    Good 6.0
    Disappointing.
    So sad to see that the legendary Formentor Hotel has turned into a mediocre package holiday hotel for Brits. The interiors are old fashioned, the staff distant rather than welcoming. It was very disappointing that so few rooms have balconies and what a shame that the new hotel owners do not make the most of the spectacular setting by investing in a beautiful spot for morning coffee, lunch, drinks or dinner close to the waterfront. A massive wasted opportunity especially as the other locations to eat and drink are fine but not special.

    Truly a Royal Hideaway
    Magical, from the drive down to Formentor to the last glance back on departure. The setting, our room and the wonderful attention of all the staff made our first visit a most enjoyable experience. Formentor - a Royal Hideaway, certainly lives up to its name. A classoc 5 star hotel; graceful and elegant without prevention. Next year's stay is already being planned.

    Beautiful hotel, just don’t get our room!
    Beautiful hotel in an amazing location. We brought our 13 month old child and unfortunately they allocated us a room directly above where they play live music that kept going till midnight. That aside, brilliant place. Just make sure you don’t get our room.

    Poor 2.0
    Hugely disappointing
    I have never taken the time to review a hotel being a constant traveller however feel compelled to o. This occasion. Hotel Formentor was a dreadful disappointment ! Having booked a top seaview room we were relegated to the top floor whose ceilings were barely higher than my husbands 6ft 3 height ! Small Windows no balcony tiny bathroom with rusty bath and no space to move in ! The hotel was set I. Beautiful grounds but was tired and old and the restaurant. By pool was shut ! The staff were few and far between and impossible to get service ! There was no service at the pool for drinks and no Towell boys ! It had definately seen better days ! I tried to order a glass of wine at bar and was told they had run out due to a conference they were hosting ! Lastly it porports to be a beach hotel but the hotel does not have its own beach one needs to walk 10 mins down to a public beach where you are charged 40 to 60 euros for a subbed ! We cancelled our stay after one night and checked into the Jamira hotel in Soller which is incredible !
