The 10 best hotels in Benidorm, Spain

August 7, 2022 Kaleigh Reichenbach

Bask on four miles of golden beaches, hit the Mediterranean Sea on water skis or stroll along Benidorm's promenade and revel in its seaside charms; it's a true Spanish beauty of the Costa Blanca. Originally a fishing town, the city's historic center wows with its blue-domed 18th-century church and picturesque alleyways. Panoramic views reward those who climb into the surrounding Canfali hills, and nearby rocky coves reveal underwater riches for scuba enthusiasts. End a day in the sun with a feast of local seafood.

A group of 3 adults 1 child , we had a very relaxing 1 week break. Reception not that helpful , we had experienced an item of clothing go missing from the room and was passed from pillar to post , although they did rectify this on the final day with a gesture of good will. Facilities are great , and hotel is very clean. Although I feel that the gym should be included and not €6 for 2 hours use! The food option was brilliant , a great variety and well stocked . Bar staff brilliant , especially Alvaro stood out to us , so friendly and attentive to our son, always made sure we had everything we need. Great service, and bar staff always happy and chatty. This was the 2nd visit and will be back.

Honest review

Reviewed By lou20162013

We stayed here on a last minute 9 day break. We go to benidorm every year and have stayed at many hotels, our hotel of choice is the Rosamar but due to it being closed for a refurb we tried this hotel. First the hotel is clean and child friendly. The splash park is very good as is the other pool. The day kids club facilities are good which is a soft play area and various activities taking place throughout the day with very nice staff. The AI choice of drinks which are branded are very good. The nighttime entertainment is hit and miss, about three good shows 2 ok shows and the rest were pretty boring. The kids entertainment on a night is the worst we have seen and is aimed more for the Spanish and is very poor, even our kids who love doing everything didn’t want to participate in any of it. The food is ok not the worst but certainly not the best and after 4 days I couldn’t face anymore of it. The rooms are ok, they are cleaned everyday but we didn’t realise there wasn’t a balcony which didn’t work for us as we like sitting out on a balcony. All the staff were very friendly and happy to help. The location is at the end of the Levante beach and is located up a hill which is something to be mindful of if you have young children or mobility issues. Would I stay here again, nope because of the reasons I have stated but again not the worst I’ve stayed in but certainly not the best. PS if you do get fed up of the food what we found out on the last night was you can order fresh pizzas from reception or the app (in boxes) to be cooked and collected from the speciality Italian restaurant on a night which was pretty good for no extra cost.

Amazing hotel for families and couples

Reviewed By R4639UKkatieb

Just got back from an amazing week in Benidorm at this beautiful hotel. First time taking my little boy away (20 months) and this hotel was perfect for him. Children - Soft play downstairs was a life saver for keeping him entertained out of the sun, staff were so attentive and amazing with him, a bonus for us but maybe not for everyone no balcony to worry about him going on to, lots of food choices for him and a separate outdoor area with children pool and play area! Bedrooms - done to a very high standard, very luxurious and comfortable. Food - I am a extremely fussy easter so all inclusive usually isn’t the best for me but there was a sign in the restaurant area letting you know special requests can be made which gave me some reassurance but turns out I never actually needed to ask for anything, there was always something I liked and for those that are really fussy and those going with kids there is always chips! Area/Location - the location of this hotel was perfect for us, quiet area but lively enough. Right on the beach front close to little supermarkets, shops cafes etc. you can easily walk into the old town which we would do a couple times a day and about a 40 min walk from the new town which we did on occasion. Entertainment- there is in house entertainment on a evening which was always fab to watch quite low key and fun perfect for families. Staff- the staff were what really made this hotel for us, always happy to do anything for you before you’ve even asked, friendly, chatty just so wonderful! Especially the restaurant staff.

First time with the kids

Reviewed By K3115GPanthonyp

I have been coming to this hotel twice a year every year for over 15 years and I love the place but this time I came with my girlfriend and step kids. Now I love the place but I was worried if the kids would like having never being abroad before. It turns out I had nothing to worry about all the kids loved it and can't wait to go back next year even when asked if they would like to try a different hotel they all said they would like to come back to the Cristal park. But in the mean time me and the girlfriend have already booked again for October (just us two this time). I would like to especially thank Liana who went above and beyond to sort out rooms out she is a star and also Anita in the magic cafe who gets the drinks perfect every time and is always happy to help in anyway she can. See you all again in October ?

stay was okay, wouldn't return

Reviewed By jaketW2667BE

we arrived late at night so check in was not as bad as some other reviews on here, but he said because it was late to come back to reception tomorrow to be told anything we need to know, gave us our wristbands and sent us on our way. You get a buggy to your room and that was funny as it ran out of battery half way up the hill. Rooms were lovely, double bed (2 singles pushed together) then bunk beds in separate room and 2 small bathrooms with showers, was so disappointed in the cleanliness, the cleaners come in and just made the beds, the floors were never cleaned, every time we came in from the day to get ready for evening our feet were black as soon as we got out the shower, had to put flip flops on straight away, I ended up cleaning the floor with baby wipes. Breakfast is okay, but lunch and dinner are absolutely disgusting, My children and I hardly ate anything the whole week, and the fly's are everywhere, I mean you grab a bit of ham and 5 fly's fly off, when eating dinner you are constantly hitting them away something needs to be done to try and control this. Entertainment is crap!!! and all in Spanish! queues to get drinks are about 20 minutes long all night every night, even during the day around the pool and water park! Swimming pool is far too small we went to the water park every day which is amazing just 1 little down side is the amount of schools that go in there, the children push all the little children out the lines for the little slides and no teachers supervise them, but don't waste your holiday by staying at the hotel pool. Zoo is good. The on site shuttles are so good, drivers always wait for you and make sure you don't get left, they are all so polite and lovely to the children. My 2 boys made friends and wanted a photo with them all, myself and my husband told them to jump on the buggy that was parked up, the were sitting in it just about to have a photo and a young man who worked there came round the corner and shouted at them asking what they think they were doing and to get off, as he drove off he was shaking he's head muttering something in Spanish, the weren't doing anything wrong!

Hotel Agua Azul

Lovely long awaited holiday ...

Reviewed By ChesterMerlin

We changed to the Agua Azul after we were notified by JET2 that the hotel we had booked had building work going on. 2 days later we we had another email to say there was building work going on across the way from the Agua Azul :( we could not be bothered changing again and after speaking to my dad who had stayed there previously and loved it we are so glad we stuck with our choice. All the staff were lovely and helpful. I requested a high floor which we got (right opposite the building work previously mentioned!) - it did not bother us infact quite entertaining watching the builders swinging from the scaffolding like a circus show! It was my birthday and they left a bottle of Cava and cake in our room on the 2nd day which was a lovely touch. We were only B&B which was lovely and plenty of choice. The pool area is small and unfortunately gets very busy - there was a queue of guests every morning waiting for the pool area to open at 9am - by 9.30 all beds were taken. There are two other sun lounge areas that no one used so we were fine as we like to go out and about most of the day. The location is superb for the old town and the strip - we will turn. Thank you Hotel Agua Azul for a lovely stay
