In quiet northern Playa d’en Bossa — an area known for being home to some of Ibiza’s most famous nightclubs — sits the hip Torre del Mar Ibiza Hotel. It may not be as hopping or party-oriented as Ushuaïa or the Hard Rock Ibiza, but it offers a good alternative for those who want to party at night and relax by the pool or on the beach during the day.
Decor is modern, with a gray, purple, and white theme throughout. The lobby is sleek and appealing, with strategically placed purple lighting; gray and purple couches; light-gray floors, and black accents over white surfaces. An area with beige and fuchsia couches, and shelves with plants and books provides a cozy spot where guests can gather in front of the TV.
Stone paths wind through fountains and manicured lawns with palm trees and loungers full of guests soaking up the sun. The outdoor pool is circular and not huge but is pleasant and relaxing, and overlooks the ocean. In the middle of the pool is the small ancient tower that gives the hotel its name (“tower of the sea”); it can be reached via a path made of round platforms placed directly on the water.
The hotel’s 217 air-conditioned rooms were all renovated in 2013, and now feature a stylish purple-and-gray palette, and silver accents. Large windows opening onto balconies furnished with a table and two or three chairs let in lots of light, and modern bathrooms, with large walk-in showers and a black-and-white color scheme, are clean and appealing. Rooms come with 26-inch flat-screen TVs with satellite channels, free Wi-Fi, and minibars. Superior Rooms have sofa beds and free non-alcoholic drinks in the minibars. Excellence Rooms — which include Penthouses, Duplex Deluxe, and Grand Suites — feature a couple of additional perks, such as large terraces with hot tubs, ocean views, and walk-in closets. Use of in-room safes requires a fee, regardless of room type.
The Torre del Mar Ibiza Hotel is located on a quiet, tiny street whose dead-end overlooks the beach of Playa d’en Bossa, Ibiza’s longest stretch of sand. The town of Ibiza is a five- to 10-minute cab ride away, and a ferry landing is within a few minutes of the hotel, where guests can get a boat to Formentera.
