I have visited this hotel for four short breaks this winter. And four times previously. I have enjoyed all visits.It is quiet, immaculately clean,staff are friendly and efficient . A wide variety of
tasty food which is as good as large scale catering can produce.The dining room is roomy with a layout which encourages conversation and the chance to form friendships.
Most bedrooms are conservatively furnished in a very comfortable way. Carpets in all hotel areas, with soft furnishings absorb sound which contributes to the tranquil atmosphere.Unlike all other Benidorm hotels that I have called into.Some floors have been modernised.I have not seen them.
The building has 280 rooms in 17 storeys ,all sea facing at a distance of 150yards from the beach. Lifts seem sufficient ,but I can imagine delays when the hotel is totally full.All of my visits have been in winter so I have limited experience of the pool areas. Pools are small ,covered and warm.
The situation is quite good with the reservation that I would not want to be there in peak season as it is close to the noisy club and hooligan hotel areas.( This is conjecture on my part.) The area is flat with an easy walk to the promenade . There are plenty of available benches about along the road and on the prom.
There are frequent cheap bus services from outside the hotel.
Entertainment is provided in the hotel ,mainly nightly dancing to small groups plus a cabaret most nights. It will appeal mainly to older people.
Clientele while I have been there has been about 90% pensioners of whom 80% have been English.More Spanish at weekends.
Almost every one I spoke to had made many previous visits. That says a lot. Staff also seem to stay. Strangely, I met no one in the hotel from the south east of England.
i do not think the hotel would appeal to my grand children or great grand children.Too quiet and not enough suitable entertainment. Babies however seem to be very welcome.
