Some of the best hotels in Ibiza can also be found in this beautiful coastal city...
While the wooded hills of the north remain virtually untouched and the resorts along the glorious southern coastline of Ibiza draw sun-seeking holidaymakers, Ibiza Town sheds a new light on this Mediterranean Spanish isle. It's where the hip hang out when they're not looking good on the beach and where those looking for an Ibiza of old gaze at extraordinary architecture. It's where million-pound yachts moor up for the night and where cobbled lanes beckon visitors down them for a closer look.
Ibiza Town is the cultural heart and soul of Ibiza. Begin your love affair with her on your next holiday.
From budget hotels to luxury hotels that lure celebrity visitors, Ibiza Town hotels cater for every type of visitor...
Are you looking for a budget room in a “hostal” (a Spanish hotel offering cheap, cheerful and basic accommodation)? Or do you fancy splashing the cash and hanging out with the VIPs of Ibiza Town in the kind of five-star hotels that feature in fashion shoots for swanky magazines? Maybe something in between will suit you - somewhere comfortable to lay your holiday hat but with lovely views and a swimming pool in which to take a dip when the mercury rises. You've come to the right place to find a hotel in Ibiza Town to suit you.
Dalt Vila is the UNESCO-listed fortress and old town of Ibiza, where narrow cobbled lanes house hotels with character. This World Heritage Site is crammed with architectural loveliness - but don't expect hotels here to be of the sprawling variety with acres of grounds and a choice of swimming pools. Hotels in Dalt Vila instead offer a peaceful stay and bags of charm in the ancient heart of Ibiza.
If you're looking for huge hotels in Ibiza Town that feature bars, restaurants, swimming pools and sea views, you don't need to venture far from Dalt Vila. Just behind the historic 'upper town' of Dalt Vila are many luxury hotels, four- and five-star hotels as well as budget lodgings that still ooze style and elegance. You can get a very cheap room in Ibiza Town and still splash into a hotel pool.
For the ultimate in luxury, head slightly north of Dalt Vila to Marina Botafoch. You're still close to the historic core of Ibiza Town, but here hotels spoil guests with incredible views, top-notch service, and sublime accommodation. And most are tastefully cool, naturally. The marina is also a great location if you'd like to stay within walking distance of the selection of nightclubs that are located within the city, including the legendary Pacha.
There are pleasant beaches within easy walking distance of all areas of Ibiza Town, though the city has no beaches of its own.
