First Time Visiting Ibiza ?

First time in Ibiza?

Or maybe it's the first time for a long time. Don't worry of you are an Ibiza virgin, however we will warn you that after your first visit most people become addicted to Ibiza!

So here are some basic suggestions and recommendations, but the main thing to be aware of is that

Ibiza is a beautiful and diverse island. Ibiza is also a small and compact island, but there is so much space that there is plenty of room for those that come to relax Ibiza and those that come to party.
We don't offer villas next to bars & nightclubs! You will only find the clubs if you go looking for them!

Families with younger children:

The east coast and the north are generally popular with families looking for a relaxed stay in Ibiza. If you are looking for a villa that is walking distance to beaches and, or restaurants then the advice is to book early as these villas do tend to get booked up early. The majority of villas are in quiet locations about a 5 minute drive from the nearest restaurant. In Ibiza even if you are in the rural heartland on central or north Ibiza it is unlikely that you will be more than 20 minutes from a beach. So please don't worry that somehow your will end up staying next to a Club 18-30 hotel as very few villas are slap bang in the middle of a resort (by the way does Club 18-30 still exist ?). In Ibiza you could be 2 kilometres from one of the clubs and not even know it is there. The clubs are generally situated around Ibiza Town, Playa den Bossa and San Antonio, although Privilege & Amnesia are located about 10 minutes outside of Ibiza Town. 


Over a million people come to Ibiza every years (the average year round population is around 115,000) and despite popular opinion most people are not coming for some kind of hedonistic pilgrimage. They are coming for the beaches, the vibe, the scenery and the food... You may decide your villa is so relaxing and charming that you won't want to leave it during your entire stay. You may decide to put your toe in to the "clubbing scene" and arrange 1 night out to see how it goes (we can arrange a babysitter)…One thing is guaranteed: You won't be the oldest and there is no reason why you should feel out of place… we guarantee it's not like the night club in your nearest town. Beach clubs are a "must do", and these range from laid back to full on.


Don't worry about shopping and bringing nappies etc. We offer a "Full Fridge Service" (supermarket delivery) and about 3 weeks before arrival you can make your online shop for convenience and to avoid those Ryanair excess baggage charges (how can anyone survive on 15KG luggage allowance?). If you can't see at item on the list that you need then let us know and we will see if we can add it to the list… if not then at least you know you need to bring it with you

 

Families with teenage children:
We feel your pain but we applaud you for getting credibility points with your kids… they won't tell you that this is a really cool (sick ?) idea of course, but everyone in your family will know it… and of course you're allowed to be a little but smug! There are a number of villas that are in really quiet areas but only a 5 to 10 minute taxi ride from some amazing nights out…and for that additional peace of mind we offer a 24/7 door to door transportation service so that everyone is delivered safe and sound back to the villa but our charming, responsible and very good English speaking drivers.

You'll almost certainly need to hire a car, but it's a really easy island to get around and in most cases the roads are in excellent condition… the traffic jams aren't like they are at home, although you may sometimes be held up by sheep in the road! More than likely you'll take a wrong turn and stumble across a little café, bar or restaurant, one of the many joys the island. But if you don't plan on hiring a car then there are generally two options

a)      The official taxi drivers offer a good service, but please bear in mind that most villas don't have street addresses as such. We will give you the GPS co-ordinates, although not all taxis are fitted with sat-nav. And of course in peak hours you are likely to have to wait for a taxi. Clearly be very wary of any unlicensed drivers and we don't recommend using Uber or similar apps

b)      Because of the above we offer a door to door transportation 24/7 in an 8 seater Mercedes Vito minivan. The drivers all speak English, know the villa location and offer a friendly and professional service

So then it just a case of whether to stay close to Ibiza Town or Playa de Bossa or San Antonio..our advice would be to consider somewhere like San Rafael (Sant Rafal), which is located about 15 minutes from all of these places, bit also close to the clubs of Amnesia & Privilege..but in Ibiza everywhere should be within a 20 to 30 minute drive

 

Travelling with friends:
You can choose to stay somewhere rural & relaxed, or closer to the beaches and the parties
If you are celebrating a landmark birthday or event, or just getting everyone together finally after years of talking about it then where better to hang out than in Ibiza. But you dont have to party 24/7 if you don't want to:
Why not have a chef cook for you at yiour villa
or watch your favourite film (or do Karaoke) via a pop up cinema - popcorn included !

and for the party side of things then one week won't be enough to do all the parties you'll want to do. Here are the main venues:

Clubs:

With so many places to party in Ibiza that you probably won't have time or the energy to party in your villa… and to be honest we would rather you didn't party in your villa. We ask that you respect the property and respect the neighbours by not partying in your villa. Please also be aware that any noise after midnight will not be tolerated and that if the police knock at your door then you will be fined.

 

Sport:
Ibiza also has many sporting activities you can experience including:

Paint ball
Gym
Tennis & paddle
Go Karting
Walking
Cycling
Climbing
Assault course "Go Ape" style - idela for families


And of course if you want something less energetic then many of the better hotels offer spa days & treatments

 

Getting Around
Hiring a car is the best option but at night time when you want a drink or two we can provide 24/7 door to door transportation to and from your villa to clubs, restaurants and beach clubs.
