“Great hotel, great animation team”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Just got to say the animation team were superb, got to especially mention Adrienn and Valentina from the kids club as they were so brilliant with my daughter that she was so sad to leave, even had more tears at home as she wouldn't see them again.

Food was good, though lunch seemed more geared for the seafood lover which I ain't.

Rooms were clean, we had a small issue when we checked in, in that when booking we requested 2 twin rooms and 1 double, we got 3 double, but this was quickly dealt with, with no fuss.

Would certainly recommend it.

Situated a little far from everywhere. Take it if you don't want a nightlife daily. Lots of families with children. Taxi from airport would be 35 euros. There is a bus stop with buses going to Eivissa and Sant Antoni. Also there is a discobus (departure at midnight and return at 4am) to go to clubs. Stayed there for 9 days in july. As for 2 stars the room was nice. Comfortable beds, air conditioned, clean bathroom. No insects were observed during our stay. Staff were friendly and ready to help. That's true that there are lot of italians but animators and staff do their best to satisfy all the nationalities. The beach is just 50 meters downstairs from hotel, it is good but I think 9 euros/day for "chaiselongue" is too much. So we didn't take it.
Some people here consider the animation as horrible. I would say that it depends. When it's something prepared by the animators - yes. But sometimes they invite professionals (as this was with parrots and magic show during our stay). Then it's very good.

Room Tip: The animation sometimes is too loud in the night (if the room is near the main pool, it would be imp...

We have just arrived from a short break at Hotel Club Cala Tarida. It is a very basic but clean hotel, and it has air conditioning which is a must in August. Our towels were changed and room tidied every day. We had no complaints at all, the only thing that may bother people is the music from the entertainment downstairs, as this is very loud. However it stops around 12.30pm I think, and we were usually out later than that anyway. It is also close to the beach and some nice restaurants (we were self-catering so cannot comment on the food).

If you are looking for a nice and CHEAP place to eat nearby, I recommend Rincon de Tarida (just on the other side of the carpark outside the hotel). This place has very nice food and very reasonably priced, which is difficult to find in Ibiza.

We were also very lucking with parking. This beach gets very busy as it is very nice, and there are buses which run daily bringing more tourists also. The car park was full every day, however we managed to get a parking space every time.

I would definitely recommending hiring a car, as once you leave the area, there is nothing for miles. and not even a pavement to walk along once you get onto the road. It depends what type of holiday you are looking for, if you just want to relax on a lovely beach this is the place. If you want more life during the day etc, then either hire a car or try somewhere else.

We had a great time at this hotel and would definitely go back!

Room Tip: Maybe ask for a room further away from the main entertainment (near the kids pool), although I think...

We have just returned from a two week holiday at this hotel and I have to say this hotel is a little gem. The accommodation is a 2 star and it was basic but our room was cleaned everyday with as many clean towels as you wanted. We did get a sea view room but being on the ground floor we didn't get a great view but it didn't attract from the service that we got. The staff were fantastic and we took part in lots of activities considering that most of the holiday makers were itailian and all the staff spoke english. The food was first class and the pasta and fish was out of this world. Although the hotel is remote there are a few beach bars that have the relaxed chill out feel. My daughter aged 6 years went to the mini club and was looked after by a lady called valentine who was brill. The beach is a gem and I will recommend this holiday that is so cheap especially during the 6 weeks holiday when prices are really high. Thanks for a great holiday

Room Tip: The family rooms are on the ground floor without a sea view. But top floor rooms got a better view f...

Please please think carefully before you book this dreadful depressing place. We booked this hotel after being let down by alpharooms the night before we were due to fly. There was very little to choose from so we had to split our week and had 4 lovely days self catering in Santa Eulalia and then a taxi transfer to the prison camp! I know this hotel is only 2 stars but they charged us £600 for 3 nights AI and it was absolutely dreadful. I will try to list the problems we found so that readers can decide for themselves if it is for them or not.

No free wifi, huge costs
Payable water machines in reception
No lounges or relaxing sitting areas
Payable massage chairs, fruit machines, pinball machines taking up what little room they had
Pool area small and surrounded by brick walls ( camp abstain would be more appealing )
About 4 plastic tables to sit at next to pool for drinks and evening also
Outside seating area for dinner was next to pool and bar.
Ashtrays full everywhere
Rooms very basic and walls paper thin
Please be aware the beach is very nice but down many many steep steps with no toilet facilities or bar/food there. There is nothing in the surrounding area apart from private apartments and another couple of hotels. The only Godsend for us was to escape the prison and spend the evening in the chillout reggee bar on the way to beach. On return to the camp the music was deafening with about 6 people milling about but the operator enjoying his own racket! Numerous people complained as they had little kids trying to sleep. The staff didn't care and just shrugged their shoulders. I spent all night crying and have never felt so miserable on holiday. Needless to say we checked out in the morning, took the service bus to Ibiza town and spent our remaining 2 nights in a fantastic apartment next to the beach. Just to finish, we have travelled in this country and abroad extensively for the last 30 years staying in private apartments, hotels, allinclusives, camping etc and this one tops the lot for the worst experience ever.
You have been warned!

The hotel was ok but a bit dated, food was really good with lots of choice. The entertainment was first class and the entertainment staff were incredibly hard working especially Erica who did most of the fitness classes, but they were all very friendly and lots of choices of entertainment. This made the holiday for us as we had taken three teenagers with us ,especially as the resort is very small .It was very important to have lots of things to do, even small children were very well catered for with shows every night for children and adults .
I would highly recommend this hotel just for the entertainment alone.

Had a fantastic holiday,lovely little hotel brilliant food and very clean, the beach is beautiful only a 2 min walk although down some steps it was well worth it.We took the bus into San Antonio at 2.90 euro each the cost of a taxi was under 20.00 euros so that was good,I am so glad we chose to stay where we did with my 16 year old daughter after visiting san antonio even my daughter said I would not want to stay here.
The only down side to this hotel was the bar shutting at 11 and some times the bar staff were hard to understand but we got there, reception staff very helpful and the animation team were also so friendly and came and spoke every day asking if we were ok ,I especially liked sitting round the pool and in the morning and afternoon being served fresh tropical fruit right up to your sun bed pure bliss, would most defiantly stay at thus hotel again.
