Hotel Torre del Mar
Ranked #6 of 33 Hotels in Playa d'en Bossa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 September 2011

We visited this hotel for 5 nights. Previously (2 years ago) I have stayed at Hotel Garbi, also located in Playa d'en Bossa which is also 4*. Before that I have stayed 3 times in a 2 star down in Figueretas-Ibiza (Lux Mar/Panoramic/Tropical Garden, which is basically the same complex). Both Garbi and Torre del Mar are way better compared to the 2 star in Figueretas. So I will leave that place/those 3 places out of the scope for this review.

Zooming in on the Torre del Mar compared to Garbi I would rate both of the hotels as comparable and give them 8 out 10 points (for Spanish standards).

People & bar
Overall I would say that Garbi is very hip, hot and happening. That hotel caters to the somewhat younger crowd so there is more stuff going on at the Garbi pool and lobby bar. Torre del Mar caters both to the party people as well as some just seeking some R&R. No families (in September), only saw 1 kid I guess. They do have a children's pool but is occupied by adults most of the time. The party people visiting Torre del Mar probably just party outside of the hotel because the atmosphere around the pool and hotel was mainly very relaxing/chill-out. There is a nice outside terrace at Torre del Mar with bar/food service but there is no lounge-like-lobby bar inside like at Hotel Garbi. Service at the bar for drinks is good. We did not like the food for lunch. Eat out (see next section)!

Location
So it was not a big pool party at Torre del Mar. However we loved the hotel nevertheless. It is just a short walk to places like Bora Bora (15 minute walk) or the taxi boat to Ibiza town, so you can enter the action anytime you want to. The Torre del Mar hotel in itself is more quiet than Hotel Garbi and this can be nice if you want to take it easy for some time (and you can enter the daytime party time and nightlife anyway within walking distance). There are some very good restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. If you want to enjoy lunch walk towards Figueretas beach (left hand while standing in front of the hotel) and eat at some of the very nice restaurants over there. It is a 10 minute walk. You can walk from Ibiza town to this hotel using the gravel path that leads to the end of Figueretas. It probably is a 45 minute walk. I would grab a cab on your way down to Ibiza town. No taxis waiting at the hotel. Probably your best bet is to ask the reception to call one for you. We just went on the streets and had a hard time flagging a cab down. Or take the taxi boat (5 minute walk from hotel).

Pool & spa
The pool at Garbi is bigger (square at Garbi, round at Torre del Mar) and also their spa beats the Torre del Mar spa hands down. The Garbi spa is cool and nice whereas the Torre del Mar spa is a bit outdated. I loved the Garbi spa (for European standards) after a day in the sun and only visited Torre del Mar's spa once.

Service around the pool at Torre del Mar was outstanding! There is this S.O.S. guy working around the pool who is taking great care of the guests at the pool with sun loungers, tables (for drinks) and keeping the pool area clean warning people not to bring glasses into the pool etc. He is doing an outstanding job and I think he is one of the most valuable assets of this hotel! He makes you feel very welcome and treats you as royalty. One day he had a day off and service was noticeable worse that day. So the pool guy is a great guy offering great service. He seems to love his job and takes it very seriously. If you read this, thanks!

Rooms
The rooms at Torre del Mar are pretty OK. Nice detail, each room has a speaker in the ceiling and you can listen to 2 different Ibiza radio stations in your room; one playing house/dance music and the other station offering more chill-out/lounge music. Beds are OK (a bit hard, pretty cheap mattresses I guess), flat screen TV, bathroom is pretty OK and you have a small balcony. Room cleaning was perfect; also if you are sleeping in late (just use the do not disturb sign, this CAN be different in Spain/Ibiza you know). Room is pretty small, but adequate.

Noise
I read reviews that this hotel can be noisy? Actually, we never noticed any problems with noise. There is an in-room door between the hallway and your room and if you close this hardly any outside noise will enter the room. Maybe these complaints are from elderly people? We had no issues whatsoever.

Breakfast
Breakfast is great! Nice restaurant (view on the sea, lots of sun but good air conditioning) and the food is above par. Freshly squeezed orange juice in the morning! All kinds of breads, eggs, fruit, coffee, juices etc. Very good! I would say breakfast at Torre del Mar is better than Garbi's breakfast.

