5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

Just a flying visit this time, but as usual, EsVive did not disappoint. We were welcomed like members of the family, with staff remembering us well. Alex in particular made us feel exceptionally welcome (he really is the star there) and Scott in the amazing roof top terrace was delightful as always. Well done EsVive, keep up the good work..... can't wait for our next visit!!

My girlfriend and I arrived in Ibiza not quiet knowing what to expect as far as where we were staying. Es Vive is without a doubt a hidden gem in Ibiza. We were pretty stressed out from all the travel we had done previously and just needed to relax. Check in was smooth and we were greeted by the front desk staff as if we had stayed there many times before. We ended up getting amazing massages at the Spa about an hour or so after check in. Cant say enough about the service we received at the pool, restaurant, and club on property. We felt that every employee we interacted with went above and beyond to accommodate us. Raquel was our absolute favorite employee. By the end of the stay we actually felt like we had become real friends with her. She actually took the time out to get to know us and tell us about herself. Raquel gave us a ton of tips not only about Ibiza but also for Madrid which was the next leg of our trip. Also want to thank the Es Vive chauffeur and Front Desk staff for the recommendation to visit Formentera Beach, truly a great place. Don't forget to check out the rooftop deck!

We went to Es Vive for our first girls holiday after having our kids and we made the best possible choice. It's located in a great position on the island only a max 25 mins from the furthest away of areas. We visited the Marina, Ibiza Town, Cage Del Mar. But most of all I have never known service like it truly outstanding nothing was a problem and any drink was there in seconds. The good was second to none and Jason was so knowledgable on the best places to go and Juan from Deco was the best. We also used the spa which was beautiful and the therapist and treatment outstanding. All in all you will not regret staying here even just for 5pm mojitos on the roof terrace xx

Dear Kristin,

Thank you for sharing your feedback from your stay at the hotel. It really is a great honour to learn that you were so pleased with the service provided by our staff. We have become known for our attentive and friendly staff, and it is a great compliment to have our efforts recognised via Tripadvisor.

Also, as you mentioned the hotel´s central location is a huge bonus as it is literally a stones throw away from the beach, Ibiza town, Playa den Bossa, the clubs, many restaurants, and all local amenities.

Thanks again, and we hope to see you again at Es Vive.

Kind Regards,

All the team.

The staff are amazing, friendly and so helpful. See Scott on the amazing roof bar who will sort you out a lovely cocktail and help you plan your stay, what the man doesn't know about Ibiza isn't worth knowing.
The pool DJ's make the day and although we went to beach clubs during our stay we were keen to get back to Es Vive to hear them getting you in the mood for the evening.
Breakfast is hearty and after a heavy night sorts you to a treat.
Cannot wait to go back again

Room Tip: Stay in the 3rd floor if you're a light sleeper as there's a club open from midnight till 7a...

We stayed in Es Vive for 4 nights in june 2014. We could not be more happy with our stay.
The first impression is a really nice - the look of the hotel gives a feeling of a trendy but still laid-back place.
We got a room on the highest floor with an amazing view over the pool and sea! The room is not very big, but oh what a great art deco vibe it gives. We had a big balcony and this gave the room a nice and more spacious feeling. All very clean with a comfortable bed. There is some noise from the people walking in and out of the hotel at night (and morning) but for me this what not a problem at all - you don´t go to Ibiza town to get your 8 hours sleep anyways.
The staff is just amazing. So warm and welcoming. No matter what you ask they will try and help you. Alex will put you on a list at the tower if you want or give you all the advice you will ever need about the island or Ibiza´s wonderful little sister Formentera.
The SPA in the hotel is surprisingly big and has a nice asian feng shui feel. Ruth is the only one who gives treatments here, but I can promise you they don´t need anyone else. She gave me the nicest treatments I have ever had (pedicure, thai and neck massage). Highly recommended!
The restaurant has really good food - both the lunch/pool menu and the dinner menu has good variety and the quality is at a really high standard.
The pool is quite small but has such a nice vice - there is a DJ here at daytime and we just loved staying there. A young, but not too young and really trendy place to spend your days. And, they have sun all day long. The roof terrace is also wonderful with a spectacular view.
There is a night club at the hotel which kind of surprised us because we didn't hear any noise from it the first night. Turns out they have really good soundproofing but I assume you can hear it on the first floor. This is the place to go and dance out what you may have left after your return from Pacha.
All in all this is a hotel with great location (you can easily walk to both playa d'en Bossa and the city - both about 15 minutes), amazing service and really good value for money.
I would definitely recommend Es Vive and cannot wait to come back!

Room Tip: We had a room at the end on the third floor facing the pool. Great view!

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review about our hotel! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, and hope to welcome you again in the near future.

You mention that your room was a little on the small side, and as we are a boutique hotel the room sizes vary, and some are smaller than others. However, each and every one is equipped with a luxuriously comfortable bed and decorated beautifully, in-keeping with the hotel´s Art Deco style. Also, it is due to the hotel´s intimate size that we are able to maintain the high levels of customer service that we are well known for!

We are sure Ruth from the spa will be very flattered when we tell her that you described her treatments as the best you have even received, and we will pass on your kinds words to Alex too.

Hoping to see you again soon,

The Es Vive Team.

.....I cannot rate this hotel any higher, I am well travelled, in fact I'd say I've been pretty much everywhere around the globe and this tiny boutique piece of magic is the only place I could call home from home. I've been visiting the island since 17, and stayed at Es Vive for the last 4 years after a friend told me about it's magic (I'm now 32) I know exactly what makes this place special, the STAFF, they know your name, they know what you need, they just know.....from Jason who co-own the property and is always visible throughout the day, to the glorious Alex and Raquel who tend to your every need around the pool and at breakfast and lunch and dinner! (Alex we partied with at DC10 and had one of the best nights ever) the property itself is spotless, white, and immaculate, every morning we see the staff creating the pool side ambience, no stone is left unturned, it's perfection, the pool is small, but it doesnt need to be any bigger, it has a Miami/cool/boutique vibe, the music starts at midday, then a DJ arrives around 3pm....chilled, cool music, great sets, that set you up for the first cocktails of the day.....the food is spot on, that goes for breakfast as well as lunch/dinner.
We love the pool view rooms, the rooms are small but perfectly formed, do not expect a big vacous room, but ask for a room with a balcony, perfect for a quick drink before heading out.

Anything you require you can get here, the reception are 24/7, always dressed immaculatly, and always ready with a smile, you want a bed at blue marlin, they will fix, you need a taxi, you wait 5mins. Don't stay at Ushuaia, Don't stay at the Gran, stay here and really get a feel for the island, this is old school Ibiza, this is how Ibiza should be.....chat to other guests, get involved...oh and a quick mention to the club in the hotel, it stops when the last resident leaves (normally around 7am so you can afterparty from wherever you have been) and the roof terrace is gorgeous for sundowners. When you get behind those big white gates the party really starts.....even though the island does have a high volume of chavs you would never know it staying at Es Vive, you can go directly to the cool places without having to set your eyes on the Jeremy Kyle rejects....honestly stay here, you will not regret it, one thing to note, this is not a place to go to chill out, this is a party haven, for the discerning party goer.....see you next year...Natalie x

Room Tip: if you do want a little piece 3rd floor
