“Perfect Holiday, the girls in the bar are stars”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

My wife and I have returned from a 2 week holiday staying at the Can Sanso and I have to say we were very impressed. I have been reading the other reviews as they have come in over the past months and I can only echo the positive remarks about this place.

We arrived quite late at around 10pm, as we stepped off the coach there was a lovely smiling young lady who welcomed us and took us to our room, this set the tone of the holiday. What friendly, helpful, lovely people the staff are.

The apartment was nice and big and spotlessly clean. Towels were changed every other day and the apartment cleaned too. Nice big balcony with a lounger, a table with 3 chairs and a rack to dry clothes/beach towels on.

We found the location perfect, I think any closer to the town would've been too noisy. We enjoyed the stroll it's flat and well lit at night. However there is a bus stop about 20 yards from the front of the apartments which some of the elderly less mobile people used to catch into town.

We ate at lots of places, on the marina and on 'restaurant row'. The food was more or less the same everywhere but the prices could double depending on the place we chose, so read the menu boards outside to prevent over paying for the same meal you'll get cheaper elsewhere. We had a few meals at the apartments, these were as good as or better than we got in town to be honest.

A lot of the people who were staying had been before and it's easy to see why they go back. We have never gone back to the same place again but we definitely will go back to Can Sanso,

We had a great family holiday at the Can Sanso apartments. This was our first trip abroad, we travelled with our two daughters aged 14 months and 5 years.

We were so impressed by the size of the two bedroom apartment including the balcony, it was massive! I thoroughly recommend opting for a self catering holiday if you are travelling with small children. The fact that you’re not cooped up in a hotel room and can structure your day around your family rather than being tied to a hotel for meal times etc. The apartments are basic and traditionally styled but they were cleaned to such a high standard. Our apartment was perfect location wise as it was ground floor and facing the pool. This was ideal as my husband could take our eldest to the pool and I stayed in the apartment whilst the youngest slept. Because we were so close to the pool I didn’t feel secluded and was nice to be able to watch as they played. There was a certain degree of noise nigh time when there was entertainment in the bar however because our children (and us) were so tired from the days activities, it didn’t affect us. Also you have to consider that you may be out exploring the town in the evening and would miss the noise. Either that or get yourself to the bar and join in.

After reading lots of the reviews before and after our trip there isn’t much else I can say only to reiterate that the staff makes Can Sanso what it is. They work tirelessly to maintain the grounds and to make you feel welcome. We were particularly fond of Marta who works in the bar as she was so sweet and made a real effort with our girls.

Food wise, the bar serves simple dishes that are good if you don’t fancy venturing into town. Make sure you check out La Fontana on the beach front as this is a restaurant not to be missed. Like the other reviews state, there is a big supermarket minutes away from your apartment for those looking to get the basics in.

The nicest thing about this place is the atmosphere; both my husband and I commented on how friendly all the other guests were. Everyone said hello or stopped to see how your holiday was going. Our daughter made friends with another little girl which was lovely. One family we spent time with said that they were on their fifth holiday to Can Sanso and we could see why. We wouldn’t hesitate to go back as you’d be guaranteed a fab holiday. We were sad to leave and felt seven days just wasn’t enough.

Must say that yes there is a walk into town however you can join the promenade after 10 minutes walking, from there it is a picturesque walk along the harbour into town. This was fine even with our five year old on foot however some evenings it felt like a trek especially if you’d been into town during the day and then wanted to head back in the evening; please don’t let this put you off though. Trust me, the walk was needed after all the nice meals we had! We would have got a taxi back if our youngest was older however the lack of car seat was an issue for us.

Avoid the coastal path at all costs, we were disgusted at the amount of dogs mess, I have never seen so much in one area. It’s such a shame as the area is quite pretty however we had to abandon the coastal path as there was simply too much to avoid.

We will look back on this holiday with nothing but fond memories, we’re still talking about in even though we’ve been back a few weeks.

Can Sanso we love you, keep up the good work and we’ll hopefully see you again soon. You deserve all the great reviews.

Thank you for the memories.

Just got back from a week's stay at the C'an Sanso Apartments.

There isn't a reception as such but anything you need, you can find at the bar where you'll be met by very helpful and pleasant staff. They were all so lovely.

I went with my boyfriend and his parents. I think the place itself was a bit too quiet for us. The walk to Santa Eulalia is about 15 minutes and there you'll find lots of restaurants but not many bars.

We did venture by taxi to Es Canar but unfortunately the heavens opened and it poured down with rain so we ended up in a bar and didn't end up seeing much of the place but it seemed a lot more lively.

I would definitely go back to the C'an Sanso Apartments, it was just a little quiet for us with regards to nightlife and bars nearby.

I would recommend the sunset boat trip. Absolutely gorgeous and a bargain at 29 euros each.

By the way, if you need a supermarket, at the bottom of the road turn left. We turned right where it said supermarket and it turned out to be smaller than our bedroom!

Room Tip: We were in 201 and it overlooked the road. It was a little noisy for us at night.

Extremely clean tidy airy rooms, though we did change as the first one we were given was on the road which was a bit like trying to sleep on the M4!! The staff are really friendly and do everything they can to make your stay great. The apartments are a 15 - 20 min easy walk to town. Only a couple of good restaurants nearby. The pool and pool area are extremely small but clean and tidy with lovely gardens. All in all a good stay :-)

Just returned from 2 weeks at Can Sanso. Great appartments, exceptionally clean and tidy. The staff are all really friendly and "spot Roger" the night watchman became a regular event, this man is a really happy bloke. No complaints and would happily return

Stayed 1 week at Can Sanso apt's and could of stayed longer, travelled with 3 kids of 12, 9 and 3yrs. very friendly welcome even though late at night, 2 bed apartment was roomy and kept very clean, lovely gardens and again pool area and playarea spotless. 15 min walk to marina provided us with plenty of choice for eating out , but also restaurant at apt's was very good . First time in Ibiza and if we return we would certainly return to the Can Sanso.

Room Tip: ground floor room with terrace overlooking pool great for families
