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.

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.

A couple of excellent holidays at Talayot! Shame about the resort.
We've stayed at the Talayot apartments twice and have had fantastic holidays both times. There's four of us (2+2) and I would highly recommend the place. The Thomson staff and entertainment teams have been brilliant although I accept that you never know how good they'll be year-on-year as they constantly change. However what is guaranteed is the exceptional welcome and service provided by the Talayot staff. They're not just professional, they're genuinely warm and friendly and want to give you the best possible holiday experience. The girls on reception are outstanding and Pepe the restaurant manager is nothing short of a Legend! The rooms are pretty spacious and kept very clean and tidy for you. The amenities in the rooms are adequate for its star rating. You get a TV with limited satellite, fridge, hob, kettle, toaster and a microwave so you're sorted really. The restaurant is excellent quality with a range of local and British dishes at reasonable prices - even the pickiest of eaters will be OK. The day-time entertainment round the pools and sports is excellent with all ages catered for however the evening entertainment really isn't suitable for kids over the age of 9. Our eldest daughter was 10 last time and is was a bit lame for her. The atmosphere about the place is relaxed and friendly and we always felt safe there. So all-in-all I'd say the Talayot is pretty much perfect for families. There is a draw-back though and that's the resort. It has been on a steady decline for several years now and when we last went there were more and more places closed down. There's no beach and no marina, just a street which isn't much to look at at all. I've been going to holiday resorts for 25 years and Calan Forcat is about as poor as any I've visited. I know this is controversial and subjective but if you're the type of parents who want to sit in a karaoke or Irish bar getting hammered while your delinquent kids run around going mental and breaking the odd arm or leg (yes, seriously), then this resort is for you. It's definitely not for me. It's amazing though that these people don't seen to be at Talayot, it's a much more serene place to be than the resort. We went just out of school holidays at the end of July and it was value for what we paid. I really don't think though that it's value for the extortionate school holiday prices but then again, where will be? You have Thomson to blame for that, not Talayot the Bear. Would I go back? No, but that's because of the resort. My kids still talk about their holidays every week and they'd go back in a flash. 10 out of 10 for the Talayot and 4 out of 10 for the resort.More

Good, standard Spanish Accomodation. T-Block good for quiet.
Stayed here as a last minute deal and wasn't sure what to expect. Very pleasant experience all in all. Lovely weather, good standard apartments and nice well-kept grounds (and small pool near apartment). Apartment was pretty standard, fairly basic but beds and sofa bed comfortable and facilities to make simple meals (microwave and hob but no oven or electric kettle). What made the holiday for me is the outside space/terrace as we were on the ground floor and it opened up to a little garden which wasn't for our sole use as people could cut through but this was rare. It was lovely out there :o). We were put in T-Block which is over the road from the main body of the complex but did have its own pool area. Here it was nice and quiet as you can hear the entertainment team and some music but those apartments overlooking the main pool would have been a bit noisy for me (music pretty loud all day). Mind you, the bin men were v.v.noisy at 4.30 every morning with the glass bins! Maybe other apt blocks don't get this?? There is a bar with very pleasant waiters/bar staff and the bus stop to Cuitadella is literally outside the reception area. Reception were really nice and Internet charges were nominal (I think it was something like 2 euros a day or 7 for the week). They did have an indoor swimming pool and the charge for this was 5 euros a day per person, but I never saw anyone in it. Talayot has a supermarket just across the road (this belongs to Talayot); however I did notice that some cheeses were a few weeks out of date which I collected and gave to assistant, but then they were back in the fridge when we went back! Also manager had awful body odour and was pretty touchy feely with a couple of the checkout girls so that was a bit weird. Cala'n Forcat is quite tired and the season was just ending so it was difficult to see what had closed for the winter compared to closed down for good. Nice though. It was a nice, sunshine early Winter break. Good weather, didn't need air conditioning but this is good as they don't have any! Would recommend, especially for the short flight, family friendly apartments and either early or later in the season due to lack of air con.More
