Ibiza Super Club

We all did it for a few years then we settled down got a real job, a mortgage a little one or two and the everyday humdrum began.

San Antonio Egg
As a party hot spot San Antonio or to give it its full name Sant Antoni de Portmany has a bit of a reputation most people holidaying on Ibiza would think it’s the last place to stay once you reach a certain age. However we would disagree.
We are a middle-aged couple and have been staying in the resort for the last few years with and without our little ones.
Yes it still has the party areas, notably a few streets just off the waterfront called the West End and of course two Super Clubs near the famous Egg but apart from these areas and associated hotels San Antonio holds its own as a holiday destination suitable for all.
