We selected this hotel upon the following criteria; 1) accessibility for disabled people - I'm an amputee 2) an indoor pool - we were going in October and thought it might be a bit nippy, and 3) peace and quiet; I'm a boring old fart, my wife is much younger, not boring and definitely not a fart at all! Everywhere is perfectly accessible and we were put in a room with a disabled loo. The weather was 28 degrees all week so we were able to use the outdoor pool all the time. Finally there are no kids allowed in the hotel, which was great; the constant refrain about the paper thin walls is true, but we were fortunate; the hotel was fairly empty.
The staff are terrific. Nothing was too much trouble. Examples are Paola the lifeguard who came to my rescue when I was trying to extricate myself from the pool with an unco-operative pegleg, the handyman who sorted out our loo trouble with the twinkling of an eye and finally the magnificent Jenny Barreto, casually multi-lingual, massively organised who sorted things out for us before we arrived and when we were there.
The facilities are pretty good. Outdoor and indoor pools, gym, spa, nice bars (the pool bar is good - the portions are huge, the gazpacho is not bad at all). We had breakfast in the restaurant every day; the selection is almost infinite - English, Continental and American. We had dinner once. I would have to say that this is the only thing for which my praise is not fulsome. It was perfectly adequate but I think it would get a little "samey" after a very few days. There is a huge selection of very good restaurants in Santa Eularia anyway.
Finally the location. It's right on the sea although not on the beach. We had a sea view room (nobody asked us to pay 15 euros a day extra) and awoke to the most fabulous sunrises and that was enough for us. It took me 20 minutes to get to the Marina - lots of places to sit on the way, and 30 minutes to restaurant street - but don't forget I'm a pegleg. Santa Eularia is a beautiful little place if you don't want partying and noise.
I'm writing this on the balcony of our room; it's three days until we fly back to the UK and although we almost never return to places, we're planning to make an exception in the case of Sol Ibiza.
TOP TIP Book through Melia. Seems to be cheaper.
