“Beautiful, comfortable and perfect service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2011

First time we were in Menorca and we could not have found a more pleasant place to stay. The hotel is fantastic, an old country estate beautifully transformed into a very comfortable hotel with all modern amenities - and tastefully finished. The rooms are large, spotless and very comfortable. The restaurant is excellent and the service perfect. The surroundings are beautiful and relaxing. Everyday everything was done to accommodate our needs and desires. A spot to return to without a doubt!

We stayed here for three nights at the end of April, and had a very relaxing time. The hotel is a beautiful old farm house that has been very sympathetically turned into a hotel, without losing any of its original charm. The workmanship is excellent, and of very high quality, with great (not big or lavish, but very comfortable) rooms, bathrooms, good showers, nice beds etc. We stayed in one of the rooms in the house - which was very nice.

There is an honesty bar open at all times and a dining room open for great breakfasts (bacon & eggs, cold meats, cheeses, good coffee etc), and fantastic dinners. As the previous reviewer said, these were excellent value for money and though there was a small choice of dishes, they were of very high quality; great steak and good fish. If you are vegetarian, tell them in advance, as there were no veggie main choices when we got there for dinner. The dinner price included wine and water.

The swimming pool is beautiful and fresh, with great views over the woods to the sea.

Everything is beautifully clean and there is good attention to detail throughout the hotel.

From the hotel we walked down to Binigauss beach - this is a wonderful walk through olive and fig groves through a rather impressive gorge, with a massive cave en route.

We also hired a car and did various other explorations - including sea kayaking at Fornells which was great.

Binigaus Vell opened only last month (June 2010). We are very familiar with Menorca, having visited the island regularly for the past 25 years, and were keen to find out more about this new venture in rural tourism.

The hotel is a renovated Menorcan farmhouse, and every effort has been made to preserve the style of the original building. The bedrooms and public areas are in the farmhouse itself, while junior suites are located in an outbuilding a few yards away. The hotel's website mentions that the best views are those from the bedrooms in the main building, but the junior suites have the benefit of a great deal of space, and look out on a wide area of the newly-planted garden, with the sea in the distance. The sitting area is comfortable, with a wall-mounted television which has channels in several languages - rather unusually, the English channels included BBC2 and CBeebies, but not BBC1.

The bedroom area is two steps up from the sitting room, with the bathroom behind. Everything is beautifully clean (and of course brand new). Our bed was large and comfortable and the bathroom was spacious, with two washbasins, bath and a huge, powerful shower.

Outside the french windows at the front of the sitting room is a small terrace area with two chairs and a table, separated from the adjacent sitting areas by a fabric screen - the only thing we would criticise, because there was very little privacy when we sat there after dinner in the evening. We felt that a wall (perhaps a drystone wall, in keeping with the surroundings) would have been a better idea.

Breakfast is in the main building and includes the usual range of dishes in a continental breakfast - fruit, cereals, juices, cold meats and cheeses, toast and pastries - but there is a waiter in attendance to offer cooked dishes, including bacon and eggs, scrambled eggs and so on.

Dinner in the evening is served either in the same dining room as breakfast or on the terrace (depending upon the weather) and is, we felt, particularly good value at €26 per person, plus wine. The menu choice is not extensive, but the quality of the dishes is excellent. If you fancy a nightcap after dinner, there is an honesty bar in the junior suite outbuilding.

The grounds of the hotel are quite extensive, and have been recently laid out with new plants and gravelled areas. A ramp leads down to the terrace of the large, seawater pool, from where there is a view of the sea in the distance.

The beach at Binigaus (one of the best beaches on the island) is a 30-minute walk from the hotel through attractive woodland scenery. Es Migjorn Gran is the nearest small town, with a number of restaurants, and the beach at Santo Tomas is a short car drive away.

For those who seek a peaceful, away-from-it-all holiday, Binigaus Vell is the perfect location. The staff were invariably pleasant and helpful, and we are in no doubt that within a very short time the hotel will become a popular destination for visitors to Menorca.
