There is a beautifully landscaped pool area and gardens on the complex. A second, much quieter pool is also available for guests to use, in the neighbouring Siesta Mar 1 complex.

The recent addition of security gates at all public entrances to Siesta Mar, means that only guests staying in one of the complexes apartments will have access to the swimming pools, sunbeds, bar and restaurant facilities, creating more of an exclusive environment.

There are many different restaurants and bars to choose from in the village, which are a short stroll away.

There are two late opening supermarkets within a two-minute walk, that stock a large range of fresh food, groceries, beers, wines and spirits and both have bakeries, baking fresh bread throughout the day.

About Keith Durrant

I'm from the midlands and I work at Birmingham Airport.

I bought the apartment in 2013 and have been investing in it by upgrading the interior over the last few years. I like to treat it as a home from home and hope that my guests appreciate it.

Keith Durrant purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Keith Durrant chose Alaior

I love Menorca and in particular all of the south coast resorts. It is very uncommercialised, the locals are very friendly and I like the laid back atmosphere wherever you go.

Cala en Porter is a lovely little resort, with everything you need close to hand, a great place to chill out and get away from it all.

The apartment is named after my Mom, Jean Irene. She loved Menorca and we spent many a happy holiday there and have stayed all over the island over the last 30 years.

Everyone I know who visits the island seems to instantly take a liking to it, as although it is Spanish, it still has an English feel to it, maybe due to the fact that it was ruled by the English several times in it's long history. Proof of which you will see in the architecture of both Mahon and the old capital Ciutadella.

What makes this apartment unique

There is lots to do and see in the local area, a beautiful beach, lovely communal gardens and pools to enjoy.

The property is compact, however has all of the facilities and comforts that you would expect and need on a family holiday, without feeling cramped.

The large south facing terrace is ideal for sun worshippers, however a large parasol offers welcome relief for those who prefer to sit in the shade.

Enjoy the air conditioning in the evening, always makes sleepless nights, due to the heat, a thing of the past.

A lovely modern, well presented interior and some little luxuries, like a rainforest shower, brand new fitted kitchen, wireless speaker system and more, all await you at San Jean Irene.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely apartment, we loved it so much, we will be coming again next year and we'd also like to book it as a wedding gift for our Son and Daughter in law, who are getting married in 2017.

Absolutely lovely.

  • 5 of 5

San Jean Irene apartment is the nicest one we have ever stayed in.

Everything you could want on holiday is there. The balcony is amazing, especially the loungers and we loved being able to sit outside in the sun or in the shade. We had one wet afternoon but the dvd's saved the day. Thank you for renting us your apartment Keith.

Best regards Janet and Joe.

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic apartment, they have perfectly blended a boutique style with all the comforts of home. All the fixtures and fittings are of a very high standard, the whole apartment was immaculately clean and we treated it with the respect it deserves so that the next clients can have the same wonderful experience that we had. This was our 7th visit to Menorca and once again it has not disappointed us.

Perfect holiday retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is exactly as described and very well equipped. The standard of fixtures and fittings is good and the layout is really well designed. The apartment is small but is plenty big enough for 2 people. There is a really helpful welcome pack which includes details of the apartment and resort such as restaurant recommendations etc. Highly recommended.

We visited for the first two weeks of September when the complex was fairly quiet. There are plenty of sunbeds around the pool area which is well maintained. The pool is shaded and has 3 distinct areas so suitable for all ages.
