Wanted a quick and relatively inexpensive holiday and found Gran Canaria the hottest in May within about 4 hours flight time of the UK. We arrived seamlessly via the big orange Gran Canaria bus transfer service and were greeted by the Escorial reception - straight to our room via the lift (thankful for a nice high room with a partial...

I could not fault this hotel. Usually I find the buffet style food to not be hot, at this server, not only was it hot it had temperature gauges over each item . The spa, dead sea pool sports wi-fi computers and games consols were all free. The hotel is situated near the bus terminal, shopping centre and prom with... More

Spent 10 days in this Hôtel in April. We had a family room on the ground floor, with a small deck and the view on the garden. The room was very big and nice, even if the decor is a bit old fashioned, and the wall are thin (neighbours!!!). The bathroom was ok. On the plus side, the cleaning is... More

Stayed here September 2014. Hotel is nice, welcoming staff and reasonable sized rooms and balcony. About 90% of guests were German which didn't affect us but it was nice to hear English voices after a week! Our room was facing a construction site but didn't cause any problems. Room had no tea/coffee facility. Sometimes room was not cleaned until really... More

We had a bath with shower attachment and the room had a safe, however there is a charge for this. There are no tea/coffee making facilities we had a modern tv with... More
