When you’re enjoying yourself on holiday, the last thing you want to be doing is watching your spending. But book yourself into an all-inclusive trip, and you won’t need to pay a penny extra for your food and drink. From child-friendly hotels to adults-only party properties, here’s a rundown of the best places on Ibiza to book your next all-inclusive break.
While certainly not the most upscale of hotels, this three-star property offers a pretty decent all-inclusive plan included in the rate. It covers all buffet meals, local drinks (including a few cocktails), and snacks such as ice cream and cake between meals. Particularly good for families, there’s also a free supervised kids’ club and splash pool with a mini water park featuring slides, cascades, and water jets.
Certainly at the larger end of the scale, the Grand Palladium Palace is also one of the more upscale all-inclusive complexes on the island. There’s pretty much everything here, including two huge outdoor pools, four restaurants, an adults-only luxury spa, and an endless list of activities to keep the wee ones entertained. Set behind Playa d’en Bossa also means beach access just steps away. The inclusive plan is befitting of the hotel’s five stars, with some premium-brand drinks and à la carte dining included.
An all-inclusive hotel that is a real hit with families, the Fiesta Hotel Tanit also has the bonus of direct access to the calm and shallow waters of Cala Gració beach. On-site facilities are super kid-friendly, comprising a kiddy pool complete with water slides, plus a poolside playground and games room. The all-inclusive plan comes as standard and covers all buffet-style meals (with some themed nights), non-premium drinks, and snacks at set times. Tour operators also put on free supervised mini-clubs, which are included in the rate.
Another cracking all-inclusive hotel from the Palladium chain, though this one is strictly adults-only. As well having all the facilities you’d expect from a four star resort hotel – big swimming pool, enthusiastic animation team, smart modern rooms – the quality of the buffet dining is particularly impressive, plus guests get one free à la carte experience a week. Not only that, unlike most all-inclusives, there are several premium-brand drinks includes together with some cocktails (though you still have to pay extra for top-shelf spirits).
Fresh from a 2017 makeover, this family-friendly all-inclusive option comprises 120 bungalows scattered around extensive pine-scented grounds. There’s certainly no shortage of facilities, with a free kids’ club (for 4 to 12 years), a splash pool with fun water features, plus a lively programme of activities and performances. All buffet meals are included, plus non-branded alcohol and soft drinks served across six bar, including one on the beach.
While the all-inclusive is optional at this three-star property, most guests choose the plan and enjoy a solid choice of buffet dining and unlimited drink. Certainly not haute cuisine, but offering some of the best value-for-money on the island, as well as no shortage of leisure facilities, evening entertainment, and child-friendly activities. Plus it’s a short stroll from the beautiful sandy bay of Es Canar.
Another child-free (over-16s) property, the Hotel Club Bahamas is also all-inclusive for all guests with a choice of four bars and two restaurant offering up free food and drink. Dining is both buffet and à la carte, plus there’s a large swimming pool and spa facilities. At 530 rooms, it’s also one of the largest all-inclusives on the island, and with a party-oriented vibe that appeals to the younger, up-for-it crowd.
