Reviewed 12 August 2010

After arriving on the 24th July we were allocated a room on the 16th floor which when we got to the room had amazing views. The rooms were plenty big enough for 2 and had a plazma t.v with a variety of english channels. The rooms were deadly silent all through the night. The selection on breakfast was probably the best we have ever come across and we travel 3 times a year. The evening meals were even better, choices of roast joints, fish and salads every night. They are strict on trousers for gents at evening meal which we wern't told about therefore had to buy some but only paid 6euro and for an hour a night was worth it. We didn't try the entertainment in the hotel as the location of the hotel is within 3minutes walk of all the main cabaret bars where the entertainment is very good. The pool area is not he biggest but whatever time of day you went there you could always get at least 2 beds together. I would reccomend this hotel to anyone as it cannot be faulted.

This hotel is marked down in various brochures as being a 4 * hotel. In our opinion this is some what far fetched and we rate it at between a 2* and 3* hotel. Main drawbacks are very dated furniture, mundane repeditive night time shows aimed at the blue rinse brigade (55 and above) severe lack of sunbeds for number of people in hotel. At the time of our stay the hotel had over 500 guests but on 110 sunbeds and the swimming pool for both adults and children are the smallest we have ever seen. Come 9am in the morning the English were on starters orders, at 9.01am the poured out to the sunbed in droves to reserve the sun beds only for them to walk away from them, in some cases for hours at a time. The english are the worst people for reserving sunbeds of that I have know doubt. The adult pool is crowded when more than 6 people are using the pool at the same time. Its just terrible. The hotel is situated on one of Benidorms main street and the noise at night will match the crowd at a football stadium.

There are some good points, these include, friendly staff, nice resturant and good food.

Thanks to everyone who reviewed this hotel before i went which is why i chose it and they were spot on very clean and welcoming food is superb best english breakfast ive had abroad and evening meals were excellent superb location for nightlife and as i knew hotel entertainment was low key was not dissapointed there are so many shows and cabaret acts on your doorstep its hard to choose what to see the drinks prices in the hotel are very reasonable and the staff always more than happy to help i asked for a high floor and got the 15th with great views of the sea and beach so again was happy rooms are adequate and always got a sun bed the pool is small but hey the beach is a 2 min walk away all in all a great stay would recommend this hotel for a nice quiet break and if you want loud music its just round the corner but you cant hear it from your room but for great food polite staff clean rooms and nice location try the don pancho

arrived at hotel at 11am and were offered rooms on 1st floor as our allocat.ed rooms on 8th floor were not ready but if we were not happy with them we could be moved an hour later.The room was fine very clean good fridge and plenty of wardrobe and drawer space and no need to worry about lifts.All staff from reception,bar, restaurant and maids very helpful and friendly nothing too much trouble.Food in restaurant for breakfast and dinner excellant in quality, quantity and variety with a decent bottle of wine for 7 euros.Pool terrace very clean with a good bar for snacks & drinks if you wanted them although we tended to go to the beach every day as it was just a 5 minute walk.Music in the ballroom every night seemed to be very popular but we usually went out in the evenings for a walk along the promanade or to the old town where there are plenty of bars to choose from.If we had a drink in the hotel it was in the lower bar where the service was excellant and prices very reasonable.Not a hotel for familys or couples in their 20's but for us it was more than expected .We have holidayed with the same friends or several years and travelled all over the world and this is the first time we have had no moans at all from the fussiest eater I know.His only complaint was that the food was so good he didn't know what to choose each day.Would definitely go again.

Just returned from a weeks holiday at the DON PANCHO in BENIDORM. This is an elegant hotel in agood location. Food is good rooms are comfortable & all face the sea, had room on top floor as requested with one of the best views in Benidorm. This hotel caters for mostly older travellers & the entertainment is geared for them, the drinks are very expensive. The pool & sun terrace is very small would be very difficult if hotel was full.

Myself and my partner went to Benidorm in February this year to celebrate my partner's 50th birthday. We were thoroughly delighted with our stay at Hotel Don Pancho. We stayed at this hotel on a half board basis and the breakfast and evening meal were varied and always delicious.

The staff were always very polite and helpful.

Our room was very clean and towels were changed daily.

Only one problem we found the swimming pool was a little small but it is definitely worth staying here.

This hotel is also convenient for the fantastic nightlife of Benidorm and for the beach.
