Talamanca has always been my favorite area to stay in Ibiza, preferably by the beach. Simbad hotel was my choice this time. Great location, smacked by the beach, 15 minutes away from the airport, 15 minutes to Playa D'en Bossa, 10 minutes by water taxi to Dalt Villa, and 5 minutes to Club Pacha. Convenient hotel for party goers and comfortable place for post party recovery. The reception area looked beautiful and modern, so were the restaurant, bar and other communal areas, offered stunning view of Talamanca bay. Spa was rather small but decent. Talking about efficiency, the hotel staff delivered it well. Check-in went pretty fast. Due to high occupancy, I had the room that facing the street, which was not so great. I'm sure the sea view room has better view. In the contrary of all communal areas, the room looked quite tired and dated. Spacious though, and has balcony. The bed was little rocky, dusty with hard mattress (but I guess that's a standard in Ibiza's hotels). Although the room was old, funny enough that the bathroom looked relatively new and spotless. Equipped with bath, toilet, bidet, big sink and various toiletries which was replenished everyday. Towel (new and fluffy) changed daily. The plus points about this hotel were the beautiful view and location. You could hardly get a sea front's accommodation for good value for your money these days. Despite the beach in front of the property wasn't ideal for swimming (too many small boats anchored in), it still nice to wake up with a sea view every morning. You could always walk 2 minutes further and beautiful Talamanca beach will be all yours. The hotel has also decent swimming pool across the small pathway. It has enough loungers and parasols for everyone. Breakfast offered nice selection (egg station, warm meal, fresh squeeze orange juice, cold cuts and all) for the price of 11.50 euro. Quite reasonable. They also offered buffet dinner every evening. Meal wasn't top star quality but it's pretty adequate considering the price you pay under 20 euro. You could always stroll along the bay and visit various restaurants and tapas places. The less attractive about this property was the staff. Hospitality and politeness clearly weren't hotel's strong points. Efficiency didn't have to come with rudeness. I found them mostly blatantly rude and dismissive, from the receptionist all the way to the waitress and cleaners. As if they did the job because they had no choice. Once the job done they wanted to run away. After all, it certainly isn't a 4 or even 3 stars hotel, but it could really be a gem with its stunning location, the view and spaciousness. Investing in the rooms renovation and training their staff properly will bring this property into better level of comfort and may even be a first choice for travelers.

Last minute decision to visit Ibiza and search for hotel got us the Simbad at 570€ seven nights bed only street side.
Lovely bar/restaurant/ reception and public areas. Perfect location on the beach. Rooms a bit tired, old fashioned showers with curtains. But clean and comfortable with a balcony plus chairs and table. Staff charming. Service good. We took breakfast on two days at 11€ each. Excellent and extensive breakfast if you are a big eater. I would rate it at 3.5 stars if possible but jumped it to 4 due to staff, cleanliness, public rooms and generally relaxed attitude. I hope the upgrade of the public rooms is just the beginning and they move up to the bedrooms.

I have been coming to Ibiza for closing parties for 14 years and the last 4 or 5 years have stayed at the Hotel Simbad. It is a great value for the money. Rooms are large and very clean. Minibar with soft drinks is complimentary. Pool is large and overlooks the Meditarrean Sea. Several excellent restaurants close by and Ibiza Town only a 12 Euro taxi ride. Walking distance to Pacha for late night partying but hotel is very oriented toward families and seniors. Quite popular with German package tours. Also has wifi throughout which is not that common in Ibiza.

Room tip: Sea view are the best.

stayed there for a couple of days during closings. not a hotel for the young partypeoples, but perfect for the more experienced partypeoples, those who still love to go out (doesn't matter how long..) but also appreciate the opportunity to have a place to recharge :)
nice&clean rooms, stunning view over the harbour with dalt vila in perfect position. by car 5min to the city and also to destino. 10-15min to playa d'en bossa. beautiful little beach infront and there's also a nice pool. highly recomended place to stay.
the only small complain i have is, it seems that the cleaning team didn't cared if you had the red sign 'do not disturb' at the door. i know it's not an easy job but privacy needs to be respected.
as i said, it's only a small complain, overall i'm pretty sure our group found a new place to check-in regularly. at least for as long as nobody owns a house there :)

Room tip: room with seaview is a must

The hotel is just 10-15 mins away from the airport. It's got amazing beach view and a decent swimming pool. The food was good enough. The only problem was that the rooms were bit old fashioned and had the water smell. I guess that can be ignored. Nice place to live and all the major attraction are not too far off! Would prefer staying if I'm coming back!
