booked with Thomson.stayed may 3rd 2014 for 2 weeks. rooms were very clean.fresh towels and bedding every 3 days.complex was very clean and tidy.lots of cheap bars with good shows.the steaks in the grill outside the hotel were fantastic.my wife and myself have been to playa many times,this was one of the nicest complexes we have stayed in,staff were friendly and hard working,the bar and grill by the pool served good food and wasn't excessive.best bed I have ever slept in abroad.stairs to the bedroom and bathroom were a little awkward,so disabled beware.pool was clean.no problems with sunbeds.wifi was good but at 12 euros a week it should be.dont expect 5* but well worth the price.air con,fans,sun shades were all extra and a bit of a rip off,otherwise a great holiday,might get a bit ectic in full season,but was very safe and secure, enjoy! we did.take no notice of the moaning minnies.some peeps just live to complain

Room Tip: rooms 20 to 44 are on the quieter side.very close to the pool

My second time here, it's like a home away from home. Friendly staff, rooms always clean just a beautiful place to stay. The pool is brilliant, other guests are friendly and respectful. There's always a rep on site so trips are easy to book...

Just got back from a week stay at Jardin del sol and I have very mix feelings for this place.
I stay here with my wife and two children aged 12 and 17 apart from the pool there was nothing else for the kids to do, no evening entertainment at all.
TOP TIP FOR TRAVELLERS CHECK WITH operator when Gay Pride week is as this was on when we stay, didn't bother the wife and myself , but lots of questions from the 12 year old

I will first mention the GOOD POINTS;

The staff are very nice and helpful.

The cleaniness of the place is spot on the grounds are swept every day.

The rooms are cleaned 3 times during our stay and bedding was changed as well some nice touches added as well.

The pool is a nice size and my children loved being in there.

THE BAD POINTS.

There is no evening entertainment at all.

The prices in the pool bar are a bit high.

The sunbeds are unlocked at 9am but people still came out and place they sun beds in the best spots with towels on them.

The couples didn't seem happy with the noise from the children playing in the pool.

The bedroom has two single beds and the downstairs has a sofa bed which is a single bed pulled from underneath the sofa, the wife had this single bed and I slept on the sofa which was the most uncomfortable thing I have ever slept on by the end of the week my back was killing me.

Most of the time my wife and myself went out with the children to eat and vist places.
I would only stay at this place again with it was just my wife and myself.

These apartments are very clean and the gardens are beautiful. The pool area is very quiet and peaceful. Sunbeds are not unchained until 9 am this is a good idea as it stops people reserving them with towels. The staff are very polite. Don't be put off by other reviews who mention the lap dancing club next door, this place doesn't open until late is quiet and discreet. As for ladies of the night, didn't see any of those. This place is really central , most places in the resort are within walking distance. Lots of good bars and restaurants nearby. If you come out of the complex turn left and left again and cross the bridge you are then in the local area, so the shops and supermarkets are local prices. Overall if you want to holiday on a budget these are great apartments.

This place was great. Stayed in May 2014. Lots of couples. Very secure. Well kept but basic accommodation. Gardens, pool and bar very well looked after.

PLEASE DON'T GET ME WRONG - THIS PLACE WAS BRILLIANT. MY COMMENTS BELOW ARE ONLY A FEW THINGS WE WOULD DO IF RETURNING.

Our suggestions if you want to stay here are as follows:
1. Hire air con at the start of the week. It gets VERY hot at night even in May and opening the windows leads to lots of bites and noise from the street.

2. Shop in Lidl (5 min away) for your shop as the more obvious ones are extortionate. Best to cook your own breakfast as the pub breakfasts aren't that great.

3. The Yumba centre is much nicer and cleaner than the other shopping centres and was a great place to go for tapas and shopping. There are a lot of gay bars but they are great fun for straight couples too as long as you aren't easily offended. To be honest, the area around Pasha and china whites was always filled with people getting sick and being obnoxious so myself and my wife spent most of our time around the Yumba centre. If you are going as a couple, I'd suggest you do the same.

4. A lot of the local restaurants are poor fare. Mostly steak and chips, burger and chips, pizza and chips......grand for kids. Not for adults.
The best restaurant we found was Sakura - a japanese restaurant that did great demonstration cooking, sushi, teppan yaki etc. I think we had 8 courses and a beer for about €30 a head. Absolutely fantastic food.

Also a great place near the beach called Singapore that did great noodles and cocktails.

5. The cleaning staff in the Jardin Del Sol complex are super. They clean the room 4 times a week. Changing the bedding three times. Don't be worried about security or privacy. The staff are brilliant.

Basically, we had such a good time here that when we came home we started looking for dates for 2015 to take our daughter.
We saw lots of couples with children there. All were having a really good time. The bedrooms are on the inside wall of the courtyard so with the windows closed the street noise wasn't bad.
Also saw groups of every age and denomination and every one seemed to be having fun.

The hotel is literally 10 mins walk from the beach, all the shopping centres, nightlife etc. Really central.

Room Tip: You will get street noise in any room. The rooms are laid around a rectangular courtyard. The pool i...
