Great at first but.......
Just back from 11 days at the Palm Beach Hotel. Great at first, clean, friendly staff, nice pool etc but then..... Arrived on the Saturday then on the Monday, to my utter dismay the building work from the surrounding sites started from 8am to 8pm! Remarked on this to the reception staff who commented that my tour agent should have informed me of the building work when I booked the holiday (they didn't, thanks Expedia!) Could things get worse? yeap they could and they did! The music from the restaurant which initially was played inside was moved to outside so that it could be heard half way down the hill! was played from 8pm to 12midnight and I thought down-graded the hotel considerably! ....... Then money was stolen from my room and when I enventually got to speak to the manager about it the night before I was to return home, he was less than sympathetic towards me! and frankly needed some customer relations training! I never retrieved my money and I come back to england with a bitter taste in my mouth!......I won't be going abck to the Palm Beach Hotel!!........
Stay away from this!
Just back from a weeks holiday at the Palm Beach Hotel. Nice Hotel, clean, staff pleasant, entertainment every night (might not be your cup of tea) but the major drawback is the building work. They are building new hotels at the back and to the left of the hotel. From 8am in the morning until 8pm in the evening there is a constant drone of diggers and lorries running up and down the hill. If you are unfortunate enough to be walking on the pavement when these lorries pass you, you get covered in dust. Although the hotel staff clean the tables and chairs on the terrace the have a constant film of dust on them. Apart from that and the walk up the hill the hotel itself is fine! My advice would be to stay away for a while.
Great Hotel Pity About The Hill
Just back from the Palm Beach Hotel, Benidorm 30th May 2004 spent a week there with my husband. We had never been to Benidorm before, we enjoyed our week and enjoyed staying at The Palm Beach Hotel. Rooms, food, amenities etc. all excellent, BUT it is for fit people, we would not advise anyone to go there if they have difficulty walking as the Palm Beach is up not one but three hills. If you don't mind this then it's worth a visit.
Also the lifts would be very busy in the height of the summer as there are only three and we were on the tenth floor so we found at meal times we stopped at literally every floor. (We are fit and active people, but felt sorry for a few older/heavier people we met as they struggled)
I agree that the hotel is on a bit of a hill, but after eating all the delicious food on offer it?s a great way to shed a couple of lbs.We will be staying here again this summer 04, that?s the first time we?ve ever stayed in the same hotel twice (must be good).When the taxi driver dropped us off from the airport his first words to us were ?YOU ARE STAYING IN A TOP CLASS HOTEL?, and we weren?t disappointed.FOOD: Great variations, clean with good service.BEDROOM: Small but adequate, Very clean, handy little fridge to keep you booze chilled.POOL: Looks small on the photos we seen but larger in real life. Plenty of sun beds (even if you get up late)Staff: Same as any Spanish hotel I?ve stayed in (they only smile when you tip them, in my case never)
everything was perfect we stayed oct 2002 for a week the food was excellent and put on about a stone each would not say ideal for children - at that time of year very little entertainment - if you want a bit of holiday luxury then stay here
What a Hill!
thought the Palm Beach was a lovely hotel. Very clean with daily maid service. food was good most nights. some staff more helpful than others. Only really bad point was the mountain you have to climb to get back to the hotel from the town centre. thank goodness for taxis and the complimentary bus service. I visited in Oct 03 so weather wasn't great but I still thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would holiday in Benidorm every year given the chance.
A Great Surprise
Booked a cheap week online and when we got there we did not believe it was our hotel at the price we paid. Once inside we were not disappointed either, staff and food superb, entertainment not too hot but it was February so what can you expect. If I was t go back to Benidorm would not stay anywhere else.
Just spent xmas at the Palm Beach Hotel.Had a great time.The hotel is fab,the staff are so friendly.The gala meal xmas day was out of this world.Yes it is on a hill but you can get free bus tickets from reception to and from town.Highly recommend it,will definately go back.
palm beech hotel is a little far away from the main stip of laventa beach and a good walk at night on quite streets. we were really lucky and got this hotel at a real bargain price so this wasnt really an issue but if you are paying full price it could be the staff are helpful bedrooms small hotel caters for older people over 60 at 40 we felt obvious in fact a rep felt we had to be one of his as you could only book online with his company to his surprise we had found a better deal independantly although we did book online.this was a nice place for the price but having been in benidorm on previous years it is not really a four star hotel although it does have a inside pool
Just spent a week at the Palm Beach, Benidorm - it is a fantastic hotel - everything anyone could wish for. The food is excellent. The rooms have heating and air conditioning. It is up a steepish hill, but that didn't bother us. Taxis are very cheap anyway (approx. 3 euros from centre of Benidorm to hotel). Staff are extremely helpful and pleasant. All in all, a wonderful holiday!

... and an elegant black dress. I am really excited to wear them when I get back home on Sunday! They are my own souvenirs to remember Alicante by in addition to all the photos I have taken. In the evening, my classmates, my professors and I all went to a restaurant in the Barrios to eat some tapas for our last farewell dinner. I am so happy to have become friends with amazing people including the staff, professors and other students ...
Hoy fuimos el
tram para ir a la playa de San Juan, una playa hacia 30 minutos en tram de
Alicante. La playa allí es mucho menos abarrotada, así que es un poco más
agradable. Todas las playas aquí son muy limpias y muy bonitas con relación a
la playa en Maryland. El agua es tan azul y claro que puedes ver casi todo
debajo del agua. Tomamos una siesta en la playa, y después, todos nosotros
estábamos refrescados. Para ...

The campsite we stayed in in Rugat was interesting for a number of different reasons. Firstly it had its own lake with a good selection of water fowl, a heathly population of red squirrels, and a workforce almost entirely British. Not sure how they all ended up in Rugat but it was a bit bizarre. ...
... Today, I visited the historic
and marvelous castle of Santa Barbara in Alicante. The castle is situated on a
small mountain 544 feet above Alicante, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. It
was one of the most fascinating places I have ever been. We reached the top of
the castle by riding an elevator. The temperature was much cooler than that in
the city because it was very windy. We were very fortunate because our ...
... tenía varias exposiciones para las exhibiciones temporales. La exhibición temporal que yo vi mostró varias monedas que fueron descubiertos fuera de la costa de Alicante. Esto fue mi exposición favorita porque las monedas expuestas eran de las diferentes épocas de tiempo y basado en la época de tiempo y lugar de origen, las monedas tenían diferentes formas y diseños. Le aconsejo a cualquier persona que visita Alicante que vaya a este museo y descubra su ...
