"A great resort and a great hotel. We don't have any children so went on a Thomson Gold..."

A great resort and a great hotel. We don't have any children so went on a Thomson Gold holiday. The service was excellent by both hotel staff and Thomson Reps. Nothing was too much trouble and there were plenty of activities if you wanted to join in, though we weren't made to feel we had to.

The only downside was that the pool appeared small in comparison to the hotel and on certain days sunbeds were hard to find. That said, the beach was fabulous and within easy walking distance to the hotel, though people with disabilities may have some difficulties as the hotel is high on a hill.

I would recommend this holiday to anyone who is looking for real peace and quiet in a quiet resort.

"What a simply stunning hotel in every way, although being on a hill probably not suitable..."

What a simply stunning hotel in every way, although being on a hill probably not suitable for disabled or infirmed, or anyone not fit enough to climb, but worth the slight inconvenience.

The resort is classy, and yes peaceful, but oh so relaxing, what a great break, and no little ones around highly recommended for the more mature ones, although not sedentary at all.

Great music in the evening from resident band SAXUALITY, two very attractive 'gals' one with a belter of a voice,the other with a fantastic range on the 'Sax' greeat variation of music, excellent hotel sound and lights system.

Lovely pool area, great service, and the superior rooms, just outstanding, with a Jacuzzi bath, don't put too much gell in prior to switching on, its very foamy indeed. GO THERE ITS JUST FABULOUS, WELL DONE THOMSONS..

First visit to Menorca,hotel and location brilliant, will go again, staff very helpful and pleasant.

Resort beautiful and very clean. Only problems we had were the lack of sunbeds people getting up early to put their towels on ie 6am, also the price of the all inclusive 15 or 25 euro per day per person. We also found hire of safe to be expensive 42 euros for 11 nights.

Food was very good throughout our holiday and always hot. Entertainment in the evenings was very good with top comedians and singers.

We went to Fiesta Castell Playa on opening week so everything brand new including some of the staff. Resort was quiet but very clean. A lot of steps to shops/beach but courtesy bus runs a few times a day.

Food excellent. Opted for the Fiesta all inc package which we have done at other Fiesta hotels, there are different categories we had the basic 15 euros free drinks plan. You can have a loyalty card from hotel and collect points at diff fiestas.

Pool area clean if a little crowded, might be a problem in peak season but staff were happy to bring out extra sunbeds as needed.

Bar staff great especially Jesus who saved me many times by bringing a hair of the dog.

As mentioned by others the lifts were very slow so try not to book a high floor.

Had a lovely relaxing 10 days. Weather warm. But very windy (force 13 apparently on the Tuesday night.
Daytime entertainment in hotel excellent. Rep Andy deserves comendation, credit to entertainment team.
Resort a little lacking in life, but very pretty bay and very clean resort. Some absolutly stunning views. Only draw back for us is the gradient from hotel to beach. We live in a hilly little town, but Arenal Den Castell is above and beyond this.

Very pleasant, relaxing holiday. An adult only hotel which made it very peaceful - no children splashing in the pool! All inclusive drinks option very good and certainly worth having.

An excellent holiday. The hotel is very clean although looking a little dated on the decor now. Cannot fault the food - as much as you like with excellent choice. Evening entertainment was better than we have experienced elsewhere. With this being a Thomson Gold hotel of course no kids - great! Very helpful staff. Pool area spoilt by only having sunbeds with no chairs/loungers and no shade if you cannot get a brolly. Beach clean and tidy and hotel courtesy bus saves you trudging up and down the hill. Would stay here again. (Halifax)

"A great Thomson GOLD hotel. Just spent a week here and it was excellent. Very peaceful,..."

A great Thomson GOLD hotel. Just spent a week here and it was excellent. Very peaceful, relaxing holiday. Had a standard room with seaview. If you like morning sun then pick a seaview room, if you like sun on your balcony in the afternoon / evening then go for a room with a poolview on the back of the hotel. Be aware though rooms on the back will also overlook the outside entertainments stage - great if you fancy watching the entertainment from your balcony - not so good if you fancy a quiet early night. This last week ( end of May ) entertainments in the evening were all held inside in the upstairs bar / entertainment area rather than outside anyway.
Resort was really quiet in the evening - come 11.30pm when the outside entertainment at the other large hotel in Arenal finished it was almost silent. Relatively good sound insulation in the rooms meant not a lot was heard from within the hotel, beds were very comfortable so some excellent nights sleep. Our standard room was directly over the restaurant which initially worried us - needlessly it turns out as we didn't hear a thing from it.

Food was good quality. The cold buffet though lacked much variety over the week. Each night a speciality table was changed. Favourite night was 'puddings' night, least favourite was 'sliced cold sausages' night! In between was seafood, cheese, and fruit nights that I remember. Hot buffet always delicious.

