This is a fun hotel if you are up for a good party. The pool is social and has good live music. I think staying here one or two nights is plenty or you will be all partied out. Service is good, hotel is clean, restaurant food is good and drinks are strong.

We went to the Friday night party with Apak and Wednesday with Stafford Bros. After years of partying in Ibiza we found it to be ok however the music, drumming and way the speakers are set out makes the sound disjointed unless you are sat directly in front of the DJ stand. That drummer drove me crazy!! If you're sat...
