Me and my family had a great time in Benidorm and for my first ever family holiday i was far from disappointed, we stayed in the Levante Beach Apmts which is in a great location 5 mins form the beach which stetches for nearly 1.5miles leading all the way into Old Town, the beach was clean and tidy and monitored (land and sea) all day and well into the night, and cleaned and raked daily. There was loads to do, whether young or old and plenty to see in the town itself eg, the Sol Pelicanos - Ocas, one of the locations for the TV series Benidorm.
We found quite a few good places to eat, Le Chat Noir located on Avenida De Madrid and The Yorkshire Pride II located on Calle De Londres Run by Lesley & Tod from Castleford, stunning breakfasts from 3-8 Euros and roast dinners served 7days a wk for 6-7.50 Euros consisting of 2 pots, 5veg, yorkies, a good portion of meat and home made gravy, great value for money.
As for the hotel/appartments, everyone has their own views of what they expect, me i wasnt disappointed but nore was i blown away, however the rooms were more than adiquate for what we wanted, all the staff on reception were friendly their english satisfactory (special mention for Fernando & Mari, loved em to bits), and when asked always got what we asked for, the rooms themselves where clean on arrival and seviced every 3 days. The buffet restaurant across the road (Levante Club) we found to be clean with a good atmosphere, the staff were friendly and efficient, tables were epmtied regularly and completely stripped and changed as quick as pleople were leaving, the food was good, could have been a little hotter but that wasnt really an issue and there was always a good selection (i think they could do with an english chef tho ;) ).
And now for our rep: Jennifer (our Thompson rep) was awesome, a young Scottish girl from Glasgow, bright and bubbly, always smiling, always willing to help, gave good tips on where to go and what to see, we had a great day out at Terra Natura with her and other hotel reps from Benidorm (Karen, Ashley, Ben and Fye to name a few), all with the same bubbly atitude toward the holiday makes.
Over all an exelent holiday with plenty of sun and things to do, I will definately be going back.
The sun is always shining on the appartment, 7th floor up wards will serve you well.
