Was a little worried after reading reveiws that everyone would be alot older in the hotel but they is a mixture of age groups and everyone is really friendly and talksto you. It is a very quite resort and a good 20 min walk to bars restarants. Our bungalow were spotless as were the rest of facilities. The staff are so friendly here especially costi the entertainment guy he always came round and made time to have a chat to you and showed us some card tricks, aslo alex in the restarant/bar worked very hard always asking if we were ok or if we needed anything.
Firstly, the bungalow was nice and clean though quite dated. We had a nice spot down near the sea. The restaurant was ok, with much the same food served every night, not much variety, unless you like salad. The snack bar was only opened twice a day 11-1 and 4-6. There is nowhere where you can get any thing to eat after the restaurant closes at 9.30. Brochures state that sandwiches are available behind the bar. Well, we asked every night and there were none!!! Just like the afternoon cakes and pastries, well, they dont exist. Outside the bar is a corridor type seating area that is very dirty, tables never cleaned. But, the weather was lovely, and we met nice friends.
Amazing place with polite and friendly staff. This was our 2nd 11 night stay and excelled on our last visit. Gluten Free option amazing. After trying other equivalent in the Canaries...the Atlantic Gardens far excel. Excellent sea front locaction with beautiful gardens..so disappointed we cannot book for next year due to the upgrade.
The location of the hotel is nice in a quite area right on the coast. It took just 40 minutes from the airport with thomas cook transfer. You can take a stroll along the coast for 10minutes before arriving at the first beach, and another 30 minutes to the main town were there is another beach and shops , restaurants etc. The wednesday and saturday market is 1.5 hrs walk so take a taxi for 5.5 euros. I was pleasently suprised with the bungalow, we were 3 adults and we had enough space. complimentry shampoo, shave set, toothbrush sets etc were given, also kettle, teas and coffees and water which was nice. A reasonable sized enclosed terrace at the back to dry clothes, or sit out of the wind ( its an extremly windy island) . On the 6th day we discovered hunge cockroaches, which we killed and flushed down the toilet, which was surprising as the bungalow seemed extremly clean. (see photos) and one night as we went out the electric had gone off, we presumed it may be a fault and would come back on later (powercut or something) at 12 we returned to the room to see still no electric, i called reception telling what had happened. His responce was ' So you decided to tell me now at midnight, and theres no technical staff now' which was not very professional. He eventually sent someone to the room, by which time i had found the fuse box and figured it had tripped out. The Staff work very hard and are generally friendly. The hotel is definately understaffed which affects getting served at the pool bar, sometimes waiting up to 10-15 minutes for a drink or getting your table cleared at snack times etc. The late snacks are a bit depressing as they put just a few sandwhiches and once they run out they do not refill them. In the mornings when they open the juice machines becareful, numerous times my drink was full of flies as it had not been clean well. The pool area is very nice, the choice of pools and jacuzzi is great and lots of sunbeds. The gardens are kept well and clean. There are literally 1 mens and 1 womens toilet next to the pool area which results in big ques and dirty toilets, espeacially at evening times. The entertainment (live music) in the evenings was good and enjoyable and the quiz made a change ,other than that i can not really say any thing about entertainment. Working in tourism for a long time i can say this hotel is not amazing but it is not the worst i have stayed in. With a little work and odd changes it could be fantastic. İ would love to come back if the small things were corrected, Which as i know they will be refurbishing soon.
Had a lovely time, great food and staff so helpful. Alex very kind even offered to get us coffee when we were waiting for bus to the airport. 7am in the morning. Rooms large and two outside area great. Everywhere so clean, wished we had found it years ago. Wish the hogging of the sun beds could be managed. Some selfish people left their towels all day - so selfish. Will return after upgrade such a beautiful location, lovely people.
My husband and I returned from our 8th holiday at Atlantic Gardens since it went AI adults only. We met several other guests from previous visits and many other returning guests who had been several times before. There are good reasons that so many people go back like us time after time. It's good value, it's relaxing with no kids and the staff are amazing. The 1st timers we met want to go back next year but we understand it will be closed for a refurbishment. Other reviews on here will give you room, resort and food details, and most are fair. If you are looking for some peace and quiet, a place to relax, have a laugh with like-minded people, look no further. We tried to say thank you to everyone before we left but it wasn't possible with staff days off. I hope everyone got the messages we left at reception! Our sincere thanks to Jose and his team.
My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights from 10-14 July 2017 and we had a wonderful restful holiday. The staff at this hotel are really friendly and couldn't do more to help, they really are an asset to the hotel. The rooms are so clean, air conditioned and more than adequate for their purpose. This hotel is spotless everywhere you look, the staff work exceptionally hard and are always cleaning and assisting guests. The pools are lovely and also very clean and every morning the poolside area is washed down including the beds. We would really love to return next year.
We are still here and love it!! Couple aged 23, I read the reviews as you do and was completely worried I even tried to change hotels I'm so glad I didn't, lovely friendly staff, quiet, rooms are nice with air con with a lovely pool area I agree with having a little bit of music too! There's many mixed ages here at the moment so I'm guessing it all depends when people go. Would definitely come back
The staff at the hotel are all friendly, attentive and work hard. Rooms are dated but clean. Food is good and varied. Bar staff very efficient. Pool area clean with plenty of sunbeds and parasols. A little too quiet round the pool maybe a little background music would be alright. Different entertainment in an evening some good some not so good, but I suppose you cant suit everyone. It is a little outset from the main area of Playa Blanca but a pleasant walk. Overall a very enjoyable holiday.
We have just returned from a delightful fortnight at the Atlantic Gardens. We are frequent visitors to Playa Blanca but have never stayed here before. We will certainly be back. From the helpful staff to the super food, everything was perfect. It is what it is. If you are looking for luxury this is not the plave. If you are happy with simplistic perfection, then thos is the plsce for you. Clean, guest centred, pleasant and friendly. Thank you for a lovely holiday.
