About James & Jeannie Seekings
First visited Calan Porter in 2003, have been twice a year every year since. We have 6 children & 8 grandchildren, who all love Menorca, as it caters for all ages. We love the island, not only because of all the beautiful beaches, places to explore, the friendliness of the local people, also the short flight from UK and only 15 minutes transfer from the airport makes the island a fantastic holiday location.
James & Jeannie Seekings purchased this Apartment in 2017
Why James & Jeannie Seekings chose Alaior
We had been looking for a property on this complex for a few years, luckily we found not only a spacious apartment with 3 bedrooms on the first floor but also a 1 bedroom on the second floor, both on the same stairwell (great for families with grand parents & other family members to stay in) both have a lockable gate to the balconies for safety & privacy. Both having stunning views & overlooking the 3 pools.
What makes this Apartment unique
The benefits are over looking the pools from the front balcony (the balcony has a lockable gate for safety & privacy), over looking the pools & gardens with sea view, central location to resort, 15 minutes from the airport, safe beautiful beach, the stunning Cova d'en Xoroi just 10 minutes walk away, all in all an excellent location! Free WiFi & TV.

Perfect little getaway.
What an amazing little apartment, we truly enjoyed our stay here. From the excellent communication beforehand, through to the reasonable check out time when we left, everything went smoothly.
The apartment itself is perfectly located directly over the stunning pool so I could keep an eye on my 10 and 6 year olds. You could also get a great viewpoint of the sunbed battles of an early morning, even though there were always plenty available when it opened at 10. All of the bedrooms are exceptionally comfortable; however the twin room does not have any power outlets that we could see. The rainforest shower is a godsend! It was lovely, and even though my kids both prefer baths, they soon learned to appreciate it too. We couldn't get the Kodi box to work and the internet based TV was only as good as the WiFi signal which tended to drop out quite regularly, but it didn't bother us in the slightest because it gave us the chance to play cards and boardgames as a family on the balcony.
The poolside bar served nice enough snacks and drinks, but could never remember to put bacon in our burgers, but the friendliness of the staff more than made up for it.
The location of the apartment complex was superb, with a plethora of restaurants and supermarkets within a 400m radius. They are as expensive as you would expect a resort location to be, but as a family of 5 we ate really well and indulged in the nearby Italian Gelato and pancake and waffle parlour on 90 Euros a day.
If I didn't have the kids here, I would have hired the car and gone exploring the island and attended a few of the many fiestas about Menorca. That said, the walk to the beach is breathtaking; the view from the top of the 180 steps down to the cove is brilliant. You can be from apartment to beach in less than 10 minutes, and if the stairs are too daunting, the road back only adds about 5 minutes onto the journey.
All in all a perfect kids' holiday, but I would definitely holiday here just as a couple too.
We had a fantastic holiday at your apartment !

Could not have asked for better
3 adults and a 2 year toddler stayed for one wonderful week mid June 2018. A perfectly located spacious well equipped apartment that was ideal for our needs. A lovely big balcony over looking the three pools is ideal for outside family meals. The child safety/privacy door on the balcony is a great addition and makes a real reassuring difference when you have an active toddler. The resort bar is good though I can’t comment on the food other than a pizza on the first night that was ok. Very close to a sizeable supermarket. Easy walking distance to many restaurants all of which warmly welcome children. The 100+ stairs down to (and up from!) probably the best family beach we’ve been on are close by. A short distance farther is the easier road down with pavements on both sides. Pushed the laden buggy up once and lived but wisely took the wee train on other occasions. The service bus into Mahon stops close by and the 1.70 euro trip is well worth it as Mahon is a very nice little city.
Overall, we could not have asked for a better place to stay for our first, but I doubt last, trip to Menorca. Very, very happy.
Dear guests, thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay at 2J's. We try our utmost to make sure our guests have all they require & have a wonderful holiday. We are so in love with this beautiful island & it is a pleasure when guests enjoy their stay. We hope to welcome you back soon! Regards Jimmy & Jeannie
Excellent apartment and location
We visited the property for a week in July, its good well equipped accommodation, very comfortable. The beach is a stones throw from the apartment, very beautiful, water is so clear you can see the fish swimming around your feet, great for snorkaling. The pool faciities within the complex are very good. I would recommend hiring a car though as the local supermarkets are a bit pricey. There are larger supermarkets close by but not within walking distance. We visited the splash sur menorca which was much fun. Grreat place and accommodation
Thank you for your review. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay at our apartment & enjoyed your holiday. Calan Porter beach, I agree is beautiful..
The beach is 10 minutes walk away gaining access by the steps or a few minutes in a car gaining access by road. The road way also has a pathway.
The beach is set in a beautiful cove with bars, restaurants, shop and public WC.
There are water sport activities to hire also sunbeds & parasols.
The cove is surrounded by country side, mountains & Villas with beautiful views.
The islands main airport, Mahon, is a 15 minute drive. Taxis are always available costing from 18-20 euros. Car hire is not essential but would be recommended to take in the full beauty of the island.
The centre of Cala'n Porter is a few minutes from the apartment, numerous bars, restaurants, supermarkets and cash machines. There are several play areas for children in the village. The village of Sant Climent is a 5 min drive where you will find shops, bars, banking facilities and the famous casino bar jazz club. The beautiful capital Mahon town centre and Port area is a 15 min drive. A bus service is also available. There are many shops & good restaurants by the harbour with lovely views.
The Island is linked from Mahon to Cuitedella by one main road across the island. Most resorts are served from this main road making navigation to most places relatively straight forward. The island has many small coves, beaches to explore. Small boats can be hired from many locations to get to those only reached from the sea.
