The hotel i stayed in Ibiza was fantastic to say the least. I stayed in the hotel belle mar in the resort of San Antonio just off the beach of Es pouet the hotel only has two options self catering or half board which isnt a problem but i would definitely go half board seeing as the food was really nice with lots of choice and it is all freshly cooked in front of you. The hotel also has two swimming pools one out door and one indoor in the spa area which also has a mini gym spa area steam room sauna and jacuzzi. This hotel has also got a bar and social area for relaxing and a quiet drink but if your bored of that just next door is another selection of bars and restaurants.I would recommend this hotel for couples and older people as it is bit more up market than those in big groups if you choose this hotel you will thoroughly enjoy your stay good luck .
When you mention Ibiza to most people they probably think of late night revellers dancing and drinking into the night. Perhaps you might also think of lager louts. However, there is another side to Ibiza that is particularly lush and beautiful, it is a lot greener than Majorca.
The hotel is three stars and has a good position above the beautiful secluded bay of Cala Llonga with its small beach and trees up each side of the bay.
The hotel is small with a large room for the bar, snacks and entertainment. The snacks served during the day are very good.
You might want to be careful eating snacks in the day when pool games are being played, I lost my food when a badly aimed shot hit me and knocked all my food over me. My advice, don't eat near the pool when there are games being played.
The room we had did not have a particularly good view, it faced a wall, was a reasonable size with a balcony and was very clean. However, most of the other rooms overlooked the pool and the bay so they should have excellent rooms. If you can I would recommend booking a sea view if possible. Our maid was especially thorough and very friendly.
The food in the hotel is very good. Some people complained but in all I was impressed and had some great and varied meals, most nights there was a chief cutting meat for you, including salmon.
The pool is small but probably just about big enough for the number of guests, if you like pool games then you will be in your element. We took part in the obligatory water volley and water polo, it did get quite competitive.
The staff at the hotel are all very friendly and efficient, especially in the dining room, the deserve a good tip.
One downside of the hotel is the lack of air conditioning, there is none in the rooms, restaurant or downstairs bar. The place to cool down, other than the pool, is the upper bar, and is a nice place the get away from the entertainment that was mostly poor.
However, one act blew our socks off, they are a duo of a guitarist and singer and bass player called 'me and im' and they are top notch, best entertainment I've had at any hotel. If you stay here I hope you get to see them.
There is not much going on in Cala Llonga, this is perhaps why the hotel is all inclusive, there are a few bars and restaurants and that's about it. The hotel is not the Ritz, but is perfectly adequate. Proof that Ibiza is not just about clubbing all night, not that there's anything wrong with that.
The beach is nice and you can get a boat trip to Ibiza Town or lots of other locations around the island.
If you like to explore the island we can recommend Ibiza town and the especially the fort, get ready for a climb though. The views from the top are excellent and you can explore the fort. We got the bus in and it didn't cost very much, the exact cost escapes me.
We went in September for one week and the weather we had was excellent.
On the whole we had a good time in the Sirenis and Ibiza but I doubt we will be back to Ibiza because there is just too that much to see elsewhere. If I had my choice of Balearic Island it would have to be Majorca.
My partner and I have been together for over six years now and we have never had a holiday together. We decided that it was about time to get away from it all and have a nice family holiday. We wanted to go to Ibiza, (My family and I have been to Ibiza lots of times on late deals and they have always been excellent) we wanted to go fully inclusive and we wanted it to be as cheap as possible. So we went to Co-op travel and booked a late deal to Ibiza, we didn’t know what hotel we would be staying in or which part of Ibiza we would be put in so we remained open-minded about what we might get. We flew with Britannia Airways. (Well that’s all I’m going to say about that because I don’t want to start getting all worked up maybe this will be in another opinion) The coach pulled up outside the hotel and I must say I was very pleased. We stayed in Portenox, this is a quiet part of Ibiza. The hotel was called Hotel El Greco. It backed straight out on to the beach and there was a water park across from it. It had a swimming pool, sun terraces a poolside bar a lounge/bar and a T.V room. There were two kids clubs. Snappy gang 4 -7 years. Planet vibe 8 -14 years When your children join up for these clubs they get a free hat, t-shirt and badge. You can leave your children in these clubs for up to 2 hours. (When we went it was 11.30 - 1.30 but these times may change) My children are only 1yrs and 3yrs so I couldn’t leave them although they said my children could join in with the group as long as I stayed with them. There was a mini disco every night. This was so funny, watching all the kids dancing about to music and playing games. (Veil veil hey Bes) There was also family entertainment at night. Steps Tribute - This was one of the best live groups I had ever seen, true talent. Spanish dances - These were good but I’v
e seen it all before. Quiz - good fun I’m not very good though. Magic show - The children really loved this. Stupid cupids - This was a show where couples answer questions about their relationship. (Very entertaining) The entertainment in the day was really good it ranged from table tennis competitions, pool competitions, darts, table football, shooting, bowls, water polo and more. Now for the meals The hotel is great but the meals were ooh lovely. The meals were buffet style and believe me there’s something for everyone. There was rice's, salads, meats chip, potato's they had a pizza part where you could order whatever pizza you wanted and they even had a Chinese selection on three days a week. It was heaven; my partner and I love Chinese food, what a bonus. The restaurant was all air-conditioned so it was always nice and cool. Breakfast 8am - 10am Lunch 12am - 2am Dinner 6pm - 8pm In between these times you could also go into the restaurant and get snacks only from 11am to 12 midnight so don’t stay out to late. The rooms weren’t anything special; they were small but cosy. They are all air-conditioned, so at night you didn’t get too sweaty. It was hard adjusting the temperature on the shower; I seemed to get burnt one minute and froze the next. Each room had a T.V and you got some sky channels on it, we spent most of our time at night watching those stupid Chinese challenge programs. (They were great) We booked fully inclusive so we got all our drinks FREE, being a big larger drinker a spent the entire week drinking larger. My partner and my mum drank loads of spirits and cocktails. The kids got free drinks, free ice creams and lollies so they were happy. You can’t get brand named drinks free like Fosters you have to drink the Spanish brands but they aren't too bad. My dad was pretty p***** off because the bar didn’t sel
l bitter and the larger made him feel a bit bloated but that wouldn’t bother anyone who likes larger and shorts. If you stay at this hotel you also get free entrance into El Greco’s Water Park. The water park it just across the road, it has about 6 flumes and a bar (still free drinks) children and the adults will love this. You also get free bike hire although we didn’t bother with this has our children are a bit young for sight seeing on bikes. We paid £1500 for 6 adults and 2 children that was for everything (insurance, fight meal, pre-booked seats) We would love to go back but after looking at the brochure price, which is £619.00 per adult and £169 per child. We just can’t afford to pay these prices so it’ll probably a late deal for us again. I will leave you by saying if you’ve got kid this is probably the best place you could ever dream of visiting. Outside the hotel the sites were nice but we didn’t really leave the hotel much as everything we wanted was in the hotel.
We went to Ibiza in May for the first time, and stayed in the apartments called Sol Bohia, They were very clean, the owners were very friendly and loved the British, they could not do enough for us. The apartments are in San Antonio it overlooks the beach, and you only have to walk out of the hotel for the little beach, or walk 5 minutes up the road for the main beach. I would definately go back to that hotel it was very nice, the food was nice and the drink was quite cheap. He also makes a mean sangria. It only cost us £190 for a week self catering including flights in May. I would say it was suitable for all types of people and it also has a kitchen and a large bathroom in all the rooms.
