Menorca hotels are generally very family-friendly and there is a good range to choose from despite the small size of the island. The best deals on both hotels and self-catering options are often available as part of a package but there are also some great rates available when you book online.
The island is reached via flights to the capital city of Mahon. There are limited hotel options available in the capital itself but the numerous resorts that are to be found throughout the island have a great range of accommodation options to suit all budgets and different types of travellers. That doesn't mean that there isn't much to do in Mahon. The capital city has a rich architectural history as well as an array of great restaurants, bars and an impressive harbour which is one of the most popular tourist draws.
It is the wide variety of different resorts that makes Menorca such a popular destination with travellers. The main areas for tourists are along the south coast and there are some spectacular resorts in which to stay. Most of these hotels are three- and four-star rated and aimed towards families, which means there are plenty of kids' clubs to keep the younger ones entertained while the parents can enjoy relaxing by the pool or the evening entertainments. There are also a few five-star hotels which offer luxury accommodation and excellent restaurants. The majority of Menorca hotels provide fantastic access to the gently-shelving beaches and the wide range of water sports that can be enjoyed around the island's shores.
There are various self-catering options in Menorca, many of which are from well-known Spanish chains such as H10, Hesperia, Nunez, Riu Hoteles, Sirenis and Viva, as well as a good selection of locally-owned hotels and private villas.
The variety of resorts means that there is something for everyone on this largely unspoilt island. Arenal D`en Castell is a self-catering resort which is conveniently located just 12 miles from the capital. Binibeca on the south coast is largely undiscovered and an ideal destination for those who want to get away from the traditional package holiday set-up. Son Parc features a championship-quality golf course and is surrounded by a picturesque pine forest which is perfect for exploring. In fact, despite its reputation as a tourist hotspot, Menorca really gives its visitors something a little bit different from the typical package-holiday offerings.
