I have just stayed at this hotel (11/06/2012-18/06/2012), I could not recommend it more. I stayed at this hotel 10 years ago as a 15 year old on a family holiday and can say that the hotel has certainly changed, for the better.
The refurbishment has been completed to a very high specification, the public areas have been designed in a modern sleek style and offer free Wi-Fi in the bar/reception area with plenty of seating. I stayed in a standard room which was nicely decorated with wooden flooring a big flat screen TV, two large twin beds pushed together to form a massive double bed with a free safe and fridge to use in the room. The bathroom was decorated to a high standard with a walk-in shower with a massage function included as well as a decent hair dryer next to the large mirror.
I travelled on this holiday with my parents, my partner and my sister and her partner. It was the first time I have stayed in an adult only hotel and really enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere throughout the day and the more adult orientated entertainment at night that didn’t need to be cheesy for the children. Throughout the day around the pool music was played, varying from popular current music to chill out and on some days a live acoustic act played in the afternoon which was a very nice touch. The daytime entertainment provided by the two members of the entertainment team, Oscar and Veronica, was just the right balance with regards to being enough, it included a darts, pool, table tennis, French boules and shuffle board tournaments, with different activities on different days. Unlike other hotels I have stayed in the entertainment team provided activities but never pushed you into doing anything and nothing seemed too much for them. The evening entertainment varied from live bands and solo artists singing various genres to acrobatics and drag acts among others.
My party decided to upgrade to the drinks package offered by Thomson and certainly got our monies worth. I notice that some people have commented about it being misleading. It is not a traditional all inclusive package but an upgrade to a drinks package which includes local spirits, beers, and wines as well as soft drinks. We found it useful not having to get money out constantly to pay for drinks. Lunch is not included but there is a small shop just outside the hotel where for about 3-4 euro you can purchase a freshly made sandwich, or you could fill up on breakfast and not need lunch.
With regards to food, the breakfast is plentiful with both hot and cold breakfast on offer every day with fried eggs and omelettes being cooked fresh to order by a chef. We stayed at the hotel for 7 nights and not once did I see the same main course on offer in the evening, with the restaurant offering a different theme from a different country on most nights. There is an a la carte restaurant that can be booked at NO extra cost the night before you wish to dine there. In my opinion this was the only part of the holiday that was a bit of a let-down, we had issues with some of the dishes we ordered and the waiters could have been better however this may have been a one off as most other people we spoke to seemed to really enjoy the experience and I would say that it has been decorated to a very high standard, giving a very nice atmosphere.
In summary the Hotel has been refurbished to a high standard, the Staff are very attentive and the hotel is very clean. The food is of a very high standard and the atmosphere of the hotel is nice and relaxing. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this hotel and would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice relaxing holiday in the Ibiza sun and would gladly stay there again, and to put anyone’s mind at rest, there is no sign of any building work taking place and the area of the hotel that suffered the collapse has been well finished and you wouldn't realise what had happened.
