Lovely little hotel with very nice rooms and excellent service. In the rooms, everything is thought out to the smallest detail for the convenience of guests. The hotel is decorated in very pleasant colors, it is a kind of aesthetic pleasure. Veronique gave us a very warm welcome and was always ready to help and make our stay more comfortable.The breakfast - highly recommend! It consists local products, there are traditional pastries and very good coffee, perhaps the most delicious in Mahon. If we are planning a holiday in Menorca again, we will definitely stay here.

This is why I love boutique hotels.With only six rooms, Jessie made us (and the other guests) feel very welcome and special.The Swiss owner has renovated this building in the old town to a very high standard. It oozes style.Breakfast was an amazing array of locally produced products. The coffee was fantastic. The only tiny thing I didn’t like was smokers using the small court yard at night. Otherwise absolutely perfect.

We had the most wonderful stay at the Consul Mao. The owners, Veronique and Didier were incredible hosts and made us feel at home as soon as we stepped into this magical menorquín townhouse. A model of a refurbishment, done with taste and an impeccable sense of detail. Our room (#5) was absolutely charming, of a really good size and with all the amenities we needed for a short stay. Located on a quiet street, 2min from the centre of Mahon, it was also ideally located close to a large parking space for our rental car. I would return in a flash! And will be recommending it to all my friends too!
