“Good deal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Ibiza can be very expensive! These Apartments are a good deal if you are on a budget. I shared one of the Apartments with two friends. The rooms are clean and new. The kitchen is nice and practical. I loved having dinner with my friends on the balcony. The receptionists have been very friendly and helpful. When going out in the night, you can either decide to walk (it would take you 20 minutes) or take a taxi (for 3 people we used to pay 3 £ each). If you are not looking for a luxury experience or a romantic venue, I recommend it!

Difficult to review these apartments objectively as we had a difficult experience after our room was burgled within a day of arriving, but here goes.. Make up your own mind.

Positives- well equipped and spacious but otherwise quite basic apartments & also pretty clean. Balcony looked out over pool and promenade facing to sea. Good location for Ibiza town but surrounding area not really that nice. Seperate bedroom and bathroom also nice touch, basic bedding & towels but again clean. Pool small but nice comfy loungers.

Negatives - No safe in room and basic barrel lock handles on the doors. Safe is available in reception ( extra charge) but please note its tiny so we couldn't fit our plastic wallet with travel documents in only passports and purses. The Hotel has little in the way of security, you ask for key at reception and leave it again on the way out. Also its on the biggest keyring ever! We kept ours on us however it didn't stop the room being robbed! Also No security cameras in hotel and people seemed to just wander in and out downstairs. The hotel seems to back onto a residential area and the walkways and corridors were very 'open'.
So its not suprising that within two hours of being down at the pool someone had managed to get into our room (we had the key on us) break the padlock off our suitcase and steal all the things we couldn't fit in the tiny safe. Cameras, iPhones, GHD's jewellry etc when reported , we were given little sympathy and what seemed like disbelief and were directed to nearest police station where no one spoke English and our basic Spanish proved a struggle. Even though we were visibly distressed, there was no offer of moving us to another sister hotel and the best we were offered was a change of lock and a new key.. Not much good when someone has magically managed to break in without a key!! No offer to interview hotel staff or search the hotel.
Bad Customer Service with little regard for what was a traumatic experience only one day into our holiday. We would never stay here again for the experience alone despite it otherwise being an ok budget apartment hotel....

Excellent location to start off with..Made us realise the beauty of Ibiza from our room balcony..And not too expensive..located at the city center so you do not miss out the party scene.We came from barcelona and had a lot to expectation from the location and we surely were not dissappointed.. The staff was very kind and provided us with great room service (you dont expect too much in EU anyways).

Could not fault these apartments! My partner and I had a fabulous time ! Will certainly be returning !! We loved Figuerates, we visited a few other resorts and were grateful to be staying there. The apartments were spacious, the bathrooms were modern and our view of the sea was sensational. Wished i was still there.

Me and friends (brazilians but live in USA) were amazed by the view and such a good space in the apartment (yes, more apartment than a hotel feeling)
Walking distance to a supermarket so you can have some of your meals at the apartment.
Staff were friendly enough, not too noisy in september and not too far from parties (we want to do both)
PLEASE don't forget to go to Formentera. Amazing time

Firstly I would like to mention what a great place figueretas is. It's quite a classy little bay sandwiched between Ibiza town and Playa d'en Bossa. Great place to chill out, sunbathe and enjoy some lovely beachfront cafes but easily in walking distance (10 mins) of Bossa and Ibiza town. There is a also a great little boat service that links the three places every half hour.

As for the Hotel, it's pretty good! The rooms are spacious, clean and functional and the kitchen is great for the off bit of cooking with the fantastic local ingredients on offer. The balcony was a decent size complete with table and chairs perfect for dining and drinking in the evening. The location couldn't be better as the hotel opens right onto the beach front. The hotel has a slightly dated feel but this hardly matters.

Unusually in this day and age there was no free wifi in the rooms so be warned that need to sit in the lobbey for internet access.

The main lobbey and bar appear to have had a facelift ... strangely there is a neon-lit duvet hanging in front of the reception which may be some attempt at modern art! The front desk staff are some of the best I have experienced in Spain... never a queue and all spoke perfect English (if you like that).


The pool area was pretty nice but we didn't use it that much as there is a phenominal beach less than ten metres away! The sun loungers were few but very comfy and always seemed to be free... probably because most folks opt for the beach. The beach, as mentioned, is right next the hotel pool and very chilled out. At 6 euros for a sun lounger on the beach for the whole day, it's pretty cheap and a trip to the local spa store will get you cheap snack and drinks.


Top tip for groceries if you are self catering... there is a lidl store just around the corner! Sounds very un-Spanish I know, but they actually stock loads of fresh Spanish veg, cheese and meats and or course beer and cava (all very cheaply priced too)! Give it a go!

In summery, Figueretas is a great place to locate yourself in Ibiza and Apartementos Mar y Playa will provide a very comfortable and enjoyble base for your holiday!

We stayed here for 4 nights and were really impressed - having stayed in other places on the island (Ibiza Town and San An), this would be my favourite. Although we didn't have a sea view, our apartment was really spacious and kept clean...and only across the road from the pool! Staff were great and always helpful - we had an issue with our air con and it was resolved extremely quickly. Although the pool loses the sun in the afternoon, it's very clse to beaches and Bora Bora so easy to get the sun elsewhere! Would thoroughly recommend it, especially if you're looking for a bargain.
