“Not for the children”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

Primarily an hotel for adults (late teens upwards, although not I suspect a location of choice for the younger age group). Our stay was on HB basis with no shortage of food from which to choose. Whilst there was some variety in choice of dinners there was a degree of repetition. The occasional themed dinner wouldn't go amiss. Breakfast was mainly of English fare with cereal, fruit (fresh and tinned), bacon and eggs etc. Also cheeses, cold meat and pastries.

The hotel is nicely located on the edge of town (well worth taking 5-10 minute walk to shops and restaurants) adjacent to a small (not sandy) beach which is fine for snorkelling. Reasonable size hotel pool (not heavily used) and two hot tubs. The pool-side bar serves snacks but are a little disappointing and, as with some of the drinks, a little on the pricey side. The staff throughout the hotel were extremely efficient and pleasant.

Evening entertainment is of variable standards but over the course of a week there is usually something for everyone to enjoy. The resident tour company reps work tirelessly to put on shows and deliver day-time activities.

Overall a very pleasant location for a relaxing holiday

Room Tip: Pool-side rooms will be noisier but get the sun in the afternoon/evening. Perhaps try to avoid groun...

First time in Ibiza- Santa Eulalia was lovely and so was this hotel. We went to look at the other hotels that we might have chosen and decided that this was in the best location- great views, short but interesting walk into town,shops, ferries etc.Gardens and pool area were very well maintained. There were always sunbeds if you wanted them - not that we did as there were too many other things to do!! Food was excellent - breakfast choices were probably the best we have ever had in Spain. Our room was large and well furnished with plenty of storage and spotlessly clean. All the staff were so helpful and friendly from the cleaners to the managers. We were very impressed when a fellow guest pointed out an area that was difficult for wheelchair users to access without assistance and within a day a small ramp was in place. A great holiday , a great resort and a great hotel. We will be back.

Room Tip: I would say front block overlooking the entrance in the hot weather then you get morning sun and sha...

This was our first visit to ibiza and the Ses Estaques. Stayed for 1 week and retured home on 2nd june 2012. We have travelled to many places in Europe and this is one of the best hotels my wife and I have visited. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful and we had an excellant superior room overlooking the sea .We had a 32" flat srceen TV wine and fruit on arrival along with bathrobes and slippers. The twin beds were very comfortable and we both slept well. The food was good and the Thomson entertainment team Kim and Alex are magnificant and in a class of their own. The area in flat making easy walking into the town of Sant Eularia which has a nice beach ,shops and bars. The entire holiday was very enjoyable and we will be returning again soon

Room Tip: Superior rooms at the end of the hotel overlooking the sea are best. We stayed in room 313. Room 113...

Once again we spent a lovely week at this hotel (26 May-2 June) - our 3rd visit. The management and staff - a special mention to the Bar staff! - are all very warm, kind and friendly and make your stay special.

Remember that this is a 3-star hotel but for cleanliness, friendliness, location, food & staff, it can put some 5-stars to shame - as we have experienced!

No problems at all with sun beds, although my husband and I loved the little cove a few steps away at Ses Savines for sunbathing among the pine trees - beautiful!

We met some lovely people and hope to meet up with them again as we will be returning next year! Once again, thank you all at Ses Estaques for a wonderful holiday.

1st time st this hotel - it won't be the last! We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this holiday. All hotel staff very friendly, the food was excellent, with good choices. Our room was always clean and tidy, as was the whole hotel complex. Nice swimming pool, with an excellent bar area adjacent. We will be booking again for 2013.

Room Tip: Pay the extra and have a superior room

just back from the ses estaques, this was our second year at this very friendly hotel,from the reception team of Alex , isobella& monica to all the the waiters david,juan and cowe were meet by smiles and hugs.
this hotel prides itself on customer service and a " nothing is too much attitude" and they achive this by the bucket loads.
The rooms them self are basic but very clean and looked after by maids who take pride in there work. this hotel also gets my vote for the disabled.

Room Tip: speak to reception staff before you travel,they will help you.
