Historical Traveler Reviews Paradise Club & Spa ApartHotel Cala'n Bosch
¡Paco! Esa es la única palabra que podría usar para comenzar esta crítica. ¡Él es el anfitrión del restaurante de aquí, e hizo que las vacaciones de mi hijo pequeño fueran fenomenales! Estaba allí para saludarlo cada mañana y cada noche. Estábamos hospedados en la parte del hotel del complejo con media pensión. ¡Él nos llevó a nuestra mesa, luego los dos se fueron, y regresaron con un plato lleno, y si lo que el pequeño quería no estaba en el menú, Paco usualmente lograba encontrárselo! El resto del personal no estaba muy atrás. Todo el mundo hizo más de lo que se les podía pedir. ¡El personal de la recepción hasta condujo una caza a gran escala cuando encontramos una cucaracha en los inodoros de la piscina! El comedor es memorable. Tiene paredes de vidrio con vista a la piscina. Está iluminado, fresco, limpio, y tiene comida estupenda. El entretenimiento es de buena calidad todas las noches. Hasta las habitaciones de media pensión tenían cocina con microondas, tostador, etc. También había una piscina bajo techo. El complejo es tranquilo pero pintoresco. Tienes que probar los órbitas en el parque de atracciones del puerto. Son una diversión estupenda, y el dueño hasta nos persiguió para darle un regalo a nuestro pequeño en un par de ocasiones. Todos los restaurantes que probamos fueron limpios, sabrosos y de buena calidad. La playa es una de las mejores en Menorca. Baja hasta las rodillas bastante rápido, pero luego es plana, segura, y tiene una arena blanca encantadora, y queda sólo a 5 minutos a pie del hotel. Descubrimos este sitio a un precio muy económico a través de una oferta de último minuto. No pudimos haber deseado más. Acabamos de regresar de Menorca (Cala'n Forcat), y regresamos a Paradise Club, una prioridad. No pude creerlo cuando varios miembros del personal se acordaron de nosotros de hace 10 meses. ¡Paco hasta saludó a nuestro pequeño por su nombre, y nos dio la bienvenida como si hubiéramos sido viejos amigos, aunque no nos estábamos hospedando allí! ¡Fueron las mejores vacaciones que hemos tenido, en el mejor complejo, formado por un personal que hizo todo lo que pudo para hacer que todo fuera de lo mejor! Se lo recomiendo a todo el mundo, excepto a despedidas de soltero.
Don't be fooled this is not a 4 star! more like a 2 star!
Just got back from a 2 week stay in the Paradise Club! This is definately not a 4 star hotel, it is more like a 2 star! The place was totally ant infested! The rooms were filthy and must have been cleaned about twice during our stay! As regards the towel changes this was the same story! A great place to stay if you don't mind 2 star accomodation and spending your holiday with lots of ants in your accomodation!
Ok stay at the Paradise Club
Greal location, very close to shops/restaurants etc
Pool clean, but very busy
Good entertainment for families both day and nights
Self catering equipment poor
Apartment cooking facilities overun by ants
Slight odour in toilet for whole stay.
Paco! That is the only word I could start this review with! He's the Maitre'd in the restaurant here, and made my little boy's holiday! There to greet him every morning and night ( we were on half board in the hotel part of the complex) Escorted us to our table, then off the two of them trotted , returning with a full plate, and if what the little one wanted wasn't on the menu, then Paco usually managed to find it for him! The rest of the staff were not far behind! everybody did more than could be asked for , the reception staff even conducting a full scale hunt when we spotted a cockroach in the poolside toilets!
Dining room is memorable, glass walls with a pool view, light, airy, clean, great food. Good quality entertainment every night, even the hotel rooms with half board had a kitchen with microwave, toaster etc. Indoor pool too! Resort is quiet, but picturesque, you must try the orbiters at the harbour side amusement arcade, they are great fun, and the owner even chased after us to give our little one a present on a couple of occasions. All restaurants we tried were clean, tasty, and good value, Beach is one of the best on Menorca, drops to knee high quite quickly, but then flat , safe, and lovely white sand, and only 5 min walk from the hotel. Picked this up very cheap on a last minute deal, and could not have wished for more, we've just revisited Menorca (Cala'n Forcat) and made a return to Paradise Club a priority, couldn't believe it when several of the staff remembered us from 10 months ago, Paco even greeted our little one by name!, and welcomed us back like old friends even though we weren't staying there! The best holiday we've ever had, in the best complex, staffed by people who did everything they could to make it better! Recommend to everybody except stag parties!
