This villa is beautiful. We were very nervous about going abroad for the first time with our 2 children, but this was all we expected and more. Adele is so helpful with everything and the villa really is like home from home. We search for hours and hours for a villa and we were begining to think we were being too fussy, wanting a fab pool, and near the airport so we didnt have a long transfer, and near the beach and resturants but nice and quiet........then we found Villa Rioja.
The boys LOVED the pool, and there were lots of inflatables for us all to play on. When i got a bit hot for them mid-afternoon they could go inside and watch some CBEEBIES or play a board game under the parasol and i could stay out and read my book. If you was in a hotel you would have to go in with them everytime they needed the loo. It made it so much more relaxing. The Villa is wonderful, clean, tidy and everything you need.
We had a BBQ a few nights, ate out some other nights and made a spag bol, pizza and chips the other 2 nights, the kitchen has everything you need and the supermarket just 5 minutes away is well stocked. The boys just stayed in the pool till late, then we ate tea outside. The roof top terrace is lovely, you can watch the sunset with a glass of wine, it is very private.
The beach is lovely, and the water is shallow very far out, so very safe for children. There is a play area open at night that has a bar, so it is nice to have a drink and the kids can play on the bouncy thingy and ride go-carts.
We also caught the bus in to Mahon one day, which has a lovely harbour, we enjoyed looking at all the boats and had lunch there and a very big ice-cream.
This truly is a wonderful holiday, totally relaxing, which we were worried about with the children, but because it is totally safe, and a locked gate and there is only you, you arent worried about them getting lost etc. It really is like being at home, in your back garden, with the sun and a pool.......and no jobs to do! I can not recommend it enough. The boys actually cried the morning we left.
Thank you Adele and Don for sharing this wonderful place with us
Well what can I say thank you so much for your very kind words and review about our lovely Villa Rioja. Also of our resort Calan Porter which we think is a lovely little village and has everything for a perfect family holiday. It makes so proud when we get such great reviews and it makes all our efforts and hard work worth while. I do hope you will visit us again soon once again thank you

From our first enquiry about the villa to our return home Adele has been most helpful, the info pack sent before we left about who to use to book a taxi to & from the airport, to the street map outlining the best places to eat was so useful and a great help. The villa was fantastic, clean, tidy, airy and had everything you would need to make your stay enjoyable, the kids found the dvd's and the toy box which was invaluable after they had been dragged kicking from the pool. The outside area was also clean and well maintained, the pool and inflatables were a great success. Overall we could not find anything to fault the villa or surrounding area, we would most definatly be back again, thankyou for making it a pleasurable stay.
Thank you so much for such a lovely positive review, pleased you found all the info help full, sometime I think I send to much! but just goes to show you can never have enough. Great that you made use of the toys and games for the children and glad that you may visit us again at Villa Rioja, we will look forward to welcoming you back hopefully soon.

"Super Villa, everything you could ask for, Great Location"
We stayed with a 3 month year old and a 2.5 year old. The villa was excellent and we had a great time. My little boy was constantly in the pool (loads of pool inflatables at the villa too, also loads of board games, toy box, books, PS2, CBBIES etc which was invaluable) and also the play centre down the road, to the point we had to do detours to prevent melt downs. We got onto the roof terrace once for a quick glass of cava and watched the sun set! We had many BBQ teas on the lovely BBQ by the pool, the shops are not far away easily walkable. The beach is really close by, down some steps - the water is very clear and quite warm once you are in.
If you are leaving on a Friday and your flight is later in the day, an option (which we did) was to take a day room at the Hotel Azul and it was excellent. It only cost 40 euros in the end - the food there was great - plus beer and wine on tap as much as you can drink as part of the meal price (20 euro for the family - though couldn't take use of the all you can drink element - dam...!).
All in all would totally recommend the Villa Rioja and Adele as a hostess - who was very helpful with advice and made our stay very enjoyable and easy.
Thank you for your wonderful review and so glad you had a great time. Great to know you made use of everything we have provided, as that what it all there for hope you come back to visit us again soon.

"Wonderful Villa holiday - for the 3rd time!!"
It's always a pleasure booking our holiday villa with Red Wine Villas - the service is great, very efficient and the information Adele provides about the resort is spot on! The villa itself suited our needs down to the ground. We have small children and everything is so convenient which takes the stress out of our precious holiday. The villa is quiet, private and safe. There is plenty to keep the kids amused whilst they have a rest from the sun - the toy box and games always go down a treat! This was our 3rd visit to Cala en Porter but the first time we've gone in season - the bars and restaurants are all very family friendly and the shows at Sai Passa were brilliant. The beach is beautiful and safe for the children because you can walk out really far in the sea without it getting too deep. All in all a fab holiday - great weather, great villa - great family time :)
Once again thank you for your review of our lovely Villa and glad you finally made a visit to Villa Rioja in the main season and enjoyed it. Early and late season I think you can be spoiled with the peace and tranquillity the resort offers. Not that it is ever over crowed anyway, glad the children made use of the toy boxes and you enjoy the entertainment that our resort offers hope you will return again soon

