Stayed here for a week in early September, just after the school holidays. We had a great time here - the food, staff and service was excellent. I wasn't overly impressed with the room though. For a 5 star hotel to have clip lock flooring and dodgy bathroom doors wasn't what i'd call 5 star. Everything else is so you...

Great experience. Fantastic location, in a huge lush garden near I think the most beautiful beach in Mallorca. First impression of the hotel was slightly spoilt by the threadbare carpet (which we noticed while going up the stairs), From then on everything was perfect - beautiful garden, nice room, amazing view, good food, good service..

Isolated and all a bit old fashioned. I would recommend 2 days are enough. To get anywhere you needed to go up or down hairpin bends. Having done it several times you certainly feel you could pass an advanced driving test!

Stunning location and beautiful hotel. Lovely ambience with friendly, helpful staff. Food superb with plenty of variety in the evening buffet and something for everyone at breakfast! Standard rooms a little tired and could use a freshen up but super comfortable beds. Would happily return tomorrow!!

Great Hotel, Great Staff, Stunning Grounds, Peaceful and serene! Dining at the hotel is a little pricier. Found it better to take a cab into the closest town where there are an abundant of restaurants to choose from.

The hotel is situated in stunning gardens and is an exceptional position on the beach. The rooms do,however, need to be modernised and the bathrooms are very basic and old fashioned. Our bathroom had a rotting door and it smelt somewhat.

My husband and I stayed at Barcelo Formentor for the start of our honeymoon in Spain (6 days total). We are in our late twenties and we're probably the youngest people there but that didn't bother us, we enjoy the more relaxing scene anyway so it was just the ticket. We couldn't have chosen a better hotel and location. As...
