Well appointed apartment in stunning setting

  • 4 of 5

Beautifully appointed accommodation in the most stunning of settings. Accommodation's balcony provided the most fabulous sunsets with sea views stunning all best viewed with glass of wine in hand.

Layout, maintenance and cleanliness of apartment was immaculate with every facility required for a self catering stay provided. MC management were really helpful with general advice and also any questions re surrounding areas. Instructions to the apartment were clear and were easy to follow with excellent customer service at booking and throughout.

Local eateries in platges de fornells and in fornells all served the best fish dishes I have ever had but they also served more basic meals too.

Visits to MAO and Ciutedella for shops, architechture and for beautiful harbours are a must, whist ES Castell although smaller has a lovely feel to it and provided some lovely restaurants/bars.

Too many gorgeous beaches with Mitjana and Es Grau nice to visit and walks to enjoy but local beach at Cala Tirant provides ideal location for families as beach/sea safe and calm with shallow waters and only 10 minutes away walking. Water sports, walks and cycling all offered locally around the platges de fornells area and were great to experience.

I am missing the sunsets and sea views already and am counting down days until my next visit to Menorca and this lovely apartment. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to enjoy it and the lovely menorcan island.

Fabulous apartment in the best of locations....

  • 5 of 5

Been going to Fornells for the past 12 years and stayed in many different apartments - this was the best one yet. Great location, with amazing views and the sound of the sea to lull you to sleep. The description is spot on and the space adequate for two people. The balcony is great but the real bonus was the roof terrace and the furniture available to use.

Would highly recommend Café Nord for eating out, great food and friendly staff - but if eating in or out on the terrace is more your thing be sure to visit the Factory Delicatessen round in Fornells which has a fantastic selection of fresh food to carry out, rotisserie chicken, tapas, pasta etc.

Would definitely recommend this accommodation as long as its not for when we next want to book it.

All in all just a great place to stay - thank you.

Lovely apartment with amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is set in a fantastic location with beautiful views from both the balconies. The apartment is compact but very well designed and there was plenty of space for the 3 of us. There is lots of storage and well equipped, the shower in the bathroom was fantastic!

One of the best things for us would have to be the terrace. The views from here were absolutely amazing, and we really enjoyed having a glass of wine and watching the sun set whilst listening to the sea. Our daughter also loved to play up here in the late afternoons when the sun was not as hot.

Playa Fornells is very quiet and perfect for a peaceful and relaxing family break. The gardens around the apartment are pretty and very well looked after, the shared pool is really clean - our 22 month old daughter had lots of fun splashing around.

The beach 'Cala Tirant' (2 minute drive or 15 minute walk) is very child friendly and stays shallow for many meters out - there was always plenty of room to get a good spot.

Within the resort there are a couple of supermarkets and a few restaurants. We would really recommend eating at 'Cafe Del Nord' We don't like to eat at the same place more than once whilst on holiday but we returned 3 times within the week!

We hired a car for the week which is essential if you want to really experience Menorca. The apartments location is a brilliant central point to vist other areas of the island. We enjoyed visiting Ciutadella, Binimel-la beach, Cala en Porta(Cova d'en Xoroi' a must see!), Monte Toro, Alaior and the 'St Christopher Fiesta' at Es Migjorn Gran was lots of fun!

We would really recommend staying here for a relaxing family holiday. Menorca is a beautiful, family friendly island. This apartment is a great place to stay and enjoy what the island has to offer - a weeks stay was not long enough and we were very sad to leave!

The holiday far exceeded our expectations and we hope to stay here again in the future.

Fornells 11

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just as it looked on your website, clean,well equipped and a fantastic view. It was especially nice to sit on the balcony with a cold beer and watch the sun go down. Our son enjoyed the lovely swimming pool and made some friends to play with. On the whole it was just what we needed.

Superb location, dazzling sunsets.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this accommodation in June 2010. The property description is totally accurate but the dramatic location is even better then described. The views from the balcony are ever changing and we sat in the evening just listening to the sounds of the waves and watching the fantastic sunsets.

The apartment was comfortable,well equipped and spotlessly clean. Although there are other properties on the development it was so peaceful we could have been the only occupants.

The communal swimming pool which looked clean and well maintained. The gardens and lawns were very tidy and colourful although some of the cacti close to the paths had some vicious looking spikes which could present a hazard to toddlers or small children.

The complex has a couple of restaurants/bars, supermarkets and sporting facilities.

We had a hire car and spent most days visiting different areas of the island, the island is very small and has many places of interest.

Eating out could be quite expensive. There are some very smart restaurants with prices to match, however there were also many more reasonably priced places and especially if you chose from the "menu of the day" Supermarket food prices were on par with UK.

This is a superb property for a relaxing holiday in a very special location and one which I would totally recommend.
