This rustic-chic finca is an idyllically set family-friendly boutique hotel combining stylish interiors with small hotel charm, a lovely rural location, 10 minutes drive from one of the best beaches on the island, and a family friendly approach. It is owned and managed by Peter and Lisa, along with their team of friendly helpers. The 10 suites come with spacious double bedrooms, and separate living areas with sofabeds and mini kitchens that are perfect for warming baby food/feed or knocking up cereal or pasta for toddlers. The practical yet luxurious accommodation and tranquil but convenient (with a car) location, combined with a useful baby and toddler gear, from toys and highchairs to changing mats, potties, sterilisers and cots, makes Hotel Migjorn a great find for style-savvy families.
Unsurprisingly, the guestbook is stuffed full of rave reviews from happy parents of pre-schoolers. All adore the fact Hotel Migjorn is just 10 minutes (drive) from some of the island's best beaches, a fraction further to the picturesque town of Santanyi, home to good restaurants, boutiques and bars, and only half an hour from the airport, making for stress-free arrivals and departures. However, the highest praise is reserved for the ambiance which, with only 10 guestrooms, is more akin to that of a serviced villa than a typical hotel - especially when enjoying waiter service by the fabulously uncrowded pool!
The cuisine also garners high praise. Much of the fruit, vegetables and herbs used in the delicious daily breakfasts, lunches and twice-weekly tapas/BBQ communal dinners are grown on its 'Home Farm', which guests are also invited to raid for supplies to cook in their own kitchenettes (equipped with twin hobs, fridges, sinks and microwaves). Daily breakfasts focus on fresh fruit, organic cereals and cheeses and are served on the terrace until 10.30am daily. There is also a waiter service for drinks, nibbles and light lunches (ordered by 11am) by the pool. Daily evening meals are offered nightly. The charred garlic chicken and local chorizos are not to be missed, whilst junior guests lap up the Migjorn Meatballs. Vegetarians are also well looked after.
Mini guests particularly enjoy the comfortably heated pool and play area, both of which are a real bonus in spring and autumn when its warm enough to be outside but wouldn't be warm enough to swim, were the pool not so well heated.

Despite its tranquil setting there are several little towns with decent supermarkets and good restaurants within 5-10minutes drive of the hotel. Plus, Es Trenc beach, reputedly the best beach on the entire island, is only 5mins away. However, families often find Cala Santanyi (10kms) more convienent as you can park close to the beach, easily hire beds and sun umbrellas, and there are family-friendly restaurants. The town itself is also popular due to its combination of charm and traditional architecture with interior design boutiques and international restaurants. The twice weekly markets in the town square has hand crafted jewellery, flower, fresh local produce and leather goods stalls. Arrive early and people watch from one of the many cafes or restaurants lining the square.
Alternatively, stay at little closer to home and hire bikes (trailers and child seats available) via the hotel and cycle to the nearby beaches and villages - the perfect way to burn off some of chef 's excellent cooking!
