Formentor, a Royal Hideaway Hotel
Ranked #8 of 28 Hotels in Port de Pollenca
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 July 2014

My Wife and I, along with our two daughters, spent five nights over the May Half term, on a bed and breakfast basis, and enjoyed Dinner on three nights. We had two adjoining sea view rooms on the third floor. The view was fantastic! We'd been concerned that previous reviews had commented that the rooms were tired and in need of a refurb. I can only assume there has been a refurb over the winter, as we found the very generous sized rooms immaculate. The bed was extremely comfortable, and there was a choose of pillow type. We've stayed at many five star hotels around the world over the years, and the Formentor is definitely top echelon in the five star ratings. The food was superb, the staff attentive and polite, and there were always sun beds available around the pool. The gardens are simply magical, and the whole area has a calm, relaxing monastic feel. We will DEFINITELY return!,

Room Tip: Best sea views are on the third floor

As we made a trip through Mallorca we stayed one night. I was dreaming about an extroardinary hotel on an extroadinary place... The scenery is really a dream, perfect. The hotel? I don't know. Perhaps because we stayes just one night... I payed for a see view. The see was far away. And the dinner? We took the option to eat à la carte. We did have to wait more than 2 hours for 2 courses. In a 5 star hotel? As we left nobody asked our opnion... Perhaps they do not need clients who stay just one nigth? Perhaps the prefer other clients? I don't regret our stay but I never come back.

Room Tip: Think twice before booking a sea view

Excellent hotel, exceptional settings and pristine sea. We absolutely loved our vacation - we normally travel to different parts of the world for summer vacations but Barcelo Formentor is the place to which you want to return - we already are planning our return next year. The food was great- excellent breakfast (the guy who makes eggs is so friendly), the dinner was of great quality, the food at the beach bar was exceptional. Most importantly, however, the staff were attentive, friendly and very helpful - nothing was too much trouble.

Stayed here for a business conference and even though the hotel is tucked away from main civilisation, the scenery is beautiful. Good accommodation, fantastic food and there is a number of activities to keep you busy. The pool and sea was warm enough to swim in for this time of year.

For a peaceful and restful holiday you cannot beat this hotels's location. Absolute luxury and worthy of it's 5* rating. I would definitely return as many people do. The staff were so friendly and helpful. I managed to leave some clothes behind and the hotel posted them on to me.

It s a Very nice hotel but staff is aging, and many of them speak very bad English. Beware of beach that does not belong to the hotel, because it steals from the bags even on the beach in the morning when there are only employees there.
