    “Stunning Location”

    As the title states the location of this hotel is truly magnificent !! The access directly to the beach is a mere short stroll through gardens which are manicured in every detail, the grounds in their entirity are wonderful. Amazing can only describe the views from any part of the hotel which will blow you away no matter where you have been in the world, you could quite easily be in the Caribbean, this hotel really does benefit from a perfect unique position. The overall hotel and public areas are great, its not your Dubai bling but a lovely blend of traditional regal splendour mixed with a Spanish feel. As a negative the rooms are without doubt somewhat tiered and not anywhere near 5 star quality, the bathrooms equally need some attention even in our suite. Breakfast is very good with plenty of choice to satisfy, the two beach restaurants (one Italian, nice enough for lunch) are equally good and directly on the beach which was so lovely, although very popular/busy with guest from outside the hotel, even out of school holidays. If you try one dish you must have the seafood Paella in "Platja Mar" it is without doubt outstanding !!! and I've had lots. A major quib I heard throughout our stay and which I agree is the beds on the beach, it is impossible to stay in the direct heat without a parasol, however this luxury with two beds will cost you 40/60 Euros per day, with a family of 4 this does add up. I appreciate this is a very popular area/beach but the hotel should really offer a bigger discount for hotel guest as we are already paying a premium to stay. The pool is superb with the al a carte restaurant "El Pi" looking directly over it in shaded gardens. This restaurant is open for lunch and dinner with a very good menu, hence we had dinner a few times here. We tried the buffet dinner on our first night, and as another reviewer said this is quite poor in my opinion, the hotel really need to look at this area of dinning. Pollen old town is 20 min taxi ride, well worth the trip. Would I stay again, very very probably.

    “A place where time stops still”

    What a fabulous holiday we had at Formentor. We missed a day, we were both so relaxed we thought it was Thursday when it was Friday already. If you want a relaxed, stressfree, beautiful hotel with stunning pools and a perfect ocean, then treat yourself to this wonderful old school hotel. It has buckets of charm, wonderful staff and possibly the best massage with Naramone, in the best open air massage room I have ever had. Thank you Formentor, we will be back xxx

    “Hotel Formentor has lost that loving feeling.”

    Having been to the hotel for the past 4 years, our trip this year was a major disappointment. The hotel is now living on it's reputation and due to corporate greed,now concentrates on weddings more than it's guests. For families, you need to know the truth. We travelled with our 2 grandchildren in a junior suite whereby we had to make use of a pull out armchair as their bed. The shower was non existent, hot and cold water and very outdated. Hardly enough power in the shower to wash your face let alone wash your hair. The main restaurant in the evening has a kids corner with 2 choices every night..chips or nuggets and that's it!! Nothing else is an option. For adults the choice is also very basic. It is difficult to put together a decent meal, so you end up making do with nibbles to try and fill your plate.Breakfast is OK, but for a 5 star hotel, it should be much much better. Standing and watching the chef try and cook an omelette was embarrassing, and soft boiled eggs are hard boiled. The staff now seem to not care. We tried to say hello to some, but they were just not interested so we only said hello to the cleaners after this as they were always happy to say good morning. Down to the pool, their are limited parasols for the guests so you must get down to the pool very early or you will cook in the heat. We asked on our 2nd day if there were any more and were told they would be here by mid week but they never arrived. But by the Saturday when there was a wedding they amazingly arrived. To conclude, the hotel may have fantastic grounds which are very pretty and well maintained, but for the money you pay, the hotel is now 3 star at best and left us with a feeling that we should have stayed somewhere else. So our love affair with the Formentor is over and will not be returning. We told this to the receptionist when we left and were met with a look of contempt. So be aware before you go that all good thing's do come to an end!!

    “Fifth time to stay at this spectacular hotel”

    Highly recommend Formentor Hotel. Has old world charm in a spectacular setting. The restaurants, pool, service, and location are excellent. It is well worth making the trip from the airport to this little paradise in Mallorca. Will be coming back.
