This beautiful and stylish duplex appartment overlooks Arenl's bay. It is located in a peaceful resort, only 5 minutes walk to a long shallow beach, ideal for kids, and to local amenities and basic services (restaurants, supermarkets, pharmacy, etc).The appartment has a front terrace with table and chairs for seating up to ten. The living area, with large windows facing the sea, has TV, CD/Radio player. The kitchen is provided with all necessary facilities (modern vitroceramic kitchen, oven, fridge, washing machine, etc). Upstairs, there are 2 full bathrooms and 3 double bedrooms, with balconies looking to the sea or to the pool and gardens of the resort.
We had a fantastic stay in this apartment.
The view was breathtaking
Really spacious apartment in superb location just a walk down the steps to the beach.
the apartment was as described , lots of room and very clean and comfortable , we had everything we needed for our stay. the pool was steps away from the front door and it felt like a private pool In the morning as it was rarely used by other people , it was a little busier in the afternoon but still quiet , lovely.
the balcony area was our favourite place to eat and relax , it is worth coming here for the view alone , just stunning.
maybe not a good place for those with mobility problems as although the beach is minutes away there are a lot of steps and the resort is hilly in general.
there is a nice restaurant opposite where you can use the pool for the price of a drink which we enjoyed. also a supermarket where you can buy fresh bread and most other things you need.
bus stops are near from which you can easily visit other parts of the island and a little train to take you to other nearby places.
we loved it and didn't want to leave, we would certainly return.
Amazing place, we loved the house . Incredible beautiful, Great views, confortable, all we needed for a relaxing and Perfect time! Thanks !
This is a perfect apartment close to one of the best beaches on the island. The view is absolutely magnificent and is even better than the pictures. We enjoyed the terrace every day. Three nice bedrooms and to bathrooms is great, the kitchen has everything you need and all was very clean. Fans in each bedroom was necessary, but an air-condition or a ceilingfan had been nice. The only thing we really missed was wifi in the apartment. (But all restaurants has free wifi.).
Two grocery shops very close. We enjoyed eating out every day the restaurants serves great food.
We discovered that taxi from the airport is a cheaper than the airport-busses, and paid 35 euro one way (bus cost about 11 euro p.p).
And thanks to Elsa for your useful help.
The description of this apartment is very accurate.
The accommodation is more than enough for 6 people although one of the rooms is a bunk room the beds are full size single bunks (top bunk does NOT have a guard so may not be suitable for younger children).
There were 6 of us, 2 adults and 4 children aged 10, 9, 7 and 6. We spent a week here at the end of July 2010.
Kitchen facilities very good, living room very comfortable with new, large flat screen TV, dvd player etc. Beds comfortable. View from balcony overlooking the bay is fab!
The pool at the front of the apartment is 30 paces from the front door. It's about 15 metres long with a small area for non-swimmers at one end. Although there are 10 or more apartments looking over the pool we were often the only family using the pool.
There are enough restaurants, reasonably priced, which are close by which serve good local food as well as suitable 'English' food for the kids (avoid the chicken nuggets!); although the menus are pretty similar.
The beach is only 5 minutes walk away but down 50+ steps. Once on the beach, the sand is clean, as is the water which is beautifully clear and warm and when calm the walk into the water is very gradual and lovely for the kids.
The resort was generally very quiet, even in the evening although we weren't looking for a busy night life as we had young children with us.
The one down side from an adult point of view is that this is really a 'resort' rather than a 'town'. There is no 'high street' or promenade. No town square or church. Not much night life that we could see - but we didn't look very hard.
A lovely time was had by all and we would recommend for a very relaxing, easy holiday with all that you need for the beach and to relax round the pool. We did not hire a car or explore the island as we were only there for a week.
We used this website for our transfers and the service was excellent. Worked out about £10 per person per journey.
Thanks Elsa for all your help in making this a very enjoyable holiday.
Finally my friends and I decided to rent this apartment in Minorca thanks to the photographies that were appearing in the website. We were not upset with, it is located in a privileged place, the sight of the terrace is incredible, to have breakfast, lunch or dinner with a view to the cliffs and the sea is unpayable. Perfectly furnished and very clean. We did not have any problem in the whole stay. With all the tools necessaries to cook and do life in the apartment as if you were in your own house. Supermarket located opposite to the apartments where to buy food without need taking car. Only 15 km away from Mahon, just in case you like to walk along the city and closely to desert and paradisiac beaches. We are thinking to return at the end of September and enjoy again of a few days of relaxing time without worries.
Arenal d'en Castell belongs to the Es Mercadal municipality. It is located on the Minorcan northern coast, on a wonderful shell-shape bay with crystalline waters and surrounded by beautiful landscapes.
In the resort and the vicinity (at walking distances), you can find a variety of amenities and entertainments such as supermarkets, restaurants, lively bars with on-site activities, car-rental, boat-rental.
The calm and shallow crystal waters of the bay make them ideal for families with children, and offers as well a good variety of water sports.
