Looking for the best sunsets in Ibiza

Flavours, entertainment, music and landscapes. All these and much more in Ibiza. It’s a popular romantic and party tourism destination, but it also offers other lovely experiences like the excursions to Santa Eularia, the shopping days at the hippy markets or the tours to the best sunsets in the island.

It has been considered one of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean due to its amazing views, beaches and cliffs. You should watch the best sunrise and sunsets while you drink a glass of wine.

Here’s a list of some of the best places where to admire the best sunsets in Ibiza, so we don’t get lost.

Benirras, the best sunset location in Ibiza

 Sunset in Benirras

Sunset in Benirras

Many people consider Benirras sunsets as a unique natural scenery which can’t be compared to anything else. This small Benirras cove is really popular for those called sunset hunters. Sunsets in Benirras attract hundreds of people around the world. Drums, timbales and torches liven up the party as Ibiza style.

San Miguel beach terraces

Our second suggestion is one of the most important hotels in Ibiza by the hotel chain Ole Hotels, Ole Galeon Ibiza Hotel, a four star hotel at San Miguel beach with spectacular sea views (like if you were in a luxury cruise).

Apart from its privileged location, the services of Galeon Ibiza Hotel are perfect for sunset hunters, like the solarium terrace, the sea view pool and the Adults Only chillout area.

Cala Conta, a relaxing and peaceful place

Cala Conta is the perfect place for those who want to enjoy Ibiza sunsets without the crowds. This cove has two beaches in the west side of the island and a fabulous beach bar playing relaxing music and offering exclusive cocktails, making your holidays a memorable experience.

Ses Salines Natural Park

The last stop in our tour across the most beautiful sunset locations in Ibiza is Ses Salines Natural Park, a place with an amazing natural beauty and an interesting local fauna and flora.

Fun hotels in Spain?

They are a real option. And they are becoming more and more valued amongst travellers. Fun hotels, most of them designed for children, for youngsters and groups of friends, are beach hotels located in famous destinations that normally offer direct access to the beach and important tourist attractions.

They are a real option. There is such a wide variety of fun hotels available that you can even find some of them with private theme parks in the resort, such as the Sol Katmandú Park in Magaluf or the Picapiedra Hotels, of the same hotel chain and located in almost any first class tourist destination: Majorca, Minorca, Canarias… These last ones have been operating for years and they stirred up the traditional concept of hotel for families, incorporating special services for children and activities devoted to children’s entertainment and parents’ relax.

Hotels with friends in Spain

Hotels with friends in Spain

Apart from Sol Hotels, the portfolio of fun hotels for children and friends has grown with new incorporations, such as the Olé Hotels; some Petit Palace urban hotels, which have bet for family rooms in Madrid and Barcelona with bunk beds, Internet and video games; hotels in Majorca, such as the THE FERGUS Resort and some hotels of the chain Garden Hotels.

The concept of fun hotel varies, of course, depending on the public to which it is addressed. Thus, the family hotels that have entertainment as a hallmark try to combine the calmness adults need with the energy of children. In the case of hotels for youngsters, the idea is clear: services related to partying, to the beach, to DJ sessions, live music, cocktails and restaurants open 24 hours and offering brunches at any time of the day.

In this second group, we can include some of the hotels for friends, although we find a category with the same functions but not so bound to partying and music. We are talking about the Adults Only hotels, which offer activities for couples and for those who, travelling as a group, want to enjoy the destination, the sports, the experiences and even knowing new people in the hotel.

Tenerife, the great capital

Santa Cruz, Tenerife

Santa Cruz, Tenerife

Although it shares the title with Gran Canaria, Tenerife is the most crowded, visited and famous of all the other islands. Hotel areas like Costa Adeje, where you can find some of the best resorts in Tenerife, aside from small traditional villages that give a special atmosphere to this areas.

Olé Hotels opens the doors of the new 21st century holiday resorts

Fresh, amusing, very complete and exceptionally located, this is how the new holiday resorts created by Olé Hotels are. With hotels in Lanzarote, Tenerife and Ibiza, its name has strongly grown in the last years designing a renewed concept of family resorts, changing the traditional model for a wider offer, more specialized and focused on providing fun and rest for kids and adults as compatible as possible.

