We got room 106 which was on the ground floor .........our balcony looked over the main road outside and all of the apartments above us used our balcony as an ash tray or generally as a bin ( condoms , sunglasses , towels etc ).
Also the bins for the hotel were right next to our room so this also attracted cockroaches - two of which i had the pleasure of meeting in our kitchen / cooking area.
Fair enough the room was cheap and was quiet enough for you to get a few hours sleep after crawling in at 7am.
Staff were helpful - was advised 3 times to keep our patio door locked at all times and to get a safe due to break in's.
If you're looking at nothing but a cheap room then stay here - personally I wont be back - you can get much much better hotels than this for the same or a little more in price.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the top floor - if any

Booked this as a last minute holiday and chose this hotel purely on price.
First of all if you get the shuttle coach like we did (since there was only two of us arriving on that day so it was cheaper than a taxi) it drops you off right on the corner of the hotel unlike the girls before us who got dropped off on a main road and told to walk down some alley!! Don’t listen to the driver and go down the street on the left because you just walk all the way around the hotel before you hit reception! Walk towards David’s Restaurant and turn left, you’ll see a big sign and the pool through the fence.

Check-in was quick; they don’t take your passports from you just make copies. The safety deposit boxes are at reception and only cheap to rent, air con is free with just a 10 euro deposit for the remote. We got it for free since there was only one remote left for our model so it was constantly on in our room which suited us fine! You do need to check what model yours is in your room and go back down to reception. The staff were great and really friendly, might be a while before they serve you as they natter with the locals a lot! The hotel has two very good looking security guards at night! Not many hotels have this!! The night manager is so funny, gives you high fives when you stagger in and you have to have a great personality if you’re ginger for him to like you!! Hahaha! When we had to call our transfer 24 hours before departure the receptionist did this for us in Spanish so didn’t have to mess around with pay phones!

Now the room! Very large! But no sofa. The bathroom is big and has a bath, no hand held shower like other clubbing hotels! Yes there was a big rust spot in the bath that we originally thought was a cockroach but it was clean. Always had hot water. We did what other girls did and took the mirror off the bathroom wall and stood it on a table in the room as the light is awful and that’s the only mirror! Plenty of plug sockets. Noticed that the lads were put in rooms without balconies! They were ether on the ground floor with a patio or the pool facing rooms that just had a window. We were on the second floor with a great view facing the fancy dress shop! Did request a better view but nevermind. I think they only had 4 or 5 floors. Didn’t use the kitchen area apart from the fridge for the alcohol, you don’t get glasses so we bought plastic cups from the shop around the corner. Some plates, pots and pans and cutlery and two electric ring things and a sink. There was a table and two chairs and two plastic chairs on the balcony. Balcony door quite difficult to open and close but remember to close it as if you have neighbours they can climb over to your balcony quite easily!

The cleaners were fine and they came in and cleaned around you while you slept, all they do really is change the towels and leave, we were only there for 5 days so left the do not disturb sign on the door! They only woke us up once. We saw them clean the entire hotel, even taking windows out and thoroughly cleaned everywhere!

POOL BANTER! Unfortunately according to a couple we spoke to from Glasgow we missed all the nice people who were there the previous week and were stuck with slurring 17 year old Scottish teen lads who clearly needed some educating on shallow water means you might knock yourself out and the difference between a sun lounger and a lilo! They pissed off some of the girls who were sunbathing next to us by throwing cups at them (ha). But hey first holidays n’all!! Theres a life guard always on duty, everyone else around the pool were really nice, the London lads and the other Scottish lads were friendly and could actually make words with their mouths even when tanked up on the booze! One lad spent 500 euros in one night and had no idea how lol. The pool is big enough, shallow enough to sit in and chat; you can even have a drink in there. You can take your own non-alcoholic drink around the pool as long as it’s in a plastic bottle. The bar serves all day until 1am, get your alcohol during the day from there but any soft drinks just get from the shop literally around the corner. The food is a great hangover cure from there, Omlette and chips was only €3,50, Hot dog chips and coke was €6,50.

Leaving the hotel turn left and follow the sunset down to Cafe mambo! Place is packed so if you want a table (quite pricey but food was amazing) get there for about 7.30, sunset starts at around 8.30. There are usually some entertainers on the rocks as well, no sand in this area so get a spot on the wall or rocks by the sea. Careful though because we saw a guy smash his head open after stumbling backwards! If you turn right when leaving the hotel there an ok restaurant on the corner called David’s (we didn’t have great food there but saw some other peoples dishes and it looked a lot better than our pizza and “garlic” bread) and a curry restaurant across the road. Head straight down the road and you’ll hit the west end and the marina, loads more restaurants and Eden and Es Paradise is next to the bungee ride can’t miss it! People say Ibiza is expensive but I thought going out for a meal was the same as you’d pay in the UK.

