“The best choice for the relaxing vacation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2011

My girlfriend and I just came back from Formentera, where we stayed in Las Dunas Playa. From the first moment, we started to love this place and we will come back for sure.
We stayed in the studio, which was very near to the beach, so we could hear the sound of waves at night - very refreshing and just what we needed for the good sleep. Studio was fully equipped with all things we needed (kitchen with all necessary stuff, shower with enough room for two people, huge double bed), no luxury here, but very good quality for the price we paid.
Location is also very good, it is on the southern part of Migjorn beach, on border of "urban" - Es Arenals part and "rural" part of the beach with a very few objects on it and with no crowd. Regarding transport - best combination is to divide your staying in 3 equal parts - rent a moped for the northern and western beaches (Levant, Es Trucadors, Illetes, Cala Saona (if you really must go there)), rent a bicycle for the northern and middle part of Migjorn and Ses Platgetes) and walk on foot for the nearby parts of the Migjorn (Es Copinar, Es Arenals, Calo des Mort). When you walk to the beach from your room, if you go left you can find more people on the beach, easier entrance in the water and mostly family oriented people with small kids. On the right side is more deserted area, with more rocks, but with much more privacy and peace for you. We even succeeded to find a little cove just for two of us. If you are nudist, this part of Migjorn could be your favourite place on the whole island! And it is just 10 - 20 minutes walking from your apartment!
Nightlife is very poor here - you have two bars in the neighbourhood - Piratabus and Flipper&Chiller, music stops about 22h, but if you want crazy nightlife, you are on the wrong island!
Don't bring your fancy shoes; they will be full of sand all the time! Flip flops or sandals are all you need for the whole time staying here.
One more advice - don't miss morning swimming on the empty beach while sun rises. Coffee and breakfast can wait!

This is a very special place in a fantastic location. The owners are extremely friendly and our appartment overlooking the beach was very well thought out and comfortable. We had such a relaxing holiday and can't wait to go back.

many of the studios are right on the beach facing the sea, whilst others are in the midst of a beautiful pine forest 2 minutes walk away but still within earshot of the waves

the style is 1970s balearic construction - beautiful if you enjoy the charms of formentera and ibiza, but perhaps not so familiar for philippe starck-obsessives

the 'resort' is run by a local family, thus v laidback and easygoing

there's a pool and 'safe area' for young children to play

the restaurant is superb in terms of price and quality

i would recommend this to everyone, if you want a bit of formentera self-catering and want to go back to basics

VERY highly recommended. An apartment complex on big sand dunes that slope down to the beach. The apartments are not in one huge big block, but split into little 1/2 storey houses of about 4 apartments each, so the complex really blends in fantastically to the landscape and is not an eye sore in the least. We asked for an apartment by the beach and that's what we got, a mere 20 metres walk from the sand! Our terrace faced the sea/beach, so we could enjoy our dinner outside on the furniture provided. The staff are extremely friendly, also laid back, but not in a lazy way whatsoever, they were very friendly, helpful and welcoming, and full of advice on what to see on this precious little unspoilt island. We had a double apartment, fit for a couple. It was really big, with lots of space, a little kitchenette, and a bathroom with shower. The apartments seem to have been recently redecorated, which was really nice, as we paid only €50 a night, yet it felt more expensive. The only gripe was that, as it often is, two single beds had been pushed together to make a double. But that did not spoil our stay one bit. The complex is on the nicest part of the Migjorn beach, the sandiest stretch, so there are no rocks juttering out of the sand to surprise you. The water, so clean and clear, it was amazing. There is a small shop, a bar/restaurant, even a nice little horizon pool where you can pull up a deck chair and watch the sun setting over the island. I was not expecting much from a relatively cheap apartment complex (as you usually never do) but this really surprised me. Not to be confused with other apartment complexes!! Superb value, really, we had a wonderful time here, and I can't rate this place highly enough. We will be back next year without a doubt. Even if you don't get an apartment down by the beach like we did, you will still get a wonderful view of the tranquil sea. An Formentera, well, what a place, I don't think there's anywhere like it in the Mediterranean, peace on earth!
