Pools are a standard amenity in the Balearic Islands, and Menorca offers some of the best hotels with refreshing swimming spaces, whether outdoor, indoor, or private. The following properties put a focus on their pools for complete relaxation and rejuvenation, offering perks like sunbeds directly in the water, natural saltwater options, and serene gardens.

Faustino Gran's garden transports you to the islands' hedonistic days of pure indulgence. With a pool lined with beautiful stone tiling, wooden sun loungers, soft grass, and tall palms, it's easy to relax here. As a bonus, you'll also find an indoor pool at the hotel's spa, built into the vault of an ancient cave. The indoor pool is made with natural stone, and you can also enjoy the thermal circuit, sauna, steam room, relaxation area, and treatments. Continue unwinding on the rooftop terrace with city views. 

Pair your self-care with delicious meals at the Faustino Restaurant, which serves a Mediterranean menu using local island ingredients for dinner. The eatery's outdoor seating with candlelight creates a romantic, rustic ambience, perfect for this historic 16th-century palace. For rooms, you can choose from nine categories with authentic details like tile flooring, wall cutouts, beamed ceilings, rustic wooden furniture, and woven decor, such as rugs and hanging lamps. Posh upgrades include a rooftop terrace suite with a hot tub and cathedral views and a private villa with multiple bedrooms and its own pool, kitchen, and terrace. Learn more

Barceló Nura is the epitome of a pool-centric hotel, with numerous options filling up its inner garden. You'll find three large outdoor swimming pools here, but the true perk is that many rooms offer private or semiprivate (one shared by two units) pools. Add tall palms, soft grass, and sundecks that jut out into the water with comfy beds, loungers, and umbrellas, and you have a true oasis. In addition, the spa offers a heated indoor pool with jets and submerged loungers, plus a sauna, an ice shower, a gym, and a relaxation area. 

As for the rooms, you'll enjoy colors and textures that mimic Menorca's natural environment, including neutral tones for the land and blues for the sea. All have furnished balconies or terraces, some offering sea views and private pools or direct access to shared pools. For meals, you'll have your choice of four eateries: a buffet restaurant, an a la carte restaurant, a lobby/pool tapas bar, and a rooftop terrace with drinks, sea views, and live music. To keep it simple, consider one of the all-inclusive packages. Learn more

Suites del Lago is an adults-only property that also finds its identity in its multiple pools. The inner courtyard has a beautiful stone terrace with lines of sun loungers, chairs, and rustic stumps as side tables. A bridge connects this terrace to the rooms, and one part features sunbeds in the middle of the pool. This lodging also offers numerous rooms with private pools, many sitting just above the main pool yet with the perfect amount of privacy. For even more relaxation, head to the rooftop beach club with another pool and a bar with sunbeds, or unwind in the spa with its heated seawater pool, thermal circuit, and other perks like a sauna, relaxation room, and treatment menu.

Suites del Lago is the central hotel of the expansive Lago Resort Menorca, so you also have your pick from 24 different bars, cafés, and restaurants surrounding the marina at Cala en Bosc. Other amenities include a gym, fitness classes, and a cycling center, and the rooms are full of authentic Menorcan charm with neutral tones and raw wooden accents. Even the lowest tier of superior rooms feel spacious and comfortable, but you can upgrade for perks like terraces with those private pools or personal Jacuzzi tubs. All have home automation that lets you control lighting, temperature, and music. Learn more

Villa Le Blanc Gran Meliá is a beachfront property in Santo Tomás, with all rooms providing at least some sea views. Though the hotel embraces its idyllic seaside location, you can relax at the expansive outdoor pool, which sits next to the property's garden overlooking the sea cliffs and offers lines of relaxing sun loungers and sunbeds with umbrellas. But again, the ultimate appeal here is the option to book a room with a private pool. And for true indulgence, you can secure the presidential suite with interconnecting rooms and a huge private swimming pool overlooking the sea.  

All the other rooms are just as appealing, with beautiful designs, natural tones, and decor that creates a warm and welcoming space. All feature tile floors, wooden ceiling fans, arched walls, and large windows, and some have separate living rooms, kitchenettes, and furnished terraces. You can also enjoy relaxing in one of the many lounges or the spa with its water circuit. For meals, the hotel offers three restaurants: S'Amarador with traditional Menorcan cuisine, Cru with its all-raw menu, and Nivi, serving paella and grilled dishes accompanied by unique cocktails.

Hotel Torralbenc

Though a four-star property, Hotel Torralbenc calls itself a "small, luxury hotel" and welcomes you to a renovated farm in a quiet, rural location. This pastoral setting makes its saltwater pool so appealing, as rustic tiling, sun loungers, soft grass, olive trees, charming stone walls, and beautiful countryside views surround it. And for more privacy, book one of the cottages with either direct access to the hotel's pool or a private pool all to yourself.

Though you'll undoubtedly feel the rustic vibe, the property balances it nicely with polished, comfortable, and inviting rooms, plus elegant whitewashed buildings juxtaposed with stone fences and tiling. Enjoy strolling around the property, like a wine cellar, a historic chapel, and outdoor dining on a terrace that overlooks the grounds and seaside. There's also a gym, yoga sessions, and spa treatments available. Learn more
