“Clean, friendly, great location.”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

The good: spotlessly clean, the cleaning staff do an excellent job - friendly & helpful reception staff - ideal location, right on the doorstep of the old town & 30 metres from the beach & the sea.

The bad: no fridge in the room, come on guys, it's hot & we all need our drinks chilled in 30 degree heat - having to pay for the safe & the tv remote. I guess the bad is why this hotel is only 3 star.

Overall, a very good hotel, ideally located, with a couple of minor gripes. I would definitely stay at the Montemar again.

counting down the days until the 25th Oct. Coming back because last year was so exceptional and one of my best ever holidays in Benidorm.

We enjoyed it so much that we have recommended it to friends who are joining us. Look forward to seeing you all there.

my grandaughter and i stayed at this hotel for one week in june.The hotel is in a very good locaction it faces the beach so the rooms at the front must have a nice view unfortunatly we had a room at the back of the hotel.I cant blame the hotel for this as i didnt pay for a sea view. their was a tiny balcony about just over a foot wide facing some appartments the room itself was clean with a nice bathroom and air con but was a bit dark due to it being at the back.I asked if i could pay for a sea view but the hotel was full so we had to stay at the back.So i would book a room at the front if i went there again.The food was not bad the salad buffet was good but the hot food wasnt that great but im not a fussy eater so i always found somthing i liked.The staff are all very nice we didnt have a plug for the sink i asked the lovely young girl on reception for one and she got us one straight away.The hotel is near the old town shops and bars and the promenade is a nice walk out .We didnt go into the hotel bar so i cant comment on what it was like . I would stay there again but never in one of the rooms at the back.

Room Tip: choose room at the front of the hotel

We booked here after alpha rooms cancelled our booking at Villa del Mar , turned out for the best.!! On arrival at the hotel we were upgraded to an elite room free of charge - thanks to the hotel staff for this. Room was spacious , modern and spotless, Large balcony with sunloungers overlooking the sea. Sun terrace on 6th floor was great. Food was good ,lots of choice , lunches in particular were lovely. Staff were friendly and helpful , most guests were Spanish or Dutch and all very friendly.Can't wait to return .

Room Tip: Sea view room is a must , the view is fabulous.

We booked this hotel as a last minute quick break to the sun & were really looking forward to arriving considering the positive reviews.
On arrival the room hasn't been cleaned properly - lots of hairs & stains in the bathroom, stains on the furniture & missing cabinet draw. As we had arrived late we waited to speak to reception until the morning. We asked for the room to be cleaned properly, however arriving back at the hotel later that day the room hadn't had any maid service, and we had to wait until after 9pm!!
The bed was reasonably comfy but the pillows were lumpy and the bathroom towels were so small they barely covered your modesty. We asked for extra but they were not any better.
Breakfast choice was poor - and unfortunately not very tastey.
On a positive note the sea view room is definitely with the extra money- really pretty view of the marina and sea, the beach is literally over the road. Most of the receptionists are very friendly and accommodating with the odd exception.
The hotel does cater more for Spanish guests than British. Got the feeling we were not very welcome.

We are sorry to hear we have not met your expectations. We have an on call all-night team who would have been very happy to assist with the cleaning of the mentioned items, however, no calls from your room were logged. Thus, the bedding and pillows are brand new every start of the season and subject to our quality control. Regarding breakfast, over 40 different items are being offered every day in our breakfast selection, amongst others; cereals, pastries, bread, coffee and tea, and this is generally very much appreciated by our international customers.
Kind regards

Just returned last night from a short stay at the Montemar Benidorm, situated two minutes from the beach in the old part of the town, room was fine, cleanliness throughout was excellent, reception staff extremely helpful at all times, restaurant staff are extremely hard working, the food itself could be a bit mixed but the hotel caters for many nationalities, they try to meet all tastes, bear that in mind, also bear in mind your not being charged 4 or 5 * prices, you get excellent value for money in a very well run hotel. We had room 707 which is to the rear of the hotel, no view to speak of but you can upgrade to a sea view if you wish. The view from the front if the hotel is stunning, you are literally 50 yards from the beach with views down the entire coast. One wee note for the maitre if she reads this, please smile, you have a lovely smile don't hide it!!
All in all, smashing hotel, perfectly placed, great value for money.

Thank you very much for your kind comments and for sharing them with us. I will let our staff know too. Concerning our maitre d'hotel, I would like to point out that she, unfortunately, has recently lost a very close member of her family and hence her sombre look, but yes, I agree with you, she has a beautiful smile. Thank you. We look forward to see you again in the near future.

We have just got back from a 10 day stay here. Fantastic views over the poniente beach and very good for access to the old town. Room not huge but good, with a small balcony, just enough to enjoy the sun. Bathroom new and very good with the best shower ever. Staff always as said, very helpful and willing. Spotlessly clean with nice towels and facilities.
The restaurant a little depressing reminded me of many hotel breakfast rooms. Again very helpful staff and after getting our timing right always a table available. The first week was dominated by many Spanish pensioners taking their free OAP weeks and it was very noisy. Always salads and fruit available, but I think I must have been staying at a different hotel than other comments made, as there was rarely much choice other than fish or meat, no sign of any catering for British taste other British guests were of the same opinion. I say this as a comparison to others hotels we have stayed at in Benidorm all having a huge and varied choice on offer. I am vegetarian and really struggled for a hot meal. Great for lunchtime salads, fresh bread and fruit. The staff were fantastic, but it does not take a lot of imagination to create a lasagne, curry, or something similar. Due to the other factors being brilliant we would stay again but only board only. I hope the owners take note of these comments as others have mentioned these points before. Yes we did manage to eat out very cheaply as one can in this town.
