“New Years Stay in the Sun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

Echoing the reviews of most of the others on here since it became adult only and all inclusive, it was a very good stay.

We arrived late, due to a minor delay at the airport, which meant we had missed the evening meal. However, they had plated up some salad, pasta, sushi, cold meats and a bowl I fresh fruit and left them in our apartment.

The apartment it's self, was simple, basic and clean. It was one of the modernised ones and although not in the beach front, it was very quiet and peaceful. In fact, the whole complex was peaceful and exactly was was needed for a relaxing break.

The service in the dining room was excellent and the staff worked incredibly hard but I think the kitchen staff deserve a special mention. The food was excellent; plentiful, fresh, well presented and lots of choice. It's a shame the bar staff seemed to have had their personalities surgically removed...

The location was about 20-30 minutes from the centre and an hour from the Rubicon Marina which could be got to with a €5 taxi. Highly recommend Lani's Restaurant overlooking the marina for food and drink when you want something a little different from the Atlantic Gardens.

I would certainly recommend this complex to others who are happy to chill out and relax for a week.

We stayed here for 11 days which included Christmas and were really impressed. Okay the accommodation is not the Ritz but then nor are the prices (although the refurbished junior suites are five star standard)!! Staff excellent, food and service excellent and standard of cleaning fabulous. Our bedding and towels were refreshed every other day and the bungalow was kept very clean. The only minor moans we had was the stained shower base, tv channels ( though not everyone wants tv on holiday), and the wifi band width. In this digital age when everyone isskyping family they have escaped from, improved band width is needed. Entertainment was good but the very, very,very best bit was the absence of screaming children and fractious parents! It has to be remembered that this is 3 star accommodation and therefore the service and standard of food is outstanding and far better than some of the "5 star" hotels we have paid for! Thank you to all at Atlantic Gardens:)

We stayed there for 2 weeks from 8th Dec to 22nd Dec 2014,
This hotel is fantastic and if I were to read a bad review I would be totally surprised because
no one with any sense could say a wrong word about it.
The rooms are spacious ,clean,they have a separate bedroom,so if you want an early morning cup of tea your not disturbing anyone else the sheets were not changed every day maybe 3 times in our stay but we did ask the maid not to bother cleaning the room a couple of times as it was clean,its very quite ,no noisy people above you,the gardens round them are lovely,its close to the beach,
The Staff are wonderful very helpful and happy, the food WELL !!! its fantastic no body in this world could say that the food was poor,we have stayed in 5 star hotels all over the world and have NEVER had such delicious food, there's Beef,Pork,Lamb,Turkey,Chicken,Duck,and it was cooked so well,there's lots more ,plenty of salads,pizzas,cheese & crackers,sweets,and ice cream ,and breakfast well the full works its really fantastic,.

There was Entertainment on and they were really good,I did not enjoy the bingo nights or qiuz nights but that's me .There is also the use of the jacuzzi and steam room and sauna in the next hotel and its free from this hotel it is really good going there,its just a short walk to the hotel next door.

The hotel was quite in the grounds even though we heard it was being upgraded,so we assume it had been done before we got there,

My only disappointment was the shops in Playa Blanca they were mostly Chinese Bazaars, and its a fair old walk there (but that's me again I'm not very mobile) the promenade is lovely for walking along,it was quite windy while we were there but they said that was unusual for that time of year.

The bar well the main barman "German" yes that's his name is a star,he is really a great man and the drinks are good,as strong as you want just say "More "or "Less",
All in all its a wonderful Hotel and I cannot recommend it enough to anyone.We went with Jet2 Holidays and would go back again.Its really Great believe me.

Room Tip: We had 112 a nice quite room but near reception and bar

We stayed at this hotel for a week towards the end of December 2013. Most of the staff were very pleasant and helpful. We arrived just as dinner was closing and told to eat first before checking in which was very nice and considerate. Food was of an acceptable standard with a reasonable variety and selection. We stayed in one of the upgraded rooms which was nicely done but could do with being aired out between stays. Hotel location is good close to the beach and amenities. There was entertainment every night but can not comment as we were usually out or in our room. There was only a couple of English channels on the TV and no radio. Rooms cleaned every other day but you could request additional linen or towels if required.

