“nice apartments,not nice location!”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

apartments were nice quite basic but reflects in what you pay for, gardens were nice with fish and turtles and the usual wee cat that visits. We were self catering shops were local and well stocked. Apartment was fine for us as a couple with livingroom/kitchen downstairs and bedroom bathroom upstairs, but would say its small for anymore people.
Didnt like playa de Inglis especially at night, the atmosphere is very intense with lots of people shouting at us as we were a straight couple in the gay capital. We ended up getting a taxi to maspalmas only about 5 euros and loved it there really clean beach and you can ride on camels through "the sahara". If i was to return to gran can would look straight away at maspalmas.
Husband ended up with food poisioning from the cafe on the beach front, we called the doctor to come who was absolutly lovely and 80 euros later and a jag in bum and hubby was unbelieveably better.

Room Tip: dont pay over the odds for these apartments. visit hard rock cafe!

Rooms are very dated (notice lack of pictures of rooms and complex facilities except for the pool) and apart from the pool which was great for children I would certainly not stay here again with a family. The staff were disinterested and unhelpful at reception and around the whole site throughout our stay. The Jardin Del Sol apartments are just about acceptable if you are single or young but clearly NOT FOR FAMILIES.

Room Tip: There are none!

Stayed at the Jardin del Sol Apartments at the end of July for 1 week. Got a lovely apartment with a pool view, everything we needed. The only thing missing was air con, but it didn't bother us as we knew before we went, and the fan in the bedroom kept us cool at night. The pool area was lovely, plenty of sunbeds, yes they were chained up until 9.00 am, but there was no mad rush to obtain one. The gardens were very pretty and well kept. The maids did a wonderful job, coming in almost every day we were there. We have been to Playa del Ingles 3 times now, and would definitely come back to these apartments.

Just back after week in jardin del sol. we loved the apts and hope to go back next year. Kitchen had microwave, kettle, toaster. They are very clean and pool area is lovely. In nice location, with bars and restaurants nearby, go to windmill bar for fab brekki;) we were in apt 90 which is over mackers irish bar which could be bit noisy but usually quiet after 1 am, not a problem really. All in all we loved it there.

My partner and I (Paul) decided to go to gran canaria for our 1st holiday together, we chose Jardin del Sol as it looked just what we wanted, lovely surroundings, clean, restaurants and shops nearby. The Appartments were clean, the staff were friendly and helpful keeping the complex clean and tidy, food around the pool was good and enough choice for a snacks ect during the day.it did get warm in room at night but for a small price you can hire a fan which was more than enough to cool it.. Our Thomson Rep Matt was very friendly and informative, we booked a trip with him on the Aphrodite it was exellent enjoyed every minute of it and would def do it again, we asked lots of questions about the area where to go, what to do ect and nothing was too much trouble for him he was very helpful....We will def be going again next year we would recomend The Jardin Del Sol and Thomson. Our 1st holiday together was made very special

Currently here (Oct 2012).
The apartments while old and dated are clean and fit for purpose, the pool area looks quite modern and clean and over all very nice. It is a bit pricey as there is charges for everything. The rooms do not have ac but the heat at night is unbearable so we had to bite the bullet and rent an ac unit at €60.
As for Playa Del Ingles its self, it is possibly the worse place I have ever been. Its old, dated and just plain nasty. You cannot go anywhere with out being harassed by bar/restaurant touts who wont take no for an answer. Or being bothered by some African people try to charge you a fortune for a bit of string with some beads on. I have no sympathy for these people its not my fault they chose to come here. As for the shopping centres they are full of aggressive shop keepers who again wont take no for an answer, also i feel as if i stay there for more than 5 mins i would have been mugged. I only came here for a last minute trip and i would not come back to Gran Canaria if i was payed.for the rest of the holiday i will not be leaving the hotel. If it was not so much hassle with Thomson I would have gone home after the second day. My advice avoid this hell hole at all costs, unless your idea of a holiday is being mugged, ripped of and picking up hiv.
