Elrow Pool Party at Ibiza Rocks Hotel Crowd

WHAT’S IT LIKE TO WORK AT
IBIZA ROCKS HOTEL?

We asked a few of our colleagues some questions about their experience of Ibiza, and the hotel so that if you’re thinking of applying to join our family next summer in Ibiza, you can get an idea of what to expect!

Ibiza Rocks Hotel Host Team

THE HOST TEAM

WHAT’S IT LIKE TO WORK IN IBIZA?

“Working in Ibiza is like nowhere else in the world (and I’ve lived in New York and London). The atmosphere around the island is amazing, you can go from working during the day to being on a sunset boat and to a super club after! Many people make the misconception that Ibiza is just about partying, which is a big part of it, but there is actually so much more! On your days off you can visit stunning beaches, hippy markets and Es Vedra to name a few! Plus you get to be constantly tanned. What more do you want?”

WHY IBIZA ROCKS HOTEL?

“Ibiza Rocks is such a well established brand, from the big names they have hosted to their diverse offering of events, I knew straight away when I was going to work in Ibiza it was going to be for them.. and now Ibiza Rocks is like my family, I’ve been here for almost two years now!”

WHAT’S IT LIKE TO BE A HOST?

“One of the best decisions I have made! You’re working in a dynamic environment, with amazing people all whilst getting to see world class artists!”

THE RETAIL TEAM

WHAT’S IT LIKE TO WORK AT IBIZA ROCKS?

“Absolutely amazing. Coming to live in an island where you don’t know anyone is scary so I thanked my lucky stars that I had a job in a place that was like a little family and who all genuinely cared about each other.  You all go through the same experience together and I made the most amazing memories in the last 6 months. I count the people in them as friends I’ll have for life! Ibiza Rocks is definitely a home away from Home.”

WHY IBIZA ROCKS HOTEL?

“I choose Ibiza Rocks mainly for its name and what they do. The effort that goes into those pool parties’s every-week is amazing!  Every week feels like the first one all over again and it feels good to be part of the brand in that way because they really are unforgettable. It’s December and I still watch videos of the Elrow pool party’s over and over, literally the 2 best days of my life. “

WHAT’S IT LIKE TO WORK IN MERCHANDISE?

“I loved my Merchandise Team family and job. The best moments where after pool party’s especially Craig David we found really busy and it was good that we could interact with the guests after the events to see how they enjoyed them. Being after pool party’s you can imagine people are pretty drunk and intrigued by merchandise so it gives us a bit of comedy as well.”

“Be confident and memorable.  The merchandise shop is definitely somewhere guests like to come in for a little chat so having good banter helps as well.”

THE RECEPTION TEAM

WHAT’S IT LIKE TO WORK IN IBIZA?

“Ibiza is a special place and there is a reason why people come back season after season. It’s a feeling the people and the music of the island create. What I found as a worker is everyone tries to look after one another. It’s a tough place to work with mostly 6 day weeks and sleepless nights whilst on the dance floor. You will have your good days and you will have your bad days with the former outweighing the latter for sure. The people who I met through working were from various countries from around the world and all had the same motivation as me; to work hard and play hard. You get many perks as a worker such as workers passes for super clubs among other discounted club tickets. You will also learn off other workers of where to go to see the other side to the island that you would never know about if you were not a worker.”

WHY IBIZA ROCKS HOTEL?

“A big well-known brand, home of the pool party, the team you work with are amazing and supportive, any job role is challenging and rewarding, potential selfie opportunities with Craig David and Stormzy, chances of development and cracking staff parties.”

WHAT’S IT LIKE TO WORK IN THE RECEPTION TEAM?

“I would say the Reception Team are very much part of the core in the functional cog of keeping the hotel running (might be slightly bias ha).  Checking customers in and out of the hotel, answering questions on the nearest beach and at times becoming an agony aunt to those that needed it were just some duties you perform as a receptionist. You gain more and more responsibilities over time and training which is at first daunting but rewarding. I was one of 2 English team members out of a team of 9 and I can say that I was embarrassed as they all spoke perfect English and actually understood my rubbish British sense of humour. As a team we had to get through some tough busy times that required clear thinking and patience and we can also tell many a funny story during our shifts on reception. We also got to see a lot of the live events happening at the hotel over the season which is a nice work/life balance.”

GIVE ONE PIECE OF ADVICE FOR PEOPLE APPLYING

“Learn a bit of Spanish, even if it’s the basics. This is something I didn’t do and found hard even during the season. It will give you a head start and you are on a Spanish island after all. 95% of the time you will be talking to British people so don’t panic if you don’t know your Spanish numbers to ten yet. I’ll start you off … uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco, seis, siete, ocho, nueve, diez. ;-)”

THE EVENT SALES & PROMOTION TEAM

WHAT’S IT LIKE TO WORK IN IBIZA?

“Working in Ibiza is a beautiful to place to work on this magical party island but it’s also tough the working hours are not your usual 9/5pm office hours and the heat can be exhausting working outside on resort for most of the working day.  It’s very rewarding the island has a strong workers connection which makes every working day a pleasure and somewhat rewarding.”

WHY IBIZA ROCKS HOTEL?

“Ibiza Rocks Is a brand that I have also followed and also wanted to work with some of the most legendary artist within the industry which is highly exciting and rewarding.”

WHAT’S IT LIKE TO WORK IN EVENT SALES?

“Working in sales in Ibiza is the same as working in sales in the U.K. There are allocated targets and long hours ahead but working for such a great brand allows us to put together some amazing events on the island something that we are known for and extremely proud of.”

GIVE ONE PIECE OF ADVICE FOR PEOPLE APPLYING

“Be prepared for long hours, hard graft, pressure, daily problem solutions pro-active thinking. But more importantly making new friends & life Long memories that you will never forget.”
