The Bayblon is proof that you CAN make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. Tony and his team have produced an excellent little intimate and infinitely welcoming hotel out of something that until Tony took over had a fearsome reputation.
The rooms are good sized and spotless, the menu is excellent and VERY reasonably priced. The quality of the food and presentation are excellent. As an ex Hotel Inspector, I can honestly say that this one really comes out tops for value for money, location, service and the kindest welcome you are ever likely to receive anywhere.
Other reviewers have mentioned the roof garden - it is sheltered, beautifully and lovingly kept, and a real oasis of relaxation in the heart of Bendiorm Old Town.
The staff are totally accepting of people with alternative lifestyles. Nothing is too much trouble.
In short, probably the best overall value and service in Benidorm. Oh, and if you need to know the weather forecast, ask Kai, one of the ladies - she'll talk to the seagulls for you, and she is ALWAYS right. So don't just think about booking - do it, and find out what a welcome really is.
