My family stated at the Esplai between August 23rd until the 27th.....Checking in at the reception was quite quick....Although it can be busy when the students come off the coach all at once..

The rooms were clean throughout and clean linen and towels were changed every day. The pool area is nice and is not as congested as I thought it would be...If you go as all inclusive....the snacks by the pool are plentiful.

The only downsides are the following....

The food isn't too bad....but I felt it was a bit repetitive and quite limited for a place which is all inclusive.

The entertainment was quite sporadic....which is a bit of a disappointment if you have a family. You may be better off in heading down to the Bon Repos hotel, which are under the same umbrella. You can also eat there during the day and evening if you are all inclusive.

My personal opinion regarding families looking to book this hotel for next year....There are a lot of students during August at this hotel. To be honest...They usually head out during the day whereby they have arranged excursions, from which the pool area is nice and quiet.

Yes.....it was a bit noisy at times....but during the night...I had slept well and wasn't woken up by late night revellers.

But overall......It is a nice hotel....the staff are very nice and courteous...the food is OK...but those with families looking to book here for next August....there will be over 200 or so students mulling around.

Access to the beach and shops are very easy and worth a visit in the evening when it is cooler...


Enjoy!!!!

This Hotel was just terrible! Our room got never cleaned except once where the cleaning staff used towels which they used for other rooms, this caused a really bad throw-up smell. So we asked the receptionist to get it cleaned again, sadly no one came to clean. The bed NEVER got changed!!! The staff at the reception is nice but everyone else is just rude. The food is very bad (except french fries and pizza), we had some eggs for breakfast, thanks to that they were no good anymore we spent the whole day sick in barcelona. The Hotel got really thin walls.. you can hear every word your neighbour's saying. Otherwise the location is perfect if you want to go out for clubbing.

We flew back wed 29/06/16 after a really super stay at the Esplai. I had read previous reviews and did wonder what we would be finding when we have arrived. I have to say from the moment we entered the foyer we could not have been treated any better. The hotel is super clean, staff start around 630 am cleaning the pool and outside. Our rooms were cleaned daily and sheets changed, so it was fresh and clean every day. The reception staff were amazing, arranging a packed lunch on the days we went out even made time to ask us how it all went.The pool side always had spare beds there was never the usual run to save them early in the morning The beach is pretty close 10 min stroll and really pretty empty. The hotel did have a few school parties staying but they were very well behaved and caused us no trouble at all. I am a vegetarian and my daughter is a vegan and we had a good selection every day for food, not at all cold as described in earlier reviews. Loved it and will be back best 3 Star I have ever stayed in and I have stayed in lots before. Thanks you Esplai for a lovely holiday

ok, we were a large group of adults and children taking part in a sports event, so we were booked into this hotel by the organisers. I know some of our group were a bit concerned by some of the previous reviews.

So, here goes......Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Even after several of our group lost their room cards!, the rooms were comfortable, the bathrooms clean and well stocked with towels and toiletries. They were cleaned every day. Housekeeping staff pleasant and polite.

Food....tasty and well cooked, haute cuisine but we weren't expecting that. It wasn't exciting, but there was always something to eat. Their paella is really good!

Noise.....we didn't get any from the local night clubs but there was quite a lot from other teams that were part of the same tournament.

As others have said....it's a 3 star hotel and has 3 star facilities!

Good value for a money, room and bathroom were clean and size ok, had balcony. Me and my boyfriend stayed there for 5 nights and didn't had any problems due this time, only on last night when group of teenagers who just arrived that day was partying all night right next to our room.
Reception helpful, location is good, 5-10 min from beach and shopping places, so as club and restaurants ( last one is right in front of hotel, very nice service and tasty food, recommend :)) .
The biggest problem in this hotel is food. We had there breakfast and dinner. Food itself is good, had quite a lot of choice , simple but good, the problem is it's not warm.. eating cold fried eggs every morning or any other food in morning or evening is not a pleasant feeling at all.
