“Value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for 5 nights with a group this year

After reading reviews on here I was slightly dreading staying in this hotel especially as it was only 2 star

I was pleasantly surprised!!! I could not believe it was only 2 star. The cleanliness was second
to none our room was changed everyday and there was never an issue around the hotel grounds.

We chose to go all inclusive as we thought it would be value for money but as we were always out doing something we only ate in the hotel twice, and to be honest the food was poor.... The only thing that let the hotel down!

The location was perfect for people looking to get away from central Bossa, but a short walk from Bora Bora. The hotel in itself was really quiet at night and I always managed a few hours sleep.

I would defiantly recommend this hotel to people looking for basic accomodation and value for money

Me and my boyfriend have just got back from a week here. The hotel is in a great location, close to Bora Bora Beach and a short walk either down the beach or through the main strip with bars and shops which leads you to Space and the fabulous Ushuaia beach hotel which is an amazing night out! There is a bus stop right outside the hotel that takes you to Ibiza Town in around 15-20 minutes and then from there you can get on another bus to take you to San Antonio. The buses run regularly so your never waiting too long and its cheaper than a taxi (each bus journey was 2.35 euros) The hotel is very clean and the cleaner comes in everyday to make the room up and gives you fresh towels. The pool is clean and pretty big so we were always able to get a sunbed in a spot we wanted. We went all inclusive and cannot complain about the food or drinks. There is always a choice between freshly cooked meat or fish and pasta and pizza. The drinks are 'proper' brands not rola cola. The all inclusive drinks are local however taste great and they do have the option to buy other drinks which weren't too expensive. The staff were all really friendly and helpful and it is a great hotel for couples or groups of friends.

Thank you very much Joanna S we really apreciate your good comments and score. as you say located in the heart of Playa den Bossa with shops, restaurants, cafés and bars in the surrounding area. At 1 kilometer away from famous nightly entertainment including Bora Bora and Space, Hotel Mare Nostrum is a good spot, ideally placed offering guests the opportunity to kick back relax and bask in the glorious sunshine in a warm friendly atmosphere. Two swimming pools placed in a landscaped terrace with hammocks, ping pong table, billiards, football table, tennis court, mini-club and gymnasium are some of the facilities available to our guests. The buffet-style restaurant serves international food with show cooking in an air-conditioned room, poolside snack bar where you can get a snack or a drink. 24 hours reception service with tourist information, excursions hire, club tickets, free service free luggage room with every reservation, safety boxes, cars and motorcycles rental. Thank you for choosing us for spending your holiday. We are looking forward to receive you in your next visit.

Arrived back yesterday from a week at the (night)mare nostrum now I no it's ibiza but this hotel was beyond the lowest expectations even for a 2star!! Where to begin, first of all don't bother putting in any kind of room requests we asked for a pool view and any floor just not the first floor well we got back alley view on the first floor!! The room stank of cigarettes and mould put the air con on as soon as we arrived and it was covered in black mould spots so couldn't use it again. No other rooms available as it was full so couldn't move! Beds were ridiculous!! On the day the towels were changed we were not given replacements had to ask at reception who gave me 1 towel!! Breakfast wasn't actually that bad same old everyday!! I'm so glad we wasn't all inclusive!! The location of the hotel was perfect right near everything and a few minutes to the beach bus stop and spar right outside!! As its ibiza do not expect any sleep at this hotel the hotel is full of young rowdy Italians the walls are paper thin and the doors aren't very secure at all!! Drugs seem to be allowed in this hotel as every night we was welcomed to te same smell from next door! Luggage room for departure day are not locked and people are in and out all the time shower rooms for departure day are vile no ventilation and the walls are covered in mould!! Think that covers everything if you really can't afford anything else and are going to book this hotel anyway then good luck and enjoy! If you can stretch your budget a little then definitely book elsewhere!!! Oh a plus the pools big :)

Room Tip: No point they don't listen anyway!!

We stayed here in July and we thought it was an average hotel for party people.
We are a young couple so it was fine for us but not suitable for families.
All inclusive was ok for drinks but food got boring after a while that we stopped eating in there. And the only snacks were cheese toasties and thats about it. Its only good for drinks to be honest. All inclusive drinks stop at 11pm but the bar closes at 1am.
Room's ok and simple and also clean. Maid cleaned our room everyday.
You need to go downstairs to put your towels on the sunbeds at 8/9am otherwise you won't get one.
Hotel overall is ok and average and I probably would stay again as its on spaces doorstep.

I keep coming back to this great hotel as it suits me and my friends perfectly.Great location with all important amenities close by.Always very happy with the staff,especially a lovely girl Barbara,who´s very helpful and friendly.Never had any problems concerning the housekeeping.Lovely swimming pool,though at times packed with no chance of getting a spot,but the beach isn´t far so we didn´t care.Lots to do around,lots of partying and fun.No problems with the cleanliness in the hotel and around.Some very nice and not too pricey restaurants near walking distance from the hotel.All in all,i would reccommend this place to stay in and rate it as a very pleasant hotel with all you need to spend a great holiday on Ibiza.

Ideal for a stay in Playa d'en Bossa, far enough away from all the noise, yet not to far to walk into it. Clean rooms, friendly staff, food ok for 2 star. Pool lacked daytime music, but lovely and clean. Would recommend this hotel for anyone who wants budget all inclusive
