Living on its reputation
We have been to Playa den bossa in Ibiza every year with the exception last year, since 2001 and have stayed in the Don Toni, Bahamas beach club and this year the Palm beach, mainly on the reccomendation of family members and the reviews of sites like this.
Good things first
Food - Best of all the hotels we have stayed in, in Ibiza.
Rooms - clean and excellent maid service, bit small and beds not that comfy, but for the amount of time you are in them, then no probs.
All inclusive option is fantastic value.
Overall another great holiday in Ibiza.
The problem is that possibly this hotel was always going to struggle to live up to its reputation, particulary when the all the reps were different, it just didnt have the same feeling we have had in past years that you were really involved and encouraged to join in. on some of the activities ( Archery for example ) the reps told you what to do then just stood there and told you the score at the end, some nights the entertainment just seemed to Peter out rather than a big finale, also they seem to go mad announcing a number of activites around 11:00 and then there was a huge gap with nothing.
Dont worry if youve booked you will have a great time, I just dont think its possibly as good as it has been, personally I prefered the Bahamas beach club.
One absolute must do while you are there is the Premier Sailing day, not cheap but fantastic value.
fantastic as ever!!
We have just returned from this hotel for the 5th time and it never fails to keep us happy!
I dont know if the reviewer who was there on the 18 th july is getting this hotel mixed up with another! as our rooms were immaculate and to keep out valuables safe we were happy to pay the equivalent of £25 for 2 weeks for deposit box.
This hotel IS aimed at families.It is right on the beach which has shallow waters. The only problem was that last year the sunbeds were FREE on the beach and this year they were 3 euros.
The food is great and there plenty of variety for all and ALL the staff are lovely.You can go all inclusive when you get there if you want.
The fiesta entertainment team led by the brilliant TOM are upbeat and energetic but not pushy so you are made to feel happy to join in if you want, but dont need to if its not your thing.
If there had only been a little more for the 8 to 12 yr olds to do through the fiesta team activities maybe football like last year! this would be my only fault but my 2 children were very happy and I did not see very much of them !! We met up with several families from the last 3 years and we all had a fantastic holiday, and we could not believe the small moans we were heard like there was nothing for smaller kids!there was games and clubs and something going on ALL the time.Cant wait to return!
THIS HOLIDAY IS THE BEST ONE YET. [and i have been on a few.] The Hotel itself is very clean and tidy, and very presentable. the staff are extremely friendly and are willing to help you for anything. the reps at the hotel are great, i loved them all and they really do try and make sure you are never bored!
theres always always always something to do, and what with the hotel being on the beach you can choose between that or the pool. having taken sneaky looks at the other hotels and thier pools i can say that palm beach is the best out of them all.
the foods quite good, after 2 weeks you want your own food back again but it will do and satisfies all different types of eaters.
there are a lot of germans and italians that go here, all of which seem to speak english and i made many new and good friends out there!
the town itself is great, such a lively and friendly atmosphere. playa den bossa has all the best clubs and bars only a 10 minute walk away form the hotel.
i cannot wait to go back again - i am booking it for 2008, it was an amazing holiday and i absolutely loved it! i recommend!!
Still as excellent!
I'm 14 and visited this hotel this year for the second time with my mum and dad. With food choices like this place, a beach right on the doorstep, a beautiful pool and surroundings, it's actually hard to pick at something!! Well, the food (buffet style) is lovely and there is allsorts every single day. We upgrade to all inclusive as soon as we get there and after a fortnight you still want more. During the day, just to top it all of with the gorgeous weather, the reps make sure there's lots of things going on all day long: cocktail games, sports, clubs for children (I've never been but kids that have always love it). The only one thing I missed this year was the teenage club which I attended last year, and we all performed on the stage, but this year whilst the kids performed 5 times throughout the fortnight, the teens didn't at all. But then again, all day long there's things for teens to do. Cocktail games are strictly over 16s this year, which is quite gutting because it's SuperFamily, so it's nice to be able to do stuff together BUT that's nothing drastic enough to change my opinion of this beautiful hotel!!! The entertainment as ever was fabulous, Tom doing a great job as head of the team, Carol there to make you laugh, Gaby what a wonderful dancer!!! They all have their own special qualities and they form together to make this great, strong team! From Moulin Rouge to Mammia Mia, each show was enjoyable, so much that when outsiders come in to perform, you miss the reps. The club dances every night are brilliant! Now, outside the hotel, literally a few steps away is the beach and YES - there were hardly any jellyfish this year, unlike last, when we all got stung. Playa D'en Bossa is a great town with lots of good shops and loads of great bars (Murphy's and Bora Bora Beach are our favourites!!). Ibiza Town isn't far away by bus. Space is a five minute walk away, and the airport near enough to see the planes, but amazingly, the hotel isn't disturbed by the noise!! The rooms are clean and the maids do the best job, (careful though, if you leave sweets lying around, you may come back to an empty packet!!!!) It's great that there's air con, cause you need it in that hot weather!!! I arrived home last night, and I can safely say that after four weeks in the last 2 years, we all want more!!!!! Hope this is helpful if you're thinking of planning a trip!!
this is my room at the hotel
Where the drivers?
Hi, everyone! This might seem like a strange question, but I was wondering if someone could give me the name of some of the most popular banks in Ibiza. I'd really appreciate it! Thanks.
Re: Ibiza banks...
All readily available on the Internet if you google.
But these are the ones we most frequently we use when in Spain -
Santander (we have an account)
Banco Bilbao Vizcaya
Banco Popular Español
Re: Ibiza banks...
I think Ibiza is a spin off of Spain and have spanish banks. Is Ibiza part of Spain anyone?
Re: Ibiza banks...
Yes. It is part of the Balearic Islands, a short distance off-shore in the mediterranean along with Mallorca and and Menorca. So too are the Canary Islands - Tenerife, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Palma, Gran Canaria, Gomera,Hierro and other uninhabited islands lying off the NW coast of Africa.
Re: Ibiza banks...
Yes Ibiza (Eivissa in local language) is part of Spain.
Here you have the list of bank offices there:
Not surprisingly, local banks/saving banks originary from the Balearic Islands are the most popular, as Banca March or Caixa Balear (named in the listing as it's complete name, Caja de Ahorros y Monte de Piedad de las Baleares), and CAM (Caja de Ahorros del Mediterraneo). Closely followed by the ubiquitous "La Caixa" (Caixa D'Estalvis i Pensions de Barcelona), the most powerful saving bank in Spain.
