The El Jardin was not the highlight hotel of our trip. Although not terrible or a bad experience, I would not stay there again. The hotel is dated and does not have the extra amenities that other hotels have, but it was also the cheapest hotel of our stay. It was clean enough, but reminded me a bit of a camping or dorm room experience. Something in the bathroom was leaking (water on the floor). The breakfast consisted of a banana, graham cracker type cookies, and coffee. On the other hand, the staff was friendly, the grounds were nice, there was AC, and the pool was ok. Also, there was a night watchman. Plus, it was a great location.
You might want to spend the extra money on Ylang-Ylang. We only went to happy hour there, but it suggested nice rooms.
As for activities, if you are the adventurer and an active traveler, we suggest the El Chorro hike (not horseback) and a day trip to Cabo Blanco followed with a drive to Mal Pais to have a gourmet pizza beachside (four wheel drive absolutely required to get to Mal Pais from Cabo Blanco). Also, head over to the Artista Italian restaurant - wow.
