Beach The beach in front of the hotel is gorgeous and you can also walk a little to see other beaches. The water is warm, calm and clear, bring snorkeling gear or at least goggles. There is a small (overpriced, of course) gift shop adjacent to the hotel where you can buy beach supplies too. Rooms The rooms are clean... More

OVERALL Hotel Riu la Mola situated on the south-east part of Formentera is a very clean, nice, well managed and family oriented hotel. From the looks of the hotell it was once a smaller hotell which laid close to the beach. After this a second building probably came to place. This can be seen as the two complexes is somewhat...

Spent 1 week in the Riu La Mola in June and it was amazing. Fantastic location on the beach and the food was unbelievably good. We went half board and the buffet breakfast and evening meal had plenty of choice, changed daily. If I had to be critical of 3 things it would be that the Wifi wasnt very good... More

A good hotel to use as a base or if on a budget as you can fill yourself up on the reasonable quality buffet food. The staff are friendly and attentive. Good public transport from the hotel although its much easier to hire a scooter and see the island. The nightly entertainment is very much geared around kids and I... More

We have recently returned from a week in the idyllic resort on Formentera. This is the second time we have visited this hotel and the island and it certainly will not be the last. The glorious white sandy beach and beautiful clear turquoise sea is comparable with the caribbean. The island is like Ibiza was 30 years ago, laid back... More

First time on Formentera and we tought it would be a pleasant stay but it turned up to be the exact opposite. This hotel is the worst "4-star" hotel I've ever visited and should be a 2-star at it's best. Where shall I start? - The rooms are very low standard and very cheap designed absolutely NOT 4- star -... More

First time to Formentera and wow did I make a mistake booking at Riu La Mola. 1. If you book online, be prepared to deal with their off-site call center. It deals with all the reservations. The website quoted and charged me in british pounds because I happened to be in the UK when I booked despite wishing to pay... More

Not enough can be said about the service you will experience in this hotel, I'm already looking to book for next year. Everyone knows their job and everyone is so friendly.

I stayed at the Riu La Mola for 2 nights in May 2014. The experienced was pretty awful. I dislike writing bad reviews but fellow traveller's expectations should be managed. This hotel is NOT 4 star. At best it's a 2 star. A summary would be the tacky cliched location where Brits and Germans (as well as other Europeans) come... More

Three years ago we had a very good holiday here and once again the same. We booked a package with Thomson who are owned by Tui, I mention this as in previous years Thomson did the Airport to hotel transfers this year Tui are doing both the UK and German transfers combined. In the past I would estimate transfer time... More
