“Great hotel but be aware”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

Arrived at 3am on a Friday morning and were taken over to the sister hotel, Florencio, to check in. We'd booked a self-catered apartment at San Francisco for 6 nights but were given a room at Florencio instead. When we opened the room it was 4 bedrooms squeezed in, no fridge or balcony and an air-conditioner that didn't work. After complaining we were told that we weren't put in the wrong room but we had a choice of staying there for the week with free breakfast everyday or going to San Francisco for the rest of the time- we chose San Fran. When we got there eventually our room was great: really spacious, two huge balconies, modern appliances and a big shower. Everyone we'd spoken to had also had the same problem so make sure you complain if you aren't satisfied. On our first morning we went over to use the pool at Florencio but it was built up around that we couldn't get the sun and the pool is on the floor below the sunbeds. We found a gorgeous beach a 5 minutes walk away which was ideal. A huge piece of advice, however, if you are going to the beach, don't take ANY valuables and only minimal money; we all got our bags and purses emptied on our second day and every other day there others around us did too- they're professionals so don't rely on people being able to keep an eye on your bags. When this happened we were a bit more aware that our room wasn't the most secure (not all windows shut) so we'd recommend getting a safe for 25 euros. The hotel was in the perfect location though, 5 mins from the beach, cafe mambo, the west end and the harbor restaurants. The bar was great and the barmen really friendly and nobody could do enough for you. This hotel is perfect for young groups of friends and great value for money just make sure they don't try to shove you in the awful Florencio and keep an eye on your belongings at all times. Definitely recommended though!

Five girls (first time in ibiza) in one 2 bedroom apartment and it was brilliant.
Arrived late at night/early hours of morning and the security guard sorted us out into our room '303' on the third floor.
Fully refurbished room, flat screen TV, hob, microwave, kettle, walk in shower, two balconies and air conditioning (which we didnt pay for, although other reviews say they did on arrival, so not sure if we were meant to!)
Paid for safe but felt safe enough leaving stuff in the room.
Were given two swipe keys, but then next day asked at Florencio for two more, be careful keeping the key with your phones as they demagnetise the cards so you have to get them re-coded
Pool is at the Hotel Florencio which is about a minutes walk away round two corners, not a lot of sun loungers but could still get some if went down before 12ish.
San Francisco (which is opposite ibiza rocks hotel) is within walking distance of everywhere, strip, beach, taxi rank, and west end! Only problem is when wondering home drunk in the dark all the streets look the same so be prepared to spend alot of your time lost on the first couple of nights, but if you ask anyone where ibiza rocks is then you're directly opposite so you cant miss it!
Hotel is just enough out the way that there's no noise at night so you can get a few hours sleep too!
Restaurant downstairs cheap and good food, staff there are so friendly, same with Florencio!
Maid came in and changed towels etc every 1-2 days!
Not a bad word to say about this hotel, other than it has no lift! So after walking up and down 3 flights of stairs it feels like youve spent half an hour on a treadmill!
Reps came round every night knocking on doors asking if you needed any tickets but were not pushy if you said no. (You get free/discounted wristbands everyday on the beach for all the clubs/different events so have a look round before you pay loads of money for a club -e.g, we were in the queue for eden with wristbands to get in free from the beach and a group of girls behind us had paid 30 odd euros with a rep to get in so they were not happy!)

All in all, such a brilliant find! No problems what so ever, would definitely recommend these apartments! Seriously just book it because you won't regret it :-)

Room Tip: -When we booked we requested a refurbished room (which not all of them are) so make sure you do that...

9 of us in two rooms on stag party. Rooms were clean and spacious (when we arrived) and cleaned every other day with fresh towels supplied. Balconies were a good size and bathroom/shower was decent. In general apartments were a lot better than we expected and you won't find better value for money. Night porter for added security. The bar downstairs was an added bonus the staff were brilliant , helpful, friendly and up for laugh. The food was good quality and price. Only €2.50 for a beer and €1.50 for proper nice coffee. You can use the pool and sun terrace in the hotel round the corner which is literally a minute away. The only problem we had our key cards could be temperamental (possible misuse) but they re-coded them round the corner straight away and if you lose them it's €2 to replace. We probably should have bought a few spares on arrival. Within easy walking distance to most places ie cafe mambo , west end etc. would recommend getting your bearings before going out as streets all look the same and can be hard to find apartments after a night out.

Room Tip: Try and get a room closest to the bar, you can hear music most places all the time but it was a litt...

I have stayed in these apartments several times over the past 5 years and they are a real hidden find, amazing value for money. They are all very big, and on a couple of occasions where I have booked a one-bed apartment they ended up allocating us a two-bed apartment so we got a bedroom each! There were hairdryers and LCD TV (with English channels too) and lovely bathroom. Basic kitchen but had fridge, hob, kettle, cooking utensils etc.. basically all that you really need.
The location is perfect as well. It is a quieter area of San Antonio and away from the noisy west end. It's about 5 minutes walk to Cafe Mambo, around the corner from the Ibiza Rocks hotel which has regular gigs on, and 10 mins walk to the heart of the West End and down to the harbour if that's what you are after. There is a local beach 5mins walk away (Calo des Moro) but an even nicer one a 15-20min walk called Cala Gracio which is worth it and gets a bit of exercise in!
Do note if you turn up late, you have to check in to the Hostel Florencio which is just around the corner.

BEST HOLIDAY YET!!! Stayed in this hotel a few years back with 5 of my friends (all stayed in the same room) and it was brilliant!! I defo reccommend anyone to stay here! The bar staff are soooo friendly and the restaurant food is brilliant, dont think we ate out alot as it had everything we wanted and for a cheap price. The rooms are spacious, clean and have everything you need. Not far from west end, beach and sunset strip. We met some amazing people here and had the best time! Really hoping to stay here again very soon!! Abosolute riot of a holiday and this hotel defo made it better!! GO FOR IT!!!!

When we got there we had to go and check in at a hotel 2 mins round the corner, we were early but our room was ready in 30 mins and we waited in the bar downstairs. We traveled as 2 couples. When we got to the apartment 3 beds were in the bedroom and 1 in the living room. We moved that bed into the bedroom and pulled out the bed settee. Apartments were large but ours was quite dated, We went into a neighbours and theres was much nicer and modern but i belive they are all being updated this winter. Our kitchen only had 2 spoons 1 pan and a kettle cracked in half but as we did not eat in once this did not really matter. Had air con in the living room but not bedroom so got rather warm in there. Our electric went out on the last day but one of the bar men came and fixed it. Could have done with more towells as there was 4 of us but these were changed every 2 days and beds made. Nice big balcony with chairs and table for us to sit out on and a good shower. Ohio bar downstairs is fab for a few drinks before you go out or a quick snack. You are a 5 min walk to a little beach (not san antonio main beach) and a 10 min walk to mambos/ del mar. We found a lovely restraunt called Kasbar just next to the little beach which i would highley reccomend. It is a 15 min walk to the main bay and Eden etc but i would stay away from this beach as it is full of rubbish etc. We went over to Bossa 3 nights and this cost us 30 euros each way. We went to Sankeys, Space and Ushuia and i would reccomend all of them along with Bora Bora beach. Villa Mercedes in San Antonio is also brilliant and the little restraunt next to it. We hired bikes from the apartments and went for a ride along the coast which was lovely and we found some nice secluded coves to sunbathe. I would reccomend these apartments and sure they will be lovely when done. The pool you can use round the corner is also good and always sunbeds available.
