The entertainment wasn't too bad, some nights it was excellent and other nights not so good, when the weather is fine the entertainment is on the stage at the rear of the hotel by the pool and the atmosphere is nice, as most of the rooms are located around the pool you could stay on your terrace or balcony and watch the entertainment.
I would not visit the hotel again as we were led to believe this was suitable for couples but during our stay there were many young babies and toddlers and the pool area became very cramped and extremely noisy. The pool is beautiful and about 50% is shallow therefore all the children were in the main pool and the childrens pool was always empty. There are also not enough sunbeds. Some people complained but were told they did not have the room for any more beds. Be warned they remove any towels from the sun beds in the morning if they are not being used.
The hotel supply pool towels, they charge a 10euro deposit which is refunded at the end of your stay but they charge 1euro per towel per day to change it. It was not the relaxing holiday we had hoped for so if you are looking for a quiet hotel for couples this is not the place for you.

the hotel was near the marina with loads of restaurants
and entertainment for kids.
the food was excellent with plenty of variety, omelettes made to order also toasted sannies. loads of fruit, pastries etc. drinks could be charged to hotel room cards (quite useful).
the pool area was awesome, with sunbeds on wheels and sprays.
the pool area doubled as a venue for some bands at night. if weather was bad the bar was used. in front of hotel adjacent to marina, the second band played often causing large build up of people watching the acts.
"il divo" were excellent!
they have sorted out previous problems and i would give it a deserved 4 star rating.

The hotel was very clean, there was maid service everyday, new towels and beds changed daily.
The food was good with a good variety.
The location was brilliant, right next to shops bars and resturants and overlooking the harbour.
The pool area was fantastic, never had trouble getting a sunbed, you could enjoy breakfast and then go and take your pick of sunbeds, we was a family of 8 and got beds together everyday.
The hotel entertainment was good, but being so close to the harbour you could have your choice of entertainment.
Me and my family would definately go again and are allready looking for next year, would most definately stay at this hotel again.

Excellent size rooms, very clean & tidy ideally situated next to marina.
Entertainment in hotel was varied with Elvis & a Blues band being very good acts.
Only slight downside was food in restaurant at times was never hot enough for us and seen meals being sent sent to kitchen to be reheated in their microwave otherwise an excellent place to stay for a relaxing holiday in pleasant surroundings.

The food was varied, prepared well and there was always plenty to eat.
The location was perfect, situated on the marina with its many bars and restaurants. The beach was a 5 minute stroll away.
The staff were friendly and very helpful.
The entertainment was good with a different act each night.
We would definitely recommend this hotel and plan to visit again, it was a very enjoyable holiday.

We found the Hotel very clean and the staff very friendly always willing to have a laugh and a joke. The pool area is beautiful, usual towels on the beds in the morning but we usually managed to find a couple after breakfast.
Very nice restaurant only one complaint about the food which would be the lack of veg. Plenty of salads though.
Three or four meat dishes(steak/chops/ chicken/casseroles etc)and a couple of fish dishes every night, we even had rabbit one night, not everyones choice I suppose but it is different, and to go with that there was pasta and rice dishes, chips and potatoes and a veg dish.
There was always a choice of two soups with fresh crusty bread, and the puddings were excellent i would say about eight plus a selection of icecream and tinned fruits, then to finish there was always fresh fruit (pineapple/melon/banana/apples etc).
On the whole I would say there was something for everyone.
The rooms we found to be larger than usual, with a large TV , a safe and a fridge.
Balcony with good quality furniture (Not the usual white plastic). Would recommend asking for a pool view when booking because this is a popular hotel and there may not be any available if you ask to move when you book in. we had a road view over the side garden which was OK but next time it will be a pool view.
I cannot recommend this hotel enough and we will be going back, in fact I know which room I will be requesting.

Communal areas were presented to a very high standard, and these and the rooms were kept spotlessly clean by a very efficient and friendly staff.
The hotel is in a perfect location, right next to the marina of Cala N Bosch (the Hotel restaurant actually looks out on the marina) and about 200m from the main beach of Cala N Bosch. There is also the Son Xorgieur beach about ten minutes' walk away.
The food quality and quantity was great (though a few more local Menorcan dishes would have been great to complement the 'international' cuisine). The pool is fantastic, with a large shallow end ideal for young kids. Finding a vacant pool-side sunbed was occasionally a problem but they were available most of the time.
There is a kids mini-disco in the bar in the early evening followed by nightly evening shows. The ones we saw were average to good, but because the hotel is so near to the centre of resort activity most people seemed to go to the town in the evening.
Clientele was a mix of English and Germans with a few Spaniards also. It was mostly couples, with ages from mid-20s to retired people. There were also a large number of couples with children under 4.
It's not a 'buzzing' hotel so maybe would not be suitable for a family with older children and would definitely not suit teenagers, but for those couples and young families looking for a quiet, high-quality hotel to base themselves, Valentin Star is one you should consider.
