Reviewed August 14, 2009

We have just returned from the Hotel Abrat having spent two weeks half board and our overall impression was that this is a great place to stay. The rooms are spacious with plenty of wardrobe space and although perhaps in need of a makeover, as far as bedcovers and curtains are concerned, the accommodation is spotlessly clean. Not only are the rooms cleaned every day, fresh towels are supplied. Despite the hotel's age, the foyer and lounge is attractively decorated and furnished and the dining room is clinically clean and pleasant to have meals in. The food is excellent! There is a more than adequate choice for breakfast, ranging from cereals, rolls, croissants and sliced bread which can be toasted. Boiled or fried eggs, bacon and sausages are available every day. Sliced cheeses and cold meat are always on the breakfast menu. Beverages such as tea, coffee and hot chocolate are also provided. What I find strange about Spanish hotels is that you never get real fruit juice considering that citrus fruits are widely grown in Spain. The Abrat is no exception, the juices are like sugary flavoured water, so perhaps this is our only criticism. Evening meals are of a very high quality with plenty of choice. During our stay, there were always meat, fish, pasta or rice dishes as well as the odd vegetarian meal. The food on the hotplates was regularly replenished. Chips were on the menu every night but it would seem that although they are the least healthy option, they are very popular. We certainly did not see plates of abandoned food or people turning their noses up at what was on offer. I would suggest that holidaymakers who have commented on the food being 'disgusting', 'inedible' or 'too Spanish' should either go to Skegness or stay at home. We have been in 4 and 5 star hotels in Spain in the past where menus do not entirely live up to our expectations or the hotel's star ratings. I think the Abrat, for us, had one of the best restaurants by far.
The bar again is well run and immaculate. Our only negative comment would be that, like any hotel in the world, everything is overpriced. Regarding entertainment, we never spent evenings in the hotel so are unable to pass comment on what was provided.
The pool area is well maintained and cleaned daily and there is absolutely no problem finding a sunbed. Leading off from the pool there is an attractive garden which is partly shaded by trees. Here, a childrens' play area and tennis courts are provided as well as access to the beach.
Throughout our time in the Abrat, the staff were always helpful, approachable and efficient.
We will definitely go back to the Abrat it is a gem of a place.
Close to the Abrat there are lots of pubs, cafes, shops and restaurants. It is about fifteen to twenty minutes walk to the West End which we actually enjoyed. The other route to the West End is around the coast, which is more scenic and just as enjoyable a walk except that it takes considerably longer. The nearer you are to the hub of San Antonio, the more expensive the prices. We actually found a small bar on the edge of the West End, 'The Willow Tree' that sold every drink for half price. We also found the bars in San Antonio Bay were cheaper for food and drinks.
All in all a great holiday.

We spent ages surfing the net to select our accommodation, and we were delighted with this choice! Situated on the sea front, right next to a small beach, and yet on the edge of San Antonio’s maelstrom. It was quiet but within yards of some top sunset bars. It’s only a 10 min walk north to a charming, large beach, and a 10min walk south to the West End of San Antonio. There’s a reasonable-sized, clean swimming pool, decent bar, plus a large garden area for those wanting complete peace. And whilst the décor is out dated the place was clean and tidy and not unattractive. It was a bargain too, and we’ll be returning here in 2010. One note of caution: of course not all the rooms have the fantastic view over the bay.

Lovely holiday hotel at the small beach of Calo des Moro which has lifeguard, near to the top bars for watching those famous Ibizan sunsets. Excellent reception staff who will help with any tourist queries. Excellent housekeeping with daily towels and bed make up, etc.. Good restaurant with lots of choice. Bar area is adjacent to pool and sun area with service both inside and out with reasonable priced drinks (pint of beer 3€) and snacks.Small play area for kiddies set in very large garden which has sun beds and the comfort of trees offering shade for those like me who can't take a full day in the sun. It is a ten minute walk to the harbour area where San Antonio night life gets in full swing which has the attraction of not having to see or hear that unless you make a positive choice to be there, I love it during the day though.

