“AKA Hostal Residencia Roberto Playa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

I enjoyed speaking with the friendly staff. They were very helpful. The lift failed to work twice in the one week I was there and the internet device in the lobby was not available the whole week. If other guests are not quiet when they arrive, you can hear them very easily as none if the floors are carpeted and sound reverberates everywhere. The single rooms are small, but sufficient for a single traveler such as myself. Maid service was good, except no additional hand soap, shampoo, or shower gel was left after I used the original supply. Other than that, I liked the place. Not a good place, though, if stairs are a problem for anyone as their front door is not on ground level.

Room Tip: Ask for a room "in the back" if you want a slightly quieter room. Also, the higher up you...

I stayed in June for 5 nights. Staff were friendly and helpful. Bed ok, but pillow was about worst Ive had- I guess you could ask for a better pillow - I just make do. Air con good - not too noisy. Bathroom fine. Worst complaint was, if your in the hotel around cleaning time morning/early afternoon, you hear tables and chairs being dragged back and forth over tiles. Quite distracting. The beach is about 50 yards away and its a nice beach, despite one reviewer claiming otherwise. Restaurants close by and a few bars dotted about. The hotel is in a good location, situated between the Pacha and Space clubs so you can walk home in about 25-30 mins from each club. The port area in Ibiza town with busy bars and dozens of restaurants is 10-15 mins walk. Id stay again.

The only reason I stayed here was the price, and proximity to Ibiza Town. (I would not stay here again - even fat €30 a night)

The hotel staff are very pleasant. The management are lucky to have them -the cleaners do a great job..

The rooms, tired, old tatty- but clean. The air-con works, there is lots of hot water. Very poor beds. The hotel is more of a ' jumped up' youth hostel. Other hotel residents tend to be 'clubbers' with little consideration for others

The area smells of dope, and you WILL be accosted far too many times by drug dealers and prostitutes who will aggressively approach ANYONE from 8pm to 6am. There is a sex club / brothel directly opposite the hotel enterance. So things are particularly bad by the hotel entrance.

All in all sleazy and uncomfortable. Expect to be stopped and searched by the police, who target tourists whilst ignoring the obvious. How much cash has changed hands to 'turn a bling eye' is anyones guess.

Figueretas used to be a clean family resort. Most of the holiday hotels were sold off after failing to meet building regulations. It has quickly turned into one of the worst areas in Ibiza.

Unless you are happy being pestered dealers and prostitutes and been harassed by the police, stay away from this area.

Room Tip: Stay away from Figueretas I am not exaggerating

Thankfully we only had to stay here for one night of our holiday - the pics on the website made the pool look quite large and lovely. There's no way you could sunbathe around it and it's like one of those small plastic pop-up pools our can get in your garden! The bed was positioned next right next to a huge air con machine that meant it felt like sleeping in a fridge when it was on - but when it was off the room got so hot and we didn't want to open the back door because it didn't look like the safest of places! the view from the blacony was looking directly into the backs of other apartments and restaurants and from the front of the hotel there was a kebab and burger place and a strip club.

The beach at the end of the road wasn't a nice one. The only plus point was that we were only a 10 minute walk into Ibiza Town.

We heard doors slamming and high heels clip clopping up the stairs at every hour throughout the night until around 5am. If this is a first holiday with a bunch of 18 year old mates then it'd probably be fine, but if you're looking for somewhere to chill out and take in the sites of Ibiza then it certainly wasn't our cup of tea!

Perfect location, 1,5 minutes walk from free beach, lots of pubs and restaurants of any cuisines nearby, Spar shop remote. Ideally in the middle between the major clubs of Ibiza town, partybus stop is right away, taxis easy to get. There is also a nice chill-out zone for clients. Staff is friendly and flexible. Inner design is nice and rooms are clean. Perfect choice if you are travelling for clubbing and having rest on seashore.

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone, yes the location is pretty good and the price isn't too high but it is extremely basic. Our room smelled musty and old. The beds were so uncomfortable you could actually feel the springs sticking through the mattress. Our shower was a hand held contraption that you had to hold in one hand while washing yourself with the other. The pool is nothing like it looks in the photos and there is actually nowhere to lounge in the sun as the entire pool area is overshadowed by the hotel itself and the trees! There was no "do not disturb" sign for our room so the angry old cleaning lady came and went as she pleased and even when she was asked to leave one morning as were still in bed she just completely ignored us shouted something in spanish and went about her job! The reception staff were quiet friendly and the air-con in our room worked quiet well but they are the only two good things i have to stay about this hotel! Only stay here if you are desperate and just need somewhere to change your clothes!

I booked this holiday last minute, and was very happy about the price.
I had mixed feelings with the whole stay and accommodation.
On arrival I had 2 wait until 2pm, until my room was ready, which was OK.
When I went to the room, I had to go back to rec straight away, because my bedsheets were full of hair, so I got rid of the coloured bed throw and asked for clean white sheets.
The room itself was quite clean, however the tiles in the bathroom were seriously cracked and there was an unpleasant smell as well.
No fridge (which makes things a bit hard, coz as the tap water in ibiza is not good at all, you would need to keep some mineral water with you.. not to mention food..)
small safe can be hired for 10 euros, however I left my staff all over at times, but nothing has been stolen, has been touched by the maid
when the air con was on, some black stuff was falling from it, so i did not use it, but as I had a room facing the garden (the view completely blocked by the other walls of the hostel) it did not get hot, so air con was not necessary.
there is 24 hour reception operating, u can come and go..
like i said the closest small beach is 1 minute walk, but if u follow the beach (few restaurant on the side) u will get to playa den bossa, the lovely party beach. it takes approx 30 mins to walk there, but the view is beautiful, the sun is shining, so why not?
This is a place to sleep, get ready and go. Most of the people book late and find this accommodation affordable. For the money I paid i would not complain. the location is good and it is up to you to make the most out of the time u spend on this lovely lively, crazy island. Next time i will book well in advance and get a better accommodation, but for the first time it was ok.
good luck!

The location is great, just 1 minute walk from a little
