As other reviews have stated the politeness & manners of all the staff make a visit to this hotel a relatively pleasant experience and may account for the many repeat visits that are reflected in TripAdvisor reviews, however as mentioned in "lesley h" review this is in no way a 4* hotel. The décor of the 4* hotels in Benidorm is the minimum standard we would have expected in a Thomson Gold 4*, not the case here, the rooms are large and clean but very basic & dated, 21 euros for a safe 1 week ! air con that seemed to blow warm air at night ! old style tv with poor picture & channel choice & all at a cost of £1650.00 for two. The staff do their best, but service to the tables at night in the Monkey Bar can be slow to dead stop, why they do not encourage you to stand at the huge bar order, collect your drink, then sit baffles me, if you attract the attention of the bar staff then you will be served, if not be prepared to speak out or else you may go thirsty. Pool areas were large with plenty beds, very quite at the top pool, fun & games at the lower pool, entertainment in Monkey Bar hit or miss, cant comment on the Pavilion Tent where the main acts performed as we did not go in, (temp akin to a warm oven). The Crown Restaurant looks OK at night but during daylight hours the tired décor becomes apparent, food is quite good and plentiful. Walk 5/10 mins to the left on the promenade accessed from the back of hotel to the 4* Teguise Grand Hotel, go in for a look to see what 4* hotel should look like. Big plus is a very quick transfer from airport and nice quiet location with a few bars & restaurants "Dickens Bar" right hand side from front entrance is a cracking classy bar with class acts. In summary, my opinion only of course, the folks that come here year after year are either getting unbelievable deals or they need to get out more, if this is the standard for a Thomson Gold 4*, then our visit to the 5* Sandos San Blas, Tenerife, earlier this year (£400.00 cheaper) would be 7* or 8* with Thomson's. Not a bad overall experience, but definitely not what we expected for 4* Gold.
