The Balearic Islands, off the coast of Spain, are a popular holiday destination year-round. Check into one of these top resorts in Menorca if you’re looking for Mediterranean beaches and non-stop sunshine, complete with lagoon pools, five-star spas and all the sports facilities and entertainment you can handle. Here’s our pick of the best resorts in Menorca, bookable with Culture Trip.
White Sands Beach Club lives up to the name, set on the shores of a secluded crescent cove: Arenal d’en Castell. Gaze at the glittering Mediterranean Sea from the infinity pool or the flower-draped terrace of your self-catering apartment. Each has a kitchen (there’s a supermarket a short walk away for groceries) and up to three bedrooms. When you’re not on the beach, enjoy table tennis or mini-golf at the resort, and let kids loose in the playground and separate shallow pool.
With marina views and a five-star spa, this adults-only resort in Menorca is ideal for a splurge. A contemporary nautical theme runs throughout, with teal soft furnishings, beach prints, blue up-lighting and seafaring paraphernalia on the walls. In the Aquarium seafood restaurant, you’re surrounded by fish tanks and views of the glitzy marina, while the pool area offers dazzling-white cabanas for relaxing. Suites have large terraces and the most fancy has a Jacuzzi.
All-inclusive family fun is the order of the day at Insotel Punta Prima, which has family suites, some with swim-up pool access. This five-star resort in Menorca provides a stellar package that includes all food and drinks, a host of sports and an entertainment programme that’ll please everyone. Think tennis, aqua gym and a spa for adults, while little ones get to have fun at the kids’ club. Head to nearby Punta Prima Beach for calm, clear waters, or splash around in the three outdoor pools at the resort.
Valentin Star Hotel is an adults-only retreat with a lagoon-style pool and bubbling Jacuzzi, perfect for lazy days in the sun. By night, cocktails and live music flow at the classy terrace bar, while the Valentin restaurant serves high-end themed buffets and show-cooking. To top it off, the hotel lies just 820km (250m) from the coveted sands of Cala’n Bosch Beach.
Planning a romantic Menorca getaway? Then, stay at this five-star boutique hotel, rated one of the most luxurious adults-only properties in Spain. Book the junior suite for a hammocked terrace and your own whirlpool tub. The decor features colonial flair with ornate bed heads, high ceilings and local artwork – there’s even a pillow menu. Spend sun-soaked days lounging by the pool, have a candlelit Mediterranean feast or book a pamper session for two in the spa.
Come to Carema Club Resort for a traditional family holiday complete with high-energy kids’ clubs, buffet restaurants and a prime location near Cala Tirant Beach. Mediterranean-style apartments have up to two bedrooms and allow for a self-catering stay. Children will love the pirate-themed splash park with waterslides, plus there are sports facilities for all the family – whether you’re into mini-golf, tennis or beach volleyball. The focal point of this resort in Menorca is the pool, which is surrounded by Balinese beds and loungers.
Hotel Xaloc Playa lies steps from popular Punta Prima Beach, one of the best in Menorca. The bungalows here are ideal if you’re planning a self-catering stay with a group, as they come with two bedrooms, a kitchen and roomy living areas with exposed stone wall details. Private balconies and terraces look out over the tropical resort gardens and sparkling pool. There’s also a range of activities on offer, including mini-golf and table tennis, as well as bike rental services.
