The Holiday Village Seaview Ibiza is a best-of-both-worlds hotel with a chilled-out beach scene and a high-speed waterpark starring the likes of Kamikaze, Tornado and Aquaracer.
This hotel has had a few changes for summer 2015, with a snake-like infinity pool being added. Expect a waterpark, as well as Holiday Village classics like the sky-high Aerial Adventure and themed academies.
Great views come with the territory at this place – it’s got a sea-view pool that’s just a few minutes’ walk away from the beach. And when it comes to rooms, you can upgrade to a swim-up pad.

First things first, I am a little late in leaving this review as I've only just registered on tripadvisor. As I know the hotel has been refurbished since we stayed here, it was in June 2013 when we stayed here) I will focus my review on our experience here as opposed to the dÃ©cor. I have actually stayed in the 'Seaview Country Club' 3 times now, twice as a child and then I visited with my partner on which was his first holiday abroad. I decided to take him here, as I knew from previous visits that there would be plenty to do in Ibiza to keep us both busy. I also knew this hotel was in a quieter location than the famous 'San Antonio Bay', which is just a 30 minute walk, or a short bus, or even boat trip away from Port d'es Torrent. The Seaview hotel hadn't changed much since I'd visited as a child. The hotel itself- the pool, restaurants and entertainment areas were all as I remembered them. However, the hotel has built a new waterpark within it's grounds. It isn't a huge waterpark, but there are a few slides/flumes to enjoy, and you don't have to pay to use these facilities, so it is a bonus, especially for families that don't leave the hotel grounds. Personally, I thought the hotel looked well kept during our stay and was surprised they was closing it shortly after our visit for refurbishment, as I didn't find any areas I thought looked ready for attention. However, I'm sure since our last visit it looks refreshed for an update. The food at the hotel was very nice, but some evenings there was so much choice it was hard to decide what to choose, and other nights there wasn't a particularly good selection. When there was a good selection though, the food always tasted nice and fresh. The other disappointing thing about the restaurants at this hotel is, when we stayed, the hotel worked on a 'wristband' system where you had to wear a coloured wristband to determine if you was 'half-board' or 'all inclusive' etc. The staff never explained to us in the restaurant as we was only half-board, we were only entitled to food and not drink. At the beginning of our stay, one night in the restaurant, we were given a jug of cola by a member of staff to take to our table. Another member of staff noticed our coloured wristbands, and came up to us and took the jug from us, quite rudely, and told us we weren't permitted to have drinks. They never explained to us how we could purchase drinks in the restaurant, so for the rest of the holiday, we find ourselves having our meals without drinks- not good. Not only that, we felt we was being watched by this particular member of staff during the remainder of our stay and it made the whole dining experience so bad, some nights we stopped bothering going into the restaurant. I believe that since our stay here, they have made this hotel 'all inclusive only' (this may not be correct, but this is what a travel agents told me) this may be a good thing, as at least it will prevent situations like the one we experienced. Whilst on the subject of the restaurant, I don't know if she is still there, but when we visited, there was an artist based outside the restaurant in the evening. We had a pastel portrait created by her on our visit. It cost just over 100 Euro's but was worth every penny. The detail on it is incredible. The hotel does provide various entertainment throughout the day and night. If you stay within the hotel grounds for long during the day it is not uncommon to here the reps and kids walking around the grounds singing. They also do quite a lot of entertainment in the pool/poolside area in the day and at there is an entertainment stage that had discos etc. in the evening. We didn't really spend much time at the hotel. We never go all inclusive as we like the freedom of being able to leave the hotel grounds and explore the local area, and different restaurants etc. (Ibiza is great for exploring and there are lots of boat trips, water sports etc. you can do in San Antonio as we did, and of course, watching the sunset!) There is also a small beach right next to the hotel where you can hire pedalo's and go swimming in the day, or even get the boat to San Antonio. There is also bar that provides evening entertainment, as we preferred to go there at night as the atmosphere was more relaxed than at the hotel. However, we did have the odd day/evening where we spent time at the hotel. I must warn you, if you do not like noise, this isn't the hotel for you. It is a family hotel, and the entertainment does make it quite loud. The worst thing for us was the evening entertainment, as when the entertainment finished, quite late at night, the hotel corridors become filled with children running up and down screaming waking everyone up. So, although the hotel is ideal for families, it is not so brilliant for families that are trying to settle young children for bed in the evening with all the noise. It was exactly the same when I stayed here as a child, and it is one of the only negatives to staying here (alongside never been able to get a sunbed due to people reserving them with towels!) I know these are things that are common problems on holidays, but I do think hotel staff should take action to prevent both of these common nuisances causing upset with other guests. My partner and I both agreed after staying here, that despite the location of the hotel, and the views from the hotel being very nice, we probably wouldn't return to this hotel again, purely because of the noise from both the corridors and neighbouring rooms late at night when people return from the evening entertainment. So overall, the con's- restaurant staff and food bit hit and miss, very loud in the evenings. the pro's- quiet location, close to nice beach, not too far from, free waterpark entry, plenty to keep the kids entertained.. I have rated the hotel as 'very good' as it was nice and clean, generally well maintained with plenty for families and children to do. If it wasn't for the late night noise, and the fact the hotel is now 'all inclusive' therefore, no longer meeting our requirements, we would of stayed here again..More

