Vidamar is a relatively new hotel and has all of the benefits of this in being spotlessly clean with staff eager to please. The location is perfect- five minute walk to the beach which was not over crowded unlike other nearby beaches. The children's club is well run- good signing in and out policy and the kids are well entertained by the lovely energetic staff. The three pools provide the something for everyone - one warm, one very shallow for little children and one cold and deep and long for water polo and other games. Evening entertainment is very much focused on the children which suited us but anyone seeking nightlife can take a ten-fifteen minute taxi ride to Albuferia. The food was varied, well cooked and well presented with a buffet system or a choice of three other restaurants on site. Our only complaint was that the bedrooms and bathrooms are virtually open plan - a dividing wall between bedroom and bathroom with shower cubicle and toilet cubicle. I can see why some reviewers are disputing the five star status but if you want a holiday in clean accommodation, comfortable bed, excellent shower power, good food and great staff for good value then this is the one to book. Perfect for families with young children and teenagers. The modern interiors and facade maybe a little sterile but really the sea view and the facilities make up for it.
