"Lovely apartment - superb location!"
Situated in the heart of San Antonio, right at the bottom of the West End, you may be fearing the worst. Well, let me reassure you that Porto Magno is in a great location. My wife, 18 weeks pregnant, … More
Thank you very much for your kind review. I am so pleased you both enjoyed your stay.

Well after wanting to stay in this apartment in 2011 and being to late to book it, I made sure I got in early this year and it certainly did not disappoint!
We arrived late Sunday night and it was so lovely to arrive to beers and food in the fridge, such a lovely touch. The apartment was clean and tidy and very spacious for a one bedroom place. The directions that were sent in the post made getting there very easy and hassle free. It is obvious the owner and company take pride in what they do!
The views of the harbour are fantastic and it is a perfect location for the sunset strip and taxi rank. The bus station is just around the corner too.
I have been to Ibiza many times before and chose this apartment purely for the location at first, but would stay there even if it was far away! We actually decided to stay in on a few occasions and drink on the balcony, which is something we would never have dreamed of doing in Ibiza!
Lidl is quite near the bus station and is worth the walk to stock up on cheap beers to fill the fridge with.
Overall, loved our stay and felt like it was our own place, jealous I don't own it!! Will definitely return here and book again. My advice to others is the book early as it does book up quickly!
Thanks very much!
Thank you very much indeed for your kind words. Yes we do really care about looking after our clients but very much appreciate the feedback and I am delighted you enjoyed yourselves.

"Perfect location and really lovely apartment."
As every other review clearly states this apartment is in the perfect location, but I wasn't expecting just how perfect. Lovely views from the balcony over the harbour. Out of the front door a stones throw a way to the main bars/restaurants and the taxi rank is literally 1minute walk at the bottom of the street. Ideally located for shops/restaurants/banks and chemist. The apartment block itself is quiet and has a lot of local people living there who are all friendly and polite. We wanted somewhere where we were able to return to and relax in peace after partying hard and this was the ideal place.
Inside the apartment it is clearly well looked after. Living area and bedroom are both spacious. Kitchen extremely well equipped. Bathroom again is nice with a massive shower. The apartment has all the standard functions/features of an apartment with added extra's thrown in to make the apartment that little bit more special (ipod dock, tv, washing machine, hair dryer etc). Two large fans keep the apartment relatively cool and then the air con unit is in the bedroom/living area.
On arrival at the apartment there was a sort of welcome pack which included bread, milk, ham, cheese, beer, butter etc. This was a lovely touch and meant with us having a late flight we didn't have to rush out to a shop to be essentials.
The owners of the property and the staff who work for Birch properties have all been very helpful and timely when dealing with queries and enquiries.
Now leaving the best till last......the balcony. The pictures do not do this balcony justice. The most amazingly comfortable sun loungers in the whole world. And an equally comfortable table and chairs set with amazing views. What more could we ask for!!! I would definitely recommend this apartment.
Thank you for your very kind review, it is much appreciated and I think this type of feedback helps prospective guests make their decision.
I am very pleased you had a great holiday.

The appt is situated in an ideal location opposite the harbour and for those of you familiar with Ibiza, at the bottom of the west end strip. I often spent the mornings sat on the balcony watching the comings and goings of Ibiza life. Fab view.
The apartment itself is clean and well maintained comprising of a lounge, separate kitchen with utensils, bathroom, double bedroom & large balcony. There's also a washing machine which came in handy for freshening the towels and nice additional touches like a flat screen tv with integrated dvd player, iPod dock, hair dryer, everything really to make your stay feel as homely as possible.
I enjoyed my stay and would definitely stay there again. It would suit couples looking for a quiet time as well as those interested in the more vibrant aspect of the island due to the close proximity of the strip, taxi rank and the short walk to cafe mambo and the fab sunset bars.Have to say that I'm past those clubbing days but spent most nights wandering up to mambo to sit and watch the amazing sunset with a cold beer....heaven.
Have to mention a great cafe a few minutes away called Rita's and a lovely restaurant called villa Mercedes again a short walk away ....conveniently on the way to cafe mambo and the view of the sunset.
Would highly recommend this appartment.
Thank you very much for your kind review. I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay. Anne

"Excellent location. perfect place to stay"
This apartment is in the perfect spot, It is close to everything from bars & restaurants to the bus station, taxis, supermarkets & beach.
It has everything in there that you need along with a perfect view of the harbour. The owner is very helpful when you contact her and she always responds to every request very quickly.
The building itself is very quiet and definately not for you if you want to party in there.
Thank you for your very kind review, it is much appreciated. Anne

