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.

Location

Coast/Beach:

Cala'n Porter has a white sand beach set in a horse shoe shaped cove. The beach is approximately 10 minutes away and is reached either by road or steps. The beach strip is well equipped with toilets, shops, restaurants and bars and the beach itself has rentable sun loungers and pedaloes

Travel:

Mahon airport is approximately 15 minutes by car/taxi. The capital, Mahon is approximately 25 minutes away by car and there is a regular and reliable (air conditioned) bus service. The bus stop is only a few minutes’ walk from the apartment. If you wish to see all the sights Menorca has to offer then we recommend hiring a car.

Distances:

Cala'n Porter town centre is a 2 minute walk away with supermarkets, shops, restaurants, bars, cashpoint and pharmacy

Further Details:

Cala'n Porter is well known for its famous Cova dén Xoroi nightclub, built into the cliff face, which is a short walk from the apartment. We recommend visiting this attraction during the day to take in the caves surroundings and spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea

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.

Nice apartment.

  • 4 of 5

A good sized apartment with more than adequate outsize space. The kitchen is compact but enough for what we needed. Good security and quiet location. Great position for bars and restaurants.

Comfy beds and plenty of towels.

We had a great stay and for the price it was good value for money. Thanks Jess and Nick.

Ideally located family accomodation

  • 4 of 5

We (family of four with 7 and 9 year olds) had a lovely week long stay stay in this apartment. The owners and management company seem very keen to make the arrangements as flexible and user friendly as they can. We were thrilled to be able to drop off our luggage not long after our 11 am arrival and check out the pools. The appartment was perfectly clean. Perhaps a little old fashioned in styling but that was a relief to us with messy kids. No air con but wasn't missed by us as the appartment benefits from clever positioning and was easy to keep naturally cool even in height of August. Lovely balcony for sundowners. Great proximity to the gorgeous beach and village amenities. We only needed to call on the manager once but he was prompt and good humoured even early on Sunday morning!

Would recommend this as perfect base for families (as long as all able bodied!) Shout out to the Aloha Bar for great cocktails and welcome for all ages.

Well located, clean and tidy apartment

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is a little dated but was well presented, clean, had comfy beds and all that you would need for a great holiday. Siesta Mar apartments are very well located close to the beach, restaurants, and supermarket. The loungers to take to the pool were a godsend. The balconies both had great outlooks, great for enjoying an evening drink. We all had a fabulous holiday, the kids are already trying to arrange their 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!
