Just got back yesterday from stay at Hotel Don Pancho, we are so glad we gave this hotel a try as we will definitely be boomeranging back there again, again and again.
Very clean, rooms comfortable, food great and lots of choice, no noise at night from outside (3rd floor room), staff especially reception very helpful as we had a few niggles at first but they soon got sorted to our satisfaction. Evening entertainment caters for both UK guests and the Spanish guests who also enjoy this hotel. Able to dress up of a night and have a good dance to live music. Don't have to fight for a sun lounger as always extra available, nice pools 1 undercover and heated. The only thing I missed at the hotel and would really have appreciated the use of would be tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms.
Trip worth a visit is the charming little town of Altea, pick up the local bus across the road from Don Pancho (1.50E single trip 40 minutes at most) No 10 to Altea, lovely walk along Spanish cobbled narrow streets, but some streets have lots of steps up to the church at top of hill, views fantastic and worth the walk/climb, in shade enjoyed coffee and an ice cream to die for at ice cream cafe found around corner from church. A lovely promenade walk along Altea front, lined with wine bars and restaurants, market day Tuesdays. One place in Benidorm also worth a mention and a visit to is the Pinocchio's bar, a little oasis, as you will find it next to the madness of the Tikki Beach Bar. Pinocchio's is a dutch bar run by Susskia and William, a lovely quiet friendly bar that really welcomes UK visitors (spotless toilets)and the food is lovely, we go there for a glass or 2 of chilled wine in the afternoons while admiring the view across the bay to the Lion of Benidorm, if you do visit say an hello from Jennyjan & Mike to Edd who is one of the waiters that will look after you along with the others who are if I remember -Robin, Dennis, Lenka, Tanya, and in the kitchen are Daan & Yohann.
