Hidden amongst the trees, on the edge of the beach, this restaurant is the perfect place to have a delicious lunch in a perfect setting. It gets busy (understandably) at lunch but the waiters have a good queuing system. Food is delicious. You can hire sun loungers (not cheap - ranging from 60euros to 20 euros ish) but it's worth...

Enjoyed a lovely short stay here. The hotel occupies a glorious spot on the Formentor beach. The gardens are lovely, as are the restaurants where food and service is generally good. We had a double room with a sea view and the sea was visible! I have seen various comments about the hotel being tired and a bit run down....

As Edward says, there are lifts to all floors, but as he adds, access to the pool is not easy for the disabled - and I'm not sure whether there is access to toilets at the pool level without using stairs.

One thing I do know, however - that is that the staff will do all they can to help you - we have booked for the 4th time in June, and wouldn't have done so without the kind of support they give!

Buenas tardes Bárbara B,

Le agradezco su interés por nuestro hotel Barceló Formentor.

En relación con su consulta le informo que el régimen alimenticio máximo que comercializamos en este hotel es la Media Pensión, por tanto no contamos con la opción "all inclusive", aunque el hotel cuenta con diversas opciones en el hotel y la playa tanto para comer como para cenar.

Sin otro particular, quedamos a su disposición.

Atentamente

Dear Ashley,

Read my two posts about this place. My wife and family love it here but I must stress that the emphasis is on peace and relaxation - it has no pretensions to having a party vibe. Having said that, all my children, who are now in their 20s and 30s love it (as long as I am paying). My wife and I are booked in for the first week in September 2016. We choose this time as the Mediterranean is still warm for sea swimming (a swim around Formentor island is fantastic if you are adventurous) but it avoids the blistering heat of July and August in Mallorca and it is outside school holidays. Have a fantastic wedding and enjoy your European honeymoon.

Dear Ms. Carolyn,

Thank you for your interest in Barceló Formentor.

The prices for the Hotel guests for sunbeds are 40€ for two sundebs and one umbrella, and 60€ for a Balinese or double sunbed, those prices are per day. You don't need to hire one to lie on the beach, beach towels are provided by the Hotel on request.

As for the grocery shop, the nearest shop is at Puerto Pollença, 9 km away from the Hotel. At the Hotel we have a press corner and a small boutique shop.

The car rental can be done through the Hotel, the Front Office team is very helpful and would be happy to help you with that.

Please do not hesitate to get in contact with us for further questions.

I remain at your disposal.

Kind regards.
