Group of 15 for a Stag and it was great. Ticked all of the boxes! All inclusive booze was flowing, food was perfect and the atmosphere was epic. Staff were friendly and accommodating - even the militant security guard sent to 'protect us'.

"Cheap and cheerful but does the job and close to the beach"
Close to the beach with an indoor pool and an outdoor pool with a fun kids area in it as well. The apartments are nice enough and have a tiny kitchen area with two electic hobs, a microwave and a sink and fridge. There's a small supermarket just opposite the hotel which is really convenient and the town is a 5 minute walk down the hill (as is the beach) Enough crockery and pots and pans for our needs certainly although I probably wouldn't want to try to cook a meal for a whole family every night in the space. Downsides of the hotel are that lots of stag nights and hen nights seem to stay so be prepared for some disturbance in the corridors at night and possibly some drunk groups by the pool during the day although we didn't mind so much and it wasn't a problem. (probably the same issue in most places in Benidorm) Also, they have a hot tub by the indoor pool but it often wasn't working. Nice enough hotel bar. Breafast was not good though and you have to pay so I wouldn't bother. We made our own or went to one of the many nearby cafe's. All in all, a good choice for us.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in mid September. We arrived very early on our first day, at 10.30am and the hotel were very helpful and let us check in early and go to the room by 11am. The usual check in time is 3pm.
The hotel facilities are very nice, and the hotel design really does make it feel like a Mediterranean village. The swimming pool was massive and very nice. We had our pick of sun loungers as the hotel was not very busy, but I have seen from other reviews that the hotel and pool area is very busy doing peak times.
The buffet breakfast was included in our room rate and we really enjoyed this. The selection was plentiful and included hot items, cold meats and cheese, fruit, cereal, pastries and toast etc.
We ate at the Spanish Tapas restaurant in the evening twice and the Italian restaurant once. Both restaurants offered excellent food and service and we thought the prices were very reasonable for this standard of hotel.
All members of staff that we dealt with were very friendly and helpful. They didn't all speak English fluently but we got by.
What I didn't realise was that the hotel offered free parking for guests. If I had known that I would have booked us a hire car as the taxi charges to and from the hotel were expensive at Euro 70 each way.
The hotel is about a 10 min taxi ride from Benidorm.
I would definitely stay at this hotel again for a few days in the sun......but I wouldn't bother leaving the hotel to check out Benidorm!
