“Another great week in this resort”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

Es Canna Playa apartments are basic, but great value as they are very clean and have really helpful and cheerful staff. We opted for a studio-but would go for 1 bed next time for a bit more room; and would request a lower floor as there is no lift.

There are plenty good quality eateries and a variety of nice cafe bars to choose from all within easy reach (10% discount card was a great bonus when eating or drinking or shopping within the complex). Our apartment had sun all day thanks to the 'L' shaped balcony offering great views over the beach and water........some amazing sunsets and sunrises too!

stayed in Es Cana on many occassion's ...These Apartments are clean and basic but are worth the money. there is no lift so if you have mobility issues maybe not the apartments for you.
however easy accessible and right on the beach. There is a shop down stairs but up the road is cheaper for essentials and water. We were on the first floor and had a great balcony but can be a bit slippery but other than that i can reccommend these to anyone staying in this area.

Room Tip: ask for first floor if you dont like walking upstairs with small children but you can leave buggies...

Before arriving we had communicated with the apartments via email to request a room, they were helpful and delivered us a great room.
These apartments are in a great location on the sea front in Es Canar and the main high street. The apartments are a good size, clean and with great views.

Room Tip: If you are booking a 1 bed apartment then request top floor for a great view and massive balcony

We arrived at the apartments at 1am and collected the key from the bar underneath. We hadn't booked direct with the apartments but we were still given a fantastic sea view in apartment 204. The resort is quite small, we stayed for 10 nights and by the end of it we were struggling to find new places to eat out of a night. As mentioned on previous reviews you are given a 10% discount card to use in the shop underneath and also for 3 restaurants on the beach, although they do all serve the same menu, staff we found to be quite abrupt so tended not to bother with them very much. The Mar Vent across the street has better service and a better menu.

The pool area was adequate for the amount of apartments, it looks smaller on the photos than it actually is. It wasn't dirty at all although people coming in off the beach and jumping straight into the pool instead of using the shower did cause a build up of sand around the bottom edges of the pool which seemed to be there for almost a week. Also we noticed that the chemicals used for cleaning the pool are just kept on the side where anyone could have access to them.

The heat was a major problem for us, we hired a fan at 17 euros and that was left on constantly as well as the patio doors being open all day and all through the night. The next door neighbour had actually taken his bed onto the veranda and was sleeping on that of a night time. Air con was available at 100 euros for the week but really who is going to pay that amount???? Out of the five of us staying in the apartment I don't think any of us had a decent nights sleep throughout the whole stay. As far as noise was concerned, we didn't hear any and even those overlooking Charlies bar and the other bars, music was turned right down by midnight....we wouldn't have minded had we been given a view over the bars or over the car park as it wasn't anywhere near as bad as some of the reviews say on here. I stood in the bus queue in the car park and there was no way I could have seen into any of the apartments and people really aren't bothered about watching you sitting on your balcony.

All in all we had a fantastic holiday at these great value for money apartments, no other hotels or apartments offer such a great location literally footsteps from the beach.

Room Tip: Room 204 is great with a lovely big balcony and fantastic sea view.

We booked the Studio room and were very surprised when we arrived as the word 'Studio' usually means a tiny little room with a bed, a kitchen and a toilet just off.. It was huge! Lets say a fancier word would be 'a spacious open-planned Apartment' :) We were in Room 305 and I emailed to request a sea-view which was met with delight. Balcony big enough for 2 people. Christina who worked in the Clothes shop below (this is where you pick up your keys) was the nicest person we could have met. She told us all the places to go (El Bigote, which I reviewed is a must) and all the little beaches and towns that you would'nt normally know about as they are not advertised freely - This is a good thing!
I would love to come back next year with our daughter although the only thing putting us off is no Air Conditioning - A MUST in August.. You could rent the units but an extra EUR100 per week I thought was a bit steep but I suppose if you have young kids it would be worth it. Upgrade your rooms with Air Con and charge a little extra per week, sorted!
Thanks for a lovely stay...

