Gran Hotel Montesol Ibiza already secured its place in the history books as the first of its kind in Ibiza – and the pages of its storied life keep flipping, as the Experimental group of cocktail connoisseurs (turned empire of stays, restaurants and bars) take over to transform it. With a covetable seat by a main leafy square in Dalt Vila and a phenomenal reputation for Med elegance secured, they’ve brought their madcap cocktail concoctions to the roof terrace (with its best-in-island views), roped a chef with a passion for decadent Israeli cuisine into Café Montesol’s kitchen and modernised the art deco rooms. At heart, it’s still the stay where Orson Welles and Princess Caroline of Monaco checked in for some genteel respite, but with the hyped-up pulse of an Ibiza club kid when the beat drops.

Mr and Mrs Smith Bewertungen

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this pioneering hotel in Dalt Vila and unpacked their floaty daywear and glow-under-a-blacklight nightwear, a full account of their mostly sophisticated getaway will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Gran Hotel Montesol Ibiza? by the capital’s marina…

It’s hard to believe there was a time when beloved holiday hotspot Ibiza didn’t have a place for hedonistic revellers to snooze in after danced-away nights, but this was the case until 1933, when the island’s first hideaway Gran Hotel Montesol Ibiza opened its doors. With art deco styling, an expansive roof terrace with all-around views of the old town, marina and leafy promenading spot Paseo de Vara de Rey – plus elegant Café Montesol – it started at the top of its game and stayed there when the competition rolled in. It spent a few brief forays as a military barracks during the Spanish Civil War and World War II (lucky soldiers), but largely it was a magnet for celebs, royals (Orson Welles, Princess Caroline of Monaco and Pink Floyd are among the most notable) and guests with similar aspirations to spend genteel breaks, exploring the capital’s café culture, wine bars and historical intrigues with sojourns into the undeveloped countryside. 

And now, this Unesco Property of Cultural Interest has been taken over by the super-cool French Experimental group – the empire of chic hideaways, beach clubs, restaurants and bars that sprang from the Parisian cocktail club. So, you may see a few more sleepyhead club kids at breakfast. The balcony-studded, lemon-hued, neo-colonial façade and chatter from tables spilling out onto the terrace remains much the same, but now the rooftop will ring with live music as you work your way through a sure-to-be-iconic cocktail list, and the downstairs restaurant – remade over by group designer Dorothée Meilichzon – will serve Med-Israeli cuisine from the noted chef behind London’s Palomar and Paris’s Balagan. You can still step back in time in the rooms and suites, where Spanish designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán has restored rooms to their deco decadence in dark woods and luxe finishes, but with further updates planned, this is a stay that keeps innovating while remaining an important Ibizan landmark.

Informationen zum Speiseangebot


Café Montesol was a legendary figure on Ibiza’s gastronomic scene, where diners would surreptitiously celeb-spot from behind their menus and a jazz soundtrack would accompany gossipy catch-ups. But, Experimental have bowed to changing tastes with Sabbaba, a Med-Israeli restaurant headed up by chef Tomer Amedi, intended as a companion to the group’s Parisian-by-way-of-the-Levant eatery Balagan in Paris. The name translates to ‘no worries’, ‘it’s all good’ and ‘awesome’, which sums up the general easy-going ambience. Deco detailing remains in the intricate floor tiles, but mermaid-style, pearlescent-blue tiles on pillars, a Seventies-style long bar with rattan seating and a private ‘undersea’ cave to dine in make this a space with its own distinctive personality. It serves up delicious mezze plates, theatrical cooking from the open kitchen and fresh grills from the robata – plus punny names. Try the 'duck me twice on a Sunday' with duck, kohlrabi cream, harissa and Moroccan five-spice; or perhaps the lobster with preserved orange and almond butter, or the lamb-chop lollipop with mango-amba honey. The breakfast à la carte has some flavourful picks too, with green shakshuka, sweet croissants with quince paste and avo on toast with dukkah, tahini and a poached egg.

Top Table:

We’re taken with the little private-dining ‘cave’, which has miniature moons carved into the entrance and an under-the-sea feel, with shell sconces and walls encrusted with colourful shells, starfish and such.

Last Orders:

Breakfast is from 7.30am, lunch from 12.30pm and dinner from 7pm, but things wrap up at a late, late 3am. Take drinks on the terrace from 7pm onwards.

Hotel Bar:

Head to the hotel’s roof terrace to admire the neck-craning panorama of the mediaeval old town, marina and Paseo de Vara de Rey – it’s especially romantic after dark. The Experimental group started out shaking up exciting drinks in its Paris bar and it has gained a reputation for sourcing local and niche spirits, using the freshest fixings and concocting its own bitters, tinctures and such. So, expect the unexpected. Plus, there’s a lengthy list of Mediterranean wines.
