Historical Traveler Reviews Dynastic Hotel Benidorm
10 of us went on a hen party weekend. Upon arriving at the hotel we were impressed by the cleanliness of the hotel and the rooms themselves. All very modern fittings. The entertainment was rubbish but we made our own! Staff in the bar worked very hard to serve you quickly but sometimes were a bit understaffed. Overall we enjoyed the weekend but would not recommend Benidorm as a holiday as the place is very dirty and extremely built up. Upon arriving at the airport on the way home to buy duty free we discovered that two our our party had all of their money taken from their purses (approx £120) having left their purse in the room on the last night. Would thoroughly recommend that you use a safe. Bit of a let down to the end of a great weekend.
Watch out for people stealing cash and items from your rooms
We went there on a hen weekend and we have appeared to have various items go missing from our rooms which seemed parculiar. Money stolen out our purses, various creams went missing. They appeared to rifle through our clothes to see what was in them. It also appeared that the reception could open your room door remotely. The man at reception was awful.
Not Up To Expectations Of A 4 Star Hotel
My husband a i stayed here for a week in Feb,an experience not to do again.The bar and hotel was full of noisy Northern folk who could only drink all day and make a considerable amount of noise.At the weekend you are invaded by the Spanish folk who take over and again make a lot of noise.It is not in a very good position and unless you drink a lot and swear as well i would give it a miss.Where it gets the 4 star rating i do not know,2 would be a bit nearer the mark.Holiday quite a lot but this is a no in our books.
Lovely at the right time of year!
We (my and husband and son aged 7) stayed here in the February half term. The hotel was very clean, staff were friendly and was very quiet considering. Our room was lovely and spacious although the English channels on the tv did not work, after speaking to the receptionist 3 times it was finally fixed and a bowl of fresh fruit was left in our room to say sorry. We went all inclusive and had no complaints about the food and drinks, although it must be a nightmare in the summer. The entertainment throughout the day consisted of skittles, rifle shooting (over 18 only), pool competitions and darts. The evening entertainment consisted of bingo, wild west party (for adults with drinking games)flamenco dancers and music until 12. I do agree with one comment about the indoor pool being closed in the afternoon 3-5pm especially when there is no entertainment on at these time, and also we were told that we had to wear swimming hats! (my husband has more hair on his body than on his head). The hotel was full of English people which was nice as the entertainment was in English.(they translate from spanish if there are any spanish holidaymakers) Our last day they opened the piano bar (there was a note on the door to say no children allowed)and the hotel became over run with Spanish who all thought they owned it!! Overall its a lovely hotel if you go at the right time of the year!!
We stayed at Dynastic for xmas 2005 the room was lovely (family room)although other people said twin rooms were small, the staff were also lovely but entertainment was terrible especially for xmas, bingo and reps playing games near every night. Nothing between 3pm and 5pm to do for the kids especially. Pool shut between this time while outside swimming club came in and used it, i was discusted by this and complained as some nights when it re-opened swimming club still using it and hotel guests were having to use one lane for kids and one lane for adults which is terrible when your paying alot of money for xmas period. The drinks at the hotel are also the weakest ive ever had in a hotel and people were complaining alot about this, one woman who asked for stronger local drink was told she had to pay, she ran a hotel herself and was disscusted so much so she had a meeting with depoty director but got no satisfaction. We found this hotel has nice rooms etc but guests do not get most from it, pool shutting at peak times when people want to use it and 8 year old daughter saying she was bored done it for us. Main entertainment area to small for amount of people there, piano bar was also shut over xmas period but had xmas party for spanish firm in there. We have stayed in many 4 star hotels and i would not stay here or reccomend it again, i would reccomend Flamingo oasis, did tell staff i was putting it on internet.
Dynastic not Quite fantastic - but good
We stayed at the Dynastic for a week in Middle November 2005. Location is quite good being about 5-7 minutes walk from beach and very close to lots of shops, bars, etc.
Hotel is very modern and the room was large, clean and comfortable. Good to have a fridge and the bathroom was roomy and very chic. Staff were excellent throughout and could not do enough.
We stayed all inclusive but price was so cheap we ate out a few times at night and every lunchtime. Overall though the food was fairly typical. Maybe not enough hot food variety in evening but no real complaints. Entertainment - standrd and don't expect too much but good fun if you like that sort of thing.
