This was our first trip with our baby toddler, why we wanted relaxing holidays in a safe, relaxing atmosphere ideally meeting other families. After spending one night in the Barrosa Palace (see review there) we decided to change our booking in favour of the Barrosa Garden and didn't regret it for a second.
Right from the start the staff was amazingly human and friendly, and we seldomly passed any member who wouldn't smile or joke with our little one - not meaning a polite, trained smile you often find in luxury accomodations, but real hospitality. Especially noteworthy is Mrs. Pilli from the main restaurant who once even cleaned the nose of our son, tickling him at the same time so he won't compare.
Additionally, the Barrosa Garden offers two bright rooms full of safe toys, a whole pool area only for kids, special family rooms and an indoor pool that although not heated is a bit warmer when the weather outside shouldn't be sunny.
But what really set us into holiday mode was the easy going atmosphere during the meals. The team there faced the daily crowd of laughing, crying and crawling little monsters with a never ending patience while treating each and every stressed parent with all kinds of food in different stages of decay on their shirts with perfect professionality without giving the impression that the kids were behaving inappropriately.
We found this fantasticly easy going attitude among nearly every staff member from the bar to the kitchen - so if this was a smaller hotel it would be one of those we wouldn't write a reviiew on, hoping that not too many tourists would discover and spoil it for the next year. As it isn't, you can go for it as long as you can bear a small walk to the beach, as, between minor drawbacks such as slightly used furniture, etc., a beach facing location would be our only wish for the next year.
