Have just returned from 2 weeks here, I will go back. Some of the reviews I read before going pre-dated the refurbishment of 2013/2014 and are no longer accurate. We stayed in a Junior Suite which backed on to a small park but as it was screened by conifers we could not see anyone, it was very private and quiet. The room was large with a super king size bed, tea & coffee, en-suite with round jacuuzzi bath, bidet, square basin, shower & wc. Patio via double doors with sun loungers. Room was clean with fresh towels/sheets provided without prompting. Bottled water, wine and fruit provided gratis. Breakfast, luch and dinner are eaten in the main restaurant which is a buffet, there is a good variety and always something for most. Roast duck, pork, chicken lots of different fish, calamari, lasgne, tapas etc, etc. The house wine I found too sharp, its worth spending a bit more if you can. Best views from restaurant terrace over village and sea. Bar service was sometimes slow, especially p.m, but they had just taken on a new waiter so that should improve. Pools small but uncrowded, there are three of them, quietest is on the lower terrace. Benibeca is a small purpose built village built 50 years ago, it is idyllic to look at but the restaurants and bars are limited. The nearest beach is 12 minutes easy walk through a residential area of expensive villas. Beach is fairly busy but soft sand, sun lounger and sun brolly hire are 15e/day, drinks at the beach bar are not cheap, 10 e for two Pomada's (local gin based brew). Beach has good snorkelling but watch for yellow warning flag indicating jelly fish which wash in when wind current push them inshore - I was stung, its like nettle rash, but dont let that put you off. Mahon is a 15E taxi which hotel can book, rep' is best for car hire which is a "must do" as island is beatiful especially the roads heading towards Fornells in the north - fantastic sea front restaurants there. Visit national park/bird sanctuary and Es Grau, sanctuary has many different species of bird including Ospreys and migrating Flamingo plus lots of species you will never see in the UK. Citadella is as nice as Mahon and worth a visit, do not eat in town, go to quayside where there are lots of restaurants. Best advice is to go "All in" particularly if you enjoy cocktails. Thompsons brochure photos do not do this hotel, or its location, justice. Criticisms are to few although I did find myself getting bored with entertainment in the evenings which dominates the whole bar area, I found it a bit predicatable. As HOTEL IS SPREAD OVER SEVERAL LEVELS DISABLED ACCESS IS NOT GOOD WITH STEPS AND STAIRS EVERYWHERE, one elderly couple mentioned that as a problem. Also, "couples" includes mixed and same genders of all ages. Adults only was a bit too sanitised for me, I like children and sometimes I found it too quiet. In summary, lovely hotel, friendly/helpful staff, good food, idyllic location.......just go! I am a 55 year old professional. C.More

A little gem of a place
Just returned from the perfect relaxing couples holiday, room great very clean, food in buffet restaurant excellent and always cooked fresh. Italian restaurant delicious, staff hardworking but always time to chat and smile. Highly recommend spa and massage. Do not come here if you want to party dusk til dawn. Will definitely use it again.More
Recently returned from vanity eden adults only. Choice of three pools lots of sun beds and some Bali beds. Used the courtyard pool most of the time this was quite warm beds were readily available. Some previous reviews have said it's quite a walk to get a drink from the main pool bar but with all the lovely choice of food at all mealtimes this short walk is a benefit! Paid extra for a seaview room we were lucky and had an upper floor with balcony room 66 other people had sea view but a terrace. There was a public footpath that ran close to some of these rooms so they lacked privacy. All inclusive was excellent. Entertainment at night was poor. Different guitarists but even upbeat songs were played at slow crooning tempo. Small seating area at night not room for everyone. Went to Mahon on bus 1.70 euro but the bus was packed and had to stand all the way. Paid for taxi coming back 15 euros. Staff were excellent and well mannered . A very relaxing holiday which I would not hesitate in recommending to others.More

