The boutique hotel of Casa Ládico is ideally set in the capital of Menorca, right in Mahon’s historic center. The house itself dates back to the mid-19th century, having been built by the Ládico family who arrived on this Spanish isle back in 1753. Now listed, the attractive building is comprised of mares stone, and sits just a five-minute walk from Mahon Harbour.
Head inside to find equally attractive interiors, decked out with contemporary furniture, modern art and a pleasingly neutral colour palette that merges the modern with the timeless. There’s both a cafe and a bistro on site, plus a petite spa suite, just waiting for you to indulge yourself. Rooms are pleasingly a la mode, with up-to-date amenities that include L’Occitane bathroom amenities, a pillow menu and high speed Wi-Fi.
How to Get There
Spreading the word about this boutique hotel state side! Service oriented staff, unique comfortable rooms, nearby parking, and great attention to detail. The staff loaned me their local guide book in fact and went above and beyond the call of duty to find an excursion for me. (I visited in September, and there were fewer excursion opportunities available.) The feel of the hotel is leisurely and a perfect balance between a bed and breakfast and hotel ambiance. The staff will accord you as much, or as little, attention as you would like. Very engaging and friendly throughout my stay. Staff adept at understanding their guests' needs and personalities and accommodating them accordingly. I look forward to my stay there again later this month!
The title says it all. Without doubt the staff here are some of the warmest, nicest, people I've ever encountered in a hotel, apart from the marvellous manager at Bishop's House in Prague. Professional, helpful and friendly without being pushy, well informed, they're a credit to this absolutely charming establishment. We booked a Grande Luxe room but were upgraded to the Suite because of proposed maintenance to our bathroom. It was room 8, with a terrace, all very smart but the design in the bathroom area could have been better. L'Occitane toiletries, very nice. Breakfast omelettes were good, and most welcome was a bottle of water in the room every day. Absolutely no need for tea and coffee in the room, they'll make you something delicious downstairs. This is a lovely place for grown-ups!
As I live in ferry distance of Menorca I took the ferry and my car .
The season is shorter in Menorca but the weather lovely .
This hotel is based in the old high town of Mahon .
A nearby pay parking is 200 yards from hotel and arranged by the hotel .
The establishment has only 14 rooms decorated in sympathetic style for the 17th c house with green shutters .
Each room is different and the hotel is described as a “ boutique hotel”
It seems to be run entirely by talented female staff who speak many languages and nothing is too much trouble . They are knowledgeable on various events and services , tourist visits on the island .
The room was very spacious with very good beds , pillow menu , safe , AC . Rain shower , toiletries slippers and dressing gowns ( useful for visiting the small basement spa)
The choice at breakfast was large and they are able with previous advice to serve special diets .
Break was served in the small garden under a terrace roof and in sight of a plunge pool and sun loungers.
There is also a dinner service which we enjoyed on our last evening .
Local dishes and produce imaginatively presented .
Restaurants a aplenty in the lower quayside of the port .
Walking is not far but on a gradient .
The hotel interior houses many modern sculptures .
We used this as a base rather than stay at a beach side hotel , not requiring that sort of stay .
The nearby Isla del Rey ( the island based old British naval hospital is reached by water taxi ) where restoration is taking place by volunteers .
As the island is small it was delightful to explore small fishing ports and The old capital Cuidadella .
The range of seafood and shell fish is very good however not cheap , .
The choice of restaurants is ample
We've just spent 5 nights here and it's a really nice hotel. The rooms are good and kept wonderfully clean. The staff are all very friendly and helpful and the breakfast really nice.
Also the hotel is situated very near the centre of Mahon but wonderfully quiet and peaceful.
One small thing that could be improved would be the provision of tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms,but other than that we couldn't have wished for a better stay.
Everything they say about this hotel is true, but for us it was a disaster as we could get no proper sleep for the duration of our 4 day visit. We arrived home exhausted and ill because the air con seemed to be set on freeze, despite the air con controller panel claiming the room was 23 degrees. It was hot and humid outside, so we needed to cool the room, but kept waking up too hot or too cold with dry eyes and sore throat. Maybe the blocked filter panel was the cause. Photo attached.
Such a shame, as it truly is a beautiful hotel with some exquisite art and such lovely staff. I’m sure they’ll fix the problem soon.
