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

Just returned from a two weeks stay at the Escorial and had a great time. Our room was quite large with a big balcony and comfortable patio furniture. 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

I traveled first time in my life to Canarias. Hotel Escorial made my first visit very pleasant. Very friendly staff and we had nice room with a view to the beach. Good food and very good shows and bands at the stage of the hotel. I recommend this hotel especially to couples travelling without children.

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
