“Chilled refuge with a warm heart”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

We just spent the weekend at Hotel Ocean Drive (mid-May) and completely enjoyed it. It's a cool (but not slick) place with a really warm heart. Without exception, the people who we met that work there: reception, bar, restaurant, maids, were outgoing, helpful and cheerful.

I think the location of Hotel Ocean Drive is a huge plus! The little marina across the way is great (we ate at Osteria Panino one night and really enjoyed it). I like that there's just a bit of distance (walkable) between me and the pulsing night life on the island. Although please note that we didn't travel during the high season so, the conditions at/near the hotel could be radically different in July/August.

We had a balcony overlooking the little marina (we were upgraded upon check-in: lovely touch). We had drinks and a good salad sent up by room service. It was also delightful to wake up and chill for a bit in the lovely weather before tackling the day.

The next time we come back to Ibiza, we will definitely stay at Hotel Ocean Drive.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony. It's really lovely.

The Ocean Drive hotel is housed in an Art Deco building that won't be out of place in Mumbai's own historic art deco Marine Drive area. Externally, the building retains all the classic art deco characteristics but inside it is quite modern and minimal. It is not a large hotel but there is a charm about it. And it is located well within the city to allow you to explore the clubs and the touristy parts of Ibiza.

The rooms I had was modern in design and the balcony overlooked the marina and the water beyond, with their bobbing yachts and boats. The late afternoon sun is piercing and the large glass windows can't keep the heat out, as the AC fights hard to keep the room cool. You have to draw the curtains! However it is beautiful in the morning.

The room is trendy in design with sharply designed furniture and lighting. The bathroom is also similar but the washbasin has dubious functionality. It is a compact bathroom with a shower cubicle - so it is functional and not pretty. The breakfast is decent, no complaints on that front.

Overall the Ocean Drive is a good, trendy hotel that offers good access to the key places in this party capital of Europe.

Room Tip: Go higher!

I've stayed here a few times ( when the Ibiza Gran was fully booked) it's definitely not a horrible hotel but it's not great.

Things I like
- good location
- nice breakfast
- friendly staff
- newly remodelled rooms (nice and modern) comes with an orchid ( I love fresh fllowers in rooms)

Things I didn't like
- very small rooms
- no pool :( or gym
- very small and slow elevator
- no room service after 11:00
- no proper restaurant. No one eats dinner there. However there is a couple lovely restaurants across the street.

Overall I don't think it's worth the money. And I would definitely pick the Ibiza Gran anyday.

This hotel is 30 minutes walk from Ibiza town centre, but over the road from the Marina Botafoch, which has a few nice restaurants and shops. Around the back, but without direct access from the hotel is a public beach which is nice enough but from what I saw, extremely busy. The hotel has NO POOL although you can sit on the top during the day in an area which becomes a loud bar at night (ear plugs provided in room!). The bar is closed during the day, so it's quite peaceful for guests, but it's not really designed for sunbathing. It was clean, yes, it was nicely designed, yes, the staff were nice, yes, but it was exactly the same in layout as any bog standard purpose built hotel. Okay for a night or two but after that the fact that you can't swing a cat in your room becomes a bit constricting. You can walk around the bed and that's about it - there's not enough floor space for a sun salutation for example, if you like that kind of thing, which I do, but couldn't indulge in in that particular room. If it wasn't within it's high price bracket I might say it was reasonable value for money, but there was no way it was reasonable value for money. We moved on to another place - Can Curreu near Santa Eulalia which is slightly more expensive, but the difference in was incredible. Ocean Drive is a great city break hotel if you want a weekend in Ibiza town and don't mind a bit of a walk into the city and don't want to chill out by a pool - or do any yoga in your room!

Room Tip: Rooms on the fourth floor get the noise from the bar at night.

We had a sea view room with great view on Marina. Tastefully designed room. Very friendly staff, also with our daughter. Rooftop terrace magnificent. Pity there is no pool but Talamanca Bay is within walking distance and fantastic place for kids, shallow beach and great pizzeria that serves food on beach, pizza's are great.

Extremely friendly staff make this hotel special.

The rooms are spotless (although a little small), with seemingly new furniture and soft sheets.

Should you be one of the 'clubbers' of ibiza who enjoys a hangover cure breakfast, don't brother setting an alarm as breakfast is served till 4 in the afternoon.

I've been going to Ibiza for 10 years, but this was the first time I'd stayed in a luxury hotel and I can honestly say I couldn't fault it. I prefer small, boutique hotels, and this one falls into that category. The hotel is clean, comfortable, stylish and modern. We had a sea view double room which had a lovely view over the old town. The staff all spoke English and were extremely helpful and pleasant. The breakfast was very good and we ordered room service once and the food was truly excellent; not typical room service fare! We were slightly out of season so the rooftop bar had only just opened and was quiet, but I can imagine it being really good in season. The only down side is there's no pool. But I would definitely go back and in fact, tried to get in for August but it was fully booked.
