“Get what you pay for.”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

We have just returned from two weeks at Atlantic gardens.For what we payed we were pleasantly surprised.Bungalows bit tired but clean and everything you wanted was there.We thought the beds could have been changed more than twice in two weeks .You could not fault any of the staff they were lovely. Anna Marie in restaurant was very kind and helpful even though she was always busy she helped make our holiday.We will be going back. The people that complained should go 5 star and pay 5 star prices .

We have just returned from this lovely, peaceful place. it was, as others have said really relaxing, the grounds are beautifully maintained, and all the bungalows are positioned so that you have totally privacy.As already mentioned, they were very clean & comfortable, but the bathrooms do need sprucing up.( as they have only just changed to adult, all inclusive, i,m sure this will soon be dealt with) The pool area was spotless, & not once did we see the usual towels on beds .there were plenty of beds to go around. we have stayed in many all inclusive hotels and can honestly say we have never had such a marvellous selection of food, three times a day there were so many choices and everything was amazing, i dont eat a great deal of meat (there was every sort you could ever want & of really good quality) but the fish choices suited me great, we had tuna, sea bass, red mullet,cod, you name it we had it!! the staff were very friendly, everyone did a brilliant job, as soon as your glass was empty you were provided with another carraffe of wine, rude not to accept!!! as i said they all did an amazing job, our favourites were German (the barman) he was always smiley and friendly and in the dining room Ana Marie was a lovely girl, looking after everyone. I would certainly recommend this hotel,

Room Tip: we had room 304, which had a side sea view, but it was in the shade some of the time, but it was in...

We've just returned from a week at this hotel. It was our first time in Lanzarote so had chosen this from reviews, price and the fact that is was an adult only hotel. On the positive side, the bungalow/chalet style accommodation was clean, comfortable with its own kitchen area with kettle, fridge, microwave. The shower/bathroom was a little tired and the shower was not the greatest we've ever used. The pool areas were clean with plenty of sunbeds.
The food was fine with plenty of choice and lots of salads and vegetables - don't expect gourmet but there were some canarian dishes as well as the usual meat, pasta etc.
Staff were polite, helpful and not intrusive. The atmosphere is relaxed - no fussy rules and regulations. Evening entertainment was low key.
The location is on the edge of Playa Blanca - a good half an hour walk to the resort centre with a few bars and shops on the way. The beach by the hotel is rocky but a nice sandy beach is less than ten minutes walk away. Taxis are cheap and trips easy to arrange.
On whole nice place to stay if you want relaxed and low key

On arrival, first impressions where of a very clean well laid out complex, appealing to more mature people who want a quiet relaxing holiday. The appearance lived up to photos previous visitors have posted and the welcoming staff seemed friendly.
Sited about 15 minutes from the really lovely Flamingo beach and only another 15 minutes from central Playa Blanca the location was ideal for us, with some beautiful promenade walks, and shops, bars and restaurants within easy reach.
Our bungalow was well sited near one of the three pools and although plain, was clean and tidy. Beds were hard but surprisingly comfortable, but as mentioned in other revues, the bath and shower need some updating.
Please note that it gets very cold at night at this time of the year (February) and if we had known that there was no heating we would have paid for more superior accommodation. We did manage to rent an electric heater for 2 euros a day which was a god-send.
Food was ok buffet style, especially breakfast and lunch, but we found the evening choices were rather monotonous. Also a good tip for the management, some of the cooked meat was rather gristly and it was almost impossible to cut through it with the smooth edged knives provided.
Our main gripe there, was that on some occasions when we arrived for the evening meal we, along with others were ushered away from the restaurant as it was full, and told to get a drink and wait in the bar. We could accept this I suppose, but it was the way this was done as if it we were a herd at a cattle market.
In the bar on the first few evenings the German barman seemed to ignore us when we went to be served preferring to serve people he knew first. The situation improved however after a while I guess because our faces became more familiar.
The entertainment was rather limited but we weren't looking for a club 18-30 experience. One evening there was a guy just playing guitar who basically arrived, played for a while then disappeared without any interaction with the guests. Good if you just want background music I suppose, but we expected more.
Anyway, on the whole, not a bad place to stay, with a few issues. We love the area especially Flamingo beach and will be coming back in the summer probably to stay at the complex there.

