... for dessert. We went to a beach cafe that we had discovered earlier which had a huge variety of crepes available. Sverre had a chocolate banana crepe and I had chocolate coconut. They were much bigger than expected and the chocolate in it was superb! Not too expensive either. We spent Sunday organising and packing for the next part of our trips. Sverre still wasn´t sure when he´d be leaving but wanted to be organised for when the time came. I was leaving the next ...
... another early night since we were still catching up on sleep and getting used to the new time zone. In the morning, we left at 9am on the bike all the way to Valencia where Sverre had organised to get the luggage rack fitted. I joined him mainly so I could check out what Valencia was like and see if I wanted to stay there. The roads were a bit confusing, so we took a few wrong turns and therefore it took a bit longer than expected. I usually get ...
... day if I tether my iPad to it. I bought the card, activated the roaming plan, got it all set up - but Personal Hotspot is disabled so I can't connect my iPad to it at all. So it seems that neither the Vodafone Italy SIM, nor the Orange Spain SIM will let me connect my iPad through my phone for a reasonable cost. It's not the end of the world, but having my iPad online makes things like this blog a lot easier once I'm on the road without easy access to WiFi. Oh ...
... white haha. It was in and around 28 degrees for the whole time we were there. We went for food in The Emerald Isle and The Abbey most days. We headed into Town to the Carnival and the markets other days. We went to the beach and the huge shopping complex with Sarah one of the days, that was ******* awesome. We met Karina, Brian and there daughter Emily in The Emerald Isle one night. We got on ...
... cashing. "Noh" he said, then something in Spanish. We looked at him the way a startled cat looks when you catch them up to no good. He came out from behind the desk and showed us the take-a-ticket machine. We took a ticket, number 12. The display said 11. He walked back behind the desk, pressed the buzzer, then took the ticket from my hands and only then could we continue. We filled in some forms, thanks to Word Lens that meant we knew what information to put ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel RH Princesa Benidorm
Short and sweet..lovely hotel..close to everything..good food..lovely rooms..very peacefull..helpfull staff..the best gym i have ever seen in a hotel. would we go again..Yes Please.
It is a not too new tower hotel at 300m from Old-Benidorm and 700m from the beach, mostly visited by British people from 45+. Less suited for families due to lack of youth amusement. Standard rooms are small (25m2) and have a terrace. Elevator capacity is insufficient at peak moments. There is a small swimming pool with insufficient beach chairs, too close to each other. With payment one has thermal pool, whirlpool, sauna, big fitness (4€/2h) and internet (4€/h). We only had animation at evenings (singing, dancing, magician) in the bar and for older people.
we are just back from a one week stay at the Princesa - hotel was ok clean and tidy. reception staff were pleasant and spoke good english. the food was just alright - catered more for the spanish, the entertainment was also geared towards the spanish amd for the older age group. the pool area was never that busy and there were plenty of sunbeds, however it is small and you have to go down steps to get to it. drinks including wine in the hotel were reasonably priced. just down from the hotel there are a few places where you can have a snack or drink at very good prices, my favourite was the pasty shop. the places we went to for nightly entertainment were the Wheeltappers and the Town - there is so much nightlife in Benidorm for all age groups you would never get bored. If we go back to Benidorm we wont stay at this hotel again even though its location is good. during out stay we had a look at other hotels and found the Don Pancho very nice and the entertainment was a lot better - if we can afford to we will stay here.
I went to Benidrom with a couple of friends for a week and booked the hotel on the internet. The Princesa was categorised as 4 star but I couldn't find any reviews so I wasn't too sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised.
Our second stay
My wife and i stayed at the Hotel Princesa March 2005.This followed an earlier stay in November 2003.We booked our hotel because we liked it so much first time around.Hotel rooms are excellent.Chamber maids are ultra eficient.As are all the staff,Reception,Bar,and dinning room staff.The cleanliness of the hotel can also be described as excellent.The food is very good.The entertainment is quit adequate.We found the cost of drinks in the hotel cheaper than drinking in the English bars in the new town.To conclude we have stopped in many hotels in Benidorm but we intend to return here again.
I stayed at this hotel in June 2004. The reception staff were excellent .However, the bar staff tended to give priority to serving Spanish guests at the expense of guests from other countries. The evening entertainment, or what little of it there was, was aimed at a Spanish audiance. The catering was excellent as was the accomodation.
My wife and I are in our sixties but even we felt too young for the pace of life in this hotel. I would not recommend this hotel to guests who are not into bingo and flamenco dancing.
We have stayed in Benidorm for our autumn break for the last 3 years.
staying at the Princesa for the last 2 years the food, room, staff, location all absolutly superb. we were advised building work was being carried out nearby,despite being just across the road it didn,t cause us any problems at all.
The quality of entertainment in the bars in the evening is again second to none we particularly like Buddy Holly tribute and Words and music.
despite saying we will go somewhere else this autumn i,m sure we will be back at the Princesa in October.
another favorite is The Rich Bitch located in the old town this is so popular we always go down on our first evening to book ourselves seats for the wonderful show.
Excellent hotel, good food, excellent staff. Very close to the night life (new and old town). Stayed here in May 2004 and have booked again for May 2005
we took a chance last minute deal and we were very delighted with this hotel. Food is excellent with a great choice buffet style. Rooms large ish with a nice bathroom. Staff very polite and friendly. Only a short walk to beach and busy part of town. We would recommend it and we are the fussy type.
