3 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
We are just back from a 12 night stay at...
"We are just back from a 12 night stay at the Atlas Apartments in a quieter part of Santa Eulalia called Siesta. We read lots of reviews before deciding to book through lowcostbeds.com and booked seperate ingoing and outgoing flights to keep costs down.
Santa Eulalia is about 30 mins away from the airport in a taxi (approx 25 Euros 1 way). The apartments are at the bottom of a quiet road next to the back entrance of a large hotel The Don Carlos. The complex consists of 17 apts set around a medium sized pool which has a baby section and quite a deep swimming section. Our 8 yr old could safely be left to play at the pool while we were in the apt as all the apts are situated so closely around it. Our 2 yr old could safely walk and play in the baby section with supervision.
As you enter the apt from the main door you walk into an open plan living area with kitchenette adaquitely stocked with all essentials including matches to light the cooker and oven. There is a good size fridge and plenty of cups, pots an pans etc. The living area itself is very basic and could do with a coat of fresh paint and new material on the seating but once all our bits and bobs were unpacked it looked fine. There was a large dining table with plenty of seating and a large coffee table in the lounge area. There was also a toilet and wash hand basin downstairs. The patio doors opened from the lounge area onto a small patio with table and chairs and looked out towards the pool area and sunloungers.
On your left as you walk into the apt from the main door are tiled concrete stairs leading to the bedrooms. These could become quite slippy if you werent totally dry before going up them. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs and a large bathroom with bath and shower. The double room looks out to the pool and has a balcony with clothes dryer which ws a godsend! The smaller room has twin beds and in our case a good sized wooden cot which still left plenty of space. Both rooms have loads of wardrobe and drawer space with plenty of hangers inside. The bedding and towels were changed 3 times a week and the maid cleaned the pool area every morning so was always spotless. We never had any problem with ants etc at all.
Now onto the surrounding area, you could either walk to the right of the entrance to the end of the road and down a lovely path to reach the river area or turn left and walk down a busier road to reach the river area. We read varying reviews about this river area but we found it clean and a nice feature having to cross over the large bridge to get to the beginning of the promenade. You can walk the length of the prom which took us a leisurely 30 mins to the harbour area where you can view the yachts and boats. All along the prom are plenty of bars and eating places which are all child friendly and most cater for all tastes. We went to Mels Place which was staffed by British people and catered greatly for small children. The food was always lovely and reasonably priced. There is also a KFC and Pizza hut for the kids. As you cross the bridge you come to Mariners bar which was great for entertainment and drinks at night with a play area for the kids.
The beaches were all clean but the main beach doesn't have sunbeds or umbrellas so we took our own umbrella but every shop on the front sells them. The water was lovely though some days there was quite a bit of seaweed floating around. The smaller beach es had sunbeds which cost 3.50 euros and the same for umbrellas. We went in middle of July but could always get a bed. We took a boat trip to Es Cana just round the bay which was good. It only took about 25 mins and was a nice beach tho much busier with pedalos etc. Another trip was a visit to Ibiza Town at night which was entertaining seeing all sorts from multi million pound yachts to tacky tranvestites! We also took 2 buses to get to the aqua park in Playa d'en bossa which our kids enjoyed although we took a taxi back as i had to stand with a sleeping 2 yr old in my arms for 20 mins on the bus as nobody would give up their seat! If you are using the local buses you have to pay for your ticket at a kiosk before getting on so allow time for this. The buses are cheap and frequent but always busy. There are plenty of supermarkets near the apts ranging in expense but we mainly used spar and also found a super wee british shop in the centre of Santa Eulalia called The white island corner shop which stocked everything you could need.
Overall we had a great holiday although things werent cheap especially drinks (alcoholic and soft) but the apts were great for us and the owner Rene couldn't have been more helpful. He even has beach umbrellas, buckets and spades lilos etc in the reception area for anyone to use. The only down point is that he only comes to the apts in the morning so if you want to see him you must be around in the mornings but he can be contacted by phone at any time. We would def go back to these apts and area of Ibiza in the future.

These apartments have so much potential...
"These apartments have so much potential if only the interiors were updated, the decor was very 1980's and very, very basic, the kitchen cupboard doors were hanging of and the fridge was dented and was rusty.
If the apartments were brought up to date I think they would be great, especially for families as the pool is clean and really close to the apartments so you can keep a close eye on the kids, the exterior of the apartments were very clean and tidy, the cleaner was out every morning sweeping and tidying the outside area.
The apartments are in a great position as they are close to the beach and local amenities. "

Excellent resort for a good family holid...
"Excellent resort for a good family holiday. The Atlas apartments are very basic but perfectly adequate to sleep and wash in. Places to go to eat Daffers (superb) and La Paella in Siesta. Do not go to Mariners or Mels on the promenade. Home made chicken and mushroom pie was a FROZEN Hollands pie (rip off).
Places to drink Queen Vic , the Scottish guy who runs it can be insulting but he doesn't mean it, its all in good fun. Go to Es Cana on the water taxis and Cala Llonga (a taxi is a 10 euro, a lot cheaper if you have kids).
