Hotel Santo Tomas is located by the sea in the nice Santo Toms Resort, located in the south coast in Menorca. It is only 25 kms from the airport and from the two main towns Ma and Ciutadella, and the closest village, Es Migjorn Gran, is at only 4 kms of distance.All rooms are provided with full bathroom, air conditioning, direct dial telephone, satellite TV, minibar, safe, hairdryer and balcony. The hotel facilities include an indoor heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam bath, gym, massage and beauty treatment cabins, bar-cafeteria, buffet restaurant and barbecue restaurant by the sea. One can also enjoy the the pool in the garden and the terrace-solarium with nice views over the beach.
We visited in the last week of October and the Hotel closed for the end of the season on the day we left (Sunday 28th). We’d originally booked for the new Hotel55 SantoTomas but that Hotel closed a week earlier. The resort of SantoTomas has little to offer in terms of restaurants, activities or nightlife even in peak season and in late October it is very, very quiet with the local supermarkets also preparing to close for the end of season. Having said that, the Malibu cafe (which is on the beachfront immediately in front of the Hotel and run by the Hotel) is excellent for snacks/pizzas etc. If you book here in the knowledge that all you’re after is a quiet, relaxing holiday then I would recommend it very highly. The number of guests who were regulars, returning year after year, is a testament to the high standards of customer service, hygiene and facilities on offer. The guest demographic probably is slightly different in peak season but in October it was predominantly over 60’s and mainly couples. The location is without doubt the best in the resort and the “sea view” rooms are exactly that, literally 10 yards to the beach from the (beautifully maintained) hotel pool and gardens. Even though the Hotel was far from fully occupied the buffet breakfast and dinner had ample choices on offer and a good variety throughout the week. Service in the restaurant was particularly good with some nice personal touches such as when my wife and I couldn’t decide whether to have a bottle of red or white wine and Juan Ramon offered to recork and keep half bottles (for the following evening) should we get a bottle of each. The indoor pool and jacuzzi were both in excellent condition and ideal for when the weather wasn’t great. Very cheap bus service to Mahon/Cuitadella, less than 4 euros for about an hour’s journey to each, but be aware that the last bus back to SantoTomas is at 7pm. In summary, a great hotel in a fantastic beachfront location but be aware that it is only suitable if you want a quiet holiday.
Perfect hotel, perfect location, perfect staff. No more is needed. Visited as part of my wife's birthday. the flowers in the room were amazing and the upgrade to the sea view superior room was totally unexpected but speaks volumes of the service this hotel gives to it's guests. Thank you.
Our second visit this year May and October holiday each year at the Santo Tomas it is absolutely superb .The staff from reception to the housekeeping and restaurant could do no more They are all helpful kind and nothing is too much trouble even the grounds staff.A special thanks to Alex, Mafi and Will in reception also Joanne in the bar not forgetting Raymond .The hotel is a credit to all the staff we look forward to returning in May next year!
We booked a package through TUI. This was our first visit to Hotel Santo Tomas, although not our first to Santo Tomas resort, having been many times in the last 40 years. The TUI information folder was woefully inadequate in the information supplied on this particular hotel or resort. This was more than compensated by the ever helpful hotel staff.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our holiday which was made extra special by the staff, thanks to Alba, Alex, Juan Ramon, Will, Mafe and all the staff in the dining room. They helped to make our stay memorable.
First impressions were good, we were greeted warmly, assisted with our cases and offered a glass of chilled cava while we registered. Our room was behind reception and our initial misgivings that this might be noisy were unfounded. We had a wonderful fortnight's stay. The room was roomy enough for two of us with a balcony and a sea view (as detailed in the TUI brochure). A complimentary bottle of water on arrival with a kettle with tea bags (6), coffee sachets (2) and biscuits (4) which were replenished every day. Initially we thought that drawer space was sparse, with only two drawers each, but with the shelves in the wardrobe we managed fine. I took some extra hangers which I managed to hook alongside those supplied. There was a free safe in the wardrobe. A wall mounted TV and a list of the channels available in the welcome book with English speaking channels Sky News, BBC1 & 2 and CH4. The air conditioning was quiet and effective. The FREE WiFi worked excellently throughout our stay.
The shower room was newly refurbished and modern, a choice of handheld or rainforest shower heads and complimentary toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and shower gel) in addition to complimentary nail file, comb and shower cap. In addition there was hand wash gel at the hand basin and a shower/shampoo gel in the shower. A hair drier was stored under the basin. The water was always hot. The local water left our skin and hair incredibly silky soft.
The meals are buffet, self service style. Guests can have a reserved table indoors or a choice of table on the open air but roofed terrace, which was very pleasant in late September. Breakfast was a choice of continental, cooked English, Spanish, waffles, cereal, fruit or yoghurt. Omelettes, fried eggs and pancakes cooked to order. A good selection of breads, fresh fruit and yoghurts are available. Tea and coffee was served at the table by the ever attentive waiting staff. Evening meals, also buffet, had a good range of meats and fish in various sauces with show grilling cuts of both fish and meat each night, again a wide selection of breads and a good choice of fruit and desserts. We always found several dishes to our taste. Should you wish alternative dining the hotel has sister establishments in resort and throughout Menorca and guests can ask to transfer their evening meal to any of these by asking at reception.
A spa is available for free, although during our stay in late September the weather was so good, we didn’t take up the offer of a steam, jacuzzi or sauna. Treatments are available for a fee.
The pool area has plenty of sunbeds with no need for the reservation debacle so loved by the British, although there are always some who sneak their towels on to their favourite spot at some ungodly hour. Pool towels are available for a deposit of €10.
The evening entertainment was variable in quality and held three times a week. We personally didn’t care for the way the shows were held at the Malibu Bar, a public beachside bar associated with the hotel. So if we wished to watch the acts, but didn’t want to eat or drink, we had to sit on the promenade to avoid being pressured to buy. Sitting at the stage in the bar you were made to feel uncomfortable by the waiting staff if you didn’t buy something. This opinion was voiced to us by a number of other guests.
All in all we had an excellent stay and are planning to book this hotel again next year.
Great location and a lovely hotel. We had a lovely room on the 3rd floor with sea views and a lovely little balcony. Throughout the hotel the staff were really friendly and very helpful when required.The quality and choice of food was also very good. Would certainly go back.

I was informed by a local friend that Santo Tomàs in the summer is a mainly ‘English ‘ resort .wThere are several mini markets and a couple of bars. There is a bar attached to the crazy golf and entertainment area but don’t go on the golf as it is very run down and needs a revamp. As for the Hotel Santo Tomàs this is a 4* superior. I don’t know what it’s like during the summer but when we were there in October (out of the school holidays) the hotel clientele was mainly advanced in years with no children. There are plenty of sun beds in the garden area around the pool and no music was played. If you want to be allocated a table for dinner then you need to ask the head waiter and he will allocate. Alternatively you can sit on the veranda anywhere. The restaurant is big enough for the number of guests. If your granddaughter is ‘lively ‘ then the hotel may not be for her but if she is happy to relax and read a book etc then it would probably be ok.
Hope this helps
