After we had left the caravan we drove to Altea to stay with Michel and Nacir who had invited us . When we arrived Michel was already prepared to start cooking and the huge Gamba's were ready to be put with the fish on the grill, miammmi ! Michel loves cooking and put all his pleasure and energy in preparing our lunch while chatting away with lots of Belgian humor and of course a fresh sangria and some wine ...
... and locals and set our towels down ready to soak up more sun, with a promise of a quick dip in the sea. I, unfortunately wasn't quite liberal enough with the suntan lotion and burnt a little across my stomach, arms and back. I decided, after much deliberation to get in the sea which turned out to be a little chilly, ...
... guests including the hosts are involved to some degree in the drinks industry the fridges were always well stocked! We also enjoyed a dip in the rather nippy unheated pool, which was quite nice after an afternoon of baking in the sun. Later that evening, Duncan's wife Em had rather amusingly attempted to book a local restaurant using a mixture of english, french and spanish with a rather adamantly ...
... straight after work to stay at a TravelLodge to catch the early flight the next morning (requiring a 3:40am wakeup call) after the stay and a short hop to the terminal we met up with the rest of the family and caught the flight direct into Alicante airport. Once there we waited a while for luggage and met up with other members of the party, Tash's dad's friend Des was already waiting at the airport cafe, joined a ...
... up and joined four English tourists and our Spanish guide in an inflatable dinghy. The guide seemed to want to either give us an adventure ride or scare the pants of us by zooming along until we were seemingly about to crash into the rocks ahead and brake at the last minute. We got used to it after a while. We went to three different spots. The first was a cave which was rather dark and cold but pretty cool to explored. My snorkelling mask wasn´t really working ...

Historical Traveler Reviews 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
