We have just spent a week at the Presidente and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Me and my husband had an adjacent room with our daughter and her partner.
The only downside was they were main road facing (no's 327/328) and could get very
noisy at night and into the early hours. The pub the Lochness opposite is extremely noisy and goes on until around 8am!! Therefore i would advise paying for a pool view room (if available..which sadly for us they weren't) to ensure some good quality sleep.
(This costs 3euro pp per night).
The hotel itself is excellent. We were full board and couldnt fault the food. Lots of choice and very efficient. Shame though that beverages were payable at lunch and dinner as they were quite expensive and you couldnt take in your own.
The rooms were cleaned everyday and towels changed when required.
A fridge in the room would have been a bonus, and if like us you like a morning cuppa or two, then you should pack a travel kettle, irons are pricey to hire -so take one those too!
Safety deposit boxes are 20 euros for the week - with 5 refundable on return of key.- worth it for peace of mind though.
Its a short walk to Levante beach, and well worth a visit to the Old Town, which is quaint and very pretty.
This is our first visit to Benidorm and were pleasantly surprised how nice it is, especially after reading some reviews! Ok, so it is very commercialised in parts but it does cater for all ages.
We would definitley return, but wouldnt rule out self catering next time as there are so many reasonable places to eat out and lots of choice in cuisine.
But yes, i would definitley recommend the Presidente, especially if you want to right in the heart of things.
