“Very enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Stayed at the Royal for three weeks over Christmas and New Year. Staff were excellent, very helpful and always had a smile on their face whether it be reception, restaurant, bar or maid service. Food was good with choice of 2 fish, 2 meat, and local dishes every day. Great choice for breakfast. Did have a problem one day with a cistern which would not stop running, reported it and it was repaired within an hour. Was lucky enough to have room on 9th floor so great view and lovely sunny balcony. Gala dinner on Xmas Eve and Xmas day was excellent. Did not attend the New Year's Eve dinner but heard it was also very good. Did hear complaints about the lack of entertainment but this did not bother me as went out each night. You can attend the entertainment at the two local hotels in the group, Victoria (right across the road) and Princesa (100 yards away). Nearest pub for sport was Jimmy's Red Lion, very friendly. My choice of pub was the Bodhran which is just off Levante beach on Avda Doctor Ortis LLorca - excellent for sport with three different screens and great for an Irish Craic every night. Intend returning next Christmas assuming there is 'room at the inn'

Dear Brumil,
Good Morning from Benidorm. Thank you for taking time to write about your "very enjoyable" stay at the RH Royal over Christmas and the New Year.

Reading your review I am very pleased to hear that you found our staff helpful and smiling and that we were able to take care of your cistern issue efficiently. I am happy that the food was to your liking along with the choice and that you were happy with your room.

We do have our British Pub the “Royal Crown” downstairs, which you make no mention of, but hopefully for a future visit the Pub, is on site and has been opened with our British guests in mind.

We look forward to welcoming you back again in the near future and once again than you for sharing your opinion on tripadvisor,

Kindest Regards

Ana Martinez – Manager

Good Morning Mr & Mrs Thompson & Mrs Montague,

Sincere thanks for writing review of the Hotel RH Royal.

I am delighted to hear that our hotel is the “nicest and cleanest”, and that our staff are excellent. They do indeed work very hard and I am very proud of them.

I know how much you appreciate your favourite TV channels and keeping up with your soaps; I must say I like watching the “meerkat ads” just before Coronation Street, how funny!!

Our chef will be happy you think his meals are great, especially if you have a fussy eater in the family! Thank you.

It was our please to have you stay with us and we look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel,

Kindest Regards

This was our second trip to the Royal and we weren't disappointed. The hotel was clean, the staff were helpful and the english TV channels were a bonus. The food is still very good, although not quite as good as last time. The location is excellent, with all the attractions of Benidorm within walking distance or a short bus ride away, but no noise at night.

We would recommend it!

Room Tip: We asked for a low floor - the room was spacious and overlooked the front entrance

Hello Dio Rox,

Thank you for reviewing the Hotel RH Royal and for choosing to stay with us once again.

Good to hear that you pleased with the addition of the English channels, lots of guests have mentioned how they like to be able to watch their favourite programmes.

I have noted your comment on the food and will review this. Location is very good and excellent for those who like bars, restaurants and shops, along with close proximity to both beaches.

We look forward to seeing you again soon,

Kindest Regards

Just returned after 4 days, we were a party of eight and we all had a brilliant time. All the staff in the hotel were helpful and friendly nothing was too much trouble. Special mention to bar staff who looked after us so well. Rooms were spacious and comfortable with flat screen tv and kettle for tea making and we had a sea view! Food good and one of our party needed a special diet and she received excellent meals and service. Good location for old town. Would definately return.

Room Tip: Ask for high floor at front for best views

when we arrived we changed rooms 3 times the rooms were 3 star at best but i can say they were spotlessly clean. The whole hotel was spotless and all of the staff were wonderful.

The tv in the room had english channels so you could watch itv and bbc if you wanted. i traveled with my 15 year old son and i was surprised that the hotel was so quiet until i realised it is adult only.

The food was hit and miss but breakfast was always good. There was a hot school pudding with custard as well as a cold choice of desert every day. They provided a kettle in the room and would provide sachets of coffee/ tea milk upon request.

The gym is small but again clean and useful.

As a single woman traveling ( especialy after visiting the horrendous new town) i felt safe in the hotel, the staff were always helpful and the hotel was secure and respectable.

the first day there i wanted to change hotel but i am used to staying in 5 star so it took a bit of getting used to. However, i would definetly stay again, the staff make this hotel, they cannot do enough for you, the desk is always manned and as i say there are always cleaners around and they are all polite and welcoming.

I would stay here again if i ever venture to benidorm and my mother and sister will be staying there this year due to our recomendation.

Good Morning AH66,

Happy New Year and thank you for writing a review of the Hotel RH Royal.

It is a real plus to have English TV channels in your rooms, especially BBC1, 2 and ITV1, 2, as I believe they are the most popular UK channels.

The location of the hotel is excellent and it’s nice to know that you felt safe with us. After you settled down it appears that you enjoyed your stay and the installations of the hotel.

We certainly hope you do venture to Benidorm again and your family with receive a warm welcome from all our team.

Kindest Regards
