Fantastic views, great accommodation
Just back from a lovely 7 night break at this fabulous location. Apartment is well equipped and very comfy with outstanding views of the port of Mahon and the lovely sunrises. Walking distance to Mahon and very close to Es Castell.
The apartment was very nice & had everything that you'd need it was situated in a fantastic location very quiet which we prefer & yet being on the edge of the estuary into Mahon there was plenty going on with all types of crafts from small boats to huge cruise liners. There is a small supermarket just around the corner which was handy or a bigger supermarket just 5mins walk. There are plenty of bars & restaurants in the area all within walking distance & the main area Cala Font Harbour used to take us about 15mins to walk there. My wife & I are in our late sixties & this was our fifth visit to Es Castell we just love the place.
Thank the trust in the apartment.
Amazing views and spotlessly clean
Just back from a fabulously relaxing holiday in Menorca. This aprartment is more spacious than the photos do it justice and spotlessly clean. The balcony is a wonderful place to sit any time of the day but the morning when the sun is on it is a perfect place for a relaxing breakfast.
We are a family of four with 2 teenagers and found this apartment ideal for us. The location is great for the Cala fonts area where we ate out for dinner on many occasions. It is a beautiful place to spend an evening with some lovely restaurants also.
The pool was a great place to relax and enjoy with lots of sun beds and was never very busy.
The owners were fantastic and got back to every email promptly.
No real downsides for us as we had a great time but with no aircon in the apartments having the door open does get a bit noisy. The fans are adiquate though and it was very hot when we were there, just the noise from the road at times did get a bit annoying especially with the doors open.
Parking wasn't a problem for us as there is a car park 10 mins walk away but on occasion we were able to park outside.
Overall a lovely location and a lovely apartment.
Thanks so much
Great Loacation, Exceptional View
The condo is part of a beautiful complex, on the water in the area of Es Castell. The view of the pool and the ocean are amazing. The condo was impeccably clean. Seeing the incredible sailing yachts and boats go buy was just great. Parking is an issue in the area and this particular unit does not come with a parking space in the garage, while many other units do. The streets are jam packed and you spend a lot of time circling and looking for parking. June was exceptionally hot this year and though there is a wonderful breeze that goes through the condo, it was very hot and no air conditioning resulted in a sleep that was compromised. Windows stay open so the noise from the streets really wake you up throughout the night and early mornings. A great unit for 2-3 people max. It is small for 4 people. Only one love seat to sit on in the unit, that, or kitchen chairs. You spend most of your time outside so the seating isn't too much of an issue, except once you finish your day and want to veg for an hour or two before either heading back out or to bed. Kitchen facilities support the very bare minimum. Again, if you plan on eating out all of the time, it is perfect as you can keep some essentials cold. If you want to shop at the grocery store and cook, it is a bit more complicated. In summary a very nice condo in a really great area, just be aware that it is small for 4 people, no air conditioning, and a kitchen that is not all that functional. If you don't need air con, and won't be cooking, I would definitely recommend it. Juan was very quick to respond and allowed us to arrive early. Over all a great experience.
An excellent location
We were given a first class welcome and introduction, even though our flight was 1.5 hours late and we did not arrive until late evening. The first floor apartment (easy stairs and also a lift) was satisfactorily appointed and was tidy, clean and afforded excellent views, from from the living area and balcony, across Mahon harbour to Cala Llonga, one of the most exclusive residential areas on the island. The good-sized balcony overlooked the water and was north-facing, which shaded it from the sun and so it and the whole apartment was kept refreshingly cool. If you want to sit in the sun, go down by the pool. There were always boats to look out onto going back and forth - so plenty to look out on too. We got out onto the water ourselves on a harbour cruise with English commentary, which gave an outline of the history of all the defensive fortifications built by the British and Spanish in centuries past. Free parking was always available but not always on the street outside (car park a couple of streets away). We found north-east Menorca the prettiest area on the island so Es Castell was a good location for making short trips out. There are also excellent restaurants in the area especially in Cales Fontes harbour area. Ask the owner for his recommendations. We went to three of them and were certainly not disappointed. We certainly enjoyed this laid-back holiday just reading, wandering around and people-watching while sitting at bars and cooling down with the odd drink. Walking along Mahon harbour is something quite out of this world with all of the super-yachts moored up. A thoroughly recommended holiday! A further plus was the easy communication with the owner through the HomeAway website.
Cales Fons, a port with all the charm of the Mediterranean, was once fishing port nearby, with restaurants, shops, etc.