Not quite paradise
We were moved here at short notice after the 4* accomodation we regularly stay at was closed for refurbishment. All I can say is if that needed refurbishment, then the Paradise Club needs a major overhaul. It claims to be a 4* aparthotel but I would say it only warrants 3* (there were signs of improvement as we left -grounds being mown & new bar firniture arriving).
The self catering accomodation is spacious but furniture is very worn, & the upholstery badly stained. We were also driven mad by the constant sound of rickety wooden furniture being dragged across marble floors from the surrounding apartments.
The balcony furniture looked like it'd never been cleaned which was possibly because you didn't really want to sit out in the midst of a jungle. The grass outside was so overgrown it came almost above the balcony rail -although it was mown the day before we left (unfortunately covering our washing in grass cuttings).
Maid service started off as being every other day but then declined to once every 3 days. However, the cobwebs on the light fittings, balcony & in the corners of the rooms remained untouched for the whole 2 weeks
The pool area was very nice although the fight for sunbeds got ridiculous. By 8am every lounger was covered by towels & inflatables although only 30% ever got occupied by people.
Entertainment staff worked very hard & some of the tribute bands put on were quite good but was very surprised that they didn't alter the times of the entertainment aimed specifically at children. The clown, magic show & parrot show which were clearly aimed at under 5's didn't start until 10-11pm. Anyone wanting to watch the football on the big screen had no chance as it was set up immediately next to the stage & the evening entertainment went ahead in direct competition.
Cala N Bosch is a lovely resort, based around a very pretty marina. There are lots of good bars & restaurants all within a few minutes walk & we didn't have a bad meal in any of them.
Me and my girlfriend wanted a quiet resort for 2 weeks to just relax and be comfortable, so we chose Calan Bosch and the Paradise Club self catering. First things first, Menorca is the much quieter of the 3 main Balearic Islands and Calan Bosch is one of the better resort areas (clean, quiet and relatively new compared to the Cala Blanes area). We noticed that we did not have the accessory of the day which is a 'child in a buggy' as the resort was abosolutely full of young famalies, but we in no way felt this was a problem to us. Most of the kids were from toddlers to about 12 so there we no loud and obnoxious teenagers.
The accomodation was classed as four grade self catering, and included a kitchenette room with seperate bedroom and bathroom. All clean and tidy. Kitchen had two rings and a microwave, 4 sets of eating equipment some pots and pans and toaster and kettle. Air con was standard and there was a poratble TV. The rooms were well serviced 3 days a week for cleaning and towels. As already mentioned by a previous reviewer, the patio doors are not fully secured with locks so the safety deposit box is a must, although it cost approx €40 for 2 weeks inc a €6 deposit, returnable, which we thought was a bit steep considering their poor security..............
The reception area was cool and the staff helpful. Internet was available. Each evening had some form of entertaimnet on in the large main bar.
The pool area had two pools, a larger pool downstairs for famalies and larger groups and there was a smaller second pool upstairs for a slightly quieter time of things for couples and older people.....a nice thought. There was also a kids club that appeared to be popular.
All in all, this accomodation and resort choice was ideal for a QUIET holiday and although there were children around, it wasn't a reason to dislike the place as they were of that age where they do as they are told.............Recommended for a good, quiet relaxing time.
Calan Bosch itself is centered around a purpose built marina area surrounded with restaurants and bars. All of the eating and drinking places were good value and family friendly, and they were not pumping out loud music. There was just about enough to do each night if you altered you evening walk and varied the pubs you visited.
