Almost like paradise but do not end up in a room that is connectted to the room next door unless you like to hear every private detail of your neighbour's activities. The view and location is fantastic and there is a choice in excellent restaurants and activities. I am not a garden person but this garden really amazed me every... More

Staying at the Barcelo Formentor can be likened to staying at Brown's (Mayfair) planted in Eden by the sea. Of course, a refurbishment is urgently needed and,I believe may occur in a year or two. In the meantime,I must say it was a joy to spend seven nights there and would recommend a stay to anyone looking for some pure... More

We stayed as a family here for 5 nights in the cheaper rooms and the stay exceeded our expectations. The rooms were lovely with delightful views over the wonderful gardens and a partial sea view. We were on half board and the food was very good including the lobster even though it was a buffet. The hotel has a truly... More

Formentor is absolutely beautiful. And the hotel set-up is great: beach is incredible, the pool is good, the gardens are lovely, there are tennis courts and a horse riding centre. It should be the perfect 5 star family holiday - but it really disappoints. The hotel needs a refurb. The decor is tired, the carpets are threadbare (and totally worn... More

While the property is undeniably gorgeous - white sandy beaches with crystal clear water and expansive, well manicured gardens - that is arguably all the Barcelo Formentor has going for it. The rooms looked like they had seen better days and the food was over priced and virtually inedible. The beautiful beach was over crowded with residents and tourists pouring... More

Without doubt, the hotel occupies an almost unrivalled location – the views and tranquillity are wonderful. But if you are looking for a five star service and an experience that presents value for money, go elsewhere. We arrived for our six night stay and were shown to a room that was smaller and less impressive than various low budget business... More

Just spent a week at the Barcelo Formentor. Had a mountain view room which was a bit small and the shower was too low for my 6ft husband to fit under. Those 2 issues aside the hotel was great. Location stunning, staff incredibly helpful, pool area beautiful. Gardens were stunning. Thought breakfast was excellent as was the food and service... More

The rooms were extremely cramped and dated and the sea view rooms that we paid for had no sea view! We stayed in a number of 5* hotels during our trip and this was the only one to disappoint and yet it was by far the most expensive. Service in the main hotel restaurant was generally poor apart from in... More

We loved our one week stay at the hotel. If you are up for spending the money, this hotel is quite a lovely experience. We choose it because it has many lovely shaded outdoor areas. Including a tree lined beach. The ground are beautiful and the atmosphere is very relaxing. The staff was always friendly and very attentive. There is... More
