This hotel is fantastic, the service is impeccable. The food is absolutely outstanding. During our stay we had croquettes, veal escalope, tuna tartare, seafood rice, mussels and suckling pig - all superb! For this level of hospitality you would expect high prices but actually it is very reasonable. Our hotel room, a basic double, was luxurious with a huge comfy bed , huge jacuzzi bath and everything needed for a perfect stay including mini-bar. We will definitely return and would definitely recommend this hotel. Absolutely outstanding!

Alcaufar Vell is a wonderfully situated boutique and luxury hotel set in the wonderful Menorcan landscape. It's a short distance (c. 10-15mins drive) from Mahon airport, with plenty of surrounding towns for travellers to explore for evening meals. The main house is absolutely beautiful, and the double rooms offer plenty of space for two people. There is a nice swimming pool, just a step away from the main house, with free roaming tortoises as a surprising, but pleasant addition. The hotel is sufficiently distanced from civilisation to enjoy an incredibly relaxing and peaceful stay, however I would recommend hiring a car, as this is by far the easiest method of transport on the island. The food in the restaurant in the evening is very good and very reasonably priced. I would recommend trying the food in the evening at least once and then exploring the surrounding towns for restaurants as there are some good restaurants all across the island. Breakfast was also good, with a number of options to choose from, and a hot food option. The first morning service was quite slow, taking over an 1 hour to get all our food. During our stay the hotel was booked for a wedding for one of the days. Given the size of the hotel (I would guess c. 20-30 rooms), a 80-100 person wedding felt quite disruptive. The staff didn't make it clear to us that there would be a wedding happening during our stay until I asked them the 30mins before the wedding guests were due to arrive. The staff did try to be accommodating once I drew this to their attention. Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the hotel, and for the majority of the time felt incredibly relaxed. My only fault would be that we felt at times the service was slightly inconsistent and also given the size of the hotel, also having a wedding occurring during a guest's stay does feel disruptive.

Having read negative reviews of this place I felt the need to say we enjoyed it. The welcome was very friendly. All the staff were efficient and pleasant. The room was huge and very comfortable. Would have been nice if the bar or lounge were bigger. Breakfasts were excellent even if the way we had to choose from various categories on the menu was a bit unusual, but appreciate that by doing it this way there was no waste. One afternoon I sat outside to read and almost straight way a waiter came to ask if I wanted a drink. The restaurant was nice quality but for me it felt rather hotel like than restaurant. On the last evening it was busier than usual and we had to wait quite a while to be served and when it came the waiter had mixed our order with another table which really should not have happened at a place at this level. Neither of us complained and just struggled and got on with it but that was the only disappointment with our stay.

Stayed here on half-board just over a week ago & had lovely time. The characterful & quirky historical feel of the hotel & gardens just suited us and generally we found the staff very friendly and warm. My bed was huge & so comfortable. Breakfasts were copious & delicious with huge choice. I greatly enjoyed my dinners too.

It has taken me months to begin to write my review firstly because Alcaufar Vell lied and led me to believe I would be compensated and secondly because we have been so upset. In August 2021 we booked my daughters wedding at Alcaufar Vell. We have a home in S'Algar and the venue is dear to us as a family. My late husband (the brides father) loved it here. Pep the wedding co ordinator was very disorganised but we know Menorca and the laid back attitude. We pushed to pay the deposit and sent over thirty emails. Pep replied saying not to worry he was preparing a quote which would be sent after October. We repeatedly asked to book rooms for the guests and we were ignored. Yes there were alarm bells but my daughter wanted to have her wedding here. In September I went back out to Menorca and called with our wedding planner at the venue which was in a state of repair. There was even a dead rat on the restaurant floor. We raised concerns and were told there was work to be done over the winter. Pep continued to ignore emails through the Winter. The invites were sent out and preparations were under way. In May I was in Menorca and asked Pep if we could finalise the menu and go for a meal. He told me they were fully booked! I rang and was told they only had two bookings for that night so I booked in. The hotel looked a little fresher. At this point we had still not been given the quote or deposit price to pay despite over 30 emails. In June I paid the deposit and asked to clarify the menu. Two days later I received an email cancelling the wedding! This was six weeks before the date! I had to fly out to Menorca to sort another venue and I had one choice! No one wanted a booking in July. Club Menorca came up trumps and was totally amazing. However I was thousands out of pocket as the new venue was thirty minutes away I had to book coaches, cars etc. My florist pulled out as she couldn't manage the steps at the new venue costing me thousands. The list is endless as to the hassles I had. Alcaufar Vell had their solicitor contact me and offer compensation. We met him in July and he literally called me a liar and reduced me to tears, However it looked as though Alcaufar Vell were going to pay my costs until in October we had an email to say they would pay nothing. They ruined my daughters wedding for me. and cost me dearly. Club Menorca rescued us and it could not have been better but what Alcaufar Vell did was unforgivable and I ask people to consider before they book as these vile people just do not care!

We arrived here for 4 nights and having looked around were profoundly disappointed. The grounds are neglected and the building in a state of disrepair. The lawns are all unmown and there are weeds everywhere - the pool area grass is uncut with some old stained plastic furniture scattered around . The welcome was far from effusive and the place felt sad - very few guests and a real down at heel atmosphere. I cancelled and rather than receive an apology or request for explanation I received simply an acknowledgement. No idea what is going on here but it feels like it’s going out of business.

Spacious rooms in either the old house or converted farm buildings Extensive grounds with great walk down to the coast and village . Pleasant helpful staff . But probably one of the worse breakfasts we have ever had in a hotel of this quality. So called "fresh"breakfast at 13 Euro consisted of a couple of small slices of stale bread plus some unripe fruit and a slice of cheese. The evening meals were also disappointing and were either overcooked or so raw that we rejected it. Should do better !!

We came here for our honeymoon at the end of September and had an absolutely lovely stay. The hotel grounds are beautiful, quiet, surrounded by nature, and well-kept. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. They restock the mini-bar (which is complimentary) daily, and we found everything we needed in the toiletries and other amenities. The Wifi was slow (still enough to send messages/emails), but we found this to be a welcome invitation to disconnect for a few days. The breakfast options were simple but delicious, fresh, and filling. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant twice and enjoyed our meals. The dining room is rustic and charming, and the food is great but perhaps not something I would drive all the way to the hotel if I weren't already staying there. I did have one of the best espresso martinis ever. All in all, we had a wonderful, relaxing, and rejuvenating time at the hotel here and would definitely come back next time.

I am going to echo a recent review. This place could be fantastic. The hotel is beautiful, the setting is stunning, the rooms are spacious and with a huge bed. But, the WiFi is appalling. We briefly got connected once in 4 days - how is that possible in this day and age? The breakfast is very, very plain just being bread and jam and a croissant. And it would be lovely to sit outside to eat breakfast apart from the plague of wasps. We had a lovely and amazing few days on the island & did enjoy the hotel but it really could be better with some simple improvement.
