Ibiza Weekender has returned to UK tv on ITV2 channel which has created a backlash from some of those that know and love the island.

This year we were lucky enough to visit Ibiza in May, June, July, August and September although sadly not in one go, it was split over 3 fantastic trips totalling almost a month on The White Isle.