Lounge area at reception is very comfortable but basement bar / lounge was full of plastic chairs and tables that resembled a cheap bus station waiting room. Could not understand this after the quality elsewhere.
Pool area very small - must be awfully busy in summer. Indoor pool / gym not signed very well in hotel and as a result underused. Lesson is to go searching!
No real drawbacks - although there is a problem with lifts when it rains!
Happy to recommend this but it's not the Flamingo Oasis!
Be prepaired for the Spanish...
Stayed at the Hotel Dynastic from the 16th to 23rd of July.
The Hotel was modern and very clean, the staff weren't very fluent in English thus we had to resort to hand signals to get across our point at times. At the time we stayed, there were NO ENGLISH PEOPLE staying at the Hotel, the entertainment was mostly Spanish based, however around the pool area durind the day the music being played was mostly British and American tunes, the pool area itself was very clean and there were plenty of sun parasols to go around. The rooms were large and spotless, and the shower was the best i had ever had in a hotel, the maids cleaned our rooms everyday around ten. The selection of food was impressive however the eating hours (8-10am, 1-3pm, 8-10pm) were short and didn't alow for a slow and relaxing meal. The evening entertainment was for children mostly despite it starting at 11pm some nights, which wasn't ideal for young kids. There were only two lifts for the main building so i would request a low floor. Overal the hotel was nice and pleasing however i would recomend other 4* hotels such as the flamingo oasis or levante club.
spotless hotel, rooms great, lovely meals and really nice resturant staff. a few teething problems but nothing that wasnt fixed quickly. i would definatly recomend this hotel and will hopefully return.
YOU CANT GO WRONG
The Dynastic had only been open for 3 weeks when we arrived but what a pleasure it was to stay there.Rooms were obviously spotless but plenty of room and the best shower i ever had in an hotel.There was a problem with the air con in our room but they found us another room.Food was good and plentiful and the occasional special request was no problem for the chefs. Pool area very good and staff very helpful. A couple of minor teething problems were soon resolved. Some discreet work going on while we were there to finish off bits and pieces but nothing to complain about.Entertainment was ok,but not brilliant. The Dynastic is an excellent hotel to stay in and close to the beach and we had a super weeks stay.
brand new hotel with teething problems(lifts breaking down, poor entertainment ie friday night BINGO!!!) food was okay, good location but not on par with rival hotels within a stone throw. Was clean and tidy but had to queue at the bar one person serving whilst it was 3 deep seemed to be the norm. as I say it was clean and handy but below par by a bit for a four star.

... relaxed pace. Finisterra an absolute must, everyone should visit the end of the World. The fabulous people, Isabel whom we had spent time on the first Camino and Kari who between them got us to Porto, not forgetting the meals and copious amounts of wine we shared. Susanne, Rita, Vania and Marcus with their wonderful youth, determination and exuberance made it a joy to meet and walk with them, a never to be forgotten memory of singing Stand by me at the top of our ...
Shorter driving days now we're virtually in Southern Spain, so we were in Benidorm by lunch. Saw our first Big Black bull on the side of the road. There are loads around, but that’s the first we’ve seen this trip and Penny has them on her mind as she’s just been reading about the Brandy factory and the Bulls used to advertise it (think we’ll be visiting and sampling some when we get to Cadiz).
... that it was very strange. I also saw a rock in the middle of the sea which reminded me of a sinking ship. We walked up to the end of the beach. At the end, there was a tiny beach that had no waves but it was guarded by a lifeguard. I didn't understand why that beach even needed a lifeguard. We walked up to point where I could see lots of tall buildings. We went ...
... a tram going past the beach every once in the while. The water temperature was quite warm, So I was able to stay in the water for quite a long time. Luckily, it wasn't windy, so dad and I were able to play soccer on the beach. When we got hot playing soccer, we jumped back into the water. There were many fish in the water. The most of them were a decent size. I was so exited and tried to catch one but it ...
... forward to see the awesome exhibition. However, we were able to see the giant yacht. After that, we tried to find the entrance of the path that led to the castle which was located on top of a mountain in the middle of the town. We finally made it to the entrance of the path after searching for a while. At the entrance, Mitsuki nearly stepped on a snake. We started walked up. It was a steep walk but we kept walking. We walked along the the wall. There was ...
