"I visited Ibiza for the first time this year and stayed at the palm beach. It was the best holiday I've ever had! The food was gorgeous (buffet style and loads of choices) the beach was right on the doorstep and so clean and beautiful. The pool at the hotel was lovely and big and the beach bar was brilliant, they were all so friendly. The reps were just fabulous and i loved them lots!! If anyone knows Xavi or Chipel, or met them email me to talk about them! they were just amazing. The musicals they performed each night were brilliant and the entertainment through the day was brilliant, the reps got everybody involved! there was golf, tennis, shuffle board, french bowls, archery. And cocktail games, where you do things to win cocktails. Like lilo wars, ice spitting and more! It's just wild and so much fun. There is loads for the little kids as well, from 3-12 there's the clubs. And 13+ can take part in a show, saturday night fever, it's really cool. The water park is nearby, you must go there. Ibiza Town is also nearby and that's a good day/night out. i HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND this holiday!!!!! you'll have fun!"

"I spent October half term with my husband, 2 daughters (6 & 3) and my mum and dad at Fiesta Palm Beach. We arrived at the hotel at 3am - reception staff were efficient and we were checked in no time! The hotel itself is excellent, fantastic pool (very cold!!) with a toddler pool that my youngest loved. The only problem was that they kept insisting on swim nappies despite the fact that my 3 year old has been potty trained for 18 months. If you have a baby/toddler in nappies take swim nappies with you!! Lots of sunbeds around the pool and plenty of shade too. The beach is beautiful and clean and right on the door step. The sea is shallow and ideal for kids however there were quite a few jelly fish by the end of the week. The green sunbeds belong the hotel and are free but there aren't many! The beach bar had a good selection of snacks and meals for lunch - yummy pizzas! The rooms were spacious and cleaned every day. We had two interconnecting family rooms which was very convenient. The airport is near by so the planes do fly over but it was absolutely no problem what so ever!! Food wise, breakfast was great - buffet style with a large selection. Dinner also of good quality and wide selection however if you are vegetarian you will be disappointed also limited choice for younger children (watch out if you are a vegetarian child)!! The restaurant area is clean but really really busy I would recommend sitting in a corner or even better outside in the smoking section (if not too many smokers!) for a quieter more relaxing dining experience. Evening entertainment most enjoyable - my 3 year old loved the mini disco and the 6 year old loved the shows. Good quality shows considering - all done in bar area which got really busy and due to the pillars where ever you sit your view is distorted. Thomson reps friendly but not over powering. We didn't go on any excursions, but the bus stop is just outside the hotel and really cheap - will take about 15minutes to go to Ibiza Town - lots of designer shops etc. All in all a fantastic time had by all - highly recommended!!"

"We returned yeasterday from the Fiesta palm Beach .
The hotel is very clean and comfortable. We had a room overlooking the beach with a balcony.
Don't be disappointed when you first arrive. It doesn't look much from the front. All the great bits are in the complex.
We played tennis every day. There are 5 courts in all.
There is volleyball on the beach 5 a side football and pool and tabletennis.
My son enjoyed the videogames area.
The Thomson reps are very caring and even though it was the last week of their season they were still really lovely.
The entertainment team are First Class. We saw them perform The Lion King, We will rock you. They put their heart and soul into it.
There is a great variety of lovely tasty food. The chefs cook it in front of you. Its all lovely and fresh.The restaurant is very well organised.
The pool is large and clean. The whole place is spotless.
All in All a First Class holiday."

Feast at the Fiesta
"The best thing about this hotel? The food. It was inclusive and was pretty good. You get two buffet style meals a day. The beach and pools were also very nice. The only problem I had was that there were no elevators, and my room was on the 4th floor. In addition, there was no one to take your bags so get ready for a workout. But hey, you'll probably need one after all the eating. Another note, although food is inclusive, drinks are not--not even water at dinner."

Excellent Hotel for Families
"Brilliant hotel for families
Good food (Buffet Style)
Lovely beach (Very close to the Hotel) Green Sun lounges belong to the hotel
Excellent evening entertainment
Close to the Airport approx 10-15 mins, planes fly close by but didn't find this to be a problem.
Approx 10-15mins walk to main night life, SPACE night club less than 10mins walk."

"I'm a 14 year old girl called Lauren who has been back 3 weeks now. Me and my family really enjoyed staying at the Fiesta Hotel Palm Beach. In the day i would go off and join in the games with my mates whilst my nan and grandad would join in with the adult games to try and win a Thomson t-shirt. My mum and dad enjoyed the fact that you could get out of the pool and walk straight onto the beach to sunbathe.
The food was brilliant. We went all inclusive so i was in the restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There was so much to choose from.
The fiesta staff were fantastic they work relly hard. They make guests feel so welcome and they work hard all day and then they do the shows at night, they really do deserve lots of credit for making my holiday enjoyable.
Alot of my friends are going back next year. I want to go back too so im gonna have to persuade my parents to go back again but that shouldnt be too hard as im sure there very keen on the idea of going back too."

