“Ocean Drive: renovation lost authenticity”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Though Ocean Drive is a very nice hotel one can't escape from the impression that it used to be a place with much more character than it is now. Ocean Drive became a "Design Hotel" not long ago. Everything is nice and sleek but for instance the beautiful pink marble floors are gone due to a designer who prefers carpet everywhere. Too bad the marble had a function: it provides coolness during the hot summers of Ibiza (and it's very beautful, too!)

Other than that it's OK, my room was around 300 euro which seems a little pricey even though it was still high season. Staff was kind and helpful but not beyond what you would expect from a good hotel.

The room was a little small but overlooking the bay. If you need wireless internet, ask for a room closer to the middle of the building as mine at the far end of the corridor was out of reach of the network.

One more detail: there is no iron / ironing board in the room and for the entire hotel there are only two available so I had to wait and could use it only for half an hour!

Stayed here for one night as a base before moving on. The staff were helpful and friendly, the facilities very good.

Parking a bit chaotic, but this isn't particularly out of the ordinary for Spain

Room was tiny - at the price, this was a bit galling, but I can understand why the price was so high given it's Ibiza in August.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms a very pokey - literally only just enough room for a double and sliding doors for...

I've stayed at this hotel for business numerous times. The rooms are very clean and modern. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. Guess this is also because it's not a big tourist hotel. Always had a good rest; no noise from people in the hotel or on the street.

Right across the street is a very good Italian restaurant, which has amazing food.

The only drawback is the internet. It is not very fast and it's hard to connect when you are on the top floors.

Rooms are small but well decorated and very clean, good location if you want walking distance into ibiza town at night (about 10-15 mins walk) yet far enough out to be peaceful. Staff were friendly and helpful.
If this hotel had been £150 per night my rating would have been better but at more than double that it is expensive.

The ocean drive is a small hotel over looking botanic marina in Ibiza. The staff are friendly and helpful. I won't recommend the hotel to families.,but it is ideal for individuals and couples.It is idealy located next to the marina,caffes,restaurants and clubs.

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!
