“EXCELLENT”
Reviewed May 31, 2011

Excellent hotel staff very friendly. The entertainment staff work realy hard day and night my 10yr old daughter and 3yr old son loved it. Plenty for them to do food was very good cant understand why its only rated as 2 star . The only reason i can think its a 2star is you dont get your beds made everyday or changed only get towels every other day. But i will deffenetley be going back why my kids are young enough excellent value for money and as long as my kids are happy then thats all that matters.

Room Tip: groundfloor looks great DONT EXCEPT M6 ROOM

Booked the San Eloy on the strength of many positive tripadvisor reviews and now they have another fan.

Arrived mid May and although the place was not full, there was enough people around to give the place a bit of a buzz. All the staff albeit from the bar/restaurant ,reception or the room attendants were all polite and more than willing to help if they could.

The restaurant is fantastic, some people have commented the food was a bit bland, I have to disagree as I thought they did a fantastic job given the amount of different nationalities they have to cater for, and it was mostly all fresh meat, vegetables and fruit too (obviously there were chips at every serving due to the amount of kids that are there)

Although it seems to be tagged a family complex I did notice some couples and groups of adults on holiday, I think that at this time of year that would be OK for them as there was about a 60/40 split of familys to adult groups but I think that the school holidays and hoardes of over excited kids may be a bit too much for this sort of traveller.

The animacion team were a revelation, when they are not getting people involved in games and activities, they are on the stage practising their routines for the various shows they put on. As with all the staff, it is amazing the shifts they put in. Also, they all do take a real pride in their work, something that is lacking in this day and age.

The only critical comment I could make is that mabe they could put come kind of safety matting around the stage when the mini disco is on as it only takes one small child to fall off it and they could be seriously injured (Oh and having the 'I am the music man' song with the dambusters theme could be very offensive to German holiday makers!)

Massive thumbs up to the San Eloy and see you next year!!.

everyoone always remembers us'even from the very first time, when my mum won MISS SANELOY! the catwalk.
the 6 time i went, it was raining but thats not there fault!
there food is absolutly delicious! it may be simple' but for little children+kids+teenagers its fine+its only what you eat at home anyway! so i dont no why your all moaning to be honest.
the spanish chef is great!

staff- the staff are the most sweetist/friendliest people ever!
they did give a man a job last year in august 2010, im not sure of his name but i think it begins with A, he was a very sarcastic man! who i dislike.
the lady at reception is a lovley lady too +the other too behind the bar (sam+lydia) they are lovley:)

the crew- entertainers!AMAZING MUCH?!
in the day time when you win a game, i must have 100 certificates i have won!+got at night:)

Dear Danielle

Thank you so much for your review on Trip Advisor. We are so pleased to hear that you have been to the San Eloy so many times - that in itself is a huge recommendation - you certainly wouldnt have visited us that many times if you and your family werent completely happy.

We aim to make sure our guests have a fab stay with us, and the whole team work together to make if fun, fun, fun all the way ....... we very much look forward to welcoming you back to the San eloy next week.

I´m sure you'll see lots of familiar faces as well as some new ones and that your stay will be as enjoyable as ever! Have a great holiday and we look forward to seeing your next review.

Take care, Sue

We love, love, love this hotel. We visited a few years ago and decided to give it another go out of season and we were not disappointed. We arrived on the 30th April which was the first day of the season, there were a few workmen milling around painting railings but it did not interfere with the holiday.

We had room 137 which is on the ground floor near the big pool, we have 2 double beds in the bedroom and 2 large double wardrobes. 2 sofa beds in the living room with a kitchen with a fridge, microwave and a 1 ring cooker. Bathroom a good size with a shower, sink, toilet and bidet.

Not much sun on our “patio” in the morning but this didn’t bother us as we were never in the room till after 3pm. Come the afternoon it was glorious and lovely to sit out early evening and have the sun right on top of you.

Food was excellent as per usual, lots of selection, always something for everyone, we went AI but the drinks are pretty cheap anyway (2E for a pint)

Entertainment was varied even though it was the beginning of the season, there are two new entertainers both from Holland who are training and doing very well. The other 3 entertainers are old hands at the job and are amazing.

A good mix of people, some Dutch, English, French and German and the entertainers translate into all the languages of the people staying

Loads of activities during the day and in the evening. We went into Tossa town centre on a few days using the free bus which now runs every 2 hours (rather than every hour which it was last time we went). Tossa is a lovely little Spanish town, lots of lovely restaurants with a gorgeous beach.

We went into Lloret for 2 days as we had never been before. Lloret is VERY built up, very “English” with 2 Burger Kings, a McDonalds and a load or arcades, nothing like Tossa which is lovely and quaint and only has 1 English place (Holly’s near the San Eloy bus stop, proper English sausages and bacon)

We have already booked to go back at the end of August and we cannot wait, it really is a brilliant hotel for people with kids, I would advise against childless people going. Although there were a few people there without kids who seemed to enjoy it.

Rooms 101, 102 and 103 are the best rooms, ground floor right next to the baby pool and have the sun all day. I shall be requesting one of these rooms next time we go in August A good mix of people, Dutch, English, French and German people all getting along

We are a married couple, 32 and 33 and travelled with a 13 year old and a 4 year old

Happy to answer any questions if you want to PM me

Great place to stay, our son was 15 yrs old when we went and the entertainment for them during the day is a godsend. All sport activities throughout the day and a certificate for winners in the evenning. This was our second visit here, its not the most exclusive and luxurious place I have ever been so if thats what you want then stay away, its full of families who have children and its ideal for them but I would not recommend for older people or couples wanting a romantic getaway.

Food was great on the all inclusive, never went hungry but again its what you pay for. Kids have unlimited ice cream all day and the snack bar does burgers, toasties, hotdogs and chips up until midnight which is great if you dont fancy the restaurant. Drinks ok too and coffee was really good.

There are two pools, the large on mainly occupied by kids so use the smaller one which is nice and quiet. No shortage of sunbeds but do what everyone else does and claim your spot.

Free bus into town.

All in all its a good place for families to play and relax. We came to the conclusion that it was like Butlins on the Costa Brava :)

really cant fault this hotel,only thing is it could do with a bit of updating...great place to stay with kids,but thats mainly down to the staff there,they are all fantastic....staff cant do enough for you and everyone is treated equally,animacion team really try to get everyone involved.chef at hotel is excellent,every meal was hot and well presented,something there to suit everyone...this was our first stay at san eloy(family of 5 plus aunt and uncle)and it wont be our last.dont understand 2star rating,as it is better than many 4stars we have stayed.....thanks to san eloy for a great holiday
