Playa Bella Apartments

These apartments have real family appeal, with kids' pools and entertainment around the clock. Apartments come king-sized and the two restaurants offer up please-all fare. Plus, its beachfront spot means San Antonio's sands are just moments away.

This place is right on Punta Xinxo Beach, just along from San Antonio proper. And its huge terrace virtually melts into the beach. Cross the walkway and you’re on the sands in seconds.

As to the complex itself, it’s made up of four-storey blocks grouped around the terrace. Sunbeds are here in force and the main, cloverleaf-shaped pool is pretty, with palm trees rising up from its centre. One of the pool’s ‘leaves’ is reserved for toddlers. The highlight, though, is the neighbouring splash pool. Complete with a novelty shark, shipwreck, showers and chutes, it’s the equivalent of a miniature aqua park.

Apartments are spacious and light. Most have undergone a recent refurbishment, too. Fresh magnolia walls have been teamed with blue-and-yellow furnishings. Smart kitchenettes and balconies or terraces finish things off. In terms of size, you can choose between studios and one, two or three-bedroom apartments, some of which offer bay views.

Elsewhere, you’ve got all the essentials on tap. There are two bright and breezy restaurants serving international dishes, plus a friendly bar on the beachfront. Add games and shows in the evening and you’ve got entertainment covered.

What’s more, getting to San Antonio is easy. Buses run into town from nearby or you can walk there – it’ll take around 45 minutes. Or there’s always the more scenic option of water taxis, which cruise to the centre or other nearby beaches. And if you don’t fancy going into town, there are plenty of restaurants and bars just outside the complex.

Fab friendly apartments

Just back from a weeks stay at playa bella we had a 3 bed apartment and had plenty of room lovely views over the sea, fantastic food reception staff fab couldn't help u enough we had problems with air con told them on the Sunday not expecting to be fixed straight away but amazingly was fixed within the hour. Our only concern was the sun beds that guests put towels out and didn't use the beds which was quite annoying when u couldn't find a bed, otherwise we couldn't fault the hotel at allMore

First impressions were dreadful but fab after 12 hours

first arrived got dropped off at top of the road next to a building site... Walked down to reception where a foreign man with a cig hanging out his mouth greeted us and showed the lifts to where we needed to go... Got to our room and I could have cried thinking what had we come too... Went to bed woke up in the morning and went to the meeting... Thomson rep useless we ended up asking people on reception everything we needed to know... She was lovely and English and very helpful.. Apartments lovely and just what we needed plenty to do for the kids in the day however night time was a let down as we were told our kids couldn't do the kids club as were thomson and not skytours... But we just got a water taxi over to San Antonio which was a lovely ride and the boat men were friendly and lovely too... I would stay here again the kids loved the pools however the beach is very poor so we got a bus a fair few times to Port des Torrent and used their beach in like a cove which was truely amazing also go and visit Cala Basa that place is really lovely too...More

5* couldn't be better! What a wonderful hotel with incredible food

We came here (myself 22, my mum and my sister,17) on a budget holiday. It was only rated 2* but it looked ok so we booked. We couldn't be happier with the hotel. Absolutely spotless and we weren't in a superior room. Very very clean and tidy room. The best part about this hotel is the INCREDIBLE food provided! We were half board and expected the standard buffet food, however it is waiter service all day and the food is on another level. Choice of fresh stone baked pizzas, massive fresh tuna steak, swordfish, steak, chicken kebabs. It's such a shame that more people don't just visit playa bella on the off chance just to eat. (The restaurant doesn't look like much more than a little cafe!) Bars and clubs close by and then a €6 taxi to main San Antonio town. Perfect for us. Staff were friendly and very polite. And the hotel is directly on the beach. We will be visiting again and I can't wait. Literally the only down side were the amount of looky-looky men - but you get that everywhere. I don't want to sound snobby but we are used to 4-5 star hotels and only did this on a budget and I have to say, it was far better than what we have experienced before. Book now while the deals are on!! Loved it. (Feeling the Ibiza blues now :(...)More

Loved it !

This was our first holiday to Ibiza and we loved everything, the pool had more than enough beds, beach on the front, two bedroom apartment very spacious with large suntrap balcony, restaurants, bars and shops all attached to the complex so my two teenage girls, at 16 &17, could have a bit of independence. There was plenty for the younger ones too, kids pool with slides etc and kids clubs. Nightlife in the bay was very good, lots of choice, if wanted to go to town just hopped on water taxi ( fab for 3 euros ) Everyone friendly, although the lucky men did get a bit irritating towards the end, would definitely go back.More
