WELL...... We stayed here for two weeks from the start of October & Loved It !!! Prior to booking , we read all the reviews, & overall had a lovely experience ! To start with , we liked the idea of the 5,55am flight , arriving early in the Resort, & we were settled in to our apartment before Midday on the Monday The Tour Bus dropped us by reception , & as we wandered to the desk we were aware of some holidaymakers complaining about missing items in the Gold Apartments ! Being allocated in Zone 3 , they drove us the ten minute walk it would take , & carried our suitcases through the door ! From what I had learned , these flats date from the late 70s , but we think they oozed charm & character ! We laughed as we got to grips with the calor gas cooker , & loved the wobbly fan in the lounge ! After a couple of days we did a supermarket food buy, & our provisions were at ease, living in the large fridge- freezer , and food cupboards A micro-wave , fast kettle , huge cupboards , which all went well, with a stocked kitchen , full of usefulthings , like a cork - screw ! The gardens were very pretty, & sat on the terrace gave you some privacy ! With an October Sun still pumping out warmth , we woke early in the morning, & were enticed across the lawn for a swim in the pool. Yes , its un-heated , but as the day goes on , it warm's up . For me Zone 3 was the best pool, but it is DEEP .! The walk to the fantastic beach , takes about 10 mins from zone 3, as you glide past the bars & restaurants & then onto a wooden walkway . Survival guide is as follows .... The flies , are seldom mentioned , but are a huge nuisance , & I had nearly 40 bites on me ! So we called in to the pharmacy & for 4 euros got some tabs which made the itching cease ! By the end of week one , my back was aching, so I took the mattress from the settee in the lounge, end of problem ! The local food shops were really expensive , although were well stocked . We hired a car from Poppy Cars, & drove to Lidl which was far cheaper ! The Island is covered in trees & pearl white Rock's peep out from under a green canopy of flowers, like Nature has got a huge smile on its face ! The Coves are lapped by Crystal clear Aqua water, full of fish , nibbling at the pristine ivory sand on the beaches ! A quiet, low key holiday without razzmazztaz Collapse

We stayed in zone 3apartment115. The apartment was basic but was ok for our needs and we were lucky did not at this time of the year need any air conditioning as there was not any. We had a couple of niggles and once reporting to reception they were sorted quickly. Nice beach but for me a bit too much of the nudist bathers they appeared to be anywhere you look. Why oh why do they have to parade along the beach and stand with hands on hips. Food was really the same where ever you went and in fact a couple of the bars were closing for the season, even the pool bar and restaurant was closed more nights. Than was open and we were coming back between nine and ten do not late, I did find that it was rather expensive when eating out and for this reason I think that I will go back to fully inclusive as this was a late cheap break that turned out expensive. When walking around resort there was two of the big hotels closed, one only half open and other buildings not finished. All in all a pleasant place to stay, but not for longer than a week Collapse

As you can see from my other reviews it's not the first time I have stayed at the son bou.garden apartments. I requested the same apartment I stayed in last year 186 z3 and was happy to be allocated that apartment it had everything in we needed for our stay full size cooker - fridge freezer - kettle - microwave - toaster. The beds were firm but comfortable bathroom was modern with over bath shower and full length bath and vanity unit sink. Although son bou is a quite resort there are about 20 restaurants and a few bars. I don't recognize some other reviews (chip with everything) some of the restaurants are excellent, I think some people must be getting mixed up with son bou and a fish & chip shop in skegness. While I'm talking about other reviews If I have made a statement " I would be ashamed to take my family there" I think my family would be ashamed of me for making such a stupid statement and rightly so. I always find plenty of things to do in son bou this year we went scuba diving, horse riding, both available in son bou we also spent time on the beach and also walked over the headland to cala'n porter one day and on another day walked over to santo tomas, we also hired a car from poppy cars 10/10 and visited other parts of the island. The reception staff we very professional and pleasant as was the cleaning staff. The only small complaint I could make is the shower curtain is a little short and I soaked the floor a couple of times but apart from that for me its a perfect place to stay. Collapse

Stayed in the Son Bou Garden Appartments for two weeks on a family holiday. Basic accommodation but clean and adequate. Bed broke the second day there, cooker blew up on the third day. Water sprinklers went off at 1 am and 4 am outside our appartment. All things fixed but only after numerous visits and calls to the reception which was manned by a very rude English receptionist who made us feel as if we were a nuisance. We found the other staff quite pleasant and helpful but you had to get passed this ghastly woman first. The pool areas and gardens were lovely and were situated favourably for all the amenities.

With fabulous pools and just a short walk to the beautiful sandy beach we love to enjoy a glass of sangria and a meal at the restaurant on the beach, over looking the sand dunes and the sea whilst the sun sets, beautiful.
