I have just returned from a wonderful week in Ibiza and I must admit I aproached the departure lounge with trepidation. The reason being I have had many unpleasant departure lounge experiences and I expected Ibiza to be no different. However I was pleasantly surprised, it was clean spacious, and plenty of seating and toilet facilities, I was impressed.
The children decided they wanted a drink of Dr. Pepper so off I trekked and found some,they were not priced and I just asked for two Dr. Peppers and as it was three in the morning I didnt question the price of 1200 pesatas too closely, after all I was half asleep! When I handed over the drinks my son asked how much it cost and it was then that it hit me ,1200 pesatas was nearly six pounds! for two drinks!
I went back to the kiosk to check the price and it was indeed 600 pesatas each, what a rip off!
So be warned do not buy anything from the kiosks iunless you ask the price first!
On a positive note the fast food outlet at the far end of the lounge serves excellent food and drinks at a very reasonable price although you would expect to pay more.
