No problems here with hotel accomodation . Really enjoyed the food , plenty of variety on AI basis and couldn't fault it. Staff were always polite and helpful. Hotel is very big,and busy. Rooms are just fine.
Top front floors have an excellent view over Benidorm. The outside area is nice, but be warned pool is unheated, and in April was absolutely freezing. Our two young girls even wearing wet suits found it too cold to swim in.
There was a diverse mix of people staying at the hotel, lots of spanish pensioners , hen and batchelor parties, families with small children. Some parents letting kids run around bar area unatended caused nuisance. This was no fault of the hotel- look no further than certain parents getting tanked up at AI bar.
Hotel entertainment at night not the best and absence of entertainment for young children was surprising . Sometimes big queues for drinks in evening, . Bar staff did their best to keep up but at peak times waiting 15 minutes in queue for drinks in AI area.
Outside the hotel , nice walk down hill to beach , 15 minutes to Finestrat or Poniente, plenty to see and do in area, though hotel is a long way out of the centre of Benidorm. Bus service directly outside hotel , also a taxi rank is very convenient. Walking to old town a good hours walk along sea front.
All in all a nice hotel , we enjoyed our stay ,4* hotel was a good standard I think some of the negative reviews about food and staff are unfounded.
