“Pleasant Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2012

This hotel gives a good first impression that lasted throughout our stay. It is clearly a step up from the usual mass hotel and apartments in Ibiza, and is clearly higher standard than the Fiesta Playa d'En Bossa where I have previously stayed. But with a price tag to match.

The room was larger than average (well for european standards), with a large bathroom and balcony with a a partial see view. There was plenty of storage space and a fridge. The only minor complaint was the beds where slightly on the hard side.

A major positive was that the room was serviced all the way up until 5 pm in the evening.

Only had breaksfast once and it was average standard offering.

The pool area was pleasant as was the bar on the beach, but this came at a price of getting hassled by vendors - don't know whether the hotel can do anything about this....

Location was central and a short journey from the airport. Cab Rank opposite, and Bora bora ten minute beach walk away.

All in all I was glad I paid extra to get a nicer hotel, but not quite sure it was the best value for money

Stayed for 3 nights with a group of friends.

Positives:
- Close to the airport and with a number of amenities nearby
- Rooms were clean and quiet
- Nice tapas bar and swimming pool area (but the swimming pool itself was dirty)

Negatives:
- The glass doors at the bathrooms: I have yet to figure out in which scenario this would be a good idea, but make sure you are very close with your room mate if sharing a room in this hotel
- Lacking baseline services that one would expect from a hotel at this price range (e.g. minibar, safes, etc. )
- Espresso: 2 Eur, Capuccino: 3 Eur, either of those with ice: 6 Eur. Seriously? 4 Eur for the ice?
- No luggage tags or similar checks: tired of your current wardrobe? Just pick up a random suitcase from the storage room

Stayed there 3 nights in July 2012. Hotel is overall clean but very tacky. Rooms are definitely overpriced and give the feel of a sleazy roadside motel, that you would rent for a few hours, with pink spotlights and glass screens instead of bathroom doors. Empty minibar, and safe that needs to be rented.

Worst of all though is the extremely unfriendly staff. At check in you are required to make full payment. There is no such thing as room service (they refused to bring the safe key to the room!). Bar pricing is completely random (if you want ice to be added to your coffee, they charge triple the price to cover the "labour" cost!). Only decent part of the hotel is the tapas bar.

Stay away from this hotel and its staff.

Four of us have just returned from a Thursday am to Sunday pm break. Once again the hotel was faultless from the staff on reception, to the cleanliness of the bedrooms all the way through the hotel to the pool. Comfy day beds, sofas and chilled music accompany the gentle sound of the beach bar and the waves on the beach. Enormous variety of food in the buffet style restaurant at breakfast and dinner and it catered very well for vegetarians and the beach bar serves well sized lunch meals by helpful, smiley staff, who remembered us.

The staff on reception also assisted us with photocopying (for no charge). Towel hire with daily change is recommended, as is a trip to the peaceful Spa. Short walk to Bora Bora and Space and a cheap taxi ride to the airport and Ibiza Town. I can't recommend this hotel enough, other than this is our third trip in an year and we will try and squeeze in a fourth.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea facing room or a suite (if available).

The bar here was the perfect place to while away the hours. The view from the terrace bar is stunning. Great staff, good selection of beers, wines and cocktails and great tapas. A civilised respite from the teenage-filled party bars along the main strip.
