A beautiful hotel on an impressive estate. Great food, friendly service, huge, deep pool. Good for families, lots of outside space. Great if you have a boat. Only issue was quite frightening journey to Puerto Pollensa (for restaurants) across the mountain. Not good for car sickness!!!

How disappointing that such a potentially wonderful hotel has not moved with the times. We were treated on check-in as a nuisance as there had been a misunderstanding with our reservation made by our booking agent. We had booked sea view rooms but the hotel denied this, probably because they had no sea view rooms available apart from a suite... More

Last here 35 years ago when it was at the top of its game and supercool. Looked in hoping for the restaurant lunch by the pool. OK I was on crutches. For some extraordinary reason the reception staff thought the pool/restaurant would be accessible by me. The terrace staff quickly disabused that notion so we gave up and left. We... More

We arrived a couple days ago for a 10-day stay, and we're seriously disappointed in the state of the rooms. But we are kind of stuck, as it is high season here. We have two interconnecting rooms in the garden level as we have two kids. The rooms and bathrooms are small and musty smelling, the air conditioners are old... More

A good location an hour from the airport. Perhaps my expectations were unfairly high but someone said 4* and the price does reflect this. I have been to old school hotels in Italy, France and Greece and this has the most neglected rooms I have seen in a long time. The basic room rate is €450 per night. The rooms... More

A lovely old school hotel. Completely unspoilt with simply the best beach/cove on the island. The hotel itself is set in the most beautiful grounds, walls clad in bourganvillia, and the prettiest beach with the bluest of seas. One sticking point is the price of the sun beds - residents are able to reserve beds but they come with a... More

In a prime setting of the beloved Formentor beach a magical vacation is all but guaranteed. The service here does all it can to make sure if it. Breakfast is a delicious affair you might want to extend for hours. The rooms could use and update to live up to the setting and the prices.

Let me say that the service and location is stellar . The staff very polite. I was thrilled when I saw the beach and beautiful scenery. Unfortunately , the beach was an additional cost for seating and extremely public . They sold in 3 restaurants but they all had the same food . A step up from institutional It was... More

Beautiful location up in north west Mallorca, with the hotel looking onto the beach. Probably the best view from the dining balcony that we have ever had. Staff are really good, pools are great, the beach was only 5 mins walk, the gardens are beautiful and the rooms good. We also tried the tennis and crazy golf. We have already... More

We have stayed at the Formentor Hotel for the last 30 years at many different times of the year and every time we leave we say just how much we have enjoyed the holiday. The staff are so good they make such a difference to our stay and whilst we understand the Hotel are contemplating a refurbishment sometime in the... More
