When you plan a trip to Menorca looking for hotels can be a more complicated task than you imagined because there are all kind of them; Beach, city, rural accommodations … Choosing a hotel will depend a lot on the route you have planned. To make your life a little easier, here is my selection of hotels by area.
Hotels in Ciutadella
It was the ancient capital of the Menorca and that is why it is one of the two main ports of the island. It is worth spending at least a night there because it has a very nice old town to walk around, local food restaurants and a very curious market in which to buy gastro souvenirs.
Aparthotel Skyline Menorca
This is one of the top hotels in Ciutadella, where you will feel like a star.
It is at the end of the paseo de Sant Nicolau, just 10 minutes from the old town and the entrance to the port. It is perfect to rest a bit after a day trip around the island with pool and the sea view in the background.
971 Hotel Con Encanto
This nice hotel is in the heart of the city, in a traditional menorcan style house. It is a perfect hotel for couples who like downtown urban life and go out for a drink without being too far from the hotel. The harbor and the cathedral are only a stone’s throw away.
It is a perfect hotel to sleep in Ciutadella in value for money. Close to the center; Less than 5 minutes far from the cathedral. Functional; Rooms with the necessary for a comfortable stay and even a bar and a nice terrace where you can take a refreshment. For less than 50 € the double room you will be close to anything you want to visit.
Hotels close the best known coves in Menorca
If you want a couple of days of luxury near the beach this will be your best choice. This adults-only hotel is located right in Cala Saldana and has everything you can imagine for a top 10 stay. Spa, rooms with sea view, 2 swimming pools, a bar etc … You will know where to go if you don’t want to leave the hotel.
It is an old country house that, like many others, has been converted into agrotourism accommodation. It has only 4 rooms and an apartment with 2 rooms and shared kitchen. They have no restaurant but they offer sandwiches and menu if you order them in advance. And they are great. Just 5 minutes from Cala Mitjana and Galdana, it is ideal for a romantic or family getaway.
Sometimes holidays can be boring, but your summer nights won’t be boring anymore if you decide to stay at Sa Paisa. Almost every day they organize outdoor concerts on their terrace, so after a day at the beach in Cala en Porter (it’s 5 minutes far) you just have to worry about swimming in the pool and ordering dinner at their restaurant.
Hotels in Mahón
Can Roca Nou
It is a charming boutique hotel opened in mid-2016. Its location is unbeatable; Just 5 minutes from the center of Mahon as well as the port. Its decoration is simple and according to the style of the building, just white and wood. Its rooms are very spacious and cozy. Best of all, no doubt; breakfast. With a small buffet with local sausages and sweets.
Agroturismo Matxani Gran
In Matxani you will have that existential doubt between going out to know the island or staying all day in the hotel. It’s a great farmhouse that reminds you of a family home, and that’s how you’ll feel. It has 10 super spacious rooms, each of them decorated in a different way and with rustic style bathroom perfectly equipped. In the common areas you will find nothing more and nothing less than a swimming pool, a terrace, a bar and a lounge with a fireplace.
Hostal La Isla
If you are looking to stay near the center at a moderate price, consider this option. It has 22 rooms, all with private bathroom. It is less than 5 minutes from the old town and a parking lot where you can park for free. Without a doubt one of the best things is that it is run by a family that offers home cooked food in their restaurant and they will not hesitate to give you advice on anything you ask them about the island.
