  • January 2014
I have stayed at the Escorial more than once, the most recent being for 6 days in January 2014. My room was large. clean, well-equipped (e.g. a complimentary fridge, good TV, good Wifi, safe, hairdryer, bathtub with shower, etc). The hotel offers a lovely (heated) pool, enough loungers and a roof-top solarium (which can get crowded) with its own shower and wc). There are also extensive keep-fit facilities in two basement levels, including a gym, salt-water pool, and another pool, sauna). Most guests have paid for all-inclusive or half-board: meals are served buffet-style in a large dining room: there ... was sufficient choice at every meal, and there is always a chef on hand to cook either breakfast or dinner dishes in front of you. At dinner there is always a seafood and a meat dish grilled to order. Even if you're not all-inclusive, wine and beer are very reasonably priced. The hotel staff are both friendly and helpful. read hotel review

    In any other hotel, in which i was so far, there was such a wide scattered activities, the pool over billiards, bowling alley, table tennis, tennis court (useless, as concrete field) and Midget Golf so quite everything included. Extremely brilliant is the spa area in the basement with various pools and several saunas! The roof terrace is very nice and invites you to relax on.

    From the airport is about 45 minutes with the shuttle on the way, and since the hotel was quite at the beginning of Playa del Inglés is, take the bus in front of the Escorial only a few other hotels. Even if two busy streets at the hotel, the traffic noise is but even in the upper floors not visible. Instead you can hear the sound of the sea. To the beach one is however about 20 minutes and the party district of Kasbah it is about 10 minutes

We were with the hotel and room very pleased. The spa was of course best, there we were able the time, after the sun went down, super good. The choice of food in the dining room was large. Especially delicious, in the morning was the freshly squeezed orange juice. However, the quality and taste of the fish and meat sometimes wishes unfulfilled. We would make vacation at any time again there. read hotel review

Contrary to some reviews here, i found the food was really varied and good! Of fresh fruit and vegetables, salads, fish and meat, as well as desserts, fresh squeezed oranges - tomatoes - etc. Juice was everything which the heart desired. You could even the fish and the meat directly prepared. What more could you want. The only drawback was the very poor wireless reception. However, at the end of my trip seen, that you a signal amplifier to procure can, what the lady at the front desk was despite reference to the poor front desk not communicated. Therefore a ... star departure for the competence. ☺ otherwise everything was great. The gym offers versatile opportunities. read hotel review

    There is a restaurant in the hotel and a bar. The tables and chairs were sufficiently available. Table cloths were after the 1st course not changed. As 2. to the table came to the meal had mostly a dirty table cloth. Cutlery you must also get them. This was very strange. The meat was mostly of poor quality. Cheap! No matter, whether fish, vegetables or salad, everything without large spice. A ray of hope was really delicious cheese and in the morning there was sparkling wine free.

    I don't understand, why so many guests the friendliness of the staff praise. We have never had such unfriendly staff as in this hotel. It was not greeted, even one noticed, if a table freshly was occupied, and one wanted to order something to drink. Better one goes even. The room cleaning was okay.

    The rooms have a good size. The beds were very comfortable and the large closet could additional pillows and there is also a safe, for you for a fee can be used. The tv you could also most german channels. The cooling of the beverages the room had a refrigerator and there was also a fan; the additional cooling could one against surcharge a air-con. In the bathroom there is a bathtub with shower, a hair dryer (which is in my opinion but a bit of an inconvenience), and a sink with large mirror. For relaxation the balcony use, with 2 comfortable chairs and a table. The free wi-fi, however, was partly very slow in the rooms, but that is not the most important thing on a holiday. :-)

    The food was very varied: every day there was something different and it tasted also great. For breakfast there were bread rolls, different sorts of bread, pastries, a wide selection of cold meats/cheese etc. , different coffee and juices, yogurt, scrambled eggs, churros, and more. The dinner consisted usually of a combination of fish, chicken, pork, vegetables, salad, soup, ice cream, chocolate and fruit. This was then to each evening into another variation was offered. At the safaribar you could many different drinks at reasonable prices. Plus for me was also, water without carbonic acid free of charge at the bar was available.

    Outside there is a large pool with many pool chairs, which was already in the morning from the sun dramatically illuminated. In the rear area there is a children's swimming pool and a small jacuzzi, but less used. There was a roof top whirlpool, which is a beautiful view over the surrounding area offers. In the basement of the hotel is the spa, simply only fantastic and can be used free of charge. Here there is a steam room, a large pool, a salt-water pool, jacuzzi, a relaxation room with water beds, a sauna, mud bath and other extras surcharge as massages. A floor more deeply gives it then still another room with bowling alley, billiards and poker tables, table tennis, darts, playstation and computers, which could be used for free. Animation gave it each day at the hotel, the always was different.