Yours faithfully

My wife and I stayed here the first week of February. We booked only three weeks before with Jet2 and got the holiday at what we considered a very good price. We also knew that the hotel was 1500 metres from Playa Blanca ( about 25 minutes walk along a well paved coastal path). We read the Tripadvisor reviews before booking and found them generally accurate. When you arrive don't expect a large modern glass fronted hotel or you will be disappointed. The entrance to the hotel is very plain and unappealing...don't let this disappoint you. The reception area is small but the receptionist dealt with the 12 new guests swiftly. Once you get into the gardens and pool area you find these all very clean and well tended.
On first entering the bungalow it was bright and well decorated but I would agree with others that the bathroom and kitchen areas were "tired". The bungalow was fine but again, as others have stated, the bedroom/wardrobe felt damp but no obvious reason why. My wife solved this problem for her by moving the spare blankets/pillows out of the airing cupboard which housed the emersion heater and moved her clothes in. It didn't help me much but she was happy.
The food was very good with lots of freshly cooked meats, fish, pasta etc. The restaurant staff were excellent, very efficient, friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. But this could be said for all the staff at the hotel.
The bar staff were very good and you didn't have to wait long, if at all, for a drink. Beer and soft drinks were on tap for you to serve yourself if you wanted. The entertainment was, in our opinion poor, but everyone has different taste.
The guests were mature but seems like a lot of them liked a walk in the morning and the pool area was generally quiet. There were always loads of sunbeds available and maybe because of this people did not feel the need to "reserve" their beds
Value for money I could not fault this holiday and would return.

We stayed here for one week end of January and value for money we thought it was simply amazing! The bungalows were clean and tidy, the gardens were fabulous and the pool area with new parasols and sun beds were fantastic. (We are very well travelled and have stayed in many all inclusive hotels before so feel we can comment truthfully and objectively!) The food was above average for a 3 star complex was outstanding and all the staff throughout the hotel worked so hard, we're extremely helpful, courteous and polite. The manager Jose has an amazing team so well done to him as he is very 'hands on' and wants this hotel to be the best and for people to have a relaxing holiday. The gin and tonic was lovely (I bought a branded bottle on the flight but I didn't need to!) The wine served at meals was OK but not that good in the bar for some reason. My husband said the beer was fine as well and believe me he takes his beer seriously! The entertainment was OK but maybe one night a week they do need a karaoke as everyone loves a sing song on holiday. Overall this was the best 3 star holiday we have ever been on. The weather wasn't too good the week we went but we can't wait to go back.

We have recently returned from a week at the Atlantic Gardens and had a great, relaxing time.

Food - As most people have said the food was good, fresh and plenty of it although lunch and dinner had very similar foods. Breakfast was great with cereal, toast, fruit juice, bacon, eggs, fruit, pastries, etc. The red wine with dinner was very nice and very drinkable! The chef even stood at the door some evenings to welcome her guests. The staff also put coloured tablecloths and candles on the tables at night to give the restaurant a night-time feel.

Staff - Most of the staff are extremely friendly and helpful, especially in the restaurant. However, we witnessed one of the receptionist's and one of the pool bar staff being rude to fellow guests which is just not acceptable.

Complex - The complex was nice and peaceful with lovely landscaped gardens which were tended to most days of our week's stay.

Bungalows:-
The living areas are very nice, newly decorated with modern sofa and flat screen TV.

The bathroom, although clean, was very dated but we understand they are being updated bit by bit. The water didn't stay warm enough for two showers so there was always a bit of a scramble to go first!

The Kitchen was dated too but I think they intend doing something with them. A new worktop with a new fridge underneath would be fine as being AI don't really need cupboards (we only used the fridge for water).

The bedroom had been decorated and was clean but there was an overwhelming damp feel to the room which made the sheets feel damp and clothes hanging in the wardrobe also feel damp. Not sure why this is but could be because the bungalow next door's bathroom backed on to our bedroom? But there were plenty of plug points for the hairdryer, etc.

The entertainment wasn't for us but there were plenty of people who enjoyed it. People have also mentioned that the guests were all over 60 which isn't strictly true, yes there was a larger than usual proportion of older guests but there was a general mix of ages too.

Overall a great holiday and we would certainly go back. The town and the marina are a bit further away than we would have liked but we walked to both in about 45/50 mins and we knew the distance when we booked. We ate out once in town but not because of the quality of the food really just for a change
