We ate here a few times, and each time the food was piping hot, and presented well, as well as nicely priced. Allot cheaper than some SC places I have eaten in. We did not have to wait long at all for our food, even when it was busy you only waited a max of twenty minutes.
The staff were excellent, friendly as well as speaking perfect English and joining in. Entertainment was okay, but there was something on nearly every night, and once you had, had a drink or two it didn’t really matter.
It was a fifteen minute walk into Santa Eulalia itself, which for the time of year we went was still quite busy, but we never had to wait long again when eating out. We did find a lovely restaurant along the sea front, well priced, friendly staff and excellent food. It was called the Sol Marina and would thoroughly recommend a visit there during your stay.
The kitchen was very basic with a 2 ring hob (no oven) a microwave, kettle toaster, large fridge/freezer plenty of cupboard space, twin sink and little worktop area.
There was an ironing board, drying rail for towels etc, iron, safe and at an extra cost, hairdryer and onsite launderette. Take a tea towel, sponge and a small washing up liquid if you plan to cook as you will have to buy it and prices are high especially when you end up leaving it all there.
The staff are lovely with maid service almost every day bringing clean towels, the apartments are clean comfortable and spacious. No air con but bedrooms have ceiling fans which was adequate. There was evening entertainment most nights which the kids loved but be warned its a small bar area so you probably will get asked to join in much to the kids excitement. There is food available on site which we mostly enjoyed!
The pool is adequate and there are sunbeds and parasols ( if your quick enough in the morning ) people put their towels out around 8am although we only bothered about twice if you don't get a bed there are tables and chairs and a nice low wall around the pool to sit!
There was a supermarket almost next door that sells all you need and open till 9pm.
About a 10min walk (cutting through mangos bar) there is Bora Bora beach a nice beach although very stony towards the edges and very seaweedy with a couple expensive restaurants and a couple of bars! showers too to wash off the sand. so stick to the middle and take lunch ! There's sand and sea so the kids loved it.
There are a few restaurants around the apartments We ate at the cafe on the opposite side to the lighthouse restaurant they both do tapas (cant remember the name) and loved it! Although most people went into the main town of St Eulalia to what was called restaurant street where there was lots to choose from, i can highly recommend the Mexican!
Santa Eulalia is a 15 min walk (in the hot hot sun) where you will find a lively town, lovely beach and harbour plenty of shops, banks and restaurants, almost behind the town hall you will find the bus station where you can travel cheaply around Ibiza. I can recommend Ibiza town ( Elivissa ) especially the old town which was wonderful although i wish we had gone in the evening as it was far too hot to really explore and at night its all lit up and would have been fantastic!
Es Canar is a short bus ride in the opposite direction (1.45 Euros) and is far more an English resort with less expensive restaurants and a lovely beach, you can even get a sunday roast (we found out too late).
There is a little train that leaves and tours around to Santa Eulalia stops to let you look around then brings you back it takes about 3 hours and costs about 7 Euros for an adult as i remember.
Opposite the beach there are a few restaurants, one we ate in was lovely, that served a 3 course meal for 9 euros some Spanish some English food and not just the usual rubbish on offer for the kids either my 8 year old loved his squid rings! The other two had roast chicken and hubby had swordfish! (sorry if i sound obsessed with food but these thing are important).
Es Canar also has its famous Hippy Market on a Wednesday ( a little like Londons Camden if you've ever been) its a popular day to go and gets very busy!
You can walk the coast to Es Canar from the apartments as the rep will tell you but be warned it can get a bit treacherous (not suitable for the very young or old) and make sure you take some water (you'll need it) that said i loved it we did it twice once with the kids and mum (71, 9 , 8 & 5 and took us 2 & 1/2 hr ) just me n hubbe took 1&1/2 hrs with a stop for snack on the way! there are some wonderful views and 4 beaches on the way.
Just to address the road safety issues and the comment about dog poo.. We found the traffic to be perfectly safe there are two paths to walk we found walking on the left towards Santa Eulalia the best option! Although not convinced they have the same laws with regard pedestrian crossings so we just took it easy crossing the road! not an option walking to Es Canar too hot and too far! get the bus! As for the dog poo, maybe they don't always pick it up but no worse than England and at least it dries out quick someone must be keeping the streets clean because it wouldn't stay there long. overall a very clean resort!
Overall a fantastic holiday and would love to go again one day!

I would recommend this to anyone who wants a great holiday and a clean, friendly, well equipped apartment that starts to feel like home after just a week! :)
Im ready to go back now!!

The entertainment seemed less interesting this year - no fire-eater!!!! but the magician as funny as ever.
Location is okay, a walk into town, but as we are fit, the walk doesn't bother us. The taxi fare which seemed fair last year now seems expensive with the poor exchange rate but good bus service makes up for it.
Mangos beach bar acreoss the road recommended for good company and reasonable snack bar food.
Beach at Bora-Bora (Niu Blau) good, plenty of umbrellas, sunbeds and tress for shade.
Recommended for family holidays - been there with young children who loved it, still enjoy it now there are only the 2 of us, and grown up children say they would still love to go back

This we found to be very clean, tidy, spacious and well equipped, it included most things from iron/board to patio furniture. Towels were changed every other day along with general cleaning of apartment. Staff very helpful and polite. On site shop had limited stock with regard to choice of food but basics were all available.
We ate out most evenings but had to venture into town to do so as no other options within immediate area. Great variety of restaurants in town though.
Some of the on site entertainment was on the weak side but good enough to keep the young children happy and entertained. The main road next to the complex was busy/noisy between 8am and 7pm. The direct route to town/beach along the main road took us between 10-15 minutes to walk, whilst the coastal path from Mangos beach bar took twice as long but was worth it. Probably not advisable with pushchairs though. We also took the costal path back in the dark but as no direct lighting had to take more care under foot but felt completely safe.
Overall, as walking was not a problem for us we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at C'an Sanso and would recommend it for young families and for older parties who would only occassionaly want to venture away from on site facilities. I would not however recommend it for groups of young adults

Staff are first class lovely cant do enought for you.
about 20 min walk in to town lots of bars & resturants to choose from but we did prefer to get in taxi and go to Es Cana you can also get a bus 5 min walk to either town.
Food at complex very good and well priced had a few meals there but breakfast very good and snacks. Had to get up early if you wanted sunbed got worse towards end of holiday but there was aparty of 38 thery got up very early
5.45 on our last day bit to early for me.
Pool area is good and very clean. Cant fault the appartments and staff at all. Would rather be a bit more in the centre though i liked ES Cana would loike to stay there if i went back to Ibiza nothing to do with these appartments though they are lovely.
Beach is 15 or 20 min walk depending on wich 1 you go to or there is a rocky beach 2 mins away my son and hustband bought a rod and went fishing there you have to be very carefull though because it is rather rocky and there are some high drops in places.
All in ALL had great time meet great people and had great weather.
Appartments and Staff 10 out of 10
Location 5 out of 10

Complex Bar did a reasonable menu each evening. The special Paella (order the day before) was excellent.
Location is about 1 mile from the resort center. A flat walk along the main road. Good and wide pavement on the left with street lighting and apartments all the way. Even a cafe and supermarket half way. Took 10 minutes at an English pace and 20 at a Spanish amble.
Staff good and friendly. Emma in particular is a star.
Entertainment every night. Iffy quality and eclectic themes (Parrot show, Firewalking, Comedy? & Karoke etc)
Not for us but did seem popular.
Would visit again