    General the hotel is very well located. To the beach it was about 10 minutes walk, which is in my opinion completely okay. Opposite the hotel is a supermarket, in which one with the main setting and right at the hotel there is a shop, in which one different article such as perfume could be bought. In the environment are also many partymeilen as the kasbah or anexo, that one to foot also could be reached quickly. Directly at the hotel is also a bus stop, if one times which other one to see would like. :-)

Breakfast even with sparkling wine and Wodka, freshly squeezed orange juice. In the evening with live cooking, chocolate fountain and so on. Who does not increase here, which go wrong ☺.

    We were very pleased in the Escorial. The hotel is in great condition, has a beautiful spa area, especially the salt grotto you should time. Billiards, bowling alley, internet stations were to our complete satisfaction. In-room wi-fi worked without a hitch. Cleanliness was in the area very good.

    Is about 5 - minute walk away to a small bay, the big beach about 10 minutes. There are plenty of bars, restaurants, supermarkets and shopping possibilities in the more immediate vicinity. At the hotel downstairs is a shop, the regularly good discounts on perfume and so on. There, you can right bargain.

    Room large enough and clean, however a bit dated. We had rooms facing the street in the 7. floor with sea view. It was at night by shouting vacationers a bit loud, but rather still sea view than the i on the other side on the highway must see.

    This is the largest point of criticism which i have. The breakfast was so far ok, a wide selection of sausage and cheese and which one for breakfast needs. The rolls were but always not fresh before. On evening were these crispy than for breakfast. All-inclusive we had not, thank god! In the evening, the food was very monotonous, every day there would be: chips, jacket potatoes, canarian potatoes (very delicious), rice, sauce bolognese, noodles and a two meat and fish dishes. Then there was still the grill, where the dishes were freshly prepared. Dessert buffet very small. Except once Paella, no typical country dishes what is a pity. We were there from 10 days 5 times outward to eat. Highly recommended in Meloneras (with the bus) in the restaurant la Bodega. Super kitchen, there is always a greeting from the kitchen and the farewell a liqueur. Very friendly staff. Therefore i would never stay at this hotel again. The atmosphere in the dining room i didn't like it. Outside were 7 tables (honestly) set for so much beds in the hotel - simply too little. If one sits down to a volume of table you shoos away, here you could just coffee. The waiter told me i had to the table himself, if we sit on. This is a absolute 'NO GO', as i come from this industry will be. The tablecloths were not always the säubersten. For me to be of a holiday destination, in which the whole year the sun shines but outside seating.

Good 3 star hotels

The Escorial is a nice 3 stars hotel with very good transport links. The bus stop is right in front of the hotel. If you rather quiet, should from the hotel but keep a distance and a place to stay for example Maspalomas select. If you go out at night and want to do something, is in Playa del Inglés exactly correct. The hotel staff was always very friendly and helpful. The rooms are big enough and were very clean. But what we didn't like, were the too soft mattresses and the twin beds, although the double bed were set ... up, but for a small movement apart. Also the rooms are extremely clairaudient. For people with easy sleep not recommended, since one also with closed windows and the balcony door closed the traffic and the music from the street. Also the tv in the room next door was unmistakable. Our room was otherwise however well equipped, the bathroom was large enough and had a small window. Just a shame, that for air conditioning and safe had to be paid extra. We had 'all inclusive' booked, which for us was well worth it, since we in the 14 days a lot of time at the pool and one evenings the cocktails and so could enjoy. The dishes were varied, with a stay of 2 weeks, but from the 2. week a little monotonous. For breakfast there was every day the same at the buffet, lunch and dinner were a bit more varied. Bread and rolls i have as well as didn't eat, as this just dry. The freshly squeezed orange juice for breakfast was great. At noon and in the evening there were sometimes also seafood, you can with 3 stars not granted. For us the meals were mostly but seasoned far too little. Also we would have like more fruits and a nicer decoration at the buffet is desired. For a 3 star hotel the offer is however completely in order. The wellness and sports area in the hotel is very beautiful and had 4 stars. Also good, that some activities such as Tennis inclusive. The pool and garden area was beautiful and the rooftop terrace with hot tub is also a bit special. To the beach it is about 5 -minute walk away, this is to be reached via stairs. The shopping malls and the dunes of Maspalomas are great to foot and more distant destinations are accessible reachable by bus. All in all we would definitely recommend to anyone, in the not too much expecting luxury. read hotel review

    Since we had all-inclusive it was nice, that we also times a few meters to walk to get to the beach - the path to the sea was like in the hotel description and not really difficult. That one only over stairs at the beach, was deliberately and the sets to the geographical conditions. For shopping there were many possibilities - all the stores we were interested in, we have also to foot. The distance to the airport is by car/bus about 30-40 minutes and pleasant drive.

