Accommodation in Ibiza - Lodging Guides
Ibiza has a false reputation as a haven for high-rise hotels and hideous resort sprawls. This simply isn't true. What the island does have is a wide range of accommodation of all shapes and sizes.
If it is a hotel you are after, the choice is huge. Ibiza's largest hotel complexes are located on the beachfront areas of Ibiza Town (Eivissa), San Antonio and Santa Eularia. In Ibiza Town, a large number of the bigger hotels are in the Marina Botafoc area, which is neatly positioned between the glamorous extravagance of the harbour and the sophisticated chic of nightclubs Pacha and El Divino. For something less fabulous but less hassle, the larger resort complexes favoured by package holiday tour operators, where everything you need is on one site, might be suitable. Cala Llonga is one example of this.
There are, however, numerous quieter and cheaper hotels to be found on Ibiza, especially in the area around Cala d'Hort and in the north of the island. A little investigation will show you the number of delightful family-run hotels on offer, most of them with a private pool and spectacular sea views.
Ibiza has a wide variety of hostels, some of which cater for the backpacker generation, and others for a less cash-strapped clientele. Many of the island's hostels are furnished to a very high quality and located close to beaches, nightlife and/ or transport links.
You may, however, prefer to get away from all the other tourists by choosing self catering accommodation, which comes in a number of different guises. The most popular are the villas. Set above the island's beautiful pine valleys, Ibiza's whitewashed villas generally come with their own private pool and offer an incredible level of seclusion from the beats and lights of the main towns. Cheap villas are more tricky to come by than the luxurious variety, but some astute investigation will find you something affordable.
Apartments are another option, and tend to be somewhat cheaper than villas. There are hundreds of apartments and flats for sale or rent in Ibiza, although they do tend to be located in the towns rather than out in the countryside. Nonetheless, they offer you a great deal of financial and social independence, and allow you to go out and enjoy the nightlife without worrying about having to creep back in at dawn.
You may be seeking property for sale on Ibiza, and once again the choice of price ranges and architectural styles is enormous. Whether you plan to move to the island permanently or buy to let, you are almost guaranteed to find your ideal property before too long.
