“Happy Return”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

just back from a lovely stay at this Hotel its been a few years since we stayed there but it is still one of the best Hotels in San Antonio. Rooms on the sea side of the Hotel now have excellent double glazed doors which keeps out all the noise from returning revelers, There is a ceiling fan in the room but you have to pay a supplement for the air con., towels were changed everyday and bed linen once a week . Food choice is excellent with themed nights, Staff are very friendly and special thanks to Sara Manolo, Manuel Olga and Hitcham. Already booked for a return visit in the Autumn.

Room Tip: All even numbered rooms have a sea view and double glazed doors

We stayed at the Arenal last September and loved every minute of it. We had an e mail from the hotel owner a few weeks ago to say my review through Trip Advisor had won their competition for a week's holiday at the Arenal. I thought we'd be put in a cupboard because we weren't paying for our stay. The opposite. We had a room overlooking San Antonio Bay which as everyone says is absolutely stunning. I was made to feel very special and the staff went out of their way to make it so. My favourite place is lying on a sunbed in the garden looking out at the bay. You're only a few steps from the beach which is so clean and there's just a scattering of sun beds. A lot of people liked to sit around the pool where there is no shortage of sun beds and the gardens are full of flowers. The buffet breakfast and dinner are excellent too - plenty of choice. My only complaint, the food is too good, you eat far too much!

Easy to get about by bus or the water taxis and so cheap. Ibiza town has fabulous shops. The marina is full of super yachts and yet a short walk away is the Old Town which is like going back in time. We went to Formentera for the day and hired electric bikes. Everywhere we turned the views were stunning. The beaches are powder white and the sea deep turquoise. You'd think you were in the Caribbean.

Yes there are a lot of young people in San Antonio but they're just there to have fun. We never saw any trouble and felt safer there on a Saturday night than at home! The hotel is only a short walk away from the famous San Antonio night life. Two streets away from the West End is the real San Antonio. Little squares with restaurants and cafes where the locals go. We went to watch the football there one evening and even though they couldn't speak English very well made us feel like one of them.

We will never forget this holiday. The Arenal and Ibiza are very special. Go and see for yourselves!

Room Tip: Room with a sea view is a must.

We booked this holiday/hotel only 3 weeks before we went. It had good reviews so we felt confident it would be alright for us for the week. As soon as I went through the doors I felt very pleased and knew it was the right place for us. We were greeted by a very friendly man on the reception who quickly checked us in and gave us our keys. It was the middle of the night when we got there so went straight to bed. The view that met us when we opened the curtains in the morning was absolutely beautiful (sea view room - which is a must!). The whole hotel is spotlessly clean and the maids work tirelessly to keep it that way.

The sea view rooms are spacious and have a large bathroom with a bath/shower and even a bidet!

The food is buffet style and fantastic! There is so much choice for every taste. I was spoilt for choice at every meal. The dining room is roomy and light and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

There are plenty of chairs inside to lounge about in and have a drink, snack or watch a bit of TV. Outside chairs with that "sea view" are always available. The décor was a little dated in places but I loved it. It felt comfortable and homely unlike some of the modern furniture. The evening entertainment was good and was shared alternate nights with the sister hotel (Ses Savines).

We calculated how far it was to the beach, and it was a full 10 strides away! Hotel on the beach is no lie. It seems to sit in the middle of San Antonio Bay, with quieter parts one way and livelier parts the other. Shops are only a short walk away and there is a lovely promenade right outside the hotel which goes right round the bay. There are plenty of water taxis which take you across the bay (about 2.5 Euros each).

It was our first time in Ibiza and it is such a pretty island I would definitely return. But it's our thanks to the Arenal Hotel and all the staff for making our stay such a wonderful one. I will definitely recommend this hotel and would love to return!! Thank you.

Room Tip: Sea View room is a must without a doubt!! Large rooms with large bathrooms (including a bath and bid...

Returned again to the Arenal San Antonio - stayed many times - good food - staff are extremly helpful, furnishings basic but very very clean. The hotel is kept to a very high standard of cleanliness, inside and out.. New double galzed doors on the front of the building of the bedrooms is worth its weight in gold - keeping out any noise made by late night party people. Beach front location - 10 minute walk to town. San antonio is kept clean - the local people are very friendly and the staff will welcome you back year after year. I would have no hesitation in recomending this hotel. Will be returning again later this year.

Room Tip: Rooms are large - double glazing on front of building - clean pool areas and new seating this season...

This is the first time at this hotel, it was clean and tidy. Staff were great,professional and friendly nothing was too much trouble. The location of this hotel is great with the beach right on the door step and a 10min walk from the town so if you want to madness of the west end you can go to it. Menu was varied all week, only thing I would say is that there wasn't a lot of choice for children(if you have fussy eaters like my son) thoroughly enjoyed my holiday and will be back....
