Reviewed 25 June 2012

Good 3 star hotel. Very clean. The all-inclusive was good, food a bit repetitive but thats always the case in all-inclusive. The drinks were free flowing and strong and even included several cocktails in the all-inclusive option. The rooms and communal area all very clean.Nice pool area. Some people commented the staff were rude i didnt find this they just werent over friendly as they were very busy in there jobs. I would stay here again and its only a 15 minutes walk into Ibiza town which i did several times on my own

We want to apologize for the inconveniences suffered. We are working hard to ensure that these situations do not happen in the future and we have a night watchman to prevent noise, when clients come to the hotel after parties.
On the other hand, we will take note of your comments about the food, and try to increase the offer.
We really hope you can visit us another time and enjoy this fantastic island!!!
Kind regards,
The Management

The hotel has everything you need, it has lots of facilities, lovely staff and in a good location.

Food - lots of choices; 4-5 different meats, veg, salad bar, pasta bar, desserts and drinks. Food hall/dining room is big and spacious
Facilities - tennis court and football pitch could do with a bit of care but was ok. Pool is big and deep! Goals for playing ball etc can get very busy at the pools but the beach is a 2 min walk and its lovely. There is also a gym there but just got weights etc. There are also arcade games, table tennis and a kids playarea.
Beach - v.close, clean, quieter, can snorkel.
Shops / restaurants - there is a Spar across the road which has everything u may need.
Drinks - the bar can get busy and plastic cups maybe small but they r plastic cos next to pool. Bar staff were polite and if they seemed moody so would u if uve served people the same drinks all day!
Rooms - comfortable, cleaned everyday, walls maybe thin but ur paying budget prices! Tv available and balcony had table and chairs!
Evening entertainment - wasnt amazing but was amusing lol

Overall the hotel was lovely, had no issues and would recommend!

We booked this hotel despite the bad reviews it got & i'm happy to say our stay in this hotel was enjoyable. We stayed the last week in May. We arrived half hour before check in time of 2pm & we could check into our room as it was ready. The check in was fast & receptionist was friendly. Our room was basic but clean & was cleaned daily by the friendly housekeeping staff. The balcony overlooked the playground & tennis courts & we enjoyed sitting out there every nite having pre drinks watching the sun set before hitting the town. We didnt eat in the hotel so I cant comment on the food. Bar staff were polite, no problem ordering two drinks at a time & always given the option of plastic or glass. The night porter is extremely friendly & very helpful.The pool area was clean with plenty of chairs & loungers. There was a nightly entertainment show, but we always ate & drank out so never got to experience it. The walls in the room are a little thin so i can understand how other reviewers got frustrated with music etc. We were unforunate to only experience one early morning wakeup from the guests next door arguing. Only real problem we had was our key not working the second day. We went to reception with the problem & they gave us another key which didnt work so we had to return to reception again, they straight away called maintenance & he came to our room with key & had the key working within 15mins and we had no other problem with the key for the reminder of our holiday. The hotel has a bus stop outside which can bring you to centre of playa d'en bossa or ibiza town costs only 1.85 euro & runs every 20mins which was great. The beach is only 5mins walk from the hotel, there is two cheap restaurants across the road which are opened early morning to late at night. There is also a Spar Shop with plenty of breads, magazines, snacks & alcohol, etc. I would definitely stay in this hotel again.

Believe the anti-hype, this place is straight out of the 80's in decor, and contrary to some reviews it is not spotless either. We stayed there last year and while they do clean up, there was mildew in the toilet and specs of limescale and rust around the bath/toliet and a rank vent that lead to exposed wires and pipes. The room was stuffy and had literally no fringe benefits, no fridge to keep a bottle of water and a probably the least inviting hotel room we have ever stayed at. Its budget 18 year old on a first holiday fodder and the general clients seemed to be young Italians?Spanish on cheap holidays. I stayed in nicer rooms while budget travelling in Latin America.

The food is absolutely the worst aspect, it was the cheapest nastiest bargain basement breakfast we have ever eaten - bitter coffee, cheap battery farm eggs and a juice machine that serves squash. Even the fruit seems plastic, it’s like all taste has been removed from absolutely everything so from morning 1 we avoided the breakfast area for anything other than a quick cuppa.

We tried to get moved but sadly to avail due to cost or circumstance we had to stay there. I complained to The Flight Centre about the genuine dismay staying at the Mare Nostrum caused us, it took 6 months of chasing to get a very ambivalent compensation offer which I refused on principle and cut my losses.

They sided with the hotel who after finally bothering to reply to the e-mails some many months or so later, refuted everything we said which pretty much sums up their attitude to genuine feedback and quality. Okay, I had no illusions that a hotel in bossa on a cheap break would be off the charts beautiful and classy, but minimum standards of feel good factor were completely absent. Flight Centre were partly to blame here for placing us in a 2* when we had specified a 3*.

I will say this - I didn't find the staff all that bad as others did but I do speak a little Spanglish which may have helped us get some brownie points. I hate being critical but I have to speak honestly, and we attempted to address these points with the hotel but they were not interested.
I give it a poor not a terrible only because minimum standards of cleaning were in place and this place my be just your cuppa if you are really young and simply need a place to crash after a night raving. That's the nicest thing I can say.
