OVERVIEW

Said to be the oldest hotel on the island, the Montesol Experimental l stands proud in Ibiza Town and still retains a tangible allure. The chic style naturally retains a very Spanish feel with imaginative interiors offering a contrast to the colonial style exterior. The Sabbaba restaurant is well worth noting.

OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

The hotel is set in the heart of Ibiza Town with its designer shops, bars and busy Port d'Eivissa. The Unesco-listed World Heritage site of Dalt Vila is only a few strides away from the hotel, while the airport is a 15-minute drive - all in all, it's a great base for exploring the island. The Museu d'Art Contemporari is worth checking out for its modern art collection; Dalt Vila is best in the early morning, or at sunset.

By plane: there are direct flights from London (2 hours 30 mins), Manchester (2 hours 50 mins). The hotel is a 15-minute drive from the airport. On-site parking is €45 a day. Book flights to Ibiza.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

As the hotel has been designated a Unesco Property of Cultural Interest, Spanish designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán has stayed true to the building's heritage. And he's done so with subtlety and panache, via cruise-ship-inspired interiors (circular mirrors and windows), white walls with contrasting black finishes and dark parquet flooring.

THE FACILITIES

This is not a hotel where you'd find a spa or a gym as it's limited in its options because of its heritage status, but, that said, the benefits lie elsewhere and come more in the form of the atmosphere, while the service itself is attentive and friendly.
