This was our second stay at this hotel, so we do like it. But the first stay was in early season before the so called entertainment started up. This time there was an open air "show" every night, from about 21.30 to 23.30. As well as being incredibly amatuer and awful (really just dancing with MIMING to film soundtracks etc!), it was unnecessarily loud. If you like early nights then you must ask for a room on the far side of the hotel (facing Ca Mari), where the din could not be heard. The noise in the rooms or studios facing the pool was so bad we couldn't listen to MP3 or watch TV in our studio whilst it was on.
Unlike other reviewers, we have found the hotel staff very helpful, and the maid service OK. On arrival we were given a studio only a few feet from the entrance to one of the pools, so that everyone getting out of the pool coould look straight into the room. But worse the room was stinking of cigarettes. We asked for another room which reception found for us straight away - very pleased.
A bonus at this hotel on the occasional wet days is the indoor pool, which is small but useful. Unfortunately, the 2 sauna cabins which feature in the brochure and website were both out of order during our entire stay. Enquiries as to when they would be repaired brought a vague response about "it is with the management". So if you are planning to use the saunas during your stay it would be worth checking directly with the hotel first.
Despite the faults, we will return to this hotel, as we love Formentera and this hotel is in a good central position on the island for cycling around.
