Just returned from a 4 day break at this lovely hotel - it's hard to believe it is only 2 star. Family run and with lots of returning regulars this is a lovely recently refurbished hotel. Rooms are big, modern and bright and (ladies) there's a full length mirror and lots of coathangers!!! Each room has free aircon, ceiling fan, mini fridge & safe. There's no in room tea facilities so take a travel kettle - I'd echo what another reviewer said and take an extension lead as there's only one plug on the counter top and one in bathroom - saves on adapters too! We couldn't get wifi on the 2nd floor, but good connection in the public areas.
I think views from the higher floor would be better, but ours was OK looking over to the bay - probably better than the road side. There is a massive amount of work going on behind the hotel and it's noisy, but will be short lived and finishes by the time you're on your balcony in the evening. They are preparing the ground for the Ibiza 1,2,3 festival in July so anybody on the bayside of the hotel when it's on looks like they will get a fantastic view of the stage.
Hotel is spotlessly clean, all staff very pleasant and helpful and food very nice. Breakfast was excellent (no need to take your own teabags from home :-) ) and the evening meals varied and catering to plenty of tastes; buffet style typical of half board or all inclusive, but hot and well cooked. Only gripe is that hotel drinks are expensive, but then again everything is in San Antonio!
Location wise the hotel is ideally placed, just off the boardwalk for the sunset strip and a short leisurely stroll into the main square and west end, so it remains quiet on a night. Tip: the waste ground where they are building is a short cut straight to Cafe Mambo. A few nice pubs nearby, but in June everything goes fairly quiet about midnight. We liked Tiffanys (lovely girl who does the 'whipping in' at the door, Pub Neptuno (cheaper drinks - and strong Sangria!). Golden Buddha bar is slightly cheaper than the main sunset bars and we liked SunSeaBar too (beware the 5e premium to sit by the pool) - all the boardwalk bars are SERIOUSLY expensive, but you have to do it at least once for the experience. Rita's Cantina near to the marina is very good and reasonably priced, it's popular with the locals and is always busy when you walk past - Thai Beef Salad was delicious! Further into the main town there is a little taste of home with the Cornish Pasty Shop, which was excellent. Just up from the square, near fountains there is a restaurant called Pepe's Caribe - menu of the day is 10e for 3 courses and a drink; can highly recommend. I would say that between the hotel and the West End there is a little bit of something for everyone and I was very pleasantly surprised by San Antonio - the tv gives it a bad press!
Higher floors on the bay side would have best view and ask to be away from the lifts.
