However, the food has dropped in standard both in quality and variety! This was an important issue for us as we had booked to stay over the Christmas and New Year period.
On a previous Christmas holiday, the food was much better and more enjoyable!

Hotel was very clean and cleaners couldnt be any nicer . Our room was spot on and we had asked for extra pillows and got them in less than 5 minute fantastic beds a bit hard .
Location was fantastic everything you needed was at your finger tips 2 mins to the beach bars shops etc on your door step
Staff are very nice cant fault any of them at all .
Entertainment well not for us as the last post said more for older couples but we dont stay in hotel for entertainment to much going on out and about .
Yes i would return to this hotel again if the price was right cant fault it in any way .

we did not stay in for entertainment as it looked more geared for older people.

We were in room 909 on the 9th floor. We faced the front of the hotel, friends were in room 810 and were more on the side of the hotel. Our room was larger than our friends and we also had a larger balcony. However, our balcony was Perspex which made you feel a little dizzy as there was nothing to break up your eye view. Our friends’ balcony had bars which made the height not seem so severe.
The rooms were clean and had a handy free fridge. LCD large TV on the wall. (Friends bathroom was quite squashed with the toilet practically on top of the bath) Our bathroom was a little better laid out and larger.
We were full board and the food was excellent. Breakfast was the usual cold ham/cheeses etc with plenty of choice for a cooked breakfast. The sausage was really nice (British style.) The chef was available to cook you freshly fried eggs to your liking.
Lunch was excellent with chef's cooking, ie chops, chicken kebabs etc. More or less the same food as you get in hotels for an evening meal. We'd expected just beef burgers etc. so it was a nice surprise to have such a choice for lunch. The lemon ice cream from the machine was really quenching. Evening meals again were faultless - plenty of choice.
Entertainment wasn't really our cup of tea as it was mainly ballroom dancing type stuff, but we sat outside on the terrace for a few drinks and enjoyed watching all the older couples enjoying themselves.
The hotel attracts a lot of the older couples and so maintains a nice peaceful atmosphere. There's nothing there really for children apart from a small playground area with a slide etc. Definitely not a choice of hotel for the younger generation.
While we were there the hotel has a 2 for 1 drinks policy that is available all hours. This includes all drinks, plus tea and coffee/bottled water etc. 2 pints of lager therefore was just €2.30, 2 brandy and 2 lemonades were around €3.70, 2 bottles of water €1.20.
The pool area was fine with plenty of sunbeds plus tables and chairs and a bar area.
Across the road from the hotel is a large bar that has outside tables, it can be a little noisy at night until the music stops. The hotel is handy for the market and there's a few shops just outside the hotel without you having to cross the road.
We enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend it to older visitors for a peaceful, relaxing holiday.

location was superb. right on the doorsteps of all or favourite pubs. so needless to say we didnt stay in for the entertainment which did seem busy as it was ballroom dancing and as it was december there were mainly the older generation in benidorm. i would definately visit this hotel again but maybe not in december
