We have just arrived back from the Melia. We normally stay in The Deloix further up the hill, which is a great hotel but we thought we would give the Melia a try.
The Hotel is very beautiful, the reception area and all public area's are well looked after and very clean. The rooms are a good size, cleaned daily with bedding changed and towels when ever you want. The food was good, amazing salads and deserts, hot meals were always fresh and hot, sometimes the staff were a bit slow clearing the tables but it was very busy. We were half board as we like to venture out but we did notice that drinks and snacks are expensive in the Melia so if you have kids or plan to spend most of your time at the hotel i would suggest you go all inclusive.
We only stayed to watch the entertainment once so I couldn't really say if it was good or not, we tended to go into town or use the bars local, The Tropical on the other side of the road opposite the Lavante Hotel is a great bar, really goods acts every night and great bar staff, the resident DJ is Disco Dave, he's really good fun.
It is only a short walk down the hill to Levante beach, lovely clean beach with clear water, lots of café's and bars to stop at along the beach, walk into the Old Town, its so nice with lots of shops and bars.
My main negative with the Melia has to be the Pool area, it is the most beautiful pool area with a lagoon shaped pool, palm trees and lots of sun loungers BUT ONLY IF YOU CAN GET ONE !!! the staff need to stop people putting towels out on the sunbeds then not using them for hours, I seen people sneaking out in the early morning and some even leaving their towel out all night!! I am not a sun bather but do like to go down in the afternoon with my book and lay in the shade, nearly impossible as nearly all the sun beds have towels on them but no people, they wonder off for lunch or whatever, very annoying, I think the Melia staff should put a stop to this to make it fair for everyone.
All in all another great holiday in Benidorm, will be back in October and will be happy to stay at the Melia again or the Deloix.
