We have stayed at the Levante many times since it opened about 8 years ago, but this was the first time since it has been Thomson Gold. The rooms still exactly the same, large, spotlessly clean, maid cleaned every day. The food is more or less the same as it was, very good, plenty of choice, hot food was always hot and service is excellent. I do not know why some are moaning about the food. The only thing Thomson have changed with the food is that it was always full board in winter and now it is only half board, and they have increased prices now with it being Gold.
It used to be partly used by Spanish and ex pats before, there were not as many Spanish in this time, so maybe Thomson have more rooms than First Choice did.
As for the entertainment, we did not stay in, only went down once while we were there and it was not as good as going over the road and the prices for drinks were a lot more expensive. Also we are not into a lot of the games they play, so we felt like we were paying extra for things we did not do.
There is too much outside in Benidorm to stay in a night for the Gold entertainment, go across the road to the Rock and Roll Bar, four acts on each night, see Cabeytu brothers they are brilliant also Wammy from Great Harwood and Elvis look alike. Also go to see Peat Loaf in the other bar with Palm trees he is brilliant as well. In fact there are several bars over the road catering for everyone. If you want to walk a little further there are lots more bars with different acts on, and all the drinks prices are cheaper than the hotel.
Back to the Hotel, Thomson have changed the Dickins bar downstairs into the entertainment room, this used to be the British pub with TV's on. So if football or other sport things were on, people could go down and watch it on big screens.
Now sport was on in the Piano bar upstairs and some Guests were not happy as this was on when the Pianist was playing.
We were there from the 3rd to 10th October and the weather was very hot, so we sat by the pool more than normal and found not enough sunshades and some broken, but there were always plenty of sun beds.
We would return to this hotel though as we have always loved the place and we really enjoyed it. Just cannot understand why Thomson want a Gold in Benidorm, the Levante Club is too modern and there is too much going on around outside.
We have been to three other Gold Hotels and all have been in quieter resorts, where people will stay in a nights.
