As the title says really.....just 2 adults and a 6 month baby.
Renting a villa with pool there but is resort ghostly quiet and places to eat pretty basic?! X

Yes, for the past 5 years!

OH's parents friends own a villa there so we get a freebie which is nice!

I think it's great. Very child friendly, decent beach, little train that goes round the island, nice cafe's etc

Depends when you are going re how busy it will be. It's not crazy busy, but I wouldn't want to go somewhere that was. We went in July last year and are going out again around the same time this year.

Take lots of sun protection for gets VERY hot!

Thanks so much for your quick reply.....we are aiming for may.....x

We've been in May before too. It's not so roasting hot but still very pleasant.

I like the Island, it has a very child-friendly vibe to it. It isn't somewhere you'd go for a banging mates holiday, but then that's not what you are looking for with a 6 month old grin

Hi Davethecat
Sorry to bother you again but would you know if baby can sit on our laps in a taxi in Minorca or do they have to be in a seat?
Getting lots of different opinions online and from bloody holiday company!
Could really do without having to take one with us as we don't want to hire a car x

I'm not sure to be honest as we always hire a car when over there.

I can try and find out for you though from OH's parents whose best friends own the villa. They are bound to know as seem to know everything else about being out there!

We are going to binibeca in May with a not quite two year old. We are hiring a villa with pool but I'm worried about pool safety.
Dave - Do your friends know anywhere that hire out safety fencing. We asked the letting agent but they said there wasn't anywhere but I cant quite believe that.

No need to Dave. I've just had confirmed that the legally it's not required in a taxi there (just like here). Thanks for the offer though that was v kind of you
