We stayed here during October half term. When we booked we were not made aware that not all of the pools and restaurants would be open. We arrived on the Saturday. On the Monday two out of the three pools (along with the restaurants next to them) closed. This meant that everyone had to use just one pool!! If we... More

I stayed at the Son Bou Gardens a week from 24/10/16. The weather was much better than I expected. Nice and hot in the day and cooler in the evenings. The apartments are in well kept gardens and are spacious and clean however this complex is much bigger than I thought and there were hardly any guests and it t,... More

These apartments aren't great. Not terrible but definitely only just average. The one my family and I stayed in smelt musty, had very very old furnishings, was dusty and looked as though it hadn't been stayed in for months. The tv did not work, the bedroom light didn't work, the bathroom had the bottom apartments cooking smell coming through a... More

We had a week here in October. It was relaxing, a quiet resort close to restaurants & shops. It was a short bus ride into Mahon which was busier but had a better range of shops. Apartment was clean & well equipped.

Quite a nice place and a very good bus service. Very friendly staff and never to busy. I did think 15 euros for two sun beds on the beach each day was a bit steep though. On the whole a good experience and a very nice resort that wasn't too busy.

I stayed for the half term week with my two children (6 and 8 years) and my mum (who will remain ageless) in Zone 5: next to the reception (only open 10am-2pm ish daily; has a handy free book exchange area) and the 'mushroom' pool & bar/restaurant, run by a nice gent called Sebastian. Zone 5 suited us because, although... More

We were a little confused by the various reviews that made it look if people either love or hate this place. Now we’ve been there, we understand the issue. Son Bou Gardens is a huge apartment complex which spreads out for about a mile along a road that runs parallel to the beach, which is about half a mile away.... More

We have just returned after a fantastic week in Minorca staying at the Son Bou. The apartments were basic but clean and in a good location. There was 12 in our party and we had apartments together. Our apartments were 2 bedrooms and apart from a couple of minor issues which were resolved immediately the party of 6 adults and... More

Stayed here Oct 2016 for 11 nights. I have been here before so knew what to expect. It was really quiet and even before the UK school half term, they were closing parts of the development for the season.mvery much under occupancy and I think that a lot more of the apartments are privately owned. I had a two bed... More

With fabulous pools and just a short walk to the beautiful sandy beach we love to enjoy a glass of sangria and a meal at the restaurant on the beach, over looking the sand dunes and the sea whilst the sun sets, beautiful.
