Hi loves ❤ Beaches, sea and olive oil. That’s what crossed our minds when thinking of the Mediterranean Islands.
We thought it would be fun to visit Minorca, instead of the standard Ibiza and Mallorca. Don’t get us wrong, we love Ibiza and it’s always lots of fun. We were just not feeling it this time, but still wanted to go somewhere tropical. So Minorca it was!
One day before we left, we both learned something about Minorca that we did not hear of before.. that’s the nickname of the island. Are you ready? The island of Minorca is also know for Buggy Island, which basically means lots of families/babies. Our flight confirmed this big time, since 40% of the plane were families with babies. Another fun fact is that its the island of Mayonnaise. Not sure what you will do with this info, just a small side note. And last but not least, Minorca is known for their wine yards. That’s what made us – enthusiastic wine lovers – very happy again! We went to the famous Binifadet Bodega near Sant Lluis wine yard, where we drank Minorca’s best home grown sparkling wines. Loved it there!
So not only for families with babies, but also for friends there are a lot of things to do on Minorca. Strolling around in the old capital Ciutadella was one of our favorite things to do – read eating ice-cream. Next to eating, we were also quite ‘active’.. hiking for 1,5 hours to get to the most beautiful secret hidden beaches. A great combo of relaxing/eating and working out! So we would definitely recommend visiting Minorca!
So, after this short promo talk about Minorca, it’s time to tell you some more about our wonderful stay at Zafiro Minorca. We have had the best stay!
The hotel was located around 10 kilometers from the old capital of Minorca, Ciutadella (which turned out to be our favorite city of the Island). The surroundings of Zafiro are just beautiful, it’s a 5 minute walk to the sea, where we did our morning walks. The location was perfect!
Talking about perfect… the breakfast. We don’t know how they managed it every time again, but the breakfast was surprisingly good and different every morning. So pancakes, waffles, fresh fruits, juices, eggs, bubbles you name it! They will have it! Just talking about it makes my mouth watery. Also, a shoutout to the lovely staff who helped us every morning. It’s usually not everyone in the hotel where you have a connection with, but in Zafiro we had so much fun with everyone! They are super nice and helpful, a big plus in our opinion. Some of you may be wondering, what about the babies you talked about in the beginning.. where have they been hanging out? Well, some of them at Zafiro! The hotel managed it again so well, there were different pool areas, with some rooms around it. They really think of which families to place where, so that’s a nice thing to keep in mind. We actually had a pool for ourselves most of the time, how great! All together, we had the best week in Minorca and would definitely come back. We would choose for Zafiro again in a heartbeat! Such a lovely vibe.
