Best Hotels in San Antonio, Ibiza
Cami De Sa Vorera
Harkening back to the more hedonistic days of San Antonio, Pikes Ibiza is a true showcase of the history that gave the island its reputation. And for those in the know (which now includes you), this spot’s reputation precedes it.
Nestled in the hills overlooking San An, Pikes is a rock and roll institution through and through, with the likes of Grace Jones and Bon Jovi having spent time here. This means an eclectic mix of randomness and vivid creativity visible throughout.
With just 25 rooms ranging from double to junior suites and the coveted Tony’s Room, a poolside suite pays homage to the original hotel owner. While the on-site restaurant, Room 39, boastfully shows off the best in British classics.
Agroturismo Sa Talaia
Hidden high in the hills above San Antonio, Agroturismo Sa Talaia offers the ideal spot for some time away from the buzzing atmosphere of Ibiza.
Long before this standout boutique retreat put on its current facade, it was a family summer home, and thanks to this, today, it maintains a homely-meets-regal look. You’ll find exteriors boasting statement sculptures and pine trees, creating quite the luxurious bubble to lose yourself in.
Courtesy of its heritage, here you’ll have a pick from just 12 rooms and suites, each paired with either a private terrace or patio. Inside, an equally luxurious theme dominates with an opulent colour scheme, statement walls, and ornate furnishings.
San Antonio Bay
Sitting in the San Antonio Bay area, Las Mimosas is a stylish and quintessential Ibizan property on the quieter side of San Antonio. Blending an almost hidden off-the-beaten-path feel with coastal charm, it’ll steal your heart in less than a minute.
For a minute, you could fall into thinking this property is a speciality-designed entry, but its origins dictate a different story. It began life as an apartment block, but visually, with its L-shape and chic pool/lounge area, it’s a hotel through and through.
Even though it isn’t a new entry in the Ibiza accommodation landscape, it does give off a fresh atmosphere, aside from the finca-inspired walls you’ll see in some suites. The star of the show? On-site Mimo’s restaurant serves up the best pizza in town.
Carretera de Cala Gracio
Evoking the essence of a hot, tropical night in Havana, the Cuban-inspired Cubanito Ibiza is everything you’d expect of a San Antonio hotel and then some. It’s a spot that’s unabashedly upbeat and vibrant, begging the question, what more could you want?
Regardless of expectations, Cubanito thrashes any, especially with its rooftop bar providing what could arguably be the best sunset spot in Ibiza. Styling comes in a mish-mash of colonial and Art Deco, with the mint-hued and chessboard-tiled exterior cinching the Havana theme.
Some uniformity reigns in elements such as salmon-coloured walls throughout, but considering the always-summer look it’s going for, there’s never too much of anything.
Amáre Ibiza Beach Hotel
San Antonio Bay
Gentrification is not always good and often feels more forced than anything else, but this is definitely not the case at the Amáre Ibiza Beach Hotel. I’d go as far as to say this adults-only extravagance fits the bill for a proper Ibizan hotel.
Leaving the old where it belongs, the Amáre offers a refreshingly lively appeal that’s unpretentious. The entire property is white, bright, and shiny as an imitation of a blank canvas while floor-to-ceiling doors and windows blur the line between interior and exterior.
This retreat destination offers numerous chill-out areas, with three distinct ones dominating: the rooftop, pool, and beach. Each provides a unique vibe to compliment the eight categories its 366 rooms come divided into.
It would be an injustice if the fairly new boutique OKU Ibiza did not feature as one of the best luxury hotels in San Antonio, Ibiza. That doesn’t gain it automatic entry, though, but its take on laidback opulence certainly does.
Its natural wood and stone, Japanese-influenced delivery of what it calls “bohemian minimalism”, is a masterclass on how to stand out without any effort. If the almost neutral exterior is anything to go by, the bliss-inducing interiors in shades of brown heighten the appeal.
While wellness treatments and yoga classes highlight each day at OKU, with accompanying DJ sets, at nighttime, signature cocktails from its bar bring an authentic Ibizan experience.
If you ever need proof of Ibiza’s love for an all-night (and day) party, a stay at the aptly named Ibiza Rocks Hotel is solid evidence. Famous for its pool parties where the likes of Craig David, Becky Hill, and Fatboy Slim headline, it’s a rager in all the best ways.
Attracting a younger crowd, for obvious reasons, the ideology isn’t one of rest, and while that can sound a bit too much, this is Ibiza. There’s always something going on from the lobby to the lounge and the infamous pool, so if you’re not too keen on losing sleep, this might be one to skip.
The beauty is that Ibiza Rocks doesn’t pretend to be something it’s not; sticking to the unspoken Ibizan vibe guide makes it a worthy spot, nonetheless.
Hostal La Torre
Carretera Cap Negret
Whereas other properties define what the future of Ibiza might hold, some maintain the authentic Balearic spirit the White Isle is famous for. And few do it as well as the always in-demand hotspot of Hostal La Torre.
From its perch atop a hill overlooking the Mediterranean, La Torre showcases one of the best patches to catch the sunset. But this simple venue does much more. Its charm lies within its simplicity, devoid of pretence, and with a focus on food, fun, and carefree abandon.
With only 17 rooms that boast seafaring chic, the views from the hillside terraces, and side views of the ocean, are showstopping. You can’t talk about La Torre without mentioning its on-site restaurant, a local culinary landmark.
