“Good not brilliant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2011

This is a large hotel. It also has another hotel in its grounds that adds to the congestion at reception and in the dining room. Our thoughts on the hotel are:-
Good,
Great location away from the centre of San Antonio.
Adult pool,
Service at the bars.
Very clean.

Bad
Not enough parasols, Beds to parasols ratio maybe 20:1
Chicken at virtually every meal. Curried, roasted, sweet and sour all looked and tasted very similar.
You have to pay 14 Euros a day for seaview.
The adult pool is only 20 mtrs from the other hotel in the grounds but your cannot get a drink there.
The staff on reception were fine until there was a problem. The girl in the evening is hopeless. My wallet was stolen and it did not prompt any reaction. ( maybe it is the norm.)
You have to justify to the bar staff why you want a drink in a glass. Not allowed anywhere except the bar.

Before I begin, I know it is quite long so here are the pros and cons if you dont want to have to listen to me drivel on :)

Pros: Location, room size&standard, bar, food, staff, pools, local beach, kids club, weather, variety of drinks/food

Cons: slightly hard beds (very fussy to highlight this), lift doors shutting

Me and my girlfriend went here at the end of the summer holidays (we are both aged 18) and had a amazing time. Against many stereotypes, neither of us are partiers and so were a little concerned about being so close to San Antonio but we needn't have been.

The hotel was far enough away from San Antonio that we didnt have any trouble with the party lifestyle of the club capital of the world. On top of this, the hotel is practically situated on the beach, there is a set of (fairly steep steps) and you are there. The white sands were lovely and the water even more so. The sea was clear as crystal and still as anything. There were people on lilo's some 60-70m out to sea perfectly safe.

Moving onto the hotel itself, we first approached it in the dark at 4.30am, but it was lit up in tasteful fashion and as we walked through the lobby we were amazed at how nice it was. To top it off the receptionist was exceptionally helpful and checked us in, gave us our key and welcome pack with no hassle at all. Then when we got to our room we were amazed. The size of the room was huge! We were expecting, not having paid much, to be stuck in a boxy room, however when we walked in it was stunning.

The room itself was lovely. The tv was small and old, but we didnt go on holiday for the tv so that wasnt really a worry, but other than that the wardrobe was big enough to fit a 18yr old girls clothes in and more (says a lot!) and the en-suite was also of generous proportions. The whole room was modern but crisp and the view from the balcony was breathtaking. Moreover, the room was always perfectly clean as the maids were in daily at the same time and did a remarkable job. The only criticism I could make, was the beds were slightly on the hard side and I would have to be picky to say that.

The facilities in the hotel were also top quality. Whereas I didn't know, there was a adult pool at the Tanit, which proved to be a relaxing haven if you wanted peace away from children, however there was also a huge family pool (and separate childrens pool) if you happen to be traveling with children. In addition, there was a kids club, which to tell you the popularity can only be described by anecdote. One day we were sat having lunch and one kid came running over to a guy at the table (we later realized he ran the kids club) and gave him a high-5 much to the amusement of the entertainer. To say we were amazed at the connection forged between them is a understatement.

The anecdote leads me on to the food. Breathtakingly good. Having eaten on the continent before, I had certain per-conceptions of what to expect however I was totally blown away. First of all the variety. You could go there and eat whatever you wanted. Meat, fish, salad, veg options, soup, bread, kids stuff. The list was endless. And it was all cooked perfectly. Especially the 'live cooking' was so good. And the puddings were to die for.

There are two bars at the hotel, one indoor one and one outdoor one and I have to admit, the bar staff there were tremendous. The speed of service, helpfulness and I think best of all, they ALWAYS smiled and had a laugh. Above that, the variety of drinks on offer was huge. The local beer was surprisingly good and they had every spirit we could think of (its a good way to spend an evening on all inclusive) and the measures of alcohol were of generous proportions. (you say stop when you have enough ... or else you get a full glass)

The only other little thing that you have to be careful about is the lifts. Once the doors decide they are shutting, they are shutting and there is no stopping them. Other than that the Fiesta Tanit Hotel was a wonderful place and we definitely would consider going again. The only thing we were disappointed about was that we missed the sign on reception advertising day trips to Fortmentera (the 4th Balearic)

Room Tip: If you select interconnecting rooms these are the biggest. Even if you just book one. We got given a...

Just returned from a week at the hotel with family ages: 31, 40, 52, 70+, 70+. Booked with First Choice and flew from Newcastle with no disruptions either out or in bound.
I'd like to echo and reinforce what most people are saying about the food at this hotel. Considering its an all inclusive (and I've been to a few), the choice of food at the restaurant is fantastic and never ending ie. the staff are always bringing out fresh food. There's loads of soft drinks choice - ideal for kids. The beer is CruzCampo, the wines are red and white. You can pour your own drinks in the restaurant so theres no restrictions on quantity. Drinks are also available outside by the pool from the bar. For water we bought a bottle from the shop across the road on the first day and filled it up either in the restaurant or at reception.

