Crystal clear clean water waiting to be snorkelled. CALAN PORTER is an ideal family resort, water shutes, safe beach, plenty of restaurants and friendly locals, ensure a happy family holiday. the world famous night club CAVES OF ZOXRO, are in a spectacular setting. Set dizzyingly in the cliffs, it must be seen at night, never to be forgotten. fFor culture lovers CUITADELLA has a great deal of history within its ancient walls and harbour.

"Fabulous stay.....sad to leave"
My husband and ilooked forever to find somewhere we found that would be suitable as we have 2 young children aged 8 & 6. Juniper really stood out to us as if had all the amenities that we needed the pictures, they were exaclty how i expected it to be. We found it very homely, plenty of space, very relaxing place to be. The pool was so close that again it was exacly as described. The children loved staying here, as there are bunk beds which they thought were great! when we had days by the pool they were in an out of it all day whilst we relaxed by the pool or we could even see them from the balcony it was that close, very ideal. They loved the park too!.... We would eat out most nights (one favourite place was 'The Castle' fantastic food, excellent value 3 courses with half a bottle of wine per person 15-16 euros. Eating in would be just as plesant as family meal together, the kitchen isnt the biggest but was mor than able to cook a meal for 4. The shops, restaurants and bars were very close by 5 mins walk if that. We took a walk down to the beach several times via the steps, something you need energy for as there are 196 (i think my children counted) but we found it no problem if you have the energy. There is access also by the road which would take a bit longer to walk down to, but 'no steps'. The beach is a lovely beach quite secluded as its in its own bay. They have toilets etc plus a couple of bars to eat in. The Tapas were lovely.... We loved the city Mahon, beautiful place, lots of shops plenty of places for a coffee or even a cheeky beer!, we took a walk along the harbour which was really nice, quite a long walk but very plesant, we noticed many a place also to eat along there too. We hope to be booking again for next year, we would like to hire a car next year to explore the island a bit more plus to get to stay here again! it was sad to leave......Thank you for the stay :-)

"Juniper Holiday Apartment - Well Below Par"
The owners apparently bought this apartment from pre-build and I suspect that little or no DIY or decoration has taken place since. It is very old and dated, especially the kitchen area, which is tiny. This will however, all become aparent when you arrive and see the "For Sale" sign outside it!
We arrived late in the evening with a baby and young child, only to find that there was no means of lighting the gas hob, in order to boil the kettle & make the baby's bottle. The kettle is an old, metal type, which you have to boil on the gas hob, therefore we were stuck. We eventually bought a cigarette lighter from a nearby shop, in order to light the hob & boil the kettle!! It was more like a camping trip than a holiday apartment. The cooker & grill were extremely difficult to light (if at all).
The crockery and plastic containers in the kitchen were filthy & despite scrubbing some of the containers 3 times, decided not to give them to our children.
There is no TV in the apartment, which I appreciate isn't imperative for everyone, but with 2 small children & being home early in the evenings, there was no means of entertainment for neither the children nor ourselves. We were told by the owner beforehand that there was wi-fi available in the apartment (as listed on the advert), however, please be aware that there is NO wi-fi available at all in the apartment. No router, no phone point and definitely NO wi-fi.
The decor is very dated, which is pretty irrelevant, however, when you find that the set of drawers in the 2nd bedroom is rotten, falling to bits & very difficult to open, you feel reluctant to put anything in there! The same can be said of some of the other items in the apartment. Also the floor tiles were uneven & cracked, meaning that the 2nd bedroom door wouldn't shut and approximately 1/3 of the cupboard space is locked and marked as private. Also there are no curtains in the main bedroom, which meant people could see in and there was no way to block out the light (we hung a sheet up in order for the baby to sleep).
We twice woke up in the morning to find an army of ants in the bathroom, which had to be dealt with before allowing our children in there. The ceiling fans are adequate, but with no air conditioning, I would imagine that it can be quite uncomfortable in the hottest months.
We hired a travel cot, which was arranged through the owner and in place when we arrived. It cost 50 Euros for 2 weeks and was like something out of the 1920's, with a mattress to match. There was very little choice but to use it & we paid the manager directly.
We contacted the owner twice by e-mail and twice by text message when we arrived & eventually received a reply, stating that she was not responsible for lighting the cooker, nor the wi-fi. She also stated that the apartment was lovely and was suitable for most guests .........
The pool area is nice & suitable for children, but there are no sunbeds at all around it, I'm not sure why?? There are no sunbeds provided in the apartment either, so you are stuck with a towel on the concrete or grass if you wish to sunbathe.
The position of the apartment is good, as it is opposite the pool, but then we had towels stolen one night when people came back drunk and went into the pool.
The beach is lovely and is close, if you access it via the 180 steps. You can also walk around via the road if you have a wheelchair or pushchair, which is fine.
In response to your review;
firstly; It is not stated that there is a T.V. It is usually too hot inside, to watch one. I consider Spanish T.V. too violent and sexually explicit for young children.
secondly: There is a new fridge, new cooker, and all new beds.
The apartment is in the best position, on the family complex, situated overlooking the pools, childrens playground and mature gardens. It is well equipped, comfortable,and home from home.
It was 14pounds per day, per person, which represents spectacular value.
It has been fully booked since 1982, revisited many happy times.
