We traded our lock-off studio in Florida for an Easter break in a two bedroom apartment in Santa Eulalia so size-wise; we were onto a good thing anyway. In spite of some poor reports for this facility, we were pleasantly surprised.
Obviously with any swap, there are pluses and minuses.
- Its a small facility, only 32 apartments, so the service is not going to be like in a huge resort. That said, the staff, when they are actually there, could not have been more pleasant and helpful.
- The grounds are very small. I could imagine it getting crowded in peak season but at this time of year there were never more than a dozen people lounging round the pool.
- Most of the suites have a great view, but if you are unlucky, a few look over a car-park. Try to avoid them when booking.
- Security could be problem. It's up to guests to ensure that the front door is locked when going in or out in the evenings.
- Bathrooms dated (Not like the Jacuzzi in our home resort)
- Furniture and fittings a little old, but serviceable.
- Not easy to find. The address in the Interval International catalogue is useless and you can't find it on Google Maps very easily. They have a map but we only got it after we arrived. We did our homework and were able to drive straight to it, after spending about 30 minutes finding it on Steetview before we left home.
- Location, location, location. The view over the marina to the sea from the third floor, we stayed, is superb.
- Location Location Location. Right next to the marina, with loads of restaurants, bars and shops within a short walking distance. Restaurants range from ridiculously cheap (€1 for wine and tapas) to quite expensive (€50 per head with three courses, aperitifs, wine, coffee and brandy)
- Although plenty of bars and restaurants, its not noisy at night.
- Nice beach a short walk away
- Playground right outside if you have kids (can be noisy if you don't like the sound of children playing)
- The nicest crockery we've ever seen in a timeshare apartment.
Santa Eulalia is a pleasant town with yachting people and families being the majority of the visitors. It's a far cry from the fleshpots of St Antonio on the other side of the Island. It’s a great base for exploring, the quiet villages and coves of East Ibiza. We would have no hesitation in coming back some time.
