    N/A, couldn’t fault.

    I absolutely loved all the staff members as they provided us with 10/10 service at all times. Each staff was fabulous in their own ways!! -The staff went the extra mile of providing us with a big fan due to being too warm in our room. - Mother Superior made my girlfriend a homemade birthday cake and a free bottle of bubbly. All staff sang happy birthday!! - The staff knew we was extremely tired when we arrived due to being awake early hours. Therefore, they got a room cleaned for us within an 1hr, instead of a 4hrs wait. Early, fab checkin!! - Breakfast was amazing in particular, couldn’t complain about the sizes or the taste. Amazing! - Great location! Quiet street, but a 5mins walk into the centre of all the party places and restaurants. Close to the sunset etc. -Beach towels provided if you decide a day at the beach. Overall, EXTREMELY impressed!! Would strongly advise anoyone to come here again. The hotel is greatly missed already!! Shania, Eden.

    Just returned home from a fantastic stay at this hotel. Gian Luca, Fran and the team were absolutely amazing! All so friendly they made us feel extremely welcome from the moment we walked through the door. Delicious fresh food and cocktails that are out of this world! All at a very reasonable price. We particularly liked the decor of the hotel, it has a very tranquil calming feel with exceptional cleanliness - the whole place is absolutely spotless. Great music played around the pool which we loved to listen to, my partner and I can’t wait to return to see Gian Luca (mother superior!) he makes this place special - we will never stay anywhere else in Ibiza.

    Nothing. There was literally nothinhg wrong with this hotel.

    This Hotel is absolutely perfect. The island of Ibiza is known as a 24 hour party place, and right in the middle of Sant Antoni is this oasis of calm, tranquillity and complete relaxation. Just a 5 minute walk from the iconic spots of Café Del Mar and Café Mambo, just up the hill with a clear view of the spectacular sunsets Ibiza is renowned for, literally on your doorstep. You have gated off street parking, a stunning pool, blissful chilled music to soothe away any aches and strains that you may have inflicted upon yourself during a night (or more) of partying Ibiza style, and wonderful clean well-appointed rooms. Even the basic rooms offer all that you would need for a calm relaxing stay. Should you wish to chose one of the better suites then you have a free mini bar, and a stunning glass walled shower with discreet decoration to hide your modesty (a little). The staff are truly professional, and will help you in any way they can. Breakfast is served from a very reasonable 9am al the way through to a proper clubbers 1pm so you can wake up and eat. Or come back from a long nights clubbing and Eat (Sleep, Rave, Repeat) as someone once said 😉 Although this is advertised as Gay only, they are very welcoming of non Gay couples. Don’t be surprised if you see some very nice art around too, although this had been changed on this visit for a special artists work. Absolutely love this place, and can’t imagine a better place to stay in the whole of Ibiza for it’s location, food, cocktails, peace, staff and ambiance. 2nd time we have been, and WILL be back again. Thankyou for such a wonderful stay. Regards Phil and Serena (Your Queen amd Princess)

    We love our stay at The Purple, all staffs were so nice, breakfast was great and good value for money around €15 for 2 people, drinks were the best only €5. We have been to so many hoteis in Ibiza for the past 10 years, this years was the first time we enjoyed hang out in the pool having drinks with friends. The hotel has a really nice vibe, with a good mix of guests. Jean Lucca the hotel manager is the kindest person we met, always happy and making you feel comfortable. We love our stay at The Purple!!

    The manger showed poor judgement abilities, and hence made the hotel very clicky, the rooms have been modernised, but have dated bathrooms, with shower curtains that miss the shower tray and flood a very slippy floor, also they only allowed one small bath mat to try to mop this up, also very noisy, and doors that need to be slammed to get them to shut, also got offered cheap entry into a club by quoting there number would get me in cheaper than anywhere else could, but this didn't work and hence paid the same but just a slower moving queue to enter the club. Also I read last years reviews that's looks like it was run by a different manager, so sadly I went a season too late.
