Ibiza Rocks

Pool parties in San Antonio like no other

The Ibiza Rocks brand breathed fresh air into Ibiza’s party scene 15 years ago when it boldly brought new genres of music to San Antonio.

Fast forward to 2023, it has now established itself as the forerunner for the best daytime parties on the west of the island at its recently refurbed hotel, just a stone’s throw from the sunset strip.

Ibiza Rocks History

Let’s take a trip back to 2005. Back then, Britons Andy McKay and Dawn Hindle had already built a formidable reputation on the island after creating the legendary Manumission party at Club Ku (now known as Privilege).

McKay believed there was a gap in the market for 20-somethings who wanted to come to Ibiza to experience more than just a DJ set. The couple took a small venue in San Antonio and for the next three summer seasons booked the likes of Kasabian, Babyshambles, The Artic Monkeys and The Kaiser Chiefs perform. The Ibiza Rocks brand was alive and kicking.

After three successful seasons, an opportunity arose to purchase the family hotel Club Paradiso Mediterraneo just down the road, close to the sunset strip. In doing so, it became rebranded as the Ibiza Rocks Hotel, which remains the location where you can find their daily poolside parties throughout the summer.

The Ibiza Rocks Group still own the original venue in the bay, now called the Ibiza Rocks Diner. The group also own other hotels in Ibiza and Mallorca, including the legendary Pikes Hotel.

Club Information

Ibiza Rocks Hotel is located in the heart of San Antonio, a stone’s throw from the sunset strip.

The hotel’s 368 rooms are situated across 4 floors, looking over the main courtyard to the stage and swimming pool. Daily pool parties typically take place from 2-9pm, with stage setups varying, depending on the party that day.

Guests of the hotel receive entry to the daily parties, so you can expect both the dancefloor and balconies above to be packed no matter where you look.

Ibiza Rocks uses a VOID soundsystem, the same company that provide sound to DC10 and Eden.
