We stayed at the Luabay Galatzo last June at Paguera, 2 miles away,and had a brilliant holiday with friends, another couple, so chose the Iberostar Jardin on the basis of adults only and excellent reviews on Tripadvisor.
Check in was pleasant and our Junior Suite was amazing, with Jacuzzi, big screen TV , power shower and sea views.
Most reviews recommended upgrading to prestige. Both my wife and I and our friends, another couple,were glad we didn't, as it looked like the area was packed in like sardines and had no seaview from sun loungers.
The only reason I can't give it maximum marks is the evening entertainment was garbage. One evening there was a Scottish woman crying behind us. Turned out she was laughing so hard at how bad the singer was it made her cry. Other nights it sent people to sleep. Iberostar need to visit the Luabay to see how to half entertain.
Food was slightly below Luabay Galatzo standard also, but restaurant staff worked tirelessly to keep everyone happy. Apart from a couple of times, we always got an outdoor terrace table overlooking sea for breakfast, lunch and dinner, otherwise we had to wait no more than five minutes.
A word of warning, if you want to tip a member of the restaurant staff, put it directly into their hand as we found out that the maitre'de, who looks like Sgt Bilko, pockets all the tips that go into the box beside him at the entrance to restaurant.
Bar staff around pool faultless and rooms cleaned impeccably everyday.
Overall, a great hotel.
