A Stay at Carema Beach Hotel, Menorca

A few weeks ago, we were fortunate enough to get the chance to have a couple of days of childcare, with grandparents offering to have the boys. We knew we wanted to make the most of this time and given our love of travel and some much needed overdue sunshine, we decided to book a couple of days away with friends in Menorca. Travelling during term time meant we got better deals on flights and accommodation.  We have been to Menorca before, and took Freddie when he was around 13 months old. It's a beautiful island with so many unspoilt beaches and hidden coves. 

We decided on the resort of Cala 'n Bosch, a resort we have all been to before and absolutely loved. It's just got the perfect mix of everything we look for in a beach holiday- obviously a decent sandy beach, a selection of small shops and supermarkets, great walks close by, as well as being located around a beautiful marina, surrounded by a great choice of friendly bars and restaurants. It's also conveniently located if you want to hop on a bus or hire a car to explore nearby towns like Ciutadella or more secluded beaches. 

First Impressions
As we weren't travelling with children on this occasion, we weren't specifically looking for a hotel with a kids pool or entertainment. We decided on the Carema Beach Menorca, which is the latest hotel on the island by the Carema brand on the island. The hotel is situated on the beach, with direct access from the grounds via a gate system. The hotel complex itself is a set of 3 to 4 storey buildings, built around the pretty grounds lined with palm trees and the swimming pool. On arrival, the reception staff were friendly and helpful and we were offered a glass of juice or champagne which was a nice touch. We decided to hire a car for the duration of our stay and were able to park for free in the on street spaces directly outside the hotel. 


Our room was number 2302, a 'select double room' located on the 3rd floor of Presili apartment block (with access via lift or stairs). Unfortunately our room was located at the front of the hotel, with a balcony overlooking the street and the service entrance to the hotel rather than of the pool or beach. I'd therefore recommend specifically booking a sea view room if you'd prefer a more scenic view.
The apartment was well appointed, with small kitchenette with microwave, hob, fridge, coffee machine, kettle and a small breakfast bar to sit at, and en suite with walk in shower (featuring the most amazing waterfall shower). The room was lovely and bright, having recently been refurbished in a beach hut style. I don't normally sleep very well in hotels as I find the mattresses and pillows too hard, but here, I slept like an absolute dream, and my pillows were unbelievably comfy, I'm pleased to say! The room was cleaned daily, and towels changed if left on the floor. The rooms weren't left as clean as I've known in some hotels, but it was comfortable and definitely not 'dirty' as such.

 We didn't prepare any meals in the kitchen, but having a decent sized fridge was useful for storing bottles of sangria in. The welcome pack of cookies, milk, tea and coffee along with a bottle of water was a nice touch.



Breakfast and dining

We stayed on a bed and breakfast package, and opted to eat lunch and dinner out, though the S'Aigu Buffet restaurant at the hotel does also offer lunch a la carte and evening meals. The restaurant is located overlooking the beach, so if you can, try and get a table out on the terrace for a breakfast with a view!
Buffet breakfasts are one of my favourite parts of a holiday, and the choice at the S'Aigu Buffet was pretty good, with cereals, yogurt and fruit, hot drinks machine, meats and cheeses, a wide selection of breads and tasty pastries, as well as cooked breakfast and the usual show cooking station with omelettes and pancakes (no holiday would be complete without my daily pancakes!).
We opted to buy baguettes at the supermarket for lunch and ate dinner out by the marina in the evenings, so we didn't try the restaurant for lunch or dinner.



The pool and grounds
The grounds were clean and tidy, with plenty of sun loungers surrounding the pool side. We did notice the pool was quite deep, so worth bearing in mind if staying here with children. On that note, there was a small children's pool attached to the main pool, though it was quite small and there weren't any slides, if that's something you consider when booking a hotel with children. 

Some rooms have balconies with stunning views across the complex and out towards the beach. The hotel is situated in the perfect spot, which gated access directly onto the beach. It was lovely to spend a bit of time on the beach, trot back across to the hotel and have a relaxing dip in the pool before getting ready to go for dinner. Pure bliss. 


Overall, we had a lovely couple of days staying at the Carema Beach Menorca. I loved the updated decor and the light and airy feel of the rooms. As it was mid June and therefore still term time, the hotel was lovely and quiet and had a peaceful feel to it. The location of the hotel is ideal, with it being so close to the beach and only a short walk to the shops, restaurants and marina. For a holiday for adults or families with teenagers, I'd say this was a perfect choice for a hotel in Cala 'n Bosch.
