“Gem in the middle of Benidorm”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

I visit Benidorm frequently and this had got to be the best hotel I have stayed at in Spain. The food is great and the outside bar area is a sun trap.

Stayed hear 25th FEB till 10th March Overall a good hotel rooms nice cleaned daily sheets changed every 3 days. Bar staff very good but one or two of them give you the rubbish drinks if they think you are not looking but mostly got what I asked for . The food was OK and was repeated quite often they had Duck on 4 times we were there they had curried and sweet and sour dishes on but were a bit bland and very salty but the bigest problem with it was it was cold mostly but as some one on the next table said to her freind there is allways the Microwave to warm it up .We have traveled for 30 years in many differnt places and it is the first time I have seen a Microwave in the dining room in any hotel if the food was warm enough why was it there .I never saw eny one testing the tempreture of the food as I have in many hotels .Over all a good hotel but let down by the food

Full week on eat and drink what you can. Food quality and choice at all meals was excellent. Night entertainment ok but near enough to outside bars not to spoil the week.

Stayed here for a 5 day break and thoroughly enjoyed it. The rooms were spotless as was the whole hotel. The food is of a good standard although a little more choice for main courses and the salads were very bland. The sweet choice is also limited to custard and jelly or baked apples all of which are fine but not my choice. The evening entertainment maybe more suited too more mature people but again depends what you like. We decided too venture out most evenings after a few drinks at the bar. Would i come back... yes for sure .

First time visit to Benidorm and pleasantly surprised. The Sandos is in a great location just on the edge of Old Town. Room 503 was fine with a view over the pool. The food was very good with a great choice. We especially liked the soups. The entertainment was very Spanish and at the weekends the influx of Spanish guests meant it could get very noisy, especially at meal times but overall was never a problem. Raquel the entertainments host was excellent and even took us on a guided tour of the Old Town which was a bonus. Tried the spa circuit and it was very enjoyable.

One slight negative - I inadvertently left a pair of shoes in the room and despite contacting the hotel by email and also getting a Spanish friend to actually ring the hotel direct to enquire if they had been found, I had no luck iand they were unable to reunite me with my shoes or even let me know if they had ever been located which was disappointing. Lesson learned - thoroughly check the room before you leave!

In addition Monarch were at their usual worst a 3 hour delay on return due to a problem with the aircraft but all in all we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and plan to return next year.

Room Tip: Room 503 was in the shade until late afternoon.

Booked for The Benidorm Fiesta 9/11/2011 - 16/11/2011. All inclusive. Generally a good hotel but with a few wrinkles. All inclusive was good. Pool was closed and this only became clear as we arrived, also the provision of picnic lunches had been stopped as from the 1/11 even though we had confirmation from Sandos Monaco they were still being provided. The rooms were fine and clean although on our last day I dropped a euro onto the floor which rolled under the bed - under there had not been cleaned. The showers have a problem in maintaining a constant temperature ,it goes cold without warning and scalding hot within seconds - take care. Location of hotel for the fiesta,the beach and the down town bars was fine. Evening entertainment was not the best but would do. I would use this hotel again. Going at Fiesta time is thoroughly recommended and the complete programme is available from the tourist office albeit 24 hours before the fiesta begins.

Room Tip: Would prefer rooms on a low floor as the lift has the potential to be a problem at peak times.

We stayed at the Sandos Monaco in November 2011. We were there in a group of 20 people as we were there for the fiesta. I have been to Benidorm for many years now and i have to say this is the best hotel i've stayed in so far. The hotel is situated in the middle of the old and new town. Just a short 5-10 minute walk to shops,bars and the square. The rooms are very clean with a small balcony. Bathroom with bath,shower,wc,sink and beadie. The towels were changed every day and sheets a couple of times but we only stayed 5 nights. The staff are very friendly and would do anything to help. We were all inclusive. At the hotel if u want smirnoff vodka, cider, wk, smirnoff ice etc u are asked to pay 10 euro extra per day of your stay but all u need to do is ask for it and u get it for free:) The food was excellent. You get everything, at breakfast there was everything from cereal,toast,fried bread etc and every kind of eggs from fried,scrambled,boiled etc. Basically full English breakfast and theres also fruit,yogurts,cakes oh and also champagne breakfast...just help yourself:) Lunch was ok and the dinner at night was also good. There was a different theme every night but if u didnt like it there was other choices such as pasta, chicken,beef,pork,salad,cheese,pate everything u can think off and loads of different puddings. Also wine to help yourself and soft drinks. The bar lounge was really nice with a pool table and they also had entertainment every night from karoke to quiz nights. There was also a bar upstair which was good to relax. The bar upstair had a bbq a few days a week which the chefs made piaella,ham etc. It looked really nice. The pool is also really nice(big enough) with a seperate one for kids. I would recomend this hotel to anybody as its far by best i've stayed in. Cant fault it one bit as everything was perfect.
