“Decent for value”
Reviewed 23 June 2011

From Canada, first time to Ibiza. Hotel was pretty much what we expected from the reviews. No air conditioning but the ceiling fan works great and some times at night we were even a bit cold. They say they clean the rooms every day but all they do is make the bed and take out the trash. They didn't change our sheets once the entire 7 days and we had to go out and buy toilet paper. No shampoo or hand soap in the room either so bring your own. The TV in the room was broken but whatever we weren't there to watch TV. Food for dinner was about a 5/10 but edible and for the price you can't go wrong. Breakfast consists of bread, hard boiled eggs, some lunch meet and cheese slices. There is a decent coffee machine but the juice was that imitation sugar syrup and not drinkable. You have to pay for water bottles but they are fairly inexpensive. No internet except two pay machines in the lobby. But there is many internet cafe's nearby on the strip. Not too noisy considering it's Ibiza and an absolute perfect location. Staff friendly and helpful although on the last day they charged us an extra 40 Euro for not vacating our room before noon even though our shuttle wasn't coming to pick us up until 6pm. For it's location and price I would recommend this Hotel.

The hotel room was basic but not unpleasant. There was a serious problem with the food. The previous reviews are out of date and do not reflect the serious problems with the food.

Breakfast was a very basic continental breakfast with the only hot item being hard boiled eggs. The photograph show the 3 of the hot food servers being used for jam storage and the 4th empty. The cold meat was either salami or reconstituted meat which contained a red dye. At school we called it "pink lint".

The problems with "dinner" is shown in the photographs. There were only 4 hot food servers in use on any one night. This restricted the choice - there were never any vegetables or potatoes other than chips. The food was luke warm. There was never any choice as to meat. The meat in particular was very low budget such as meat balls and reconsituted recovered meat products.

On the night shown in the photographs, the 1st warm food container contained what was supposed to be a pasta dish but was what could only be described as having the consistency of luke warm glue. The 2nd food container contained luke warm greasy breadcrumb covered what appeared to be some form of reconsitiuted recovered meat. The colour varied throughout the inside. The 3rd container contained luke warm chips and the 4th container was nearly as revolting as the the recovered meat - it appeared to be cabbage pieces in some sort of warm slime. I do like cabbage by the way.

Each night varied but there was always only 4 warm dishes which incorporated very low budget meat products.

My wife and I both suffered stomach upsets after eating the food

Stayed at Club Can Bossa late September 2010 with my girlfriend. Our purpose was to have a low cost hotel, well located and with Half Board. We also had a rental car to drive around the island.
We booked through logitravel.pt and got a 54€ per night with half board. Couldn't ask for more. Don't know if we where luck but staying at the secondary building of the hotel was great - no noise - almost no guests there. We had the perfect room to rest after all the party of the nearby clubs. Bora Bora, and Space are less than 10 minutes walk away.
The food was very good for what we paid. Breakfast had cold and hot food. Dinner was also very good, salads, soups, 2 main courses and dessert.
Staff very friendly - always welcomed you.
Pool didn't use because we had a car and spend the day at the island beaches.
Even in the main building there where no noisy groups of guests. We where a bit afraid of finding noisy English or Italian at this low budget hotel, but all was quiet.
If you find a good deal on the internet around 55€-60€ - this is highly recommend hotel.

My husband & I booked here for our 1st wedding anniversary which cost £1100. Couldn't wait to get back home. No air con and as we had to keep the doors open yto keep us cool the aircraft noise kept us awake all night long as the planes fly right in front of the building. For 3 nights running the locals held a festival right in front of the hotel until 2 o clock in the morning. Shabby, shabby, shabby pillows & bedding. We paid good money for a budget hotel. Would have been more luxurious had we booked into a Travelodge which was constructed in the 70's. Be warned******** Do not waste your hard earned cash on this hotel. The only plus side of our stay was that the staff were very pleasant. DISADVANTAGE.....Everything I have stated. ADVANTAGE......We only stayed for 1 week. Thank god.

Me and a friend stayed here - we requested a balcony with view and got exactly that which we were so pleased with - gorgeous view from the room so it was worth asking. Location was great, just set away from the main strip so not loud but literally 60seconds from bars and restaurants on the corner. The beach is literally over the road (about 7 min walk) and walking distance to Space and resturaunts & bars of Playa d'en Bossa. Salinas was 15 minute bus away which was fabulous and buses to Ibiza town also about 15-20 mins (or 20-25euro cab), airport 10mins (approx 10euro cab or direct bus there) as well as disco buses to and from the big clubs run through the night.

Basic, and great value - just what we needed, and we couldnt ask for more for the price we paid. Was clean, and the maid cleaned the room daily, although when we first got there there was a couple of dodgy things like suspicious hair on the bathroom stool and unwashed rinsing glasses in the bathroom but they were the only problems I can think of. We found a few ants on day 3 (probably our fault for leaving drinks on the balcony!) but overall it didn't put us off at all.

The only bad thing was the food which was shockingly bad (no exaggeration - we sat down, had half a mouthful and went to KFC down the road instead..it was that bad) but to be fair, we didn't know that food was included in the room anyway so we couldn't really complain. We never got up early enough to have breakfast (it's from 8-10am).

The staff were all really friendly, there was 24hr security, so as 2 girls we felt very safe, and they were very helpful with information about the towns, directions, buses etc and were just as knowledgeable and gave advice about everything going on outside of Playa d'en Bossa too. They also have tickets to all of the big club nights which was handy.

The hotel had a mix of people: families as well as couples and small groups of friends and was very quiet (i.e. no noisy kids or noisy groups) . Mostly Italian and German - we only met 2 other English people who left the day after we arived. The pool was lovely, very quiet and relaxing and we always went after the beach - could have been livelier, but as we realised, it wasn't really that kind of hotel. Anyone looking for more of a party hotel, this probably isn't for you.

Would definitely reccommend as a basic, clean pleasant hotel in good location.

Not only is the location of this hotel amazing but its cheap and great value for money. 8 of us stayed in the hotel and did not have any problems the whole time we were there. Each room has its own private balcony and it's a 7 min walk to Bora Bora beach even closer to some amazing cocktail bars.

Will definately go again.

Only downside - no fridges in the room!

We were really pleased with this hotel and for what we paid, we could not have done better. The hotel is exceptionally clean throughout and the staff are both friendly and helpful. Okay there is no air con but you are paying for a 2 star hotel and not a 5 star one. All of the public areas have aircon but the rooms only have a ceiling fan and yes, it is hot in the room when the temperature outside is 35 degrees. Food is excellent for a 2 star property and far better than many 3 and 4 star establishments. The only thing I would say with regards to the food is that the choice is limited but you can usually find something that suits. Pool and surrouding terraces were kept clean throughout our stay and whilst most people staying there are young Italians, do not let this put you off as they behave so much better than young British would! No drunkeness or rowdiness experienced duing our stay just people have a great time! Hotel is in a quiet position so you can get a good nights sleep but still be close to the main drag with all the bars and restaurants. Take a walk along the promenade to Figuerettes which is a much nicer resort to be honest, but more exepnsive to stay at than Playa Den Bossa. You really will not be dissapointed with this hotel.
