This is a lovely hotel in a beautiful location overlooking Mahon Harbour so there is always plenty to look at. The hotel has a lovely terraced garden overlooking the water then up some steps is a spotlessly clean pool area with bar and lunch service. Everything in the hotel is spotless and all the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We didn't experience any problems with Cili as the previous reviewer did, in fact she was very helpful with information and directions etc. Our room was comfortable. It had a fridge and had effective but fairly noisy air conditioning.The food was very good both at breakfast and dinner with a varied selection at both meals.
This may be a Saga type hotel at certain times of the year but this is not the case in late July and August. There were a lot of young Spanish couples, some with very young children and also British families with teenage children. This wasn't a problem for us but some guests were obviously surprised. A pity some British families in our second week felt the need to 'reserve' groups of sun loungers before they had breakfast; some of which were not used at all!
The hotel is very close to Mahon and you can walk into the town or catch a bus at the end of the road. You can also wander down to very pretty Cales Fonts where there is a variety of bars and restaurants.
We found it a very peaceful spot and will definitely be back.More

Very friendly staff and airy reception. Rooms were clean with nice balcony. Services and staff all extremely helpful. Breakfast and evening meals were all standard fayre in this type of hotel- Plentiful and good choice for even the fussiest eater. If I had any criticism of the food, it would be to have an option of Spanish food one evening (paella etc)
Poolside lunch and drinks all very good also.
Free WiFi... speed was a bit slow but, hey, it's free!
Transport into Mahon was local bus - the bus stop is about a 7 min walk. Fare is â¬1.75 (2015) and is easy to use. Coming back- look out for the windmill!
We also hired a car for a few days which was great to visit some of the beaches
Evening in the bar area was very quiet and little to no atmosphere. Hardly any guests sat there for some reason. 2 nights there were entertainment (local bands) which were entertaining for all the wrong reasons- in fact the Friday night turn even filled the bar with local people dancing... actually they completely took over which was a little intimidating but entertaining non the less. Table service in the bar area would have been a nice touch.
On the whole, this is a good place for a relaxing and quiet break...clean with friendly staffMore

A Great Hotel! But...
We stayed here on a girly holiday for a week. The hotel and pool was very clean and the breakfast offered a variety of choice with a fantastic view! The hotel was in walking distance to Cala Fonts a beautiful port with plenty of shops and restaurants with a lovely atmosphere. However the staff were most unfriendly and unhelpful particularly Cilli who refused to book our transfer to the airport. The hotel on the whole lacked atmosphere there was not even a touch of music in the breakfast room, poolside or bar which resulted in these facilities being rather empty. Overall the hotel was everything we needed but significantly lacked any atmosphere. More
