Travel Blogs from Benidorm
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 ...
Final full day in Alicante region. A nice relaxed start to the day with a visit to Benidoleig municipal swimming pool, which was modern and had a sort of garden area with trees for shade. Ali, Sue and I spent a couple of hours there topping up our tans then we all drove South to Calpe for a seafood lunch. Calpe is a largish town with some pretty beaches a lots of high rise ...
Another hot sunny day started with the, by now, customary freshly squeezed orange juice to accompany a healthy breakfast of Greek yoghurt and cherries. Ok, plus a croissant or two. We headed in Xabia, a fairly large town with a long, deep beach that, as this is now high season, was pretty crowded. A few weeks ago it was more or less empty. After drinks at one of the many bars and restaurants along the promenade we headed off to the quieter 'private' beach we went to ...
Nice slow start to the day. Freshly squeezed orange juice made from local oranges with fresh mango and pineapple, with croissant, jam and coffee. Heaven! Shortly after we headed to a local bodega to taste some wine. Then had a coffee in the pretty vine covered garden of a local restaurant. I do like Spanish coffee. Back to Casa Cronk to pack a picnic then off to their 'private' beach ...
... Calpe we ventured into a neat little Indian restaurant set back from the promenade where we were treated to amazing service and arguably the best Indian meals we have ever enjoyed. As we strolled back along the Paseo Maritimo Infanta Elena the atmosphere was electric for the World Cup had just kicked off, we took the opportunity to join the crowd in an outdoor bar and soaked up the atmosphere, it would after all be rude not to…

Historical Traveler Reviews MedPlaya Hotel Regente Benidorm
All The Longterm English Pensioners Are Home From Home
Pensioners go there a couple of times a year for a month or so year after year.Friendly staff & hotel clean.Our sheets were changed 4 times in our 10 days.Good food & plenty of it.Great nightly entertainment. The only down side was its location--Benidorm--Yuk
The best hotel in benidorm
i have stayed in this hotel for 16 visits and who ever stays here and does not like it my advice is go stay at azoo this has everything you want good food clean great location if you want a quite time if you want it noisy a 5minute walk and its on your doorstep the staff bend over backwards to help the wife is disabled we had a problem with one of the wheels and the MANAGER took it and got it repaired thats what i call service
Having seen the previous reviews on the Hotel Regente my wife and myself stayed ther in January 2005, Having stayed in many Portland rated hotels and numerous others in the resort of Benidorm, a resort we visit on average four times a year. We found this hotel disappointing, although the decor was good we found the standard and variety of food on offer very,very disappointing. I would not personally recommend this hotel and certaining have no intention of a re-visit.
4th time at this Hotel
It gets better all the time ,since refurb good food great staff, very clean,
and very good position to sample all the nightlife.
Stayed in hotel Regente September 2004 with my boyfriend. Hotel and rooms were kept very clean. Pool was new and also kept clean. There was more than enough food and a good variety. Good location. Carlos the pool side assistant was very friendly and helpful - Pizza, San Miquel and Blue Lagoons were great !!! Would definately go again
hi just had a 2 week holiday at this hotel and it was great
all the hotel as been refurbished new swimming pool a loveley decking area for sunbathing
very nice and clean bedrooms staff very freindly

overall a great hotel
Had a good break
Returned to Benidorm after a five year gap, found loads of different things going on, Terra Mittica, Mundamar, both worth visiting.
The regente has not lost it's freindliness the staff from cleaner to director are excellent especially the bingo caller.

Going back next year!!
having just got back from benidorm 3/6/04. Am already looking to book for same holiday next year
The hotel regente in our opinion is excellent and we have been going to benidorm now for 8 years, it is clean, the staff are excellant, carlos who runs the kids disco is brill, the kidzone club run by helen, amanda and corrine is well run, hotel location is excellant, the pool is fab, food could be a bit better but you wont starve (could have a bit more choices for kids) and the rooms could do with being a bit bigger but have clean beds and towels every day. would def recommend
