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.

Lovely stay

Weve just arrived home after staying 7 nights at playa Bella. The hotel is a good choice for families with small children which is why we chose to stay here. It host a small pool, mini water slides and park, with a free trampoline on a evening. The rooms were small but had everything we needed including free aircon. The strip didn't have much more than one family friendly bar after another. Most have amusements all around to keep the kids entertained. The Jamaican beach bar was amazing; pricy but worth a try esp when crazy Jamie is on shift. Best cocktail you'll find on the island. A small walk (maybe 10-15 mins) offers more choice of food. The steakhouse is a MUST! Taking a trip into ibiza town will cost you around €28 in a taxi each way or a €2 bus each way from San antonio. Little markets and beautiful scenery. You can get a 3€ Water taxi taking you into san antonio itself (coming hourly) and it's only a second walk along the beach front. With this in mind, we found a lot of younger party groups staying at the hotel for a cheaper holiday.stay. We experienced a few problems with them coming and going at all hours. Buzzing everyone's rooms and pressing door bells. (you do wonder why they'd book somewhere with a water pirate ship playpark???) One of our last mornings we awoke to find someone had vomited over into our balcony, spoiling our two year old clothes and towels. The hotel however dealt with this issue in a good mannor. We do worry this will get worse as the main part of san antonio gets more and more expensive pushing partying groups further out. We enjoyed our stay overall but it wouldn't be somewhere we'd return.

Wonderful holiday - would return

We have just returned today from 7 nights at the apartments and after reading a mix bag of reviews werent sure what to expect. We shouldn't have worried. The check in was simple, basically can I have your passports, here is your key. No info on what is in the complex restaurants, facilities, entertainment etc no offer of the deposit box, wifi etc Room was great would recommend the one bed apartment for a couple though we wouldnt have wanted anything smaller Modern decor throughout and bathroom and kitchen up to spec. Only thing missing was a broom - the maid comes twice in the week once for bedding twice for towels but she never cleaned while we were there (or that we could tell). The complex has a great pool area with two bars/restaurants. "La Bahia" was fantastic - great food, reasonable prices and excellent staff. Not so impressed with the other although we only ate there once. Nearby you have the beach, plenty of shops and restaurants & the taxi boat to the town is a couple of minutes walk from the hotel.More

Jonathan A,

Fantastic Family Holiday

We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment on level 1 (111). The apartment was very spacious and contained all the facilities we needed. The reception were very helpful and pointed us in the right direction when needed. We had a fantastic view overlooking the sea. The balcony ran the full length of the apartment. There was more than enough room for a family holiday consisting of two large teenage boys and a teenage girl. We didn't use the eating facilities within the hotel itself but used a number of eating establishments attached to the hotel (overlooking the pool) but enjoyed a few nights of the hotel entertainment in one of the hotel bars. San Antonio was either within a 45 minute walk or via the water taxi (3 euros) which was only 5 minutes walk away. This was ideal for the lads who enjoyed visiting Café Mambo or other bars with pre show sets from world famous DJ's like Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Duke Dumont and Fat Boy Slim or the ladies in our party who liked to visit the street market in San Antonio just a minute walk from the water taxi. I would highly recommend this hotel for any type of holiday from young couple to families. This may well have been our last family holiday together due to the age of the kids but I would rate it as one of the best.More

Playa bella delivered again :)

Back from our 4th year to playa bella, fantastic time as always. All of the staff go out of their way to help you, on arriving there was a confusion with our check in dates which meant we wasn't booked in for three days later but paco on reception kindly gave us a room overnight. The next day (The big Boss) Daniel arranged a room for us even though it was high season so thank you so much room 324 was fantastic with a lovely pool view :). Bingo and evening entertainment was enjoyed every night with some new acts , The double d's and Danny murphy are our favourites . And CHIP is amazing keeping all the guests happy he works so hard and he is a credit to playa bella . Thank you see u all in 2015.More
