Again this is not about the hotel but the restaurant on the beach, platje mar. I have lived in Mallorca for over twenty years. This beach restaurant linked to the Formentor hotel is a disgrace and an absolute rip off living in the bygone years still thinking that people are dumb enough to think it is worth getting ripped off just to eat at a place with some history...I would be embarrassed charging the prices they charge. €4,30 for a cafe cortado (espresso) for example!!!! Then expect to drink your wine out of plastic cups at a table set with zero care or thought. Come on rip off people; seriously.... are you trying to attract custom or turn it away? With so much competition in Mallorca surely a little more of an effort has to be made to set an example. After all, most people have driven some distance to get to the hotel. This place for it's average food and poor attitude can not be recommended. Oh and by the way to avoid paying the ridiculous charge to park in the car park next to the restaurant just tell the "guard" that you
are meeting guests of the hotel at the hotel to be let through and park for free in the hotel car park. You then have a five minute walk back down the road to the restaurant saving you a few euros in parking............which you are certainly going to need after you get the food bill!!!!!
