OK but...
This was our first trip to formentera - and let me start by saying that the island is beautiful. This hotel had exceptional customer service, however left a lot to be desired elsewhere. Most disappointing was the room... the linens were tired (pilling, very rough and worn and I found holes on one occassion), the bed was uncomfortable (we like a firm bed, however this was an ageing spring mattress and the springs would dig in overnight), tired furnishings... on the upside, it was always clean and the hotel is well located. We are a couple and the resort is very much geared towards families - lots of games, entertainment ect but not very conducive to a romantic trip. There is a bit too much activity for my liking (I.e activity staff approaching you while on the sun loungers to partake in a games to win a cocktail). The pool areas were always very busy and so was the beach in front of the resort (however to be fair, this was peak period and most of the islands beaches were this way). If I had a young family, I'm sure this trip would appeal to me as they have lots for kids to do and put on regular shows to keep them entertained. If you are a couple wanting a romantic trip, or a group on an adults getaway then I would recommend staying elsewhere. The location is great and the staff were extremely helpful but I think the hotel needs to invest in a more comprehensive refurbishment to justify the prices. Happy to pay the price but value for money simply isn't there.

Lovely hotel on the quiet part of the island
The hotel staff are very friendly and are always available. The animation/entertainment was not as professional in some other hotels I've been in (including the Maryland next door) but that was not a priority for us anyway. We had an amazing view of the sea from our balcony which wax not part of my booking. I think all the rooms have a sea view which is nice. The room was clean and had air conditioning. It also was tastefully furnished, roomy and had a nice plasma tv on the wall. We love this part of the island which is why we opted to stay in the Mgjorn area. If you are looking to be nearer to the action you should look to stay around Ea Pujols. The picture I added is the view from our balcony.

I booked bungalow for 4 nights but we left after the 2nd night coz we couldn't sleep. The hotel has a private access to a beach which is ok,very far from local shops&night hangout area.The bungalow looks super nice on the pics but there was a major problem with the beds, they were spring old beds with very thin pillows.I had the worst neck pain ever and i could not sleep at all the first nite. My husband ended up with stiffed neck and could not move his head for 5 days. We had to leave and we were declined a refund and offered a $100 credit which we havent received yet. The customer service was the worst part, no doubt-10. We were charged for a phone call that they made on our behalf to at the front desk but it was supposed to be a courtesy phone call, when you check in they don't tell you how to call reception or the spa, they didn't give you a map of the hotel and they don't explain whats included or not,they don't even bring u ice to the room.They also charged me 350 euros when I arrived coz i requested a crib.We were all having dinner at the hotel restaurant- all the family sat, with the self served dinner on the table- and suddenly a server approached us &started bombarding us with lot of questions which was rude in my opinion,so we asked the restaurant manager for a different server. She replied to us:"you guys can move to another table if you don't like the service" of course this lady refused to provide her name but she had very short brown hair

Great stay and would re-book
Great place and service. Loved just about everything. The list of minor pet peeves: beds a bit too firm (and I like firm) - they brought softer mattress toppers after we asked, room and safe used physical keys (at least in the bungalows we were in) - pain to drag around. Note: the sea in front of the hotel had a lot of jellyfish when we there. We hoped on a scooter and drove 5 minutes away (other side) and zero jellyfish on that side.
