the terace and the pool area. though the pool could have been cleaner with a little more detail and comfort to the rooms the hotel could be nearer excellent than good
location and value absence of tea/coffee making facillities
The staff was very friendly, the hotel and thw view was as it was on the pictures. no surprises.In overall, it was quite good and relaxing
Very friendly and great problem-fixing, problem-solving staff. Good location. Nice views from the room Most rooms don't have king-size bed, they normally are two double beds next to each other. Food from the buffet medium-quality
the environment was very pleasant and unobtrusive no
Location was ideal to suit our purpose. Although communicating was difficult, staff were very helpful and obliging. no storage space in bedrooms e.g. drawers, More variety in breakfast would be good. Cushions on sun beds.
The staff was very nice and accomodating. It was only a short walk from a small beach and had a few nice restaurants and bars in the neighborhood.
The location was superb and the staff were friendly and warm. no
I loved Hotel Sa Barrera. The staff were so friendly - especially the short lady with the white hair. It struck me that a lot of attention was paid to detail to make the hotel and room really nicely presented and comfortable. The pool was clean and well-maintained. The air conditioning in the room worked really well. I recommend highly this hotel for a relaxing break in Menorca.
friendly staff. slowish service.expensive relative to comparable hotels. see above
The staff were exceptional , the hotel was spottlesley clean good location for resturants and bars and beach. like a peacefull oasis. Menus were only in Spanish , staff were unable to translate succsesfully . No tea making facilites in room also no drawers to put clothes in .
The decoration and overall presentation was exceptional and the staff were friendly and helpful. There was not quite enough storage space, the room would benefit from extra drawer storage. I assume the limited food choices were due to my stay being out of season.
Great location, tidy, appeared newly renovated, nice atmosphere and pool, convenient to beach and sights
The location was handy for the beach and the views of the sea from our balcony superb. However others were regularly put in a miserable room until, after complaining, they were moved. This again happened on a regular basis. The hotel was over booked and we were sent to another hotel for one night. This took time out of our first day and again the next day , unpacking and packing, waiting for taxis and checking out of one at 12noon and into the other at 4pm. We asked to see the manager (director) but were told it by the hotel staff that it often happened. We were offered alternative accommodation so he did not see the need to speak to us. This meant we lost practically a whole day of our holiday.
Easy internet booking process My details were not with the hotel when I arrived and they had never heard of Active before. It was not clear to them that Active came through 'Booking' rather than direct. I was held up at Reception for over half an hour. Very poor and not a good start to the break.
Good reception ( multilingual , helpfull ) , good catering Bathroom should be better , problems with reservation - first night in other hotel ( IBB also )
the location and the helpful staff
The friendliness of the staff!! The bed had 2 matrasses with the hole/space between them. The toilet could be a little more clean, but it was ok! No big problems.
Food was amazing, staff was also very friendly and helpful, Son Bou beach is one of the most beautiful clean beach we ever seen Nothing, please note that it is a family hotel: e.g. lots of kids, but if you go to the beach, this is not a problem.
The location, the beautiful envoirment, the food, the room's view.Great Internet free with wireless acess
The staff and the food. The location.
We enjoyed our stay very much. The hotel offered excellent facilities and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The hotel was marvellous but was at the top of a very steep hill. Not good for people with walking difficulties.
Excellent hotel which we really enjoyed for what was our third stay. Very busy during school holidays but still, excellent. Food is lovely, staff very friendly, good kids club and very clean. Recommended for families..
We have stayed at The Hamilton in previous years, and their food and service has remained at a high level.
Food was very good & the staff are very freindly and helpful decor in the rooms where a bit tired looking
The hotel is in a great location in the Es Castel area. It is just a 5 minutes bus ride from the center of Mahon. The hotel was clean and we had a wonderful ocean and bay view after paying a small supplement. The bathroom size was adequate and the shower had good water pressure. The beds were comfortable. The breakfast had a wide variety of European foods. The hotel does not have ice machines.The air conditioning did not work very well -- it did not really cool the room down that much.The rooms, bathrooms, and hallways needed upgrading. We found some big beetle-type bugs running around in our room even though we were on the fourth floor. Finding parking near the hotel for a rental car was a challenge.
The staff were very pleasant and helpfull. I thought the food was very poor.The beds were very uncomfortable in the roon i stayed in.
Buffet, although little vegetables The first room they gave us was like a room in a low star hostel. We claim for another room and we had to stay in the same room 2 nights (we were only 5...). Moreover, the bathroom was not cleaned during our stay in the first room (towels in the same bad position we had left them, no shower gel for the second day). After that, they change us to a better quality room, in a fourth floor, sea sightseeing, bigger and better equiped.
Close to lovely Es Castell. Great location and easy access to airport. Fantastic views across the port of Mahon.Enjoyed pool. Breakfast enjoyable Decor of hotel a little tired and threadbare. Not quite what I expected from Barcelo chain.
