If you are a Hobbitt you will love this tiny dark and really outdated place. We were bottom floor in Zone 3. The walls were paper thin and I had to clean it when we first got there as I cut my foot on something sharp on the floor. I also had to buy a drain cleaner as the water...

It was our second time at these apartments. They are very basic but functional. Some have larger balconies than others but have all you need. The decor is very tired but being on a young family holiday (children aged 7 & 8,) we were out all day either at one of the four pools or at the beautiful beach less...

We stayed here during October half term. When we booked we were not made aware that not all of the pools and restaurants would be open. We arrived on the Saturday. On the Monday two out of the three pools (along with the restaurants next to them) closed. This meant that everyone had to use just one pool!! If we...

I stayed at the Son Bou Gardens a week from 24/10/16. The weather was much better than I expected. Nice and hot in the day and cooler in the evenings. The apartments are in well kept gardens and are spacious and clean however this complex is much bigger than I thought and there were hardly any guests and it t,...

These apartments aren't great. Not terrible but definitely only just average. The one my family and I stayed in smelt musty, had very very old furnishings, was dusty and looked as though it hadn't been stayed in for months. The tv did not work, the bedroom light didn't work, the bathroom had the bottom apartments cooking smell coming through a...

We had a week here in October. It was relaxing, a quiet resort close to restaurants & shops. It was a short bus ride into Mahon which was busier but had a better range of shops. Apartment was clean & well equipped.

Quite a nice place and a very good bus service. Very friendly staff and never to busy. I did think 15 euros for two sun beds on the beach each day was a bit steep though. On the whole a good experience and a very nice resort that wasn't too busy.

I stayed for the half term week with my two children (6 and 8 years) and my mum (who will remain ageless) in Zone 5: next to the reception (only open 10am-2pm ish daily; has a handy free book exchange area) and the 'mushroom' pool & bar/restaurant, run by a nice gent called Sebastian. Zone 5 suited us because, although...

We were a little confused by the various reviews that made it look if people either love or hate this place. Now we’ve been there, we understand the issue. Son Bou Gardens is a huge apartment complex which spreads out for about a mile along a road that runs parallel to the beach, which is about half a mile away....
