“Old Town charm: a romantic hotel with subterranean pool and roof terrace, plus 4 independent family-sized apartments”
Tres Sants means "Three Saints", in reference to the 3 streets on which it sits - Saint Sebastian, Saint Joseph and Saint Christopher. As such, each room is named after a saint and has romantic, understated decor. Most are straightforward double rooms with billowing linen drapes, distressed blush or ochre walls, and bathrooms with huge concrete tubs and drenching rainshowers, plus heavenly vanilla-scented lotions and potions.
Our room, Sant Sebastia, was more like a suite, with a small lounge leading to a lofty four-poster bedroom and (like one other room) a second smaller bedroom with solid bunk beds. Although this would work well for family, we didn’t feel out of place staying here as a couple, and relished the sense of space.
Tucked away in a separate building nearer the entrance to the Old Town are 4 self-catering apartments, each with 2 bedrooms and an open-plan kitchen and lounge area - great for families. Although managed by the Tres Sants team, guests staying here only have access to the hotel pool (and breakfast is not included in the rates), so it's best for those seeking a more independent experience.
Come morning, wander down to the intimate breakfast room, where you can either dine at a long communal table or outside in the sheltered courtyard. We were impressed with the tempting mix of authentic Menorcan cured meats and cheeses, freshly mashed tomatoes with sea salt, and delicious fresh custard pastries. These same sweet treats are the speciality of the hotel's cafe, where a tempting selection is displayed alongside homemade cakes (and light lunches are served during the day). During summer, drinks and snacks can also be brought up to the roof terrace, a particularly good spot for sundowners overlooking the terracotta rooftops towards the Mediterranean sea.
For anything more substantial you'll need to head out into the Old Town; the team have a host of recommendations ranging from relaxed tapas bars to romantic harbour-front restaurants, just ask.
The self-catering apartments come with full kitchens and large dining areas so cooking is made easy, plus there are plenty of markets nearby.
We'd recommend the apartments for families as, although all ages are welcome in the hotel, the calm, romantic atmosphere makes it a popular hideaway for couples.
Children (4-12 years)
Separate to the hotel, the 4 apartments each have a double bedroom, a second twin room and space for a rollaway bed or baby cot. Bear in mind that the apartments do not have access to the hotel facilities, and the bathrooms are shower only. If you'd prefer to stay in the hotel, all rooms can hold a baby cot and 2 have a double bed plus 2 in-built single beds (sleeping 4 adults and 1 baby max) - request when booking.
Baby cots are available on request.
Remember baby and child equipment may be limited or need pre-booking
The apartments have well-equipped kitchens for self-catering.
