“Flash Hotel benidorm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

We stayed in the Flash from Thursday 23 May - Tuesday 28th May, first impressions were great, Location was absolutely perfect so good start, the Staff at reception were very helpful and courteous telling us where everything was in the hotel, we were then told that as dinner had finished we could go into the restaurant where we could have some sandwiches etc, a nice gesture I thought, so next port of call was the lifts to floor 8, ok there are 3 of them but they are a bit slow, but that's not the end of the world, up to our room which was 804, the view from the back was nice as it overlooked a few hotels pools etc, the room to be honest was nice but basic, it served the purpose we wanted,, very comfy beds and en-suite etc, the view from the front was overlooking the Neptune bar and main street,, I thought it was good but each to their own, we hired a safe which is a must !! not that we didn't trust the staff its just basic necessity, so down to the restaurant for breakfast and I must say it was very very good, cereals and full fry up and fruit etc, dinner again in my opinion was excellent, there was a good selection and all freshly cooked, I tried everything they had and have no complaints at all, now the bar area at the front of the hotel, this is very nice , and we were very surprised at how cheap the bar prices were, we expected to be paying more but happy to sit for a while listening to the entertainment, ok it was not exactly my cup of tea but I have no complaints, the guys singing did a good job, as I have said the staff were very polite and courteous, so overall I think this hotel is a good 4 star (Holiday Hotel) which is totally different from a 4 star (Business Hotel), I think people need to keep this in mind when reviewing hotels.
would I recommend this hotel to others? absolutely , in fact we were going to go to Portugal next year but have cancelled and going back here instead.

Room Tip: Request high floors for best views, front or back has good views.

Just back from 5 NIghts here - and will defo be back! Hotel was new, modern and had everything you need. A great find for Benidorm for the younger people NOT on stag and hen do's! Hotel is adult only, Pool Area great with sun all day - which is unusual for Benidorm due to high rises. Hotel really close to everything - nightlife, restaurants and beach.

Only little faults - Shower screen leaks water badly and only got bath mats on first night. No 'dressy' shorts for dinner (although footbal tops ok??). AirCon central controlled and only came on late afternoon and at one speed, was unable to put on at night.

But they were just little things. Was on Half Board - Breakfast and Dinner had something for everyone and freshly prepared. Will DEFINATELY return here and recommend it to everyone.

Thank you FLASH HOTEL for a great little sun break! :0)

Room Tip: Pool View - looks onto the hotel and pool that they film the comedy 'Benidorm' in. Might see...

I would not tell anyone to go this hotel the food is disgusting the restaurant staff are miserable the hotel looks lovely but this not a four star by any means they need to down grade it to a 2-3star and that's being kind I would never go back there even if it was free

Room Tip: Room 310 is perfect for the view

Just returned from a weeks holiday at the flash and had a great time! Hotel is lovely throughout with great decor. Rooms a decent size with comfy beds. Reception always friendly and smiling. Food the usual buffet style. Great bar for relaxing and people watching. Great location, not too loud but in close proximity of everything.Only things thay could be improved were that they didnt have ironing boards, which for a 4* was a little surprising. Also more effort could be made with the activities by the pool to encourage people to join in. The only activity I saw happening was aqua aerobics, once. Although a full days itinerary was displayed.Anyway, all in all a great hotel and I wouldnt hesitate to stay here again!

6 of us went over there and stayed for 3 nights, the hotel was fab, could it comment on restaurant as we only had bed and breakfast. Breakfast was fine.

Wish there was more of a choice of food on the terrace but maybe in the main weeks there will be.

Nice not to have lots of children there as well

Bedrooms were really good with king size twin beds, just wish there had been a kettle and decent pillows.
Although this hotel is amongst the night life, it was not a problem with the noise.
The staff could not do enough to help.
I would recommend this hotel and would definitely go back

Room Tip: We were in the 4th floor, no probs with noise or lifts

Visited the Flash Hotel for a good friends stag week early may 2013. Now dont get us wrong, the word STAG will put people off, but we are all businessmen with good jobs and families and we are very particualr where we stay. well behaved and well travelled gents who know how to conduct themselves properly.
So then the Flash...... Welcomed by friendly staff late at night, where a meal had been set aside in the dining room, thanks for that, a cold sald, but most welcome. The rooms you cannot fault, very swish and modern, ultra clean and very impressive.
The hotel is situated right oposite Morgans Bar (better know as neptunes from itv's BENIDORM series) the actual hotel is about three buildings away, and the pool backs onto the flash. So you are right ontop of the nightlife and about 2 mins from the seafront. I would say ideally situated.
Pool area is nothing to shout about, but you can always get a bed (take a towel) and the bar runs happy hours too. Its clean and does the job but if you want waterslides and the such like, its not going to impress you.
Breakfast is manic, there isnt enough room in my opinion if the hotel is full, the food is edible, something for everyone, but its not laid back, its an experience.
Whis leads me to my big gripe that 2 of us were refused entry to the eving meal as we were wearing shorts ??? not scruffy shorts, very swish and smart ones, but hotel were not having any of it. It didnt say that was the policy when we booked so i challenged the management. Now we didnt have fisty cuffs, in fact the manager was pleasant, but i felt i was banging my head a gainst a brick wall, as they would not budge. So we had a refund each night for our meals, and to be honest i wouldnt have wanted to eat in that environment, alot of pushing and shoving going on in that dining room. The manager kept saying it was a 4 star hotel and they had standards, i couldnt argue, if thats the rules, then thats the rules. But 4 star you are NOT!!!!!.
I brought to their attention that the front of the hotel has a bar area that anyone tom dick and harry can use through the day, and they do. The drags and boozers abuse the happy hours and the front of house is pretty shocking if your with family, especially kids. Women and men falling all over the place isnt a picture i would want for my supposed 4 star hotel !!!!.
They have a resident singer there, who has the heaviest microphone in Benidorm, as he cannot hold it up to his mouth and has so many effects on his voice, it just doesnt work (sorry piccy but true) its a bit like a bad social club come night time.

All in all, would i book again, no i dont think so, they may brand it as 4 star, but i would say that is for the rooms quality, its very chic dont get me wrong, but whilst the hotel attract the scumbags to drink cheap beer, its going to get a 3 star from me.
The spanish in general want your money, bookings, but dont want to hear your opinions, shame because we are paying your wages at the end of the day.

Really good modern hotel, very friendly staff. Very clean well maintained. Pool area is nice not over crowded. Only down side is the tiled floors in the rooms, can be quiet noisy with people moving the furniture or walking round in heels.The restaurant was airy, food nice & hot with plenty of choice.

Room Tip: would say all rooms are good
