Dympna and family make the resort and provide anything you need.
Please bare in mind the price you pay and take note of the photo's before you complain as some have.

The grounds are well kept and look after and it provides an ideal base for your stay.
Apartments are simple and provide the basics...if anything is missing you can ask for it and i am more than sure Dympna will provide it within reason.

There is a shop literally in front of the accommodation and the prices are better than some other alternative shops so no real need to shop around unless planning to go to one of the much bigger supermarkets like the one just outside of Ibiza town.

We hired a car recommended by Dympna no issues...But id say hire one even just for a couple of days...we only had it for one day and managed to see most of the island.
We drove to the markets / Es canar / Portinax / Ibiza town / San Anthony or anotonio which ever you prefer for the sunset and explored various areas around the island (you can't get lost really) just helps to have a map to keep an eye on where your going.

The beach is about a 10minute downhill stroll and feels longer on the way back due to the hill but still is not far at all.

Visits to markets etc - I would advise arriving first thing whether by bus or taxi or car.
But don't leave it late as feels like the whole island is visiting the sample place (probably is the case as its a small place)

Anyway back to accommodation - No problems lovely hosts. There improvements that can be made but essentially anything you had a problem with am sure they would fix.
The hotel seemed quiet when were there but i think that maybe how it is all the time which is great. They still laid on some kids shows which was great for the kids.

As a gadget heavy family our only main problem was lack of wifi (this is available in reception)
so if we were to return we would ask for a room closer to reception just for this but otherwise would have no issue returning at all.

Room Tip: If your reliant on internet ask to be close to the reception/on the ground floor maybe

Just arrived back yesterday (1/6/14) after having spent a relaxing week here. Dympna, you are a lovely lovely lady, a real gem and made myself, Emily and liz feel so welcome. We look forward to seeing you again next year. Keep up the good work!

Room Tip: A ground floor apartment is more suited for those travelling with children

We stayed here in May last year and Dympha treated us so well. The hotel is about 10 mins walk away from a lovely hidden sandy beach and also about 15 mins from the centre of St Eulalia.

Dympha and her family were always on hand to help us out and they made us feel really welcome.

Had a lovely break here, the service from Dympna is first class and made this place worthwhile for us. Excellent priced bar also. The new pool area was very smart and the view and lack of high rises around was a big plus. Good location in siesta with a nice walk down hill to the bridge. Some realy nice restauratns nearby also. The rooms are tired and do need doing but I believe this is in the pipeline and couldnt really complain at the price which was amazing value.

I booked the apartments on Tripadvisor reviews, unfortunately they are in the main wrong or people have very low expectations. I know these apartments are cheap but they are very run down and need some serious investment, maybe I was unlucky and got a particularly bad one.

There is no excuse for having damp rooms, cobwebs on light shades, light bulbs missing and birds mess around by the pools that is left for days. I had to buy an air freshener just to make the room bearable to stay in it was so musty smelling.

The apartments are very tired and probably needed revamping 15 years ago by the looks of it. I found the apartments quite dirty with the plaster peeling off some walls, visible damp patches on others, mould in the bathrooms and an ill fitting kitchen.
The owner is nice and the pool area is good but thats about it but we had little introduction when we arrived and I had to ask about safety deposit boxes and supermarkets as no information was provided,

I found one apartment near us that looked like it was condemned, boarded up with a police not entry sign in spanish.
I don't write this review lightly but I'd be doing others a disservice if I didn't write something. Santa Eulalia is a wonderful resort and I'd go again at the drop of a hat but the Villas del sol I'd avoid and spend your money elsewhere.

Please see my photos

The resort is run by a fantastic lady - Dympna OHanlon and her family who made us feel welcome and couldn't do enough for us. The bar and restaurant provide decent grub (burgers, hotdogs pizzas etc) and if you behave Dympna may lay some tapas on!! The courtyard with pools, especially the larger pool area is fantastic, very nicely done and the loungers are comfy (& new) and the 'feel' of the place belies its rating (see photos below).
We met some lovely families out there which for me just underpinned how great the holiday was.
Dympna mentioned she had the go ahead to update the rooms, which are a little basic but perfectly adequate as they are, with some updating this place will be just amazing.
I plan on working out there and using this place as my base and we certainly plan on returning for another family holiday.

Good times.

stayed for ten days in early June , the weather was perfect and still a little quite around the resort which we liked, the walk into the town is great ,which bring you by the beach , which is one of the best beaches I've ever seen for kids.
the resort dose need some updating beds , cutlery etc. , but we stayed very little in the room as there was so much to do around the island(rented car-but bus service very good 3 euro to Ibiza town) and in the local town , the pool was great for the kids (7 & 3 yrs.) the hostess dymphna was great , with a great irish welcome, there was nothing she would not do for you and has great knowledge of the island .would return again.
