Hotel Pueblo Benidorm

Our mystery man on the street enjoys sneaky look the very pleasant PUEBLO HOTEL a popular 3* from SERVIGROUP.

In the top 30 hotels in Benidorm according to tripadvisor a fantastically well maintained hotel with great facilities and located away from the noise of the late bars, yet only a five minute hop to the beach and a stone throw from the famous Benidorm market.

Pueblo Hotel in Benidorm

THE HOTEL

A modern refurbished hotel offering 539 room spread over 15 floors in a traditional high-rise with views and unique to the Pueblo, 5 annexe buildings overlooking the pool and gardens with just 4 floors including ground floor rooms.  There are several guest areas each with a very different atmosphere including a large terrace to the front of the hotel, a café bar with pool terrace and a comfy lounge bar.

THE ROOMS

Hotel Pueblo Twin Room

Every room is bright, very well kept and exceptionally clean.  Light coloured beech wood and pale green colours create a very pleasant atmosphere.  Rooms enjoy a balcony or terrace with chairs and a table.  Bathrooms have great walk-in showers, attractive glass wash basin and of course a hairdryer.  Room facilities include FREE WiFi, flat screen TV with up to 60 channels including BBC and ITV also a room safe, telephone and air-conditioning or heating depending on the season.  All you need for a comfy holiday with a tip-top daily maid service.

THE FOOD

Served buffet style in a modern restaurant with funky chairs!  Unless you are really fussy everyone will find the food excellent, indeed servigroup are big on food!  The salads offer a big choice, every night there are stews, a Paella of the day, Pizzas and Pastas plus show cooking too.  Breakfast is vast with English favourites too.  We could not find anything to moan about, it was all good.  Dinner is served until 9pm, lunch until 3pm and a civilised breakfast until 10am.

THE POOL

Pueblo Hotel Pool and Gardens

Surrounded by the brightly coloured annexes and mature gardens and trees the pools offer an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Benidorm.  Lots of sunbeds and lots of space.  Enjoy two big pools and a Kiddies pool plus in winter a heated indoor pool.  The café bar terrace also overlooks the pool.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

pueblo-hotel

Three things really stand out at the Pueblo, lovely guest areas, very friendly and helpful staff (knowledgeable guest service desk in main lobby) and well above average food which was more 4* than 3*.  This is a good choice for couples and ideal for a low-season or mid-season holiday as less people are about.  The hotel is obviously well run and regular re-investment is high on the list of priorities in servigroup hotels, therefore you know that you are getting just what you have paid for.  Approved by many big tour operators including the likes of Jet2 holidays. We liked the Hotel Pueblo, very pleasant indeed. Great premium Gin & Tonic menu too!

Riviera Hotel Benidorm A Best Seller

Our mystery man on the street takes a sneaky look at one of the top rated hotels in town RIVIERA BEACHOTEL 4*

 

Currently the number two hotel in Benidorm according to 700 trip advisor reviewers, our man on the street decided to check out the facilities and see if the hotel lives up to all those glowing reports putting it in the number two spot.

THE HOTEL

The hotel is located only a very short hop from the heart of the entertainment hub of Benidorm in the Rincon de Loix and only five minutes from the Levante beach making it in a perfect location.  Following a complete refurbishment from the ground up the Riviera Beachotel re-opened the doors just two years ago.  This is a modern and rather funky hotel with impressive architecture and some of the most stunning lighting effects which create a quite unique atmosphere once the sun goes down.

THE ROOMS

Everything is new with exactly what you would expect from a newly refurbished 4* hotel of this class.  Really comfy beds for a good sleep plus of course facilities such as a mini-bar, big flat screen TV, electronic safes, Wifi and nicely designed bathrooms and Ladies, yes there is a hair dryer.  Most rooms offer superb big walk-in showers.  Rooms are not massive but are very adequate and bright with soft lighting that creates a relaxing mood.  The room we saw offered a lovely feature round window too with excellent views of Benidorm from the terrace.  Overall very deserving of the 4* rating with little extras such as better quality fluffy towels and a decent selection of toiletries. Oh! And you really could eat of the floor, the cleaning was impeccable, a credit to those often forgotten housekeeping staff.

