Great holiday for families young chldren
I had reservations before going to this comlex as i had never stayed in a complex like this but as we had a little toddler we thought it would be good for him. My son was 19 months old when we went and we had a great time. There was so much to do for him the entertinmemt team worked so hard on keeping the children entertained even although our son was a little to young to take part this year. There was also a play group for 2 hours on 4 of the days we were there which our son loved and gave us some time on our own, The staff there were great. Your children will love to pools and there is fun games around the big pool slides in the fun pool and quiet in the small pool something for everyone, although some of the pools were a little cold except for the baby pools.
The rooms were basic and need updating but are clean, there is no aircon but we went in september so this was not such a big deal but we were told that there was a heat wave in july and I would not have wanted to stay in there during that time. If you don't like intense heat then begining of sept is perfect especially for little ones.
We went all inclusive, the first time i had done this as i thought it would be easier with a toddler, the food was ok for the 1st few days but then got boring and dull the same every day and i missed going out for meals in diff enviroments. there are lots of nice places to eat in the town that wecome small children with play grounds and bouncy castles around them to keep your kids happy and i would recomend you do this if you can afford to just stay clear of eating at Jimmy hills stick to the spanish ones.
Evening entertainment was catered mainly for chilldren and they loved it the team work so hard and there is something on every night. There is also entertaiment in the evening in the resort at jimmy hills place which is ok if you want somthing diff just dont eat there!!!.
Over all we had a great holiday with our little boy lots to do lots of other small children for him to play with at this time of year as bigger kids back at school not to hot and not to packed at it is in high season, I would deff go back next year just not do all inclusive ever again.

Fantastic family holiday - 5* entertainment team
Was quiet concerned after reading so many negative comments regarding this hotel. It was great. 3 children 9,3,1 all had a great holiday. The hotel complex had something for everyone and every age. My eldest boy loved street soccer, my 3 year old girl loved the kids club. We all enjoyed the different swimming pools. The water park type pool was exceptional.
The rooms were simple and did the job required. Just wish it had air con. Hired a fan which helped but would have been nice to have air con to be honest.
Buffet. We went all inclusive. The queues for evening meal were ridiculous. The resteraunt is far too small for the volume of people staying at the binimar. That aside the food was fine. Self service drinks for adults and kids was brill.
The entertainment team and kids clubs team worked so hard to ensure everyone had a great and memorable time in menorca. 5* team
Don't listen to all the negativeness on these sites. Holiday at the binimar. It's a great place

highly recommend menorca, Just not this hotel.
stayed for two weeks with husband and two children mid July. Found this hotel over crowded full of rude, noisy, foul mouthed selfish guests with childen allowed to run around like wild animals. Not enough done by the hotel staff to stop the bad behaviour especially around the pool areas, people reserving sun beds the night before and sitting unused all day with towels on them, don,t know what the life guards do other that use their mobile phones. Rooms very basic ( no air con) but clean. Noise at night was terrible from drunk guests returning to their rooms, only got to sleep after 2am every night. Its not a place in my opinion for children- to many rude larger louts. Its like butlins in the sun. If you want a relaxing holiday in the sun with your children DO NOT GO HERE.

great for families with children
We just came back from a week at the binimar and after reading reviews wasnt sure what to expect. After an enjoyable holiday i would recommend it. We went with 6 and 3 year old and a 3 month old. The rooms werent good if self catering but as we were all inclusive wasnt a problem. Did have bit problem with ants but reported it and they said they they would spray and they went. Food was basic but good plenty of variety. Choices of cooked or cold breakfast. Meat and fish dinners and always chips and salad and variety of desserts. There were small ques at bar but if all inclusive they have a self service area. There was plenty for children to do with the kids club, play area and the fun pool with slides. Entertainment wasnt the best but was very good and the entertainment team were fantastic and there was stuff going on all day and got the guests involved. If your wanting 5 star then dont book here because your bound to find a fault if you look for one. Overall its a good place to stay and good friendly staff.

If you enjoy Butlins, this is the place for you!
Stayed for 7 nights all inclusive. Stopped going to the restaurant or "the zoo" as we called it, after the first 3 days. Food was not the best, everything fried, very bland and even the salad seemed tinned!! Restaurant was so busy you had to squeeze between seats and the queue to get a table had people waiting for ages with no air con. The busy and cramped feeling didn't stop there, there are 3 pools but not enough space for sun beds, you are basically sitting on top of the next person, that is when you could get one as many of the British put their towels out at midnight after the bar closed! The whole place could do with a good clean, apartments are VERY basic, you can hire fans (small desk top ones) to beat the heat, if your lucky you'll get a 2nd floor apartment and there seems to be a good breeze up there. We found the staff blunt and pretty unhelpful. The resort is good and has a water park and is a great day out, the kids water park at the hotel is really good but they let in groups of local school kids which adds to the over cramped feeling!!! Why? Thomas cook confirmed that this is a 3 star hotel which I do find hard to believe, if they weren't so greedy and cut the number of guests by 25% then this would have been a more enjoyable holiday. I certainly will not be back..

great family holiday
Just back from a 2 week holiday in the hibinimar resort in Minorca with my wife and 2 sons one aged 11 and the other 19 months. Overall the resort was everything we hoped it would be for the kids, the entertainment team were brilliant from early morning to last thing at night, only 1 problem was the choice of food for the boys they had a bad selection for them but they got through alright. There was very little waiting for food or for drinks at the bar which was great and not always the way when all inclusive. We would definitely consider this place for a holiday again.

holiday in spain.
Having just returned from the binimar here is are views.
staff,reception staff, waiters, entertainment staff, reps where all excellent.
having read a few bad reviews about this before we went we was abit worried.
there was only a few problems
no tv in the room ( i understand that it is so people go out) but with 3 days of rain and a ill 21month old toddler it wasn't ideal.
- the water in the pools where freezing. i understand they don't have them heated but this was very very very cold.
- adults where allowed to smoke in a tent where children was joining in with activities as it was full of kids surely they should tell them to smoke elsewhere.
- they cater for children with the park/swimming area/clubs but have 3 trays of food for children, they would have chicken nuggets 1 night and that was it. my son lived of jelly yogurts for a week!!.
everything else was good,
i would consider coming back to the binimar but only on a self catering or half board basis.
