Thought I'd kick this off 😂😂

Dates you were there: 12th July - 16th July 2020

Where you stayed: Hostal Florencio

Club nights visited:

Best night:

Worst night:


Best bar: Kumharas

Best place to eat: Ibiza Rocks Bar (travelled with my 6 year old and he loves a chicken pitta and pancakes for breakfast so made life easy) for me, it could be several places! El Bistro was spot on for us adults.

Money spent: I dont know, somewhere between 400 - 600 euros

Biggest regret: Not forcing my child to get out of the pool and head to Sa Trinxa. (Sometimes you gotta pick those battles wisely) 😂

Going back?: Obvs.

Top tip: book your next trip online whilst you're there, then when you get back you're looking forward to the next one!

Very limited info there, we were on one if the first UK flights to Ibiza since the restrictions were lifted. It was a last minute cheap 4 nighter for a bit of Sun and a chilled out time. Had a fab time and we all very much enjoyed it. Met some fantastic people and just in general had a blast!

Dates you were there:
17 July - 24 July

Where you stayed:
St Agnes de Coroña (yes..of all places), for the sixt time in the same place. Feels like home.

Club nights visited:
Namaste in Las Dalias. I know..not really a club event, but a seated event, however there was some dancing so I thought I'd place it under this paragraph. Booked a table there, had some food and drinks and after a while Gaya Brisa started spinning, people just stood up and started cheering and dancing. Amazing energy and you could really tell everybody was having their first dance in months. Lasted for about 30-45 minutes. The crew from Las Dalias then asked the dj to put down the volume and making sure you were dancing at your own table. Met some local friends there we know from earlier trips and @FallenangelGparsons and Giselle. I can't describe the feeling and the vibe from that short moment, but for most people there it was actually kinda emotional I guess.

Best night(s):
Wednesday, because of Las Dalias. Thursday, amazing sunset on the rocks at Hostal La Torre and had some Hierbas after that with a friend at Can Tixedo.

Worst night:
There are no bad nights in Ibiza...however on Monday I felt kinda sad walking through San Antonio and seeing it was pretty much dead.
While some bars will try to make you believe there's partying in their bars...we checked some of them out while walking the promenade and it was all sitting down, low volume and really quiet. Only place that's really busy with a lot of drunken youngsters seemed to be Linekers.
Instagram-hotel Wiki Woo was lively too and there was a dj playing.

Best bar:
Can Tixedo. Also Bianca and Friends in Ibiza Town is nice for cocktails.

Best beach / beach club (thought I'd add this one):
Went to Cala Nova, Cala Jondal, Experimental Beach and Las Salinas this year.
Sa Trinxa is always fun and there was some nice music...but it was really crowded despite the current situation. Had an amazing day at Tropicana in Cala Jondal, great Paella, good Hierbas and fairly priced sunbeds.

Best place to eat:
La Paloma in Sant Lorenc. The best hummus (the one with lamb) in the world.
Second best is definitely Ses Boques in Es Cubbels.

Money spent:
Around 1300 Euros. It's a lot but we decided to enjoy the island to the fullest and not to look at prices when going out to eat or wanting to lay down on a sunbed and grab a drink.

Biggest regret:
Not going to Formentera. We thought this would be the year to do it...but when the day arrived we didn't really feel like traveling there. It was hot and we decided to do a day at the beach instead. Go with the flow...like I said in my longer review in another thread here. We will get there one time eventually.

Going back?:
Definitly. If my personal situation (job, income) stays the same and the virus and regulations do not get worse...we will go in September as planned. Everything has already been booked. If things change, we will have to push it forward to may / june 2021.

Top tip:
Go with the flow, do not make too many plans and make this year your Ibiza chill out and sightseeing holiday. Do not chase secret villa parties too much if you're not in the inner circle of the industry....you will not find them in WhatsApp groups or by asking people. We havent even tried to find them because we felt from day one this would be a totally different way of enjoying Ibiza. Off course there are some parties happening...but people are really careful because there have been people fined big time and audio equipment seized already. If you have the chance to grab a sneaky moment at one of the seated events...it will feel amazing cause everyone is just going wild on that same vibe.

