“Absolutely astounding!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Stayed here with a friend at the end of July 2013. What can I say, but absolutely fantastic! I know that there are a few moans on here about the bar closing at midnight and I must admit this did come as rather a shock on the first evening. However, we soon found ways around this by going to the local liquor store and buying a bottle of Bacardi and a bottle of cola. After all the booze is relatively cheap there. We opted to upgrade to Sandos Select, which entitled us to use the select lounge which we found a real highlight! Endless supply of snacks and branded drinks on offer. Entertainment wasn't the best, but to be honest we were happy enough to take ourselves off to the lounge. Food was great. Yes you could quite easily have had the same thing every day, but there was plenty of variety. Only criticism on the food would be too much salt used on the meat. The steak pie being particularly salty was actually in eatable and I'm not a fussy eater! The spa facilities were an added bonus and we had a pass to use the spa circuit with our room upgrade. We actually went back and had a gemstone massage on another occasion which was bliss. I'd go back in a heartbeat!! Reasonable price, certainly value for money.

Room Tip: Certainly pay that bit extra for a select room.

Not to far from the beach this hotel is a must if you want a quite hotel with no little one"s running around as it is adults only. If you can go for the upgrade it is worth it with a good size room with two double beds, bathrobes,slippers,there is also a lounge where you can so for top grade drinks and read the papers also free computer use. The food is also good quality and plenty to choose from.You can also if your feeling energetic go to the gym for a good work out. Overall a good hotel for that relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: if you can go for a select room

This is the best we have stayed in but so popular we cant always get booked so will do so in advance next time. Rooms excellent, food exceptional, staff excellent, location excellent. cant fault it. Would have liked to go for Christmas but all booked. The Spa is especially nice and the steak pie to die for and this is said by a very fussy eater.

I stayed here for a few nights at the beginning of October 2013 with a couple of mates. Benidorm is what it is with a bit of something for everyone. It’s busy all year round and is a firm favourite of mature people, younger couples or stag and hen parties or alike. The beaches are a very good quality sand and are kept clean but can get a bit busy.

We went with Travel Republic and everything went well. Just be warned however, that Ryanair are getting a bit pedantic. They weighed every cabin-case and got everyone to put them in the metal cage/measuring frame that they use. They state the rules clearly and are within their rights to enforce the rules, so don’t get caught out!

This hotel is a little gem and once again I thank the users of Tripadvisor for putting it on the map. It is situated near enough to get to everything but far enough to be quiet enough to get a good sleep at night too. It is quietly understated in some ways but you notice immediately how clean it is with friendly staff. The rooms are a good standard, spacious and clean with comfortable beds. There is a good size bathroom with shower gel and soap provided.

The restaurant downstairs is very presentable with a great range of food on display. I found the quality of food was very pleasing. In addition, staff are friendly and efficient here too.

The pool area is a mixture of sun beds and on the lower level, tables and chairs. It got a bit cluttered at times as there was always shaded areas. Again, the area was clean and tidy with good standards of furniture. There was always something to do and the entertainment rep was busy making sure people were aware of the rifle shooting, table tennis evening entertainment and so on. She was a credit to the hotel along with numerous other members of staff who simply want to make sure you enjoy your stay there. Staff uniforms were generally smart and tidy to create a good impression.

We didn’t upgrade and found what we got was a good standard anyway. They do give you plastic cups for drinks around the pool but this is an acceptable practise for obvious reasons. I did notice that the upgrade area went into the shade in the afternoon if that matters to you. The evening entertainment was a bit limited but there’s plenty to go and see/do in the vicinity.

I would definitely return to this hotel. I think it is a little gem. I’ve used the Mediterraneo near the Benidorm Palace and the Bali. They were both good too but for me, Benidorm now means using the Sandos Monaco without hesitation…

From arrival to departure nothing could be faulted. Wonderful staff, lovely spacious rooms, excellent food & good, professional entertainment, varied each night. Always kept us entertained. Small but adequate pool, sunbed area & patio tables & chairs. Quiet carpeted corridors, such a bonus when you want to sleep. Would recommend to couples & the more mature customers.

We stayed for a week on an all inclusive basis and upgraded and we were not disappointed. Food was average but always a great choice. Upgraded room was fabulous. Staff friendly and helpful. Pool area can get a bit congested when hotel is busy but you are only a few minutes walk from the beach. The spa is certainly worth a visit - thoroughly enjoyable. Only one small gripe - they really need to be able to serve upgraded clients in the entertainment area in the evening - this service was not available to us

Room Tip: Upgrade to obtain better room and international drinks
