We just returned from four nights at Ca Na Xini to celebrate our 6th anniversary and we were not disappointed! We chose Menorca because we wanted some time to relax, enjoy the beaches (although from afar as the weather was fairly cool), and have some alone time away from the kids.
We arrived at Ca Na Xini fairly late at night and were warmly greated by Luis who let us know that we had been upgraded to the Moore room. The hotel is quite stylish and modern (think white on white) and our room smelled fantastic (maybe the laundry detergent?). We couldn't have been happier with the service and our stay--some things that set this place apart and make it a 5 star review were:
Service - Everyone was extremely helpful and accomodating. We wanted to take a tour of the cheese factory onsite, but were told by David that they only had Spanish tours. Since my Spanish is a bit lacking, he gave us a private tour on our first full day in English and graciously answered my (many) questions. And two days later, for breakfast we ate the very same cheese we saw them making! They also had great restaurant recommendations.
Food - Breakfasts were delicious with local fruit, cheese made onsite, pastries, and fresh orange juice. We also had dinner onsite, which they offer 3 times per week. Excellent food and service. We opted for their wine with the meal and it was fantastic.
Surroundings - The hotel has well-maintained and very peaceful grounds, and a sculpture garden that was relaxing to walk through. It is located in the center of the island so everything is very accessible. I would highly recommend that guests rent a car, though. One comment for runners - there aren't many paths leading directly from the hotel for runs longer than 5k so plan on driving to a different location if you want something with more distance.
Overall, it really was a great place to spend a romantic getaway and I would recommend both the island and the hotel without any reservations.
