“History and class in Ibiza Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012 via mobile

This is a unique and fabulous hotel set at the top of the Dalt Villa hill. If you hire a car they give you a special pass which gets you through the Dalt Villa road barriers and allows you to park outside the cathedral at the top - very VIP. Our room (suite 8) was beautiful with a large outside terrace that had nice sun loungers, table and chairs and a mosaic outdoor tub and amazing views of the port of Ibiza. Staff are friendly but not pushy. You feel more like you are in a private home rather than a hotel. That said they do all the nice touches like a well stocked room bar, nice robes, good quality local herb toiletries in the bathroom and breakfast in your room, in our case of course on our lovely terrace. Heavenly. Would not consider staying anywhere else in Ibiza Town now, we've been spoilt. And the exercise we got walking up and down the steps of the old town meant that we didn't put on a single kilo in weight on our holiday, despite all that paella and tapas!

If you want flash stay in Ushuaia, Pacha or Ibiza Gran, if you want subtle class stay here. They won't mind me recommending the competition as they have none. We are over 30's clubbers and after a hard nights raving you want.... tranquility, a late breakfast and no hassle. Welcome to La Torre del Canonigo. I'm not telling you which is our favourite room as you'll book it!

We've stayed in truly the best in the Maldives, New York, Paris and London. If you thrive on survile staff go elsewhere, this is Ibiza.

You'll have to leave Dalt Villa for the clubs and bars as we do and the taxi's might not quite take you to the door so whip your heels off for the last 100m and look down on the harbour when you awake.

PS lots of lovely restaurants and a bar or 2 top side of the castle gates.

Room Tip: the best you can afford

I return to this hotel year after year. what i like is the lack of fuss and stuffiness. If i need anything i just have to ask and the staff (who are now like friends) always deliver.I met Ainara - new head of reception - for the first time this year and she is absolutely great - very funny but efficient and Sem brilliant and charming as always. These guys are not 'in your face' types, they may appear reserved but they are GOOD at what they do. Several well known and famous people return to the hotel year after year - and it is the discretion of the staff and lack of fuss and stuffiness which they value the most. I felt that the hotel this year was ready for redecoration and up - dating. I have been informed, on good authority, that come October the place is being totally gutted and transformed. Looks like the old place is going to be even more special.

Our recent holiday in Ibiza was meant to be a special one... but this was spoilt somewhat by the choice of hotel.

I pride myself on being able to find great hotels and often research thoroughly but this was the worst mistake I have made.

In 30 years of travelling this was probably the most disappointing hotel I have ever stayed in.

It is an expensive hotel so of course there was an expectation of some degree of luxury and also service. Apart from the Bose i-pod deck in the room there was minimal luxury and absolutely no service whatsoever.

First of all, the location of the hotel is a nightmare if you want a relaxing holiday. Very few, if any, of the taxis will bring you this far up in the old town. We had to walk quite often and it is a very strenuous walk in the Ibiza heat. The hotel's own vehicle had broken down and to compensate they had offered us a trip to the beach or a taxi to the airport. This never materialised. In fact, there was such confusion around ordering a taxi to the airport back to the airport that I had to walk with all my cases into the town as the taxi never turned up. I nearly missed my flight. I have since written to the hotel to ask them for an explanation and to express my disappointment and they haven't even bothered writing back to me.

This lack of service is typical of this hotel throughout.
- No help with cases on arrival
- Only one person ever present, often trying to do the breakfasts and reception at the same time
- A very poor breakfast of a couple of bread rolls and a doughnut: outrageous given the price of the room - if you want fruit or eggs you have to pay €10 or more extra
- Little service at breakfast
- No wifi in the rooms despite the website saying they have it
- No bar service to the terrace
- No response at reception when calling down

All in all, this is the most disappointing hotel experience I have had and would certainly not recommend this hotel to anyone.

I have written to the hotel and they had promised me a response from the owners but so far I have received nothing (over 2 weeks later). I even offered them some advice on how to improve the hotel as I work for a leading international tourist board but given the attitude of the hotel and the lack of attention to the customer I cannot see them implementing these very necessary changes.

Most TripAdvisor reviews do not reveal several important points about this hotel. First, and most importantly, this hotel is quite remote and inaccessible. Unlike all other Ibiza hotels,it is hundreds of meters up steep,dark and narrow cobblestone streets (really alleys) above the main Dalt Villa area (where the Hotel Mirador and restaurants are located). In transferring from another Ibiza hotel , it took us two hours to get a taxi ( four separate taxis refused to go to this hotel) and the one taxi that took us left us 150 meters below the hotel (you need to travel very light to stay at this hotel). The hotel supposedly has a van but it is often not available and the operator is quiet rude and difficult. At night (Ibiza is a very late night place), the last several hundred meters up to the hotel are dark and deserted, and one should expect to meet occasional prostitutes and undesireables. This is a very small hotel and run by amateurs. Generally one person is on call most of the time, but the front door is often locked at night and getting in can be an adventure. The hotel also refused to honor our Venere reservation, demanding three hundred euros (one hundred euros per night) more than the Venere booking. Service is not good. On arrival at 9:30 at night ( we had visited earlier in the day to seek assistance in getting a taxi and were refused), the beds were not made and there was not enough towels, and upon returning at 1:30 am , the beds were still not made ( we had to wake the night attendant to find bedding). The staff is typically unhelpful and generally has poor English language capacity. We have stayed at many small hotels throughout Europe, in London , Paris (de Buci), St. Remy (Chateau des Alpilles), Florence, Avignon, Aix, Cannes , Capri (La Flora), Venice, Roma, Sorrento, Santa Margarita, Barcelona etc. , and for its price, this hotel ( which is quite high) was the worst.

We had the suite with the bath outside on the terrace. Very very nice to stay there. Our nights were long, so during the day it was very comfortable to relax there. Also very very nice people of the hotel, really great staff!!

I stayed with my two teenage daughters. On arrival - despite being 2.00 in the morning! - the staff were welcoming and helpful. The room we had booked we knew had no view but was beautifully presented with a very large modern bathroom. The views from the hotel are stunning and we took breakfast each morning on the upstairs terrace - also perfect for an end of day sundowner! All the staff are lovely. They all speak good English and are happy to make restaurant reservations for you. They happily provide transport for you which is the same cost as the local taxi firms. They are very well situated for Ibiza Town but the walk up the hill is a workout!! To sum up I would describe the hotel as friendly, relaxed and efficient. Would not hesitate in rebooking this hotel again.
