About April Common

As a farming family we cherish our time spent at our villa in Menorca and have owned this property for over 11 years. We spend as much time as our workload allows in this relaxing friendly village and we are confident that once you have spent time, at our villa, you will want to return again as so many of our satisfied clients and friends do.

Why April Common chose Alaior

We fell upon this village by chance, and from day one fell in love with the relaxing atmosphere, friendly people and beautiful beach and decided after an extensive tour of the Island that it was the best place for us to relax year upon year.

Lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely week in this villa. It was spotlessly clean, spacious and had great outdoor spaces. The villa is next to the pool which is a great size and was hardly used by the other villas so it felt like a private pool most of the time. The location is also great, just a short walk to the town centre and very close to the nearest supermarket, bars and restaurants. The beach is gorgeous and about ten minutes walk away, with bars and shops and some watersports. Would definitely recommend.

A little gem of a holiday home

  • 4 of 5

Well we had a great week from 12th August in April's villa.

One tip just beware there are 2 number 108 villas on the street. We got dropped off at the first one and thought we were in the wrong place! Soon sorted.

The villa is hidden away with close access to the large pool (just over the wall through the gate). We virtually had the pool to ourselves all week. The place is so quiet during the day and the evening. Very secluded. The lady who lives opposite (Juana and her dog Ollie) make sure the group of villas and pool runs smoothly.

The villa really does have everything you could need.

There are fabulous restaurants in abundance in easy walking distance all were very good but the Tapas bar run by the English couple is superb. You have to be lucky to get a table but do try. Big Al's ranch house is very tasty for ribs and steaks.

Go to the Caves during the day it is quite spectacular. 9 Euro to get in but you get a drink for that. Mahon on the bus is a treat if you like the shops and beautiful views. You can go on the bus for 1.70 Euro each way.

If you get stuck for information there is a guy who sells tours in one of the supermarkets ( 5 mins walk) He knows everything he has been there for 40 years.

The beach is lovely but it is a big walk back up the steep slope and nearly 200 steps. Great water sports paddle boarding and kayak at a very reasonable price.

One downside was the dinner we had at the restaurant that is perched on the cliff at the edge of the bay. The service was shocking. We were asked if we wanted a pudding before we had our starter and main course. Then when the meal came it arrived all together. The meal was fine but was the most expensive we had all week.

We would definitely spend time here again.

Not the best

  • 2 of 5

Villa was very basic, although given the low price I didnt really expect much better. Air conditioning was broken on arrival so had to spend half the week without any, despite asking for it to be fixed on several occasions. Ensuite shower room also smelt of raw sewage so was not able to use it at all. Pool was lovely and despite being availble for use by quite a few villas, it was never too busy.

All in all I dont think we would use again.

Great location, lovely swimming pool

  • 4 of 5

This is a great location - near the centre of the resort, close to the beach but extremely quiet. We used the pool lots and often had it to ourselves. This was a VERY hot week though and the air conditioning was only limited.
