Reviewed September 9, 2013

A friend booked this hostel, and by the photos on the internet, I was not 100% certain, but as I arrived, I was fully convinced, that was the place to be.

The receptionist was extremaly friendly (specially with the daughter of my friend), the hotel has different rooms (some in the main building in front of the pool and on the breakfast room, other in appartments behind the hotel and ours, rooms situated in direction to the beach, that look like small bungalows).

Our room (all of them ground floor) is in a 3 to 4 room lines. Quiet location, 2 minutes walking to the beach on one direction, to the pool and breakfast on the other. A Main room with double bed and big bathroom, and windows with mosquito protection. Island decoration. No television. Just perfect.

Breakfast was surprisingly provided with a wide variedity, and nothing important was missing. Service was personal and friendly all the time.

And the situation... the platja de Migjorn is a perfect paradise for families and for people who would like to be near from the largest beach of formentera (perfect for morning long walks) with good bus connections and Car/Moto to rent.

Formentera is a paradise on earth and to spend a few days in here you have to taste an hotel with transmits that philosophy. Ca Mari is the place. You don´t have tv because all you need is the sound of the sea at night. Its familiar, cosy and friendly, rooms relaxing and the only issue is, sometimes, the insects, but thats the price of living inside nature greatest islands. Ive been in Formentera four times and I always stay here because really, there is no such place in the island, to be in the best enverionment.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with sea views, there only 3 of them but its worth it!

Jos saapuu Formenteralle vetäytyäkseen luonnon rauhaan meren äärelle, Hotel Ca Mari toimii oikein hyvin. Se on aivan muutaman kymmenen metrin päässä monen mielestä Formenteran parhaimmasta rannasta, Playa Migjornista.

Huoneet ovat pääasiallisesti rivitalomuodostelmissa palmujen ja kauniiden pensaiden keskellä. Omaa tilaa ja oma "etupihakin" löytyy suurimmasta osasta huoneita. Osa huoneista sijoittuu päärakennukseen, jolloin nähtävästi joutuu asumaan hiukan ahtaammin ja hieman kauempana rannasta.

Huoneet ovat hyvin pelkistettyjä. Ilmastointia ei ole, kattotuuletin pyörii kesäkuumalla parhaansa mukaan. Kylpyhuonettakaan ei oltu juuri varuseltu - käsisaippuakin puuttui. Huone oli kuitenkin perussiisti ja mukavan tilava. Sänky oli myös pehmeä nukkua.

Hotellin alueella on pienehkö uima-allas aurinkotuoleineen, tosin meidän mielestämme se tuntui ajan tuhlaukselta, kun aivan kivenheiton päässä on ihana turkoosi meri ja pitkä hieno ranta.

Hotellin kulman takana on pieni ruokakauppa, sekä skootterivuokraamo, mikäli haluttaa lähteä etsiskelemään vielä hienompia rantoja.

Hotelli tarjoaa keskivertohyvää buffetaamiaista, ja ei-niin-tasokasta buffetpäivällistä, jonka ruoka on muokattu mitäänsanomattomaksi jokaisen turistin suuhun sopivaksi. Itse lähdimme päivälliselle hieman kauemmas lähistön ravintoloihin.

Henkilökunta palveli meitä oikein ystävällisesti, vaikka he eivät parhaalla tahdollakaan osanneet juuri englantia - emmekä me espanjaa. Ongelmia ei silti ollut.

Formenteran valtti on tietenkin luonto, rauha ja ihana ranta. Jos niitä lähtee hakemaan, eikä luule saapuvansa Hiltoniin, ei varmasti pety tässä kohtuuhintaisessa hotellissakaan. Jos taas kaipaa luksusta, sitä ei saa täältä eikä tällä hinnalla.

If you arrive to Formentera to spend some peaceful days by the beautiful sea, Hotel Ca Mari works very well. It's located only about 50 meters from Playa Migjorn, which is one of the best beaches in the island.

Most of the rooms are in a rowhouse forming, in the middle of palm trees and nice looking bushes. There is plenty of own room and even a small yard in front of each room. Some of the rooms are located in the main building, in which you may have a bit less space and a bit longer distance to the beach.

The rooms are very basic. There is no air conditioning, the roof ventilator tries to do it's best. The bathroom is also poorly equipped - even the hand soap was missing. However, the room was clean and very spacious. The bed was soft and comfortable to sleep.

There is a smallish swimming pool with sun loungers in the hotel area, although we thought it would be loss of time when you are a stone's throw from a turquoise sea and a long, beautiful beach.

Around the corner there is a small food store and a place to rent scooters, if you wish to go and find even more beautiful beaches.

The hotel offers breakfast buffet which is okay, and not-so-charming dinner buffet, which is bland and tasteless. We had dinner in other restaurants nearby.

The staff served us in a very friendly way, although they barely spoke any English - and we didn't speak any Spanish. They usually don't have many English-speakers there. But everything went ok, we didn't have any problems.

The best thing in Formentera is nature, peace and the lovely beach. If you come after those, and don't expect to arrive at a Hilton hotel, you won't be disappointed in this reasonably priced place. If you are seeking for luxury, you won't find it here or with this price.
