My wife and I will be visiting Minorca from Sept 7-10 as part of our honeymoon. I've decided (but not yet booked) a room at the Binigaus Vell just south of Es Migjorn Gran.
Here are some questions:
1. There is only one review on this hotel on TA - has anyone heard anything about it? I read that it just opened in May. I'm quite keen on it, but wanted to make sure before I paid anything.
2. We plan to rent a car to explore some other parts of the island (prehistoric sites, citudella, mahon) and need to know what the most reliable booking agent is and what I should expect to pay for 3 days. Also, I'm assuming I should get the car at the airport rather than a taxi and car drop at the hotel.
3. I haven't been able to find much on Migjorn Gran. We'd like to dine away from the hotel one night, but have the option of walking home after dinner (no drinking and driving to be safe). Are there any restaurants in town there?
4. I believe the Festives Graces is taking place in Mahon during our stay. I've read/seen some things that make me believe it may not be a good idea for visitors to attend (rearing horses and the like), but my wife and I love getting a true sense of a culture we are visiting, so if you have any knowledge of the festival as it relates to tourists, please share.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! We're so excited to visit this amazing place.
