We know that you might be feeling uncertain about booking your next holiday with the ever-changing travel restrictions, which is why we've introduced our Travel Restrictions Guarantee for your peace of mind.
Book your next villa holiday with confidence, safe in the knowledge that you can either move your dates or receive a holiday voucher for the full amount paid if your travel dates are restricted by either FCDO/local government advice advice or local restrictions in your destination country.*
The Travel Restrictions Guarantee is automatically included in the website price and can be removed before you book, however we strongly advise you keep it to give you added flexibility and protection.
You will still need to purchase a comprehensive travel insurance policy as soon as your booking is confirmed. This insurance should, as a minimum, protect you against cancellation, curtailment, medical expenses, loss/theft of possessions and documents, personal liability and airline failure.

If being close to a beach is a must, then a Son Bou villa holiday is the ideal choice! Boasting the longest stretch of sand on the island of over 2 kilometres, this traditional resort ticks all the boxes for a family getaway. A car isn't necessary during your Son Bou villa holiday, as this small resort has a selection of shops, bars and restaurants which all cater for children, and there’s even a mini-train which runs through the town. Positioned on the south coast of Menorca, Son Bou is within close proximity of both vibrant Mahón and the old capital of Ciutadella.
Excellent position 10min into town, lovely pool. Not quite sure about sleeping 11/12 the extra bed was pull out and only suitable for a child. The onsuite with balcony was to die for. You need to be very careful of some of the steps, especially those from the pool onto the main steps.

The villa was beautiful. Pool even better. Cleaners came 3 times brilliant. The view from the villa and pool was amazing. Very very pleased with everything. Kelly the Rep. Kept in touch and sorted any problems we had immediately. Menorca Vacations are certainly on the ball, and sorted every little problem.

Pro:The pool was magnificent. The view out to see was fantastic. Villa well equipped. Con: The seating in the living room was uncomfortable and stained also would be better arranged if it were facing the view to sea and not the back wall for the TV. If you do not have a car the hill to the villa is steep, so you will need to reasonably fit to carry shopping etc to the villa.

Overall we were very pleased with the villa and all the facilities. all the rooms very spacious and the ensuite bathroom in the master bedroom is huge! Very well equipped kitchen and helpful staff, from the property manager to the Menorca vacation staff. The view from the poolside is amazing. Only small issue is that the pillows should be changed ( in all rooms) as their are way too thin and some of us couldn't sleep properly.

This is a beautiful villa, the views from many of the rooms are breathtaking. Facilities are good, the villa had everything we needed and was lovely and clean. There is mention the website that there are lots of steps up to the villa, that is true but none of us had a problem, I think you would have to be quite infirm not be be able to manage. The in-resort staff were particularly good, we arrived early on Friday and they arranged for us to get into our villa at lunchtime (with no extra charge). They also very quickly sorted out a problem with the dishwasher in the villa. Villa Santa Cruz is very close to the amenities of Son Bou and yet is located on a quiet street in a very nice residential area so it felt very peaceful. I could not fault the villa, the service was impressive and we had a lovely holiday.

The outside of the villa was ideal, the pool, seating area and sea view. Inside there was plenty of room and the kitchen was well stocked. The villa was beautifully clean and we enjoyed a lovely week at the end of the season.

Loads of space, there was 8 of us and a baby and had plenty of room with 1 bedroom totally unused! Could do with some citronella candles putting around as when we first opened the door it was full of flies, we had to buy fly spray and candles to sort them out. Could do with more towels or them being changed more frequently. The pool needs to be heated, it was far too cold for my baby to get in which was a disappointment. Lovely views,

We had an amazing holiday - we knew the weather may be cooler but lucky for us the weather was very good. The villa was beautiful with amazing views over Son Bou beach and beyond.The villa had everything we required -it was very clean and nothing was required more. The agents office were very helpful especially as we arrived early and managed to get us in the villa earlier than we should have had it. The villa was built into the hillside and therefore there was many steps from the road so not suitable for any people who may struggle with this . The villa is in easy reach for all local facilities in the resort - walkable you don't need a car - but Menorca has so many off the beaten track places to visit so I would suggest the car is essential.

Plenty of room in the Villa for a family of 11. Excellent pool. Stunning views. Everything we needed in Villa, it was like home from home. Short walk to restaurants, shops and bars. Would highly recommend Villa Santa Cruz. Location was brilliant too.

Spacious villa, with a lovely pool and comfortable outside furniture. Ideally situated, not too far from amenities. The only real problem was uncomfortable beds, the mattresses were so hard. Great resort for families with young children, lovely beach.

loved the villa everything you need for a family holiday except if you've got small children in pushchairs as there are quiet a few steps up to the villa

Very nice! It is not a "Villa"..... it is a little "Palace"! Son Bou is beautiful, quiet and the beach is wonderful.

Villa was absolutely stunning! Even better than the pictures on-line. Location fantastic, only a 2 minute walk to the nearest amenities. Resort was very family friendly, which we loved. Extremely clean and well maintained. Small resort but a good selection of bars, restaurants and shops. Beach very beautiful, especially if you walk along a bit further. Water clear and blue. Would definitely recommend both villa and resort.

The villa was large with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms and room to move around. There were various places to eat, both inside and outside. The pool area was very good, but we would have liked some sun umbrellas in the garden, as there was quite a few of us and we couldn't all fit under the shade that was there. The other to was this house is not suitable for people with walking difficulties as there are too many steps up to the villa. The villa is also great for walking distance to the shops, eating out and the beach.

Rated Excellent. This was the nicest self-catering accommodation that we have ever stayed in. The villa was of a very high standard throughout and the pool and views were the standout features. Our group was made up of 6 adults and 4 children aged 3 years - 10 years and it suited us perfectly.
