It looks like somebody from the 70s designed it as a futuristic skyscraper for the 90s.

Have to agree on this one, don't like the tower as an individual design but I do like the tower as a part of Benidorm!

I prefer the blue'n'white version than the gold one.

Building is not bad, but not wonderful.

It will fit very well in Benidorm's skyline. This building is between cool and repugnant. I dont know what to say.

The quality gap between Benidorm and Goldcoast is widening fast!
