Very Spanish hotel, easy parking just behind the hotel in underground car park, 10 Euros per day. ( Ask for the underground car park). Caters mainly for elderly Spanish people who definitely enjoy themselves at the hotel, very little English spoken except for staff. Very helpful and friendly desk staff, if you ask then they will try to get you... More

Recently back from a stay at Sol y Sombra in Benidorm, Spain. The reception staff were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble for them. With their help we were able to hire a mobility scooter and they were able to print out railway and bus timetables for us. The food was plentiful and varied. The domestic staff were very friendly...

In winter almost all the rooms were occupied. Most retired people. Bed and shower oké. Food was very good. For young people nothing to do. But the sea is also nearby.....Its a disaster to park your car.

Really not as bad as we expected, food was good, lots of choice we went full board as not much more than breakfast only. Nice and clean, loads of hot water. No views and noisy when they empty the bins. No smart tv to swop language into English which we have one to expect these days.

I have just returned from a long weekend at this hotel. The hotel itself was lovely and clean. Maid service every day who made our bed and cleaned the bathroom. Got fresh towels every day too. The hotel staff all seemed very friendly and helpful. The language barrier was a bit of a problem at times but got there in... More
