First-class sea views and a handy location are just a couple of the Sol Beach House Ibiza's selling points. It also offers chic interiors and rooms with panoramas of the sea.
The seafront Sol Beach House Ibiza specialises in rooms with a view. In fact, most rooms come with balconies that look out over the Mediterranean. Décor-wise, they're going through a bit of a makeover. Expect chic and contemporary interiors, with bright white walls and turquoise soft furnishings.
The property is just a ten-minute walk from the beach. Plus, Santa Eulalia’s bars, restaurants, and famous hippy market are only a little bit further on.
Two pools have been built into in the hotel’s sea-facing terrace. They’re framed by hammocks, loungers and palms, and a resident masseuse visits for waterside treatments. You’ve got a cocktail bar, too.
By day, you can enjoy cooking classes and food and drink tasting sessions, as well as guided walks of the local area. Evenings, meanwhile, are shaped by acoustic music performances and midnight pool parties with a chilled-out soundtrack.

2 outdoor pools
The pool area is getting a makeover for summer 2015. Both the pools come with views of the Med. They're edged by a roomy sun terrace that's equipped with sunbeds, parasols and hammocks. Just so you know, there's an extra charge if you'd like to borrow pool towels.
The buffet restaurant is being refreshed for summer 2015. It opens for breakfast and dinner, and there's a regular show cooking and an Italian section open in July and August.
Acoustic live music leads the way when it comes to the evening entertainment schedule here.

First time in Ibiza
Beautiful modern hotel in a fabulous location but OMG do they have problems. Unlike reviewers who appeared to stay the same time as us, we did not have a wonderful sea view or full poolside view room. We were allocated a disabled room (we are both fortunate not to have any disabilities) and our immediate view was a blank white wall with a view to the right of the pool. There were no shelves in the bathroom for toiletries - not good for two women with lots of lotions and potions. So they were lined up like soldiers along the floor attracting ants. We did not have a safe and had to approach a disbelieving reception several times over a 2 day period before having one 'glued' into the wardrobe. Also reported air conditioning did not work - technician came, fiddled with both panel and service box and told us to wait ten minutes for it to work. We were still waiting on the seventh day! (Yes we did shut the door!) Sun beds around the poolside were amazing if you were lucky enough to get one. Really could not believe that all conversation buzzing around breakfast amounted to the laying of towels at 6am! We went to the beach everyday to get our sunbeds at 10am however did manage to get a bed around the pool late afternoon on two occasions. We were bed and breakfast so ate out at the many lovely restaurants in the evening however it would have been nice to have a coffee or drink on our return but the bar shuts at 11pm on the dot. No Jet2 rep appeared the whole time we were there and we had to be told by another visiting travel rep that an information book was available behind reception. Reception staff were miserable, unapproachable and at times rude - definately in need of customer service training. Asking bar staff for a glass of ice became a challenge, however we did manage to go from 3 cubes to 6 by the end of the week. All in all the above did not spoil our holiday and I would probably return to Ibiza having taken names of surrounding hotels which had atmosphere and the customer at heart.More

A hotel that will divide opinion
we returned today from a weeks stay at the Sol Beach Hotel. Unlike others this was our first time here so no comparison with previous layout and decor is possible. Ok firstly I read reviews prior to arrival and ascertained the sol beach hotel sun lounger challenge! Luckily I am early riser so was able to always get one in a suitable position for all 7 days, my wife isn't and if I hadn't been able to secure loungers there would have been hell to play. On our first day we heard about the extra ordered loungers but it took a large organisation 6 further days to have them actually placed at hotel grounds. You could sense the relief with customers but this should have been sorted two days after opening on June 1st. Whoever logistically planned loungers needs to seriously review their decision making process. Another obvious change is the hotels transition from an older based customer to a younger clientele. It isn't right to take people's money a year in advance and change the whole culture of the hotel. From a personal perspective we found the location to be 9/10, breakfast 9/10, dinner 7.5/10. Lunch option I would describe as needing a revamp from start to finish.0/10. Staff I suspect some of the older staff are resentful of the changes, I suggest get over it or leave and workelsewhere. I also feel that there could have been a few more staff on at breakfast and dinner. Would I return, yes. I would chose a suite again as extra space was useful. Probably bed and breakfast next time as the marina offered numerous options to please. Santa Eulalia is a overly place to visitMore

Refurbished at the cost of customer service
We have stayed in the Sol Beach house 5 times before when it was the Sol Ibiza. We weren't told of the refurbishment by Thomas Cook before we departed. On arrival I must say the public areas had the 'wow' factor. However we were surprised our room wasn't ready despite not arriving until18.45. 30 minutes later we got to the room. As anybody who has stayed here before will tell you the walls of the rooms were really thin, they have sorted this out by soundproofing the walls, making the already small rooms even smaller, and at the cost of storage space, which now, with no doors on the wardrobe reminded us of a travel lodge. On the positive side the new bed was extremely comfortable, and the new shower in the bathroom was excellent, although a plug in the hand basin would have been nice. I showed the maid it was missing, she nodded and...it never arrived The maid service has been better and the rooms cleaner. The dining room was definitely in need of modernising, the problem being it now looks like a canteen not a restaurant. Which is why most people ate in the new outdoor restaurant area. This was lovely, but who ever chose the array of dining chairs clearly never sat in them! They are definitely not for a long meal The service in the dining room was poor - because there is not enough staff anywhere in the hotel. Sunbeds? What sunbeds! rarer than hen's teeth after 7am and a parasol? You'll be lucky! On our previous stays there were plenty of sunbeds all day. The new hammocks looked great, but most guests used them as a last resort. Others just put their towels on the grass area. I DO NOT EXPECT TO LIE ON THE GRASS IN A 4 STAR HOTEL! And don't start me on the constant 'mood' music that was playing everywhere except our room. It started at 8 am and went on all day. I like music - my own through headphones! We, and other guests objected to the drone device that hovered around the pool area for 30 minutes taking pictures while we were sunbathing encroaching on our privacy without permission. We had booked for 2 weeks but halfway through the second week we'd had enough, I was glad when it was time to go, but the final straw was to come. On the day of departure we had an evening flight, we couldn't keep the room on and no courtesy room either! And the staff on reception couldn't care less. Not good enough!More

