“Real Ibiza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

I have stayed at Ocean Drive a couple of times with friends once in 2011 and once in 2012 and both times have been fantastic. The hotel staff are what really makes this place they are so lovely and welcoming. Once we arrived really early in the morning and they already had a room ready for us and let us check in.

The breakfast food is lovely a great start to the day. The rooms are a good size and are done very tastefully with great views. Lovely restaurants over the road too.

The Ocean Drive smart cars are great which you can hire for a low fee and go exploring around the island for the day. Otherwise they have a driver with a nice big BMW there too who can drop you off at bars/clubs/restaurants. All at a very reasonable price.

Though Ocean Drive is a very nice hotel one can't escape from the impression that it used to be a place with much more character than it is now. Ocean Drive became a "Design Hotel" not long ago. Everything is nice and sleek but for instance the beautiful pink marble floors are gone due to a designer who prefers carpet everywhere. Too bad the marble had a function: it provides coolness during the hot summers of Ibiza (and it's very beautful, too!)

Other than that it's OK, my room was around 300 euro which seems a little pricey even though it was still high season. Staff was kind and helpful but not beyond what you would expect from a good hotel.

The room was a little small but overlooking the bay. If you need wireless internet, ask for a room closer to the middle of the building as mine at the far end of the corridor was out of reach of the network.

One more detail: there is no iron / ironing board in the room and for the entire hotel there are only two available so I had to wait and could use it only for half an hour!

Stayed here for one night as a base before moving on. The staff were helpful and friendly, the facilities very good.

Parking a bit chaotic, but this isn't particularly out of the ordinary for Spain

Room was tiny - at the price, this was a bit galling, but I can understand why the price was so high given it's Ibiza in August.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms a very pokey - literally only just enough room for a double and sliding doors for...

I've stayed at this hotel for business numerous times. The rooms are very clean and modern. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. Guess this is also because it's not a big tourist hotel. Always had a good rest; no noise from people in the hotel or on the street.

Right across the street is a very good Italian restaurant, which has amazing food.

The only drawback is the internet. It is not very fast and it's hard to connect when you are on the top floors.

Rooms are small but well decorated and very clean, good location if you want walking distance into ibiza town at night (about 10-15 mins walk) yet far enough out to be peaceful. Staff were friendly and helpful.
If this hotel had been £150 per night my rating would have been better but at more than double that it is expensive.

The ocean drive is a small hotel over looking botanic marina in Ibiza. The staff are friendly and helpful. I won't recommend the hotel to families.,but it is ideal for individuals and couples.It is idealy located next to the marina,caffes,restaurants and clubs.

We just spent the weekend at Hotel Ocean Drive (mid-May) and completely enjoyed it. It's a cool (but not slick) place with a really warm heart. Without exception, the people who we met that work there: reception, bar, restaurant, maids, were outgoing, helpful and cheerful.

I think the location of Hotel Ocean Drive is a huge plus! The little marina across the way is great (we ate at Osteria Panino one night and really enjoyed it). I like that there's just a bit of distance (walkable) between me and the pulsing night life on the island. Although please note that we didn't travel during the high season so, the conditions at/near the hotel could be radically different in July/August.

We had a balcony overlooking the little marina (we were upgraded upon check-in: lovely touch). We had drinks and a good salad sent up by room service. It was also delightful to wake up and chill for a bit in the lovely weather before tackling the day.

The next time we come back to Ibiza, we will definitely stay at Hotel Ocean Drive.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony. It's really lovely.
