“We shall be back.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

Having visited this Hotel last October for one week we decided to enjoy the comforts once more and have just returned from a two week stay. The service, staff in all areas and the food were first class. Hotel is one of the most comfortable we have stayed in whilst abroad and the maid service is excellent. A bottle of wine in the dining room is as little as 7 euros but a further two euros will get you a nice bottle of Siglo. Whisky in the bar (nightcap) is a pricey 5 euros for a rather small amount but try their smooth 103 brandy for a mere 2.80 euros(I am teetotal by the way but hubby likes a nightcap). In the colder winter evenings you can enjoy dancing in the hotel, although the group are good the music is repetitive. Some further entertainment is provided by Flamenco dancers, magician etc.
The lounge offers large screen with football including most English and even Scottish premier games. Unlike many hotels there is Sky Sports and ESPN not too mention the showing each evening of British soaps i.e. Emmerdale!! This Hotel opened in 1973 we were told by reception, so it is old world traditionally Spanish but absolutely spotlessly clean. The Hotel is on level ground for those recycled teenagers who are not keen on steep hills. Central and a few minutes onto the promenade. All rooms with sunny balconies and the sun shone very day during our visit in February, wonderful. Last not least great shower and hot water!. We are planning our next visit already.

Room Tip: Higher floor for a fantastic panoramic view of Benidorm and the sea.

Valentine's day 2012 was the coldest February in Benidorm that we have ever experienced in the last 20+ years or so. However, it was sunny & dry for the week that we were there, making it perfect for our afternoon reading and was on the sun filled balcony. The Don Pancho as usual continues to maintain its high standards of service, cleanliness and hospitality and with 5 lifts to service all floors. The quality and variety of foods available for breakfast & lunch was consistently top class. We were even given a few glasses of pleasant Spanish cava with our evening meal on one occasion. My only complaint is that with buffet meals the hot dishes never seem to remain hot enough, the downside of most buffets. The hotel's location could not be bettered for access to the frequent bus services: for access to the beautiful beach and prom - only 100 meters away: and is a 10 minute walk away from the Sunday & Wednesday market. It is also handy for shops, clubs & pubs. This part of Benidorm is totally flat with no significant hills making it ideal for those of us who have mobility issues. The room heating/air conditioning worlks well in all weathers, with spare bedding in the wardrobe if needed.

Room Tip: All rooms face the sea. Our preference is for a high floor, best views and quieter.

Just back from 2wks at the Don and whilst the weather was sunny but chilly the welcome from the hotel was really warm !
I was ill during our stay and the staff looked after me like a queen from the chambermaid who offered me cushions/pillows so I could be more comfortable to the dining room waiters who made sure we had a table I could sit at with my wheelchair and the bar staff who would reserve me a comfy chair.
Its a joy to go to this hotel - not the cheapest but definitly the best and NO bingo lol lol

Room Tip: All rooms face south and he hotel has started to refurbish the rooms but the workmen are as quiet a...
