Hi, We stayed here last September.Good place!Massive pool! It's quite a long way from San An town though. U gotta rely on the buses (which are ok) or taxis if u're about at night. Buses stop running about 11pm.
Have fun! Ann-Mari
I stayed at the Bellamar last year and will be staying again this year from Sat 7th Aug. Its gorgeous spotlessly clean, beautiful big rooms, air conditioning, great location, best hotel i have ever stayed in Ibiza and t've been going for 7 years. Let me know if you want anymore info
Me and MrsW stayed in the Bellamar in Jun/Jul and it is excellent.
The pool is lovely and theres a nice decking area for sunbathing with comfy sunbeds too. Only slight criticism here is that you get the little bar down on street level playing the most dire music all day long which can be heard all too clearly round by the pool - easily solved with the use of an i-pod/walkman
The hotel staff are friendly and efficient and speak good English (bloke on the desk called Jose I actually think is English as is particularly London sounding to me).
The decor of the hotel is very nice and the air conditioned lobby area is a welcome relief when coming in from a hot car! Our room was a superior room facing the sea and on a high floor which meant we got an excellent sunset view so no need to go to the strip if you cant be bothered.
The bathroom was large, entirely tiled with what looked like sealed limestone - very taseteful. Water pressure in this hotel is also good which is not true of all establishments. Some hotels I have stayed in its been like showering under a leaky tap but the Bellamar was very satisfactory which is important when removing beach sand!
The jacuzzi bath I didnt use, but it looked to be new and quite large (you might get 2 people in it if you aint too big).
All the corridors are carpeted, which means that you dont have to listen to every person clopping down the halls all night long. The doors on the rooms are also softly sprung too so you dont get woken in the middle of the night by careless drunks letting their doors slam shut either.
Rooms do have fridges but ours was fairly useless and i think you are meant to get a key to open them but ours opened easily. No matter as there is a small supermarket next to the hotel which sells cold drinks etc.
The rooms are air conditioned but the electrics (including air con) in every room only work when the key card is inserted into a slot just inside the door. This means the rooms - especially those facing the sea are very hot when you get in from the afternoon. You will be well advised to keep the curtains closed also when using the air con also as it isnt that powerful and the sun through the window will overpower any benefits gained. The air con will also turn off if the patio door is opened.
I found that it was an easy walk into San An if taken fairly leisurely and never got a cab or bus from the hotel when going out at night. Did get a couple on the way back though - largely bought on by bouts of lazyness induced by alcohol intake. I have stayed at the Monterrey and still walked in so I think I must just like walking.
I didnt try the food, as was never up for breakfast and was only on a B&B basis but have heard that it was quite adequate.
the bellamar is just at the end of the promenade so it tkes me a brisk 10 min walk to the west end or 5 min walk to the main bars in the bay and the mei ling restaurant and amsterdam restaurant complex...dont forget to drop in the pink panther and say hi to me xx sue
