I am staying at the Melia Benidorm and am enjoying it. It is a very luxurious high rise twin building with marble floors, large rooms, good air conditioning, nice large bathrooms with good showers, nice ambience, large lawns with shady palm trees, a large outside pool and indoor pool with a gym, two restaurants, etc. Very luxurious. If you want to spend your time in pleasant pool side surroundings with good weather this is a good place to go. I have found the staff to be very helpful. I am not eating my meals at the hotel as it is less expensive to eat elsewhere. Every room faces the sea with a balcony, although it should be noted that the hotel is quite some distance from the sea and there are several other high rises blocking about 90% of the sea view. You will not be at the beach and then just nicking back to the hotel to grab a forgotten novel, it will be quite a trek. The hotel is at the far end of a very good sandy beach, near where all of the low budget Brits have their accommodation.
The question is not whether this hotel is good but whether you would want to come to Benidorm itself for your holiday. It is definitely geared towards the very very low budget British traveller with lots of cheap tacky clothing/novelty shops and English breakasts and English pubs advertised everywhere. If you are looking for a more upmarket destination with good restaurants and quality shops you should look elsewhere. There are a considerable number of elderly Spanish tourists here enjoying the sun and the sing alongs and dancing patios, so if you are elderly you might enjoy it, if you are between 20-45 and used to more upscale places you might like to think about going somewhere else.
