“BETTER THAN EXPECTED”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014

Just got back (16/01/14) from a week at these sister hotels,after reading reviews was a little doubtfull but was pleasantly suprised. the check in was quick and when i asked for low floors because i didnt like lifts they put me on the second floor great,the hotel was very very clean.All the staff were very helpful and even at the bar when there were a lot of Spaniards everyone was served in turn. there was entertainment every night usually a singer/organist or singer guiter in our hotel but you could go to the sister hotel (40yds) and there might be a magis show or snake man or line dancing.now the food was all good and suited most people, ive never had pigs feet at an all inclusive before or beef liver or spring rolls so it was "different" shall we say.there was one small hen party of five girls who after going out early came back and said the hotel entertainment was better. i would return to this hotel but not with kids, having said that the guy doing the animation did ask us every day to fo the normal archery darts etcand the pool was very clean and looked great. distance to beach and old town about 300yds ideal location. hope this helps.

Spent Christmas 2013 at this hotel. Taxi from Alicante airport should cost no more than 70 Euros for four passengers - which is approximately one hour's drive away - depending on the mentality of your taxi driver. Some, I can imagine, will do it in half that time!

The hotel is clean and its staff are polite and obliging. A slight incline from street level to its main entrance could cause problems to some of Benidorm's 'mature' winter clientele - but most seem to navigate this by investing in rocket propelled Motobility Scooters (30 Euros for 3 days if you're interested in joining in the fun). The food was varied and typical of a 3 star Spanish Hotel. No complaints about the variety or the way in which it was prepared or presented and contrary to what's been said I think they do a good English breakfast. The all-inclusive drinks are more than palatable and generous in their measure - no matter who serves you.

Benidorm's old town is about 10-15 minute walk with several sea-front Tapas bars on route - my particular favourite was 'Danny's Bar' where you can indulge a day time passion for Karaoke or sit and watch the world go by - on roller blades, skateboards, motobility scooters and just about anything else with wheels.

There was a mixed bag of friendly, mature nationalities at the hotel which could have given an outsider the impression that the hotel was too quiet - I rarely spent evenings at the hotel but I never heard anyone complain in any of the multiple languages that were being spoken. A real friendly mix of europeans. Even our German friends were laughing.

Room Tip: First floor rooms don't get as much winter sun.

Don't listen to the negative reviews. Stayed here on a short all inclusive break between Xmas & New Year. Staff polite & helpful & work very hard, especially in the restaurant. Food is very good, breakfast full cooked choice, cereals, bread, continental. Lunch/Dinner, soup, choice of meats, pizza, paella & vegetarian and nice to see a selection of potatoes rather than just chips! Snacks available at the bar. Hotel out of town, very clean, nice stroll 15 minutes along seafront. Taxi to the entertainment in town 8-10Euro. Entertainment in hotel geared for Spanish, Ballroom & Line Dancing. Not our taste, but they enjoyed it! Higher floor, better views, we were on 14th and had stunning views. All local bars close in the evenings at this time of year. Only downside, walls very thin & could hear everything from adjoining rooms. Would definately go back to this hotel.

Room Tip: Higher floor for the better views

Wasn't sure what the hotel would be like with all the different reviews but I have to say very relaxing. Staff very polite, rooms a little small but it's so nice to see the sea straight ahead. We only stayed for breakfast which was adequate coffee very good, plenty of bread and hot food, cereals with dried fruit and plenty of cakes. The wi fi was 3.75 per day but high speed so was brilliant in the room. You can also get sky news and true movies on the television. Beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was fine, large bath and hairdryer. Had no problem with the lifts didn't have to wait at all. There was plenty of parking outside. We didn't experience any noise all in all a very nice holiday. Very pleasant walking along the sea front to the old town.

Room Tip: Better views high up.

Myself and my husband stayed here for a short break , it was brilliant it was mostly spanish people at this hotel but made no odds we had a ball . Food , service , cleaners , reception were all brilliant we couldn't find fault . The view is amazing we were on the 10th floor . We are going to look at returning and we have both agreed we would only return to benidorm if we were staying in this hotel so please don't listen to bad reveiws re food , service ect . Entertainment is mostly spanish but I have to admit as a couple aged between 38 and 42 my sides were sore with laughing . Have to say go walk along Danny's bar turn left at bottom of road and walk along you will be made very welcome . Carolann and Colin from bonny Scotland
