On a trip to Ibiza with some friends we wanted something affordable and comfortable- considering we wouldn't be staying at the hotel much anyway.

The rooms are very basic and clean with a lovely balcony and view of the ocean.
Breakfast was average, I didn't have very high expectations, but the restaurant staff were appalling-rude and unfriendly-clearly hated their jobs perhaps.

Anyhow, if you have a car to take you around the island and are not looking for anything fancy, it's decent, but I'm sure there are better finds around the island that are more centrally located.

I tried to book a double room with car-rental included, as sponsored in the winter offer on the website, but it took a lot of time and finally they said that the hotel was full.
But in this way they made me lose a lot of time, and I think they were waiting for someone who didn't need the car+room offer...

We booked Lux Isla through the Tripadvisor recommends and we were not disappointed. What you need to know:

- An easy drive from the airport (follow the signs for the Port then follow the signs for Talamanca. 20 mins).
- Free parking available in streets surrounding the hotel.
- Clean, modern, comfortable rooms. Most have balconies.
- If youre opting for a triple, the sofa bed they provide is perfectly adequate and very comfortable.
- Hearty breakfast.
- The staff were very friendly and polite.
- Talamanca beach and its bars and restaurants are a mere 3 minute walk.
- Ibiza town is a 5 minute drive. For free parking, park along the verge opposite the Formentera ferry port. Just look out for the ditches/drains though!!
- Pacha is mere 2 minute drive and there is ample parking.

The area is great for anyone wanting a quiet chilled out place to rest. The only issue we had with noise was the occasional conversation between revellers who were returning to the hotel at silly o’ clock in the morning. In their defence they probably had no idea how sound travels in the hotel. It would have been good if the night porter had kept an ear out to ensure peace for the other guests.

this hotel has no pool, but is right next to the best family-friendly beach closest to Ibiza town (Talamanca beach)

i guess no pool means no little kids - so may be good or bad for you!

basically if you're looking for a convenient place to stay right next to Ibiza town, where you have access to a decent beach (Talamanca is v family-friendly, loads of different restaurant options, and no dance music pumping away) this is a good choice and prices are v good

incidentally this hotel is open all year round - and is incredible reasonably priced (less than EUR 50 per night) in winter

of course if you're looking for glamour, a lobby scene, a pool, a place to impress etc.. there are others to choose from!

We have just spent a week over the Easter holiday at this lovely small hotel
The staff from receptionists to the barman to the cleaners were all very helpful,efficient and friendly.One lady (Bus?) who I think may have been the owner even rang our room to wish us goodbye
The rooms were very comfortable and spotlessly clean with towels changed every day
There was a reasonable choice for breakfast although the eggs were not the best,and the bar also had food if you needed it in the evening (toasties, lasagne,pizzas etc)
There are a few places to eat in the immediate vicinity or there is a wider choice about a ten minute walk along the beachfront
The area had a very Spanish feel to it , maybe it was a bit early in the season for the Brits,
and felt very relaxed
We had several lovely walks-spring flowers in abundance The walk into Ibiza town we found a little longer than a previous reviewer - its about 20 mins to the port area and then another 10-15 mins to the old town itself (unless they knew a short cut)
We would definately stay at this hotel again