A chilled out relaxing week in the sun
My wife and I have just returned from a very relaxing 1 week stay at the Vanity Eden Binibeca. We arrived on the evening of 1 August following a short coach journey from the airport â less than half an hour with one drop off on the way. The staff at Reception were very welcoming and we were checked in pretty quickly and shown to our room, 206. We had only booked our holiday 5 days previously but were glad to find that our request for a high floor had been granted (admittedly there are only 3 levels in this hotel!). We were in a junior suite with a sea view. The room was very bright and very big, featuring an 8-foot wide bed. There was plenty of cupboard space, shelves and drawers as well as a long sofa, coffee table, safe, wall mounted flat screen TV, fridge (with ice compartment), kettle, iron and ironing board. And plenty of plug sockets too. The separate en suite had a Jacuzzi bath for 2, large wash basin, shower, WC and bidet. The shower was the only part that was a bit disappointing â certainly not a power shower! But still did the trick. On our balcony there was the standard table and 2 chairs. The sea views were stunning but unfortunately our balcony also directly overlooked the restaurant which was a bit off putting, particularly in relation to the evening meal. As we tended to chill on our balcony prior to our evening meal we were a little self conscious of folk sitting down to dinner (from 6.30 onwards), all glammed up and then looking up to see this old codger still sitting in his swim shorts about 30 feet away. We did mention this to Reception and were invited to look at their one remaining alternative room (210, I think). Weâd no longer have been over the restaurant however the sea view was not as impressive so we stuck with what we had. To some extent we got used to the twin views as the week went on. Maybe the diners had more to complain about than we did! We were staying on a half board basis. Breakfast was excellent with there being a good range of fruits, meats, cheese, cereal, and/or the usual full cooked breakfast. Also a good selection of fruit juices and Cava if you were that way inclined. We always managed to get a seat on the outside terrace which was a perfect start to the day apart from the occasional flying insect. For the evening meal the restaurant is open from 6.30 to 9.30. We generally went around 8.00 and again we always managed to get an outside table. A decent range of food on option every night and whilst I wouldnât go as far as saying it was excellent there was always something we could have. As a general rule the food could have been a little hotter, particularly my usual starter - the lukewarm soup. But no really serious complaints here. The only quirk was when we ended our meal with coffee and cheese. Both freely available but no crackers or biscuits, which was a bit unusual. Thereâs also an Italian ârestaurantâ and we were entitled to one visit there which was included in our half board option. It was good to have the food and drink served to your table but the food itself was OK but nothing special. There are 2 nearby beaches on either side of the hotel, both being about a 15 -20 minute stroll. We visited the quieter one first. Loads of different nationalities there and a feeling that it was a very ânaturalâ beach â a very small, calm bay with a few boats moored there. A bit stony underfoot as you go into the water but once in it was very calm and lovely for swimming around. There are no facilities here at all although on one day an ice cream van appeared! The other beach was perhaps 3 times the size of the first one and was always pretty busy. Again, the sea was calm and ideal for swimming or cooling off. There were a few shops within a 5 minute walk of the beach and thereâs a beach snack bar right on the sand. Most days we visited each beach, one in the morning and one in the afternoon and this also meant that we could tick off our âdaily exerciseâ box with a combined walk of just over an hour. There are 3 separate pool areas with plenty of sun beds. We only tended to make use of these in the late afternoon as we preferred to spend most of our days on the beach. So no real firm opinion on this. The nightly entertainment was good so long as you accept it for what it is â 2 guys doing their best but often choosing songs that were a little too challenging. They did however know what their audience liked and tended to stick to the hits! There was a power cut on our last night when the better of the 2 was doing a solo set. I admired the way that he continued on, undaunted with a very true unplugged set, walking round the dimly lit tables taking requests. The show must go on! We decided to hire a car for a day and were very surprised to find that Thomsonâs gave the most competitive price. The car was delivered to the hotel car park for 8.30am and you just return the keys to reception at the end of the day. We hired an Astra and the cost including all insurances was Â£55 plus the fuel we used so about Â£70 in total. Menorca is great to drive around with good roads and clear signs. We were away from the hotel from about 9.30 to 7.30 and managed to see quite a few places â Arenel dâen Castell and Fornells in the north then crossing straight down to Cala Galdana and Sant Tomas then back along to Cala en Porter (visiting the apartments we had stayed in on our last trip to the island in 1998!). As we neared our departure day we were disappointed to learn that there was no courtesy room. There are showers located under the restaurant and reception provide fresh towels. But it did feel a little like trying to freshen up in a very public place and with no air con there it was difficult to get dry. We had asked about keeping our room on but with the hotel being fully booked this wasnât possible. Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the Vanity Eden Binibeca. If youâre looking for a quiet, chilled out relaxing holiday in the sun then this should meet your needs. Hail Hail!More

Quite shabby furniture. Lots of it old but now painted with white paint which is peeling off the chair arms and marking clothes and skin! Nowhere very comfortable to sit in the evening other than the poolside cafeteria. Entertainment far too 'samey' and boring...same songs, same tempo, same key. Footpath through the hotel is not marked out so people and DOGS wandering about. The food was good, the service was good, typical sun bed fiasco. And whoever made the decision to use bali beds (for idiots to fight over, and block the view for those on sun beds), needs a reality check!More
