Enjoyed our stay it been a couple of years ago but we are going back hopefully this year if it's open stunning views from the roof great facility's friendly staff very nice rooms would recommend easy access to cars and restaurants terra metica and golf courses
I love this hotel, it is busy, it is buzzing, it is the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in, and the staff are marvellous. Carlos the manager cannot do enough for his guests, he runs round like a headless chicken, is very busy but always has time to say hello, smile and help if you need it.
I originally booked the Cabana Hotel the other side of Benidorm town, however, we were changed to this hotel. First impressions were great. It's 186m high, has an outside lift that goes up to the 43rd floor in tower 2 and caters for thousands of guests.
Check in at reception was nice. Didn't have to wait too long, maybe 10 minutes during busy times, information for your stay was all placed into an envelope for you to keep.
We went up to our room and it was perfectly adequate for our stay. Temperature control, freebies in the bathroom (including a comb!), satellite TV, balcony with a view over the pool, VERY comfortable mattresses and fresh, clean linen.
Breakfast was good with a wide selection of food. They have disposable gloves and hand gel dotted around so it is very hygienic.
I did come across a piece of raw chicken by the poolside which was hilarious but I informed them right away and it was sorted. I assume that some children thought that a slab of chicken was the best thing in the world and wanted to play with it. However, the pool chemicals would have killed any germs, no problems there.
I did have an issue but I spoke with the hotel manager who was very apologetic and even offered us a free night stay to apologise. I have absolute confidence that the manager will improve anything that needs improving.
