“Truly an oasis and home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

In one phrase: Can Sastre, and in particular owners John and Michi, made our Ibiza vacation truly remarkable. From the very first phone call, to John meeting us out front to welcome and guide us down the private driveway and the glass of cava that welcomed us at the idyllic bar by the pool we felt at home even before we saw our perfect accommodations! Can Sastre's central location allowed us to explore all corners of the island but we were happy to "come home" each afternoon and evening to take a siesta, read by the pool and "hang out" with our most gracious and enjoyable hosts each day. In fact, upon our return from Formentera we asked if we could stop by and visit with John and Michi once more before leaving this magical island. We applaud Michi's culinary skills, John's choice in music and most of all to their seemingly effortless manner in making us feel so welcome. We will most definitely return to Can Sastre!

Room Tip: We were fortunate to have the casita which is set aside from the main house and incredibly private...

I stayed in Can Sastre one week with my boyfriend and it was one of the best accomodations I have ever been. The attention to detail in every room, the great breakfast (all home made and eco), the dinners next to the pool, and of course the great guest service and careful attention of Miki and John, the hosts, makes you feel at home and very comfortable.

Ibiza was only meant to be a quick stopover on the way to Formentera, but
staying with John and Michi made this the highlight of our holiday, and
impossible to live up to by any hotel in Formentera! Personal touches,
personal service, friendliness, total availability (they even gave us a
lift to the Ferry and posted back an item we forgot!) are some of the
quality of this place. Just an episode that defined the whole stay: Michi
and John both welcomed us open arms at 4am when we arrived at Can Sastre
from the airport, and we had a few bears and a good chat. From then on we
reallyt felt we were staying with Friends, and the key word was: Just
relax: this is your holiday, and you should not be adapting to us, but you
should be able to do anything you want to do it when you want to do it:
this is my idea of a real holiday!

What started out as a work trip at the airport quickly became a holiday once we arrived at Can Sastre. It's pure paradise! The rooms are amazing and unique, with the most comfortable beds and fantastic bathrooms. Every detail is thought of and the setting is truely idylic. John and Michi are the most wonderful hosts you could ever wish for....warm, welcoming, generous and as for Michi's cooking...it's rustic, hearty and absolutely delicious, the homemade orange marmalade is a breakfast must. I really do feel like we've known one another for years. We stayed up chatting every evening and it's clearly evident that their home is your home.
I've been to Ibiza many times but John and Michi have shown me a side to this island that I've never seen before and that's why I didn't hesitate to re-book for the summer before I'd even packed to come home!!!!!! I've stayed in many fantastic places around the world but it's the small details and John and Michi's love for their guests that make Can Sastre impossible to beat!!!
Without a doubt....5 very huge stars!!!!!!!

Room Tip: The superior double suite has the most amazing outdoor bathroom.

This is a late review of our holiday at Can Sastre becouse my husband and I were there 3 mounths ago, for this reason what I'm going to say has bigger value....when you have just come back, everthing seems fantastic, but when you preserve such a beautiful remind after long time it means your stay has been extraordinary. By the time we reached Can Sastre, Jonh, Michi and the dogs welcomed us like we were friends since long time and their friendly and hospitable way made our vacation really special. Every morning Michi helped us in choosing place to go to, things we could not miss, restaurant and so on, but I have to say best restaurant is Can Sastre. Can Sastre is a cosy property, beautiful garden, spacious and charming rooms and bathrooms. The locations is perfect to reach every place. I would suggest everyone to go there to relax and enjoy Michi and John company, two people who knows how to make an holiday fantastic..... something rare in this days! I am sorry for my english! Thanks John and Michi We hope to see you soon! Emanuela and Francesco from Florence

John and Michi are fantastic hosts and lovely people - welcoming, generous, open, good company, interesting and really brilliant guides to Ibiza. We came to Can Sastre in need of relaxation and we found it. Michi's breakfasts and dinners were absolutely perfect and a real treat, John's wine was the perfect compliment and we really enjoyed our long dinners staying up late with them both enjoying the conversation and their excellent company. Can Sastre is a really beautiful, peaceful and relaxing place with fantastic hosts who make you feel like you're staying with your closest friends. That's a very rare thing in our experience and it's why Can Sastre rates as one of the loveliest holiday experiences we've had.Thank you John and Michi.
