This is a belated review due to other commitments and computer problems.
We have visited Benidorm several times over the years and were looking for a quiet all inclusive hotel in a different area and chose this one after reading the good reviews on trip advisor and also getting a good deal with Locostholidays.com.
It soon became apparent on our arrival at the hotel that we had made the right choice. The reception staff were friendly, welcoming and Chemi was very efficient checking us in and taking our photos for our all inclusive cards. The room requests we made prior to our arrival via email had been considered and we were more than satisfied.
Our room (3203) had a double bed, pool view, a nice balcony, ample storage space, a fridge and a well equipped bathroom with a full sized bath as well as complimentary toiletries. We found the bath a little slippery but on requesting a rubber bathmat from reception this was provided in no time at all.
We also had a flat screen TV, a radio unit and an electronic safe (payable locally).
The room was kept very clean by the friendly housemaids with regular changes of bed linen and towels and their tip was well deserved at the end of the holiday.
Their was a big communal lounge, bar and entertainment area comfortably furnished - tables and chairs in the bar and large comfy settees and chairs in the lounge area. Again all areas of the hotel were kept spotless.
There was payable internet stations available in the lounge area.
There was a good assortment of local drinks available in the all inclusive package and these were given in good measures on production of all inclusive ID cards - 1 per drink.
The biggest asset of the bar (in friendliness not size haha) had to be Teri (Teresa) who was always efficient, welcoming and a great source of fun. In fact all the bar staff including Jaime and Adrian were helpful and friendly.
The entertainment was also held in this area. This was organised by Josua (Hosway), some homegrown such as quizzes etc and you haven't lived until you have played the HOYHOY card game!!! Outside entertainment was also brought in including a singing duo, guitar boy, extreme acrobats, comedy acrobats and Polynesian dance act. (Terry got complemented on his Haka performance). Also Josua organised some daytime activities for families and children.
As far as the restaurant goes we found there to be plenty of choice for us at all meals. The selection of soups was excellent, there was a very good salad bar and a good variety of fresh fruit. There was also show cooking and the choice of sweets was good including custard and ice cream. The house wine was excellent and was served by the bottle but if not all used could be saved for the following meal with your room number put on.
The staff were lovely in the restaurant from the Maitre d' Gines and his deputy Antonio as well as waitresses Anoa, Carmen, Anna, Elena and Isabel and they were all really friendly and helpful. Many thanks to Antonio for helping us improve our Spanish.
We found for the time of year there was plenty of space and enough sunbeds around the outdoor pool. Again this area was kept clean at all times. Although in March it was too cold to use this pool it was of a good size.
There was an indoor pool with a jacuzzi at the end located through the mini shop. You had to wear swimcaps which can be purchased at the shop. There are also 2 saunas - one in the male changing room and one in the female changing room. It would have been nice to have a communal one also. Beach towels can be obtained for a refundable 10 euro deposit from reception and you are given a ticket to get your towel from the mini shop and can be exchanged on a regular basis.
It is not too far to walk to the new town and the beach but for those who need it there is a regular bus service passing the hotel to all areas of Benidorm and outlying areas and it is very reasonably priced.
We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning soon.
