Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Madeira Centro Benidorm
Great Hotel, Best Location
We have stayed in Madera Centro in mid July 2006 for two weeks. We highly recommend this hotel as it's one of the best places to stay in Benidorm.
Superb location only 2 min walk form the Levante Beach from all the nightlife and shops.
Do book on full board basis as the food choice was the best ever as well - it's had more of the fish-dishes (seaside, obviously!) but was plenty of meat as well. Huge choice and different every day. Enormous amount of fruits and sweets also. One day we have missed lunch by 10 minutes and have been refused entry so we went to McDonalds wich was total **** compared to the hotel's restaraunt. By the way if you decide to get a same choice meal as hotel's one elsewere in Benidorm it'll cost you about 90 euros per 2 persons.
Room size is all right, had a balcony with nice views, air con everywhere including rooms was fine and very-very helpful as it was +34C, pools (2 of them) were ok, jacuzzi etc we did not used much as we have spent most of the time on the beach.
Service is not the friendliest ever, but very-very helpful as all the Spanish people. Entertainment we never checked out as we went out to town centre every night. The good thing we can say about it is it's finished at around 12.30 a.m. so you get a good night sleep without earplugs everyday.
Once again, great hotel, best location.
Hotel madeira centro
madeira centro hotel was excellant staff were very nice and helpfull the rooms were a go od size and very clean rooms were cleaned evey day pool was small but nice they had a spa tub which i thought was agood idea i loved it it was very central the only thing i did not like was the food as there was a lot of fish on the menu and the dishes that were out we did not know what they were as it had no discription to what it was that was the only thing i can say wrong about the hotel
Great Time at the Madeira Centro Hotel
Just back two days from the Madeira Centro (June 2006) and found this Hotel to be of a very high standard, we have been to 4 star hotels before but found this the best by far.
Food was excellent and plenty of variety to choose from, and any amount of it. Hotel reception spoke excellent english and found them to be very helpful. When we arrived we were given two double rooms which were lovely but did not have a balcony, we spoke to reception and requested rooms with balconys and within a few days when rooms became available we were moved. Be sure to request a room with a balcony when booking as they do have rooms without balconys. Hotel in excellent position, turn right for old town and left for new town both within a few minutes walk. Hotel very clean one downside would be the pool is very small but we went to the beach so this didnt matter.
Last week apparently was the Spanish holidays to we didnt stay in the hotel at night for the entertainment as it was catered for the spanish, but with the new town only five minutes walk we headed there at night which was brilliant. A must is to go to the Stardust and Zodaic Bars.
Booking tomorrow for June 2007.
Great hotel perfect location

Try the montesol restaurant on top floor well worth a visit, have already booked my 2006 holiday.
Fantastic hotel, Rubbish food!
Just returned from staying at the Medeira centre hotel this week end. The hotel is beautiful and very modern.The rooms are very clean but not as big as the rooms at the Marina . Fantastic views over benidorm and a great sun trap as the rooms all face the sun all day.However the food to be honest was rubbish apart from the breakfast which were lovely.We have all stayed in many hotels in benidorm including the marina,The Pueblo and the Rosamar, all several times. The food at the medeira did not come any where near the others. There was very little choice unless you are a big fish fan. Only ever one hot meat dish per meal time compared to several fish dishes. On several occassions the only meat dish on offer was Bulls tail which resembled 6" sections of human spinal cord in gravy , I jest not! Really not nice at all to see let alone eat. Loads and loads of deep fried frozen food including fish fingers , chicken nougats and fritters most meal times. Not really what i would call 4* food at all. This is a real pity 'cos the hotel is good and the location is great for the beach and the old town which is vibrant at night. We only popped our heads in to the concert lounge but it was alwasy the same old spanish dancing every night. There might have been more on offer in there but we didnt see it posted. If your going to stay at this hotel then i hope you find it different as we did give this feed back to the hotel directly, just be prepared though. To end on a more positive note though, the staff were very friendly and helpfull and the dining room staff were very efficient and polite.
