We stayed here for 10 nights all inclusive as a couple and chose this hotel after reading the excellent reviews online. Check in went smoothly and after being given a choice of room, we opted for a high view overlooking the pool and with a fairly decent view of the sea. The room was clean and tidy with a very...

Quite simply this is the best value hotel I have ever stayed at. After reading so many positive reviews I was unsure that the property would live up to expectations, but it exceeded them on many levels. We stayed all inclusive for ten nights in July, three lads in a triple room. The room itself was 'cosy', but by no... More

The hotel is currently a 3* but by far is worth a lot more, the range of activities in the hotel that are free are amazing. The food is great but repetitive but there is always something to eat. A short stroll to bars and restraints as well as the beach. Only about 25 minute walk from the main yumbo... More

Stayed at the Escorial on the recommendation of neighbours who have visited the Escorial several times and we were very happy with everything about this hotel. The location was only two minutes stroll from the main sea walkway and beach. Forty minutes stroll takes you to the lovely San Augustine and the other direction goes to the Dunes. This was... More

I stayed at the hotel in April as a solo traveller. Checking in was a breeze with a very warm and friendly welcome. The staff re a real credit to the hotel who work tirelessly to please and ensure that everything is of a high standard. I stayed half board which was more than adequate. Meals were delicious and there... More

Very clean, very friendly and helpful staff who speak a lot of languages. Food is good, a lot of choice. Pity there are quite a lot of seniors and the bar closes at midnight. Fantastic animation in the evenings. The wellness center at -1 floor is just amazing! Comfortable terrace in every room with chairs, small table and an ashtray.... More
