Hotel Sol Pelicanos/Ocas  

You might recognise these twin hotels - they star in ITV's Benidorm series, take into account that ITV's Benidorm series may be filming during your stay. You'll have access to both places, there's an array of pools, bars, and restaurants to skip between. Levante Beach is a 5-minute walk away, too.

Much of the TV comedy series, Benidorm, was filmed at these sister hotels. Complete with three adult pools, two 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.

Another Visit

This is our third visit but you may be considering your first so I will try to cover the important points. The Hotel: Overall the hotel is much like most other package hotels, it is starting to show it's age with the décor but that's not too much of an issue. A negative is the odour in reception, it is a smell of sewerage, disguised a little by large amounts of air fresheners sprayed by the staff, it was there 5 years ago and was still there this year. The Room: These are normally a good size, basic furniture but at least they have upgraded the vintage TV for a nice large flat screen with good channel selection, woodchip wallpaper with painted patches for the damaged areas, the rooms require a serious revamp. This year we were in room 616, apparently these appear to be the small areas left at the end of the hotel build, I suspect originally designed as a single occupation room, now used as a normal room by squeezing a double bed in, don't jump up fast and make a run for the loo during the night or you will walk into the wall, it was no big deal really but a bit annoying that we were paying the same price as everyone else who had more spacious rooms. The Staff: 100% perfect, friendly and helpful and not a single negative issue all week, thank you all. The Food: This is always a personal viewpoint, one of the things peoples likes and dislikes vary so much, however my view is the whole weeks food was totally superb. There was the usual choice of meat, fish and salad with the added bonus of more unusual offerings, sushi, goat, suckling pig etc etc, the sweets were fantastic and I can not think of anything I was not fully satisfied about. Conclusion: A good hotel although the rooms a little dated, positioned ideally for the day and evenings outings without suffering the noise of the busy areas. One of the best pool complexes of any hotel we have been to. The Bad Bit: Benidorm has always had it's percentage of low life's preying on the unwary, this year was a lot worse, bag snatches,camera shops, pea men, beggars, dodgy sellers were everywhere. Read up on Benidorm scams if this is your first trip and DO NOT change your money at the exchange next to the hotel, their rates are false, go to the mini market 20 meters up the road.More

Don't go worst customers service ever

Well they say first impressions count so if that is true I would have to mark this hotel a 0 trying to book in at reception was horrendous there were so many people arriving but only 2 staff on . I was part of a party of 24 coming for my daughters hen party and people were coming from varying places from the uk and arriving at various times . We were on an early flight but some were not getting there till early evening at first reception staff said the girls who were sharing rooms with the later arrivals could not book in till all the room members were there despite the room being ready when we arrived argument no 1 we were eventually allowed to book in then they could not find all our bookings despite showing them the accommodation vouchers argument no 2 then my daughter who had made the arrangements had to come forward to desk to sign document she left her case for literally one minute turned round an the case had gone , it was a large case as she had all her clothes and everything in it for the hen night out , there was no security any where we immediately reported to reception their reaction was to just shrug their shoulders and said there was nothing they could do my daughter asked to see their ccvtv and they refused as I say what a great first impression . They told us to get in touch with the police but they would not take any responsibility . Later on that day amazingly I did see security staff in the reception area but it was to little to late for us . The staff in this hotel were the most unhelpful staff I have ever come across they did nothing to. Help us in what was a very stressful situation they just did not want to know . There are so many hotels to chose from benidorm so please do not choose this oneMore

Currently staying at the hotel, the staff are very rude, wouldn't expect them to work this industry! Needs to be spoke to by the manager, if I'm honest I cant wait to go home! The food is appauling not nice at all, pool smells of drainage not able to use balls or inflatables, if u go back down to reception to ask or add something on they ignore u and answer a phone were waiting about 20 mins on day! Do not Stay hereMore
