“Lovely Hotel”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Stayed for 4 nights in May. It is located on the main Bossa strip right on the beach, saying that we did not have any trouble sleeping. The hotel is very very clean and looks just like all the pics.

Had a 4th floor standard room with side sea view with balcony. Only gripe with the room is it would have been nice to have a kettle. The breakfast buffet has a great selection of hot and cold food and you can have something cooked fresh as well.

The first day we could not get a sunbed by the pool as it was packed with towels on the beds so could do with having some more as it is a big hotel. Also they have (posh) beds to rent which should be free as you already pay to stay there.

The beach bar has some lovely food so would def recommend you try it and it is very reasonable, I had the goats cheese salad it was lovely.

All the staff were friendly and helpful throughout our stay and nothing was too much trouble.

Room Tip: All have side sea views I think.

Stayed here with four mates in June 2013, fantastic location just down the beach from bora bora and Ushuaia but quiet enough to chill if you want. Great wi-fi, clean rooms nice pool, food was fine. Highly recommend!

stayed at the Garbi 4/5 to 8/5 on recommendation by a friend. the hotel exceeded all our expectations. just had a standard room but was great and even got great pool and sea view as we were on the 4th floor. we had half board and the food was superb. lots of choice, never needed lunch! the pool area is gorgeous and for 20 euros you can hire a lovely cabana by the pool to relax on. normal sundeds around the pool are free. over the bank hol the sunbeds were full early on (annoying british big groups placing their towels down!), after the hotel seemed quieter and sunbeds always available just a shame the pool was so cold. i couldn't brave it! wifi signal a bit hit and miss depending where in hotel you were! the spa is out of this world. we went every night about 7pm, the different water jets and showers are amazing. a perfect way to relax after a hard days sunbathing. as it was early may the resort was quite quiet, but it suited us and we will be back next year. Thank you Hotel Garbi.

Room Tip: high floor facing pool/sea if you can

We stayed 1 week in May 2014. Located right on Bossa beach and walking distance from Space. Our stay included breakfast and dinner, lovely staff in the restaurant and the manager there is brilliant. Very observant and caring.
Room was clean and nice, nothing to complain about really. Nice pool area, but freezing pool and freezing to swim in the ocean this early in May. I wish we hade gone a bit later since Ibiza at this time was a bit quiet.

Hotel is about 10-15 minutes from the airport, taxi will cost you about 12-13 Euros. Taxi to Ibiza town is 8-9 Euros and there is also a bus running outside the hotel every 30 minutes which is 2 euros to Ibiza town.

Friendly staff in the reception, very proffessional and excellent servicequality. I would stay at Garbi again.

My sister and I stayed at this hotel for four nights beginning 5th May. I have visited many hotels but this was one of the most friendliest, welcoming hotels I have been to. We were greeted by every staff member with a Hola and a
smile. Nothing was too much trouble.

As it was my sister's birthday when we were there, I arranged for her to be surprised with a cake and champagne. This was given to her at breakfast and all the staff in the restaurant sang "Happy Birthday" to her.

We stayed in the Superior Suite and the view was phenomenal. We had a pool view and a sea view. Watching the sun rise from your balcony was beautiful.
The room was spacious and very modern. The hotel was spotless.

We stayed half board. There was a wide choice of food and it was delicious. Everyday was different.

We went into the spa on our last day and this was amazing. I wish we used it more but we didn't have the time to fit everything in to our 3 days that we wanted to do.

The hotel is on the beach and everyday we walked along the beach to Nassau Beach Bar. This is a place to go if you want to be relax on a beach bed and being waited on in Lovely
surroundings.

One evening we had a taxi ( rank just opposite the hotel)to Cafe Del Mar in San Antonio Bay to watch the sunset. This was about 25 euros each way but it is something you have to see.

Overall my first experience
Of Playa Den Bossa was pleasant.But what made our holiday were the staff at Hotel Garbi. Professional,well mannered and helpful.

The hotel is worth 5 stars based on our experience. Clean,Modern,And lovely food.

