“A quirky village hotel in authentic Ferreries, with beaches and sights a short drive away”
With just 6 rooms and suites, it’s easy to feel like you’re staying in a bohemian Menorcan home rather than a hotel. Kingsize beds are topped with crisp white sheets and quirky patterned throws, and snowy walls are pepped up with hot pink armchairs, turquoise tables, or perhaps a mint-green rug. We were particularly captivated by the colourful street photography by German artist Johannes Barthelmes (a friend of the owners).
We stayed on the 1st floor, in one of the peaceful, airy Suites; all have nooks with extra seating and ours had a Juliet balcony overlooking the courtyard. The Double Rooms are equally charming, if a little smaller and tucked away via a smaller staircase - great for friends travelling together or a family with older children (though there are no twin beds). The Superior Double Room has a pretty tub with overhead shower; other rooms and suites have a shower room only (accessed by a not-particularly-private sliding door), but all have lovely organic, eco-friendly Giura toiletries.
Ferreries’ informal tapas bars offer a taste of authentic Menorca. We spent a relaxed evening sipping ice-cold beers and working our way through mussels, fresh bread, baked peppers and meatballs in one just around the corner from Ses Sucreres. There are formal eateries here too, and even more options if you’re willing to drive a few minutes to other villages. Stephanie has a wealth of recommendations (and maps) so just let her know what you’re looking for.
Come morning, head downstairs for a buffet breakfast amongst the spindly greenery and colourful cushions of the walled courtyard garden. The spread includes Menorcan meats and cheeses, and our favourite: fresh mashed tomatoes to be eaten with bread and a sprinkling of salt. It’s all pretty laissez-faire, but we enjoyed topping up our tea and coffee as we lounged in the sun.
No other meals are served, but there’s a Nespresso machine and cool Smeg honesty fridge with snacks and drinks in the lounge - try one of the Menorcan wines then visit the vineyard where it’s made.
Hotel Ses Sucreres welcomes all ages, but this is a small hotel where sounds travels so they prefer to only have one family staying in the hotel at any given time.
Children (4-12 years)
The first-floor suites can sleep up to 4 (2 adults and 2 children); all rooms can hold a baby cot.
