Epic Stays
by Matador Creators Jun 29, 2023

For those wanting to skip the package holiday mega-club scene of Europe‘s party island, Ibiza, you’re in for a treat. Upmarket travelers have been relishing in the quieter parts of Ibiza for decades. This has resulted in an array of chic boutique hotels and has drawn some heavy weights in the hotel industry to invest in pockets of the island. Couple this with restaurants such as Nobu Ibiza Bay and the epic eatery at 7Pines Resort, it’s easy to see why a vacation here might land you rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous. And although this comes with a somewhat hefty price tag, you can opt for a shoulder-season trip and enjoy the stunning natural beauty and boutique shopping without the crowds and for a lot less. Choosing where to stay is essential and if you’d rather avoid the high-rise hotels on main drags, here’s some of the best Ibiza hotels for a Spanish vacation to remember.

We hope you love the Ibiza hotels we recommend! Just so you know, Matador may collect a small commission from the links on this page if you decide to book a stay.

When is the best time to visit Ibiza?

The best time to visit largely depends on what you want from your vacation.

If you’re interested in the island’s world-famous nightlife and clubbing scene, the optimal time to visit is from late May to early October. July and August are the peak months with the biggest crowds and the most events, but they also offer the highest temperatures, often reaching above 86°F.

However, if you’re more interested in a quieter, more relaxed vacation, consider visiting from March to May or in late October. During these months, you’ll still enjoy pleasant weather but with fewer crowds. This is also a great time to explore the island’s natural beauty, its beaches, and historical sites without them being overrun by tourists.

7Pines is a sprawling five-star resort on Ibiza’s west coast. The resort was a long time coming. It’s brought some of the best facilities, impeccable service, and offers spectacular views of the island’s most famous landmark, Es Vedrà and of course, the sunset. The resort is a low-rise traditional-style village, with mini villas and swim-up pools dotted around a dramatic clifftop. Supreme relaxation is the name of the game here, the complex is so large and packed with things you do, you might find yourself staying within the resort for the entire vacation. The aforementioned restaurant, The View, has quickly become one of the Ibiza’s hottest eateries offering modern Asian cuisine. It’s not cheap, with dishes such as Kagoshima beef costing over $100, but the cookery is outstanding, as it the view. Overall, 7Pines is worth the hype.
