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.
