Playa Bella Apartments  

These apartments have real family appeal, with kids' pools and entertainment around the clock. Apartments come king-sized and the 2 restaurants offer up please-all fare. Plus, its beachfront spot means San Antonio's sands are just moments away.

This place is right on Punta Xinxo Beach, just along from San Antonio proper. And its huge terrace virtually melts into the beach. Cross the walkway and you’re on the sands in seconds.

As to the complex itself, it’s made up of four-storey blocks grouped around the terrace. Sunbeds are here in force and the main, cloverleaf-shaped pool is pretty, with palm trees rising up from its centre. One of the pool’s ‘leaves’ is reserved for toddlers. The highlight, though, is the neighbouring splash pool. Complete with a novelty shark, shipwreck, showers and chutes, it’s the equivalent of a miniature aqua park.

Apartments are spacious and light. Most have undergone a recent refurbishment, too. Fresh magnolia walls have been teamed with blue-and-yellow furnishings. Smart kitchenettes and balconies or terraces finish things off. In terms of size, you can choose between studios and one, two or three-bedroom apartments, some of which offer bay views.

Elsewhere, you’ve got all the essentials on tap. There are two bright and breezy restaurants serving international dishes, plus a friendly bar on the beachfront. Add games and shows in the evening and you’ve got entertainment covered.

What’s more, getting to San Antonio is easy. Buses run into town from nearby or you can walk there – it’ll take around 45 minutes. Or there’s always the more scenic option of water taxis, which cruise to the centre or other nearby beaches. And if you don’t fancy going into town, there are plenty of restaurants and bars just outside the complex.

Everthing we needed for our short stay

Went out to Ibiza for 5 days for close friends wedding and needed a 'cheap and cheerful' we were absolutely amazed by the standard of accommodation we were given! We had 2 bedroom apartment, equipped with everything we needed, extremely clean and the balcony was huge with fabulous sea view! Reception staff were so helpful in arranging taxis for us to the wedding etc and attended to our every need. We ate in the restaurant on 2 occasions and the standard was excellent. The only downside for us personally was the noisy conversations from passers by which woke us up at 3am, presumably coming back from a club, but as it was a short stay we were happy to put up with it. The pool area was lovely and clean with plenty of sunbeds. We would not have chosen this area for our usual annual holiday but will definitely be returning.More



I've stayed at many places around the bay over the last 11 years, but I keep returning to Playa Bella. The apartments are fantastic, the older ones are a little dated but clean and on par with other establishments in the area. The refurbished apartments are superb, to a very modern and high standard. The bar is great. The menu was changed this year and is much better. All the staff are friendly and helpful. The facilities are continually being cleaned and looked after. Spotless and clean. Booked in for 2015. More

This is our 2nd time at Playa Bella for Jetbou... All the staff are friendly, food gets better each year and our rooms/linen were cleaned every 2/3 days.. We've been back less than 2 weeks and already re booked for Jetbou 2015....More


Just got back Oct 2014

2nd year at this hotel and to be honest thought this would be the last BUT, my oh my the changes and improvements that have been made are enough that we've booked to go back next year.... We now have comfortable beds as opposed to the skimpy mattresses of last year, the Food this year has been amazing, they have a new chef and boy does it show, I'd love to see more a Spanish food as opposed to the English menu but that's just me....Entertainment good family holiday Fun and Chip the kids entertainer....well we just wanted to pack him up and take him home. The location itself is good for families, friends couples, you are a water taxi ride away from San Antonio if you wanted cafe's, nice shops, restaurants if you want lively evening entertainment then this can be found here too. But the hotel offers enough if you want a bit of family fun...good pool, great entertainment, Fantastic Food and the Staff.....nothing is too much trouble....I recommend this hotel and its locationMore
