"Me and my 3 friends have just came back on Friday July 6th 2012, and we're already planning on going back again next year, the staff were awesome, 2 in-particular (2 of the bar staff, Alix and can't remember the other name) were fantastic to us, had a great time, shame we were only there just a week, I'd recommend it to anyone!"

Sad to be home
"Well, Just got back from a fantastic holiday.... Sadly it was only for a week. Been to this hotel a few times now. It is a fantastic hotel, staff are really friendly and helpful. The hotel is very clean and the pools are lovely after baking in the sun all day. The food is excellent and the bar is brilliant. The kids had the computers to update Facebook like they do. We were a party of 10 aging from 16 to 42, there was plenty to do for all ages in the resort. The Florida Park is straight opposite the hotel with trampolines, pool tables and the bull. I found the cocktails and beer was reasonable priced, and only a stag back across the road to our appartment. Thank You to all at Blue Star, See you next year. Debbie Howland"

Great hotel, plenty nearby, great atmosphere
"Stayed here middle of june for a girly holiday. Rooms were clean and spacious. There were two rooms with two double beds which could be seperated if need be and a large sofa which could be slept on if needed. Bathroom was nice to. The pools were small but there were two and a kiddy pool. Always beds free as nobody seemed to stay at the pool. Internet in the lobby and snack bar. The road the hotel was located on only had only a small run of pubs but all were lively and friendly, loads of shops and markets and plenty of places to eat. The resturant at the top of the road to the right is really nice, sorry cant remember the name and the latenight snack bar over the road does great kebab wraps. The boat was only about a five min walk to go to the town. We only did this once as it was very expensive in san antonio. We hardly spent any money where we were, meals were reasonable and we bought jugs of cocktails which were very generous measures. Definintely the place to go if you want to party on a smaller scale but without all the idiots. Check out millenium bar, we had a wicked night in there. Everyone is so friendly. The beach is nice but not very big, make sure you take your own drinks as the beach bar is rediculasly expensive. Would go there again definitely"

"I stayed in these apartments on a stag doo at the end of may, The staff were great, The pools were clean, The beach is only 2 mins walk away as is the taxi boat over to San Antonio.
It is what it is, Its not a 5 star hotel,the rooms are basic but are always clean and comfy.
Really enjoyed our trip were all heading back next year again.

"My financee and I stayed in these apratments in mid september. Before going on holiday I was a bit dubious after reading some of the reviews about these apartments as they were very mixed, but now I can write my own review. Apon arriving at the apartments we were met with a vey clean and well presented reception area. Our rooms were not ready when we first arrived but we were able to put our luggage in a locked room while we took a stoll to find our bearings and see what san an bay had to offer. Everything was great a very clean resort with plenty of bars and shops and lots to do. The ferry over to san an was great way off getting over to the town.
All in all the holiday was great, our apartments were clean, tidy and well equiped for the 2 off us. The staff was very friendly and willing to answer any questions even if they were not to do with the apartments.
Ibiza itself is a gorgeous island, well kept and plenty to do not just a party island as its renowned for. Would definately recommend Ibiza to anyone and the Blue Star apartments were great value for the money we paid for this holiday."

"Me, my Boyfriend, Sister and her boyfriend (21,23,19,23 yrs old) went to ibiza the last week in may saying at blue star. hotel staff where very friendly and helpful. for what we paid it was well worth it. because the hotel was not in the centre of san antonio there wasnt any noise and there was still plenty of things to do near by and was easy to get to san antonio by ferry. most days we just walked- about 2 miles each way. the only issues we had was bed sheets smelling damp.otherwise throughly enjoyed stay"

"Our first holiday abroad all together was FANTASTIC! The hotel was perfectly situated close to shops and bars. It was clean and well organised. We were made very welcome. We ate in the hotel most days as the food was inexpensive and good quality. We relaxed in the day whilst the younger guests slept of their partying. Some miserable guest moaned about noise but it was only clubbers coming home and for a few minutes.
We took the ferry to town and watched the sun set... We loved it...Our perfect moment. "

"Stayed at this hotel by default really , me and my friends booked to stay at another hotel (Piscis Park) but then came on trip advisor and it worried us about how bad it was so we cancelled it and booked the blue star.
This hotel for us was Fabulous, we had the biggest room right at the front with a double balcony - i wasn't really bothered that we were facing the road it was fun to nosey at people when they walked past!.
The staff were brilliant our room was cleaned almost everyday the bathroom was absolutely immaculate and it was massive!
Really can't fault anything about this place, its really basic and clean. Would go back tomorrow."

