“A wonderful experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

The hotel was in a fantastic location with respect to both the sea and the town. I had a balcony room which allowed me good views out to sea and also plenty of greenery. Everywhere was spotlessly clean, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the food was of a very high standard. Unlike many buffet arrangements, the food varied from day to day with an excellent choice of meat and fish dishes accompanied by interesting vegetables.

Room Tip: My balcony room over the hotel entrance gave me extensive views with the sea to my right and distanc...

This hotel makes a great base for exploring the island and it's a very adult hotel, no children so very peaceful. Martin the barman is excellent and all the staff are so friendly. Sea view and balcony required although we spend most time on the terrace with friends we have met on previous visits to hotel, once visited you will keep returning

A very we'll run hotel in a great location in Mahon overlooking the beautiful port and a stones throw from town itself. We'll run, very clean the hotel will make you feel well at home. The building itself is a charming design, staff friendly and bedrooms comfortable. Good quality breakfast and evening meal good value if needed. Have stayed at the hotel for business purposes on a few occasions in last years and will continue to do with pleasure.

I originally looked at this hotel, and read some of the reviews.On holiday in Menorca went along to look at this hotel and decided to book and went for two weeks. The hotel and staff were very pleasant and nothing was a bother to the staff. The room was kept clean to a high standard with a side view of the port, balcony. Went half board, food was very good including breakfast a wide choice, and also a good choice for evening meal both buffet service. Martin's bar service was excellent a credit to this hotel worth his weight in gold, this is the same for all the staff. Also the lunch service and food was good choice.

The hotel pool was a good size did not have any problem obtaining sun loungers, no need to bring towels as for a small charge the hotel can provide them. Although the pool furniture could have been cleaner, and also the furniture were lunch is served.

I will be returning to the Port Mahon Hotel this coming year. My holiday was taken in June this year and September 2013

Room Tip: Booked a sea view room, pay extra well worth if

During the October half term school break, we visited Minorca. The hotel was only about 15 minutes by taxi transfer. There was a lovely, warm welcome awaiting us. As the resort was very quiet (apparently nearly all shut the weekend we arrived for the winter), we were upgraded to a suite. It was on the ground floor & had it's own balcony with a beautiful view.
The breakfast was a buffet service & there was everything hot or cold you could wish for.
The evening meal in the hotel was £17.50, but if you bought 3 nights in advance they reduced it to £15.50. It was an extensive buffet service, until the 1st of November which is a bank holiday. From then on it was a set dinner menu & some of the choices left a lot to be desired.
The restaurants that were open within a 5 minute radius were first class & we couldn't fault any.
Just wish we hadn't had the lightning & cooler weather.

I stayed here in October with my partner and our best friend. We were celebrating my 65th Birthday so to ensure we had good rooms I paid the €420 supplement for two rooms overlooking the harbour. I thought it was a tad overpriced considering one doesn't spend one's entire holiday on the balcony gazing out to sea but it was much nicer than the rooms we often get at some places where you look out over the bins in the back yard.
Reception was excellent and most helpful. We had booked Bed and Breakfast but after eating dinner the first night we decided to have another three nights food which comes at a small discount. The rooms were quite small but very clean and comfortable. Having read some of the reviews before going I was rather apprehensive but judging by the rooms we had I should say they had recently been refurbished because there was nothing tired or worn about them at all.

I suspect maybe the food will have more variety and choice during the busier season but it was still perfectly acceptable mid-October.

The weather was wonderfully warm for our stay and we enjoyed the entertainment at the front of the hotel and the bar which served drinks onto the patio area where there were comfortable loungers and tables where one could have breakfast or dinner.

The swimming pool was very clean and well maintained as were the gardens. It was the first time any of us had been to Minorca and most certainly won't be the last.

I unreservedly recommend this hotel to anyone although for families with young children or teenagers Mahon doesn't have a beach. Minorca is a little quiet and doesn't have a lot of attractions beyond the lovely beaches which are only a short drive away. It's possible to get around the island easily by bus too but the service is very limited in October so we hired a car for just 4 days which was enough to enable us to see everything we planned.

Mahon is quite hilly with some steep roads to the town centre. There is a recently installed free passenger lift which operates 24 hours a day which takes you down to the harbour side. It's less than 5 minutes walk to the left of the elaborate stairway down which is situated right outside the front of the hotel.

Room Tip: If you really must wake up looking out to the harbour which is admittedly quite picturesque then you...

Just returned from a wonderful holiday at the Port Mahon Hotel in Menorca, excellent food, friendly & attentive staff. Perfect base for exploring the island. Hotel is a comfortable period building in a great position looking out over the grand harbour offering great views of the ships & boats entering or leaving the harbour.
