Can Jaume is set in the little known area of Puig d’en Valls, a mere 10-minute drive from the airport, five minutes from Ibiza town and just a stone’s throw from Pacha and a short drive from Privilege, Amnesia and many beautiful beaches.
The hotel was originally an old dairy farm, refurbished and renovated about five years ago to the modern, country manor standards of today. The rooms and bathrooms correlate with this – country style décor and plush couches contrast with brand spanking new bathrooms to my delight because, despite the fact I love rustic hotels, I still want my bathroom to be spa-like when on holiday. All rooms have a terrace or porch and all the mod cons you can think of.
There’s a lovely big communal living area, which gave me the distinct feeling that I was staying in one giant villa. I felt really at home here. The walls are adorned with art by German artist Hermann Ueberholz and there’s a big fireplace that creates a cosy atmosphere in the cooler months.
Eating and drinking
Breakfast is served from 8.30am to 11am, and initially I was a bit worried as there’s no official restaurant on-site (I do like a snack by the pool you see), however I was honestly overjoyed with the selection of cakes, fruit, snacks and tea and coffee on offer all day, all included within your room rate too.
Lounging by the swimming pool here is how I liked to spend my mornings, with plenty of time spent alternating between laps and a relaxing soak in the Jacuzzi. Check out the sunbathing island in the centre of the pool - post clubbing bliss.
The staff seem a little scarce at times. However, once you manage to locate them nothing is too much trouble.
Who stays there
International fans of sister hotel Ocean Drive; older and more mature British clubbers looking to retreat to the country by day.
