Hideaway and relax on your Ibiza family holiday

The ME Ibiza is tucked away with the closest town Santa Eularia about a €30 taxi ride away. Although the chilled main pool is adults-only, parents can relax knowing that kids are away from any party action in their own secluded kids’ pool and kids’ club situated at the back of the hotel.

There is a small beach out front, and a short stroll will lead you to a larger beach on the left end side (next to Nikki beach), plus Sa Tenka on the right. Hotel staff have been known to provide balloons, sweets and toys to kids checking in too!
