Hostal Apolo
Reviewed 24 June 2013

I visited in June 2013 as part of the 18 - 30s holiday. The hotel itself is okay, very basic but clean. Definately worth requesting a balcony room though!!!
The staff in the hotel itself were fine but the reps are out for 3 things only, sex, alcohol and your money!! Be warned, after a long journey, they pounce on you before youve even had chance to unpack, selling you a weeks worth of bar crawls, boat trips and parties . . . . DO NOT FALL FOR IT!! get your tickets from the touts by the beach instead!
Once the reps have got your money they dont care about you. The 'bar crawls' consisted of 3 pubs, wow! I could of organised a better one in my sleep. They also tell you theres several 2 hour 1 euro bars, or similar offers to this . . . where??

I would of had a much better time going off doing my own thing each night than feeling like I had to do these trips because I had pre paid for them.
All in a all a good trip, I would return to the hotel, but definately NOT buy the package from the reps.

it was my groups first ever club 18-30 holiday. So we did not know what to expect. A lot of our friends had warned us Ibiza was very expensive. HOWEVER this is what we found.

Your welcome meeting is done on your immediate arrival in your room. Its a great deal. DO NOT MISS OUT!

Rooms
Basic however clean and comfortable. if you like a cool room pay to have air con as the evenings can be abit muggy. We had a nice bathroom each. Room was cleaned 3 times a week.

Breakfast.
Was a continental breakfast which was toast / rolls ham and cheese with jams. Tea and Coffee.
However in and around the resort you can get a full English breakfast for as little as 5 euros.

Bar
Has some fantastic staff epically Carmen the cocktails are awesome and strong. Try the cocktail challenge 4 euros each. I was extremely drink at number 10 of 20. Serves great food and not to expensive. Pizzas 6 euros begets with various fillings 3 - 4 euros. Drinks are again reasonably priced beer starts at 2.5 euros and cider 3 -4 euros and so on. Shots between 3 - 5 euros.
Really great choice of drinks here. Great place to start.

Reception
Make sure you have your 50 euro deposit ready will make your check in quicker. again Staff are great and you can also leave your passports and when you go out your keys.
If your on a later / early morning flight late check out is 25 euro subject to availability.
Various other services here like safes (by reception) and laundry service from 7 euros. However they do not do whites.

Pool
A great deep pool. loungers and balls left in the pool for all to use. Yes other guests reserve lounges however there was 6 of us and we always got loungers. HINT: The loungers on the left side of the pool get the most sun. There right side which has tables is in the shade in the morning. The little pool is nice to dip your feet in have a drink and chat with your mates and other holiday makers.

The Reps
This hotel has a number of reps. They do a great package for 199 euros this gives you 6 days of events. SEE PICTURES. Great value and great fun especially the sunset cruise.
Chris, Matt, Gary, Jade, Jamie and Blair made our holiday amazing. Get involved with them and they will make your holiday awesome.

Outside the hotel there is a spar and asupermarket. If you like drinks in your room it is really cheap in there!!!!

Eating out subject to your eating habits is nicely priced.
breakfast from 5 - 9 euros
Lunch from 6 - 13 euros
dinner from 6 - 22 euros.

IBIZA GETS EXPENSIVE IF YOU GO TO THE HUGE MAJOR CLUBS EVERY NIGHT.
San Antonio Bay and west end has a huge variety of bars. Shots from 2 euros and drinks from 3 euros.

Definitely going to return.

Can not wait.

Thank you CLUB 18-30

First of all we arrived and were greeted by our friendly Club 18-30 reps and polite hotel staff. Had to pay a 50euro deposit (which you get back once you leave, if the room is not damaged in any way) We got to our room, which was small and basic but very clean and ideal for what you need in Ibiza. The rep who gave us a personal welcome meeting was polite and sorted our week for events for 165 euros (which got into clubs/bars and onto boat partys etc with discounted 1euro bars and a few free drinks) They had good local knowledge and the overall experience of the holiday with the events were great so if you do book the events then they are worth the money! Hotel décor was a little dated and would have been nice to have air con included without having to pay an extra fee. The maids cleaned the room almost every other day so you constantly had clean towels etc. All staff friendly and happy to help, whether it being the reception staff or the bar staff (who seemed to work 16 hours a day). The price in the bar were competitive and the food was very nice, it has all the stuff you need (burgers,pizza, and full breakfast). The breakfast you get included with the cost of hotel was basic, bread, butter, jam, cheese and ham with tea/coffee machine and a toaster but most didnt seem to be up in time for it anyway. The pool area is always busy during the day so make sure your up early to get yourself a sun lounger. It can be noisy at 4/5am when people come back and having partys but it is expected in Ibiza, just dont expect a quiet night! Location wasnt too bad as only 10 min walk to a few smaller clubs (linekers, plastik, pukka up) and food places, and a further 5 min to the west end. The beach is around Linekers and isnt massive but always seems to be plenty space.

Room Tip: Ask for a sunny balcony and pool view, other views arent great!

The only reason we picked this hotel was FOR THE AIR CON and we were prepared to pay for it but we didn't even have the option.. i think this should be made more clear! We did hire a fan but it was just so hot and sticky in the room getting ready in the evening that it barely did anything! We were in room 1 on the ground floor with no balcony so nowhere to hang wet towels! There was only 1 mirror in the room which was in the bathroom with no plug near it.. (not good if you have 2 girls sharing but we got on with it.) it should also be made more clear that you have to pay a deposit, (i was prepared for this but the girl i shared with and a lot of other people had no idea.

When we went out in the evening we were advised to leave our room key at reception. We thought this was safe, however we discovered on the last night that anyone could just go up to the recetion and ask for any room key! Not very safe! People did have stuff stolen out of their rooms because of this..

The food was okay until one day i got the spare ribs for lunch and they were STILL FROZEN. That put me right off and i complained and they had the cheek to offer to microwave them for me.. Hello food poisening? I said no and asked for my money back.

There are a lot of hidden costs at this hotel and the staff are not friendly or helpful! The reception man was VERY grumpy! Don't stay here!!!

Booked to go here with 2 friends last August and paid £270 for a week, expected it to be a shabby hostal where we would be accompanied by annoying, loud people. Was completely different, relaxed in the day, lovely bar at night! Barmaid was amazing shotting with us.
Had a security guard at night to make sure we were all ok and to keep people quiet outside - meaning when you get a sleep its a nice peaceful one!
Looking to go back this year!