All the Olé Hotels, including its resorts in Tenerife and Lanzarote, and its resort in Ibiza, have gotten support from their guests with excellent reviews on reference websites such as Tripadvisor. (By the way, the hotel’s director himself answers the reviews and opinions).

Generally, they are very positive opinions from people that travel with family during high season and from couples that travel in spring or autumn.  They all agree on standing out the cleanliness, variety of breakfasts and quality of restaurant products, as well as personal attention and small details such as welcome drink during check-in, chocolates, high quality amenities…

Although the traveller profile is usually a middle aged foreigner with children that spend one or two holiday weeks in the islands, there are a considerable number of Spanish travellers who prefer these new family resorts. They especially value the quietness, gastronomy, view from the room, price and services for children (pools, mini club and playgrounds that strictly meet the safety standards and include instructor’s attention and accredited entertainer).

Some of the most usual reviews are about the fact of not being new, but refurbished hotels, with which they have wanted to revitalise touristic areas such as the family hotels in Costa Adeje or Ibiza that aren’t usually up to date in these terms.  In this case, it is truth that the refurbishment has been focused on design and some services, but there is not a structural reconsideration of the entire establishment, and they have not built new and big spaces on the current ones.

In fact, their renovation is more about concept: the experience that you can enjoy in Olé Tropical Tenerife is very different from what this hotel offered before being refurbished. Its spaces are the same, its location too, but the change is more than evident. All its rooms in Costa Adeje are spacious, bright, with new furniture; swimming pools are modern and safest, adapted to adults and children in order to preserve the quietness for adults and fun for kids; buffets are oriented at healthier dishes, standing out fresh products and offering options for all tastes, ages and needs.

Besides the price, the advantage is the quality of the attention and the complete service they offer. In any of these hotels for families and couples in Lanzarote, Tenerife and Ibiza you can assure a quiet holiday with children, without starts, enjoying the destination and the comfort of a complete experience in the same place without complications.

Summer holiday offers can be already checked online on the sites of every resort, guaranteeing the best price online, since if you book through their websites, you don’t have to pay any intermediary because you book directly with the hotel.

Olé makes its début in Lanzarote and Tenerife

The new line of family beach resorts Olé Hotels has started to manage two complete hotels in Lanzarote and Tenerife, respectively, consolidating the Canary Islands as one of the best equipped destinations in Spain for those travelling with family to our country.

Location and services, along with a thoughtful personalized attention –not very common in this type of hotels– have shaped an interesting offer: these resorts are specialised in travellers with children wanting holidays to rest on the banks of a good beach and to make the most of their accommodation.

Hotel becomes the main figure of the stay, beyond the destination: activities, entertainment, facilities, cuisine. leisure, sport… The idea is to provide a complete and very varied whole to its guests, so they can enjoy their holidays without any worry.

Ole Olivina Lanzarote Hotel

Ole Olivina Lanzarote Hotel

Each one with its own characteristics but converging in general patterns. The Olivina Lanzarote Hotel, for example, is a hotel in Puerto del Carmen with wonderful outdoor pools, lounge area for the enjoyment of adults, miniclub and activities during the entire day for the little ones. Very appreciated for its exceptional location, one step away from Las Playas avenue, it offers one of the best price-quality relations in this area and special discounts on accommodation for children in Lanzarote.

Inheritance of the Riu chain, this accommodation has been made over and now has a very specific proposal, focused on children without leaving behind the adults. It has a traditional and simple style, and complete services: from the typical buffet restaurant to a detailed program of activities for the little ones.

The Tropical Tenerife Hotel agrees with the previous one on this philosophy, but, in this case, it is more oriented to travellers looking for a touch of modernity and a distinctive design: the impressive rooms of this resort in Costa Adeje boast spaciousness and brightness, decorated with white and purple tones, with Nordic and minimalist style furniture.

Common areas are very similar to those offered by the Olivina Lanzarote Hotel: pools, buffet restaurant, cocktail bar, miniclub, children entertainment program, gardens, car park…A classic beach resort in Tenerife with a plus of modernity and All Inclusive service.

In this sense, the Olé Hotels’ portfolio is targeted at a clear sector: families with children in beach destinations. In the near future new hotels will join this tendency, all of them under the umbrella of the sun and beach tourism.
