This was my first visit to Benidorm, and I had heard lots of (negative) stories about the place and to be honest I wasn't really looking forward to it but went to support my son's football team who were playing there in a tournament. I'm so glad I did! We stayed at the Melia Benidorm for a week; what a lovely hotel. it was spacious, clean, well staffed, the food (we had breakfast there daily) was plentiful and lovely. Plenty of sun loungers, at the time the main pool was out of action but this wasn't a problem for me as I don't swim. Rooms were very comfortable, air conditioned with a nice balcony that had a great view.
We signed up for the Rewards (free) which meant we got free wifi access in our room too, which was really handy for keeping in touch with family at home as it meant we could chat via Facebook rather than expensive texting all the time.
Good location, just a ten minute walk to the shore front, far enough away from the trashy bits of Benidorm that they can be avoided but close enough that they can be enjoyed if that's your kind of thing.
There's a couple of handy shops across the road for stocking up on drinks and snacks for the room (there's a fridge), and plenty of restaurants and pubs with reasonable prices around the area.
