Aldea Bonsai
Reviewed 24 September 2012

1 bed Apartment very basic & would hate to have accommodate 4 persons. Reasonably clean throughout but whole resort gave off impression that it was on its last legs! Standard of upkeep in general areas poor, cracked & broken tiling & slabs everywhere. Although apartment was cleaned before arrival the AC was not working and took 2 days to get fixed.

Very little of worth in Siesta but short walk across bridge takes you to Santa Eularia proper where there are plenty of restaurants & cafes along the promenades and in town.

Would recommend trip to Santa Gertrudis only 15 mins away by car in the middle of the island, nice town square & excellent restaurants.

I do not know if this can happen in any hotel, but we had never seen before. The resort full of cockroaches, dozens of cockroaches all areas. Tremendous. The resort lacks minimum services, there are no toilets in public areas, a bar that worked, but which is now closed, cleaning the hallways outside the apartments is extremely short: spend a week and are filled with the fruits that fall from the trees, it is even dangerous to risk of slips and falls and housekeeping only properly maintained areas are.
Very attentive workers cleaning and maintenance of the interior of the apartments, though not receiving workers. In particular, the mornings are throughout their day on the phone. I tried for several months by telephone contact with the resort, and it was impossible, because he is always busy talking to the receptionist. Being housed there was always found that using the phone, making it impossible to contact from outside.very hot in the rooms as there is only air conditioning in one of them. I do not know if we'll stay there again

Great location just a short walk over the bridge and you are in Santa Eulalia and next to the beach. I have stayed in the same apartment which is rented out by Aldea Bonsai for the last six years, it is always clean and has all the appliances and equipment you need for a wonderful holiday. It is a quiet and relaxing complex, and I would recommend it to anyone.

Hi I was very disapointed in Aldea Bonsai the apartment was very basic, only cleaned weekly, rough towels and the fridge placed directly opposite toilet (only a door seperating them) very poor design! The pool area was very nice and pretty but tiles on walkways chipped and broken and dirty was not swept when we were there. Position good for st eualia and beach our terrace was overgrown I trimmed overhaning foilage but it was never cleared away- on the whole could be lovely but not cared for

Room Tip: dont go with rci there were better appartments but we were not allocated one of these when we enquir...

Hi I stay in a beautiful private apartment in this complex and have done for many years. The apartment is rented out through Aldea Bonsai and not RCI. The apartments is well maintained and quiet with a nice garden area. The property had all the appliances you could want and i would not hesitate it recommending it to anyone. The pool is really nice and the location is perfect for getting to the beach or strolling into santa eulalia

Excellent location in Siesta, just over a little bridge to Santa Eulalia. The complex is large, but not in a typical sky scaper hotel style. Small apartments in a lovely landscaped environment.

Nearby there are lots of restaurants, bars and the beach is less than 5 minutes by foot.

For a quiet relaxing stay and to see Ibiza outside the San Antonio parties - this is ideal.

We exchanged our timeshare through RCI as we had stayed at the resort before. We won't go back. The apartments are ok just basic (no electric kettle), half a kitchen being 2 rings on a hob. The main reception is no longer for RCI guests it is for a maintenance company called Aldea Siesta who maintain and rent out apartments for owners. RCI have a very small office in the building. Did not find the receptionist that was there during the day at all helpful. There are owners there who have dogs (not that we had a problem with that) but one day we both ended up with dogs dirt on our shoes.
Our plane was late and we arrived at our apartment 30 mins late (10.30p.m.) and had to pay 40 euros for a late check in plus 20euros for water. We were told that RCI insist on this charge which we were not told about. The apartments that are owned there are not the best with blankets and lots of things on their balconies. The stairs to the upper apartments are dire the one we had to use was a spiral staircase and you could had to put your case in front of you to get up the stairs.