Absolutly loved this hotel, being abit of an Ibiza regular this was a great hotel. Situated just out of the centre but not to far, just near mambo's, If you get a sea view you can watch the sunset. The staff were very friendly and helpful, also weve found in other hotels that you are not allowed to bring people back-no problem here. Not a young young lively hotel, no entertainment in the day, there was a mixture of groups, couples and families but overall we just sunbathed , good size pool & plenty of beds....We was a party of 7 girls, so headed off at night-No entertainment for the young ones....
Food was great, couldnt fault it, always different choices and different everyday...
Couldnt fault it & would defo go back.....

This was our second year at the Abrat and it was as good as last time, if not better. We had requested the same room as last year and we had been allocated it when we arrived which was a nice touch.

The location is great, next to the Cala des Moro beach and a stroll from Kanya/Coastline etc. The west End is far enough away to not hear any noise but not too far to walk to. Taxi's are easy to get from the reception or the road outside and there are plenty shops and cafes nearby.

The pool area is fine. Plenty sunbeds and a real sun trap. Some of the bar staff can be a bit rude but they are fine if you treat them as you would expect to be treated.

Food still nicer than the average inclusive hotel food. I'm fussy and there was always something I could eat, loads of salad and usually some pasta. Deserts are nice too.

We'll be back again next year!

Have just returned from a 2 week stay at the Abrat, had a really good time in Ibiza, and Abrat was much better than i was led to believe, from some of the reviews, we are a family, aged 52, 47, 12,

We arrived at the hotel early 11am check in is 2pm, so where expecting to wait for our room, but we where given a room immediately, location of hotel is nice, a very small sandy bay, but the garden of the hotel more than makes up for that, some nice bars close by, but quite expensive, to walk to the West end along the sea front probably takes 15 to 20 mins, but you can walk the back way along the roads and you will be in the West end in 10 Mins.

I think the size of the room was above averqage, air conditioning really good, no its not the Ritz , but have you ever stayed in a hotel abroad that compares to it? Hotel is basic but very clean, good food, as good if not better than most hotels we have stayed in, no complaints, only niggle is not as much choice of food, and food not labelled, but the food on offer was of above average, hot and well prepared.

Really enjoyed our Holiday and would certainly return to Ibiza and the hotel Abrat.

Before going, was a bit worried by the mixed reviews, Don't go expecting top class, but to be honest we have been going abroad for over 20 years, and have never had a holiday from hell, but the hotel star system abroad is not the standard you expect from the star system in the uk.

Overall i think this hotel is ideal, We had no problems eating or drinking our own food, in the Garden, or around the pool, but quite often had a snack from the Bar which was very nice.

We were two young girls (21 and 22) on a fun girlie holiday to Ibiza. We wanted to experience the Ibiza nightlife, but also venture to other parts of the island whilst we were there.
The reception staff were very helpful and were able to recommend places and provide directions to get to the places we wanted to see. There is also a wealth of information provided in terms of leaflets and bus timetables etc within the hotel reception/lobby area. The breakfast was reasonable, although there was no fruit available, which disappointed us somewhat. Also if you are only on a B&B basis, then the hotel bar only serves pizzas after a given time - not exactly what you want everyday!!
The pool is quite small, but adequate and never had a problem getting a sunbed/chair. Althought the hotel is located in San Antonio Bay, it is quite close to the main resort of San Antonio (a walk of sub 10 minutes if you walk through the town, and perhaps 20 along the bay itself).
Top Tip:
I would advise people to get a taxi back from San Antonio to the hotel (costs around 5 or 6 euros) as the walk back is not particularly safe. Unfortunately we had a mugging incident, and when we made friends with others heard that this was not uncommon. Other tips would be to visit other parts of the island (particularly liked Talamanca, near Ibiza town) where the beaches are cleaner, sparser and serve better food - unless you are a pizza, burger, all day breakfast, chips kind of fan in which case San Antonio Bay and San Antonio will suit you just fine!!
