Being an Ibiza Rocks Host
As we continue to nurse our Ibiza blues and reflect on another incredible summer, we asked Emily from our Ibiza Rocks Host Team to throwback to her first season working abroad and give you an insight into joining Team Rocks.`
WHY DID YOU WANT TO WORK FOR IBIZA ROCKS?
The history and stories that Ibiza Rocks has was definitely something I wanted to be apart of. I know a couple of people that have been Hosts in previous years, and they couldn’t say a bad word about their experience at Ibiza Rocks. I wanted a taste of that!
DESCRIBE THE ROLE OF THE IBIZA ROCKS HOST TEAM.
The Host Team role is a really important role within the hotel. This summer we dealt with any issues that the guests might have whether that be they wanted to upgrade their room, or even down to if they had lost their passport on a night out. A second role of our job was to make sure all of the guests are having the BEST time on their holiday by talking to and making friends with them. The guests come to the Host Team with any questions they have about Ibiza Rocks’ events, the island itself, and any recommendations for nights out and where to go. In the case of the Host Team, knowledge is power!
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE SHOW AT IBIZA ROCKS HOTEL THIS SUMMER AND WHY?
My favourite show was Major Lazer, when the line-up came out before the season, it was the one I was most excited for. The buzz around the hotel on the day of the gig was amazing, everyone was so excited!
BEST IBIZA NIGHT OUT?
PIKES. Any night out there is so different to any of the clubs in Ibiza but still has some of the best DJs playing…
WHAT WAS YOUR PERSONAL HIGHLIGHT OF THE SUMMER?
Before the summer I never expected to make such good friends with so many people. We were told at our assessment day that the people you work with become like your family, and they were right.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR TOP IBIZA RECOMMENDATIONS; ANY HIDDEN GEMS WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT?
I never cooked a meal during my time in Ibiza, so I ate out a lot. The best place I ate at was definitely Tapas Restaurant & Lounge Bar, all I’ll say is Tapas Mojito & garlic prawns. As well as eating out, I also love a beach, and my favourite beach on the island is Cala Saladeta.
TELL US YOUR TRACK OF THE SUMMER AND WHY?
Craig David – Ain’t Giving Up. The music video was filmed at his Ibiza Rocks TS5 Pool Party so every time I see it, it takes me back to the best Sundays that we could have wished for!
