I love staying in Formentera and this hotel is perfectly placed for the beach, it's between two great places to eat and drink. Gecko Beach has great food, cocktails and evening dining with a fabulous sunset and Lucky Bar is perfect for lunchtime cerveza and nibbles, plus sun-loungers to die for...
The location of the hotel is very convenient - it is close to the port. No wifi in the room but could use the signal from the restaurant downstairs.
The only unclear thing was that the check in had to be done at the tower (doesn't remotely look like a hotel reception so we had to ask around a few times).
There is music downstairs from the restaurants but it wasn't on till late.
One of the beaches is walking distance. There's also a supermarket and a pharmacy close by.
"Apartments in pine forest close to stunning beach"
I can't fault this hotel - everything was perfect from start to finish. The accomodation is basic but we only used it for showers & to sleep in & it was more than adequate for both these things. The area is truly stunning with the apartments set in acres of shady pine forests. Depending on the situation of your apartment you may have to walk quite a distance down to the restaurant, pool, snack bar & beach but we didn't mind as we're fit & happy to get the exercise. There was a quieter pool & snack bar nearer the reception area where they also had a fantastic theatre for shows in the evening.
The animation team were the best I have ever seen. They worked tirelessly from morning to late evening to provide a varied entertainment programme for everyone of all ages. The shows they put on in the evenings were of a very high standard. The team were really friendly without being intrusive.
The food in the hotel was also of a very high standard - HUGE choice every meal - great quality of meat & fish etc. The staff worked so hard to clear & reset tables for you as quickly as possible.
The coffee served in the snack bars was filter coffee with hot milk as served in Costa/Starbucks - in china cups- couldn't believe it! Also the choice & quality of ice creams was great.
My husband & son went out on bikes a few times which were provided free by the hotel. The roads are very busy so not for the inexperienced. Beaches close by are stunning with nice boarded walkways to get to them.
