relaxing holiday in Cala Galdana
We just love Cala Galdana, Menorca. We have visited twice now and have enjoyed it both times.
We go for the snorkeling in the sea, its great exercise and the water is so clear, we see lots of fish. Very relaxing!
The Hotel Cala Galdana is very nice, modern, clean and the food has improved this year. We stayed for two weeks and we didn't get bored with the selection.
The suite we had was really nice, the extra room with the sofa bed is a nice touch, also has tea/coffee, kettle, fridge etc. and the veranda is large, has four chairs and table. (others are two chairs and small table)
The view is nothing like in the main Hotel, but these suites (separate and next to the Hotel on its right side) are really nice and private. So if your not worried about seeing the sea, would like to spend a little bit extra for more space and comfort, then they are worth it.
The rest of the resort, although not big has all the usual shops,cafes, more Hotels, restaurants and chemist. Good bus service to the rest of the Island and three lovely beaches within walking distance. (you do have to like walking though!) This place is not suitable for the young, looking for nightlife etc. My two youngest came this time and although they enjoyed it, they would prefer a bit more going on.

Great holiday in Menorca
We really enjoyed this holiday, a friend recommended Menorca, the resort was Cala Galdana, and the hotel was that name. It was a lovely resort, handy for the local bus, which we used to take us to Mahon and Ciutadella, The beach was nice and it had a lovely bay. We thought the price of the sun beds and umbrella was a bit expensive. We thought the staff was friendly and helpful, the food was very good, the entertainment in the evenings was excellent.
The only thing we was not happy with was the pickup from our hotel to go home. We was picked up at 7am and it took 2 hrs picking up other people from other hotels, by the time we checked in as there was queue, it was time to board the plane.

Holiday in Menorca
Great Hotel Cala Galdana and very good evening entertainment And good entertainment staff. Meals where great with good choice. The Island is very clean with a good bus service for visits to other parts of island. Plenty of local bars for lunch time snack and drink. Only thing to be aware that if you do not have room with sea view, you will face a cliff face with artificial water fall.

Great Relaxing holiday
Good hotel very relaxing, hotel staff friendly and efficient. 1st time in years that the food buffet style was HOT. I found it better (except the view) than the Sol Gavilanes which we had stayed previously. I would definately go back there.

Brilliant family holiday,.
Stayed last week of June 2012.
Apartment was spacious and clean, maid service every day towels changed if required.
Food was plentiful with a good choice every day - even for a fussy 9 year old.
All staff were very friendly and helpful.
Hotel situated close to beach, a few shops, cafes and bars.
Hotel put on entertainment every night - but not too late for kids.
Only one problem - people leaving towels around the swimming pool on loungers to save them and then disappearing for hours.

Our Holiday in Menorca
We have been to Cala Galdana in Menorca before and returned as it is a beautiful bay and the Hotel Cala Galdana is all that we need. On this occassion we were upgraded to an apartment which was a delightful surprise as we had much more room and the opportunity to use the small kitchen and particualry the fridge which was a boon for keeping drinks warm in the hot weather. Menorca itself is a quieter island than the other Baelarics, both of which we have tried. While the public transport is good we chose to hire a car and were able to get to many of the small bays that otherwise would be inaccessible. All went well on the plane flights to and from the island though we would have appreciated more space in the seats both for width and leg room.
We were very happy with our holiday and may well return in the future.
