JS Es Corso3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Booked 4 days before arrival. We were upgraded to sea view room because requested when booking. Very friendly staff. Lovely beaches nearby reached on foot and by rental car. We selected this hotel because it was 'no smoking' but all our neighbours smoked on their balconies so we were overwhelmed by smoke and full ashtrays stinking on neighbours' balcony tables. Also the charge for wifi was very high - we thought it would be free from online details.
We arrived at the hotel at 2.30 am. There was six of us in our group staying for the weekend and we were all tired and hungry. The man behind reception didn't speak very good English but understood we needed something to eat so showed us through to the dining room where we were able to get some food and drink. We then made our way up to the apartment which only had beds for five people so we made do and one of us slept on the 'sofa'. The following morning we went down for breakfast to find leaks in the roof of the dining room so needless to say we weren't that impressed although the food was ok. We spoke to the English lady who was now on reception and was told they had rooms that had six beds but we could have a mattress to put on the @sofa which we accepted. There was also no kettle in the apartment although we were all inclusive, we were given a kettle to use free of charge (it's normally 8 euros for a week. The room was very dated. The toilet moved when you sat on it, the kitchen tap was loose, the shower flooded the bathroom but we all fell in love with the place. The apartment was clean and comfortable. We had three balconies (one on each of the rooms). We ended up loving the place despite these little niggles. The food was lovely and fresh,it wasn't piled high so it was replenished frequently. The staff were the best of all the hotels I've stayed in. They couldn't do enough for you, they were also ready to join in the laughter and jokes with us. We have all decided we would stay there again in a heartbeat although it could do with a makeover.
Loved this hotel, very friendly staff. Couldn't rate this highly enough. Anyone thinking about booking to go here should take no notice of the negative comments. Couldn't fault this hotel, if was everything we wanted and more!!!
Rooms were a bit dated but very clean and well looked after. We were all inclusive and found the food great and varied. Cocktails included and again a good variety of spirits. Pool was great for adults and kids as were the other activities round the pool. The staff really make this hotel great. So very friendly and helpful, absolutely faultless and always busy making your stay lovely. Kids entertainment is quite basic but there's so much to do there, what they do just breaks up the day. Far better than their 3 Stat rating!
I am just back after having a lovely holiday in Porto Colom with my sister, I was a bit nervous about apartments after reading a few bad reviews but we were very happy with everything. We stayed on fifth floor and had a great side view of the beautiful port, the room was spotlessly clean even though they were a bit dated we couldn't fault them, they had everything we needed. The location of apartments is perfect right in the centre of resort, less than 10 minutes walk to fantastic beach and only minutes from lovely restaurants. The staff at Es Corso are fantastic, very friendly people at reception, dining room, and cleaners, all make you feel very welcome. We just stayed bed and breakfast but we found the breakfast had a great choice of hot and cold food, we enjoyed it every morning. We would definitely return here again. ,
Had a lovely time in Porto Colom, travelled with wife and two girls (aged 5 and 9) during August. It really is a beautiful (if quiet) place and I would consider going back - but that was in spite of JS ES Corso apartments, which were adequate at best. The best things about that JS ES Corso are the staff, who are very helpful, and the pool area, which is very spacious (although if you have young kids, it's worth sitting a bit further away from the pool area as some of the music that's played contains 'adult' language). The apartment we stayed in was spacious, and had air conditioning included (which leaked terribly) but was quite run down. None the less, it had everything we needed, and the beds were comfortable. Without question, the worst part was the food; which left a lot to be desired. It was mostly cold, didn't look like it was cooked properly (be it breakfast, lunch or dinner). The wasn't a lot to choose from, and if you're a vegetarian, unless you like salad, you're going to struggle (indeed, the 'vegetarian' option on fish day was seafood salad). My kids loved the mini-disco, but it's literally the same half a dozen songs, with no variety. Other than that, the entertainment was pretty non-existent (there was one singer that was truly dreadful!), although they did have a pool party while we were there, which was great fun. There's also a lot of walking between the hotel and the pool, or the apartments and the restaurant, so it's not ideal for people who have difficulty walking. Drinks are plentiful (the lager is Estrella). Others have mentioned the tiles in the pool - we noticed the same thing, but really only affects the baby pool - the larger pool is fine. If you're a fan of sport, there's a British bar just a short walk away which showed Premier League football - and a few restaurants, if like us, you decide you can't tolerate the food anymore. My over-riding thoughts on leaving Corso is how much better it could be, with some investment, but I wouldn't consider returning there.
