Is Minorca chic?

Found a new gorgeous hotel I'd like to stay at but is Minorca chic? Eclectic? Or is it just families with kids looking for beer and bacon. I hated Majorca because of the type of tourists I came across ..... Although where we stayed in Deia was nice.

London, United...

It can be in places, I would have to say the same about Majorca too. The wealthy on Menorca are not about showing off and celebrity spanish visitors go to Menorca also for that reason. What is the hotel and where? Cala Longa/Sant Antoni is where the chic is mostly at home.

You are bound to get replies on this but WHERE in Menorca is this hotel ( name of hotel/website etc.) because the answer is "Yes in the right places and NO if you pick the wrong type of package beach resorts". For example the town of Ciutadella is lovely ( Moorish architecture, local vibe etc. -see tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g187464-i494-k55… for an idea of what it offers) but some of the resorts falling within its postal zone are clearly not at all what you have said that you want.

There is a Top Question specifically about country house hotels but this will not cover them all because there are lots scattered all across the island - these places are not in the package resort areas and tend to be expensive. There are also one or two Top Questions with links to information websites which might help you.

The chic stay in villas inland or rural hotels. Not many of them any more. They go further afield. If you didn't like Deia, Valledemosa and nortern Mallorca can't see you liking Menorca.
