The 493-room Hard Rock is -- along with neighboring Ushuaïa -- one of a handful of true luxury hotels in Ibiza. With its 16,000-square-foot spa, indoor and outdoor pools, rooms and suites with swim-up pools, five restaurants, Fender guitar rentals, curated playlists, and a Michelin-star chef, the Hard Rock draws a bevy of celebrity guests and well-heeled couples. Although it can be loud and party-oriented, it's also kid-friendly, with the Hard Rock Roxity Kids Club, a nursery, and playground. The property, located on Ibiza's largest beach, is visually arresting, and rooms are among the most stylish in the area. Be aware that planes can sometimes be heard landing at the nearby airport.
A party hotel popular among celebrities, couples, and families
Playa d’en Bossa is known for being home to some of the world’s -- or at least Ibiza's -- most famous nightclubs, and swanky Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza, which opened in mid-2014 to become the first Hard Rock property in Europe, not only regularly throws popular pool parties but also offers a location within walking distance of Ibiza’s top night spots.
Although the music theme is obvious in some areas (think lots of memorabilia, tiny guitars embroidered on pillows, and a room service menu that includes Fender guitar rentals), it's less conspicuous than in other Hard Rock properties. Bright pops of colors, stylish furniture, custom-designed wallpaper, and clean lines make common spaces and rooms contemporary and sleek.
Hard Rock Ibiza is mostly popular with couples and groups of young people, but the hotel is extremely family-friendly, and offers activities for kids of all ages, with a kids' club and pool, teens’ area, and playground.
Right on Playa d’en Bossa, near world-famous Ushuaïa, Bora Bora, and Space clubs
The hotel sits on a sandy stretch of Playa d’en Bossa, Ibiza’s longest beach. Ushuaïa -- easily Ibiza’s most famous hotel and club -- is located right across the street, and Space and Bora Bora, also well-known party spots, are within walking distance. There are several other luxury properties around, and a number of restaurants and bars are within minutes of the hotel. The airport is a five-minute drive away (expect to hear some plane noise), and the town of Ibiza is less than 10 minutes away by car, or 20 minutes away by bus.
The Hard Rock's 493 stylish rooms are decorated in metallic tones and bright pops of color. Custom-designed wallpaper, laminate floors, mood lighting, silver-colored couches and armchairs, and black-and-white accents make the rooms appealingly trendy. Open bathrooms have frosted glass-enclosed WCs (toilet areas) and showers with rain showerheads and peach-colored mosaic tiling, with huge mirrors over one or two modern sinks. Rooms come with free Wi-Fi, 42-inch flat-screen TVs, minibars, iPod and iPad docks, signature bedding, and electric kettles with free tea and coffee. Some rooms have glass-enclosed whirlpools overlooking the ocean, and Swim-up Suites get direct access to three private river-style pools. Most rooms have views of the hopping pool areas, but higher-category units offer expansive ocean views. All rooms have stylishly furnished balconies or terraces. Artwork, pillows, even ironing- board covers, are music-themed, but few other decorative elements scream “Hard Rock” here.
Five restaurants (including reputedly the world’s most expensive), two large pools, a huge spa, kid-friendly amenities, and free Wi-Fi
The pool in the main stage area is known for hosting hopping parties, but is also a relaxing spot to spend a lazy morning in the sun, with underwater loungers, umbrellas, swim-up bar, and hydromassage jets. Although it can be loud and busy, there's a kids' area with a slide next to the bar, as well as some loungers where parents can keep an eye on their kids. The other main pool is located closer to the Tower Building, and features Balinese beds and underwater loungers.
Overlooking the pool areas are most of the hotel’s five restaurants, which include a solid buffet (breakfast only), a tapas bar, and a snack bar. The Beach Club, located right on the sand, serves light Mediterranean cuisine, and Floyd’s offers standard bar food. The hotel also has a coffee shop, a music bar with live shows, and a rooftop lounge with expansive ocean views and a laid-back vibe. The Hard Rock's Sublimotion, an exclusive restaurant that serves an uber-expensive menu by star chef Paco Roncero (two Michelin stars) to a maximum of 12 guests per night, is the culinary highlight here.
The stylish Rock Spa has a lovely outdoor pool, several thermal pools (where guests get a discount), a wide array of body treatments, and salon services. The fitness center is bright and modern, with cardio- and strength-training machines, and spinning bikes. The party atmosphere and rock-and-roll theme should not put families off, as the hotel is surprisingly kid-friendly, with well-received kids’ and teens’ clubs, as well as a day nursery and a playground. Free Wi-Fi and free parking are also available.
