“Good value, great pool&location!”
Reviewed 27 August 2013 via mobile

Stayed here with my boyfriend and couple of friends august for 5 nights. Nice hotel really good location in bossa about 10-15 mins walk from the main strip where ushuia&space are located so away from really loud noise. Literally 5min walk across road to beach which you can walk along to reach bora bOra or stay at the quieter end if prefered.
Rooms are good size, aircon is powerful and are cleaned well! At first we were given a room on thr ground floor which was a little dingy and nothing to look at from the balcony but once we complained we were relocated the next day to the floor of our choice with a much brighter room. Our balcony door did not have a lock but the room felt safe enough. Beds were comfy! Few memory foam matresses between our group aswel!
Hotel guests are 90% italian. Not sure why but hey was kind of nice not to b surrounded by idiots your used to at home all the time!
Pools is good size! If u want a lounger you better get up early we just resorted to a lilo for the rest of the week! Drinks from pool bar are really reasonably priced didnt eat in the hotel so cant comment on this.
Would stay here again.
There is a small cafe literally across the road to the right that does an amazing cheese&ham toastie when you cannot face much else!

Stayed at the Mare Nostrum at the end of July 2013. Group of friends, boys and girls aged between 27-34. For what we needed it for (a base to sleep and wash) it was ideal.

Everything is clean and in good order and the location is pretty good, about 10 minutes from Space and Bora Bora etc.The bar is super cheap, and although we didn't eat at the hotel, other guests said it wasn't bad. The maid comes every day and the reception was really helpful. Taxi's pull up outside all the time too.

I've stayed all over Playa Den Bossa and although it isn't my favorite hotel I have stayed in, I would stay again if I wanted a cheap base whilst in Ibiza. Don't take your kids and don't expect a relaxing break.... It's Playa Den Bossa!

Room Tip: Not by the lifts

Hotel Mare Nostrum is an enigma that's in walking distance from Playa d'en Bossa. The hotel is old but not classic and the facilities themselves are run down in some areas but well kept in others. An example of this are the pool tables in the outdoor pool area - they are quite worn and are there for guests to kill some time near the pool. Go inside to the bar and there is a perfectly usable pool table that seems more maintained and playable.

If you're unfortunate enough to get a room that ends in -71 be prepared to get awaken by the constant buzz of people using the stairwell and elevators right outside of you door. If you can get over that, be prepared for the onslaught of chirping birds that have decided to roost in the block work in the stairwell.

The hotel staff were hit and miss as well. Some are quite happy to accommodate you whereas others won't give you the time of day.

No free wifi - It's 2013 and purchasing a 30 minute wifi voucher didn't work because I still couldn't connect to wifi in the lobby. (You're better off going across the street to the tiny cafe, having a breakfast Mahou and using their wifi).

This hotel provides the bare basics. You'll get a clean room near playa d'en Bossa but that's about it. If you're under 25, you'll probably love the drunken stupor atmosphere that the pool provides. If you're older, feel free to look elsewhere for accommodation.

We were nicely surprised at how good this hotel was. It's in a perfect location in playa den bossa, and a two minute walk to get the agua bus to ibiza town. The walls are a bit thin, but can't complain to much with the price you pay, and you are in ibiza so just take ear plugs. The hotel and rooms were spotless and all the staff were helpful and friendly. We would definitely go back. Hopefully next year!

I have just been there for 5 days full board, and it was not that bad.

The best thing about the hotel was its location in the heart of Platja d'en Bossa. It was 5 minutes walk to the Bora Bora, Ushuaia, and Space; 10 minutes to Pacha by car; and about 15 minutes to Amnesia and Privilege by car. Also, there are two cafeterias right in front of the hotel if you need to eat or drink at night. Moreover, the staff were helpful. And the house keeping was daily and quite good. In addition, the buffet varied daily, but not to a great extent, and some of food was delicious and some were awful, it's all down to your taste really.

Also, they had a lot of activities and free drinks at day-time. Which was really great and not found in every hotel.

On the other hand, there were some downsides: a) the blackout curtains were awful, and they did not keep the lights out, so you have to bring a sleeping mask, b) the house keeping did not put new shampoo nor shower gel, so you have to go get them yourself from her, c) the air conditioner in room 1115 had an annoying sound and woke me up at one night, and I called for a fix next day and the maintenance guy came and just removed the air filters, hit the AC for a quick fix and left...so he did not fix the problem and removed the filters for me to inhale dust all night long. The temporarily fix was to hit the AC in a certain area so the cracking sound goes away.

I recommend this hotel only if you do not forget your sleeping mask and earplugs, and you do not stay in the room for a long time.

Room Tip: Sleeping mask & ear plugs are your best friend in Ibiza.

Super clean hotel. Room cleaned daily - towels and linen replaced. Comfy beds - we even got a proper double! Friendly staff. Great location for Bora Bora beach, Ushuaia, Space, Sankeys etc.
Only negatives are thin walls and lack of electrical sockets. Overall great value and would stay again.
