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

Handy-man dealt with padlock problem minutes after we asked for assistance. Modern TV with access to Sky News. Dining room staff were cheery as well as efficient. Great selection of food - self serve areas were kept very clean and well... 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

Wanted a quick and relatively inexpensive holiday and found Gran Canaria the hottest in May within about 4 hours flight time of the UK. We arrived seamlessly via the big orange Gran Canaria bus transfer service and were greeted by the Escorial reception - straight to our room via the lift (thankful for a nice high room with a partial...

I could not fault this hotel. Usually I find the buffet style food to not be hot, at this server, not only was it hot it had temperature gauges over each item . The spa, dead sea pool sports wi-fi computers and games consols were all free. The hotel is situated near the bus terminal, shopping centre and prom with... More

Spent 10 days in this Hôtel in April. We had a family room on the ground floor, with a small deck and the view on the garden. The room was very big and nice, even if the decor is a bit old fashioned, and the wall are thin (neighbours!!!). The bathroom was ok. On the plus side, the cleaning is... More
