... water lucky enough ! We had a great lunch and than attacked the gorgeous swimming pool of this beautiful house they had rented from an old friend. After a good swim M & N went for a little siesta of an hour while we stayed around the pool chilling. When they came back it was time for the famous "aperó" and we had fun slowly preparing while eating and drinking more food for dinner. Sitting at the ...

I, unfortunately wasn't quite liberal enough with the suntan lotion and burnt a little across my stomach, arms and back.

Once all seated and orders taken, the amusement began, cue some early birthday ribbing for Duncan who was very sensitive about it being his 50th birthday later in the week.

My original plans were to leave Javea after three days (on Friday) but because the bike took a while to get everything done, we still hadn´t posted back the stuff we won´t need anymore and also we booked a snorkelling trip for this day. I didn´t mind staying in Javea for longer, it was good to recover from all the crazy travelling and the cold and also to enjoy the wonderful villa and the beautiful Javea. We meet at the dive shop for the snorkelling tour at 1pm, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Presidente Hotel Benidorm
Just returned from holiday in Benidorm staying at the hotel Presidente. We have been to Benidorm 5 times and this was the best hotel we have stayed in so far. The hotel was spotless and the rooms are lovely, shower was the only down side and there wasn't the usual pack in the bathroom ie shower cap, toothbrush/paste, comb, etc. Shampoo and Bath Gel were provided. The food was good, breakfast was always plentiful, lots to choose from and always a bottle of bubbly to made a bucks fizz to start the day!! I don't eat meat but I found enough to eat - I loved the salad bar always looked fresh, and well presented. The sea food buffet was amazing - would also recommend the soup yum yum!!! Be warned the resturant manager was a bit of a grump! you were in big trouble if you turned up for dinner without your dinner card, even if you had your key he would still insist you go and get your card.
The entertainment was second to none in the UK night club which is on the ground floor of the hotel. The bar staff were really friendly and efficient. The hotel is close to all the other clubs and bars.
It was our wedding anniversarywhilst we were away, the hotel send a bottle of bubbly up to our room which we through was a nice touch!
On the down side from thursday onwards there are a lot of 'Hen and Stag' parties arriving in Benidorm (most leave on sunday) which can be a bit over powering and scary, some groups can be entertaining to watch most of them wear zany outfits, but they make a lot of noise in the streets and bars and in the hotel, banging doors at all hours of the day and night, and at the pool singing and chanting when they start drinking after breakfast (but then it was cup final day). I would suggest you stay in the hotel at the weekend and enjoy their enterainment, which in our case was the best show in Benny! Watch out for Chrissy Rock she is so funny!
Having said all that we didn't see any trouble and it didn't bother us too much.
We enjoyed our stay at Prenidente and would certainly stay there again!
A great hotel
The presidente has always been mentioned by all our family and friends as a grand hotel albeit a bit old fashioned,well my wife and I have stayed in almost all of the popular hotels in Benidorm over the past 25 years and this rates as one of the most pleasant,The place is spotless,the staff brilliant,especially the cocky maitre d hotel in the restaraunt,speaking of which although the food was good, the organisation could be improved by a bit more flare from the chef,food can become samey if you are on full board.
After dinner it was pure heaven to sit outside on the front terrace sipping a coffee or drinks watching the world scurrying off to the shows,which brings me nicely to the new show bar downstairs, entertainment is of the better than average hotel style,and the seating is very comfortable, iv`e just booked up again,

hotel cant be faulted,good food ,lovely good sized rooms ,kept nice and warm ,which was needed because out side the sun was hot but a cold wind was blowing so it was nice to come back to a room that was warm . the staff in all areas were very friendly . would go back anytime we also went into fosters bar a good cup of tea and food served .all in all a good holiday would recomend it to any one give it a try
i have been going to the presedente for new year for the past 3 years its great ,they have a gala meal you get waited on and plenty to drink all free you get a fun bag with hat mask,streamers,blowers etc: its really good and cant wait for this year, a must for every one,i live in the isle of man and all the bars you have to pay to get in even your own local ,and then what is there? you struggle to get a taxi home it cost you double the money,no problem in spain plenty of cabs and cheap, and of course the sun what more can you ask for. sorry cant send photos its works computer.
Smashing location, along with a wonderful and perfectly acoustic reception area. Only complaint would be toward the concierge's rather stringent overnight guest policy, which did cause some concern amongst some and led to me missing five-toes.
All round, a wonderful family venue.
Lovely Hotel and Location
I've just returned from the Presidente and thought it was great. The location was great - with a cheap cafe across the road which did yummy baguettes, a lively disco/pub Loch Ness is also just across the street. About 5 mins away is a great lil pub called the Scotsman (and they are actually scotsmen). Stardust is opposite end of the street from Scotsman and the first couple of acts were great (Al B Senoir - comedian, timeless/words + music - musical acts). The hotels food is good aswell, a wide range to cover every tastebud. The rooms was normal sized, had 4 single beds (althought this varies from room to room), a small tv, safety deposit box, large wardrobes and a great balcony (your better off asking for a sunny terrace than a pool view). Staff couldnt be more helpful, efficient or pleasant especially the dining room and reception staff. Hotel entertainment isnt that good but with the superb location, all night entertainment is just minutes away. if you want any info or anything, email me and i'll help as much as i can.
Absolutely first class hotel. Very clean and nicely decorated. We had a large family room with an enormous balcony. My only dissapointment is that the President are now stopping 4 bedded rooms... Staff very helpful from receptionist to waiter. Clean swimming pool, with lovely sitting areas. Excellent buffet style meals, which are always being replenished. Very, very child friendly, would go back in an instance!!!!
My family has been going to the presidente hotel for the last 7 years and we are going again in september this year.
food,accommodation,pool,and the staff are excellent we could not fault any thing about the hotel we have tried other hotels Like last year we booked the Tropicana Gardens for 2 weeks all inclusive we lasted 4 days would not recommend this hotel to anyone we got transfered to the presidente for the rest of our hoidays So if you want a excellent hotel stay in the Presidente