Dates you were there: 24th to 27th july

Where you stayed: bahamas pdb. Ideal on the beach, cheap all inclusive for 3 nights, although was fairly busy

Club nights visited:

Best night: had a good friday night around ibiza town, few hours in tirapalla and then on the port. Had a bit of a to do in rock bar when they wouldn't bring me my change but then I couldn't remember how much I'd given them and they conveniently lost the bill haha. They reappeared with €15 after a bit.

Worst night:


Best bar: had a good do in all of them.

Best place to eat: had a beautiful grilled sea bass In varadero pdb and a good lunch at sa trinxa. Both good value

Best beach and/or beach club: sa trinxa

Money spent: circa €400 spends

Biggest regret: ever thinking about not going. Well worth the effort to get there

Going back?: of course

Top tip: avoid the GC at all costs this year. Young, bored, inexperienced cops, with little oversight and a quiet island is not a good formula

Dates you were there: 23th July - 5 aug 2020, 19th visit

Where you stayed: Hostal Sunset Ibiza+Adelino hostal

Club nights visited: Las Dalias Namaste 2 times, worth a visit in booking 4-5 days b4 in calling them and then call d day to confirm, Los suruba on sunday

Best night(s):
The rides in ibz with kicking music and with people that enjoy my music (i will dump those ones that didnt like it, as i want happy Dancing people in the car, hands in the air, and not tight square people 🙄)
With french couple ,dayly 1 hour last drinking after 2h00 when everything shut , in a dusty park around Benimussa, listening to music from the car


Worst night:
the day where my car get locked in private parking on left of Kumharas from 9pm to 7am?
the night where my car nearly get stuck in cala bonita , bushes with holes on ground,thinking only an helicopter can sort me out


Best bar:
Kumharas ,the music the vibes here are great.Menu 40€ worth along Namaste
Ibiza rock bar nice too with aircon and the dancing not stopped by staff such as in Plastik or Tantra (just stop dancing when staff is close to you)
Beach star hotel and Wiki woo were nice too

Best place to eat:
Es rebost de can prat/cafe cervantes menu del dia or Es pollastre for food to leave (San AN)

Money spent:
not a lot, less than what i earn a day :cool: so i can get back anytime without saying, Ibiza f***ing Isla del dinero ☝
Seeing people spreading 200€ on STK dinner and beeing picky without giving tips(1-2€) to waiter/waitress 🙄 , i should charge them more for the rides and not giving them some few rides too 😈

Biggest regret:
Not going to jockey club on friday afternoon for Rodspin as at night he didnt mix at sharmakanda because of technical issue
Not going to Itaca bar , Linekers, Ibz rocks hotel or jockey club to see my 2 friend on decks along different days (postponed for end sept)

Going back?: Sept 23rd, other events than the one ive already done (No Namaste No los suruba and No Franco moiraghi, his selection is same week after week and little cheezy too, Jon Sa trinxa, come BACK!!!) and seeing djs/friends on the decks
I heard wiki woo shut end august

Top tip: for bars, try to be inside otherwise no point to go (Plastik,Tantra, Enigma(free but sometimes they charge you 20€)), they keep inside room for people having a bottle service or their freinds, be smart to get inside...
Looks like those places are busy sunday and quiet on other days of the week
Bora bora terrace shut 9pm then bottle service inside 160€ 4 people, the sound is strong at bora bora (and staff dont annoy you for the non dancing as opposite to their board saying no Dancing) same in enigma (event i didnt went but reported by mates)

For sunset ashram cala conte, table is only for people having lunch/dinners
For el carmen book it Day -1 otherwise it will be full d day when u try to book
I spot 3 locations of private villa parties but if u are not bound to music industry or hot girl, forget about it!

Cala salada very busy, go there earlier, especially the weekend otherwise P will be already full around midday

finally spot the dusty parking in San an ,carrer alicante on right of panaderia , preventing us from driving and driving to find parking place to Es rebost , el bistro de stephan ,as i was used to used dusty parking place around fatsos, so lot of walk 800m+

The parking at Cala Bonita is terrible we nearly got stuck too. Excellent restaurant though with a DJ over Sunday lunch.
