    Breakfast was ok but could have more variety of hams and cheeses for example.

    The croissants were great! Bedroom and bathroom were comfy and clean. Location of the hotel was great, very close the beach and main attractions. Staff helpfull

    The sign above the breakfast buffett " do not remove food from the restaurant ". Not very friendly.

    Breakfast did not have good quality in cheese, meat, yoghurt and sweet cakes. Bus stop outside the front where buses stopped with the motor going on. Once a tourist bus stod there for one hour with motor on. This was very disturbing.

    Restaurant was very good and not expensive.

    Parking too expensive and parking your car may take a while due to very small parking spaces.

    Good location, 5-minute walk to both the beach and town center with restaurants/bars. Simple room and bathroom but offered everything you need for a short stay. Everything was clean. TV, air con and wifi all working well. Friendly staff. Car can be parked in hotel's own garage (expensive at €12). Simple but decent breakfast (coffee, juice, toast or croissant for €3.50).

    One of the waitresses in the restaurant was very rude abrupt and not friendly at all and my wife ended up in tears! We were offered a free meal as compensation, but declined as we didn't want to go back a second time!!

    The lady behind the bar was very nice, polite and helpful.

    Nothing hotel wise. Zarautz is a strange place with a touch of xenophobia about it.

    Quirky room. Excellent parking facility with lift to all floors. Excellent breakfast. Easy check in and check out. Easy links to motorway.

    It cost €9.50 to park and we had to use the facility due to no on street parking in the area (€5 would have been a fair price)

    The bed was wonderful - the best ever. The staff were very helpful. The parking was good The fridge was well stocked and not a rip off. I love the shutters on the window. Being close to the station and a train to Donostia is great. No need to pay more for less and stay in Donostia . Great surfing beach breakfast was good all in all a very nice town and a great hotel.

    The car park underground is tiny with lots of posts, unless you have a small car, no chance to park in it. Because of the location the on-street parking is virtually impossible, drove round for 1 hour before finding a space! Room was OK, but bathroom was tiny and you could not swing a cat around in it. Breakfast was OK, But overall quite expensive for what you get. Ate in the restaurant in the evening, they do not cater for kids and no English menus. Need to learn Spanish.

    The location was good, 2 roads from the sea front. The hotel was clean and functional

    Good to have garage parking, though it was quite expensive - as were the breakfasts.

    From the really helpful staff with a good command of English and French, to the lovely comfortable room with balcony, this was a delightful hotel in a quiet but reasonably central location in Zarautz. It was good to have a lift as walking was difficult for me at that time. The bus stop for catching the frequent buses to and from San Sebastian was close to the hotel.

    We were unaware that Calella is the holiday destination of choice for German teenagers and that busloads of them are shipped into the town every day. The hotel was 99% young Germans looking to party hard so we got very little sleep for the 2 nights we were there. Having said that, as soon as we complained, Senor Negre went out of his way to find us other adults-only accommodation for the rest of our booked nights at an affiliated hotel in a nearby town at no extra cost, even though it was a higher star hotel. If you are aware of the clientele of the town and all the hotels, Hotel Esplai is a good place to stay, but be warned, if you're an older traveller, its probably not for you

    The staff were particularly helpful, especially Senor Negre who went out of his way to make our stay a good one and helped us out when things went pear-shaped. The facilities of the hotel and room were good and we would have stayed on if the other guests were closer to our age.

    Only problem was that a choir was also booked in. Completely swamped the breakfast area and did not leave when they had finished their meal thus the room was congested and all the tables were occupied for long periods of time.

    Good beach hotel (about a 5 minutes walk to a local beach), but about a 25 minutes drive into the center of San Sebastian (paid parking at a garage downtown). Staff managed to accommodate us with two adjacent rooms and replaced broken fridge in room promptly. This hotel had the BEST breakfast we've had during our entire 3 and a half weeks trip in Spain. Breakfast buffet included pastries, tortilla, meats, cheese, fruits, breads, hard boiled eggs and free use of an espresso coffee machine. Hotel also offers convenient parking (for extra charge).
