“Excellent location and view of the beach, just needs updating!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

The Ros Apartments are situated at the end of the promenade in Santa Eulalia and short stroll to the beach. All of the rooms face onto the ocean so if you are up early enough you will see some wonderful sunrises. Unfortunately there is no air conditioning but a small portable unit is provided which you can take turns using. The road outside the apartments is very noisy during the night if you try to leave the windows open. You can hear everything from dogs barking to bin lorries/coaches/cars/motorbikes etc. zooming up and down which could be a problem if you are a light sleeper. It seems to go quiet between about 4am and 6am until a cockrel crows and that starts the dogs off barking. The rooms are spotless but very dated. There is a maid service every two days where they provide fresh towels and sheets. Monica is the most friendly and helpful person and can direct you to the supermarket etc. if you want to stock up the fridge. The pool area is small but adequate although could also do with an update. We never had any problems finding a lounger, there was always plenty to go around, even if the usual suspects still rush down at 9am to lay out their towels! The umbrellas were looking a bit shabby as we're some of the sun loungers. The ladder into the pool was broken which was a little dangerous. The water in the pool stains your swimwear yellow which is very bizarre! The apartment we had (205) was a good size with plenty of room for a family of five to spread out and relax with a balcony area with space for a table and four chairs. I didn't bother to use the two ring hob or microwave but the fridge, toaster and kettle were enough for us to make breakfast and lunch and then eat out for dinner. There is some noise from the tiled flooring (clicking heels, chairs scraped across the floor) but that is to be expected in a building of this type. There is a games room with air hockey and two pool tables but you can't actually play a game because the tables are too close together and too close to the wall! I won't be rushing back any time soon but then again I wouldn't stay anywhere else in the resort.

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean but best views will be from higher floors (2nd and 3rd) - top floor rooms w...

It was our first time in Ibiza and feeling some apprehension about the "Party Isle", but when we got there it was brilliant. We were delighted with the area and the Ros Appartments. We wanted a quiet place, no rowdy entertainment and near to the beach. We got all those things!

We have young three kids, which is often a problem when travelling, but they set up a little bed for our youngest so all three could be together in one room.

Every room faces the sea and all have a balcony. It was spotlessly clean (if a little dated), with regular visits throughout the week to replace towels etc. The little kitchen was everything we needed, with a fridge, kettle, toaster, microwave and two-ring hob. The beds were comfy and the shower nice and powerful with no problems with hot water.

Small fee to use the room safe. No air conditioning, but there was a fan in the room. The temperature was spot on when we were there, so no problem about the heat. The building is nicely designed to stay pretty cool if you keep your shutters closed.

Some other reviewers have said about the noise, but at the time we went (last week in May), it was very quiet. There was some entertainment down the road a couple of evenings, but that was quiet by 10:30, and if we shut the door from the balcony, it was barely audible.

The staff are fantastic. We met some folk by the pool who have been coming back for 25 years, and I can see why. We will go back again!

Room Tip: Has three floors. Highest floors have a smaller balcony. We stayed on the top - room 303, and the ba...

We've been staying here on and off for the last 20 years - and never been disappointed. The apt block is set back slightly from the beach and all the upper floors have glorious views. The 5 one-bed appts are all on the ground floor - 3 front facing, 2 rear facing. The 18 two-bed appts are on the next 3 floors - all front facing. The appts themselves are very generously sized and very comfortable. A good sized kitchen with 2 rings, microwave, toaster and kettle (no oven).
There is a lovely pool area with plenty of sunbeds - and no-one bothers putting towels on sunbeds to reserve them - there's no need, it's all too relaxed for that! The snack bar downstairs is exactly that - snacks. There are plenty of restaurants nearby so there are loads of options if you don't fancy cooking. If you do want to cook there is a large Eroski supermarket 5 minutes walk away. Maid service is every other day.
Very comfortable relaxing apartments in a beautiful location.

