Wonderful hotel right on the beach.

Posted Aug 1, 2017
Pros: see above
Cons: nothing. except maybe keep breakfast going til 11 since, when on vaca, we couldn't get up by 10!!! : )
Location: Other gorgeous beaches, SUP, bike ride, other lunch and dinner locales close to the hotel. Perfect!
We loved the hotel, staff, beach and other offerings. From massages to meals, all was perfect. Lots of people but not over crowded nor sleepy. Just right!

Just back from a couples break in Insotel Formentera Playa. Wonderful hotel right on beach front. Generous breakfast. Great rooms. The nicest hotel staff I've come across in a long time, every one of them always had a,smile on their face. Very quiet neighbourhood however this was just what the doctor ordered literally! Great beach bar for watching the sunsets further up along the boardwalk. Beautiful chilled island. Hopefully we will be back one day!

Great location...

Posted Sep 29, 2014
Pros: The location of the hotel is perfect for the beach!
Cons: FREE Wifi is a must at this hotel, 9 Euros a day for the regular hotel people is a bit of a negative for me, Gecko offer free wifi as does Lucky Bar!
Location: The island is small, so visit Es Pujols and eat at Tahiti Beach or Bosacolino, or go to Pilar de la Mola for the hippy market.
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...

Nice hotel by the beach

Fantastic spread for breakfast. Noisy shows in the evening. All in all not a bad hotel. I would stay there again.

Smelly pool and useless front desk

Posted Aug 7, 2014
This hotel was a real let down. From the outset our experience was problematic. The pool area where you lounge smells like excrement indicating drains haven't been cleaned for a considerable time. The buffet breakfast has so many cut corners clearly to save costs from the overripe fruit, cheap cold cuts, tasteless pancakes and some horrible bacon substitute and canned cooked mushrooms. Honestly the only edible things were the cereal and cakes. There is no free wifi nor do the computers offering internet work to a satisfactory level or just don't work. The front desk staff were absolutely useless. They didn't seem to care all the vending machines didn't work and when we asked where we cld buy a phone recharger he answered " everything is closed u won't find one" yet we headed into town to ask a local who told us where to go and we found one! Also whilst the rooms are lovely and well maintained it's very hard to nap as since the floors are tiled you can hear the constant sound of wood benches and stools being dragged along the floor from the other rooms. From morning to night every 5 seconds is the awful sounds of stools being dragged! Ear drums were in pain! Honestly for the price we paid you are better going somewhere more basic but at least with quality breakfast, friendly and helpful staff and a clean pool without a poo smell!

Great hotel experience

If you want a relaxed environment where to enjoy your holiday (especially if you have young kids, Insotel Formentera Playa is the place for you. Only thing I would change is wifi access, we paid for a week's wifi (€28) but you could only connect one device at a time. I'd say at least 2 is the minimum.
