“Great location, could do with updating though”
Reviewed October 1, 2011

I've read several bad reviews on this site about Lux Mar, but I didn't find it that bad for what we paid. The apartments are very basic and in need of an upgrade, but they served their purpose for a few days if you are in Ibiza for the clubs/bars and they are pretty reasonable value for money (booked through travel republic and think it was something like 30 euros a night or less).The reception staff I spoke to on checking in, checking out and to hire a moped were all very friendly and helpful. The location is very good - 10 mins walk or so from Ibiza Town, 5 mins to Figueretas and 20 mins or so to Playa Den Bossa. Even though we were there during the closing parties I didn't find it too noisy to sleep (although you can hear doors banging etc, so soundproofing isn't very good). I probably wouldn't stay in Lux Mar again as I'e stayed in apartments nearby for roughly the same price that were nicer (Maritimo across the road, which has great sea views) but if (like me) you don't tend to spend much time in your apartment except to get a few hours sleep then they are tolerable.

For 1/3rd of the price it would have been ok. Very clear deficiencies in cleanliness. The beds were no beds, but two very uncomfortable beds. Rusty hot plates that barely worked, torn towels and very noisy.

Jeg takker mange gange for Deres kritik, det er meget vigtig for os at modtage baade de positive og de negative hilsener. Denne sommer har vi haft en del svenske gaester hvilket har glaedet os meget. Der har I mange aar ikke vaeret mange skandinavieske gaester paa Ibiza og derfor vil vi gerne goere det saa godt som muligt for dem der besoeger os. Vi har ikke opfyldt de forventninger De havde til Deres besoeg paa vort hotel, men vi vil goere alt og goer alt for at forbedre os, og vi haaber at skulle De komme tilbage til os en dag, vil Deres forventninger blive indfriet.

GOOD STUFF: Not bad for a 2-3 star type place. We booked a promo room at the LUX MAR and actually ended up staying in the PANORAMIC - right next door - sister hotel - with the large shared pool. We were there last week of August when it's still party season and it was quiet enough (with earplugs). No loud partying by the pool or late night shenanigans...guess it depends on who's staying.
The room was fine, decent furniture, bedding, kitchennette, toaster, microwave, iron, hairdryer, little balcony, washing up liquid & sponge and cleaning everyday. There were just little things like the underneath of the bed and phone receiver not being clean and a bit of damp on the wall.
In terms of location, the hotel is right at the end of Figueretas's beaches just before the major cliffs start so it's not bunched up next to loads of hotels making it a quieter area. From our hotel it's a 10-15 minute lovely stroll to Ibiza Town - up the little road on the left, follow the uphill gravel path - gorgeous views, down the dirt/bumpy/rocky path, under the tunnel, round the corner on the right, through the square and castle or around the outside of the castle into the streets of Ibiza Town.
Superb location for the beach and it's little coves, Figueretas's little bars and restaurants and really good quality Chinese by the beach.There is also a Spa and some other little shops for fruit/veg/milk and what not.
BAD STUFF: The receptionists were friendly and helpful except when we paid for another half-day they did not pass on the details to the following staff on the day of check out and we were disturbed 3 times by phone and knocks on the door to leave by 12 noon. We had to prove our payment with both our hotel and credit card receipts which we thankfully kept and a very basic apology was given. What would have happened if we had left for the beach early and not contactable? Stuff thrown out? It begs the question. If you do stay for longer speak to the staff the night before you're due to leave (and probably again in the morning if you are up before they begin to harass you) and make sure they are all aware.
TIPS: For clubs - NEVER pay at the door as its can be worth your air fare and be careful of touts selling tickets to after parties as they are usually free if you go to the main event (you should get a free wrist band and free transport to follow on to their next gig). A lot of the big out of area clubs like Privilege have free transport back to San An and Ibiza Town as well so you can hop off at Figuerettas.
The island buses are great to hop about in too and are really cheap - €2.50, air conditioned and run every 15-ish minutes....island crossing can be about €30 or more in a taxi. The bus stop is a 10-15 minute stroll - ask at reception.

