We were here 14th - 21st October with the idea of having a very relaxing week in a high quality hotel, we were not disappointed. The resort features two buildings, the first one has views over the pool and encompasses the more luxurious suites, whilst the second has only standard suites with views over looking the wonderful bay of Calpe, unless you have a ground floor suite which has restricted views of the bay because of trees in the grounds. I believe this building will under go refurbishment with the intention of installing a pool within the garden grounds.
We were located in the second building in a standard suite, which had a seperate bedroom, shower room and toilet. In the living space you have a large spa bath where you can relax and enjoy views out to the bay, a kitchen area with no crockery or utensils (this could be removed under the refurbishment), flat screen tv and settee which can be used as a 3rd bed. Overall the suite was spacious and to a very good standard. Reading through Iberostar brochure they state attention to detail matters, they provide soap, shower cream etc. so why not provide tea and coffee facilities in the suites, if attention to detail matters. We missed not being able to enjoy a late night coffee on the balcony to finish our night and look out over the bay, as I am sure other people would also enjoy.
The staff were attentive and always greeted us with a warm welcome, even more so if you try and communicate in the local language, they appreciate your effort. The only disappointment we encountered was the day and a half to receive an additional pillow, despite two visits to reception. The dining room was spacious with a balcony section giving wonderful views over the bay. There was a wide and varied selection of food from the buffet with something for everyone, although basic in standard was still enjoyable. The spa treatments and facilities were reasonably priced and are not to be missed. The gym is small and basic but a sign stated it will be refurbished, so should improve for next year. The pool area was very good with stunning views across the bay, so lovely to lie and relax beside, plenty of beds were available that you didn't have to rise early to secure one.
The location on the bay is within a quiet area on a hillside 400m from "The square" which is the main entertainment place, and is approx 1Km from the main town attractions. Their are numerous restaurants and bars in the area and on the way down towards the town, some were extremely busy and provided quality and value for money.
Overall, a little more attention to small details and Jardin del Sol will definitely meet our expectations of it's star grading. We will certainly return in the near future to once again experience a very relaxing and enjoyable vacation at Iberostar Suites hotel Jardin del Sol.
