This was our second trip to benidorm for a long break over the easter weekend. Last time myself and my Husband visited benidorm we stayed in the old town, in the Villa Venecia Boutique hotel, so it was somewhat different to the Melia Benidorm, however that was also reflected in the huge difference in the price between the two.
Hotel - The Melia is a good hotel, I would rate it as an average 4*. It is clean and has everything that you would need for a holiday of this type. The reception staff were friendly and helpful, and the communal areas were kept clean at all times. The pool area is quite nice.
The rooms are again clean and have all amenities that you would need for a stay of this nature, and the maid service was fine.
Food - We did not eat any food in the hotel so I cannot comment on this aspect.
Location - This was the biggest down fall about the hotel, but I suppose that all depends on what you want out of your trip. We are a yound couple in our early 20's that like to have a good time, yet we dislike the whole british pub thing that benidorm seems to have going on. We much prefer to go into the old town and do as the spanish do, with Tapas and Sangria ect.
I would say that this is hotel is ideal for a girls or lads holiday who want a bit of cheap sunshine and easy access to the tacky parts of benidorm.
If you are looking for something special / romantic I would suggest staying further out of this area and heading towards the old town of benidorm.
On the whole, this hotel served its purpose and was adequate for what we wanted; a cheap hotel in the sunshine, however I would probably not stay here again.
