Stayed here for a week during the Easter Break, a group of 7 of us.On arrival we checked in quickly and efficiently with a friendly receptionist. Our rooms were clean and we were allocated a room on the 4th floor overlooking the front of the hotel as requested. We went on All Inclusive Basis and the food was excellent, a selection of hot meals and salads etc and the desserts were nice too, always plenty of choice. The drinks were very good too, a selection of local spirits and beers, wines and soft drinks.

I cannot speak more highly about the Entertainment team, they really made our holiday brilliant!! Jose, Lucas, David (Dino), Melissa, Ruth & David were absolutley amazing! I had my daughter who was 6 years old with me and she had such an amazing time with them in the kids club and mini discos! She didn't want to leave. They made such a fuss of all the children and did so many games and activities with all the children. We joined in the adults games during the day and had such a laugh with the entertainers, Jose, David and Lucas :))

The Bar staff were really friendly especially Miguel who made us laugh alot :) The pools and surrounding areas of the hotel are immaculate. The Hotel is central to everything, shops, beach, pubs and Clubs! We had such an amazing time and would definately reccommend to family and friends and we hope to return this summer.

The lobby had a smell , that was not good. I was woke ever morning by the work going on in the Ocas and kept awake by loud music in the rooms above for three nights on the trot. The food was good if a little cold. Staff helpful, room clean, third bed in room was a terrible, a put you up, with a slat missing, asked if it could be changed no joy.

went mid-week till sunday on a B&B basis. Fabulous pool ( used by the benidorm itv series),plenty of sunloungers and majority in the sun so not covered by the other skyscrapers. all you can eat buffet brekkie, with everything from cooked to fruit bowls, gorgeous !!! Rooms clean, comfortable and do the job. Expect noise over a week-end when most of the stag & hens come to town. Great location.

Room Tip: ask for a room overlooking pool as the other side is facing a building site ( hotel renovation) so c...

We booked an all inclusive week at the hotel, and I can honestly say we found no faults with it whatsoever, well maybe a little one, the Walls are paper thin and you hear things that maybe you dont want to haha!!!
The food was absolutely massive, from breakfast right through to dinner, the Maitre de Juan is just the loveliest person. Alcohol on tap brilliant.
From the inside to the pool areas are immaculate, staff are friendly, especially the guy that does the entertainment, he is just hilarious. I would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends, and will most definitely be going back.
The location is also central to all the entertainment, and a short walk to the beach.
I personally can't recommend it highly enough.

Room Tip: We requested a lower level room with a pool view a were accommodated with this.

just got back from a stag do at this hotel. the hotel itself is very nice, quite upmarket in a way, clean with freindly staff.rooms are pleasant although beds are very firm,with paper thin walls, youre not going to get a good nights sleep because people were coming in at all hours myself included !!! we went all inclusive and would be advised as the bar prices were high. the food was reasonable with a decent selection although you do get a tad fed up with it after a few days !! all in all decent value for money. the entertainment on an evening was old fashioned with bingo and felt like you were in a time warp from 1970!!!! tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree etc...etc...
the main problem with this hotel was the area, although very close to the bars and clubs,which were varied and plenty it felt like beruit at times !!!! one of our party was mugged at knifepoint by 2 gypsy women and a man, another of our party was surrounded by 8 or more of these scumbags trying to steal his jewellery !!!! this put everybody on edge as this was only the first night !!!!! its a shame because most people in the clubs and bars were having a good time and we didnt se lots of fighting etc considering the amount of people about !!!! so all in all a good place for stags and hen partys , but couples and families beware !!!! so summing up, a decent enough hotel, in a rough area !!! a real shame because if the spanish police dont sort this mugging out then the tourists will stop going altogether !!!! i would never go back for a holiday here and thats not the hotels fault. i hope you find this review helpful !!!!

Room Tip: pool view are better because they are working on the sister hotel !!! vey noisey and eyesore until f...
