The Manager gave us another room and from discussions around the pool, the hotel often puts English guests in what can only be described as box rooms. Only if you complain do you get a move to a room with a balcony. The Manager actually stated, if guests want a balcony, they 'come to me and ask for one!' Why he thinks anyone going on holiday would want a pokey old room with no natural light is beyond me.

The hotel WiFi doesn't work on the 5th floor where our room is and it's turned off after 11pm. The air-conditioning in the rooms is turned off from 8 am till 1pm.
At least the cleaning staff have manners as well as one young man on the reception.
It's a shame as the hotels in a good location and food is good for the full board price I paid.

Hotel tip: If booking here ask for a room overlooking the pool and be prepared for rude staff!
The pool is useless for kids as it was far too deep & also very small. The desk staff were ok, the food was the worst I have ever eaten, totally disgusting and tasteless with no variety, was repetitive and burnt. 2 consecutive nights there were little fish complete with eyes or veal, I couldn't eat either so opted for veggie option, pasta with tomato sauce, I may well have eaten cardboard. I am not a fussy person with food, I can eat or try most things but this was beyond me, I would have been embarrassed had I been the chef!
One was amused when I asked what the little black things were, they were cremated sausage. I have never ever been in any hotel with this quality of disgusting food on offer. We had paid Full Board as well.
I would strongly advise anyone to avoid this hotel, take heed of this review as it is totally accurate. I will return to Benidorm each year but have learned a lesson to make sure I research the hotel before I book in future. This hotel is a complete no go. Visit at your own risk! There was no entertainment unless your Spanish, in fact there's nothing including respect unless your Spanish! This hotel shouldn't even be given 1 star.

Hotel tip: Avoid!
We stayed half board, the Restaurant was clean and roomy, Breakfast consisted of eggs bacon (Spanish Style) beans, cereal, "warm puri milk" "warm very sweet juices", had a double toaster which was handy, coffee machine, tea bags, marmalade etc, quite good really!
Dinner was catered predominately for the Spanish Clients, lots of fish, salad, bread, cakes fresh fruit, fried potatoes, not my cup of tea but acceptable, You could buy a bottle of wine for 3 Euros which was quite good.
The Pool and Garden area was shaded most of the day, but this suited us, because we spent most of the days walking in the town and sunbathing on the beach the temperature was in the 30s so it was nice to return to a nice cool pool and cool area; the pool was cleaned every day and was very clean.
This Hotel was mainly occupied by elderly Spanish clientele, I unfortunately have to say who where not at all friendly towards our English Party, unfriendly, sometimes very rude, impolite, and arrogant.
Now!....Apart from the Cleaners, and the Lady who wore spectacles on Reception the Management Staff seemed very unfriendly and sometimes hostile towards our English Party, Why? we don't know, but we got the distinct impression that this was a Spanish Hotel and the English where not welcome even though they accept English bookings and the money spent in the Hotel.
I have to point out the "Spanish Lady Bar Tender", was a most unpleasant, unfriendly, arrogant person we had ever come across, she would always give priority to the Spanish/Italian Guests, and kept us English waiting and last to be served. The Bar closed at 12 midnight on the dot the lights where dimmed at this time, we where told in no uncertain terms to finish our drinks and leave the Pool/ garden because it was going to be locked up, not what we expected on a Spanish Holiday!
When it was time to check out nobody from the management asked if we had enjoyed our stay and not a thank you or good bye.
Finally Hotel Camposol was in very good location 5/10 minutes walk to the Old Main Town, Beach and Restaurants, we all enjoyed our Holiday and Benidorm, we would all go back, but not to Hotel Composol.
location was ok situated in the old town and 5 minute walk from the beach, not good if you want to spend most of your time in the new town because its quite a walk. also you go up a hill to get to the hotel so not so good for the disabled!
the hotel was very clean, maid service daily, clean towels etc. there was a slight smell at night on the corridoor but you could never smell it in the room.
the food was ok, im such a fussy eater so it wasnt really any good for me, breakfast was eggs, bacon, toast, beans n continental etc. and the main meals was choices of salads, fish and meat, i have to add it was chips with everything!!!!!
hotel staff didnt speak much english but were ok, the hotel certainly caters more for the spanish!!
all in all you get what you pay for, if you want a cheap holiday go here!!

In the event, I found that I had absolutely nothing to complain about. The room was spotless. The food was hot, plentiful, and there was a lot of choice. In the time that I was there, there was no repetition of main courses, either fish or meat. If you were a vegetarian, there was enough salad to fill yourself up with.
The staff were helpful and efficient. With very little Spanish and a smile I managed to communicate very well. There was not a lot of entertainment, but as it was November, I did not expect any. The Spanish football was interesting to watch on television, and made a change from the constant diet of Manchester United or Chelsea!

BED & BREADFAST- not worth the money, thought it was strange on the first day when no english people were eating in there..... it was awful and we didnt go back. Rude staff, little choice, poor quality food and generally not pleasant.
The pool was not used once by anyone while we were there as it is constantly in the shade and can be swam in about 3 stokes. English people are not welcome in the bar downstairs as spanish take it over and make you feel extremly unwelcome.
However the location is great for beaches, shopping and nighlife!
