Last month we spent a week in Menorca in the resort of Cala N’Bosch. Menorca is perfect for families, it’s a small island, not too built up and relatively quiet.
The hotel had 3 pools, one of them a splash pool, which is where we spent most of our time, a big one suitable for families and a “quiet” one.
The splash pool was of course the most popular one and it’s where the kids wanted to be all day. My kids especially enjoyed being there towards the end of the day, when they switched off the water slides and it was a bit quieter.
Pre children we would have never contemplated the idea of going all inclusive but these days it’s the ideal option for us.
The food from the buffet was excellent, quite a big choice for everybody and they even had a chocolate fountain one evening much to the kids delight.
For those that didn’t want to have lunch in the restaurant, there was a burger bar next to one of the pools.
Being all inclusive meant the kids could have as many ice creams, drinks and of course slush as they wanted
The hotel’s kids club was run by Thomas Cook, they had two different groups 3 –7 and 8 -11. The kids went nearly every day to at least one session and they really enjoyed it, this meant we had 2 and a half hours to ourselves.
The hotel also had it’s own entertainment with daily activities for children and adults
We had a one bedroom apartment which was big enough for the 4 of us, but it was a bit dated, the bathroom had a bath with a shower and it also had a separate shower which always flooded the floor whenever we used it.
There were also too many sun loungers around the pools, so many that you couldn’t really walk around them. I guess it’s probably not very nice in high season when it’s very busy and everybody is on top of each other.
Overall it was a fantastic holiday, we all really enjoyed ourselves and the kids keep asking when are we going back again
Would we go back to the same place? Definitely, although I’d like to try and explore a different part of the island.
