“perfect experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

stayed at the espada twice and enjoyed the hotel and surroundings, we always rent a car and the parking is free, most hotels charge 10 to 15euro per day.
the food is excellent as is the staff, the house wine is a bargain @ 8euro
also the local bars/resturants are very close and you must try FRANCOS BAR PIZZA just 50mts
on the right out of the front entrance, his pasta/pizzas are the best, every night the italian community visit .
we will book the espada for our next visit cannot fault it

Back from staying at the Pez Espada. On arrival met by friendly and effecient staff both in the the Reception and Dinning Room. We had a room overlooking the Gardens 619 this is an extra but worth paying a bit more for the view was lovely overlooking the gardens and also a good view of the sea.The food was good plenty of variety, dinning room staff friendly and effecient lovely and clean tables always well set out.The hotel has a very relaxed feel close to the beach and other amenities, have all ready booked to go back next year hopefully we'll get the same room this as been requested a big thankyou to all that made our holiday so enjoyable .

Room Tip: High floors overlooking either gardens or a sea view

Our second stay at the hotel and we still consider it a great place to stay. The food was even better than our stay two years ago. The House wine is an excellent €7.50 The inhouse entertainment is basic but is geared towards the average age of the clients. The position of the hotel is a great asset, loved gazing out to sea as I relaxed on my sun lounger. Staff were helpfull and pleasant at all times. Only €25 from the airport.

This was our 3rd holiday at Pez ESPADA. We love the ambience of this hotel, and cannot fault the service, cleanliness and friendliness of the staff, they cannot do enough for you to guarantee you enjoy your holiday. However, the bedroom we had definitely needed updating! It was still back in the sixties, rather out of date and old fashioned, and desperately in need of refurbishment, especially the carpet which was very soiled. The bathroom, however, was really a nice size with a 4-piece suite, and nice toiletries. Other people we spoke to during our holiday also commented on the sad state of the bedrooms, so it obviously wasn't just us! The position of the hotel is great, which is why we return - right on the promenade, with nice walks either way. With a little updating and a few extras thrown in (like tea/coffee making facilities, pool towels provided, free safe etc), this hotel could be a 4* plus rating.

Room Tip: High level, main building - lovely view.

Just back from a long weekend at this hotel - it was excellent. Apart from the front desk staff (who seemed tired and bored!) the staff were friendly and welcoming. The hotel is on the sea front, so views from the balconies were lovely. Although the hotel was busy it is spacious so we never felt hemmed in, a quiet area can always be found. The rooms were comfortable and perfectly adequate - ok a lick of paint here and there wouldn't go amiss but we were not there for the decor. The bar area was great, both inside and outside. Breakfast choices first class. Entertainment was good and varied but it did not intrude if one wanted a little quiet time. Two of our party had a massage, which was good and excellent value - and there are two massage chairs which were amazingly good. Pool area looked very inviting and was kept very clean and tidy. Great location - a short stroll to the port in one direction, plenty of bars, restaurants and shops, and in the other direction and a slightly longer stroll, is the town. Shops, restaurants and bars galore. I would return there is a heartbeat.

Room Tip: I saw two rooms both of which were good - I think we were in the newer part of the hotel, away from...

We took my mother in law to this hotel and it proved a good choice. The location had a flat walk in either direction from the hotel garden along a promenade walkway. Good bars in either direction. Food in the Pez was very good in our opinion;especially the varied salads etc.

The room had a decent sized balcony, enough for 3 of us to have nightcaps.

The garden had fixed umberellas, so the sunbeds moved to get the shade or sun. They are set on grass which we prefer.

Overall this ticked all our boxes and we would return here.

Room Tip: paid a supliment for a garden view, Good view over pool garden and sea to the side
