Can't really pull fault with this Hotel or Location.
I'll list the Pros
Discreet location, don't be fooled into thinking you've made a mistake when you first arrive, this Hotel sits in a quiet back water... But overlooking the bay of Mahon, a Contemporary designed Hotel which actually feels like a Cruise Ship which is permanently berthed in Port, complete with its amazing Roof top Sun Terrace, a cooling breeze at times very welcome ! jacuzzis .. and .. Always a sunbed available ! Amazing views over the bay.
Lovely promenade walk in front of Hotel ( no cars ) a leisurely stroll takes around the point to the Amazing Calesfonts Harbour, if you like a traditional Spanish feel .. You'll love its charm, restaurants and bars most of which are partly caves hollowed out of the rock face.
10 mins and approx 8 Euro by taxi to Mahon, the Harbour front at night .. Worth a visit.
Staff in all areas can't do enough, 5 stars to Nuria, Marga, Monica, Mariona and Bobbx
Rooms are modern, beds comfortable. Daily cleaning an impeccable standard.
Food always good, varied, and at times near Gourmet standard !
Enclosed pool area with sliding roof .. great for cooler days
Central lower ground pool area quiet with shaded areas if you want.
All inclusive for us good value with not many restrictions.
Evening entertainment most nights in the ground floor lounge ... a duo or group, or if you want different, a DJ on the roof terrace playing cool laid back music until late.
Hotel is Adult only and is quiet in all areas, I would say no matter what age you are, if you have a young approach to accepting a change to a modern contemporary setting you will fall in love with this place. We are a couple early 50's ... and found that this place has the ability to strangely make you feel young again ( point of note .. This is the first time we have been away as a couple since our kids flew the nest ... So for us Adult only status was an attraction. If you're looking to rediscover your selves again .. Then quite simply there isn't a better place ! )
Worthy of its 4 star credit.
No full length Mirrors in bedroom !
Could do with More drawer space ( not a big deal )
No beach ... if you want one .. It's a 10 / 15 Min Drive.
Wi Fi poor in bedroom / ok in main Hotel areas ( free )
Ask for sea view room all are north east facing ... So no Sun in day .. But great view,
Pool views, some south facing for Sun, but not all.
Hire a car for a couple of Days .. See the island.