Pools wise, theres the main pool (get out early to reserve your beds) in the main outside area at the rear of the hotel, a kids pool at the side of the hotel and an adults only pool, kind of between the hotel and the beach called Cala Gracio. We spent all of our time at the main pool because its close for drinks, the restaurant, toilets, activities etc. I'd recommend trying to get the spot beside the stairs at the far right corner of the pool - you'll see it when you get there.

Accommodation: We stayed in room 114 on the first floor overlooking the kids pool which you couldn't hear when the balcony door was shut. Unfortunately the walls are fairly thin and I could hear (muffled) the family next door playing with their daughter. Due to the long corridor acoustics between rooms any noise in the corridors is amplified and echoed, so kids running in the corridors gets heard in rooms. But hey it IS a family hotel and generally after 9ish kids are asleep anyway. The people in my family aren't spring chickens and the noise didn't spoil our holiday.

Out and around the hotel: In the afternoons we went to the bar at the beach which isn't far from the main pool at the hotel for some drinks (3.20 euros a pint) and a few evenings we went to the pub across the street, actually its more like an outside restaurant than a pub. We did go down to the shack to have a look but it wasn't our sort of thing. We didn’t go out because we didn't like anything on offer at the hotel but because we enjoy a change of scenery from time to time. We (me and my wife) took the water taxi to San Antonio for a day out. San Antonio turned out to be exactly as I imagined it; pubs, restaurants, bars, youngsters just there to get drunk and have a good time and a bit of a frenzy of people. Needless to say we didn't go back.
To summarise:
If you want a decent all inclusive resort in this part of Ibiza away from the hussle and bussle (using that term losely) of San Antonio, then you couldn't do much better than this hotel for the price. We paid about £450 per person, last-minute, booking on line.

If you've got any questions about the place, please get in touch. I'll happily help out.

brilliant stay in hotel tanit. couldn't fault it. Food excellent, something for everyone, even my 5 yr old grandson who decided he loved mussells. Clean allround and rooms kept spotless. Both pools very good but the childrens one was in perfect position for sun with large tree area which gave shade, well it did for us as we managed to put our sunbeds every day in that area and didnt have to get up at crack of dawn either to get them. pool lifeguards Jose and Jose (renamed HoseA and HoseB) try explaining that in spanish, but great guys.,
Went to cafe mambo for sunset very busy, but lovely(take your own drink) once, every other evening saw the very same sunset at the beach by the hotel, superb. Take a towel and a drink, couldnt be better. The Wanted video was filmed there on that beach, great fun for all reliving the picture on the tree. Must mention the first choice reps Paul, Ashleigh and lucy couldnt have been more helpful and their collection of buggies which you can just borrow ( hotel charges 8 euros a day) and the Box !! everything a child could want to play with, all there for the use of . no need to buy inflatables, buckets just help yourself but add to it when you leave. Even half full sun lotion.
Finally, yes the walls are thin and can sometimes an issue but at midnight just tell reception and they respond imediately. But no problem to us at all. Would go back

Room Tip: 7th floor sea view perfect but poolviews just as good on all floors

This was our second visit to the Tanit, we stayed there in August 2009 and returned in August 2011 and were impressed both times.

We are a family with 2 young children (aged 1 and 6), this hotel is ideal for families. The First Choice Kids Clubs are fantastic, but only cater for children from age 3.

Good points:

*Food was really good on both occasions and we have 2 very fussy eaters in the family!
*All areas of the hotel and grounds were well maintained and clean.
*Close enough to San Antonio for a nice walk but not too close to the noisy nightlife
*Staff very friendly and helpful

Bad points:

*Not enough juice/tea and coffee machines in the dining room
*Only 1 toaster in the dining room!
*Nothing for babies to do really, only have the kids pool, no creche :(

All in all the Tanit is a lovely hotel and I would go back a third time but only when my youngest child is old enough for the kid's club.

My friend and I have just returned from the Tanit - brilliant! We were a little dubious on the location of the hotel and of the reviews we had read - all these doubts disappeared on arrival.

The hotel staff were excellent -very welcoming and always had a smile and a pleasant word to say. We never saw any member of staff being anything other than charming and friendly.

Our room was large and the view was magnificent - we watched the sunset every night from our balcony. Incidentally the balcony door was the best we have ever had for blocking out the noise from the bar below.

The food was good and varied - each dinner time there was always a selection of meats or fish being cooked to your preference. Baskets of fresh fruit abounded.

There is a water area especially for the young children, plus a large pool for others, also the use of the Adult Only Pool - which is just that Adults only. Plus the beach is only a few yards past the Adult Only Pool down some steps. Each area had life guards on duty all the time they are open - a great safety feature not always present in some hotels.

Try the water taxis - they are great. Also bus into San Antonio is brill and only 1.50 each way. We also got the bus into Ibiza Old Town - again a brilliant day - so easy!

We also did the Ibiza Express - absolutely brill - the driver is so funny!! 2 hours of sightseeing and fun whilst sitting down!!

Also have a go at the boat trips from San Antonio - we did a 2hr trip which was really good.

The Thomson Reps were absolutely excellent - all three of them! They were a source of local information and always willing to assist. Thanks Thomson - you have three excellent Reps who deserve recognition.

All in all everything was excellent and would recommend this experience to all.

Room Tip: Go for a pool view as the sea is behind this
