A couple of weeks ago, myself and a few friends travelled to Ibiza to celebrate our friends 21st birthday! We stayed in a villa in Playa d’en Bossa, which was only a short trip from the airport, and only a short walk to the strip and beach! There was 13 of us all together and we all got on! No arguments or anything! I know right! 13 girls in one villa and no one fell out! Amazing!
We spent our time during the day just lounging about the villa on the sun beds, listening to music, drinking cocktails and eating enough pizza and garlic bread to last a lifetime! You’d be surprised how little the food shop stocks! The first day that we were there also happened to be the day of the Royal Wedding! So in-between pool dips, we popped in the villa to catch a glimpse of Meghan’s dress, Harry’s smile, and THAT speech from Bishop Michael Curry, as well as, singing along with the choir to ‘Stand By Me’.

That night we got a taxi down to San Antonio to watch the sunset at Cafe Mambo. If you ever go to Ibiza, you have to go here! It was such an amazing experience getting to watch the sunset on the beach front. Make sure you book though, as it can get very busy, especially if you want a table at the front of the terrace. It was a €70pp minimum spend, which might sound a little pricey, but that includes both your food and your drink, so in the end doesn’t work out too bad! The food here was great too!
After Cafe Mambo, we had a walk down the beach and popped into Ibiza Rocks bar, for a couple of drinks and a dance, before finishing the night dancing and drinking in Es Paradis.

Day two consisted of nursing hangovers, and regretting drinking so much the night before, however laying in the sun and floating around in the pool did help to take the edge off of it quite a bit! Later on when we had eaten more pizza and started to feel a bit better, more Instagram photos were taken, and pool races on the inflatables began!
Much to everyones previous statements of ‘I’m not drinking tonight’, we all got ready for another night out, this time a bit more local to the villa in Playa d’en Bossa. We went to a lovely Argentinian restaurant called Justo Enfrente for dinner, and then heading across to the bar opposite called El Mojito, for a couple of shots and cocktails before, jumping into a taxi and heading off to Pacha!
I felt a bit let down by Pacha, as it has such a good reputation in Ibiza, however, the music was poor, the drinks were extortionate, and the atmosphere wasn’t that great! But maybe it was because we went so early in the season that the atmosphere wasn’t as good, but for me thumbs down for Pacha.

Day three was out final day before heading home that night. Luckily we had the villa for the whole day so we didn’t have to pack up and rush to leave, we could chill out and take our time, but most importantly get those last few pictures, pool time and sun!
It did rain for a little bit on our last day, but we made the most of it by chilling out, sticking a film on and indulging ourselves in birthday cake, before showering, packing and getting ready to leave 🙁
Our flight back wasn’t until 1am, meaning we were all extremely tired on the way home and fell straight asleep on the plane. However, not before eating the obligatory journey home Burger King at the airport!