The only down side was the gym. It consisted of a very old bike and a few free weights and kettle bells, therefore it is very misleading to advertise it as a gym. Also it only opened between 10am and 6pm which is not always convenient. Also if the hotel intends on having fitness classes then they need to have a notice board or some way of communicating the programme clearly.

We stopped at the Atlantic Gardens for a week in November and had a great time. All the staff were very friendly and helpful the food was good and the entertainment was also good. The bungalows are in need of some updating but they are clean and tidy. My only comment would be that the pools are really cold. We met some nice people and had a great last night. We booked this holiday with Jet 2 online and got a great price.

Having read facilities available at the hotel we were quite excited by the prospect of a relaxing all inclusive break with the chance to participate in some additional activities. Lets start with the positives.

Very clean in every area of the hotel.

Food - The food was varied and pleasing. Great to see a selection of local cuisine with the option of less adventurous meals for those that prefer home comforts. From Breakfast through to lunch and the evening meals we were very impressed with the variety and quality of the food.

Staff - Well to be quite frank the staff made the holiday something special. Smiles and friendliness wherever we went. The particular staff of note were German(pronounced Herman) who ran the bars. What a breath of fresh air, always smiling, laughing, joking and doing anything he could to make your stay enjoyable. The restaurant manager, sorry forgot his name, was brilliant. He was very attentive as were his staff and made sure every meal was accompanied with pleasant staff and quality meals.

Location - Was well placed to allow walks down to Playa Blanca itself, a little further that I anticipated, to the water park which is fantastic and the lighthouse. We expected a little more life but unfortunately was a fair distant from bars and restaurants. Fantastic for anyone looking to relax with very little interruption and noise.

Accommodation - This could fall under both positive and negative. The bungalows are of a very good size and are exceptionally clean. Great to have a private courtyard garden to either relax in solitude or more so for us to leave clothes out to dry.

Now the negative

Facilities - Extremely disappointing. Advertised with a gym - That is the biggest stretch of the truth. It was dated, dirty with little or no equipment to use. The shop, we saw it but it was never opened, unstocked meaning a fair walk to buy basic amenities. Crazy golf - Only crazy because it was covered in weeds and you could not use it. The pool area on the other habd was beautiful, clean and with three pools plenty of space for all.

I think we may have been unlucky as the hotel has recently just gone Adult Only. As such there was a lot of work being carried out, lots of the bungalows had furniture outside where they were being refitted.

Overall the staff and restaurant saved this holiday for us but I doubt we would visit again

Thank you very much for taking a few minutes to share your comments, about your holiday experience in our Hotel Marconfort Atlantic Gardens.
We appreciatte both, the positive comments and the negative ones, both make us improve. We feel very pleased that you liked the cleaning, our hard working staff, the food, location, as you know everything is focus on giving you peace, relax and quietness...
About the negative we have to say that finally, both the gym and the minigolf are already finished and equipped. About the shop, this does not exit any more, as we now offered All Inclusive service.

Thanks again for your time and comments, and we wish you a wonderful holidays anywhere you decide to go. Alltough we would love to see you again among us in the future!!!!.

We did a last minute break here 15/12/13 to 22/12/13 and would like to echo what others have written.The bungalows are really nice-plenty of room, private,clean, comfy beds, quiet and pretty.We stayed in 405 and were delighted- You could see Fuerteventura across the water from just outside the bungalow.

The food was absolutely excellent with great choice choice and quality. I like to eat food local to where I am when away and there were plenty of Spanish and Canarian dishes.The fish and cold meats were a delight and my wife who has a sweet tooth loved the desserts.The wine is very acceptable and I enjoyed the local spirits-Spanish gin and tonic is very nice indeed.Spanish beer good quality as usual.

The pools are very good and I swam every day.One pool is heated(to take the chill off I think) and once you are in it is fine and on a warm day very refreshing.

The best thing of all were the wonderful staff.They were very hardworking and efficient and were always courteous and helpful-so a very big thankyou from us to them.

We traveled around the island and inevitably saw some of the other resorts and are glad we stayed where we did because of the quality and peace and quite.

One of the best places we have ever stayed in .

Room Tip: We stayed in 405 and were near the seafront which was great, but all the bungalows looked nice.
