I stopped at the Presidente Hotel in July 2013 half board with my girlfriend for 10 days.
Hotel itself is situated in a good location near to many local bars, restaurants and about a 5 minute walk from the beach. Room was small and dated but very clean, had a pool view from the 6th floor. Balcony was decent size however very very loud on the evenings due to the local bars.
Hotel food was a mega letdown, it really pees me off when people rave about how good it was, i know its a 3 star hotel and you get what you pay for but it literally made our stomachs turn most nights from all the grease. One night they served Kebab as the main dish.... Kebab seriously? Some times food was cold even after the restaurant had just opened, milk was always warm at breakfast. Some nights we missed the food as we couldn't take cold veg and greasy meets, we ate at a local bar called the Wooky Hollow, check it out... BRILLIANT.
Pool was lovely however most sun beds where reserved for the bulk of the day when nobody was on them which was rather annoying when you want to lie back and soak up some rays.
Weekend hotel often filled up with stag and hen parties. One was on our floor, i know this isn't the hotels fault as such however was rather annoying listening to stupid chavs shouting obscenities at everyone and then to be woken up in the early hours to someone being loudly sick all the corridor.
One other point about this hotel is that it has 3 very very small lifts, took ages to come and door kept shutting on people when they where still walking in (watch the kids!) Would feel very sorry for any older people who couldn't manage flights and flights of stairs as sometimes we and other people we spoke to would be waiting 5-10 minutes for a lift during peak times.
Overall hotel served our needs for the 10 days in Benidorm. Wouldn't return to the hotel in the future.
Food - Greasy and just crap no wait TERRIBLE
Noise - Can be very noisy on nights (only so many times i can hear Sex on Fire)
Lifts - Watch them doors shutting on you!!
