      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 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

      What a suprise


      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.

      Great hotel


      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!

      A Wonderful Stay


      What a great stay - have just returned from this hotel and we were seriously impressed.

      The food - excellent and with a HUGE variety buffet style in a lovely airy spacious dining room, I think it was divided into smoking and non smoking but they were very well spaced apart so non-smokers were not bothered by any stray smoke

      The staff - cheerful and friendly and very helpful. Even though we made an effort to speak Spanish when possible their English was excellent

      The pool - huge, beautiful and clean

      The room - spacious, very clean, large bathroom, powerful shower, loads of hot water, tv, balcony, air conditioning and a mini fridge which was a godsend!

      The facilities - reasonably priced hotel shop where you can hire bikes and Velosplays, poolside snack bar, table tennis, shuffleboard, tennis courts, footie nets, basketball nets, pool tables, air hockey table, electronic kiddie rides and a kids playground. Pleasant bar with entertainment of all kinds most evenings (and reasonably priced drinks), but if we chose to stay in our room, we could sit out on the terrace with minimum noise. The hotel grounds were extensive and very well kept with beautiful shrubs and flowers and huge amphorae decoration

      Location - the beach nearby was not the prettiest beach, but it had a couple of nice cafes with some shops and a very reasonable car hire place - all about 5 minute walk from the hotel grounds. Also about 15 minute walk from Cala'n Bosc. we felt safe at all times walking around at night, but obviously caution should still be taken! There is a bus stop literally right across the road with buses running to Ciutadella every 15 minutes (only 1.50 Euro each way)

      The negatives - only complaints we would have are: we would have preferred a real double bed instead of 2 singles pushed together, but I understand thats fairly normal. Also (this is more a personal preference) the veggies were occasionally overcooked, but the rest of the food was delicious.

      All in all - we don't usually do "sun packages" but were extremely glad in this case that we did - we would happily recommend it to anyone and hope that they had as positive an experience as we did.

      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!

      Fantastic Place!


      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 have stayed in both the hotel rooms and self catering apartments. They are well equipped, clean and comfortable, maid service comes 6 out of 7 days. The pools are clean, there is a life guard on duty and the pool bar supplies drinks and food almost all day, great if your peckish or thirsty! There's no need to get up early for a sunbed either, there are always plenty, even spares at midday!

      The dining hall is clean, the food is served buffet style and is delicious with loads of choice, from soups, salads, meat, cheeses, vegetables etc, all presented like a top hotel would. They also serve pasta, chips, chicken nuggets and pizzas (great if you've got children!) This year we went self catering but as the food is so good we opted for the half board option when we got there and got a great deal, 14 days breakfasts and evening meals for the price of 10 days! Bargain!

      The sports activities are numerous and cater for all ages, from darts, archery, pistol shooting and shuffle board to the more energetic table tennis, volleyball, tennis and football. Every afternoon there is either water-volley or water-polo.

      In the evening there is always some form of entertainment, don't miss the entertainment staff when they perform!

      The hotel staff and waiters are always very helpful, courteous and friendly, in fact when we arrived this year some of the bar staff came out to greet us!!

      The marina is only 20 minutes walk and has a good selection of shops, we haven't eaten at any of the restaurants though because the food at the hotel has always been enough.

      We highly recommend this hotel and resort.

      Love it, love it, love it


      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.

      Cannot rate this hotel complex highly enough. I am a very fussy traveller especially when it comes to service and cleanliness, and this hotel gets my vote every time. Roll on May 21st.

      Fantastic Hotel


      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.

      There is a daily entertainment programme which you can join in with if you want or you can just relax by the pool which is huge, freeform and one of the reason we originally chose this hotel 4 years ago.I really cannot fault this hotel and the resort of Cala'n Bosch is a short stroll away and has a lovely little marina. You will not be disappointed if you choose this hotel and resort...we're not ! So much so we are already contemplating booking for 2005 as soon as we can!

      ... Ciutadella had a much better feel about it. Very moorish and had plenty of narrow streets to get lost in and hidden squares with cafes in which to enjoy a coffee or maybe something a little stronger - if back on the island in the future thus would be a nice place to have as a base. The 1970s purpose built resort of Binibeca Vell was also worth a visit - probably a nightmare in the peak summer season - as it was built to resemble an old Spanish fishing village with lots ...

Beautiful sand and crystal clear sea (it was genuinely like being in a pool!). The water was on a strange ledge which made the waves come in from all over the place - lots of fun. But it was also really easy to go quite far out and be completely secluded and very peaceful - the ...

Which might not have been such a bad idea, as apparently various parts of the beach are for different "customers"... We were in a quite normal section although did get a few shocks when not concentrating or focussing properly! In the evening, we met with Lisa ...

After a few people jumped, Chloe and Lauren also thought it would be a good idea. Upon getting to the top, it looked ALOT higher then in the water. Chloe made Lauren jump first who awkwardly turned in the air and landed on her bum....yes she ...
