Re: It’s quiet around here

I think business owners in the resort, and probably across the whole island, are feeling unsettled following the collapse of Thomas Cook and the uncertainty of Brexit that keeps rumbling on, and on..... :mad: and it's a possibility there may be some changes afoot next year :???: Apparently this will...

Re: What’s changed in 15 years?

No problem! :grin: To be honest, the parking situation should be fine if you avoid July and August. Although parking at Cala Galdana seems to be dicey most of the year, for some reason, but I don't think you should have a problem at the other Southern beach resorts. And you can navigate through Ciut...

Re: What’s changed in 15 years?

Hi Evasmum Not sure what resort/town you used to stay in, but there have been a few changes over the last 15 years, some good, others not so :eek: In general, there are far more good places to eat these days, with a much wider selection of cuisines. I remember my first visit, about 25 years ago, whe...

Re: Off-Shore Inflatable Thingy

The banana boat was well and truly whizzing along the shore of Son Bou beach when we were there earlier this month, so the killjoys have obviously relented somewhat! :smile:

Re: Christmas festivities

There’s always something going on, but generally the ajuntaments don’t publish details until nearer the time. All towns have their own council (ajuntament) website with a diary of events by date (although you may have to use Google translate to work out what’s happening). http://www.alaior.org/agend...

Re: Sad news today

Yes, very sad news. :sad: You do have to be careful when driving on Menorca, as many locals walk out onto pedestrian crossings without even looking. I believe pedestrians are given more priority over traffic than in the UK, so we always slow down and keep 'em peeled whenever there's a crossing, beca...

Re: Which resort?????

Hi If you like woods and lovely views I'd recommend somewhere near Cala Galdana, as you can walk along the Cami De Cavalls along the coast/through the woods to Cala Macarella/Macarelleta, Mitjana, Turqueta, which are some of the most picturesque coves on the island (and Galdana is also very pretty t...

Re: IPTV Boxes - are they still a thing?

Hi Corsario We have Sky at home, so used to get all the channels free in Menorca through a satellite dish on the apartment roof, with an old Sky box and viewing card; until the UK satellites died a few years ago :sad: So, it was either try and get the UK folk in our block to club together for a new ...

Re: IPTV Boxes - are they still a thing?

Hi Kieron He did eventually email me with details of the package, after we'd been to Mervi and bought their box. However, the only deal he runs now costs 20 Euros per month, plus 165 Euros for the box, so ultimately we're better off paying 60 Euros for the year, as our holidays quite often cross ove...
