It is not difficult to see why so many people return to this hotel each year. The location is good, the rooms adequate and the staff generally helpful. However our rating is based on our first time experience of this Hotel and indeed Minorca. The Hotel was full when we arrived and we were offered an upgrade from a sea view room to a Garden Suite. Whilst this was spacious it was situated in an annexe outside the main hotel grounds and bounded by footpaths used by the public. As the room was on the ground floor and detached from the Hotel it did not give a feeling of Security. The room was in need of refurbishment and the bathroom dated making it difficult to appear soptlessly clean. The room would be better described as a 'Family room'.
The decor of the Hotel is early 1970's and whilst generally clean and tidy it is due a make-over to compete with Hotels of a similar standard.
Most of the regular guests seemed to be satisfied with the food on offer in the Restaurant which only offers Buffet service. The range of food on offer is good but the quality of individual dishes dishes was poor. Many of the meat dishes were inedible due to the quality of the meat and the lack of expertise in the Chef. The fish dishes were occasionally OK but generally the quality was poor and lacked freshness. Would have preferred a much less range of options and higher quality of igredients.
We did have lunch at this hotel's sister hotel the Port Mahon and found the food to be much better in terms of quantity and quality and even received a biscuit with our coffee!
