I don't even know where to begin with this property... the best way to sum it up was "Why did we stay here!?" Especially considering how expensive this spot was!
For starters, the front desk was very hesitant to convert our dollars to local currency although they advertise that they are more than happy to do so. Like other reviewers have mentioned, the buffet was HORRIBLE!!
The beach was non-existent... it was more like a sea-grass bed with zero access to the water (extremely rocky too). The staffing at the bar(s) and restaurant were inefficient at best. We ended up spending our days at the Gecko about 1/2 a mile away due to their actual beach, better service and good food.
The beds at Insotel were so uncomfortable so we would go to the beach very early in the morning so we could sleep on the beach chairs (ha). Ah, can't forget to mention the thin walls (we were stuck between one room with a fighting couple and another with some loud lovers), which coupled with the beds meant no rest at all. If it hadn't been for the Gecko, the incredible Juan y Andreas restaurant and the other small towns on the island I would have hated my trip to Formentera.
Unless you like your resort to seem more like a cheesy cruise ship, avoid this property like the plague.
