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.

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
Just returned from a week at the Agamenon Hotel. We had a fantastic time, lovely clean hotel, great food and the staff exemplary from the moment you arrive until you leave. Nothing was too much trouble, a fantastic team who are a credit to the hotel. It was my Birthday on our last night and I was given a Birthday cake and all the staff and guests sang Happy Birthday which was lovely. Beds a bit hard for me but perfect for hubby.More

This hotel is in a quiet position which for us was excellent. There are lots of small things which made our stay absolutely perfect - there is no piped music, the food is fantastic, the staff are extremely helpful, there is no kids club and the nearest beach is some miles away. It's a short walk to the local harbours and only slightly further into Mahon. You can catch a bus into Mahon which runs every 30 minutes and costs 1.65 Euros. The rooms are immaculate and cleaned every day to exacting standards. There is a nice swimming pool surrounded by sun beds but unlike many other places we have stayed, there is no need to reserve them and no matter what time we arrived at the pool we had a choice. All the rooms have a view of the sea - the question is what sort of a sea view! Either overlooking the pool where you can see views of Mahon and boats in the harbour and you will get sun on your balcony until it sets. Alternatively on the other side of the hotel you get views out to sea and morning sun - it depends what you would prefer! We opted for a high floor overlooking the harbour and it was perfect. There is a little entertainment in the hotel a couple of nights per week - one night a small band played really good music to dance to - and the local Spanish dance club came along too! We dance in the UK and had a great time. All in all, my only concern about writing a review is that more people will get to know about this oasis of tranquillity which for us represents a perfect holiday. Thank you very much Agamenon Hotel, we are sad to return home but looking forward to coming back soon. Finally, anyone like us arriving independently, there is no need to book transfers - a private taxi cost us 16 euros each way. If anyone has any questions - I will be pleased to try and help so just send a message.More
First class all the way. The staff couldn't do enough to help in every capacity. It was our silver wedding and they left us a bottle if cava in our room. The breakfast was wonderful and the choice extremely varied for everyone. Thank you so much. More
