The fun and exciting, all-inclusive resort of TUI's Holiday Village in Menorca's Cala'n Bosch area is an ideal holiday resort for all the family in 2020. Also known as the Grupotel Club Turquesa Mar, there are heaps of activities to keep the kids occupied, no matter the age, and with them kept busy, adults can enjoy a more relaxing getaway, plus with it being an all-inclusive hotel, you don't have to worry about paying for any extras, it's all included.
There are four swimming pools to start, including an indoor one, for if your holiday weather doesn't quite go as planned, plus a quiet pool for those looking for a bit more relaxation. The kids pool also has a couple of slides and activities too. As with all First Choice Holiday Village locations, it has a kids club running from 1st May to 31st October, perfect for keeping the kids occupied. The clubs splits into age groups (3-5 years, 6-8 years and 9-11 years).
Most activities are free of charge such as the climbing wall, children's playground and the general activity programme during the day, however, there are one or two that do cost a little extra and can be booked in resort, such as Football Academy, Swim Academy and Stage Academy.
As evening comes around, you can choose from three restaurants (two of which can only be visited once a week), however, the buffet restaurant features theme nights and Sunday roasts to allow for lots of variation each day. There's even a special kids buffet section, another great reason to choose Holiday Village in Cala'n Bosch, just one of First Choice Holiday's all-inclusive resorts in Menorca. Why not end the evening enjoying the shows put on by the resort entertainment team.
The distance from Menorca airport to the Holiday Village Menorca is around 55km or a 90 minute coach transfer as the resort is pretty much on the other side of the island to the airport. However, that does mean it's just 500m to the cute Son Xoriguer and Cala'n Bosch beaches nearby. Check out the latest photos and videos online to see more of what's on offer.
There are two room types at the resort, twin rooms and apartments, available to book either directly on the Grupotel hotel website or as part of a package holiday with First Choice or TUI. A small selection of reduced mobility apartments are also available. Please note there although the 1 bedroom apartments have a small fitted kitchen, the hotel is all-inclusive, so you cannot book self-catering. There is a tourist tax of €3.30 per person per day to be paid at the hotel.
Twin rooms sleep up to 2 adults and offer either a balcony or terrace and include air conditioning and satellite TV as standard.

Otherwise you can book a package holiday via TUI or First Choice. Due to exclusivity, you aren't likely to be able to book through other tour operators like Jet2 Holidays, On The Beach, Love Holidays or Thomas Cook.
