1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2011

Yes this hotel is central and very handy for beach etc. However very noisy so no hope of rest if you fancy a night off the partying. There are plenty of other much nicer, cleaner and quieter hotels in the area which are also good for accessing various attractions. I wont be staying here again.

We stayed in the Bossa Mar Apartments (formally Bora Bora Apartments) for four nights during the Ibiza Closing Parties.

We were a bit dubious as the rating of the apartments were 1 star, but as these were part of the Jet Complex – normally a very high quality of accommodation, we thought that they would be okay. DO NOT BE FOOLED!

We arrived at the jet apartment’s reception to check in – and were treated very rudely by the hotel staff. Pushy, abrupt and extremely unhelpful!

We arrived at the apartment after a long wait, to find the lounge area, bathroom and bedroom – including the beds, covered in hair! The rooms had clearly not been cleaned and were NOT ready for us.

The shower was SALT WATER, including the bathroom sink, and the kitchen sink. Make sure you buy bottled water to clean your teeth in – it is not pleasant! The shower consists of a dirty shower curtain, and a whole in the ground so beware, it floods!

All three of us were bitten by bed bugs on the first night, we thought they may be just mosquito bites – however, my doctor has confirmed that they were in fact bed bugs.

We spent 50 euros on a deposit for the air conditioning in the room. It worked fine, however the remote went missing – and the people in the apartment next door said the maid had taken it and cashed in our deposit – do not be fooled by this! It is worth hiding it.

Our apartment was on the ground floor and one night we had to call the police on a rowdy Spaniard that was harassing us for drugs….. hotel security were extremely unhelpful and rude and told us to just lock our apartments and stop moaning!

On our last day (whilst trying to find the air conditioning remote) we came across bags of drugs stashed underneath the mattress.

The only saving grace was the location of these apartments – one minute from Bora Bora Beach party.

Bossa Mar Apartments are not for the faint hearted – do NOT stay here!!!

Room Tip: Don't stay here!

Booked in with my friend for a lively holiday in September this year. I urge anyone who likes a shed of privacy to not stay in these apartments. Had no cleaning svs in the nine days we stayed there shower flooded entire room also when used it was reported but not fixed in our entire stay. The noise is unbearable rooms change occupiers frequently. Had one set of neighbours who smashed furniture against the wall in the early hours of the morning. The Icing on the cake was the last two days when around 12 people high on drugs partied next to our balcony we couldnt open the door for the noise, and i woke one day to find one of them walking around my living area looking through my cases he had broken in, Anyone with any shred of decency I urge NOT TO STAY HERE it is dangerous. I am taking legal action against the holiday company that sent me there, I will add also bugs in the bed sheets woke up with bites on my leg, Reception staff unsympathetic to my complaints spent the last night sat with a knife in the bedroom hoping I would not be broken into again. DO NOY STAY

We stayed in this apartment the first week of September.
When we arrived the room was not very clean, the decor was bad (two separate sofas becoming bed, awful), windows won't close well, which let all the heat outside come into the room.
The bathroom is dated too, worn out with bath water and smelly and greasy.
Air conditioning not working for three days despite repeated complaints at the reception, considering that the room was exposed to the sun all afternoon, the room temperature was too high.
Kitchen was dated with poor equipment, electronic door lock had several malfunctions, forcing us to stay out of the room several times.
The only good thing was the location as convenient to the beach and various bars.
Overall I would not recommend!

I travelled to Ibiza together with a good friend of mine and decided to look for basic accommodation in one of the best places on the island. Because it was a short stay and our main purpose was to party about all the time, with some sea and sun breaks :), we didn't look for spectacular comfort. We booked one apartment at Bossa Mar (or Bora Bora Apartments as it is now known) because we wanted to be close to the madness. But we were not close to the madness, we were in the middle of it...

When we arrived for the check-in, late in the night, the receptionist asked if we like house music. That was because the apartment we received was at the ground floor, near the terrace(with drinks, music and fun almost non stop). Needless to say we were practically going on the terrace (where music was being played) from our balcony.

We were not bothered by the music at the terrace because we were heading home from clubs in the morning at 7 a.m. and leaving for beach at about 10 a.m. And this was the time that music was stopped. But be very careful if you wish to have your beauty sleep every night and stay here, one is not compatible with the other.

Please don't expect luxury here, actually the apartments are very basic. Good thing that our apartment was clean, towels were changed every day. The furniture is basic and I cannot give you details about the little kitchen because we never used it...

Bora Bora Apartments (or Bossa Mar) are about 300 m from Space and close to the bus stop. But if you are not travelling on long distances cabs can help you save some time, although you spend some extra money. We paid about 22 Eur to Amnesia and didn't wait the scheduled bus that never comes when you want it.

Great positioning, lots of fun and good music, NOT recommended for families with children or any other people who wish to sleep during the night.

We went to Ibiza for the nightlife. Noise and parties were not a problem for us.
The fact that the Bora Bora beach club was directly outside the apartment made for a lively and noisy atmosphere from 2pm to 2am every day. It was great - just like being at a festival!

The apartment was very spacious and had everything you could want. The balconies were nicely laid out looking onto the pool. The cleaning wasn't 100% and the key cards magnetic strip kept getting wiped so we had to go to reception a few times to get this reset. The staff at reception were very helpful.

We felt we got great value for money for an early June break, although if the prices soar for high season it might be worth re-considering.
