We usually visit Playa Blanca for our main summer holiday, but decided to treat ourselves to an extra week. Weather was much better than expected.
We had 5 full days by the pool with temperatures around 23 degrees with very little breeze. 2 days light rain which didn't stop you getting out.
We would normally stay at the Timanfiya Palace or the Natura Palace but as we travelled as a party of 9, decided on the more economical option.
Atlantic gardens consists of 1 bedroom bungalows. They are very clean although slightly dated. (not a criticism).
The pool area and surrounding gardens were very well maintained and very clean. There was no evening entertainment available but Playa Flamingo is only a five minute walk away, with the main town a good 25 minute walk.
The promanade runs all the way to the port and is well presented.

Nice and quiet apts and towels changed every other day and apts cleaned then to, staff were very heplful gardens kept immaculate pool cleaned evey day but was cool.
The weather was great a lovely walk along the promenade to several smaller coves. Good entertainment at the iberostar hotel about a ten minuite walk along promenade.

The rooms are basic but clean and tidy,there is a small kitchen with a 2 ring stove,1 bedroom,toilet and bathroom.
The sofa pops up to make twin beds so it easily accomodates 4 people,there is also a back yard which is enclosed so little ones can play out there if they want to safely.
The site is quiet and laid back and 2mins from the sea,there are 2 swimming pools which are a bit on the cold side but not that bad,the 1st pool is only 18inches deep at one end so my grandson could play in it which was great.
The on-site shop is dearer than supermarkets but so are most of them,there is a launderette which is handy with a 2 year old and you can get tokens from reception.The staff will help with anything if they can and if you want cabs they will ring them for you.Linen is changed twice a week and towels every other day,cannot comment on entertainment as did not go to any.
It is about a 10mins walk to the nearest beach and about half hour to Playa Blanca town.
I would go again but would prefer something closer to town as we're not getting any younger

Lovely big room, cleaned almost every day, small kitchen area but well equipped.
Quite a big complex, useful to have an on-site shop, although much more expensive than shop down the road.
5-10 min walk from the beach, would definitely stay here again.
