Sol Falco by Melia -All Inclusive
Ranked #7 of 13 Hotels in Cala'n Bosch

Reviewed 2 August 2011

As always I will be as objective as possible with my review.
Our first visit to Menorca, we were very impressed with how clean everywhere was kept by the municipal authorities. The resort, Cala en Bosch, was equally pristine and attractive.
The Sol Falco hotel is a collection of low-rise (2 and 3 storey) apartments set in well maintained, tidy, clean gardens of a stated 10 acres. The main pool complex of three large pools varies from a shallow pool suitable for children and games, to a deep pool for adults and diving.
There are several smaller, quieter pools amongst the gardens, serving the apartment blocks, with plenty of sunbeds available. (More about the sunbeds later)
The hotel itself is a little dated and fraying round the edges a bit, but nevertheless is a perfectly adequate three star. The service areas, reception and the rooms were all spotlessly clean.
The staff were all very appoachable, polite and friendly.
There was a very extensive range of foods available in the restaurant from 13.00 until 22.00 and generally was of good quality. The salad bar was especially good.
The entertainment team were very good as were the night time shows.

I have a few subjective criticisms.
The menu at times was a little top heavy on sea food for my liking, but if you are a seafood afficionado, you would be well served.
The sun beds are quite old, of the type which bounce up and give you a whack if you sit in the middle and a lot of them had broken head stays.
The air conditioning was virtually non existent, with the ceiling fan just moving the warm air around.
This is a criticism of Thomsons, the tour operator and not the hotel. In fairness, the brochure does imply being 'family friendly' with plenty of activities for children. It does not say that the hotel seems to be totally geared towards families with small children and that it is a very popular destination for Italian families.
So if you are of a certain age and are seeking a quiet, relaxing holiday with fine dining in an adult, sophisticated restaurant with linen tablecloths, then it is not for you.
If you have a young family who love noisy play around the pools, or if you just love rugrats and ankle biters anyway and want wall to wall noise when you are dining, then the Sol Falco is for you.
Would we go back? Yes to Cala en Bosch. Yes to Menorca. For us personally, not to the Falco.
But it is a very good 3 star hotel.
How to improve? Have a separate dining area/room for singles and childless couples with a more refined dining experience.
Get some new sunbeds.
Waiter service during the day to the satellite pools for drinks.
Fix the aircon system.
Cook the bacon a little more.

Room Tip: Ask for a room remote from the main pools.

I have to say that I was somewhat hesitant at staying in a 3 star hotel, especially All Inclusive. I'm well travelled and a bit of a fine wine and dining person and the food was excellent and so was the wine I was surprised to discover, as on All Inclusive it generally isn't. A tip though is the wine in the dining room is far nicer than behind the bar so smuggle a glass out if you can. The pasta chef was terrrific, all his dishes were very good.
The staff were great. Laura the Thompsons rep was excellent and would certainly go that extra mile for anyone. I enquired about local nature trips and she got a stack of information for me the next day. She was lovely. Best rep I've come across. Kids Club was good, I was a little surprised to find I had to pay for it in the afternoons but I still thought it good value and the staff very nice. On a Friday you can put them in for a whole day for 10 euros and they do lots of games and swimming pool stuff. Loved the aqua aerobics with Emilio, he really enjoys his job and was very good. Evening entertainment was good, especially the external ones. Kids mini disco was spot on and lasted for 30 to 40 mins per night which was greatly appreciated as some hotels it's about 20mins.
My only negative was the weather. We must have had about 12 days of rain out of the 14, a couple of them savage so wouldn't go in May/June again.
Yes I would most definitely recommend this hotel, excellent value for money, great food, great staff. No complaints. Oh and bring your own towels or it's a euro per towel per day.

We were delighted with this hotel our room was clean and comfortable, it was a flintstone hotel but this year we travelled without children but there is plenty for them to do and the entertainment team seemed to keep them busy.
the sunbeds were plentyful and the walk to the beach was just 5 mins away down a predestrian only walk way, but the beds on the beach we thought were expensive at 17 euros a day. there was a large choice of food every day, regulars stated that the quality had dropped this year in favour of quanity, but we found it a normal for a all inclusive hotel.The bar staff were very friendly and service was quick.
Caln'Bosch was only a 20 minute walk , and the bus to the town only 25 mins and was regular every hour.
