I stayed here for a week in August 14, a young 27 year old British couple from a common working class down to earth background with our 2 boys aged 4 and 2. Whilst the hotel is good, I wouldn't stay again. The staff aren't the friendliest in the world and seem to give priority to the Germans. My biggest... More

I stayed at Hotel Escorial between 2nd and 12th August 2014. I went there with my two teenage boys who are 14 and 16. I have not a bad word to say about this hotel which is rated as 3 star - like others I think it is more like a 4 star. From the minute you walk in this... More

Me and partner stopped at the Escorial in the 1st week of June and have to say the hotel is AMAZING!! We booked the all-inclusive option and although we're quite fussy eaters, we always found something to eat and I have to say, the live-cooking station was brilliant and always had different meats being cooked daily. We also found the... More

I returned to this hotel in June 2014, after staying there in June 2013 and May 2012. The hotel is extremely clean and well presented. Check in was very quick on each occasion with very friendly staff. The rooms are a little dated but they are very clean and towels are changed on a daily basis, if required. Food and... More

We recently travelled as a couple and stayed at Hotel Escorial for 1 week (half-board). The hotel has everything you need by way of facilities - there's a beautiful rooftop terrace for sunbathing which is a little quieter than the poolside and after the 3rd day we opted for the rooftop rather than the poolside. The beach is no more... More
