I was on an A.I holiday with a mixed group (aged 20-23).
The location of the hotel was ideal. It took about 10mins to travel from the airport. The only issue with being that close was the noise and closeness of the planes that flew overhead. However, this didn't really distrupt sleeping or sunbathing etc, but you couldn't ignore them.
The hotel complex was quite big and offered loads of different sunbathing/seating areas. The connecting beach was gorgeous (one of the most attractive features of the area).
The pool was also a good size (albeit quite cold at times).
One of the pitfalls of spending the day at the beach was the amount of P.R people trying to offer tickets to clubs etc. We were warned that many of these are, in fact, scams and so refrained from accepting anything. Also, if you highlighted your disinterest, you were soon left alone.
Each of our rooms were different, but all were equally as nice. Everything was clean and well organised and was ideal for us. The cleaning serivce was also fantastic.
The food was really nice. It varied appropriately from day to day.
There wasn't a lot of choice of snacks, in comparison to the assortment of food at lunch, but they did keep you going throughout the day.
The staff, in general, were lovely. The only issue we experienced, within our week stay, was the inconsistency; at times you were able to order enough drinks for your group (i,e. 6) and at other times they only permitted one drink per person. In addtion to this, the male bar staff, at times, could favour serving females over males.
The variety within the all inclusive drinks menu was also quite good, although personally, I feel a few more cocktails would have been a plus!
The main centre of Playa d''en Bossa was about a 5 minute walk from the complex. We opted not to drink outwith our complex (apart from buying alcohol from a supermarket in the centre) as the drinks were very expensive in bars etc (anywhere from 8-20 euros for i.e vodka lemon).
Apart from a wee drop shopping, we rarely ventured into the centre of the town. It was a bit tacky and was filled with 'looky lookys' and P.R folk.
Ibiza town was a 10min/12euro taxi trip from the complex. We went out for dinner one night in Ibiza town, by the harbour. It was a lot more attractive, the food was lovely and very reasonably priced; it was definitely worth seeing.
Within our holiday, we only went to one night club (Pacha), which is worth the visit but again, extremely expensive.
The entertainment team within the hotel were fantastic. If you are into participating within the activities or watching the shows, there is something for everyone most days.
For those with younger children, it is worth noting that the entertainment does not finish until about 12 midnight and is fairly noisy, regardless of where your room is located.
When we were there (start of June) there was a good mix of people, all ages and various nationalities.
We experienced, in total, 2 days of rainy/bad weather, but apparently this was unusual for the time of year,.
One negative aspect of the holiday, I found, was the water in the showers/taps. It was very salty (and thus made hair straightening rather impossible) ... (However, this is only a minor imperfection).
I would definetely go back to Ibiza and Hotel Club Bahamas, but I think I would only go again on an All Inclusive basis. The external drinks prices are just too expensive otherwise.
Furthermore, I would try to go on a 'sunset' trip, as the Ibiza sunset i supposed to be really nice.
