We found getting into our hotel stressful, we finally got to benidorm at about 11pm at night, the shuttle bus dropped us off and couldn't explain to us what way to go to find out hotel, so me and two friends in our early twenties were left to wonder the streets to look for our hotel, there was no one around to ask either, after about 45 mins searching we find that our hotel doesn't have a reception. soooo... after reading a plaque outside our hotel with instructions we had to get in a taxi which cost 10euro return to a 24hr reception hotel (the buenavista) to pick up ours keys! where we then got asked for a 100euro deposit!!! you get one key even though there was 3 of us staying there. to return the key there is either an office on the sea front (fincas benidorm) or you return them to the hotel you picked them up from (another 10euro cab), we only found out about the office on the sea front through word of mouth around the pool. there was word of a 25euro cleaning charge when you drop off your keys but nothing like that was mentioned to us.
this was a budget holiday for us, we only had a budget on spending money, and after being in benidorm an hour it had eaten a chunk into that.
you need a key to get into the pool, so having one key between 3 of us got difficult and annoying.
We should of paid a little more to stay in a proper hotel, so it was less stressful, you get what you pay for i suppose.
on the other hand... the hotel room.
you couldn't fault the room, yes they are basic, but clean, you get a hob, big fridge, washing machine, clothes horse, payable TV, two sofas, hangers, two wardrobes. only down fall was we had one small bathroom mirror between 3 girls, so it was window reflections and the lift mirrors for us lol.
with out the stress of travelling to other hotels to get keys in the middle of the night and deposits i would stay here again, its in a good location being right near the beach, english cafe, supermarket and 10min walk to the bars/clubs.
