“Brilliant hotel and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013 via mobile

Just returned today had a lovely week couldn't fault this hotel at all. Lovely hard working friendly helpful staff. The rooms were lovely and kept very clean as was the bathroom. Branded drinks and lovely cocktails. The food was lovely always something to my taste got fed up eating so much all the time. The roof terrace was great sunbathing and drinking cocktails. Met some lovely people. Would definitely recommend this hotel and indeed I have. My friends and I will definitely be returning. Thanks to all the staff who made our stay brilliant

My husband and I stayed at this hotel recently for 2 weeks,just coming home on Saturday 12/10/13.The Villa Del Mar is a fantastic hotel with great staff who make your holiday special.The food is excellent and you will allways find something to eat from the big choice they have.All the staff are great and friendly but a special mention to Rosa,Alexi and Patricia who just made our stay even more enjoyable.Patricia,s special Sangrias are great.Rooms are cleaned to a high standard every day by very pleasant and hard working staff aswell. We went to see Cherly Louise in the entertainment lounge a couple of times and she was very good with a great voice.We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary during our holiday and the staff made it really special for us and we thank them for that.We also met a lot of nice people who really enjoyed their stay when we spoke to them during our holiday.Finally if you are going to Villa Del Mar in the future you will love it. We cant wait to go back in the near future as we really loved our holiday at this hotel.

Room Tip: sea view rooms are worth the extra you pay for them.

Just returned from our second stay.requested a seaview room on 2nd floor and thats what we got.Andreas and ladies on reception excellant.maintainence man dealt with our faulty fridge in 10 mins and replaced it with a brand new one. All bar staff were so friendly and worked very hard. Give these guys a payrise.Problems arose in restaurant.Lots of Spanish pensioners in the hotel for their free holiday courtesy of the Spanish government. I agree with previous comments.They were loud shouting and rude.Pushing in and not waiting in the queue.Staff saw to them first.The menu had lots of veal and pork.Rabbit stew was on also.On Sunday it was beefburger and chicken nuggets.I and others did struggle with the menu.Best meal of the day was breakfast,which catered for all nationalitys.We cant comment on the entertainment as we went out most nights.The hotel did seem to attract the older customer,lots of Spanish pensioners,french and then english.We did find the hotel more crowded this year.Waiting for a table at meal times was not unusual.The location of the hotel is what sells it.

My wife and I have returned this week from a wonderful 7 day trip. We go to Benidorm several times a year but this was our first time at this hotel but not our last. Future trips will be longer!
From our upgrade on arrival to a jacuzzi room I could not find fault with the hotel.
Food excellent and way above canteen quality. Drinks first class, all facilities spotless and staff friendly, profesional and could never do to much to help you if required. Good mix of nationalities also makes for a laid back feel.
The location on the beach makes for a relaxed time with lots to do and see within a short walk.
Cant wait to return.

My wife and I arrived midnighbut on the 28th of september after a three hour delay . The check in was very quick but because of the lateness they could not give us a safe key .
The rooms are modern and clean and the beds are very comfy and a good size bathroom with a good shower once I figured out how to work it .
The food for the first few days was very good but standards slipped and I found little choice . There was a good salad choice but only twice were cold meats served with it . As always in Spain the chefs cannot serve crispy bacon and I think it should be rectified
The bar staff and choice of branded drinks were excellent nothing more to add
Entertainment was only available at night and was not to our tastes . A four star hotel should have daytime entertainment and a higher class of acts at night .
The roof top terrace was excellent but was only open for drink during the day on the last two days of our holiday . It would have been great too have been open for the duration of our stay as it became a great social hub .
The old town of Benidorm is clean full of shops restaurants and bars and I fully recommend Gins and Tonics bar which has over 200 gins
Only went to the new town once and saw a very good Elvis impersonator at the Rock and Roll bar
All in all we had a great time and met loads of great people . I have given the hotel 4 stars but it should really be 3 and a half .
Would I go back honestly I don't know

Hotel was lovely staff very friendly and helpfull too as I we went as a family with our 19mnth old boy. All the female staff loved my lil boy. Only downside to the hotel is the food, after 4 days it was very basic and repetitive and wasn't 4 star food. Not alot of different deserts or mains to choose from eg chicken nuggets and burgers which I think is kids food. Prob would go again if the food improved.
