Really good holiday if your young and love clubbing!
2 guys 22, 23 stayed here for a week had an amazing time takes about 25 mins to walk to the west end but we didn't even notice the walk as we drank on the way to the west end! hotel was clean, rooms cleaned every 2 days,
staff are very helpful and friendly! Hotel manager is lovely he messed up a bit with deposit money when we arrived but when he noticed he made a mistake he sorted it out and gave us a 1L slush cocktail FREE very nice!
the reps can be annoying get them trying to sell you stuff all the time and get people knocking on your door wanting you to buy tickets! DONT!
Best think to do in Ibiza is get all your tickets online before you go, saves disapointment and you have a better idea of the spending money you have knowing your tickets are sorted! the reps were trying to sell us privlidge tickets for 30 euro each, we walked along the beach front near the west end later that day and they were giving them away for FREE! so BEWARE!!
hotel breakfast was toast tea coffee cheese and ham! Don't expect anything else but at 10am the food starts behind the bar and you can get cheap food so it okay, We were only getting into the hotel at around 8am when breakfast opened so cheese and ham toasties were great after partying all night!
wifi is avaiable around the bar, pool and reception no problems, sometimes if there's a lot of people connected you might find it difficult to connect but keep trying it does work.
pool is great cleaned every morning and durning the day the music the hotel plays is really good, chilled out dance then as the day gets on and it get abit later it pumps up to get everyone in the mood for the night the pool closes at 10pm and the bar shuts at 0000 but everyone normally drinks in there room until about 2/3
bar has cheap drinks
cheap store 2 min walk away from the hotel
24 hour security
absolutely no issues with this hotel its not the ritz but it got a nice pool cheap drinks room clean and air con avaiable for 4 euro a day :) I would defo come again great value for money and IBIZA is amazing!!!!!!

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!
