Sol Beach House Menorca

Santo Tomas beach Menorca Spain
Sol Beach House was our "base camp" in Menorca. It belongs to the prestigious Melia Hotels International group. We are members of their rewards program so when we travel we always check out Melia hotels first. In today's post I'm going to tell you why we chose this hotel and why you should choose it too.

Let me tell you about the characteristics of this hotel first: 
  • It's not big for a beach hotel, it only has 180 rooms.
  • It's adults only, just guests 16+ can check in.
  • It's located on the beach front of Santo Tomas and at walking distance from the town's bars and shops.
  • The rooms have a private balcony with stunning views of the sea.
  • They offer half-board with buffet for breakfast and dinner.
  • They focus on health and fitness. They offer activities like Pilates and yoga and serve organic healthy food.
  • Parking is 8€/day but you can always find free parking close by.

As soon as we arrived we fell in love with its laid-back, chilled atmosphere. I've always been a fan of the art deco buildings in Miami and this place reminded me so much of them. Minimalist decoration characterizes the rooms and that turquoise color everywhere made me think of the crystal-clear water of Menorca all the time. I'm not going to lie, the fact that this place is highly instagrammable influenced our decision to book it.

Positivity is all around at Sol Beach House, only good vibes are allowed. There are quotes framed in the corridors to remind you of that. Tranquility is also present in every single corner, the fact that it's a small hotel and adults only makes it a perfect place to relax. Our favorite spots were the pool -there's a 50cm deep area where you can just sit and cool down- and the beach beds where we spent hours reading undisturbed.

Another strong point of this Melia Hotel is their commitment to the environment. You can find recycling baskets where you can throw away glass, plastic containers and paper which is something I always miss when I travel. This is the first hotel I've been to where you can recycle.

As foodies, a very important part of our vacation is obviously food. We loved the different concept of buffet at Sol Beach House. They explained that it's inspired by food markets and it consists of themed food stalls. For instance, you can find a stall that is a salad bar, another one to make cheese and cold meat platters and another one with hot dishes. They offer mainly Mediterranean cuisine but also international -sushi lovers, there's also a food stall for you. Oh! and there's also show-cooking, you can get fresh meat and fish cooked right away. All you have to do is grab what you like and enjoy your meal with sea views. This activity, my friends, is one of my favorite things in the world.

Once you are outside, you have Menorca at your feet. Santo Tomas is located in the south of the island, more or less in the middle and nothing is far away (Google Maps). You don't need to move if you don't want to, the beach of Santo Tomas is considered one of the best in Menorca. White sand, turquoise water and breathtaking sunsets guaranteed.Santo Tomas beach Menorca Spain

  12. Menorca is on my travel bucket list! I've already been to Mallorca and Ibiza, can´t wait to visit Menorca and Formentera one day! I´ve heard so much of those paradise beaches with ablue see-through water... by the way, love Abercrombie and Fitch - their stuff always lasts!
