Reviewed July 6, 2013

We stayed here for two weeks at the end of June. We stayed in room 302 which is on the roadside, I have to say that this wasn't an issue at all for us, the road is a dead end so there's only the occasional vehicle going up and down. The room itself was on the small side but we didn't go just to sit in the room.
The room was cleaned every day we were there with towels and bedding changed every other day. In general the hotel and grounds were spotless, when you walk by the front of the hotel you can see into the kitchen area and it always looked immaculate.
The staff are very friendly, speak a number of languages very well, and are always on hand to help out if needs be.
We stayed on bed and breakfast basis, the breakfast is continental with Spanish omelette fresh breads, pastries, fresh fruit, and eggs and bacon can be ordered as part of it aswell. A little tip, rather than using the automatic coffee machine, they also have a proper coffee machine behind the counter which is much nicer for a decent cappuccino.

The hotel is run by Italians which shines through with the food in the evening, delicious pizza and pastas. We ate here a few times and can't fault the quality. I would say that cala n porter is relatively poor for food, it's definitely set up for Brits abroad. Lots of signs about for full English fry ups etc. we hired a car and went to most places on the island, however the beach is only a few minutes walk from the hotel, down quite a lot of stairs, but is quite nice and picturesque.

My only criticism of the hotel is the mark ups for food, in particular desserts, and wine. €13 for 1 dessert is quite high, and for a bottle of wine we paid €14, and saw the same bottle the following day in the local supermarket for less than €3.

All in all this is a lovely place with brilliant staff, excellent service and in a good position for exploring the island.

This hotel ticked all of the boxes for us. The staff were really friendly and smiley, always ready to help. The food at breakfast was brilliant, it was all simple and fresh.
The atmosphere was relaxed and quiet, it was easy to forget you had the rest of the town on your doorstep. The beach was really nearby and the view from the hotel was very pretty.
Very happy to have picked this hotel and would recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxing break!

Had a fantastic stay here at the end of last summer - hope to return again this year. The staff were lovely and nothing was too much bother.

The rooms are gorgeous and very "Spanish" in style - much better than the nondescript larger hotels.

I would really recommend this to friends and family alike.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool.

we have just returned from a 7 night stay at the Sa Barrera. Excellent is not a word to use lightly but this place is just that!!! . All the staff are supremely attentive to your needs and the permanent smiles( the maid is so happy and hard working) make this hotel so different to some of the less cheery folk we have experienced in foreign hotels before. We only booked a month ago and still ended up with a poolside view (yes it is only May we know). My wife commented that she believed it is the cleanest place she has ever stayed in!!. We stayed bed and breakfast ( fried one available on request) and the extensive continental option was a delight. Home made pasta and pizza are the speciality in this Italian owned establishment and are very popular at evening time. A clean swimming pool does not make the water any warmer though. Only for the brave. We are already saving for our next visit. Superb

Room Tip: Rooms 204 to 208 have pool and beach views

Colourful, charming and welcoming are words to describe this medium sized hotel. Moorish in decor, the hotel Is located in the centre of the village but without all of the noise. The buffet breakfast is great-lots of choice and the staff are really friendly. It's swimming pool is clean and surrounded by modern , well kept sun beds. We loved it and are returning there at the end of this month !

Room Tip: There is no lift, so ask for a ground floor room if you have mobility problems.

All the comments are true. Sa Barrera Hotel is an excellent choice for your holidays in Menorca.
A good compromise quality/price, in a quite location.
The italian owner and worker are very atentive to all your needs and me and my girlfriend who also had a crash car during our stay experienced their kind help and assistance!
The Italian lady responsible for the kitchen will cuddle you and will grant you a nice breakfast and real Italian food.
I therefore can only recommend this place!
