19 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
Wouldnt stay again!
"The reason we all stayed in here was because of others recommendations and reviews I saw on the internet, After 1 week here I will not be returning.
Pro's - Quiet complex in general, some music at the pool and large groups but nothing too hectic. Food & Drink was reasonably priced too. Short walk to Bora Bora and 10 mins to Space & Ushuaia.
Con's - Absoloutely filthy dirty rooms, our apartment was not cleaned at all during our stay. We did get however get towels maybe 3 times througout our stay but bed sheets were not changed, they were stained with brown makeup also. The cleaners also took my own personal towel that I had brought over.
There wasnt as much as a bar of soap in the bathroom, which I thought would come as standard to any apartment!
No Toaster or microwave either.
Definitely wont be returning, i'll spend my money elsewhere !!"

"Really lovely place to stay!
Literally around the corner from the airport, we paid about eight euro's in a taxi. The apartments are very spacious, with a separate bedroom. We also had two balcony's, one of which we could see Space ( club) from. Very short walk to the beach, five minutes to Bora Bora and same to shops and bars.
The pool area was very nice too, again spacious and not cramped together. Clean and looked like it had recently been decked.
As we went out most nights to all hours, the reception staff lock the sliding doors. So they have to let you in which was good. Just meant that there wasnt any weirdo's wondering around.
The staff were also friendly, the only bad thing I would have to say about these apartments is that the maid only came about twice, so had to go and ask for clean towels. Oh and the food wasnt that nice either that is served from the bar area downstairs.
If I went to Playa d'en Bossa again I would stay here and not in any of the other places we saw.

"this was our seventh time at the ebano and i really cannot understand what people are complaning about. yes the apartments are basic, but then again they are clean and spacious. let's face it you have decided to go self catering, so don't expect 5star luxury. the pool area is lovely with decking round the pool and plenty of shade. if you are going with small family then there is limited amenties for small children. but what keeps us returning year after year is the staff especially the bar staff who know treat us like friends. if you are looking for 5 star comfort then it's not for you , but if you want a home from home with staff who remember you from one year to the next then you really cannot do better than than the ebano. why else would they get such a high number of repeat trade"

"These apartments were perfect for me and 4 of my friends to stay in for a week self catering. We went end of July / beginning of June and found the guests were considerate with their music and noise levels. Quite a few families were staying there, couples and a few young crowds. The food was good when we ate there, nice cooked breakfasts and the waiters worked hard and were very pleasant. I couldnt fault the location, close to the airport and everything you could ask for. It seems a little obvious that planes are going to be going over but thats not just for this apartment..that is for the whole of Playa Den Bossa (including when you are in Space nightclub!) so I cant see how someone could fault the apartment regarding location. Everything went smoothly in the hotel and it was clean and fully air conditioned inside. I couldnt comment on the entertainment as we were not there for that. In the day all that seems to be going on is water polo and I didnt really like the guy who organised all this. I wouldnt take my son to this hotel as I dont feel there is enough entertainment for them nor a big enough kids pool. My advice would be to stay in the Ebano if youre a couple or on a girls / guys hol and you wont go wrong"

"After just browsing at the other reviews i felt i had to write mine. Sept 07 was the 4th time my family stayed at Ebano Apartments and it was just like coming home again. We have nothing but good things to say about Ebano. We did not go to the Welcome meeting as we felt we could have taken it ourselves, being there three tmes before!! The rooms are clean and tidy, maid service almost every day - changing beds, towels and cleaning - perfect. The waiters are most accommodating and friendly, nothing is too much for them, in fact they go the extra mile to please you. The fact that there are the same waiters in the restaurant and have been for the past 4 years says something in itself. Food is great and very reasonably priced. Entertainment every night - we were even coaxed into starring in a production of Grease which was absolutely hilarious!!! We love these apartments and would definitely go back again. In one review i read it says about drinking and getting drunk - sure that is everywhere - if you are into that sort of thing - we did not know Space nightclub was in Playa d'en Bossa until our second time there! Plenty of shops, restaurants and shops - it is just brilliant. Weather was brilliant and only 2 1/2 hours flight - excellent!!!"

