    “Lovely hotel in a great location”

    Me and my husband stayed at the Jandia Playa from 6th October for a week. We booked through First Choice. Inital reviews seemed to suggest the airport transfer would take around 90-120 minutes. However, we got to the hotel in just over an hour, which was great as we were in time to get to the restaurant. Positives: - great location overlooking a beautiful sandy beach (it is near a nudist beach in case this bothers you) - decent sized resort with 3 pools, large buffet restaurant, snack bar and a number of bars including a pool bar - more than enough sunloungers to go around, there was no need to get up at sunrise to reserve one and the hotel had signs discouraging people from doing so. Some did but this was never really a problem. - good selection of food in the buffet - I particularly liked the salad and fish items. There was plenty of different types of food to satisfy all appetites. Yes some items were occasionally cold i.e scrambled eggs but it’s difficult to keep these things warm so it wasn’t too much of an issue for me. - good selection of alcohol and cava available at all times of the day! - clean decent sized rooms - we were in block 6, room 6203. We couldn’t have asked for a better location as it was right next to the pools and minutes away from the bars and restaurants with a great sea view. - plenty of entertainment during the day for all with energetic happy staff who encouraged you to get involved but didn’t push you if you didn’t want to - there is a small shopping complex at the bottom of the hotel and a lot more shops within a 10 minute walk. Morro Jable was a pleasant 45 minute walk away. Negatives: - I like a hard bed, mine was quite soft with a lumpy pillow. I didn’t sleep as best as I would like but I guess this is down to your own preference with mattresses. - check in - we arrived just after 9pm. There was only one lady on reception checking a lot of people in so it did take longer than we would have liked. - slippery tiles around the resort. If you have wet feet and no shoes/flip flops on, you’ll find the tiles are quite slippery so be careful. I’m surprised we only saw one lady fall over whilst we were there. Overall we had a great time and really enjoyed our time at the Jandia Playa. I’m not one for returning to the same place year in, year out but I wouldn’t hesitate to go back next year as we enjoyed it so much. It scores 4 stars because of the bed and the long check in but if these were not an issue, it would have easily been a 5 from me. You won’t regret staying at this hotel. I hope you have as great a stay as we did here!

    “Hotel”

    Me and my wife are going home today, I would like to say that this hotel is great apart from the hill down to shops , but a taxi to the old town is 5 euros, and the Chinese we went last night was spot on , lovely chicken curry and salt and pepper chicken 👍

    “A few things to think about before you book!”

    Firstly I will say we had a great holiday, BUT, I really don't mean to be picky, however a few thing to think about if your going here. Kids club was great, my wee boy is six and really enjoyed it, always felt welcome and included. The buffet restaurant was great at breakfast but lunch and dinner seemed to be the same every day. Alot of pork, very little seasoning, and alot of things very overcooked. The rooms are incredibly hot as the air conditioning is practically non existent, great showers though. Very soft beds, to the point where my hips ached, although my husband slept ok, apart from the heat. Huge ques every night at the pool bar where the entertainment was. Lots of tiles need replaced on the floor of the pool, can be quite uncomfortable. Entertainment staff were lovely but buffet restaurant staff were a bit aloof at times, I know they're busy but a smile wouldn't hurt (not all staff). Not alot out side the hotel. The beach is stunning though, but lots of nudests, just so your aware. On the whole a good holiday, but not sure if go back. We were floor four and seemed to be Adove the kitchen so a droning noise from machinery all the time and lots of noise from deliveries which started very early. Lots of good points, but don't think I'd go back. Also the almost two hour transfer from the airport isn't for everyone.

    “Not a 4 star!!!!”

    Returned from this hotel on 2 October and don't get me wrong we had a great time with plenty of things to do but in my opinion the food let it down slightly. Didn't like the idea of having two sittings for dinner never had this before in other hotels. There is a language issue with some of the reception staff but when we did report an issue it was sorted very quickly. The cleaning staff do an excellent job and can i just say Rosa (think that's right) was so friendly and was always happy and smiling. We met some lovely people and had a great time but we possibly wouldn't stay here again.
