Hotel Agamenon  

Right by the water’s edge on the south side of Mahon harbour, the Hotel Agamenon offers sweeping sea views.

The tranquil atmosphere at the Hotel Agamenon is largely down to its location on the outskirts of the charming town of Es Castell.

Throughout the hotel balustrade-laced terraces and picture windows make the most of the sea views. The same applies to the bedrooms, all of which open out on to a balcony with a panorama.

Menorca and the Agamenon

We returned to Es Castell after 17 years. The last time as an able bodied very active person. I returned after 16 years in an electric wheelchair following a broken neck. The staff, location and food where fantastic. Movement around the hotel was no problem for me, even around the pool. The gardens down the hillside were obviously inaccessible, but that was to be expected. The room was large and easy to get around in the wheelchair. Then I went in the bathroom and to my horror found a bath with shower over and, the toilet was in a tapering part of the bathroom which was impossible to manoeuvre around and, I have never seen a lower toilet. We called reception who came but said all the 'disabled' rooms were the same with the bath and profusely apologised. We, and On the Beach, made it plain to the hotel I was in an Eleectric Wheelchair user. As we pondered what to do next we went and had a coffee in the lounge, whose large windows gave fantastic views from the estuary to Mahon. This made the situation even worse. Then I realised I needed toilet and manoeuvred to find a toilet when, directed by the bar staff I entered the toilette so opposite the ba and, into a disabled toilet, I was amazed, a better equipped Disabled Toilet could not be found anywhere. At first it seemed very ironic but, we decided to 'try and manage'. We did manage,with 1 or 2 hairy, scary, moments but it was only for 8 nights. ALL this I made clear to the staff before we left, who were again very apologetic saying it was hoped to have these 3 rooms adapted correctly for wheelchair users For the able bodied, I can not recommend a better hotel on the island. After a week back home we are considering taking a chance and booking again for next May but,,, I don't know. 99 out of 100 More

Ideal Location in Minorca

A very comfortable stay in this perfectly placed hotel away from the "madding crowds" and just a short trip from Mahon airport. The views of the bay are superb. The town is very Spanish and there are two harbours within walking distance. Calas Fonts being the larger and more attractive with various restaurants and small shops is approximately 15/20 minutes undulating stroll from the hotel. Well worth the effort. The hotel is not large and has unobtrusive evening entertainment on 2 or 3 nights a week. The food, served buffet style, is extremely acceptable with a very wide choice to suit all tastes. Cleanliness is excellent and the staff all extremely cheerful, helpful, hardworking and friendly. I must mention especially the waitress, Marta and Jorge the barman. The local bus stop is a short walk away with an excellent service to Mahon for 1Euro 65 cents. From there you can catch a bus to anywhere on the Island or just enjoy the town or a boat trip from the harbour. I would recommend this hotel and Minorca.More

Another excellent stay

Just returned from the Agamenon and once again another excellent stay. This hotel must have the friendliest, happiest staff, they are always smiling. The views from the hotel are unbeatable, whether it be from the pool, lounge, dining room or the bedrooms, you never tire from it. The food and cleanliness are very good. The pool area is lovely and there were no problems at all getting a sunbed. Es Castell is a small working town full of local bars and restaurants, all of which are very welcoming. We mainly used Bar La Zurra and Camacho's which is frequented by lots of locals. The tapas in both was excellent. The bus service is very good and is always very punctual. You can walk into Mahon from the Agamenon, it's a walk which takes about 20-30 minutes. We will definitely return, so thank you once again to all the staff for a very welcome holiday.More

