Having been to Es Cana three years ago and loved it we decided to pay Es Cana another visit this year. When booking we remembered the panorama hotel which we thought looked great from the outside so thought nothing off booking our stay there. The reception area is clean, light and airy, things looked promising! Our room however, was small and cluttered. There was no drawers/cupboards in the room just shelves instead of bedside cabinets, and a wardrobe with a few cubby holes. The cleaners appeared in the room everyday to make the bed which was nice. The door to the bathroom didn't close properly because it had clearly had some water damage. The air con in the room was crap and placed in the door way rather than in the main part of the room! When booking the room we paid a bit extra to guarantee a double bed and a view over the pool which we got but it didn't feel like we had value for money. The pool area was nice and clean but could of done with being bigger to accommodate the size of the hotel. There was meant to be a no reservation of sunbeds policy however the hotel staff never enforced this, so even though the majority of tourists staying there were british, beds were continually reserved daily. We even spotted a large number of people reserving beds at 6am!! There was entertainment all day long by the pool daily, it was awful, very patronising and extremely childish!! I've never stayed a Butlins but a lot of people we spoke too said it resembled them. The hotel felt very much like an old peoples home, a large number of people staying were well in to retirement, the must have accessory of the season was a walking stick. I don't mean any disrespect but as me and my partner are both in our 30's we felt very much out of place! The restaurant was terribly disorganised, cramped and the air con never worked very well. The food was awful and repetitive, by the end of our second week we dreaded it. We did eat out a number of times for a break but as we'd paid for half board we felt we were wasting extra money so, in the end we just made do and looked forward to getting home for a decent meal. Apparently next year the hotel is changing to an all inclusive, I dread to think what that will be like, we certainly won't be finding out. In a nutshell if your over 60 and enjoy kids entertainment this is the hotel for you.
