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.
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

Phillips Family Holiday May 2014
Myself and my family (Husband and 3 young girls age 4yrs, 7yrs and 10yrs) stayed at the Talyot in May for 11 nights, from the 9th of May and we had a really great time.
The weather was great for early May and we were able to sunbathe (got a great tan) and use the pool everyday which was great for the kids. The location of the room around the pool meant that we could prepare snacks or meals in the room and have them outside on the veranda so the kids missed nothing and we saved a mint by not having to purchase from the resturaunt, although the food was nice and good value.
The transfer from the airport to the apartments went very smoothly with the reps being very helpful and enthusiastic and we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the centre.
The check in was nice and organised with the staff very friendly and helpful, and able to give us all the information that was required to locate our room.
We were placed in room 1 D which was the corner room by the large pool, with the bridge directly opposite and we were very happy with this location. This was ideal to watch the kids in the pool and was at the centre of activities during the day with the reps who were brilliant and with the restraunts all very close to the room.
The room was clean and basic but had everything we needed to cook meals or prepare snacks for the kids. The cleaner came every other day to clean and change sheets and towels and they were always polite and happy.
The bonus for us as a family were the reps and the kids club, I must say Gemma the Lead entertainments rep, was brilliant with kids how she was still on here feet by the end of the night I don't known because she never stopped, also Martin he could not do enough for you if he was asked somethingMore

stayed here for 11 nights, apartment spacious and clean and had all the kitchen utensils you would need.
The strip as it is called is very "blackpoolish" and we found that restaurants were shutting down for the season, so would not want to go later in October.
The only downfall for me was no free wifi.More

Arrived at the Talayot reception & apartments which on first glance looked very impressive. From this point it is all down hill. Fifty one people arriving at the same time to check in and only one member of staff on duty. I had requested a room with a balcony rather than a terrace as they generally offer nicer views and far more privacy. We was allocated room 4a block R and I can only describe it as disappointing . Our only view was a tiled roof and our balcony was access to next door's apartment,we had no view and no privacy. View from the bedroom window was a tree that was so close it was difficult to open the shutters to let sufficient light in. Security was poor with a very weak lock on patio door, window frame hanging of the wall with fixing exposed, glass was misting so we had little visibility when doors were closed. Interior Walls are paper thin we could hear every word our neighbours said so I'm sure they could hear us. Dangerous sharp metal sticking up on patio door frame. This apartment was supposed to sleep six adults, it would be impossible to get six people on the patio at anyone time. Small wooden patio table provided which is rotten and falling to pieces.
Thomson sell this hotel as three stars however if you look on the hotel website they rate it as only two stars. www.talayot.com In my opinion the whole of block R is in need of desperate refurbishment. Furniture must be at least twenty five years old. Fridge had to be replaced on the day we arrived as it was faulty. Tv is padlocked to the wall, why bother I've thrown better ones away.
I have booked my holidays with Thomson's for the last thirty years and never before had cause to complain. I remember the Thomson advertising logo which was a simple message, if Thomson don't do it DONT DO IT.
Hotel seems to attract over weight men in replica football shirts & fat women covered in tattoos.
I would like to add the maid service is faultless, although the accommodation is disappointing it is spotlessly clean. I spoke to a Thomson representatives regarding this matter, we were offered an alternative room but it was no better.More
