The hotel was lovely, clean and had a jacuzzi and HEATED indoor pool. That was one of the reasons I chose it, along with the fact that it's popular with the Spanish. I'm vegetarian, and although the Spanish don't really get vegetarianism, there was always plenty for me to eat. The food was plentiful and well prepared although fellow veggies should realise that often soup is cooked with fish stock (you can tell if this is the case by the smell). The staff were very friendly and helpful, even when faced with gormless guests wondering about the dining room like 'farts in trances' as my dad would put it.
The rooms were small but more than adequate. We were on the top floor and had a great view of the town from our balcony. The beds were very comfortable although they only have one (thin) pillow; you can get an extra pillow from reception if you want one.
The outdoor area was lovely although because this area of Benidorm is full of tall buildings, it was in shade by the afternoon. There was live music in the bar every night with Jim Vives. I especially enjoyed his set with the girl on the congas; they were obviously having a great time! There was also a bingo evening which was good fun, especially for my goddaughter, who won! We also saw Flamenco dancers - they were amazing!
The animation team were very friendly and welcoming. We stayed over Christmas and had a great time, along with the Spanish and English pensioners, and the Belgian families. Many guests seemed to be regulars, so obviously they like the place too! It was like a big family Christmas!
