“Don't ever stay at Arlanza!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013

Unfortunately for us the reviews on here about theft are true, we had 900 euros, £50 and an iphone stolen from a locked suitcase whilst we were out at the beach one day. We came back to find the (very heavy duty) padlock lying on the bed with the zips still attached - they had cut the zips off to get into the case. When we spoke to the manager he just mumbled in Spanish that he couldn't help, so all we could do was file a police report for our insurance.

No doors or windows were forced so we can only assume whoever came into the room had let themselves in with a key. We also found a couple of towels dropped near the door...screamed cleaner to us.

They also took the spare key to our room so we spent our last 4 days terrified that someone would come back for the rest of our things, and ended up carrying everything about with us, including passports, and jumping at every noise.

Aside from this, the apartments are spacious but old and nothing works (aircon hanging off the wall), the windows don't lock and the walls may as well be made of paper as you can hear absolutely everything from all over the apartments.

We also had our door kicked in by someone off the street at 2am one evening, we can only presume he thought the place was empty as he ran off when we confronted him. Not exactly a secure complex!!!

If you can afford it, stay at the original Jet complex, so much nicer, much more vigilant on security and right on the beach.

Avoid Arlanza like the plague!!!!!

Certainly not the best place I've stayed at, but for its price, it was more than sufficient. The place was generally quite shabby in condition but everything worked fine. The water in the taps are brine, though, so we had to buy water to drink which was a bit of a hassle. The walls were really thin so it wasn't easy falling asleep (a lot of people are quite rowdy)...unless you had just come back really tired from the clubs. Really good location that's a short walk to everything (like Bora Bora, Jet Apartments, supermarkets, etc.).

Can't really comment on the service because we didn't really have much interaction with the people there, besides paying for the room. Also didn't try the restaurant because it was pretty pricey.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor have good access to the pool, according to a friend who also stayed there.

The apartments were ok. Clean towels and toilet paper supplied regularly. People banging on doors shouting at all hours in the morning. Very thin walls! The pool was good as was the bar. Central to most things but i did think it would be a lot closer to the beach and Bora Bora. Not worth the money we paid.

Arlanza are part of the jet complex, but no where near it, good 15min walk to Bora Bora! The apartments were VERY basic, in the master bedroom, our curtains were a piece of material held up with a piece of string...we don’t mind having basic accommodation in Ibiza as hardly ever in the apartment, but this was not acceptable...Our bathroom sink was loose, so when brushing your teeth thought the place was going to collapse. The air conditioning was poor and I could blow colder wind out of my mouth, also the vent kept closing, so was rather useless. The shower was also useless, and the towels, would fit round my foot, so again, hardly worth having. The Jet complex is brilliant, but they have quiet clearly bought these apartments as an over flow and they just are not the same standard as the rest of Jet, and let’s face it Jet is basic, but an acceptable basic!! I would not stay here ever again...! No reception area, no security and the cleaners just placed toilet roll and towels outside the front door in a bin bag..Horrendous!!!

I have just returned from the closing parties, we stayed at Arlanza apartments in Playa Den Bosa, which as apartments are not too bad for the price. However security is terrible!!!
I was staying in a room with 5 other lads and we had a total of 2 ipods, 1 ipad, 1 blackberry, £40 and a pair of raybans stolen from our room!!
we suspect an inside job as there was no forced entry and the cleaners were hanging around our flat waiting for us to leave on the night we were robbed!
The fact that the man at reception was so unhelpful and all of a sudden couldnt speak English anymore (when he could earlier in the week) only increased our suspiscion! Luckily we have a couple of Spanish speakers in our group so we managed to get some info out of him but he basically didnt care at all!

I am an experienced Ibiza visitor and I know this happens all over the island so I'm afraid Arlanza can be added to long list of dodgy apartments! If you're looking for cheap apartments next season I would avoid this place unless you dont mind running the risk of returning home minus a few things!!

the hotel itself is fine for the money but be prepared to come home with a lot less than you went out with. on the first day 2 of my friends got their bags stolen and when they said they would call the police they got all the contents of their bags back in a plastic bin bag. then 2 days later my boyfriends room got robbed and 2 ipods, an ipad, money and a mobile phone got stolen. there was no sign of a break in but their beds had clean sheets on them but the room had not been cleaned, so it was obviously an inside job and when they went to the reception to tell someone the guy could not have given 2 hoots and just told them to go to the police!! when they went to the police it was closed!! terrible end to a great holiday.

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!
