“Deserves more than 2 stars”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Me and my friend (both 21) stayed here the first week of September. We were aware it was a 2 star hotel but the reviews all seemed good so we thought it'd be fine. We arrived before 12 midday so couldn't go straight to our room which was fine, it's the same anywhere you go usually. So we left our bags beside reception and went to gather our bearings. If you leave out the back entrance and onto the beach side there are plenty of nearby bars and cafes as well as ocean beach club being minutes away. Out the front of the hotel there are plenty of supermarkets where you can get bottled water and snacks etc.

The reception staff are all lovely and help you out wherever they possibly can. They encourage you to leave your hotel room keys with them whenever you go out which is a great idea for added security. There is always someone sat waiting to greet you.

The bar staff are also lovely, small coke is 2 euros, sell cans of drink in fridges and ice creams. Personally I thought they were overpriced, a can was 2.10 at the hotel compared to 1.10 in the shops! Same applied with ice creams.

We were thankful to be half board as it meant we got out to try different cafes each day. However after visiting a little cafe along the beach front called the orange corner we were swayed to eat there everyday!! It's about a 5/10 walk away just after ibiza rocks cafe and it was cheap, calm, tasty and the staff were attentive. I never spent more than 10 euros for lunch everyday and I was always happy. Give it a chance just once if you can.

The hotel meals are average but for 2 star definitely better than anticipated. The man that seats you is bizarre he gets very panicky if you don't sit in the same seats each meal.

The pool in my opinion is small and cramped. There are bare minimum loungers and all are saved by 9 in the morning despite the hotel asking you not to reserve them. They are also so close to the edge of the pool that there is nowhere to walk, people were bombing in the pool and getting everyone soaked.

The beach is perfectly close, I can't complain about it. Sea is calm, loungers cost 5 euros to rent, never too noisy. The location of the hotel is fab, not too close to be in the middle of it all but not too far away to go as and when you please. Maximum of 20 minute walk I'd say up to the strip.

We stayed in room 340, third floor has beautiful sunset views, maid kept room clean, spacious enough for two females! Bath is tiny but not much of an issue, tap water barely ran but we just got on with it. Had couple of problems with noise but I also expected it seeing as we were in ibiza! The hotel are very hot on noise tolerance and one phone call down to reception and the noise will be stopped.

Wifi is shocking here, you can pay for faster connection but it seemed unfair. As did having to pay for aircon, even though we never needed it.

We booked through Thomas Cook and our rep was called Hannah Johnson, she's so lovely and helpful and just a good laugh. We booked a UV night out with her and had a great night, so worth doing if you're considering it. She's always available at some point in the day which is also nice to know.

Overall I would stay here again, 2 stars isn't enough for this place. My tips would simply be, get a room on third or fourth floor, don't be afraid to ask reception for help, eat at orange corner, spend your day on the beach not the pool and book a few nights with your reps! For what we paid it was worth it.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

This hotel provides great value. It is a little dated and fairly basic, but kept spotless. The rooms are large and, if you have a sea view room, you get a huge balcony with fantastic views over San Antonio beach.
The staff are extremely friendly and helpful.
The pool is quite small, but nice to be right on the front, and has the sun on it all afternoon unlike others nearby that are behind the hotels.
The location of this hotel is great. It's far enough away from the west end that it isn't too rowdy and close to the fantastic beachfront bar De Tulp.
However, being right on the promenade means that you don't get a very peaceful night ... be prepared for quite a lot of noise, both inside and outside the hotel.
I'll definitely stay here again as your guaranteed a clean, comfortable room with a friendly welcome.

I am 21 and stayed in the Ses Savines hotel with two other friends from the 12th - 19th August 2013. For this hotel you get what you pay for!

Food - The buffet food was good quality however not a lot of choice, and the lay out of the food meant that you were queuing out of the restaurant door for your food sometimes! But there is a restaurant / cafe connected to the hotel by the beach which has excellent food really well priced - you can get omelettes, pizza, sandwiches, all sorts - I recommend the cheesy chips though!!

Rooms - The rooms were basic but clean, there was no air conditioning available for our room, however some rooms did have the facilities for air con and it was priced at around £3 per day which is very reasonable!! The balconies were also huge!

Pool Area - This was probably where the hotel was let down, there was no space at all round the pool, all of the sunbeds were crammed together and there was only about 30 - so you stood no chance unless you are prepared to get up at 5am! However, the hotel is right on the beach and the beach itself and sea are one of the best I have seen, and you can rent a sunbed for a day for 5 euros which we did.

