Although all of Spain’s Balearic Islands are popular vacation spots, the island of Ibiza is arguably the most popular. This little island is not only famous for its beaches, but also for its thriving nightlife – which is actually a bigger draw for many people than the sun, sand, and surf combined. Europe’s budget airlines have frequent flights all spring and summer, and there are plenty of cheap hotels in Ibiza for you to stay in as well.
Even if you are on a serious budget, you may want to be a bit more selective about where you stay in Ibiza – especially if your hope is to sleep at night at all during your holiday. Because during the height of the busy travel season, many of the cheap hotels in Ibiza become the headquarters for lots of drunk party-goers who spend their nights club hopping and never quite get around to using their indoor voices. If you are going to be one of those people, go for it – but if you are hoping for a little peace and quiet here and there, then make sure your hotel is not known as the place to party.
In addition to the famous club scene, Ibiza is also great for anyone who likes the outdoors. There are, of course, the many beautiful beaches, and there are also water sports that can be enjoyed (including parasailing and boating). But beyond all of that there is also historic Ibiza Town, which is great for wandering and shopping, and be sure to find out whether your visit coincides with one of the festivals in Santa Eularia des Riu. Even if not, the town is worth a visit for its 15th century church.
A few of the cheap hotels in Ibiza worth looking into for your trip are Hotel Nautico Ebeso (600 meters from Figueretes city center, right on the beach, 123 rooms, most rooms with sea view, outdoor pool, children’s play area, on-site restaurant and bar, daily entertainment program), Hotel Orosol (in San Antonio, 59 rooms, 400 meters from beach, away from noisy areas, family hotel, WiFi available, on-site coffee shop & restaurant, laundry facilities), Hotel La Ventana (in Dalt Vila, short walk from city center & port, 13 rooms, on-site restaurant), Invisa Hotel Ereso (in Santa Eulalia des Riu, near Es Canar beach, 240 rooms, on-site restaurant & bar, laundry facilities, 2 swimming pools, internet access available, entertainment program, children’s play area), and Torre del Canonigo (in Dalt Vila, 8 rooms, airport transfer available, free breakfast, WiFi access available, room service, terrace on top floor).
