Charming,Relaxed and Pleasant

  • 4 of 5

After recently holidaying for the first time at Els Girasols Menorca,In fact even Spain.

I feel i must comment on what a really relaxing,charming and pleasant time my party had.

The apartment was precisely as described and for my party was ideally situated in a lovely charming spot close enough to all amenities whilst keeping its pleasant relaxed quality.

The whole experience was a delight, due to a great location and the friendly pleasant people on the island.

Owner's Response: This reviewer's comments are greatly appreciated. It is true that the apartment is in a very relaxing and peaceful situation whilst at the same time being conveniently placed for all the amenities. My children have such happy memories of their holidays in Menorca and now take their own children there each year. I would say however that this holiday would also be very suitable for people without children who just want to relax and enjoy the sun sea and sand. The location is ideal for visiting the numerous beauty spots on the island.

Lovely location.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this apartament in June and found it was in a lovely quiet location, just a 15 minute stroll to the centre of Son Bou and the beach. The gardens and pools are well maintained and there is plenty of room for kids to play. The apartment is a good size, the decor and furnishings are a little dated and it could do with a bit more equipment in the kitchen. We were two adults and two children so it was ok but four adults might struggle to find enough crockery etc.

The reception staff at the complex were extremely helpful and the apartment is situated just 2 minutes from reception and an Italian Restaurant. All in all this apartment is good value for money, in a lovely location.

Lovely, peaceful holiday

  • 4 of 5

We've just returned from our holiday in Anne's apartment. We had a fabulous time in Son Bou. The apartment is very airy and spacious and has everything you need. we have a two year old and I panicked when I saw the steps up to the apartment but there's a gate that slots into either side of the wall at the top of the steps which is excellent, making it unbelievably safe for young children. The fan in the apartment is really powerful and we used it in the nights to keep our little un cool in bed. Worked a treat! The apartment is extremely clean and the kitchen and bathroom are newly refurbished. It was lovely to open the doors of the rear verandah and the front doors in the daytime, a lovely breeze came through the apartment... watch the doors don't slam though. There are big stones in the apartment to use as door stops. The apartment has 4 sun loungers with it for the sole use of guests, which is a real bonus as its really relaxing sunbathing in the gardens.

As for the complex of Els Girasols itself, its beautiful and very quiet compared to the other apartment complexes in Son Bou. It is slightly further away from the centre but its marginal. My brother and sister in law were staying in son bou gardens/san jaime complex and it was much noisier. The Els Girasols pool is lovely although the big pool is deep!. The gentleman who cleans the pool and maintains the gardens is meticulous in his job. He spends hours and hours making the grounds and pool look beautiful.

Son Bou is a lovely family resort with lots of great restaurants and bars. The little fair in the centre was amazing for keeping the children occupied in the nights and tiring them out! The beach is AMAZING!!

If I had one teensy grumble it would be that the sofa in the living area of the apartment wasn't the most comfortable. Having a small child, we spent quite a bit of time in the apartment in the evenings and we couldn't really curl up on the sofa. Other than that, we had a fantastic holiday in Anne's apartment and I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a holiday in Son Bou.
