anybody have any reviews on the Garbi hotel?
I stayed there a few years ago after it was refurbished. It’s very nice, clean and good value in the ibiza market imo. Loud music at the pool from 10am that does penetrate the double glazing so if you want quiet I suggest you get a mountain facing room (they are cheaper too). They are very hot on leaving on time. At 11.05am we had an unpleasant visit from security for not vacating at 11am, despite no prior warning (but I accept we were late).

A group of friends stayed there last weekend and said it was really nice.

Its nice, more upmarket and relaxed clientele than most hotels and in a good location. Good spa down in the basement with jaquzzi pools etc, only thing i'd mark it down for is not enough loungers by the pool, but you are right on the beach so that doesnt matter too much.

good to hear, thanks guys!

Looking forward to the spa and saunas to detox from the previous day's partying.

I didn't have a view option when booking but when checking in i'll ask for mountain as I rather sleep without music noise in the room.

I don't think the checkout will be a problem as my flight out is at 10 AM so I'll be getting in from resistance to pick up my bags only : )

It is a hell of a walk, we stayed near there last year and after doing the walk a couple of times my missus was demanding cabs or the boat! The water ferries are the way to go....very frequent and quite a nice way to start the evening.
Cheers mate. Hope you had a good time.

The 5-star fever has now also reached Formentera with the opening of the hotel Five Flowers last weekend.

It. Looks. Horrendous.
The only + I could give it would be the top floor pool with view, and you get the same at Sa Volta down the road! One of the pics in the gallery looks like someone's dropped huge piles of turd in the lounge for you to sit on. Or is it a starter??
Wouldn't pay 50e/nt to stay there, let alone 300+ for the cheapest room.
Mind you, it isn't for the likes of me; it's for those footballers who will spend their holiday hidden under Dr Dre's headphones, they're welcome to it.

Has anyone stayed in Ocean Drive Talamanca recently (the original one, by the taxi boats and the Corso)?

I am looking at October and there are some good deals there.

Stayed there years ago. The only down point was the trucks/buses traffic.
