When I was invited to Ibiza a vision of chaotic clubs and all night parties entered my head. But in fact, after my three days on the island, my opinion of this sunny destination is completely changed. Ibiza is an idyllic and interesting place to visit, with white-washed villas, gastronomic restaurants and beautiful beaches.
My home for three days was Hostal La Torre, a basic but stylish hotel in the countryside of San Antonio.
Hostal La Torre has a quiet and easy-going charm about it. We spent lazy mornings lounging in the sun, and I also spotted bikes which guests can use around the island. The white arched walls were kept company by a range of tropical plants and flowers, and there are plenty of places to sit with a book or a cocktail.
The 17 rooms and suites are sheltered and spacious. We were lucky to be in Room 1, a junior suite with epic views of the endless Mediterranean sea. The room was simple and clean with a comfortable big bed and a pleasant living space. The bathroom was very small, but perfectly functional with a powerful shower and Campos de Ibiza toiletries for convenience.
A continental breakfast is served in the restaurant. We chose to eat outside, and had to battle a swarm of wasps each morning, but it was worth it for the panoramic views. The breakfast includes hot pastries, fresh fruit & yoghurt, granola, meats & cheese. The freshest orange juice and strong coffee is also included.
Anyone who knows Ibiza well will know Hostal La Torre for its incredible sunset views. The back of the hostel leads down to the sea and every evening locals and tourists gather on the decks to enjoy a drink or dinner while the sun slowly dissolves into the horizon.
