“Very good hotel”
Reviewed May 22, 2014 via mobile

Stayed here as a base for our golf trip and really enjoyed the stay.
Food is very good with great amenities. The pool was not crowded and beds ready available.
Lots of Spanish people stay here which is a good indicator of what to expect. A very non rowdy place

Stayed April 2014, traveled with friends

Stayed here yet again on 10th to 17th May.Still as great as all the other times we have stayed.Reception staff,bar staff,chefs,cleaners and Management are so helpful and friendly.Take the time to speak to them you will not find a better staffed hotel in Benidorm.They will treat you as family.Management are constantly checking everything out in and around the hotel.Senor Escabar,Raul and Estaban are always willing to help and advise.Food is always good,choice of different fish,meats and stews at every meal time.Sirloin steaks cooked to your liking if you ask them.Salad bar has everything,desserts are my fave ;).Breakfasts are excellent cava if you wish every morning.
Raul sat and had a coffee with us one evening he loves a giggle dont you Raul ? i have one thing to say to you though COSTA BECKHAM ;) Missing each and everyone of you already.Fingers crossed we will be back soon.Aspecial mention has to also go to the bar staff.They are a credit to the hotel always make us feel so welcome as do all the staff xxx

Stayed at this property for a long weekend (a birthday do with a group of friends). Ultimately Benidorm is what it is, but the hotel was good. I had a deluxe room that was reasonable priced and well appointed with sea views (well you could see the sea via the other high rise buildings) on 15th floor. The reception staff were good and helpful and the staff behind the bars (Jorge and the others) were very good and made us feel extremely welcome.

The hotel is a little bit away from the beach and old town, but a taxi rank is close by. The pool area was pleasant and clean and there was an indoor pool and spa.

I have been to Benidorm before (admittedly for boys weekends/stag parties) and this is the best hotel I have used thus far.

The breakfast was the usual set up and some of the fried offerings weren't great (sausages and hash browns), but others such as omelets, fresh fruit and Cava (always a nice touch) were spot on.

Overall I would recommend.

Room Tip: High floor deluxe or superior

Not the first time I have stayed at the Sol Melia, and will not be the last. A quality establishment. The rooms, the social areas and the food and drink are of an excellent standard. Close enough to the mayhem of The Strip, distant enough to not even know its there.

As ever another great trip to Beni, with the Sol Melia as a "HOME"

We stayed at the Melia Benidorm for a long weekend at the end of March with friends and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. From the moment we arrived in reception to check in, Jose couldn't do enough for us. It would appear that although we were on one booking our rooms were on different floors so after a few minutes phoning round housekeeping we found ourselves with rooms on the third floor (302 and 310) overlooking the pool and grounds. We stayed on the half board option.

The hotel is ideally situated a 10-15 minute walk from the main hustle and bustle of Benidorm so we weren't troubled by late night (or early morning!) noise. The rooms were lovely and spacious and very clean. Decoration was good both in the rooms and all the public areas. The reception area was particularly nice and I liked the relaxing seating area between the ground floor terrace bar and reception.

The restaurant was very good with large selection of hot and cold food, plus meat and fish cooked to order. Plenty of choice and a good quality so I see no reason for complaints. The waiting staff were very friendly and cleared away dirty plates promptly.

Following a short stroll after dinner on our first night we spent the rest of the evening in the entertainment bar watching a couple of very good professional dancers followed by a solo singer. We booked the show at the Benidorm Palace the following night and stayed in central Benidorm town for our last night - it was fun, you must try it! There wasn't a great deal of entertainment within the hotel but considering it was the end of March we didn't honestly expect much, and certainly didn't expect day time entertainment. The pool looked lovely but was obviously far to cold for us and we never did find time to use the indoor pool or spa, which again, looked immaculately maintained.

Benidorm was a great destination and a walk to the 'old town' is a must. You would think you were in another resort. The beaches are beautiful but I expect they are extremely crowded during the summer. Overall we really enjoyed our short stay in Benidorm and would definitely go again for a short break, probably April or October when it's a bit warmer. And yes, we did see some filming of "Benidorm" at the Neptune Bar (we even had a drink in Neptune's on our last night) and several cast member were staying at the Melia when we were there

Arrived back on Saturday. One of the nicest Hotels I have stayed in. Food very good, staff are exceptionally nice, Lovely pool and surrounding area. If you want to find the loud bars and beach its about 10 mins walk, but this Hotel seems to be detached from it all, which was great for us, you can always find loud music but peace and quiet is harder to find, and we found it here.
