We decided to return to the garoe after the good experience we encountered on our last visit. The hotel is an excellent solid 4 star hotel, beautiful gardens and spacious rooms.
The staff are really first class and Mr Hernandez runs an ultra proffesional team. The guests are mainly middle aged Germans but this is fine. The pool area is a haven of quite, beautifully looked after by Gustavo. He is really a credit to the hotel, you won't find a cleaner pool area. The general housekeeping is fantastic, the hotel is immaculate and our maid left our room tidy clean every day. The waiting staff are pleasant and hard working. Many I know have been working here for many years.
The choices at dinner were extensive. I do think it was maybe not as good on our last visit, too much pork and at times the hot meats were not replenished quickly enough.
The salads and soups mind you we're excellent. Entertainment on a night is low key, some nights a duo. Trad. dancers and a magician. The hotel is in a nice quite residential area about 10 mins stroll to bar/restaurant.
So, as you see the Garoe continues to get great ratings. If you yearn a nice relaxing break in a really good GENUINE 4 star hotel, you won't go far wrong.
Some people have a problem with Puerto, being unfashionable and now in the shadow of the ultra chic resorts in the south but for value it's unbeatable. If the north appeals to you the Garoe is still the No1 choice by many.
