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.

went there in may 2013, for one week. the hotel is on top of a hill , but there is a hotel bus , that takes you down , to the shops and beach. the beach is long and the sea is tropical. the hotel is of a very high standard , staff are friendly and rooms are kept very clean. towels changed daily. our room was of high standard and the bed was comfortable. the bars were good and friendly and good entertainment . adult bar was relaxing and friendly. food was of good quality but a typical all inclusive. pool was lovely and relaxing. bars in son bou were a bit pricey ,but make your own decision on them . places to visit; mahon the capital. the port and shopping centre was nice and worth a visit . citidella was also nice and scenic. must look around the cave houses of son bou. the bus service, runs regular from the shopping centre . ask for information on bus times, is advisable . would visit this hotel againMore

Me and my partner booked the Valentin Son Bou hotel at the end of the season for 1 week (defiantly not enough i recommend 2 weeks) as we knew it would be less crowded and quite. When we first arrived the hotel was lovely and clean as well as the room and bathroom. The accommodation you get is a bath/shower in one room and bedroom that has a sliding door out onto the balcony with a wonderful view of the swimming pool and in the distance the ocean! About the hotel: Valentin has three pools, one indoor(small), two outdoor(a large adult pool and a kids pool shaped like a bear) as it is a family hotel they have an entertainment area with a bar at the back and a stage at the other side which has daily shows on for kids (quite entertaining when they get the adults up to do the dances). The staff a lovely people and help with any enquirers about the hotel and places of interest. They have an adults only bar which is perfect if you want peace and quite but as we went at the end of the season that wasn't a problem. Now the big dining hall with the wide selection of yummy all you can eat buffets for breakfast,diner and tea was excellent, at the far end of the dining hall their would be a chefs special that changed everyday such as omelette that he/she would make for you with extras of your choice (as you can probably tell i scoffed my face full every time i when in their!) Location: even though the bus journey is an hour (it isn't that long but after the flight it seems longer) it is well worth it as the Valentin hotel is 10 mins walk down to the beach but you can get the bus that runs from the hotel to the town that has lovely restaurants, supermarkets and shops that you can browse until your hearts content. The beach is wonderful with golden sand and clear blue water, word of warning if you venture too far east up the beach you come across a nudest beach (we didn't no until it was to late...its hard to unsee things, but each to their own.) I would defiantly recommend the Valentin Son Bou hotel 100% to everyone!More

could have been better
Went here 11th October for 1 week. the hotel is very nice, rooms quite large and kept in a clean condition. they were cleaned every day without fail, sheets and towels renewed on a regular basis. The food was of good quality but the choice deteriorated badly during the week, this was due we think to the hotel and the small town of Son Bou closing down on the Sat19th Oct. The remaining residents most who were on their 2nd week there complained to the Rep and staff. this was not a good way of keeping the reputation we were told about and spoilt what should have been a great chill out week for us. the bars and bar staff were really good and but for the food situation, the hotel was pretty good, and would possibly consider going again. Others have told about it being on top of CARDIAC hill so no point in going into that. Shame they spoiled themselves cutting back and getting rid of what they had left foodwise which is what it seemed like to everyone without exception.More
A good surprise
A late break in September and we were not expecting much but the hotel was fantastic for the price. Yes it is dated but it was spotless. I am not particularly child friendly but there are plenty of places within the hotel for some piece and quiet. The adult only bar was excellent. Another nice option was the ability to buy foreign branded drinks at a discount rate. The range of drinks and snack was excellent but for a little treat we did buy some special rums and brandies. All the staff were excellent and our apartment was great, more than sufficient for two people. My only gripe was the lack of toilets around the pool, they were a bit of a trek away from the pool area. son Bou is a typical touristy town I struggled to find a spanish speaker or a real spanish bar. Not a place to discover Minorcan culture.More
