Slip Back In Time | Old Skool Ibiza – Our Intro
Slip Back In Time was born way back in the year 2000 when Slipmatt held a weekly residency at Eden Super Club as well as a small venue called Nightlife at the bottom of San Antonio’s West End. This was one of the original Ibiza clubs that was playing Acid House back in 1987.
Slipmatt has been back and forth from the island 100s of times over the past 30 years and in that time has held many Slip Back In Time parties at iconic venues including Es Paradis, Eden, Benimussa Park, Club Summum, Ibiza Rocks, Itaca and many more.
Holiday rave events are the latest trend these days for the more mature clubber, mature in age that is 😉, and Matt’s DJ’d at and been involved with this style of event for well over a decade. Slip Back In Time has now grown in to a team of 4 main partners who organise the annual Old Skool Ibiza events in May.
Matt, Rachel, Terry & Jacqui have embraced the challenges that these types of events bring with them, and along with lots of support from other friendly helpers, DJs and entertainers, they’ve created something really special & unique that their customers simply can’t get enough of.
Please check out some of the other videos for lots more information and details about our events and everything you’ll need to know to make ‘Slip Back In Time – Old Skool Ibiza’ the best experience ever.

Ibiza has a huge clubbing history that stretches back even before house music. It’s always been a go-to place for the rich and famous to party, and from way back in the 70s and 80s has been frequented by the rich & famous as well as many pop superstars like Freddie Mercury and Wham who filmed their Club Tropicana video at Pikes Hotel in San Antonio back in 1983.
In 1987 Paul Oakenfold, Danny Rampling, Nicky Holloway and Johnny Walker visited the island and discovered the Balearic sound and the new Ibiza “clubbing experience” at Amnesia. This was a major catalyst that kick started the UK Acid House scene and the 2nd Summer of Love in 1989.
Ibiza has always had a huge influence in the UK dance music scene, and that link has grown stronger as the years have ticked by. From 80s Acid House to latest explosion of modern Tech House and everything in between including Trance, Electro, Old Skool Rave and that unique Ibiza chillout vibe.
Ibiza is beautiful. Everyone should take some time out to explore the island, the culture, the local food, and some of the amazing coves and beaches.
Ibiza is home to some of the biggest, most prestigious and certainly most famous super clubs in the world. This is why it’s known around the globe as the party capital, and being the party capital and such a beautiful island is what attracts us at Slip Back In Time to keep coming back.

What’s Included In The Package
It’s very simple. All options are ‘All-Inclusive’ and you can choose between 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7 nights starting on day 1 or finishing on day 7. If you want to stay with us longer that’s no problem. You can add extra days either side of the event – simply drop us an email.
All packages include a welcome pack, hotel accommodation and entry to absolutely everything except the boat party. The reason we don’t include the boat party is simply because some people don’t like boats, and that is all.
We do include an option for Ibiza airport transfers. You can choose transfers on our booking page. It’s usually cheaper than grabbing an airport taxi and can certainly be much more convenient.
We don’t include flights because these days it’s so much easier and cheaper to book your own, plus you guys are joining us from so many different locations across the UK, Europe and the world, even from as far as Australia. We do however recommend that you keep an eye on flight prices. They tend to fluctuate throughout the year so don’t be too hasty, and certainly don’t leave it too late. We will always do our best to recommend the best time to book.
We also offer wristbands for event entry only as some of you would rather stay at a villa or in other parts of the island. These wristbands may grant you access to our daytime poolside sessions at the hotel, but we cannot guarantee this when the hotel is full.
There’s lots of information on our website, and if in doubt, always feel free to drop us a line on firstname.lastname@example.org
Music & Entertainment
Yes, you guessed it, ‘Old Skool Ibiza’ is pretty much all about Old Skool, and Ibiza 😉. For us it also means Old Skool values, and that Old Skool attitude that we found in the 90s when it comes to partying.
The rave scene has been around for well over 30 years, so what part of that 30 odd years do we focus on? Well, the secret formula is that the rave scene was pretty much built on a foundation of House Music from the late 80s, especially in Ibiza, so we mix up plenty of House Music, new and old, mixed in with the classics from over the years as well as lots of early 90s rave from that golden era. We also touch on a bit of Trance and plenty of Ibiza anthems. We’re certainly not snobby with our music and last year people were lapping up 80s soul & reggae for an hour at lunch time by the pool right through to some upfront House mixed in with the classics in the super clubs at night. We’re very proud of the DJs we choose, we have total faith in them – everyone has done a grand job so far.
The ‘Old Skool’ in Old Skool Ibiza also refers to our culture, meaning our customers are more interested in giving each other a hug rather than wondering how much their bag costs, and more interested in simply dancing all night and enjoying the experience rather than taking hundreds of videos and selfies. Photos, video and live feeds are already taken care of by our wonderful team.
Our dancers put on a great show and will no doubt blow you away with their energy, and for 2023 we’ve got a few new entertainment surprises up our sleeve that we’re really excited about.

