We’ve just returned from a week at the Hotel Blanco, and I don’t think we could have picked a better hotel in Formentera! The whole place is fantastic. We had a very quick and helpful check in, followed by being accompanied to our room, with a running explanation of the hotel facilities. The room itself is beautifully laid out, with a decent amount of storage space, a fantastic walk in shower and a huge king size bed. We had a room at the back of the hotel, so there wasn’t much of a view, and our balcony didn’t get much sun, but given that the beach is only 5 minutes walk away, that wasn’t a real issue. The pool area is amazing, with plenty of sun beds (even taking into account the people who “reserve” a bed, then disappear for hours on end!) and a brilliant pool bar, open from 10am till late. The breakfast buffet was possibly one of the best I’ve seen - a huge range of cooked meats, fruit, fresh bread, pastries, cakes, savoury croissants and cereals, together with a live cooking station, doing eggs, omelettes and pancakes to order - if it is missing anything, it is some English Breakfast Tea, but the coffee more than made up for that 😀 Overall, the hotel is exceptionally well run, and all of the staff are excellent, but special mentions for the pool bar, particularly Pedro for making amazing cocktails and sangria, and Silvia for her excellent, always smiling service - Elo, Natalia and the other ladies in the restaurant, and Lucia on reception.
