Ibiza is a very popular beach destination, so it does not lack 3- and 4-star hotels on the shoreline. However, you can go ahead and mentally subtract one star since it is given for the proximity of the beach and the "brand" of Ibiza itself. Just like with any other destination, independent travellers who resolve to rent an apartment on Ibiza instead of a hotel room will get a lot more comfort for the same amount of money. Plus, for those visitors who want to enjoy not only the sun and the beach time, but also excellent nightlife that Ibiza is famous for, Ibiza apartment rentals offer even more advantages.
Consider the following: the majority of hotels are found close to the beach, in the resort area. To get to the clubbing area, you will need a taxi which is impossible to hail and possible to order, but it may not arrive on time or at all. Staying in the cities of Ibiza with taxi parks is much more convenient, not to mention cheaper taxi fares. Cities have fewer hotels, but more locals are willing to rent their apartments on Ibiza to tourists.
It is also quite possible that clubbers will bring friends onto the island to enjoy the parties and great DJs together; in this case, an apartment rental on Ibiza that has several bedrooms is much less expensive than several hotel rooms, and yet infinitely cozier.
Furthermore, if you actively participate in clubbing activities at night, likely you do not need all the hotel perks (like breakfast between 7 am and 10 am, fitness club access) that are included in your overpriced stay. Therefore, while planning your trip, consider all the advantages of an apartment rental on Ibiza.
