“Second visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Great hotel,not too large and on the beach. The pool is also great with glass walls so you can enjoy the scenery-not too busy with hotel loungers on the beach. Nice little cafe adjacent to the hotel for lunch!! Towels for hire at desk for 10 euro deposit.
We will return next year- the location really is heaven!
(Only problem its getting more expensive with refurbished rooms)

Room Tip: A sea view is a must-high floor

The hotel has had its bedrooms refurbished and are most impressive as a result. There are new water and air-conditioning sytems, too annd the owner (who introduced himself personally) has plans to continue improvements. The whole area has come along in leaps and bounds in my 20+ years experience and I only hope this 'hidden gem' as another reviewer has put it, doesn't get out of my reach! For this trip it was very, very reasonable.
Buffet breakfast and dinner are both good enough to stop you looking elsewhere and all the staff a very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect.

Room Tip: Look to the sea, of course!

The argos hotel is on the quiet talamanca area of abiza.The staff are courteous and helpful but don't bother you without being intrusive.It has recently been refurbished to a good standard and cleaned daily,curtesy toiletries and tv but only english news channels but as the area is so beautiful you shouldn't be in room for that long.The hotel offers b&b or half board which you swap dinner for lunch.It has an area of beach along side with sun beds an area you can just sit and watch all the people from the mooring boats come and go.You can also hand feed fish as the sea is shallow.We have been as a couple several times and recently took our three grown up daughters who really loved the area and hotel room they shared and even with three single beds was more than adequate.The hotel is frequented mainly by germans but of the older generation ,all in all for a quiet out of the way hotel it suited us for a relaxing break we were there in june 2012 for three weeks and did not want to come home and are already planning or next trip.It is a twenty minute walk from ibiza town or a short ferry ride so you can see everything and find transport to the rest of the island with no difficulties.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the sea cost more but have a great view but all rooms are of the same standard and if y...

Just returned after spending 9 night at the Hotel Argos. I was travelling wiyh my wife and 4 month old baby. Overall a great little hotel, staff were extremely nice, really child friendly, very keen to help out, extend check outs etc. Location is also great, very close to the marina, beach is nice but lots of sea weed and a boardwalk with plenty of strolls and afternoon beers. We had a sea view room on the 5th floor (501) and we had lovely morning sunshine overlooking Talamanca bay. If your looking for afternoon or evening sun this hotel is not for you as the majorirty of the rooms do not get sun.

Areas for improvement - would like to see more fresh fruit at the breakfast buffet. Other than that I could not fault the room, the hotel or the staff. Would return :)

I have seen some poor reviews on this hotel for service and I have to disagree. Although the hotel is geared up for Germans, the staff were friendly and the facilities and rooms were just fantastic.

It is worth paying that little extra for the sea view and it is breathtaking and entertaining. The views on the other side of the hotel are just of buildings and a few shops.

The location was perfect for us as we spent a few nights in clubs and these were all a short taxi ride away but further enough away not to hear a sound. Plus its only a 20 min walk to Ibiza Town which has everything you could need or want.

The breakfast was a little random as they don't do a good old fashioned English breakfast and serve German food but we improvised and made ourselves bacon sandwiches!

Don't be put off my the poor service comments and let this hotel pass you by. As long as you aren't bothered by the hotel catering for a more German market, you'll be just fine and have as much fun as we did.

We have been twice to the Argos hotel mainly for it's location which is right on the beach. The upmarket Botafoch marina is located just two minutes walk away. There are fabulous restaurants there but they can be pricey in high season. Ibiza town is around twenty minutes walk away for great nightlife for all ages. We will definitely be returning in the future.

Room Tip: Definitely opt for a sea view.

i stayed in this hotel in june 2011with my husband. we were on our honeymoon and the hotel was not at all upto a 4 star expectation. they did not have any tea coffee maker in the room and charged extra for sending hot water to the room. staff does not understand english properly. even the room was not anything great to be called a 4 star property. only good thing about the stay was the breakfast which was delicious. we heard so much about ibiza but were disappointed to reach there because the location is not great..its sad and boring.. if u are young and coming there for fun. u should find a hotel at a better location in san antonio. we started enjoying our trip only when we went to san antonio.