"Beautiful apartment with a stunning view"
I stayed in Porto Magno with my partner at the start of October. We are both in our late 20's and this was our first time in San Antonio.
The location of the apartment is perfect. The large balcony over looks the marina. It is just a 5 minute walk to the beautiful sunset strip where you can sit and watch the sun go down. 5 minutes walk in the opposite direction takes you to the beach. The apartment is centrally located to San Antonio's west end and supermarkets are just minutes away. One is even seconds away!
The apartment was beautiful and excellent value for money. The air conditioning kept us cool. When we arrived we opened the fridge to find a welcome pack of bread, ham, cheese, butter, milk and even wine and beer! What a lovely, thoughtful touch! It was like a home away from home. Everything that we needed was there.
Anne, the owner of the property was so friendly and helpful. Any questions I had Anne answered straight away or went out of her way to find out for me. Thank you so much Anne. We had a fantastic holiday and enjoyed our stay at Porto Magno.
Thank you very much for your kind review. Anne

"Excellent Location / Everything you could want"
Myself and Girlfriend in our early 30's have just returned from PORT MAGNO apartments,
We have travelled to ibiza for the past 7 years normally staying in hotels / apartments in San Antonio Bay.
When we found the apartment on Holiday Lettings we decided to book from looking at the pictures and when we arrived we where not disappointed! Great location / great views over looking the mariner / modern inside and spotless clean we also found the apartments safe with it being part residential.
We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone, Also we found the owner very helpful with any queries we had During the booking. another nice touch was the welcome pack which ideal if your arriving either late at night or early hours consisting of bread,milk,ham,cheese,coffee, etc etc.
Would not hesitate to book again.
Thank you, I am really pleased you enjoyed yourselves & I appreciate your kind review. Anne

"Fantastic Location- couldn't have wished for a better apartment!"
Having worked in Ibiza last year I knew what to expect from San Antonio- going back with friends this year for a holiday (hence the need for a little luxury) I spent lots of time looking for rentals in normal basic bog-standard apartment blocks finding this place was like finding a little gem!
Location was amazing, balcony over looking the port, double glazing so no early wake up noise, cold beer in the fridge when we arrived, air con- what more could a girl ask for!
If you want to be able to roll out of a taxi when you finish clubbing the night away this is without a doubt the place for you and makes you feel just that little bit more special than staying with all the other holiday makers in noisy hot basic apartments that tend to be the norm in San An.
Thank you Anne and Angela you made our holiday complete can't wait to go back next year!
Thank you for you very kind review, I am delighted that you all enjoyed yourselves. Anne

"Beautiful apartment in an amazing location...stunning view from balcony!"
Where do I start trying to describe how fantastic this apartment is????
I chose the apartment initially because of the location. For those of you that know San Antonio it's above the pharmacy and banks next to the taxi rank. For those that have never been you are perfectly placed at the entrance to the West End area (so nice and safe getting home which was my main concern as some of the more distant streets can be a little deserted). It's a 5 min walk in one direction to the sunset strip and 5 mins in the other direction to the beach and the Ibiza Rocks Bar & Diner. In other words...the absolute perfect location whatever holiday you're looking for.
Don't be put off by the slightly dated entrance area where the lifts and corridors could do with a bit of updating....because, to be honest....none of that matters once you turn that key in the door and walk into this apartment....it is simply beautiful!!!!!
The decor and furniture is tasteful, modern and very comfortable. The apartment is so well equipped that it was like a home from home. The kitchen has everything you could ever need including a great little dishwasher, microwave, toaster and a full range of cooking utensils, glasses and crockery. There is a BOSE ipod docking station, TV, DVD player + DVD's, books...just everything you need really.
But the absolute icing on the cake is the breathtaking view from the large balcony. I was speechless when I opened the patio doors and stepped out. I have stayed in Ibiza many times and never had such an amazing view. Sitting on that balcony and watching the world go by is utterly addictive (there are even binoculors in the apartment for getting a better view). You can see the whole bay, the marina, Eden and Es Paradis clubs...at night it is just so beautiful. You can even keep an eye on the queue at the taxi rank and then just head down when it's short! Even when you're sat in the apartment you remain immersed in the atmosphere. I even slept out there most nights on the huge day beds so that the first thing I saw everyday was that view.
I dont really know what else I can say about this place other than Anne, the owner, is so friendly, helpful and professional. Even though this was a very last minute booking, everything was dealt with so efficiently. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with her.
I totally love this apartment and will definately be returning again and again. I would live there tomorrow if I got the chance.
The one thing I would like to point out is that this apartment really isn't suitable for total party animals. It is a quiet respectable block and for many of the people there, a permanent home. Personally, I do my partying out in San Antonio and look forward to coming home to a more peaceful and chilled environment...if I want to party and go crazy...I'll stay out and do it. If you want to play loud music, run up and down the corridors slaming doors and generally having a ball...then there are plenty of others places in San Antonio where you can do this...if thats the sort of holiday you want then this apartment is not for you.
What have I done to get such an amazing review!! Thank you for your very kind words & I think future guests will get a good overall view if its the right place for them, I really appreciate the effort you have gone to leaving this review. Anne
