Weekend in Ibiza with my Mum 🙌

Hello there you lovely lot, I thought I’d share my recent trip to Ibiza with my Mum.

Although it was only a long weekend, it was absolutely beautiful. We stayed at Sa Clau by Mambo Hotel.

It’s been recently refurbished and it’s gorgeous, very minimalistic design, but very luxurious.

I do love a hotel room where you get free wi-fi, tv, hairdryer and safe.

I’ve got to mention the shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion. Normally, anywhere I’ve been it’s tiny bottles, but here they are giant bottles and they are beautiful ❤️ I never used my own, only because they are amazing.

The staff are very friendly, approachable and always had a smile on their face.

To be honest, it’s one of the nicest places I’ve stayed.

The most beautiful views of the sea, the port and the San Antonio fountains.

You are only 400 metres from the beach, 700 metres from the Sunset Strip, Sa Clau is right in front of the taxi rank and 5 minutes away from the bus station, and steps away from the main shopping area of San Antonio.

The view from the hotel was incredible.

Underneath the hotel is café Bondi, which is where we had breakfast and lunch every day – it was delicious. I’m not vegetarian but I did have a vegetarian breakfast, with vegan sausage, avacado, beans, mushroom, tomatoes, eggs and toast. Lunch was just as delicious – we had Nacho’s, Pizza, Burgers both vegan and meat. Club sandwich, quinoa salad and olives and foccicia

My mum and I attended the opening night of cafe mambo, the food, cocktails and atmosphere was incredible. Café Mambo is the place to be, the DJs playing are without a doubt some of the best in the world.

I had prawns and my mum had the fillet steak with peppercorn sauce, I can’t resist dessert and the chocolate bomb was the bomb.

The sunset is beyond beautiful ❤️

On the Saturday night we went to Palapa, it faces onto the marina and we had taco’s and cocktails.

We also went to the mint lounge on the Sunday night, it’s right next door to café Mambo and it’s just as good but slightly less expensive than café Mambo and another fabulous setting to see the sunset.

I had the lobster risotto and my mum had pizza and of course I had dessert, Panna Cotta. I have to say was the best Panna Cotta I’ve had to date.

I had never been to Ibiza before, and I have to say that I’d definitely go back. It’s a beautiful island, I only wish I’d had longer to explore but I will in the future.

I haven’t edited any of my pictures, as you can see, some of my clothes are hanging in the wardrobe and with sunsets as beautiful, editing isn’t called for.

I’d like to say a special thanks to Jet 2 ❤️

Anyhoo, as always thanks for taking the time to read ❤️

          Pam, I meant to write I couldn’t fit into my jeans 😂 Being dyslexic you’d think I’d know by now to double check my replies 😂 xo

            Now I wondered about that! It certainly works the other way for me. I think that’s why I like elastic waistbands at this point in my life. 🙂

            I think I might be buying elastic waistbands in the future 🙌 Thanks for the tip Pam ♥️ xo
