This property is GORGEOUS and a wonderful value for the price. It does have a very romantic feel to it, but I would still recommend it to travelling friends, as the island of Ibiza is not very large, and beautiful beaches and the town, restaurants, and clubs are just a short taxi ride away -- this is not just for the romantically involved. Everything was very clean and the service was above and beyond. Everything I ate was divine, and there are orange trees on the property -- the oranges are picked fresh to make your breakfast marmelade and also used in creative mixed drinks. You can either hang out at the pool or take a ride to a beach (I believe Cala Tarida is closest, but there are many others, if you are willing to take a cab). Cala Tarida is walking distance (probably 30 min) through the pine roads, but if you decide to walk, ask for directions first -- my friend and I went the wrong way and foolishly continued forth after seeing a 'Cuidado Perros' sign -- if you see this sign, you have gone the wrong way, and you will encounter dogs. We were rescued by a friendly stranger. Note that on the Can Xuxu property, there are 2 very lovable dogs, Jackie and Loca. They are darlings and you can play catch with them, if you like. I very highly recommend the outdoor 60 minute balinese massage for 70 Euro -- maybe the best massage of my life. Lastly, the owner and host, Alexandre, is extremely helpful and gives great recommendations -- it was a pleasure being his guest. Oh, 1 other thing, if you plan on heading out way after hours, either arrange ahead of time for a taxi, or spend the 3 Euro to invest in a sim card, because our room didn't have a phone. Overall, I highly recommend Can Xuxu and would definitely return. It is a bit off the beaten path, but it is way nicer than any hotels that you will find on the beaches and taxis are reasonably priced.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- CAN XUXU is..........An address to be whispered among friends. Can Xuxu was a Finca acquired by my family 20 years ago which gently and slowly evolved into what is today. Can Xuxu is today one of the most hip and stylish villa around the island, combining comfortable luxury with modern, ethnic and Mediterranean flair. After 20 years of enjoying the unique laid back Ibiza style with my friends, I realized it was the lifestyle that I was dreaming of. Now I share the wealth with my friends...-Alexandre Narakas Atmosphere and StyleOriginally build in the 19th century, Can Xuxu is situated on one hectare on the hillside of a landscaped, luscious tropical garden and has been entirely restored. The property kept its original flavor, a beautiful combination of Ibizencan style and ethnic modern Asian touches that create a unique harmony. All around the property you can see one of a kind pieces that I brought back from my many trips around the world. The Finca is an oasis of peace and tranquility, where the scents of orange blossom, rosemary and lavender blend to indulge your senses. The Finca has rooms with private terraces, suites with chill out corners with sea view. It is the perfect alternative with the vibes of a villa with luxury services. LocationCan Xuxu is located on a hill, on the Westside of the island near San Jose village, 2 km away from some of the most beautiful beaches of Ibiza with a magnificent view of the island of Conejera and the sunset. The Finca is only 20 minutes away from downtown Ibiza and 15 minutes from the local airport. ... more less
