“Trendy, chilled out hotel slap bang in the heart of playa d'en bossa”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

I stayed here with my husband for part of our honeymoon and we were really happy with the hotel. We were upgraded to a superior room which looked out to the sea and was in a quiet part of the hotel! Room was lovely, very clean and modern and a large balcony. Bathroom had a fab shower and the beds were really comfy. The hotel pool area nice but I felt there wasn't enough beds. Even in the quiet season we struggled on 2 occasions to get a bed as towels were put down early and sometimes no one was even on the beds which was annoying. There was a DJ playing during the day and on the first day it was great, music had a chilled, lounge style however he played the same tunes everyday which I found very monotonous so considering the beds and the tunes we opted for the beach!! Hotel staff were really helpful and great to ask for advice and the breakfast buffet was lovely too. All in all a good hotel for a few days, get up early to get the best beds if you are a pool type person and sit back and enjoy the vibe!

My husband and I spent 2 nights at this hotel at the end of a 9 day trip to Ibiza in late September 2013. Playa d-en Bossa is certainly not the nicest part of Ibiza, but this hotel felt like a quiet oasis away from the tackiness of the main strip. The location at the rear of the hotel was actually really good though - a lovely stretch of beach very close to Bora Bora, Sands, Space and Ushuaia. We found the hotel itself to be very spacious, stylish and immaculate. We were not very happy with the first room we were allocated, which was at the side of the hotel and had a balcony overlooking the back of a supermarket and some overflowing bins. We complained and the staff on reception immediately allocated us a much nicer room at the back of the hotel overlooking the swimming pool. Although it was on the ground floor, the room was really quiet and we slept well both nights. The room itself was nice with a fantastic bathroom. Our only complaints were very minor - the fridge wasn't big enough to stand up a bottle of wine or large bottle of water and there were no tea/coffee making facilities. The large swimming pool was lovely with plenty of sunbeds available. A DJ arrived at 3:30pm each afternoon and played until around 6pm, but the music was a bit naff (various rock songs covered in an insipid lounge style or terrible mash-ups of various different songs that didn't work at all!) There was a lovely café overlooking the beach which we found to be a great place to have lunch. We had breakfast and a buffet dinner in the restaurant each day and the food was good with plenty of choice. Our only complaint was there wasn't much atmosphere in the room itself with very bright strip lighting and no music. The service was really good though. The bar and lounge area are both very cool and stylish, but again, we weren't impressed with the entertainment. On the night we were there, there was a terrible Michael Jackson tribute act with dancers on stage. I would definitely recommend this hotel and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. The only thing I would change would be the DJ / entertainment as they were a bit naff for Ibiza and spoilt the cool vibe of this hotel.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms at the side of the hotel as the balconies overlook the back of the shops, a car park...

What an absolutely fantastic hotel!

Me and my girlfriend booked the hotel for a very reasonable price to celebrate my girlfriends birthday. The hotel provided a perfect setting to relax during the day yet a superb location only 5-10 minutes walk to the more livelier Space/Ushuaia/Bora Bora!

The hotel itself is very stylish and maintained to a very high standard. Our room was a decent size and also had a large balcony which is always a bonus! Only very minor gripe was the TV channels...They only had 2 English channels, one of which was the Disney Channel? However, they do provide free WiFi in the room which is helpful waiting for the other half to get ready!

We booked half board and made breakfast twice... The selection on the buffet was fantastic and of decent quality! There is also another two restaurants on site; we ate at one which was absolutely beautiful and reasonably priced!

The spa is also well worth a visit a great place to rejuvenate yourself after a heavy night before.

I would 100% recommend Hotel Garbi especially for any couples looking to visit Ibiza!!!

Ibiza isn't always known for it's great hotels, but the Garbi is definitely one of the better ones. The location is 5minutes walk from Bora Bora beach. 5minutes walk from Space. But has a quiet relaxed feeling about it that allows you to feel you're in a quiet island. The rooms are spacious and clean. Good sized pool with plenty of sunbeds. You can walk through the restaurant at the poolside, straight onto the sand as the beach is at the back. Food in the restaurant is good, and reasonably priced compared to a lot of other places to. One I'd be more than happy to go back to.

Room Tip: They give you fresh towels very day. You pay a 20Euro deposit on arrival, and get this back when you...

I was 4 nights at garbi, and i have to say i had a whale of a time. I enjoy the swiming pool wich is great, and the super cool spa. As i was tired i decided to make a massage.. And Omg , the thai massage and pedicure was so good, same like when i was in Thailand.. A little bit more expensive, but felt like if i was there ;) Also enjoy the mojitos!! Rooms are ok, not amazing, but funtionally.. Sure i will come back next years!!

We stayed at the Garbi last week and I have to say I was very impressed. The location in the centre of Playa Dem Bossa is great for access to the local bars/restaurants if you fancy them, or to get to Ibiza town via taxi/car in 10 mins. It was spotlessly clean throughout the hotel and the cleaning staff do a great job cleaning your room each day. My only reservation with our room, 316, was that we could barely connect to the WiFi all week, whereas other rooms seemed to be fine. The food selection at breakfast and in the evening is varied and to a surprisingly high quality considering the price of the hotel. Also, the pool and bar area are nicely done, if a bit neon for some tastes !. However, they are well presented / furnished and clean, plus the staff throughout the hotel were friendly, attentive and helpful from start to finish. For the price and location, the Garbi is hard to beat and well worth a visit.

Stayed here again last weekend in September 13 with Westy,Clarke a relo and Gary. Fantastic, very stylish place great food and bars, good music loved it. oh yes and a fantastic free spa....

just down the road is Murpys bar great place place to go but only in May and September when Dave and Murphy bros are there playing....I must mention the Sports Bar right out of the hotel and just past KFC, great place for English food at a reasonable price with English owners

Just one small complaint wifi, its rubbish on the terrace but great on the beach...