Disappointment at the Madeira Centro.
We have just returned from two weeks at the Maderia Centro on oct 14. We had read the previous reviews and were looking forward to a really good holiday at this hotel, how disappointed we were. The rooms were spacious and very clean, as was the hotel in general. We were on the thirteenth floor and had excellent views over Benidorm. The pool area has fifty sunbeds for a hotel with twentyone floors, not a problem, as its in shade from the building opposite for the main sunbathing hours of the day between twelve and three o"clock. The rest of the time will be spent moving around the pool area with your sunbed chasing the sun, everyone else goes to the beach!. We arrived on a friday and this is the Gala night in the restaurant which was excellent, but after that it was downhill. The food was pre-packed convienence food and while the quality was good the choice was limited, several fish dishes every night without fail became more than a joke. On several occasions we had to eat out, and if you have children there was little if no choice for them, except chips. There are five lifts in this hotel including a panoramic one, take everything you need when you leave your room as the wait for the lift at peak times (meals ect) will drive you crazy. There is no entertainment to speak of, but with so much on offer outside its not a problem. In summarising, this hotels location cannot be beaten, and if you are really not fussy about the kind of food you eat then its the place for you. We would not return as our money would be better spent elsewhere.
Hotel madeira centro
returned from the hotel 22 sept. My wife and I were delighted with all aspects of this place lovely and clean good size rooms . the outdoor pool is more for cooling of than swimming but the up side is it stops the lilos and jumpers. I wouldnt recomend for a family other than couples with very young children but for couples who like a good quality hotel two minutes from the beach and quality shops, excellent We will certainly return to this hotel
i tried to post a review about this hotel last year but it was not available.the madeira centre is without doubt one of the best hotels in benidorm.it is in a great location,ideal for those with walking difficulties.it is as others have said,close to the beach and the old town.every room is facing the sea.the standards are extremely high in all aspects of the hotel.it is reasonably priced in the direct brochure and we have booked again for this july.the only downside is that it is not in the direct brochure for 2006 as i have already tried to book it.
Just returned from the madeira centro, Benidorm, we had a weeks stay here and enjoyed everyminute, the hotel is situated near the triangle, turn right on leaving the hotel and your in the old town with great shops, bars and wonderful tapas bars, tapas alley is a must. Turn left and with in a few minutes your into the new town, where there are tons of bars, some having excellent entertainment, be it singers, comedians, shows, theres something for everyone, Beach is about 2 mins away by foot,
The hotel itself is a very good 4*,the rooms are large , we had a room on the 17 floor with great views of the old town, 2 double beds, tv minibar, plenty of wardrobe space, very nice bathroom and again an excellent size. Good toiletrys too. The room was spotless, Bar area nice, restaraunt very good every day, food always hot, with plenty of choice, this hotel has a nice indoor pool with small gym, and toning tables which are free, there is also a beautican, sunbeds, sauna and turkish bath.
The entertaiment was mainly geared up for spanish guests, as most of the guests are spanish, kids club fantastic, young lady spoke perfect spanish, english, italian, french and a few other languages. All kids loved her and they were kept busy three times a day,
All in all a great hotel, spotlessly clean, and would definatly stay here again
Should be in the top 10
Just returned from a 4 night stay at this hotel. We stayed on half board basis which includes breakfast and either evening meal or lunch, it's entirely up to you. All meals are buffet style with a wide range of hot and cold dishes.The rooms are very clean and spacious with individual climate control ours had 2 very comfortable double beds. All balconies are South or West facing, the higher floors have great views over Benidorm and the bay. The staff were very freindly and helpfull, location is ideal, especially for disabled, being close to the beach on the levante side of the "old town".The only complaint we had was the entertainment at night was pretty basic, and some road works outside the main entrace which is supposed to be ongoing until June.
