Stayed at es pla for 5 nights with my husband 4th-9th Aug. Taxi from airport cost about 28euro but we managed to share the cost with 2 others so cut the cost a bit. On arrival to hotel it was very pleasent with pleasent reception staff. I had asked for double bed which we got but the room didn't have a balcony so we asked to be swapped to one with - with no problems what so ever. You do get all inclusive band that you have to wear throughout your stay.
The rooms were standard - nothing special, but were cleaned well during our stay. The bathroom looked recently refurbished and the shower was great!! Also there were a few free toiletries that I didn't expect..... Soap,shower gel + shampoo. I don't imagine a lot of the other hotels along the strip would have these!!! You do have a fridge/mini bar but don't get excited as you only get 2 bottles of water in it - no cans of juice or beer as we've had in hotels on every other all inc holiday we've been.
The foodhall is clean with various food on offer. Breakfast 8am-10am was the best meal we had, all your normal cooked stuff like bacon, english sausage, fried/boiled eggs, beans + toast. There is other things on offer eg cereal, fruit etc.
Lunch is from 1 - 3pm where you can get chips, pizza, pasta, burgers, soup + lots more.
Dinner was from 7pm - 9pm which was quite similar to lunch with additions like potatos, chicken + beef.
There is always something to eat so not going to complain, its just like what you'd expect from a cheap cafe!!
Outwith these times you get NOTHING which was quite a shock to me, no snack bars. So if you miss breakfast you have a while to wait for lunch. We made breakfast once due to being up half the night (what we went for) so lunch was usually the first meal of the day, sometimes the only!! Most other guests have the same idea so as you can imagine lunch at 1pm was very, very busy!!
There are two main pool areas at this hotel, one on the right of the hotel is non all inc and the one on the left is all inc, each having there own bar. Very annoying + very true to previous reveiws is that you are only allowed 1 drink per person..... So when my husband went for 2 drinks one for each of us the staff were'nt to keen to give him them. We got this sorted though so as when one of us went for the drinks we just got the other one to hold up the arm with the band on it. Never had this problem with any other all inc hotel before but..... There are reasons!!
My husband and I are 33 + 36 and we we one of the oldest couple there with a few exceptions!!! The rest of the guests are made of 18-30. There's a lot of younger with guests with friends staying at other hotels along the strip (non all inc) + as I have said es pla is the best of a bad bunch, so there was more than a few sitting round our pool, in our pool and getting free drink that weren't even staying at our hotel. They probably thought es pla was the hilton compared to where they were staying!! No joke!!
The pool was good and we always got a sunbed. There was only one day the pool was a bit dirty but think it was more stuff coming off the flowers/bushes surrounding the pool area, the next day it had been cleaned thourouly.
Location of the es pla is excellent!!! Its at the end of the srtip within a 2 min walk to the egg, taxi rank is just up from this again and all not even 10min walk to all the bars. It is right across the road from es paradis + eden so not far to stagger home + saves a small fortune on taxis. We had tickets booked for SPace on the 5th radio 1 and it cost us nearly 30 euro each way (not cheap) when your 28euro for 2 drinks in the club!!
We never paid for a safe in our room and don't know if we were just lucky or the girls in the previous review were unlucky but as far as I'm aware the were no breakins or robberys during our stay. Also it was a bit noisy at night (early hours) but we were up most of the time anyway. Infact on our first night me + hubby were out on the bacony with music on minding our own buisiness when security came to the door + told us to keep the noise down..... I couildnt believe it!! Definelty not a place for familys!!! I can't stress this enough. San Antonio is a complete party town and not for the eyes of kids!!
