okay first of all we got a great deal, half board for about 20 euros a person each night (40 per night, we were a couple) and this included the sea view surcharge (atleast in low season they advertise an extra 10 euros a night). a lot of complaints but since we got such a good deal i feel i was extremely satisfied with this hotel. the location excellent in the old town, but on poniente beach, (the wild party clubs are on levante beach , on the other side but walkable in 10-15 minutes.) the old town was beautiful and quaint, and the ocean views from the room were amazing. benidorm is great! we went in winter january 25 2013 and we could easily walk around with jeans a shirt, in the evening chilly but much better than the cold european winter. the hotel itself definitely needs a face lift , the room need new furniture and the beds were uncomfortable and in general you could tell the facilities were very used but they had tried to update it in a general sense, new paint, and by adding some art on the rooms but i think they should buy some new ikea furniture and it would win A LOT. but it was clean and basic and spacious and the doors needed to be renewed, they were very flimsy, but as i keep on mentioning the sea view was worth everything. also there should be a stairway because the elevators were always packed and it was a hassle to get down. and the food was not bad especially for the price we paid. it was not a huge buffet but more than enough, you do have to pay for drinks but reasonably priced and you could even buy a big bottle of water and they keep it for you for the next couple of nights if you do not finish it. i enjoyed the dinner lunch and breakfast. it always had something i liked. the staff was friendly and helpful. i would recommend this hotel especially for the price i got!
