We are a family with a fifteen year old daughter and returned from our six night all inclusive stay at the hotel yesterday. We are very impressed with whole experience of staying at the Gardenia Park Hotel. The standard of cleanliness in the rooms and around the hotel was a very high standard compared with other 3 star hotels we have stayed in. The staff were very obliging and cheerful. We found the food selections above average for a 3 star, one day we were treated to the chef giving an outdoor demonstration of how to cook Paella and then we all got to try it. The location of the hotel couldn't be any better with the beach accessed by a secured gate at the bottom of the gardens, our third floor room overlooked the ocean and we had a panoramic view of the whole coastline. Right outside the hotel we caught the bus into Fuengirola for the Tuesday market and bought all our prezzies to bring home, we even managed to barter some of the prices down, the cost each way on the bus was only 1.30 euro each. I would reccommend catching the train (only a 5 minute walk from the hotel and costing us a total of 5.90 euro's) in to Benalmadema to take the cable car ride to the top of the mountain, the views are beautiful and we got to watch the Falconary show included in the cost 36 euro's for the three of us.
The only down side for us adults was the nightly entertainment though the animation team ( Cain and Lola ) worked very hard to keep us engaged it would have been nice to have had a night or two watching other acts and/or artists. The daytime entertainment was very good for anyone wanting to get involved and kept our daughter occupied for a while and she also madesome good friends.
We will definately be returning to the Gardenia Park Hotel as soon as we can and would reccommend it to anyone thinking of going for a first time :) Photo's will follow
