The hotel and rooms were very clean and the staff very friendly, the problem was the smokers who have everywhere outside including the outdoor dining area. The non smoking space is very small next to the snack bar, pool tables and noisy machines.
Three televisions had sport from 8 am until 12 midnight. The bar area is also busy so hardly a relaxing space at all. There is nowhere to go if you want a quiet cup of coffee or a drink other than the balcony and even then they smoke on the balcony. I was offered an ashtray when I said no I was told this is a smokers hotel it seemed they could smoke where they wanted to with no body being told off.
Avoid at all costs if you do not smoke, rooms have no walk in showers about time they did!

Hotel tip: Pool view
The food served in the hotel was was good quality with a fair amount of choice. I personally found the snack bar very nice with plenty of choice.
The hotel is set in a great location close to local shops and beaches.
The hotel staff in general were very friendly and helpful with exception to two, who were somewhat arrogant and rude.
The entertainment was quite good and was presented bilingually most of the time. The childrens entertainment was not for very long but was thoroughly enjoyed by the children.
I particularly found the hotels reps and activity staff very friendly and helpful, they were very happy to help and i thoroughly enjoyed their company.
I would DEFINITELY visit again!
I've never had a bad meal or any sickness bug etc. at Estival Park, it's a big place and the gardens are great! With no litter anywhere.
The thing with hotel staff is that they never come across as being your friend. After all they are there as your servant and not to be your best mate for the week; you are a stranger to them. The kids entertainment team are normally good.
I don't relate to those saying they needed to buy their own toilet rolls and moaning about Germans and French or too many Spanish people is crazy. In truth it is an international hotel, personally when I'm away I wish to avoid the English as much as possible as they tend to be the rudest most arrogant tourist there. If you want to meet other Brits, go to Blackpool. If you can string a few words together in Spanish you might find the hotel staff respond to you better.
I would say go! Especially if you like all inclusive a la cartes and it's the ideal hotel if you use a wheelchair, not many steps anywhere.
The food was well cooked and plenty to choose from even for little ones (chicken nuggets,fish fingers turkey dippers and like)the snack bar which was open for 12 hours a day had sausages,hot dogs,chips, pork, fish, burgers, bacon, salad and lots more crisps and peanuts was the favourite in the evening with your drinks.
The pools were lovely, Estival 3 seemed favourite for familys, Estival 2 had a shallow pool for the children and a deep one which was about 2m
The entertainment was good with 3 hotels you had a choice of 3 different acts a night, mini disco on most nights just in Estival 1
Day time entertainment was normal stuff.

The room was absolutely crawling in ants, the food was dreadful nothing but seafood and dried salad which had seen better days.
The entertainment was pretty much non existant, there was a mini disco each night for an hour which was aimed at ages 6 and under, not a thing for older kids.
The odd time they put on entertainment for the adults (3 times in our 10 night stay) it was aimed at the spanish guests rather than the british ones.
Total waste of money couldnt wait to get home

The hotel and rooms were cleaned every day.
Our only real complaints were that the "hot" food was mainly cold and the meat cooked was very chewy .So we filled up on deserts and bread rolls.
Also the entertainment was absolute garbage and was mostly for spanish people.
We only saw 2 acts which we liked which were Johnny Romeraro (Tom ones tribute) and Karoke night.
If you stayed outside longer than 11.45pm you were told they were closing the area and staff cleared all tables and chairs and lights were put out.
Can't fault the cleaning staff - they were excellent.

It was also very small with 3 beds all in a row which left little space within the room, which we wanted to relax in once the kids were in bed asleep.
A quick call to reception to ask about an upgrade to a duplex room, turned up trumps and within 20 mins we had the key to a duplex room on the ground floor above the entertainment room. We were told that music would be loud and go on till 2330.
The upgrade we had already thought of doing whilst booking and cost another
