Orvay
Reviewed 4 September 2012

I've kept forgetting to leave a review, although subconsciously, i don't think i wanted anyone to know about this great hotel.

We've stayed at the Orvay 5 times in the last 5 years in groups of 4 to 8. We've not had any problems at any one time.

The hotel itself is simple. Small enough for it not to be uncomfortably overcrowded. But big enough to meet lots of new people at the great rooftop pool where you'll get the sun all day.

It's clean, comfortable and ideally situated. Five minutes from West End, two minutes from Ibiza Rocks and five minutes from Mambo et al.
The staff are great.
The cleaners are there every day changing towels and bed sheets every day at least.
The bar / restaurant staff are great and have put up with plenty of drunken rambling from us. The drinks and food are reasonably priced and pretty good. Good enough for us to eat there 90% of the time and cheap enough not to stock up on beer from a shop!

The manager has went out of our way with all sorts of things for us.

We've got better deals buying club tickets through the hotel rather than touts and sometimes online even. The manager has gone out of her way at times to get tickets at late notice (2am!) or tickets refunded.
She even helped friends who had been robbed staying at another hotel. Nothing was a problem.

Can't recommend it enough, it was a great find 5 years ago and now i'm willing to share it!
I'm glad to see it rightfully rated in the upper echelons of San Antonio hotels.

Room Tip: The only issue I can think of is if you're on the road side of the hotel, you hear some traffic...

I have stayed in these apartments twice, August 2009 and August 2011. Both stays were great! Apartments very clean and very big and spacious! In 2009 there were 3 of us staying in a two bedroomed apartment (we had extra room as people from our group pulled out last minute) but even the room i had in 2011 which had 6 of us in it was still spacious with 2 bedrooms, as normally with so many in one room it can get crowded! Air conditioning is available for a small charge, think it was about 6 euros a day, but when split between everyone in the room, it was cheap as chips!

Great location, a short walk to beach and west end and right across the road from ibiza rocks and near a cheap supermarket for booze, so save paying expensive corner shop prices!

Great rooftop pool for sunbathing and as we had one of the larger rooms in the apartments we had 2 big balconies!

Only fault i had about this hotel was that the little security man would flash his torch onto our balcony if we were playing music too loud too late! Which i suppose was a complaint from us, but not for other guests!

So all in all a great hotel i highly recommend it, wanted to go here in 2012 but it was fully booked!! Now what does that tell you :)

Room Tip: If booking in a group go for the 2 bedroom apartment, very big and spacious and means you can all be...

I recently stayed at the orvay apartments in San Antonio with 6 of my friends all lads on a stag do. I honestly cannot fault this place, the location is perfect across from Ibiza rocks 3 min walk from cafe del mar/Mambos ect in the other direction a 5 minute stroll to the west end. The place is spotless, the pool area on the roof is a sun trap and the food and drink in restuarant downstair is cheap and nice (great breakfasts). The staff are fantastic and will help u out with anything from getting you club tickets to lending you a hair dryer. The mot important thing I noticed was how secure the place was you can't go near the pool unless u are staying there and manager recognises everyone! The rooms are huge and cleaned daily fresh towls etc. Overall had an amazing time in Ibiza and this hidden gem was certainly a key factor for us. Would dedinitely stay again and certainly recommend to anyone going with friends or even as a young couple.

I have just returned from 3 nights in san antonio staying at the Orvay apartments and cannot praise them enough.

We arrived about 11am and couldn't check in til about 12ish. All we wanted to do was get in our bikinis and on a beach. This was not a problem, the very friendly and accommodating owners let us use a room downstairs to change and store luggage. We returned later that day and were shown to our room.

As there was 4 of us we had a 2 bed apartment. It was massive!! Could have slept 6 with ease. Fully equipped kitchen, bathroom was big and rooms were simple but lovely. We even had 2 balconies!! One in the living room and one from a bedroom!

The only downside is the pool itself wasn't very clean - more down to the other guests than the hotel. The roof terrace where the pool is is spot on though. We tended to use a pool nearer the beach in a bar.

Location wise this is perfect. 5 min (max) walk to the bars by the beach. Near enough to be in the centre but far enough out to be enjoyable. Will be returning next year!!

I have just come back from a week in Ibiza with 4 friends, we chose the apartments after they were recommended by a travel Councillor and we were not disappointed.
The apartments were basic but we didn't need any more. We had an apartment with 2 twin bedrooms and a bed in the 'living room' area. There was a small kitchenette with an oven, fridge/freezer, sink and microwave which we did use on a couple of occasions.
I would suggest paying the 6 euros a day for the air conditioning as we didn't have it on our first night and all struggled to sleep because of the heat.
The maids come round once a day but only really change the towels and the bins.
We ate in the square outside the apartment 3 times and the food was very nice and cheap, all the 3 restaurants do basically the same thing. The only down side is the men trying to sell sunglasses to you while you were eating but they did go away if you said no thanks.
The local supermarkets were small but sold cheap alcohol which we used to predrink. They also sell the basic necessities.
The pool is a suntrap and can get very hot, some days were busier than others but there was always either a sunbed or space to lay your towel. You cant take bottles up but plastic cups/cans are fine.
The hotel is situated in a perfect position, Ibiza rocks is less than five minutes walk away, the west end is to the left and about a 10/15 minute walk away and the sunset strip is to the right, also about 10 minutes away. I would definitely suggest watching the sunset on the rocks outside cafe mambo.

I would recommend a night at Ibiza Rocks, we saw the Kaiser Chiefs and the atmosphere was amazing, one of the best nights!
The strip is good too, there are some very good deals but be aware of glass on the floor, we saw someone who had cut their foot and there was a lot of blood.

One worry I had before we left was that on google maps, the address of the apartments shows it as being on the other side of the island, this is not right, it is a problem with google maps, yahoo maps shows the correct location.

Spent 5 days in the apartments, 3 boys 2 girls across 2 rooms. The food was the best in the little square, beers were very cheap. You can drink in your rooms quite easily and keep it cheap, and the roof top pool is a sun trap. It can get busy though. The staff are among the best we have met, and even let us swap our warm supermarket beers for cold ones for the taxi to the airport! When i go back to Ibiza if i stay in San An, it will be at the Orvay.

Room Tip: Ask for the top floor. Double rooms

I have just come back from a week in Ibiza staying at the Orvay Apartments. I don't normally write many reviews online but I felt compelled to write this one as we were all so pleased.

The apartments are well kept and clean. The staff that work there are all extremely pleasant and accommodating. The bar is very reasonably priced (desporados was e2.80 a bottle, a massive fry up inc a coffee or juice only e5.20).

The pool on the roof is ace great to catch a tan and chill in the pool and meet the other people.

A friend came and stayed with us the last few days, not a problem at all.

Sunset bars are 5 mins walk, so is the west end so perfect location.

The bars and restaurants opposite are also good with nice reasonably priced food and drinks and good atmosphere.

Thanks for making the holiday such a great one, I wouldn't hesitate to return again.

(maybe not for couples wanting a quiet time or families but for lads or girls cant fault)
