Where To Stay, Eat & Party In Ibiza

Ibiza’s summer season is now underway, so we’ve rounded up the best places to stay, eat and party. From iconic institutions to new openings and temporary pop-ups, this is the SL guide to the White Isle.


Hostal La Torre (£)

Considered one of Ibiza’s best sunset spots – and affordable properties – Hostal La Torre is a hidden gem in San Antonio. On a clifftop overlooking Cala Gracio beach, the hostel was made for meeting like-minded travellers on the terrace bar, exploring the beaches along the west coast and soaking up the chilled vibes reminiscent of the island’s 90s heyday. Guests can stay in one of 17 whitewashed rooms, complete with wooden furniture and nautical accessories, and dine at destination restaurant La Torre, which serves seafood and tapas. There isn’t a pool, but you can sit in the hostel’s lush gardens or enjoy Cala Gracio’s calm waters nearby. 

From £75 per night.

Hyde Ibiza (£)

Ennismore’s second Ibizan outpost is the oceanfront Hyde Ibiza in Cala Llonga, overlooking one of the island’s most beautiful – and quiet – beaches. Right next to the newly opened Mondrian, this hotel offers the best of both worlds for guests who want to enjoy poolside DJ sets during the day, then relax in one of its 401 rooms at night. There are five restaurants and bars, each with a different concept – from a traditional Spanish restaurant overlooking the beach, to modern Japanese restaurant Niko. There's also a generous buffet breakast each morning – imagine coffee and pastries overlooking the sparkling sea.

Rooms from £125 per night.

Cubanito (£)

A top choice during high season, you’ll probably recognise Cubanito’s Insta-worthy Havana-inspired interiors. It’s right in the middle of San Antonio, with some of the island’s best nightlife and restaurants on its doorstep. Rooms are bright and spacious with quirky retro furniture and outdoor terraces, while the rest of the hotel has art-deco interiors reminiscent of fun Cuban paladars. There’s a slick rooftop bar where guests can enjoy an array of mojitos, listen to DJ sets and take salsa lessons, as well as Little Havana, which serves Cuban food at the restaurant and pool. Non-residents can buy a day pass to use the facilities and take part in activities throughout the day. 

Rooms from £90 per night.

OKU (££)

With a relaxed, rustic vibe, OKU’S Ibiza hotel has the feel of a Six Senses property – just at a more accessible price. Offering understated five-star luxury in a beautiful location, it’s a few minutes’ walk from beautiful Cala Gració bay. Accommodation includes rooftop suites with sea views, rooms with swim-up pools and a private four-bedroom villa – perfect for anyone heading to the island with friends. The group offers an alternative way to experience island life, encouraging guests to disconnect and focus on themselves. Healing rituals include gong baths, reiki sessions and crystal healings. Best of all, the hotel has a selection of wellness breaks hosted by some of the best-known names in the fitness and wellness world.

Montesol Experimental (££)

This boutique hotel originally opened in 1933. Now it’s been taken over by Experimental Group, which already owns the island’s ever-popular Experimental Beach Ibiza at Playa des Codolar Salinas. The team has spent the last few years renovating the hotel’s 33 bedrooms and its restaurant and rooftop bar Cafe Montesol, which serves tapas dishes by chef Alex Larrea alongside Experimental cocktails. Following the transformation by French designer Dorothée Meilichzon, the restaurant has spaces inside, on a large terrace and on a striking rooftop overlooking Ibiza Old Town and the port.

Rooms from £270 per night.

Mondrian Ibiza (££)

Hospitality group Ennismore opened two properties last summer. First was Mondrian Ibiza on the island’s east coast. Taking inspiration from its buzzy sister property in Shoreditch, this hotel has more of a laidback feel with minimalist interiors that blend into the island backdrop. Guests can stay in one of 154 rooms (most have sea views), lounge in two pools and choose from three restaurants, including a Japanese bar that serves excellent and varying dishes.

Rooms from £190 per night.

Hotel Riomar (££)

Easily one of the top hotels in Santa Eulalia, on the quieter side of the island, Hotel Riomar attracts guests who want to lounge on the beach, eat excellent seafood and soak up the relaxed atmosphere of Ibiza’s eastern coast. With fresh interiors (the team who designed Nobu in Shoreditch were behind the 2021 refurbishment), mid-century style is mixed with neutral colours for a modern look. Guests can take part in complimentary activities like yoga in the morning, before tucking into generous breakfasts on the terrace. The food is particularly good – expect calamari, truffle pasta and king prawns served with cocktails – and spicy palomas and margaritas with beats from the DJ at Tribe. 

Rooms from £180 per night.

Atzaró (££)

A longstanding favourite of those in the know, Atzaró lets you dip in and out of the party scene thanks to its secluded location in Santa Eulalia, surrounded by orange groves in the Mediterranean garden. The hotel has 24 light and bright suites, with further rooms in the works. There are also nine pools, a private beach with daybeds, and a spa tucked away in the orange groves. Atzaró’s destination restaurant La Veranda serves Mediterranean dishes made with healthy and natural ingredients grown in the estate’s vegetable garden, while Aubergine By Atzaró – its farm-to-table concept – is just ten minutes down the road. 

Rooms from £250 per night.

