“Clean and good location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2013 via mobile

This hotel was chosen for its location more than anything. The rooms were also clean and beds were reasonably comfortable.

The breakfast was however horrendous and I managed the croissants (get them early), and the fried eggs. The bacon looked revolting, as did the rest.

I will also credit the staff with trying very hard to entertain guests during a brief storm.

If you are planning a 3-4 day break with friends, this place is fine but if you want something with a bit of luxury, this is not your place!

Arrived home on Friday after a lovely week at playa real. Fantastic location, as our party of 4 (aged. 23, 27, 34 & 45) wanted to be away from the crowds in the daytime and easy travel to the clubs at night. Staff great, food great, room spacious, decor tired, good pool right next to the beach, sports & entertainments if you want it, kayaking. All inclusive drinks til 11pm (def recommend as drinking in the clubs is VERY expensive) Bus stop outside hotel into town or a 30 min walk. Disco bus from San Antonio drops u back at Pascha which is 15 mins walk away. All in all great hotel, would def return next year.

This is a clean friendly budget hotel, fairly basic breakfast but there was fresh fruit, the front desk staff cannot do enough to help you with bookings, informations and any questions you have. They were a pleasure to deal with.
It was quiet at night, probably nicer to be in an upper floor with a beach side view of some sort, and it is adjacent to a variety of beach side restaurants with easy access to ibiza town so a good location for getting about.

Room Tip: 2nd floor with a sea view

All staff helpful and pleasant; food was varied and good and hotel clean
location is lovely UNLESS you want shops and lots of bars but if its a chilling week in the sun then you wont be disappointed.
very easy to get into gorgeous Ibiza town (bus outside hotel every hour on the half hour and reliable 2 euro) or 10 euro in cab or walk in 35mins
yes carpets are very tired (why not tiles?) but bathrooms nice.
Good value hotel
travelled 27th august group of 7, ages 55 to 18 probably not enough going on for the younger members

Room Tip: all rooms seem to have sea view some have 2 bathrooms and 4 beds ask if you need that

I have just come back from the playa real hotel and felt compelled to write a fair review!!

The location is great talamanca is a very quiet resort with a few lovely beach bars and restaurants!! Ten minutes deive from the airport and same for ibiza town!!overall we were really happy with the location as we wanted to relax in the day and head to a few clubs by night!! We were within walking distance of pacha and privelege!!

The beach is nice not to busy and shallow water...there seemed to be a little seaweed washed up due to a storm we had whilst there bt this couldn't be helped...no one has control over the weather or what is washed up onto the beach!!!

Rooms were spacious and clean...a little dated bt they were fine for what we wanted!!

The food was average we found there was plenty of choice for meat eaters bt not so much for vegetarians, however we all did find something to eat every day and this was not really an issue for us as we did the all inc option mainly for the drinks as we knew beforehand that this would be expensive in other places we wanted to visit!!!

The staff at the hotel all seemed very nice especially the animation team and mar the lady who runs all the activities was lovely!!!

Overall for what we paid I feel we had a bargain holiday for the time of year and would definatly visit this hotel again!!!
The new harbour club beach/restaurant down the road was also a great little place for good food and wine!!

Clubs very nice and the atmosphere amazing

We were a bit wary having read the reviews but just back this weekend from a fab break here. Yes the hotel is a bit tired and in need of updating up it was very clean both internally and out. It is literally on the beach with easy access to a boardwalk which takes you along in to Talamanca itself with some nice bars along the way. Yes it is quieter but that was nice - if you want a party hotel then book one! The staff were by friendly and helpful with nothing too much trouble. The hotel has a lovely vibe, very relaxed and chilled. Food was ok and yes there were chips ( previous review said there wasn't ) but generally good and a good variety so something for everyone. Again, if you want fine dining, book a hotel whose price reflects that. I'd go back here in a shot, it was great value for the money spent. I reckon that some of the grumpy reviews on here are people who have unrealistic expectations.

Room Tip: If you want a sea view ask for one.
