Advice on resorts and hotels for a young couple...

I'd like to get some advice about resorts and hotels. We are a couple in our 20s looking for a nice boutique-esque hotel and are looking to visit in late June. We want to avoid hotels that cater for package holidays and would prefer somewhere that was small and intimate but not completely basic - preferably a place that offered breakfast but self catering would be fine.

I have been looking into Cala Galdana but wanted some advice as to whether this is suitable for a couple wanting a quiet and romantic holiday, with some nice restaurants and bars?

If not then where would people suggest we look into visiting. We are looking to go for 10 days so staying in a couple of different areas of the island is also an option.

Thanks in advance for the advice!

You do not say whether you want to be in a resort or not, but if you want to be in an inland, more Spanish environment you could look at the Hotel Es Mercadal or the Jeni in Mercadal. The new hotel at Sant Patrici on the outskirts of Ferreries also looks nice. If you are looking for basic but very atmospheric bed and breakfast, the restaurant S,Engolidor in Es Migjorn has 4 very traditional rooms at very reasonable rates.

The grounds of Hort de Sant Patrici are open to the public as part of the cheesemaking establishment there - very peaceful but I believe that the hotel is quite expensive - I found this site via a google search menorcahotelsguide.com/meFront/… I believe that Jon the Dog can tell you about Hotel Jeni so he will no doubt pick up on your posting idc. We have dined several times at S'Engolidor in Es Migorn ( also known as 58s) & the food is excellent. I know that it also does B&B but do not know anyone who has stayed there -here is a link to its website http://www.sengolidor.com/index_uk.htm

I'd say for at least half your stay have a look at staying here:

While I'd put the above at the top of your list, as mentioned the Jeni is also a good bet and has some good deals if you go half board.

Another place to mention is the Xuroy in Alcufar. Very peaceful location, lovely little beach on the doorstep and near enough to S'algar for a meal out. Might be good for a night or 3.
