Beautiful location, pool, restaurant, beach
the rooms are not in style with the building and the unique place. (poor floors!)
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
This is not a 5 star hotel for many reasons.. (i.e. rooms are dated and small, no gym, we had problems with our shower which was never fixed and so on..) Hardly a 4 star but yet with 5 star prices!!
Very nice position,onthe coast and surrounded by dramatic scenery in amongst the mountainsd.Lovely beach setting and superb swimming.Excellent beach facilities and good bar and restaurant.
Its secluded position and lovely gardens and the proximity of the sea made for a relaxing time. the Staff were friendly and helpful and the food excellent. it was the last week of the season so rather quiet which suited us . Those looking for a lively family holiday would not be attracted here but there was enough to amuse our group Tennis, sailing and ponies. The bar and restaurant prices are high but it is rated 5 star so you expect that
An elegant hotel in a beautiful location. Hotel itself very quiet and relaxed.
Unfortunately there was an annoying charge of 15 euros per day for a beach bed. Drinks a little expensive.
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.
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 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.
Stunning location; magnificent gardens; pool and aspect
For the price the room was disappointing - very small; quite tired and bathroom tiny and old - not good value. Also, for the size and reputation oif the hotel, the choice of restaurants was very limited.
Only the location.That is all.
The staff and decoration of the hotel really out dated.
Really enjoyed stay Restaurant staff ranged from ok to rude at the beach bar - the weak ling
The most amazing location. Beautiful grounds well tended. Tennis, crazy golf, putting golf, swimming pools, a variety of places to eat and of course the beautiful beach setting. Attentive staff. A very special place.
Having to pay for loungers on the beach when you are a hotel guest - they are very expensive. Expensive food - not up to standard if charging that price.
Once you read about all the famous guests that have stayed in the hotel since 1929 then you know that this place is special. The hotel is set in an idilic location with beautiful gardens, private beachfront and 2 outdoor swimming pools. The service was excellent.
El entorno del hotel es idílico, y por lo menos en estas fechas está tranquilo, sin masificación. El desayuno es muy bueno.
Es demasiado caro en cuanto a la relación calidad-precio; las habitaciones son más de un hotel de 4 estrellas, y el precio de las consumiciones y del restaurante es excesivo. Es un detalle muy feo que, pagando lo que se paga la estancia en este hotel, haya que pagar las tumbonas de la playa por muy pública que sea; el hotel debería facilitar tumbonas en la playa a sus clientes, como ocurre en prácticamente todos los hoteles de playa de 5 estrellas.
