hing just returned from a week at this hotel I have mixed reviews....as does my hubby...
I shall start with the negative
food...terrible for a four star hotel......breakfast was almost the same every ay....the chef would make omelettes when he hadn't nicked off for a break.....fresh orange juice no where to be soon....but plenty of diluted juice available.......sliced melon and grapefruit available every morning....not once did this change.......there is a stand with oranges and bananas on.....again this didn't change and the fruit cocktail was out of a tin,
very very slow service to clean the tables.....yesterday we had our breakfast in the sun room part of the dining room which is lovely.....not one table was cleaned......show cooking......a joke.....kebabs...??? get real......more vegetarian food needed
no cups and saucers left on the table?? 4 star??
the beds were uncomfortable and covered in a plastic mattress protector......never I my le have I experienced this.....pillows terrible....
the sunbeds....so old and uncomfortable....no wonder no body moved u couldn't get out of the ruddy things......again not what u wud expect from a 4 star establishment......umbrellas were broken and poorly fitting.....the pool side did not open until 10 am!!!!...940 if u were lucky......because the handy man as busy........so handy I never saw him in the morning
cant comment on the entertainment as we never stayed in the hotel in the evening
our room was on the second floor facing the sea...noisy at night....but just close the door .
the positives......this hotel is in a prime location in the old town of Benidorm.....literally a 3 minute access tot he prom and beach.....2 minutes to supermarkets and bars and shops.....
the bus stops are outside the hotel....so location wise this is exceptional.....a reason why we picked the hotel
the staff were very friendly and helpful
the room was kept clean and the cleaner was amazing
the is a fridge in the room...no extra charge
kettle in the room ......no extra charge
at the time of our stay the hotel was having some adaptations......stair rails being attached?? for safety.......surely these shud have been there already
a spa is available...but could not book a massage as the girl was on holiday???
I feel with some changes yes this could live up to its 4 stars...but can only assume it got its 4 stars cos of its location......
