"hotel is clean,maid service daily.food is ok.if your hoping for a full english breakfast,you have to save your food for the week then you might just get a full breakfast,no beans at all,everyday it was peeled tomato's,mushrooms,boiled egg or fried was not impressed by this.the pool side beds was limited to appox 45 which had to cater for appox 200 guests,my partner an me went into other hotels due to the few beds there.it is pretty much in the heart of things just a stone throw away from the bars etc.the worst thing that we did not like is walking through the bar to check in at evening times as people where dancing away to music."

"The only good thing about this hotel was the food! Around the pool area there was that many rules such as: no music, no liloâs, no splashing, no jumping in or diving made us go to the beach or even a different hotels pool every day. Not that youâd mind because the wall around the pool was that high non of that 38 degrees sun could get in!
Itâs about a 5 min walk to all the hustle and bustle, but donât expect to walk in drunk at any point as the constant shhhhh puts a dampener on your good night especially when England had just won football 4-2!!!
The roomâs were not cleaned every day nor did we have a change of towels in the week we were there(we decided in the end to use our own) we also paid supplementâs on the room because it was a 4 share and there was only 2 of us, when we walked in 2 bedâs just about fitted in there never mind 4!
I can safely say going back to Benidorm in 10 weeks I will never stay in Vista Blanca again."

"When went to the Vista Blanca in July 2004 and thought it was the best. It was in the best possible position in the massive resort of Benidorm in the new town, not far from the beach, shops and nightlife, a more or less all English hotel except the odd couple of Spanish and French while we were there we saw no Germans which is strange.
The hotel itself was great, food was the best, and accommodation was o.k. due to the small rooms but you are only getting changed and sleeping in them so that wasnât too bad. The pool was a reasonable size and you are now allowed to dive and have lilo's and dinghyâs etc. The entertainment was good having karaoke nights and disco nights, the staff were top quality and there was enough things to do and eat.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone that is looking for a lively holiday and a good fun activity holiday also there is a kids club."
