Gala Placidia Hotel
Ranked #119 of 192 Hotels in Benidorm
Reviewed 31 January 2012

This Hotel was very nice. It was clean and the rooms were very comfortable, they were cleaned every day and new towels every day. The food was good and there was plenty of choice. The entertainment was in the spanish tradition and it was nice to see the locals enjoying themselves dancing every night and we were encouraged to join in. Not sure if entertainment is always spanish style or it may be because it was January which is the Spanish Pensioners holiday time. Near to the beach and plenty of other bars if you fancy a change. Reception staff very helpful. We had no compliants

Room Tip: room overlooking pool has better view

I was put into this hotel by my insurance company after a fall and a week in Levante Hospital, did query the "on an incline" was told by the instance company it;s ok it's only a slight incline...RUBBISH it's a steep hill of which my husband had to push me up in a wheelchair!!! I also questioned disabled access - only DA was to get into the hotel was the enterance! my husband and I plus a wheelchair could not get into the lift together so I had to take one lift on crutches (not good on your on when your just our of hospital) my husband took the second lift and the wheelchair folded. A waiter, one day before leaving, took us through a staff door and took us up in the staff/cleaning lift it was slightly better. There was a lift to take you down to the dinning room again definitely not DA friendly with the way the dining tables are set out and clientele mostly Spanish pretended you were not there!! (ignorant). We had breakfast one morning (if you could call it that) after that ate out morning, noon and night... Unable to get in and out of the bath, although it had been re-decorated it would have been better if they had taken the small bath out and replaced as a walk in shower. the rest of the bedroom was dull and needed a complete rip-out. If anyone knows where they Dynastic is then across the road is a hill you could just about see the hotel from the bottom.

I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL AND SEEMED FOR THE WEEK I WAS THERE, IT BEING USED FOR THE SPANISH PENSIONERS WEEKS HOLIDAY!!!

My Fiancée and I went to Benidorm just before Christmas, it was our first time there. We didn't want to spend to much so we went all inclusive. We arrived at the hotel late morning and was welcomed with a smile by the two members of staff on the front desk. We were explained everything about the all inclusive, time of meals, what drinks we could have etc.. We went up to our room on the fourth floor. When we turned the lights on a light bulb blew taking out the electrics (one of those things that happen), I went down to reception and within 5 minutes it was all fixed, excellent service.
The food was out of this world, buffet style with many different dishes to try. It was basically 3 courses for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We were really surprised by the amount and quality of the food.
When we were there we were the only 2 British people staying the others were Spanish. The lady who does the entertainment spoke Spanish and English. When it came to things like Bingo she would call the numbers in English first for us then in Spanish. The staff were very friendly, spoke very good English and very helpful when asked a question.
The hotel was very clean, a maid would come in everyday to clean, make beds and you always got fresh towels which doesn't happen in many hotels.
Overall this hotel was outstanding and we are looking to go back soon.
