Hotel Ambassador Playa I  

This hotel puts you close to Benidorm’s beach and clubs, and comes with a pair of pools, too.

The Ambassador Playa has a prime spot just a few minute's walk from Levante Beach. Benidorm’s bars and clubs are on the doorstep, too, but the hotel also has 4 bars of its own, all with nightly entertainment.

There’s a pair of pools – one of them is covered in winter – and a buffet restaurant that’s just as good at serving paella and fresh seafood as it is curries and chips.

Enjoyable holiday

We have just come back from this hotel. Booking in was very swift. The room was dated but very clean. The beds were hard but we got used to them. We overlooked the entrance and was opposite to John and Joseph's which could get quite noisy on the early hours sometimes. Wasn't too bad though. The air conditioning was very good. We had clean towels everyday. Put them in the bath to be changed. The food here was lovely and not a bad choice either. Family in the Flash were disappointed with their food. We found the restaurant manager to be very pleasant and we could see him helping people with their food and seats. We were told off by him though for using our own pop one day. We totally forgot about not being able to as we had it with us after going shopping. We had to laugh as he said the cameras bleeped to alert him when someone did that. It was actually one of the waiters who went to bleep to him on the sly lol. But we did accept we were in the wrong ;). The pool area was adequate for our needs and the explorers pub was excellent and good value. One small gripe (my husband got more irate) was that when they locked the doors at night our key card didn't work and we had to press the buzzer quite a few times to get in and when we got to the room it wouldn't work again. The discount you get in the western bar, Morgans and explorers by showing your card is a good idea and much appreciated. Thank you to all the staff and our cleaner Elaina for an enjoyable holiday More

good stay

Just stayed for a week here and had a lovely stay. I agree the food was lovely and the staff were friendly. We stayed in Ambassador 1 and were facing the road above the hotel bar which could be noisy. The rooms were small and found the single beds were hard but that is just a personal opinion. The hotel was spotless and very central for everything/More
