... already walked a couple of these generally coastal tracks and it would be great to do the rest at some point. At least with the help of this book we can now plan this properly! Fly back into Leeds-Bradford where the weather is cold and wet. Welcome back to the ...
... the path to the coast. It has clouded over so doesn't look as dramatic but milky sun shimmering on the sea makes for a very different vista. There's plenty of time before the bus at 20.00 so we stop for a drink at a hotel bar overlooking the beaches before wandering along the new promenade back to the bus stop. Back in Mahon we return to the cafe we found on the first day for drinks and tapas. A nightcap in the Mirador before returning to the ...
... the waterside bar, we watch the fish, oblado, mass to eat the remains of the paella of the diners on the next table. There's a local grey cormorant basking on the rocks and unusually ducks swimming on the sea. A bus back to Ciutadella then another to Mahon. It's chilly so we return to the hotel venturing out later to visit the Mirador for wine and ...
Excellent breakfast and blue sky so we decide to go in the boat trip around the harbour. We depart at 10.30. It's slightly breezy on the water but we still sit up top to get best views. It's worth it! Mahon is a fantastic huge natural harbour with a few small islands which housed a barracks, hospital and isolation island. There's a regatta starting on Thursday with Waly and J type yachts. Both are really big ...
... was ready. Quick change into summer clothes and out into the warm sunshine. The views across the harbour are fantastic and we amble around the unspoilt old town before stopping for lunch. An excellent cafe popular with the locals plus a menu for 10euros! We walk a mile toward the mouth of the harbour before taking the lift down to the waterside. There are ...

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,
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!
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.
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!
