“Wonderful holiday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2013

This is our first time to Ibiza, and we will be going back. The Apartments Del Rey were great, if you are expecting 2 star. They were clean, and the staff were really friendly. The towels etc were changed every other day. There are a lot of stairs, but that was okay.
The kitchenette consisted of a burner, sink, and fridge. There was a kettle and a toaster. There was not a lot of plates etc though.
The pool is the best pool of the area. The views are wonderful and the bar is good. It is significantly better than we were expecting, and in June, it didn't get too busy.
The walk to the beach took 2 minutes across the road, and there are a few small grocery stores 5 minutes away.
We had room 36 B2 and the view from the balcony was stunning over the bay.
The only down side is you could hear the all inclusive hotel's entertainment though from across the bay, but this ended fairly early.

Room Tip: Being high up at the front gives you great views of the bay, but you can hear the entertainment from...

Stayed in the Del Rey beginning of June very nice place.
Apartment slightly dated, there was no microwave and although we had a gorgeous view of the sea we didn't get much sun on the balcony so we didn't spend much time on there.
Apartment was very clean, towels changed regularly and beds were changed once.
All the staff were very helpful and friendly.
The beaches in Portinatx are absolutely gorgeous crystal clear waters and very clean, although we spent most of our time around the pool areas as it was absolutely gorgeous!! Lovely little kids pool and a gorgeous view.

Only 1 downfall to Portinatx did not rate the bus timetable at all, there were two buses from Portinatx 1 to Ibiza Town and the other to Santa Eulalia but they only run about 2-3 times a day, so unless you have a car you pretty much will stay in resort, other than that would highly recommend.

Room Tip: We were on 4a so had use of the lift only had 1flight to climb but some people did say they had lots...

Just returned from 8 days at the Del Rey, Portinatx. Booked with some tripidation but with no need. We arrived at 2a.m. & were met by a lovely lady. Room spacious with large double bed & masses of cupboard space. Kitchen contained a good 2 ring hob, fridge, toaster, kettle & iron. A little short on pans & utensils but we managed ok. This is a large complex & a bit of a warren to find your way at first. There is a lift to 4th floor but there are a lot of steps still if you are on higher floors. Room cleaned & linen changed every other day. Apartments very close to a good beach. Did not use pool but it looked very nice. Portinaxt is a reasonably quiet resort, we only had a problem one night with late revellers. Plenty going on in evenings if required though. We had a hire car & so were able to travel around north of island, there are aqua buses & a road train that will get you around, albeit slowly, if you have no transport.

Room Tip: Would advice asking for a room away from road & cafe as can be noisy in the evening.

Alejandro is best bar keeper we've ever had, he is great with the kids (watch their change disappear before their very eyes), great with the drinks, always smiling and was a definite bonus to our stay-THANK YOU!

The pool is brilliant, clean and bigger than the others around so that guests from the (reportedly small and overcrowded) nearby hotels came to use it.

We were there in half term (end May- beg Jun 2013) and it was pleasantly "empty" -enough people to make friends with and chat, enough "mates" for the kids, -but few enough to be able choose where to sit, lie, hang around.... or read a book.

two pool tables. no karaoke (good). bars with elvis impersonator etc just a 2min walk away.

Only drawback as far as I was concerned: constant old English pop and telly.... (everywhere) So not a very "Spanish" feel to the resort. But apparently most guests WANT the TV... easy enough to escape by sitting on the other side of the pool.
Free sunbeds, plenty of, and showers.

Food at the pool bar good value, try the chicken in secret recipe sauce... beer, wine, coke, kids' cocktails all at a reasonable 2E.

The apartment was spacious, (block 3A, well above all the action below and with fabulous views), clean, and we got clean towels every other day. One bedroom was en suite with bidet and bath, the other, curtained off "bedroom" is not ideal but no problem with a bit of tolerance. another bathroom with shower, all in all, great value.

