Booked this hotel as a last minute deal for me and the hubby. We got the holiday for what we felt was a great price £711 for both of us all inclusive. It is a typical Spanish all inclusive and having done a number of Caribbean holidays all inclusive and a couple of Spanish they are different. So please do not expect the same. Spanish all inclusive are more restricted to certain times you are able to get food and drink where as Caribbean destinations tend to be 24hrs.
Location - As previously described by others the hotel is isolated, nothing much around it. It’s a 10 minute walk to the beach down some steps which would not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties. It’s a nice beach but the sea has a lot of seaweed in it, which is a pain. There is also an issue with jelly fish but I believe they are all around the coast. It was 15 euros to hire 2 sunbeds and an umbrella which we didn't think was bad, however others on the complex felt this was expensive - I would personally go stir crazy if I had to stay on the complex every day so we spent a lovely day at the beach. There is a beach hut which sells snacks and drinks. 2 Euro for a lager we used to walk down there every night to just watch the sun set. You can walk to Cala Nova which is about 30 mins away, again nice beach and some bars and restaurants to eat at. Es Cana was a 50 minute walk away and we walked there and had a lovely meal in Las Arenas which cost about 55 euros for 2 courses with drinks - very nice. Taxi back to hotel from Es Cana was 14 euro. We also got the bus outside the complex to Santa Eulalia which cost 1.65 euro each way. Taxi back to complex was 15 euros. From Santa Eulalia you can get a bus to almost anywhere on Island to Ibiza town the fare was 2.25 euros each way. The complex has a small but adequate pool, we never struggled for a sun bed all week no matter what time we went down - but I imagine in high season you would really struggle. Also at night there were often not enough tables and chairs to sit at around the bar - and this was when then complex was not full.
Staff - All staff were friendly, the receptionists are great and give you lots of information if you want to explore. The entertainment staff were friendly and chatted to everyone. They work hard all season to try to make sure everyone has a great holiday. The bar staff are good and make your drinks how you like them
Rooms - We booked a studio apartment however on arrival we had to be put in a double room for one night which we were really not bothered about for one night - although would not want a double room all week. We were upgraded the morning of arrival to a one bedroomed apartment which had everything you needed. The balcony was private and overlooked the pizza restaurant to the back of the complex. Safety deposit boxes are located in main reception and cost 13 euros for a week with a 10 euro deposit. We had a fridge in our room which we used to store water. The complex is small maximum number of guests is 370. Rooms are set in gardens to the rear and front of the main building. Rooms were cleaned alternative days (I think).
Food - This hotel is a 3 star and the food reflects that -although must comment that the food was good - we heard people moaning about the food but some people want 5 star for 3 star prices. There was a good selection of food - fish and meat dishes every night, pasta dishes and salads. Breakfast consisted of continental and cooked breakfast. Lunch good selection again. Evening meal for us was often not warm enough but this is probably because we don't like to eat until 8.30, but there is a microwave to warm food up in. Because the hotel caters for a variety of guests including those from Germany and England and other areas some of the meals were a little odd - for instance scrambled eggs with peas??? strange. I agree with other comments that the restaurant area lacked atmosphere, it was a bit like eating in the works canteen at times and trust me when they say food is till 9pm they mean it. You can get snacks at the Bar they put out crisps and also have fruit and sandwiches in a fridge on bar which you just help yourself too Also if you miss breakfast they have croissants etc available and fresh fruit. Entertainment - Daily activities water polo, water aerobics, darts, table tennis etc. Evening entertainment varied from odd shows to the entertainment crew putting on quizzes, bingo etc. The entertainment was okay and we always enjoyed our evenings - again it depends what you want. The all-inclusive bar opens from 10am to 11pm - you can buy your own drinks after 11pm, but we just got a couple of extra drinks just before bar shut and that kept us going to midnight.
I would not hesitate to return to this hotel should I find myself wanting a relaxing break again. I have no negative comments to make. We had an excellent holiday for a good price. We met some lovely people and that includes staff. You just have to make the holiday fit you, which we did as we were not concerned about travelling about or spending money of the complex. It is a great complex for those who either want a break from everything or a base to travel about.
Weather in September excellent average 29 degrees daily.