Thank you Garbi, you made my sister's birthday one to remember! I'm already looking at booking another holiday with you! :-)

The Hotel is located at Playa d´en Bossa which is about 10 min and € 9,00 (by taxi) away from Ibiza town. Right around the Hotel there are plenty of bars and restaurants as well as night clubs. The Hotel inculding our room was clean and very good maintananced. I have to add, that we arrived one day after they opened up for the season. So for sure they do a very good job, the time the Hotel is closed. I can not say anything about the conditions during main season. The furniture in the room was OK but quiet unspectacularly. A bin was missing but the bath room was quiet big. The balcony (with sea view, overlooking the pool) was furnished with two chairs and a table. The walls seem to be quiet thin but that is no exception on Ibiza / in Spain. The Mini bar in the room is not filled but that is no problem as there is a super market right across the street. Soft drinks and beer can be purchased at a vendor maschine in the stair case. W-LAN is for free (up to three devices per room). The pool might be a little small in main season. They provide very comfortable, large lounge-sun beds (for 2 persons) at the pool for a fee of € 20,00 per day, which is OK in my opinion. The regular sun beds are for free. What a pity, they do not provide sun beds on the beach area in front of the Hotel. Maybe there is no permission for it!? I did not care as it is just € 8,00 by taxi to get to Coco Beach :-)
The staff was quiet friendly (very friendly at the bar). It was irritating for me, that they charged the full stay upon arrival (even if they had my card on file and already charged a deposit). But that´s their policy and finally you have to pay at some point anyway. If I would come back for a romance trip with my girl friend I would look for another place (nice finca or something). For anything else the Garbi is recommendable!
PS: I can not say anything about the food as I didn´t have any there.

We booked this hotel based on a number of factors back in October last year.

We researched and read all reviews before deciding on Hotel Garbi and it did not disappoint!

The journey from the airport to the hotel was one of the quickest I have ever experienced and yet I couldn't have felt further from the airport surround by shops on one side of the hotel and a beautiful beach on the other.

The hotel itself was lovely, the décor was eye catching, use of colours and furniture creates a fantastic atmosphere and the hotel is very clean!

The pool area itself was beautiful and well laid out, extremely clean and well maintained. Whilst it was not huge, the first 2 days we were there we had plenty of room and space but on our last day many more people had arrived and all sunbeds were in use. You could feel the difference and the pool sides looked full but it was still lovely. You also had use of the beach directly outside and that was great!

The rooms - great size I was sharing with 2 others girls, rooms were clean and well maintained, spacious with plenty of wardrobe space which was great. Only issue we had was lack of wall sockets and no mirror next to any of the sockets! Beds were comfortable and although there was a mini fridge ours wasn't working (and I think others said theirs wasn't to, perhaps we had to pay? we never checked) The safe deposit box was a charge of 4euro per day & 20euro deposit.

Food at the hotel was delicious we booked half board and the breakfasts and dinners were great, good choice, well cooked and yummy! We ate lunch in the pool bar on the last day and it was delicious!!

Staff - Probably the best I have come across in any hotel, not one complaint all staff were friendly, approachable and helpful especially the Public Relations Manager Richard, an absolute asset to the hotel and great to have someone who could speak English and Spanish fluently! Nothing was too much trouble!
Micky in hotel bar, makes the most delicious of cocktails on an evening and the atmosphere is great with music and dance floor space. Just a shame the bar closes at 2am.

Spa - Well one of the girls and I checked this out on our last day, it was beautiful and were thrilled it is free to hotel guests the facilities are some of the best I have seen and whilst the area was not huge we were lucky enough to have to share with only a handful of people whilst we were in there.

Location - NO COMPLAINTS I definitely preferred Playa d'en Bossa to San Antonio although we travelled there on a couple of occasions. Easy access to shops from one side and the beach the other a few of the group even wandered along to Bora Bora beach.

Activities - Whilst there we went to Pacha and Space although out of season we managed to catch the Lovin Ibiza Festival so they were fairly busy. Our highlight of the entire trip was a sunset cruise on a speed boat with jet skis and water sports booked through Mamboats (http://mamboats.com) we travelled to San Antonio Port which cost approx. 25 euro per taxi (one way) it was worth every penny. Seeing the Ibiza sunset in style on a beautiful boat on the ocean outside Ibiza! We were let down by another company Take off Ibiza and Mamboats stepped up to the mark again and was able to take us out again definitely made our holiday!

If you plan on a stay in Ibiza with friends or couples this hotel is perfect! Look no further!! See you next year Hotel Garbi!!

Room Tip: We were very lucky all our rooms were on the 4th floor and we all had balconies which looked out on...
