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 ...
... the air conditioned car for the drive home. I went back to the municipal pool to cool down and read my book. Then it was back to Casa Cronk to pack our bags ready for the trip North to Andy and Julie the next day. The evening was spent playing games over snacks and drinks with a final carajillo de Baileys at the Avenida bar before turning in ready for an early start the next ...
... time via the road that kept us close to the beachfront, which took a bit longer but allowed us to take in the sights. It was pretty windy on the beach so we were all gently exfoliated by the fine, wind-blown sand in a pleasant way; the wind keeping us a bit cooler in the blazing heat. A simple picnic kept us going and late in the afternoon, slightly battling the wind, we packed up and made for home. After freshening up we took a drive through the local mountains, via ...
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 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Servigroup Pueblo Benidorm
Down hill sadly
I have been to the barcelo pueblo many times, in the past five years....and have always loved this hotel,and the staff, and the location..I went there with my husband and daughter again this year on the 13/07/2004 for 2 weeks and have to sadly say this hotel has really gone down hill...the food mainly was the biggest problem,no variety at all and the breakfast that i loved so much has really changed for the worse,the dinner in the evening was dreadful on at least 11 out of the 14 nights.The pool area is not hosed down and scrubbed every morning like it once was and is grubby, and if you dont reserve a sunbed by 7.00am you dont get one when the staff finaly undo the chains at 9.15am,and it causes people to get rather niggly around the pool sadly..The entertainment in this hotel has never been good, and hasent changed for the better, in fact its worse, in the past five years,the same things are on constant, (even the stage setting is the same)childrens entertainment everynight at 9.00pm(boring)and very out dated..The thing that most concerns me is that this hotel is now doing all inclusive, as well as the basic half board,and this hotel really isnt up to the standards of an all inclusive hotel, and i,m afraid in my opinion is doomed to failure. This makes me sad as i have slowly watched a lovely 3* hotel of high quality, turn into a hotel i dont think i,ll be returning to again.. on a good note though the staff are all the same, even after all these years and are freindly and will go out of there way to help you... I think this hotel needs a new maintainance man for the pool, and a new chef, and some new english entertainment staff...thanks for reading this review.
I stayed at this Hotel with my parents over the Christmas and New Year (2003/2004) period. Its a dreadful hotel, definately NOT recommended.
FOOD - Rubbish
ENTERTAIMENT - Rubbish
STAFF - Useless and Unhelpful
LOCATION - OK, but right on top of the Market. So VERY busy on Wednesdays and Sundays
ROOMs....Small but tidy.
OVERALL RATING 2 out of 10.....only derserves ONE STAR!!!!
Don't bother staying here, unless you are SPANISH, as the Hotel seemed VERY biased towards its own people
Was this really a three star
On the 19th of June 2004 my partner and i stayed at the Pueblo, having stayed there previously i was expecting a great holiday. However upon arrival we were allocated a tiny room, i later found out that the room was a single one and not meant for a couple.
The food was not very good. A lot of the same dishes and nothing really spectatular. We spent most of our hoilday budget eating out!
Fair well to the Pueblo would never consider staying there again!
When we went to Benidorm and stayed in the barcelo pueblo we thought it was really clean and tidy and the food was yummy. We would go back anyday.
Such a great hotel
I stayed in this hotel in june 2000 and i thought it was the best hotel i had ever been 2. my dad is in a wheelchair so it was really easy for him 2 get around because there is lots of space. the rooms we satyed in were really lovely for a 3star hotel.
its the best 3star hotel ive ever stayed in and the food was great
Stayed at this hotel for the last week in Febraury 2004.
Everything about this hotel was excellent. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was great with a very wide selection of main dishes.
A very, very enjoyable stay!! Would definately recommend this hotel to anyone.
Perfection at the Pueblo
Still revelling from my recent stay at the Pueblo. It being my first time in Benidorm I found this hotels location ideal as most things to do were in walking distance. All the staff from the entertainers ,particularly Emilio ;o), to the receptionists, were friendly and contributed to making my stay at the Pueblo the success it was. I've always felt a hotel can make or break a holiday...this definately made mine!
Chase those winter blues away
Lovely hotel with very friendly helpful staff. The meal times are long enough to suit everyone. Great choices on the menu and you can help yourself .....very difficult not to over do it!!!!! Only drawback was no heated pool which in the winter months is essential if you want to swim. Entertainment was also not to our taste but there is plenty of bars nearby with entertainment so there is something for everyone.
we would rate it as a 4 star very clean and good food drinks good. down side weather in winter and the dinning room. can get full at tea time 540 rooms. pool nice and big + small pool. small show every night. good for a week,
Best hotel ever
My wife and I returned from this hotel on 2/09/03 after a week and it was the best 3Star Hotel we have stayed in and we will be returning next year
