While Menorca can’t match bigger sibling Mallorca for boisterous resorts, the quieter, more laid-back vibe means it holds its own when it comes to the best hotels in the Balearics. So whether you’re here to explore the Mediterranean-style buildings of Ciutadella, explore the sandstone quarries of Ses Pedreres de s’Hostal, or simply laze on the sands, there’s a hotel for you here.

Menorca Experimental

Enjoy a balance of rustic Menorcan countryside and salty sea air with a stay at Menorca Experimental. Pine groves and fragrant juniper shrubs surround the 19th-century finca, which is a 15-minute walk along the Cami de Cavalls hiking path to the secluded pebble beach, Cala Llucalari. Stone floors, embroidered bed throws and dried flowers in woven baskets inhabit the 43 guestrooms, nine of which have private dipping pools. Opt to explore the island on horseback or discover what’s below sea level and dive in the marine reserve in the bay of Fornells.

Hotel Tres Sants

Hidden in the historic centre of Ciutadella – so much so that you may mistakenly miss the entrance – this 18th-century mansion does a good job of stealing the hearts of those who stay here. See its history in exposed wooden beams, arched windows and stone ceilings, and rooms that contain secret alcoves and four-poster beds. Don’t fancy soaking up the sun on the roof terrace? Then spend your time swimming in the underground pool, or lounging in the Turkish baths.

Casa Albertí

Boutique Hotel

A visit to Casa Albertí is a history lesson in itself. It was built in 1740 by one of the most important literary figures in Menorca, Vicente Albertí y Vidal; a floor-to-ceiling staircase, coat of arms over the balcony, exposed beams and restored doors pay tribute to his legacy. The city port is within walking distance, and the hotel staff will happily provide you with a picnic for your excursions. Take inspiration from the first proprietor of the building and use the writing desk in your room.

Hotel Can Faustino

Built as a palace in the 16th century, it’s not just the architectural heritage here that makes you feel like royalty. The army of staff will organise wine tastings, horse rides, boat tours – on one of their two vessels – and city walks. The medieval cathedral, Plaça des Born, and the excavated ruins of the Museu Municipal are just around the corner, but you’ll quickly forget you’re in the midst of a city when exploring the olive trees of the hotel garden. Enjoy the pleasant surroundings while dining al fresco at Fuego, where home-grown vegetables from local producers are used to create dishes.

Melia Cala Galdana

Resort, Chain Hotel

Set into limestone cliffs overlooking the turquoise waters of Cala Galdana bay, this hotel has a setting to take your breath away. Each of the 340 rooms features those stunning vistas, together with the four restaurants and infinity-edge pool. Service and dining are also top-notch, plus a summer kids club takes care of the little ones while the grown-ups can luxuriate in sea-view jacuzzis.

Artiem Audax

Spa Hotel

This swish, adults-only hotel also has some spectacular views over Cala Galdana, a picturesque cove. Artiem Audax also has one of the most impressive spas in Menorca, if not the Balearics, together with a fabulous rooftop infinity pool. Super ecofriendly policies also make this one of the greenest hotels on the island.

PortBlue La Quinta

An adults-only option, this high-end hotel oozes luxury with colonial-style architecture and an impressive collection of modern art. As one of only a handful of five-star hotels on the island, this boutique property features a particularly deluxe spa and a sunny, semi-circular swimming pool.

Hotel Torralbenc

Converted from a traditional 19th-century Menorcan farmstead, this luxury hotel is certainly one of the finest examples of rustic-chic on the island. The property is set in a series of low-rise, whitewashed buildings with plenty of wonderful vantage points overlooking the Mediterranean Sea in the distance – the stylish infinity-edge pool also features countryside panoramas. For real luxury and privacy, check in to the Pool Cottage, which has a private plunge pool set in a secluded garden.

Artiem Carlos

Resort, Chain Hotel

Part of the Menorcan Artiem chain, the Carlos is a real polished gem of a hotel. With spectacular sea-view panoramas from multiple vantage points, this adults-only option pairs an outstanding setting with upscale service and a chilled atmosphere. Thanks to a far-easterly position, early-birds are also treated to some of the best sunrises on the island.

Barcelo Hamilton

Resort, Chain Hotel

This upscale, child-free resort certainly scores high on style, with a swish contemporary finish adding to the chilled, grown-up vibe throughout. There are two outdoor swimming pools, one of which is heated over the winter months, and a deluxe underground spa featuring a Menorcan wine experience involving grape products. It’s the rooftop terrace, however, that really steals the show, with six hot tubs and views over the Bay of Mahón, plus the bonus of some spectacular sunsets to set the romantic mood.

Prinsotel La Caleta Hotel

Resort, Serviced Apartment

Comprising around half a dozen low-rise buildings scattered around manicured gardens, the Prinsotel La Caleta is a fun and breezy holiday complex overlooking the sea. It offers both apartment and regular room accommodation, plus a wide range of entertainment and facilities that make it popular with both families and couples. Deluxe apartments feature terraces with daybeds and whirlpool tubs, while all rooms are bright and spacious with free wifi and outdoor space. It’s also located within walking distance of a kid-friendly beach, and a short drive from the picturesque city of Ciutadella.

Hotel Rural Biniarroca

Another kid-free hotel with 18th-century origins, the Rural Biniarroca used to be a dairy farm before it was converted into these quaint rural lodgings. Think magenta bougainvillea climbing whitewashed stone walls, secluded gardens brimming with well-tended plant life, and peace and tranquillity. A green mosaic-lined pool provides somewhere to cool off, while excellent cuisine is locally sourced and the bar features a particularly impressive menu of gin and tonics.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
