We recently returned from a weeks holiday here and were more than happy about every aspect of our stay. Arrived late at night but were able to get eats and drinks in the Gondola Restaurant by reception. As we were in Zone 5 and just behind reception this was a Godsend!! Sebastien the manager of the Gondola bar couldn't do enough for us. Location of apartments/gardens etc were perfect. All clean, well kept surroundings, friendly staff at reception and Lee and Amanda our reps to be congratulated. Lots of privately owned apartments by the Spanish who were so friendly and advised us of the best places to visit during our stay. Would most certainly return without a doubt. Safe, reliable place that you would ever want to holiday!! Thank you Son Bou Gardens for a wonderful stay.!!!

We spent 4 nights at these apartments,first floor room 120 in zone 5. Balcony overlooked the marshes and we had a lovely unhindered sea view. Rooms were clean and nicely decorated. Unlike some other apartments we've stayed in tea towels, washing up liquid and scourer were supplied which was handy. There was also an iron available in the room. We were told by email that a hair dryer could be hired but on asking at reception none were available so I had to go au natural with frizzy hair for a couple of days (if I'd known they were subject to availability I would have taken my own). We could park right outside the room which was a real bonus. The surrounding grounds were very attractive as was the pool area to zone 5. Barman was very friendly and we could get wifi there (we couldn't get it in our room). All in all an excellent apartment complex - we can't comment on the restaurant or entertainment though as we didn't visit them. Son Bou was a pretty quiet resort, not many restaurants or bars but there was enough choice and if you wanted a 3 course set meal then the prices were very reasonable. If we stayed longer than 4 nights we would probably have driven out to another town to get a more authentic Menorcan meal. The beach was absolutely fab - loads of space and haven driven around looking at other smaller beaches and coves we always returned to the Son Bou beach as it was far superior to the other ones. We want to return next June for longer!

Went there for 1 week in June 2015, what can I say - absolutely fantastic. When we arrived at the reception we were greeted with lovely smiling happy faces. We were given our key and directed to our apartment. No 135 in zone 3. 3 Bedrooms on the ground floor 2 Bathrooms. Micro, toaster, kettle, cooker and oven, Iron, Free TV and large garden. Flat was not the Ritz but we were all presently surprised as it is rated a 2 Star. The complex is Massive, a lot more spread out than it looked in the brochure. It said it is right on the beach, this is partially true, it is across the road but is separated by a nature reserve, so to get access you have to walk into town- 10 mins to get access to the beach. There are 3 pools and 3 restaurants and I can assure you they are all fantastic- or better. you pay between 2.50 and 5 euro for a bed but worry not, you get a voucher and you can spend the whole lot on food drink etc. So it really cost nothing. The entertainment at the complex is second to none, big shows, great singers and loads for the kids to do, all sorts of machines to play on. The town of Son Bou is a short stroll of about 10 mins depending on where you are in the complex, worst 15 Mins. Son Bou is a very small resort 2 Doz Restaurants, Same number of Pubs. You have live music in some pubs, Lovely friendly atmosphere in the resort, loads for kids. The beach is to die for, would be hard to beat. You have no Wi Fi in rooms but free in all restaurants and bars. One last point my son had a very expensive t shirt went missing from his room, only cleaners had been in, Just a warning!

Just returned from a week's stay here, had a great break with my husband and 2 year old son. We stayed in Zone 4 at Son Bou Gardens, I requested a first floor apt which we got, so that was a great start! It was start of the season, but seemed lovely and quiet the whole week. The only noise was from Club Saint Jaime's daily evening entertainment, not our thing, which seemed unnecessarily loud from 8-11pm and out of keeping with such a quiet resort. I'm amazed the locals put up with it! It didn't affect our stay just a mild annoyance really. The location was great, everything was easy to reach within 5 minutes, helpful when you have an unruly toddler! The beach is a slight detour but only took us 10 minutes and the boardwalks down to the beach make it much easier with a pushchair. The pools were all great and well kept, we favoured the one in zone 5 as it was a short walk & my son liked the kids section. Such a beautiful beach too! Very clean and safe for swimming. My husband got stung by a jellyfish at 5pm just as the tide had turned and was coming in. We put this down to very bad luck as we'd been in the sea all afternoon & not seen a single one. The lifeguard said it was very rare. Yes the apartments are basic, but ours was very clean and had everything needed for a self catering place, including a bottle opener & scissors! Towels were also provided, which was a nice surprise. Ceiling fans were great, and having the two balconies means you can get a nice breeze circulating through the apt. Maid service once a week which was fine with us, I prefer to be left in peace! You can request extra pillows (we did) which arrived same day. The beds are hard, but not a problem for us. Our favourite restaurants were Allesandros, fabulous Italian food and Casa Andrés for delicious authentic paella. There's a lovely ice cream parlour next to Arthur's with exquisite ice creams, our son loved it. Both were fantastic with my son, he made a lot of mess (and noise!) but they were very welcoming & provided colouring pencils & paper to occupy him. Overall we found everything very good value for money, except Sangria - watch out, we got charged €14 for a jug at Club Saint Jaime, which I find ridiculous, but seemed to be similar everywhere. Our son loved the Thomas Train which circled the resort, a great activity for the kids if you need a change from the beach/pool. The playgrounds scattered through the gardens are brilliant too, Overall a great place for a quiet family holiday, it was so relaxing and easy! Can't wait to return.

Tourist Information

Weather

If fun in the sun sounds good to you, then you should think about taking your holidays in Son Bou between June and August. June is the coolest month of these three, with temperatures averaging 24° Celsius, but if you want to enjoy the very peak of a Mediterranean summer then July and August will certainly make that so! Temperatures in summer reach an average of 30° Celsius with 10 hours of sun a day, with virtually no rainfall.

Should you find the head a bit too much, or just aren't a sun-worshipper yourself, then Son Bou holidays in April or May are a great idea. Temperatures then are about 20° Celsius during the day, so still very warm, but with more southwesterly winds you'll find yourself much more comfortable. Whatever time you take your holidays to Son Bou, do be sure to look out for the Red and Green flags on the beaches, as the current can be strong.
