The hotel has an excellent location and facilities for adults. The room layout is quirky and modern. We had a sea view which allowed us to watch all the different boats and ships go to and from Mahon harbour. For us it was definitely preferrable to overlooking the quiet swimming pool. We had been there last year and there appear to have been cut backs which seems to really overstretch the already busy staff. The Blue Sky Bar with its jacuzzis offers a relaxing way to while the day away but watch out there is not much shade! Unfortunately it does not seem to be exclusively for hotel guests and we had an unpleasant experience on one day which involved drunk non residents during the afternoon. There are no beaches nearby but the bus service is very good into Mahon and from there on. We hired a car for a few days to explore a bit of the beautiful island.

Writing this while still here, we've been here for 5 days with still a week to go. If I wait until we go home I'll probably not get around to doing this!!

What a find, fantastic hotel, definitely not what you would label a typical "holiday hotel"

It's very stylish in decor, rooms and balconies are quite compact but very well fitted out with quality fittings. There's even a Villeroy & Boch toilet pan so they've obviously spared no expense.

The food is lovely, tending to be more traditional Spanish as the majority of guests are Spanish. I always think that's a good thing, a bit like going into a Chinese restaurant that's frequented by Chinese people.

We're AI, so there is a choice in the afternoon of a daily changing 3 course a la carte menu or you can order from the bar menu. Not everything on the bar menu is available to AI but if you choose anything that's not, you only pay 50% of the marked price.

It's the same with the drinks menu, but the choice for AI is pretty extensive, Smirnoff vodka, J&B or Ballantynes Whisky, Jim Beam etc. you want a single malt, you pay 50% of the marked price.

The rooftop Sky Bar is fabulous, about 5 jacuzzi's, large mattress beds and fantastic views. Spending most days there then back in the evening after dinner where there is a DJ or a duo playing.

A previous reviewer mentioned towels on the beds, we've not experienced this at all. There has been entertainment every night so far, mostly singing duos (good quality) between 9:30 - 11pm

Cleanliness was brought up before, my wife is an absolute clean freak and she has no problem with the place, I'm a bloke so what would I know!!

Definitely coming back here

Room Tip: Sea view does have a very good view but pool view gets more sun

A modern hotel, in a quiet location.Clean, great selection of food. As mentioned previously, sea view rooms have fantastic views. Ample sunbeds, 2 pools. So relaxing and quiet. The rooftop bar/sunbathing area with jacuzzis gave fantastic views, and was open at night for drinks/cocktails with a dj playing ambient tunes.10 minute bus journey into Mahon (buses every half hour). Menorca has a great public bus service, which is well timetabled, easy to comprehend and good value for money. Once in Mahon you can catch a bus to all resorts on the Island, and there are also several boat trips/water taxis available.You can also get a water taxi from Calas Fonts (5-10 min walk from the hotel). Calas Fonts has several waterside bars and restaurants, and is a great place to sit and watch the world go by. I would stay in this modern, clean, peaceful hotel again without any hesitation.

Room Tip: Sea facing rooms only get the sun early morning. Keeps the room cooler, but no sunbathing on the bal...

I have just come back from spending 3 nights at this hotel. The hotel is very modern and extremely clean and comfortable to stay in with excellent facilities. The roof top bar and pool area has stunning views and is a hidden gem. The location is good...5 min walk to cal de fonts-amazing little harbour with excellent restaurants. The hotel is a 7 minute walk to the bus stop which has regular buses to Mahon.

Barcelo Hamlton service is not adequate to a 4 star hotel.
The postive; hotel location (Es Castell) and the newly built hotel are beautiful, close to Mahon, while having the charm of the small town.
The negative: cleanliness was lacking during our stay, for example you room would be covered in the sand you brought in on day 1; the staff being overly friendly to the point it felt they were not taking us seriously; gastronomy was far below the spanish standard and that goes for their buffet, their fancy water side hotel and the roof top bar...
The worse: being charged for every little service on offer, 1 EUR for ice cubes in your drink! a charge for pool towels, another for parking. Yes, at one point it reminded of Les Miserabe inn keeper Thenardier:
" Charge 'em for the lice, extra for the mice
Two percent for looking in the mirror twice
Here a little slice, there a little cut
Three percent for sleeping with the window shut
When it comes to fixing prices
There are a lot of tricks he knows
How it all increases, all them bits and pieces
Jesus! It's amazing how it grows!"

Room Tip: rooms are well insulated, but try to get an ocean facing one

I agree with all the other positive comments from contributors who have stayed at this hotel. Everything is geared up for a relaxing stay and nothing is too much trouble for the very helpful and freindly staff. It has been noted by others that although a kettle is provided in the rooms there is no tea and coffee. I am pleased to report that during our stay these were provided in all the rooms along with milk, so a nice touch and one which I have not come across in other '4 star' spanish hotels. I would recommend paying the extra for the sea view, if only to observe some of the millionaire super yachts passing by....ahh dream on!!!
Another plus for this hotel, transfer from the airport 15mins.
