A stunning location. Beautiful garden. The drive to the hotel was amazing, steep cliffs, clear blue water below. A hotel full of history and elegance. Glad I came! Next visit will be longer than just a few hours.

Excellent service and helpful employees. The gardens and the view from tarrace of the sea view room are awesome. The beach area is nice without strong wind neither waves. It seems that the water there is the bluest and clearest of the island. Hope to be back!

Lovely hotel with an important history and much to tell. Stunning location, already the trip to the hotel is every penny worth it. Amazing hotel staff with the eye for details. The pool is spectacular and not even talking about the beach - absolutely breath taking

The road to Formentor is listed among the most dangerous in the world. Getting there at night has its advantages; you can't see the steep drops into the sea hundreds of feet below. During the day, the road is full of super fit cyclists making it even more hazardous. All this means that, once you get to the Hotel, you...

The hotel was just lovely. It has a bygone era feel to it. It was very remote and very relaxing. My only hesitation in giving it 5 stars was the food. It was good, just not great. After a few days, I was bored and looking for something else. I would highly recommend this resort. And would go here again.

If you seek a real treat in a very special hotel with fabulous food, views to die for and, if you choose, to add tough cycling to the menu, then this is a joy. With or without the cycling, go to this hotel.

We stayed for four nights this week in a sea view room. Loved the space offered by the hotel , both internally and around the pool and gardens.