Fab balcony although the lights go off automatically at 00:15. Bit early/inconvenient for mums with kids asleep wanting a bit of reading-with-a-beer out there....

Cooking facilities very sufficient, gas cooker, pots&pans, plates etc, tea towels, but BRING A SPONGE and SOME WASHING UP LIQUID!

Supermarkets in Portinatx OK, but if you have the chance shop in one of the big ones (Eroski, Alcampo, Ole, Mercadona in IBIZA town) and stack the fridge for the week as fruit and veg are not too good and of course more expensive.

restaurants OK but not exactly authentic, lots of chips with everything. full english breakfast but we had to ask for "media tostada con tomate" as it wasn;t even written on the menu.

Try mini golf at £2.50 pp with no time limit at a nice restaurant overlooking the bay newar where the GLASS BOTTOM BOAT is....

I would recommend the apartments to anyone with kids, young and old couples, singles, only NOT to wild hen/stag parties as there is a definite friendly family feel.

We had a great, relaxed time and WILL BE BACK!!

Room Tip: block 3A. third floor. climbing the steps is well worth it for the quiet location and the view!

We arrived on the first of May and weren't sure what to expect but all round we had a great holiday. Our appartment was typically Spanish with lots of wood and contained everything that we needed. There was more than enough storage, a king sized bed, huge living room and balcony. The maids came in every other day, cleaned through and changed sheets and towels every time. They were due the day before we left so I was pleasantly surprised to find that bedding and towels had still been changed! The receptionist and manager were most helpful. It was really cold at night so we asked for an extra blanket but instead the manager said we could have the heating on (no extra charge!) which was great as we were the first guests of the season and the rooms were quite cold. We also had a problem with the kettle and this was changed immediately. The pool area has beautiful views over the bay and we were the only guests using the pool for the first 3 days. The only downside was the cost of the safety deposit boxes. I had expected to pay 10-15 Euros per week but they were 3.50 per day! We were limited to a few restaurants because some didn't open until the second week. We ate most nights at S'Arenal while watching the sun go down and spent most of our evenings in Vincent's bar, lovely atmosphere, very friendly staff and Tommy Memphis made our holiday - loved his zany sense of humour! He so obviously enjoys what he does . Would definitely go back to Portinax and the Del Rey - can't understand why it's only a 2* - great value for money. If you are worried about all of the steps ask for a 1st floor appartment, we din't find it too bad.

Room Tip: Ask for a bay view and watch the sun go down

When we arrived in the middle of the day our apartment (room 42) was in darkness and there was condensation streaming down the windows. When we went to bed we realised the apartment had not been used for a while and had not been aired and the beds felt damp. It took two days before the beds felt anywhere near dry and comfortable. The apartment we were in is very dated especially the kitchen area, which could do with renewing. Our room overlooked the square and it was very noisy till at least 12.00 at night. English satellite channels comprise 1 general interest channel (mostly car or technology related), 1 cartoon channel and maybe 4 news channels, not very comprehensive!

On the plus side, the balcony was quite spacious and had the sun most of the day, the apartments are near to the beach and amenities, the staff were nice and the rooms were serviced every two days (new towels and a clean round) and the attached restaurant Real is great. The pool area is super.

We stayed at the Del Rey apartments October 2012 (half term). As half term was later this year it went into November and just wanted to warn everyone. That everything in Portinex is closed from the 31st October. Having said that we had a lovely Holiday. After reading some of the reviews, we were a bit sceptical about the accommodation. Although the rooms are dated, they are large, clean and have everything you need. There were 2 adults and 1 child in our party and we had a 1 bedroom apartment on the first floor overlooking the beach. The balcony was sufficient and the views spectacular. As most people have mentioned, the pool and its surrounding areas are fantastic, this also have fantastic views of the bay.

We would love to experience Portinex in the summer as it is a really lovely bay and area and I can imagine with more atmosphere it would be a lovely place to stay.

Room Tip: As we had room 13 on the 1st floor with excellent views of the bay, it was above the entrance so the...
