About Nick and Jess Broad

This is a family owned apartment and we first visited Cala'n Porter in 1997 when our children were 6, 7 and 9 years old. Cala'n Porter offered us everything we needed as a family. With our eldest now in his late-twenties, we all still enjoy visiting the apartment with family and friends. It really is the ideal place for any age to relax in the sunshine.

My eldest daughter Jess looks after the bookings and will be able to help you with any questions you have about your stay.

Nick and Jess Broad purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Nick and Jess Broad chose Alaior

We bought our apartment after enjoying so many holidays in Siesta Mar 1. With the apartment only being 15 minutes from Mahon airport and only a two hour flight from London the journey was really easy with young children. The beach has always been a big draw, the steps option has 180 steps (which was always a bit of a competition) so we always liked to walk down and take the road up. The locals make you feel very welcome and the restaurant staff speak perfect English and are very attentive. During peak time, there is entertainment in the evenings at the restaurant ‘Sa Paissa’ which is always enjoyable for all.

What makes this apartment unique

The location is definitely the best part about the apartment. When our children were young, the back balcony allowed us to let them go to the pool and we could watch them while they played. The front balcony has a sea view and the sun until late into the evening - the sun sets are beautiful! The apartment has the extra security of being on the first floor and being on the corner has the benefit of additional windows in the living area and the second bedroom making it light and airy.

Lovely property, perfect position.

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a wonderful family holiday with our 2yr old and and 4yr old. The apartment was excellent with nothing to fault. Nice and peaceful, with great views of the sunset to the front, lovely to sit on the balcony with a glass or two after the nippers were in bed. It was very comfortable to stay in and it's position was spot on. 5 mins walk to the beach steps, supermarket and restaurants. Good size pool outside and a couple of minutes walk to the Siesta Mar 2 pools and water slides which our eldest 'dragged' me on daily. To echo previous reviews, the owners, Nick & Jess were a pleasure to deal with, very helpful and kept in good contact. Martin, the local manager was also on hand and very helpful. Great property and our best holiday in years, we would love to return.

Clean & tidy apartment

  • 4 of 5

Well positioned first floor apartment with lovely sunny balconies, a view of the sea in the distance on one side & pool from the other. Beautiful gardens with clean pool, quiet too. Apartment block a short walk to local restaurants & shops in Cala n Porter. Easy access to the beach but not so easy on the return journey with all those steps!

Amazing !

  • 5 of 5

Being the first time we had booked via Owners Direct, we were naturally anxious about what we’d get... We knew the resort from having stayed there 4 years ago. That time we had booked with Siesta Mar complex and had a nice flat but not very basically equipped.

So, as we knew the resort, we wanted the same type of flat, better situated and equipped. Well, this was absolutely perfect. The flat is lovely, very well kitted out and immaculate. With sea views to Mallorca on the main balcony/terrace, pool view on the other side and bedrooms on the quiet side, it was wonderful. It is not overlooked by any other flat so really private.

The owners were very helpful. We haven’t actually spoken to each other but were in regular contact by e-mail. Their contact/Manager in Menorca was also great. We needed some extra sheets and within a couple of hours from my text, he was around at the flat.

Another concern was that there were only 2 comments on Owners Direct when we booked... I have now decided that it must be because people don’t want to publicise their amazing stay in case it gets so popular that it becomes difficult to book.

Will definitely recommend to friends and family.

PS: as another guest has mentioned in her review – my husband also commented that there were the best towels ever !!!

Return to Siesta Mar

  • 4 of 5

Great little 2 bedroom apartment in Siesta Mar 1. Fantastic views from the front balcony out towards the sea and from the back balcony over the pool. We would certainly use this apartment again and Jess and Nick were terrific to deal with. Best food we had during our stay was at the Castle Restaurant and at 16.95 per person for 3 courses including wine!!
