This accommodation serves its purpose in some respects - roof over head, reasonable location and its budget price - and for this I want to give it 2 or even 3/5. However the service is appalling and brings to mind Fawlty Towers for its inept customer service which was most evident on check in and check out as detailed. On arrival I was told the credit card machine did not work and that I would have to pay cash. When I stated that I did not have the cash I was told to visit a cash machine. What if I didn’t have money on deposit? The answer is I would be denied my pre booked stay (maybe a blessing in hindsight). There was no empathy on their part. No cash no stay. This should raise alarm bells so make sure you have cash on you or be frog marched to the cash machine across the road before getting your keys. If you don’t have money and intended to pay on credit then you might be in a spot of bother... Turning to my checkout experience. I had asked for a 12 rather than 11am. This was apparently fine. However at 1101 there were very loud bangs on my door. Almost like someone was trying to break in or seriously intimidate. When I opened the door it was a lady banging on my door with a broom saying I had to leave. I explained I had a 12 checkout but this fell on deaf ears and it was clear I needed to gather my stuff immediately and get out. The tactics were brutal with banging continuing every few minutes like a petulant child and the water turned off (without warning) so I couldn’t so much as brush my teeth let alone shower. They said it was the whole street without water but my friends were staying further nights and confirmed it wasn’t the case at that time. As I write this I’m actually getting angry (but also laughing) at the treatment as have never experienced anything similar and for that I’m actually going to give it a 1 Star and hope people visit this hotel with their eyes open. It does seem that many people have had an ok experience but you’ll notice the poor reviews all centre around interaction with the staff or being on the ground floor, therefore with prior warning you might be able to navigate these pit falls. Good luck should you stay here.

We stayed here at the start of July and found it to be perfect for us. We were in room 111, which didn't had a balcony and we were facing other people's rooms but that didn't put us off. We stayed for 4 nights , the room was spacious, clean and had air con and a tv. We had a cooking area and fridge and ha no issues with noise. Obviously a few voices when people were coming and going but we were perfectly happy with our room and the location of the hotel. All staff were polite and didn't trouble us. We would come here again, there's plenty of places to eat and drink and there's a shop just across the way, with the beach a stone's throw away, right near to the sunset strip.

Nice and helpful staff in reception. The room was nothing special, but in the end was okay for what we needed as we were most of the time outdoors. Price more or less economic for what you find in the expensive Ibiza.

We came to Ibiza for our good friends wedding and our experience was dampened by our stay here. From the moment we entered it was the worst service we have ever received from a hotel. In particular two people who really shouldn't work in the service sector were Sarah and George. Both of them worked at reception. George always did the evening shifts and Sarah the mornings. We entered our room very late and all we wanted to do was go to bed, as we got in we noticed there were some blood marks on the sheets and pillow. We informed the desk promptly and were told all cleaners had gone so had to wait till tomorrow for the cleaners to come. We had to leave fairly promptly for the wedding and reminded reception of our bedroom situation. To say that I was livid when we returned to find the bedroom still dirty and few things moved around to look as if it had been cleaned and to still see our beds made with the blood sheets was an understatement. I have never wanted to leave a hotel so quickly and it really ruined our experience on what is a lovely island. Sarah is very rude, unhelpful and should not be working there. She reluctantly gave the hairdryer to my husband on one occasion and demanded 20euros as a deposit. The polices of this hotel need to be reviewed if you want people to come back. Bedroom was dark, lifeless and resembled a prison. Also pool looked very dirty. THINK BEFORE YOU BOOK HERE!!!

very large and clean apartments. Very excellent and friendly staff. Free public parking very close, about 200 meters, possibility to leave the luggage and take a shower before leaving. very recommended, I would recommend it to everyone and if i will go to ibiza for sure i will stay here again. thanks to all the gods.

