With our partner easyJet Holidays, these are the best seaside hotels and family-friendly resorts in Menorca
Melia Cala Galdana
Best for… desert island dreaming
Set on a stretch of bone-white sand within the gorgeous Cala Galdana bay, one of the most picturesque resorts in Menorca, this sophisticated hotel promises a Bali-style break without the flight time. As well as a private beach club, adult-only pools and more fine-dining options than a Masterchef final, it's surrounded by a mighty 2.5 acres of private gardens – and beyond that, wild Mediterranean forest. Paradise is practically on your doorstep.

Palladium Hotel Menorca
Best for… incredible views
Practise your panoramic photography before you get to this spectacular modern hotel, which sits atop a hill in the middle of a nature reserve, overlooking the pristine Arenal d’en Castell beach. The good news is you never have to tear yourself away from the incredible vista: the hotel is literally built into the view, which you can soak up (or, let’s be honest, post to Instagram) from its many sleek pools, terraces and restaurants.

Best for… family breaks
Set your family up in their own private Mediterranean-style villa apartment – then escape to one of the five or six pristine beaches nearby while they suss out the water slides, kids’ pools and playground. Even the fussiest eaters will be happy here: the buffet is extensive, and – while the apartments are prepped for self-catering – you’ll struggle to keep kids, or grown-ups, away from the on-site pizzeria. The nearby port city of Ciutadella, with its picturesque old quarter, makes a splendid day trip if you need a break from the sunlounger.

Alua Illa de Menorca
Best for… active families
Perfect if your kids – or grown-ups – need a little more bounce in their beach break. From scuba diving to football and tennis, this sporty little number packs a huge amount around its pristine outdoor pool. The wellness-orientated spa is designed to help you rest and relax, as is the kids’ evening mini-disco, perfectly timed to get grown-ups off the hook and into one of its smart restaurants or bars. The surrounding beaches and pretty coastal towns are ideal for excursions.

Grupotel Aldea Cala n Bosch
Best for.... cocktails by the sea
Rest and relax on the Riviera at this glam, beachfront hotel, where there’s nothing but towering palm trees between you and the ocean. Its crisp, Mediterranean-style rooms are laid out like a villa: the manicured lawns that lead from your terrace or the chic ocean-view bar to the pool feel like an extension of your apartment’s own garden. This is the kind of resort where you’ll want to dress for dinner - but don’t miss out on western Menorca’s spectacular view of sunset.

Carema Club Resort
Best for… adventurous family getaways
Tucked away amid the green hills of the ruggedly beautiful northern coast, and within walking distance of the beach, the shaded trails and warm clay paths of this lovely place open out onto pools, water parks (pirate-themed!), mini-golf and volleyball courts. If that all sounds exhausting, there’s plenty to help you recuperate, from the laidback restaurants and bars to beachside barbecues at the alfresco grill.

Royal Son Bou Family Club
Best for... fun-loving families
Menorca’s ultimate family resort manages, somehow, to leave enough space between the kids’ labyrinth, bouncy castle and baking classes for grownups to have fun too – whether your idea of fun is on-site CrossFit, a giant bowl of pasta at the Mediterranean-inspired restaurant, or a double gin and tonic at the smart hotel bar. The range of on-site entertainment is incredible, including everything from mini discos to magic shows. Sandy Son Bou beach, excellent for snorkelling, is on the doorstep.
Playa de Son Bou, s/n, 07730Book easyJet Holidays
Best for… romantic getaways
You know it’s a grown-up hotel when the stylish lounge bar promises all-day cocktails. Get away from it all at this adults-only resort, where everything – from the private tiled apartments to the parasol-shaded lounger pairs – feels secluded and sophisticated. The huge, palm-lined pool is at the heart of this chic hotel; if you run out of reading material or need a change of scene head to the nearby port town of Ciutadella and lose yourself in its romantic medieval streets.
