I am going to Ibiza for two weeks, end of july, beginning of August and staying at the Hostel Mar Y Huerta.
Last year I visited Majorca, Alcudia in September and really loved it.
Im hoping I will have a similar experience with Ibiza and Es Cana.
Has anyone here visited the Mar Y Huerta or have any comments on Es Cana itself.
Also, what will the weather be like??
Thanks in advance for your replies.
For that time of year, I think the weather is more or less guaranteed.
I ususally go either at the start or end of the season (May or Sept/Oct)
Never been to Alcudia so I can't compare, but I have found Es Cana to be just the right resort for myself.
It is very much family orientated. A few clubs, but nothing like to the extent of San Antonio.
Plenty of bars with their own entertainment at night.
Plenty of eating places for most tastes.
There is enough going on to keep people occupied without the excesses of other resorts on the Island.
It has a very good and safe beach.
Santa Eulalia is just a short hop away either by Bus, Ferry or if feeling energetic a walk along the coast.
Santa Eulalia has more to offer than Es Cana in terms of shopping and up market eating places.
Each Wednesday there is the Hippy Market at Es Cana and stopping in resort give you the advantage of getting there early to avoid the rush of incoming trippers from other parts of the Island. The resort does get very busy on Wednesdays.
Hope that is enough for you to be getting on with.
Have a good holiday.
cant comment on your digs but the resort is not as big as Alcudia, for us just right, plenty of places to eat drink shop and be merry most of the bars have entertainment in the evenings.
Although im not a beach person es cana has a good one but it did seem to get a little crowded at times
The hippy market gets extremly crowded and HOT so get there early!! and take plenty of water
I have just back from holiday and i stayed at the Hotel Mar y Huerta. I thought the hotel was very nice. The staff were very friendley and it was very close to the beach and some shops. The weather was fantastic so i imagine in july it will be very very hot! Es Cana is pretty quiet at night and is nore for families altough Charlies is a good place to go. Have a nice holiday
Was just wondering...do the rooms at the Mar Y Huerta have a ceiling fan or any form of 'cooling' device? Or if you can rent fans from reception?

I stayed in this hostel a couple of years ago. We enjoyed our stay - the hotel was very clean, food was OK - not a varied choice but well cooked. The rooms were basic but kept clean, bedding/towels changed regularly and the rooms did have a ceiling fan. The staff were very friendly, couldn't do enough for you.
The pool area was lovely, plenty of sunbeds (my two children had a lovely time) and the bar and cafe is popular with guests and passing visitors at night.
Hope you have a good time