My best friend and I (we are in our early 30s) went on a budget to Ibiza and these Apartments were perfect. We had a basic but comfortable room with really good air con, a clean kitchen area and bathroom and a good sized fridge. The pool was lovely with us being able to get sunbeds- shaded and in the sun everyday no problem. The staff were friendly and helpful (apart from the older lady), but they helped us get tickets for Pascha, stored our luggage etc. As we had an apartment we did not bother with the hotel food, what we saw of it did not look good! But there are some really great restaurants nearby and 5 mins down the road to the right there is a restaurant called Luna that I would highly recommend. It does not look anythign special from the outside but inside the decor is lovely and the waitress was very friendly. Try the seafood spaghetti- Perfect! We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back.

Room Tip: We were in the Tropicana apartments with no view of the pool so best avoid this if you want a good v...

This is a complex of 3 blocks of apartments. We stayed in the Panoramic apartments, which had wonderful sea views, which I'd definitely recommend if you can get in at the panoramic, others don't have sea views or views at all. Just a small road (not busy as it leads to a dead end) separated our balcony from the waves and a view of the entire coast, which was truely lovely. The apartment is 2 star, but a good 2 star ( I have styaed in similiar standards in supposedly 3 star), with a modern, clean bathroom, with complimentary toiletries. Towels changed everyday and beds fully made. Useful fully equipped kitchette, with lots of crockery/pans etc so we self catered for half the holiday. dining table and chairs inside and on the balcony. Big swimming pool with lots of sun loungers and relaxing water fountain. Short distance to Ibiza town, which is walkable but we took the water taxi (6euro return). 8euro in a taxi to BoraBora beach and Space nightclub. We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at The Panoramic apartments and would definitely recommend, in a nice quieter part, so no rowdy behaviour meaning you can get to sleep at midnight, but close enough to the action. With a lovely prom with bars and restaurants, which provided a pleasant stroll in the evenings.

Room Tip: Ddefinitely recommend if you can get in at the Panoramic block of aprtments

Good location as not in the hustle & bustle of the nightlife but close enough for convienience... Staff really pleasant & helpful although had an issue with the aircon remote not working which didnt get resolved during our stay.. despite asking on a daily basis..! Rooms were clean & presentable.. good for us as we used it as a base - somewhere to sleep... wouldnt recommend for anything other than that though...

We stayed here for 11 nights and chose the Lux Mar based on location as well as our budget, we were also looking for a quieter location with easy access to the nightlife of Playa D'en Bossa. It's within walking distance to Ibiza town (10 mins walk), 10 mins walk to Ibiza town bus station on Av Isisdoro Macabich and 10 mins walk to Lidl and Eroski supermarkets, Playa D'en Bossa is around 30 mins walk. The closest beach is within 5 mins walk as are restaurants and smaller convienence shops.

The staff at check in were helpful and friendly and we were quickly allocated our room. We couldn't have been more than happy with our one bedroom apartment (404), it was basic but adequate for our needs. The apartment was spacious with two sofa beds in the living area, a massive balcony that you could easily sunbathe on as well as awesome views across to d'en bossa and Ibiza town. The small kitchenette in the living area had 2 hot plates, fridge with freezer compartment, sink and basic utensils i.e cutlery/plates/pans, not adequate for being completely self catered.
The bedroom had two twin beds.............easily pushed together, wardrobe with plenty of storage space and another balcony, we found the beds to be comfy enough. The bathroom was in good working order, no problems there. Maids were in pretty much everyday, towels were changed, beds were made, floor swept. One thing I would say was the air con in our room wasn't that great, we opened the doors to both balconies to create a cooling draft through the apartment, it did get quite warm otherwise.

There was one small swimming pool and one larger one, both salt water. Plenty of sun loungers and a life guard on duty at the larger pool, large pool has a shallow area as well as a small sectioned off childrens pool.

Some people have mentioned about noise levels, we didn't have to much problems with noise although can imagine it could be a problem depending on your neighbours.

I wouldn't recommend to go half board or even bed and breakfast, the food although not really bad isn't that great either. Breakfast (full english) can be had for 6-7 euros on Figueretas promenade, small shops nearby for cereal,bread,fruit,yoghurt etc Plenty of restaurants on Figueretas promenade, main course evening meal for around 10 euros and upwards.

All in all from my experience I would recommend Lux Mar, staff were friendly, apartment was clean and in good working order, good location.

Some other tips for Ibiza, buy your club tickets in advance, cheaper than on the door. Pacha restaurant is well worth a visit, spend a minimum of 70euros for free entry into the club. La Bodega tapas in Ibiza town is awesome. Reasonable drink prices in Figueretas bars as well as D'en Bossa bars.
