Talayot Apartments  

Loading

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.

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.

5 go on a two week holiday

Second visit to the Talayot Apts, 1 - 15 August this time spent in a two bedroom apt, which met our needs however, air con would be great. 30 euros to use the safe with a 3 euro deposit rather extortionate, My firm only charge £2 with a £5 deposit. think it should be other way around. Stayed in T block which is quite a quiet area, be aware no lifeguards and the amount of people putting in rather large inflatable into a small pool area, making swimming and playing difficult, but that was because people just dont think about others. Towels out on sunbeds from the day before, (I thought that was a German trick not ours) Cheaper to eat out then in, as captive audience with the local supermarket, handy for small items but meat fruit and veg seriously missing. Apts this time has four ring and proper oven, unlke our last vist with a two ring hob and just a microwavel. Very good for the young children but nothing for teenage kids to do, so my three got a little bored, the shows were the same as last year, so they didnt want to see them again, but the reps show was hilarious. Reps were good and knew their stuff and we found them really pleasant and helpful. The whole site is extremely well kept and clean. Issues were resolved very quickly (i.e. broken flush on loo). ~Water park ok for the young children but older ones were back within 3 hours, bored, so glad I only paid for the one day ticket. A beautiful walk into the City of Citudella, and as it was very hot got the bus back.More

Janice Q,

Great family holiday

We had two week stay at the beginning of August. The complex is very well maintained, and the apartment we had was spotless, was cleaned every day and towels were changed. The staff are so so helpful and nothing is too much trouble - they all are very hardworking. The complex is perfectly set up for families - i have read that the resort is more suited to younger children, however our two children aged 10 and 13 were never bored. There were other kids if similar ages and they both made lots of friends and had plenty to do. T block was definately quieter than the main pool, and the apartments are very well set out. There are some lovely restaurants nearby - yuca and es replec being the best. We also ate at the Talayot which was actually very good too. All in all a brilliant holiday, would definately return.

"Never Again"

This will definitely be our last visit to the Talayot, this is not the great place that it used to be.We arrived after two years since our last visit and the new reception and clubhouse is money well spent. What a shame that money had not been spent bringing T- block up to scratch, old worn out apartments and very basic. They are not what you expect when booking with Thomson, it is definitely not good value for money. It is a shame because the resort is great for families but some of the apartments are well past their best. Cala^n Forcat is like a ghost town and many of the shops of a few years ago are now closed, much to our surprise. Our teenage son struggled to find anything to do as the entertainment is focused on the very young. We will have great memories of the Talayot but i am afraid we will not return.More

OK economical break

Good for an economical break, but don't expect all the trimmings. Apartments are all very close to the group pool, for each cluster. No air con. Ceiling fans. Staff helpful, except that when we arrived to start our holiday at circa 7pm after a day's travel, we found a maid cleaning the room, who clearly thought we were interrupting her work - rather than she being the last thing we needed post arrival. Thorough is good, but not when you want to take a shower in your new accommodation. At least 10 mins, probably 15 min walk from small local breach. Thompson staff all helpful.More

Excellent place for families with young children

I travelled with my wife and two boys aged 9 and 13 to the Talayots for a fortnight's stay from August 1-15. Overall, we found it an excellent place for families with young children but perhaps not early teenagers. That said, early teens are always tough to cater for as they're too old for the Thomson holiday clubs which are for youngsters aged 3-11. And at least there's enough swimming pools on the complex to keep them happy for hours. Some of the pools go down to quite a depth - 2.55m in the one closest to our apartment. Be aware there are no lifeguards so parents have to take full responsibility for their children when they're in the water - as they should do anyway. There is also a paddle tennis court and a six-hole crazy golf course plus plenty of pool tables and arcade machines to keep the early teens occupied when they're not in the pool. Our apartment was very homely with a clean bathroom, good-sized bath and excellent shower. The living room area was clean too with terrific kitchen facilities including a microwave, two-ring hob and a fridge-freezer. The two sofa-beds were fairly basic but generally comfortable. The bedroom featured two single beds next to each other. Basic but very comfortable. There is also a great deal of storage space with two wardrobes with plenty of coat hangers - more than 20 which is a rarity these days. There is no air-conditioning but two ceiling fans pretty much made up for that. There is also a nice patio/terrace area outside your room to sit and enjoy a drink and a bite to eat. Our apartment - T15 - was brilliantly located for the last of the day's sunshine and was a great sun-trap from 4pm until it went down around 8.30/9pm. The TV had mixed reception - remarkably no Sky News but there was ITV, something we've never experienced travelling abroad. The Talayots' own restaurant was terrific and we dined there on more than one occasion. The menu is very extensive with something for all palates. The restaurant features meal deals at night - just 9 euros for a three course dinner - absolutely tremendous value. The nightly entertainment was varied with parrot shows, magicians, dancers, acrobats, singing and dancing. There's also a nightly bingo which we were fortunate to win claiming vouchers worth 100 euros to spend in the restaurant, bar and well-stocked Spar supermarket right opposite the apartments. There's also WiFi for which you pay seven euros for a week's usage. This worked OK and is far better value than the PCs in the reception area which was one euro for 15 minutes.More
