If you want a quiet peaceful and relaxing holiday "avoid" staying in a front facing room. It is like being on the edge of a motorway only worse with the non stop noise of the traffic. Scooters in their hoards, heavy plant, buses.. I could go on but I am sure you get the picture. Not forgetting the street cleaner at 4.30 am complete with flashing light!
We travelled with Thomson who apparently only have 4 rooms available for booking so out of the 17 sea view rooms (I think this is what I counted) you will be very lucky to get one. We were so terribly disappointed and were unable to change even after lots of tearsMore

This is a comfortable family run two star Hostel with helpful and personal service. More home-from-home than holiday hotel. Everywhere is spotlessly clean. Itâs a bit quirky in places: why have a window with venetian blind between bathroom and bedroom? But that adds to the charm. The view across the lake is superb with some wonderful sunsets.
Breakfast and evening meal are of good quality and plentiful. No âFull Englishâ breakfast (you are in Spain) but a variety of cereals, bread, cheese, meat, etc plus cake and cava! The evening meal residents menu is good value and varied, could not fault it.
The location is great, near the port and some of the best beaches are 30-40 minutes walk away. The hostel is beside a sea filled lake with a small sandy beach. Really safe for paddlers like me, swimmers need to walk out a bit further.More
Beautiful views. Convenient for port. Booked based on high trip advisor rating but was disappointed. Rooms small. No luxuries. Breakfast was unimpressive and food poor quality. Some of the evening meals were poor. Some Staff not especially friendly. Rooms were clean. Balconies were small. Can't swim in sea outside its too shallow. Had to use it as a base to explore rest of island. More
What a find
Great little hostel great position just out side the port alongside the lagoon, good clean rooms, friendly polite staff good food and a fantastic location to unwind with a drink and watch the sun go down.More
Lovely hotel, great stop, loved formentera
Exceeded our expectations. Close and walkable from the ferry port. Warm welcome and very helpful reception staff. Our room was on the ground floor with a balcony to the side (not sea front). It was a bit on the small side but was perfectly adequate and had everything we needed. The common areas are lovely including the restaurant which we ate at twice. They do a cheaper menu from 7 to 9 for residents which is great value (especially after you've seen how expensive restaurants are on the island). We also ate from the standard menu and I was a little disappointed with my choice. Every Saturday they hold sunset emotions on the hotel beach/bar. They have a dj and cocktail bar on beach. We really loved the event and it was a great way to get to know other guests. The breakfast was great - lots of choice and good timings (I think it goes on until 11). Some of the staff in the bar restaurant could have been friendlier. There is a supermarket very close to the hotel as well as a bus stop and a variety of places to hire bikes. Overall a relaxing stay and we would definitely come back. Formentera is a beautiful island. There are some great restaurants (had an excellent pasta dish at the restaurant next door to the hotel - cafe del lago and an amazing meal at can Carlos in San Francesz). But it is an expensive island. We hired bicycles and explored the island which was fantastic. It's not far to bike to ses illetes and es pujous from the hotel and the route is peppered with a few bars to grab a sunset cocktail. The sunsets are amazing. More