Generic
Service at the reception on check-in and check-out was good as well as their service if you have any questions. It took a while until the rooms where ready (1 at 15 hrs, the other only at 16 hrs) but who cares.

All in all a great hotel for the price we paid (EUR 680 for 5 nights in a double room during high season).

Room Tip: We had the cheapest room (view on the mountains) and it was OK for us.

Hotel is very good, clean and nice, right on the beach, 15 minutes walk on the beach from Bora Bora, and walking distance to Space (about 20-25 mins of leisurly walk). Location is really one of the best because it's a bit far from all the loud place but really not that far so you can absolutely walk. I would stay there again. The hotel is clean and neat, it has great terrace cafe and really neat pool. I would totally recommend it. It's quiet and peaceful with great views on the bay with little boats and overlooking sea.

Sea view room nice. Room a little dated but clean and the view makes up for it. Pool area is very pleasant as are staff at pool side restaurant. Biggest draw back was inefficient reception staff. Was overcharged for a massage in the spa and reception shrugged and said it was a different company and made no attempt to apologise or reduce the charge. Waited for over an hour for a taxi on the saturday night and staff nowhere to be seen in terms of overseeing the taxi queue where with so many people waiting people needed to be told who was next. Be early if you have a dinner reservation! WIFI in hotel didn't work. Overall ok but unhelpful reception staff spoiled our impression.

Hotel is really clean and really peaceful.. Staff personel are very helpful for being Spanish.
The Pool is absolutely Fantastic really Clean and Relaxing.
Hotel is directly overlooking Playa D'en Bossa, which is basically the best location to stay at in Ibiza.
Taxi's from the Airport only cost €13.00 which is also brilliant.
B'fast in the morning has an exceptional choice ... and is very good.
Hotel is more or less 1.5Km Beach walk from Bora Bora Bar.

The hotel is in a great position and the pool and cleanliness of the hotel is excellent.
We arrived at 2pm and our room was not ready and was told that check in after 12 noon means anytime for the hotel as well as the guests ...... that's a new one on me! The staff on reception were quite rude throughout the stay to be honest.
Our room was a twin mountain view and was not worth Eur440.00 for 3 nights. It was small and very noisy. Our first room was 101 and after being woken up at 6am by what I can only say sounded like chairs being dragged across the floor. I later found out the room was next to the staff area. I asked to be moved and in fairness we were moved two floors up to room 301. The walls to the hotel are so thin you can hear the person going to the toilet in the next room.
The hotel is very dated and if I return I will try and get in the hotel Garbi it looks a lot nicer and is alot cheaper.

We stayed at the Torre del Mar for 2 days, one night. The hotel is well located within walking distance to the city of Ibiza (mostly walking on the beach which is lovely). The room Is very clean, the bed very comfortable, the bathroom is large, clean and all equipped. The staff is very friendly and helpful. From the hotel, you can buy tickets to all major night clubs at discounted rate. The hotel surroundings are beautiful, with a large pool, trees, fountains and with a beautiful view of the sea. Tennis court was in great condition. I was expecting a bit more from the breakfast but it was fresh and good. A few things would have made this hotel a bit better: there was a bad smell when sitting on the grounds, facing the sea. Also, there was no direct access to the beach and no lounge chairs belonging to the hotel on the beach. So a vy once hotel but a few things to make it better...

Good sized pool in excellent setting with plentiful supply of sunbeds and umbrellas. Hotel is only a short taxi ride from the airport and is located on the seafront between the resorts of Playa d'en Bossa and Figueretes.
A two minute walk to the boats to Ibiza town which cost 6 euros return.
Typically Spanish hotel with pleasant and polite staff.
Buffet breakfast was good with the usual fare but dinner in the evening was slightly disappointing with no chef cooking food to order as is normal in 4 star hotels these days. Wine at dinner rather expensive.
Limited evenig entertainment around outdoor bar.
The hotel was clean and quite and overall we had a very pleasant holiday.

Room Tip: Had a room with seaview which was very quite. But so was the hotel when we stayed.
