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. This hotel is part of the Simply Travel collection until April 2017. It will then join our Small & Friendly range – home to holidays with an authentic and intimate feel.
These relaxing single rooms with their gentle tones and soft furnishings, are complimented by views of the ocean. They come with a balcony or a terrace. Plus you'll also find air-conditioning, a minibar and a flatscreen TV included.

We stayed at The Agamenon last year and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, this time was no different.
The hotel itself is in a residential area with no entertainment for kids anywhere nearby, so do your homework if you're talking children as they may be very bored, no beach, no disco, no water park, no pool tables etc.
The Agamenon is spotlessly clean throughout.The staff really seem to take pride in their work and are always smiling.
Cili, Richard, Angeles, Jorge and Marta especially are a real credit to the Hotel and the Set Group in general.
The range of food in the buffet style restaurant is perfectly adequate for most tastes and they cater for special dietary requirements.
Bar prices are relatively expensive (compared to local bars) but not ridiculous and handy if you don't want to go out.
A couple of gripes, the lift is small and slow and could really do with an upgrade. The air conditioning is a bit of a joke (but not a very funny one) as it apparently runs off one machine which is capable of dispensing EITHER hot or cold air, as we discovered on the baking hot day that we arrived.
The room was so hot on arrival that we had to go out on to the balcony for a couple of hours in the morning shade, shutting the doors behind us to let the air conditioning do it's stuff.
Imagine my surprise when I re-entered the room only to instantly have my nasal hair and mucus membranes melted as the thing had been churning out hot air into a closed room for two hours even though the coldest setting was selected.
Anyway, it was a pretty unpleasant first day and night but they turned it to cold air the following morning and all was well.
Obviously it would be great to have a truly efficient aircon system installed.
Wifi is free and of reasonable quality / signal.
There's a small minibar type fridge in every room to keep drinks etc cold (or to put your head into when the aircon is on "hot".
Beds during our stays were very hard and pillows are a very odd shape ,narrower and longer than we're used to, I expect these are the norm in Spain so no complaints.
Overall a lovely hotel with wonderful staff that really make a difference.More
Our Second Home
My thirteenth visit over the last forty years to this beautiful Spanish Island Menorca. Most of which I have stayed at the Set hotel Agamenon in Es Castell. As with most hotels there are pluses and minuses but the Agamenon has few of the minuses.
The hotel rooms over look the sea entry to the beautiful port Mahon,every room has a balcony of which half face the pool with sun in the evening and the other half the car park with the sun in the morning. The hotel is also directly opposite the famous hospital island good views can be seen from most rooms on either side. The rooms are large with generous wardrobes a TV fridge a single chair for the large full length mirror.
The beds are firm, the large en suite is fully fitted but the shower is over the bath. The roomy balcony has a table and two chairs. The restaurant is excellent with large plate windows showing beautiful views each way. The whole hotel as with all Set Hotels is well run clean and has well trained staff and the food is quite acceptable. The Agamenon is located in an excellent position has a bus stop within a short walk and most of all a free car park for those like us that hire a car. I will definitely visit this hotel again that's if I can get in. Last year it was fully booked and I believe this year is the same so book early.More
A little piece of heaven
We have just returned from a very relaxing week here. Food,staff,views all excellent. We had a corner room that had dual aspect views of the estuary into Mahon. Superb. The lounge and dining room had floor to ceiling views of the estuary also. We walked into Mahon a couple of times although there is a regular bus service. It took us about 35 mins. This is a very quiet hotel so if you are looking for somewhere with a lot of entertainment this is not for you. We wanted a relaxing holiday and got it. Would recommend it and would go back again.More
Peaceful surrounding with wonderful views and plenty of history
I spent three weeks here in April. Weather was very good,not too hot.The centre of Es Castell is approximately 650meters from the Hotel. Local bus stop is500meters,where you go to Mahon Bus Station (15minutes). You can pick-up all the buses you want from there,to explore the rest of the Island. Fares are cheap. Mahon has plenty of places to interest you,plus plenty of shops. The Hotel is family run,and extremely clean. Views from the lounge and dining room,look over the entrance to the Harbour,where all the cruise ship's come in. Food is very pleasant,and plenty of choice. There is no chief's to cook anything directly for you. It's all put on` hot plates`for you to help yourself. Plates are always hot,so use tissues. Staff are extremely helpful. There is only two nights of entertainment, which was a shame,because there was no other bars or restaurants near by to walk to in the evening. Calas Fonts was the nearest,approx 20minutes walk. But a beautiful place,once you got there. The bar is in the lobby together with the snack bar.Wi-Fi internet was free. Rooms were comfortable, tv,hairdryer,fridge safe, also with balconies. Yes I would go back again,because its easy to get around the Island,once you got to Mahon. Many people at the Hotel,did a lot of walking. Menorca is great for that. Airport is approximately 20minutes,but I never heard the planes. Menorca, as an island ,has plenty to offer, with lots of history. Hotel well situated for this.More

hotel situated in very quiet location & was mostly "Saga" guests who @ times thought it was only for them,,but hotel had good clean rooms with great views of the bay (401) great view, quite hilly in area & very steep steps in Mahon down to the quay area, not really suitable for elderly people as most in MAY time seemed to be ,,no doubt this will be a much busier island from June onwardsMore
