Hotel: San Remo Hotel Ibiza

Date: 19th – 23rd April, 2017

Room: Twin Room (2/3 beds)


We were actually pretty impressed with our first glimpse of the hotel. It was way nicer than we had expected since we got the hotel at a low, low price overall. It was very clean and well kept and nice and brightly decorated. It took forever to check in, a number of guests were left waiting and Travis got really bored and started to run around to explore. We could tell right away the hotel promoted the party scene, there was loud music and tank-topped lads coming from the pool area sporting beer and sunglasses.

The hotel is in Bahia de San Antonio which is just outside of San Antonio. This is on the West of the island. The area in low season is pretty dead. Absolutely nothing was open and there was almost nothing for kids to do in the area. We even struggled to get a bus there (the signs at the airport indicated that they did not run during ‘winter?’)


Sleeping here was almost impossible because of the noise. If you managed to find some silence you would probably fall between the crack of the two beds. If you have your toddler with you they are likely to be too small to sleep on a big bed alone so will take up the middle of your bed and will be the one the fall down the gap in the beds. Lucky for us Travis likes gaps for some reason and snuggles into them. We did not sleep well here, not even for one night.

Partiers. There was every kind of party animal at San Remo Hotel Ibiza you can imagine. The loud Brits who get too drunk and start fights with each other, girls holidays, lads holidays, Ibiza lovers who had been pre-baby, couples and many more. We found there to be a few older people too who were there to enjoy a bit winter sun and a cheap break. There were a few families but most headed out because of the insane noise that happened every day and night.

My favourite part

I loved the food arrangement. We had went all-inclusive and we were nicely surprised with the range of food the hotel offered even though it was low season. We were also nicely surprised by the welcome gift the hotel left for us.

My least favourite part

The noise. Oh. my. god. the noise. We were woken up every single night. Firstly by some drunken idiot knocking our door repeatedly. Then by parties into the early hours of the morning,, drunk girls shouting at their boyfriends. You name it. The party people also left some yucky looking spillages in the halls of the hotel. Don’t get me wrong the cleaners did their best but we were up early with Travis most days and noticed the blood and puke before they did.

  • Oops, sad to know that you were unable to sleep here. I avoid places which encourage late night drunk parties. They really need to work on the factors which have gone wrong. Thanks for an honest feedback.

  • Sounds like a nice hotel, but not suitable for families from what I read! I hope little Travis wasn’t disturbed too much! Your welcome gift was a nice surprise, those flip flops will definitely come in handy in Ibiza.

  • Welcome gifts are always such a pleasure, just to idea of getting something. Too bad the hotel type did not match your needs and low season was definitely on. I can image waking up early and walking around before it is proper cleaned, yak.

    • Yeah the gifts were awesome and very much greeted! Yeah it wasn’t they best but we didn’t let it spoil our holiday.

  • Ah if you can’t sleep, it’s maybe not a good pick. Well it’s Ibiza the, I guess most of the people are there to party! But it’s nice anyway that at least at the hotel one can rest!

  • It sounds like my idea of hell, but that’s because I’m clearly not its target audience. I suspect that it doesn’t really aim for family travellers either, because the excessive drunken antics, the noise and “blood and puke” are definitely not family-friendly. Really appreciate honest reviews like this, helps people to find the places that suit them and avoid the ones that won’t!

    • Exactly Kavey. There were a lot of families here who I suspect regretted their decision of hotel because of the noise

  • I stayed at a more than 100 years old hotel with the same in San Francisco and it was such a nice experience. I am sorry to hear you couldn’t sleep well. That’s the most important factor for me to choose a hotel.

  • This looks like a nice place to stay in Ibiza! It looks like your baby enjoyed it too. Next time I m in Ibiza, I will have to check it out!

  • They are really annoying the loud Brits who start fighting aren’t they! I think the San Remo is good for partying but not for traveling with kids to Ibiza. I’m not sure I would travel with my daughter to Ibiza and being a jealous dad when she gets older I won’t let her go there on holiday either!

    • They sure are! It was a good trip away and the wee man loved the beach and ocean so me not sleeping well didn’t matter as long as my son had a good time! I do understand what you man about a protective dad as I would be exactly the same haha

  • The hotel looks decent though, but the noise part is annoying. Compromising on sleep is not expected when you check in to a hotel. Btw I loved the video and your super cute baby.

  • Any place with so much partying will definitely not work for as we have a light sleeper. My 4yr old wakes up at every beep. I can see you had fun regardless of the other stuff. Thanks a lot for sharing your review on the hotel.

  • This is a perfect post for me 🙂 I love hotels! YOu have a really cute family and I enjoy watching your adventures in this hotel. Your baby boy seems like one day he will become a travel blogger 😀
    Have a good day.


  • A well written honest review. I and my husband are also big time party freaks but still, we look for a place where there is peace at night. It is really annoying when someone beats at your door that late. Still, with such a big negative there are positives to remember too, the gifts, good food and the price at which you got this place.

  • Ibiza is known for its notorious party. Sorry to know that you were had that bad experience. I would absolutely thrown a wobbler there! It’s not really ideal when you have a kid and trying to relax.

  • This is indeed a candid review and helpful for readers, especially for those heading to those parts. The hotel is fine for those who want to go and rock with parties. But especially if you are with family/kids and want some quality sleep, one needs to avoid the place. Of course every place has its pluses and minuses, so it depends on what one is looking out for.

    • Yeah it does absolutely depend on what you are looking for! I feel if its a family holiday where you need quality sleep then this may not be the best place, saying that it was a really nice hotel!
