Right by the water’s edge on the south side of Mahon harbour, the Hotel Agamenon offers sweeping sea views. The tranquil atmosphere here is largely down to its location on the outskirts of Es Castell. It’s a short walk into the centre of this charming town, whose central square is lined with Georgian buildings – a nod to Es Castell’s beginnings as a British military town. For dining, try Cales Fonts, the fishing harbour that’s a hub of seafood restaurants. Or, head into the centre of Mahon – the island’s capital is a 30-minute walk away.
At the hotel itself, a large rectangular pool takes pride of place in the middle of the grounds. Surrounding archways draped in trailing plants open up views of the sea, and steps lead to a terrace. Inside, public rooms make the most of the views, with floor-to-ceiling windows in the buffet restaurant. The same applies to the bedrooms, all of which open out on to a balcony with sea views.

We went to the Hotel Agamenon for a week's stay as a couple in July 2015. The hotel is in a great position overlooking the main channel to the port of Mahon (transfer time from airport 20 minutes). We received excellent service from Richard (and Alba) all week, any requests e.g. spare key card, jug of milk, cups etc were accomodated. We stayed in room 305 overlooking the bay and car park, an excellent room although not much drawer space. This was a good choice of room as the sun rises early and quickly heats the room up, but later after the sun moves to the other side of the hotel the room cools down nicely for siesta in the afternoon.The sun moves to the other side of the hotel which overlooks the swimming pool and Mahon which means these rooms, although of an equal standard become unbearably hot in the afternoon even with the air con on full blast. During our stay it was so hot that we had the air con on 24/7 for the entire stay... and we were on the 'cool side'. The restaurant is excellent, with a good choice of buffet style fare and a gala night on Thursdays, all this with fine views over the bay. There is a well stocked bar, and house wine is of a high standard. However there were a few niggles.:- The high price of bottled water, beware there are no local shops which sell water in the vicinity. If you are hiring a car best to stock up at the local Spar, about 3/4 mile walk away. Breakfast and Dinner start late 8.00 AM and 7.30 PM. The entire island seems to eat late.If you have an early flight or trip continental breakfast will be set up on request at 7.30 (7.00 would be better as many flight departures leave the hotel at 8.00AM) It is difficult to get a small snack at lunchtime. The best way was to order a meal and split it between us..no problem from staff. The balcony light does not switch off until 11.00PM. Shame if you want to watch the harbour comings and goings at night without being lit up. The pool is excellent and very warm at this time of year. There is also a garden and patio area where you can look out over the bay while relaxing.However there are a few issues. At this time (July 2015) the flats overlooking the pool are being renovated so be prepared for some daytime noise, although to us it was not intrusive.There has also been a problem regarding non guests using the sun loungers and pool although this was quickly sorted by the hotel team. To sum up we found it a good hotel, mainly British with many returning guests. The staff, rooms and facilities were excellent.More

Lovely traditional spanish hotel
We returned yesterday from a very relaxing weeks break in this very friendly, peaceful hotel. The staff are the most friendliest, helpful staff we have met. Always a smile and very polite. Richard on reception always helpful, Angelese in the restaurants and pool bar with her big smile and sunny personality. Our bedroom had a lovely view across to Cala Longa, and of the boats and cruise liners and ferries coming and going. Ideal to walk into lovely Es Castell and to Cala Fonts the picturesque harbour with its selection of bars and spanish restuarants and little shops. No Macdonalds or tacky bucket and spade shops here, its the real spain with friendly spanish people. The pool area in the hotel is large, very clean and no problem getting a sun bed. Shame on the ones that still have to reserve their spot at breakfast time!! No music blaring out and being hassled to do a quiz or do water aerobics, just peace and quiet in pretty surroundings. We hope to return in the not too distant future.More
A wonderful relaxing holiday at Hotel Agamenon
My husband & I had 11 days at the Hotel Agamenon at the end of June & could not fault it. The staff were very friendly & efficient ( special mention for Jose the Barman - lovely chap) & the room was comfortable with beautiful views & cleaned daily. The pool area was large enough for the number of guests with extra beds on a grassed area. Food very good. Es Castell itself was a superb base & a lovely scenic small town. The marina area was very pretty but you paid extra at the restaurants & bars. We found the smaller cove ( La Mola I think) really pretty with a lovely restaurant. We will definitely be going back!More

Excellent waterfront hotel
The hotel is set in an ideal location if you want to visit Mahon or Es Castell. We could walk to Es Castell with its lovely waterside location and restaurants which took about 15 minutes. Mahon is a little bit further and we drove. We had a room on 4th Floor with balcony and window with an amazing view overlooking the water front. The room was a good size, was clean, comfortable bed and clean sheets. The staff were very friendly and breakfast buffet had good selection. Pool clean and garden area overlooked water front. Peaceful atmosphere which was perfect for us.More
