“Fab - U - Lous”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

I LOVED this hotel! I'm usually more a fan of self catering accommodation than hotels as I find that they can be quite impersonal, but that was not at all the case at the Rey Carlos. The staff here were amazing. It was almost the end of the season and they must have been ready for their winter break, but they never let it show. We're not exactly difficult customers, but nothing was too much trouble. They always went out of their way to greet us and to ask about our stay. Facilities are much better suited to this hotel now being "Adults only". There are lots of lovely seating areas in both the shade and the sun, inside and out, and plenty of sunbeds available. We were on a bed and breakfast board basis. Breakfast is buffet style, but the choice was fantastic. There was fresh fruit, bread with jams, cheese and meats, a large selection of sweet and savoury pastries, cereals, 3 or 4 different types of bread, a large choice of cooked items, and omelettes/crepes cooked to order. We also ate here twice in the evenings from the buffet which was equally as delicious, and had an a la carte lunch of a delicious salad once during our stay. We charged these additional meals and quite a few drinks to our room and were astounded at how cheap the bill was at the end of our stay. I'd have had more if I'd known!! The rooms are spacious and well appointed with a fantastic shower. Towels are provided for use at the pool/beach. The hotel is on one edge of Es Castell, and we timed our walk from the hotel to the edge of Mahon harbour at 30 minutes, but the bus is easy and goes from a stop just 5 mins from the hotel. All in all a fantastic stay. I'd happily recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Our room (332) had a "side Sea View", but this was not one where you have to really crane...

Very relaxing holiday- hotel rooms very good , staff very friendly, lovely setting , my only suggestion is that just because it is the end of the season they should still try to keep to the standards that they would have all year round , Ie choice of food was not the same, and lacked a little entertainment so I'm told , but on the whole I would recommend this hotel, and resort. X. Keep up the good work. Xxxxxxx

We have just returned from a 1 week stay and we had a marvellous relaxing time at this hotel. From the moment we arrived we where greeted with friendly smiles and this continued all week, not one grumpy face . Reception staff lovely, restaurant staff very attentive and friendly . We where on the 3 rd floor and had a lovely view of the harbour. The rooms where spotless and had tea,coffee and even a carton of milk provided . Large walk in shower with rainfall shower. The hotel and resort was very quiet as it was end of season but no queues for meals or drinks. Short bus ride to Mahon if you want something a bit livelier. Will certainly return to this hotel.

Room Tip: We had room on 3rd floor with sunset view and still had lovely view of harbour. Got sun late after...

My husband and I stayed here for a week of rest, relaxation and reading in September. Excellent find I have to say by him and would highly recommend this hotel - all the staff were of the highest quality nothing was ever too much trouble. Great to be able to be only 20 minutes or so from the airport!! Breakfasts were a feast and cater for absolutely all tastes and sets one up for the day! 1st visit to Menorca and will definitely will be returning - loved it!!

Room Tip: Would recommend one looking over the sea!

Stayed at the hotel for a week ending 19th October 2013.
The hotel was excellent in every aspect - clean, good food and amenities.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
The location was excellent in that we used the local bus to visit a number of other towns and villages on the island of menorca.
Finally, the view from the balcony was breathtaking of the sea and surrounding countryside.

Room Tip: Would favour a sunrise bedroom on the third floor.

We booked this hotel as a Jet2 holiday package, having done our research and deciding that this hotel was our best option for a week's stay in Menorca. The hotel certainly lives up to its reputation and the staff would get 6 stars as they make you feel so welcome; they are warm and friendly without being intrusive, and it was a pleasure to relax on the terrace, enjoying the harbour views without being constantly asked if we wanted something from the bar. You are guaranteed a peaceful, quiet relaxing stay, as the hotel is adults only. We were not expecting any evening entertainment so it was a pleasant surprise that on three of the evenings there was a band with a singer out on the terrace. The food was excellent on the Saturday Menorcan night with specially recommended local wines and it was very good throughout the rest of the week with plenty of choice of meats and seafood. There was less choice for vegetarians but there was a different option each evening, and always a great selection of cheeses. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with a fabulous rainfall shower. Although our booking was for a sunset view room as standard we were actually given a side view room, but this was fine as the bedroom did not get too hot as it did not receive direct sunshine throughout the day (as some rooms did) and we still had a view of the harbour. The hotel is a 10 minute walk to the bus stop into Mahon (buses every half hour) and about 15 minutes walk to the picturesque harbour of Es Castell, surrounded by bars and restaurants. It was possible to take a water taxi direct from Es Castell harbour to the fort or to the island, without having to go into Mahon. We are definitely planning to return to the Carlos III.

Room Tip: Our side view balcony never got the sun as it was north facing, so if you want the sun on your balco...
