    “Elegant and quiet”

    We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at this quietly refined and elegant hotel. Service was excellent and the setting beautiful. Lazy days spent by the pool and/or in the lovely gardens. It was a shame that some guests with younger children did not respect the general quietness of the hotel and it's grounds. Will definitely return.

    “Beautiful”

    We very much enjoyed a two night stay at the Formentor as part of a longer trip to Mallorca. With impressive historical antecedents, the hotel is something of a garden paradise. Having visited for a recce as part of a trip to Cap de Formentor last year, it is clear that the owners are continuing to invest in the hotel. Our welcome - with a refreshing drink and cooling towel was much appreciated after the cross island drive. Dinner in El Pi restaurant was beautiful and well worth the expense. The large gardens are beautifully maintained. Breakfast (a good selection of hot foods, freshly cooked omelettes, cheese, hams, fruits, cereals, pastries and juices) was taken on the terrace and was lovely. White linen table cloths and a cold glass of cava added to a wonderful start to the day. Our sea view room had a large and comfortable bed. Whilst not every single aspect of the decor was on-point, this didn't detract from our enjoyment. The beach was lovely - we enjoyed both lounging by the sand and time spend canoeing. Likewise, the pool area is idyllic. Staff all exceptionally friendly. Exceeded our expectations.

    “Many happy returns!”

    Having first come to the Formentor nearly 40 years ago my wife and I confidently arranged to come again in June. As usual we reserved a room with sea view and terrace. There can be no more stunning views to wake up to than that one. Barcelo should be congratulated on not trying to modernise the hotel in accordance with "group policy and image". This often ruins good hotels which are bought by big groups. It is a great pleasure to be greeted by staff members who have been there for many years. Particularly worth mentioning are the restaurant by the pool, the bar on the main terrace and the buffet dinner which has an amazing selection of choices to suit all tastes and appetites.. A unique feature is the music; Alex the very accomplished pianist has an amazing repertoire and on Sunday evening a brilliant guitarist played both classical and more modern selections. We hope to return in September..

    “HEAVEN ON EARTH!”

    Back to Paradise again, perfection as last October - the only real complaint was that we were there during last week's heat-wave and they didn't move the palm trees to give us continuous shade beside the pool! The reception area has been re-vamped to remove clutter, but they should have kept a clock! New carpets on the landings - views differ on whether an improvement. I've read the complaints, and have to say they are totally different from the experiences of my friend and myself. I have never been to a better hotel for service. I appreciate, though, that if you don't book a sea-view room you may be disappointed, but the website makes clear the difference. It's also important to remember that this hotel is nearly 90 years old, and many choose to go because of the traditional atmosphere. The hotel was fully-booked, but the service remained exceptionally good. On top of this, the beds are wonderful, and the very necessary air-con top notch! My only minor grumble is that there should be rails beside the steps down to the pool. Rumour has it that the ownership of the hotel changed recently - we hope this does not affect the quality in any way.

    “Nice location, but not as it looks on the photos”

    Small rooms that were amazing 30 years ago. cheap floors and cheap furniture. No private beach, and many many old people. We had a broken shower that was not fixed. Shame, as the place could be great - had they cared more for it. Super overpriced too!!