THE FOOD

This is where the Riviera really does come up trumps.  Friendly and happy staff (makes a change!).  Meals are served buffet style, but, with a superior choice to that served in some hotels!  Replenished often (keeping food fresh) with a great choice of salads, hot dishes and very much geared toward the high numbers of British guests who stay here this time of year.  This is reiterated time and again in many online reviews.  Breakfast will fill you up for the day!

THE POOL

Perhaps the only drawback is the hotel pool which is a tad small and tends to get little sunshine until the afternoon.  However, it is a really pleasant area to sit and the pool bar offers very cheap drink (the hotel do not charge 4* prices) and a snack menu that offers excellent value too, just in case you are still hungry after the massive breakfast.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

When compared to other hotels in Benidorm the Riviera Beachotel is small with just 99 rooms and is therefore not going to be overly crowded at meal times, around the pool or in the bar during the daytime.  The terrace bar is open to the public and is a popular place at night due to the low prices (Bucket of 5 bottles of beer from only 4.50€) and entertainment so grab a seat early!  This is now a top selling hotel in Benidorm and should be booked as early as possible to ensure you get a room.  Guests staying here get up to 25% off at the Western Saloon, Morgan Tavern and the UK Comedy Club.

A typical 1970´s building lovingly refurbished, we liked very much. Book this and over 400 Benidorm and Costa Blanca hotels by visiting realbenidorm.net

 


Hotel Deloix Aqua Center in Benidorm

A sneaky look at the very fabulous HOTEL DELOIX  4*

Hotel Deloix Benidorm

THE HOTEL  location - Avenida  Doctor Severo Ochoa, 34  03503 Benidorm

Often overlooked by many visitors due to the location on the edge of town, however the Hotel De Loix is clearly one of the better choices and is simply perfect for a weekend break where you just want to chill by the pool all day and venture out at night.

This is a low-rise hotel big on style with superb hanging gardens and a lush tropical internal featured garden too.  There is a real feeling of space with modern furniture in the reception and café bar which creates an awesome atmosphere.  This is no ordinary hotel, this is somewhere very special and quite unique in Benidorm.  Staff were all friendly too.

THE ROOMS                                                                                       

You get big here!  Big rooms, big balconies and big views of the surrounding mountains and countryside.  All 188 rooms are furnished in a minimalist but functional style making that big space feel even bigger!  Every room comes with a comfy sofa which is great for couples and for families with either one or two children the sofa quickly converts into a bed for the kids.  Internet is a decent speed and cost just 5€ per week.

THE FOOD

A buffet restaurant offering a good selection for breakfast, more continental with less hot selection than us Brits prefer, but nice enough.  Evening meals include an abundant selection of fresh salad plus a choice of fish and meats from the hot buffet.  Wine by the glass comes in at under 2€ and a big bottle of water just 3€ so inexpensive for drinks with your meals.  Lots of fresh fruit and sticky deserts.  All in all always something nice to eat and perfect for a long weekend, probably get a bit dull after a week but buffets always do.

THE POOLS

A nice big pool awaits you with plenty of sunbeds plus an excellent Kids pool located in a shaded position so you don´t have to worry about the Kids roasting away in the sun!  For those who prefer their breaks child free there is an Adult only pool on the rooftop, a huge bonus to be honest.  The indoor pool is fantastic (obligatory silly hats only 2.50€) with some nice features.  Pool towels are available for a 1€ fee.  They keep the pool area closed until 10am, to stop the annoying folks putting towels out before breakfast.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

The walk to the beach takes 20 minutes on the flat, regular buses stop outside the hotel to take you down to the beach and back (Taxis cost about 6€).  Benidorm Palace is across the road for a superb dinner and show experience (a must) and Aqualandia and Mundomar just a 10 minute walk behind the hotel.  The road leading into Benidorm is littered with bars and cafés including the popular Levi´s Showboat for some fun nights out.  From September onwards expect mainly couples and very few children.  This is not a hotel with lots of groups so unlikely to encounter any Hens or Stags here, hoorah!  Enjoy, we did.
