The location is great for peace and quiet, right by the beach in its own bay. The gardens are magnificent. The view from our room terrace and from the breakfast/dinner terrace were superb. A great place to celebrate our anniversary and had a wonderful stay. However, fortunately we were touring, so only had to endure the bad points for one night.
Having stayed at many 4 and 5 star hotels, this one is very poor value for money. A hotel charging 6 Star prices, bordering on 2 to 3 star quality and facilities in the rooms. 2 single beds pushed together to make a double, very poor quality bath/shower/toilet, No tea/coffee making facilities, very low quality stocked minibar, there are better room service menus in a basic holiday inn or hilton (also at a third of the price and without a 20% room service charge on top of this). Unfortunately some of the staff think it's a 5 star as well, with their stuffy attitude. Unbelievably high prices in the restaurant and not of the quality experienced in many other establishments in Spain.
Beautiful location, pool, restaurant, beach
the rooms are not in style with the building and the unique place. (poor floors!)
I really enjoyed the secluded location,wonderful gardens,cristal clear water,fantastic view of the Formentor bay from my sea side room.
I think that having to pay 30 euros for a sun chair at the beach,which is supposedly reserved to Barcelo Formentor guests,is frankly too much,given the rather stiff price of the hotel accomodation ..
The location is perfect for a luxury, peaceful holiday in excellent quality and beautiful surroundings. The hotel exudes an atmosphere of days gone by whilst providing every modern luxury. The beach, despite being public, has an air of exclusivity. The gardens were superb, more aptly described as parklands than gardens. The view of the bay from our bedroom was one of the best sea views ever experienced. The breakfast buffet is extensive.
The restaurant and bars were not cheap but no worse than you would expect from a five star hotel
The proximity to the Fromentor Coast is great and this aspect is certainly worth the visit.
This hotel really did not suit us at all. It was like a country club, and not 'Spanish' at all which was disapointing. Food was average and the whole feel was very old and out dated. Rooms were old looking, food was buffet and OK - but lacked personality. It was 5 star and certaily did not feel it. Staff did not smile and needed to be asked and probed for information.. it was also completely uninhabited, so it was hard to understand why they would ignore you for 3 minutes while standing at reception waiting to ask a question? The beach was fine and apparently completely brillant for these parts?? Although we are Australians and this was really a very average beach for us. Not good value for money.
The beach, sea and beach restaurant
mix of visitors, many elderly people or couples with toddlers. Remote location was a drawback as well.
