This was a last minute booking for a long weekend (4 nights) in Benidorrm. It was a birthday celebration so most of the time was spent out in the clubs and bars. We travelled with another couple, so decided to go half-board to avoid the situation of trudging around Benidorm trying to decide where we should eat at meal times. The H/B deal wasn't much dearer that B&B, and I am really pleased we did because the food was great. I have stayed in hotels that had a greater choice of dishes on offer, but not many that had the quality that was available at the Venus. We found the food was always piping hot, and replaced regularly. The staff in the restaurant were very friendly and things ran very efficiently.
The hotel itself is well positioned, close to all the main bars of the new town, and a 10 minute stroll down to the beach (Levante). The reception sits between to the two 8/9 storey blocks that form the hotel. There was some modernisation going off in the block we were staying, and a lot of the floors were closed while this was happening. This did not impede on our stay at all, and I can say that we never had any disturbance from this. Our room was on the 8th floor and overlooked the road. This meant that there was some road noise early in the morning. The room itself was quite small, but was modern with pastel colours and comfortable beds. The bathroom had new fittings and the towels/soap/shower gel were replaced and replenished regularly. There is also a hair dryer in the bathroom.
The main bar in the hotel is a popular place, which probably has something to do with there being a constant 'happy hour'. Yes, you get 2-for-1 all day, everyday!!! The bar had events on each night that are advertised in the reception; quiz nights, bingo, karaoke, and various acts. There is also a big screen TV showing sky sports.
Although we never ventured into the pool, we did spend a few hours at the pool side which is very spacious and has plenty of sun-loungers.
We have stayed in 3 different hotels in Benidorm, and this one is the best yet.I would definately return.
