I would rate the hotel itself very good: good recent refurbishment, including the rooms and bathrooms; excellent pool area, gardens and facilities; helpful and friendly staff, decent breakfast and passable dinners (if you happen to have half half-board), and free parking. The hotel also offers handy luggage lockers and shower facilities if you have a late departure on check-out day. Standard rooms have an appealing outlook towards the sea or (I believe) inland, with superior rooms facing down the beach towards the beach bars and clubs. As room costs are higher, it (generally) attracts a better class of guest compared to surrounding properties. It is also not that far from the old town.
However. If you are not planning to leave the hotel grounds (and many guests do not), or you intend to dance your nights away and sleep it off at the pool, then this is the place for you. If you are looking for a little quiet time and less-crowded, more beautiful beaches, then you should consider going elsewhere. While the hotel is at the quiet end, Playa d'en Bossa is - as mentioned - a not-so-upmarket nightclub and beach bar precinct set on one of Ibiza's least appealing beaches. It therefore attracts a young, 24-hour party crowd, some of whom do end up staying in the hotel, and who will inevitably wake you as they leave or come in from the parties (we had a 4am balcony party on the floor below, but which was stopped by the hotel staff after we complained). The nearby jetty is also a departure point for noisy afternoon party boats that hover around the island just off the beach, and on weekends the throb from the clubs across the bay can be heard in the superior rooms overlooking the beach, but is not really noticeable in the standard sea-facing rooms. Rooms facing inland overlook the hotel entrance and walkway to the beach, and are therefore likely to be noisy. While not directly under the flight path, there is also a bit of noise from planes coming in to land at the airport.
Due to the location, my overall rating is average.
