“Not terrible, not great, everything is added cost.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2011

Stayed here for a 3 day weekend, as part of a 2.5week trip to Spain. The hotel is nicely situated at the top of a hill and has a nice porch. Upon arrival, check-in was simple and efficient, the lobby is very dated and has that low budget European feel. But the hotel seemed full. Paid for and received the cheapest room, on the first floor with a nice porch, but no view. You are given a key the room and asked to return it when you leave, then pick up again up returning. I actually loved this concept as I never worried about losing it. The hallways were dark and had sensor lighting, but never got very bright. The room itself was dated and sparse but certainly functional. There is no TV or Fridge, very light linens, the bathroom was a decent size and the shower was surprisingly nice. The walls are paper thin as some others have mentioned, which wouldn't be an issue, except all the doors slam shut very loudly and the maids move all the beds around on the tile floors. Across the street from the hotel is a nice pool and bar with cheap beers and sangria and a great view. It was very crowded each day we were there, and was about 90% gay men I would say. Its also open to the public, but the crowd seemed like all tourists. The hotel is a 15-20min walk into Ibiza town. Dont take the scenic route, go down to the main street. Its much faster. There is also Figuertas Beach just a 5min walk down the hill. It was a quite nice place to eat and relax.
Comments and Tips: Pay the 3 Euro for the AC. It works very well and it was so nice to come back to a cool room. Bring beach towels. They offer none, but do sell them. We bought some in town for 10 Euro which became our souvenirs. There is a small safe deposit box for 2 euro a day I think. No safe in the room, but I recommend the box. Wifi worked the last day, thats it, and its only offered in the lounge to begin with. Go to Figuertas beach, they have free wifi and it works very well. There is a taxi stand at the bottom of the hill by the beach and there was always a cab there.

Room Tip: A view would make all the difference, be sure to book one. Bring a beach towel and get AC.

Its a clean set of apartments and adjacent hotel. Be aware that booking late will most likely get you a room facing a wall or on a level that isn't very secure, or in the hotel with no balcony or terrace.

I have stayed many times over the past 15 years, mainly because it can be very cheap if booked early and in the shoulder season - This trip was an exception as it was peak, but still good value. The staff aren't very friendly, but its cheap and cheerful so you dont really expect so.

Trying to change rooms is a nightmare, mostly because they are often full, but I have had times there where they weren't full and they just dont like to offer the option (I guess its another room to service), but I was lucky that a rep from the company i booked through was there and he knew one of the other apartments was free so gave me that one

In summary, its a cheap, clean hotel that is good value for money, but dont expect any decent kind of service or friendly staff - was fine for me as it was an apartment holiday so didnt have to see them from one day to the next. I'd go again just for the price. The best by far is the pool on top of the apartments - its run as a public pool, but guests get priority.

Room Tip: book apartmentvery early (even a year in advance)

Stayed here with my boyfriend for a short 4 night break. Was impressed by the cleanliness of the hotel- room was basic with a double bed but entirely adequate. We were on the 3rd floor overlooking the bay so had fantastic views out to sea. Hadn't realised that this was a gay- friendly hotel- it was quiet whilst we were there. Think we were the only straight couple at the hotel but this did not matter.

The hotel is located on a hill so a bit of a walk into town or the beach but there are steps to both of these close to the hotel. The hotel has a lovely pool overlooking the bay with plenty of sun loungers and a nice pool bar.
We paid for bed and breakfast- the breakfast was basic ( cereals, bread, ham, cheese, orange juice, coffee) but for the price thought this was more than adequate.
The hotel staff were polite and helpful but not particularly friendly.
I would certainly recommend this hotel as offers great value.

we were in ibiza for the medeival fair to booked this hotel close to dalt villa.

The Studio we got was really nice and spacious with a kitchen. No great view, but next to pool which had great views.

To save ur legs, its suggested to rent a bike. Makes it really convenient to and from this hilly location into town (just 3-5mins to the port

My partner and I visited the hotel in Sept. '10 for a week as part of a package holiday with a very well known British tour operator.
The service we experienced was great, helpful and friendly staff from start to finish. The room was basic but massive, we could have easily hosted a party!!! :-) The en-suite was a very good size, the only negative thing I would say was the shower head: a bit dated but still worked fine.
Tremendous pool just across the road!
The location is excellent, bang on in the city centre, only a 5 minute walk from the port or the Figueretes beach with its restaurants and bars.
All in all a very good experience and we would definitely recommend the hotel keeping in mind this is a gay friendly hotel.
The only very negative thing is the post box you can find beside the reception desk: don't use it! My postcards got to their destinations two weeks after we came back!!! :-)

This was my first time in Ibiza and I was going for value as usual. This is a great hotel, close to the beautiful old town and to busses that will take you to the beach.

The breakfast is yummy, the rooms are basic but clean and the pool has an amzing view.

from 52€ p/night in low season incl b'fast - highly recommended by lots of friends too.
Has a pool, great views and nice atmosphere without being full of young party kids - more a late 20's-30's crowd.
