Expert review of Hotel Royal
When the hotel was refurbished in 2007 the designers brought it brightly up to date without going over the top, achieving a high level of attractiveness without losing the comfortable ambience that has brought guests back year-in-year-out.
A ten-minute walk to either the golden sands of Levante beach or the meandering alleyways of Benidorm’s old town, with plenty of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants to keep you entertained along the way.
The contemporary design of cream, beige, brown and light grey is brightened up with gorgeously gaudy orange chairs and bright paintings. (Although I was a bit bemused by the twirly patterned carpet.) Plenty of space both in the rooms themselves and on the terrace, equipped with table and chairs. A choice of twin beds and doubles (cama de matrimonio), with some of the rooms with a double bed being slightly larger.
The entrance lobby has rows of black leather armchairs set out in rows, that made me think of an up-market dentist’s waiting room. The bar is a bit more relaxed.
The food is a step above the usual hotel standard, in itself pretty good in Benidorm anyway. The restaurant is elegantly styled enough to pass for any independent establishment, never mind one that’s part of a hotel.
A gymnasium and swimming pool for the day and a bar and late and disco for the night. Free evening entertainment is provided during the high season.
Extremely welcoming and helpful.
A broad mix of people and ages, mostly couples, with a few families during the summer.
WiFi is available at 5€ a day.
