The most spectacular horseshoe beach, the water is really clear and safe for young and old. There are a couple of good restaurants and we had lovely meals there. The resort is very hilly and doesn't really have a centre as such. Not suitable for people with walking difficulties as we saw many people struggling.

Fantastic horseshoe sandy beach with crystal clear water. Days can be enjoyed snorkelling, hiring a pedalo or simply relaxing!<br /> <br /> Several cafe's / restaurants are dotted just back from the beach which makes it easy to obtain an ice-cream or drinks but to try and keep the cost down we opted for the local supermarkets which can be found just behind the beach.

Too noisy but a very nice cove. In Arenal d'en Castell there are a few hotels/bars that spoil the experience by playing very loud music from 10pm to early morning. Mainly the big hotel up on the hill. We did raise this with the hotel but they just said, that they are free to play music!

Lovely area, fairly quiet but lively enough to be able to have a nice meal/drink and a wander around. Locals were all polite and friendly and seemed happy to have us there. The play area with bouncy castles, trampolines, go karts etc was a great addition for the kids and all very reasonably priced. The beach is gorgeous with plenty of bars/restaurants along the front. The access was great for wheelchairs/pushchairs which was a huge plus for us. We used the pedalos in the sea, again very reasonably priced for and hour. A highlight of the holiday. Would definitely visit again.

I liked the resort location especially proximity to the beach, few minutes walk. Beach was perfect for us. We had stunning view from our apartment and felt very private. There is a shop literally attached to the complex and another shop across the road, pharmacy few minutes walk. We didn't go anywhere else as me and granddaughter had all we needed at the complex. She liked Kids Club and evening disco for children. Place is little hilly, prepare to walk up and down on a road or steps.

Arsenal de Castro is lovely with a superb beach. Best I've ever been to. I haven't rated it higher as it is reasonably small. Reasonably priced spar supermarket outside the hotel did have everything we needed as half boarders. There were other restaurants but we didn't feel the need to try them as the food was so good. Unless you're happy to stay in the same village you will need to hire a car and best doing before you go as cheaper. It is a reasonably isolated spot although bear in mind the size of the island. Mahon the capital was a 20 minute drive but bus service not good. Also always hire a car that is delivered with a full tank and you just have to top up as you literally can't drive that far. We used just over half a tank over 4 days.

Nothing much to do in the local area. A 20-25 mins bus ride to Mahon or Fornells will take you to life, if that's what you're looking for.

A perfect resort, quiet but enough restaurants to eat in. Would highly recommend Good Bridge Cafe and Blue Arenal, both for the excellent top quality food and friendly staff who remember us from one year to next, and also for the magnificent sea views. Beautiful beach and sea, water park in walking distance wherever you are in resort. Feels like home when return as most couples do! Around 4 supermarkets/gift shops but not really a shopping resort but can get everything you need for your holiday.

Beaches

The pretty hoop shaped bay is home to one of the islands best stretches of sand and its shallow waters make it ideal for families with young children. The beach is a Blue Flag beach so it's very clean and safe and there are many watersports available should you want to be a little more active.

There is a snack bar at the east side of the beach and a few bars and restaurants at the western end so plenty of options.

Things to Do

There is a little mini-train that runs around the resort which is a good idea when it is hot as you still get to see everything without using up too much energy. The mini-train also runs to the nearby village of Na Macaret. The local bus service is very reliable should you wish to go further a field.

There are a couple of playareas for younger children, one of which is in the commercial centre and the other one is outdoors.
If you are lucky enough to visit the resort during one of Arenal d'en Castells many fiestas, you will see colourful street processions, horse riding displays, traditional dancing and fireworks.

If you enjoy walking, you can also go and explore the pine woods and cliff top walks nearby.

Out and About

There is a decent selection of restaurants in the resort and you will find everything from pizza to typical Spanish cuisine. There are a few bars, some of which provide entertainment in the summer evenings. Although there is some entertainment, nightlife is pretty low-key so you may need to travel a little further a field if you feel like partying.

There is not a huge amount of shops but there is a supermarket and a few shops so I'm sure you will be ok for basic items.

Nearby Attractions

Just 10 minutes outside of the resort, you will find Menorca's only golf course at Son Parc. Not only is there an 18 hole golf course but there is also a putting green, driving range and outdoor bar/restaurant.

A 30 minute drive will take you to Mahon, the capital of Menorca. The island's biggest museum is here and there is also an 18th century gin distillery. There are plenty of pavement cafes in the main square should you fancy a spot of lunch or a little refreshment.

A trip to the former capital of Menorca, Ciudadela is something you should factor into your holiday as it is packed with cobbled streets, Gothic churches, Moorish style buildings and medieval architecture, there is tons to see here. If you fancy a rest after all the sightseeing, take a wander down to the harbour front for a little drink or a bite to eat and watch the world go by.

Whilst in Ciudadela, you could jump on board the family-orientated pirate cruise which leaves from the harbour. Your captain will sail past the picturesque coves, whitewashed villages and rocky headlands while telling everyone pirate tales, then he will anchor up at a beach where everyone will get off and there will be some fun and games for the children and some relaxation for the adults. After a couple of hours everyone will head back to the harbour.

If you are feeling energetic, take a hike up Mount Toro, the islands highest peak. It is just an hours hike up green hills and through winding paths. At the top there is a 17th century sanctuary carved out of the rock and there are some fantastic views to be had, on a clear day you may see a lot of the island.
