Lovely staff who was really serviceminded. Ok food. Close to the beach and town. But the hotell was really worn out. I couldn´t close the door to the balcony and the view from my balcony was horrible, an abandoned poolarea. Pretty bad wi-fi. I had ants in my bathroom as well.

Accommodation at this hotel was provided as part of a tournament booking, so there was a level of trepidation about the Esplai after reading some reviews. I can honestly say that this hotel provided welcoming staff, comfortable rooms, tasty food if a little unimaginative, a good swimming pool and a great location for the beach. It is possible to always...

We were two friends staying for a week and the hotel service at reception, room and restaurant was great. Had luck and were on the sixth floor so there couldn't be heard any noise as I personally was scared after reading the reviews. Good food, really helpful staff and good location for the commercial streets and the beach! I would...

My family stated at the Esplai between August 23rd until the 27th.....Checking in at the reception was quite quick....Although it can be busy when the students come off the coach all at once.. The rooms were clean throughout and clean linen and towels were changed every day. The pool area is nice and is not as congested as I thought...

This Hotel was just terrible! Our room got never cleaned except once where the cleaning staff used towels which they used for other rooms, this caused a really bad throw-up smell. So we asked the receptionist to get it cleaned again, sadly no one came to clean. The bed NEVER got changed!!! The staff at the reception is nice but...

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.
