We are two families travelling in July, with kids ranging from 20 months, 11, 13, 18, to 20 years!
We have been going back and forth between Cala d'or in Majorca and resorts in Ibiza, and have recently discovered the Royal Beach Apartments in Playa d'en Bossa to rent through the White-Ibiza website.
Playa d'en Bossa is not necessarily my resort of choice (too busy perhaps), however the high end apartment style is what caught my attention (it seems most hotels are really outdated in most resorts?)
I have a few questions:
1) is Playa d'en Bossa a good area for young children? They keep referring to the resort as a club resort and that makes me nervous!
Even though we don't mind a good (grownup) vibey place, we definitely don't want to be in a club area.
2) Is it safe to book through the White-Ibiza site? I only have an email thread as reference, and they want me to pay the full amount 30 days before arrival? Is this normal practice in Ibiza? Has anyone dealt with Christian's from www.clubpibiza.com?
3) Is the beach in front of this apartment block nice, and is the water clear? And is the beach easily accessible from the block?
4) What other area do you know of that has this sort of high end apartment, but perhaps in a less vibey area? Maybe something on the south-west coast?
We are after crystal clear water, a nice beach or little cove (doesnt have to be a long stretch of sand necessarily) , some village life and restaurants around us.
We will have a car for the entire time so we will be able to discover the island on a daily basis.
Would you say Playa d'en Bossa fulfills our needs and will serve as a good base?
Thank you in advance!
