About Chris & Jack Cole

We live in Essex, have a son & a daughter and are semi-retired. We have been going to Menorca since 1983. We have made many friends over the years and always look forward to spending our holidays there.

Chris & Jack Cole purchased this apartment in 1980

Why Chris & Jack Cole chose Es Mercadal

We fell in love with the island and never tire from going back time after time. The local people are very friendly and welcoming. We like to take advantage of the lovely walks on the island and the slow pace of life as it is a complete contrast to the area we live in the UK.

What makes this apartment unique

Our property is ideal for families and couples alike. It is convenient for the shops, restaurants and of course that lovely beach! For those keen golfers the local course is 15 mins away by car.

Rooms with a view

  • 5 of 5

There cannot be many apartments that can match the view from Chris and Jack's terrace. It was a joy to sit there with binoculars watching the boats sailing in and out of the sheltered bay of Arenal. The sandy shore is clean with shallow very clear water making for good snorkelling by the rocks at either side of the bay.

There is an adequate supermarket only two minutes walk from the apartment, and several restaurants close by. The one we used most was the Copas whose red roof you can see by the shore when looking down from the terrace.

The apartment area though, in spite of being so close to amenities is surprisingly quiet, so a lot of the time the only sound is that of the waves on the sand.

Parking is easy, there was always enough space in the parking bays on the road that runs behind and above the apartment complex.

Access to the beach is by flights of steps, but if you have impaired mobility it is only a two minute drive to beach level parking below the apartment, or at the eastern end of the bay.

The apartment is comfortably furnished; we found that after a hard day's sightseeing, sunbathing, eating and drinking, it was a pleasure to relax on a sofa each, and watch our favourite English television shows.

The kitchen is modern, well equipped, and all areas of the apartment are well maintained

No need to bring guide books, there is a good selection together with a collection of fiction.

Finally, the booking process was easy. Chris and Jack were always available to answer any query, and returned calls promptly.

Beautiful apartment, beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

The best thing about this lovely apartment is the simply amazing view! It was honestly hard for us to take our eyes off of it , day or night. It's in a fantastic location right by the beach , which we also loved.

The apartment has every thing you could need ( except a hairdryer so make sure you take one) . We went with 3 teenagers and we had plenty of space in the apartment and the resort felt very safe to let them wander .

It was close to some good restaurants and bars which made it hard for us to venture much further as we loved the food nearby . There is also a really well stocked small supermarket .

It would be hard to say anything negative as the resort is very relaxing and quiet and you would really struggle to beat the location of this particular apartment in the resort.

We were able to park right outside every time we moved the car which was great . We unfortunately had to take one teenager to the doctors, but this was also right nearby and a first class service .

The owners , Chris and Jack , gave us some good tips on the area and the apartment and resort didn't disappoint us . We would definitely go again in the future .

Excellent views and accomodation

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th year in Arenal and, without doubt, the best accommodation we've been in. Views directly down to the beach, large balcony with shaded area & barbeque. Accomodation was very clean on arrival, only a couple of minutes from shops & restaurants but still very quiet. Already booked to go back again next year!
