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.
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.

Fabulous family holiday. Our 3 old daughter loved it, plenty of entertainment to keep her occupied. Rooms were clean and had everything you need. All the restaurants and bars had children's play areas with trampoline etc. I would recommend hopping on the bus from outside of the hotel and going into cuitidella for the day. More
Fabulous for families
Clean, well appointed apartments that are well situated out to ensure privacy. All the swimming pools are lovely with ample sunbeds. The kids club is first class. On site restaurant was a bit hit or miss but there are excellent restaurants in walking distance. More

Great October holiday at v cheap price
We stayed at The Talayot from 17th - 24th October and it was great value. I have no idea why it is officially only 2 keys - it should be at least a 3, maybe a 4.
We had a 2-bedroomed apartment which was very spacious and just the job for the four of us (me & hubby plus 2 kids age 9 and 7). The only downside was that our terrace was in the shade but we probably could have asked to move although we'd unpacked by then so made do.
As others have said the rooms are dated but that didn't affect our enjoyment of the holiday, everything we needed was in the apartment - a toaster, kettle, microwave, hob and little oven.
We were in C5 just a few steps away from the main pool but it wasn't noisy at all.
Pirates cove is definitely the best beach - it only takes 5 mins to walk to (turn left out of the hotel and keep going then down the slope) and was really good, shallow for quite a long way and fish swimming around your feet - we hired the pedalo's out with the slide on which the kids enjoyed. Because it was near the end of season we also made use of the sunbeds on the beach and weren't charged for them. The sea was definitely warmer than the pools at the hotel which was FREEZING!
We walked into Cituadella one day, a lovely walk round the top of the coast - not that far - took about half an hour I think and nice to see a different place - good if you like shopping as its much busier with lots of different shops (and a Burger King if that's your thing!). Pretty harbour with plenty of opportunities for decent photos.
We ate in the hotel twice, once on bbq night which was good value and once for a Sunday Roast, which was passable, but not the best I've ever tasted. My personal favourite was the Black Horse (or was it White? Can't remember) for fish and chips - they've got proper chip shop fryers and it was totally delicious. We also tried most of the other places recommended on here - all were good.
Entertainment was varied - a few nights were brilliant and some were abysmal - watching the entertainment staff mime to songs isn't really entertainment in my book - particularly as Cassie was actually a really good singer - why on earth not let her sing? The acts bought in were good though, although watch for them trying to sell having their photos taken with you.
Both kids went to kids club, my 7 year old loved it and wanted to go everyday, my 9 year old was less keen as the older group he should have been in was merged with the younger ones because it was end of season so it didn't interest him.
It was a shame the water park shuts in September so we couldn't make use of that.
Spar opposite the hotel was large enough that it had everything we needed and prices weren't overly inflated.
Overall, I'd go back again, I was v impressed, although perhaps wouldn't want to go in the school summer hols in the height of summer with no air-con, having only paid Â£706 it was a very good holiday.More
This hotel is more than a three star as listed, 6 swimming pools what more could you want. Apartments are airy the shop across the road Is well equipped there is a large water park just 100 metres down the road. Beach is a 20 minute walk away.More

A great value holiday!
A very well looked after complex, especially since they were winding down for closing for the season the week we were there. Apartments are clean, though a little dated, but the small TV was in the most ridiculous position on the wall which made it impossible to watch (essential when you have a 3 year old!) After speaking to reception, a man arrived the next day with a nice big telly on a stand for us to use. Great service! We also got the same man to remove one of the fixed bedside tables for the wall so we could move the beds over to make room for our 3 year old to sleep on a mattress next to us.
The reps were great, as was the kids club. Didn't rate the food too highly in the restaurant, felt there were better options not too far away. Park Aire was great - good food, cold beer and plenty of entertainment for the wee one. We also had a couple of nice meals in L'Ancora.
The whole complex and resort is set up for families and our wee one loved it. The nearby beach at Cala n Blanes is excellent, with a lovely restaurant / bar set in to the cliff.
Would we come back? Possibly if we fiound another good deal!More
