half term holiday in ibiza (marvell complex)
We have a prefect family holiday, the weather was fantastic considering we went early for the season. The pool area was kept clean and tidy, pools cleaned daily, barmaid was very friendly :) dining area had a very fast service so dirty plates were cleaned away swiftly, food was beauiful and always something for everyone, even my fussy eating 9 year old ate well for every meal. Inside bar staff were friendly but seems rushed off their feet and there seems to be lots of people there so in the evening there was often a 5+ minute wait to get to the bar for a drink. The lobby where the evening entertainment was held was often very crowded and every night we had to bring in table and chairs from outside so we had somewhere to sit so we could enjoy what was going on for the evening. Receptionists were perfect and always happy to help. Children entertainment through the day was fantastic thanks to Enrique, always found things for them to do I.e. face painting, model balloon making, bracelet making, water polo, etc... Both my children loved him, whoompa. He always provided a entertaining bingo game in the evening before other events like the parrot show, live music, reptiles, etc...
Only downside being was I paid for WiFi a couple of times for I could check e-mails and contact family at home, €2 for an hour but often the signal was either to weak and kept disconnecting or it would take ages to connect in the first place. There wasn't a first aid person on site while we were there but again reception staff helped where possible when a party member sliced open his toe.
All in all it was a fantastic holiday and I hope to be visiting you all again soon :)

Fab holiday in Ibiza
Hotel was really good staff really friendly had clean towels every day food was good something different all the time cocktails were really good to a different one every day pool was good but very deep in the shallow end go to pizza place next door it's part of the all inclusive your allowed to go once a week . Outside some nice bars went bowling really enjoyed that good for all the family . Enrique the entertainer really good with the kids not a lot of entertainment in the evenings unless u like bingo. Pool don't open till 900 which was good so did not have to get up to early for a sun bed. There was a few stag and hen party's there but they were no trouble all in all a good family holiday .

At first when we arrived we were a little unsure as the reception appeared to be a little dark. After checking in we went outside to have a look around. we went to look at the sea and were surprised by the fencing and found the gates were locked so we couldn’t get out, not a good start but actually this was to stop people from outside from wondering in and in all fairness there wasn’t much reason to go there as there wasn’t any beach as such.
After that everything turned out fine, the hotel was lovely and clean the food was very good with plenty of choice of hot and cold dishes, everything was plentiful and every day there was fresh fish cooked to order. At first I thought the evening meal was a little late at 7.30 but by the time you had finished your lunch at 1.30 you wouldn’t have wanted to eat any earlier. We were all inclusive for the first time and would recommend it here, we couldn’t find fault with the food. Other people who were self catering wished they had opted for the all inclusive. The drinks were available all day and we never had to wait to be served and this was high season.
We never had any problems getting a sun lounger around the pool which is by the way deep with no shallow end but there is a separate small pool for toddlers. I’m not a confident swimmer but a lot of people used inflatable lilos/floats etc so I didn’t look out of place using a float.(I have promised myself swimming lessons now so that next year I will have more confidence in water)It was my daughter watching me rather than the other way around.
We asked the hotel for a packed lunch as we were going out for the day which came in a large picnic box, quite amusing but there was plenty of food in it several cobs including ham, salami and cheese then fruit, biscuits and water. Basic but good and again plenty of it.
Nigh time entertainment was basic but if you wanted more you could go out to the bars which there are plenty of on the road behind the hotel, but we were happy with what there was.
Overall I would go back, the area and the hotel was all in all very very good.