My partner, 6 year old daughter and I stayed here for a week in August 2014. Location: the hotel is a few minutes walk from a small beach which was nice but not spectacular. Snorkelling was good. There isn't much else in the immediate area other than a small shop selling mostly souvenirs and clothing. There is a regular bus service outside the hotel and it's only a short journey in to San Antonio if you fancy it. For us it was a necessity as the airline lost my luggage and I didn't get it back for 3 days so needed to do some shopping for essentials. Room: first impressions were good - our room had been recently refurbished and was fresh and modern. We had a lovely view of the beach from our balcony. Upon closer inspection, it had clearly been rushed though and not to a very good standard, a lot of it was patched over and unfinished. The bathroom had a new sink and WC but still all the old tiles and floor which had seen better days. Still, we weren't there to stare at the room all day and it was a good size and the family room layout with partition suited us very well. We slept well and had no issues with noise. Facilities: the pool was nice although only a small section of it was shallow for children, the majority was deep and you also weren't allowed inflatables in the deep parts meaning the shallow parts were quite busy. Also I was surprised that for a hotel of this size there was only one pool. We we there the very last week of the school holidays so it was a lot quieter, I can only imagine how crowded it must be at full capacity. I understand there is a new pool for 2015 though so this will be a real improvement. There was only one floater closure when we were there. We never had too much trouble getting a sunbed although were never early enough for the prime spots! Whatever time we came down, there was always towels out on most of the first two rows around the pool. It certainly wasn't being policed by hotel staff. My little girl LOVED the aerial high wire and did this at least once every day so a big hit. We also enjoyed the waterpark and had lots of fun there. Entertainment: the first choice team headed by Rachel and Adam worked really hard and did a fab job. My daughter loved the i5live shows and particularly Russell the Brussell and the Widgits. These guys seemed to be working around the clock but always maintained their energy and enthusiasm. My daughter loved the singing shows and took a particular liking to cute little Shaun! (Think my other half took a bit of a shine to the gorgeous Abi!). Food: we found the food very good. The variety of food in the buffet was vast, so many different choices. A real effort was made here and nothing ever ran out. There were a couple of themed nights too. We never had any trouble finding something we wanted to eat. We also ate in the Italian restaurant which wasn't that great but we really enjoyed the steak restaurant (fab sunset views). Drink variety was good, we never had to really queue more than a minute or two at the bars. To summarise, we had a great week away (luggage dramas aside). I would go back but probably won't as think we'd prefer a bigger beach nearby and a bit more in the local area. As a hotel though, I'd definitely return to somewhere like this as the facilities for children were fab with the aerial adventure and waterpark being a real selling point for this hotel.More

We have been to this hotel 8 times with our children and have always enjoyed our holidays here the staff are always friendly and happy to help and Tony in the VIP lounge has always been very helpful over the years. The hotel has high standards and is always clean. The pool is a good size and the children really enjoyed the water park. The food is always good and plenty of choice for everyone. We are looking forward to come back in July to the Seaview and to see all the changes that have been made to the hotel. We now have 5 children and we are looking forward to bringing our daughter for the first time.More
