We arrived at the San Miguel Park Hotel for our 5 night stay and were surprised how small the complex was. We stayed in the San Miguel Park part of the complex but did have a wander to the Esmerelda Mar complex which had its own pool up high overlooking San Miguel so had beautiful views. There was a short walk to the restaurant/bar if you were staying in the Esmerelda Mar which would be fine for people without walking disabilities or pushchairs.
ROOM: We were shown to our room (222) on the first floor overlooking the pool. We were pleased to have been upgraded to an apartment after booking a studio and found the room to be fine if a bit dated although most importantly it was clean though and bearing in mind the amount of time we would be spending in there we were happy with it. It had a small kitchen area which comprised of an electric hob, fridge and microwave. Beds were a bit hard but as mentioned, for 5 days it wasn't much of a problem. We were disappointed that there was no kettle or toaster but it didn't really matter too much as we were all inclusive but having a toddler (22 months) with us, a toaster would have been useful for snacks while in the room. 3/5
FOOD: The restaurant itself is very small and we were pretty surprised at first how everyone staying would fit in but it did work out quite nicely as you can sit outside so there was always plenty of room and with the meals spanning a couple of hours, it was fine. We found the food quite pleasant, although a limited choice there was always something you could find to eat. If you like fish you will be happy as there was a lot of it. We didn't however!! There was a standard salad bar which didn't really change at all but was always fresh and tasty. We expected that there might be themed nights but other than a Spanish Night with paella there were no other themes and the food was a mixture of fish, pasta, chips, pizza, etc but we did find a lack of vegetables. Our toddler (22 months) ate quite well and there were a nice selection of desserts. Breakfast consisted of mostly continental but did have beans, bacon scrambled eggs, (sometimes sausages) and boiled eggs too. 4/5
BAR/POOL: The pool area was quite small but managed to get sunbeds and pretty easily as they are all stacked up so you help yourself and take them to wherever you want. The atmosphere around the pool was quiet and relaxing. The bar was next to the restaurant and again, people sat outside at the pool area for the evening's entertainment. 3/5
BEACH: The beach is about a 5 minute walk away and is beautiful. Please also note that you can obtain vouchers from reception to get 20% off drinks at the beach bar (in the middle directly overlooking the beach) and free umbrella hire. It is usually 13EUROS for 2 sunbeds an an umbrella but using a voucher, you will pay 9EUROS. The beach was always busy but not crowded. 5/5
ENTERTAINMENT: Was a little disappointing as they only had outside entertainment 3 times while we were there with the other nights just music or bingo! They had a guitarist one night who was very good, a magician who again was very good and a parrot show. We found the children's entertainment awful really. They kept telling us there was going to be a disco but would just play over complicated games with the children that took a long time to set up, leaving our toddler a bit bored. We also found it dangerous that the entertainment was around the pool as we couldn't take our eyes off our son for a second in case he ran and slipped into the pool. The entertainment would probably be suited towards 4 upwards (there was also a kids club too for such ages). From what we heard/saw of other hotels nearby the entertainment did look a lot better for children. 2/5
RESORT: The resort of San Miguel is lovely and the beach is beautiful. A perfect place for a quiet relaxing holiday. There are a few restaurants and a couple of bars but it is the hotels that mainly have the entertainment and you could hear loud music and entertainment coming from the hotels early evening. 5/5
BUSES: Run to Ibiza town, Santa Eulalia from the bus stop just a 100 yards down the road and Es Cana. We went to Ibiza town which was lovely, but very hot!! buses run at 9.30am and 11am to Ibiza town and return at 1.30pm or 5pm although ours was late! (lots of roadworks on the main route at the moment though).
In summary, we had a lovely relaxing holiday in San Miguel and would definitely return but would perhaps try another hotel with more children's entertainment as that was the only thing that was disappointing as we had a toddler with us and there was not much for him to do and again, with the entertainment centring around the pool, we did find it a bit dangerous for young children.
