Ideally situated

Posted 23-Jan-2015
Pros: Staff, location cleanliness.
Cons: Tea facilities in room, sky news on tele, but that is picky.
Location: Lots bars walkable to restaurants, shops, spar close by, supermarket opposite, parking free if parked on ramp. Wifi was complementary for one day,
This was the second time I stayed here in two weeks, been with my husband and then my elderly mother, excellent location. For both stays. Walkable to the many lively bars, walkable to the Benidorm palace. Great pool that gets the sun, although did not swim in January, I had the breakfast option, very nice, full range for all taste,s just booked again for one night in February. Very pleasant staff very helpful.

Smart hotel near the back of Benidorm

Posted 02-Jan-2015
Pros: We liked just about everything about the hotel. The room was spacious and comfortable, with a large sun trap of a balcony
Cons: Possibly the ground floor loos, which other users hadn't treated particularly well
Location: The Melia is close to the Benidorm Palace, where you can book to go for a very good four course meal and the brilliant show, or just the show itself.
We went for a winter sun break and chose to stay at the Melia, where the facilities are excellent. It was a bit cold outside so we didn't use the outside pool, but we did use the lovely inside pool, and the jacuzzi, and if we wanted to, we could have taken advantage of the gym next door or had a spa treatment while we were in the pool area. However, having gone there to enjoy the warmer climate and almost constant sunshine, we chose to sunbathe on the balcony each morning, then walk down to the beach and promenade each afternoon to try and work off some of the huge buffet breakfast we'd eaten in the restaurant. Interestingly there were more Spanish people at the hotel than English, and I take this as a good sign, because it means the locals rate this hotel as highly as we do. We found the staff to be very friendly, and most of them spoke good English as well, so it saved me from some embarrassment at not being able to speak Spanish, although my wife can speak a little, and with her help we managed quite well, and got on well with everyone we met. Although the Melia is near the back of the resort, this had the advantage of being close to the Benidorm Palace, where we went for a four course meal and the brilliant EFEX show. I can't rate this show highly enough, and I think the Melia should do a package deal of a week at the hotel, with a trip to the Benidorm Palace show thrown in for an all inclusive price. I think they'd sell out very quickly indeed!

Very good hotel in a fairly quieter part of town.

Posted 29-Dec-2014
Cons: When I booked my stay I was led to believe that breakfast was included in the deal but this was not the case when I registered though the receptionist
Location: Close to entertainment bars and Benidorm Palace
Very good hotel with excellent facilities. Room was comfortable and clean. Would stay there again.

Nice Hotel nothing to complain about at all. I read other reviews about cold food but I have to say the food was always hot and the plates warm

Fantastic

Posted 31-Oct-2014
Pros: Spa, indoor pool, activities during the morning in the pool, gym and jacuzzis
Cons: The variety and quality of the food in the evenings and the evening entertainment
Location: Location is about 10 mins walk from the beach. Plenty of shops of route for a browse. Lots of things to do and places to eat and drink on the beach
The hotel was perfect, indoor heated pool, jacuzzis and a spa. Great value for money 1 hr full body massage for 2 people 50 euros. Well worth a visit. The only thing I feel that let the hotel down was the evening meal wasn't very good. The breakfast and lunches were fine as you always left the restaurant feeling like you'd enjoyed what you'd eaten