We recently stayed at the Ros Apartments and where very happy with what we found, perfectly situated, literally a few steps to the beach, it was clean, everyone was friendly especially Monique , all rooms have the most beautiful sea view, the pool area was clean too with plenty of sunbeds, would definitely recommend these apartments, a great find.

Well actually the area is Santa Eulalia is a must stay for anyone wanting to see the beautiful island of Ibiza and not the wild, young clubtastic side the island is unfortunately reputed for. This is the place where the stars of the glamourous 50's and 60's first started to visit and buy homes including Elizabeth Taylor. It has a fantastic esplanade with spotless streets and cafes and restaurants galore all reasonable prices (for Ibiza that is- I found it had costs more like London where as I have been to the canaries for the past few years and the meals were half the price). The beaches are fine sand and the sea a bright blue turquoise. As for the Apartments Ros, well there are plenty of positives, it is a small block, a quarter of the size of most of the others and the location is 5 minutes walk from 3 large supermarkets, 1 minute from the beach and the start of the seafront walk with all the amenities, there's a pool with ample sunbeds around it if your quick enough in the morning to claim yours. The manager seems a nice bloke and has good intensions and the barmaid/receptionist is kind and helpful, both having a decent grasp of English. The 1 bed apartments are all on the ground floor with only 2 bed apartments on the upper floors. The rooms are quite dated and have no TV but are exceptionally clean and a decent size and for me they all have a bath which i love to indulge in on holiday and so many places don't. The biggest downside is the fact that the rooms are spanish style tiled floors and so every step, chair scrape, even voices are amplified by 10 and can wake you up anytime of the night, also the bin men seem to come anytime from midnight to 2 am and are not shy of slamming the bins down.

Ros apartments / Apartmentos Ros are situated at the 'river' end of Santa Eulalia, set slightly back from the beach they are opposite Orquida and Riomar and behind Marsol Apartments. The beach is 25 meters to the front and to the rear there are residential apartments,further to the rear towards the bus station is a large Eskopi supermarket (5 mins walk).

All 2 bedroom apartments are front facing - beware if you book through Direct holidays/Thomas Cook as all 1 bed apartments (there are 4 of them) are on the ground floor 96 / 97 are to the front level with the walkway with tiny balconies and little view. 98 / 99 are to the rear and face onto the wall of the residential gardens - there is no garden view as suggested by Thomas Cook as the courtyard terrace is slightly below ground level and wall and hedge obscure any view, you do however get the residents pool noise. The rear rooms do get afternoon sun whilst the front of the building gets no sun after noon.

The lower apartments are all very noisy, there is a gas pumping station to the rear and this makes a constant hum, however this is preferential to the lower front apartments as they suffer from street noise and the comings and goings of guests. The bar is also located to the front. Lower floor apartments have a metal gate to secure the patio doors, however there did not appear to be any security issues as the owner is very attentive.

Ask for top floor to reduce 'surround sound'. At the time of staying there was a fault with the fire alarm - it went off 3 consecutive nights at 4am. It was however rectified before we left.

The apartments are basic but provide everything you need to prepare meals. The beds are tired and the maids keep everything very clean and tidy.

The pool area is nice but again the sunbeds are tired and broken.

There is no building work going on as suggested in early reviews.

Room Tip: Ask for high floor. Avoid 1 bed apartments - if you must stay in 1 bed ask for rear as it is sunny...

I took a trip to Ibiza for the first time, having not visited Europe for a good few years and was pleasantly surprised, not only by the ease of getting out Apartment (even though we arrived in the early hours of the morning, in the pouring rain) and then the quality of the accommodation. We were on the first floor, which gave us a huge balcony, two lovely sized rooms and a good living area. The apartment may have been a little cramped if we had 6 people there, but you don’t spend that long at the place so it wouldn’t matter. It was nice to have small kitchen to cook if we wanted and although it is quite expensive to get taxis around the Island (buses often don’t go direct to the clubby areas) we really appreciated staying here, where it was safe and clean and always a space around the pool. Would stay in these apartments again and in Santa Eulalia, though the town is quite quiet and more orientated around families, but you can go to the more clubby areas at night so perfect world!
