Booked into Melia for one night..we live in Spain so often use this hotel group or used to as now we have had enough....turned up check-in was heaving id say at least 100 people in a q waiting, we decided to leave it came back later checked in ...room we had was for disabled so low shower with seat, basic facilities basic basic room, ordered drinks one water 2 cokes 9 euros.!!! sick of melia now ..noise from other rooms..corridors and something else which sounded like ice machine couldnt sleep
We took a 4 night break through Jet2 and had stayed at the Melia before so expected a similar experience but, sadly, it was poor. It took over an hour and half to check in and half an hour to check out. Throughout the stay the door key failed four times and each time it took the best part of 40 minutes to get it reprogrammed as we were on the 16th floor. The process was wait for the lift (there seems to be an inadequate number of lifts and the wait is significant especially early on a morning) go to the room, find that the key won't work, wait for the lift, go to the reception and find a queue, wait in the queue, get the key re-programmed, go back to the lift and wait again, go back to the room - and one occasion it still didn't work so it took an hour and half to resolve! - for info, the key was never put near a magnet or the phone!
We went here in the summer, it is a brill place. It is near everything, good priced, good food, nice pool. Lovely staff. Would defo recomend to go here. Not that near the beach but that's fine it's like a 20 min walk. The rooms are a bit dated but it's fine.
This hotel is let down by the poor quality of food. I’m not particularly fussy about my food but this hotel needs to seriously up its game. I’ve stayed in a few Melia hotels and they are usually of a high standard but this is really poor. The air con doesn’t work. The hairdryer doesn’t work properly the food is rubbish. The rooms are nice and the reception is pleasant but I wouldn’t stay again.
A group of 12 (6 adults and 6 children) went to the Melia Benidorm over Christmas and New Year, arriving on Boxing Day to a really warm welcome, reception staff couldn’t have been any more helpful. Our room was amazing, a good size for a family room with comfy beds and a great view. Food was really good and didn’t have a bad meal, beat all inclusive food we’ve had! Bar staff were always friendly especially Andrea and Fernando. Drinks were also very generous with the alcohol!! The indoor pool was lovely and warm and clean. The outdoor pool was freezing but what do you expect if you’re stupid enough to go in it in December!! (Like us) New Year’s Eve celebration were amazing!! Best fireworks I’ve ever seen in person!!! Overall Antonio and his staff really went out out there way to make our stay amazing Highly recommend!!
The hotel is very clean and staff are friendly but that’s about where it’s ends. On arrival we were allocated a room on 23rd floor, tried to enter the room and the key cards wouldn’t work. First trip down to reception and keys were changed, tried these and still didn’t work. Went back down to reception who said they would send a technician. Back up we go for the 3rd time and waited 20+ for the technician to arrive. When he did we were made to stand in the corridor and watch him try to open the door. He was unable to so back down to reception and asked for an alternative room which the gave us straight away. All in all this took around an hour to resolve from check in. Keys worked for the new room but when we entered the bathroom door had been taken off it’s hinges so has to report this which was fixed. Tv did work and had to be replaced and batteries in tv remove ran out!! Faulty Towers came to mind. Huge hotel in a good location but wouldn’t stay here again!
My partner and I stopped at this hotel for 4 nights over New year. We stayed room only as there was nearly £700 difference in price for half board. We arrived at 2 o'clock and was given a room on the 17th floor. Long ride in the lift. There were 4 so didn't wait too long. The room was spacious. Plenty of storage space. Complimentry shampoo etc. No tea and coffee facilities. The bed was comfy. Corridors a bit noisy at times. After the first night we got in the lift to the lower floor. The queue for breakfast was massive. So glad we weren't having breakfast. The hotel is nice but very big. 23 floors and 2 blocks. Too big for us. The walk to the main strip is around 15 minutes. Taxi back tho. There are bars and restaurants close by. Benidorm palace just up the road. Overall nice clean hotel, comfortable beds. About 10 English tv channels. Staff helpful.
A very nice hotel with friendly staff. First came here 12 years ago with my ex-partner and liked it so much I came back. Hotel is very comfortable and well positioned, being just a short walk from the beach.
Second visit to this hotel was not disappointed.... all rooms face to the sea...was just bed and breakfast but great choice of foods..... nice lounge areas to relax, pool area sees a lot of sun.... superior room very spacious... busy hotel but reception area spacious..... ask for room on higher floors for lovely views from Balcony
Stayed for a week at the end of August, Our room was lovely. We were on half board the food was fresh and there was a lot of it. The pool was excellent and there was no problem with sun beds each morning , our son met loads of friends in the children’s club and the people in charge were extremely friendly
