Got back from calan bosc on the 20th July 2007, stayed at the Valentin Star
not impressed with this hotel, the food was very very poor, thought it had a great pool and was clean though. The resort is absolutely beautiful and the choice of excellent food in the restaurants is good and not overly priced. Weather was very hot...up to 42c some days and rarely dropped under 32fc until midnight when it was a cool 25c. Buses are every 15 minutes to Cuitadella at a cost of 1 euro 65 each way which is pretty cheap for a 6 mile journey. The beach next to the Calan bosc hotel is beautiful and very safe for kids, although there is a much larger beach (but not as nice) at Son Xoringuer. Liveliest bar is the Shamrock , very friendly staff and good artist called Joey, another nice pub for those who want to relax is the Don Carlos, the owners Juan and Rosa are a vey pleasant couple and for those of you who like John Smiths bitter, you wont get much better in England than this place. Try a steak meal at the Torro Negro, top quality and reasonably priced. Theres an aqua park not far from the resort...5 mins walk from the Valentin Star which you can spend all day up until 6pm for 17 euros for adults and 11 euros for children and 4 euros per person for a sun bed. For those who like to explore there's a couple of glass bottomed boats which take you to secluded beaches and actually stays at one for 90 mins to enable you to do a spot of sunbathing, theres water chutes on these boats so the kids can slide down in to clear blue safe water. I would recommend this resort to those who dont like things too lively and with younger children 11 or under, not a resort for teenagers or couples who like to club the night away, although the shamrock has a disco until 4am, most live artists finish around midnight all over the resort but some pubs open until 3am or 4am. I will definetly be going back to this resort but alas a different hotel, maybe the Calan bosc hotel or the Paradise Club

Cala'n Bosch lies on the extreme south of Menorca, approx 10 km south of the former capital of the island Ciutadella, It took us about an hour and a half to transfer to our hotel. Public transport both around the resort and beyond is surprisingly good, for local journeys during the day. Well into the early evening, a leisurely mini train runs around the resort and into the nearby Son Xoriguer, and for journeys further a field a bus service runs north towards Ciutadella, passing through the resort of Cala Blanca, approx every 45 mins to 1 hour. In Ciutadella further journeys can then be made towards Mahon. The timetables for these routes are published on the bus stops throughout the town, or in our case in our hotel?s guide to the resort.We ventured into Ciutadella in the evening on the weekend, (caught the bus) what a difference to see the locals sitting in their doorways watching the world go by. We also went to the market and kitted out the whole family with Menorcan sandals (yes even dad got some) well the soles are made of car tyres apparently I?ve since learnt!!One focal point of the resort is its large man made marina, which is usually full of small to mid size yachts and other leisure craft. During the evening this area of town always comes alive when numerous traders set up their stalls, selling locally made craft goods along with others offering henna tattoos, hair braiding, and a small number of artists who will draw you portrait. (warning if you have kids like me they will want there hair done)fairly good price, don?t be afraid to haggle.If you fancy a walk Cala?n Bosch also has a lighthouseIt's around the marina that you'll also find most of the resorts bars and restaurants offering anything from cheap and cheerful fast food to quality fish restaurants. There are plenty of shops for the women and bars for the guys to wait for them! Two fair sized sandy beaches. Both have good facilities, and offer a selection of water sports equipment for hire, pedalos etc.Evening entertainment is fairly low key and mainly hotel based, which is our case we were, it was geared up for kids and everything a stones throw away. Minorca?s water park is in Cala?n Bosch, which is walkable in 10 mins, sunbeds a bit pricey. They also do a half day session handy if your staying in the resort.
