn't really anything for us to do, as all the pools were childrens pools, so we found cuitdella a good place to go to for something to do. There is a bus to cuitdella, but for 4 adults it was â¬2 more to go in a taxi, there and back. The food at the restaraunt is perfect for lunch time snacks etc, we did eat in the evening there once but because of all the local restraunts being so close together it was very cheap everywhere, so we ate all kinds of food. Overall a very good stay, and we would stay in the same area, just not at the hotel, not because it was bad, it's just more for families with younger children, not teenagers or young adults.More

Excellent first holiday to menorca
Just got back from a two week holiday here, absolutely brilliant for the kids and us parents, lots of entertainment for all ages, Rachel and cassie the entertainment reps worked hard day and night to keep everyone happy, the choice of pools was fab, we spent most of the time round the main pool but did use the restaurant pool and splash park pool a few times, the food here was lovely can't complain about any of it really, it was absolutely sweltering in the evening and the ceiling fans didn't do anything but it was a heatwave at the time so can't blame hotel staff for this. Can't wait to go back here on our next holiday More
We were at the Talayot for 10 nights in sweltering accomadation. The hotel reception staff are unhelpful and happy to fleece you for money for fans wifi etc. Both of which are sub standard. To try and keep my young family cool I have had to pay 80 euros for an air conditioning unit and two fans. They are going 24 hours a day and the room is still 30 degrees Celsius and is unbearable. The reps are not much help either. Menorca is a lovely island great beeches, family restaurants but you need accomadation that suits the hot climate which this one is not!!!!More
Good hotel, dwindling resort
These apartments are excellent, well stocked with everything you need, yes you do have to pay for a lot of extras like safes and WiFi but it's relatively inexpensive. The restaurant on sight is excellent value for money and the portions huge. My only negative would be the spare ribs, tough as old boots. They'll do you other sides if you're not a fan of rice (which seems to be served with 80% of mains). Pool areas are a little crowded round main pool but we were in R block and was very quiet. Some days we were the only ones around it till 2pm...made me laugh that someone had put the pools were sea water....they're not, it's the amount of sweat off people's bodies that can't be washed off before going in pool due to poolside shower not working. Cleanliness is of high standards...everywhere on complex is spotless...staff all courteous....and any problems soon rectified. Our ceiling fan broke the second night and was replaced next morning with replacement fan given within the hour of reporting it. The entertainment is a little mixed, the Disney show is a must if you have young kids, the magician is worth a miss. Next...the resort. We came here 7yrs ago and it was a bustling little resort. Now, so much has closed. We're reliably informed this is due to the amount of all inclusive hotels now springing up. I find it sad that this has happened. With good places to eat like Haiti, Es Pitus, and frankies (huge portions!) Its a shame. We sadly won't return to cala'n forcat as it's dying, but the Talayots is a very very good hotel. If you're more adventurous and car it everywhere it's a perfect base. Highly recommended!More

second great visit and will be back again!
this is our second time to talayots. we are going back again in October too! we are two adults, no kids and still have a great time, there are quite a few couples as well as families because it is still a nice place for adults! we always stay in F block because it is away from all the pools and it's quiet. the pool at T block is our fav because it's fairly quiet depending on school holidays ect. ate at the restaurant once at the end of the holiday and it was very nice. there are quite a few restaurants on the 'strip' I would defiantly recommend 'Haiti' and 'park ayre' (think that's spelt wrong) but you can use the water parks wifi from it and it's got a pool table and bouncy castle for kids. you can get a 20 minute bus ride in to cuitadella for about 3 euros and they run till 11:50pm so I would defo recommend a couple of visits per holiday (shopping in the day, market on Thursday and dinner by the harbour in the evening with night time trinket stools all round the harbour). there is a pirate cove beach with lovely clear water if you come out of Talayots and turn left for 10 minute walk, small but very nice and some snack bars there. the reps seem nice and have a natural flare with children! lots of families entrusted there children with them in the kids club to get a couple of hours relaxing. also apparently you can book a massage in the spa for 40 euros for an hour but I only found that out on the last day. the apartments are very comfy, all the amenities you need. but take or buy tin foil because the oven tray isn't non sick! the shop across the road has everything you need and a reasonable price 1.85 euros for 2 litre bottle of drink, the baguettes are lovely and fresh too. wifi is 11 euros for the week and works great and all staff are lovely, you even get daily maid service. ok only one criticism! please, talayots can you get furniture felt stoppers so that you can't hear the other apartments moving their tables and chairs around when I'm having a siesta :) would defiantly recommend this holiday!More
