Great for what you pay
the hotel was very basic but the staff are friendly, i would defo stay there again close to the west end and linikers. rooms are basic and dont have a fridge which is a bit of a down fall but over all you pay for what you get. get for young party people!

Was nice but... could be better.
We booked it only because it was about £300 total for a couple. And we get what we paid for... not worth penny more.
Let's start from the beginning. Flight and transfer were organized great, with no problem. When we arrived into hostal (it is not hotel!) we saw queue to check in. We were waiting about 1.5h to get the room and we had to pay 100 euros deposit (50 each). No extras - small, clean room with balcony (we had street view), two beds, wardrobe, desk, one chair and bedside table. Bathroom with bath and shower, clean towels. No air condition unless you pay about 25 euros for a week or 4 euros per day. There is wi-fi but it drops connection or you can't connect at all. Forget to have it in the room but during night or early morning you might be lucky to get in on the balcony. Obviously you can pay to use internet cafe located ground floor. Breakfast is worst part... Served only till 10am and if you are late 5 min. you wont get drink because machine will be switched off. Your choice: bread or small baguettes, butter, two kinds of jam, one kind of ham, cheese, you can make toasts. That's all. 7 days the same. Swimming pool is small but sunny. Bar serve some food (never tried after seeing breakfast) and quite good choice of drinks - beers, cocktails, spirits in affordable prices. Staff is very nice and helpful.
Hostal is located about 15-20 min walk from center of San Antonio with great bars , restaurants, clubs and day entertainment. Little advice - ignore ladies doing bracelets or hair plates, walk a bit more (both sides) or get water taxi to see beautiful beeches with clean sand and blue water, try parasailing and don't go out for a party before midnight (except sunset party in Cafe Mambo or anywhere around). There is plenty to do if you have money and great company.
It's always better to explore by yourself than paying Rep to show you around. You will find exactly the same or more without paying. The West End and beech bars are free entry, only for clubs you need tickets (from 15 to 77 euros). Drinks prices are various, from 2 euros for pint to 20 euros for 'posh' cocktail. The same is with food, you can eat nice kebab for 6 euros or meal in the restaurant for 30. You will need no more than two days to recognize it all.
You have to check out at 10 am - no matter what time your flight is. You can leave your baggage in the hostal (there is special room for it) and stay in the bar or swimming pool area how long you need. You can (obviously) pay if you want to keep your room till 6 pm - 25 euros or 2.5 euros to use 'shower room'. You will get your deposit back within few hours. If you leave room tidy and you didn't break hostal rules they will give you full deposit with no problem.

BAD EXPERIENCE WITH THOMAS COOK AND HOTEL APOLO
With the confirmation of the reservation on Internet, it was no address of the hotel so when we arrived in Ibiza, no one knew about this hotel (taxis, informations office, locals...) so we have decided to call the Thomas Cook number on the resevation, the first surprise this number was not in connexion with our trip, anyway I have asked some help and the lady on the phone give me the address of this hotel, by the way the name is"Hotel APOLO" in SAN ANTONIO - IBIZA, but the only hotel she find was in Palma de MAJORCA, not in Ibiza ???? And she gave me the address of Majorca, how confusing is that !!! Anyway, I have checked myself on internet and me too I have found the only address In Palma de Majorca. I have spent a fortune in international call to UK to sort it out but all of your custumers branch are closed on sunday ??? Even the THOMAS COOK agency in IBIZA Airport did not hepl me at all because he told me it's THOMAS COOK from Netherland !!!!??? Anyway, I almost took the direction of the ferry but after we have spend many hours in the stress, lost our patience and energy (without any help on the phone, just wrong address), we found the hotel to check in at 6 PM !!!! And we have lost one day !!!! Second really bad point it is about the ranking of the hotel, when I booked my reservation I have booked it as a 3 stars hotel, it is exactly what THOMAS COOK Web site said about the APOLO Hotel, but what a surpise there, because finally it is a 2 stars Hotel ???? This Hotel is a proper mess, I mean with the people they do whatever they want, shouting, loud music everywhere, nobody from the staff did say anything, even couple make love we could hear, really this noise and mess in this hotel was a nightmare !!! So today I ask for some answer about the poorness of your descriptions et informations. Many thanks

Hotel Apollo was perfect for me as I just wanted a cheap place to stay after a hard nights clubbing. Rooms where basic, but fair for the price. Downside was the breakfast; which consisted of hot drinks and toast, but there are so many good cafes near by it wasn't an issue. Staff where friendly and helpful,with night time security. The pool bar had a great lively atmosphere and good selection of drinks and some fastfood. Hotel location is between San An. and the Bay a bit further out, may be a 10/15 minute walk from Eden/ Es Paradis. Absolutely love Ibiza and had an amazing time. I would recomend Hotel Apollo to anyone thats after a good time in the sun parting, who just wants a bed and hot shower for the week... after all who wants to spend their holiday in the hotel?

Hotel Apolo is a 10 minute walk from San Antonio Beach, with smaller beaches just an extra 5 minutes away. The Hotel is ideally located, slightly out of the hussle and bustle of the town yet close to Eden and Es Paradise, however a longer walk to the West End. Cafe Del Mar is an easy 25 min walk but worth the visit. Hotel Apolo is noisy - expected from an 18-30s hotel. Pool side very busy, good luck grabbing a sun lounger. We avoided the pool and relaxed by the sea instead. Walls are paper thin and you can hear everything from neighbouring rooms. Don't expect much sleep here! Watch out for the handbag theifs on the beach, I had my bag stolen and chased after them! I was lucky to get mine back. There are many bars and restaurants to watch the beautiful sunsets from. I recommend a Tapas restaurant 200m off the main road from Linnekers. Whether you're looking for a relaxing holiday or wanting the best club scene in the world - this is the ideal place.

Great time in Ibizaaa!
I Love Ibizaaa, ive been a few times and every year i love it even more. This is the first time i went with thomas cook and it was such a bargain! Everything was great, the staff, the reps and location. Altough it wasn't right in the centre, everything was a short walk away. The room itself was very basic , but for an 18-30s you cant complain, the food wasn't the best but it was cheap if you want a snack and the drinks were an absolute bargain.
The pool was nice, it was a shame that it took until about 2 for the sun to be fully on it and there is limited space aswell but we mainly went the beach so was never a problem.
I recomend this to everyone who is up for a party but you have to go to all the main clubs, there worth every penny!
