Lovely room on 12th Floor with amazing views of Benidorm. Clean and with all amenities you require. Food poor no authentic Spanish food at all, just lots of chips and burgers, a bigger variety would have been much better.

This was without a doubt the worst hotel I have stayed in. The food was bland and discusting. It was like a crowded canteen racing to get their last meal. The pools were so crowded it was unbelievable. The baby's never wore nappies so the poor life guard was fishing out fieses on a regular basis, total unacceptable and discusting. We moved rooms 4 times, each room was just as dated as the first, the hotel thought that by putting us in a higher room was a better room. All it meant was we had to wait for the lift longer. This was without doubt the worst hotel I have ever been to. Should be on hotel hell programme

Travelled with disabled mum and sister. Had requested on booking a "disabled access" room which we were given, unfortunately these rooms don't have a balcony, disappointing but not a big deal. We were on first floor. Impressive reception area, rooms a little bit tired but we were only sleeping there so again they were quite acceptable. We found the beds comfy. all the staff without exception were marvellous and very friendly and helpful. The food was fine, always something you could eat even for a very fussy mother! But oh, the noise in the dining room, when the room is full (which it nearly always was) it accommodates almost 900 people!! I have to say the noise was mainly coming fro screaming kids. The staff are under a Lot. of pressure in dining room to have tables cleared - they couldn't have worked any harder, but definitely more staff needed as guests are still queuing at 945 to have dinner. Pool area busy and loads of empty sunbeds taken with towels. Entertainment was in Spanish, but mainly ok. The build up to the Michael Jackson tribute night was over the top, but if you want to see it younwill have to get your seat before 9pm! The area has alovely beach close by (downhill) but we walked into town centre and Levante on a regular basis (20 mins o so along the prom) or approx 6euro for taxi (some of the taxis you can wheel wheelchair straight in the back without person getting out). The worst part for us was the lifts. 2 lifts clearly marked for wheelchair access, yet able bodied guests used them constantly. One man waited for 30mins with his wheelchair bound friend before I intervened and would not anyone else into the lift!!! All in all we enjoyed our holiday but just a tad far out from centre.

Read all the bad reviews after we had booked and was worried about going. On arrival the reception looks great, other people on our coach were commenting and jealous! The guy at reception was more than happy to place us on the 29th floor with a sea view. Very friendly. The room was clean, spacious, great bathroom, yes a little dated, but we hadn't paid U.K. 4 star prices, and the views were spectacular. The beds were firm, and very comfortable, we slept very well. The pool bar was really nice, great choice of drinks/cocktails. The first few staff that served us couldn't have been nicer, even though they spoke as much English as we did Spanish, we felt very welcomed. There were a couple of bar staff over the holiday that weren't as friendly, but generally we put this down to them being run off their feet, and did notice that the Spanish customers were getting the same abrupt treatment. The entertainment was mostly Spanish, some were good, some weren't. There were always sun loungers available at the pool, but yes if you wanted your pick of where to be you needed to be down before 10am. For the main building there were 7 lifts, 2 of which offer views over Benidorm. There are 43 floors in that building, so yes you do have to wait for a lift sometimes, we usually only waited a couple of minutes. During peak times, after meals, there were queues, but even then we only waited about 5 minutes. The food is the big let down. Although we booked half board, we only ate there a couple of times. It is very bland, plain, tasteless. Well worth visiting some of the nicer restaurants nearby. For quick snacks and much cheaper sangria (€5 as opposed to €12 a jug at the hotel) the New York cafe right across the street is great for sandwiches and breakfast. We found some nice restaurants on the way to the beach, and along the sea front for authentic Spanish food. It wasn't far to get to new town, taxis right outside the hotel took you to the centre and only cost €10. A lot of the bad reviews seem to really be over the top. The hotel was not disappointing, and we would stay there again.
