Its 30 years since our last visit ! not sure why we left it so long.
We went for a relaxing holiday with a 2 year Grand Child ! - middle two weeks of July and whilst hot there was most days a cooling & sometimes stiff breeze. (wonderful climate)
We rented a superb 4 bed villa with large pool & sea views from Dianne & Vance Hingley, their organisation & staff were superb!
The beachs are small but well kept and we did not have a space problem, great for the 2 year old.
Some villas are on well kept avenues with medium to steep inclines, whilst no problem for us or the push chair any one with a mobility problem should bear this in mind (the sea front road and villa's on it are fairly flat and easy walking)
The whole area is clean, tidy, well maintained & fairly quiet even at night - a pleasure to walk round & never seemed crowded !
The flight path to and from the airport comes close so you do get some aircraft noise but we never found it to be a problem (after all we got there on a plane!)
A couple of well stocked Mini Markets within walking distance kept most things and a host of ''English'' stuff - even Marmite! prices similar to UK independent stores (though a larger super store a short drive away on the outskirts of Mahon & smaller one near San Luis)
Several restaurants & bars in the area all were good, The Smugglers being as good as any but with a superb & entertaining host !
The Fish restaurant in old Binibeca itself had wonderful fresh fish, but was at very top price, several restaurants offer a take way service as well.
Whilst I would not say any offered ''haute cuisine'' we tried most and found nothing to complain about.
Generaly we found prices a bit higher than mainland Spain and fairly similar to UK (poor exchange rates at the moment).
Not the place for ''club loving teenagers'' I suspect !
Lovely place home to go again soon!
