girls ey? what would we do without them...?.when we went to cova santa my wife was feeling weak so i had to get her a burger from that bbq stall, after the burger and some cava she was fine, anyway very interesting review and good to read you still had fun and she was fine!Below is our review of our second trip to Ibiza this year as a couple.
Dates you were there: 2nd to the 6th of October
Where you stayed: Migjorn Ibiza Suites & Spa in PDB
I was looking at staying here in August last year but if memory serves me right it was about £1000 for 4 nights which was too much. 4 nights on these dates was on £550 which I think was good value.
The apartment was huge and on 3 levels, kitchen downstairs, living area in the middle and bedroom on the top. The pool / bar area was great with good music throughout the day and loads of beautiful people. I only find females attractive but the girlfriend made no attempt to hide her satisfaction at the male eye candy about
Club nights visited
Friday the 4th Solomun + New Jackson LIVE @ Destino
I took the advice someone posted on here about booking a meal at Destino (min spend €100) to get free entry to the event.
The food was tasty, the portions were small but that was exactly what we needed at the time.
After the meal we joined the party. We were both fired up for it having been looking forward to it for months and it being first night out since arriving.
I was not particularly impressed with New Jackson or the DJ before him but Solomun was amazing. He had us both jumping about like a couple of nutjobs.
We drank far too much (could not believe it when I checked my statement when home) and on at least a couple of occasions my girlfriend exclaimed “This is the best night of my life”
We also briefly spoke to the @FallenangelGparsons and his friends but all I can remember is trying his ginger.
Somehow a couple of French guys from Paris ended up sharing a taxi back to PDB with us. I’m not sure how this happened as we were not speaking to them in the taxi queue.
I can only remember one conversation we had
Me: I’ve never been to Paris
French guy: You should come
Me: Is there any good clubs?
French guy: No good clubs and the people are rude but you should still come.
He did not exactly sell it but I might visit one day.
Friday the 4th Dixon presents Transmoderna Closing Party
After Destino we went back to the hotel, freshened up and headed to Pacha.
Not much to say really, the music was good from what I can remember but by this point we were too wasted to enjoy it.
I held out until the 3rd time my girlfriend said she wanted to leave then it was back to the hotel. We were only there for about 1 hour which was a shame.
Saturday the 5th Amnesia Closing Party (nearly…..)
We woke up buzzing after having such a good night at Destino the day before and spent the afternoon drinking and reminiscing.
It was not until late on in the day (about 5pm) we had our first and only thing to eat that day. Afterwards we went to sleep for a bit and woke about midnight and started to get ready to go out.
It all went downhill when standing in the queue waiting to get into Amnesia. My girlfriend says to me “I don’t feel well” and 10 seconds later she passes out/faints. Luckily, she fell into me and I laid her on the ground.
Security saw her go down and went off to alert the welfare team. She was only on the deck for a couple of minutes then was able to stand and walk away from the queue. The security guy who helped her noticed she had dropped her ticket when falling and when handing it back to her said “You can come in when you feel better” which I thought was nice.
By this time the lady from welfare arrived with a wheelchair! I will never forget the look on my girlfriend face as she was being wheeled away, it was a look of WTF is going on!
We spent the next 20 mins in the welfare tent, her pulse and blood pressure were taken, she was given some water and told she is fine.
It’s not something that has ever happened before and we are putting it down to not enough food and probably dehydration.
We then had the decision to make, do we go in or back to the hotel. My girlfriend was pretty shaken by what happened and was worried it could happen again so back to the hotel it was (which was fair enough)
So, while I cannot review the Amnesia closing I can say the welfare team were very nice.
Back at the hotel my girlfriend says “I think it might be time to hang up my raving shoes”.
What a difference a day makes she went from having the time of her life to quitting for good.
Best night: Destino
Worst night: Amnesia…..
Best bar: We did most of our drinking at the hotel bar and just popped into where ever was closest for a pint when out and about.
Best place to eat: The food at Destino was good. We ate at a few restaurants near the hotel and they were all decent (and very quiet due to the time of year)
Money spent: Hotel and flights was about £800, spent about £1000
Biggest regret: Kicking the arse out of it too much which resulted in the Amnesia incident.
Going back?: Of course we are, them raving shoes are not ready to be put away for good!
Top tip: Eat more than 1 meal a day and stay hydrated….
