10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
Fab views over the port
"A smashing hotel, with very friendly and helpful staff. Good food with plenty of choice, delightfull outside eating area, clean public areas with a well kept garden area arround the lovely heated swimming pool. We had a very nice room over looking the port, with double balcony, which was throughly cleaned each morning. The only down side is the amount of steps both in the hotel and to get down to the harbour, but having said that, it keeps you fit after the good food you will be eating!!! Well worth a visit, sea view room a must. When next in Menorca we shall be returning here."

"the rooms could be updated but the standard of cleanliness was above avarage and they had everything you could need in a hotel room. The food in the half board option was the best I had ever had at a hotel buffet, lots to choose from and changed every night. The staff were all very helpful and friendly espscially the old guy in the bar. The location was the best, a 10 minute stroll around the top of the cliff into town of a 15-20 minute stroll along the harbour edge. I would not hesitate in booking this hotel again."

Beautiful Location ,First Class Service
"Have just returned from a week in The Port Mahon and have absolutely no complaints at all. The staff were courteous, efficient and friendly and the hotel, pool area and rooms spotless. The superb breakfasts were varied with a selection of fish, meats, cheeses, pastries, cakes, yoghurts and cereals as well as the more traditional hot dishes - also there was cava every morning. We had a room with a beautiful sea view. The quickest way to reach the many restaurants and bars around the harbour is by a flight of steps opposite the hotel but the return journey can be tricky - best to pause a few times, look at the view and get your breath. As it was early in the season the resort was very quiet and probably wouldn't suit people looking for a lively break. I didn't enjoy the walk to the town centre - along a busy and soulless dual carriageway but would recommend getting a taxi to the nearby resort of Es Castell - another pretty harbour and costs about 6 - 7 Euros in a taxi"

Port Mahon - Lovely Hotel
"Stayed at the Port Mahon for 3 nights in September 2005. A lovely hotel. Our room overlooking the back of the hotel wasn't the best view, so worth paying extra for a seaview room. The hotel is in a lovely position overlooking the harbour. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay at the Port Mahon again."

Port Mahon Hotel - Brilliant !
"Have just returned from a week in the Port Mahon Hotel in Menorca - an excellent hotel with first-class service, the finest position in Mahon overlooking the beautiful harbour, and food of the highest quality (and quantity !) Only slight problem was that the air-con had been switched to heating due to a cold spell prior to our arrival - as soon as this was mentioned to the hotel, the air-con was immediately re-instated. Would not hesitate to recommend the hotel, but families with young children may find the lack of handy beach facilities a disadvantage. However, the pool is of good quality, and to get into the town centre is only about a 10 minute stroll. Looking forward to the next visit !"

Loved Mahon! Loved the Port Mahon!
"Situated in an elevated position overlooking the harbour, this colonial-style hotel is located in one of the best areas of Mahon. This hotel has everything you desire for a relaxing holiday and is located about 10 minutes from the harbour-front. Although there are a number of steps, you can opt to take the lift from the Casino if you wish which is open to the public. The views across the harbour are spectacular especially from the outdoor terrace/bar and pool area. Bedrooms are average, most have a terrace. Wardrobe space is limited for two adults. Rooms are clean and staff are friendly and courteous. Breakfast is self-service full-buffet style and has a wide-variety of delicious hot and cold food. You can even have cava for breakfast! I felt that the air-conditioning in public areas, especially the dining room, is needed. There is live entertainment a couple of nights a week and an outdoor bar which closes at 11pm and an indoor piano bar that closes much later. This was my first visit to Menorca and if I visit again, I would definitely choose to stay in the Port Mahon."

"Having visited the Port Mahon at least 5 times we were very dissapointed last year with the standard of dinner. In previous years, as soon as the dining room opened the restaurant was full with holiday makers to sample the wide range of excellent dishes. Last year (2003) the number of occupied tables was sometimes as low as 5 or 6, the reason was simple to see, the food on offer was of 3 star or less quality. The change was commented upon by many regular visitors to the hotel and many of us explained our feelings to the new director. This did not apply to the breakfast buffet which maintained the usual high standard."

5th visit coming up
"This hotel has some great rooms AT THE FRONT, the rest not so good in terms of the view over the bay. The breakfasts are good - with SPANISH (can be slow) service of tea and coffee. All the staff are helpful and unfailingly cheerful. Go and enjoy it."

A British Prospective
"The Hotel Port Mahon is a four star hotel built in the British colonial style set in a quiet location, on the top of the cliffs looking onto the harbour of Mahon. The rooms offering a sea veiw and/or terrace benefit from receiving the first sight of the sun on Spanish soil, Menorca being the most eastern point of Spain. Gardens offer sun loungers,parasols, towels and there is a swimming pool. The bedroom we used had a terrace, double bed, sitting area,TV, bathroom, airconditioning and mini bar. Daily maid service is included with regular linen and towel replacement. The hotel restaurant serves excellent food- buffet style for breakfast and dinner, with al a carte at dinner an option. Hot and cold lunch menu is also available. The centre of Mahon is about 10 minutes walk for traditional and modern shopping, bars and informal restuarants. Directly in front of the hotel are steps that lead down to the harbour where there are many harbourside gift shops with restaurants and bars covering local and international cuisine. Local, low key entertainment is offered occasionally at the hotel. All of the public rooms are of a high standard, as are the staff - from bell boy to hotel director."
