This is a very modern and stylish hotel and it was ideal for our holiday exploring Menorca. My wife and I stayed in a very similar Barcelo hotel (in Mallorca) last year, so we knew what to expect of the room style and arrangements. As other reviewers have reported, the rooms overlooking Mahon estuary have tremendous views, especially when a large cruise ship sails past your balcony! The rooms with a view over the pool do have more sunshine in the evenings though.
Much of the hotel accommodation appears to be booked via Thompson Holidays, and the clientele during our May trip was mainly over 60. Being early in the season, many guests stayed in the hotel in the evenings, being entertained by the acts arranged by Thomsons. I'm not big on hotel entertainment, but the Thomson team do deserve a special mention - they were friendly, helpful and professional, and not the least bit pushy. The entertainment was gentle and sophisticated as opposed to in your face and tacky. The hotel itself is stylish, modern and very clean. Quality tiles, marble and glass abound everywhere.
We stayed on a half-board basis. Breakfast is the usual choice of fruit, cereals, cold meats, cheese, bacon, sausages, eggs etc, with omelettes made to order. Dinner is adequate - I would say value for money, and certainly not haute cuisine. We also ordered lunch by the pool on one occasion - it was made to order, delicious and value for money. Drinks in the hotel bar are reasonable too. You'll get cheaper drinks in the local bars, but not the same service.
The hotel is a short walk from Cala Fonts where there are several restaurants, bars and cafes right beside the yacht moorings - charming and a pleasant alternative to the hotel for that special occasion.
I also have to mention the hotel staff - they too were helpful, friendly and professional. My birthday cards were on display in our room and we came back to a birthday cake and greeting from the hotel manager - a nice touch that was greatly appreciated.
Menorca is a lovely island and well worth a visit. The Barcelo Hamilton makes a great base to explore from, and has the advantage of an outdoor pool, and indoor pool, and jacuzzi's on the roof sun terrace too. I would have no hesitation in either staying here again or recommending to others.
