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.

5th return to talayots
as per previous years we booked our family get away to talayots in cala en forcat october 17th till 28th was cheaper this year to do 11 days than it was to do 7 . We have a son that has autism so he doesn't like change very much so returning to menorca was great for him due to knowing what and where things are, enables us to give him some freedom safely. we flew out of stanstead 6.30am arriving in menorca 9.30am, quick passport control on entry due to time of year and collected baggage quickly also, exited arrival hall to be greeted by Thompson representatives to direct us towards relevant coach, The transfer from airport to hotel takes roughly a hour, on arrival at talayots we got the usual friendly greeting and welcoming from susana, room allocated in a block near kids splash pool, ground floor apartment so kids can come and go safely. apartments are basic with all things you need to be comfortable, added bonus this year is a proper fridge freezer, all thats needed now is a better cooker, a two hob pan and a small camping style over is not ideal if you are catering with a big family on a budget,cleaner service including towel and bedding is daily unless you dont want or need it. within the hour all down by the pool to relax and soak up the sun(26 degrees), shop for basic supplies opposite complex so not far to go. as per previous years we booked a car in advance to be delivered the following day via Hiper car rentals, well worth doing this in advance as they have a no hidden costs rental. pay for it in advance, re fuel to full when you hand it back, petrol station at top of road so not a issue to refuel. having the car enables you to get to the supermarkets in the industrial estate along with other shops. The main strip that is the resort starts closing down towards end sept but don't let that put you off unless you enjoy spending hours in the typical great yarmouth, Blackpool tourist trinket shops, still a good few restaurants to choose from, fish and chip bar, Chinese restaurant, pizza/pasta bar, most have some for of bouncy castle for children to play on while waiting for dinner or if you fancy a drink and chill. our custom always goes to leancora which is just outside of talayots to the right, superb staff and manager , well looked after and great with kids, bare in mind that these guys work long long days flat out ,so sometimes you may have to wait a little, your on holiday so relax and soak up the vibe, unlike us brits the spanish are alot more laid back, if your after a budget holiday with a good beach, superb pools , entertainment and a base to explore then talayots for the money is superb, if you want 5 star all mod cons then go somewhere else or stay at home .... a holiday is what you make it , some superb resorts can be accessed by car via a great road network, driving on the island is a doddle due to lack of traffic so dont be afraid to try, top to bottom of island is around a 2 hour drive so gives you a idea of island size and baring in ming speed limit is 90kmph on main road it aint bad. the coves near talayots are a ten minute walk either direction, pirates cove being the main one due to the pirate play ship and bar on the beach. sea is crystal clear with shallow sloping depth for a good couple hundred yards out, hardly any wave motion so kids are perfectly safe. Take a snorkel and explore the cove in safety, various fish and if your lucky octopus will be found.More
Second visit 19 years apart
I would rate this resort good rather than average or very good but benefit of doubt! This was our first holiday abroad when the youngest was 2 and eldest 8 years old. 19 years later we returned to the same hotel but with the family now including our 18 month old grandson. There have been improvements over the years mostly the main building / reception area now a large building housing a large stage with lots of seating. The rooms / apartments are very clean but a tad basic but are okay and as expected. The pool was freezing and not heated so be aware if either end of the season like us. This hotel is great for families especially those with children probably slightly older than our grandson and is geared towards this. The most disappointing thing was the area itself. Whilst accepting it was mid Sept towards the end of the season it was quiet with many bars and restaurants closed down permanently not just because of the time of year. The resort lacked atmosphere and felt run down, not as we remembered. There is a main square in the resort tucked behind bars / shops (Jimmy Hills) that has a central stage for entertainment with the 3 Jimmys plus others all with outside seating facing the stage. This seems to be the main entertainment in the area. As a result of this and all inclusive hotels most other bars (those left but not all) can be very quiet. The acts we saw were very good. Not a resort for beach lovers there is access to the sea via 3 bays near-by that are very small, one with just steps of the rocks and a small beach 10-15 minutes walk away from the resort in Cala Blanes. There are better beach resorts on the island. I would mention the reps in the hotel. Very good. They helped us out when the sons' luggage never turned up for the first 3 days!! keeping us informed and no quibble to compensating us for buying essentials. ThanksMore

Perfect for kids
Myself, my partner and daughter stayed here for 7 nights. Pro's - spacious apartments with good size bathroom - clean room with basic amenities - nice little balcony - perfect selection of pools ranging from baby pools to adult friendly - our apartment had a pool outside which seemed to be a lot quieter - my daughter loved the evening entertainment, typical cheesy butlins syle but it kept her and her new friend happy every night - restaurant on site was good quality and friendly staff -regular housekeeping who were PERFECT - there is a shop across the road that sells everything from blow up pool floats to fresh bread and cakes Cons - our room was located just off site and you have to cross the road to get there - WiFi isn't free :( - Local area was very touristy and mainly burger and chips on offer - I wish we had got a 2 bedroom as daughter didn't sleep too well on the sofa bed so she got the bed - warning people will towel reserve the sun loungers so if you want one I suggest waking up and the crack of dawn - could really do with aircon as temp in summer was uncomfortable at night - watch out for the hair braiding ladies( turned around for couple of secs and she was already braiding my daughters hair and demanding money... not cheep either) But overall for our first family holiday we found it very enjoyable and reasonably priced. Would return and recommend More
1st visit to Menorca
Visited here on 8th October this year for 11 nights. Although we don't have young children they are well catered for here with the kids club. Personally I wouldn't go at that time of year again as a lot of places had shut for the season, including the aqua Park, although I definitely would go again earlier in the year. The place is lovely. Our apartment block was over the road from the main hotel so seperated from a lot of the noise from the kids club, with its own pool. The room was lovely and clean, which was cleaned every day. Staff were great, although the evening entertainment wasn't up to much towards the end of the season apart from the abba tribute band. The bus into town stops just over from the apartments and the fare is cheap so we visited there several times. Lots of lovely coves hidden away, well worth a visit. And the Black Horse English chippy just down the road, well, you just have to go there. The English breakfast is great and they make their own pies and they're proper chips not frozen!More

room was lovely,,this was not a seaside stay so wasn't expecting great views etc but sitting on the balcony watching the sun come up and feeling the warmth was fabulous. the staff and flight crew of Thomson were amasing.For an end of season stay we had a great time so worth the money.....plenty to see and do ,short walks to beautiful coves,places to eat,entertainment in the complex....in short really enjoyed the whole holiday,there is something for every one(although the talyot is mainly geared up for families with children),and on a side note we went at the end of season ,last week in October and a lot of bars,restraunts and parks were closing up.....would happily go again.More
