Just returned from Ibiza staying at the Can Sanso for 1 week with my partner and my kids (14 & 11).
This is an excellent self catering complex. The staff are hard working, friendly and helpful, the rooms are spacious, clean, comfortable and have everything you need, including balconies with table/chairs and a sun lounger, air con is payable locally (€20 per week). The pool is a decent size and we never had any issues getting loungers at any time of the day. The pool bar offers a great choice of food and drink at good prices, and the food is good standard. My only slight negative would be the location, but only if you're allocated a room which looks onto the main road which leads into Santa Eulalia centre and to Es Cana, as we did. The traffic noise from 5-6am can be annoying if you're a light sleeper. Other than that, its a 10-15 min walk along to the marina/esplanade, and unlike some other reviews, the walk is along a safe enough on a proper footpath. Its only less than 5 mins walk down to Babylon Beach, but this is a rocky area, no sand until you're along at the main esplanade. Santa Eulalia itself is a beautiful resort, loads of bars and restaurants to chose from. "Restaurant Street" has some fine dining places, as well as reasonably priced indian and far east restaurants that offer set price meals. On the sea front and marina area the restaurants along here are less "fancy" but still offer great food. We hired a jeep for the day (€95) and went around the island, up to Cala San Vincente and Portinax and down to San Antonio and then Ibiza Town. We returned to Ibiza Town one night on the bus (€2 each one way) for shopping and dinner and id highly recommend this, its a stunning place! We had a fantastic meal down near the marina in the old part of the town and the shops will equal anywhere, return taxi was €30.
This was our first time in Ibiza and I'm glad we chose it, so much more to it than San Antonio and the club scene, its a stunning island, unfortunately didn't have the time to visit Formentera so we'll hopefully go back sometime. Would def stay at the Can Sanso again, its great value for money and I've stayed at worse 4* hotels. Also, as they don't offer a late check-out, we used the courtesy room, which is great, 4 private shower/toilet rooms and a seating area and you can have access all day (you're given your own key). Its no wonder this place gets such good reviews on Trip Advisor, its well deserved, and we are quite picky!
