Eat. Sleep. Rave. Repeat.
Ibiza is the world’s original clubbing mecca. During the summer, holidaying ravers flock to the White Isle to experience the islands famous nightlife. Party animals are spoilt for choice with clubs hosting events day and night, 7 days a week, for 6 months over the summer season.
Often people will plan their entire Ibiza trip around a party itinerary, fitting in as many super clubs and pool parties before that inevitable flight home. We believe it makes sense then, in order to squeeze in as much dancing as possible to lay your head (if only temporarily) near clubs of your choosing.
There are many clubber-friendly accommodation choices spread across Ibiza, but the best ones are the ones close to clubs. Check out our round-up of party hotels below, booking one of these means you can fiesta like there’s no mañana!
Dubbed the ‘Home of the pool party’ the vibrant and lively Ibiza Rocks hotel venue hybrid is one of San Antonio’s most popular clubbing destinations. The colourful pop rock motif decorated rooms and apartments offer fantastic views of the poolside action. The best thing about staying here is that you can attend all of their parties with all tickets inclusive within the accommodation price.
Monday to Sunday you can experience their incredible summer events featuring residencies from Craig David, MK, Rudimental, Sonny Fodera and more. Need to stock up on some food for raving fuel? Ibiza rocks have you covered. Inside you can find a grill restaurant, pizza bar, lobby coffee shop and even an onsite supermarket, so any snack-hungry clubber can satisfy their cravings. We recommend trying the famous chicken pitta at Surfriders – its 100% delicious.
Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel
A masterpiece structure tucked around the San Antonio bay area is Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel. Suites in this complex have a 70s Miami-style inspired feel, complete with Smeg mini fridges and Marshal speakers. This aesthetic approach has rapidly made it one of Ibiza’s most instagrammed hotels. Around the complex you can find a hot pink swimming pool, art gallery, fashion boutique and tattoo studio, so there’s plenty to occupy your holiday time without even taking a step out of the lobby.
We imagine you’ll be wanting to venture the clubs at some point, so you’ll be pleased to hear that Eden and Es Paradis are a 10 minute taxi ride away from the hotel. We recommend you check out the disco and house jams of Defected on Fridays at Eden and then splash about at the Fiesta del Agua water party at Es Paradis on Wednesdays.
THB Ocean Beach
Gleaming in white, THB Ocean Beach is perched on the end of San Antonio beach. This adults only hotel is equipped with all the things that make an Ibiza holiday great. For those sun-seekers, Bali sun beds align a pool and jacuzzi complete with cocktail bar. If à la carte treats are your vice, then the onsite Bahía Bistro restaurant serves up tasty meals for bed & breakfast and half board clientele.
A stone’s throw from the hotel lies its original namesake daytime venue, the famous O Beach Ibiza Beach Club. Known for its VIP atmosphere and palatial open-air setting, sunny afternoon parties are often frequented by major celebrities. For the guests of TBH Ocean Beach, entry is completely free all week long. After the sun goes down, San Antonio’s bar strip, the West End,
Is only a short walk away as well, so you can party into those early hours.
Bora Bora Apartments
As aparthotels go, Bora Bora in Playa d’en Bossa is by far the most iconic. Opened in 1986, the venue’s wild beach fiestas have become the stuff of clubland legend. Today it upkeeps its reputation with parties powered by the hottest Ibizan talent, filling up its outdoor El Patio terrace with raving revellers week after week. With the hotel and venue also being situated on the beachfront, you’re only minutes away from palm tree laden golden sands.
The recently refurbished apartments are simply designed and well-fitted with a kitchenette and sofa bed. In the reception which is operated 24 hours a day you can exchange your money for euros, particularly handy before you hit the town in the evening. Bora Bora’s convenient location put it just around the corner from clubs like underground joint Octan and urban music haven, Swag.
Want to stay where the DJs stay? Then look no further than OD Talamanca. Over the course of the season this upscale hotel caters to many a famous face in the electronic music world, even hosting a segment of the acclaimed DJ Awards. For ibiza tourists it offers an upscale experience within the affluent area of Talamanca with the ritzy Marina Botafoch just around the corner.
During the evening you can enjoy four star service and cuisine, swim in your private rooftop pool or take one of the OD smart cars out for a spin around the island. We think the best night to venture from your hotel to the nearby glamorous superclubs is Sunday – which venue depends on your musical taste. Want cutting edge house and techno? Then head to Solomun + 1 at Pacha. If shamanic vibes and desert sounds are more your thing, try out Saga at HEART Ibiza.
Hard Rock Hotel
The Hard Rock brand is globally known for its memorabilia-filled cafes. In Ibiza, though, the main attraction is the towering Hard Rock Hotel, ideally located in Playa d’en Bossa. From this hotel fit for a rockstar, you too can feel like one whilst staying there with their range of brilliant facilities. From it re-energizing Rock Spa to it cutting edge Body Rock gym, there’s plenty onsite to keep you fit for even more clubbing.
During the evening, shoot up to the top floor of the hotel to experience The Ninth, their fabulous rooftop sky lounge, and its delicious signature cocktails. After your pre-drinks you’ll want to check out the buzzing nightlife, and there’s no better place than Hï Ibiza for a dance around, which is a few minutes walk from the Hard Rock Hotel. The ultra modern nightclub and its daytime sister venue, Ushuaïa, bring some of the biggest DJs to Ibiza – both venues should be on your holiday bucket list.
