Family holidays in Menorca: everything you need to know

In uncertain times like the ones we live in, and when information is accumulating on lots of portals, we want to make it easy for you. That is why we have compiled for you all the necessary information to travel to Menorca and spend a well-deserved family holiday.

As you will understand, all the information will be updated as governments and health authorities take the appropriate action. So stay connected, because we will be updating.

 

How to get to Menorca from United Kingdom?

The main connections are from London. However, there are airports such as Manchester, Glasgow or Edinburgh that also maintain connections to the island. Of London’s three airports, Heathrow has the highest number of flights, followed by Gatwick. Luton also maintains some connections in the summer.

The main airlines connecting the United Kingdom with Menorca are:

  • Iberia
  • Vueling
  • Air Europa
  • British Airways
  • Easyjet
  • Jet2.com

What documentation is required to travel

For all those travelers who come to Menorca from outside Spain, it will be mandatory to fill in the Health Control Form, regardless of the country of origin and age. This form is personal and non-transferable, and can be completed individually or as a family. Once completed and signed, you can download or print the form, which will be requested upon arrival at your destination.

What else do I need to submit besides the Health Control form?

If you are travelling from the United Kingdom, it will be necessary to present:

  • a vaccination certificate or document certifying vaccination with a complete schedule 14 days before the trip (to be considered valid provided that the vaccine administered is one of those aprroved by European Medicines Agency or the World Health Organisation).
  • a negative PCR done in the 72 hours before the arriving to the island. Or 48 hours before the arrival if it is an antigen test. Both certificates must include the following information: name and last name, date of the test, type of test performed and country of origin.
  • a certificate of recovery after passing the disease. More than 11 days must have elapsed since the last positive test before the trip. This certificate shall be valid for 180 days.

For travelers from the European Union, the COVID Digital Certificate is also valid. It should be noted that children under the age of 12 are not required to produce any of these supporting documents. When filling out the Sanitary Control Form to enter Spain, you can include your COVID Digital Certificate, with which you will obtain a QR Fast Control that will speed up the procedure at the airport.

What if I travel to Menorca from outside the European Union?

In this case, one of the three certificates described above shall also be requested:

  • a complete vaccination certificate or document accrediting vaccination with a complete schedule (to be considered valid provided that the vaccine administered is one of those approved by the European Medicines Agency or the World Health Organisation).
  • a negative PCR done in the 72 hours before the arriving to the island. Or 48 hours before the arrival if it is an antigen test. Both certificates must include the following information: name and last name, date of the test, type of test performed and country of origin.
  • a certificate of recovery after passing the disease. More than 11 days must have elapsed since the last positive test before the trip. This certificate shall be valid for 180 days.

Also, for children under the age of 12 travelling from outside the European Union, it is not compulsory to present any of the mentioned proofs.

I am traveling from a country that is not considered risky. Do I have to present a certificate?

For countries considered safe, which are updated every fifteen days and you can consult here, you only need to fill out the Health Control Form. No further evidence is required.

Health information

The health situation in Menorca is one of the best in Spain. And we must try to keep it that way. That is why it is important that:

  • If you are already in Menorca and you have any symptoms compatible with COVID-19, isolate yourself in your room and contact the hotel reception. They’ll help you by asking for medical assistance to check if you’re okay.
  • Always wear the mask and keep the safe distance of 1. 5 meters. Both at the hotel and at other establishments.
  • If you have any questions about the rules of action to ensure the health of all, consult our guide or contact reception.

The measures we have taken at Royal Son Bou

We want your holidays in Menorca to be as relaxing and fun as possible. And that means we have to take care of each other. Like a family! That’s why we’ve taken some measures to ensure your, your family, our staff and the rest of the hotel’s guests health. Keep them in mind whenever you move within our facilities.

  • Mask is mandatory in public areas, except in the pool.
  • The maximum capacity of the hotel will not exceed 60% occupancy. This way, you’ll have more freedom of movement and space to keep your distance.
  • We have created service protocols in areas such as the buffet, where you can enjoy our showcookings.
  • The smallest of the house will be able to enjoy the activities programmed for them, with some differences that involve smaller groups and games that do not involve physical contact.
  • We have signed an agreement with the Clínica Juaneda Menorca to offer our clients antigen tests and / or PCR at the San Jaime medical center located less than 10 minutes walk from the hotel.

You can consult here all the measures we have prepared to make your 2021 holiday look forward to returning in 2022.

What we have prepared for you this 2021

Everything. And when we say it all, we mean all the activities, relaxation areas, buffet and pool that characterize the Royal Son Bou Family Club. Last year we realized that, with a little imagination and all the precautions, the fun could go on. So prepare your sunscreen, because we are going to make sure you enjoy the sun and the good weather without having to worry about anything else.

Of course, for the sake of everyone’s safety, we will have to follow certain rules in the common areas. This is the case with swimming pools, where we have created a single entrance area to control capacity, among other measures. The general idea is that you can enjoy your holiday with peace of mind for yourself, for your family and for the staff who will take care of you at Royal Son Bou.

As for children’s activities, we also return to them, with some variations. The BabyClub is back, for those parents who want to leave their babies safe and secure while enjoying the sun. Also Kikoland, with lots of outdoor activities. And, of course, the Royal Club, where you can enjoy ping-pong tournaments, soccer or video games. In the evening, the fun will continue next to the Marés bar, with a show designed for the elders of the house.

What if. . . in the end we can’t travel?

Take it easy. We are aware that plans do not always happen as we intended. That’s why we’ve set up a new free cancellation policy that allows you to give 24 hours in advance if any unforeseen events occur.
Also check out our booking benefits if you are travelling with children, including the possibility to book a family stay at no cost for up to two children
