Historical Traveler Reviews Hi! Cala'n Bosch Hotel
just returned from this "hotel" 7 night break,the food was awfull, breakfast swimming in grease eggs hard sausages very soft even chips for breakfast,the main meals were very very repetative veal for lunch and then veal stew for dinner obviously leftovers, chicken 3 times veal 4 times then sausages for lunch, then deep fried pork for dinner( deep fried sausages) must have been from lunch sliced reconstituted ham for salads with some sort of cheese slice,desserts were the same every lunch and dinner,
Not enough chairs and tables in bar area had to stand to watch the "shows" even simon cowell would have walked out,not enough beds by the pool, beds not to be reserved ,but you had to be there early to get the good spots towels already on the beds, then they would not arrive till gone 11 o;clock I WILL NOT BE STAYING HERE AGAIN
To be fair, some people have mentioned the food, however, considering you have to feed on mass three times per day, I thought the variety was reasonable. You don't have to have chips everyday, there is a salad and meat selection for those brits who eat normally when home. I think FABIO 'cha cha cha' was fantastic as general compare-entertainer and gave the impression he was fresh when we arrived, although he does this all season, he is a very talented man, I will never forget the monkey song. The entertainment starts aroung lunch time by the pool and you can take part in games both adult and kids. This goes on until around 4.30ish, its also a good ice-breaker with other guests. Prizes are then awarded in the evening's entertainment in the form of diplomas and medals. The pool and beach are virtually side by side. The Brits, I say are far worse than the Germans these days when reserving sun-loungers with towels, many were up at the crack of dawn doing the towel rounds. I have always took the stance that if there is nobody at the loungers when I go down, then they come off and left on the floor. I don't like to be kept guessing wether or not they are by the beach, having a dip or gone to the toilet. The hotel is pretty laid back with this so be bold and impose the rule yourself. The rooms although very much late 60's early 70's in decor were average, but hey, it's only a place to get your head down. If it were 5-Star then I would say something. The water for brushing teeth and washing is a wee bit salty, so buy bottled water and take mouthwash. In summary, not that bad, good location, good local ammenities, good organised boat trips, friendly people and staff and great entertainment. If you prefer loud obtrusive, lager loutish behaviour, this is not for you...Go to Benidorm instead. Adios....
Great time had by all
Stayed at hotel for 2 weeks, had a brilliant time,
Hotel was clean, staff were very friendly and food was plentiful and always something for everyone.
Entertainment staff were excellent, Fabio and his team worked hard to keep you amused.
The games during the day were great fun and helped everyone mix.
Excellent time and would definetly go back.
i dont know what some people want!yes hotel is old but that is my only moan.food varied and plenty of it,same for drinks.staff very friendly,fabio very good at his job,kept everyone entertained throughout.we could get down to pool at 0745 and still get 7 sunloungers.iv never been to a more relaxed hotel+resort,everything snails pace.made some good friends+activeties pass the time if you can be bothered,i have the club dance cd and would sort you out with a copy,send me email.would definately return.this is a very quiet holiday
It was a great holiday!
i found the Cala 'n' Bosch hotel great i could not fault it in anyway! the hotel was very clean! entertainment wasnt brilliant but there was a good variety of shows! Food was good as there was always a wide variety and always something u would like! there is always something you can be joining in with too throughout the day (adults and children)
if anyone has the club dance cd would it be possible for you to tell me some of the song names as i didnt get chance to buy 1! thank u!
Great Hotel, would definitely go there again!
Average accomodation, food, room etc
Just returned today would not go again, Hotel very Old, and accommodation less than basic, food OK but gets boring in second week. Chips morning, noon and night and i do mean in the morning for breakfast too..... Sun beds are reserved by 7.00 a.m. even though Hotel says no reserving sun beds, but everybody ignores, this. Very annoying as you have to sit on the grass watching sun beds with towels on and then ignorant people come down at 1.00 in the afternoon to take up the sun beds. Hotel staff do nothing about this practice, very annoying. In end gave up and took peoples towels of myself, causing trouble. Which did not want as was on Holiday !!!. Staff polite and helpful but oldness of hotel etc, lets this down badly. Highly priced with Thompsons but not worth the money in my view.
Had a great time in July 04, the hotel was busy, food was great, never been fully inclusive before but thoroughly enjoyed it. Room was nice and we had a great view over the pool and beach. The staff were friendly especially Fabio (cha cha cha) who kept both the adults and children entertained through the day and in the evenings. Was only there for one week but could of stayed another.
POSIBLY THE WORST HOTEL I HAVE EVER STAYED IN.
We went during school term, expecting only a few children, as we are a couple. the place was over-run with noisy, abusive kids, whose parents could not care less what they were up to, as long as they could take full advantage of the all inclusive alcohol, which by the way was the cheapest available and disgusting!
Tiny bedrooms, and unless you were out at 0630hrs, you would not get a sunlounger, as all the BRITS had claimed them by then, we moan about the Germans, but i would rather spend 2 weeks in a hotel full of Germans, that a day in this working mens club.
we eventually paid to be moved to the Hotel Cala Blanca, what a relief, drinks still the same, but much nicer hotel, food and CLIENTELLE.
Children kept in order, wonderful.
Very clean,and the staff were so lovely and friendly
this hotel is an older hotel, but with style, the food is good and basic, and plenty of it. the staff were all great, The barman Miguel, heads the the bar staff; then you have Jose, Mari-carman, Cali and young toto. This is my second time, and i will be back.
We stayed at the cala'nbosch hotel in June 2003. We had a fantastic time. Our daughter Molly who is four loved the kids club and my Husband Terry and I really enjoyed the activities on offer. We had a fantastic view of the pool and the beach,and our room was kept immaculate thanks to the brilliant maid service. The food was great, if a little repetetive, we stayed for 11 nights and regarding the food a week would have been enough.However we were very sad to have to leave. The resort itself is lovely and very family orientated which was great for us. The staff at the hotel were very friendly, as were all the guests. It felt like a home from home. We loved it so much that we are going back there this October. Can't wait!

Hi - Ian again. A quiet day in Mahon. Started with a trip around the harbour on a typical glass bottom boat. The highlight was a visit to Isle de Rei in the middle of the harbour. Learnt a lot about the history of Menorca and all the visitors / occupiers over the last 300 years - well worth a visit if you are ever on Menorca. The harbour ...
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 ...
Left cuidella at the crack of dawn ok 11am into a very pleasant easterly ish! wind. Lunch bought in the morning so ok for food. Good sail but decided to stop at Galdana for a swim and chill out. At least we can reach Mahon tomorrow if we want to and leave early. At anchor so likely to be up early. Galdana quite busy so lots to watch. I helmed all the way whilst John read his book ...
