“Geordies713 review is 'spot on'”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

We have similarly just returned from our first visit to Benidorm staying at this hotel. We would reiterate the comments made by the review referred to in the title, the dining experience was like that of a school canteen albeit a canteen serving a very good variety of quality food. The individual referred to in Geordies713 review even had the audacity to reprimand my wife for putting her dinner plate on an adjacent table which was done as she thought for ease of collection!

Rooms
We had a top floor room with superb views and understand that all the rooms are of the same size accommodating two queen size beds and having a very good sized bathroom. Bearing in mind the four star rating a couple of minor criticisms, there are no facial tissues in the room and the coffee/tea making facility includes a kettle which does not have a separate base so that the electrical lead has to be removed from the power point to switch it off whilst boiling. After using it once we decided it was a potential accident waiting to happen.

Spa facility
We cannot comment as although we had two visits included in our room rate we never found time to ue it!

Select room upgrade
Worthwhile if you would prefer to enjoy your branded tipple. The select cub lounge stocked a very good selection of known wines, beers and spirits and always had a selection of sandwiches and cakes and nibbles available. It also included an internet access point and a few red top newspapers to read. This option also provided bath robes, slippers and a bed turn down service (albeit intermittent).

Overall the experience was very positive and we would return to this hotel. When speaking to guests staying at other nearby four star hotels the dining room experience is not uncommon but the room standard does seem to vary widely.

Room Tip: Higher floors are obviously quieter although using the balcony on the 16th floor was nerve racking!

This is my second review of this Hotel as I think it's always a good thing to see how they progress over time.

We can honestly say it is still the same giving excellent service, rooms cleaned every day, food very good with plenty of different items, breakfast especially offering good choices.

We did hear of one or two people having slight upset stomachs but we honestly didn't see or have any problems with this (the hotel does have facilities for cleaning hands before entering the restaurant but we did see a lot of people walking in without using it).

The bar staff at this hotel never fail to please, they have this Spanish tongue in cheek way which is similar, I think to us English (I hope they don't mind me saying this) but we did enjoy this lovely attitude.

All in all a great holiday and we shall return, not only because of this Hotel but because Benidorm never fails to please.

The old town and the tapas bars is a must.

All the best

Room Tip: A lot of people give indications of best sun light but we have been on both sides and it really depe...

I have just come back from a week at this hotel and cannot fault it in anyway. The rooms are lovely modern and clean, the food is suitable for everyone and has something different every night. We were not made aware of the snack bar but this is available during the day you have to ask the staff behind the pool bar what is on that day. The staff were all superb and helpful, from the reception to the bar, housekeeping and the restaurant staff.

We used the spa on a couple of occasions and is great to use if the weather is not at it's best. The poolside area is clean and sunbeds are easy to get anytime of the day.
There were groups here but they were there just to enjoy the holiday as much as the next person and they were not noisy or disruptive in any way, if anything they added a bit of youth to the place. We were a younger couple and the age range is averaging 50 plus so I do not recommend it for younger people looking for a wild hotel. In all the Sandos Monaco is a great hotel and I will return again if I ever go back to Benidorm.

Room Tip: Ask for a odd number room.

This hotel is adults only, it is situated in a good area in Benidorm between the old and new town
Food is good but choice for vegetarians was limited
Entertainment at night was good a variety of different shows
Cocktails was excellent
Rooms and balconys are spacious with big bathrooms
No need to go down very early for a sunbed as there is plenty for everybody
I would definetely go back to this hotel

Room Tip: I was room 812 and had a nice sea view
