“ibiza chill except the music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

Beautiful grounds and romantic retreat which is very well cared for and clearly loved by the family owners who you bump into on the grounds. Lovely views at sunset and a very romantic retreat atmosphere away from the nightlife madness so often found on the island. On a slightly negative note I would say the breakfast is very small and compared to other similar style hotels is not good value. the extra charge for certain kinds of coffee clashes badly with the supposed exclusive style of the hotel and its not a breakfast suitable for larger eaters. the lunch service too was weak, it took over an hour for it to arrive and there was only two other tables eating. the food was ok but again over priced for the quality and quantity. We were sat next to the only other couple who were inches away from us and neither table then made much conversation as it was not very private even thought there were many other tables free on the terrace. Bad music played at the pool side most of the morning, which was French rap music. No music or something very calm would have been much more appropriate for the Zen like atmosphere it is selling. Overall very lovely but more time spent on the real little details would give it the extra points.

What a wonderfull stay again! Every year you will find even more beauty. Alexandre and his staff are there to make heaven heavenly. Just perfect, the room, the food, the pool, the garden, the service, the effort, the love, the ambience, the people, the talks with Alexandre and the lovely dogs. The stars at night, the silence, the smells...My favourite wonderful place to stay in the world! Paradise on earth.

We have found this fantastic Bali - Ibiza fushion style Boutique Hotel and it was fantastic to stay there for a week. Every detail was made with great taste and a lot of love. Alexander and his staff was very friendly and did everything to let us feel welcome and taken care of. We had nice breakfast not buffet style but nicly served. The homemade jam is exquisit. The swimmingpool area and the garden is like paradise. If you feel like it they even cook for you at the pool bar.
We will come back thats for shure.

Room Tip: All rooms are nicely done the Bali style cottages with outside showers are a nice adveture

When you arrive at Can XuXu you immediately feel the love and effort those people have put in this place.
Everything you want during your holiday in Ibiza is here; beautiful romantic rooms, all day service, wonderful pool with big sun beds, privacy but also a bar area where you will meet nice people from all over the world.

You will never forget that feeling of watching the beautiful sunset on one of the sun beds whilst enjoying a nice glass of wine and some bites made by the chef.

Alex and his team make you feel welcome and will take care of everything you wish for.
Can XuXu is definitely our favorite place in Ibiza to stay.

Room Tip: Choose for a Javanese house, it's just super romantic.

We had an amazing time, As soon as you arrive in Can Xuxu you are immersed in a soft luxurious quiet environment. Alexandre has thought about everything you can possibly need to feel comfortable. From the rooms to the staff everything and everyone is trying his best to make your stay a perfect experience.His consciousness about details and his taste are making Can Xuxu a very special place where the asian Bali style meets with mediterranean culture in the most perfect blend. That refine mix is not only present in the rooms but also in the food that the wonderful chef is serving everyday. Alexandre has created over the years a real paradise for the lucky people who have the opportunity to stay in Can Xuxu !

Room Tip: I loved the Java room with the outdoor shower bali style

I thought it was a good idea to write an update about Can Xuxu.

We visited in early May 2014, the very start of the season, and much has happened since my first review back in September 2011.

Can Xuxu still has the same beauty and charm as ever but a steady sequence of improvements has made it (IMHO) even better. Main changes are:

A new "sunset terrace" on the roof of two amazing new suites, open to all. The terrace has views out to the sea and the island of S'Espatar. Fantastic place to have an early evening drink or party.

New breakfast area raised up on a terrace behind the bar.

Outdoor (but covered) restaurant kitchen behind the new enlarged bar area. Now with full-time chef.

Wider menu, all delicious. This applies to drinks as well as food... Breakfast is nearly all inclusive now. Simpler and better value. Personally I like the eggs and bacon with fresh tomatoes - and lots of coffee. Plus Colette's home made preserves are still wonderful.

New chill-out tent beds at the end of the pool. Very nicely done.

But with all these changes the vibe of Can Xuxu remains unchanged, the service friendly and welcoming and of course Alexandre remains the central font of energy.

So lots has happened. Can Xuxu has upped its game to keep ahead of the rest of Ibiza's top hotels and agroturismos. The place is being run on a more professional basis (as visitors to the Island are demanding more every year) but hasn't lost its charm.

The result: it's just better than ever.

Can't wait to go back....

Room Tip: All the rooms are great but I would recommend trying one of the Javanese Huts in the garden. Really...

My partner and I have just returned from a four night stay at Can Xuxu and loved every minute, we are missing Jackie (the owners dog) already!
The grounds are well maintained and immaculate, the pool area was relatively quiet during our stay and therefore very relaxing and tranquil.
We stayed in the Parma suite which had the most amazing terrace and sunset views! The only downside about the room was it was a little dark, that may be personal preference as I like light and airy (the view was visible through a window in the shower which was very enjoyable).
Alex gave recommendations for restaurants and Charlotte was eager to offer advice as well.
The Can Xuxu is a small unintrusive villa with informal staff, who we became on first name terms with.
This is the perfect place should you wish to relax and unwind without the hussle of a hotel environment in idiotic Ibiza!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
CAN XUXU is..........An address to be whispered among friends. Can Xuxu was a Finca acquired by my family 20 years ago which gently and slowly evolved into what is today. Can Xuxu is today one of the most hip and stylish villa around the island, combining comfortable luxury with modern, ethnic and Mediterranean flair. After 20 years of enjoying the unique laid back Ibiza style with my friends, I realized it was the lifestyle that I was dreaming of. Now I share the wealth with my friends...-Alexandre Narakas Atmosphere and StyleOriginally build in the 19th century, Can Xuxu is situated on one hectare on the hillside of a landscaped, luscious tropical garden and has been entirely restored. The property kept its original flavor, a beautiful combination of Ibizencan style and ethnic modern Asian touches that create a unique harmony. All around the property you can see one of a kind pieces that I brought back from my many trips around the world. The Finca is an oasis of peace and tranquility, where the scents of orange blossom, rosemary and lavender blend to indulge your senses. The Finca has rooms with private terraces, suites with chill out corners with sea view. It is the perfect alternative with the vibes of a villa with luxury services. LocationCan Xuxu is located on a hill, on the Westside of the island near San Jose village, 2 km away from some of the most beautiful beaches of Ibiza with a magnificent view of the island of Conejera and the sunset. The Finca is only 20 minutes away from downtown Ibiza and 15 minutes from the local airport. ... more   less
