We have finally arrived at our destination and are now enjoying an evening on the terrace in Casa Verde! So far we have settled in, unpacked, spotted some geckos and mountain goats and began to think about our exciting plans for the next fortnight! Tomorrow we are all looking forward to starting off our sun tans in the sun of ...
... went to the local restaurant 'strip' where the owners are all vying for your business as you walk by with giant open fridges displaying the dishes that are on their menus. They all do similar stuff we some variations but we already knew what we were after: a fish platter for Ali and Sue and a shellfish paella for Ian and me. We managed to get a table (that the waiter ...
... time via the road that kept us close to the beachfront, which took a bit longer but allowed us to take in the sights. It was pretty windy on the beach so we were all gently exfoliated by the fine, wind-blown sand in a pleasant way; the wind keeping us a bit cooler in the blazing heat. A simple picnic kept us going and late in the afternoon, slightly battling the wind, we packed up and made for home. After freshening up we took a drive through the local mountains, via ...
... but a beach they love) near Playa Santa Ana, close to Les Deveses. We armed ourselves with a variety of beach furniture and made camp on the totally uncrowded sands, with sand dunes and cactus as a backdrop, and were soon cooling off in the shallow Mediterranean water. Then broke out the picnic prior to doing some intense sun bathing. Ian and I played frisbee just on the ...
... having enjoyed a beverage out on our balcony drinking in our sensational view we would stroll the Paseo Maritimo Infanta Elena. Our time in Spain had evolved into a little bit of a Sangria tasting tour and there was no shortage of venues from which to indulge. It was so nice to sink into a comfy lounge at the front of a bar and watch the world go by as the changing light of the evening transformed Ifach rock and we reflected on our perfect days.

Historical Traveler Reviews Sandos Monaco Beach Hotel & Spa Benidorm
I would like to say this is a top class hotel, the staff and amenities are very good. I went in a party of 4 adults and we all had an excellent time.
Thank you to all at the Monaco
We"ve been before, and we"re going again. The staff,the food and the entertainment can"t be faulted.,its locality is ideal for the beach, the shops and the bars. Both Me and My Wife think the Hotel is great, and our two boys aged 8 & 6 can"t wait to go back.
the hotel monaco probably is the worst hotel i have ever stayed in i went on the saturday and actually enqured about an early flight home the food was not worth eating so i ate out and the beer was disgusting i dont think they could find any cheaper the pool was only big enough for about 10 people and the entertainment at night was of a very poor standard unless your about 120 years old i would not advise this hotel or anywhere in benidorm ever to anybody what a waste of money from marc.
Five Star Treatment
Stayed Jan 26th to Feb 5th 2004. My wife and I celebrated our honeymoon at the Hotel Monaco. We were welcomed by Jose at reception and from that moment we could not fault this great hotel. I had read it was uphill, I am bad on my feet before copious amounts of San Miguel but I can reassure everyone it is a gentle slope from the beach, which is four short streets away. If you turn left you are amongst the bars of the new town, if you turn right you are in the centre of benidorm and 5 mins from all the narrow streets with their shops, restaurants and bars. A superb location. The street is also traffic free! Food was a great selection everyday, the bar is open from 10am to midnight. Only plastic glasses until 6pm so beware if you've got the wobbles. Robert & Terri were great entertainment managers and the boss himself Pepe greated us with a cheerful smile. What can I say other than excellent, brilliant and we will return!
THANK YOU, COMING AGAIN
we visited the hotel monaco, between the 29th of november, and the 6th of december, we would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff at the hotel, from the cleaners, to bar and kitchen staff, to reception, and even pepe himself, the hotel has stuff for everyone, from pool and games room, to a tv and wuiet room for the elderly, the entertainment is second to none, and the food and drink like wise are of top standard, we would be honoured to visit you in the future if possible, and would just like to say a huge, huge well done to all staff, from wayne, marc, and rachel, from room 109, please reply

I went to this hotel in Feb 03 and what a great time was had by my entire family, a comfortable room,great staff and the food was of quite a high standard. the daily entertainment provided by the entertainment team kept all the family occupied for the duration of the hoilday. We have already booked a return visit for later this year. A real home from home.
