Lovely quiet hotel (for the time of year) situated very close to the Santandria & La Caleta coves . The dining room looks on to the Santandria cove. we stayed at this Hotel from 20th oct 17 till 27th oct 17.. What a brilliant time we had, the hotel is very clean and tidy.. The food was always hot and a lot too choose from, Wifi is excellent anf free in any part of the hotel, even get fridge and TV in rooms which was free to use.. also the computers in reception were free to use.. All the staff and cleaners were very help full and friendly.. The entertainment was good as well. We went on a shop and sail trip was very nice too had a lovely boat trip, then onto the shopping which was a large outdoor market with plenty of surrounding shops.. After the shopping trip we went onto the MAHON GIN DISTILLERY IN cala menorca, which was really nice as you get free drinks you could walk out of there a little on the wobbly side, as samples are not limited.. Then went onto punta prima beach stopped for a light lunch such a great trip to go own.. All we can say is we shall deffo be coming back..
Just returned from a 7 day half term break. Lovely clean hotel & friendly staff. The room was clean & comfortable but the outdated bathroom was in need of a refurb. Tv was a bit disappointing, couldn’t find any English speaking channels. The pool is in need of repair, off putting soft dark patches on the bottom. The hotel is close to a lovely little cove, but sadly all the bars, cafe’s were closed for the winter & the only place open was a shop across the road from the hotel. Sa caleta where the hotel is situated is a small quiet place & you are dependant on the hotel for evening entertainment, which we enjoyed, unless you take a bus or taxi to Ciutadella. For some reason although it was the last week of the season the bus service had been cut drastically. On many occasions we were forced to take a taxi ( quiet expensive) as the occasional bus would sail past completely full. The food was lovely and catered for most nationalities. Although there was a kids club, if I has small children I don’t think I’d choose this hotel due to its remote location. I spoke to one Family who had paid 70euro for 2 taxis to Cala en bosh ( probably not spelt correctly) because the bus was full & there was a 2 hour wait for the next one. Menorca itself is a beautiful island steeped in history. Many beautiful beaches & places to visit. Although being the last week of the season & it being very quiet, & most places already closed. I wonder if I’d have enjoyed it less if it was much busier. On the whole despite the negatives we had a lovely holiday & hope to return to menorca in the future
We stayed as a family at The Prinsotel, La Caleta during the October school half term. The hotel was very clean, all staff were friendly and accommodating and it was easy to strike up a rapport with the team. We were very impressed with the facilities on the site itself - which offered a choice of two large pools with bars and restaurants in very close proximity. There was a gym on site that I used on a couple of occasions and there was also a towel swapping system, which was fine. There was an on-site entertainment team and they were very friendly and always around to see. Even on the last day when the hotel was very very quiet the team came around and asked if we wanted to join in some activities. Evening entertainment was good too - we particularly enjoyed the African dancing troupe and the acrobatic show. During the week we realised that peak season had clearly passed, so the hotel was pretty quiet. This was not a problem as it meant that the poolside areas and restaurant never felt too busy or overcrowded, although the staff still seem to have worked very hard to provide a great service in the restaurant and on site generally. The only downside to staying at this time of year was that because the hotel was so quiet, some of the facilities (two of the poolside bars/snack hut) had closed before we left. This is understandable as the whole island seemed deserted (!) but it meant that we lost these facilities for the last two days of our seven day holiday. We suspected that Prinsotel probably gets much busier during the summer months, but we thought that we might not have enjoyed it as much if it was twice as busy! We stayed in a Select apartment, which was fine for the week for the four of us (2 adults + 2 kids, both girls 8yand 12y). The girls shared the bedroom while we stayed on the beds in the lounge area. The apartment was quite small with a basic kitchen, but it was fine for what we needed it for (sleeping!). Both rooms had a wall mounted digital TV however none of the channels (except Bloomberg) were English-speaking. We felt lucky that we had no rainy days that would've meant staying in our apartment as we / the kids couldn't have watched TV. The beds were very comfortable and we slept well apart from the noise from crying babies or other guests coming and going. This generally stopped by about 11pm though. The two local beaches were nice, but completely deserted with no open restaurants or bars. Again, this probably reflects the time of year, but it was a shame we had nowhere to go within walking distance of the hotel complex unless we got a bus/taxi somewhere. We got lucky with the weather as it was at least 20c every day, so generally it felt warm, although there was quite a breeze on a couple of days that ruined it a bit...! We had a fab penultimate day of weather though, with sun all day and a temp of approx 25c. Beautiful clear water and a very quiet and relaxing end to the holiday on Santandria beach.