The location for us was very good, we like to walk to restaurants in the evening and the harbour was lovely. We did not like the fact that we had to move two days before the end of our holiday. The Hotel Capri, in Mahon was very nice but we would have prefered to be in a hotel situated more like the Hamilton
the staff - the food - the room - the hotel itself - 100% first class. i was in mahon to attend my brother in laws funeral staying at the barcalo made the unhappy event bearable. none
Very pleasant stay but the room was very small and the shower and other facilities were a little tired.
It was handy for completing business in Mahon. We stayed on half board and the food was not up to the standard my friend had previously experienced
Staff were very helpful indeed and more than willing to provide local information. The spa facilities were also lovely, if a little small. The breakfast was a particular highlight with a huge range of food and quality each day.
Good location. Great breakfast The website said that there was a spa and a pool, but both were closed due to renovations during my stay.
pleasant staff It was too far to walk to the port in comfort and uphill to walk back-not good if you have back problems either as beds very hard. Noisy too, as road works in progress in the street below. If without car which we were no info about bus times etc
Mostly Everything. Hot food at breakfast not very hot. No kettle in room for making tea or coffee
Breakfast fabulous, hotel very clean and central location There wern't any
Stayed in apartment battached to hotel. Clean, but a little bare. 15 mins walk from harbour
Staying at Capri was very nice and we found the hotel staff to be very friendly and very helpful. We found the hotel and apartments very clean and well looked after. Overall a very pleasant stay and would return there without a doubt. Thank You.
Location, near bus stop. Balcony
Breakfast buffet was outstanding. Very nice simple pool and spa on the roof. The Telegraph bar is most pleasant.
I enjoyed the use of the spa facilities. The breakfast choice was excellent. We only stayed 1 night so did not make use of the restaurant. The only small thing was that the room smelt smokey when we first arrived, however I mentioned this and a maid came to spray it and this helped in freshening up the room.
Perfect atmosphere for relax.
It was easy to find, cheap to stay, and had very thing I needed. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included but wasn't good. Spent extra money to have a dinner at one of the nearby sister-hotels, and went through the pains of making a reservation and getting dressed up for it, but it was only a buffet with decent food. Located close to a few beaches, but the better ones were far away
There was nothing open only 6 people in the whole 120 room hotel no train as advertised no entertainment as advertised no poolside bar open the area is very very quite none of the 4 shops open ghost town
The staff friendliness above all and the extra activities (sports centre with mountain biking, diving, tennis, trekking, etc...) Accessibility (it's close to the airport, but is almost only accessible by car - poor bus service)
I like the view to the harbour and water You had to walk a lot of stairs to reach the hotel
veiws of harbour beds and small room
excellent breakfast. amazing views. lovely staff. a little bit of walking into town which some people could stuggle with.
The accommodations were good and the staff friendly and helpful
The location, the friendly staff,and the proffessional running of the hotel, especially the blond lady that was at breakfast The bedroom was a little cold, we where not able to work the heating
Good standard, value for money I found the hotel hard to find and carparking a problem
Distance from Mahon Centre and tired decor in room
The tall male member of staff was very pleasant and helpful. The air conditioning in the room I was given did not work at all, and after a change of room the following day the main light did not work. I felt that both faults were obvious, which led me to form the impression that the hotel is not well-maintained. The female staff member to whom I complained about the faulty facilities made me feel very awkward - as a paying guest of the hotel I did not appreciate her attitude at all.
Very good! staf is very friendly!!! Trully recommend!
Very friendly and helpful staff, air-conditioning a boon, shady garden for sitting in heat of the day, wonderful position overlooking the harbour and watching the fire-works, gargantuan breakfast, try the pomada,easy walking distance to bus-station, old town and local squares where you can stroll in the evening with the townsfolk.
we have stayed at this hotel before (13 years ago) and have used the barcelo chain since, this hotel offers a wide range of facilities to cater for every age. an ideal family hotel very popular with other europeans not just british holiday makers.we will be returning.
The Staff were very helpfull and friendly. They were quick to move me after I complained about the location of my room. The rooms were very clean and modern. The room locations were badly planned as a lot of the rooms looked straight into another room with no view what so ever. I felt that I could not go out onto my balcony or leave the curtains open. I requested another room that was a lot quieter and looked out onto a field. The food was nice but not very hot.
Convenient location, clean rooms, very friendly and helpful staff, good buffet breakfasts and dinners! Checking in and out took quite a while
I enjoyed our stay at the Hotel because it was relaxing, without too much disturbance from young people, particularly around the pool area. For a supposedly (applied for) 4 star hotel, the buffet food on every day of our 6 night stay was appalling.
The rooms were comfortable, clean and modern. The staff were friendly and helpfull. The spa was a little too dear. There was a wide choice of good quality food. The pool area was stylish, immaculate and spacious. The glass wall between the bathroom and bedroom could be a little "awkward" for friends when using the shower.
Location, at three minutes walking to Punta Prima beach, which is a great beach. Inside hotel area, everything is very spacefully, with a lot of green areas, trees, 4 swimming-pools, and things for all family.
It's a modern hotel, with all of the commodities that we can expect from a 4* hotel. The rooms are pleasant and clean.
