Travel date: September 2016 The Hotel Esplendid in Blanes, Costa Brava, Spain is the worse hotel I have ever stayed at. Please read this report carefully and do not get caught out as we did. Terrible food. Breakfast was practically non existent and of dreadful quality. Dinner was almost the same but not entirely dissimilar. All the food was stodgy....

Hotel is in a very poor condition, needs a renovation. We come in to the room on the arrival and it was very smelly, air conditioning didn't work. Towels changed only every 2-3 days, sheets were dirty with stains on it. Big bugs were wondering in the room, food is tasteless and the same every day. No hair dryer in...

We booked this hotel last minute so our expectations weren't high. I couldn't find any recent reviews which gave cause for concern. However I needn't have worried. The Esplendid ticked all the important boxes - comfy bed, clean bed linen and towels, daily cleaning, friendly helpful staff and I thought that the food was particularly good with lots of variety....

This hotel is mainly reserved by schools, children and teen colonies meaning nights are hardly ever quiet : during our stay, we were awoken at various hours in the early morning (2am, 3am, 4am, etc) and many other hotel residents were out in the hallway to ask them to be quiet. The outside swimming pool is non heated yet pleasant...

Booked a room at the Hotel Esplendid at the last minute at a very cheap price, so had quite low expectations about what we would find. What we found was a comfortable hotel with friendly staff and good food (price included all meals). Contrary to other reviews alcohol was served in this hotel. The room was dated but clean. Wifi...

The hotel is clean, the pool is disgusting, all green and dirty at the bottom. Id booked for two adults and a baby, a four month old. We were put in a room with 3 single beds?? Luckily we have brought our own travel cot, no offers on one of theirs! No facilities in the room to make bottles, asked...

Visited this hotel last year with family and friends (group of 50-60 people). Always wanted to write a review as after being there and having read the 1star reviews, i found them pretty unfair. After my current experience in Italy, i thought i will definately praise Hotel Esplendid! The rooms were adequatly big, so were the bathrooms. For a 3...

Visited from 7th August til the 11th with a school trip. My first impressions of the hotel were that some of the 1* reviews were very unfair and that it was more of a 3*. However, a number of things changed this throughout the course of my stay. Food and drink: We were on a half board basis. The breakfast...

Arrived at around 7pm with approx 30 pupils, we were all very tired from a long journey and very hungry. After a quick dip in the pool (which was beyond freezing) we headed up to our rooms. The layout was reckless and 3 beds had been squeezed into one room, the shower had no barrier to stop the water from...

Every corner of the hotel is kept pristine and perfect and the floors and walls are kept well tended. There are holes in the walls etc from previous residents but unfortunately nothing anything could be done about with ease. There is fine art or paintings in every room and kept dirt free after the daily visit from cleaners. Only major...
