The north of the island of Ibiza is really pretty, and this hotel built into the hills on Puerto San Miguel takes advantage of that. The views from the pool and restaurant are lovely.
The hotel is all-inclusive and the food is pretty good, especially at dinner time. We were there for a week with different dinner options available every day, including a vegetarian option each day a creperie set up one night and a fish stand another as well as the usual buffet of stews and curries and meat/chips/veg. There's a lot to choose from at breakfast as well.
The chinese restaurant food is quite nice, but with having to pre-book the day before, arrive for a particular dining spot and then being shut in the restaurant, just for a chinese buffet, personally I preferred eating in the main restaurant most of the time although you can book for the chinese as many evenings as you want.
We went as a young couple and although the resort is geared at families we didn't feel left out. There's plenty to do on site but we hired a car and explored the island a lot of the time. The canoeing is fun though - the half hour slots mean you can just explore a little then get back to your spot on the beach.
The cocktails are best at the main bar by the pool - downstairs at the saloon bar they are more hit and miss. Also the ice creams are excellent at this main bar, with a different offering downstairs at the saloon. I can't comment on the food from the tapa tapa bar as we didn't eat there due to the lack of vegetarian offering and it generally looking a bit uninspiring! If you want proper spanish tapas I'd go elsewhere, this looked more like canapes to me.
All the staff were friendly and welcoming, our apartment was clean and the air con worked wonderfully, all of which contributed to a relaxing stay.
We bought our holiday through First Choice and I think it was great value - this is a lovely location with enough activities to amuse you between sunbathing sessions and most people will feel well catered for.
