I recently came back from a week stay at the Hotel San Miguel. All in all I had a good time ideal for relaxing if you are after a quiet holiday. I went all inclusive and after securing a late deal with Thomsons, I cannot complain. All inclusive entiled you to choose from 1 of the 3 hotels within the bay although you have to book if you wish to eat in another restaurant. I recommend to book the chinese and the food in our restaurant was fantastic! The hotel cater for everyone and couldn't believe the amount of choice it offered it was unbelievable!! How anyone can complain about the food is beyond me. Drinks are on tap and there is a snack bar central that serves fast food and sandwiches, again very good.
The staff at the hotel were very friendly and hard working morning til night. The thomson reps were very approachable and helpful. I do recommend a safe as our wallet was stolen from room we think by the maid but there was nothing more we could do apart from cancel credit cards.
I would recommend the Aguamar water park, a good break from the resort. We bought this towards the end of the week with Ibiza excursions 200m from the hotel. It was only a few euros dearer but Thomson excursions only run on particular days. For 32 euros we had a great day out although food is expensive and you have to pay for a locker and sunbeds.
As it was peak season, it was very busy around our hotel pool although you can choose from either of the 3 pools in the resort. We had to be up early to get beds and it can be quite noisy with the kids!
We spent 1 day on the beach but was disgusted with the 4.50 euro charge for a bed! and extra if you want an umbrella. My advice is to buy a lilo. The bay itself is a lovely scene but the sea is quite stoney and hurts to get in and out so we stayed by the pool for the rest of the holiday.
The rooms were clean and basic with a very good sized balcony. The whole resort is a sun trap! :-) The staff continuously cleaned up but there were a few flies.
The entertainment at night was very good. ZORRO the main entertainer is fantastic soooo funny!! I would extremely recommend this hotel for families, kids had a wonderful time.
Overall the holiday was good. If you are looking for a family holiday with young children then here is a must. As a young couple we were pleased with this holiday if you are after somewhere quiet and relaxing. The resort itself is very isolated so if you are after something more lively I wouldn't recommend San Miguel.
