I really enjoyed my stay in this hotel. I was visiting Benidorm for the weekend and (like many others) I trusted TripAdvisor reviews - and again they were spot on ! What a great hotel - friendly and helpful staff and guests. You would be hard pushed to walk from your room to breakfast without a cheery good morning from someone along the way. Room (407) was just the right size, with balcony and bathroom. All modern and comfortable.
A word of warning though is that this hotel advertises that it has "double" rooms but this is not strictly true. For us in UK,, we'd call them "twin" rooms (two single beds pushed together). I was on my own, so wasn't a big deal for me in the end (even though I booked a double room) and the bed was definitely comfy.
Bathroom has a great selection of toiletries and shower is big and refreshing. There is also a fridge in the room for keeping things (water etc) nice and cool.
I was on full board (which doesn't include drinks) and the food was good with a great selection to choose from. Nothing to complain about here at all.
The location of the hotel is very near bars and clubs but you can't really hear anything from the room - I slept with the patio doors wide open to allow a cool breeze to circulate (as the A/c wasn't working).
I rated this hotel 5 stars as I really enjoyed my stay - yes there were some niggles (as mentioned above) but I think the mark of a great hotel is that these did not ruin my stay at all !
PS If you pre-book a bus transfer from the airport, be warned that many of the operators align buses to several flights, so you may end up like me who landed at 8.30pm but didn't get to the hotel until 11.30pm !!!! The reason was that my flight arrived 30 mins early and they allow 30 mins to collect your suitcase (I didn't have one). Then we had to wait for other flights to arrive. Very annoying - but not the fault of the hotel at all. There is a public bus for 8 euros which leaves every hour - would have been a better option for me. The return trip on the bus was brilliant though as they pick you up from outside and this is very convenient.
