Good time had by all
"Location is perfect for all bars/entertainment/beach. The room was clean and tidy and had TV with English channels and even got to watch a couple of the Euro matches on it. Cleaning service everyday and they were very helpful if you just wanted the bins emptied and fresh towels. The food was absolutely fantastic and there was something for everyone in the family. Breakfast was really good everyday, and if you missed it you could go around the corner for a full breakfast for one euro 40 cents. All the staff within the hotel from reception to maintenance man were friendly and helpful. The pool area is really good because it has 2 tiers and plenty of sun loungers to go around, no matter what time i came down to the pool and there was always a bed available. "

Brill good all rounder
"We have just come back from this Hotel and I have not got a bad work to say about it, the rooms are clean and tidy, the food is very good and the service is top notch, the pool is good and their is plenty of sun beds and the best thing is that the staff only open the doors at 9am so it meant that your didnt have to get up at the crack of dawn just to get a bed, even when towels were put on and the holiday makers went back to bed the staff remove any unsused towels by 10.30am which in my opinion was a good thing, the hotel entertainment was good and the location is fab, right near the sea shops and night life, we stayed in a room at the front of the hotel and some reviews said that the noise was bad but I never had a problem sleeping and neither did my husband, son mam and dad so dont be put off. We have already booked this hotel again for march 2011, same rooms, I have stayed at many hotels in benidorm and would recommend this very much."

A good experience
"Stayed for a week. Full board. Service was second to none. Older crowd. Not really suitable for children in my opinion. Rooms cleaned when you were not in (late risers) didn't matter the staff waited for you to leave the "Please clean the room" notice on the door. W I F I in the reception area. Went early March so can't say much about pool. Centrally located. If you didn't want to eat in all food prices very cheap. Full Irish/English breakfast for â¬4.50 including tea or coffee. Alcohol also cheap â¬2.70 in hotel (â¬2.00)Happy hour. Outback pub next door shows all sports. Very friendly and â¬1.50 a pint Guinness as well. Perfect for a couple to get away from it all and relax. Great variety of food in the restaurant from salads and pasta to full courses and irresistable desserts."

viva les spania
"We are just back from a weekend in this Hotel and it was great. The Hotel is spotless and rooms are nice and also very clean. The staff were very helpful. The Restaurant is also very clean with a good variety of food from breakfast to evening meals. They also have a happy hour from 12 till 8pm which is good but hey you do get rather tipsy!!!
The Hotel is situated near to most of the pubs and clubs which is also very good and not built on a hill so if you are an elder you would not have any problems walking around the area of it.
We did enjoy the weekend lots of shows to see and must recommend Krissy Rock and the guy with the Monkey which you can see below the Hotel in the Comedy Club. You do pay slighty more in the clubs to see any act but in most bars pints are 1 euro and spirits are mostly buy one get one free.
All in all have a great time."

Please please dont book!!
"We had a marvellous holiday here - full board for the price of half!
The only problem is we decided to start having lunches and ended up putting pounds on!
Only as I say don't book if you want to keep your waistline!"

Presidente Hotel - Benidorm
"My husband and I stayed for a week at the beginning of January. We have been to Benidorm before, but thought we would try the Presidente, We stayed at the hotel for the first time and the comfort and location were brilliant.Unfortunately we had a room over the main road and on several occasions were woken up and 3.30p by shouting and arguing from people leaving the bar across the road.
Also we were very disappointed with the food choices at meal times. The menu was extremely bland and the same dishes appeared on the menu at both dinner and tea. The soups were all wishy washy and tasteless. We are not fussy eaters, but we were fed up with the same dishes ( pickled gerkins, grated beetroot and cold rice pudding. The whole menu needs a complete revamp!!!. "

Bang on....just what ya need
"We what can ya say the place is just great, wonderful location in the heart of the levante end, cross one street to get to the beach and has its own cabaret lounge in the lower basement..We were full board and i must say the food choice was great all week never the same choice and always plenty of it, breakfast full hit and all the other stuff if you want it,diner was fab salads fish meat and lots of lovely puddings and cakes and help yourself ice cream machine,evening meal great again and same plenty of choice and pudds..there is no way anyone could go hungry unless there is something seriously wrong with them. staff were always plesant and helpful,the maids are always keen to get in everyday to clean. The only one thing i would have like was a room overlooking the pool..round the side where we were was ok but a little shaded and no sunshine...but a nice room all the same. tv's you need to get a remote 15 euros deposit you get back..great all in all and we will using this hotel again very soon.. also the pool is covered for the winter use with a conservatory and open in the summer i guess"

Fantastic location/hotel to suit
"We got back last night and boy what a holiday! It was a three star hotel and you need to remember this when booking. Having said that it was top of three star standards.
This hotel was in a fantastic location - close to the bars, clubs, shops and beach. Everything was so close but no noise heard at all. Rooms were clean and tidy, food was good with a good selection and different choices every day. (How did they do that?)
Swimming pool bar man not the happiest or friendliest person but all the other staff were great and really helpful. We will definitely be going back."
