“Lovely apartments”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We stayed from 10th to 24th August and it was very busy but you didn't have to get up at the crack of dawn to get a sunbed, even if you missed out there are two beds on your patio and we were in 14b so it took two mins to get to the pool! Jardines del sol are the nicest apartments we have ever stayed in with every mod con you could possibly want or need if I had any criticism at all is the distance away from the centre of Playa Blanca - I have some walking difficulties and after my husband and son walked the "20 min walk" as quoted by many others on this site they told me there was no way at all I would have been able to walk the route so we had to use a taxi both ways which after two weeks became expensive. The staff were amazing being very helpful before and during our stay. The most helpful tip I used from someone else's review was to book our transfer to and from the airport via the reception staff - it cost 25 euros each way for four people which is a real bargain. The only thing I would add to that is we booked our transfer back for 6pm for a 9.30pm flight, they turned up on time but then proceeded to give us a tour of playa blanca picking up other holidaymakers going to the airport which meant we eventually got there at 7.15pm - the lack of speed at check-in then the decision by monarch to close the flight 30 mins earlier resulted in blind panic to get to the gate on time... My tip to others BOOK YOUR RETURN TRANSFER EARLY AS POSSIBLE or at least ask reception to find out from the transfer company how many other pick ups they are doing!!! All in all a thoroughly enjoyable holiday in an amazing apartment, brilliant staff, beautiful place and we will return :-)

just returning after a great weeks stay in jardines del sol, the apartments are very spacious, clean and tidy. we had a two bedroom with two bathrooms all the mod cons you could think of, large cooker, washing machine, iron, large fridge/freezer, hairdryer, english channels great to catch up on soaps or if just want to stay in a night. ruby's restaurant served lovely food. it is a quiet resort and around a 20 minute walk into playa blanca but we didnt mind this, great excerise. we would recommend this apartment

We stayed for 2 wks at beginning of august, Lovely accommodation the bungalows were very well clean and equipped the gardens were beautifully maintained and the whole resort had a great relaxed friendly feel to it. Sun beds were always available and people didn't reserve them for the day, first time I've come across this and it was great. Staff were very attentive and efficient. A gentle 15-20 min stroll into Playa Brava with a great variety of bars and restaurants, and taxi back €3.5. One of the best Diamond resorts we have stay at

Would recommend and definitely go back. Very clean and well kept. Bungalow and grounds beautifully kept.
Small restaurant on site, but good food.

Short walk to water park. You can walk into Playa Blanca or taxi for €3

Going where there's glorious weather always helps! Excellent accommodation with good facilities. The small restaurant does the basics for the guests. If you want a sun bed by the pool you'll have to get up early. It's not really a problem as all the apartments have their on patios if you just want to sun worship. Very helpful and customer facing staff who gave some spot on restaurant recommendations. One of our best ever beach/sun holidays.

Brilliant cannot find a single fault. Resort was full but extremely quite. Plenty of sunbeds no reserving at all with towels. Ruby`s pool bar brilliant we have an extremely fussy eater of a daughter but nothing was a problem, staff very good. Largest villa we have ever stopped in. Lovely beach within an easy 15 minute walk very safe for children.booked to go back within a day of getting back home.

Room Tip: Try and get a Villa they are big.

Jardines Del Sol is simply amazing! We have just returned after a week's break and would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday in a wonderful setting to stay here.

The bungalow/villas are clean and well equipped with their own patios where, if you don't feel like going to the pool or beach, you can relax on very comfortable sun loungers.

The staff are, without a doubt, the most professional, friendly and accommodating I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Jeanette (manager) runs the resort with passion and enthusiasm and this has obviously rubbed off on everyone who works there. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they are always willing to give advice on local events and good places to eat or visit. Maria who works on reception is a brilliant Diamond Resorts ambassador and I wish her customer service skills could be replicated throughout the organisation.

All in all, a brilliant place to stay and one I would highly recommend.