Perfect choice for wife who suffers from coeliac

We have just returned from our 11 day stay at the hotel Agamenon in Es Castell Although we have been to Menorca many times in the past this was our first stay on the Port side of the island and we chose the Agamenon for it’s position that suited us and as also as we have previously stayed in another hotel that belonged to the SetHotel group ie the ‘Santa Thomas’. Our initial impression was that the Hotel was spotlessly clean, light and airy with a good sense of modern décor and a light airy space. The hotel was blessed with wonderful wall to wall cliff top panoramic sea views from the main lounge. All bedrooms have an excellent sea view with totally private balconies and came with a decent sized safety deposit box, with a proper key! Albeit is as usual there is an extra charge for this. But at least you can actually store a reasonable volume of goods including a DLSR camera etc in. Apart from a very slightly stiff tap action on the wash basin we could not fault the room, equally my 23 year old son, who had travelled with us had a full sized double room to himself and again we were very satisfied with what had been provided. None of us used the telly or fridge so cannot comment on these. Poolside and other hotel facilities were no different to what we all expect today and did not disappoint. In addition there was also a tiered terrace offering sunbeds away from the poo with stunning views over Mahon and the estuary and it was very pleasant to while away a few hours whilst watching the varied boat/ferry/cruiser and navel activity at the same time. The evening entertainment was quite low key, approx 3 nights per week, not all was to my taste but it was pleasant none the less. Re the location. Es Castell itself would probably be best described a largely residential, with a central ex military presence square and museum. With the bars/hotels/bays being situated toards th estuary (where else!). However in terms of getting around from the hotel. In getting to wher we wanted to go these are oour approx. times based on a steady walk. The bus stop being five mins away from the hotel - good flat level walking to it. Main shopping street is again 5 minutes away. (10-12 + shops etc.) Local bars seem to be almost in every side street! Cal corbs bay is 5 minutes away a few restaurants/bars etc) Cal fonts bay is 10 minutes away (lots of restaurants/bars etc) Mahon is approx. 20 minutes steady walk with a gradual down hill gradient toards the end of the walk. No bad roads to cross etc. We many other guests doing this walk including some on mobility scooters so no real challenge. Just have to bear in mind the down hill becomes uphill on the way back in midday sun etc. But it is very do-able. There is a reasonable ‘Saga” presence at this hotel. However this we feel did not cause us any issues as there rep conducted everything in a low key style and any special evening group events they had planned were conducted from within the conference room which is adjacent to the lounge. Overall one would have to say that this probably added to the feel of the hotel and certainly did not draw any complaints from us (we are early fifties and our son is 23, who stated he would be happy to return to this hotel. I have left food until last ….. My wife is a coeliac sufferer, thus food choice is very important to us as she cannot have any food containing gluten or have a risk of cross contamination. Thus we emailed the Hotel before booking . We received no less than 3 separate emails back to assure us that this would not be a problem. Upon arrival, Cili on receptionist was most professional and courteous and was already alerted to my wife’s condition. She confirmed that all key staff in the restaurant and poolside bar etc were fully updated and prepared. All we had to do was just introduce ourselves initially so that they could put a face to the condition requirement. The restaurant was underneath the lounge and thus benefited from the same panoramic sea views and you sat where ever you liked. It was well lit but they had a slight hiccup with the air conditioning which was a little enthusiastic on some occasions, which required a couple a test moves on the first evening to find a table that was not directly under a blowing vent. Also the background music appeared to suffer from a little static hissing noise problem, but neither really posed a problem to us and were probably a minor blip. The restaurant manager without exception every morning and night took my wife around the food options and instructed her as to every food options that she could/could not have and also gave her the special prepared bread rolls . The chef also came out on several evenings add support or discuss some alternative options. Leaving the fully stocked salad bar/cheeses etc to one side, there were plenty of food options and every night out of 6-7 main course options my wife could have at least 4 + options and if required they would cook separate gluten free chips or adapt other items just for her. This choice equally applied to the desserts, except that the waitresses would also bring ‘special dessert’ treat options that they kept to one side. A very nice touch indeed. Breakfast saw the production of gluten free cornflakes/ rice crispies, 3 or 4 bread and cake options all bought to our table. This was in addition to what main food options available. Pool side bar food options were treaded with the same high standard and attention to special needs. On our second week another guest arrived that also had was a Coeliac . He was treated exactly the same. so, if you have some kind of dietary requirement, then this hotel should be on your list for consideration. Without exception, all the staff at this hotel were professional, polite, engaging and very knowledgeable about the facilities on offer both within the hotel and the locality outside. We required a good hotel. That was close enough to Mahon and other amenities such as bars/local shops and bays. That was clean, friendly and provided a dietary choice, quiet(ish) but had some life! The Hotel Agamenon ticked all our boxes. Would we go back again! certainlyMore
