Ciutadella's old town is surrounded by the "Contramurada", a street running around the town where originally the city wall would have been. The town is a maze of narrow Arabic and medieval streets. The horn shaped harbour is long and narrow, and has several popular places to eat and drink. There is a variety of shops, bars and restaurants available locally and Ciutadella has a lively but upmarket nightlife.
The Playa Grande Hotel is located in the old historical centre of Ciutadella, the original Menorcan capital, less than 50 metres from Cala Degollador beach. The hotel has a modern architectural style; rooms are well equipped and most enjoy a wonderful sea view.
