"Unique hotel built in Moor-style with great views"
We arrived to the hotel at around 9.30 p.m. via the hotel's own shuttle service, which greeted us on arrival at the airport. Champagne was offered on checking-in, then we were shown to a room on the ground floor. As we specifically booked a room with mountain view, we asked if there was one available, also on a higher floor. We then were shown another room on the 7th floor, which we liked, so our luggage was carried up to our new room.
The next morning we had our first real view of the hotel: it is a very interesting, castle-like building built in Moorish-style, with turrets and alcoves, balconies and terraces, all beautifully planted-in with palms, tropical plants and flowers. The cave-like lantern-lighting of the corridors gives a special ambience to the hotel, as do the various pool-areas and restaurants. It took us quite some time to explore the hotel complex, which extends over several terraces right down to the sea front. We found everything beautifully kept clean, from the public areas, pools to the bedroom.
Staff was also extremely helpful and courteous throughout. My wife even had a surprise gift from the management, as she celebrated her birthday during our stay: a small bottle of champagne, soft drink and chocolates were placed in our room on her special day, which was greatly appreciated!
All-in-all, we had a fabulous six days in the Jardin Tropical, which left us with long-lasting memories of this wonderful hotel at this resort.
