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.

Great location and views!
âWe know Menorca well particularly the Es Castell area. We would have stayed at the Rey Carlos nearby where we have stayed twice before but we could not get the dates we wanted so we came here instead. We were not disappointed! We had a great corner room, 512 on the top floor with surround balcony and fab views. A bit tight on storage space but OK if you are good at organizing your space. Broadband a bit patchy in the room tho' and English TV channels on the TV broke up quite a bit. The air con in the room was the most effective we have ever encountered in a hotel but the fan speed was not adjustable so was a bit noisy. Pool area was excellent, plenty of sunbeds and no problem with people hogging them with towels all day! Nice bar area, again, great views! Food was not bad and ranged from pretty good to fair. Pretty good choice of dishes, fish generally good. Nice dining room, great panoramic views. We will definately come back. We think it has the edge on the Rey Carlos.â More

After Mis Sold Holiday transfer to here was like heaven
After the Playa Victoria at St Thomas this hotel in Mahon , the Agamenon at El Castle was the Oasis we were looking for. Clean, Well Presented. Very Good Staff, Excellent Reception Staff with a good understanding of what the customer wanted. The food was pleasantly presented by smart Dining Staff and the food was Excellent throughout our stay. The rooms were kept spotless, clean linen and good house keeping at all times. The pool area was clean and well maintained . The icing on the cake was the views of the harbour from either your balcony, the restaurant or from the sun terrace. The Bar and entertainment was also very good, so much so we have booked to go there Twice more in the coming year. WELL DONE AGAMENONMore
A fantastic Hotel
I just wanted to say this is the best hotel I have ever been in ( and I have stayed in many) with regard to the 'staff'. Everybody we encountered was friendly professional and went that extra mile. We were at the hotel when the roof collapsed but I must say Richard (the manager) and others dealt with the unexpected occurance professionally and quickly. We were kept up to date with developments (by letter and verbally). It was obvious to me and my husband they did care, apologising and all working together to limit disruption, breakfast was servied outside and snacks were laid on for two days as a way of apology the following two lunchtimes. We would definately return to this hotels cleanliness is of a high standard and the views from the hotel are amazing. The pool is a good size and the surrounding area is relaxing. Thank you LorraineMore
Booked the hotel last minute through Jet2 holidays for a sneaky weekend of sunshine before autumn sets in again. Hotel access good for both transfers from airport and getting in to Mahon. Arrived Saturday lunchtime. Room not ready as expected but welcoming staff pointed us to the pool area and took the time to suggest ideas for our (short stay). Rooms are bright and clean. Pool area beautiful and views excellent. Hotel arranged for a boat taxi to Mahon that evening which was a beautiful way to see the town. Warning - if you are planning a weekend away, Mahon centre seems shut on a Saturday evening and all day Sunday; however, there are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants on the harbour. Bars will book you a taxi back but the walk is quite easy, Sunday morning gave us the chance to sample breakfast which was fantastic until the ceiling collapsed in the room above, meaning we had to vacate the hotel until it was deemed safe. Something completely out of the hotel's hands but they managed it very professionally. We walked into Es Castel whilst the cleaning up began and on return managed to get a late breakfast by the pool. Sunday evening gave us the chance to wander along the harbour front of Calles Fonts where there was a real buzz with lots of locals out for the night. Back to the airport Monday morning wishing we could have stayed longer but the Agamemnon and Menorca proved to be a great spot for a quick getaway to the sun. Looking forward to returning for a longer stay and possibly sampling their sister hotel in Ciutedella.More

building work outside my balcony
Hi The roof caved in on an extension just outside my balcony.Did the hotel care about me - no.I was told it has to be repaired and they had no other rooms.Did the Thomson rep care- no.I was an inconvenience until I bought a tour.I paid 1200 for a week's stay because I am a single traveller and to be honest I feel I have been robbed. I cannot use the balcony and have the curtains drawn which the hide the view I paid for.Very very disappointed The food is lukewarm but edibleMore
