Ibiza has pulled in the party crowds for decades, but post-pandemic a different kind of atmosphere awaits. Much like Menorca’s most beautiful beaches, the turquoise waters that surround Ibiza are the main draw, making lazy beach days a must. After many trips to Mallorca and Menorca, it was my first time in Ibiza, but I was visiting for work rather than an adventure so I didn’t get to see as much of the place as I would have liked. I did, however, spend a few nights at Las Mimosas, where the pool and chilled location meant days were spent in the perfect state of bliss.

What’s the vibe at Las Mimosas Boutique Hotel & Spa?

Las Mimosas makes a good base from where you can head out across the island to explore. The location is away from the main tourist spots so it feels like a bit of a hidden haven and somewhere you can wind down. The low-rise main building and all rooms are painted bright white, and the outside areas are dotted with Scandi-style wooden furniture and bamboo canopies to protect from the sun. There’s an onsite spa where you can book in for treatments and massages, a Turkish bath, and a large pool area surrounded by palm and pine trees.

How are the rooms at Las Mimosas Boutique Hotel & Spa?

There are 17 bright white suites at Las Mimosas, mine was on the ground floor overlooking the pool and was quiet and comfortable. The hotel has a four-star rating which I believe to be fairly justified, however, I do think the word ‘boutique’ is overused in the hotel world. Some of the furnishings and fittings in my room felt a little poor quality and there was a dirty-water smell in my room for most of my stay. Las Mimosas hadn’t been open that long when I stayed so it could have been teething problems.

What is there to eat and drink at Las Mimosas Boutique Hotel & Spa?

While the food isn’t as good as tapas in Mahon, the restaurant Mimos does serve some pretty dishes that won’t disappoint. If you don’t want to leave the hotel to eat and drink, you really don’t have to, they serve croquetas and iberico jamón as well as various salads and a large selection of pizza. Cocktails here are decorated with herbs and flowers making them pretty and tasty. You can also order food and drinks to one of the relaxing day beds surrounding the pool meaning if you don’t want to move all day, that’s perfectly acceptable.

Breakfast was included with my stay and can be eaten on the shaded terrace—I found the usual selection such as eggs, tostadas and fruit plates with yogurt. Food and drinks are a little on the pricey side compared to mainland Spain but this is the norm in tourist-filled areas across the Balearic Islands.

Any highlights?

The pool here is the main draw and cocktails are pretty great. I did enjoy my stay at Las Mimosas, but when I return to Ibiza I’ll be hunting out a more remote, authentic or design-led place to stay, somewhere I little more like Menorca Experimental or Can Alberti hotel—two of my absolute favourites in the Mediterranean.

Anything they could improve on?

My room smelt slightly damp, and the food and drink prices seemed a little high.
