Where do I start about this hotel? I have never had a holiday like this in my entire life, myself and the other three members of my party endured 14 nights of hell. Other people in the hotel were of the same view as myself and some even left the hotel and returned home early rather than have to endure any more.
The hotel rooms were grubby and of a 1970 appearance, paintwork and fittings were dirty and the overall appearance of the rooms was shabby.
The hotel receptionists were the most ignorant people I came across in my whole life and were forever pretending they could not understand you, when we went to the reception in the evenings to ask about anything or to make a complaint you were told to come back in the morning as they could ...

The hotel is advertised as 3 star but I would have difficulty in even giving it a one star rating.
The food was another endurance breakfast consisted of eggs, bacon, toast and chips yes chips (all cold I may add), they were good enough though to change the breakfast menu every second morning and on that day you could get eggs, sausage, toast and chips again all cold.
Lunch was a mixture of processed food and cheap cuts of meat mainly the fat off pork, processed chicken pieces and fish balls, if I had not known better I would have thought I had just paid for a kiddy meal at a fast food restaurant (although I should not be doing kiddy meals at fast food restaurants this type of injustice, comparing them with the food at Garbi Park hotel).
The only thing that saved us from having to endure lunch was the fact you could order a packed lunch which was very pleasant it consisted of water, bread rolls, fruit and some ham and cheese, we ordered packed lunches for the other 13 days of our holiday.
Dinner was a mixture of more slops if you were lucky there was no left overs from breakfast and lunch so they had to cook more food, but again it consisted of salad which I must say was a plenty with processed chicken nuggets or processed fish bites. Myself and my husband endured dinner for 4 nights before we decided to eat out of the hotel, this helped make the holiday a bit better as we did not have to eat the food at the hotel.
The hotel itself decided to let groups(20+) of single young males and females have accommodation at the hotel, as people know big groups like this like to party and let off steam so all other guests in the hotel had to endure lots and lots of noise, the screaming, shouting, banging and kicking of doors as well and running up and down corridors carried on to 6 and 7 in the morning. When we made complaints about this we were fobbed off by receptionists letting on they could not understand English.
In the evening we would usually like to sit on the balcony with a drink, we enjoyed this for a few evenings (even though our balcony looked onto an entry where we saw a considerable amount of drug deals taking place) before we had to run and take cover from being urinated on from the balconies above, again the receptionist took no heed of our complaints. By this stage we had enough and just prayed for the day of departure to hurry up.
The resort of Lloret itself was not too bad with plenty of shops bars and restaurants, but if you do decide to visit it ensure that the hotel you choose does not include the name Garbi in it.
I feel totally disgusted that this hotel can trade under 3 stars, we went to Costa Brava last year and stayed in another 3 star hotel, which was absolutely fantastic compared to Garbi Park.
I just feel sorry for all the other guests that will have to endure the hotel this season.
