In a dusty Cala de Bou backstreet about five minutes from the tourist traps of San Antonio Bay, there’s an interesting mix of country and seaside vibes here.
There are 10 basic self-catering apartments, with either twin or king beds; each sleeps up to four people. Air con in summer and heating in winter, plus you get a spacious balcony and TV with satellite channels. My essential gets a big tick - a bathtub for a long soak after a day of sports.
With all the trimmings of Thailand, India and a surf shack, this has to be one of the coolest places to hang out in San Antonio, with WiFi in the lounge, tropical gardens and a cool chill-out tent, plus cool urban graffiti at the entrance.
Eating and drinking
Something for everyone – I love the big hearty salads and barbecue menu, but you’ll also find tapas, burgers and Indian and Thai specials. Meanwhile, the bar serves up exotic cocktails and the island’s coldest beer.
A pool, an open-air cinema screening extreme sports flicks, nightly live music jamming sessions and karaoke, an open air gym, plus ping-pong tables, a basketball court and so much more. The rooftop sunset yoga class took my breath away (literally!), with stunning views and an all-round enlightening experience.
And then there’s the extras - predominantly watersports like surf kite-surf, kayaking, stand-up-paddle, sailing and diving. You'll also find horse riding, skateboarding, hiking, personal training, tennis. The list goes on and on.
Whatever you need, just ask and they will deliver. Extremely knowledgeable staff can help you with anything on the island.
Who stays there
Sports junkies, thrill-seekers, families and visiting pro-surfers.
Up to 30 per cent cheaper if you book a stay during the winter months. Kids under 12 stay for half price, and you’ll pay a 10-15 euro supplement for a third person on a sofa bed in each room. Watersports and activities packages are great value.
