“Best hotel ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

My husband and i aged 52 & 54 stayed at thie hotel from 23 May 2012 for 1 week. It is truly the best hotel we have stayed at. The staff are faultless, polite and extremely helpful from cleaners to entertainment to bar / restaurant staff. the rooms are spotless and comfortable, they are cleaned every day and towels also changed every day. There is day time and evening entertainment and staff are encouraging but not pushy and always happy. The restaurant is spotless and the food is the freshest we have ever experienced, great selection and extremely tasty. There is a grill on every evening with meat & fish being cooked to order, restaurant staff are amazing with a smile for everyone. We have visited Ibiza 3 times and this is by far the best hotel yet. Small beach is a short walk from the hotel with beautiful restaurants looking over the beach / sea. Buses run regular from hotel to San Antonio which is approx 1 Euro 40 (depends on the time of day) taxi is quite expensive at around 10 euro! If you have booked this hotel you will not be dissapointed, although we went as a couple with no children there were a lot of families and plenty for children to do. Snack bar has Burgers, hot dogs, toasties and chips which you help yourself to. Love, love, loved this holiday...

Room Tip: Pool view recomended

had a good two week holiday here. on arrival were given a ground floor room in block 5, back to reception and asked to change room, we were given a pool view room in block 3, so if you're not pleased reception will try to help as they were very friendly, as were all staff from cleaners, restaurant and bar staff to the handymen. entertainment staff worked hard but evening entertainment was dire. the two nights the karaoke was on they managed to find the songs for 4 and then 6 the second night, a wild bird show and then a reptile show twice in a fortnight were the only guest shows the rest were the entertainment team. pity for it is a good hotel

Room Tip: some balconies look straight into the balcony opposite, no privacy

As a group of 13 aged from 4 to 82.We had a great time and all found the entertainment brilliant.We stayed here from 12th to 19th may.The daytime activity staff were great and all with a lovely personality.However the bar staff were miserable and watched every drink you got from the bar.We were all inclusive but hated the long queues at the bar which got worse as the week went on.No problem with the rooms but the food could have been more catered for the english.

The bar staff very friendly Ceasar and Miguel didnt complain if we went and got 5 drinks in one hour or just 2, They were extremely nice and very profesional. The food was excellent, fresh, tasty and alot of pride is taken within the restruant area including freshly fried eggs, meat and fish.(well done girls). The entertainment was good and the instaff entertainment team work really hard and this also includes the children and teenagers. (excellent well done you made the holiday). the hotel is spotlessly clean and cannot fault the grounds and garden areas (very pretty). The walls are thin, the beds are very comfortable and some of the rooms are a little small but your only sleeping in the rooms. Decor is good and bathroom very nice. Overall this hotel is excellent value for money it is at a higher end of most 3 star med hotels. the Area is quiet there is not alot to do but honstley we got a bus into San Antionio town euro: 1.50 approx, everyday and from there travelled into Ibiza Town euro 1.90. This hotel is very good to excellent and i would recomend it, everyone works so hard there. this has got to be my favourite hotel out of the three ive stayed in this year.. (2 x majorca 1 x ibiza) if i could of picked this hotel up and placed it in Majorca it would have been perfect........

Room Tip: pool view building only three rooms high middle floors are good.

13 of us have just spent a week at this hotel and we had a great time.youngest is 4 & the eldest 82..we were all happy with our rooms.The entertainment team day & night were Fantastic If not the best we have ever come across.and with a nice varied list of activities.pool areas always clean as all public areas were..couple of small gripes..As hotel became busier towards end of our week..Bar queues became longer and although the food was do-able,it seemed to be catered more for the less minority foreign guests.( a very nice restaurant is nearby).We would stay here again:-<3

just returned from this hotel wc 21st may , the rooms are spotless and are cleaned every day ,bit noisey as walls are very thin and no hairdryers ,i travelled with my 6 yr old son this hotel is not child friendly , there were lots of activities but found they were mainly for adults pool volleyball etc , also no childrens menu available and the choice was limited lots of fish dishes i was told children were not allowed to get own drinks from the bar and the two guys behind the bar very rude and were actually monitoring drinks and ice creams , we had paid to go all inclusive my mother was told she was only allowed one drink when ordered two , hence the massive queque at the bar about fifteen deep ! the animation team were good and friendly enough i would not return not enough going on here for children for the barcelo chain of hotels this one is below standard