Villa Riojca is absolutely fabulous to stay in. Within easy walking distance of the town where there are a couple of supermarkets, plus bars and restraunts, everything you need during your stay. The villa is beautifully furnished inside and outside. There is a lovely roof terrace fully equipped with table and chairs and sun loungers. The view from the roof is amazing overlooking the sea and the bay. The swimming pool is great and we all had plenty of fun in it, There is plenty of space around the pool to just lay and sunbathe, plus table and chairs for eating. Plenty of sunloungers and umberellas for shade if you need them. Overall stay was brilliant for all my family who ranged in age from 13 to 73!
Thank you for your great review it makes us very proud that you say Villa Rioja is Fabulous!!! we think so to. Glad that it suited all your needs it makes all our efforts worth while. Hope you will visit us again soon.

"our stay ticked all the right boxes."
The essential pool at villa Rioja was regularly attended and kept clean. The property was well equiped, clean and quiet at night. Shops cafes and night life were only a few minute walk away as was the beach. There were a lot of steps down to the beach which had toilets, cafes and sun loungers for hire. The sea was shallow and safe for small children.
If you have a car it is worth going to the supermarket in Mahon to stock up and save some euros.
Thank you for your review for your stay with us at Villa Rioja. Glad you enjoyed and made good use of the pool and that you liked the location which we think is perfect. Yes as you have said there are steps to the beach, the kids never have a problem with them, It's just us adults that complain and can find them hard work on the way back up !!. However well worth the effort I think, as the beach is beautiful and as you have said, everything is down there for a great day on the sands and not forgetting Great '' Tapas '' on offer should you wish to eat.

"Truly a home from home holiday but with brilliant sunshine"
Villa Rioja is the ideal holiday location if you just want to chill out and let the world go by - we had a great holiday. The villa was spotlessly clean and everything you require was included. During the day we would bask in the sun or take a dip in the villas pool - great !
Each night we would stroll to the local centre for our evening meal where you are spoilt for dinning options.
The villa is great for families
Thank you for your kind review of our Villa Rioja and glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We think Villa Rioja offers the perfect holiday in every way and you also do to! which pleases us very much we hope you will visit us again soon

"Beautiful Villa – all you need for a family holiday!"
We stayed in Villa Rioja from 14th – 28th June 2013 and had a fantastic time! Ranging in age from 1 – 66, the villa catered for everyone, and our little one loved the toy and book cupboard, and the baby items made life so much easier for us (including CBeebies – thank you!). The weather was excellent (mid to late 70's) and the area is lovely and clean with a good selection of bars and restaurants – excellent for families. Villa Rioja was spotless and the pool cleaned often. The kitchen is also very well equipped and the decor is fresh and clean. There is plenty of storage space in the bedrooms and the roof terrace is lovely – both for the welcoming breeze and the gorgeous sea views. Located a short walk away from the centre (a very maximum of 5 minutes) and even closer to the very handy Spa and Spanish supermarket, both deliver if necessary, which stock everything you need for a relaxing day by the pool.
Regarding where to eat – we found the Castle to be both enjoyable and reasonable, also Casa Tia serve gorgeous tapas – and patatas bravas in traditional spicy sauce not the mayonnaise a lot of restaurants serve. Club Menorca has spectacular views over the sea, and the home-made food is delicious, but the customer service leaves something to be desired! If you do go, arrive hungry as there will be a wait! And hope the young barman isn't on shift as he'd much rather chat up the single lady diners rather than serve the group of 6 hungry and thirsty guests!
If you fancy a day out, we highly recommend the wine tasting/tour at Bodegas Binifadet – a vineyard in Sant Lluis, which is approx 15 minutes away by taxi from the villa and 20 euros each way. The tour is free and very interesting, plus you get to sample two wines each (which are lovely!) and the bottles start from 7 euros each so not too expensive at all. We also stayed for lunch, which is served outside on a lovely veranda covered in vines, and the food was beautiful. Probably our best meal in Menorca! If we hadn't have had a lively toddler in tow, we'd have probably booked an evening meal there – although not cheap, well worth the money.
All in all, Adele and Don have a beautiful villa in a lovely area which we would be happy to recommend to anyone! Well done and thank you for making our holiday so pleasant and enjoyable. We hope to return in the not too distant future! The Jones Family x x x
Well what great review for our future guest's to read and not just about our beautiful Villa Rioja but also about our lovely little resort of Calan Porter. We are so glad that you all enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future should you ever wish to return but remember you have to book early if you want to stay with us at Villa Rioja !!

"Fantastic holiday in the perfect villa"
We are just back from a week in villa rioja and have had a wonderful time. The villa has everything you could need and is immaculate. Adele and don have really thought of everything it is a home from home. Calan porter is a lovely resort, peaceful but that suited us all perfectly. The caves are a must, spectacular views and the restaurant beside it is beautiful. We would definatly recommend the villa to family and friends and if we were to return to menorca it would be our first stop.
great so glad you had a wonderful time at our Villa Rioja and we are looking forward to hopefully welcoming you soon again at Villa Rioja but please remember you must book early !!!.
