Historical Traveler Reviews Blanc Palace Aparthotel Ciudadela
stayed there 1st october rooms are ok, but we had damp in our room. its better to have an apartment facing the pool, we had a room around the front of the hotel and it was dark and cold. but any1 that books there get a room facing the pool. good entertainment for kids. very nice helpfukk staff, very clean rooms. not many bars or resturants in sa caleta so its best to get a bus to other resorts, the bus stop is outside the blanc palace. lovely beach just around the corner and its really safe for kids, the water is crystal clear.
First Class !!!
Our second year at the Blanc Palace & just booked to return again next year. After many years without children, traveling to the Caribbean and Asia, we thought once we had a family we would never find a family resort that was truly 4*. Well the Blanc Palace is the perfect family resort, clean, modern, all the comforts of home and entertainment that keeps our 3 year old dancing till midnight!! The staff never change, warm friendly and familiar faces each year. Sa Caleta offers a quite unspoilt resort, with the fabulous Sa Nacra bar and Sa Quadra restaurant (both in Santandria - a short walk over the beach). The newly opened Ocean restaurant, near the hotel offers 1st class fish, and a bouncy castle complex to keep the kids happy. Citudella is a short bus ride away, with the "Es Forat" restaurant on the harbor front, the best we found. A night eating at the Hotel, is well worth while.

Enjoyed our stay at Blanc Palace
Stayed there for 2 weeks in June 2005. The accommodation was excellent, it was very clean and the linen was changed when necessary. The swimming pool was a good size and clean . The staff were very helpful. The entertainment could have been better. The hotel was more suitable for people with children, but we still enjoyed our stay there. The bus service was excellent and there were enough good restaurants near enough to walk to. We also walked into Citudella several times, it only took 15 to 20 minutes.
Ideal Family Hotel
We have just returned having spent 7 nights with 2 children under 2 and a half! Everything about the cleanliness is true and the staff are very helpful. The pool is great and very child friendly.
Basically the hotel is a dream if you are after entertainment for the kids and a nice quiet holiday. Local town is also well worth a visit for shops and cafes (only 10 mins on the local bus which are extremely regular)
In fact the only problem I had with the hotel was the fact that they said Sky was available (but only in the bar areas and not in the rooms) so I missed the last few hours of the Fourth Test each day!
Fantastic family resort
We stayed at the Blanc Palace for 2 weeks in May in a party of 4 adults and 3 children aged from 11 months to 6 years. We can honestly say that there was something to do for all! A soft play area for the younger children and safe, clean and friendly creche facilities (5 euros for 1 hour). The standard of cleanliness and service, especially from reception staff was excellent. Accommodation itself was smaller than expected but was clean and tidy and everything worked!!! Our only reservation was that Sa Caleta is small and there are only 2 restaurants/bars within a 5 min walk. However there is a restaurant on site which is good. Other restaurants and bars can be found a further 10 - 15 min walk. We would highly recommend the Sa Nacra bar and Sa Quadra restaurant (both in Santandria)
Excellent family holiday
just returned from holiday went 28th may 2005. no complaints at all. 5 star holiday recommended for family hols. hotel immaculate.service & cleanliness spot on. we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Kids all kept occupied too.
Superb Holiday, Sa Caleta is Idylic
Looking forward to a third fantastic holiday at the Blanc Palace. This is a super family friendly complex. Where the staff are friendly, the whole complex is clean and safe and the food wonderful. The entertainment is suitable for all ages with a fun filled yet relaxed atmosphere.
Have just booked the Blanc Palace for July 2005. We have previously stayed here in June 2002 and 2003. Last year we stayed at a 4* in Majorca but nothing compares to the Blanc Palace. It is brilliant for the kids and adults alike. The pool is fantastic, apartments lovely, food very good and the staff could not be more helpful. If you like a fun, relaxing holiday this is the place to go.
Had a brilliant holiday, hotel spotless, food very good and the entertainment was wicked (especially DJ Ben Apple). Hope to book for next year, would recommend it to anyone.
In July 2003, eight of us travelled to Menorca for the 4th time.
Previously, we stayed in the appartments across the road, Son Blanc appartments. Although we thoroughly enjoyed these appartments, we decided to visit the Blanc Palace for a change and it was the best decision we made. We found the accomodation excellent, the facillities excellent and ALL the staff very helpful and very friendly. It was very clean with a fantastic swimming pool. Although the hotel is aimed at under 10's, the four children on our holiday were 10, 11, 13, and 14 and none of them were bored. The entertainment staff were brilliant and even organized water polo for the children, as well as the adults, after we requested it. We couldn't fault our holiday, the accomadation, the entertainment or the staff. We should know because 7 years ago we suffered the most awful holiday you could possibly imagine. The Blanc place gets 11/10 from the Mills family.

... John later fixed a few mor leaks. Had dinner at a beautiful fish restuarant with some old friends - very pleasant evening. Bought food for our trip back to Majorca and plan to leave Mahon tomorrow morning circa10am. Ian sends huis best wishes to Mar and Denise and looks forward to meeting up on Saturday or the next few days. Happy days.
John writing the blog today.
Well another day in paradise, albeit overcast today (welcome to september). Finished drying out the boat just my bedding and a few teeshirts to go.
We were invited to lunch by Peter and Anthea two very old friends of Ians, we were picked up by Peters skipper Andy in a big rib ...
Active day on the boat today although sailing miles much reduced - John cleaned and dried a pretty wet boat after yesterday's sail. Hard work aside we had time for a pleasant breakfast, lunch and now having lamb/sea bass for supper. Mahon an interesting town - quieter today as now entering the low season - maybe the marina prices will drop. Walked up into the old town before food looking at the sights! but now back on the waterside for food. Tomorrow may be even less active.
We really did leave on time this morning. 7am and we left our mouring almost silently. A perfect first two to three hours on one tack up the southerly coast of the island - the last couple of hours was a bit painful as the sea swellbuilt up and the wind shifted. So plenty of tacking ...
... instructions to me. John did the tricky anchoring bit at the end. Paddled into town for supper Weather forecast tomorrow more of the same so should be fine sailing. Enjoying ourselves.
P.s. ian is a blind bugger, so I have had to edit this, or no one would understand it, ( dont worry he cant read this)
On a serious note it is very fine that we are back sailing together ...
