“Amazing hotel in Menorca”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2012

I booked this hotel for our five year anniversary solely based on the reviews on tripadvisor. I am happy to report that it did not disappoint. In fact, Sa Barrera was one of the highlights of my trip. Hillary, the hotel manager, was one of the most friendliest staff members I have ever had the pleasure to meet. She bent over backwards to make our stay pleasant. The rest of the staff was just as friendly and happy to help at any moment. I had emailed them a while back letting them know we were celebrating an anniversary and they made sure to give us a room with an amazing view of the pool and sea. The room was tiny indeed, but we honestly did not spend much time in there other than to sleep. The bed was probably more on the uncomfortable side but it wasn't like I didn't get any sleep or anything.

The hotel is actually owned by Italians and had an on site Italian restaurant where the food was to die for! Completely authentic and delicious. The best part was that they served us during siesta time when other restaurants on the island were closed.

The beach is literally 5 minutes away and has the prettiest water I have ever seen.

I could go on and on about how much I loved my stay at this hotel but I'll stop now. If you're planning on visiting this island, stay at this hotel. It was worth every single penny.

P.S. The first time we ate at the hotel's restaurant, Hillary remembered merely by my email, which I had sent at least 2 months prior, that it was our anniversary and they gave us a cute little dessert to celebrate.

Room Tip: Tell them in advance that you want a room facing the pool and the sea. The view is breathtaking.

My husband & I stayed here for 7 nights at the end of May 2012 and we cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Sa Barrera is a pretty and intimate hotel in a great location. 15 minutes in a taxi from Mahon Airport, 5 minutes walk from beach (mind the stairs!) and 15 - 20 minutes walk from Cova d'en Xoroi.

All staff were so cheerful, welcoming and out of the way helpful, the service wonderful. There is a good selection served for breakfast and the onsite restaurant serves absolutely delicious Italian food for lunch and dinner.

We spent a lot of time poolside and the area was very quiet and un-crowded. At most there were two other couples enjoying the pool with us at any one time so there were always poolside lounges available.

The hotel is targeted at adults and does not allow children under 12. During our visit there were only adult guests at the hotel, mostly couples, and guests were of all ages.

Points were deducted from our total score as my husband would have liked to see some gym facilities in this adults only hotel, and also because there was a slight smell of damp in the room due to lack of ventilation in the bathroom.

Room Tip: Make sure to ask for a room overlooking the pool. Most do, but we did notice some rooms above the ho...

This is a GREAT hotel - the staff are so lovely, the most helpful and gracious I've come across, the food outstanding - freshly made and very competitively priced. Delicious breakfast and excellent pool area. Very peaceful and relaxing (apart from the incessantly smoking Germans!).

I really want to give 5 stars for the hotel but our only niggle was the beds were a little bit hard, and rather than being a double bed, it was 2 pushed together. Really not major issues, but would have been nicer to have been a double.

There are no children at this hotel - an absolute dream....

Can't recommend it enough - stay there, you won't regret it. Thanks Sa Barerra for a brilliant week!

Room Tip: They all face the pool and the beach - upstairs might give you a better view, but they're all ve...

Wonderful small and quiet Hotel. The italo-iberian food of the half board menu has been outstandingly good with daily choices of 3 appetizers, 3 main courses and 2 desserts.

Family owned and managed Hotel by a charming and efficient Team which pampers its clients each with an individual approch. Kudos and many thanks to Signor Roberto, the Cheffe Franca, the waitress Ilary and Maid Jessie.

As a mature couple we spent a week visiting the different parts of Menorca with a rented car and we have been delighted to come back home every evening and being welcomed in family style manner.

I can really recommend this nice Hotel for your stay in Menorca.

We stayed here for 2 nights 2 years ago while we waited for our villa to be vacated . The room was spotless , The manager was very attenitive , The pool area is also very spotless and had lovely sun loungers , when we came to book out of the hotel we had booked a taxis , having waited for nearly an hour the manager asked if he could drop us , as we had told him we staying in calen porter for another week . Now that is what you call CUSTOMER SERVICE.
