We were looking for a quieter resort in Ibiza and Portinatx fitted the bill well with no mega hotels or noisy clubs. The apartments are situated beween the larger and smaller beaches and only a minute or so walk from either, with a wonderful view over the bay.
Our apartment on the second floor was perfectly adequate with simple but comfortable furnishings and air conditioning that worked and a balcony to sit and enjoy the view. It was cleaned and the linen changed every 2 days. As others have said, the two Marias are very helpful and a couple of minor problems were dealt with very quickly. The price of 72 euros per day in September was reasonable and in line with other properties we considered.
Both the beaches have marked off areas for swimming and are very good for leisurely snorkelling with a variety of fish readily on view. A few breadcrumbs or similar will bring shoals of them right to your hand. The main beach has a lifeguard on duty from a lookout tower, increasing the safety factor.
Portinatx has more than a dozen restaurants, including a Chinese. Most of them have a typical, if fairly basic, tourist type menu with a selection of meat, fish, pasta and pizza dishes. Prices and quality were pretty much in line with better than average British pub food - not cheap, but not expensive and generally quite well prepared. We ate at 6 of them and particularly enjoyed the first floor Restaurante S'Arena on the main road, where the seafood was especially good. The restaurant below the apartments is distinguished mainly by its prices which are considerably higher than most of the others for no greater variety or quality.
SInce Ibiza is a small island exploring is easy if you hire a car and that's certainly worth doing.
