Hi Marina Apartments
Cala'n'Bosch is a Fantastic Resort, Hi Marina Apartments were great, lovely and clean and the staff were lovely too. TC Reps were very helpful, young Chris on the Boat trip also had good knwledge of area around us, which was very helpful. Loved Menorca and hopefully will go back again. I went with my elderly mother, and we both had a lovely relaxing week!

We visited Marina Apts in August 2010 and found the accomodation OK, we had a two bed apt with bunk beds.... my kids would'nt sleep in the top so I spent the week top and tailing with my 12yr daughter and would have loved the bed to myself. the rest of the group had the beds and the sofa bed. there was no kettle (small issue I know) but microwaved the water for coffee every morning - overall it was fine, apts were clean but basic. the pools were great for the kids but despite the lovely weather, freezing! the apts were close to the beach which was fab and the marina, all the restaurants were there, lots of choice and fairly priced in some. In short we had a great time and we would go back

Great location, saved the holiday
The accommodation is a little disappointing, although it's location is superb, just minutes away from the harbour, which is nice a lively on a evening and not at all rowdy. I travelled with my 7 year old son and felt comfortable and safe at all times.
I booked accommodation with a separate bedroom, which was a good idea as it meant we were not trying to manage in one room for everything. The accommodation is very basic, a microwave is provided, the one in our room was perched precariously on the room divider - not ideal. The accommodation is advertised as self catering, you are provided with a kettle which has to go on the hob, you can imagine how long that will take, you can hire an electric kettle, but don't expect too much as they are of the cheap and nasty variety that take just as long to boil as the one on the hob would. You can hire a toaster. I was a bit disappointed by this as every other self catering accommodation I have stayed at have always had a microwave, electric kettle, toaster and a hob as the standard minimum.
I would recommend hiring the aircon, make sure you get a room with this, not all rooms have it, but you can hire a fan if yours doesn't!
However, the pool is perfect, my son learnt to swin in 3 days as he was able to stand up in the shallow end of the big pool which meant he could go in the pool without me standing over him, and gave him a lot of confidence. The snack bar is handy and reasonable and the lady who was there for most of our holiday was lovely and so helpful.
The supermarket on site is well stocked and was not expensive unlike many on site store who tend to charge over the odds for being handy, this shop didn't, but remember to recycle your bags!!!
The local restaurants are good value for money, the food generally is very good, we only had one meal that wasn't so good. The most expensive meal was the fish restaurant, Aquarium, the meal was beautiful, but it was twice as much as anywhere else, but if you like your fish it is the place to go - no pun intended!
All in all we had a lovely time, the local area is lovely; the walk to the lighthouse is worth it and the trip on the 'train' is a nice short trip round the local area. We would definitely go back again, but may think twice about the accommodation, although wouldn't rule it out completely.
