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.

what can i say hotel is clean and tidy food in the half board isn't that nice and not a lot of choice staff are fantastic couldn't fault them personally i would not go back its sold as a family hotel but has groups of stag and hen party's which were quiet loud due to it being near san antonio there are much nicer places to stay in ibiza the pool area was very busy i wouldn't like to be there peak seasonMore

Visited the Playa Bella on 22nd September for 11 nights. Have been to the Playa Bella Many times over the years, and thought I would update my review. We travelled with Thomson, but hired a car, all very quick and straightforward at the Airport, and at Playa Bella in no time. Greeted by very friendly Receptionist, in fact, all staff at the Playa Bella are friendly. Our room was on the Second Floor, lovely, bright, spotlessly clean and just perfect for the two of us. The Self Catering facilities in the apartment were beyond our expectations, and were much more well equipped than we had expected, they even leave you bin bags and toilet rolls, which was a nice surprise. The cleaners are wonderful, again, very chirpy, they leave you a calling card in your room on arrival, indicating on which days they will be returning for towel change, bedding etc., which is most helpful. We opted to hire a Safety deposit box in the room, which was very reasonable compared to what we have paid elsewhere before. We ate frequently at the Playa Bella bar, and the food and service was always impeccable, in fact, I would go as far as saying the staff in this Bar are quite easily some the very best we have ever come across. Again, the bar is spotlessly clean, and so are the toilets in the bar area, the staff are constantly cleaning tables, you very rarely saw empty glassed lying on the tables for more than a few minutes. The entertainment at the Resort is fabulous, some of the evening Acts, are well worth watching. Beach which is literally on your doorstep is perfect for an early morning and early evening swim. We didn't use the swimming pool, but, early morning, you would see the maintenance guy out sorting everything out for the day, and cleaning the pools. I cant recommend the Playa Bella highly enough, I love the place, I feel really at home here, and can't wait for them to offer me a job for next Season! We are looking forward to our return next year, and already thinking about how many times we will return in 2015.More

great views & on the beach

We stayed at the Playa Bella for the Jet Bou event, the hotel is set on the beach with great views. The beach is lovely with crystal clear shallow waters, the hotel is surrounded by restaurants & bars & there is always something to do but there is a ferry that takes you into town if you need it. The rooms are clean & tidy, we had one of the studios which are quite small with the sofas being the beds. Bathroom & Kitchen were well appointed though. The hotel was fairly noisy but that was down to how busy it was with the Jet Bou event. Entertainment was virtually every night & the staff from reception through to the bar & restaurant were very friendly & helpful. More

An amazing 10 Day Stay

We have just returned from a ten night stay at this wonderful hotel. We were greeted by a friendly receptionist who was very helpful. All the staff were happy to help, food was amazing and clean facilities. Although we stayed there for the "Jetbou" event we would most certainly return again. If we had to be super critical we would mention the air conditioning, it was turned off late September, which is fair enough. More
