Checked into the HR Royal hotel after arriving in Benidorm (Levante Beach) using the local Bus service from Alicante Airport, I was amazed how easy it was. (40 minutes nonstop €9.00.)
There was a very warm welcome in reception and after doing all the paperwork I found myself on the top floor in a nice size room with a large double bed. (No sea views here) (No USB Sockets)
I Initially booked B&B only but after experiencing the impressive food on offer the next morning I upgraded to half board, when a chef asks you how you like your bacon and cooks it in front of you, it’s a big plus from me.
The bar area was quite busy, and waiters were serving drinks from the bottle of spirits at your table, it’s nice to see what you’re really drinking. (The old Spanish way)
A great team were running this bar, creating an atmosphere and great rapport with the clients (See Photo – Juan Antonio – Guillermo – Martin) All smartly dressed as one would expect from a four-star hotel bar.
They have an in-house entertainer with speakers big enough to play at Wembley and tonight there was a guest cabaret singer, very good although the voice was a cross between Freddy Mercury and my mother’s old whistling kettle.
The room service was very good, cleaned, bed made and fresh towels etc every day by happy staff all wearing a smile.
This is a very nice hotel well managed hotel not far from the beach and all the action, the whole place being spick & span and run by a very smart professional team.
A must stay if visiting Benidorm (Adults Only).
