We paid £190 for 7 nights up to 26th. (See booking.com for the pictures I am refering to in this review.) There are 2 blocks and by far the best is the front "Azul" block - (pic #8 just right of centre,) with 8 balconied front facing rooms (#5, #6, #7,) & unrivaled views of the "small" beach and bay. The lower ones are directly above the chinese restaraunt, (#9.) 3 more have inland views, maybe 8 others with no balconies, (#11, #12). The small pool (#14) sits within the small restaurant terrace. All the pics were of this block (clever that) except #3. The rear block has 36 units, all but 6 are forward facing, some 2, some 4 bed. Upper floors offer better views but put you on a level with the noisy kids club next door. Yes - this area is in need of a make over. PLUS POINTS - We DID have the pool to ourselves most of the week. There IS a coke machine and internet at reception. The kitchen & bathroom were reasonable but NOT the ones in photos #4, #9, #10, #13, #16. The beds weren't THAT bad and the cooker and fridge ARE new-ish. MINUS POINTS - There IS a TV but it's all in Spanish (surprise) AND it sticks out of the wall at just the right height for decapitation during your midnight leak. There IS a safety deposit box but they haven't got the key. Many bulbs did not work. The ceiling fan was pants until we found the reverse button on the side - (Anti-clockwise = Down-draft !) The sheets & towels were not changed all week. I could've done with one of those plastic coffee "cones" or a cafetierre. Also, a crossbow would've been handy, particularly the 23rd time I heard the same day-glo rep shout - "Who wants to do a karaoke quiz boys and girls !" CONCLUSIONS - We had concerns about the 2nd ash cloud and some flights were disrupted, but not us. The biggest wild fire in Ibiza's history kicked off a couple of miles away and yes, there was smoke, but we were leaving anyhow. I honestly thought it was about right for the money. FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS - Caballito Del Mar (better when the hotel cabaret next door isn't kicking off !) Also El Puerto round at Paradise Beach. EXCURSIONS - If you've got a car then Cala Sant Vincent is very pleasant and San Eularia's got bigger supermarkets and a nice promenade. Dalt Villa is very historic. We took the car to San Antonio for an overnight stop. (Cheap hotel Del Mar only 31 Euros). Prices here are noticeably cheaper for food and booze. We did the sunset at Cafe Mambo / Cafe Del Mar (pricey) - and watched hen & stag groups staggering their wy round the "West End" - Just the ONE night of madness for us then !
