Is is our second visit there. The place is very nice; well centered, clean, staff are very friendly. The pool is very clean. Food was delicious..there were so many varieties for dinner. Awesome!! Would strongly recommend someone to go there.

We stayed there for a few days and absolutely loved it. Escales Vacances is very well situated, you can go around in Port Mathurin easily. The food is really good. And the staff are helpful - they even arranged for a transport for us to visit the island etc...

this is a cheap option and good alternative to more expensive resorts on the island; easily accessible and near to Port Mathurin; however, the service and quality of the premises are average, as well as the food and beverages.

Stayed at this hotel for a couple of days. Location is just perfect and easy to go around.

The rooms though a bit tacky old is clean and functional. The reception staff is courteous ( thanks Vanessa for make our stay so easy).

The areas of improvement for an old hotel maybe many but what needs fixing is the kitchen and the meal service. Some of the restaurant staff are really helpful but they are let down by the pour quality of the kitchen staff. Breakfast took ages to be served. Dinner was approximate.

Pool not cleaned regularly

Escale Vacances is well located in Port Mathurin, far enough from the centre that it's very quiet, but only a 10minute walk to the bus terminus, which makes travelling super easy! The accommodation was simple and clean, breakfast was somewhat limited (bread + butter/jam/cheese + banana + scrambled eggs/omelette + tea/coffee/juice) but the dinners were varied and very tasty. The pool is a decent size, great to do laps in (though it doesn't get a lot of afternoon sun)! The staff is polite and friendly, and did very well to cope with a group of 32!!!
I would definitely recommend it for anyone travelling on a budget!

Room Tip: The 2nd floor rooms seem to be quieter (less movement in the corridor), and they all look onto the pool rather than the road.
