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.

would not recommend this hotel
We stayed here in October last year and was very disappointed. All the Guest in the Hotel apart from a couple from Liverpool were with Saga, they had a good deal, they paid for Two Weeks but they stayed for Three. Part of the Lounge was set aside for them only. We were made to feel like outsiders. I am a Pensioner myself but felt quite young to the people there, they were very unfriendly,they made us feel as though we had invaded their space, as they were very clicky. They state that it's a family Hotel, but there were no children there. I am glad we never took our 4 year old granddaughter with us she would have been the only child there and l dont think the Saga lot would have appreciated that. We feel the food that they were serving up each day was below standard, In fact very poor for a Four Star Hotel, we feel because It was at the end of the season that they were trying to get rid of the food they had left, a lot of the food was the same every day, If you liked Fish or Chicken In greasy sauces or gravey and luke warm you would be fine. On our first evening there we had some soup from the couldren and we were told by another Guest that It was broken and had been for several days so the soup was cold, they put the chips on a tray and left them on a table with no heat so they were stone cold. people came In and looked at the food and left without eating which we did most evening. We had no Thomson Rep in the Hotel to complain to the only good side was the staff, who were very friendly ,especialy the young lady on reception , also the bar staff. We spent over £1,000 on this Holiday and feelL we were done, We went to the Cala Bona Hotel ln May last year and that hotel is only a Three Star but was far superior to this hotel,so in our opinion it should only be a Two Star, and that's being generous.Overall as Saga had a special deal for that month we feel that it should not be sold to other tour operators, we went through thomson and it should state on their website about it being taken over by saga for that month.More

Three wonderful weeks !!!
We arrived at this hotel and were overwhelmed by the staff, absolutely brilliant people. The hotel really knew how to look after its clients.!! We were All Inclusive and every thing was ready for us. The rooms were ok but sparse, but as my wife said we only sleep there !! Comfortable beds. FREE WIFI !!!!!!! The chefs did a really excellent job of keeping us fed, the variety of food available exceeded our expectations. There is only one niggle..... Could we have tea making in the rooms?? This was our fiirst trip to Minorca but not our last. IThe hotel was the place for relaxation and chilling out,Thank you Set Hotels for a terrific holiday Cilli and Steve..... See you next year.More

Good hotel & Food
We spent a week in May at this Hotel……after a difficult flight from Manchester due to a 4.5 hr delay we arrived too late for the evening meal, however the staff did provide us with a lighter meal and drinks at no cost which was very welcome. The hotel is very clean and in an excellent, quiet location. Great views of the inlet to Mahon harbour, also good gardens and plenty of space/area to relax. We arranged our own trip and were not there with Saga even though we are in our 60's…we didn't notice any difference in the way we treated to other guests and things were just fine. Recently we have stopped hiring cars on holiday as they are a distraction and nuisance with driving, parking etc…..so we have started using public transport this year… Sorrento, Cadiz and Menorca on this trip…..the hotel is a short walk from a regular, air conditioned and cheap bus service to the main bus station in Mahon where you can explore the city or get another bus to just about anywhere you want. We found the buses clean, all air-con, regular, punctual and reliable, also well priced……who needs a car ??…. The hotel entertainment at night isn't something that interests us but it seemed reasonable enough as we passed by. The food was very good, large choice at breakfast and evening meal….plenty of alternatives to the vast choice of fish so please don't think you will be stuck with fish alone as you won't. Very quiet at night whilst we were there….pleasant and fairly affluent looking neighbourhood with no discos, mopeds and rowdy goings on to upset you. Es Castell is a treat….there was a fiesta/ carnival during our stay with a large stage in the main square and all sorts of different things going on at night…so overall a good place to stay and it gets my recommendation…….More
An Hotel to recommend
We had a 2-week all-inclusive holiday at the Agamenon wth Saga, and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. The staff were extremely friendly and always ready to help in any way posssible...even the drinks were generous in size !! The food was invariably excellent, with some really unusual and very tasty fish dishes which we especially enjoyed. This is without doubt the cleanest Hotel we have ever stayed in, both in the public area and in our bedroom. This had a side-sea view and being at a lower level did not have such good view as from on high. A good tip....ask for a room near the top of the Hotel where the views are quite excellent. The only dowside to the holiday was the quite long walk to the bus/coach stop. The walk into Es Castell was pleasant and not too steep at any point and the town has greatly improved since we last visited seven years ago. Altogether a very good holiday for someone of the Saga generation...possibly not so for someone young or looking for excitement and night clubs. But for someone looking for a quiet, peaceful holiday in an excellent Hotel, this gets our firm recommendation.More

Just returned from three weeks at this wonderful hotel we were made to feel at home immediately the staff could not do enough to please and that includes every member of staff, bar, reception,maids, restaurant if I have missed anyone please forgive me. The location is superb with absolutely fantastic views over the magnificent harbour and island. The town is also lovely - being a tipical Spanish town with no tourist tat shops.Food very good and always hot and lots of choice. All in all a wonderful holiday - thank you Agamemnon.