Can Vistabella Boutique Resort
Camino de Benimussa
Is Ibiza a world-famous party destination? Yes. Could Ibiza be a prime setting for some secluded relaxation? Also yes. And that’s where the Can Vistaballe Boutique Resort comes in swinging knockout blows.
Starting with its regal perch atop a hill overlooking Portmany Bay, there’s an unmistakable air of throwing your cares to the wind. Continuing that theme, you’ll spend days here settling in for wellness treatments, yoga sessions, and plenty of sunbathing under the Spanish sun.
The rustic design and build of Can Vistabella adds to its aim of affordable unwinding, and you’ll find rooms and suites benefitting from the peaceful natural landscapes surrounding the property.
Launched in 2018, few properties in Ibiza boastfully show off the new direction of the island’s accommodation choices quite like Wi-Ki-Woo Ibiza. If you’ve ever wanted to live inside an Instagram filter, this pink-hued property is the one for you.
Visually it is captivating in its delivery of aesthetics, which is why it’s one of the most sought-after overnight spots around. The crowd at the hotel also showcases this, and it’s clear that styling and design went into making it an instant hit with social media influencers.
Oddly enough, it’s quite retro with elements such as colour-blocked pairings in shades of pink and green, with an unmistakable vintage feel to its pool and lounge areas.
Palladium Hotel Palmyra
Avenida Dr Fleming
With its premier beachfront locale and taking full advantage of that fact, the popular Palladium Hotel Palmyra is a no-brainer for overnight stays in San Antonio. What more could you need in paradise, with the beach a mere 10 to 15 steps from the pool area?
Surrounding the Palmyra are many other San An staple properties, but this entry from the Palladium group is not just a standout but an opulent and always in-demand one.
Exteriors and interiors scream quintessential Ibiza in optic whites and exposed wood trimmings. With a stellar approach to staff service and the buzzing Es Paradis Nightclub right next door, there’s not much else to want.
THB Naeco Ibiza Class
San Antonio Bay
There’s no denying that Ibiza is a paradise playground for the young (and young at heart), and as proof of this, look no further than THB Naeco Ibiza Class. It’s a stroke of genius that takes pointers from the island’s heritage and offers it to a new, fresh, and youthful audience.
From the outside, THB Naeco seems like a cross between an apartment block and a modern art museum, thanks to its angular balconies and dazzling optic white facade. It’s crisp, clean, and cohesive.
Whereas its exterior might seem conformist, communal space and room interiors, with modern furnishings and vibrant murals, do the opposite. These give off a definite contemporary design and feel that fits its adults-only classification.
Typic Marina Playa
A fan favourite right in the heart of San An, the Typic Marina Playa is a lowkey, laidback affair giving it a surprising yet instantly-at-home feel. Nesting itself into the adults-only category with its seat at the bosom of the bay area, it’s an ideal vacation spot.
Interiors blend contemporary modernism with a Mediterranean flair which verges on almost cliche but never falls into it.
Expect to find nightly live DJ sets (this is Ibiza, after all) and delicious cocktails that rarely stop coming from its popular bar. Special mention goes to its poolside lounge area, where the sunset is clearly the winning element.
Sa Clau by Mambo
You’ll find all sorts when scouting the San Antonio Ibiza hotel landscape, so much, in fact, that it is possible to imagine that a subdued option doesn’t even exist. Yet, Sa Clau by Mambo on the frontline of San Antonio Bay is precisely that.
With a fine blend of Scandinavian chic and easygoing flair, this standout strays from the norm of other more boho, shabby-chic properties.
Considering its location, there are only 29 rooms, with those at the front showcasing unparalleled sunset views. Keeping with the relaxed atmosphere, room interiors aren’t flashy, but the styling comes in a smart way (think small plants and minimalist artwork) that just works.
The Purple Hotel
Carrer D’antoni Riquer
Opening the doors to Ibiza’s ever-expanding visitor spectrum, the LGBTQIA+ Purple Hotel is sheer vibrancy come to life. Thanks to its contemporary styling and courageous use of design elements, there’s an almost implied need to want to stay or party here.
Splashes of the pride flag, with bursts of purple, green, yellow, and red visible throughout its lobby and 28 rooms, highlight the always-buzzing atmosphere.
Even though it comes at you in abundance, the elegance of the property and its level of service and quality amenities guarantee a memorable (and unique) staying experience.
There’s no rulebook for what a San Antonio Ibiza hotel should be, and the Orosol Ibiza is the perfect example. Although a longtime part of the landscape, this family-run staple of central San An presents a modernised, convenient, and comfortable resting space.
As far as location goes, it does what others wish they could, courtesy of its proximity to the best of San Antonio’s beaches, nightlife, and island exploration opportunities.
Offering 59 spacious rooms, each with a glorious private balcony, features tones of apricot, white, rust, and brown that flag its venture into modern chic. However, the scene-stealers are its top-floor superior suites that boast terraces with views of the Mediterranean second to none.
TRS Ibiza Hotel
Carretera Cala Gració
Sometimes a hotel ticks every possible box, and you don’t expect anything less when you’re in Ibiza. That’s why the luxurious, adults-only retreat of TRS Ibiza should top your list of possible home-away-from-home hotspots.
Offering a contemporary-meets-classic Ibizan vibe in both style, decor, and service, this all-inclusive hotel in San Antonio, Ibiza, has no equal. It aims to be the best and delivers, with every room and suite ensuring you have an opulent breakaway.
Three on-site restaurants, four outdoor swimming pools, the world-famous Zentropia Spa… I could go on, but I think you get the point.
