We have just returned from a week at this hotel based on fully inclusive. As many have said before, the hotel could not be better situated; for the beach the old town, a quiet walk, bars and restaurants. The hotel is clean, rooms well appointed, now that the weather is warm there is plenty of outside seating. The roof terrace is an amazing chill out zone. The bar staff work non stop and give what ever you request, cocktails, sprits, bottles of wine etc.
My only down side is the restaurant, the food is very good for buffet service, there is plenty of choice and the hot food is always hot, most of the staff make an effort to smile all the time, even though they work under pressure. I just could not stand the canteen style of clearing plates, cutlery and glasses onto plastic trollies next to your table, clatter bang non stop. I have read previous reviews who get the response "we use internal and external audits and constantly monitor our systems". If this is the case why hasn't it been corrected. Clear onto trollies but place them in the corners out of the way, and please do not bang the plates and throw the cutlery into the plastic boxes.
Otherwise they would have deserved a top score.

Just got back from benidorm .first time that we have been there.
The villa del mar turned out to be an excellent choice.
Staff very friendly and all working hard to make our stay
A memorable one.
Had one day when the restaurant was struggling with plates due to dishwasher breaking down but staff worked tirelessly to make sure we did not have to wait long for clean dishes.
Restaurant had two sittings per meal times as not enough room to accommodate all in one sitting, but this didn't cause us any problems, in fact the hotel is part of a chain of hotels and as you are allowed to use any of them we chose to eat at two of them, which saved us the trouble of having to go back for meals if we were out in the new town.
My wife and I have been on holiday to different locations every year for the last eight years and found the vill del mar to be as good as any we have stayed at,
I would recommend this hotel to anyone. You won't be disappointed.

Went purely based on reviews which turned out to be a perfect choice.There was four of us,from the minute we got there the staff were a credit to the hotel nothing was to much trouble. The postion of this hotel was perfect (old town) and on arrival we were informed we had the use of all the other hotels in the group which were scattered all over Benidorm you could eat and drink in them which we did,the food and drink were excellent also we had a sea view room on the 5th floor which was great.This hotel has had a refurbishment done and its been done to a very high standard all in all a great place to holiday

Room Tip: sea view and a high floor room a must

My daughter and i have just returned from our weeks long holiday to this brill hotel, we did have a hiccup on arrival as we were given a pool view room and had booked a sea view. I couldnt find my holiday booking form to prove this so didn't bother mentioning it, i did mention this to a member of staff the day before we came home and the duty manager Jose Barreras came to talk to me about it. What a lovely man, very kind and said that if i had mentioned this i would have been moved straight away even though i couldnt find the documents. Jose instead issued me with an Amigoes card which will give me 5% off our next visit , which will be very soon. The rest of the hotel was great, food, drink and cleanliness was great and the staff are the best ever. There were a couple of Hen and Stag parties but this didnt bother us. Really look forward to returning.

Room Tip: Always book sea view as therse rooms are must better.

After reading previous reviews of this hotel I was slightly worried about staying there, there was no need to worry. My Sister and I decided to stay here for the weekend and really had a great time, the hotel was just lovely, very clean, the room was quite contemporary and a decent size, although the bathroom was on the small side, the food was ok, not the biggest restaurant in the world but we still enjoyed it. We spent our time on the roof terrace and this made our holiday, we became friends with a small group of Scottish ladies (no, not a hen party), they were absolutely great fun and really made our time at this hotel brilliant. There were a couple of old people who were looking down their nose at this group but the rest of the guests loved these girls and so did we. I would recommend visiting this hotel, I believe they don't take hen/stag dos, therefore, don't waste your time if you are a big group. The hotel staff were brilliant.

Room Tip: The old town of Benidorm is beautiful with amazing shops whereas the new town shops are just tat. A taxi into all the bars in the new town was roughly 10euros
