, Apartado 244, Sant Carles.
It's hard to find enough superlatives to describe Can Talaias, a little finca hotel surrounded by hills and pine trees and overlooking the blue waters of the Mediterranean. There is something for everyone when staying at Can Talaias. It's a family haven, with safe exciting grounds all around, a trampoline, a kids garden house, and friendly animals. It's also a unique romantic escape, with a festival of colours from sunrise to sunset, spectacular starry nights with moonlit sea as a bonus when the time is right!
The terrace in front of the hotel is simply huge and the views from there are stunning. It really is an ideal spot to enjoy a leisurely breakfast facing the rising sun. Further down the hill is the wonderful swimming pool, secluded, and offering a choice of sun or shade. The gardens extend even further and are stocked with all manner of native species. They are a magical place to walk, sit or stroll, regardless of whether you're a garden lover or not. The original concept of the Mediterranean garden has been taken further to include a large plant nursery and greenhouses specialising in drought-resistant plants suitable for Ibiza.
Few guests will spend much time indoors but there is a lovely sitting room with a library for those times when a little indoor relaxation is in order. The guest rooms are comfortable and beautifully decorated. The two suites have their own terraces with extensive sea views. Most other rooms also have a terrace and/or a sea view.
Can Talaias was originally discovered by comic-actor Terry Thomas and his wife while horse-riding on Ibiza. At that point it was just another run-down farmhouse surrounded by dry fields and carob trees, but the views were irresistible. Having failed to resist, the house was bought, extended and improved to create the wonderful place we see today. Working from the original features of the finca, the improvements retained the classic Ibicencan style of thick walls with soft rounded edges, dark wood floors and large arched windows.
Continental breakfast is included and extras are available, all served from 8.30 until midday.
There is a lunch menu with a selection of salads, pastas and sandwiches.
Snacks available all day.
Finally there is a dinner menu with 2 starters & main courses to choose from.
Cushan and Laetitia happily cater for vegeterian, vegans, coeliac diets, and kids. As they use as much local produce as possible from the local shops and farms, it is really helpful to give them a bit of notice of your requirements.

Here's What Some People Have Written On Other Review Sites or in the Guestbook:
|Can Talaias was a brilliant discovery ... silence, peace, marvellous views, the staff and the owners are fantastic ... the pool is gorgeous ... very good wine list and simple meals of real quality.|
|I have to catch my breath every time I think of Can Talaias. With that garden, those views of the Mediterranean, it really is a magical place in the middle of the San Carlos pine forest (one of my favourite places on Ibiza). I recommend it unconditionally if you want the authenticIbiza far away from noise and close to nature.|
|I can't help smiling when I think of it. The super-comfortable bed, the lovely bathroom and the spectacular breakfast on the terrace with that unbeatable view of the sea.|
