Nice hotel with lovely see view.

Posted 26-Mar-2014
Pros: Comfortable beds, friendly staff & the food was freshly made with a wide selection to choose from.
Cons: Don't expect guest to stay next in a demolition site!!!! T.V channels in English(only had news)
Location: Great location. right in the middle of Poniente & Levante Beaches. The old town is fantastic with great views, tapas bar , restaurants & shops.
Stayed at The Hotel Cimbel for our annual February break. Chose this hotel because of where it is situated. As a couple in our 40's we like to have fun and get out but also want to stay in a more peaceful hotel away from the rowdiness you can get in Benidorm. Our first impressions were great & the room was nice, we had a good nights sleep on the very comfortable beds but then woke to find the room next door was being renovated. Not just a lick of paint......men with drills, drilling holes in our balcony side, hammering, shouting & when they were drilling, big clouds of swirling dust flying past our window & covering the balcony. We couldnt open the sliding doors to appreciate the sunny weather & of course that view (the reason we chose this particular hotel). I had hung my cardigan out to dry as i had a spillage of orange juice at breakfast, we went out walking for the day only to come back to everything covered in concrete dust...including my clothing. I went to reception to report this and expressed very calmly my upset, the young man was polite and explained that as it was Friday the workmen would not be working over the weekend and therefore we could have peace & quiet....!!!!! This was all well and good but why let guest stay in a room next to a demolition site in the first place. We work very hard & save to pay for our trips away and was so looking forward to a few days relaxation unfortunately we didnt get that at the Hotel Cimbel.!!!

Nice clean hotel, right on the beach

Posted 10-Feb-2014
We stayed here for a friends birthday, hotel staff were very helpful, we arrived early (there were 12 of us in our party) but we were able to check in immediately. The rooms were spacious and clean, we had a problem with our patio door but the staff sent someone up straight away to deal with this. Breakfast was ok with a good range of items on offer. We would definitely stay there again. Benidorm itself was very busy for this time of year (February), plenty of bars and restaurants to chose from.

Posted 26-Nov-2013
Pros: mainly the position and it looks lovely when you walk past every body admires it
Cons: nothing its ok as it is there doing a good job!
Location: location good in between the old town and the new ,on the beach near to all nightlife but quite if you want to be
I have stayed in many different hotel in Benidorm,this hotel was really the one I wanted to stop in ,I always used to walk past and think why didn't I book that again,to be honest I have always been carefull in choosing so I have not been disappointed yet in other hotels but the CIMBEL is the best !

Very Nice Place - but bring your own orange juice!

Posted 06-Nov-2013 on Hotels.com
There's a supermarket nearby, suggest you buy a carton of normal orange juice to take to the breakfast buffet. They still use that grim bright coloured sugar solution that was popular in hotels in the 1970's when orange juice was still considered a rare luxury. A small quibble for a nice, very well looked after hotel. A tower block on a personal scale with only 11 guest rooms per floor. Only 1 of the 11 face the back and I think some of them are single rooms, so well worth asking for a sea view if they're not busy

Great location

Posted 30-Oct-2013 on Hotels.com
Fantastic location on Levante Beach with majority of rooms having sea view. The hotel staff were very helpful and the hotel is very clean. The only downside for me would it could do with a bit of updating and wasn't hugely impressed with the food, everything felt a little old fashioned to be honest, if I stayed again, I'd probably just book room only. But for me, the huge benefit was the location so would definitely book again.

Perfect Location

Posted 25-Oct-2013
Pros: The pool area was excellent, being able to relax and at the same time watch the world go by on the promenade.
Cons: Not much to improve now. In previous stays the evening meals left a little to be desired but they have improved to a very high standard now
Location: Shops both old town and new close by and so handy for a walk along the front
We had a fantastic stay, with the hotel being in a central location for the beach & the Old Town for Shopping
