Visited 5/9/14-12/9/14, for what we paid this accomodation far exceeded our expectations. Friendly reception staff, room cleaned daily & towels changed every 2 days. We were half board, both breakfasts & evening meals were fabulous, exceptional choice, meat & fish cooked fresh everynight. Freddie the entertainer was great with the daily entertainment schedule. Although we didn't use all the facilities... More

We stayed from the 15th of August for a week and it was great! My mum and I were on a girls holiday so enjoyed just relaxing by the pool, getting involved with all of the entertainment that was on offer and we visited a few local (non tourist) beaches which were stunning! I would like to mention the entertainment... More

The hotel is very well located, easy to find and first coming to the island, easy access to the road that takes us everywhere. A few blocks from Playa del Ingles, has a great restaurant, lots of choices in every meal, and a very nice spa. The only thing that could get better is the wifi signal inside the rooms.

I stayed here for a week in August 14, a young 27 year old British couple from a common working class down to earth background with our 2 boys aged 4 and 2. Whilst the hotel is good, I wouldn't stay again. The staff aren't the friendliest in the world and seem to give priority to the Germans. My biggest... More

The transfer time is approximately 30mins from the airport & the hotel is good location with just a 5 min walk to the promenade & the various beach bays & the gorgeous views... More

I stayed at Hotel Escorial between 2nd and 12th August 2014. I went there with my two teenage boys who are 14 and 16. I have not a bad word to say about this hotel which is rated as 3 star - like others I think it is more like a 4 star. From the minute you walk in this... More

Me and partner stopped at the Escorial in the 1st week of June and have to say the hotel is AMAZING!! We booked the all-inclusive option and although we're quite fussy eaters, we always found something to eat and I have to say, the live-cooking station was brilliant and always had different meats being cooked daily. We also found the... More

I returned to this hotel in June 2014, after staying there in June 2013 and May 2012. The hotel is extremely clean and well presented. Check in was very quick on each occasion with very friendly staff. The rooms are a little dated but they are very clean and towels are changed on a daily basis, if required. Food and... More
