Beds can get a bit uncomfortable and rooms are hot due to no air conditioning but you can hire a fan.
Food was good something for everyone to enjoy - not fancy as this would push the price up but we ate fine.
Location great on the flat and right in the middle of Es Cana.
Pools cleaned regularly - snacks in the day very nice.
Drink prices in the hotel ok not as pricey as outside really.
Entertainment good and finishes at 12.00 midnight.
Yes would go back to this hotel - did everything it says on the tin !!!

Es Cana anyway is a lovely region, and I felt sorry for those who just lazed around the pool all day doing nothing but sweat in the sun--when if you just walked 20 minutes down the road past the hippy market area, you could find the most gorgeous quiet secluded coves near a great campsite area and another great beach. Also if you walked in the other direction past the main beach for 20-25 mins you can reach another excellent beach with great waves.
The Hotel food was terrible and on the penultimate day we actually saw what looked like a cockroach in the dining room which we weren't too happy about. We ate out after seeing that, but we had a lovely holiday. Sharpe were great who we saw on the Sunday eve and some of the other entertainment was pretty good too (I didn't expect much at all for 2 star!).
Anyway, I'd recommend it as a base but they need to sack the chef and install air conditioning in each room, then it will be way more comfortable. Many nights I had to get so drunk that I would pass out in order to have uninterrupted sleep...and I would no way recommend doing that!
Hope this is helpful, especially the bits about the nearby beaches worth exploring!

There are some bad points granted!
I think the Hotel is in some desperate need of new caterers! The ones they have right now need shooting for thee lack of creative flare!!
Definantly bring money to eat out if you are going to be staying here as the food gets VERY BORING even after just two visits to the place!
I read one review about ear infections and am soory to say this is still a case! 3 children we heard of came down with this infection whilst we were staying there so yes the pool although a nice temp to swim in needs to be better cleaned!
The rooms.....NEED AIR CONIDTIONING! THE PLACE IS LIKE A SAUNA IN THE HEIGHT OF SUMMER!
Although VERY VERY clean and well look after they need modernising, although I have heard the Lady who owns the hotel will be doing this in the winter of 2008 so hopefully when I next visit it will be done!
I am not going to complain about the noise as when we were there there was no noise! There were only younger children there and no drunk teenagers and the only time they were making noise was during the hours of entertainment which finish's at 12am! If you go to Ibiza and are in bed beofre then IBIA is not for you Im affrad or at least a hotel with its own entertainment, go to the Panormama GOLD hotel over the raod for the 60+ if you do!!
The staff at this hotel are A* they are VERY VERY friendly and would bend over backwards to help you! They truely are on the nose for customer service and pat on the back is needed!
I think that other than those I have spoken about this Hotel is a very nice hotel indeed and upon the 6th time I have stayed here Im already looking to book my 7th!
ANFORA PLAYA IS A 2* HOTEL NOT THE RITS! You pay for you get people!!!

The food was only avarage, we managed to eat at both breakfast & dinner but if you are a fussy eater you would struggle to find anyhting half decent to eat, my children lived on chips& gravy and ice cream for the whole week, not acceptable really as this holiday although not the most expensive was not the cheapest either so the food should of been of a higher quality.
The noise in the hotel was unbeleivable, I am a heavy sleeper and I was still woken at stupid hours like 0300-0400 am with other guests screaming, shouting, swearing,arguing,smashing glasses, throwing each other into the pool, the list is endless, the night staff failed to deal with this night after night so it was allowed to continue - this was what put me off the most - I would not return to this hotel, my own safety & the safety of my family is paramount and I felt quite vunrable so please be warned !!

Food was good cooked brekfast cereals continenal.Evening meal was good also soup salad bar and adults and kids meals.
There was a daytime and evening enterainment programme run by Toni which was good and there was always different entertinment each night.
Only downside not much for our 18month old to do but swimming pool was a hit.
Ask for a room at the back or side of the hotel as it is a bit quieter we never had any problems that we mentioned in the previous report.

Spent quite alot of the time in the room could do with updating and perhaps a Tv. The food at breakfast was good always something to find. But in the evening the meals we were not that good, especially if the chef was cooking on the grill would only turn the meat once, which was usually reddy in colour.
The soup was always excellent. The entertainment team Ana and Tony were excellent during the day and evening. Happy hour is a joke normally you get 2 for price of 1 but in the Anfora Playa 1/3rd off drinks and they are expensive.
Enjoyed the time we spent there but would go there again, reception told us we had a sunny room we were in the front no sun at all.

DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES STAY HERE IF YOU HAVE A SMALL CHILD WHO DOES NOT REACT WELL TO EXCESSIVE NOISE

The first week we could get a sunbed easily but the second week we were sat waiting until 9.40 for them to clean around pool area and open the gates. I cant say that I seen them actually clean the large pool which was why so many were coming down with ear infections. Both my children had the infections in both ears.
The hotel could do with a complete makeover and add the all important airconditioning. never would I go back again, its only good if you need to lose weight.
