Amy Adejokun Section editor

A calm, serene and fairly luxurious establishment best-suited to those looking for somewhere peaceful to stay. A destination more geared towards couples, the La Quinta is characterised by its good level of services and rather Colonial decor, with a few modern touches thrown in. If you're looking for somewhere relaxing to stay, a far cry from the noisy entertainment associated with more family-oriented club hotels, then this is just the place for you!

    Location 6.0 /10

    The La Quinta is located in the Son Xoriguer development, not far from Ciutadella (around a ten-minute drive away by car), though it is almost a fifty-minute drive away from Mahon airport, on the other side of the island.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    The guest rooms at the La Quinta are accessed via a series of wide and very pleasant corridors, bathed in glorious Menorcan light thanks to the large bay windows which line the corridors and chase out every last hint of gloom that might have existed here.
    The rooms themselves reflect the peaceful harmony of the rest of the establishment, complete with polished wood furniture with, of course, a rather retro-chic feel to it, and decorated in light shades typical of those found in sunny regions.
    The tiled floors bring a touch of freshness to the surroundings, whilst the wicker furniture on the balcony will enable you to enjoy your pool view even more. The only downside, particularly when you bear in mind the standard this hotel strives to achieve, is that the tiling is a red imitation terracotta and not the noble crimson material you might expect. Even the bathrooms (which, with an area of around 10m2, are very spacious) are done out in colourful green tiles. They come with a lovely (although rather traditional) bathtub and the toilets are separate (which is practical). It has to be said, though, that they lose marks for the various soaps and shampoos provided, which don't appear to be of very good quality.
    The surroundings here might be a far cry from the stylish modern design you might expect, but this is an intentional choice designed to reflect the establishment's more romantic colonial style; the decor, including the colour scheme, is entirely subtle and simple.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Rather like an old country home, the four wings of the building overlook a central garden giving the La Quinta Resort a somewhat colonial appearance. The stylish entrance, from where you can see the greenery of the central courtyard, is done out in a combination of wood and tiling in more reddish shades, reminiscent of the colours of the Mediterranean.

    Peace and quiet is an essential part of this establishment, meaning that you'll not find any noisy entertainment here and that families with children are welcome provided that the parents keep a close eye on their young ones and ensure that they don't make any loud noise which is likely to disturb other holiday-makers. A circular swimming pool surrounded by an English-style lawn ? it was, after all, the English who 'colonised' the Balearic Islands some time ago - can be found at the centre of the inner courtyard, which is overlooked by the various buildings which make up the complex.

    This small establishment has only 92 guest rooms and places a great deal of importance on maintaining the uniquely peaceful surroundings of which it is very proud.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The hotel's restaurant is positively colonial in style, done out in slightly retro shades with small alcoves furnished with bench-seats. A set menu is available in the evening. The cuisine served here is typically Spanish, with a few more exotic touches thrown in for a little originality. The dishes are served in an almost 'nouvelle cuisine' style which certainly won't disappoint the taste buds but isn't anything particularly special. The decor here is tasteful, with great attention to detail, the service is extremely meticulous and efficient and there is a wide choice of wines to accompany the innovative but not overly-pretentious cuisine - these are the main aspects which generally sum up the level of service provided by the hotel as a whole.

      The Prestige is the most luxurious hotel on the Insotel Punta Prima complex. The small villas, displaying great attention to detail, have a direct view of the island's lighthouse and stand in the midst of deep-green lawns. All of the neighbouring Insotel club's amenities (spa, tennis courts, semi-Olympic pool) are available to the Prestige's guests. This hotel is designed more for couples than for families.

      The Almirante Farragut comes forth as an ode to the architecture of the 1970's when concrete was a symbol of modernity. It is of course a lot less modern now, but this remains an affordable hotel of good quality suitable for family holidays or breaks with a group of friends.

      From babies to teenagers, this hotel is an invitation to a good family holiday. Needless to say, it is particularly well equipped. The great choice in sports activities makes it adapted for holidays with teenagers (even fussier ones). To sum up, this is a holiday village with high standards, found in the magnificent setting of Punta Prima and its lighthouse. Couples should be aware that this village has a tendency to quickly resemble an immense school ground. Couples without children are now warned!

      An old country house located on inland Minorca, the Morvedra Nou (i.e. the New Morvedra) is an establishment with undeniable charm, located among the olive trees and wilderness of this Mediterranean island. This is a superb hotel, ideally suited for a romantic stay and providing the perfect address for guests who are looking for some nature and relaxation. One would nearly be tempted to keep the place a secret!
