The Hotel Don Pancho is anchored one block from Levante Beach, with a clutch of bars, cafés and restaurants right outside. The centre of Benidorm is only 15 minutes’ walk away, too.
It’s not hard to see why this place bagged a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2014 – the staff get heaps of praise, there’s lots of entertainment, and its location puts bars, restaurants, and sands all on the doorstep.
Bedrooms here feature comfy beds and a warm colour scheme. They all come with a balcony or terrace, too.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all served here. Breakfast offers a full English and for lunch and dinner you can expect salads, meats, fish and pasta dishes. Just so you know, gentlemen are asked to wear long trousers in the evenings, and no shorts are allowed to be worn here. During summer, dinner is from 7.30pm 'til 10pm.
Twin rooms are bright comfortable rooms with traditional touches. They sleep up to two adults and one child in a double or twin beds and a camp bed for a child up to 12 years. There’s also a walk-in shower or a bath, and a minibar*.

We visited the hotel on the 19th September for 10 nights. We stayed in the Superior room on the 11th floor, the room was spacious with a brilliant view of the beach. We had bottled water delivered every morning and the maid did a brilliant job every day. The resturant food is good quality (very good breakfast) the only downfall is the dinner menu was repeated, we chose to eat out 5 nights out of 10. The pool area is small and you are not allowed floats or balls and received dirty looks if you made any noise really so we chose not spend much time round the pool area, we witnessed one couple made to feel very uncomfortable because their baby was crying, at times I felt uncomfortable in the hotel as me and my husband felt we were stared at by other guests as if we shouldn't be there, the majority of the guests have visited before and the atmosphere can feel quite cliquey as we are in our 20s and all the other guest are 70+. the entertainment at night was aimed at older guests there was nothing modern. The Dining room and reception staff are very helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel it was very good but to an older age group, unfortunately me and my husband wouldn't choose to stay here again.
Great stay at the don pancho
Just returned from the don pancho hotel in benidorm can't fault this hotel the staff were wonderful. Food was great with a good selection, the room was spotlessly clean as indeed was the hotel itself. But boy was this hotel dated it was like back in the sixties four star it is not. The refurbishment which starts soon, should have been done a long time ago, but once done it will be a first class hotel.More

After our disaster Cuban disaster in June thought we would try short haul & chose the Don Pancho. What a difference, Food you could eat, Clean Towels, Spotlessly clean Rooms, Friendly & helpful Staff the French Canadians would have palpations if they stayed here.
Still to be precise this hotel was everything our Cuban venture was not. Excellent food served by helpful & knowledgeable waiters. Rooms spotlessly clean & clean, quality towels every day. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This hotel is not for really for children as the average age group is around 55 years plus. The pool leaves a little to be desired but in reality the hotel is facing a major refurb due to start 1st November & the pool area is part of this. The things I did not like were the entertainment nights in the pool area. As all the rooms face the sea and overlook the pool any chance of retiring early on those nights was a no go. Entertainment was fine but I am sure that every guest is not a member of Blackpool Tower Dance Formation Team, maybe a little bit more like the one night there was an Illusionist may break the monotony of having to watch the five members of the dance team dancing the "Quick Step" to what ever dance tune the "Act" played. Otherwise fine.
Would I go back - definitely.
Would I recommend the hotel to others- definitely.
Maybe the management might look at providing a plug per scooter parking bay in their refurbishment, this may stop going down in the morning and finding that in order to charge their scooter somebody had unplugged yours leaving you to have to sit it out all day due to a flat battery. I never found out who twice unplugged mine? so if anybody was wondering who unplugged there's on the night of the 26th - it was me I unplugged them all except mine really late on.More

Holiday at the Don Pancho
We had an excellent time at this Hotel. Rooms were spotless. Food was very good. The Hotel Staff were very friendly. Drinks at the bar were cheaper than going outside. A very spacious top class hotel. We will be going back again. They also supply free towels & sponge mats to go on your sun beds. Waiter service in attendance at all times. All rooms are facing the sea.More
