2. La Quinta Hotel & Spa

La Quinta Hotel makes it to second on our list and is an ideal hotel for couples that want a luxury break in Menorca. Located in the south west of the island in Cuidadella the hotel boasts a five star rating and plenty of positive reviews.  With only 80 rooms the hotel has an intimate feel to it with visitors commenting on a chilled atmosphere throughout the hotel.  The hotel restaurant is highly recommended, for those wanting to try something different there are plently of bars and restaurants within the local vacinity to tempt you.

3. Sa Barrera Hotel

The Hotel Sa Barrera in Cala’n Porter is another hotel perfect for couples looking for a quiet getaway.  Those visiting comment on receiving a personal touch with service rated very highly.  Children are not allowed to stay in the hotel so expect total peace and relaxation during your stay.  The beach and town are within walking distance yet far enough away so not to spoil the atmosphere.  Overall a little gem of a hotel on the south coast of the island in a beautiful location.

4. Audax Spa & Wellness Hotel

The Audax Spa and Wellness hotel is situated in the resort of Cala Galdana on central south coast of Menorca.  Offering fantastic views over Cala Galdana itself and only 100 metre’s from the beautiful sandy beach the Audax Spa is a great location for the perfect beach and spa getaway.  The spa being the main attraction of this hotel means that the accommodation suits couples, friends and famiy groups with older children. 

Visitors comment on the great views from the pool area, excellent spa, high standard of rooms and the quality of the food from the restaurant as being the main reason for staying in this hotel.  The resort of Cala Galdana it’s has more than enough to offer anyone wanting to venture away from the complex during their stay.

The second of our featured hotels based on Cuidadella the Valentin Star has rooms featuring marina views and location wise it is close to a couple of small beaches.  The pool is excellent for those with children with plenty of sun loungers available for use, guests staying here comment on the size of the pool as it is larger than many other hotels on in Menorca.  Accommodation is available on a half board basis and there are plently of restaurants around the marina that suit a variety of tastes.

7. Casas Lago

The Casas Lago is located in the popular resort of Cala’n Bosch with many visitors choosing to return here after their first visit.  The hotel itself looks over the habour/marina of Cala’n Bosch and is a short walking distance from the resorts beach located just across the road from the complex.  As previously mentioned the marina features a large number of quality restaurants offering a wide choice of foods along with a shopping area to the rear of the marina.

An ideal location for a holiday by the pool/sea the Sol Menorca is located in Santa Tomas a short transfer from the airport.  Just a stones throw away from the beach the hotel features large rooms with en suite bathrooms.  The Sol Menorca is aimed at older clientele although that’s not to say the hotel is not a popular choice with younger families.

Santa Tomas itself is very unspoilt and uncommercialised making this hotel a great choice for those looking for a quiet getaway.

9. Hotel Apartamentos Princesa Playa

Even though not strictly a hotel the Princesa Playa in Cuidadella is worthy of inclusion in this list due to it’s value for money. The Princesa Playa features self catering accommodation with a kitchen for those happy to go it alone although it does also offer half board basis in the hotel style rooms.  Like many of the other hotels in this area the marina is close by with plenty of restaurants.
