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 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.

Okay for the deal we got but NOT worth the money in peak season! Would try other places rather than revisit
Me and my boyfriend stayed in October 2015 and got a really good deal (about Â£340) for the week all inclusive. We were looking for a cheap and cheerful holiday and that's what we got. However, I would advise not paying Â£1000+ for a week which is what I've seen online as a friend questioned me about this hotel in peak season. Positives: 1. Our room - this was an upgrade for free on the first choice website and it was lovely and clean, it included a second room with lounge area and we had a private outdoor bit that was right next to the sea, so lovely sea view. It was cleaned daily, however the fridges weren't restocked daily and there was no alcohol in the fridge (Something that a lot of all inclusives do) 2. Sunset Grill - you receive 2 tickets per week you stay at the hotel, to dine in one of the three other restaurants beside the main restaurant. We ate in the American diner (wouldn't recommend as better quality food in the main restaurant and no plastic plates), and the sunset grill. The sunset grill had absolutely stunning views of the sunset, so be sure to book it about an hour before the sun goes down. The food was standard to the main restaurant, but better than the diner and eating outside while watching the sun go down was really something. 3. Sunset pool - There are 2 pools, one is large and surrounded by lots and lots of sunbeds. One is a little smaller pool overlooking the sea and more chilled than the giant one. It is a little windy due to being right by the sea but it's a nice place to chill out during the day and it has a bar right next to it. The cocktails there are extra but discounted for the all inclusive packages. People would gather to watch the sunset in the evening. 4. Location - if you want a family/quietish place to go but still be near to everything, this is perfect. There's a beach in walking distance that you can see from the pool area and san antonio is a 11-15 euro taxi. there's also some bars and clubs that are a 5/10 minute walk away that I'm sure would be much better in peak season. 5. Waterpark next door and activity programme for kids - Although we didn't travel with kids, it's clear there's activities for them to do, also there's a waterpark included in the price in the hotel next door. Negatives/Room for improvement - 1.Activity programme for adults - there was only football, no daily activity programme for adults like it states and if there was one, the whole time we were there we didn't get approached by one activity worker (which usually happens on all inclusives) to join in with various things happening during the day. 2. All inclusive, in my opinion tend to have average night time entertainment, so we didn't have our hopes up, but this was another level of poor. It was embarrassing to watch, the magician wasn't doing tricks and when he attempted to we could see or it didn't work. The motown performers didn't sound good either. 3. Hygiene in restaurant & Doctor DO NOT CALLOUT, just got straight to hospital - I'm usually the one that never gets ill on holiday, I've been to other countries where it's expected to get a little ill and haven't, but I've never ever been ill like this. It was obviously something that I'd caught from the food at the hotel and I was violently vomiting, fainting just before and after being sick and the other toilet stuff ...at the same time, for 12 hours straight. When the hotel heard about it, they sent a letter through our door explaining it was usual for this hotel and some advice (which wasn't helpful after being ill). We contemplated calling the doctor out (for a fee of over 100 euros) and luckily my boyfriend bumped into him in the corridor, he didn't give off an attitude you would expect and when my boyfriend enquired for me, the doctor explained if called out, he would examine me and either say i needed to go to hospital or stay in bed as the hospital would then diagnose. Rip off. We went straight to the hospital and I was put on a drip. Do not call the doctor out, he was really unhelpful. Things they need to/could improve on: 1.Food - there were flies on the food at some points, which is inevitable as its a hot place and the buffet style means they will attract, however the amount I saw during my stay meant there wasn't major efforts being made to discourage them. 2.Alcohol - the beer was always flat and the spirits they use must be so so cheap because we had to leave the resort to have nice alcoholic drinks, which isn't what you want when you've paid for all inclusive. 3. Service - The check in took forever, there was a massive queue so better organisation would mean customers had a better experience on arrival. 4. Activities - I can't speak for everyone, but I look at what they have at the resort when booking all inclusive and when it says daily activity programme, it usually means there's something arranged to keep adults entertained. Not just football once a day and the rest for kids only. 5. Hygiene - I'd heard a few other people getting ill due to the same bug and the hospital said it would be because of the cleanliness at the hotel. Pool/food areas. It meant my boyfriend ate alone for 7 meals and we stayed in the hotel room for 2 days out of 7. Overall, it was nice, we had a good time, but it proved you get what you pay for. We thought we got a bargain and we were happy paying Â£300pp for a week if we'd have gone in months where the weather was a little warmer. However, I'm in shock at the prices I've seen in peak season.More

