“Really poor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Apart from the hotel being quite clean it really had nothing going from it.

My room looked straight into a residential building (perhaps 3-4 meters away) so I could share the neighbours evening at home as if i was with them, smelling their cooking, sharing their conversations etc

Rooms are really basic.

Staff not friendly or helpful.

Breakfast is just about OK but in dark restaurant with miserable staff.

Good thing there is a big parking lot next door for your car.

Room Tip: Probably ask for a room facing car park!

This hotel needs manteinance. Its clean but It starts to look a little bit worn out. The best of it is its location in the heart of Ibiza. But they should spend a little more redecorating rooms. Its restaurant isn't one to mention. A bit costly for what you get. And pillows are hard as rocks.

The Royal Plaza is a short distance from downtown Ibiza Town and it is easy to find. When I checked in, the guy at the front desk was professional but far from courteous. It was clear that I was a 'second-class' client as I had booked my room through an online discount booking site. The 5th floor room they originally gave me had no wifi signal so I asked to be moved to anotherroom. They consented and moved me to the second floor where the signal was no better. Both of the rooms were small, even by European standards and had no character whatsoever. The bed was ok and the bathroom was clean but there was nothing noteable about either. Good thing there is lots to do outside of your room in Ibiza. At the end of the day, I would not stay here again nor would I recommend it.

The hotel is in a perfect position and the rooms are nice. Staff is good, very efficient. I like a lot the swimming pool on the roof. Price is ok if compared to other solutions. This hotle is a good choice to stay in the island

We had a two week stay at The Royal Plaza in September 2012. We were a bit apprehensive about staying at this hotel, however it turns out we had no need: handy location convenient for Old Town; friendly and attentive staff; value rooms (no double bed, two singles); relaxed atmosphere at roof top pool.
Overall excellent value.
The staff went the extra mile in every sense: bar/pool staff especially, notably Esther with a beautiful smile.
Highly recommended for all ages, would definitely stay here again.
The only negative: daily charge of €3.50 for safe key in room. This should be free.

Definitely a little more refinement than the others , friendly helpful staff , clean rooms and not cramped , good size balcony and amazing roof terrace for chilling out ! Would stay here again in the future, well located for clubs and pubs , but far enough away not to hear them !

After reading the varying reviews of the this hotel on Tripadvisor we decided to make quite a late booking to this hotel as it was reasonable priced, in a great location and seemed to have fairly average/ good reviews. After spending a week here I feel it necessary to say that actually the hotel is lovely, the staff are super friendly and that I would recommended it to anyone I knew who was going to Ibiza.

From the reviews and pictures shown we were expecting a sort of Premier Inn style hotel, this is not the case. The style of the hotel may not be super modern but it is all in great condition, perfectly cleaned and includes great facilities. On arrivial we were offered and upgrade to a King Size room free of charge, though we had a side view room we could still see the main town from our balcony. The rooftop pool area is a great place to sit and relax and the pool is much bigger than it looks in the photos. The location is fab for getting into the main town, it is about 10 mins walk away from the marina and means you are out of the noise. Staff were really helpful with directing us to specfic places we wanted to go to and ordering taxis when needed.

Overall this was a great hotel which I would really recommend. The hotel offered everything we wanted and was in a great location without some of the ridiculous Ibiza price tags. Please ignore any comments about rude staff, they are lovely and went out of their way to be helpful to us, especially the fantastic lady on the pool bar.

Room Tip: If its in your price range go for the King size room as the extra space was lovely. If you want a to...
