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.

It has taken me a long time to get round to writing a review, and I never have before, but I feel I must! We went for the first time in July 2013 and had a wonderful time, the hotel is fab and kept to a really nice standard and the staff are lovely! We loved it so much we went last summer as well. It is one of the nicest settings to sit back and relax (especially for people like us who arent so keen on getting sandy) and its easily accessible to loads of gorgeous little shops in es castell as well as being easy to get to everywhere else on the island! Plans to go back this summer too!More
Oh Happy Days
My third year running and each visit has been an improvement on the last. New windows, new furnishings, exterior colour change but the same lovely staff. I travelled with Saga holidays on each occasion and the attention paid to us was exceptional. My holiday consists of a lazy morning reading, a stroll to Es Castell early afternoon then back for a wide choice of food at the excellent buffet dinner. Restful, peaceful and such a pleasure. There are a number of lovely places to visit but you would be hard pushed to beat the view across the water from the hotel lounge and watching the cruise and ferry ships on their way to Mahon. Finally the staff: each and everyone of them is courteous hard working and dedicated to making your stay memorable.More

Keep away in September and October if you are not with SAGA
The hotel is spotlessly clean, the staff are excelent especially the receptionist Cille, but from there it all goes down hill. The restaurant is like a works canteen and the food served for breakfast was terrible. Plastic orange juice, greasy bacon, luke warm beans. We did not eat in the hotel in the evening as the breakfast was sufficient to put us off. The pool looked lovely but we didn't venture in. The saga guests rushed down at the crack of dawn to put towels on the beds round it anyway so no chance for us. The sunbeds were really uncomfortable and if you want a towel either take your own or you have to rent one from the hotel. We are both over 50 ... but I have never met so many unfriendly English people as the Saga trip members that had taken over the hotel ... Hotel Carlos III for us next year far more up market and the same price too.More
