Melia Benidorm (Benidorm, Spain)

Hotel Melia, Benidorm. Great weather, great hotel, great holiday!

This is a large hotel with a very spacious entrance hall and lobby and it felt like a four star hotel. It was the first time we had been to Benidorm and the hotel facilities are excellent with a fantastic swimming pool complex which our son thoroughly enjoyed. The grounds and décor are in very good condition and it was kept clean and free of any litter at all times (including the garden/pool area).

4Tell us about the pool

A There were plenty of sunbeds available at all times and various terraced areas where you could sit and enjoy a drink, snack or ice-cream. The outside poolside bar and café was open from 10am until 6pm.

5Do they have a kids club?

A No

6Did you eat there?

A breakfast

7Whats the food like?

A We opted for bed and breakfast and there was a good choice of everything you could wish for – cereals, fruit and both continental of full English style breakfast options.

8What was the room like?

A The rooms are spacious, well-furnished and had a balcony overlooking the pool. Being on the 12th floor we also had a view of the sea. The beds were comfortable and there was ample storage for everything we needed including a safe for valuables. The fridge was not available to use unless you stocked it up as a minibar which was a bit disappointing as we didn’t have the option of keeping our bottled water nice and cold.

9Did you think it was good value for money?

A We were satisfied with the price we paid for the time spent there and the breakfast choice and quality was good, so yes it was good value. We purchased a bed and breakfast package directly with the hotel that worked out at £889 in total for the family

10Any special features or activities for kids?

A Being out of season there wasn’t any set kids activities but we didn’t mind this as we enjoyed walking around the town areas.

11Tell us about the entertainment

A They held a couple of live music evenings but we generally headed for the old town in the evening. : They didn’t have a games room as such. There was a small area on the lower ground area that had a pool table and sit-in car racing game but that was it. Even though it was not high season there were enough people and children staying there to warrant a larger area with maybe a few more options. However, we spent most of the time in pool area or on the beach so it wasn’t a big deal.

12Is the hotel located in:

A beach

13Insider hints and tips?

A Benidorm has a reputation for English partying but the town is big enough to avoid the main ‘strip’ and still find some tranquil areas. We recommend taking the bus into the old town and sampling the tapas bars, shopping centre and many other restaurants that are on offer.
