    The bathroom needs hooks on the back of the door and a towel rail in front of the wash basin . The bath/shower needs a non slip mat.

    The staff were top tier as was the hotel and rooms.

    The swimming pool was freezing. Needs to be heated. Hardly any guests used as the water was so cold

    Lovely big junior suite and very clean. The staff go out their way to help and beautiful surroundings.

    Pool is huge and well kept, like everything surrounding it. Nice accomodations and cleaning service. Breakfast and dinner buffet with lots of variety and different everyday. Short walk away from 2 beaches (Son Xoringuer and Cala n' Bosch), as well as shopping areas. Activities throughout the day for entertainment, including for the kids. Highly recommend it and certainly would return.

    The nearby beach is not top notch. The location is in the corner of the island which makes other beaches and attractions a bit harder to reach.

    Great for those who prefer to relax at the hotel. Beautiful territory, nice pool, sport facilities. Rich breakfast and dinner buffet. Comfy room.

    The hotel is in the middle of small village so not much going on outside of resort. The food pricey as buffet when you choose half /full board at the hotel ( 16£ per person per meal)

    Great place for families, wonderful facility for babies, Good size of rooms with perfect temperature. Good food selection when using full board. Small water park 10 mins drive from the hotel. Very friendly stuff.

    The dinner buffet was good but very repetitive. We got a little bored after a few days as the food didn't vary very much. I was also disappointed not to see more spanish cuisine, like a decent paella and shellfish.

    Staff very helpful. Great for families with a decent amount of things going on, without it feeling too much like a big resort.

    The evening entertainment was great but the baby disco was a bit disorganized. We stayed at another property in Menorca for 4 nights straight after our stay at Princess Playa and their animation staff and baby disco was exceptional and very engaging. I also wish they had swimming pool exercises class.

    It's the second time we stayed at this property despite having a family rule of not staying at the same place twice for holidays. And I think we will go back there next year. That says it all :)

    The in house hotel shop was expensive and although coffee sachets and sugar were supplied in the room on arrival it seemed odd that milk was not supplied too?!

    The pool is lovely, the staff friendly and helpful. The breakfast was plentiful and varied, as was dinner although my preference would be to eat out as it gets a bit 'samey'

    Smell in the room from constant humidity. Breakfast not very varied -very small selection of fresh fruits (kiwi and oranges mainly) and vegetables (tasteless tomatos and cucumbers). Late check-out was not possible the day we left, however the hotel did provide a shower/changing room, fresh towels, etc. For a next occasion we might consider a location even closer to Ciutadella/ main road to Mahon (e.g. Cala Blanca) that would make access to all the island's beaches even faster (i.e. save the 10min drive to Ciuradella).

    Location near a very nice and long beach, Son Xoriguer, excellent for snorkelling too (very good snorkel spot on the left side of the Neptuno part of the beach). Location 10 min from Ciutadella by car, most of the good beaches within reasonable reach, i.e. 20-40min drive. Location was alos good for having meals either in a small marina very close by which has a lot of restaurants and bars or Ciutadella. Confortable room and bed. Cleaning performed daily. Excellent wifi.

    There is only 1 bar to go to in the evening, which up until 10pm offers children's entertainment. Great if you have a family but if you don't have children, there is no where to go and relax after a meal. The little things matter and for a 4* hotel, I would expect light bulbs that work. Also the welcome pack states 2 bottles of water - which we got, and coffee and tea satchets - which were not there. With so much competition from other hotels, these little things matter.

    Very clean, garden's were lovely and the apartments were well designed. Only had breakfast at the hotel, so happy with the buffet breakfast. Staff were friendly and helpful.

    everything was excellent for us.

    - For us the key of rating this property so highly is the staff. they are so lovely, accommodating, happy and super hard working bunch. everyone went above and beyond to ensure our needs are met and we feel happy and welcome. We traveled with our 16 months daughter and everyone was so nice and friendly to her. She felts so comfortable. The hotel is nicely equipped, we loved the evening entertainment and animation team. The bar and restaurant staff are simply excellent and food is great! Will miss the chefs pizza and daily fresh fish. We are definitively going back next year.

    Only drawback the location, as you will have to drive up to Ciutadella (about 20 minutes away) to take the main road which lead to the most beautiful beaches of the coast. Other than that great hotel!

    Room was excellent, very clean and quiet. The hotel itself was quiet and comfortable, great swimming pool and plenty of communal areas where to play and relax. I would definitely go back. Great breakfast range for only 8.5 euros!

    Although there were various vegetables and salad available every evening, there was no attempt to cater for vegetarian guests. There were no vegetarian main courses, however, on one evening the cook did make me pizza without the meat or fish offered that evening. Rice and pasta dishes had meat or fish in them. I felt very disappointed as I had emailed to ask if there would a veggie choice. The food was also luke warm. Desserts were not very nice or varied. I cant recommend this hotel for half board, I would stay again b and b as the breakfast is very good. The pool area and gardens are very relaxing and cared - for.

    Spacious room with very nice bathroom. Nice pool area and attractive gardens. Very good breakfast.

    The hotel was set in a quiet area but only a few minutes walk from the beach and bars. The marina of Calan Bosch was a mere 10 minute walk.It had a wonderful main pool plus a good second one as well. The gardens of the hotel were amazing and there was plenty of space to sit on a lounger in the shade if needed. The snack bar food and drink was cheaper than many bars and overall the grounds etc.. were always quiet considering the number of people staying there. Thoroughly recommended.

    Though there was a good variety of breakfasts for each national taste, the quality of the food was poor in comparison to other breakfast buffets we have experienced, in particular the ham and cheese, mass catering quality - it would have been good to have something from the excellent local cheese and ham on offer. Long queues for coffee machine. Some entertainment poor e.g. musical miming. Triple room only set out two glasses and cups. You have to hire a key for the safe.

    The staff were efficient and friendly. The courtesy room offering secure luggage storage and shower usage with clean towels for those who are leaving after check out is an excellent facility.
