“Fabulous stay in Ibiza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

I traveled with a friend who had stayed in this hotel 2 years previous. It did not disappoint! The hotel staff and Thompson reps were fantastic, knowledgeable and friendly. Special shout-outs for Alex at reception, Josefina in the cafeteria, Jimmy the Thompson rep and Giancarlo the manager. It has a lovely family feeling in the staff. So nice to see that everyone enjoys the part they play. This was my first trip to Ibiza and I must say that staying in this hotel left me with a good feeling of the whole island. The minute we arrived to the hotel I was instantly relaxed.

When I travel I normally have a bout of stomach trouble adjusting to different water and food. Not once did I have a problem the whole week of staying in this hotel. This tells me just how clean and efficient it is.

There is something to be said for staying in a hotel with no children. It was quiet and yet still activities to participate in if you cared to do so.

A walk up the hill behind Ses Savines for a sunrise view is a must for early risers. Just beautiful.

I was very happy with my stay and would definitely come back with my husband.

Room Tip: If you are a night owl, then a room over the pool is great fun as well as a beautiful view of Santa...

I stayed at Catalonia ses Estaques on Ibiza for 3 weeks in late June to mid July 2014, having enjoyed a similar length stay a year earlier. The hotel and staff are every bit as good now as they were then. Director Giancarlo, and sub Director Isabel head up a wonderful team - from the first minute of arrival with a warm welcome at the front desk, to the Restaurant with it's great choice of tasty food and drink accompaniments, and superb staff, through to staff at all other levels - garden and outdoor, cleaning, bar staff etc.
My room had all of the things that I was seeking -a comfortable bed, good A/C, and quiet at night for much needed sleep.
Not surprisingly, this hotel is nearly always fully booked, with many guests returning year after year.
I was in Ibiza by myself for a full-on 3 week seminar, and didn't have much time to spend with other hotel guests, however I would like to mention that a number of people from England could not have been more friendly and open to conversing over dinner with a traveller from the other side of the world (i.e. Australia) - just another thing which I enjoy about this hotel.
Would I want to stay here again? Absolutely!!

We have stayed in this resort a number of times but the first time at the Ses Estaquates and have to say it gives value for money the meals are good as are the rooms which are spotless we found the staff to be very friendly eager to please.
We were able to get a sunbed at anytime of the day our favourite place being the garden as it was so peaceful also in the dining room we also got a table without any wait.
So in conclusion we would say its a great well run hotel with brilliant staff and will return again on our next visit.

Room Tip: For the quiet life ask for a room overlooking the tennis courts.

Just back from our second visit to Ses Estaques and had another fantastic holiday. The helpful staff, friendly guests and wonderful location were the main reasons we returned.
It's an idyllic spot with a really nice atmosphere throughout...just perfect for a relaxing holiday.

This year we had a poolside view after the tennis court view the year before. Definitely preferred the poolside as it was nice to have the option watch the entertainment from the balcony.

We felt the food was better this year, some more Spanish dishes and greater variety.

Already booked for next year!

This was my second visit to Ses Estaques and it was just wonderful. From the moment you arrive you are made to feel so welcome by the reception staff. Our room overlooked the pool and pool bar, views of the ocean and the marina and over to Puig de Missa. All comfortable and exceptionally clean. The restaurant was excellent, great choice of foods for breakfast and dinner, very friendly and helpful staff who no matter how busy, took time to talk to you. Yes the majority of guests have been there before and there is a very friendly, family atmosphere but there is no pressure on you to join in with anything, you just do you own thing. Jimmy the Thompson Rep was as fabulous as ever, his knowledge of the area and things to do is wonderful. Take the opportunity to eat at Ses Sevines, fabulous food and it is a beautiful place to sit and have a cocktail and watch the evening fall under the pine trees. There is something magical and special about Ses Estaques which I cannot put into words, I cannot wait to go there again. Huge thank you to everyone there for helping to make our holiday so fab, from Dulce who cleaned our room and tried out her English, Alex who is the font of all knowledge in Reception, Josephina in the restaurant and also to the Manager Giancarlo who takes time to speak to his guests and find out if everything is to their liking. Isabel who is just lovely and of course to Jimmy and the Thomson team who are there if you need them and not in your face. I truly love this place. We were two girls on holidays, in our 40's, without our men and we had just the most fabulous time so don't let it put you off that this is a Thomson Gold Hotel. It is just perfection.
Don't think about it, just book it - but leave room for us for next time.

We have just returned from our 3rd visit to Santa Eulalia but our first stay at the Ses Estaques and we were very impressed from start to finish. Thompson looked after us from arrival at the airport, through the flight and throughout our stay - the reps were very friendly and were available if necessary but if, like us, you want a quiet holiday then you are able to have this at this hotel. There are poolside games if that is want you want and great evening entertainment, the Four Tops were brilliant. If that is not your cup of tea then you can have a stroll around the Marina or visit the plentiful and amazing shops. There is so much to do at Santa Eulalia or go further afield, we caught a local bus at the station to San Antonio - only 2 Euros each way and only took about 20 mins. There you can see what the other side of the island gets up to!
Our room was on the 5th floor overlooking the pool, the entertainment went on until approx. midnight, which was fine by us, you can always shut your double glazed door blocking out the sound. We were overlooking the Marina and boat yard and I loved watching all that was going on there.
The staff at the hotel do go out of there way to help, always seem happy, our room was cleaned every day and was spotless, many thanks for this. Yes, we paid for a superior room, as it was our 30th wedding anniversary we felt we deserved the extras such as slippers, robe, fruit and wine. We found it very quiet , relaxing and tranquil , just what we wanted. We were aware that many quests return each year and were welcomed by the staff, which I thought was a lovely gesture.
Also, there was the inevitable placing of towels at 6.00am which we found thoroughly amusing, we certainly didn't get up at that hour on our holiday and always found plenty of free sunbeds, the gardens were our favourite as it was so quiet here, if you wanted a drink there is a drinks machine there or its only a short stroll to the bar or pool.
The only small complaint we had was not being able to cool bottles of water in the fridge, which was a minibar only - we have stayed in other hotels where there is this facility but it wouldn't stop us returning, the room we had was just lovely with a queen size bed, plenty of storage and fantastic views across the Marina.
All in all we had a wonderful stay and I would certainly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: Go for a higher floor for fantastic views

I have just returned from ses estaques and would not go back.I was ill for two days of my holiday with a bad stomach i was only there for a week.I would only rate it as a three star.Food not too bad quite a good choice,but not what im used to, I normally go to four or five star hotels not been in three star for many years.No one spoke to me the whole time I was there,I was travelling alone,majority of guests were returning guests and I found very clicky. A word of warning single rooms have no balcony which I was surprised at,when I asked to change my room they wanted 40 euros a day,I had aiready paid single room sup.
