With pools, a playground, and a free bus to Son Bou's beach, the Valentin Son Bou is a real find for families. The pool bar and buffet restaurant serve up international dishes. Elsewhere, pretty gardens provide a backdrop for roomy apartments.
The Valentin Son Bou has bagged a nice, secluded spot, surrounded by gardens on a hilltop. That’s not to say it’s cut off, though – the town centre’s only a 15-minute downhill walk away. Son Bou’s wide, sandy beach is also 15 minutes’ walk away, or you can hop on the hotel’s free shuttle bus and be there in 5.
The hotel itself has a great family set-up. Little ones have kids’ clubs, a big playground and their own pool, which sits just a few steps from the curvy main pool. Plus, there’s a poolside snack bar that serves up home favourites like pizza and chips. Main meals are pick-and-choose buffet spreads.
Lastly, there are the rooms. They’re nice and big, and come with extras like satellite TV and private outside space. Apartments with a separate bedroom are also available.

Just stayed in this hotel for a week in one of the rooms on the third floor. Spotless hotel, friendly helpful staff and excellent food on offer, varied by a show cooking option each night. We stayed half board which did mean we had to pay for any drinks with the evening meal, but the offer to buy the all-inclusive drinks for â¬3.50 per adult and â¬2.50 per child was a good option. Animation team and visiting acts provided great entertainment each night, only sometimes for the wrong reason! Wouldn't hesitate to visit again thank you for a lovely holiday.More

We really enjoyed our time at the valentin we booked it last minute for five days but wish we could have stayed longer. We were all inclusive but stayed in an apartment it was clean and spacious a bit old fashioned but that was fine. The pool was lovely and clean and there was plenty of sunbeds my son enjoyed the kids club and mini disco and the evening entertainment was good on occasions. The food was lovely the best all inclusive we have had and drinks did not taste watered down. The courtesy bus to the beach was great it is an amazing beach and the hotel do a packed lunch if you request it the hotel itself is old fashioned and probably not 4* up to todays standard but in its day it would have been the best on the island the staff make it 4* and who goes on holiday to sit in the room!!More
clean & family friendly
we stayed in the appartments to the side of the main hotel building. after an initial mix up with the rooms we got in and found a large living space with everything you would need. it was basically a flat fully furnished and very spacious. the room was a little dated but very clean. the food at dinner was perfect each night. the effort was faultless. there was a wide variety of food for even the fussiest of eaters. it was delicious, there was a different type of food each night so no repetition of mains. the staff were very friendly and helpful. around the hotel the pool was great & the kids pool was also very good. there were lots of activities to keep the kids entertained. for an all inclusive hotel it is definatley one of the better ones we have visited. i would stay here again.More

Relaxing & family friendly
We found the Valentin Son Bou to be clean and fairly well maintained overall, with only a few elements looking a bit worn around the edges (although must stress there's really nothing drastically wrong at all) The gardens are lovely and the pool areas are clean. Probably the most sun loungers I've ever seen in a hotel! We didn't once have a problem getting one. The kids pool is really nice with a gate accessing a lovely play park and the kids club. The hotel is quite isolated and we did miss spontaneously going for a stroll in the evening. There's a regular free shuttle bus into Son Bou up until 7.30pm. The beach in Son Bou is beautiful but there's really not much there other than a handful of restaurants and tourist shops. The restaurant was pretty chaotic in the evening - there's no queuing system and there's not much room so it was difficult to avoid bumping into people. The food was very good though - it was fresh with lots of choice, and they clearly worked hard to change the menu each night. The AI wine wasn't great as is often the case! There's a kids disco each evening which they all loved. The kids entertainment staff were very likeable and upbeat. Menorca is a beautiful place and we had a great holiday. Valentin Son Bou is perfect for a quiet, relaxing family break. More

just back from 7 nights in the apartments here and couldn't really fault the hotel in anyway except the wifi which was a bit hit and miss but that's not a vital thing! We were self catering and did not eat in the hotel at all but the maid service and cleanliness of all areas was brilliant. Our apartment was lovely and had a nice terrace. The reception staff were very helpful and always did their best to answer any questions we had (regarding the buses ect) the hotel shuttle bus to the beach area was very good and the mini market on site good too. We are not strangers to the area and so we knew good restaurants and days out already. The hotel pool area was lovely and there seemed to be a good mix of people all on different packages all inclusive, self catering, half board and all seemed very happy, I even spoke to some that had changed from different resorts. All in all I would recommend this hotel to anyone it has something for everyone young and old. Wonderful place on a beautiful island.More
