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.

Just back from twelve nights at the Melia Benidorm. Booked directly with the Hotel on an All Inclusive basis, booked Vueling Flights from Cardiff and transfers with Travel Republic. Excellent service received from each provider. Almost all of the holiday (12th to 24th April) was hot and sunny with temperatures in the 70's. We have always enjoyed the food at the Melia but this year the food seemed even better in terms of both choice and quality. The staff without exception, in the bars and restaurant are the friendliest we have met in any holiday hotel. Staff turnover seems very low over the years so they must be happy in their work which impacts upon the service they provide. Esteban, the Deputy Manager is regularly 'walking the job', chatting to guests and staff to ensure that everything is ok. As I think I have said in previous reviews, the pool area at the Melia is especially appealing with plenty of sun loungers and quiet areas if that is your preference. Many Spanish people stay at the Melia which I think says a lot about its' reputation. It's not a typical Benidorm hotel with the wide range of activities and entertainment that some British families seek. It's a very comfortable, relatively calm Hotel in a convenient and relatively quiet location. We shall certainly return there as it suits our needs exceptionally well. Many thanks to Esteban and all the staff.

We are still here, but we just wanted to say we are delighted with this beautiful hotel, its staff & facilities. We got married in uk on 18th April & it is Ians Birthday today. We came back to our room last night to find a lovely bottle of excellent Cava in an ice bucket with a best wished card from the Manager! How sweet is that? Really enjoying our stay, food is wonderful with good choices and well presented. Cant fault anything so far . Thank you Melia Hotel Benidorm.

Highly recommend this hotel. Stayed during easter holidays. Choice of food was very good. Staff very quick to clear up and prepare new settings. Very clean hotel. A 10/15 min walk to beach but who needs a beach with such a pleasant pool area. Stayed on 4th floor, not sure if I'd like to be on the 20th floor.

The hotel is nice and clean and in a nice location. Overall the food was quite good, juicy steaks, gammon, chops, but the food in the Italian corner was often cold. The entertainment is dreadful. A pianist playing non stop every night in the main lounge. The other bars either had no entertainment or a magician which was more suited to a kids club