Happy when we booked, will never do so again!!
Returned to what we expected to be the Sol Ibiza that we booked last year, our 5th time to the hotel, we were not notified of any change to name or refurbishment by our Thomas Cook branch, as they had not been notified of the major refurbishment that has resulted in a once attractive, warm, friendly place, to the cold and uninviting place it has become. GONE...lovely gardens to relax in ARRIVED, decking all over the grass with shabby tables and chairs all over for breakfast/dinner GONE...lovely poolside snack bar, serving peoples every need ARRIVED... shoved in a corner and away from pool a bar that only served hot meals, no baguettes, or light snacks/Ice Creams, smiling staff GONE...Indoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna ARRIVED now outdoor pool that is too cold to use GONE.....Information on weather, entertainment, activities & rep information area ARRIVED nothing GONE....Smartly dressed, attentive waiting staff ARRIVED miserable staff in polo shirts and jeans that have been worn all day GONE A large variety of edible food, especially puddings ARRIVED fruit in a small cup and lack of variety in all areas, one saving grace freshly baked bread in the mornings GONE....Tables with tablecloths, place settings laid out with proper wine/water glasses, proper seating and waiters that rush to take your drink orders because they enjoy their job ARRIVED....Wooden bench seats, high tables and stools garden like furniture, and reusable place mats. Waiters that ask for drink orders if they fancied the look of you and probably thought would get a tip. Glass beakers for water and jam jars with cutlery GONE....large rooms with the privacy of closed in wardrobes, carpets, large storage space, telephones that worked and lights that turned on when you wanted to use them, also air conditioning that stayed on when you left the room....ARRIVED rooms that have had around a third taken from them for sound proofing, laminate flooring (EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK IN HOTEL), wardrobes not big enough for hanging long dresses in, now open plan with everything in view, lights that come on when you enter the room and air conditioning that goes off when your out. Deck chairs on the balcony, not very comfy. GONE...plenty of sunbeds ARRIVED not a lot of sunbeds, 200 on order when we left 24/06 GONE...lay in...ARRIVED early wake up to grab sunbed by 6.30 GONE...reasonable dress code, trousers for dinner....ARRIVED swimming shorts and flip flops to eat in Could go on, but other reviewers have successfully put the annoyance that people like us, who have rebooked felt on the supposed improvements that â¬6 million can bring. We may be over 50 but know when you have been ripped off and a good thing spoilt. Our thanks and appreciation go to Kelsey the Thomas Cook Rep, who, in her first REP job has had to cope with the multitude of complaints that have come her way, I do hope things get better for her, even she couldn't get hold of the Manager. Like others we looked at the Thomson Estaques hotel next door and the Grupotel Santa Eularia and Spa that have what is expected of a four star hotel. Love the area and will be back but not to this hotel, although still has best seaviews and stunning pool.More

It is what it is!
Just returned from a 10 day stay at the Sol Beach hotel, this was our first time here so cannot do a comparison pre-refurbishment like other reviewers, but we did book it last year based on the pre-furb description via Jet 2 holidays. Firstly, I can say that we had a nice relaxing holiday overall and the location was beautiful,any issues we had with the hotel look and feel we worked around and didn't let it get us down as we are a pretty laid back couple in our mid fifties. But I would like to let future visitors know what to expect, such as :- you may be unlucky enough to get the spanish versions of Rosa Klebb (goldfinger movie) and wee Jimmy Krankie checking you in at reception during the day,(the evening reception staff are much more professional and care more).These two don't give a toss! If you are the sort of person who likes to get a sunbed without getting up at silly o'clock like the embarassing british wrinklies do every morning - Don't go here. If you are the sort of person who likes to dress properly for dinner and doesn't want to sit in a Billy Butlins holiday camp style canteen - don't go here. If you expect to have your room cleaned properly daily, like sheet changes, floors swept/mopped, air-con kept on,lights that work - don't go here. If you want decent balcony furniture instead of back breaking deck chairs - don't go here. If you don't want to listen to all day long 'lift music' or Jazz style evening entertainment - don't go here. If you want a proper daytime snack bar that doesn't serve pretencious overpriced food - don't go here. If you are over 45 years old and british and don't look stylish they don't want you there - don't go here. But if you are young,Spanish/Italian/German this is the place for you. Santa Eulalia is a lovely place to visit with plenty of eateries and other hotels to suit everyones needs. Would we go back?, yes but not to this hotel as its identity has changed.listening to a lot of the regulars that have been over the years, they are not impressed any more.The younger staff members do try their best, but I fear they will not be staying year after year and have been put here by the hotel owners to be grounded and to learn their chosen trade. Such a shame really for a hotel that is a potential goldmine due to its location.More
