You'll find Menorca's best boutique hotels spread out across the island. Though because of the historical nature of their buildings, many are in the vibrant center of Mahón or Ciutadella. All offer unique stays with plenty of authentic character, and you'll find amenities like on-site restaurants, spas, outdoor pools, and happy hours.

For an authentic boutique hotel in historic Mahón, consider the Cristine Bedfor Hotel, just a few minutes from the cathedral and port and easily described as oozing charm. The property owner developed the hotel's concept herself with the help of her designer friend, spending years collecting all the antique furnishings and room decor. 

Enjoy the charm first thing in the morning with a daily breakfast served in the inner courtyard garden. And for other meals, the local favorite Restaurante Ses Forquilles is behind the menu of the on-site eatery, which uses regional ingredients to craft dishes meant to "awaken the senses." You can enjoy meals and snacks throughout the day in the dining room, on the patio, or by the pool. Other unique highlights include a yoga lawn, an outdoor patio and picnic spot, bicycle rentals, beach kits, an outdoor pool surrounded by the garden, and a shop with handpicked items.

All units come with fresh flowers, embroidered sheets, and unique details that bring the relaxed island vibes right into the room, like wicker furniture, woven rugs, and wispy curtains. Suites and Superior rooms add sofas, and some units, like Cristine's Choice, have direct access to the garden and a little private patio. Learn more
