This was my first time at the riudor and the last. I had a corner room on the third floor which was good. the room lovely, but the bathroom stunk of damp. the towels were changed every other day not every day. the staff I can`t fault at all. but when it comes to the food. (UNEDIBLE) the meat was that tough the knife wouldn't cut it. I just can`t carry on about the food it all depends if you like to eat crap. I was there for 14 days and I went down all 14 days for the evening meals but all I ate was the puddings. They have had a lot of cockroaches but you don`t want to see them coming out of the air-con in the restaurant. I didn't bother with breakfast same as every day so I ate out. I was only H/B thank goodness. ENTERTAINMENT Its a joke. they put the worst acts on they can find in Benidorm.Then every night picture quiz. the day time it`s water polo. darts french balls then pool. the two organisers one English the other Spanish just can`t organise anything, most of the guest were popping over the road to the ambassador because the entertainment was far better over there. I have stayed in 3star hotels in Benidorm but this is the worst by far.More
I was going to write my review praising the riudor, but after reading kitty147 review I can honestly say I totally agree with every word she said. The hotel is great yes bit dated so what its still better than ambassador which I have also stayed at we could see the sun bed run from our balcony, omg how embarasing felt embarased watching it..,,,, Plenty of sunbeds to go around any time of day Food lovely (unlike kitty im afraid to say I did scoff a bit) Comfy beds needed a mattress topper tho cant stand hard beds Nice deep pool no splashing kids! Rooms cleaned daily and clean towels daily Didn't use wifi im on holiday sod wifi Would I stay here again yes definatly Loved itMore
Best Hotel By Far
I always write a review of this hotel accurate also. Third time visit with my mum who was 75 and sister, we love the hotel, we find it friendly, spotless and always good service, this year we went all inclusive which i recommend, doesnt mean scoffing eveyrthing in sight as i am a healthy eater and it worked for me. i take my own kettle as i know there are none in rooms, i have to disagree with previous review totally, this is a three star hotel not five star, and i work hard also to pay for my holiday, im afraid some people will always find fault. there is a movement to save energy in Spain if you want linen changed there is a tag you leave on the bed, we had ours changed 4 times when there, it is untrue the linen is not changed. towels go in the bath, which all ours did every day and were changed, this is the case in many other hotels i have stayed in. Entertainment, Hose is new and he is doing a fantastic job, he works hard and some acts were rubbish but some good, Blues Brothers were great, go into other hotels and there all about the same, its Benidorm lots of other places to go if you dont like the entertainment, Benidorm Palace is great show. Food is good quality, restaurant spotless and airy and always plenty of seating, not queing, staff work very hard in there and are very pleasant. This is and Adults only hotel, how refreshing is that? this is why we also go here, the pool you can actually swim in and a small pool for older people to sit and chill in without getting dive bombed or splashed its great. The previous review mentioned the Ambassador, we have stayed there so i feel i can comment on this, its a good hotel but ; you que at the doors at 8.30 for them to open at 9? then they all run, yes i mean run for sunbeds look on u tube Ambassador run for sunbeds? you cannot get in the pool which is far too small for the massive hotel, eating time you cannot get tables and it is full of children, which as i said earlier i dont want anymore bin there and got the t.shirt dont want it anymore, so i applaude the Riudor for keeping this hotel for us that want Adults only. it disappoints me that people can say this hotel is not good, for 3 star you wont get better i have stayed in Ambassador and Presidente and this is best by far. location is great, few minutes to beach/shops/pubs/clubs everything you might want. we take things in our stride, make our holiday what we want it to be and always enjoy it here, you will not go wrong booking this hotel just enjoy Benidorm and if you want to be waited on hand and foot go to a five star and get that make your holiday a happy one and choose whats best for you, but believe me this hotel may not bow to your every whim but its good value 3 star hotel with people returning year after year... enough said oh and wii fi? ok in reception but who wants to be on phone when on holiday, leave them at home and forget everything as we used to in the days without them :)More

First and last visit a realistic review!......
I work hard to pay for my one holiday a year and take a leap of faith hoping that I have made the right decision. When I go away I tend to take reviews on trip advisor with a pinch of salt as I believe that different people have different needs and you must make your own mind up, but!......... This is the first time we have stayed in the Riudor hotel. Never again. Food is okay. Rooms very basic, but it's is only a base. Pool is fab........ Beds reserved by towels all day even though it's not apparently permitted. Wifi........ To say it is rubbish is an understatement. When I enquired with reception as to why is wasn't working, the guy rudely shouted well it worked for me when I tried the code. Then went on to tell me that it only works in the reception area still didn't work then so I ended up paying for access on the machines. Entertainment absolute rubbish, outdated and boring. I understand you can't please all of the people all of the time, but there was no life in the place, same old drudge. Didn't even provide water at meal times, you had to pay for that!.........â¬1.60 a time for a small bottle!.. But when there are a few of you it adds up over a period of time. Most hotels have a basic water dispenser. The waiters and waitresses work tirelessly. Take my hat off to them. Rooms - basic. Disappointed that there wasn't a kettle in the rooms, I stayed half board so couldn't make a cuppa during the day, so I was paying â¬1.60 for a tiny cup. I Don't expect the hotel to provide consumables, but a basic need would have been nice. Hiring a mini fridge? Apparently they do but when I enquired with reception to see if they hired irons as I had forgotten mine, they so no. I asked if they hired any other amenities? They said no!........ Bedding, I don't change my bedding at home everyday so it doesn't bother me that they don't here, but it wasn't changed at all during my stay. It states that it is changed regularly, it's not. Towels were supposed to be changed but again this didn't happen either, just folded up and put back on the towel rail........ My parents stayed opposite in the ambassador hotel. My advice, stay there, much better and friendlier hotel. I spent a bit of time over there and the staff there were much more friendlier even though I wasn't staying there. Better atmosphere all round.More

First time we have stayed at this hotel and couldnt fault anything. Location was central to everything in Benidorm. The fact that there was No children meant the pool area was very quiet and meal times were civilised. The Thomson rep was available every day and always most helpful with every query. Will definitely be returning next year.More
