We stayed at the Hotel Garbi from the 21st -28th Aug on a half board basis and found the hotel clean and well kept with very good food and service throughout our stay from all the staff. The hotel is next to the beach with beautiful sea views from most rooms; the pool area has both sun and shade depending on your preference.
It is a good idea to check out the Spa and gym early on during your stay as it has a few treatments which might be to your liking and a first visit will be sure to promise another! I encouraged the wife to try her first massage and it turned out to be pleasant surprise - I think she was one of their more nervous customers. The beach stretches for miles and there are lots of things to see and do all the way along, and should you want to travel further afield, buses, taxis and scooter/car hire are readily available. The big night clubs charge higher prices for drinks but we thought the hotel prices acceptable compared to recent holidays in Italy and France. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the hotel to a friend and would be delighted to return on another occasion.
The hotel is situated in Playa den Bossa and is ten minutes from the airport costing 10-12 Euros in a taxi. The aircraft flight path is on view along the beach, but don’t let this put you off - we visited lots of the Island and didn’t find a better location to base our stay.
The half board option is a better choice in Playa den Bossa as nearby food options aren’t great.
Formentera is only 30 minutes away by boat - we used the jet which is dearer but has more daily crossings and probably wobbles less than the smaller boats; it is worth a visit. If you are confident on a bicycle or moped - you can visit more remote areas, otherwise stick to the main sites and use the local tour bus. (Walking is not an option). Es Pujols is a superb shallow cove.
A visit to SPACE night club – ‘Mondays Calling’ is free before 12pm with a wrist band available from the amazing area near Bora Bora. It gets busy - but even for the over 40/50’s its worth a visit - there were a few of us there! Look out for other discount options in this area if you are on a clubbing tour as entry prices can be costly.
The hotel does provide a safe deposit box option and this is worth considering.
Watch your wallet - I had a professional thief open a buttoned down short pocket whilst queuing for a bus as another tried to steal from another holiday maker at the crowded bus stop at Santa Eularia. I thought I was invincible, but was still a bit surprised when I realised I needed to take action.
