Had 5 nights in the Venus Hotel 26th March, returning to the U.K on 31st March. Chose this hotel after reading good reviews, and researching its location.
This is our 6th time in Benidorm- normally booking nothing less than 4 star- this occasion thought we would gamble and book 3 star. The gamble payed off well and truly. Its not a high rise hotel-9 floors, this suited my other half as he is abit phobic when it comes to heights. We were allocated 2nd floor overlooking the pool. ideal with a nice sized balcony. Also meant that we could use the stairs instead of the very adequate lift, inorder to make sure we got exercise after/before our meals.
The hotel is spotless, lots of mirrored pillers, so clean and fresh and bright. Staff and customers alike all friendly.
in the restaurant faultless-(breakfast and evening meal) lots of choice- nobody need go hungry. Wine with the meal was served by a very pleasant somelier, and the price was very reasonable too, prices started at 7 euros and the dearest bottle was only around 17 euros.
Our room was as good as any 4 star hotel- and better! How nice to have many English channels on the wide screen TV, fridge, plenty of hangers in the wardrobe, power point next to the big mirror- which is alot of cases in hotels is situated on a wall nowhere near a mirror. Bathroom was nice and compact, clean white soft towels, hot and cold running water.Sachets of shampoo's , soaps, shower gels.
Evening entertainment was nice and varied. Quiz night, Bingo, singers, duos. Great!
Drinks were excellent value for money, and once we had eaten our evening meal we were happy to go the the bar and watch the entertainment and enjoy a few drinks, there was no need for us to leave the hotel. Great service by the waiters too, they work very hard and so pleasant with it.
Only downside of this hotel was the hard bed and the fact that heavy blankets are still used- which is a little bit dated in these days of duvets. Not too keen on the long pillow either, single pillows would have been better.
On saying this, the bedding was clean and fresh.
I will certainly recommend this hotel to whoever is coming to Benidorm, be it fam, friends or whoever reads this review. And i for one will certainly be booking the Venus again in the future.
