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.
Fantastic holiday resort, super apartments and complex!!!
We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment at the talayot apartments, we could not have been happier with apartments facilities and space. We travelled with our 14 month old daughter who was not quite walking, we was able to hire a walker out for 20 euros for our entire 11 night stay. It was the best 20 euros I spent she had so much room to move around and loved every minute, especiallly has we was bottom floor so was able to let her move around outside on the massive patio area. This aloud her to be so nosiey watch all other guests.
The apartment had everthing from kettle to toaster to microwave a very good sized fridge and frezzer. All tools needed to prepare a meal. Bathroom was fantastic had bath with shower over ( power shower I shall had best shower av been in). The rooms were very clean when we arrived and was cleaned everyday throughout our stayed has well has clean towels and bedding.
The area was amazing, the best pub for us was the black horse just outside the complex turn right and its about 100 yards down the road. Fantastic couple jean and ken who own it. Really good priced drink. What made it amazing was the 3 euro full english breakfast yes people I said 3 euros and it is gawjus. They also so proper english fish and chips which are out of the world done in a proper english style chip shop.
The strip of bars and restaurants were great too everywhere catered for kids and 95% of the bars had bouncing castles for the kiddies. The beach cove was beautiful although we did not spend the day there we will be when we go back.
The only cristisum I have is I feel the entertainment team could make abit more of an effort to communicate with familys that have children under 3 and not just focus and take there time to entertain those familys. Also one of the shows were disney which I may had was fantastic, my daughter loves mickey and minnie but the show did not start while 9.45 and by then she was fast asleep in her pram, so me and her dad ended up singing along we did enjoy it though but wish my little girl had seen it has she wud av looked it. Maybe the shows starting earlier could be something they could do.
Overall I could talk about this complex and resort for hours. Its amazing and already pricing up to go back next year.
Stayed 6th september to 17 september 2014 ( had a massive heat wave has well which was nice)More

Excellent 1st time family holiday
This was our 1st time in menorca and at the Talayot Apartments. Went for a week from 10-17 sept. On arrival reception checked us in and gave us a weekly entertainment schedule, as well as charges for item hire. We had a 2 bedroom apartment and they were amazing, so spacious and clean. The accommodation has 6 pools. Our apartment was situated at the minor splash pool. Rooms are cleaned on a daily basis with fresh towels everyday. There is no a/c but all rooms have ceiling fans. The restaurant on the premises serves good food at reasonable prices. There is entertainment every night and kids have a ball. The strip which has many restaurants, bars and shops is about 5 min walk. Each eating area has a kids play area. There are 3 different beaches all within walking distance although we found cala en blanes pirate cove beach to be the best facilitated and child friendly. Overall an all round great family holiday and would recommend to anyone. We had an 18 month old child with us and he enjoyed every minute. More

Fantastic Holiday from Start to Finish!
My wife & I stayed at the Talayot Apartments from the 1st to the 15th of September with our 2 children aged 3 & 11 months and we all had a wonderful time. Both the hotel and Thomson entertainment programme are specifically geared towards families which meant that the kids were always happy and we could actually relax!
We were really impressed with the Talayot apartment complex. The rooms and grounds were kept clean and tidy by the cleaning staff who work tirelessly each day. The apartments were also large and well maintained. I particularly like the way the apartments are scattered around the complex in blocks only 2 stories tall, much better than the massive towers you see around. It felt like a little village where the guests had much more space to themselves. We were located in Block B which seemed the perfect place to be. Close enough to the pools and restaurant to feel part of everything but far enough away to relax or get some sleep.
The facilities at the Talayot were absolutely fantastic. The splash pool was definitely the highlight but having the big pool, baby pool, big play area and sandy play area as well meant that the kids never got board. There was just so much for them to do! The restaurant and snack bar were also very good value and the staff very friendly and hardworking.
We loved Romy and Jemma (the entertainment team) who were brilliant. They had such enthusiasm for entertaining the kids (and parents) from dusk till dawn and were the heartbeat of the hotel. The daily quiz was great (the most important part of the day for me!) and the kids loved the dancing round the pool and the Lets Get Loud disco at night.
Most of the acts that were put on after the kids disco were pretty good and I would definitely recommend watching the African Footprint show. Those guys were amazing (Yeah Man!).
The Thomson Reps were friendly & efficient and despite rarely needing their help, they were always present around the complex and it was nice to know they were there if required.
The resort was a little rundown but pleasant and geared towards kids. Cuore was our pick of the restaurants as the food was very nice and it had separate play areas for both very little ones and for bigger kids.
The beach we went to was 5-10 minutes walk away and was very nice. It also had a couple of restaurants too, with Pirates Cove having a kids' play area and a very good value 10€ menu.
The only criticisms of the hotel were that the snack bar could do with more healthy options for the kids and air conditioning in the apartments would have been nice. The ceiling fans did a pretty good job though most of the time. The evening entertainment could also have started earlier as many of the kids were very young, though Jemma had managed to get it moved forward to 7.30pm by the time we left.
The criticisms are only minor though and it was definitely a fantastic 5* holiday overall!

Great for families and couples on a budget.
My partner and I were on a limited budget and the Talayot Apartments far exceeded our expectations. Thomson advertise these apartments as two star but from substantial experience of other resorts this is more like a three star. The customer service was excellent from all staff from the daily cleaners to reception to the holiday reps. There are lots of shops, restuarants and kids entertainment in the local vacinity (5 minute walk). The apartments are located in a residential area which appears to be holiday homes so the area is safe and peaceful. The apartments complex has an abundance of pools and lots of facilities. If you want a magical beach experience also, walk to Calan Brut beach, 15 minute walk from the comlex. Turqouise water and you can snorkel with the fish. The restuarant on site is great value for money and good quality food. Also the entertainment at the complex is free and is varied daily with good quality acts for all ages. We booked through Thomson and we were well looked after. Lots of value for money excursions on a beautiful island. We want to thank Ingrid on reception for her friendly advice on places of interest and how to get there. The manager should be proud of the great team at the complex. Also we want to thank Emma and Martin, the Thomson reps for their fantastic support and friendliness during our stay. They are an asset to Thomson and highly professional. This is not a budget complex but great value for money. We had an amazing holiday at the Talayot Apartments and this was mainly thanks to everyone that worked there. We would recommend the Talayot Apartments to anybody, with children or no children...especially if this is their first of many visits to Menorca. Adam & Vanessa. T16More
We have been very lucky in the past with our holidays but we all agree that this has been our best holiday yet. There isn't one negative thing I can say. The whole complex is very clean and well looked after. Our apartment was cleaned and towels were changed every day. From the moment we stepped off the coach we were greeted with smiles and friendly chat. The Thomson reps were amazing. We have a 5 yr old daughter and there was always something going on and if she didn't want to join in she could choose one of the 6 pools to splash around in. The location is brilliant with lots of places to eat with something for children in every one. The water part is very close too and is perfect for a day out. There is entertainment every night. We are already planning our holiday for 2015 and this will be the first time we have ever returned to a holiday destination. Don't hesitate in booking this holiday but please save a room for us!!!!More
