The room is really big, large balcony with splendid view. Wide choices of food, great taste. Wine was too simple, so we bought one in nearest shop, that just on other side of the road. Only 5 minutes of walk to ocean. Bus station is located towards hotel. I liked staying here.

After facing a horrible UK winter and a hectic few months of work, my partner and I were both in need of a relaxing, sunshine filled break. We wanted to just unwind for a few days, soak up the sun and stay at a hotel that offered a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere. Thanks to the previous reviews on this site... More

Just returned from another wonderful holiday staying at the Escorial in Playa Del Ingles. Yet again found the staff to be as pleasant and helpful as they could be. Food was still to the standard as i expected with enough choice that you should be able to find something that you can eat, even if you are fussy. As all... More

They have also upgraded all the rooms with flat screen tv's with over 70 channels available inc sky movies mtv etc. My only grumble from last trip was the entertainment available they had at night but they...

My wife and I have just returned from a successful short stay at the Escorial. In many ways this was more a 4-star than a 3-star hotel. The rooms are quite large and well laid out, with two large singles placed side by side, but even with that there is plenty of leg room for two adults. The balcony is... More

We have stayed half-board in Escorial hotel for 2 weeks, end of September, with our 1 year old daughter. Room: was large enough to fit even the baby bed, leaving us enough space to move. The balcony was big, facing the bus station. We didn’t use the air conditioning and we didn’t really feel the need to have it. The... More

Hotel Escorial is a good hotel that delivers value for money. The rooms are spacious with basic furniture and, very nice, a fridge including freezing compartment. The changing of the towels is confusing: we didn't get any clean ones for 3 days, referring to the environmental policy, and then clean towels every day. You pay extra for airconditioning but we...

Had a cracking two weeks at this hotel in August with my wife and 2 children aged 15 & 12, and our two oldest children aged 20yrs. Stayed at the Hotel Eugenia Victoria (EV) sister hotel last year, and at first arriving wished we'd stayed there again. Thankfully after a few days we settled in, and realised that we’d made... More

The hotel is very good for a 3*. The Spa is not paid and can be used free of charge. the location is the BUT. If you want to go to the beach, you have to climb up and down about 10 flights of stairs located in a very steep slope. Not advised for elder people with leg problems. Otherwise,... More
