Nestled in one of the Laurentians’ most beautiful locations, Estérel Resort is one-of-a-kind with its 200 spacious suites with fireplace and kitchenette, three restaurants and one of the most renowned wine cellars in Canada. You can choose between two ambiences. Hotel Evolution’s 95 contemporary, bright and modern suites will bring you closer to nature and Lake Dupuis, while Hotel Emotion, with its 105 warm and cozy lounge suites, is especially designed for romantic getaways. Located only one hour from Montreal and 20 minutes from Saint-Sauveur, Estérel is a popular destination for couples of all ages, a gathering place for anyone who wants to be immersed in a highly romantic setting surrounded by magnificent scenery. What’s more, its geographic location means there are a ton of outdoor activities at its doorstep. During the summer, you can explore the three neighbouring lakes by canoe, kayak or paddle board, and enjoy biking or hiking on the many kilometres of trails around the resort. In winter, the lakes and forests become a huge playground for ice skating, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing enthusiasts. The venue also serves as a popular convention centre, known for its experienced staff and over 12 conference and banquet rooms, some of which offer a breathtaking view of Lake Dupuis and the surrounding nature. Also, with its three restaurants, including the famed Bistro à Champlain whose wine collection exceeds 20,000 bottles—the largest in Quebec—the resort stacks up to Montréal’s finest dining establishments. Restaurant ROK, for its part, is a surf-and-turf lover’s delight with its volcanic stone cooking, while Chais58, which offers a delicious selection of dishes to share, features food and drink pairings prepared by the sommeliers. Finally, you can relax in the Lido Thermal’s facilities (spas, saunas, polar baths, steam sauna, beaches and summer bar), and find a complete range of spa services at the Amerispa Center provided by a team of professionals: massage therapy, beauty and body care. Book your next stay at Estérel Resort now and take advantage of one of our many packages in this exceptional destination in the Laurentians.

Great hotel and great staff. The natural surroundings is what you come for and it’s a relatively short drive from Montreal. They have excellent restaurants and don’t overlook the amazing food they serve at the pool house. Note however that the quality of the massages at the spa is hit or miss, which is disappointing for one of the most expensive spas un Quebec.

– During our visit, my family (2 Adults and 2 kids) used the thermal pools. – We were careful and followed all COVID-19 guidelines : mask, no more than 10 people in the people etc. We entered the pool and the amount of people were exactly 10 including us. – Other guests decided to enter the pool and the number rose to 14The security guard came after people were in the pool, and asked for people to leave. – Some guests left but the number remained over 10. – The security guard started to get aggressive and ask in a louder tone to leave. – My kids got nervous about the tone of voice and the repeated demand for "volunteers" to leave the pool. – In the end we decided to leave, under the security guards gaze, to save everyone from anymore embarrassment and awkwardness, even though I didn't have to. – My kids felt embarrassed, I felt ill treated, and felt awkward leaving amongst the guests. I felt I was being told off by the principal of the school. There is no reason any guest in any circumstance should be treated like that. In the end, this was quite the bad treatment, especially that you advertise that you are a fine establishment. As an added bonus, the murphy bed was broken and the fireplace was not working very well.

I understand the restrictions placed on hotels and businesses due to COVID. This made the check in experience long and difficult. I have no problem with this. The hotel seemed to be doing everything they could to expedite the check in. It still was +1 hour to get into a room. I have been to this hotel many times in the past (roughly 10 visits), but the staff and experience for the guests has gotten significantly worse. The hotel staff using the elevator while myself and family wait at the door with all of our luggage was in poor taste. When we finally made it to the floor, the hallway was blocked by the same staff member and another with giant carts. I asked nicely if they could move a little so we could pass, but was told to wait a couple minutes until they finished. The rooms have also deteriorated. Carpets are stained and furniture worn out. The light in the room is great during the day, but VERY dark at night. Few lights with very low light makes it difficult to see your nose in front of your face. There are more points to make, but I will leave this here. Far too expensive for what it is now. The luxury has worn off of this hotel. This used to be one of my favorite stays, but it looks like I will need to find another.

I have never written a negative review in my life, but I'm hoping to save someone the disappointment and money. I had stayed here two years ago and wow has this place gone downhill... A few notes to consider prior to booking: 1) Firstly, the check in process during covid times was a nightmare, took 35 minutes, with tons of people stuffed into a small space. many people not wearing masks as well. 2) the lack of cleanliness was atrocious. There were stains on the couch that looked terrifying if there would be a black light situation, the hallway carpets were disgusting beyond belief, dishes and garbage left in the hallways for an entire day, stains on the towels and bedding, little to no supplies including coffee (as promised in the room), towels, shower gel etc. The hallway legit looks like the Shining. 3) requested bathrobes and towels, took 2.5 hours and then had to call again to request them. took another 30 mins. 4) food is edible at best , and way over priced. 5) staff wasn't friendly or hospitable with the exception of one in house dining associate. 6) really pretty views, nice area/ location 7) they were vacuuming at 8 am new years day and tons of loud noises from above and in the hallways. sound proofing is non existent. I wanted truly to enjoy my stay as I had a few years ago, especially for $1000 for 2x nights over new year, and was just so disappointed sadly. I would really reconsider if you are planning to book, unfortunately

Welcome to Esterel... not? We went to Esterel, and despite calling and leaving messages three times on different days the week prior to our arrival to get a reservation (having read other travellers’ feedback), we never got a call back from the restaurants. “You cannot book our restaurants unless you are staying at the hotel”. Surely, this meant we would be ok. But no. After leaving a message in French, they finally called us back to to say they were booked, and that they HAD BEEN BOOKED for TWO WEEKS. Thanks for bothering to reply after the deadline to cancel the stay. The staff is super polite to your face, though. C’est vraiment super quand tu demandes à ta douce moitié de réserver le resto, pensant que le service sera de mise qu’importe la langue. On aurait pu annuler notre visite. Serait-ce ce qu’ils cherchent à éviter? Beware. Vous serez avertis.