Our Hotels & Staff
We chose our hotels, the San Remo and S’Estanyol for many positive reasons.
The hotels are linked together as one complex and operated by the same team and manager. They share the same restaurant so everyone eats in the same place, and we can also use the bars and facilities in both hotels, no matter which one you stay in.
They are situated in a fantastic location right next to the beach with amazing views in the popular bay area with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants all around.
The staff are extremely helpful and very friendly and love to join in with the fun. Nothing is ever a problem. There’s always food and drink available from 8am right through till the pool bar closes at 11pm.
Both hotels are modern and spotlessly clean – there’s even a small gym if you fancy an Ibiza workout.
Both hotels have their own pools. We use the larger San Remo pool for our main daytime area and for a nice chillout just head over to the S’Estanyol pool area where the music is softer and there’s another all-inclusive bar.
If you ever have any questions while you’re away, the reception staff are always happy to help.
Food & Drink
We believe all-inclusive is by far the best value for this type of holiday event and our customers tend to agree. You may want to experience a favourite restaurant or a special setting somewhere else as a treat, but we feel you’ll still be glad of the all-inclusive deal.
From our own experience, you won’t spend a single penny all day every day on food, drinks and snacks, and with the bar open until 11pm every night, it’s great to be able to top yourself up with a couple of beers or a cocktail or three before you go out for the evening.
That being said, contrary to what some people say, Ibiza is not always expensive and can still be cheaper than the UK.
The hotel restaurant has a great selection of food with chef’s specials every day, starters, salads, mains, desserts, fruit, sweets, and even unlimited vino, all with friendly and helpful service 😉
Overall, we think the all-inclusive is great, but Ibiza has an amazingly wide ranging choice of restaurants and bars from the loud and fast to some of the finest dining in the world, so you’ll never go hungry or thirsty.
Daytime in Ibiza
I’m guessing if you’ve been out the night before you won’t be up too early, or if it’s early enough, you may still be up 😉
Daytime by the pool is lots of fun, with our people getting to know each other, chatting about the night before, and simply enjoying the sun, the music, the love in the air, the vibes and a few drinks.
Most people tend to surface between 10-11am just in time to catch breakfast. Our DJs start around 1pm with some softer sounds to start the afternoon off gently. From the moment the music starts we’ll always have a member of our team around the pool area to help and answer any questions. We’ll also have merchandise and extra evening event tickets available through the day.
We pride ourselves on being a friendly bunch so make sure you introduce yourself to everyone. If you’re traveling on your own, you won’t be the only one. Everyone is made very welcome, so you’ll never feel alone and you’ll meet new friends every day. Just make sure you say hello!!
The beach is just a few metres away from the pool areas so it’s always nice to go and dip your toes in or even have a swim.
The hotel staff are super friendly so please be nice to them and they will look after you with first class service and a beaming smile.
Then at around 7pm we turn the DJs off which gives us an hour or two to eat & chill before we get ready to party into the early hours. Some evening we arrange some alternative sounds and entertainment for a get together before we hit the club.
Check out the programme page on our website for the full itinerary.
Night Time in Ibiza
We recommend that you get yourself at least some rest during the day ahead of our bigger nights, even if it’s just an early evening power nap. You’ll be glad you did 😉
We have a great longstanding relationship with our venues which we feel fit our themed nights perfectly. We’re spoilt in Ibiza to have so many amazing friends and places to choose from.
Everywhere we go is within walking distance which means you don’t need to worry about taxis, unless you’re in a rush or simply don’t fancy a stroll. Also, keep an eye on the itinerary as we may be holding a pre party ahead of the night’s main event,
Ibiza super clubs do have a reputation of being expensive, but at Slip Back In Time we believe that the sheer standard of sound, light, décor and service in these venues easily tips the balance in their favour. There’s no other place in the world quite like it, and you can always have a couple of cheeky ones at the all-inclusive hotel bar before 11pm
It’s obviously vey important that you look after yourself and keep an eye out for your mates. Pace yourself too, as you’ll want to enjoy the memories and you won’t want to miss out on the next day. Always keep safe. Stay with friends and don’t go wandering off too far on your own in the dark, especially if you’ve had a few drinks. If you ever feel worried for any reason or you feel unwell, just find one of the team or grab someone familiar and let them know immediately. We’ve never knowingly had a problem, and we’d like to keep it that way.
And finally, always bring your smile, dance like no one’s looking, and most importantly, have the time of your life…
Old Skool Behaviour
We have a fantastic track record for friendly customers and we plan to keep it that way. We all leave our egos at home and take on the Golden Rule of “treat others the same way you would like to be treated yourself” with respect, kindness and a little love.
Our customers often tell us how comfortable they feel in themselves within our group. We come in all shapes, sizes and ages, and there’s zero judgement from anyone in any way whatsoever.
We do have our own security to call on so if there are any problems, just let us know and we will deal with any situation discretely and without any fuss.
It’s always nice to respect people’s peace, quiet and sleep, so please be mindful when returning to your room in the early hours. The hotel understands that we’re all on holiday, however they obviously won’t tolerate extreme noise and loud hotel room parties in the early hours.
It’s quite simple, we all want to have fun, so just be the nicest version of yourself, and that will always reflect back on you with the best holiday experience ever.
