First of all I went to Ibiza with two friends on a girls holiday during the middle of June, Ibiza is the place to choose! One of the best holidays I've had in a while of that sort. We booked to stay in the Bay as we didn't want to deal with the busyness of San Antonio during the day, however I presume during high season the Bay would be much the same. We booked with Thomas Cook and were with club 18-30, reps are lovely and good fun however remember you don't have to go along with their whole "deals" package for the week!
Personally I think the hotel/apartments has everything you need. The rooms and general decor are a bit outdated but it is clean and the staff are all very helpful and welcoming. The location is good, minutes walk from small supermarkets, a couple of bars (of which I would recommend Panffers, as it is good fun), and no longer than 200m walk to the closest beach. To get to San An you can get a water taxi for €2.50 or it is just 20/30minutes walk along the water front which is pleasant. The pool is great and has plenty of sun loungers as well as a bar, which also sells light bites and ice creams etc.
When you arrive be prepared to put down a €100 deposit for the room. During the week your room will get cleaned once or twice, it can depend, which is fine; just remember to try and catch the cleaners in the morning to get fresh towels. Also if you happen to run out of toilet paper before your room is cleaned just ask reception for some. For air con you have to pay a €10 deposit plus pay €3 per day for use, so a total of €31 of which €10 is returned at the end of your stay. During our stay the air con stopped working, just say to reception and they can fix it at a flick of a switch from the control box. To use the safe, similar to the air con, you need to pay a €10 deposit plus €3 per day. There is always someone working in reception, they don't let people go into the hotel who are not residents, especially in the evening. One night walking back to the hotel after being out a friend of mine got mugged just as we were turning onto the Cala de Bou, luckily a guy on the street got the bag back but you just need to keep an eye out, which isn't always easily after a drink or ten.
As you walk along to San An you'll come across a bar called Linekers, which I think is one of the best in San An. If you catch a PR outside they'll give you a decent drink offer and a free shot, was always busy. Outside is a nice terrace and inside more of a club feel. Clubs on the strip which I thought were pretty good were Hush, which is a bit upmarket but isn't expensive, Akwa, Play2 was alright, Plastik (which is near Linekers) and the list goes on...I would recommend going on the Sunset Cruise, offered on club 18-30, great start to a night! Food wise there are a couple of ok restaurants in the Bay - El Gaucho nearby the hotel always smelled lovely but we never managed to go. In San An I would recommend Tapas, which if you walk to towards Linekers and turn right, cross the road and walk down a sort of dirt track for 100m you get to it. Nice food, great service, wee bit pricey. Also for authentic Spanish Tapas I would recommend El Rincon de Pepe which is in the centre of San An, couple of streets away from the main strip/west end, near the taxi rank. Also, of a night you should walk round to sunset strip which is a good 15 min walk from the centre of San An, and have dinner in Cafe Mambo as the sun sets. Cafe Mambo is pretty expensive but it has decent food, great atmos and service, and a spectacular view. They always have good DJs playing and have pre-parties for the big clubs. Would be better to book ahead if you want to eat on the terrace. Or just head to sunset strip and watch the sunset down on the rocks/beach with drinks, loads of people do it every night. In terms of superclubs, Pacha is my favourite, amazing to be honest.
Anyway, the Sunshine Apartments are a good choice for a clubbing/busy yet also relaxing holiday!
