    I was surprised at the variety of the buffet and the price we paid to stay 5 nights was really cheap. It was close to the beach and lots of shopping. I would stay here again.

    Inside pool was great according to our 5 year old doughter. The clown (program for kids) was absolutely super! There were many cleaning ladys and everyone from the staff were hard-working. Hotel was neat and peaceful. Big plus also situation for the bus stop.

    We didn't like the food. For example the vegetables were as if dry. Wall-to- wall carpet made the hotel room stuffy.

  • Family with children

    Superb spa facilities - relaxed attitude and the staff are always willing to help. The food was really great - variety, good quality and plenty at every meal. A great hotel for all age groups including teenagers! The standards of cleanliness were high in all areas and the outdoor spaces and pool are well maintained. The kind of hotel you would be happy to recommend to friends and family.

  • Group of friends

    Great spa, food a bit hit and miss, but overall enough to choose from. All in gives you free drinks, ice cream all day through and the chance to eat cake four times a day! Free computers with internet, good animation (something different every night and activities like bowling or darts through the day), also for children (every night a mini disco). I got the impression they follow up on the feedback online (and the form you could fill out in the hotel) and do their best to improve.

    * The personnel at the reception desk. Some were willing to help, others seemed to want to spend as little time on you as possible. Overall not very generous with smiles and friendliness. The other staff were very friendly and helpful. * The building: I had the impression it was a very old building they were trying to patch up. On a few places they were actually working on things, which was a bit noisy sometimes. * Noise: you could hear the kitchen (I think everywhere in the building). But if you closed the bathroom door and window, it was ok. * Aircon: not adjustable, so it was either too hot or too cold in our room. We always slept with the windows open, but this was not ideal as there is a motorway behind the hotel and a street in front.

    Hotel Escorial was beyond our expectations for a three star hotel. Staff very friendly, hotel clean and location to beach,public transport,and shops excellant. I stayed for a week with my wife and we both enjoyed it.The food was very good and facilities outstanding. The spa was great and free to all guests except for treatments.The indoor pool was nice and warm with jets all around to massage your body. The bonus was the salt lake cave which was based on the black sea. A warm salt water pool which the body would floated on and great for relaxation. Also a roof top sunning area with a warm pool ( except it wasclosed for repairs). The even had a electronic weighing scales in the lobby to check the weight of your luggage(Important when fyling Ryanair). I would stay in this hotel again and recommend it to anyone. Regards Kieran Ireland

    Roof top Pool was closed for repairs.

    The staff very prompt, friendly, the towels where changed every day, good and diverse. Good beds and superb views from the balcony.

    They don't wash the room floor very often.

    Everything works: food, cleaning, reception, kindness of staff

    The noise insulation of the rooms could be better. Arrogant neighbours arriving from town at early morning hours waked their neighbours on several nights with their noise. There should be more room for evening shows and audience. Now only the first to come can see the shows well.

    Facilities were surprisingly good for a 3 star hotel (eg. Wellness/spa, decent food, free parking), the hotel was clean, staff were friendly and efficient, entertainment was available (if you wanted it) and the proximity to the beach was as per description in the website. A family friendly hotel which I would consider using again.

    One minor thing - the room key stopped working 1 day before we were due to check out - however the problem was quickly resolved by staff.

    Great hotel. You could easily say it is a 4star hotel, especially considering the gym (it can compete with some 5 star hotels), wellness spa and gaming area. Entertainment every night. Food was very good and selection is excellent - try lots of Spanish dishes. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were renovated a few years back, so nothing bad to say. I'd definitely recommend and would go back tomorrow. Thanks to all who took good care of us. We'll be back in September.

    The bus from the airport dropped us right outside, no need to use a taxi. Hotel facilities excellent, indoor and outdoor pool, games room, entertainment, but plenty of space to sit and relax. Close to beach and bars, shops etc. Plenty of choice of food in buffet restaurant. We had half board, but there was the opportunity to upgrade to all inclusive when we arrived. Close to bus station so easy to get about by public transport, also bike hire nearby.

    Very steep steps to beach, so would not be good for anyone who would find this difficult.

  • Family with children

    It has a lot of options to offer: big choice in buffet, spa area, swimming pool, gym etc. and all not for a big price.

    However, it is really low budget choice since the quality of all services was not very high. There were some small inconveniences from the very beginning. The staff wanted to keep our passports upong arrival and we had to pay extra to use a safe and air conditioner (although not a big amount of money). Towels are also not included into the price. Everywhere deposits, it is simply annoying. The air conditioner was very loud and located too close to the bed, we could not sleep with it. On the other hand, there is some disco near and loud music till 2-3 am and we could not keep the balcony door open as well. As the result, 7 sleepless nights...

  • Single

    Staff is friendly and helpful food is quite good but more focused on ''english/germans'' meals location is pretty good just 5 min walk to the beach

    You have to pay for air conditioning if you want to wifi connection on the rooms is crap the upgrade from half to full board is more expensive than if you pay the food by yourslef over there you have to pay 20€ if you want to leave the room after 12 pm when you are not gonna spend on food and they are saving the dinner..I Think is overprice for a couple of hours more stay when they dont invest more on you..
