We have done one review but as we were asked to do another, not a problem. We found the place to be clean and well kept and on the three occasions we had coffees and prices were good. Pam pipe music absolutely brilliant ( although a personal favourite) and not to everyone's taste were still great. Views were great and... More

If you go to the Placa del Castell you will have brilliant views of both the Benidorm beaches. You do need to climb up to the Placa, but it is not too high or steep. Nice cafes are nearby.

Went here after seeing it on the TV show Benidorm. Fantastic views of the whole of Benidorm but the whole place was a little grubby and in need of a wash and a lick of paint.

This is worth the walk, showing the whole view of both Levante and Poniente beaches. Often, film crews are around, and not just for Itv! Nice gin and tonic with a breeze and a view, is a favourite pastime for me in one of the cafes at the top.

Intriguing place to visit, when you get your breath back :) 72 steps up from one side or a steep incline from the other, but well worth it. Fabulous views, but I would have liked to be able to get a little more information about it.

As previous reviews, the views are stunning, it is a magical spot. However, there is not a lot to see after the views so don't make a special trip, fit it in if your passing.

Fantastic place to go to see all of Benidorm. You can see both beaches from here. In the summer months you get artists here. A must if you visit Benidorm