Location - Right in prime location for those who want to go out, it is about 100 meters from Ocean Club Ibiza and 10 metres away from the first few bars! To walk to Es Paradise, Eden and the strip it is about a 10-15 minute walk which is not bad at all! There is also a KFC and Pizza Hut right on the doorstep which stays open all night long - perfect for food on the way back from a night out! - However if you are planning on staying in this hotel with a family then I wouldn't really recommend it because it is noisy into the night and there are a lot of young groups that stay here.

Staff - The staff were all very nice and helpful, there is one receptionist who works overnight every night whom you have to hand your keys in to and collect them from - he keeps a close check on everything via CCTV cameras, so it is very safe.

Recommendations - Okay, so if it is your first time in Ibiza then the places I would recommend going to are - Ushuaia, we saw Avicci there are it was one of our best nights, Ocean Club Ibiza, and es paradise are also worth a trip!

BEWARE of people selling tickets on the beach though, you will be harassed if you are in a group, if anyone from PUSSYCAT BAR tries to sell you anything - don't buy!!!!!! They will rip you off!!!

Had 2 weeks at the Ses Savines in San Antonio bay in Ibiza,nice hotel 2 pools,food very good rooms cleaned every day.The only problem with this hotel id they do not have a courtesy room for you to freshen up before your journey home,tried book a room but was fully booked,and as my flight was 3-15 am sunday morning and you have to be out of your room at 12pm on the Saturday and there is no place to store your luggage only under the stairs where anyone one can mess with them,is not ideal.

Room Tip: if you go book a room with a sea view and book a courtesy room before you go,if you have a late flig...

We stayed at this hotel whilst we attended a wedding in the bay area. Without wanting to sound snobby we are fortunate these days to be able to stay in 4 or 5 star hotels, however we chose the 2 star Ses Savines because of the location, price and generally good reviews.
We loved our sea view room (412) and the staff were great, perhaps with the exception of the Maitre'd who decided to talk to me like I was one of the kids when I dared to butter my toast before returning to my table (I wanted to have beans on the toast without two trips to other end of dining room!)
Yes it can get noisy and yes there are groups of young people in the hotel - if you want to stay somewhere guaranteed to be quiet then don't stay near San Antonio Ibiza in August, go to Madeira or something!!! Don't come here then complain about young people - do your homework. Overall a very good budget hotel with staff that care about the guests.

My friend and i have just returned after 11ntes spent in Ses sevines - wen booking we asked for Sea View and we got it allright... maybe the Best room in the house - 410 - Large balcony, overlooks the pool and amazing sunsets. It can be a bit noisey overnte if u like to sleep with the doors open... avoid this as the moskitos are quick to come in n get a nibble.Think the aircon was chargeable but we never really asked, we just took the room as it came...
Maid Service Everyday.. rooms and infact the whole hotel was kept immaculate..always plenty of staff about..
Fresh towels everyday ... :)
Entertain was ok on most ntes... great drinks selection
Food - fair n plenty of it but not that tasty but definately worked to line our stomachs for a nte out on the town..

DEFINATELY STAY HERE IF RETURNING TO IBIZA.. NO COMPLAINTS ATALL... BRILL PLACE

Room Tip: Level 4 rooms with pool/sea view are just amazing but can be on the louder side x x worth the noise...

We have just returned from a week staying at this hotel. We were very wary about what to expect as the hotel had had some very bad reviews. As soon as we arrived we were asked if we wanted to be put in an apartment (instead of the family hotel room we had booked), free of charge as they said as we had kids it had a fridge etc. We were pleased with the apartment, it was lovely and big with a fantastic view of the sea. The only downside was that we were told by Thomas Cook that the hotel was in the bay of San Antonio when in fact it was closer to San Antonio centre then we thought so was quite noisey at night. The noise from the surrounding pubs and clubs didnt bother us too much, it was the noise from the other guests coming back late at night or early hours of the morning slamming doors or talking loudly in the corridors. Also i guess another downside was that there was no kids entertainment at night and there didnt seem many local places that we could take the kids to that werent full of drunk teenagers or loud banging music.
The food was good, not a huge variety but there was plenty of choice.
Overall we had a nice holiday but i wouldnt go back to the same resort again.

Room Tip: A seaview is definately worth it.
