Much of the TV comedy series, Benidorm, was filmed at these sister hotels. Complete with a tropical pool, activities pool, 2 children's pools, three whirlpool baths and plenty of entertainment, it’s no wonder this place caught the location scout’s eye.
And because it’s effectively two hotels in one, you get double the benefits. The restaurants, snack and pool bars all come in pairs. Menu-wise, expect buffets piled high with Spanish dishes and international favourites, while light bites and drinks are served at the bars.
As for the looks side of things, the hotels are modern and fuss-free. Bedrooms are a good size and come decorated in a palette of cream and white with injections of colour from deep red furniture, and modern art prints. They all have satellite TVs, too.
There’s quite a lot on offer in terms of activities here, too. With two pools solely dedicated to kids, and a hotel-run kids’ club, playground and children's climbing wall, it’s a great base for families. Adults, meanwhile, get their pick of pool games. Come sundown, professional shows and live music take the spotlight.
Lastly, there’s the location. It’s right in the heart of New Benidorm, so shops, bars and restaurants are all within easy reach. Plus, sandy Levante Beach is less than a five-minute walk away.

We have just spent a week at the pelicanos and have got to say I was well impressed. When we arrived we didn't like our room , it smelt of smoke and urine but the hotel quickly dealt with it and we were happy with the 2nd room, were going to upgrade to a superior room but it's not really worth it as all your getting is a flat screen tv and a larger room. The decor is still the same. The nicer new rooms are the orcas and this wasn't open. The food was really lovely and all areas in the hotel were spotless as was Benidorm the resort. I was a bit worried about going to Benidorm what with past bad press but I needn't have been. The resort is teaming with all sorts of bars offering plenty of entertainment day and night and the drink and food are really cheap. Most people are friendly and even the hen and stags are all for having a good time. The promenade is really lovely, a great people watching place. It's nice to have a stroll to the old town to do a bit of shopping or walk up to the lovely church and admire the views. All in all good value for money and very clean. The only down side to this hotel was on the day of leaving we had our all inclusive band cut off at breakfast and although we had lunch we weren't allowed drinks including water that we had to pay 2.2 euros for. When we arrived on sat at 11.30pm we had paid for that day and not recieved any meals or drinks so I think that the hotel should allow you to get drinks and food till your departure.More
This was our 1st visit to Los pelicanos, and would like to say we enjoyed our stay there, the staff are friendly ,the rooms are nice and clean, the food was good with a varied choice, my only concern was being on the 10th floor and spending time waiting for a lift, but no worries there !! There's 5 lifts available !More

Great Hotel in a Central Location
Group of 11 'ladies' stayed for 3 nights on a B&B basis, which was booked purposely because of the Benidorm TV program. Hotel in a great location, very central for everything you need including shops, bars, medical centre (!!!) and beach. Rooms were a good size and spotless, beds and pillows slightly hard and uncomfy but no more so than sleeping in any bed that's not your own. Safe in wardrobe, paid a couple of euros per day and a 10 euro deposit which I got back at the end of the stay. Breakfast plentiful and a good choice of things to eat. We also had toasties/sandwiches in the bar area which were great and very good value for money. We didn't stay in the hotel for any of the evening entertainment but caught bits of it which all seemed very good - was lovely to see the older ladies and gents dancing along to the music. Staff very friendly and helpful - all in all we couldn't fault this hotel in any way. Would certainly stay again.More
Sol Pelicanos, Benidorm
This is my 2nd stay at this Hotel. I loved the ambience of the hotel, which is largely created by the staff, whom I can only describe as delightful. It is also very comfortable, and I also appreciated the provision of in-house entertainment as I had neither the inclination nor the money for a gad about holiday. Public facilities pleasant and comfortable, as was my bedroom.More
