This is our sort of hotel. Small, discrete, unpretentious and no flashy ‘bells and whistles’. If you are looking for a buzz, cocktail bars, full on spa, many restaurants etc then this is not the place for you. Hotel is tastefully decorated and restored and you really feel part of the countryside. Our room (no1) was delightful, tastefully decorated, with lovely outside garden; the only comment being that the entrance v close to outside diners. So noise might be an issue in some of the rooms if busy outside eating late at night in the courtyard.
We loved the simple restaurant and limited menu, focusing on local ingredients and grilled food. So much nicer than some of the flashier offers from nearby hotels
Lovely and helpful small staff, who looked after us very well. On our last night we had an issue of noise from the air conditioning unit in our room, so they simply moved us to a better available room without us even asking.
Our only small suggestions: please not to leave the laundry trolley sitting outside the hotel for most of the day!!. A distinct eyesore in an otherwise beautiful and considered setting. And umbrellas and beds by the pool are immovable so there were periods where no shade, so we had to sit indoors. Small points which i hope they address.
Hotel is paired with the nearby Santa Ponsa which does have spa and bigger gardens and more formal restaurant if you want that…

This hotel is still in its infancy but we’ve given it top marks because of the location, facilities, rooms and service. The rooms are top quality where you can rest and chill out in the very hot Menorcan summer. The design of the hotel and its recent renovation are second to none. As it begins to settle down there is a need to revisit the dinner menu which is too limited and to fix the WIFi which is not relable. Phil

Central Menorca is beautiful but there's not a lot there; Torre Vella is therefore in a very peaceful spot with good cycling. the rooms were well appointed, good bathrooms, appreciated the bottle of rose. The staff at breakfast were attentive, and paid attention to cleanliness. the sunset experience is quite special, I loved its rustic nature and the views over the sea; it's great that it is a reasonable walk, and the seating so in character. only complaint is that the aircon was broken throughout and no-one apologised, although they did provide 2 good fans. I recognise it was beyond their control but its unusual not to address this more quickly at this level of hotel.

We arrived with a reservation but no one greeted us or attempted to show us to our table. We had to go and find someone - who showed us to our table where we sat for over 15 minutes with no offer of a drink, water menu or anything so we stood up and left. It is also one of those restaurants where it’s so lacking in atmosphere that everyone whispers. These people are rank amateurs and deserve to fail.

Condé Nast / Instagram hotel … so in short super nice setting that is beautiful on picture but there it ends.

Not really service oriented … which is felt in many little moments of truth. Some examples: you have to carry your luggage from the driveway, to the reception, then to your room. Front office run by one person, ok but not warm. No warm welcome, extremely long check in process and check out process
, with lots of typing, copying, checking signing etc. The single man reception concept results in long waits, searches for that one person if you have a request etc. Restaurant ok but nothing special. Lots of flies on the breakfast buffet. However their sister hotel has a fantastic restaurant, highly recommend it. Best dining experience on the island.

The sunset experience is great, the setting is gorgeous.

Pool service, the bare basics … resulting in searches to find someone for a towel or a drink, long waits etc.

Would not recommend this hotel nor come back.

Friendly service but very inattentive.
Had sirloin steak ordered medium, arrived rare and not even warm. The quality of the sirloin, which I believe was not Sirloin, was not what you would expect from a Relais Château gastronomy. It was chewy although good in taste.

The sauces served came directly out of the jar so the mustard sauce. The fried Potatoes had an bland and industrial taste and were not crisp at all.

I don’t know what happened to this place. Last year we had an exceptional lunch there and were not disappointed at all.
Not this time, unfortunately.

A stunning and tastefully decorated finca style hotel and restaurant, with beautiful secluded grounds, fantastic food, and impeccable service. The highlight for me was the gorgeous pool surrounded by pampas grass. Incredibly peaceful and relaxing! Can’t wait to come back to Fontenille Torre Vella again soon!

Overall we had a good stay at Torre Vella. It is a lovely property - feels like a truly remote farmhouse with a lovely pool area, delicious breakfast and dinner as well as great additional extras such as free yoga every morning which was super. Unfortunately there were just a few things that could be improved to make our stay better. 1) Sunset drinks - we were really keen to join this but at 38 Euros a person, it didn't seem worth it given I am pregnant to attend as it was all drinks focussed. We shared this and asked if there was anything they could do about it and they answer was a simple no which was really disappointing and a bit of a shame. 2) Breakfast - offering was quite limited - more fresh fruit needed and need to provide 2 x eggs vs 1 as part of the hot food offering which also made it not a very relaxing experience when you are half waiting for your eggs, half wanting to make your toast etc. 3) I was served undercooked monkfish and when I raised this with the restaurant, it wasn't handled hugely well (despite sharing that I am pregnant hence the concern) - no discount or free pudding etc. was offered to make up for it.
Overall - we enjoyed it, but we didn't leave with a warm feeling and I don't think we would return.

Our decision to stay in Menorca was very last minute due to its green status, and we were highly frazzled from successive lockdowns in need of restoration.

Torre Vella was a wonderful choice, combining sublime dining every evening (we cancelled all other reservations as the dinners in the restaurant were so outstanding - high praise indeed from three vegetarians) with the characterful and tasteful design in the villas and rooms. The caring and dedicated team that took such care of us every single day were genuine and kind. We had the most fabulous time, and we are not exactly easily pleased. We check out of more five star hotels than we stay in, as holidays are too precious to waste with the mediocre. However this concept of hotel based in a rural setting has a heart, it has soul - it feels authentic and deeply connected with the nature and wildlife that surrounds it.

We enjoyed almost every aspect, the setting overlooking the vineyards and rolling hills, the African swallows dancing in the skies every evening - the sheer tranquility of bird song and warm golden sunshine was soothing and deeply relaxing.

The big fluffy towels, soft and comforting bed linens and deep baths helped ensure a restful night, and indeed the spa treatments (held in house) but there is also a spa a few minutes away only added to our well being. I can highly recommend the massages.

The children enjoyed cycling (on site), sailing and the picnics on the beach - and the vistas of the sea from the cliffs (you can walk easily to get there). The wild beaches and some of the older cities in Menorca are really beautiful.

Overall, it was a truly wonderful holiday, and we fully intend to return soon.
