“Wonderful!”
Reviewed October 26, 2007

Had high expectations for this hotel and it did not disappoint! Definitely one of best places to stay in resort. A little walk from the beach-10 mins. Close to supermarket and lots of bars and restaurants. Rooms lovely-jacuzzi right in middle. Sofa bed also comfy! View from balcony amazing. Food was delicious-selection for breakfast was the largest ive ever seen. Staff all friendly and mainly all English speaking. Only disappointments were having a kitchen area (stove/sink) but no utensils. Fridge useful for keeping drinks cool though. Also, this is a spa hotel but you have to pay extra to use the sauna and steam room. There is a free outdoor jacuzzi though. Sunloungers face direct to the sea which is lovely. It was clean and overall very glad we picked this one.

Stayed October 2007

My husband and I spent a week at the Jardin del Sol, 15th-22nd September.
We had a terrace suite, with a separate bedroom, a shower room with a loo and a large shower with body jets, the bathroom area which had a large washbasin and Jacuzzi bath, a living area with sofas table and chairs and TV, and the terrace which looks out across the bay and is excellent for sunbathing. The room was kept immaculately clean and was comfortable. The Jacuzzi was used every day! The bed was in fact two 3-foot beds pushed together, and they were very comfortable, although we do prefer one large bed.

The hotel pool is free-form and is very attractive, with lots of sun-beds. There seemed to be enough for everyone, even though the hotel was full. There was a certain amount of reserving sun-beds with towels, but this didn’t seem to be as bad as at some places I have stayed. When we went down to the pool later in the afternoons, having sun-bathed on our terrace in the mornings, we never had trouble getting sun-beds. We also really enjoyed swimming in the sea. You just walk in off the rocks, (you have to be careful as the rocks at the water’s edge are slippery), or you can jump/dive in from a small platform, and there was a rope to help you haul yourself out. It was lovely to swim in the sea without getting covered in sand. Oh, and the ducks are quite safe - we saw them several times while we were there.

The restaurant is attractive with a large balcony area so you can eat outside. (It’s on the fourth floor, so the views of the bay are lovely). This area filled up quickly, but we managed to get a table there when we wanted one. One thing, though – because the restaurant is non-smoking, many of those who look for tables outside do so because they can then smoke, so if that bothers you a lot, stay inside. The food was pretty good for a hotel buffet. Dinner offered two soups, a large salad bar, 5 or 6 different meat and fish dishes, vegetables, a couple of vegetarian choices, paella, pasta with a choice of sauces, pizza, chips, Spanish savoury filled pastries, a large range of puddings, several flavours of ice cream with toppings, fruits and cheeses. For breakfast there were lots of different breads and pastries, cereals, yoghurts, fruit, cheese and cooked meats, bacon, eggs, cooked tomatoes and peppers, pancakes, vegetarian dishes including sausages, fruit juice, smoothies and a coffee machine with real espresso. It wasn’t haute cuisine, but it was decent food, with something for just about everybody.

The town, as others have said, is pretty tacky, but I don’t think it’s much different from Tenerife or many other places in southern Spain. The Meson del Rey serves authentic Spanish food and has a very good lunchtime menu of the day on weekdays, serving a three-course lunch with coffee for 9 Euros. The fried mixed seafood and the rabbit with garlic were excellent. Whilst most of the shops are tacky souvenir places, there are a couple of shops doing better-quality souvenirs in the Centro Comercial, not far from the beach. There are also a few nicer clothes shops on the road between the town and the hotel.

All in all, we had a very comfortable and relaxing holiday, which is what we were after. I might have got a bit bored if we had been there for 2 weeks, but for a week it was excellent.

  • Liked — Excellent position, very good staff, cleanliness.
  • Disliked — Not much!
