We were delighted with our choice as it is SO Spanish,,, run by a friendly Spanish family who go the extra distance to make you feel welcome. What a contrast with so many hotels these days that have been taken over by the large hotel chains. Here you get the feeling of genuine personal service.
We stayed for 3 days here on a half-board basis which included breakfast and lunch. The breakfast buffet comprised a very wide spread of choices, with beautifully fresh pastries and bread... and unlike in the hotel chains, fresh, chilled juice... and not disgusting sugary syrups masquerading as juice from a machine. Likewise, the scrambled eggs were tasty and hot unlike the almost inedible offering in most chain hotels.
The lunch was delicious and suitably filling, with table service and a different offering each day. The proprietress apologised to us upon arrival at the hotel that the food served for lunch is typically Spanish and not to the taste of what most Brits in Benidorm are typically known for in the culinary department. We assured her that there was absolutely no need to apologise because we love Spanish food and we were not disappointed. If you don't like Spanish food, we suggest that you don't book the lunch option.
The rooms are clean, bright and modern with good furniture and comfortable beds. The bathroom was very pleasant with a good, well functioning shower and plentiful hot water. There are plenty of sockets for electrical gadgets and the WIFI worked well throughout our stay.
The hotel is located in a narrow traffic-free street close to the little beach end of the Old Town. Access could be a problem for those with walking difficulty. We stayed on the 4th floor in room 404 which we liked very much because the 4th floor rooms have a pleasant terrace with views over the roof tops.
If you are looking for a genuine and rare SPANISH HOTEL experience in the Old Town of Benidorm in preference to the regular offering of Benidorm, then this is the hotel for you!
We would stay here again.