Room Tip: Room 305, a great room for a couple, sea view and lovely little balcony.. Rent an A/C unit

Just back from an 11 day stay. Apartments were very clean and although basic,fine. Was hoping for sea view but alas got carpark view which was actually great for people watching. The two ladies downstairs in the shop next door were lovely and helpful. Apartments had 2 beds and a sofa n extra bed in lounge. Kitchen had two hotplates,a microwave and a full size fridge. Bathroom had a brilliant powerful shower.maids came every other day and were always lovely and polite. The only niggles about the room were that they get very hot with just having ceiling fans so i suggest you rent a standing fan and the other thing there were no bowl/ dishes just plates but these are minor niggles. As we faced the car park/ bus top you did get noise but this only becomes a problem when the disco buses arrive full of screaming teenagers in the early hours every morning. Because they make so much noise we couldn't leave balcony doors open through the night so it was very hot. You get a card that gives you 10% off the restaurant underneath and also off souvenirs from the shop below,this was a nice touch. The pool is a few steps away and you have to use your door card to get in, its nice and clean but needs new sun beds as quite a few are broken .Es Cana is definitely a family resort throughout the day and evening but in the early hours the drunk revellers come out of the shadows. The apartments gave free wifi which was great but the signal was very intermittent in the rooms so my kids spent a lot of time in the reception area where it was fine. The old reception is not manned so after the ladies close the shop at 10.30 pm i don't think there is anyone about to sort any issues you might have. I have been to Es Cana 5 times now and i would definitely stay in these apartments again if i got a sea view. Id asked for top floor which i got but i did struggle with three flights of stairs so would ask for lower floor if i returned.Escana isn't the most prettiest resort but it has everything you will need for a lovely family holiday. Overall i would recommend these apartments .

I have just come back with my family from these apartments two days ago, and I have NO complaints in relation to them. The apartments were spacious, exceptionally clean, well equipped and a joy to stay in.
We had a one bedroom apartment between the four of us, and found the apartment catered to all of our needs. I would advise to buy one of the apartments fans though. It is $17 euros for the week, and well worth the money.
Our view was over the bus and taxi area, and it is really quite alright. There is no 'horrific view' like some of these other reviews stated. You need to book with the es canar playa apartments directly (www.parot.es) , if you require a sea view, which we didn't do, and therefore did not get sea view, but like I said, this was not an issue!
The exclusive pool is beautiful, calm and very clean. Maybe small, but only for a handful of people, as our apartments only had 29 rooms.
The location of these apartments are fantastic, as not only are you a few steps away from the beach, you are in a central location of the resort itself.
In terms of Es Cana, it is a mix between the resort of Santa Eulalia and Cala Llonga. There are some very nice shops, bars and restaurants, and even a small fair for the younger children (which may not be to everyone's liking, but its not rowdy or 'rough').
It is a large tourist resort, and it attracts mainly families, young couples and surprisingly young people itself. This is the only slight issue, the young groups of teenagers did mean a couple of sleepless nights, if you have your doors open, courtesy of why fans are needed. There are no apparent nightclubs though, so I am at loss as to why they were in the resort.
I highly recommend the train road trips (Ibiza express) that are provided in Es Canar, near our apartments, they are pricey if there a number of you, but seeing the beautiful beaches such as Es Figueral, Cala Llenya and Cala Boix (10.30 in the morning trip) is well worth it. A well spent 3 hour journey. It is also good, as it gives you scope for thinking about future holiday destinations.
The beach of Es Canar is lovely, and very sweet, can get busy, but a 'nice' busy.
Restaurants I would recommend include the Jacaranda Lounge, the restaurant below the apartments called Restaurant Es Canar (Do not be fooled by the silver bar and flat screen tvs, the food is very Spanish and totally fantastic with great service, the drinks prices are FANTASTIC in comparison to other places in the area) and the Mandarin Chinese restaurant.
We have been to Ibiza 3 times before, and can never recommend highly enough going to the beautiful Eivissa (Ibiza Town) - Beautiful stunning place, fabulous restaurants and shops steeped in history, surrounded by cultured stunning people. Costs around $26 each way from Es Canar.
We also visited the beautiful inland village of Sant Carlos. Stunning restaurants and shops (small selection - but has some lovely vintage boutiques), however, had slight difficultly getting a taxi back.
Santa Eulalia is always a nice night out, I would recommend La Rambla for their selection of Vegetarian and Gluten Free food.
Finally, we went to the Hippy Market in Es Canar, which we had failed to do before due to not staying in this resort. Definitely worth a visit. Beautiful people and lovely items affordably priced. Levi shorts was my bargain - $12 as opposed to paying £30/40 min. here.
A truly fantastic holiday.