Lovely quiet hotel (for the time of year) situated very close to the Santandria & La Caleta coves . The dining room looks on to the Santandria cove. Go out past the dining room turn left and it's the Santandria cove, continue walking to the little sandy beach, cross over and walking the path opposite the hotel brings you to Cala Blanca where the bus can bring you back. Turn right out of the hotel and you will find the peaceful cove of La Caleta. We had a first floor pool view room in block 3 - the hotel is a series of 3 and one 4 story blocks of accommodation. No high rise accommodation here !!! Blocks 1,2 & 3 seem to be the half board accommodation and 4, 5 & 6 the self catering . Near 4,5 &6 is the children's area. Block 2 gets the afternoon sun. The dining room is large - we preferred to eat on the terrace. Now this is where it's a system of booking. The first night we went for a table on the terrace and it was fully booked - you have to book the day before to get a table. From then on we booked the 8.30 breakfast and 6.30 dinner - each day booking for the next. Booking at breakfast time for the next day. Worked well. Breakfast was excellent with fresh smoothies, omelettes made to order and fresh fruit. Dinner was not so good -very large quantities of potato salad, pasta salad , "Russian" salad. Frozen veg - bread crumbed shaped items. The best was the griddled fish cooked fresh and the fresh pasta. Entertainment wasn't bad - we had a series of contortionists /gymnasts and a guitarist. An African group who did an amazing balancing act on chairs, another night a magician and then another night a singer. Everything seemed to quieten down about 11pm. We slept well in a very comfortable bed . The room was a good size but and it's a big BUT - the bathroom was dated and in desperate need of refurbishment, Prinsotel if you read these reviews , then when the hotel is closed for the season ,these bathrooms need a complete refurbishment. The shower though good, with plenty of hot water is dated . Remove the bath & bidet and have a "walk in" shower. Retile and refresh your rooms. Our room was looked after by ever smiling Norma . One of the main advantages for us was the close proximity to Cuitadella a short bus ride a way - or walk if you are energetic !! A fabulous town with lots of culture, museums, restaurants and bars. Lovely shops and places of interest - a harbour with more restaurants - a great place to just sit . Quiet squares to sit and have a coffee. At night it's a lovely place to walk and enjoy everything going on. Excellent. Mahon - no need to book an expensive trip with your tour rep. We took the local bus to Mahon 10 euros return and walked down to the port and had an hour harbour tour for 11 euros each. We booked a car to see Menorca and a very pretty island it is. Very good hotel with excellent staff - Norma and Rosario on reception stand out for being so helpful. Be prepared to pay a hefty amount for the safe and the tourist tax 23 euros for a 1 week stay. We were on "half board plus" that gave us drinks with our evening meal - a red/white Rioja ,water and local beer. Excellent value. I hope this review ,though long helps you with your decision to sat at this hotel.
