We stayed at the Melia Benidorm for 7 nights which we booked last minute with jet2, what a lovely hotel! Staff all friendly hotel is spotless rooms cleaned daily with clean towels & beds made up. We were bed & breakfast which was plentiful there was fresh fruit,cereal, yogurts,full English or continental fresh bread rolls tea coffee fruit juice etc. We were on the 13th floor & had a pool view the room & bathroom were larger than any we have stayed in on our other trips to different hotels in Benidorm we both slept well.. it was not at all noisy which is a definite bonus! The hotel is huge with a great pool area, plenty of sun beds & outdoor bar area that also serves food...it's like a tropical garden. The hotel is about 10 mins walk to the beach & roughly 20 mins walk into the centre there are numerous shops & bars on the street/side streets & quite a few eating places including 4 Chinese restaurants! The Rock & Roll bar just up the road from the Melia has really good entertainment on each night. All in all a great place to stay in Benidorm we will definitely be back!
Stayed here for 10 days in June with my family hotel was great & very comfortable beds,the pool area was good plenty of sun beds but as usual sad people still putting towels down on beds at 7am ! The food was awful & it's let this hotel down in a big way the breakfast was often cold & the choice was limited if you just want toast you will only get warm bread unless you have time to keep putting it through I did 7 times still not toasted eventually gave up . Dinner wasn't much better nothing looked appetising even the salad bar was poor for a 4 star hotel I expected a bit better . The staff were polite & friendly but when I went to the bar for some milk for our two year olds bottle I was charged 2 euros considering she never ate anything on our half board package absolutely disgraceful after this 79 cents for a litre of milk in the local supermarket.
Third time staying here. Rooms cleaned very well. Towels were so thin terrible for a four star hotel. FOOD well what can you say shocking everything cold was poorly twice so we ate out out all the time. The drinks were bad wine was the cheapest you could but. And the sparking was worse. Trying to get a sun bed was bad they were going out and putting towels out at 7am. No way is this a four star. Would not stay again.
Very good hotel, about 15 minutes walk from the Levante beach and 15 minutes walk to Benidorm Palace, central for a huge array of entertainment. The food was self service and had an excellent choice for breakfast and dinner. Staff where brilliant, would recommend to anyone going to Benidorm.
We stayed in the Melia Benidorm from 5th to 12th June. Our first impression of the hotel was wow. The reception and lounge area was really nice and comfortable. The staff are very friendly couldn't fault them. The rooms are of good size with great beds my daughter was in the Level her room was amazing. Now for the negative side. The food was not very good it was difficult to find something to eat. Most of the time I had a bread roll with butter. But I didn't starve, that did me just fine. The outside pool area was lovely with lots of sun beds and loads of room. I wouldn't go back because of the food. Which is a shame because it is a really nice hotel.
I am happy to say, I was very pleased with my holiday to Melia Benidorm, for 7 nights. The reviews are very up and down on here, so I wanted to add my points. Check in - No hassle and the room was available when we arrived, which was before lunch. We were even asked which floor we wanted out of 2, the 5th or something at the top. As we had read about the lift delays, we went for the 5th. So this to us was a very nice touch. Pool area and outside bar - Lovely. but the umbrellas are static, which is a shame because if you do not get out first thing you will be lucky to get one. However, the beds were in ample supply and there were lots of palm trees, which could be used for shade if needed. The pool temperature, however, was rather cold. I think if this was increased just a little, a lot more people would be in the pool. The Bar outside did what it needed, with music being played for guests in the area close by. I never had an issue with waiting too long. Also, it was closed on the Sunday for a private party (something that others complained about) but another bar was open outside and again the service was not slow, so not an issue. Rooms - Air conditioning, fridge, room size and beds, all great. No complaints at all. The room was cleaned very well and the balcony was good, overlooking the pool. Food - We went half board, and was happy to find out that we could swap our evening meal for lunch with no hassle, and we did this everyday. Breakfast is good and there is enough for everyone. I found the lunches to be quite restrictive and repetitive. I would often walk around and make do. I believe it would be good to add some basics like burgers etc, that would have been better. I hope that this does happen when children are on holidays. I believe from reviews that the evening had even less choice and if we had planned to eat in the hotel in the evenings, this really would have put a dampner on our visit. Thankfully this was never our intention and with some really great places close to the hotel (Yorkshire Pride III and China Garden, to name a few), we were spoilt for choice. Evening entertainment - We only saw this once and it was rather bizarre. The theme was horror I am guessing, but it was rather strange. Along with this, I hardly ever saw the entertainment team. I do tend to keep myself to the group I am with, but usually like watching from a far games such as water vollyball etc. The only thing I saw was water bikes exercise and the plastic run, that people (which is a great idea)
booked for 10 nights, check in was quick, was given a high room 20th floor. arrived in time for lunch, this set the tone for the rest of our stay, to be frank it was disgusting, the warmest item was the plate you ate off. not a lot of choice. nobody would starve but it was not to my liking. evening meal was much the same fair, warm! breakfast next day consisted of two boiled eggs and bread rolls. the machine coffee was equally bad, you could get orange if there was any left in machine. thats the worst over. the pool area is great, pools are great, towels provided (for a refundable deposit) changing them is a lottery however, reception will tell you to go to the spa, this was where we met the worst member of staff imagineable, she was very nice at all when she barked at us the spa doesnt do towels you get them from reception. no further visits to the spa them, custom lost. the all inclusive is a bit mean, lots of things not included at the bar. service is very brisk and polite. the coffee is excellent, they will make exactly how you like it. one or two people really abused the bar service from early morning till late evening. they will know who they are. Would i stay again? well yes i will on a room only basis, plenty cafes restaurants around this hotel which are good and cheap.
Over all trip excellent will be returning next year rooms and Hotel very clean local to all amenities not to close to nosey strip but close enough to walk there if needed brilliant bus services and taxi services excellent English food would recommend this hotel to anyone .
Breakfast service needs new toasters and an improvement to the quality of food. there is no excuse serving under ripe fruit.. My 3rd visit & I noticed a few cracks in the overall experience. Staff cuts perhaps?
fantastic hotel clean and very comfortable. staff friendly and helpful nothing to much trouble. upgrade and use the level reception and it gives so much more perks. drinks snacks private sun bathing and separate dining on a better level
