... until than as the Russians where stronger certainly in the second half. The Belgians are now qualified for the 8th of the final as well as the Dutch team. As Michel had threatened us that we would drink only coca cola light all night if Belgium would lose, we were happy when he opened the bottle of champagne that we offered them from France to celebrate. Michel had bought a beautiful leg of Spanish ham ...
It's about a 20minute drive from our villa to the local beach of Arenal in Javea, once you arrive your greeted with lovely white golden sand, clear turquoise water and a beach front promenade full of small shops and restaurants. After being dropped down by bobby we found our way to a small stretch of the beach relatively clear ...
... then trying to converse in spanish to Josh, in a creepy whisper in your ear kinda way. I don't think he was actually gay but he definitely succeeded in making the meal a little awkward. After the meal he also continued to fill up shots for bobby to drink, in what seemed like an attempt to get him to sleep. All very odd. Once the bill was paid we headed back and caught some much needed sleep ready for the next ...
I'll be the first to admit, sometimes you just need a break from it all. Tash and I have been working very hard lately and coupled with other life events, we really felt like we needed a break. Happily, Tash's father had invited us along with her brother away for a vacation in Spain, arranged for his birthday by his wife. The journey there was frankly a little arduous, Tash had the unenviable task of driving us up ...
... town on the way to Paris and then back to the south of France on the way to Italy. But because we´d already spent quite a while in Spain and it was going to be too annoying and expensive to get to San Sebastian, plus all the crazy expensive places in France with no hostels available, I changed my plans so that after Barcelona I´d continue along the Meditteranean coast in France, stopping at Marseille and Nice and then head into Italy. I worked out that this would ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Madeira Centro Benidorm
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.
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
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.
Great hotel perfect location
Had a five day break last year hotel was fantastic very clean excellent location, reception staff very helpfull.
Try the montesol restaurant on top floor well worth a visit, have already booked my 2006 holiday.
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.
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,
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.
