Returned after 5 years and found the hotel as good as ever. So friendly and the same staff. Improvements had been tastefully completed and we really enjoyed everything. It was our 5th time at hotel. Stayed second week at hotel within same group and wished we had stayed at Santo Tomas!

We would say that this was nearly perfect. We flew from Exeter, short flight and very good one. Then the transfer was spot on. Arrived early at hotel and had to only wait a short time for our room. Were unpacked and on the way to the beach by 12 o'clock. Don't think other people had mentioned that the beach is a nudist, topless and fully clothed.
Our confusion is that really all the rooms are sea facing but somehow you pay extra to upgrade for a better one. We had taken previous peoples comments and emailed the hotel for an upgrade. This cost us 20euro a night. We then heard at our welcome meeting that others had been given similar rooms. Hotel can do this obviously. Not sure what we would do next time. And there will be a next time as we really enjoyed staying here. As we hadn't been before we judge it on what we found. The bathrooms are a problem as you can hear EVERYTHING going on in the next room, also talking in the bedroom. We ended up whispering all the time. Bath towels abit thin. Beach towels are available for 10euro deposit and 1 euro to launder. I found the self service at meal times quite frantic, you could be making 5 trips each meal time. (Small plates only at breakfast) I recon I burnt off the calories I was eating with all the walking. Food choice was good, you wouldn't starve although meat at dinner wasn't the best. But you could always find plenty to eat. It is very chilled most of the time (except at 6.30 am when people are up and saving the sun beds, was quite funny), entertainment was varied but never busy. We enjoyed it.

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor as there is always someone with high heel walking around above you. The refurnis...

Just got back from two lovely weeks at Sol Menorca, now recast as 'Sol Beach House'. Before going we read all the reviews, many quite negative, about the effect of the rebrand to Sol Beach House. OK, it's changed a bit, but ONLY a bit. The décor is different. Some (only some) of the terra cotta tiles are now white, and the door and window surrounds are blue. Actually, they're not blue, they're exactly the colour of the sea below the hotel, and look fresh and bright. The rooms are even nicer - plenty of space and storage, huge bathroom with walk-in rain shower. The food is better than ever!! Great buffet, plenty of choice, very attentive staff, and, as usual, always pleasant and helpful. I didn't like paying for the in-room safe - that's standard in most 4 star hotels these days, but the parking was reasonable, as were the telephone calls home. If you've been before, or are thinking of going, have no concerns - it's really lovely. As for complaints, I think some people would complain that the sky was too blue and the sea was too wet! Just go, and ENJOY!

Room Tip: They're all pretty good - we like a room in the west block, facing the pool.

We have just returned from two weeks in Menorca. We chose the Hotel Sol Menorca now renamed ‘Sol Beach House’ as it was for adults only and because it was beside the beach. This was ideal for us. We had a relaxing holiday and loved the hotel.

We arrived early afternoon and were warmly greeted by reception staff who were very welcoming and extremely friendly. Our room was ready for us and we were given directions to the second floor. Our room did not overlook the pool area as we had hoped, but we had a side sea view, overlooked the gardens and the adjacent hotel and we were happy with the room, it was very comfortable, bright and clean with plenty of storage for clothes etc. Rooms have an in room safe, a mini fridge, air con and a ceiling fan. We had a big modern bathroom with a walk in shower. I understand some rooms do still have a bath.

Safe hire was 36 Euros for 2 weeks. The fridge in the room is free to use and if you wish you can opt to use it as a mini bar and pay to have it stocked with drinks. There was also a TV in the room but only about 4 English speaking channels which seemed to be news channels so we didn’t bother with the TV much. We had a nice rocking chair which was good to sit and read. I noticed some guests had put their rocking chairs onto their balconies. The maids do a brilliant job and work very hard and our room was always spotless as were all other areas of the hotel.

Hotel food was excellent. Meals are buffet style self-service and there are lots of choices and different foods each day. The fresh bread was delicious as was all of the food we had. The deserts were totally yummy, and there is lots of fresh fruit. The staff in the restaurant work very hard yet always find time to greet you and give you a smile.

In fact all of the hotel staff are so friendly, they all greet you with a ‘hola’ and a smile, nothing is too much trouble for them. Our in room safe was faulty and wouldn’t open, I reported this to reception and the maintenance man was there to mend it within ten minutes. He came armed with a very large tool-box but in the end had to replace the door. It was very good and quick service.

We had a relaxing holiday which was just what we needed. The hotel gardens are a great place to chill out. There was always plenty of sunbeds, and the beach is so close you can hear the waves. I liked the fact the bali beds were all together, much better than being spread out around the gardens. There is low key daytime activities if you wish to take part, and also evening entertainment. We enjoyed a drink in the bar and some nights we watched the entertainment. A couple of the groups we saw were very good.

Guests are treated so nicely by the staff and we were made to feel like part of a large and friendly family. We were sad to come home at the end of the 2 weeks, but as we were leaving the hotel for the airport, we were waved off by two smiling faces wishing us a safe journey home and telling us they hoped to see us again soon.
Thank you Sol Beach House for a lovely holiday, we hope to see you all again soon too!!

We have been going to this resort for 27 years and stayed in this hotel for many . Despite having stayed there before and never been disappointed I couldn't help but read the reviews before we left, I couldn't believe it, how can people complain about this beautiful place with such friendly staff, excellent food, levels of cleanliness etc. Ok, if I had to make one negative comment it would be the entertainment, but we don't go on holiday to this resort for liveliness, we go for peace, quiet and relaxation which can be guaranteed. You can certainly recharge your batteries here.

Room Tip: Ask nicely for a refurbished room
