“First time here, won't be the last”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights at the start of our holiday. Only a short drive from the airport. Lovely hotel within short walk of beautiful Mahon harbour. Staff were so friendly, hotel was just gorgeous and the breakfasts were amazing. Such a lovely spot and so quiet, Will definitely stay again. They also arranged a hire car for us which was delivered to the hotel and much cheaper than pre-booking. Lovely start to a 12 day holiday on the beautiful island.

Room Tip: If possible try and book a room with a balcony overlooking the harbour - nice with a G&T in the...

We had the most wonderful ten days in June in this well situated and elegant hotel. Everything was just perfect, bright, clean and incredibly friendly, you couldn’t pass a member of staff without receiving a smile and a cheery ‘Ola!’ Our room was spotless and obviously cleaned thoroughly each day.
The hotel is definitely not family friendly as the age of the clientele ranged between late forties to early seventies and the arrival of a young couple with a small child brought many sighs and tuts of displeasure at the young one’s cheerful though noisy antics and we were pleased to see them depart after a couple of days – and I’m sure they were equally pleased to go.
The breakfast buffet was varied and plentiful, everything that should be hot was, and that which should be chilled was done so, including the sparkling Cava in an ice bucket for that early morning Bucks Fizz!
A descent down the steps opposite the hotel to the marina led to a mile long riviera of café’s bars and restaurants fronting the most picturesque of harbours full of sailing boats and luxury motor yachts and the choice of places to eat was stunning, from typical Spanish Tapa’s bars, steak houses, Chinese and Japanese cuisine, full English breakfasts or simple baguettes and sandwiches A lift is available to take you back up to the hotel level and a must after a full stomach and a bottle (or two) of wine.
We ate there for the first three days before deciding to try the hotel’s own buffet style dinner ... and never looked back! The choice was amazing and changed daily, with fresh fish served in a variety of ways, steaks, chops, stews, salads, curries, local and English food, lovely desserts, local cheeses and the most delicious bread all washed down with very reasonably priced local wines. A discount could also be had by buying tokens for a minimum of three nights dining, though after the first night we didn’t need much convincing.
20th June was my birthday and on arriving back in our room after a day out we discovered a chilled bottle of Cava and two glasses on the table with a small card reading ‘Happy Birthday’. I began to tell my wife off for informing them but she assured me that she hadn’t said a word and they must have gleaned the information from our passports – an indication of the quality of service in this lovely hotel.
Menorca is an ideal holiday destination for those ‘of a certain age’ and Mahon the Jewel in the Crown, only a short, pleasant and scenic ten minute walk from the hotel. English papers are in the shops at about 9am and there can’t be a more pleasant way to spend a morning than sitting in an outdoor café with the daily papers and just watching the World go by.

Room Tip: A front facing balcony is a must to enjoy the stunning views

We've just returned from our first visit to Menorca and, obviously, our first time at this hotel.
We used a Thomson package and took a room with a sea view.
From our arrival at Reception, through to experiences of the dinner buffet, breakfast buffet, lunch, bar and our room, we couldn't have asked for more from attentive, helpful staff.
The location is excellent, close by the lift down to the harbourside, and gives access to any number of good restaurants the whole length of the quay.

Stayed for the third year running in early June and enjoyed lovely sunny, warm days with no rain at all. Again this hotel suited us perfectly, great location for harbour and town centre, peacefull and relaxing, clean and tidy and friendly staff. We booked before March and were given a free upgrade to evening meals-saving us over £200. Although both only in our mid fifties we found the new lift welcoming! Although we didn't get the room we requested we have no complaints over the one given, top floor overlooking the harbour which gives a special morning wake-up. As usual enjoyed great banter with Martin the barman who is due to retire this year. We found the one beer on tap a bit tiresome and would have loved a real Ale similar to what we have at home! The Gin measures were anything upto a triple in one drink, be warned if you only like a little tipple. We ambled along the coast path to Es Castell which took about 20mins, not a great deal there for us but different to the centre of Mahon. We will certainly return and enjoy the comforts of The Port Mahon.

The hotel has a wonderful setting looking over the inlet and islands.
Room we had was very comfortable and immaculately clean.
Breakfast was excellent with an attentive a friendly staff. We ate dinner thewre only once, and are not fans of buffet dinners, but this one was very good with a varied selection of dishes.
The staff are all very helpful and friendly and the ones on reception, excellent.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Romms at the front have varandasand terraces and staggering views.

This is our third stay at the Port Mahon hotel and we will be returning again this October. Nothing ever seems too much trouble and everyone will more than go out of their way to assist and help. A total inspiration!
My wife and I find that our holiday stay experiences are none other than “home from home” offering excellent catering cuisine value for money. If for no other reason the Port Mahon hotel should be visited for its superb location and setting offering world class views across the Port Mahon harbour. What more on this earth could one honestly ask for?
There is a great charm and tranquillity experienced at this hotel which we believe would be very difficult to match due to the unique combination of friendliness, helpfulness, courtesy, warmth, kindness and professional calibre provided by all it’s staff members.

We always thoroughly enjoy all our holiday stays on the island of Menorca but sincerely believe this hotel is the core reason contributing to the quality of relaxation and overall enjoyment experienced during our visits.

Room Tip: Harbour sea view with balcony or suite if you can afford it. Half board is a must, no need to visit...

Been using this hotel for 17 years, think we may like it! It is in an ideal location, close to local shops and restaurants, within easy walking distance to the town of Mahon, with it`s markets, shops and cafes.
The hotel itself is situated on high ground over the port of Mahon, giving wonderful views of the harbour entrance, watching the evening moon appear over the horizon is not to be missed.
All the rooms are comfortable and clean, with room service if so desired, and the friendly room cleaning staff are a bonus too, always smiling.
The staff at the hotel are there to help you enjoy your stay, and thats exactly what they do. no complaints from me on that one.
You can always find something to eat from the hotel`s varied menus, whether it be breakfast, midday lunch or evening buffet style meal, the evening buffet has greatly improved from previous years, they have a great wine menu but, most of it is Spanish. shame, would have like to have seen some new world wines or even guest wines.
The swimming pool is one of the cleanest that we have ever used, and well used, without being too busy, there is also a plentiful supply of sunbeds, we always find a couple to use, having said that, some guests still reserve their sunbeds, then clear off somewhere else, annoying or what!!
This hotel is not really for children, not much for them to do at the hotel itself, although there were a few here this June, it is predominantly for the older clientele, somewhat quiet, just the way we like it.
Evening entertainment, twice a week, well, what can one say! not the best we have seen, somewhat off key but hey, once you have had a few drinks it sounds ok!
We enjoyed the free wifi this year, it worked well in most areas of the hotel, even the swimming pool area.

Anyway we enjoyed ourselves, it was a wonderful holiday, the weather was lovely, we were well looked after, what more do you want. Thanks to all at the Port Mahon.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have a good sea view.
