When we arrived we were told by the reception staff they had upgraded us to a better room. It was indeed a lovely room on a corner so we had balconies on two sides of the room.
We only stayed one night here but this is essentially a family resort so quite noisy around the pools, but that's only to be expected. Breakfast was excellent.
We were told when we arrived that we needed to pay 5 euros on leaving to get out of the car park, but when we checked out they said we did not have to pay.
This large hotel mainly caters for elderly tourists and families in all-inclusive holidays. It is situated in a quiet town with numerous elderly ex-pat residents. Beach here not great, but several nice coves nearby. Two swimming pools available including one for children.
Standard rooms clean, refurbished and spacious. Location nice and quiet with good coastal views. Food was lovely and all inclusive drinks with good selection of branded names at no extra cost is good value.
Nice comfortable double sun lounges are excellent when available!
From the minute we arrived we found the staff to be very pleasant, friendly and they helped to make our stay so memorable. Yes some of the facilities could do with updating but cleanliness cannot be faulted. We had a pool view on the second floor of the main hotel and it was just perfect, only thing we would have liked was tea/coffee making facilities with a fridge in the room but as drinks are so readily available throughout the complex from early morning until very late when staying all inclusive this was not really an issue. Hotel gardens are beautiful and all staff from cleaners, bar staff, restaurant, reception and gardeners obviously work very hard and could not do enough for us.
If you are looking for somewhere to relax and chill out then this is the perfect hotel but if you are looking for nightlife, shops, selection of restaurants etc then this is not a great area as very small and quiet. Main town is down a very steep bank but the hotel runs it's own bus service every half hour throughout the day until 7.30pm.
We will definitely make a return trip to this hotel and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing week or two stress free.
A short taxi drive from the airport (about 25 mins) and we arrived at our hotel.
My wife and I were looking for a quiet, child free week away, and we weren't disappointed.
The hotel had a calm relaxing atmosphere and was superbly located on a relatively quiet beach (considering it was August)
The beach area was incredibly well maintained and the coastal path (which ran right past the hotel ) a pleasure to stroll along.
This is the second time we have stayed at the Hotel Carlos and, like the first time, it was a first class experience. The hotel rooms are bright and fresh..the breakfast choices are excellent and the staff just couldn't do enough for us. Every request was attended to within minutes with a smile every time!
We will definitely go back to the Carlos on our next visit to Menorca.
Overall we really enjoyed our staff at Barcelo. The hotel is very nicely decorated with the rooftop bar being a particular highlight. The staff were very helpful and accommodating as well as being exceedingly pleasant. Juan Pablo and Luisa in particular stood out for us.
