We were then very shocked to him moaning at me in Spanish for taking a sip of coke on the bus, he shouted "no, it's no possible, no it's not possible". I very slowly screwed the top back on and sat saying nothing. In Mamaris, we would usually have got an unbelievably warm welcome, a hand shake, ... more

I went on holiday to benidorm in august 2012, just a casual holiday.It is not as bad as everybody makes out to be. The weather is beautiful. The beaches were tidy and had soft sands and clear sea. Sun loungers and umbrellas on the beach are Euro4. I could easily recognise where people get the 'tacky' and 'blackpool' part from. There is the old town and the new town. My hotel was in the middle of the two towns. You know where you reach the new town where you shop by shop selling the same things and cheap cafes. In the old town there are lots of friendly bars and decent shops with different merchanise. The hotel I stayed in was just what I needed, all inclusive with 2 resturants, clean and air con rooms, a pool, jaccuzi, sauna. Overall, great holiday and will be returning!!

**THIS IS NOT A REVIEW OF SPAIN, IT'S A REVIEW OF BENIDORM IT'S MY PERSONAL OPINION BASED ON MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND I'M ENTITLED TO THAT OPINION** I travelled to Benidorm only last month with my mother for a quick 4 day break. If you regularly read my reviews, you will probably know that I often travel to Marmais so this was a one-off and the first time I have been somewhere other than Marmaris for 10 years. This was an interesting, and in my opinion, and awful experience that I hope I never have to endure ever again. We decided to chose somewhere to go for a quick break whilst the kids went to Butlins with their other Aunty. We would have ... Read the complete review

I was fortunate enough to first visit Benidorm as a child in 1969, returning a few times on family holidays until having my first holiday away with friends aged 17, now aged 48, i must have visited Benidorm 50-70 times at a guess, if not more, Benidorm either bites you or it doesnt ! Read what it says on the tin, thats what you will get, plenty of review sites, but you cant please everyone, ( ive read reviews and one family said there was no HP sauce in the hotel, ye but no but ! you get my drift ! Ive stayed in some of the best and worst hotels in Benidorm, ( you get what you pay for ) De loix aqua hotel, a good 20 minute walk from the beach, price range, ... Read the complete review

A few weeks ago, a couple of mates and I booked an exceptionally last minute deal - the day before - to go to the Valencian coastal town of Benidorm for four nights. It cost us just shy of Ģ300 each for flights, transfers, accommodation and all-inclusive food, drink and facilities at the Flamingo Hotel. While we didnt actually stay at the Flamingo, rather in a large block of appartments five minutes walk away, which were exceptionally comfortable and well-furnished, the arrangement was fine. The food, drink and facilities at the Flamingo were all to a decent standard, with a wide choice, buffet-style for food at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Despite going out ... Read the complete review

Benidorm Medieval nights. This is a fantastic trip, some hotels offer it free when you book a package holiday. We stayed in the tropicana gardens (magic monkia now) hotel and got the trip included. We stayed all inclusive for two weeks. The hotel hires a taxi to take you to the 'Castle', it is quite grand there is a moat around the entrance and as you enter you get your picture taken with the queen. You are shown to your seats and are served food and wine or beer all night. The food is a medieval banquet so you have soup and bread to start followed by chicken legs for a main. The food is edible but it isn't by any means top quality but you get what ... Read the complete review
