Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We came to have breakfast at the cafeteria, we asked for 2 big glasses of water and they brought a bottle cause they could only offer small glasses if you want more you have to pay for it. We sent it back and then they brought the wrong breakfast. When we complained the runner asked us if we had woken up on the wrong side of the bed and told us to chill. Super rude and very expensive. Cool view tho.

We have been coming to Formentera for 20 years and completely overlooked this place. Amazing views, but both nights we sat inside, it’s a great atmosphere. We had prawns, sea bass and a couple of glasses of the house red and white . All perfect. And followed by lovely traditional deserts. Highly recommend. We came twice in one week! Fantastic service.

We had a table outside with stunning sea views. The staff was friendly and the paella amazing! We asked for a fish and seafood paella, which was spot on in terms of taste and quantity. Try their aioli sauce and 'almejas'!

This was, no joke, one of the worst meals of the last year. Ordered: - fideua - mussels - Formentera calamari - salad The fideua was overcooked, oversalty, andmade with frozen shrimp. Something I don't really u derstandthis place is just by the sea. They also used saphron, which gives it that yellow aspect, but ruins the sea taste. The mussels and the calamari were not fresh. Really disappointing. The salad was eatable, just that carrods and maize from the pot. They charge you for the stunning viee, not for the food. Avoid it, folks.

Nice place with a lovely view, it's perfect for a romantic dinner, you need to book it and if you can ask for the tables outside near the window, where you can see a beautiful sunset that you never forget, all served with good and fresh sea food, variety, quality and homemade desserts.

We booked the sea view room, what a stunning view, it is the view you dream of when thinking about the Mediterranean, simply fantastic. The rooms are basic but this is a hostel, and not a hotel. The rooms are a good standard and very clean. The bathroom is small with a very small shower cabinet. The staff are fantastic, they make you feel very welcome. Make sure you have breakfast in the café, it is an absolute pleasure to sit and look over the crystal clear waters, good food and great staff. There is a restaurant adjoining the accommodation, lovely food again with a stunning view. The hostal is in Es Calo which is a small village with a few restaurants and a small supermarket. Es Calo is situated at the opposite end of the island to the ferry port, but, by car is only a 10 minute trip away. The beaches around Es Calo are lovely but I recommend you hire some transport (car or scooter) as you need to visit the other beaches of Playa Migjorn. Overall I would highly recommend this as a place to stay.

From the terrace of this restaurant you will enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the mediterranean. The blue waters look like a pool, it feels like you are in the Maldives. Although a Zodiac picks you up if you reach by boat I preferred to swim and swim back after having lunch. The sea is so beautiful you just want to enjoy it. We had lunch a party of four and after light and fresh starters we shared the best lobster paella ever and gambas. The restaurant is "populaire" not pretentious which is perfect as they allow you to seat with your swimsuit still wet from the sea.

This is a hostel, and not a hotel. Therefore the standard of the romos is a lot more simple tan you would expect from a hotel. However, it has the basics. Good beds. A large warderobe, and a we had a great balcony with sea view. The room also had air conditioning, which is necesary in the summer. The bathroom is very small, and the shower cabinet is so small that a "large" person would have difficulty making proper use of the shower. Also, there was only one bedside table and reading light. So..... why should you visit Hostal Can Rafaelet? The location is great: with excellent views. You have nice rocky "calas" right next to the hostel. Also, with a car or a moped, you are only 5 minutes away from the sandy beaches on the Migjorn side of the island. Breakfast is not included, but I stil recommend to eat breakfast on the terrace of the bar downstairs. A great way to start the day. The restaurant which is located in the same building is also OK, although not top notch cuisine. I would say it is rather pricey for what you get, but it is very convenient, and the views are nice. This hostel is usually booked by regulars from year to year, so be early if you want to get a room in the high season. They also have apartments.
