Just come back from a week here , the apartments are clean and basic kitchen has everything you will neeed with fridge freezer our had a new cooker microwave toaster etc etc , We were on ground so you have plenty of space daughters was in same block 3 along We had toilet that dripped all day and night drove me nuts reported it but nothing done while we were there . The English receptionist is very blunt and rude but didn't really need her help worked things out ourself . The resort is only just getting going for summer so not lively at all and still lots still shut pools are freezing especially for little ones and very very slippy Collapse

These apartments are not the best. The beds are not comfy and did smell rather musty, in fact overall could do with a upgrade. Plenty of bars and restaurants 5 mins walk. Also the beach is also 5 mins walk away. The apartments had no details on how to turn on the calor gas oven which I thought was rather dangerous if someone has never used Calor Gas before. Collapse
Lovely and quiet

Me and my mum just stayed for a week from 5th to 12th May at Son Bou garden resort and we had a fantastic week. Not being quite in season yet the hotel was relevantly quiet. We went to the pool closest to us near reception and it was a decent size. There is plenty of shade to sit in and plenty of sun loungers for everyone. It says you have to pay €2.50 for a bed but we didn't pay anything as it's not busy enough yet. The poolside bar la gondola served some lovely cocktails and food although some are a little pricey. The barman Sebastian was lovely and also served as the lifeguard and was very friendly and nothing was a bother for him: only thing I would watch out for is they let you take glass onto poolside and there was a few occasions someone broke their glass and didn't clean it up so watch your kids feet when they running round. There is a kids pool which is cordoned off so they can't wander into the deep pool. We got the local bus into the nearby city of Mahon which is only a 35-40 mins bus ride. Would recommend paying €6 for the little red train that takes you on a 45 mins ride round the sights of the city and you can get off and on at 3 different stops. The port is lovely to walk down but there are lots of steps on the way back up. On Tuesdays there is a local market inside the old church but it was closed by the time we got there. The local bus is caught either at the bottom of the supermarket next to club San Jaime, or can be caught on the strip. It's only €2.55 for adult one way which is a lot cheaper than the €32 the excursion trips cost which only gives you half a day there anyway!! The bus is air con and the drivers speak good English. Once back at hotel we decided to go to a different pool on the resort as there is 3 to choose from. Talk about having peace and quiet, there was only about 10 people round the whole pool and it's massive! There is a huge baby pool and larger pool for adults. We went down there for 3 days and everyday is was quiet. Not sure how quiet it would be in the seasonal months though. We got food in the cafe but the poolside bar was just being renovated ready for the summer months. There is also a supermarket close by and doctors. The beach is about a 5 min walk and you have to walk all the way down to son bou town to get onto the boardwalk. Don't be fooled by the reps 'knowledge of the area', she told us you could have a nice casual stroll along the boardwalk to the next town of San Thomas, that took about 45 mins and was ideal for strollers or wheelchairs. This is not the case, the boardwalk stops and starts into the sandbanks and you have to cross a river to get onto the next section. Amazing sunset though so definitely worth a look down. The apartment rooms on the resort are lovely and very clean, although a little dated but still nice. They all come with either a balcony or terrace. The only let down is the beds, the beds are very hard and uncomfortable, my mum ended up taking the foam off the sofa and putting that on top of her bed to make it softer and she said she got a good nights sleep after that. The shower is deceiving, it looks like it's going to be really old and rubbish but it's actually very powerful. The hot water runs out quite quickly so make sure you don't stay in there long if there is a few people sharing. The rooms were very cold at night but they had provided extra blankets so we were ok once we put these on. If you are in a ground floor apartment, the upstairs apartment can get very noisy depending how considerate your neighbours are, unfortunately we had 3 young girls, and 3 kids above us who decided to move the furniture round at early hours of the morning and had their music blasting, luckily we only had 2 nights of this as they arrived after us. The was no live entertainment as advertised but this is only because it was out of season, i would recommend they maybe let people know when booking as the night times were quite boring with nothing going on in the local areas. Lots of eateries and bars which i will review separately. Unless you have a car there isn't much to do on the island but we wanted a relaxing holiday anyway so this was fine with us. safety deposit boxes are stores in reception and cost €2 per day with a €5 deposit. All in all a very lovely place and would definitely stay at again. Collapse

Stayed here for a week beginning of May 2017 in a 2 bedroom apartment. Very welcome arrival even though we arrived at almost midnight.Apartments aren't modern but are traditional old style spanish and feel this adds to the character of the place but mainly was spotlessly clean on arrival.Apartments have full size cookers and fridge/freezers which is a godsend when self catering and very well equipped..Surrounding gardens and pool areas also immaculate. We had a drainage issue halfway through our stay which meant we needed to move apartments.This was done quickly and without any hesitation and followed up with a visit from reception to check we were ok and happy with new apartment and a lovely bottle of bubbly. We stayed in block 3 and this was brilliant for access to everything within son bou in a 5 min walk.Well stocked shop and a lovely bakery open 8-2 daily. Recommend a meal at the Indian Restaurant next to the 2 big hotels in Son Bou.Lovely. Hope to return again soon. Collapse
