We went on a family holiday here (grandparents, me and my partner and our toddler), the villa was in such a great location, walking distance to the town centre and beach but far enough away that it’s very peaceful. The pool was excellent and cleaned regularly. Tv with absolutely loads of English channels if you like to stay in in the evenings. Lots of space and child friendly.
The villa was located in a quiet area toward the back of Cala Galdana. The pool was ideal and family friendly with steps into the shallow end.(5ft deep end) There is an outdoor eating area on the front patio and a barbecue area to the rear. The interior was basic but comfortable, although due to the high temperatures 33 degrees plus it would have been nice to have air con at night. There are good restaurants and supermarkets close by. The beautiful beach is about 5mins walk downhill and ten minutes back, when we were there the beach was very crowded. (August) The owner Ken was excellent and answered all questions promptly.
I stayed here as a family of 4 including 2 children age 6 and 4. The inside was a bit dated but it was comfortable and had everything we needed. Lots of space and would suit a large family with 2 bedrooms downstairs and 2 upstairs. I did find there were a lot of bugs around the villa, they just kept appearing overnight and we'd sweep them up each day. It didn't bother us though.
The outside is what makes the villa. Lots of space, amazing pool which is great for both adults and children, and a bbq with plenty of outside seating.
We hired a car for the two weeks we were here, but the centre of cala galdana is a short walk away, either down steps or down a hill.
Lovely villa. Would return.
Villa Galdana is situated in a great location. It is on a really quiet street with a small amount of traffic. Normally all you can hear are the pigeons in the trees opposite. The villa is not perfect , it needs some money spending on it ( mainly on the decor) . But who goes too Menorca to spend time inside!
The upstairs main bedroom is the pick of the rooms with a large sun terrace which overlooks the pool. The kitchen is plenty big enough but could do with some more cooking equipment. Washing machine is a great help, getting home with some clean clothes is a real bonus.
The best thing about the villa is without doubt the pool. There is a shallow end for less able swimmers and its about 5 foot deep at the other end. Water is clean and When the lights come on at night its great fun going for a swim!
The owner Ken is very helpful, and where you pick the keys up they go out their way to be friendly. We will definately use this villa again.

Six of us stayed in the villa. Four adults and two you children.
There was plenty of room for everyone in the house and the outdoor area was even better!
Kids loved the pool and the adults loved the BBQ area at night time.
As per previous comments, the furniture and beds could do with an update, but in all fairness, we didn't spend much time indoors.
And as it was the best priced villa for it's size, I wasn't to bothered.
The kitchen was well equipped and all linen and towels were provided.
We did however have a mosquito problem, but I think the island is renowned for that, so nothing to do with the accommodation.
I would definitely stay there again.
