Petit Mao is a collection of friends held together for the same affinity: to project a new concept of hospitality. Petit Mao hotel is right in the center of the historical neighborhood of Mao, in a 18th century manor house constructed during the illustrated Mao...We are fairly close to plenty of beaches and only 15min far from the airport...

We found this quaint little hotel by accident when looking for somewhere to stay in Mahon and we were not dissapointed. Nestled amongst the narrow streets and a stone's throw from the main centre, this is a place not to miss. The room we had was hidden down the bottom of the garden, but it was so peaceful you could have been in the middle of the countryside, not a city centre. But you get a feel for being in a traditional house and it's simple yet very comfortable furnishings and atmosphere. We have been frequent visitors to the island over the last few years and will definitely be back at Petit Mao.

Hotel is a townhouse in the center of Mahon, so location is great. There is no reception but everything is organized on a personal level to your convenience. Breakfast at communal table with other guests which gives a lovely atmosphere. Its just a lovely place to stay, it feels more like a friends house than a hotel... Great breakfast with local - organic produce with even Oat milk, lovely little sunny garden with a pool, great taste with regards to furniture. Nothing mainstream. Best to see for yourself... ; )

Petit Mao is in the historical part of Mahon allowing to walk into this wonderfull town. Ignasi was warmly welcoming us and helping us a lot during our trip. Breakfast is so good. Ideal address for a hotel like a home !

We stayed here with friends (we had 5 out of the 6 rooms) and we could have not have chosen a better place to stay. Olga went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. We loved everything about it, the rooms, the breakfasts, the garden and the pool. We can’t wait to come back!

One of the most charming boutique hotels I’ve ever stayed in. It felt more like a home rather than a hotel, and Olga the manager made us feel so very welcome like part of the family and gave some great restaurant tips. The hotel is in an historic townhouse in centre of old town on a quiet street yet only moments from the hustle and bustle. The hotel has lots of amazing original features which have been retained and the owner has an incredible eye for design with some truly individual pieces of vintage and mid century modern furniture. The owner even took us round to show us his other hotel just round the corner that he has just opened which was amazing too! Breakfasts were simple yet delicious. And a real great attribute was the refreshing lap pool in the narrow courtyard garden behind the hotel. Will definitely be visiting again in the Spring. Mahon and Menorca in general was a real pleasant suprise. Beautiful scenery, quiet roads, stunning beaches and coves, friendly locals and bustling Mahon a great short city break.
