We flew back wed 29/06/16 after a really super stay at the Esplai. I had read previous reviews and did wonder what we would be finding when we have arrived. I have to say from the moment we entered the foyer we could not have been treated any better. The hotel is super clean, staff start around 630 am cleaning... More

ok, we were a large group of adults and children taking part in a sports event, so we were booked into this hotel by the organisers. I know some of our group were a bit concerned by some of the previous reviews. So, here goes......Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Even after several of our group lost their room cards!,...

We have done our research and based on the reviews picked the best seller. However, our hotel had been changed to Esplai last minute by the holiday provider. To be honest, we were very disappointed with the change based on Esplai reviews. We expected crowds of drunk loud teenagers:)) It was nothing like that! At 11.30pm the balcony and outside... More

The hotel was in desperate need of a refurbishment, with all of the fittings and fixtures having seen better days. The rooms were also showing the need for a facelift, once again more a 2*+, rather than a 3*. The food in the restaurant was very bland and repetitive, and every meal was "luke-warm" at best. Luckily for us, my... More
