“Can't wait to go back!!!!!”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

This is the best hotel i have stayed in Benidorm.
I can't fault it except for the lights being turned off at 12 midnight once the all inclusive bars have closed. Met some fantastic people & we carried on with our chat in the dark regardless!
We were on the select silver club holiday & it was great. I won't go on too much as previous reviews have covered it. The main pluses for this upgrade are mini-bar in the room,robes, free spa, private bar (self-service) with snacks, tv,daily newspapers & 15% off further spa visits.
There was internet access being set-up during our stay, but didn't get to use it.
Whatever we asked for we got! (provided they supplied it) Bombay Sapphire was most popular!!!

Rooms spotless with 2 double comfy beds, hairdryer, kettle & loads of toiletries in the room(incl a toothbrush). The maid cleaned our room later on which suited us.Sheets were changed during our 1 week stay & towels on request.
Restaurant - spoiled for choice! Different food every day. Show cooking - loved it. chef cooked on request. Waiters very polite & courteous.
Bar Staff - again can't fault. For the guests who did fault, just remember the shifts these guys work. Also i didnt tip until the last day & found they didn't treat me any different.
The pool area - very clean & tidy with plenty comfy loungers. Yes the pool was cold but it definately wakes you up! You can also hire beach towels for 10euro each which when returned to reception are laundered daily.
Entertainment - this was poor but as i said earlier we met really good company & spent the majority of our time in the select lounge having a laugh.

Big thanks to guests Janet & Barry who helped us out on our last day!!!! Stars!

In summary this hotel is in a great location, in the middle of the old & new town. Its very quiet at night & yet close enough to entertainment. Its adults only & has a mixed clientele.
Definately be back......soon!

Room Tip: We stayed in rm 213 which gets the sun all day but can be noisy as it directly above the terrace. Hi...

Hotel is in a great location, 5 mins walk from beach and close to the old town.

Great choice of hot and cold food each day, with wine and beer on self-service at lunch and evening meals.

Good sized room, with comfortable beds. Towels for the pool can be obtained from reception, a 10 Euro refundable deposit is given at the time. Towels can be changed each day.

Did not upgrade to select all inclusive, felt that the standard all inclusive gave you everything you needed.

Found all the staff to be friendly and polite, especially the bar staff.

Recommended hotel for a chill holiday in the sun, minus the kids!

This hotel is superb in every way except for the evening entertainment which seems to be an after thought.
The spa is excellent and has one of the best Turkish baths I have had. The select room upgrade they have introduced this year is a great idea but I do agree with previous posts that an attached patio area would be a good addition to the lounge.
If you are looking for an excellent, clean, quiet hotel with good fresh food everyday then you will not be disappointed.

We stayed here for a relaxing week and it was the perfect place for it. It was great for people who appreciate a bit of peace and quiet as it is adult only. The room and bathroom were both clean and new looking. Situated in the Spanish side of town but within walking distance of the 'British Square' and the lively pubs and clubs. Close to the beach as well. My only complaint would be the noise of the maids dragging the beds across the tile floor while trying to have a lie-in or afternoon nap, it was so loud and went on for so long!

Just returned from our 2nd visit to the Sandos this year and glad we were able to say goodbye to the lifeguard as it was his last day for the summer. He is an asset to the hotel and look forward to seeing him again when we come for 2 weeks in July! Raquel was also amazing. As for the bar staff- they're brilliant! Always happy, singing and dancing behind the bar. Moon is so funny I wanted to bring him home in my suitcase! I cant understand why anyone moans about the bar staff. Food fantastic-loving the new select lounge! Visited the spa this time, was well worth it. Rooms spotless. Restaurant staff were good at their job but a special mention to Natascha who looked after us-very professional. All in all we had a fantastic time with Sharon and Richie once again! See you all next year!