Pool area felt a little cramped when filled though terraces do extend up a couple of levels with more sunbathing space. I was amazed when getting up early on the last day to get flight home to find towels already out on the best sunbeds before 7am - and with only Brits in the hotel the Germans couldn't be blamed for it!

Hotel is 'King of the Hill' in Arenal so the walk down to the beach is all sloping roads or steps. Roads though were almost empty, and the steps went past the shops so walk was pleasant enough and didn't feel a chore.

Arenal may be relatively small and quiet but it's not lacking for any necessities. There may only be one road in and out - but that means no through traffic so very peaceful. There are atleast 5 supermarkets easily walked to in Arenal. Cafe's and bars serving food atleast a dozen or more, plus various other shops and giftshops dotted about.

Area is great for walking. It's a pleasure to be able to walk to either of the neighbouring bays via clifftop paths. The Thomson Gold Local Interest Rep will take you on these walks, but they are easy enough to find for yourself.

Loved Menorca, loved Arenal D'en Castell. From the moment we arrived at Mhon airport everyone was very helpful and friendly. A very relaxed holiday.

We went on this holiday for a bit of rest and relaxation and we got it. Gieven the price of his Hotel- just about the cheapest Gold Hotel on the Thomson listings the quality of the food was excellent, the staff superb and extremely clean everywhere. The beach was quiet at this time of year- sea very warm, immaculately clean sand and water- just about the best resort beach on the island. The rroms are looking a little tired but still immaculately clean and servicable. The restaurant felt a bit crowded at times but again- excellent food qhuality and choice. Good location for most of the island with excellent roads, nowhere more than 30-40 mins drive. Little in the resort if you want to go out for an evening as there is no 'Town' as such- but it makes for a very enjoyable and peaceful place- we have booked again for next year- soemthing we never do!

"We've just returned from 1 week and were glad that we had only gone for 1 week. We did..."

We've just returned from 1 week and were glad that we had only gone for 1 week. We did enjoy a very quiet week, mainly because there wasn't anything to do.
We were prepared for a down hill walk to the beach, but not 200 steps. There were ramps but I wouldn't like to push a pushchair down, never mind a wheelchair!
Maybe the resort had not got into full swing, there were quite a few bars open, but no atmosphere anywhere, other than the Irish bar. You need to get there fairly early if you want a seat though.

Other than a pretty bay - 30 to 40 mins walk, and a self catering estate also 30 to 40 mins walk, there's nothing unless you want to hire a car.

The weather was fairly good, a bit chilly in the evening, the pool hadn't warmed up enough for me although there were some less wimpy than me who said it was fine!!

The sauna and jacuzzi weren't operational, neither was the hairdresser, but the entertainment crew were brilliant, the best we've come across.

THIS HOTEL WAS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL, THE CLEANLINESS AND FOOD WAS FANTASTIC. WOULD RECOMMEND MOST DEFINATELY. MUST ADMIT THERE IS QUITE A TREK DOWNHILL TO THE BEACH, HOWEVER THE HOTEL DOES OPERATE A BUS SERVICE IF YOU CHOOSE TO USE IT. THE THOMSON GOLD STAFF WERE GREAT AND FRIENDLY, THE GOLD HOSTS WERE VERY TALENTED AND THEIR SINGING TALENTS SHOULD BE USED MORE THAN THEY WERE. THE RESIDENT DUO WERE OK THEY PLAYED 6 NIGHTS A WEEK, DID 2 LINE DANCES EVERY NIGHT BUT A LITTLE MORE VARIETY ON THESE DANCES WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER. THE ISLAND IS BEAUTIFUL, THIS ISLAND IS MUCH MORE FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE LOOKING FOR A QUIET HOLIDAY RATHER THAN A BOISTEROUS HOLIDAY, WE FOUND PLENTY TO DO FOR WHAT WE WANTED. OVERALL AN EXCELLENT HOLIDAY AND VALUE FOR MONEY.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday, and wished that we were staying for two weeks and not one.
The food was excellent and there was great choice.
We stayed in a superior room which was well worth the few extra pounds as we had fresh fruit and flowers, wine, bathrobes and slippers in our room, and there was a lovely view over the bay.
An excellent hotel overall and we will definately be going back.
Only a couple of complaints - not much to do in the town, but we were fine staying in the hotel anyway. And the resident group that played before the proper entertainment were not the best!!

A really enjoyable holiday in this Thomson Gold hotel. Staff friendly, courteous and efficient. Variety and presentation of well cooked food was a delight. Outdoor evening entertainment was mostly of a very high standard. Thomson holiday reps. were very helpful and friendly...good choice of excursions. The only down side was the uphill trek from the beach, although a courtesy minibus was available.
Altogether a lovely holiday experience on this beautiful island, and one which I would have no hesitation in recommending.
