“Worst experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2006

Have just returned from the longest 2 days spent at the Playa Grande apartments. The nights were the worst with Italian lads shouting along the corridors and calling and banging on doors.
We moved apartment after one night as Italians were messing about in the pool at 3am with total lack of consideration for anyone attempting to sleep.
The second night was spent in the Alzorro apartments one block behind but this was no better, finally getting some peace at 6.15am. I have to say the accommodation was slightly better apart from a broken window.
There is no security at the apartments, anyone can walk from the street and into the blocks without any checks being made. I was told security cameras do not check the Alzorro block.
Following previous writers I totally agree with regard to food and drink. Breakfast in our case consisted of hard boiled eggs and mini frankfurters one morning and hardboiled eggs and bacon the second.

To sum up ... if you are a family or older couple don't waste your money on this all inclusive accommodation. It is sold as an 18-35's package and I wish I had read the reviews before booking.
The best part was coming home, relaxing it certainly wasn't.

You wont find many reviews on this place, not in English anyway. So i swore an oath to write one as soon as i returned.
Firstly the reason for the lack of reviews is that the hotel is very Spanish. While we were there it was 75% spanish, 10% italian, 10% german and the rest were a mixture, inc english.

The staff are very polite BUT speak very broken english.

The rooms are acceptable and quite large, each has a double room and a lounge where you have 2 additional beds. There is a telly and aircon BUT both cost an extra 10 euro's each, the air con is very good though.

Location is also very good, right on playa d'en bossa BUT not next door to be disturbed, as its tucked away. 5 mins to the beach, bery clse to Bora Bora. its also close enough to walk to the main road to get any bus around ibiza, not many other places in Bossa are.

The hotel is part of Hotel Noira next door, this is where you eat and it also has access to a very small BUT usefull gym with a load of free weights, although it would not pass any uk health and safety!

now on the all inclusive:

Food is awful, there is no better way to describe it. They provide breakfast lunch and dinner.

breakfast is bacon and some kind of egg, either the worst scrambled egg you will see or hard boiled, buffet style. There are 12 trays to use and they use just 2, such a poor selection. There are serials and fruit to get you by

Lunch, never bothered BUT very similar to dinner

Dinner, is some rancid looking meat, a plain pasta (sauce provided) salad an occiasionally a very strange spanish omellet (tastes dry and salty) and it doesnt really vary, sometimes a findus ham pancake. Its discusting, we ended up eating out most of the time

Drinks, these are great as it's all free if All inc and there are no exceptions and a great choise. The beer is Estrella and tastes great. You only get it in tiny cups BUT you can have as many as you want, its not to limit you, its so its easy for them to clear up. Wine's are on offer as well as vodka, sambooka, tequila etc... Most of our spanish friends seemed to be on all dayers


The pool is ok BUT with soo many drunk spanish rolling around it really wasnt peacefull, it was a mad house so we avoided it.

so overall i would give this a 5/10 for english people. The lack in marks is due to the lack of english, understanding english and the poor quality of the food.

If you want a cheap hotel in the best place in Bossa with free drink then this is the one for you!