Excellent accommodation and food,it’s only fault is the pool needs the bottom repainting as there are mould marks that a off putting. Food was very good with a large choice, and themed nights.. Alfredo the head waiter was excellent
For our first family holiday with our 6month old daughter, we wanted to go somewhere that would still be warm, not too far on a plane and with a bit of luxury. After lots of research I finally settled on the Prinsotel la Caleta and I am so pleased I did! We arrived at the hotel just before midday and although check in isn't until 2pm(?) we were actually able to get in to our room straight away. Definitely a bonus after being up since 1.30am for our journey to Gatwick! I chose to book the Deluxe Apartment and we were not disappointed. We only used the kitchen for sterilising, refrigeration and washing up so that was perfect for our needs. The bathroom was modern and clean (although bathing a 6month old who isn't 100% sitting independently was tricky - we sat her in the sink, I held her in the shower and even sat with her in the shower!) the living area was lovely and spacious although we didn't really use it much! The bedroom was fantastic - the bed is massive! Coming home, our kingsize bed feels tiny! The terrace was such a luxury. We were able to lounge and relax on the Bali bed while the little one was napping. Unfortunately, we didn't make use of the private pool because it was just too cold. The rooms either side of us had the pools on the right side of the terrace so they had the sun all day. Ours was on the left and the sun barely kissed it. But to be honest, it probably wouldn't have made much difference in the October sun! But in the height of the summer, I bet it would have. The communal swimming pools and surrounding areas looked great but we didn't make use of them as on the occasions we tried to get baby in, it was too cold for her! Again, in the height of the summer, this probably would have been fine. The grounds look so pretty and are really well kept. The food was lovely, always lots of choice. However, I wouldn't say my husband was fussy, just choosy with what he eats and unfortunately, he struggled some evenings. One evening, I went to the freshly cooked station to get some chicken and the chef cut off some lovely chunks of breast which I was looking forward to eating. Instead, he gave me the carcass!! Always had lovely freshly cooked omelettes for breakfast (although sometimes undercooked but not a problem, I left that bit and went back for another!) Prebook a table on the terrace if it's a nice evening - the view for the sunset is incredible. The sunsets are really beautiful. We ate lunch at the pool restaurant a few times - great food and the staff are fab. They were always making a fuss of our little one - although she didn't crack a smile once for them, too busy staring at everything else going on! Didn't rate the tapas bar - as we'd booked the deluxe room, we had free tapas one night. Perhaps we picked the wrong night but it wasn't great. It was all cold for a start. I much prefer hot food! Especially for a main meal. Not a problem though, we just went to the buffet instead. All of the staff are really lovely here. All made a huge effort to chat and were so friendly. Particularly Neval, the lady on reception who lived in England for a while (sorry, I have forgotten her name), the bell boy and the waiting staff around the pool restaurant. Hotel is in a great location. Few mins walk to both coves either side of the hotel. There is a bus service (€1.50 per person each way) to Cuitadella which is just a short ride. We actually walked it 3 times as found it was a good time to make sure baby slept! Lovely town to walk around just browsing. All in all, I would return to Menorca and I'd return to Prinsotel la Caleta! I might even look at the Prinsotel's in Majorca!
My wife, my one year old son and I spent 9 nights (should have been 7 but the monarch airline collapse gave us a few more days than planned) at Prinsotel La Caleta from late September to early October 2017. We chose self catering due to our sons young age and also that we preferred the option of eating out, although we did have a buffet meal one evening which was perfectly fine. We had a one bedroom apartment, situated by the second pool at the back which was a nice, quiet area, handy for getting our son to sleep at a reasonable hour. The room was a good size, and we were satisfied with the cooking options available to us. The rest of the hotel was very nice, kept very clean and the staff were very friendly. We are very grateful for the help we received when we had to stay longer than we planned due to our flight home being rescheduled. Cala Santandria is a pretty place to visit, near Ciutadella and a few beaches. Hopefully we’ll return at some point.
Fabulous hotel great rooms staff and food . The waiter are 5hebas Muhammad was so funny and gave excellent service! Would go back tomorrow! 5 star treatment. Great food and grae5 prices at the bar . Love Ed the pool
We stayed in a Delux apartment it was very clean and the private garden area was lovely There is not much in the resort but a very good bus service near by. Are room was cleaned daily and the mini bar filled complimentry daily with water beer and pop. The nearest beach was lovely but as its down steps would be difficult for those with mobility difficulties
Hotel is lovely,set in a quite residential area. There are 2 little coves in walking reach one larger than the other. Food at hotel in good something for everyone, there is always rotisserie chicken and some big joint of meat each night. Lovely chocolate mousse. Breakfast fresh omelette cooked for you, fresh smoothies made for you. There is 2 pools gym which I never used. Hotel had varied entertainment each night saw some good acts.
