Either way, finding the right hotel can be a challenge, so we offer you our tips of some of the best hotels for the club closing parties.
San Antonio and San Antonio Bay
HOTEL PLAYASOL MARCO POLO I
Reasonably priced and very close to the action, the Hotel Playasol Marco Polo I is a three-star hotel in a great location – just 300m from the beach and in very close proximity to the bus station for the all night Discobus service to Ibiza and Playa den Bossa. Plus, you could practically fall out of bed and roll into San Antonio super-clubs, Eden and es Paradis. Great facilities are on offer here too.
THB OCEAN BEACH HOTEL
THB Ocean Beach Hotel is an adults-only hotel, also very well positioned, overlooking the O Beach club, and with a beautiful view back across the bay. Opening straight out onto the San Antonio promenade, all the bars and clubs are within easy walking distance and free entry to O Beach is a perk for the guests who book direct.
SOL HOUSE IBIZA
A clean and funky hotel, very popular with a younger clubbing crowd, at Sol House Ibiza you are sure to be surrounded by like minded hedonists who are also on the island to get the best of the closing party fun. Take the time to enjoy a cocktail on the rooftop bar for some of the best end-of-season sunsets, accompanied by great DJ sets.
Playa den Bossa
BORA BORA APARTMENTS
‘Ideal for those who come to Ibiza wishing to hit the ground running, these spacious apartments, perfect for clubbers, are barely 10-minutes’ ride from the airport. The Bora Bora Apartments are in a great position on the front line, within easy reach of the clubs. There is also a host of pool parties in its own small mini club. The famous Bora Bora Beach party bar will be bringing down the curtain with a closing party too, so look out for that.
Extremely popular with young clubbers Hotel Garbi, in the heart of the resort, has a fresh, minimalist interior design, extending out onto the pool terrace and the beach. The complex boasts a deluxe spa for a welcome rubdown in between parties, plus the adjoining SWAG Ibiza club is one of Ibiza’s premiere urban music venues, which will also be closing for the summer in style.
FERGUS STYLE BAHAMAS HOTEL
Located at the quieter end of the resort, Fergus Style Bahamas is an oasis of calm compared to some of its neighbours. Opening onto the sandy dunes and palm trees of the beach, this hotel is still very close to the action. Come here to relax and unwind in between club sessions around the pool or in one of the gorgeous neighbouring beach clubs.
SANTOS IBIZA SUITES/DORADO IBIZA SUITES
Santos Ibiza Suites (pictured) and the Dorado Ibiza Suites are both adults-only, theme aparthotels, on the frontline by the beach. Imaginatively decorated and with self-catering facilities in each room, you can choose where and when to eat. Guests in both places can party by the pool at Santos Ibiza Coast Club.
HOTEL MIM ES VIVÉ
Hotel MiM Es Vivé may have lost a little of its edginess and become a little more sedate over recent years, but the hotel still retains its classy art deco exterior and beautiful terrace bar and restaurant. It is perfectly located for either Playa d’en Bossa or Ibiza Town and has a great little bar/club in which to seek refuge or find fellow clubbers.
BOUTIQUE HOSTAL SALINAS
Just next to Playa d’en Bossa is Boutique Hostal Salinas, a charming and friendly adults-only hotel, ideally situated for the big CircoLoco closing party at DC10 on 7October. You are bound to meet interesting and fun guests and, when the finality of the season hits you, simply cross the road to the beautiful Las Salinas beach for the ultimate post-clubbing-marathon relaxation.

Both hotels enjoy beautiful views from their balconies or roof terrace bars, perfect to put you in the right mood before hitting the town.
