Right at the edge of the beautiful cove of San Miguel, the Club San Miguel is one of the three hotels that make up the San Miguel resort. An all-inclusive establishment, the clientele is mostly English. We really liked the beautiful lagoon-like swimming pool, including its layout and the decor around it, and the sports facilities.

Right at the edge of the splendid cove of San Miquel, one of the loveliest holiday resort spots in Ibiza, 12 miles north of the capital of Eivissa. The airport is located just under 16 miles away, or 30 minutes by car. A panoramic lift will take you up to the neighbouring Cartago.
Fitted with light-coloured ceramic tiling, the guest rooms are nicely decorated with two paintings, a mirror, a small wooden desk with a mini television, a chair, and white and pastel-blue walls. They all have air-conditioning, a key-operated safe (£2 per day) and Wi-Fi Internet access (ADSL is also available and there is a charge for both). However, there is no mini-bar or room service. A terrace furnished with a white plastic table and two chairs overlooks the swimming pool (or, for 40% of them, over the sea). The bathroom is equipped with a bathtub and a flexible shower, two bars of soap, shower gel and shampoo dispensers on the wall, a toilet and a hair-dryer.
Built in 1971 and renovated in 2011, the Club San Miguel is a member of the Spanish hotel group, Stella Polaris. It is a friendly-sized establishment with an architectural style that is typical of the region and which blends in better with the surroundings than the Cartago and the Galeon, whose architecture somewhat ruins the beauty of the site. It has 106 guest rooms in a white, two-storey, U-shaped building without a lift. A landscaped lagoon-like swimming pool in the middle, which meanders around among ochre-coloured rocks under the main building, includes a section with hydromassage jets and cascades. Dotted with islets and palm trees and open from 9:00am to 7:00pm, it is spanned by a small red-coloured stone bridge. Children have a 20-inch deep paddling pool reserved especially for them and will have fun going down the frog-shaped waterslide. Towels can be hired at reception for £1.50. The showers are hidden among the decor under a red rock. You will also find the pool bar, a pool table and the stage for activities in this area. The sports facilities, which include a beach-volleyball pitch, two tennis courts, pool and ping pong tables, and a vast playground for children, are at the entrance next to the car park.
Food and drink
Meals are served as a buffet in a room that can hold up to 230 guests. Some of the tables have a view of the sea beyond a bay window. However, the restaurant is very small and you have to line up for the buffet. Breakfast is served from 8.00 am to 10.30 am, lunch from 12.30 pm to 2.30 pm, and dinner from 6.30 pm to 9.30 pm. Snacks are served here as well from 11:00am to 12:00pm and from 10:00pm to 11:00pm. The theme nights are limited to meat night and fish night. For a bit of a change for dinner, you can make a booking at the buffet-style Chinese restaurant at the neighbouring Cartago. There is a choice of two sittings, either from 6:45pm to 7:45pm or 8:00pm to 9:00pm. Nestor, the butler from the Tintin comics, will greet you at the entrance. The dining room is decorated in a Chinese style, of course, and can hold up to 60 guests.
Located at the heart of the pretty cove of San Miquel, surrounded by fresh-smelling pine-covered hills, the Club San Miguel's protected beach is reasonably-sized, has crystal-clear water (you can see the fish swimming right up to the shore) and fine sand. The beach is equipped with showers, deckchairs and parasols (for which there is an extra charge). Peaceful, supervised and not too windy, you can practice many different water sports here (all for a fee) thanks to the sailing school, including water-skiing, banana boating, sailing, windsurfing and canoeing (this activity is free), or go out on the water on a glass-bottomed boat. Enjoy the setting as you drink some coffee or a nice glass of beer and even have a bite to eat in one of the restaurants or bars on the side of the cliff.
Open from May to October, the Club San Miguel, which has a very large English clientele, is part of a vast all-inclusive tourist complex that includes two adjoining hotels; the Galeon (reserved for Italian guests) and the Cartago, where most of the guests are French. The clients can all take advantage of all the facilities offered by the complex, including a gym and a multi-sport court. Don't miss out on visiting the Can Marca caves nearby or the cove of Beniras, where you can watch some beautiful sunsets over the astonishing 'Finger of God' rock. Every Sunday during the summer months, the hippie community comes together here creating a 1960s flower power ambiance with djembes, didgeridoos and even a bolas show: a beatnik ambiance guaranteed!
