Where to stay in and around San Antonio Bay, Ibiza: high end to budget

Let us help you choose the perfect hotel for your Ibiza holiday

The Low down

Boasting a long sandy shoreline, with clear sparkling waters, San Antonio Bay is a popular destination for families and those wanting to be close to, but not right in the wild side of San Antonio. The beautiful coast is naturally carved into cute coves, along with the hotels, restaurants, and beachside bars, which add to each one's unique vibe. 

Take just one step back from the sandy shores and you’ll find a long and diverse parade of dining and refreshment spots, along with a huge range of budget to high-end accommodation.

A recent surge in investment and development in the area has brought San Antonio Bay to the top of many visitors lists. With easy access to San Antonio Town by bus, taxi, and water taxi (top on our list of travel choices) or around a 40-minute walk along the promenade for those feeling energetic, it's the perfect choice for those desiring a calmer, family-orientated holiday.

The cash injection has given birth to cool, arty hotels, with well-styled interiors and big, bold exteriors that clearly show how the destination will develop. The classic ‘Ibiza pool party’ has not been copied from San Antonio instead, swish hotels with DJs, drinks and a laid-back poolside atmosphere have taken hold. 

There are many hotels lining San Antonio Bay. We hope to make your choice easier by introducing you to some of our favourites.

High End

Currently, there are no 5-star hotels on the Bay. Our selection is of those offering an excellent standard of hospitality.

Can Salia Hotel by Intercorp

Positioned at the Port des Torrent end of the Bay, Can Salia Hotel by Intercorp Hospitality Group lines the rocky seafront. The secluded gardens are home to individual villa apartments, while the hotel offers a range of plush suites along with a gym, spa, garden, and rooftop swimming pools. Their restaurant, the Taste of Salia, serves a delectable Mediterranean-styled menu that's sourced with conscious and sustainable ingredients and is a notable asset to this luxurious paradise. 

Paradiso Art Hotel and Grand Paradiso

The bubblegum pink art deco Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel and its glamorous sister next door the Grand Paradiso are Instagrammer's dreams. With the 'look at me' exteriors and sugar-sweet interiors, they’re a feast for the eyes. Each level of suite oozes style from bed to balcony, with many gazing out onto the artsy pool and sundeck below. To add the cherry to an overflowing cake of coolness, a tattoo parlour, art gallery, outdoor performance area, and poolside DJ are also in residence. Their slogan ‘Where art meets disco’, couldn’t sum it up more clearly.

Amàre Beach Hotel

A block away, the grandiose Amàre Beach Hotel Ibiza sits on the shores of the relaxed and quiet Bou Cove. Exemplifying the Mediterranean lifestyle throughout with its clean and crisp decor and light, bright suites and bedrooms - along with three sun-soaked swimming pools - it is a true getaway location. Boasting six restaurant and dining spaces, plus a rooftop terrace bar, there’s not a palate or night that couldn’t be catered for.

Las Mimosas Hotel and Spa

With its calm and elegantly styled grounds, Las Mimosas Boutique Hotel & Spa exemplifies its nurturing surroundings at the edge of the countryside. The pool takes centre stage, where palm trees overlook the poolside DJ and all-too-tempting cocktail cabin. Plus Mimo’s Italian Restaurant is a must during your stay. The beautiful suites all come with balcony pool views or pool terraces, made for those wanting to be a hop-skip-jump from the morning dip, For those tempted to overindulge, the on-site spa, sauna, and gym will help you sweat any guilt away.


There is so much to choose from in the mid-range. We have selected those with the most character.

NYX Hotel Ibiza by Leonardo Hotels

Sitting upon the point of the promenade where San Antonio Town ends and the Bay begins, NYX Hotel Ibiza by Leonardo Hotels, has undergone a recent rebirth bringing with it a sassy and stylish attitude. Expressed through cool art-adorned walls and furnishings, plushly decorated rooms and a cute terrace pool that features pink umbrellas, resembling flamingos next to the blue sea horizon. Its ideal location means the bright lights of San Antonio Town could call just as loudly as the relaxing vibe of the bay.

Hotel Tagomago

Across the beach from NYX, Hotel Tagomago couldn’t get closer to the sea. A well-established hotel, its modern rooms, pool, and palm-fringed terrace blend perfectly into the enclosing beachfront. With so many beaches nearby, you can nip for a dip with ease throughout the day. Enjoy the live music events at night or sit under the stars in peace.

INNSiDE Ibiza Beach

Despite the towering collection of beautiful rooms, the fitness suite, beach access, and colourful decor all contained within INNSiDE Ibiza Beach, it's likely to be Rooftop Nine that grabs your attention. From here the 360-degree panoramic views capture the green hills and sandy shores of the bay, along with unrivalled sunset views. While you're encouraged to relax at the rooftop pool, the DJ and live music will no doubt coax you onto your feet.

Palm Star

Taking the energy up a notch, the management team at The Palm Star Ibiza has taken lessons from their previous projects and created another hot and happening destination for adults only. The hotel offers generously sized studios and apartments, along with a palm-fringed pool to catch the Ibiza rays and a pre-party vibe. Their overly enticing cocktail list is hard to resist, along with the renowned Thai-style menu, and the on-site club Sundara which hosts parties late into the night.

Axel Beach Ibiza

“Hetero-friendly” Axel Beach Ibiza is on a similar wavelength, with its colourful and chic styling, mirrored throughout the range of apartments and rooms. Part of the Axel Hotel Group, it’s a favourite with the gay holidaymakers of Ibiza. Full pampering is encouraged with the onsite sauna, spa and gym. They boast a large sun-drenched pool and a sandy beach front, that lines the hotel just a step away.

Romeo’s Motel & Diner

Capturing our hearts, Romeo's Motel & Diner has a Miami beach vibe to it. With Baywatch red tiles surrounding the pool and retro Americana styling throughout the rooms, it harks back to the good old days of the USA. There’s even a wedding chapel for those needing to declare their love and a 'Play Room' with a pole dance bar, leopard print sofas, and a DJ booth for the post-nuptial celebrations. Guests are also permitted to use the facilities at the Grand Paradiso, just around the corner.

Camelina Suites by Intercorp

Finally, we arrive at the Camelina Suites by Intercorp Hospitality Group, a tranquil aparthotel in Port d’es Torrent.
