We went to stay at Hostal Salinas for a week in August 2011. The plan was to stay there for a week but we left after two nights, we were charged for three nights which was a complete rip-off. We paid 260 Euro + 8% tax per night, the most this place should be charging is 80-100 Euro a night! And here are the reasons why:
1) It's located on the main road at the back of Salinas car-park, it's noisy, you always hear cars and lorries passing by.
2) There's no sound insulation in the building, we could hear everything: from the neighbor's alarm to the slamming doors downstairs.
3) The room was supposed to be the best room, however, it was rather small and without the character. The terrace was overlooking the backyard and had some very basic furniture, it looked so sad that you wouldn't want to use it at all, especially with your neighbors hearing and seeing you at all times.
4) The breakfast was a joke. Very, very basic and we had to ask staff for coffees which took ages.
5) The grounds were small with some worn-out decorations.
The only positive thing I can say that it's 5 mins away from the Salinas beach. But you can't be expecting people to pay 280 Euro a night just for this! Also, we were told that all hotels in Ibiza charge the whole fee on arrival and don't give the money back, however, it wasn't the case as our second hotel charged us at the last day for the actual duration of the stay. Don't go unless you want to stay in an over-priced roadside hostel !
