You get what you pay for
Pros - No doubt this is good value in the sense that you can sleep 5 people (4 singles and a “sofa bed”) for a reasonable price. The sofa bed was not really a bed. - The exterior and the grounds looked nice and were well kept - You could use the pool for free, although we were told at check in “not to stay there all day”... - Satellite TV Cons - The interior of the apartment was old and tired. I’d estimate that the apartment was last updated in the 80s. The floors and surfaces were not well cleaned and though we stayed for a week, there was no cleaning service for that length of stay. - Though there was a kitchen with toaster and oven, when we tried to use them, the fire alarm would go off, probably due to accumulated oil and dust on the elements - The towels were only changed once - Though we could use the pool, you did have to pay for sun beds. It’s only a few of euros per bed per day, but people ended up just setting up on the floor. The pool can get pretty packed. - It’s about a 20 minute walk to the beach... not too bad, but there’s no shade all the way there, so be prepared. - Due to COVID-19 there were fewer people than usual when we were there, but nevertheless there were large herds of children who would roam around without supervision and could be quite loud even past midnight, just outside our bedroom window Conclusion: basic accommodation for a budget price

Peace and quiet
2nd stay here. Love the quiet serenity of the place. Apartments set in beautiful gardens well maintained. Many privately owned. 3 pools 3 zones 3 restaurants on complex with shops/bars etc 5 mins walk into Son Bou. very quiet in May when we were there but that is how we like it. Some days had the whole pool to ourselves. Love it here. Rooms basic rustic style but not a problem for us. Many privately owned. Would love to live here!! Car advisable if you want to explore this beautiful island. Sorry photos will not upload tried 3 times on my mobile.

Nice stay
Stayed here for 5 days in September 18, nice appartment with all the basics you need. Beds were a bit on the hard side. Local area very nice with plenty of choice for meals. Could do with some sunbeds for the balcony.

8/10 Very good

Happy overall and we would repeat
Lovely resort with good swimming pool and restaurant for a quick lunch. Particulary one of the swimming pools with Grass around. Checkin was very slow due to the lack of communicaton between hotels.com and the resort. They did not have my booking confirmation where the discount was visible and I spent half an hour to find it and email them. That should be improved as check in ahould be quick. Apartment was located in a nice area near pool, restaurant and bakery. Happy that bathroom was newer than expected as I know these apartments can have a very old one. Kitgen appliances and furniture need a refresher and maybe change it for something a bit better. Beds are a bit uncomfortable as after few days we could feel a hole in our mattress, so we turned the sides and it was a bit better. It would great to have washing machine, at least a sharp knife to cut meats, etc. There is only one for bread. All my comments is to provide conatructive feedback and help to manage this better, we were very happy overall and we would go back as kids loved it, t is very quiet and very good location to visit calas around the island. We did not missed aircon as fans on the ceiling are ok if you also keep blind windows closed to avoid mosquitos.

Some much better than advertised. Great break
The apartment was great, better than advertised and therefore expected. I would recommend Son Bou highly. There are a couple of niggles the main one to be aware of is the rental charge for the sun beds. But that is a small niggle. The pools are really good. Do let that put you off. Hire the beds and relax. On the plus side the rental charge meant that the pool wasn’t to busy. So that’s a silver lining.
