Esterel hotel, just over one hour's drive north of Montreal, has long been considered a paradise for winter sports enthusiasts. With the ski slopes, snowmobile trails and skating rinks nearby, it's perfect for anyone who thrives with what seems like 5 months of winter here in Montreal.
But come summer, the hotel still has many activities available (Beach volleyball, kayak, paddle board, peddleboat ($10/hr per person), and cruise boats for hire). There is also an 18 hole golf course.
But the main reason why most people come here is to just take it easy in the many outdoor spa baths available. There are more than 8 pools to choose from (90 degrees, 102 degrees, the 60 degree dip pool and "arctic shower").
The atmosphere is quite relaxed and zen for the most part. Since children are allowed at this resort, it can get quite packed in the 90 degree pool and noisy at night. So if you want it more zen, try to come here before school is out or the weekdays.
The suites are spacious, modern and very functional. This condo hotel has 2 sides, Evolution having bigger suites (and foldup beds) with long narrow balconies. The Emotion suites are somewhat smaller and more intimate, but with all the modern amenities of the Evolution side. The balconies are square and a bit more functional. The bathroom is just closed off with sliding panels so really, you have to be with someone that you're comfortable with to take these rooms.
All that aside, if you can take a lake view room in either complex, you will be rewarded with a great view of the lake. It is stunning at any time of the year. The rooms come with a 3 window gas fireplace and that is a great feature to have, winter or summer.
The 2 restaurants are great, serving great breakfasts (brunch on Sundays) and dinner. The all meals option comes out to about $70/person per day. Otherwise, the suites come with a small toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker, fridge, sink and all the necessary cutlery and plates you will need should you decide to bring food from home.
I have to say that we do come back feeling totally refreshed after even one night's stay at this hotel. The staff do their best to make you feel at home and work hard to make you a returning customer. So I would highly recommend this hotel.
