“Tired and dated, more like 18-30's hotel”
Reviewed 29 July 2011

This place was reasonably priced or so we thought until we arrived, it has been recently taken over by the Jet Apartments who are a well known brand in Playa den Bossa, stuck to nice big new sign of the plac e but not spent any money of it thats for sure!
We have a room for 5 persons booked, there is no reception just a small hut which inst manned all day, very slow check in as the man spoke no eniglish at all, finally showed us to the room, it could easily have slept 6 with the large living area with 2 sofa beds (would have kept cost down for us instead of booking 2 separate apartments). Air con was included in price which we thought was a bonus until we realised only 1 unit worked! The bath plug hole was blocked with hair and grime that must have been there months and the cleaners just ignored it because as soon as you put the shower on the water didnt go down! i ended up unblocking it myself with a knife as none of my group would go near it, suprise suprise no one around to complain too, there was also no toilet seat, basic stuff. The apartment was supposed to be ffreshly cleaned by maids but must have had there eyes closed as floor was filthy. We did catch up with the guy the following day who sorted ouy the toilet seat and sent someone to try fix aircon in bedrooms but it made it worse and then kept tripping the main unit so we gave up and just left it off in bedrooms. He also came out to show us how to work the gas bottle that was connected to the cooker as there were no instructions. The maids came once in a week to empty bins and give us a new set of towels but didnt take dirty ones or clean. The rest of the time we took own own rubbish to bins on the street behind hotel. The pool was grimy and we didnt use, know the area well so stayed out as much as possible, there was a small bar open until around 10pm each day, no security after this point. The apartments were full of loud guests so dont expect to get much sleep, we are all party people but that took the biscuit. I wont go back unless they spend some money of the place!

I thought the rooms were ok full of ants though...
pool was fine... good location close to beach shops restaurants etc...
we weren't leaving for the airport until the evening they charged us €12 to keep our bags everywhere else I've stayed it was free.... the choice to keep the room was not an option... when we returned to the hotel (to sit by the pool waiting for the time to come that we could leave) we were told that the bottles of mineral drinks we had purchased from the nearby shop were not allowed to be consumed on their premises... we had to buy drinks from the bar to keep cool in the sweltering heat!!!
I would not stay there again!

No i don't like my stay there, in fact i'm very ANGRY about about my stay at this hostel. When i payed for 5 days, i figured out, that the hotel was a nightmare, because of the noisy guests there and the missing of any rules at all for the guests of the hotel. The thing is, that i/we could hear everything from the 3-4 flours beneath us, and my inpresion of the hotel is, that is very BAD place to stay. P.s if you are thinking to stay in that hotel/hostel, then pay only for one singel night, because they don't give any money back if you deside to check out earlier !! So you don't feel cheatet like us as costimer!!!!

This hotel was a great bang for your buck.

WHAT WE LOVED:
The location was ideal, as it was a few blocks from the beach. The taxi stand was a block away in addition to the bus stop (if you can figure out the bus schedule). This hotel was also a few steps away from a restaurants/cafes/bars and one of the bigger clubs in the area, Space. In addition, the cab fare from this location to Ibiza Town was only about $10 which was nice that we were central to both Ibiza Town and somewhat central to San Antonio. The guy who checked us in was really nice (when we were able to track him down). Most importantly, we loved the price. It was dirt cheap for the space you were getting (ours had 2 bedrooms and a living room) and a nice balcony. There was also a nice pool area that we didn't use but it seemed to have good music and a few people hanging out and about at all times.

NOT SO HOT:
The elevator was ultra slow so it was better to walk up the stairs, which wasn't a problem for us since we were only on the 4th floor but I can see how it would be for others higher up. Also, when you go check in or out, there is no one to be found. You have to stand around and wait or call the post it stuck on the door to have someone come check you in or out. If you're running late for a flight this could be an issue. In the room, our bathroom light went out but this wasn't a huge deal - we grabbed the lamp from the bedroom and stuck it in the bathroom. Lastly, you can hear the people in the other rooms talking (but that didn't bother us - we were only there for 2 days and never in our room).
