    I love that you are exploring the world with your toddler! I’ve never been to Ibiza but it looks like it’s either crazy with partiers or completely dead in the low season. Scary about the construction hazards!

    Wow…this is really disappointing to read as Ibiza is meant to be really good. Perhaps this is so only in the high season. However what you have described in the low season sounds more like it should be ‘closed season’. I know that low season you will often get discounted deals which encourage people to still travel and use the facilities, but if they do this, there should also have a duty of care to ensure you still get a reasonable experience.

      It was a bit of a disappointment though we did make the most of it and had a great time, but we spent little time in the resort areas or in cafes or anything. We could only eat at the hotel and enjoy free entertainment like walking and the beach

    If they cannot maintain in low season then they should not allow that area for tourists. It is good you saved your little one from freezing pool. 80% of the hotels are closed and under maintenance which is really not acceptable as you get no choice of restaurants to eat.

    I have always associated Ibiza with summer like most people and being there during summer. I have wanted to go back though to explore during off peak without the crowds but to be honest after reading your post, I might have to rethink that. I can handle things not being open but everything
    only for short periods of time. I love to go of exploring and then coming back to relax with a glass of wine.

    Wow, that’s something that you never hear about. Low season means that nothing is actually open for you to enjoy. The parties next door must have been really tough with a toddler! Ahhh! I am not against parties, but I used to run a hotel (and lived on-site) and I was hyper-vigilant for any signs of parties disrupting other guests. So many nights of sleep were lost by me trying to protect the paying guests from being annoyed by parties starting. Sound travels pretty easily in most hotels…

  6. What an interesting twist to a trip to Ibiza, it looks a bit like a ghost town. I can totally imagine the cold pool problem, luckily the sea was close. Never been to Ibiza but high season seems a lot more appealing now.

    I’ve only ever had friends visit Ibiza to ‘party’ so it was really interesting to read another perspective of Ibiza. It’s a shame that services seem to be so poor during low season, especially the security – you’d hope that would remain the same the whole year round. I hope you still enjoyed your holiday even with these faults.

  8. Ibiza sure has a reputation for being nothing but a party central, so it doesn’t surprise me that it’s dead during the low season. Didn’t think most restaurants and attractions would be closed, though! Doesn’t really leave you with much to do..Non-heated swimming pools during low season is indeed quite common in Europe.

    Such a useful post. I didn’t know that everything is closed down during off season in Ibiza. Ibiza is so famous for partying so I was not surprised that you were waken up by the loud next door. I think I will only visit there in high season after those reasons listed above.
