Address: Santa Eulalia del Rio
Santa Eulalia / Ibiza „
We went to the Don Carlos hotel last June.
The hotel is slightly out of the way but is only a short walk down the road and over a bridge from the main sea front strip of Santa Eulalia.
The hotel has a large reception area with tables and sofas for you to sit on, there are 2 lifts and a stair case to go to your rooms, to the right is the bar where the entertainment is held out of season and then it goes onto the outside stage in peak season.
There are a few computers in the lobby that if you go on they give you information about places to go on the island and some print off coupons for money off.
The rooms are spacious, clean and beds are comfortable, the rooms walls are quite thin though so if you have noisy neighbours then I'm afraid you will hear them!!!
The pool is clean but quite small, there are plenty of loungers and umbrellas around the pool but if you want an ideal spot then you need to get up early! There is a seperate shallow childrens pool next to the main one.
There is a pool side bar which also does snacks like pizza, toasties etc which they will bring to your sun lounger for you when cooked!
There is a snack bar just down a few steps on the left of the pool which opens at lunch time which has a larger menu but the waitress english is not the best and we ended up with different meals to what we ordered a few times!!!
There are a few gates which go down to the beach, its not your typical white sandy beach but its nice for a change, there is a big concrete space on the way down and when we looked at a brochure for the hotel in reception there use to be a building there which looked like it was a bar so why they have took it down I don't know because it would have been ideal to not have to climb all the steps back up to the hotel for a drink.
We went half board so the we had our breakfast and main meal included.
The main restaurant entrance is next to the indoor bar, there was always plenty of tables and there is some tables on an outside balcony to sit on which we use to enjoy sitting out for breakfast.
The breakfast was good, they had a variety of hot and cold breakfasts and the orange juice was proper orange juice not the normal watered down squash you normally get abroad! They also had tea and coffee.
The dinner was amazing! There was such a variety and you never had the same thing day after day! There was a varirty of meats, vegetables, loads of salads and my favourite was the fresh fruit they had, a couple of times they had some fresh strawberries but if you didn't get them quick then they would run out! They had a good selection for desserts which is not ideal if you are on a diet! (but who sticks to their diets on holiday)
The entertainment was the downside it was quite poor, they had childrens entertainment earlier on in the evening which was ok but the adult entertainment was shocking, we use to walk into Santa Eulalia on an evening and it was much better!
The bottles of wine are very reasonable at the bar, you can get a decent bottle of rose from £5 - £10, but if you order a lager and lime then they charge you more for the lime then the lager!!!!!! There is also a shop just over the road from the hotel that sells alcohol so if you wanted it for your room then would probably best to go there, the shop also sells a selection of mouth watering cakes!!!!
Myself and my partner are in our 20's so we wanted to go to the nightspots, which a taxi to San Antonio was about 30euros and on the way back they had never heard of the hotel so they had to radio in the find out where it was!
It's not ideally located if you want to experience the nightlife but if you are just after a relaxing holiday then this is an ideal hotel and location.
