“Already booked again for 2015!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This was my 4th stay in 4 years and yet again had a great Time!

As I've reviewed before the food staff and cleanliness are in my opinion 100%! Pleased too see Mandy still behind the bar. The only point which i can mark them down on if i have too was there was a local street carnival on a few of the days we were staying which did mean that there wasn't entertainment on in the evening but hardly a big deal. The hotel now offers free wifi, the air conditioning has now been fitted but could with being a few degrees cooler to feel the benefit.
Have booked to go again next august and cant wait!

Dear Guest,
Thanks for your feedback.
The 10th of July is the big festivities of Es Canar and we would like to encourage our guests to enjoy it. There is a street party that takes place 2 days before and on the 10th with music and fireworks. On the 10th we have our show earlier to allow our guests to enjoy the athmosphere of the village and have plenty of time to look for a place where to enjoy the party.
For the same reason, during the street party, we do a lot of activities during the day for guests enjoyment.
We take the opportunity to remind all our guests that to have a good temperature in the room all the doors must be closed all the time, if not, automatically it will stop working (the temperature must be between 21ºC and 25ºC).
Thank you very much and see you next year!

We have just returned from a very enjoyable 1 week stay at the Anfora Playa. The rooms are cleaned every day and the whole hotel is kept very clean.
The rear pool does not open until 10 o clock which is great and prevents people reserving sunbeds. One negative is the pool bar, on many occasions we were left waiting as the staff had gone off to get food that had been ordered.
The first part of the week was very relaxing but come the Thursday when the schools broke up the whole dynamics of the Hotel changed, busier noisier and the Restaurant struggling to accomodate everyone.
We had an end room which was very noisy with the evening entertainment keeping you awake until midnight. The rear view rooms are quieter.
Overall though a very enjoyable 1st time visit to Ibiza.

Room Tip: Choose a rear view room

Dear Guest,
Thanks for taking time giving us your feedback.
We take the opportunity to clarify that our kitchen for health and safety reasons is located in the main building. We apologise if at some point we take a little longer in serving meals.
On the other hand, our hotel is a family hotel. Here come people of all ages but most of our guests are families, specially during the school holidays. July and August are our busiest time, we have entertainment until midnight, we always control the sound limits and if anyone comes to reception with any requirements we try and accomplish them. We're very happy to do our best.
We want to thank you for your comments and we hope to see you soon!

Spent 10 enjoyable days at a lovely family hotel that is certainly better than its official 2* rating. New air con in rooms was great.

Excellent location, just minutes away from most things in the resort and 10 min walking distance from the Hippy Market held every weds.

I emailed hotel before our visit and requested two rooms overlooking rear pool, nice to arrive and be given the rooms we requested.

Plenty of sunbeds, rear pool doesn't open until 10 which prevents people from claiming sunbeds too early. Rear pool closes at 7pm and on one day there was a minor incident about people not leaving on time, perhaps a clock by the bar at the rear pool might stop this happening in future.

Cleaners do a great job, hotel is sparkling, rooms cleaned every day apart from Tues and the majority of the receptionists, bar staff and waiting staff do a fantastic job in a friendly manner.

The food is of very good quality, both Spanish and British inspired food is provided by the team of Spanish chefs, very good selection for size of hotel. On a couple of the nights we had roast beef and lamb dinners and I think you would struggle to get better roast dinners in the UK.

The day time entertainment was low key, both adults and children got involved with things such as shooting and archery. The evening entertainment was a bit hit or miss, a couple of the professional acts were good (singer Danny Murphy and a couple who sang acoustic songs, sorry can't remember their names). Perhaps a few more professional acts would raise the level of evening entertainment.

Overall an excellent family holiday booked with Thomson for about £50 per person per night for half board during the school holidays - excellent value!

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking rear pool are best, we had 331 and 332.

I have been to many 3 star , 4 star and even 5 star hotels that do not match up to the standards in this hotel. We have just got back from a week there in July and had a lovely room. The place is so clean and the food was so good. My daughter is so fussy about food and we normally have to eat out instead of in the hotel which can be an added cost. Not this time as the food was so plentiful and hot! Why is it only 2star? Is it cos there is no tv or hairdryer in the room! Who cares, who wants to watch tv and with the heat your hair drys instantly. Too much to do with the good entertainment. I advise people not to go by the star system and go by word of mouth from people have been and then you will not be pleasantly suprised as we were!

Room Tip: We should have been in a twin room, but had a family room with 4 beds, which was good for us as it w...

Dear Guest,
Hotel Anfora Playa is very clear in all on-line descriptions of what you can find in the hotel and the rooms.
Recent years we have developed a wide range of day and night entertainment, special kids club, air conditioning in the rooms, early breakfast for early departures... and many guests suggestions in the questionnaires. TV and fridge have not been priorities, that's why we concentrate in other requests. But we are happy to include these points this year as your guest request. We thank you for this and thank you very much for your lovely comments.
See you soon!

We have just arrived back from this hotel and I must say we were really impressed. As a party of 5 we had booked interconnecting rooms which suited our needs perfectly. The rooms are basic but clean with plenty of plug sockets and drawers/wardrobes for clothes. Air con was available at 2 euros a day which was worth every penny as it was very hot during our stay. Maids cleaned every day except Tuesday and towels were changed every day.The reception staff were always pleasant and helpful, although we found the bar staff a bit hit and miss, sometimes having to wait to be served while they chatted to other staff. The restaurant was nice, not too big although during our second week it seemed to get busier with queues for tables and food by 7.30. The food is this hotel was by far the best we have ever had in a hotel abroad. Almost every night the chef was carving joints of pork, beef, lamb or turkey. There was a huge choice of salads, cooked meat, fish and fruit,aswell as plenty of rice, pasta potatoes and veg. This hotel is in a lovely quiet location just 2 minutes walk from bars and shops and only 5 minutes from the beach, although the hotel panorama across the road could be noisy at times. I would recommend this hotel for families and couples as Es Cana is a lovely resort. We would be happy to return.