"I'm 40 years old man separated and this year for the first time I attempted to spend a couple of weeks abroad alone with my young kids. My choice was for the Palm Beach Resort in Ibiza. I have to say that everything was great... even greater than every wildest expectation. Rooms are clean and large enough not to feel into a "box"... food was excellent and so it was the swimming pools. But what really made the difference was the animation team. We had great shows every night... and nice activities and games during the day. So a big thank you for Chiara and Anna from Italy who really helped me a lot with the kids and really made me some company. A big thank you also for Chipel who made me laugh to tears... and who is a terrific actor and entertainer and a big thank you for Roul... for his patience with my kids... I would recommend Palm Beach to eveyone who wants to spend a relaxing but also funny and interesting holiday. And by the way... "is this the way to Amarillo???" (that's the song we sang and danced every night!)"

loved the fiesta reps especially jumbo jenny
"My name is josie Im 14 and have been to the palm beach hotel for the last for years and this year it was amazing. The food was absaloutly to die for and there was something for everyone even the fussy eaters. I have only been back 3 days and want to back, The rooms are nice to there not posh or anything but there great for sleeping and getting changed in. Jumbo Jenny was the ultimate best rep she was such a good laugh and me and my cousin cried when we had to come back home. Jenny kept it lively and fun dureing the day for the teenagers and all the other reps kept it lively for everyone else so no-one got bored. The evening entertainment well thats another thing it was like watching proffesional shows and it was great watching jenny try to keep a straight face ( if you ever go you will realise she cant she always laughs or smiles) and the atmosphere was outstanding. Some of the shows were: mama mia
And loads more but i have to say my ultimate best was the we will rock you show kuky and jenny played good parts and chipel and xavy also did.
I think this hotel is a must i think all familys that are up for a good time and to get involved will have an outstanding time like me and my family have had and im literally sad to be home and keep wishing i was still in ibiza!!
dont miss out book to go this year and tell jumbo jenny we miss her."

"I went to the fiesta palm beach club with my mum and nanna (im 13) this was the best holiday i have ever been on, i have been to many places and i have to say this is definetly above average. The food was to die for it was absolutely fantastic, it was a buffet style so you could go up as much as you like (which was great!) the desserts were absolute heaven with lots of fruit, cakes,ice-cream, yoghurt, chocolate croissants! The breakfasts were delicious with fry ups and pancakes and lots more! The rooms were clean apart from the fact that we had quite a few ants but the people we met said they had not encountered any so it was probably just our room. The maids were on the go all the time i kind of felt sorry for them! The rooms were basic but they had a hair dryer and sattelite tv. when we arrived we got excellent service from a man named antonio he helped us with our bags and showed us around the hotel and our room. My favourite was the entertainment it was absolutely fantastic, there was all kinds of shows like moulin rouge, mamma mia, dirty dancing, and lots more but my favourite was the thomson rep show it was really funny. The pool is nice and very very clean but a bit crowded and loud so we stuck to the beach which was lovely and warm and had a lovely breeze the water was chrystal clear and it was great to swim in! it was lovely to have it right on our doorstep.the atmosphere in this hotel is lovely and the reps were absolutely phenomanal, i particularly liked lara and jason and the rest of the crew. i would definetly recommend everything about this hotel and resort with everything on your doorstep you have nothing to lose, i loved it so much that i have persuaded my mum to take me back next year!!!!!"

Wasn't good for me
"Well just a few things to say I stayed here when I was 14. With my parents the grandparents in the summer. Of 2005 July . We got to the hotel it was great first few days had a fantastic time played in the pool and on the beach . The weather was gorgeous really hot but after a few days I started to get really ill being sick couldn't hold anything down. Mum ad to call the local doctor he came out and said I had to go to hospital I had e-coli I didn't understand at that age but then I have told its food or water poisoning mean it wasn't cooked properly or water wasn't clean . I got to the hospital I got worse so they had to put me on machines cos the e-Coli had traveled to my kidneys and had to stay there for 2 month before I was aloud to go home to my local hospital. I recovered but I still have problems with my kidneys due to the lack of cleanliness of this hotel so just read reviews before u go like I always do before I go from now on.
Ps didn't have a problem with the hospital in Ibiza it was private due to insurance they did a fantastic job . Thank you x