"The apartments were clean with adequate facilities. Reception staff were helpful. We asked to move to a quieter room because I was having trouble sleeping and we were moved the next morning.
Pool area was large, there were 2 large pools and a childrenâs splash pool. There were plenty of loungers, a pool table, and table tennis table and bar and eating area. In the inside bar area there was another pool table, a seating area and TV. All areas were kept clean. The bar wasn't expensive and the food was good. We would go back.
There was no best priced supermarket, the one with the cheapest beer was expensive for bread, and the one with cheap bread had slightly more expensive beer. It does pay to shop around.
The best beach we found was Port Des Torrent. You can catch a bus or its a 10 minute walk. There are a few restaurants and the watersports are the cheapest we saw.
If you are looking for a good Chinese meal then despite what it says in the JMC book DO NOT go to GRAN CHINA.
Taj Mahal does a good curry and is part of a complex of 4 restaurants, you can sit in any you wish and order from any of the others, handy if you all want different things.
The Chinese and the Pizzeria looked and smelt good too. The fourth restaurant served international food. We were sat too far away to see the food.
Jackie Browns does nice food in a nice atmosphere, tables are in a tree lined courtyard. Priced was good too. three courses for 10.95 euro.
Even if you haven't tried Thai food I recommend you visit the Thai restaurant near to Jackie Browns (might be called Muay Thai), starter, main, sweet and a drink for 10.50 euro. The special menu is limited but good. There's a full menu too. Lager is 1.75 for a half.
In San Antonio go to Tex Mex Cantina if you like Mexican.
If you fancy going diving we went with Seahorse diving based at Port Des Torrent beach. You and book it there or in San Antonio.
Definitely head to sunset strip in evening and have a nice relaxing drink watching the sunset."

"Me and three friends stayed at the apartments in sept 07. The staff are very helpfull and the apartments very clean a maid cleaned ours six times during our one week stay.The apartments are in San Antonio bay but a ferry runs every half hour across to San Antonio and only costs 2 euro but the ferry service ends at midnight so after that time you have to use taxis and like any busy resort it may take a while to get one.On the whole the stay at the Blue Star Apartments was well worth the money."

don't stay here!!!!!!!!!!!
"Me and 5 friends stayed at this apartment. We met some real nice girls from newcastle. Don't get me wrong, i had a great time no thanks to the hotel. We met 24 girls from newcastle to go with our 6 boys so a total of 30 teenagers. On the last day of our stay, an incident happened without our involvement however the 6 boys got blamed with no evidence.
There were a couple of girls sleeping in their room at about 7am also on their last day, hours before our coach was due to arrive, when we heard a bang from above. The girls ran to our room to tell us the problem. A drunken man had broke the lock on their door, while also damaging another door. The manageress told us we had to pay 1000â¬ or else we were going to miss our flights. We wanted to see evidence we done wrong but there was none. They told us there were cameras but they were not used. Problems worsened when the police arrived, obviously they took the side of the hotel. A girl had seen this man who damaged the doors, however they did not listen. In the end we paid the money, many people we have told believe it could have been set up. Teenagers, last day, no money left.
So if you still want to go ibiza, then go. But please don't stop here if you don't want any trouble.

Really Nice apartments
"We got our apartments as a late deal so didnt think the apartments would be brilliant.
However we were very suprised! It got off to a pretty bad start when out flight was delayed 6 hours!!!
The 1 bed apartments are huge and we had a massve balcony and terrace, huge bedroom with fitted wardrobes and also a lovely bathroom. It was all very clean and comfortable.
The Beach was only 5 mins away but wasn't the best and sunbeds were quite cheap, however me and my partner went on day trips and things.
We'd highly reccomend Ibiza Town at Night and the Hippy Market on a Wednesday but don't go with the tour operators they charge loads when u can get it half price on your own!!
So to conclude the apartments are well worth it as is Ibiza!!
