About Jackie and Gary Watson
We are Gary and Jackie Watson and we live in England with our Shih Tzu puppy Benni. Gary works for a reputable high street store and until May 2010 I worked as a PA but took the decision to leave work to become a full-time carer for my mum who had Alzheimer's. We absolutely love our relaxing holidays in Spain, just keep coming back time and time again. We have part owned an apartment in Arenal d'en Castell but have always aimed to purchase a property of our own and in 2009 our aim was achieved with this apartment. We have always found Spain a very welcoming and friendly place both as holiday makers and as owners.
Jackie and Gary Watson purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Jackie and Gary Watson chose Arenal d'en Castell
Apart from the fact that everyone in Arenal d'en Castell has made us feel really welcome there are also the many facilities nearby including the beautiful award winning horse shoe bay. There are lovely little villages only a walk away or travel by the small road 'choo choo' train. If you wish to venture further only 20 minutes away by car is the beautiful port of Mahon and then the whole island to see. There really is something for everyone. The apartment is only 25 minutes away by car/taxi from Mahon airport.
What makes this Apartment unique
The property is set in beautiful private landscaped gardens with two pools, sun loungers and sea views. All linen is provided together with Hauck travel cot which includes a bassinette and changing area for baby, baby bath, high chair and child gate. To help you enjoy a travel light holiday we also provide at the beginning of the season parasols, air beds, inflatable rings etc and also toys for the children, bearing in mind that items may be added to or taken away due to wear and tear. We have included in the rental a welcome pack to make your holiday that little bit special. Also to allow you to free up some luggage space we provide, for the length of your stay, 100% cotton beach towels (5' x 3') at a cost of £5 per towel. Within the apartment there is a visitors book and we would very much appreciate any comments you may have.

Spent a week here with a friend. Enjoyable stay. Didn’t get to the beach as too many steps because I was on crutches after an op but was told beach is lovely.
Pool was fabulous, not crowded and plenty of sunbeds and shady areas.
Supermarket in same small road which was invaluable.
Hosts good communication throughout.

Clean comfortable and well positioned.
Excellent position for the supermarket and the bus stop. Easy walks to the restaurants and the beach. Attractive,well kept gardens and swimming pool.Nice view towards the sea. Not the largest apartment we have stayed in but probably one of the best equipped. We felt very much at home here.
Great place to stay!
No need for a car as there are great restaurants, beautiful beach and handy shop on the doorstep. It was a bit hot at night without aircon but the fans did help
Stayed 5 times now and it has become a home from home. Don't even take suitcases any more as no need with washing machine. We were on beach an hour after landing. Lovely pool and gardens. Gary and Jackie always very friendly and helpful. Will be back again soon.
The apartment is a few minutes stroll away from the beautiful gently shelving beach of Arenal D'en Castell, with clear shallow water, just perfect for children. There are bar cafes, restaurants, and supermarkets within minutes walk. You can discover the more well known places on the island, Fornells, we visit every time we are in Menorca, small but beautiful, you can shop, have a meal or just sit in a cafe and watch the world go by. Es Castell is another favourite of ours with its lovely waterside restaurants and cafe/bars. Mercadal and Alaior are typical Spanish towns and the streets on a Friday or Saturday evening are filled with people and chatter as the Spanish enjoy their weekend. Perfect.
The resort of Arenal d'en Castell is approximately 25 minutes by car from the airport. Car hire is not necessarily essential as there are various shops, bars, restaurants, together with numerous activities for children within Arenal d'en Castell, but Menorca is a beautiful island well worth viewing should you be wanting to hire a car. There is also a very good bus service which runs very near to the apartment to various places on the island if you aren't wanting to drive.
The Port of Mahon is approximately 20 minute drive away with its many shops, bars and restaurants.
A small train drives around the resort of Arenal d'en Castell and visits the neighbouring village of Macaret which has a small but lovely beach.
