I booked a bike for just one day during a busy Easter weekend. The bike quality is fantastic (Ridley Fenix with Ultegra), service is amazing and offered great value.

Can I add especially that as a (not skinny) solo woman in the world of road cycling I was especially pleased that I wasn't treated with any level of chauvinism when asking for a full carbon road bike and a GPX file for a mountain climb. I was treated as what I was, a keen cyclist wanting a road bike for the day while on holiday. This may sound like an odd thing to review, but it is still a fairly rare thing, so thank you.

Three of us hired Ridley Fenix bikes for 5 days. Booking and pre-book up process was faultless. The bikes were ready when we arrived and it was a very efficient handover. I'd sent my set up measurements in advance and the bike was perfect - no adjustment needed, other than slackening off the brakes a bit to get the right feel for me. Bikes themselves were excellent - light and strong with decent Ultegra groupsets. Return process was just as efficient and location of shop is handy with parking easy to find and a big supermarket next door. Would definitely use again.

I hired a road bike for a week - nice carbon bike with ultregra. Everything was perfect, I felt like can easily ask for help if something happened to bike. Luckily I didn't need! :) Staff were helpful and friendly - you may ask them about great roads and they will give you good advices. :) Roads in this area are THE BEST...and I truely believe that it will take some time to find the better place for road cycling. ;) Reccomended! Next year for sure I'll come back!

We had a week long stay and hired bikes for five days. Terry was very helpful even uploaded gpx files to my garmin for a route up to tarbina. Which I might add was brilliant. Would highly recommend bike hire from hear. The bikes were full carbon RIdley fenix with a nice 32 sprocket for the climb.

I hired a mountain bike from the Meta Bike Cafe and was, as usual impressed with the great condition of the bike and very reasonable price. Terry and his staff are very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. I have hired Road Bikes in the past and have been equally impressed. The Benidorm area just seems to be getting more and more bike friendly. There are miles and miles of fantastic designated bike paths which would suit even the most inexperienced rider. There are a host of fantastic off road trails and caminos at low level and high in the mountains which would test any Mountain Bike rider's skill and stamina. The roads are relatively quiet even near the towns and when you ride into the mountains you see very few cars (but quite a few keen cyclists) I would urge any bike rider to try this area for it's great weather and multitude of routes and challenges. I have checked other hire shops in the area and The Meta Bike Cafe is more than competitive with (in my opinion) by far the best selection of bikes.
I can't wait to get back!
