New and unique boutique hotel opens in Ibiza

Ibiza, the island that is constantly evolving, has added a number of new unique and upscale hotels this summer including Ushuaia Tower, Santos Ibiza Coast Suites and Destino Pacha Ibiza Resort... and now Ibizazen - a 13 bedroom boutique hostal within walking distance of Santa Eulalia. This converted 18th Century finca has a choice of room types including standard suite, pool view suite, garden view suite, superior suite and a large 2 bedroom suite which will sleep 4 adults or 2 adults and 2 children

Don't let the word hostal put you off... This high-end establishment has a pool, Balinese beds, an honesty bar and a late breakfast, so there is no compromise on standards.

We’ve rented a car from just about every car hire Company on the island – and in most cases we have been very disappointed.
