“Relaxing, clean, good Ibiza vibe and the best Serice”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

We went to Ibiza to relax and enjoy the real Ibiza nature... Going out was not our priority, but we did not wanted to be to far from the city and the clubs. The hotel is quit and relaxing (at day and at night), we rented a car and in 20 min. we were at Pacha and Ibiza city. Santa Eulalia is a nice place, peacefull. It has some bars, but not ment to go out like crazy.

The hotel is TOP! When I walked into the garden It felt good, this is what we were looking for, the real Ibiza vibe, without the partystuff... Our room was awesome, beautiful, clean and we had a litle terrace, loved it! The beds are good, also the cleaning was perfect. The service is so good, kind and nice.
Breakfast is good, noting to notice. Dinner is good, but we had a bad experience, 2 of us ordered a steak, it tasted like gamba (1 of us ordered gamba). When we told them they made us an other steak, this one was good.
The bar is open till 0 'o clock, we had a birthday and it was no problem to stay a bit longer.

I would go back! I give them a 8,5/10 !!

Room Tip: Ask a room with view on the garden or at the backside, we had room nr 102. You have no view but you...

we had mixed views about this hotel - stayed for 4 day break mid May.
Plus side - clean and well cared for rooms; pleasant breakfast good choice and service on hand to top it up regularly. Great location just above the town but only 5 min walk and in the middle so best of both worlds. I imagine in the summer the breeze and the relaxed shady garden are delightful but in May, with the hotel very quiet, we did not appreciate the outdoor restaurant as it was empty. I would also be concerned in summer if you could ever park a car nearby - no parking and we had to walk a long way in may when out of season.
Downside - lack of English and or lack of any sense of service on the front desk; we didn't feel welcomed to the hotel just keys and walked away. Our first room was tiny with half a balcony even though I had booked a classic room which was mid-priced. I asked to change which was no problem and the next day we were moved next door to a larger balcony and slightly larger room. Why not give us a decent room if the hotel was empty and I think the classifications don't mean anything unless you pay extra for a garden room. We were in the main hotel and the walls were paper thin to corridor - luckily, it was quiet but one night constant doors opening and closing.
96E a night B & B seemed quite a lot for this hotel - I would probably be writing a great review if I'd paid 75E . Nothing really wrong with the hotel - just not charmed by it.

We had a great stay in this lovely two star hotel.
As others have said the gardens, pool and restaurant are lovely. Very Ibiza cool !
Rooms are shabby chic, much preferred than 'samey' chain hotels.
Yes there are very steep steps up to reception which means not ideal for young children.........result !
Great views over the see from a lovely breakfast room which always had a cooling breeze in the morning. A great place to start the day (see pic)
Staff not super friendly however didn't speak any English.......not necessarily a bad thing ? A great Spanish local hotel. We didn't experience any problems others have had

Long girly weekend, hotel surpassed what we expected. Decor fab every room different, gardens and pool areas lovely and so chilled. Highly recommend you eat at their restaurant far better than any food we had at the 'all fur coat and no knickers' marina eateries!! Just delicious and good variation.
Linens on tables, beds, sun beds down to cushions all immaculate making you just want to lie about and totally relax.
Hoping to go back in June with husbands this time as ideal place for couples or groups not wanting hassle, football shirt wearers and sorry to say this but children.
Staff could not have been more helpful and lovely.
All in all if you like chilled, boutique almost Turkish in style family run hotel in great location at a brill price this is the place for you .

We spent a week at the Buena Vista in August last year and loved it so much we are returning for 10 days this year for our honeymoon. It's a perfect break for a couple - not really suitable for children. 10 mins walk to the beach, restaurants etc. Lovely room, four poster bed, private balcony, romantic in every respect. Helpful staff - have read the negative reviews about the owner on Reception but I think he perhaps just struggled with spoken English. Would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to other couples looking for a reasonably priced hotel in a beautiful town.

Room Tip: Pick a rural room on the top floor of the 'new' building for privacy and a fab view with a h...

Read the reviews and was a little dubious, how wrong can you be? This is definitely not the place for you if you want lifts, power showers and matching wood veneered furniture!!
Travelled with a group of girls and everything was great. Was a bit worried at first as the steps had to be negotiated with a case but no problems as we was told to leave our cases as they would be taken up the steps, very relieved and they was then taken to our room. Went to the bar on our first evening and had the most fabulous time drinking, chatting and eating tapas. Could not have been better looked after.We stayed in a family room and there was more than enough room for 4 girls to get ready for a night out!!! Shabby chic at its best I would say. The hotel is situated in such a fantastic place, overlooking the area of Santa Eulalia that you could not feel chilled. The pool area is small but shaded and as for the sunbeds, yes there was a few dodgy ones but the lush cushions and the ambient atmosphere more than makes up for it. The restaurant is amazing and after our experience of the restaurants in Santa Eulalia I would recommend that you eat there for breakfast, luch and dinner.... Service was fantastic and the food was amazing. Seriously the staff could not do enough to please you, even going to the extremes of serving staff paella to us!!! There is an atmosphere of total chill out, and this is emphasised with the layout of the area. Big sofas and table that have candles burning in lanterns just set the atmosphere spot on.There was an incident with a kindle so my only suggestion would be to utilise the safe deposit box that is provided in your room. All in all I cannot recommend this hotel enough.

I spent a week at Buenavista. The general impression was good and I would go back to Buenavista if I ever go back to Ibiza.

I was a bit concerned when I booked because two recent reviews at TripAdvisor complained about thefts. I have to say that security does not seem to be a big concern for most clients, as they would leave the rooms´ keys at the entrance (where anyone could theoretically take them and access their rooms). I guess most people never had a problem, as otherwise the hotel would run a different policy. On top of that, there is a free safe on every room for those smartphones / jewellery / etc (you pay a deposit for the key, and it is given back to you when you return it).

The sea can be seen from most rooms, including the room where breakfast is served and the swimming pool. Most of the view is blocked by more recent buildings built near the beach, but the view is still nice.

The hotel is near the beach (*) and the town centre, but then again everything is near in a place as small as Santa Eularia. The river and the park as very near too, as well as a couple of supermarkets and shop that are very convenient.

The swimming pool is small but charming. The restaurant is very nice (especially in the evenings, when you can enjoy the sofas and the chillout music) and not expensive (for Ibiza).

Rooms have a/c (absolutely necessary in the summer) and free wifi (although cover is not good in several rooms, and you must go to the reception area to catch it).

The hotel is at the top of a hill, and has stairs everywhere. Good for views and for character, but *if you have a problem with stairs, do not come to this hotel*.

(*) Santa Eularia´s beach is one of the less impressive in Ibiza, but still nice. Most people will be happier if they rent a car and enjoy some of the more beautiful (and less crowded) beaches on other parts of the island, rather than stay at Santa Eularia.

Room Tip: If you need wifi in the room, say so when booking so that you get a room near the reception desk.
