“Good Hotel..Away from the Hustle....”
Reviewed 11 July 2012

Stayed here with a cupel of friends in May 2012.
At the outset we were really spooked out with review of lot of properties in Ibiza having salt water in taps and lousy service, so we chose sum fin which was a little more expensive but hygienically sound. Even though I cannot confirm the former, I can definitely confirm the latter.

Positives:
Free Wifi...
Clean Hotel, great Swimming pool, good views.
Brilliant breakfast buffet,
Unlimited usage of minibar, as long as you are not planning on surviving on that!
Big property so enough privacy.

Negatives
No connecting rooms
Away from the action. It is 10 minutes from the heart of play de bossa and well playa de bossa is not exactly comparable with the bustle of San Antonio, so you are doubly isolated. But then everything is easily accessible if you are ready to spend on cabs, or you don't mind walking a mile or so.
Staff Not very homely, predictable as with most large hotels.

Overall if am in Ibiza again, I would like top experience some more cheerful hotels or hostels which are hygienically sound as well, don't know though if both the things come hand in hand :).

This place was reasonably expensive, but did not disappoint in any major way.

Room Tip: sea facing!!

IN SUMMARY: IDEAL LOCATION, NICE HELPFUL STAFF, VERY CLEAN, GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY.
My wife and me were not sure whether Ibiza would be a great choice for a quiet holiday but we decided to go for it anyway. This Hotel was a good choice as it is ideally located: 50 mt off the main road of Playa den'Bossa which has plenty of bars and restaurants (easy to go to with a 10min walk) and therefore quiet with the comodity at easy reach if wanted. Ibiza city centre is 10mins by car although it may be quite hard to find parking in the evening near the city centre, although this is definitely worthwhile. Just outside the hotel garden starts the long beach of playa den'Bossa which however is a public beach (with he tiny port just there, so if one wants to swim in the sea may have to move down 100mts or so t othe right, but if you turn left and walk around the corner the water is amazing as the beach much quieter). If one likes more privacy the garden and swimmingpool are quite nice and quiet. Personally we preferred to drive around the island to visit around and explore the different beaches (must see Cala Comte, Agua Blanca but also little jewels as Cala Molì, Cala Xarraca, etc - litterally in the morning we checked where the water looked nicer on googlemaps and then drove there). The hotel offers free parking just outside the door which is handy if one rents a car.
The staff at the reception was very kind and helpful and had appropriate proficiency of the english as you would expect from a 4 star hotel. The reception area is somewhat "old style" almost out of the late 90s, but the feeling was definitely welcoming and as it was tidy, clean and cozy. There are 3 elevators which are quite quick and we never had to wait for more than 20 secs for one. The breakfast in the morning offered a good choice of british style as well as continental. The waiters were very efficient to clear your plate as soon as you finished eating.
The room was, in style with the rest of the hotel, kinda retro but very clean and bright. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom spacious with a nice powerful shower. Hair-drier was present and in working order. MAKE SURE YOU ASK FOR A SEA-VIEW ROOM (which we had and was amazing to see the sea in the morning or have a tea on our balcony in the evening before going to bed). Room service was also very good, tasty food and served promptly, again good value for money. There is free mini-bar, which however contains no alcohol (it may on request I think, but we did not ask), but is refilled daily with water, fanta or coke. The TV was decent size with a good selection of channels in many languages. The room was always quiet.
A special note for the STAFF which was salways VERY HELPFUL and efficient.
The only negative note for us was the wee charge for the use of the safe box in the room, which worked with a key rather than with a combination.
I would definitely return to this hotel if I were to stay again in the area.

For party people who like having a calm retreat, the hotel is very good located. One one side, you are a 20 minutes walk on the beach away from Bora Bora. On the other hand, you even can walk (approx. 30 minutes) to the old town.
Quite annoying is the situation with Taxis, you always have to wait after ordering one at the reception.
Nice chillout zone at the pool after a hard night out parying.

We got 2 rooms in this place. One with triple beds and another with double beds. Overall the rooms looked nice and we had an awesome view of the water, but we expected it to look nice since it was one of the nicer hotels in the area. The beds were just ok, seems that most beds in Europe we stayed in were more on the firm side.

They have a nice pool in the complex and a bar right by the pool as well. If you don't want to get dirty in the sea water, then you can stay by the pool... but I suppose you won't get to meet as many people though. If you wander at the Playa d'en Bossa and walk all the way to the edge of that beach, you'll see the different bars and eating places. You can even rent a pedal boat with a slide at the top for you and your friends. There will also be many people that offer you tickets to night clubs with some deal. We've found out that doing could be a scam so it's best to buy it from a reputable store instead.

Based on talking to people there.. seems that the Playa d'en Bossa beach is more for party goers. If you want the really nice looking beaches and maybe a bit quieter, then go to the other areas. You'll also see many tourists in this area that want to have fun and party.

In terms of the hotel, it has a safe (that you have to pay for per day) and they told us to always leave doors/windows closed when we leave because some people bring people they meet and you can't always be sure who could be a thief... we did that since we were paranoid and even got the safe... but all in all, compared to other hotels, this hotel feels safe and helpful. You can also get towels for the beach (blue ones), but you'll need to make sure to return it or else you'll get charged.

Things I didn't like were mainly: being charged for safe (normally it comes with the room in other hotels we stayed in), and the annoyance of having to come back and return the blue towels back instead of leaving it in the room.. perhaps, that's ok since they wanted to make sure they got it back... but just thought I'd mention it if you decide to borrow a towel.

I thought this hotel was a great value: it was affordable, but still incredibly clean and nice with great amenities. I absolutely loved my terrace where I could look out on the beach and water. The location is also great. Each day I would walk along Playa d'en Bossa and hit up some of the beach bars and restaurants. The pool outside is also a great way to relax. I think the best part of the hotel is it is a little offset from some of the rowdy partying that takes place further along the beach, so it's perfect if you want to get away from some of the activity for a little bit. Still, if you want to party it's just a 5-10 minute walk up the gorgeous beach. Wi Fi throughout the hotel is also a definite plus. I can't wait to come back to Ibiza, and I will definitely keep this hotel in mind when I come back.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the water. The terrace views are priceless.

This hotel is perfectly positioned between Ibiza Town and Playa den Bossa. Staff were very welcoming on check in and this continued throughout our 7 night stay. Hotel is spotlessy clean with quiet areas to relax off reception. The bedrooms are small with 2 single beds pushed together even though we requested a double. Heres the niggle....... the beds are like a rock! I requested a change of mattress which was done immediately but it made no difference. We booked a seaview which was well worth the extra money. In the mini bar all soft drinks were free. A nice touch! The safe was €4 per day to hire and wi fi was free through out the hotel.
Breakfast was usual fare you would expect from a 4 star hotel, however they did not serve pancakes which I love. Everything else was fine. The view from the diningroom was stunning. I cannot comment on the evening meal as we like to eat out in the evening
The pool and garden area were exceptional and there were always plenty of sunbeds available at any time of day. Pool towels were provided by the hotel free of charge.
If I return to Ibiza I would have no hesitation in staying in this hotel again. Well worth a visit
