“Amazing Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

This review is on the very very late side!! My friend and I stayed here in sept. 2011. We were picked up at the airport by Les who couldn't have been more amazing and insightful and funny! It was like riding home with a good friend. We were there when a bunch of other "irish folk" were also there so it felt like we also visited Ireland... we had chats outside by the bar at night about life and politics... we were youngest by a bit, and people there always made sure the "girls" were back. The House is AMAZING!!!! It is just so well done and comfortable you just want to move right it, as if you have been welcome there for years. Our room with two twins had this amazing little balcony and view of the med... and the beautiful backyard and swimming pool. The house is set among other pretty med style spanish houses.. just gorgeous. I have the picture of the view from the balcony at my desk at work.
Coffee in the rooms, drinks, a kitchen to cook. books to read.. friends immediately. Les and david are fantastic hosts... helpful and always willing to help but not intrusive in the slightest. We had a blast at the beach... walked there everyday and ate on the beach for a dinner and a few lunches. All the restaurants we tried in Mijas were great and local people that were so great to us despite our soso spanish!
Never had fresher squid nor had i had smoke sardines in the middle of the day on the beach! Mijas is great.... not crowded like the rest of the area up the coast. We did venture in to the nearby sights, but next time will skip the awful bus ride and crowded tourist areas and hunker down here!

Sorry for the late Review!! Love from NYC and SAN FRAN!! We cannot wait to visit the south of spain again and stay at your wonderful oasis!! Best to you in the coming year.

Room Tip: twin room was awesome situated in the back so no noise at night and a beautiful balcony. The bathroo...

My wife and I had visited l'Escala previously and enjoyed it so much we decided to return with the kids for a family holiday.

Different type of holiday, different time of year, different room - but the same relaxing experience! Les and David once again ensured we had a memorable stay. We made full use of the excellent facilities at the villa, balancing this with time spent in the immediate vicinity and the added liveliness and variety to be found in the main town. Thanks again - we'll see you next time!

Once more L'escala has never failed me. The hotel is ideally located near to some great restaurants and the beach. The standard of accommodation is imaculate and its all the tiny details that matter. This is the 2nd time I have stayed here this year and everytime I am made to feel more welcome that the previous. I have to say that Les and David are true professionals at what they do and all I ask is that they keep doing what they do best... They make the booking of the hotel easy and when you stay at the hotel they just make sure you are comfortable and both have an extensive knowledge of the surrounding areas and local information. I cant wait to return as it just gets better. Thank you so much for another fabulous stay.......

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable

Well what can I say.......PIECE OF HEAVEN ON EARTH, LOCATION A DREAM, 100 STAR ACCOMMODATION, BLISS BLISS BLISS..... I have no longer to spend hours looking for a perfect break/holiday in Spain through travel agents, brochures or on my computer because I have found it. I could repeat things that have already been mentioned in other reviews regarding this property but I am only going to say, BELIEVE THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL FACTS! Go and experience L'ESCALA for yourself.......it is an indulging extravagance!!!!!!!!

On the recommendation of friends we have just spent a fabulous week at this hotel. Everything was perfect from the beautiful setting, excellent accommodation and 5 star service. Les and David did everything to ensure our stay was trouble free and enjoyable. We have stayed in numerous hotels and without a doubt this comes out on top!
