This hotel is situated in the "old town" and is in a convenient location on the beach front near to many shops and restaurants, and a pleasant walk to the "new town".
The staff were excellent, very friendly and helpful.
The room was spotless, had decent facilities, and outstanding views across the beach front and over the sea as well as a balcony.
The food was outstanding. A good variety every night, very well cooked and very tasty.
The only criticism I would have is that smoking is permitted on the balconies, and on some occasions it was not possible to sit out/have the balcony doors open due to the stink from neighbouring balconies.
This is one of the worst Hotels. The service was horrendous. The apartments have a sewer smell. The managers/supervisors don’t care about the customer service issues. The food in the restaurant extremely overpriced. Do not spend your money staying in this property. You will be highly dissatisfied. Hotel POSEIDON not a place to stay.
Great position overlooking the poniente playa,the best beach in benidorm,all staff very helpful and obliging, marvelous to be back again in this our favorite hotel which is kept in tip top condition ,we have stayed here over 25 times over the years,well worth a look
