I first visited Jardin del Sol in April of this year and have just returned from my second vist from 5th-16th September.
I booked a suite with seperate bedroom and asked for a high floor to make the most of the sea views. This time I was in the first building, which I preferred as it was closer to the restaurant, reception and bar, and only involved using one lift, not the two you need if you are in the second building. The suite was on the 6th floor, which was two below reception and two above the restaurant.
The suites are large and clean, with beds, wardrobe (containing safe) and dressing table in the bedroom, then seperate room for shower and toilet, jacuzzi bath and sink open plan to the living area, then a breakfast bar, then the main living area with sofa, coffee table, and long table with flat screen TV. Then out onto the balcony, which wasn't huge, but had a table and two chairs, with a clothes airer on the wall. There is also a cupboard which opens out to reveal a kitchen type set up with a couple of rings, a sink, and then a fridge underneath which was the mini bar containing 2 cans of coke, 2 cans of San Miguel, 2 still, and 2 fizzy water. There was still plenty of room in the fridge to store your own drinks if needed, as the mini bar was only free if you were all inclusive.
We found the air con efficient but very noisy, so didn't use it very much, but there was a ceiling fan in the bedroom which worked very well to keep us cool.
The food ranged from good to excellent. A couple of mornings there was even cava available at breakfast! We had lobster one evening at dinner, but there was always a good selection of fish, meat, salads and pasta,with beautiful fresh fruit always available. One little niggle for me was the dining room terrace. The views from there are fantastic, and it is a lovely place to eat, but obviously seating there is limited. I noticed that there is a sign up offering to book a place on the terrace (for a cost, I think of 7 euros). We would often be sitting inside and see tables with reserved signs on them the whole time we were eating. However we did get a terrace table a few times, so managed to have the experience.
There were always sunbeds and parasols available when we went down to the pool, usually that would be at about 10.30, but even later than this there seemed to be enough to go round. The pool was lovely, never too crowded, and I specially enjoyed the outdoor jacuzzi which was not used by many people.
As we were half board, all drinks and snacks were signed for as we had them, and then we paid on checking out along with the rest of the bill.
This is a lovely peaceful hotel, it's surprising the difference it makes to stay at an adults only hotel, the staff are really pleasant and eager to please and it is maintained to a high standard. I will definately be returning!
