The facilities are wonderful - great pool, spa and beach access. The breakfast is really good with a great range of options. If Hotel Garbi was located elsewhere, it arguably would not be worth the price you pay however positioned in Playa d'en Bossa, it stands out as a classier/more sophistocated alternative. In the saying that, I really wanted to love this hotel as I feel it has so much potential but below you will find the negative experiences my group and I experienced:
I stayed in a triple share room with 2 friends and would discourage anyone from choosing this option. The third 'bed' was literally a sheet placed over a normal couch, which wasn't comfortable to begin with. It was really hard and uncomfortable and for the price we were paying, we felt it was ridiculous.
While we encountered some lovely staff members during our stay, we felt that some of the reception staff were not very accommodating. I can understand how tiresome it would be for the staff dealing with countless drunk and wild hotel guests however this was not us. For example, one morning we went to the reception to get information on the ferry to Formentera and the gentleman who responded literally threw the brochure at us and said "here." Side note: if you are staying in Ibiza for a few nights, I would encourage you to visit Formentera. Catch a ferry from the port in Ibiza Town directly to Formentera and then you will need to catch a bus, taxi or hire a car/scooter to reach the beautiful beaches.
Don't go to the hotel restaurant. The restaurant boasts beautiful views and is conveniently located in the hotel however our whole group (10+) were put off by our experiences. We counted 8+ wait staff on duty in the restaurant and it was an awkward time in the afternoon so the restaurant was almost empty, however, it took over 20 minutes to even receive menus. After asking twice, menus were chucked onto our table with handfuls of knives and forks that flew everywhere. My partner ordered fried calamari rings and as he was eating, discovered that one of the pieces was actually fried plastic. The waiter insisted that it was part of the squid. My partner tore it apart and it was sure enough plastic. The waiter offered to bring a new plate but being put off, my partner asked if it could just be taken off the bill. The waiter initially refused to take the plate off the bill but eventually did. All of my group had a similar negative story of poor service/rude staff.
