“Paradise in Ibiza”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

The Hotel Garbi was lovely and I have stayed in a few Ibiza hotels in the past 10 years! It is a clean, tidy and the location was ideal for the Playa d'en Bossa area. A very modern looking hotel with great food and the staff where very helpful. I would definitely go back there in the future.

This is the perfect hotel to stay in Ibiza if you come to Ibiza for party. I will come back for sure and only stay at this hotel in Ibiza.
- Location is perfect, right next to the beach, close to all shops, bars, restaurants; short walk to Space & Ushuaia;
- Rooms are very comfortable with beautiful ocean and pool views; the shower is just perfect that you do not want to come out of it;
- The Spa is so comfortable that you can easily stay there all day long;
- The swimming pool is very nice and all the warm lightings make you feel so comfortable;
- Breakfast is very good and free; 18euro per head buffet dinner is just amazing money for value, because the food are just so good, and so many choices;
- Staff are very friendly, with German speaking concierer; and the staffs at the spa are super friendly;
- I was there with friends when the World Cup final was on, and they put up the big TV screen with German speaking channel, and great bar service.
So an overall perfect hotel with only 1 small downside: weak wifi.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean & hotel pool view. Spa visit is a must and it is free.

We have just returned from the Hotel Garbi. My husband and i were there for a week and i would agree with other reviewers in that this is an excellent hotel!! Spotlessly clean, very friendly staff and in an excellent position right on the beach. We always holiday in ibiza, this was the first time in play d'en bossa for almost 11 year and this hotel was the right choice. The only gripe i had was that the meals were sometimes only warm, which really spoilt mealtimes for me .The reception staff are very welcoming and the gentleman who welcomes you into the restaurant is the best !!!! I would like to advise anyone travelling to playa d'en bossa to take plenty spending money! As i said we always holiday in ibiza and found almost everything double the price of anywhere else.

The Garbi is actually an old hotel spruced up but they have done a good job and works as a 4 star hotel in a hit and miss area for hotels. It also provides good value for money if you get the right deal. The breakfast is good and the room's clean, if a little dated. The spa is also good and i recommend if anyone stays to visit. There are never enough sun loungers but then i guess there never is. Overall i would recommend staying here for groups and couples less so for families and thats the area in general.

The hotel is super well located. Very clean and great service, excellent amenities, great swimming pool and right on the beach. If you are a backpacker looking for noisy loud speakers this place is not for you though such places are walking distance from the hotel. Recommended for friends and couples 28 years and above. the Beach restaurant is excellent where you can fine dine while enjoying the beach, beachers passing by, suntan and sunset etc... pool level rooms are recommended.

Room Tip: Pool level rooms are recommended.

Perfect hotel for Ibiza. The location is great and is near all the clubs and on the beach. It is really chilled out atmosphere which is what you need when hungover from a night clubbing. You can just chill out by the pool all day. The only thing I would say is that it is expensive but then most of Ibiza is, I paid 16 euros for a cesear salad and diet coke at the Garbi restaurant which I thought was really expensive. We had the breakfast included which was really good, just a wide buffet of hot foods or croissants and fruit. The rooms were really comfy and spacious, good beds. I definitely recommend.

We have just come back from 10 nights in a superior room at the garbi and this hotel is beautiful, modern, clean and with the most lovely helpful staff. We were in room 418, what a fantastic room with a view of the beach and the sea. Great for people watching at all hours!

The hotel from the outside looks amazing, It's all lit up at night with a club called swag on one side connected to it and a cocktail bar called Iconic (I think) connected on the other side. It looks like a party peoples hotel from the outside but to my surprise it was more of a family hotel, with mainly Germans who's stay here. The place is great for the peace and quiet but don't expect to find many party goers to mingle with at night at the bar. We often meet like minded people in Ibiza and have a few drinks on their/our balconies but we didn't get this from this hotel which is a shame. Expect a few looks on the way to your room if coming home at 9am! The club Swag never looked busy but with the right PR they could have a right good underground club, they have the ultimate location for it 40 seconds away from Sankeys, and a cocktail bar which could offer really good drink deals before hand....just an idea garbi! ;)

The room was fantastic though, if you can afford an upgrade, go for it! The modern look of the lighting against the textured pearled walls was just lovely at night, really contemporary decoration. We would sit on the balcony at night waving the planes coming in which was great to watch. If you looked up the beach to the right you could see the borabora parties at dinner time only a 2 min walk up the beach, with space and ushauia a further 3 min walk. The bathroom shower is fantastic with 2 shower heads with various settings. If you rely on the products the hotel provide, although good, there is no conditioner which is a must when beside the sea. Also the bathroom door is glass and see through so maybe not a problem if sharing with a partner but if it's with a pal maybe not so good???
The only two negatives I found with the room was there was no kettle...I need my cup of green tea after a heavy night at space! That's my secret anyway lol! The situation was rectified by purchasing one from the shop across the road. Also, we expected a double bed but got two single beds pushed together with separate covers. When spending the kind of money they ask for a superior room I would expect to get a full double or king bed. The air con though is first class! Couldn't ask for better, best we have experienced by far!

The pool area is really clean and beautiful and by night with the lights on even more so, but like most other reviewers of the hotel I must agree that there is not enough sun beds for the capacity of the hotel. The problem is exacerbated by people placing towels down to reserve them even though the hotel forbid it. An example of this would be four beds were reserved beside us when we went down at 9am, come 3pm still no one had come to use them. We mentioned to the pool attendant who tries his very best to accommodate everyone and is great at what he does.
The one thing that was a real negative for me was the dj at the pool. I was expecting chilled out Balearic beats, perfect for around the pool, drifting in and out of sleep, not too loud not to quiet, nice feeling tunes but to our disappointment it was a weird versions of well known songs like the cranberries music with Dolly Parton words mixed into it, it was truly terrible and a real disappointment. It would get slightly better after a couple of hours but at one point we were listening to the pink panther! It was maybe to cater for the Germans taste instead??? But it wasn't acceptable for around the pool in playa den bossa! But if you take your own music down and earphones that problem is sorted straight away! The big and small pool are both great and there is a jacuzzi outside as well at a cooler temperature which was fine when it sun was at its hottest.

The chill grill is their beach side restaurant which had lovely healthy quality food. We had a caprase salad each then the Kobe burger and a pasta dish. Beautifully cooked and presented but quite pricey. Was great for a visit though.

The food in the hotel is 5*, breakfast is in buffet style with a fab selection of foods to cater for all tastes from 7.30am to 10.30am. Dinner was also of the same quality, with great variety served from 7pm to 10pm. Dinner cost 18 euros each per person which is very reasonable , drinks are payed for separately.

The spa is a must visit! It's amazing! Not for under 16's. Great way to start or finish your day, opens at 10am and shuts at 8pm.

Over all, this hotel is fantastic, great if you like to party but also like to come back to a quiet room. Great location, right in the thick of it all, taxi rank outside, lovely places to eat around you and well looked after by such lovely staff.

Thank you for a great stay Hotel Garbi!

Tip: Ask for sea or pool view room or treat yourself and get a superior room
