“Very good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

We made the reservation via booking.com and we had no idea that we were booking with a company called Apartments Paya. We didn't know which of their 4 buildings we were going to be housed in, but in the end I was thrilled to learn that we'd be in Portu Saler because this is their building that has a direct access to the beach. The location is excellent and it's definitely the highlight of the apartment, as you have a pool and a very nice beach just outside of the apartment and you really don't have to leave Es Pujols to dine anywhere else at night (which is great so that you don't have to drive anywhere).
The downsides to the apartment would be that there's certainly not enough room for all guests to park their motorbikes in the small parking area designated for everyone.
Also, when we came back after our first day of exploring the island, our living room floor was covered with ants! Luckily the ants were all in one corner of the living room, close to the terrace door. The beds are twin beds and, at least mine, is only comfortable is you sleep on the borders of the bed (as the inner part sinks in tremendously).
It has been nice to have the apartment cleaned every 2-3 days - I knew that they'd come in every so often to change our towels but it has been a welcomed surprise to see that they also clean up a bit, make the beds, and replenish the toilet paper. :-)
We thought that we'd travel around at night via taxis (in order to not use the motorbike and check out some of the other restaurants in other areas of the island) but the taxi issue on the island is insane! There must be only a handful of them and you cannot rely on them whatsoever, so do keep that in mind when choosing where you want to stay.
All-in-all, I'd stay here again but only if the Paya Apartments would guarantee that I'd be in Portu Saler and not in one of their other buildings that's not right on the beach.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has a terrace that looks directly at the ocean, and on the 3rd floor because eve...

Formentera is an expensive island to holiday on, but if you're on a budget there are still very good options. Portu Saler apartments are one of them. They are situated perfectly in Es Pujols so that you are right at the meeting point of the beach, the promenade (with its restaurants and bars), and the main street with its shops etc. The accomodation may not suit the needs of everybody, but for those looking for somewhere clean & comfortable to stay while enjoying the island then they are perfect. Currently there are 3 images up on this website for these apartments and they seem to be of small flies congrugating in the corner of a ceiling in a room. I can say that we stayed in our apartment in October 2012 and it was perfectly clean and very comfortable. I would absolutely stay here again. We are returning in early May 2013 and my only disappointment about this place is that these very convenient apartments aren't open for the season that early.

Room Tip: Ask to stay in the block that's further away from the promenade if you're more sensitive to...
