Cala’n Porter has nabbed itself a top location on Menorca’s south coast. It’s perched on cliffs overlooking a horseshoe-shaped bay in a protected nature area. It’s an easy-to-get-round kind of place with the lion’s share of shops, bars and restaurants in the centre. And handily, the capital, Mahon, is just 20 minutes away.

Very nice appartment and location. With plenty of space and very close to Eric Granados (with its top restaurants and cafes). Receptions was very nice and helpful. Recommended!
Property as pictured, nice and clean. No TV so if you have kids may need some other form of entertainment for them at night. It does have good WiFi though. Kitchen has all you need to cook. Problem for us was the stairs, lots of them and having lots of luggage and 2 kids it was very difficult. The front bedroom was noisy at night as there is a bar downstairs and hard to sleep, back bedroom is fine. There is plenty of shops around to eat & shop and the train station is at the end of the street. Owner arranged a taxi to collect us at the airport, and take us back to airport which was very convenient.
Did not meet the owner, only a man who met us and explained everything to us. He did stay a while at the apartment explaining it all (we just wanted to change and rest up). Overall apartment was clean, just hard to go up & down stairs all the time. Location was great, close to everything you need.
The strongest point about this property is the location. Using the subway, in less than 10 minutes you can be at the city centre. It is also important to mention how clean it was and how friendly Jordi (the person who welcomed us to the property) was. You get exactly what you paid for. As there is always room for improvement, it is important to get a bigger shower curtain. Will stay there again
Toni and David greeted us at the airport and were extremely patient with us whilst we took our time to decide whether to rent a car or bikes. Toni even called the rent a bike shop and made all the arrangements. When we arrived at the house he showed us around and also advised us on places to visit in Menorca.
The house is lovely. A peaceful quiet place in the middle of the countryside. The owner and all the family, who live in a separate part of the house, are extremely kind and respected our privacy whilst always being available to help and always ready for a chat. The 12-year-old sweet Carlotta also speaks English! We used the brand new swimming pool and BBQ. We also had fresh eggs from the chickens! Thank you for a lovely stay.
Location was great - nearby we could find good restaurants and bars. Shops and markets were also close. Rambla was about 15 minutes walk and we would recommend visiting the Font Màgica de Montjuïc which is close. The show at the fountain was amazing.
With the help and advice of Jordi we could find and know all that´s necessary in Barcelona. Thank you!
Flat was big enough for 4 adults. Rooms were tidy and clean. Only thing missing was air conditioner - that would be our improvement suggestion to the owner. Prepare to walk some stairs before reaching the flat - no elevator in the building.
All in all - we had a great vacation in Barcelona :)
Our stay was fabulous in every aspect from arrival Jaime put us in touch with a taxi driver with which we had no problem getting and then we received Jordi, which is great, I explain to us where we could go, the sites most important and how to move, finally, our reception could not have been better. The apartment, on our part, we did not find any problems.
Certainly, to repeat and recommend.
Nuestra estancia ha sido fabulosa en todos los aspectos, desde nuestra llegada Jaime nos puso en contacto con un taxista con lo cual no tuvimos ningún problema para llegar y después nos recibió Jordi, que es genial, nos explico donde podíamos ir, los sitios mas importantes y como desplazarnos, en fin, nuestro recibimiento no podía haber sido mejor. El apartamento, por nuestra parte, no encontramos ningún inconveniente.
Sin duda, para repetir y recomendar.
Very good location, in perfect condition and very attentive Jaime. Keep in mind not to pay for the city tax.
Muy buena ubicación, en perfecto estado y Jaime muy atento. Tener en cuenta que no hay que pagar por la tasa turística.
It is conveniently located: 3 min walking to the Metro, about 20 min to the Old Town.
It was clean, with fresh bed sheets and bath towels.
Jordi, who showed us the apartment, was helpful enough.
The garage is on the opposite side of the street and there was no lift in the building: we had to drag our luggage across the street, then up the very narrow stairs to the third floor - almost impossible task if you have large suitcases.
There are two TINY rooms, one with a twin bed and a chair, the other with twin bunk beds and a chair. Once you put your luggage there you barely have room to turn around. The mattresses were old, crumpled and uncomfortable.
The third "bedroom" was actually a sofa bed or a futon tucked in one nook of the very small and crammed living room. No privacy whatsoever! No place to sit down either because the small sofa was the only place to put your suitcases.
The apartment is sorely and inexcusably lacking closet space. The only closet was next to the kitchen and was 50 cm wide: enough for about four jackets. There are no even hooks for clothes anywhere.
The dining table was jammed behind the entrance door, scarcely enough for four people, two of them squeezed in the back.
In the bathroom there was something wrong with the boiler: taking showers came down to choosing alternating bursts of scalding or, most of the time, icy cold water. Also the sink's drain was clogged. There was no hand soap or a soap bar. There were only two hand/face towels in the bathroom (one per family). The space is so small that when using the toilet, your face is directly over the bidet.
In the kitchen there was room for one person only and even she had to move sideways. There were no instructions how to use the appliances. Many small necessities like bottle openers or clothes pins were missing. The knives were very dull. Because there were not enough power outlets, or at least a multi plug power strip, the washer and the microwave could not be used simultaneously.
This tight apartment would be probably OK for a couple or a young family with 1-2 small children, but is absolutely unacceptable for four adults, as it was advertised.
1 star for apartment position and for Jordi.
Location is great. Not far from Passaig de Gracia. The nearest metro station is quickly reachable on foot. House is in a quiet area. Just around the corner is a super clam restaurant. highly recommended. Supermarket just around the corner. Apartment is large and spacious. Beds were comfortable. Everything you could possibly need. Walls could once again a paint job but that does not detract from the whole. Communication was great. Jaime is a nice host who explained us the complete environment. it was not our last time in Barcelona :)
Lage ist super. Nicht weit vom Passaig de Gracia. Die nächste Metro Station ist schnell zu Fuß zu erreichen. Haus ist in einer ruhigen Gegend. Direkt um die Ecke ist ein super Muschel Restaurant. nur zu empfehlen. Supermarkt direkt um die Ecke. Wohnung ist groß und geräumig. Betten waren bequem. Alles da was man so braucht. Wände könnten mal wieder einen Anstrich vertragen aber das tut dem ganzen keinen Abbruch. Kommunikation war auch super. Jaime ist ein netter Gastgeber der uns die komplette Umgebung erklärt hat. es war nicht unser letztes Mal in Barcelona :)