had a good time
"First time at the ebano apartments, family of four, husband,wife,daughter and grandaughter. Accommodation was basic but clean,the staff were very friendly and helpfull. Jack the hotel entertainer was excellent, he looked after the children and adults, was always there to entertain. The apartments were ideal as a base, we hired a car for a few days and explored the island. We went to the ebano during the first week of october, the weather was beginning to change for the worse, we were lucky we had more sunny days than bad ones. There was a good variety of family entertainment most nights, which we all enjoyed and participated in. Regards to all, Alf & Jean (Anne Robinson look a like)."

"If you are at the Ebano and want to enjoy a clear view of trees, stay on the third floor as most rooms have a balcony that is surrounded by high trees.
Even though I complained that I could not even get a view of the pool, the bonus was a beautiful view of the aeroplanes passing over the apartments before landing.
To sleep on the beds it was just like sleeping on the floor as they were so hard and uncomfortable. There were no egg cups, no toaster but the consolation was a very helpful "PEPE" who would go out of his way to assist anyone.
This is my first and last visit to "THE EBANO" as I believe it to the worst holiday of my entire life. The rep was the same quality as the Polish receptionist who was of no help whatsoever and made promises that were not kept.
A TRAGIC HOLIDAY - That I never want again. "

Ok for a cheap deal
"We arrived at the apartments 3 hours later than expected and our room was not ready and then were informed by the staff in the restuarant that they never served food at that time (2pm). The lady on reception was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were better than I expected, clean and spacious. The bathroom was a bit naff but it did us for a week. What I did find is that all of the balconies face onto the pool area so if anyone is talking close by it feels like they are in the next room. Be aware that this is NOT a hotel purely for couples and families but for young same sex groups too. We found it quite noisy at times and also when our neighbours came in late, you could hear everything that they said. We are not old ourselves but when you are trying to have a siesta its a bit annoying. The pool area is nice but the pool is freezing cold.
Disappointed that we did not have clean towels every day or at least the bin emptied and do not expect to cook a gormet meal with the facilities....
Overall reasonably pleased for what we paid."

"The apartments are clean and the facilities good. The staff at reception and at the bar were very friendly, the same however could not be said of the holiday rep.
We didnât go to the welcome meeting so therefore did not get as much as a hello from her for the full week, very very poor as a holiday rep.
The entertainer was all right but had a very limited repertoire and his drag show that he went on about all week was very poor in comparison to others I have seen on the island, in fact the entertainment was very poor.
It is advertised as a family based hotel but there was far too many young ones making loads of noise at night and had no consideration for others.
In saying that some of the older clientele were just as bad. All in all would not recommend this place for families.
Playa den Bossa is filthy, nothing to do unless you want to drink and get drunk."

"Good daytime although a small pool so donât go when packed. Nightime a nightmare with groups of 18 to 20s, loud music and parties during the night. Also the planes are loud and non stop. Jack was great a good laugh .
The resort itself is ok, but could be a lot better for families and not the cheapest. We must recommend the Jeep Safari, Bob Marley was a great tour guide. Not great food but a good laugh.

"My friend and I took our kids on holiday on the very first week of the season here. The apartments were basic (but what can you ask for when you get a holiday so cheap?), but they were clean. We had a few teething problems like the maids left there lunch in our fridge and the my travel rep wasn't all that, but the hotel staff were brillant and tried there best to sort out any problems which were to be expected on the opening week. The bar staff were fantastic and really friendly. The food was the nicest we could find, and Jack the entertainer was fantastic!! Everyone from kids to adults loved him. He brought the place to life. Thanks Jack for making our holiday 1 in a million."
