This hotel was our first stop on a 7 day biking adventure thru Menorca. We arrived by Ferry from Mallorca and were pleasantly surprised that it was only a 15 minute walk from the Ferry terminal. The hotel is situated within easy walking distance to all of the attractions in Ciutadella. The rooms were spotless, the owners/operators very friendly and helpful and being able to swim in the cove behind the hotel was outstanding. Would definitely go back again.

Stayed for 1 night in the Mar section of the hotel. Probably the friendliest and most helpful staff ever. The rooms are simple but price / quality is more than correct. Shower a bit on the small side. Breakfast provided everything necessary to start the day. Only 2** but great value for money.

A very lovely hotel situated a short walk from the town of Ciutadella. Reception Staff extremely helpful, local knowledge outstanding and friendly. housekeeping staff also friendly and the whole place was clean and fresh. Nice room with balcony looking over the inlet to the sea and one of the most comfortable beds I ever tried. Bathroom with shower, hairdryer provided and enough storage for our week. Swimming pool, although small, is adequate for exercise and a cool down. Breakfast was amazing, loads of choice and enough of everything. We were pleased to have hired a car as there is only a small beach nearby and the roads are easy to follow. There is also a bus service and the staff are happy to advise on how to get about. Our first visit to menorca and we weren’t disappointed, will definitely return and will consider this hotel again. Thank you to all the staff for a very enjoyable holiday.

Stayed for a weeks holiday. Was a bit apprehensive as it was two star, but trusted the fact that the hotel is in the top 10 hotels in Ciutadella according to TripAdvisor. Was not disappointed. Rooms are simple, but clean and comfortable. Good shower pressure, but runs out of hot water a bit quick. There is free WiFi, although a little slow. The TV only shows Spanish TV, but as this is a 2 star hotel, I have no complaint. No air con, but a ceiling fan, again, you have to remember this is a two star. There’s a small pool and access directly from the hotel to the cove on which is sits, where you can take a dip. Great location, as is very near to a bus stop serving plenty of nearby beaches on the same stretch of coast and is about ten minutes walk to the main square. Breakfast was continental, with the usual meat and cheese, and also including toast, cereal, yogurt etc. Small bar, so you can enjoy a drink on the terrace of an evening. There were three guys around reception/bar/breakfast, who were all lovely, and very friendly. In all, this hotel is simple, but it does simple very well. I would only say one slightly negative thing - the corridors where the rooms are can be access by anyone straight from the street. Perhaps the key entry which is used after midnight would be a good idea all day. Would definitely stay again.

We booked a weeks stay here in mid september. The hotel is about 45-50 minutes drive from the airport (we used OK Cars who were very reasonable). The hotel is in two parts and we were allocated room 13 in Cala Bona which has a balcony overlooking the sea inlet. There are not many rooms with balconies and we were quite lucky to get this room. The rooms are basic, with comfy beds and cleaned every day. There is no air con but we had a ceiling fan. The staff are friendly and helpful, there is a small bar and a pool area with limited sun loungers. There is an area where you can swim off the rocks and plenty of fish to look at. There is also a small beach at the end of the inlet (about a 3 minute walk) Breakfast is continental with boiled eggs, ham, cheese, bread, croissants, orange juice tea and coffee. It is a great location not far from the ring road, close to a large supermarket and about a 15-20 min walk into the old town. there is on road parking outside the hotel and we always managed to get a space. We would stay here again as Ciutadella is beautiful and this is a good location.

I stayed at Mar Blava for 8 nights, when initially I was booked in only for 2 nights, because the hotel exceeded expectations in every way: the room I stayed in was very comfortable, the hotel has a fantastic location (10 mins from the beautiful town centre, and right by a gorgeous little inlet which is for swimming and snorkelling), its amenities and servcies are great (breakfast, swimming pool, tour desk, bar), and the friendly service from the team who runs it is extraordinary. In terms of value-for-money, the hotel is unbeatable on the island. I hope to return next year. I warmly recommend the hotel to anyone travelling on a budget who expects a certain level of comfort and service. Mar Blava & Cala Bona will not disappoint.

A good accommodation with a perfect location. The room was clean and had a comfortable bed. Instead of an AC we had a fan, but it was OK, because at night it cools down a little bit. The breakfast was simple but totally enough. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We can recommend the stay here.

Unfortunately I had only one night in beautiful Menorca this time. I chose this accomondation because it was a very good price, but I was extremly suprised by the good quality. Top class service, nice room, good breakfast and perfect if you want to take a swim, either in the ocean or in the pool. I would recommend to have an apartment on a higher level than ground floor, but still this was a very good place to stay - and I most definately will return for a few more days next time.

We stayed in this hotel for a little over a week and it was just perfect for us. The staff was super friendly and helpful all the time. They took the time to answer any questions or guide us to go around town to find different places, good recommendations, beaches, restaurants etc. Not to mention the view from our room or from the terrace where you can have your breakfast, it was just awesome! Right below the hotel there is an access to the wonderful clear turquoise water to bathe and swim in the very calm ocean inlet that leads to the beach Platja Gran. I differently recommend this place that reminds me of Southbeach, Florida art Deco architecture look. Thank you for a great stay.

Back again after a couple of years and so pleased I gave it another go. Yes the rooms are basic but the extras make it worth it - great location 10 mins walk from the old town, a pool out the back & the turquoise inlet out the front so you can get into the sea from the stone steps just a few feet from the hotel terrace. There's a cute side room with a shelf with books to borrow, and they'll even lend you an umbrella for the beaches. The brothers (?) who own it are super friendly & full of tips. They even have me a free pomada (gin & lemon) when I arrived. Total gem.
