Is it not refreshing when - for once - two hotel truisms are found not to be true?
1) The best views are never from your room
Well, at Esplendido, not only do you get the fabulous views from any room so labelled, but there are generous communal sea-facing terraces for those who pick garden-facing rooms. We absolutely loved not only the views, but also the sensation of falling asleep and waking up to sound of the waves lapping the shore outside.
2) The better the view, the less you can trust the rest on offer
This hotel delivers on all other aspects, at least those that matter to me: food and drink, service and key facilities: pools, gym etc - none of us tried the spa, so cannot comment.
We lunched, dined and had drinks several times during our time at the hotel and were never disappointed.
The crowd when we were there: mix of well-behaved Brits, Scandis and Germans in their 30s, 40s and 50s, some with their children, some without.
The few critical reviews I have seen have focused on the disturbing presence of children...and those reviewers are right: if the mere presence of children unnerves you on your hotel stay, go somewhere else, preferably where they are banned!
For the rest of us, if you can take the odd bread-crumb on the carpet below your table as you have a breakfast at 10am and drinks/dinner after 8pm, chances are you will have a perfectly tranquil and pleasurable experience, enjoying the fabulous setting....
