Host report by Pauline Durie and Jacky Baker

Menorca is a fabulous island and S’Algar resort is in a wonderful location that offers everything needed for a bridge holiday. A first-class hotel with excellent staff, led by Javier, that couldn’t be more attentive to our every need. Walk out of the door and be greeted by a promenade along the sea front or wander over to the pool bar for a coffee. The dining room has a lovely terrace that offers beautiful views over the sea. The food is very good and is always freshly prepared by the team of chefs. The playing room is spacious and overlooks the pool and the sea so when the bridge is tough it is easy to remind ourselves of the finer things in life.
