This hotel is an excellent choice for that relaxing break! The staff are the nicest staff I've ever seen! Marta on the front desk is so lovely and mr cholesterol who cooks your bacon and eggs and omelettes in the morning are so lovely! The food is absolutely fantastic and even the snack bar is great! We stayed for 7 nights and really enjoyed it! Our room was a bit on the small side but english tv channels and our fantastic sea view made up for that! The hotel is absolutely spotless, they have people cleaning all the time! We are coming back here again in September! My only complaint would be the drinks on the all inclusive, the soft drinks arnt really fizzy(watered down) and the beer is quite flat! This however will not stop us coming back, the staff of this hotel made us feel welcome and part of the family!

A friend and I stayed here 6 nights July 11-18 - our first time to Ibiza. We're, let's say, "young at heart" but over 40, and were seeking somewhere to relax, explore the nice bits of Ibiza and avoid the masses/concrete tourist blocks. Victoria and Talamanca were EXACTLY right for us!

Hotel Victoria itself...
Staff: super-friendly and mega-helpful. All excellent!
The grounds: lovely pool and gardens, plenty of room to spread out.
The rooms (standard pool view): not overly spacious, but clean, comfy beds, A/C (the temperature was 38C during the day and 28C at night and we slept comfortably), fridge, safe (though had to pay extra for its use).
Breakfasts: copious and tasty (eggs cooked to order, fresh fruit and juice, breads and pastries, hams, cheese, excellent coffee, etc.)
Relaxation: no disturbances from bar music/the pool area. Some guests returning from the clubs in the small hours were noisy in the corridors but nothing that a pair of silicon earplugs didn't quickly block out.
Guests: a real mix of age groups and nationalities, including (crucially) Spaniards, as well as Italians, French, British, Americans, Germans and Dutch. All the families seemed to have well behaved kids, too - bonus!

Location: Hotel Victoria's towards the far end of Talamanca beach, just a block back so a short stroll from the beach bars and restaurants of which there are many along the boardwalk. A 30-min beach walk takes you to the first part of the marina. From here, you can take the ferry (€2,60 one way) or continue walking about another 20 mins through the marina, admiring the yachts, to get to Ibiza town itself (fabulous place - stylish bars, good restaurants, cobbled streets, boutiques and the old walled UNESCO heritages site town).

Nearby facilities: loads of lovely beach restaurants and bars (most of them not listed on Tripadvisor, it seems, so don't be fooled as there's plenty available), including some with live music; a mini-market two blocks away (including a good selection of wines and nibbles to enjoy at sunset on your hotel balcony while getting ready to go out!); a cafe right opposite the hotel, open at all times of day and night, closed only on Monday, which serves excellent coffee and croissants.

Transport: about 10 mins from the airport. If you are on a package deal and have the option of not taking the transfer, you could be better off just taking a taxi (about €20). There are two or three car rental places very close to the hotel (we didn't bother and found our way about, as below).
There's a bus stop opposite the hotel. The 12A takes you to Ibiza town for €1.65 in under 10 mins (the 12B will get you there, too, but it takes the longer way round a circular route).
Night buses (the famous DiscoBus, which sounds dodgy but is actually a very plush, air-conditioned coach) run from the main resorts back to Pacha, a 25-min walk from the hotel.
From the marina/port, you can take coastal ferries to the hippy markets, Sta Eulalia, etc.
From Ibiza town, you can take the #3 bus to Sant Antoni (€2 each way) to see the sunset, have a glass of wine in Cafe del Mar (probably served by a rude waiter) and admire the PVC-clad human mannequins that parade up and down to promote whatever party the big nightclubs are throwing that night... before escaping back to the relaxing and less brash side of the island! Bliss...

All inclusive stay , well worth it! Friendly , clean , fun , great quality , helpful , relaxed ,
Staff couldn't be more friendly Joan gave us great local advice , Rooms great size, cool and clean (air con works great its people who forget to close doors that have complained about this). Restaurant food great- choices hot and cold, all needs catered for and the views across the port.Antonio was always greeting us with a smile every mealtime.The pools , games room , golf , Bar and play area all perfect for the lazy days by the pool and Lucia made us feel like it was home from home. Close to Ibiza town but far enough away - bus route and taxi available.
Me and my family will be staying here again , we are already talking about going back next year , we all had a great stay ages 6 to 50 all had a great time and all highly recommend it.

Thank you so much Hotel Victoria for a great relaxed stay.So you all next year.

Really happy with our choice! Stayed here for a week.... Wanted somewhere a little quieter but not to far away from Ibiza Old Town. Only a short walk and boat ride across the bay to the Old Town. Staff were very helpful and friendly. No complaints. Rooms a nice size, nice views and very clean! Loved the breakfast!!

My friend and I chose this hotel for a 5 night getaway to Ibiza with the plan of going out clubbing whilst also being able to get a good nights sleep and relax in the day - we were not disappointed,

Location: 30 minute transfer from the airport. 5 minute walk to the sandy beach, 15 minutes to Talamanca itself and 30 minute walk from Pacha. Bus stop just outside the hotel and 2 EUR to get into Ibiza town itself. Taxis back from Amnesia/Play D'en Bossa 15-20 EUR.

Staff: Really welcoming, friendly and helpful.

Room: Good size, clean, comfortable. Room made up daily and fresh towels every other day. We had a pool side room on the first floor so a bit of a view of the sea and not too noisy from the pool bar. Bathroom clean with good shower and hairdryer.

Breakfast: Same selection every day but a big selection of continental style breakfast with fresh pastries and orange juice. There is a chef daily to cook fresh eggs and bacon and staff very helpful. Overall very satisfied with this.

Facilities: Free Wi-Fi (ask for the code at reception). Lovely pool but the sun doesn't start to get onto the pool until 11am onwards. There are other sunloungers which get plenty of sun all day in the garden at the side of the hotel. Poolside bar very nice, relaxed atmosphere and good food for a quick snack.

Overall: Really good hotel. Good value for money and I'd say probably better than some of the more expensive hotels in Talamanca. Good mix of visitors from older couples wanting a holiday by a pool and younger people who wanted the option of Ibiza clubbing but also want a quiet hotel to relax in during the day.

Location: The hotel is 15 to 20 minutes from the airport. Almost infront of Talamanca beach. Its located at the heart of Ibiza where you can find good restaurants, shops and boats. You may consider renting a car from the airport to see the best spots around the area rather than taking the bus or taxi.

Facility: It has most of the facilities that you will need to have a great vacation. I got the room number 420, It has big bed, has mini bar, quiet and has spectacular view. They have game room, very nice bar near pool. If you like watching TV, there are many english channel selections.

Services: They offer buffet with wide selections for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All you can eat at €18.00 during lunch and dinner, all you can drink sodas and wines were also served. This is really a good deal. The staffs at the reception were very nice and accomodating.

Cleanliness: They clean the room everyday. It is one of the well maintained hotel I think around the area.

Security: The Safety Deposit Box is not accessible in my room.

Price: I paid an additional €15.00 per day on the top of the total amount I paid already in advance just to have seaview and high floor. For me, I think its worth it.

I really had a great time in Ibiza and staying in this hotel. If given the chance to come back, I will stay in the same hotel again.

Excellent breakfast, clean rooms, helpful staff and overall very good value for money. Stay on the left hand side of the hotel facing east for the quieter rooms. I will book again.
An example of how good the staff are was on my last day. When I came to collect my left luggage I was offered a towel and a shower, even though I had checked out.
