“Good location and that's about it”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

I stayed there with friends in July for 2 days:
- Very good location, close to all the shops, bars, restaurant; about 5m walk to the beach and 20m walk to Ushuaia & Space nightclub;
- The hotel is big with a pool area, but the hotel is quite old (including all the facilities);
- Rooms are very average, old and a small balcony with only the pool view. The shower head was broken in our room;
- Service is ok; wifi is NOT free. Room cleaners are very loud in the morning, shouting at each other across the corridors.
Overall, very average, especially for the expensive price, I personally will not come back to this hotel again.

Awesome location, right in the middle of the party scene but beds were uncomfortable and buffet breakfast was terrible. Customer service was average but I guess you get what you paid for. Would probably look for a different hotel next time around.

have just returned from Ibiza always like to review hotels as think it may help other travellers. This hotel was excellent value for money for a 2 star hotel close to main madness of playa d'en bossa as a more mature couple imagine would be a bit much at the height of the season, hotel staff very helpful rooms clean and basic pool great always a sunbed spare have travelled far and wide 1st time no towels reserving beds for hours on end bizarre......... would return beginning or near end of season best for young adults who want clean bedroom and hangover breakfast.

Room Tip: far block quieter lovely sea view if on 6th 7th floor

We were looking for a hotel that was close enough to the beach and Space get to easily, but wasn't super expensive. This hotel definitely fit those requirements. However, it was not nearly as nice as the photos lead me to believe. There was no horrible thing wrong with the hotel - it just barely met all the minimums of a place at which I would stay.

Pros:
- No more than a 10 minute walk to the beach, and a 15-20 min walk to the clubs Space and Ushuaia.
- It's a little off the main strip, which is nice because it's quiet
- A breakfast buffet is included. It's pretty basic, but nice to have, especially after a long night of clubbing
- The room is clean, as indicated by the strong disinfectant smell when we arrived (went away after a while)

Cons:
- The room is pretty much just a bed and bathroom. There's a 13" CRT tv (how about one from this decade?).
- The only toiletries were soap, shampoo, and conditioner. These came in 9 ml packets. You ever try to take a shower w/9 ml of soap?? And they didn't even give us a new packet the next day!!
- No free wi-fi. You even have to pay to use the old computer in the lobby
- The tap water is NOT drinkable. This may be a thing at all the hotels, but the water tasted like saltwater straight from the ocean. It was even hard to brush your teeth with it. You'll be spending a lot on bottled water, or try to stock up at breakfast.
- When we came in at 5:30am, no one was at the desk. The guy was passed out in the chair a few feet away. Not normally a thing, except all of the passports are behind the desk right by the door.
- No safe in the room. I think you have to request one, which is dumb.
- Front desk told us the only way to the airport was the expensive cabs. With a little research we figured out that a 10 minute walk just past the highway gets you to a bus stop (Bus 10 I believe) which takes you to the airport fast and cheap. They should know that and tell their guests it's an option.

Bottom line: if all you're concerned about is spending all day at the beach and partying all night, then this place will be fine. However, I would probably pay up a little more to have some basic amenities (enough soap for both my girlfriend and I to take showers) met.

Room Tip: - All the x05 room numbers open right in front of the elevator. Avoid those if possible.

Stayied here the first time i came to Ibiza...says it 500metres from space but its more like 10min walk. In the same street as Sankey's.... which is a surpisely good club. The hotel is nothing special but it is clean and the staff are very helpful and friendly. This hotel i perfect for clubbers that just need a place to rest there head when it all gets to much. The rooms are basic but a strong point is it has a very good shower.

There's nothing exciting about this place, it's a standard Spanish summer hotel, rooms are basic with no fridge, slow aircon but a great shower. We had a suspicious sewer smell in our room at dome times during the day. Breakfast was very basic too. We were rarely in the room, only to sleep and get ready for the nights out. Playa den bossa is the place to stay in Ibiza!
