If you're excited to hear that Balearic family holidays are back for summer 2021, Palladium Hotel Menorca could tip the balance in favour of arguably the most family-friendly Balearic of all.
Set on a hilltop overlooking pretty Arenal d’en Castell beach, four-star Palladium Hotel Menorca takes full advantage of the Mediterranean views, fresh sea breezes and endless sunshine that define the very best Balearic family holidays. Recently refurbished, the hotel's Mediterranean mood is as evident indoors as out; reflected in the cool colours and light drenched design of all 264 rooms and suites – several suites have ocean views and furnished terraces too, just in case you forgot you were minutes from the Med.
Smart and contemporary on the design front, the hotel’s kept its feet firmly on the ground when it comes to families. Of the three lovely swimming pools, one is dedicated entirely to children. And Kids Only Club is a fun, fully supervised, space for four to 12 year olds. With some space to yourself, the adult-only swimming pool is definitely where you want to be, making the most of cloud soft sunbeds, strategically placed umbrellas and the gorgeous summer weather.
Between the nearby beach, on-site entertainment, three bars and an excellent restaurant specialising in traditional Balearic cooking, you don’t have to move far from the hotel unless you want to. And you probably will, because Menorca is lovely. The entire island was designated a UNESCO Biosphere in 1993. Uncrowded, cove-like beaches are a local speciality. And it’s a perfect size for exploring, even with younger kids. The island capital Mahon is only 20 minute’s drive from the hotel. For a little more history, head west to atmospheric Ciutadella de Menorca. And if you just want that Spanish holiday vibe we’ve all been missing for too long, Aquático waterpark is practically Hotel Palladium Menorca’s nearest neighbour.
