“Amazing breakfast. Some strict rules”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

The hotel it´s pretty good. Rooms very confortable, made everyday, and clean. Nice beds and mattress. The view is pretty good if you´re at the pool side.
The breakfeast can´t be better. Infinity number of cakes, breads, fruits, jams, inlays, juices, coffee.
There is no better word to describe it than amazing.
The ambient of the hotel it´s pretty great. No big number of childrens allowed, that in our case was great, because we were there to enjoy ourself and we don´t want to hear kids screaming and running around.
The service at the hotel it´s ok. The people are not the most friendly of the world. But they easily talk to you if you try to talk them. But they will not be friendly by themself. (probably because they are trying to keep the guests intimacy),
The hotel offer to theirs guest a locker room to shower. So in your very last day, even after you checked out and spend all day long at the beach you can come back to the hotel and shower before start your journey back home.
The hotel also have an Restaurant that looks to be ok, but I can really tell nothing about because I never tryied.

The bad point in my point of view is that they have an incredible swimming pool, iluminated during the night, deep enough to spend time and enjoy but the rules of it are a little weird. When everyone are off from beach, and would like to enjoy their time at the hotel, the swimming pool seams to be the perfect place to finish a chill day. But you can not use the swimming pool after 8pm (there is sun light until 10pm during the summer). And no eating is allow at the pool area. The only bad think of the hotel.
And this is the only reason that they did not get a 4 or 5 stars.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms with the pool view, and maybe second floor, where you can see the views of the lan...

Entre Pinos is so relaxing and charming that you can spend the day around the gorgeous, huge swimming pool, order a beer, and not even leave to visit the over crowded beaches! I went twice last summer 2013 and will definitely be back this next summer! The first time I went alone, and I loved it so much that I returned a month later with my husband.
The staff go out of their way to give great service and make you welcome. The rooms are very comfortable, but if you want marble bathrooms and ultra high tech amenities, don´t even come to Formentera. The breakfast is legendary and better than any 5 star hotel I have stayed in. You don´t even need to rent a car as the bus stop is right outside the hotel and will take you everywhere on the island. You can also walk to the village of Es Calo where there are a few wonderful restaurants. This is not a tourist zone and the pace of life seems like 50 years ago, something very hard to find these days. There is a lovely atmosphere around the hotel and it almost feels like your own home as opposed to a hotel. There is no nightlife around but that makes it the perfect place to wind down. The perfect place to relaz, a real gem!

Room Tip: Above the swimming pool, with a view of the sea.

We have been patronizing this establishment in Formentera every year for the past 5 years, always during the Summer season, and highly rate it because it is professionally managed by its owners and this is a place that allows you to feel very relaxed and casual (in a distinctive "chill out" / bohemian setting). This is definitely not the place to be if you look for a massive hotel with parties and loud DJ/pool music (there are plenty of other establishments offering this on the island). Nor should you be looking here for "glamour / luxury", although we think it has plenty of charm and offers everything that is required for a good beach holiday.

Over the years the hotel has done constant improvements to the services and amenities, paying great attention to the details that matters (consistent, cleanliness, a choice of room categories with the essentials, flexibility for half board if needed). Also, they have their own pastry chef which means that the Breakfast Buffet is abundant (with hot and cold food, and an immense variety of pastries, cakes and creative "ensaimadas" - a local favorite). In the afternoon these delicacies can also be purchased by guests and non-guests from the "Sucre" café / restaurant. It is no wonder, then, that they also supply their products to other establishments on the island.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for rooms overlooking the pine trees and facing the sea. They are a little more price...

It was all OK! The breakfast was great, about service, nice People always helping out, the pool was big and it was wonderful to enjoy it when you were back from a day of seaside. A very good quality-price rate. We would like to go back to the same hotel!

Room Tip: We stayed in a room on the pool side and we could see the sea!

We stayed in this charming, family-run hotel for two weeks end of May and enjoyed every minute. The stuff is very attentive and friendly, they made us feel home from the moment we arrived. Rooms are very clean, equipped with a large bed, air-condition and a balcony. If you stay in a room at the pool side you can see the sun set every evening from your balcony.
The pool is great, clean and the girls from the cafeteria “Sucre” take care of you when you work on your suntan-they bring refreshments and tapas straight to your pool chair!
The cafeteria and bakery “Sucre” creates the best sweet sins on the island-make sure you try them at least once. Breakfast is served from 8 till 11 and it’s fantastic: an enormous variety of fresh baked bread rolls and pastry, fresh fruits, delicious coffee, Serrano ham, tortillas, eggs of all style…our favorite were the fresh grated tomatoes, spread on a toasted slice of bread along with some excellent olive oil!
We rented a scooter opposite the hotel and got a discount as we were guests at Entre Pinos.
We are looking forward to stay there again next year and miss the island and the friendly people already.

This is an amazing hotel. The hotel itself is very pretty. There's a big, clean pool. The hotel is surrounded with pine trees that smell amazing. You are away from all the towns so it is super quiet at night.
The rooms are very confortable. We had balcony too. I think the bathrooms got renovated recently because they were pretty modern.
In the morning, there is a really nice breakfast available with a huge amount of choice, from different types of bread, to fruits, to eggs, cheeses , etc. And it was really good.
We rented a scooter since the hotel is a away from the main towns. During the day, we would go from beaches to beaches and at night we went to the main towns to restaurant. The island is small so it is very easy to go around.

The only negative point in my eyes were the people at the reception. We found them not very welcoming and they almost looked bothered by our presence or they basically looked like they didn't care about us. If we would've got a nice welcoming, this hotel would've been just perfect.
