Just returned from a week stay at the Regente. First impressions were not what we were expecting. Easiest way to review hotel is to state good and bad points.
Good points - Hotel staff are very friendly and polite. Rooms are clean, we got fresh towels every day. We booked a courtesy room on our last day before pick up for the airport at no cost. Children's entertainer Lucy did an amazing job of keeping the children occupied during the day, she couldnt have done any more. There are plenty of shops and quieter bars nearby and its in an ideal spot for mundamar and aqualandia. Drinks selection and snack bar are better than expected.
The surroundings around the hotel aren't great, the views from the balcony are of some flats/apartments straight opposite, you can practically see into each others rooms!, the other views are of the main road. We struggled with the food, very bland, not much choice and only just warm, never hot. First few days were terrible but the variety improved as the week went on.
The entertainment on an evening was terrible! I do not know where they get these acts from. so we walked into Benidorm a few times to see some of the shows there.
Although the rooms were clean, the beds were really uncomfy so you ended up with a stiff neck the next morning.
The pool area is a level down from reception, this is also where the evening entertainment is held- the steps getting there are steep! We witnessed an elderly lady fall down these one evening, they are so unsafe! Would not recommend for elderly people.
Overall we found it hard to keep our son entertained in this hotel, there was nothing for him to do on an evening, maybe this is due to the time of year, but the entertainment is mainly aimed at the more mature guests. Would not recommend this hotel for families which include children over the age of 4/5. All in all we had a nice time, the weather was excellent, the staff do their best but we would not go back.
