Flash night club right opposite rooms over looking pool Friday and Saturday night couldn't sleep for noise. Food repetitive,not enough room in restaurant for the number of guests cueing up for meals. No curtesy room if you have a late flight. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone,

Stayed here with my wife mid September for 1 week. This is our second visit to this hotel, the last being in 2014. The hotel is ideally situated for all facilities like bars, restaurants, theme park, municipal park etc. The staff are friendly and polite, the cleaning staff do a thorough job and the hotel is very clean. The food...

Excellent hotel nice and clean, polite staff. Beds made every morning and room mopped out. Not far from the centre of town. Plenty of bars, shops and a lovely clean beach. Food can only be described as ok.

The Hotel wasnt the problem it was the food plus the staff! Not enough variety of food, always cold and sometimes even raw. The staff were as miserable as sin and obviously didnt want to be there any more than we did. I dont think that they liked the British everything was in Spanish in fact I was quite surprised...

Staying at the California gardens is a very average hotel, rooms okay,beds ok. No remote control in room,no hairdryer and no wi fi,they are all extras which you pay for. Didn't like breakfasts,not enough choice,dinner okay,but have to queue for your drinks,no wine waiter.Dont think I will go again,more like a 2 star.

Set back around 10 min walk from the beach. 2 min to the start of the shops and bars etc. Right next to an open air nightclub which thankfully was closed when we were there.