Good but could be great...
Visited this hotel last June for 7 nights with our daughter, who was then 18 months old. We had a good time, with only some aspects of our experience making me give this hotel only an average rating. Firstly- the check in experience. We got a taxi from the airport to try to beat the queue at check in. This worked! We got checked in pretty promptly and found the reception staff to be pleasant and helpful. We were given a map of the property so we could locate our room easily, we stayed in a seaview family room in petunia block. We were able to locate our room easily. I found that although our room was newly refurbished and very nice, the public corridors were shabby and a bit on the grubby side in comparison. The lift in our block had a cracked mirror in it, with some tape over the crack the whole way across it. This was like this when we arrived and wasn't fixed while we were there. The tape was peeling off in places, not the safest for young children! Our room itself as I mentioned had beautiful decor, was a little bit smaller than I anticipated but had a sliding door partition in it and was adequate for the 3 of us. Our view was spectacular from our balcony, overlooking the bay with the beach to our left. The only main drawback that we found was the walls were incredibly thin, we could here people coming back after enjoying the evening entertainment every night. Not always an issue for some but with a young child it wasn't ideal. Now for a quick run down on the good and bads of this hotel, starting with the good- as there were just as many! The pool areas are great, including the water park which we all loved because it wasn't that busy. I personally loved the infinity pool, it had a lovely vibe day and night. The cocktails here in the evening were fab, if not a bit on the pricey side but we enjoyed a couple nontheless! You also couldn't have asked for a more perfect sunset experience, which is of course what Ibiza is famous for. We found the staff fantastic, especially in the restaurant. They were incredibly friendly, and our little girl loved all the attention she got at mealtimes. The hotel's location is perfect. You are a stroll from San Antonio bay, with a host of shops, bars and restaurants, and of course the water taxi from the beach could take you into San Antonio town. Being next to the beach was lovely. The entertainment in the evening was good, although we only ever saw the early part. The team work very hard and it is a lovely set up outdoors with plenty of seating. Our little girl loved the music, dancing and widgets, and also enjoyed watching some peppa pig on the big screen- although you really need to be finished dinner by 6.30pm to catch this. Now, here are my negatives.... The food. Now I am not at all fussy, but I found the food here really poor and not 4* standard. It was repetitive, and the kids buffet was particularly disappointing with the options being very limited, and almost always one of the options was chips! It's fine, we don't mind chips.. Just not every night. We only got the opportunity to eat in the sunset grill on one occasion, we couldn't get a reservation any other night so I would recommend booking your a la carte times when you arrive. Our experience in the sunset grill was just ok, our food took a long time to arrive and when it did it wasn't great. I ordered fillet steak but found it to be quite chewy and rubbery! If there is one thing that this hotel needs to sharpen up on it is the food.. It would have made such a difference to our experience. The hotel offers free wifi but we were unable to get a signal in our room the whole time. It seems strong enough around the bar and pool area but once we got to our room we lost it. I can't comment too much on the kids clubs as our little girl was too young, but we did go one day to a stay and play session at the crÃ¨che. This in theory should be really good but unfortunately the crÃ¨che is really small, so with parents attending as well it was a bit mayhem. We didn't book any crÃ¨che sessions as we didn't feel the need to but I would have been happy to send my child there, the staff seemed very good and it was quite a secure set up. The hotel offers pool towels for a deposit, we availed of this but unfortunately someone felt the need to steal one of them one day while we were in the pool. Maybe if the deposit policy wasn't in place, people wouldn't feel the need to do this? Just a thought. Anyway, overall we had a good time. We chose this hotel because we thought it would be a good first holiday as a family, and it was. If the food had been better I am sure I would have given it 5*. Would I return? Possibly, but not for another few years and I would try to get a swim up room next time, they looked lovely.More

Travelled in August 2015. This was our 7th time at this hotel. We have watched it grow and become better every year. It's so good that we keep coming back! Going back again this year and staying in the Deluxe studio. Been in Swim up rooms the last 2 years however we were going to try somewhere else this year and couldn't find anything that quite matched up to this excellent hotel. More
Family holiday with 2 small kids - absolutely loved it!!!
I loved this place, it was my 40th and we went on a family holiday with Son of 7 and daughter of 4. we cant say enough good things, outstanding for kids, and since kids were so happy and so well entertained, that meant we were happy too! we made loads of friends all all of them were happy. i loved the entertainment, the food was fab (ok so its cooked to accomodate the average palate so you wont get it the way you do at a restaurant). the staff in this place are unreal, i've never known a place so well staffed (ratio of staff to guests was super), every single one of them polite and helpful and cheerful) Choice of food fantastic, never go hungry albeit a bit repetitive. we were there in late sept/early oct and it wasnt too busy, although busy enough for there to be a brilliant atmosphere, in fairness i would not like to go in the busy period as I imagine its absolutely jam packed and the sunloungers would be very limited and the pools nowhere near big enough to accomodate this place at full capacity. The thomson/first choice staff....wow! the friendlies, nicest bunch of people i've ever met. amazing with the kids (they remember everyones name!) kids club fantastic, the entertainment they put on would make the BGT final. Seriously talented dancers and singers and the Live and Loud show was hilarious. love the outdoor theatre. The swimming teacher Dean was our personal favourite, my son hero-worshipped him (Finley, age nearly-7 if Dean is reading this!) Our boy is very cautious and quite nervous and over a few days Dean had him swimming, Finley still talks about Dean!! I got a bad eye infection and the thomson reps were brilliant, helping me get to the hospital in san antonio. and the onsite nurse in the hotel was lovely. overall we had an amazing time. I would go back in a heartbeat. We had a family studio in the almond block, overlooking the main pool. Room was fantastic, had obviously been modernised recently, spotlessly clean (cleaned every day to a very high standard) beds super comfy, overall super impressed with the room. The little cove beach next to the hotel is gorgeous, the fire-juggler at night is great and there is a really chilled cool vibe down there, felt a bit more grown-uppy (reminding us of hols in exotic locations before we had kids!!) I've told everyone I know with kids to go here. If you dont have kids you might want to avoid....! its totally centred around them and their parents. More
