Xuroy Hotel

The Xuroy Hotel is right on the beach in a peaceful and secluded spot.

The hotel’s pool area is a picture of calm and the highlight is a three-tier sunbathing terrace. The pool is a curvy number that comes with a little in-built circular pool for children. It’s an incredibly quiet area, with no music or activities going on. Out here, there’s also a terraced restaurant for a la carte meals.

Indoors, there’s a buffet restaurant that serves continental breakfasts during the week and adds cooked options at the weekend. In the evening, it serves round-the-world dishes.

Overview of Alcaufar

The Balearic island of Menorca is a real gem. It’s home to a bevy of beaches, plenty of delicious food and friendly nightlife.

Holidays to Menorca are particularly popular with couples and young families because the island is much quieter than Ibiza and Majorca, but there’s something for every pace of holiday here.

A stay at the Xuroy Hotel is great if you want to experience the Canary Islands on a go-slow break. But, due to the island’s size, you can easily ramp up the pace by taking a day trip to Mahon or Ciutadella.

Things to do in Menorca

The Xuroy Hotel is in Alcaufar, which is the perfect spot for a peaceful getaway. It’s set at the end of a row of fishermen’s boat houses, with pine trees providing a secluded backdrop. A sandy cove at the front rounds off the idyllic setting.

The seaside village of Alcaufar is largely sleepy, but plenty of bars still line the front where you can sip on a cocktail and make the most of the weather.

At the front of the resort, you can also join the Cami de Cavalls where you can walk to a watchtower. Or, for something livelier, Mahon is only a 20-minute drive away.

Alcaufar is a seaside escape, and during your stay, you’ll feel a million miles away from your worries!

Resort Summary

Upon arriving in Alcaufar, you won’t see any blocks of sky-high Menorca holiday hotels, or hear traffic and pulsing music – but we’re guessing that isn’t what you came for. Instead, Alcaufar is a sleepy seaside village that’s largely suburban and untouched by the tourism dominating other parts of the island.

Life here moves at a slower pace, where your main activity for the day is sipping a cocktail from a terrace overlooking the bay, and there’s always time for an afternoon siesta.
