On our return to Hostal Marino in July 2020, after a couple of years of absence, we came across a few changes.
The outside of the hostal had completely changed.
This, I believe, was for local legislation regarding balconies being made more secure and slightly higher.
But inside was the biggest change, the swimming pool was not there anymore!
This is because, the hosta, are building a new 27 room 4-star hotel in the space next door, which is taking part of the area where the swimming pool was. The new hotel will have a swimming pool on the roof and guests at Hostal Marino will be able to use it. There...
Jonathon Lipsin writes - This is my favourite side of the Island for swimming, situated on platja de Migjorn and where I used to live behind the Piratabus. I enjoying visiting this little chiringuito, La Franja after my swim.
A chiringuito is basically a wooden shack on the beach selling basic sandwiches, tapas, cold beers and wine
The people are friendly and the service is quick, unlike the more popular chiringuitos, like Bartolo's and Piriatabus at he other end of platja de Migjorn I can usually grab a table when I want.

Fresh from a recent overhaul, in quiet Figueretes, about a mile from Eivissa (Ibiza town) this uber chic Miami style art deco hotel is a great destination for Balearic chilling.
All rooms and suites have been upgraded.
With a series of pool parties and fashion events in high season packed with sexy bikini clad dance divas recovering on white sun lounges from the previous day/night excesses, please be aware this hotel is an over eighteens only fun place and is categorically not a family oriented hotel.
The Sky Bar rooftop terrace overlooks the UNESCO world heritage listed site Dalt Vila (the old walle...
This is a great little chilled hotel with something of a Ibiza and Bali vibe.
The rooms are scattered around the grounds, mostly situated around the swimming pool area, so best to visit when it's not school holidays, as it does get busy with kids then. Although the rooms are rather close, each has a sitting area outside. The pool area is quiet and relaxed during the day as many residents will be kitesurfing.
You use the footpath to get to the beach from the hotel that goes under the busy main road.
Playa Valdevaqueros is one of the best beaches in Europe and is full of surfers and windsurfer dudes.
