Our party of 6 stayed at Jardines del Sol for a week at the end of May. It has been a really wonderful holiday for our mixed group which included an adult wheelchair user and two small children. The accommodation was so well equipped, spacious and clean. We had requested an adapted apartment which included a wetroom with shower chair which was brilliant and made such a difference to other places we have stayed where 'adapted bathrooms' tend to consist of a grap rail by the bath and the loo but not much else. The disabled access bedroom also had adjustable beds which made it a home from home for my daughter. It was very easy to get around both the apartment and the resort with wheelchair or childs buggy. We had also requested a cot and high chair and these were in the apartment waiting for us.

I cannot stress how well equipped the accommodation is with regard to washer, fridge freezer, dishwasher etc. it really is a home from home.

The main swimming pool is heated and it also has a pool hoist which is operated by the pool attendant, who is so helpful. It also has a ramped entrance without steps which makes easier access for those who don't like steps. The pool temperature was good and made for a lovely swim. Having been in many 'heated' pools, the one at Jardines del Sol is definitely a better temperature than a lot of others. There are two other smaller pools also, but these were a little cooler. The grounds are beautifully maintained and so pretty. All accommodation has it's own outside space with loungers and table and chairs.

The reception staff were all very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and keen to help in any way possible.

The bar and restaurant on site provides a decent selection of both food and drinks and is very reasonably priced for both.

The resort is gated which makes it feel very safe and secure with ample parking on site if you hire a car as we did.

The housekeeping team were friendly and efficient and left the apartment spotless after their visits.

The resort is a 20 minute walk from the centre of Playa Blanca, but there is a taxi rank right outside if you didn't fancy stretching your legs.

A bit about Playa Blanca and Timanfaya: My daughter made use of a special chair at Playa Blanca beach which allowed her to go into the sea properly for the first time in her 26 years. The life guard set us up and pushed her into the sea and we swam with her while she bobbed about in this buoyancy chair. It was the highlight of her holiday in many respects and the life guard was so helpful. When we visited the Timanfaya National Park they have an adapted bus with a lift for wheelchair users. It made it so easy to enjoy the volcano experience and again, the drivers and staff on site were so helpful.

All in all, we had a wonderful holiday in Lanzarote, made especially fabulous by the staff and facilities at Jardines del Sol. The week flew by and I wish we could have stayed longer. The facilities on site made it a very easy holiday for us all.

Thank you, Jardines del Sol!

First the negatives- there isn't any
The quality of these apartments are excellent
Dishwasher washing machine toaster microwave all first class
I am writing this whilst sat at Ruby's bar where for the price it cannot be faulted
Booked a 1bedroom apartment but thanks to the ultra professional staff they gave us the keys to a 2 bedroom apartment for the same price
The cleanliness of the place is perfect .

If anybody ever writes a negative about the accommodation then I don't know what you would expect

The resort is a ten minute walk or 3 euro ride in a taxi
There are plenty of shops and restaurants for every pallet

Will I return in the future without a doubt

Do not hesitate just book and enjoy

Thank you jardines

Just come back from a weeks break at the Jardines del Sol in Playa Blanca. The quality of the bungalows and surrounding areas are remarkable. We booked via booking.com and got a great deal of about £250 for the week. The complex is worth double that. The most memorable bits - Very well maintained, bungalows are of a very high standard and include usual home comforts such as dishwasher and a washing machine, a TV in 2 rooms, dvd player with videos to borrow, Air Conditioning, 2 bathrooms - you get it. In terms of a holiday let, this has to be one of the best properties we have stayed at. Now if I am being picky... these are the areas if improved would make it from superb to outstanding. The check in was way too long - about 20 mins. When you arrive, especially after travelling is your key some basic information and done. Here.... you have to sign a "rules" document, be told about getting your money back if you go to a (timeshare) "presentation" etc... all in a all a fuss - very efficient and pleasant, but an unecessary time waste. WiFi - what places these days doesnt have free wifi? You have to pay for it, and its expensive. I bought 3 days for 16.93 euros, and after 10 mins went back and got it refunded as it didnt work to be told its rather tempermental. The TV gave up on us about halfway through the holiday and kept scrambling. Now... I now you dont go on hols to watch TV, but when its late or the weather isnt good, the TV is a bonus - at least make it work. The on-site Ruby;s snack bar do a great job and are friendly. The Steak night on a Wednesday is a must - the fillet steaks were amazing. On a Friday they do a Canarian day with free wine tasting and Canarian food tapas samples - nice touch. Getting into the marina area takes about 5 mins in a cab (outside the complex) and costs just over 3 euros each way - easy. I walked in a couple of times - and a gentle walk took me 45 mins, but was nice. The only thing you might want to be aware of is that this a timeshare type membership complex. I didnt know this until I tried emailing them a week before our holiday. There's a bit of 'soft' intro/ sell but nothing like the 80s. If you dont want it, you dont have to. This is why i suspect the property was so reasonably priced to get you into one of their properties. The pools are nice, a bit chilly but clean. All the staff are incredibly friendly and will go out of their way to help if needed. Finally, even during half term there was none of the scrambles for a sunbed. We often wandered out from 10-12 and there are plenty of beds available - so thats one stress less! The other thing... I've read people saying try to avoid bungalows near the road. Not sure why... we had bungalow 5A, and overlooked the sort of main road but even then it was quiet and gave us a remakable view of the ocean and fuertaventura in the distance - so this wouldnt bother me again. All in all a lovely property worth checking out. We are going to look at their other properties in other islands.

The houses are cool and comfortable with facilities on site. The restaurant is pleasant and there are events on some days for guests. It is at least a mile to the main shops , so a car is advisable if you want to cook anything. The reception staff are helpful and have a good standard of English.Super Dino have a gluten free range if you need it.

This complex is part of Diamond Resorts in Playa Blanca and is located in an extremely quiet area. unlike many of these complexes there are only 48 apartments and a couple of villas. two pools are available and one pool bar which serves food all day until 11pm. there is no restaurant as such, but meals are available and quite varied. Access is through a gated system and your apartment card lets you in and out. I have stayed in these complexes in most of the Canaries but found this one idyllic should you wish to have a quiet holiday. A car is advantageous which enables travel through the island to seek out the smaller villages all of which are pleasant and locals are hospitable. I would recommend this complex as a must for the older generation.

When we first arrived ,I have to admit we thought we were in the middle if nowhere.
But the apartments are great with everything you need.I was quite excited at having a washing machine and been able to come home for the first time ever with a full suitcase of clean washing .
The supermarket isn't very close by and there's always taxi drivers outside the main reception but they tend to take you down to the little supermarket on the sea front .The little pool bar serves food throughout the day and also on a night time and isn't too expensive .Theres a really nice strip of restaurants along the sea front and a lot of shops .The walk down there is fine but wouldn't really recommend walking back unless there are quite a few of you .
But on the whole a lovely place to go if you want a nice peaceful holiday

Room Tip: Ask not to be too near the road
