We actually were at this hotel for a business event. Excellent staff, great service, our 2 bedroom, with living dining room and 2 bathrooms, as well as terrace, overlooked the golf course with views to the sea. It might've been in need of some touch up paint, but it was a fantastic space. This is a HUGE hotel complex with many different buildings, it is like a small town in fact. Every meal that we had was better than expected, far better considering the amount of people in our group. I would return here with family and friends. Oh yes, this is a golf hotel as well!

My wife and I spent 4 nights from 10th November on a golf break at the hotel. We were lucky enough to be given a room upgrade to a superior room with King size bed within 'The Level' section of the hotel. The room had a view of the golf course, large bathroom with separate shower, large walk in closet, mini bar with comp soft drinks on arrival and a separate lounge area. No complaints there!
On the first night the restaurant was a buffet which really was first class. Nicely laid our restaurant with linen tablecloths and napkins. Great selection including show cooking of various meats and fish. Breakfast is also a buffet with everything you could ask for. Top marks again!
We played golf first on the longer Levante course. Buggy cost a reasonable €18. An enjoyable course not seen at it's best due to poor weather. Although there are 5 different tees on each hole only the yellow and red were in play.
We also played the shorter Poniente course where the buggy was included in the break we booked. Would imagine cost would be the same but would suggest, despite the length of the course, a buggy in essential given that the course is hilly and there is a good distance between the tees. This is a lovely course with some nice elevated tees. Not difficult but challenging enough especially with the wind. Don't think because it's a par 62 it's a pitch and putt course, it really is worth a visit (though some of the ladies tees are ridiculously short).
Dinner on the remaining nights was in the very nice Italian themed restaurant. Set menu on half board with a selection of 3 starters, mains and desserts. Thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service. Special thanks to Desiree and Lola.
We visited the Spa which was fine but at €25 euros each or €40 per couple felt it was overpriced in relation to better spas we have visited. Sauna and steam rooms and showers seemed very dated. Pool area and salt bath were fine. Towels a bit threadbare. Staff again very pleasant.
The small gym is free for guests. Equipment is modern and in very good condition. OK as a holiday gym with water and towels supplied.
There was only one bar open with entertainment on the first night only. Bar prices at €3.50 for a 330ml bottle of local beer or a glass of wine. A Bloody Mary costs €9 and red wine starts around €18 a bottle.
There is ample parking which costs €2 a day (more for underground car park). Personally don't see the need to charge guests but there is no real choice but to use car park if, like us, you arrive by car.
This does appear to be a lovely complex with fantastic pool areas and a good selection of restaurants which will obviously be open in high season. It was very quiet during our stay and will undoubtedly be completely different during high season.
In short, very happy to recommend this hotel and golf resort. Plenty amenities on site with Benidorm only a €12 taxi ride away for those who want the beach or the night life.
Thanks to all at Villaitana. We're already planning a return visit.

Great hotel, fantastic room with fabulous views and very very clean. Staff very helpful but service was sometimes slow when busy. The food here in evenings is disappointingly poor and as the hotel is a little remote you have no choice but to taxi to benidorm for a meal which is a real shame. Breakfast is good though.

Stunning hotel in beautiful surroundings, the rooms were immaculate and wanted for nothing. Only criticism would be service at breakfast where staff appear very preoccupied, this was a golf break in october for 8 and there was even transport to your room from the course. Recommend anytime

A very quiet and relaxing hotel not too far away from benidorm. It truly is luxury. I went there late october for a half term getaway with my family, it was very relaxing seeing as no other guest was even there so we had a choice to pick from all the pools. The big pools wern't heated so swimming was very chilly! The breakfast buffet was amazing lots of choice the staff were lovely too! One critisicm of the hotel would be that theres not enough sign postage around telling you where things are, aswell as that on the first day we were told we were allowed to use the level facilities but we weren't allowed to use their pool despite that everywhere we went in the hotel we were treated like a level guest. So we were all quite confused about what we were allowed to go in and what we weren't. But mainly it was a lovely area and the archutecture was amazing

Organised a 4 day hen weekend for 7 to Benidorm mid September. Chose Melia Villaitana because it was near, but not in, Benidorm. We were not disappointed.
Hotel was lovely, clean, staff were excellent. Arrived after midnight and receptionist re-arranged room plan to put our 4 rooms together.
Grounds and pool are spotless and well kept. Opera singer in the Plaza on the Friday night, what a lovely atmosphere to sit and enjoy a few Cosmo's with the girls when we got back from dinner!
We were slightly out of season so pool area and restaurants were lovely and quiet.
Did not use the spa but it looked very inviting.
Buffet breakfast was included in our rate and was really good, loads of choice.
We spent the days by the pool and the evenings in town, suited us perfectly. Would definately stay in this resort again and would not hesitate to recommend it to people. This is the view of our entire party.
Taxi into Benidorm was 10-12 Euros and took 10 minutes.
As for central Benidorm, tacky and full of drunk people but excellent laugh for a hen night!

This hotel is a perfect place for a "less crowded lover" couples. The hotel is very spacious with different wings and very large swimming pools and there is a very nice golf club also. I would love to go back one day as I liked it very much. Beautiful rooms, spacious bathroom, and immaculate interior.

Room Tip: Get a room which looks over the pool and the golf course as well.
