Not quite what we expected!!!
We have just returned from our two week stay in the Club Bahamas in Ibiza which is one of the many Fiesta Group hotels. Unfortunately we were disappointed in certain aspects of the holiday overall! Firstly the food was awful, the choice was very limited and everything involved TUNA. TUNA pizza, TUNA lasagne, TUNA pasties and lets not forget TUNA pasta every single day and sometimes twice a day. The food was so repetitive and of poor quality that we ate out every evening to keep ourselves sane! This was a bit of a task in itself although not a long walk to the shops and restaurants, quite an interesting one. There were several bars and restaurants aimed at the 18-30 scene, and the teens and other youths were either drunk or worse. Playa d`en Bossa is certainly no family resort!!!
However on a more positive note the Fiesta Fun Team were fab, they were friendly enthusiastic and offered a wide range of games for children and adults alike. They also put on several shows in the evening which were on the whole, very entertaining! However, the same could not be said for the Thompson Reps. Unfortunately they looked more interested in which nightclub they would be attending after they finished work, or which activity could they do in the Kids Club that involved minimum effort from the staff. Our daughter went twice and said it was too boring to go back whic was a shame as she is very sociable and normally enjoys these type of clubs.
The pool area although cramped with sun-beds was very nice and the beach was lovely and plenty of space there for everyone. The beach bar/restarant was also nice and the food was of a better standard than in the main buffet restaurant, but was payable.
On the whole, we enjoyed our holiday but we had to make the best of it, it is not somewhere i would recommend to family or friends unfortunately. The reviews i had read before going said they considered it a 4* and there is no way this is the case. All i can say is that these holiday makers have never been to a 4* to indeed know the difference! My summary would be if you are looking for a `Butlins Abroad` then this is the holiday for you..........

Our Best Hols Ever!
Myself, my husband & our 8 year old daughter stayed at Fiesta Bahama Beach Club for 2 weeks half board from 24 June to 8 July. It truly was the best holiday we have had-with thanks to the hotel facilities, the friendly guests & most of all the reps. We made many friends & enjoyed all of the sport & games. The nightly entertainment was outstanding. The reps did most of the shows, which included The Lion King, Chicago, Mamma Mia, Sister Act, Moulin Rouge,& We Will Rock You. They worked tireslessly to entertain us & always with smiles on their faces. In particular, there were a few reps who stood out & made us feel more like friends than hotel guests-Xavi, Kris & Charlotte. They are a credit to the hotel & we were sad to leave them behind. We are planning to come here again next summer & have told everyone we meet to go as well!
It was also a perfect location as it's so close to the airport (10 minute transfer), directly on the beach & a 5 minute walk to Aquamar, the waterpark. Playa D'en Bossa is a lively town morning & night, however the hotel was so fantastic we never ventured away at night.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, especially with families. The Kidzone reps were excellent & our daughter loved going to the clubs. I can't fault Bahamas at all. Well done to all the staff & can't wait to go again next summer! :-)
fantastic holiday yet again!!!!
hi, this was our fifth time the hotel bahamas and yet again we loved it. the reps were fantastic and our 15year old son really liked the rep aritz, who did the teens club. the food in the restaurant was fantastic yet again with a wide variety of different foods. the bar staff were amazing and were always up for a laugh and a joke. Nando, Gloria, Manuel and paco were all really friendly and comunicated well with the whole family. our family give this a holiday another 5 stars. we arrived back from our 2 week holiday on saturday 29th of july and we all enjoyed it so much that we have already booked for next year. hope to see everyone back next year thank you very much the Rigby family.
A Lovely Family Holiday
Having to book a holiday for the whole family was quite stressful and worrying, we were going with Nannys and Grandads and young children ages 7, 4 and 3. However i should not have worried as there was something for everyone at this lovely hotel. My children loved the pools, kids club and there favourite the mini disco. Nans and Grandads were just happy to watch the children have fun but they also loved the brilliant entertainment which was put one by the hotel. I loved the pool aerobics by kris (he is very funny). and my partner was just happy that there was a bar (and a lovely lady entertainer called charlotte).
The food at the hotel was very nice, no dodgie bellies at all. And the Staff all worked very hard, this includes the cleaning ladies, our room was cleaned ever day and the hotel was spotless.
Overall we all had a lovely time and would be happy to return there again.
Bahamas Beach Club Ibiza
Returned 6 September. Had 1 week at Bahamas Beach Club, four adults. Hotel was very clean and our rooms were spacious, beds were quite comfy but there was no air con. The food was good, we were in there early and it was always hot and we didnt have to queue but felt that more vegetarian options are required as most pasta dishes were tuna or meat based.
The beach location was nice but a walk to the shops was not the most picturesque of journeys.
would advise on the all inclusive drinks and get it at the start of your holiday as you have to purchase it for the full week especially if your staying in the hotel for entertainment and not clubbing as it would be costly. You can also get tea, coffee and bottled water so it was handy in the day.
The night time entertainment was good and the team worked hard
Good hotel, But
My family and I stayed here in sept 06, we arrived in the middle of the night by taxi, which was only 10 mins from airport. The taxi was only 9 euros, not £20.00 according to thompsons!
The rooms were old but immaculately clean, and were cleaned to an excellent standard every day. The food was of high quality, and plenty of choice, even for our 4 year old (cakes out of this world). All was going excellent until we placed our towels on the sunbeds by the pool early one morning, only to find that after breakfast they were stolen. We spoke to reception about the matter who were completly dismissive to the point of being rude and saying it was our own fault for leaving them unattended. They told us to buy more. We went to speak to the thompson rep, who was not there that day, but had left a contact no. The helpline said that they couldn't be responsible as there were other tour operators using the hotel (cop-out). As the week went on we were hearing more and more reports of various things being stolen from guests, expensive items too, push-chairs etc..It's a cracking hotel just unfortunate that there's such an active problem with theft.
