I had asked for a room on the upper floors and was given one just above the hotel entrance looking across to another hotel and with a balcony which saw the sun for half an hour after sunrise. Asked to be moved but told hotel was full (which it probably was) and could not be moved for two days and... More

The hotel is clean and well-maintained. The rooms are cleaned daily, every second day new towels. As a big plus - spa facilities are included in the price. You won't be using them on a sunny day but it is a good activity if it is cloudy/raining outside. The food was disappointing. But this is what all-inclusive meals on Canarian... More

Being a young couple, we were in the minority at this hotel on our first visit and it was the same again on our second visit but hasn't put us off. We wanted a quiet, chilled out holiday with sunshine, all inclusive and a beach with bars we could walk to in the evening. This hotel and Gran Canaria provided... More

We stayed at Escorial for a week in June 2014. I chose this hotel after finding it through its high score on here and finding it for a good price on hotels4u (cheaper than booking direct with the hotel surprisingly). Location: very good, was not too far a transfer from the airport, which is always important for me; I don't... More

Wonderful Spa, nude only in the sauna & steam room so if you're a prude about your body stay away, great escape from the Egg & Chip crowd. Excellent location for the beach & sand dunes. We would definitely return.

This is a lovely hotel. It was clean, pleasant, spacious and comfortable. The rooms were large with a fantastic size balcony which incorporated a huge settee. The location is good, very close to public transport and supermarkets for essentials. The quality and variety of food served was excellent. Most of the staff were courteous and polite but a couple deserve... More

Hotel very clean and staff efficient. Good choice of food, however glasses dirty and cat allowed to remain in restaurant. Not much to do at hotel (if you can't waltz) but only short walk to good beach and several bars.
