Nearly a century of stories unfolding under one roof. An icon of Ibiza, a jewel at the feet of Dalt Vila. A Balearic gateway for Hollywood’s biggest stars throughout the 1950s, paving the way for peace & love in the decades that followed. Ibiza’s original hotel still stands. Spanning 33 rooms, a restaurant and rooftop bar, Experimental Group has reimagined the iconic hotel and the heart of Ibizan social life for centuries. Designer Dorothée Meilichzon designed the bedrooms with cool, calming colours & inspirations from Bohemian Ibiza. Cosmic elements, local designers pieces & a bit of sparkle. At our restaurant, café Montesol chef Alex Larrea infuses local delicacies with a touch of whimsy, concocted with produce from the area. Tapas style dishes for sharing, washed down with a cold beer or some of Spain’s best small producer wines. It's the embodiment of decades of stories, whispered from table to table.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had stayed at the Montesol before in December 2019/January 2020 (right before Covid hit) and it was a very pleasant stay, however since the refurbishment it’s on another level. The pictures on the website genuinely do not do it justice. The interiors are much more in keeping with Ibizan style, beautiful colours, and the interiors and textures have clearly been carefully chosen to create an inviting and slightly bohemian, yet luxurious feel. The staff were wonderful, the breakfast was delicious, the view from our room was a dream (it was my 20th visit to Ibiza and decided to go for the best room with the view of Dalt Vila to celebrate the milestone!) I was like an excited child every time I looked out of the window. Loved every minute of our stay.

The Montesol Experimental is an old historic hotel that has had a recent refurbishment in Ibiza town. For all of the hotel and accommodation options in Ibiza, there are few hotels in its category - a five star hotel in downtown area walking distance to the fort and all of the restaurants. The hotel was smaller than I was expecting - just 33 rooms. It had a boutique hotel vibe as although it's rated five star, it had no hotel facilities - no pool, no gym, no breakfast buffet and limited services. Our room was fresh and modern with a tropical/holiday vibe even if a bit basic. It was adequate as we didn't spend much time in the room. The best feature of the hotel is its location. Indeed, the hotel is expensive and the only reason for this is the location. The same hotel ten minutes away in a taxi would be half the price. We appreciated the location. The express bus from the airport drops you off just 100 metres from the door of the hotel. Same for the late night disco bus. You can walk anywhere you want in Ibiza town, and the bus station is a flat 10-15 minute walk from the hotel to get anywhere else on Ibiza island. Our favourite feature of the hotel was the rooftop bar which at sunset is spectacular. Even if you don't stay at the hotel, it is a nice place to visit. The hotel breakfast (cafe style) served in the bar on the ground floor was also nice. If I came back to Ibiza, I don't know that I would stay here again. Not because there is a problem with the hotel; rather how expensive it is for what you get.

Really nice, clean and spacious rooms in a very nice hotel. They have a lovely rooftop cocktail bar and a decent breakfast/coffee bar on the patio but by far the best part of our stay were the staff. They are so friendly and helpful and nothing is too much effort. A very enjoyable stay in a lovely hotel.

If you like walking, shopping, eating, people watching, central location, spacious hotel room than look no further- This place is very nice AND FOR THE PRICE! We looked at different hotels that were also nice but much more expensive. This has what you need and close to the taxi pick up, it's just great!

This place was obviously old but very well updated and appointed. Some might call it quaint. The hotel staff was very accommodating, professional and pleasant, and for the most part spoke English well which made communication less of a challenge. We had a booking discrepancy which necessitated a larger room, fortunately we were able to move into the two bed premier unit which by my standards was very nice. The AC cooled the room off exceptionally well, the windows and balcony doors were all new with double insulated panes and sound trim insulation. The balcony overlooked the square which tended to be noisy throughout the night but not so much that sleep could not be attained. Obviously this facility has no control of people in the square. The rest of the room touted a nicely decorated and well designed living space, and a ceiling fan that could really move some air, the bathroom was newly redesigned and also very nice. Plenty of hot water, not that we needed it in this summer 2022 heat wave. Parking was a challenge, we rented a car when we arrived and street parking was nearly impossible. Lot parking was 38e/night. The upside is with a receipt the hotel reimbursed that expense which was a pleasant discovery. Would definitely stay here again. I had zero concerns or complaints about this hotel. Side note for other Americans contemplating to rent a car or not. I suggest that you do. Parking, though not convenient but reimbursed makes it worth it and getting around the island via one of maybe three taxis would be crazy expensive and not worth the time standing around wasting. Driving is easy after you realize how the roads are laid out IE mostly one ways, the triangles on the road mean you yield at that intersection AND pedestrians ALWAYS have the right of way. Scooters and motorcycles will pass you up on the left and right so just keep an eye out. Once out of downtown Ibiza driving is much more relaxing and easy, the rest of the island is an easy and relatively care free cruise. The sunset at Cafe Del Mar is greeted with cheers nightly and an accompanying beat from the club. I would like to come back here again for a longer stay. A full month would suffice.

We had a nice one night stay at this hotel located conveniently for the marina and old town in Ibiza. At the moment the car park is not available so we parked about 400 metres away in a large open air car park. It is a bit tricky arriving with luggage as there are signs saying only authorised vehicles can go down the road near the hotel - we pulled over and then were helped to unload the luggage. We had one of the premium rooms which was spacious and nicely decorated. It overlooked the square so was noisy in the evening and first thing in the morning when the cleaning vans came onto the square. Breakfast was included in our rate but you are given a 25 euro allowance which is an odd way of doing it especially when there is only a limited choice. We ate at Sabbaba which was okay - there are lots of restaurants nearby. Overall this was a nice place to stay to see the old town but the room rate was very high in comparison with some of the resort hotels we stayed at.

Loved it here. Only stayed one night but the staff were amazing, service top class, Breakfast in the bar was a bit pricey but well worth it, and the rooms - wow. Everything just top quality - the sheets, bedding, furniture, bathroom, mattress, and actual king size bed, not 2 single beds shoved together (which is my absolute pet hate). The soaps/ moisturisers etc really top quality, can’t remember the brand but huge bottles of deliciousness! I’d have loved a bath but the shower was huge and amazing. Really liked this hotel and will be back.
