With a supersized atrium and a lagoon-like pool, the Melia Benidorm proves bigger is better.
The Melia Benidorm is right in the centre of the resort, only a 10-minute walk from Levante Beach. Vines and flowers adorn the atrium’s pillars and balconies, mixing natural and modern themes.
Thatched parasols and palm trees line the pool terrace if you’d rather cool off at the hotel. You’ll have three bars to choose from, two of which stay open until late at night.

Stayed again for 9 nights. Room comfortable & spotless. Bedding changed regularly. Staff all very friendly. Pool areas immaculate. Breakfasts were tremendous with a wide variety. We were bed/breakfast only but some good restaurants in area. Bar expensive. Free beach towel hire with a small returnable deposit. More
The hotel reception is very nice. Plenty of plants and a seating area. The rooms are ok. No tea making. The food is the big disappointment. Well below average. The veg is cooked to death,stringy fatty beef,generally poor and tasteless. Not topped up so run out about 8.30. The breakfast was no better eggs floating in oil undercooked sausage and bacon. Toaster needed 3 times through to lightly toast bread. Waited 15 mins for a English breakfast tea bag. They allow pool bed saving. All in all a disappointment. More

Expected better from a MeliÃ¡....
Stayed for a week over Easter with family. Hotel appearance is generally good. Lovely pool area with plenty of sunbeds. Indoor and outdoor pools are well maintained. Rooms are nicely decorated and comfortable. Fresh bedding and towels every day. Maids are very conscientious. Food is the worst part of the hotel. Breakfast was generally ok - pastries, fruit, yoghurts and cooked breakfast options. The cooked breakfast was often unappetising and very oily. Evening buffet was repetitive, again cold and hot options. Cold options were good, hot food was generally bad cuts of meat in oily sauces. Often was only left with chips to eat. Ive seen better food in 3* hotels. We stayed half board so can't comment on the lunch. Buying drinks in the hotel is also very expensive considering prices in central Benidorm e.g 1 coke is â¬2,20. Hotel entertainment was very limited and poor quality. Bad tribute acts and the rest was mostly child orientated. Hallways could be loud at night. Rooms are not very well sound proofed from the hallway or above rooms. The lifts in the hotel are annoying and you are often left waiting a long time for them to come, we were on the 6th floor so relatively low. Can't imagine what the wait was like for those staying on the top few floors (there were 20+). Reception staff are friendly but not helpful. They took our bags on arrival to be sent to our rooms and never arrived. We went down 90 minutes later and collected them ourselves. We also asked on numerous occasions for more coat hangers which never arrived. Hotel is in good location for those wishing to stay out of the main centre of Benidorm but be close enough to walk to beach and promenade (15-20 mins walking). To conclude: the outdoor space and general decoration of hotel is amongst the nicest I've seen in Benidorm. Food and entertainment needs major improvements. Good location.More

Excellent for an Easter Break
Situated just far enough from the beach to be quieter at night, but still only a 10 minute walk to the 'action'. I was surprised just how many Spanish people were staying at the hotel. It does not feel 'Spanglish' which, for me, is a bonus. The reception area is airy and impressive, with plenty of seating and excellent WiFi. The check in desk is looking a little tired, but otherwise as you would expect of a 4* hotel. There are separate banks of elevators for each of the two towers. The wait during busy times and on higher floors is lengthy. The rooms are well appointed and perfectly clean. Hot water is reliable and the beds comfortable. My bathroom had some chipped enamel on the bath, some unsightly plumbing around the radiator and a broken balcony door catch in the bedroom. A little more than I would expect, but not terrible. Food is buffet style. There is plenty of it with only occasional waits for refilling. In my opinion, breakfast is a better offering than dinner. Although, neither sitting offers 4* food. Cold food is of a better standard than hot dishes. Desserts looked delicious but tasted lack lustre. The food, in my opinion, is not good enough to consider going full board and is the weakest part of the hotel experience. I would have liked water to be offered free at dinner as an alternative to the (by Benidorm's standards) expensive drinks list. Staff are excellent and polite. Entertainment is limited. It appears to be kids clubs until 10:30pm, then some adult entertainment. I went to a couple of events - they were nothing to write home about. A pianist plays, in the reception area, 3-4 nights a week. It is a pleasant place to sit and talk over a few drinks. The pool is, probably, the best area of the hotel. Nicely landscaped with a good selection of loungers and kept really clean. Although the hotel was full, we never had a problem finding a pool-side spot. The hotel boasts a gym, but if you are a dedicated gym bunny you will find it disappointing. It is situated close to the indoor pool. Hot, humid and poky, it amounts to a clutch of exercise machines and a CD player. All-in-all, I would consider this hotel again if I revisit Benidorm.More