There were many different offers of food, but unfortunately were very similar and tasted, for example, there was often a lot of fish, if one did not like, the choice was not large. the breakfast buffet was offered everything, which one needed, only unfortunately was the quality to be desired.

    Room was large and spacious. Condition ok. Bath also largely enough with a window. Flat screen tv. Air conditioning against fee otherwise ceiling fan. Beds were okay. This is the big but our room was on the 4. floor. 2 floors below was the kitchen. For someone like me who are very sensitive, this was 24 hour gebrumme a pain. Many sleepless nights. So take ear plugs. According to my husband is the gebrumme possibly a compressor or the fan. I have no idea. With open balcony sleep was not at all as there was left the four-lane street was and right any cocktail bar up early in the morning music. Next to it was a club the point and the early morning to one heard only loud people of the party into the hotel went. In the hotel was also few times rumgegrölle. Unfortunately i alone for this reason not to Playa del Inglés return or not in the hotel. For me means peace and pure halli Galli i schonzu home enough. Thought, if one something outside a hotel, you will find peace. Well you learn by your mistakes :-)

    Already alone because of the food and because of the staff the hotel deserves 4 stars! For breakfast, there were omelets in all variations, for example, i eat in the morning hearty and love the spanish bacon. But also a lot of fruit, cereals, meats, breads, etc. are there. I didn't miss anything! Different sorts of fruit juices there were, and the already very often highly praised freshly squeezed orange juice. I know many hotels you have to 1 Euro for this are charged! Oh and every morning there was sparkling wine and even vodka for konterdrink the next morning :-) every day there was always at the dinner a court what i never knew before. Lots of meat, fish, different vegetables etc. If steamed or grilled. Have a huge selection to now in no hotel. And so much delicious fish prawns etc.. We were very pleased! Every day there was homemade delicious pizza! I don't eat very gladly pasta and this was always in the hotel nice al dente! The food was always warm and it was constantly refilled. Small tip if you like flavor would under the salad bar you will find all the spices. You have to keep in mind, that the hotel for a variety of guests, there can one not everything überwürzen! I eat like spicy and aromatic and for me the food accordingly then also so peppered! For dessert, the ice cream and the schokobrunnen recommended. I found it in the restaurant was very clean. In front of the entrance a desinfektionsspender but also for example at the bar. Very good!

No matter, whether the service at the food or at the bar in the evening. The staff is really very hard! Inactivity nil return! The staff works really like the ants! Room cleaning was very good for spanish standards. Everyone must for itself see what is important to him. For me it was the toilet and i do not want to countless hair from our neighbors in the floor. Bed sheets were in the 2 weeks about 4 times changed, which i completely ok think. Will see who home 4 times the bedlinen changed in the period of 2 weeks or every day wipes, if you from morning to night work is!

    So we booked the hotel in the belief, that it quiet and centrally located. Centrally located, it is definitely... But quiet in my opinion not. Especially at night. If you do not have air conditioning and open balcony door wanted to sleep and the even a very light sleeper as is the relaxation factor zero! The way to the small beach bay was few meters to the promenade and perhaps no more than 1 kilometer and not as someone wrote 2 kilometer. Totally exaggerated! The beach and the sea, i think personally not nice. We were therefore mostly on the hotel roof terrace or at the pool. On the roof terrace has a marvelous view over the sea and the dunes! If a central likes then he a hotel over the Kasbah take. Please do not be surprised, that it was extremely loud and just lots of Galli is. In front of the hotel is a bus stop there was a bus. I have the feeling in Playa del Inglés everything is just the food. Find it annoying, that every restaurant a to rest wanted. But i must say, if you deny you directly in peace is left up to the next restaurant which only 2 metres away. We are also went out to eat and are mostly gone where was full, alone because you could see where the food was delicious. We now have several places saw, Playa del Inglés, Maspalomas, Puerto Mogan, Playa Amadores, Puerto Rico... For the first time on tropical defendendo. It was really okay but blew it i did not. Except the daily trip after fuerte to the Jandia Playa. A beautiful white sandy beach with turquoise ocean! But what i found great on the Canary Islands is the great air conditioning! There are many things to do without to sweat! Great!
