“Great Golf Break”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

I have just returned from a 3 night stay here with a group of 20 friends.

I thought the hotel and golf course were excellent. I enjoyed the shorter course more than the longer course but only because it suited my game more. Both courses are very well maintained - maybe the bunkers could do with a little more sand but apart from that they were very good.

Not all of the group played golf so the others spent the day lazing around the pool - we we're lucky to have such fantastic weather for the first weekend in April.

The breakfast was very good as we're the bar snacks. We didn't eat an evening meal, so can't comment on that.

Good size rooms - enough room for two and 2 sets of clubs easily.

The only couple of points I could make is that there are no Iron and Ironing boards - we popped into town to purchase one... The bar staff can also get some what distracted at times and take a while to serve you.. may be more of a problem during the busy periods.

Overall it was excellent and we are already planning a return trip in 2016.

Many Thanks

Spoiled now!! Got upgraded to 5 star 'The Level' so my party of 6 were over the moon. Javier was very helpful and friendly. The Clubhouse is the place to eat and have a drink after the golf, the staff couldn't be better. Say Hi to Dave the starter for us, what a guy. Booked via. Golfbreaks and can't wait for next year's trip

Stayed with 4 friends just for one night at the end of March. This hotel, is really impressive and huge, laid out like a Spanish village, 5 swimming pools, two golf courses. We were up graded to a superior room, very impressive, huge double bed, walk-in wardrobe. This stay was very much "out of season" and that limited some of the facilities but them again we only paid 65.00 Euros per couple. Breakfast (included) was fabulous. I would recommend it for a short break in the winter or a longer stay in the summer. Staff were very good. Could be very noisy in the summer as the hotel caters for nearly 900 people. Cannot rave about the place, but we would go back.

Room Tip: Upper level rooms have the best view

We found the design of the hotel absolutely stunning, built in a village style, although it did involve a certain amount of walking between some of the facilities. The main swimming pool is the biggest hotel pool I have seen and was one of four. Due to the season not all of the restaurants were open but we used the Trattoria which was Italian food with a good selection and excellent service at a reasonable price. Only one bar was open which was unfortunate as the music being played was not every ones choice and despite requests to turn it down it seemed to gradually creep up again. In the summer there would be several other bar facilities available both inside and out. The staff were very courteous and there is the added benefit of an eighteen hole golf course to those interested. The buffet style breakfast included in our package was very good if somewhat slow due to numbers for those who wanted freshly fried eggs or omelets. The rooms were of a very good standard, clean and spacious with complimentary water and soft drinks in the refrigerator.

Played 4 courses in the Alicante area this was by far the best of them. The facilities, greens, tees and fairways were all in good nick. They are not as well manicured as the best in Europe but very good value for money. If you can only play one course in Benidorm / Alicante play this one.

Its been a very long time since I last travelled to Benidorm - Arrived at this massive hotel complex - it is clean, comfortable and the staff are friendly. Its a great place for a business conference but not entirely sure I would want to be here on holiday. You can walk miles through corridors to get to reception, there is no tea/coffe in the rooms which is fairly typical for Spain - what I dont understand is why they do not offer irons/boards in the rooms. With 600 people in our group here and 4 coffee machines in the restuarant you have to que sometime before getting a cup of coffee - if you can afford the time to wait long enough it is reasonable coffee. The breakfast lacks cereal and porridge, more healthy options. For business conference it has great advantages of large converence rooms facilities and there is an onsite spa and nice pool complex. For me not a place I will bring the family lacks charm, too big and not near enough to the beach.

Room Tip: One bed suits are nice room 5056 is OK clean, bed comfortable, sunny and quiet

Dear Jmhandley,
Thank you for taking the time to report your experience after your recent visit because of a meeting that took place in march.
We would like to point out that in superior rooms we have available tea and coffee facilities in room. Also it is important to clarify that in our breakfast buffet, the coffee or drinks are served by our staff; for those who prefer an expresso we give the option of the coffee machine that you refer.
Hoping that we have the chance to receive your visit again very soon, thank you one more time for sharing your impressions.