We have recently came back from this hotel. We had a fab holiday but that was because we had great company and so made the most of it! The rooms were ok and cleaned every 2 days to a high standard. I didn't like the food as there wasn't much to choose from, however my daughter and partner loved it as they aren't as fussy as me! The entertainment was typical all inclusive but it did finish very early!! Mini disco started at 8:30 (my daughter loved that) but then some nights that was it, entertainment over!! When it did carry on it finished at 10:30 at the latest!! The pool was the best thing about this hotel but with a pram it wasn't the easiest to get to as with 2 children we couldn't get it up all the stairs (About 20) so we had to access it through a side gate across the road! The staff were friendly and even at the height of season we always got a sunbed so there was no problem there. I definitely wouldn't return to this hotel and wouldn't recommend it if you have a pram but for everyone else it is an ok hotel! Not much going on nearby though and the nearest shop was a bit of a trek so it wasn't for us but for what we paid we did have a good Holiday! 😊
Hotel room was quite basic but all we needed, it was on the 5th floor so we used the lift a lot! Reception, bar and dining room were very nice and the staff were all very friendly. Food was aplenty all fresh and hot and varied from day to day, although always having pizza and chips for the people that don't eat foreign food. Entertainment was great for the kids around the pool and after dinner, and singers, dancers etc for adults. The pool was lovely with plenty of sunloungers although a lot of people still put towels on them in the best places, even though they didn't use them til late afternoon. Snacks outside of dining room opening weren't great but there was always something if you were hungry.
We went here for 1 week at the end of August. We read on her about the long drawn out transfer from the airport and as we landed at 10pm, we decided to pay for a taxi as the air port said the transfer would take between 1 and 3 hours! The taxi took about 50 mins and coat 80 euros. Well worth it after a long day traveling. The hotel is very clean and very friendly, however the rooms are really dated and the bathroom was really not very nice. There was a constant smell and the bath had obviously been painted and was pealing off, leaving it looking a real mess. We found the beds were unable comfortable too. However others didn't find this a problem. The pool is great! There were always plenty of sunbeds available and we found the top end of the pool a lot quieter than the bottom. The only problem for us at this time of year was the wasps and hornets, as a few children got stung, but this can't be helped. We thought this hotel had entertainment during the day, although we didn't see any. Apart from one day when a pleasant girl gave us a soduko to do by the pool! That was it. We expected a bit more to be honest. The food was typical for a 3 star. Always something to eat but it wasn't great. Sometimes we lived on chips. Pancakes were good for breakfast and we never had the queue. It was lovely to sit outside for our meals too. We were half board and made use of the drinks at dinner time in the resturant, not realising that they were only included if you were all inclusive. However It doesn't say anywhere and it wasn't untill we got home and read over some reviews that we realised this. Oops! The area itself was lovely and quiet and somewhere I'd definitely return to. All in all, it was a good holiday. We got what we paid for and were overall satisfied. With just a few tweeks to the rooms needed.
I always say after going on holiday that I will write a review if I have found a hotel really positive, however,have never found the time to do it. Although I really feel that this time a review is definitely needed as some of the previous reviews really seem very harsh. I really feel that some of the negative comments are people being REALLY picky. We have stayed, as a family, in all sorts of locations and hotels of all stars. This was a fantastic holiday. Yes the hotel isn't as modern as others, but it was really really clean. Rooms were cleaned every other day, however, it was an in depth clean, moving beds etc. We always saw cleaners cleaning, whether it be rooms, the restaurant area, or even mopping the tunnel floors leading to the swimming pool. Food was brilliant. We travelled with two young children aged 5 and 7, and granny, and everyone really enjoyed the food at all mealtimes. My children are the most fussiest of eaters, however, always found a variety of food to eat. There was plenty of variety for all ages. Yes there were ques to get food at times, however, they were by no means long or did you have to wait long either. The pool is brilliant!!! My eldest can swim, however, my youngest and granny aren't great fans of water, but with the shallow ends both ends, we all spent lots of time in the water. It was perfect for everyone, plus you didn't have the usual sunbeds gone by 8am, there were always sunbeds to get at any point of the day. Staff at the hotel were so friendly. From the cleaners to Paula and Ivan at reception and all their helpfullness, to Julia and Manuel. They always had a smile and time to say hello, especially to speak with the children. Yes there were some broken tiles in the pool. One day from the bottom of the pool, my children picked them up. They took them to the pool bar and the next morning the pool was emptied and the tiles fixed. You can't ask better than that for maintenance! The play area next to the pool was great. I have read some reviews that it was dirty, it certainly wasn't. I have read lots of reviews being negative of the entertainment. I can honestly say that we all thought the entertainment was fantastic. There was a variety and every entertainer we saw really put their all in to it to make it a great show and to entertain. Yes the mini disco is repetitive, but thats what children enojy, whats the point in learning a song one night, for it to be different the next? My children loved the mini disco and being able to join in with all of the actions, especially the pool disco. Beds were really comfortable, this includes the sofa beds. My husband has had numerous operations on his back and found them comfortable to sleep on, never having woken from being uncomfortable. As for food at lunchtime at the poolside, yes it was the same everyday, but it served it's purpose. We all enjoyed it. I think people forget that there is lunch served everyday at the hotel restaurant also. When we were there we got talking to a family who said it was their 9th visit to this hotel, and that they would definitely return again next year. I think this says it all. Yes it is a quiet area, however, there are beautiful walks around the harbour and a beautiful walk to a beautiful beach. Yes the square is quieter than it has been, but a holiday is what you make it! Would we return again, yes, without a doubt. In fact, we always holiday in Alcudia in May at a hotel we have found, however, due to a really brilliant experience at this hotel, part of the js group, we are now looking at going to another js hotel in Alcudia and will definitely return to this hotel for our holiday next August. Thank you for a fantastic holiday.
