Menorca Where to Stay for Families

Best Places for Families

Confused/Unsure? Find the ideal hotel , then check out the beach resort or the other way round? Every family's children are unique, every family has different priorities and budgets. Relax we really know Menorca so can help you with better informed choices.

Menorca is unexpected, perhaps confusing but surprisingly diverse, which means picking somewhere to stay unless you've experienced it all can be daunting and it's all too easy to pick the wrong location for you and your family especially if you read the generic locations blurb. Holiday Forums are full of these experiences.

To be upfront Menorca does not offer Majorca or Ibizia entertainments in beach prefering in hotel offerings. Your choice booking direct can have attractive pricing and deals. Or family friendly packages have the 'All Done' advantages with flights sorted


Where to stay - Our Family Resort Picks

On Menorca there is no need to avoid the excess of other youthful partygoers in the sun. Teenagers are safe to wander off on their own.

I've experienced Menorca as a child and taken my children there from babies onwards. Here are my personal top 5 menorca family where to stay resorts tips. Each is different, in their setting and on varying emphasis on independent or packaged holidays.

What all these resorts have in common though are fine sandy beaches, with safe warm waters, Red Cross, beachside toilets and bar / restaurants catering for children. Plus attractions to keep the beach rats happy away from the beach and where Mums and Dads can keep and eye on them while relaxing with a drink.

If you've only experienced coarse brown sandy beaches, backed by an unattractive skyline of hotels with little natural green scenery then you are in for a treat. Menorca does not suffer with neon nightclub excesses, over commercialization or has sold out it's nature and original charm to tourism.

All resorts - how we categorise ( realistically ) them

Arenal den Castell

One of Menorca's more touristically developed family friendly resorts with an above average offering for young children . This resort lies above a horseshoe bay with an almost enclosing headland on the horizon. It also means, the water here is shallower, calmer and warmer due to the very shallow falls into the water.

Cala en Bosch

Cala en Bosch is the closet thing Menorca has to a 'large' purpose built holiday resort . Has most varied accommodation (budget/styles)

There is an Aquapark, karting track and varying childrens entertainments, indoors and outdoors. Boats trips along the south coast so mums can experience a little bit of beach paradise too. The quieter areas to the west of the Marina have holiday villas and a commercial area serving families who prefer self caterering.
