Lovely hotel but watch out.......
"We stayed in the Sandos Hotel in October 2013 and we really loved it. We loved it so much we booked to go back in April 2014. We stayed for 7 nights and when Thursday night came groups of hen and stag parties arrived and literally took the hotel over. Some of the women were really drunk and to see them at breakfast the next morning slobbering at the tables was disgusting. I'm going to the Melia in October this year. Sorry Sandos !
"Love Benidorm" "

"This hotel is very clean spacious the staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. The hotel rooms are large plenty of space for clothing etc the beds are so comfortable the bathrooms are beautiful, room service everyday.
The food was great something for everyone cooked and presented to a very high standard. The snack bars, outside seating, lounge areas very comfortable entertainment very good. We have nothing but praise for this hotel and would most certainly stay there again."

HOTEL FANTASTIC SHAME ABOUT THE MANAGEMENT
"Having gone to the Sandos last October, and really enjoyed it, my sister, daughter, nephew (aged 2, but have paid full adult price for) and myself booked again in May to travel to the hotel in November this year. Upon reading recent reviews my sister found out that the hotel was going Adults Only from the 1 November 2011. My sister has since travelled to the hotel, in August, (this is how good we found it) and could not speak to the management when she was there as they were unavailable. The hotel had not informed the travel agency who we booked with either, if my sister had not noticed a review stating this, we would have turned up at the hotel and been sent packing (literally). She e-mailed them when she got home regarding the booking and had to wait 3 weeks for a reply which basically said we can not go! No apologies, suitable alternative or comensation was offered, they have basically washed their hands of it and we are left with the hassle of trying to sort it out with less than 5 weeks before we travel. How can such a lovely hotel with great staff be run by such callous and incompetant management, its a wonder they have any customers left if this is how they treat them."

clean smart hotel
"good standard of hotel , i would give the food a 3star rating good steak pie, very large smart rooms , large bathrooms , poor entertainment in the hotel, give the parrot show a miss for deff , hotel only 5 mins from the beach & only 5/10 mins max from the night life , so you can get a good nights sleep , reception staff very helpful , bar staff pritty dull ,except if you tip them you might get a smile , small pool area you would need to be up at 5am in july / august time to get a bed round it , all in all it is a very smart hotel for benidorm , would deff use this hotel again ,"

it s ok
"I went to this hotel with my husband and i have to say it s the resort more for older people! (we are in our mid 30th). The hotel is good, rooms are clean, spacy, the staff is helpfull. The food i would say more like 3 star hotel, some time plain and tasteless. But for the price you pay you cant wish for better!!
But for us it was the first and last time when we went to Benidorm! A lot of horrible drunk english people, who wear a lot of gold!"

"l have just spent 10 days at this hotel 2/4/10 to 01/05/10
the hotel was very clean the food was great with a great choice of food l found the hotel staff very good from the cleaner to the chef. bar staff did a great job and no one was waiting for long to get a drink . there was plenty of room on the terrace and around the pool with plenty of sun beds it was great not having to go put your towel out to ensure a place in the sun
my concerns are has follows
1. not sure if they could mantain this high standard if hotel was full
2, not sure if there would be enought room around pool if hotel was full
3 the hotel needs to look at the entertainer chap has quite a few people agreed with me he was a very sad chap
if he smiled we must have missed it
4 needs to improve night entertainment
but really the holiday was made brilliant because of the high standard at hotel

"We have just come back from sandos, we thought it was very clean and rooms were big, double bed each and 32" lcd tv, mini fridge, hairdryer. The breakfast was the best we had ever recieved in and AI hotel. The pool i thought was a let down due to size and location. Would of been nice to have tea/coffee in your room. On a good note evening bar you were served glasses instead of the plasic cups. Nice walk to new and old town, beaches were good and clean, plenty of night life going on if you like it. Would say tho that the hotel was mainly for the spanish guests which some of them were very rude and didn't hear of a queue. But all in a good hotel for a nice quick break, enjoy!!!!"