We travelled with another couple and were put into ajoining rooms which was very convenient and made out stay more pleasurable
The staff were friendly. The hotel has a magnificent view. The food was good. The pool was good. The publice areas are extensive and nice.
I think the location over looking the bay is probably its best asset together with a great swimming pool. The choice of food at the breakfast is excellent lots of fruits and juices and cooked dishes, as well as on demand omelette. The dinner buffet is excellent value for money. Also the staff are very nice especially Ester at the reception and the housekeeper respects your timing.The harbour is walking distance and best to see at night with all its lights and restaurants ie @Peter's Dinkums The acoustic from the rooms is the only little thing and also only BBC world in english and no french channels on the tv.
excellent helpful staff breakfast excellent location breath taking he bathroom in need of updating
Its very old fashioned furniture wise.. Could really do with refurbishing..
The view from the room fronting the port in the morning! The room service did not have all the menu items available, I had to change my order many times in order to finally get something I like.
The facilities were good and the position of the hotel was excellent We were not impressed by the self service restaurant although the food was reasonable if you were late to dinner it had been hanging around for a while. We would recommend bed and breakfast, rather than half or full board.
We have stayed at the hotel on many occasions and you can always be assured of a warm reception. None. the buffet restaurant is also very good
Functional hotel in somewhat old fashioned style, located 10 minutes from the old city, nice views from some rooms over the harbour
We were given a free upgrade to a suite, which was to an excellent standard. The staff were friendly, professional and very helpful No
We had a lovely room with a great view over the port. Only criticism, was the pool furniture was old and uncomfortable
Nothing I did not like the very loud noise of the band. It spoils the beautiful look over the harbour at night. You could not talk with each other because of the music and you have to speak with a very loud voice to the waitress to place your order. the coffee machine was broken down and the machine who did work gave coffee drip by drip.
Courtesy of all staff. Magnificent Mahon harbour view room. Buffet dinner at 15Euros good value No hot drink making facilities in room!!
Good location, good hotel, good room, good price! Not being able to get a meal 5 mins after the kitchen had closed.
The quietness and non-commercial aspect of of the location I do not believe that the Buffet Main Meat,Fish,Veg selection was of 4* quality; I am basing this judgement on constant use of 4* hotels when away from home both in UK and Abroad
Beautiful location, excellent facilities with very pleasant, relaxing environment within the hotel. Very good spacious room overlooking sea and air conditioning was very welcome. A very pleasant holiday.
A well appointed 1970`s hotel,a par of the S`Algar developement,built around mature tropical gardens.Room clean with effective aircon,buffet breakfast excellent choice and well prepared lasting pleasingly late(10.30).Rooms cleaned thoroughly daily.Pool immaculate & large. Service at pool bar dreadful.Buffet dinner not really worth eating.NB:S`Algar is 5kms from the nearest town San Lluis,and has 1 small supermarket and 2 restaurants,no sandy beach.I hired a car for 3 days out of 6 there.
Lovely setting peaceful quiet resort, I was on holiday on my own and felt safe and relaxed at all time. Hotel perfect for older people not really for families. Every thing about the S'Algar is good perhaps the chef needs to stop putting sauce on everything and stick to simple cooking.
Good Value For Money, friendly and helpful staff and excellent position for the beach
Only the location. The room was dirty, the service was poor, the breakfast was good but dishes and glasses were dirty....at the end I don't suggest this hotel! In a general opinion the hotel isn't beautiful.
We love it! Perfect for families with children. Literally by the sea with a lovely sandy beach. Lovely food. Just a complain about juices: undrinkable!!!!
Great selection of food for breakfast. Staff friendly and helpful Pool too cold - Not heated
Location, Weather and relaxation I found the Elavator service appaling. Every guest awaiting the elavator was complaining about the delay. There was no way all lifts were being operated simultaniously
i thought the food was excellent great range and the cleaness of the hotel was outstanding. some of the staff could be more helpful.
calm and peaceful hotel, very close to the beach although car is needed to move in the area. Good breakfast buffet
We liked the tranquility. we enjoyed the pool and the garden around it. The room is spacious and quite good. Some of the furniture was a little bit dated.
Large rooms, buffet was OK. Reasonable option if you have a car and don't mind driving 30 minutes to get anywhere and you are looking for a (very) quiet place. Far from beach, far from any restaurants or shops. Spa and gym are not very good: sauna switched off, ancient equipment... Most tourists are parents with kids, there is absolutely nothing to do near the hotel.
Room was clean and comfortable, and lovely pool Breakfast was ok, not enough entertainment and staff were not helpful as receptionist came from Majorca!
Spacious apartment,quiet location.Pool and garden areas attractive and well tended. Large and varied breakfast buffet.Lots of info available on local attractions,Plentiful car parking. No
lovely gardens and pool area, great food everything was great. No
Nice swimming pools, breakfast ok. Beds are a bit hard. Rooms can be noisy when you're on the ground level and your neighbours upstairs are wearing tacones lejanos.
