We stayed in Zone 5 (the furthest from the beach/centre) apartments are very spacious and were spotlessly clean (apart from the ants which we sorted with a spray from the shop in the first hour!).
They don't have a microwave which would have been good but they do have fridge, oven, ironing board, iron, kettle, pots/pans and cutlery etc. We stayed in a downstairs apartment with a front patio and garden bit, lovely to sit on a night and eat/drink on the patio.
Can't comment on the entertainment - not my thing, sounded like Spice Girls one night at Butlins! But quiet apart from that. Everyone in bed around midnight anyway which is good for kids.
Theres a small amusements arcade on site and bar but in the centre of resort (5 min walk) then theres bowling, restaurants, 3 supermarkets, ...
beach not far and bus stops allover for trips out to the rest of the island. We went to mahon - nothing there but streets, didnt find the harbour!! A few other people also said same. Read More
Don't book trips with the reps before looking locally, on one bus stop we saw a trip they tried to sell for twice the price and theres a boat trip on a board outside a cafe.
All in all - lovely place, would suit kids from 5 plus better then babies or teens. We have a 5 yr old and 7mth old. Plenty of places to buy baby jar food and nappies but bit pricey, one place sells cow & gate and hipp but I wouldnt rely on it and I did take my own dried packets in my luggage with milk sachets.
Eating out didnt cost too much - three of us ate with drinks for around 50 euros at Casa Andres and Boni\'s in the centre of son sou and had pizzas and chips etc at Arthurs on the front for 35 euros.
All in all - would have been a great holiday if it hadn't rained for 1st 3 days, but we did go in May!