Firstly, I don't want to completely state this hotel. The check in is was prompt and the room was a reasonable size and clean. It had a safe box and air con at no extra cost. Ok, if you're looking to do some sunbathing, this is the wrong hotel. It is a grotty, dirty, concrete section that gets absolutely no sun. It's the worst pool area I've ever seen from a hotel. The walls are paper thin, and if you are staying on the ground floor there are bars on the window like a prison. This is for safety, however you have to keep the curtains shut otherwise everyone walking past can see in (feels like a dungeon). Do not stay on the ground floor, request to be moved asap. Also bring your own hair dryer, they do not supply one. On our first day we had a walk around as the cleaner wanted to clean. When we returned, we noticed a lot of our makeup had been stolen, as well as some earrings. It was very cleverly done, a few bits from my make up bag, and a few from each of my friends. I'm assuming the cleaners do this often and I'm sure a lot of girls don't notice. We complained to reception who laughed at first, and then said there was nothing they could do. We requested that our room was not cleaned after this, and of course nothing else went missing. I will never stay at this hotel again, and there are far nicer hotels in the area for the same price. Stealing is not acceptable no matter what it is, and being laughed at by staff was not acceptable either. Do yourself a favour and find somewhere nicer!

Stayed here for a short break with my friends last week. We arrived in the evening An was greeted by a lovely lady at reception who showed us our room which was actually right next to reception too think they wanted to keep an eye on us lol. Our room was very spacious an had the basics we needed for a short girls break dressing table An chair, air conditioning, safe, stove with 2 hobs, microwave. Me and my friend had the room where 2 single beds were pushed together as a double and found these beds uncomfortable however, we didn't really mind as we was only there for a few days An didn't plan to do much sleeping (we come for a party holiday). My other friend had the sofa bed An hadn't really complained about her bed so I'm guessing hers was fine. Our bathroom was suitable for people with disabilities so it was extremely spacious and also had a seat in the shower, the shower was also good. There was one tv which wasn't in the bedroom it was in the room with the kitchen an sofa bed, didn't look for any English channels however we come across a channel that played English music an jus left that on. The pool area was small but it was perfect for the amount of people that was around it, it was clean and also had a lifeguard. The location of this hotel is good there's a small beach 2mins away, a shop facing it, a cafe that does food and drinks as soon as you walk out the door, an the strip is about a 10/15minute walk away even though we somehow managed to get lost walking back every night. We had to check out at 11:00am and our flight wasn't until the evening so we left our cases in the luggage room An went onto the beach where we hired a pedal boat for an hour, the hotel has 2 shower rooms where guests can shower and get ready if they're in a similar situation. The man on reception on this day was also very helpful as we was unsure of where our transfer was picking us up from an he made a call to find this out for us. Enjoyed our stay here but I think if we was to return for another party holiday we would stay abit closer to the nightlife.

Basic apartments. Helpful staff. Clean rooms. Very old fashioned but you get what you paid for. Not too noisy at all which was fantastic for this part of the island and very close to sunset places such as Cafe Mambo and Cafe Del Mar. Small pool but has a lifeguard and is clean. Only bad point is that we needed an iron - no irons?!!! Weird and very unhelpful

Stayed here with my girlfriend June 1-8. Went for Formentera 1 as it was the cheapest in the area we were looking at. We were pleasantly surprised in every way. We found all the staff very polite, always pleasant and helpful. Called cabs for us pretty much daily. Room was cleaned daily, beds made, towels replaced etc. Good facilities; cold fridge, microwave, rings. Safe. Decent shower. We had a brilliant view from our balcony/window although now I forget the room number unfortunately... (4th floor). Location of hotel is perfect, for us at least. Has a real good balance of feeling chilled out but not too far away if you did want to get involved in the more lively side of San Antonio. All in all we thought the hotel and our stay were fantastic, well worth the money. I have actually just booked for myself and a friend to return in September. Need I say anymore

i never expected so much with this appartementos fromentera yet i ended up happy staying there ! the location is great, close to cafe del moar and golden budha. our stay was so easy, even though all the furniture simple but it provides all the needs. cheap cafe is just on the lower ground. the beach is just 3 minutes away by walk. eventhough not the beach beach on earth, but still awesome to enjoy the the sunset at cafe del mar. it is so eighty but still cozy. warning: i believe on high season is must be very noisy with brit teenage
