Rh royal. Lovely

Posted 20-May-2014 on Hotels.com
We arrived at 11 am expecting to be hanging around waiting until 3 pm before we could check in. No need to worry, very friendly staff at reception made a few phone calls and sorted within 10 mins! Rooms very nicely decorated and clean and tidy. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff throughout this hotel . We had breakfast and lunch at royal each day and food was very good, with plenty of variety. Drinks were reasonably priced and pool and solarium areas adequate in May time but possibility bit overcrowded later in summer. Would have no hesitation in booking Royal again.

Very relaxing hotel

Posted 01-May-2014
Pros: The fact that it is adult only gives it a very relaxed feel throughout the hotel especially when dining.
Cons: perhaps display menus of the main items for lunch and evening meal each day in the reception area
Location: Hotel is perfectly located beside the old town with plenty of tapas bars, shops and the harbour.
Stayed here with my wife towards end of April. Loved the food. Staff are excellent. Wife adored hot tub by the pool. The hotel lives up to all expectations we had from looking at its website photos and a great previous visit at Christmas.

An enjoyable, early season holiday.

Posted 20-Apr-2014
Pros: The staff were much friendlier than you sometimes encounter in Spain. Rooms very clean and beds comfortable. Food quite varied, good breakfasts.
Cons: Aircon not very effective. Apart from, that, I can't think of anything. They can't do anything about the surrounding buildings.
Location: Beautiful beach, lots of bars and restaurants close by. Lots of uk bars, if that's what you are looking for. Not too many stags, but early in season.
My elderly mum and I had a lovely stay. A good mix of nationalities. Usual hotel type entertainment but Nuno tries very hard. A couple of good singers but, it's Benidorm, so people (well, Brits, anyway!) mostly go out in the evening. Food was quite varied and usually hot enough. The breakfasts, especially, were excellent. Staff were friendly and approachable but still professional. A short walk to the beach - less than 10 mins at an easy stroll. We went in early April. We could always get sun beds but not always in the sun. Sun was blocked for parts of the day by the surrounding high buildings. Whether this is the case in summer, when the sun is higher in the sky, I don't know. This resulted in lots of bed moving. There is a sun deck with extra sun beds, but there doesn't seem to be very many. If you want to spend all your time by the pool, these are issues to consider but if you're happy to use the beach, then they won't be a problem. Your key card is needed to call the lift from the lobby, a good security measure. Free wifi in the bedrooms as well as the main areas, which is unusual. Happy hour twice a day, lunchtime and early evening, was very welcome. All things considered, I would be happy to return with my mum, but not with my sun-worshipping husband.

Good Quality Hotel

Posted 03-Jul-2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed for 2 nights B & B, and were happy with our choice of Hotel.It is only a short walk down to the Old Town with all its shops, bars and its beach.Only negative comment would be - hard pillows.Breakfast is self service, hot and with a lot of choice.

Pros: You need to ask for access to your safe and pay a daily fee
Cons: Food isn't good but you can get a great breakfast for 5 Euros inc coffee at one of the many bars close by
Location: Location is perfect for all Benidorm has to offer
Best thing about the hotel is the location - just 5 minutes to the old town, 5 minutes to beach and near lots of shops and cheap bars. The pool area great and I liked the fact that it doesnt accept children. The whole place is very clean but it is on a road leading between old and new towns so you should expect some noise at night as the drunks make their way home
