San Antonio is renowned for its vibrant atmosphere and exciting nightlife, as well as its numerous activities on land and sea. From the Sunset Strip, visitors can witness the sensational Ibiza sunsets, with glorious oranges, reds and pinks, as the sun slowly descends below the horizon. The beach is a popular spot for younger crowds, and people can later move on to the many bars and clubs on the seafront promenade. Boat trips and watery activities, such as jet skiing and parasailing, are also popular. Not to be missed are super clubs Es Paradis and Eden, beach club O Beach Ibiza, Ibiza Rocks Hotel, and the bars of the West End. Nearby beaches, like Cala Bassa and Cala Conta, can be reached by ferry from the marina. Read on to discover the best hotels to stay at in San Antonio.
R&C hotel Mirador de Dalt Vila Ibiza
While many flock to beachside resorts in Ibiza, the Hotel Mirador de Dalt Vila offers a very different perspective on the island. The 19th-century property is a former Lord’s manor house, tucked into the walled city of Dalt Vila, a Unesco World Heritage site. It was only recently transformed from a residential home into a hotel, with 12 guest rooms located in the main house and in an annex (book the former for original features such as beamed ceilings and wrought iron balconettes). The terrace provides stunning views over the harbour, there’s a fine dining intimate restaurant overlooking the plaza (all meals are served here) and an outdoor plunge pool to cool off in the Balearic heat.
Amàre Beach Hotel Ibiza
Those seeking an adult-only ambience can book a room at the latest venture from Amàre (the previous one was in Marbella). Sant Josep de sa Talaia is perched on the beach at Bou Cove, where guests have direct access to a dock. The hotel has an airy, contemporary and barefoot luxury feel, with rattan hanging chairs in bedrooms, spaces designed to take full advantage of the aquamarine backdrop and wicker-furnished, lantern-lit al fresco terraces with glass balustrades. Private yoga, DJ sessions by the infinity pool, menus by Michelin-star chef Mauricio Giovanini and a beach club are all part of the lifestyle here.
