Me and two friends stayed here for a week in early September and had no complaints at all. Reading a few of the less positive reviews before we left we were wondering what the fuss was about as we found the hotel comfortable, quiet and the staff friendly and helpful.
Situated on San Antonio Bay down a quiet lane off the main road it was ideal for us who do like a drink and to go clubbing but now we're in our 30's we would rather be quiet and chilled during the day. Next to the hotel is a beautiful little beach that was never crowded and also had a small restaurant next to it called Sa Flama which had a really good, cheap menu. Sunbeds on the beach are 4 euros for the day off the guys at Sa Flama. However we very rarely ate outside the Tagomago as they had everything you could wish for staying half-board with the breakfast and evening meal. I genuinely thought this the best selection of food I've ever experienced on this type of holiday. Breakfasts had literally everything from cereals, toasts, fruits, pastries, traditional english and all types of drinks and the evening meal again had a massive selection of salads, fruit and veg, different meat and fish dishes every night and big dessert table to choose from. Massive kudos there to the chef and staff who were all extremely friendly and very helpful. This attitude of the staff pervaded throughout the hotel as the maids were also genuinely nice people and after reading some comments on Luis the manager you'd expect some kind of tyrant but he seemed like a nice bloke who was rightly proud of his hotel to me.
We had a triple room on the top floor that had a balcony with a fantastic view across the bay to San Antonio town and the surrounding hills. The room was clean and basic with TV and a spacious bathroom with all the usual amenities inside. Our room also had an A/C unit and a ceiling fan.
As for San Antonio it's about a 20 minute walk if that from the hotel but as you never leave an area full of bars and shops I couldn't really tell where the town actually ended and I would never imagine getting a taxi or anything like that as it's just not that far. The resort itself is all about personal choice. Personally I'm not a big fan and prefer Playa d'en Bossa which is a bit more European and about the music and a bit less about the club 18-30 crowd wandering around trying to outdo each other all the time. The bar strip known as the west side took me back ten years to Faliraki with people throwing up in the street and people hassling you every step to go in bars and I just didn't like the place. The bars on the sea front promenade were more appealing especially the Ibiza Rocks bar where Judge Jules and Ferry Corsten DJ'd for free one night. My advice would be if you are 18-30 and English you'll love San Antonio but if you are from anywhere but the UK and are over 30 go to another resort.
Tips for Ibiza virgins looking to party are do not buy drinks in the famous clubs as beer is usually around 15 euros and mixers anything up to 23 euros but supermarket beer is cheap and most of the bars offer cheap drinks just to get you through the doors. Also booking tickets for clubs in advance works for me as you hardly have to queue and they're usually cheaper.
