Look. This is Formentera and it's expensive, beautiful but simple. However, this place is under new ownership this season and has barely had a lick of paint before opening. This makes it bad value for money and with strong competition from better places. We liked the location fairly near a beach and the pool itself was great. Our room/suite was huge and with outdoor terrace.
That's the good points. The downside was that the place sorely needs modernising. It's very 1960s and all of the outside furniture in the pool area is old and faded. There is a fence around the pool itself and the vibe is very uncool. Nobody spent any time in this area as it was off putting. The furniture inside was also shabby - a wardrobe with Pokemon stickers on it and an old sofa outside that my dog wouldn't sleep on!
The owner neglected to tell us there was no drinking water. We wondered why the coffee was salty in the morning!
The main issue was the charges for cleaning. There wasn't any cleaning. Four white towels were supplied and we used these all week. As you can imagine, they became grubby pretty quickly. We stayed in three other places during our trip and they were all cheaper and they all supplied clean towels daily. Why not here?
This could be a real gem. We won't return until a refurb though!More
