“Our second happy stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2007

We've just returned home from our second fantastic stay at this hotel.Our first visit last year was great -hence the return-but this time was even better.Cristina and Cristoph,the owners,are so hospitable and friendly-adding a really personal touch to our holiday-always ready with suggestions for great beaches,restaurants etc.Admittedly we were staying in one of the best rooms-the bungalow suite looking out over the pool-but the whole vibe of this quiet,relaxed hotel is evident everywhere.We didn't make breakfast once this year but the staff were always happy to make us something delicious when we did eventually surface.The hotel is really a cross between a villa and a hotel-people wanting to be waited on hand and foot shouldn't really come here-it's not that sort of place,nor is it trying to be.You're pretty much left to your own devices which was perfect for us.It has an honesty bar you can help yourself to and the sweet town of San Jose-with some lovely restaurants-is a 2min walk.The location-in the middle of the island- is brilliant -everywhere is easy to get to.The hotel is beautiful to look at too-sleek and modern, with beautiful views and set in gorgeous surroundings.I would probably recommend it more to young couples who would appreciate the design aesthetic and are using it as a base rather than spending all day everyday at the hotel,altho a day lounging by the pool is a very attractive option.We are already planning our trip next year and will definitely be returning to Los Jardines de Palerm.

This is one of my favourite hotels, not just in Ibiza but anywhere in the world, which has a lot to with the fact that the owners Christophe and Cristina are so welcoming and helpful. The hotel itself is very tastefully decorated - modern but with a traditional feel. They have retained a kind of rustic charm, despite renovating the rooms and pool area in a contemporary way. This is a very peaceful hotel with such a nice atmosphere, very relaxed and quiet. Perfect for couples to get away from it all. I don't think it would be particularly suitable for children as there isn't much for them to do.
Although their is no restaurant as such, a good breakfast (cereals and bread/croissants) is included and the chef is happy to make salads/sandwiches around the pool at lunchtime at your request. There is an 'honesty bar' where you are invited to take drinks and sign for them at your own discretion. Overall this is an amazing hotel which I will certainly be going back to again. My second visit was just as good as the first 4 years ago.

I've beenn visiting Ibiza for more than 10 years, and I have to say that each time that I am coming to this island is a really big pleasure to stay back at Christophe and Cristina's Hotel ( the owners of the place ). The location, the rooms, the good taste in any corner... This place is different of all the hotels I've been staying in the Island. The bathroom in the room is big and the beds are big and very comfortable. There is no room service, but there is always somebody around to make you a sandwich or to get you anything you want. Almost a must. I specially recommend this place to all my friends and they always come back more than happy.

Located in a very cozy, charming environment , los Jardines de Palerm is incredibly rich in surprises. It is mix between design and luscious nature. Quiet and peacefull, every little corner of the hotel inspires to serenity. The rooms are perfectly kept and spacious and privacy is guarantied with an eye for detail.

As a travel agent I am used to visit quite a lot of hotels, but I have to admit that the Jardines moved me more then any others. I was warmly greeted by the owners, I had wonderfull breakfast with fresh fruits and bread, cereals, tea...., slept like a baby in soft linens, enjoyed the serenity of the pool and bar.

I strongly advice this hotel to anyone who would like to have a true confortable accomodation in Ibiza...for a memorable experience!

The hotel looks nice and the garden is beautiful. Breakfast is really good. The rooms are spartanic and the room nr. 4 is a dungeon (no windows, very small and only a door). The atmosphere is without a soul. The pools are not meant for swimming. Do not go there with children (unless they have a mute button).

We've just got back from Ibiza and stayed for four days at the Jardin de Palerme,only because every other hotel on the island was full, we spent our second day, driving around the island desperately trying to find somewhere(anywhere) with a vacancy- it was absolutely dreadful, I have rarely come across a place,especially in this price range, where the owners just don't seem to care about the guests at all, they are treated as a necessary evil to put up with.

Where do I start?We arrived at about 9:00 pm and had to drag our suitcases down seven sets of steep, dark steps,no help was offered and were shown to our "mini suite"which looked like a garage conversion,all the bed linen was the cheapest possible, the pillows were like cheap seat cushions.You can't even use the bedside lamps separately, so you can't read,without waking your partner, if you happen to wake up during the night because the bed is so damn uncomfortable

The whole hotel is a triumph of style over substance.It is very photogenic,I'm going to put some pictures up and I garauntee,people are going to say "what are you making such a fuss about?"it looks very pretty,but absolutely no thought has gone into thinking about how guests use a hotel - all the loungers are covered in white,wipe down plastic,who wants to sit in the sun on plastic?There is no indoor space that you can comfortably sit if it's raining(which it did)unless you are lying on the bed in your room.We did have a plastic lounger outside our room but it always seemed to be covered in fine black ash from the incredibly smelly bonfires burning nearby.

There is absolutely no service at all, you can't get breakfast served in your room, even a cup of coffee,it's served in the garden, pretty enough,but the meanest breakfast ever,a small bowl of cheap muesli,a small bowl of cornflakes and a small bowl of fruit-between two and a pot of yoghurt, then bread if you want it,anything else is simply not offered and anything as exotic as an egg, will cost you more- Did I mention we were being charged €270 a night for this?This will be the last you see of the staff for the day,there is no option to have lunch, let alone dinner and no service around the pool at all,there is an honesty bar where you can help yourself, which is locked at 11:00 pm.You are definitely encouraged to go elsewhere for as much time as possible,although you might decide staying around the pool is rather unpleasant anyway.

In the last two years, St. Josep has expanded from the sleepy little village it was, there are two big,new developments going up in town which creates a lot of construction noise and the road has been expanded, so you are effectively on the motorway,with the noise of cars and the large tourist coaches lumbering by all day.

The attitude of the owners is just so depressing,they just do not seem to care at all - they are completely apathetic and disinterested and to be honest I've had better service and amenities at backpacking hostels that I've stayed at.There is just no excuse for such shoddy lack of service-everybody working in the hotel seemed surly and unhappy,just gettting soap and toilet paper replaced was a battle.

The prices for what you get here are absolutely scandalous- €270 a night is just outrageous,especially when compared to hotels on the rest of the island - skip this shoddy rip off and head striaght for Can Atzaro(the best hotel on the island imho),Es Cucons,Can Lluc,Las Terrasses or if you want to stay in the area, Las Brisas (my other favourite hotel) and see some of the creativity,passion and welcome that Ibicencan hotels are capable of.Book early! as early as you can,the demand for hotel rooms is really high,especially in the summer wedding season,I started trying to book three months before we wanted to come and everywhere we wanted to stay was full, frankly I was surprised(and suspicious)that this hotel had any space-not anymore!It might survive a little longer, simply on the overflow from more popular hotels, but it can't survive long at these prices.It smacks of people who have gone into the boutique hotel business and then found out that it is harder work than they thought and that they actually have to deal with customers,they should either halve the prices(honestly, still too expensive) or start providing some service.

When we left,after dragging our suitcases back up seven flights of stairs ,no help offered and paying the enormous bill,the owner said off -handedly,"Oh well!, see you around,I suppose",if she'd bothered to ask how our stay went,I would have told her,but I doubt she would have cared.

Do not stay here. Style over substance sums it up. To put it in context they charge you extra if you have an egg for breakfast - not that they tell you that until you get the bill.

The owners don't seem to understand that in the service industry you are required to serve people. Don't expect a smile from them.
