The location was great and I had a sea view. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Visiting the beaches either side of the hotel is a must. They are very clean and lovely water.

You couldn't fault the food there was something for every 1.
The location not that bad but wouldn't recommend it to any one who's not to good on their feet. I would defo go again.

The room was quite big with a great view and balcony. We thought the food was of a good standard with lots of choice and we had no problems with the temperature.
As our holiday was self booked we got a real bargain and had a lovely time. We plan to return!

It's location at the Poniente end of Benidorm, in the small resort of La Cala, is on a hill, so people with walking dificulties might have problems.
La Cala is a quiet place and the few bars and cafes are welcoming and suitable for people who enjoy a quiet coffee.
The local bus service into Benidorm is cheap and the service into town runs about every 15 minutes. A stroll along the front into Benidorm usually took us about 50 minutes.
The weather was'nt very kind to us and it was cold and cloudy for most of the 10 nights we were there.
About the standards of the food in the hotel. This is our second stay at this hotel. We were there for 7 nights in March 2004. We were so impressed with its overall standards and particularly the food, that this year we chose to return and we booked everything ourselves. In fact our choice to do this meant we were able to have 10 nights stay for what a tour operator was charging for 7, so that was a big bonus.
In 2004, every evening the chef laid on an international buffet as well as the standard buffets. The choice was unbeatable. In fact one evening there was a Russian buffet, and the food was served with caviar. So we just had to go back as it was the best value for money hotel we had ever stayed at in Benidorm. Unfortunately, as I have written elsewhere, and we are not moaners, we are far from it, the food this time was very disappointing. We thought it was tasteless and quite bland. Granted it was possible to eat as much as we wanted, but nevertheless it did not compare with last years quality.
These were comments which were shared by our fellow guests many of whom had stayed here previously. It's a shame because it had everything else going for it.
Elsewhere I have written that I would not return here I have written "yes" but with ??? We will have to think about it and see what others write in their reviews.

The food is highly recommended but was awful! This is not just our opinion as everyone we spoke to said the same. Hot meals were lukewarm. The choice was poor and if you didn't like chips you were in big trouble (including the chips for breakfast!).
The weather was poor which obviously the hotel can't do anything about but the "entertainment" in the hotel was none existent for anyone under 70.
Our room whilst clean was extremely cold even with the radiator on full and keeping the room warm was impossible as the maid left the patio doors open each day!
My main complaint was the staff and Thomson
