... 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 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Menorca Sea Club Ciudadela
We are just back from a week at the Menorca seaclub. I booked this holiday based on other reviews so thought it fair to add my thoughts. We had a really nice week with our 3 yr old boy. The pools are a bit nicer than they look in the photos. Very clean. There is a splash one for kids too with water jets which our little fella loved. I asked for a groundfloor room, away from the stage and thats what I got. The music doesn't go on too late I don't think but we like to go to bed early. The resort is slightly away from the centre of things but not very far. We ended up hiring a car because we wanted to explore the beaches, which we did. We find it hard to stay by the pool for very long so this was ideal. Cala Galdana was my favourite beach. This was fantastic. One restaurant there had a playground AND 2 waterslides.
We booked the Sea Club apartments as a last minute family holiday (we have 2 boys - 13yrs and 8 yrs). Having never been to Menorca before I had checked the place out on this website first!!
This was our first family holiday abroad and it will take some beating. We stayed for a week and did plenty in that time. We booked a very expensive beach hopping excursion when we got there. It was 210 euros for 5 of us but included a full day of boating around the island and stopping off at 2 beaches you can only reach by boat. It also included lunch about halfway through the day. We all thoroughly enjoyed this and and would definately book a similar excursion if we stayed here again.
As a young family of five (kids are 13, 6 and 3) we needed a family orientated hotel with plenty to keep the kids occupied and this was it. 3 swmming pools, games room, kids clubs and lots of sun. Location is OK but it is a 10 minute walk into town.
I stayed at the Sea Club apts last may. There were 9 of us all together 4 adults and 5 children ranging from 2-16 and there was something for everyone to enjoy. It wasn't far from the town centre, a nice walk and the kids would go on their own, it felt a very safe area and the reps were brilliant. The apartments were very big, we had 6 of us in one two bed but it was still very roomy with a well equipped kitchen. Great views over the sea. The pizzeria on-site was really nice, we could have eaten there loads. plenty of room around the swimming pools and in the bar area, but then it was may so not high season anyway. Shop on-site which is handy as altough its not far to the town and the supermarkets, its nice to just pop down stairs sometimes.
Sea club Menorca certainly did the trick in helping us have a first class and relaxing holiday. Impressively clean in the apartments and around the complex. Three pools to chose from. No shortage of sunbeds. Despite the complex being full it felt spacious and open. A view of a tiny beach from our apartment window. Beaches at a distance but didn't bother us as we prefer the pool. Not for those with mobility problems as about 15 min walk into Cala n Forcat but all on the flat. Great entertainment for kids. All staff really helpful.
For the third year in a row we, with three other families in tow, stayed at the Sea Club. Absolutely spotless and well maintained. The staff are very friendly and very helpful. The kids reps are, with the rare exception, top class. We found it very safe for the kids - ranging in ages from 2 to 15. One tip though is to avoid eating in the complex restaurant or pizzeria - generally inedible. The supermarket on site is ok for essentials but markedly dearer than the local supermarkets which are plentiful and close by.
What an excellent holiday, Went in July 2004 with the wife and 2 children. The appartments are clean and spacious, the pools were excellent, and the childrens entertainment was amazing. Would visit again.
What a great holiday
Booked through First Choice 4 weeks before we left. Furthest resort from the airport, transfer time about an hour and a half but well worth it. Resort was clean, very friendly and the rooms were very spacious. Entertainment was a laugh as long as you didn't expect West End performances. Kids club superb, always something for them to do..they had a whale of a time. All the staff were really friendly both in reception and the bars/resturants. Town was about a 20 minute walk but once there plenty of shops, bars and resturants.
Great family fun, well worth it.