We stayed at his hotel as a last minute change by the tour operator. And what a gem it was. We stayed half board and the food was the best Ive ever eaten abroad. The staff were so friendly, the entertainment fabulous for the kids and the apartments were spacious and clean. Just across the road you are by the harbour which is surrounded by shops, bars and restaurants, a really lovely place to go either day or night. Just a short bus ride away is Ciudadela, which was a cheap and easy way to get into this lovely, must see town. The beach was a 10 minutes scenic walk away. I would thoroughly recomment this hotel to anyone wanting a break away from the hustle and bustle of busy resorts.
Just back from a week at the Paradise Club. The apartments were very spacious, clean and well maintained.
Complex very nice although pool area was very, very busy. Perfectly situated for the marina and beach at Cala N Bosch. The beach was also very busy, especially with pre school age children.
Food OK - Good choice at both breakfast and dinner.
We had a few problems with the door entry card for our apartment and were back and forward most days trying to get it sorted - Very annoying!
Point to Note: The patio doors at the apartment still opened once "locked" - would recommend paying for the safe on arrival and storing all valuables inside while out and about.
All in all a good 4 star apartment in a lovely resort. I would recommend hiring a car on arrival as driving there is no problem with one main road right up the middle of the island.
Visit Ciutadella - Shops are fantastic.
Go to the beach at Cala Mitjana (has to be seen!)
Take the Yellow Boat Tour round the Port of Mahon
Menorca is a beautiful island and I can't wait to return.
Why did it have to end
hwta can i say. ive been to some places in my life for example malia and benidorm with the boys costa del sol and majorca with family and tenerife with my girlfreind to name but few, but nothing could compare to this place.when we got there we were taken to our hotle and first impressions were this looks good.the recepetionist was lovely speaking fluent english and will help with anything.our room was big and bright but the only disappointment of the whole trip was the initial smell of the toilet but that soon went after 10 minutes of the balcony doors been open.our balcony looked out over the mini golf and was just fine. the pool was cold to start but after been in there for 30 seconds was lovely.we went horse riding my first may i say and i would defeintley go back. 55 euros each for 3 and a half hours over the cliffs of cala bosch and through the streets of cala blanca. we also got a boat trip which was 15 euros each were we went to a beautiful beach in sauder aswell as seeing the pearl of the mediterraenean la galadina among others. one tip though theres two boats don panch which we went on which was very slow and one of the guys looked like a fatter version than even the fat version of diego maradona. so id suggest u go on the larger blue boat very fast and huge slides to go into the sea with. the beach in cala n bosch was beautiful but sunbeds arent to kind to your bank balance ( 17 euros for 2 ). theres a lso alot of jelly fish in the water. back to the hotel and il now introuce you to macaila, mosa, wilm and natalie the four reps. although this is a hotel primarily for children the reps were very adult orientated too. water polo, football, volleyball, reifle shooting everything u need. at night 9 o clock to 9.30 is for the kids were i unfortunately got roped into dressing up as coco the clown. at 9.30 bingo starts a line winning you a bottle of champagne the house anything up to 100 euro which we nicely won. then the entertainment starts with proffessional shows 1 day and the reps own show another day. they made our holidays. paces to eat dont go to no chineses a spacial menu consisted of 1 spare rib warmed up noodles and we didnt want the dessert. go to fiesta/tex mex that was real nice quite pricey though and all the resteraunts in the marina.not much goin on a nite so entertainment in hotel is the best. great holiday will be goin again next year, considering we paid £214 each this place was a pure bargain of the highest calibre by none.
Missing the complex
My first impressions of this complex was extreamly good. the only dissapointments which i encountered was the extream coldness of the pool, alongside the minimarket being extreamly dear in price. the maids worked hard even though you could not communicate with them due to them not being able to speak english, and the view from are balcony was of a building site! forgeting to mention that we arrived at this complex late at night and didnt notice this huge bulding site! The only good thing that we encountered was that the aqua park was just rond the corner approx 5 mins walk. be aware of the cold water and continuous building sites also there as well! costa teguise is a very quite place and will not be suitible for groups of young people. people are very freindly here and i would some how like to get in touch with the staff that worked behind the bar in are appartment, and also bars such as the jelly fish and king arthur. Taxis are very cheap here alongside buses, but um just to warn you where you see a seat belt you wear it the speed limit over there is ridiculous!
