An enjoyable, early season holiday.
Posted Apr 20, 2014
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.
