They say it’s what’s on the inside that counts – and that’s certainly true of this place. From the outside, it’s a typical high-stacked Benidorm hotel. But inside, it’s recently had a serious makeover – especially the shared areas. The bar, for example, has a funky retro vibe, with orange and white chairs. Likewise the lobby and lounge have a stylish edge, with geometric sofas and low-slung armchairs. Rooms, meanwhile, are quite simple, but are kitted out with the essentials like air-conditioning and satellite TV.
The hotel scores points for location, too. It manages to walk the line between ‘in a secluded spot’ and ‘in the heart of the action’. You’ll find it on a quiet road that’s only about a ten-minute walk to the main bars and restaurants of Benidorm. Another ten and you’ll be at Levante Beach.
As for the pool here, it’s a decent size and is split into three separate sections. You’ll also find a pool bar, serving up pizzas and toasted sandwiches during the day.
On the subject of food, buffet meals are served in the restaurant. Like most parts of the hotel, it’s been given the minimalist treatment. Rounding things off there’s a British pub, where you’re guaranteed a decent pint.

Great Value For The Money
This hotel was all it said it would be. The place was spotless, and staff all very friendly and helpful. My only bad side is for families who are full board, the restaurant doesn't provide any kind of drink at lunch or dinner. They expect you to buy their products, which is expensive over a week or Two. They should at least provide water free of charge. Small bottle for one was 1euro 20, you x that with say a family of 4 twice a day for a 2 week holiday not cheap.More

We have just returned from a 11 day stay at this Hotel, what a fab time we had. The food was very good the hotel very clean and staff all amazing. Probably not suitable if you have small children as the age of cliental is over 60yrs, but whilst most are miserable the rest are lovely. The room was a let down as it was not cleaned properly on a daily basis, the pool very nice and sunbeds always available. Drinks if you are not AI are very cheap even branded spirits, 5 mins from the strip Fab Fab...More

Stayed from 1st April for 1 week. Not a bad hotel for the money, a wee bit dated in places but quite good. Room was ok, beds were comfy, asked for extra pillows and got them no problem. Bathroom a fine size, shower in middle of bath but that was fine, didn't flood the place anyway lol. Downside, only one electrical point in room, luckily it was at the dressing table. Cleaners in every day , towel change etc. Staff very nice and friendly. Emailed beforehand and requested certain room and got what I wanted which was great. Food, well I'm not a fussy eater but I did think I had lost my sense of taste, not good at all. I think it's the only thing that let's this hotel down. Having said that I would go back for a quick week away if the price was right cos It's cheap enough to eat out. One thing that did annoy me was that they never tidied up the sun loungers at night, they were all left the way that people had left them. Nice touch was the bottle of wine and chocs delivered to the room, you wouldn't get that in a 3/4 star.More
Does what it says on the tin
The hotel is excellent value for money. The staff were efficient and very helpful. The room is basic but as you only use it to get sleep it was more than adequate for our needs. Can't really find all any fault, this place charges budget rates and gives you back a hotel far superior to it's 2 star rating. Highly recommended!More

Don't miss it!
This was our first stay.We emailed ahead and asked for room on 10th floor,facing the pool and that was exactly what we got.As thanks us for our query,we were delivered a bottle of wine to our room.The room was very good indeed although the walls are thin and our next door had their t.v..on early in the morning and sometimes late at night.Why do people go on holiday to watch .t.v./? The food was good, as was the entertainment at night and the price of drinks was really cheap cheap.A gin and tonic and a Baileys cost about 2 euros each.The location is good,very near the market and a 10 minute stroll from the beach. The pool area is very 70's and although it looks good on the pictures, close up it is very dated. Would we go back? Certainly. Benidorm is a place that grows on you, once you get used to the skyscrapers.Old town is .excellentMore
