My mum and I came to benidorm as a very last minute short break to get some sun in October half term. Booked hotel babylon because of reviews and price and very pleasantly surprised. Really friendly hotel,Karen was great and everybody chatted in the bar felt a bit like a family. The room was nice had everything you needed, the ensuite shower was a bit small but fine. Loved the roof top bar very relaxing and the hotel was in a fantastic location for beach and shops. We honestly didn't see how they could be making money on the room as we got half board with breakfast and dinner included,v generous portions and good food,especially lovely breakfast. Never been to benidorm before and we're a bit apprehensive it would be like the programme but had a lovely time, as Babylon is in the old town it wasn't in a commercial touristy area and had a nice feel to it. We would definitely go again. Try to see a cabaret show and go to Altea on the train,a lovely white walled Spanish town. I've never left a review before but felt compelled to because of our great experience,thank you to all the staff at hotel babylon.