El Hotel Pacha (££)

Pacha’s hotel has been closed for the last few years, but it recently reopened following an extensive renovation. The property is across the street from the brand’s iconic nightclub (guests get free entry) and a ten-minute walk from Ibiza Town. The interiors celebrate the best of Spanish design with earthy tones, neutral textures and a modern Balearic aesthetic – all 56 rooms have terraces and spacious marble en-suites.

Can Sastre (££)

If you’re going to Ibiza to explore the hiking routes and more laidback side of the island, Can Sastre is a small boutique hotel in the rural village of San Rafael, a 20-minute drive from Old Town. Here, it’s all about relaxing and connecting with nature through outdoor yoga classes, bike rides and snorkelling. There are three rooms and two villas spread across white-washed buildings which feel more like a private holiday home – the deluxe suite is ideal for couples while the villa suite sleeps four across two bedrooms. Guests can enjoy brunch poolside, though you’ll need to make reservations for lunch and dinner.

Rooms from £220 per night.

Visit CanSastre.com

Grand Paradiso (££)

A deluxe, suites-only addition to the Paradiso Art Hotel, Grand Paradiso is set to open in August. In San Antonio Bay, the selling point is its faithfully recreated 1950s Americana style. A first for the island, the theme incorporates art-deco touches, jukeboxes in the lobby, a 50s-style cinema and a jacuzzi inside a Cadillac Eldorado (the ‘Caduzzi’). Film is a huge inspiration here – suites are called ‘Almódovar’, ‘David Lynch’ and ‘Wes Anderson’ – and there will be an art gallery celebrating works by audio-visual artists. In the pool area, look out for a DJ booth in the shape of a classic Miami beach hut, complete with backstage VIP space for 20 guests.

Rooms from £210 per night.

W Ibiza (££)

For round-the-clock partying, W Ibiza offers a high-octane experience. Set right beside Santa Eulalia Bay, there are six restaurants and bars, each with a different vibe.

Nativo Hotel Ibiza (££)

Four-star Nativo Hotel Ibiza opened a couple of years ago and is perfect if you’re looking for something fun, relaxed and a little bit boho. It’s in Siesta, a tranquil residential area of Santa Eulalia del Río, on the northern coast of Ibiza. Close to the beach, there are also three pool areas – we like the adults-only one, which is on the rooftop next to a restaurant and cocktail bar. The two ground-floor pools are enclosed by natural sand zones so guests can walk barefoot, alongside palm trees, sunbeds and hammocks. 

Rooms from £285 per night.

The Standard (£££)

Fronting the Vara de Rey plaza in Old Town, this hotel is set in a stark white building that forms the backdrop for the bright, eclectic décor and landscaping throughout the property. The design celebrates the 1960s energy that originally attracted so many to Ibiza. A street-level restaurant spills onto the plaza during the day, before transforming into a nightlife hub after hours. The Standard also has a separate building – Casa Privada – available for groups. With its own private pool, bar, gym, lounge and 14 bedrooms, the hideaway is just a block away from all the amenities of the hotel, but with the privacy of a villa, including two suites with outdoor terraces and tubs. 

Rooms from £285 per night.

Six Senses (£££)

There was a lot of buzz when Six Senses opened its doors a few years ago. With excellent service and all the facilities you’d expect, it’s perched over beautiful Xarraca Bay. The hotel has already received a string of awards for its eco-friendly design (think solar panels, renewable energy and geothermal cooling systems in the infinity pool). There’s a variety of rooms on offer, a spa with an extensive treatment list, and bars and restaurants for various occasions, including North headed up by Israeli chef Eyal Shani, and the Beach Caves inspired by Latin America. A top choice for a blow-the-budget trip. 

Rooms from £455 per night.

Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay (£££)

For total luxury, Nobu is set on the shore of Talamanca Bay – one of the quieter beaches on the island. Rooms and suites are sleek and have been designed to blend in with the scenic settings – think rattan furniture, natural colours and light wooden furniture – and some have private pools overlooking the beach. There are two outdoor pools (waiters will bring jugs of sangria to your sun lounger) plus a spa for indulgent treatments, but the main draw is the food. Diners can eat at Nobu’s destination Japanese restaurant or BiBo by Michelin-starred Dani Garcia for Mediterranean dishes.

Rooms from £490 per night.

For Party Vibes

Ibiza welcomed a string of top restaurants last year, and there are more newcomers to add to your list this summer.

Dine in the two-level al fresco restaurant within a restored 18th-century finca, then grab drinks at the bar which will have an array of tequilas and mezcals.

El Olivo Mio
For Dinner In Old Town

Ibiza’s Old Town is lined with family run restaurants and cafés, but El Olivo Mio serves some of the best Mediterranean food.

Current menu highlights include burratina with tomatoes and homemade fig jam; seabass ceviche with mango and avocado; grilled scallops and fennel salad; and tagliatelle with clams. Don’t forget to order carafes of sangria for the table.

Cotton Beach
For Lunch With A View

Cotton Beach overlooks Cala Tarida on Ibiza's southwest coast, which is renowned for its sunsets.

A favourite of the fashion set and mega-celebs over the decades (picture Kate Moss, Freddie Mercury and George Michael) Pikes is one of the oldest and most famous Ibizan institutions.
