You might be aware that I was recently on holiday in Ibiza with my boyfriend. We went there 12th May for a luxurious 2 weeks. This was our first time in Ibiza. I know Ibiza is known for its party atmosphere, BUT, it is so much more than that as I’ll prove!
Before I went, I planned to do a travel diary but I decided against it in the end (was too busy sunbathing and all that *wink*). However, I would like to share my experience with you- it’s not very often an opportunity like this comes up to blog about!
Like always, I ramble on too much! So, I have had to split this into 2 parts to make it more reader friendly. In part one I will be talking about the hotel and Santa Eulalia. In part 2, I will be talking about what we got up to and where we went.
The hotel is called Club Siesta and is part of the Sirenis group. The hotel reopened in May after a major refurbishment. We were some of the first people to enjoy the newly decorated rooms. The hotel has 4 stars and is ‘All Inclusive’ for all guests. It is situated up a small hill and is a 15-minute walk into the town.
We were very impressed with the hotel, we would 100% stay again. The rooms and communal areas are all kept very clean. The food was plentiful, of good quality and tasty. Every member of staff always had a smile on their face and they are mega hardworking despite their long working hours.
I took these pictures just before we left early morning, that’s why they are a bit dark!
I did quite a lot of research about Ibiza before I started looking at hotels. I wanted to stay somewhere that’s not full of clubs and I didn’t want to stay anywhere too quiet either. In the end, I decided on the town of Santa Eulalia. My boyfriend trusts my judgement so I’m pretty much in control of the holiday planning (not complaining, it’s a win!).
Santa Eulalia is located on the east side of the Island and is about half an hour away from the airport. There aren’t that many hotels there, it is quite a residential area. The general feel to the place is quiet and relaxed: one example of this is the beach, you don’t get bothered by people trying to sell you stuff and messages- win!
Santa Eulalia has a marina where people keep their flashy yachts and there is a small ferry port. If you like shopping there is a good variety of shops: there are your typical tourist souvenir shops and some cute clothing boutiques.
I can’t comment on the nightlife as we’re not into drinking and things like that. Every evening we went for a walk into town after dinner; all the bars and restaurants seemed quite apart from a couple of beach bars with live music.
When I stay in a hotel I usually find a couple of small things I don’t like, but I can’t fault this hotel as all. The rooms have been refurbished to an excellent quality and are very tastefully done in my opinion. One of my favourite things about the hotel are the staff, they are a great asset to the hotel.
Santa Eulalia to great place to stay if you are looking to have a relaxing time. I feel like it is a very safe place to stay and is family friendly. There is something for everyone to enjoy in Santa Eualia!
I hope you have enjoyed part one of my holiday post! Part 2 will go live next Tuesday, so make sure you check it out!
