There is no doubt that the grounds and location are absolutely superb, the Hotel has lost its exclusiveness from the white polo t shirts worn by the concierge to the 20 year old room style. I wouldn't pay the money I paid again, I would stay there but for half the money. The fact that you have to by 60...

Back to Formentor for another relaxing family holiday. The feeling of space and grandeur is evident throughout the public spaces. However the rooms are small and the bathrooms in need of updating. Also beware the sea view rooms give a view predominantly of the beautiful, but very large trees, ask for a sea view room on the 2nd or 3rd...

Can not fault this hotel. We have never had a holiday like it. Evrything was spot on. Service fantastic, suite excellent. Garden and pools superb. What a setting. Needed to have a rental car to get about. Approach roads have spectacular views, but quite challenging.

We came to the hotel after sailing. It was blissfully peaceful, and the setting was stunningly beautiful. We did some travelling to the lighthouse by car and also walked along one of the paths.We always ate in the hotel. We had a great time, and would certainly go back!

Hotel Formentor opened in about 1930. Many famous people have stayed there, many prestigious events have taken place there. The hotel does well in quietly letting its history show. Above all Hotel Formentor is in the most fabulous position, nestled at the foot of the Eastern extreme of the Tramuntana mountains, and overlooking some of the prettiest Mediterranean sea, and...

This is an exceptionally good hotel, with outstanding food and service. The gardens are beautiful with very fine views across the bay. Our only disappointment was that there is no longer a private beach, and the beach can be very crowded indeed.

Value for money is enhanced by joining loyalty scheme and booking advanced rate. This time we chose a mountain view room (cheaper in order to have an extra night) and I was disappointed...
