Hotel Don Pancho

The Hotel Don Pancho is anchored one block from Levante Beach, with a clutch of bars, cafés and restaurants right outside. The centre of Benidorm is only 15 minutes’ walk away, too.

It’s not hard to see why this place bagged a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2014 – the staff get heaps of praise, there’s lots of entertainment, and its location puts bars, restaurants, and sands all on the doorstep.

Bedrooms here feature comfy beds and wooden furniture, with walls painted in a warm peach and white colour scheme. They all come with a balcony or terrace, too.

This Hotel is very well run the staff are a credit to the owners. The Hotel is clean and the buffet food is excellent. The Hotel is due to close on 1st November 2015 until Spring 2016 for an upgrade. This is one Hotel that I would definitely recommend.It has the benefit of a heated covered outdoor pool in the winter months. More

excellent Don Pancho

we have just returned from our third visit to this lovely , friendly hotel. we meet such lovely people who return year after we hopefully will. The staff are are welcoming and happy and do an excellent job in making their clients holiday memorable, also there is a wide choice of food catering for most tastes. The Don Pancho is by far one of the best hotels in Benidorm for friendliness, location, cleanliness and comfort many thanks for a wonderful stay.More

Just returned yesterday from our second visit to The Don Pancho. All the good things we remembered from our first visit were, we are happy to say, still in place this time around. It is well known that the hotel is closing for a refurbishment later this year and in a very few places the hotel is showing the need for this. We were in one of the rooms yet to be modernised but it was perfectly comfortable and adequate. Hopefully the lifts will be re-furbished too. Although there are five lifts even at quiet times the wait for a lift to arrive seemed extraordinarily long. The plans for the refurbishment make the hotel look really stylish and we look forward to our first visit after the re-fit. As always the hotel was very clean and tidy. The food exceptionally good and plentiful. Drinks if charged to your room account are very reasonably priced. The ground floor lounge and bar area are really comfortable, hopefully this will not change too much with the alterations. We found all the staff cheerful, helpful and efficient. They really do work long hard hours but remain so pleasant. Looking forward to our next visit.More

Watch out thieves about!

We booked through Thomson to stay here, having previously stayed in one of their other resorts of a similar standard. The rooms were not of the same standard shown in the images which was disappointing & then on our first day/night I had all my jewellery & a pair of shoes stolen from our room!we raised the issue with Thomson who spoke to the hotel management. Neither one was willing to pay to replace the items or cover our insurance costs. I was not impressed. On the positive side....the food was really good,the staff in the restaurant were lovely & we met some lovely people staying there. Just watch out for your belongings-even the things you don't think people would steal!!More

Having previously taken summer/autumn holidays at the Don Pancho we decided to book our 15th visit for the New Year (2014) and we weren't disappointed. As usual the staff on reception were very welcoming, especially Alexander who always looks well groomed and is so friendly and helpful, also Lola who always has a warm smile. The New Year Gala dinner was excellent, the atmosphere great and the staff very cheerful and attentive as they were kept very busy, the drinks being free until the early hours - a great gesture from the hotel. This being our first winter stay we were very lucky to have sunshine every day for two weeks - an added bonus. As usual we found the cleanliness of the rooms and service excellent. The restaurant staff are always hospitable and variety of food very good. Even on our early morning departure day the staff on reception were very helpful with our luggage. All around another brilliant holiday at the Don Pancho. Looking forward to our next holiday booked for June.More
