We know that you might be feeling uncertain about booking your next holiday with the ever-changing travel restrictions, which is why we've introduced our Travel Restrictions Guarantee for your peace of mind.
Book your next villa holiday with confidence, safe in the knowledge that you can either move your dates or receive a holiday voucher for the full amount paid if your travel dates are restricted by either FCDO/local government advice advice or local restrictions in your destination country.*
The Travel Restrictions Guarantee is automatically included in the website price and can be removed before you book, however we strongly advise you keep it to give you added flexibility and protection.
You will still need to purchase a comprehensive travel insurance policy as soon as your booking is confirmed. This insurance should, as a minimum, protect you against cancellation, curtailment, medical expenses, loss/theft of possessions and documents, personal liability and airline failure.

If there are restrictions in your destination country preventing you from being able to travel to that destination, you will be able to cancel your villa and receive a voucher for the full amount paid for your villa to rebook when you are ready to do so.
'Travel Restrictions Guarantee' is automatically included in the search results price on the solmarvillas.com website.

Four-bedroomed Villa Carmela has been built with living under the sun in mind. Set on two levels, there are several outdoor patios to enjoy eating al fresco and drinking in the upper view with a sangria.
The curved swimming pool, with cute seahorse design, sits in the garden surrounded by sun beds. A relaxing rattan dining set rests in the patio by the pool and the Spanish BBQ allows you to serve up some tapas for hungry guests.
Reflecting the colours of the beach, interiors are a mix of sunny yellow and blue. Blue wooden furniture contrasts with sunny covers and curtains. Upstairs there is a lovely patio to enjoy sundowners on and the four bedrooms are very welcoming. There are also three spacious bathrooms, two sharing and one en suite.
This villa is in a great location as it’s within walking distance of Cala Galdana beach. It’s one of Menorca’s most picturesque holiday spots. A horseshoe bay with a soft, sandy shore and clear, calm turquoise waters makes a superb place to snorkel, kayak or take out a pedalo. If you take around a 20 minute walk along the forest and cliffside you’ll reach Cala Mitjana, which is a superb place to snorkel.
*The villa has been designed with a downstairs bedroom and wet room with widened doorways for wheelchairs. There is a small step from the terrace to the pool area.
**Due to the San Joan Festival, all bookings which include 22nd – 24th June, we shall only accept Family bookings.
Usual day is Fridays.
April - October is fixed, flexible at any other times.

Laying claim to the most beautiful beach in Menorca, Cala Galdana villa holidays offer a relaxing vibe and gorgeous scenery - just perfect for that well-deserved break. The horseshoe-shaped bay boasts soft white sand, shallow, turquoise waters and a dramatic limestone cliff backdrop, giving it an almost Caribbean feel. Water-sports aplenty are on offer in Cala Galdana, and a small wooden bridge over the ravine makes for a picturesque setting and provides the opportunity to walk along the headland and through the pine forests. There’s so much to do on a villa holiday in Cala Galdana, but the pace of life remains slow and steady providing just the right balance.
The villa was as expected and great location. We were happy with the service from booking and throughout our holiday. We would recommend the villa and Solmar Villas.

Quiet position. Lovely clean pool. Proximity to good restaurants. Away from the beach and noise.

The villa exceeded our expectations - very well equipped, very clean, all bedrooms a good size, clean, good size pool. Although on a corner plot there wasn't much road or pedestrian noise - but the villa is overlooked by 3 other villas as they were obviously all built at the same time and close together. It didn't bother us at all but something to be aware of. Easy 10 minute walk to one of the better supermarkets which had everything you needed. There are a variety of ways to walk down to the main resort area and beach - steps or roads - BUT be aware you do need a decent level of mobility - anyone with mobility or health issues might need to get a taxi back up to the villa. Carla Galdana itself has a beautiful beach which, although popular, has space for everyone and there are plenty of restaurants, bars and shops. We are in several restaurants and food standard was very good. Have to recommend the Mirador which is on a promentary and has great views over the beach and excellent food. All seven of us had a really enjoyable week and would love to return both to Cala Galdana and Villa Carmela.

The villa is located within 5 minutes walk from the beach. The villa is overlooked by other properties and the pool had limited sunshine due to this. The property was listed as having a wii, which we couldn't get to work. Bring your own controllers and games. Wifi was good and all bedrooms were spacious.

Villa Carmela was large and in great condition, with it being built fairly recently. All amenities we needed were catered for, with the pool and its roman steps ideal for cooling off and for young kids to enjoy. Two balconies and a shaded dining area offer variety when looking to eat and drink within the villa, whilst there are plentiful sun beds and chairs to also use. Bear in mind that the walk to the town and beach is 10-15 mins down hill ... and up hill to get back. Would stay at Carmela back again, and therefore definitely recommend the villa...Lastly, the customer service from Solmar Villas was excellent. In particular, our rep Donna was immense, and helped us no end, expecially when with two days left I decided to extend our stay and needed help finding a hotel and change of transfers. We are very thankful for her presence and attitude.

Cala Galdana itself is wonderful. The beach and outlook is picture perfect, and whilst others say it is a big resort within Menorca... it is not big at all when compared to other places we have visited. It is close to perfect for young families, with the bay meaning there are no waves or current, and it gently slopes so parents and children can go out a long way without fear. The snorkelling is also very good. There are some excellent restaurants to try ... Cala Mitjana is the finest restaurant there and with a good taster menu option, whilst Alaska offers the best tapas by far and at reasonable prices. Tobaggon was a life saver for us, offering slides and a toddler pool for our 15 month old at her dinner time, with good food options. We will consider coming back to Cala Galdana in the next few years. Lastly, the customer service from Solmar Villas was excellent.

Resort very family friendly with beautiful clean beach and good selection of places to eat. Small waterpark very popular with our three year old. Villa clean and had a good pool but was far from luxurious. This is the 4th villa we have stayed at in Menorca.
