Travel Blogs from Ciudadela
Leaving Calaceite we had a rather enjoyable drive heading towards Sitges to kill a bit of time before moving on to El Prat Airport Barcelona for our flight at 20:30 to Mallorca. The country side from Calaceite towards Tarragona reminded us a bit of northern NSW with it's green rolling hills and all the orchards. In Sitges we walked round town and the beach for a while before sitting down at a restaurant for a very nice meal. First up we had a variety of Tapas ...
... inhabitants, decided to commence a 2.3km hike to get us to a beach perhaps a little less travelled Cala Macarella and that we did. It was a beautiful walk with many a snap taken looking out into the bays we walked around. We finally hit a boardwalk down and when we saw the sign for parking... we knew that this beach wouldnt be as unihabitated as we would have hoped haha We still took a lovely dip in the water there and rustled up a spot in what was left of ...
It was not an option to miss our favorite summer holiday destination: Menorca. Our 9th year going to Ciutadella, a perfect opportunity to spend quality time (and lobster) with Elisa's family before the trip.
The weather, as usual, was perfect, sunny every day, 28C. The beaches fantastic, the water so transparent.
... freed from our nautical torture prison and making our complaints with the service provider we headed back for a Frozen Yoghurt and then to return to our spot on the beach. After swimming in the warm sea which I haven’t done in years and sun drying our skin we decided to hit the shops and venture into the numerous souvenir stalls. It never fails to surprise me how much **** is in these types of shops, and yet I still found myself purchasing a giant 60cm x 60cm ...
... occurrences during the night and we were off next morning to anchor at Cala Santanyi. The sailing was great to start off with but then as we tried to turn the corner of the headland we found that it was not possible to steer even a reasonable course to the anchorage so we had to motorsail the final 6nm. We may have persevered if it had been ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Apartamentos Princesa Playa Ciudadela
Best hotel ever!
We booked this hotel a month ago and have just returned from a one week stay. I really don't know where to start. This hotel is SUPERB! The pool area is huge and very clean with lots of sunbeds. The rooms are kept immaculate by very friendly staff. It is also useful to have a firdge in the room and our room was triple with 3 proper single beds.
The evening entertainment is extremely professional and even my two sons aged 15 and 13 enjoyed it. The food is wonderful with loads of choice. I really can't recommend this hotel highly enough. The Cosmos reps were also wonderful and very helpful..in fact not a criticism to be made at all.
8 times and going back
We have been to this hotel 8 times and will be back next year.
Great place to stay.
Rooms spacious and clean.
Restaurant - very good choice
Pool - Excellent, spacious and plenty of beds
Entertainment Team - The best - Plenty of activities.
Every time we go, the children, aged 17 and 12 tell us it was the best ever.
Highly recommend Playa Princesa
this was another late deal that i booked with my partner. we booked it at birmingham airport about 10 in the morning and were on the plane at 4! we arrived at our resort in time to walk down to the marina and have a meal. i have always been a bit worried about visiting the spanish islands like menorca and majorca as i like some local culture not just a little britain. (short sighted i know but you tend to go by experience). menorca was beautiful. the hotel was wonderful very friendly staff especially in the bar. we went self catering and the only problem we had was finding a large supermarket that didn't just stock frozen food as we had no freezer. to go self catering for longer than a week you would really need to hire a car as there is a great supermarket just outside cuitadella. the beach at calla n bosch is not the best and can get very crowded even in september. we decided to take the costal path down to a beach we had heard was gorgeous. what we didnt realise was the walk would take us 2 hours we went totally un prepared no water or anything. however it was well worth it the beach was absolutely spectacular pure white sands crystal clear sea and the scenery on the walk itself was breaktaking. be warned there is a nudist area of the beach and some people insit on spilling over on to the public side but it's easy to ignore. there are also no amenities at all on the beach and you are a very long walk from any shops so take drinks with you!!! the beach is accessable by car but you have to go through cuitadella so if you do decide to go on foot don't make the mistake we did and think it would be quicker to walk back on the road. you have to take the costal path. the hotel is in a wonderful position as buses and the marina are right on your doorstep this is not the place for a clubby holiday though. it was exactly what we were after, a relaxing holiday with a little bit of quiet entertainment.
this hotel is great, plenty to do, the animation team were super. 10 in our party 4 adults and 6 children ages 10-2. Pool big and clean, food was great, hot and plenty of it. Staff were helpful and polite. About 10 mins walk to marina which is lovely, with plenty of bars and food places. Apartments were very clean and airy. Felt very safe even at night. Would go half board again.
Fantastic Loacation And Property.
hotel Princesa Playa/Menorca
As a family we have stayed in the hotel for the last 3 years and returning back this year, the staff go out of their way to make your holiday the best you have ever had, I work for Airtours and have no hesitation going on holiday to this property even though it is exclusive in the UK to the Cosmos
holiday group, the family shows in the evening are superb, so much effort is made in the costumes and performance, the food is great loads of choice and never cold! The bedrooms are always kept spotlessly clean by the housekeeping staff, and the swimming pool is clean and always a spare sun-bed is to be found and we went last August! If your choice of hotel means quality and value then make this top of your list!
What a great stay - have just returned from this hotel and we were seriously impressed.
Loved the hotel princesa playa
What a fabulous place. Lovely clean and attractive hotel. Fabulous massive pool with kids area. Rooms were nice and clean, only thing missing was a kettle! Staff were fantastic, entertainment good for kids, although some of it was a bit butlins. Food was ok, but got a bit boring after a while, but maybe im just too fussy. Harbour is about ten minute walk away but its worth it, lovely restaurants and plenty for kids to do. Would defimately go back to priincesa playa but would probably opt for apartment next time. Great holiday!
We have been to this hotel for the past 3 years and have already booked again for next year. We have two daughters aged 13 and 10 and they have never been bored, hard to believe I know but why do you think we keep going back!!
We are returning to the Princesa Playa for our 3rd time in May this year. The hotel is truly outstanding in all aspects. The rooms are spacious and very very clean, there are 2 adults and 2 children (4&6) in our party and we find the room no problem at all. The staff are fabulous especially the waiters who seem to work forever. The food is buffet style, and although sometimes the restaurant can become very crowded the staff cope well. Food is replenished very quickly, and everyones taste is accounted for. The kids have a little buffet of their own which does tend to be the same ie chips, pasta, nuggets etc but they seem happy enough.The kids club is run by the hotel twice a day, or you have the tour operators club, for that during busy periods you need to sign up the day before as numbers are limited. It gets the children doing activities for about 2 hours a day and they seem to have fun. In the evening there is a mini disco which starts about 9.00pm and goes on for approx 45 mins. The entertainment staff will then take the kids off to watch a movie whilst the adult entertainment starts. If your child wants you they will bring your child to you.The pool and gardens are outstanding. Lovely size shallow pool for the younger ones and a huge pool for adults and teenagers. Lots of places to sit in the grounds or around the pool, though down by the kids bit it gets very very busy and most people will be up at the crack of dawn and put their towels over sunbeds!!!! So Beware.Cala n Bosch Marina is about a 15-20 minute walk away and here you will find bars and restaurants and shops.
We are visiting the Princesa Playa for the 4th year running! We have 2 children, now aged 7 and 4. The hotel complex is fantastic, offering self catering and half board. We stay on half board but have taken friends with us each year who have stayed on self catering. There is a hotel kids club on offer everyday as well as Cosmos's holiday club.
