“Holiday”
Reviewed 13 May 2013

What fantastic apartments these are, clean, well equipped. Four pools, entertainment every night.
Five minutes from other bars, bowling alley, cabaret bar, and beach. Excellent value for money.
The beach is out standing and goes on for miles. Be carefull as some parts of the beach are nudist. Went sept 2011 weather very hot. Just got round to doing a review.

Room Tip: All rooms are well located.

These apartments are clean and spacious and close to the beach. The beach has beautiful white sand and shallow water which is great for kids. There is plenty to do as there are shops for the women, bars for the men and children's play areas for the kids so you won't be disappointed.

We have just returned from the Son Bou Playa which is part of the same complex as San Jaime. The apartment was ideal for us and the gardens are well kept ,but where it was situated left a bit to be desired as it was about a mile to walk to the bars and resturants for the evening and also to get to the beach. The area was delightful, and it was easy to get a bus any where you wanted to go on the island. Sadly the down side was the basic equiptment in the apartments, saucepans with wobbly handle , no kettle etc. The pool had very uncomfortable sunbeds and was very shallow making it dificult to swim in. The supermarkets locally were very overpriced and did not have a lot of choice. On the whole it was an enjoyable place to stay, but it would have been better to be prewarned about the amount of walking it would involve

Our fourth visit to this great complex and I cannot believe some of the negative comments. We stayed in a privately owned apartment but have also stayed in others on the complex in the past. Yes it is a small town but then Menorca is a small island and I suggest most resorts are fairly small. There are at least a dozen restaurants serving decent food plus the excellent San Jaime club which does good food and nightly entertainment (mostly "tribute" acts) and the staff are great.
If you really must get away there is an hourly bus service to the capital which takes around 30 mins and costs 2.45 euro.
In our experience, the supermarket on the complex is probably the cheapest for most things (there are 3 others in the town). Yes, it is expensive if you want British goods but a large (often still warm) baguette is 1 euro, 8 litres of water 1.70 euro, litre of sangria 1.30 euro.
The charge for sunbeds round the pool at least discourages large families from taking over most of them for their kids who hardly use them.
Noise from the club? It's not Ibiza with boom boom boom till 6am. The latest it finished was 11.30 in our experience.
All this and only a 20 minute taxi ride from the airport, plus a beach to die for. What more do you want from a relaxing holiday?

We returned yesterday from Son Bou Playa which is part of the San Jamie complex. All i can say to anyone intending to go is

IGNORE THE NEGATIVE REPORTS

The complex and apartments are spotless. The entertainment was great. The weather was HOT.

A holiday is what you make it and ours was SUPERB!!!!!!!!

There are a few things to consider before you go to Son Bou, first and most important is the fact that once you arrive ,you will be stuck in a small town with a few shops, restaurants and very expensive supermarkets.The only way to escape is by hiring a car [ very very expensive] by taxi ,5 euros per kilometre, or by bus which only goes to Mahon the capital and transfer from there.We have only just returned and the exchange rate in the resort is basically one for one,so just take these prices as sterling
sun bed by the pool £3
sun bed on the beach £17 per day
hire an electric kettle £11 per week
sliced loaf in supermarket £4
small bag of walkers crisps by the pool £1.50
small bottle of water £1.50
There are three cafes on the beach that are dearer still
Do not be put off Son bou ,the beach is fantastic and the town itself is spotlessly clean
but if you are going self catering ,try and take whatever you can with you ,there are a lot of things that they dont mention in the brochure ,so be prepared for a few surprises ,like the fact that even the water slide by the pool will cost £1 a go ,Enjoy

Cute apartment complex in a nice area very close to San Bou beach (longest sand beach on the island). Unfortunately the nearby Club San Jaime does (very loud) live performances every night (may-september) making it impossible to sit outside and enjoy the evening. The nearby restaurants do not offer anything special, they are fine for a quick bite. The apartment was very clean and well equipped (electric kitchen stove/oven, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, toaster, electric iron, TV) and the terrace was great in the morning for breakfast. Unfortunately, due to the noise from the nearby Club San Jaime in the evening we cannot recommend this apartment complex in high season (at least those apartments near the club which is located at Passeig del Prat and Carrer Sant Jaume Medit - on google earth you will see a blue giant water slide nearby).
