“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2011

We stayed at the end of July in 2011 after reading some of the reviews in Trip Advisor. Casa Alberti occupies a magnificent old house in Mahon. The house has wonderful high ceilings and has been beautifully decorated to create an air of slightly faded grandeur. The rooms feel cool and airy despite the heat and there was a beautiful terrace on which to enjoy breakfast. We like to sleep with the windows open and so always bring earplugs - if it was noisy at night we didn't notice. The breakfast was delightful, fresh, and available until late in the morning.

Beyond the beautiful setting what really made our stay so wonderful was the hospitality of Blanca and her partner Gonzalo. Nothing was too much for her and she made sure we made the best use of our time by arranging bike rentals and sea kayaking according to the weather. She also shared lots of local knowledge and Gonzalo photocopied his own map of the island with all of his notes about the different beaches, roads, coves, and archaeological sites.

We loved our time here and cannot commend Blanca enough on her hospitality!

In general, we liked Casa Alberti. Blanca was very helpful and friendly; the breakfasts were good, and the house itself is charming. One problem however for those with cars is parking. We did find free parking but a 20 minute walk away. If you don't have a car, then the location is great. Another problem was noise: creaky (I can't find a proper adjective; "screaming" is more apt) doors and shutters that bang throughout the night when the wind is blowing. We found it difficult to get a good night's sleep.

Weather was perfect, and definitely warm enough to sit out in the evening at a bar/restaurant. Thought Mahon was a very nice, relaxed town and lovely to wonder around. Went to some beautiful beaches and especially loved Binibeca (one piece swim suits are not the thing to wear). Enjoyed walking along the coast and seeing the caves. Worth seeing Ciutadella and good market there. Can't remember name of beach but if you come across one where there is a mud available to rub on your body which you then rub off in the sea, it is definitely worth doing (if only for the photos)! Near Mahon there are two v good tennis clubs with clay courts. At the hotel they will be able to tell you name and location of good restaurants.

We were made to feel at home immediately. This is a proper Menorcan town house, beautifully restored but not airbrushed. Cool, simply firnished rooms branch from a large, light interior staircase. The plumbing works, the beds are comfortable, and there's a pervasive air of peace. Everything seemed easy-going - we were allowed to use the kitchen in the evening, and breakfast was a generous but unfussy event with pastries and extremely good coffee. Exploring the town was easily done on foot, and as we'd hired a car the hotel staff recommended beaches and restaurants and even found a tennis court for us.

Can't rate this inn highly enough. Went for a girls holiday towards the end of the season, in September.

It is situated in a tiny, very quiet street only minutes walk away from the bars and restaurants. The house is a spectacle in itself, lovingly restored and furnished with beautiful antiques. The rooms are enormous, the beds comfortable. Air conditioning all remote controlled. The family suite is like a large apartment.

But what differentiates Casa Alberti from most inns/bandbs/ from most is that you are genuinely welcome to come and go as you please (given keys on arrival) and use all the facilities, including the kitchen, terrace, library etc and treat it as your home.

Breakfast is pretty much whenever you want it (unlike most guest houses where it is over long before most people get up) and is a feast of fruits, fresh patisseries, breads, cereals, locally made jams etc and endless supplies of coffee. There is, during high season, a japanese cook in the evenings (though not while we were there).

One night, after a long tiring day at one of the beaches, we opted for a stay at home evening, instead of wandering out to one of the many restaurants within easy walking distance, and had the most delicious meal, sitting outside on the terrace, with all sorts of delicacies we had bought at the local supermarket. Popped on one of their cds and made ourselves right at home. It was perfect.

The couple who run Casa Alberti were absolutely charming and couldn't have been more helpful, giving us endless advice on where we could eat, which beaches were best, making bookings for us at the local tennis court. Nothing was too much trouble.. We felt welcomed as if we were family.

We hired a car from the airport (all of 10 minutes drive away), used Casa Alberti as our quiet refuge, and went off every day for an expedition in the car to different beaches. We did venture all the way across the island to Ciutadella, but Old Mao had far more charm. And Casa Alberti is the jewel of Old Mao.

The hotel is well located, central and within easy reach of the shops, restaurants and a short walk down to the port. There is also parking close by. The rooms are spacious, clean, with comfortable beds and well equipped bathrooms, with baths and showers. Breakfast is taken on the terrace and we were looked after by the lovely Marta, who also has a good knowledge of the surroundings and is very helpful in giving advice as to which beaches and restaurants to go to. The building is striking inside with a winding staircase centrally positioned. It has been carefully restored taking into account guests requirements such as books and games which are all in a very comfortable sitting room. It is a peaceful hotel with a great roof terrace, for sunbathing or watching the sun go down. The well equipped kitchen is available for guests to use in the evening.

It is a lovely place to stay - very special.
