IN SUMMARY: IDEAL LOCATION, NICE HELPFUL STAFF, VERY CLEAN, GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY.
My wife and me were not sure whether Ibiza would be a great choice for a quiet holiday but we decided to go for it anyway. This Hotel was a good choice as it is ideally located: 50 mt off the main road of Playa den'Bossa which has plenty of bars and restaurants (easy to go to with a 10min walk) and therefore quiet with the comodity at easy reach if wanted. Ibiza city centre is 10mins by car although it may be quite hard to find parking in the evening near the city centre, although this is definitely worthwhile. Just outside the hotel garden starts the long beach of playa den'Bossa which however is a public beach (with he tiny port just there, so if one wants to swim in the sea may have to move down 100mts or so t othe right, but if you turn left and walk around the corner the water is amazing as the beach much quieter). If one likes more privacy the garden and swimmingpool are quite nice and quiet. Personally we preferred to drive around the island to visit around and explore the different beaches (must see Cala Comte, Agua Blanca but also little jewels as Cala Molì, Cala Xarraca, etc - litterally in the morning we checked where the water looked nicer on googlemaps and then drove there). The hotel offers free parking just outside the door which is handy if one rents a car.
The staff at the reception was very kind and helpful and had appropriate proficiency of the english as you would expect from a 4 star hotel. The reception area is somewhat "old style" almost out of the late 90s, but the feeling was definitely welcoming and as it was tidy, clean and cozy. There are 3 elevators which are quite quick and we never had to wait for more than 20 secs for one. The breakfast in the morning offered a good choice of british style as well as continental. The waiters were very efficient to clear your plate as soon as you finished eating.
The room was, in style with the rest of the hotel, kinda retro but very clean and bright. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom spacious with a nice powerful shower. Hair-drier was present and in working order. MAKE SURE YOU ASK FOR A SEA-VIEW ROOM (which we had and was amazing to see the sea in the morning or have a tea on our balcony in the evening before going to bed). Room service was also very good, tasty food and served promptly, again good value for money. There is free mini-bar, which however contains no alcohol (it may on request I think, but we did not ask), but is refilled daily with water, fanta or coke. The TV was decent size with a good selection of channels in many languages. The room was always quiet.
A special note for the STAFF which was salways VERY HELPFUL and efficient.
The only negative note for us was the wee charge for the use of the safe box in the room, which worked with a key rather than with a combination.
I would definitely return to this hotel if I were to stay again in the area.