18-30’s is a rip off “deal” if you’ve gone as part of that kinda thing. Charging €45 for entry into Eden when it was free to go in after 2am anyway (doesn't get busy until this time so pace yourself if you're anything like me!) and apparently included a “free bar” which was actually a euro a drink. Basically you pay for an expensive cheap t-shirt and a mini bar crawl with no free drinks or shots. As a lightweight I would never have spent more than €45 for drinks at the west-end. A rough guide to what you get is two vodka mixers and two cocktails each for €8. A pint of weedkiller or Jesus Juice is €10 and they’re just pure alcohol. Not everyone knows that to go to other big clubs you have to catch a coach and it can take 30-40 minutes to get there, most tickets offer a free coach there and its approx 3 euro for the bus back. Drinks in these places like Space, we went to see Fat Boy Slim it was 12 euro for a beer and 15 euro for vodka mixer (it was half a glass full and Absolute vodka) and its 8 euro for the tiniest bottle of water ever. Young people come and try and sell you tickets everywhere, by the pool and on the beach but they’re really friendly and give you unbiased info on what not to miss etc defiantly have a chat with a few of them on your first day!

Expect to pay 50-60 euros for the club tickets and packages. We paid 60 for a booze cruise, free coach and entry to Space which wasn’t bad as a Space ticket was 55 euros alone! If you go on the Pukka Up cruise you’ll get to see the sunset and great sites of the island but only on the Ibiza Rocks cruise can you jump off into the water. Careful as packages like this do try and catch you out as if you got to Space later than 11pm your wristband wouldn’t get you in!

Beach is awful, sea isn’t clean, go to Playa d’en Bossa beach, bora bora and there’s another one as well, you have to get a bus or taxi to these places but definitely worth a visit! The major clubs are based on the other side of the island anyway so apart from the West end, Ibiza Rocks hotel and two clubs I’m not sure why San Antonio is the party capital.

Think that’s everything, oh if you don’t choose this hotel you might be in one of many hotels that are in a maze of side streets, this includes the Ibiza Rocks hotel!

Been to San Antonio, for four years in a row, but first time staying at Central City. Must admit it wasn't quite as "Mental Central" as I excepted from reading the reviews but still fairly noisy all night, maybe this was down to other guests who were staying at the same time as us being slightly tamer than usual, or maybe I just expected worse! So basically if you are drunk (as you should be in San An) you will no doubt be the same as me and sleep through it!

So as for the rooms... I shared with my boyfriend, and his 2 friends shared another room. We had room 502 on the top floor (which may be why it didn't seem as noisy) and the other 2 boys had room 215 on the 2nd floor which was the most appauling room i have ever seen (was pretty glad it wasn't me and my boyfriend in this room or I would have probably hated every minute of it!) There room had a pathetic excuse for a shower, more like a drip! Electrical cables were just hanging out of their wall (not sure if they were live or not, didn't go for closer inspection!!)

The rooms come with air-conditioning which i must admit worked really well, and circulated the whole room! Great for straightening hair at night etc. for the girls!

The fridges in both rooms were decent size, but had mould and dirt round the outer rim, this didn't bother me much as it was just booze going in it anyway... If i had been planning to store food in it I defo wouldn't have! The maids left clean towels EVERY DAY!! which was great! but beds were only changed twice! and room wasnt swept the whole week.

Another thing, the locks on the room doors are very secure, almost too secure, because there was a certain 'nack' to unlocking the doors, i found it a struggle most times! Safes are available at the reception/bar area, i didn't bother with one but they were available!

Pool bar is reasonable priced, around 3 euros for a smirnoff ice/breezer and just over 1 euro for a bottle of water... food also available which i didn't try! The pool itself was not bad, pretty small but good enough... However the surrounding pool area was not!! The grass desperately needed watered as it was brown and crispy and basically just a sea of fag doubts! There was a lifeguard at the pool during its opening hours and great music coming from the pool bar! Spanish lady at reception was ok, she didn't speak much English, but English lady who worked during the days was rather rude and couldn't really be bothered when we asked her to phone for our transfers/store our cases for departure.

Great location too, just a few metres walk from the west end and beach!

All in all this was a pretty shabby hotel but what do you expect from San Antonio? Was ok to stay in for a cheap deal, but have defo stayed in better hotels in San An! Probably best suited for those Ibiza party people who dont mind where they rest their head!!

(This review is based on 3 males ages 21 and one female aged 22 from Scotland, staying between August 4th-11th 2012)

Room Tip: Ask for a higher room to avoid noise! All rooms have free air-conditioning so if not working when yo...

Expected this to be a dump due to the reviews but we were pleasantly surprised. Hotel is very basic but clean. Dont come here unless you are up for a laugh tho- there is noise at night when everyone comes back but this never bothered us as we were either out or passed out in bed and we definately weren't kept awake. Maids came too early for my liking but made the beds and gave us fresh towels etc and cleaned the floor. Location is excellent- very central and easy to find. There are computers with very cheap internet access. Safety deposit boxes were available cheaply- really recommend you get one as it gave us peace of mind knowing our passports and money were locked away safely. Pool could have been cleaner but it was still a good place to hang about during the day with our new friends. There is a bar serving food and booze til late quite cheaply. Our bathroom light broke one day and they fixed it immediately. Staff were very helpful and friendly, the wee spanish man maybe too much so but its all in good humour!! If you've come on a clubbing holiday you won't be disappointed- dont trust the bad reviews we had such a good time and we definately have standards!! Holiday of a lifetime :)

Room Tip: try not to stay on ground floor as you won;t feel as safe
