We booked for 3 nights but checked out after the first night. The grounds and new pool area are magnificent - but the hotel itself is hugely outdated and has some strange ideas about what constitutes 5 star. For example, our back room ( 249 ) had plastic wood laminate floors, a dirty rug to slip on, no lights to...

Hotel Formentor is now our regular spring break. This is the highest praise that we can give. The location is truly wonderful, the gardens a joy and the service exactly what you would expect of a 5 star hotel. The staff are always friendly and efficient.

At the very top of the island in the Formentor cove is this beautiful hotel built with 1930's panache but retaining all the style and elegance to this day. Immaculate, luxurious, amazing staff, fantastic food with all your needs catered for. The beach is a dream - reserve a bed and eat at the Platja Mar - or relax by...

Had a very relaxing few days. The hotel location is fantastic. The gardens are spectacular, and the pools are heaven. Great outdoor bars and restaurants, the evening buffet is lovely be it a little bit repetative after a few days. The room was very clean and comfortable, my only gripe was the shower. The mixer tap didn't work properly and...

Excellent room and common areas. Fantastic views of the sea, mountains, and hotel gardens. Very minor inconveniences for a business raveler (no desk in the room, and fewer outlets than most modern hotels.) Amenities were very nice and welcome: toiletries, robe and slippers, chocolates on the nightstand,

First class hotel in a stunning location with fantastic grounds and view over the surrounding hills and the Bay of Pollensa to die for. Not cheap but you get what you pay for. Great place to go if you just want to relax and wind down.

Amazing location, stunning beaches and beautiful gardens. The hotel is definitely one of the best on the entire island. You should rent out a car to experience the surroundings: Cap de Formentor and Mirador are places that will blow your mind. The staff was very friendly at the hotel and the service pretty good. On top of this great experience...
