This was our 7th visit to this wonderful resort, and It just gets better year on year. This end of season ‘cheeky half term visit’ was sublime. The weather wonderful for the half term week. This year there are more staff to tender your requirements in their white/blue cooler uniforms. The choice of food has also improved immensely. Caviar for breakfast for the posh diners however I was satisfied with the poached eggs & omelettes. I couldn`t find any chillis or Jalapenos which i like so if thats my only food gripe then you know the rest of the food is amazing as always!!
The rooms have not changed much however still very comfortable and the beds make you drift off quickly... maybe something to do with the generous top brand GnTs consumed at the wonderful sunset bar.
Good to see so many of the previous staff including the reception manager Jana who provides a very high end professional service & looked after us and our travelling companions. She is worth her wait in gold and never disapoints... Thanks Jana!!!
We loved it so much we intend to visit again with more famalies & friends.
We always spread the word & this year there were 19 of us.
The down side.... The much loved 'T-Beach' is now renamed IVO & is a payable beach bar/restaraunt???
TUI & MANAGEMENT: PLEASE RESTORE THIS BACK TO THE ORIGINAL FORMAT!! IT WAS ALWAYS A GREAT PLACE TO GATHER AND MINGLE & MAKE NEW FRIENDS. IT WAS DEFINATLY A SELLING POINT TO THE HOTEL & GIVES YOU THAT 5 STAR EDGE. It felt like the new concept has been lost & the once loved bar is now a lost soul with no atmosphere or clientents..A real shame. Everyone (returning to this hotel) said the same thing so pleassssssssssseee bring back T-Beach, also a DJ in the afternnon would also be great (Like the old days) i mean we are in IBIZA & not sleepy town!!!
Apart from that Fantastic!!!
C ya next time team!!
Forget the negative reviews, I have been to many countries in the world, including all-inclusive and for kids this is a great for keeping the kids entertained with the last October sun. What paying guests forget to remember is; this is a really cheap holiday for everything you get, at a last minute October Half term deal.
If you would like to know the truth then please, please read on…
This is our 2nd year running and we will be coming back. From the day we arrived to the day we left, absolutely superb and well done the Sensatori!!!
I have to thank all, yes ALL the Sensatori staff, nearly 500 in all and if it was not for you all, I would not be writing up such a good review – well done!!!
We were so lucky when we arrived as the Thursday to Thursday was the last week of the season. To miss the downpour days before and to have such amazing sunshine throughout the week – we were blessed! I guess its pot luck with the weather, end of October but there is so much to do and the entertainment was great each day. Whether you stayed by the main pool, during the day, headed off to the beach (right on your door step) or headed up to the Retreat (Water park with archery, football and tennis – with food supplied at each location) you really were spoilt for choice. The evening, you could choose which restaurant to go to, an Italian, an Asian/African world cuisine or the buffet, which I have to say, as all inclusive, this was at a very good standard with Premium alcohol supplied. The kids food was great which included Nutella, yes Nutella so no screaming kids! ???? There is additional 25% charge at the Asian/African theme restaurant and at the beach bar but that is it! The staff also inform guest the extra charge so no hidden surprises!
Evening entertainment (well done all for busting some moves, hitting the high notes and getting the parents off their chairs) there is a kids club, obviously supervised and nursery, gym and spa for you fitness buddies. I have to say the gym is very compared to most hotels around Europe.
To get the best out of the Sensatori you really have to download their free app, which enabled you to book classes, see what’s on for the day and night, days/week ahead etc…
Friendly tip and this is not a complaint – bring your ear plugs if you are woken up easily early morning as the rooms are squashed in - be prepared for suitcases in the morning dragging by your rooms or early pitta patted feet rushing by to early breakfast. Leave your do not disturb sign on the door as the cleaners are very friendly and thorough.
The rooms are very clean, the hotel spotless and staff are on the ball with no language problems, not forgetting their Ibiza smile. There is a shop on site and one near the Retreat so if you forget water guns, snorkels, googles etc… you no need worry as all supplied at both.
To summarise: you would be mad not to try and visit the Ibiza Sensatori hotel in October for a last minute getaway. The weather was great, the guests, staff, food and entertainment were all fabulous. The food catered for all and you just CANNOT complain about a week’s stay away. We will certainly be heading back!!! Brilliant all and see you next year – thank you so much!!!
