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.

Will be back
Got back on the 15th after 4 nights at the Ocas part, obviously i can only comment on the Ocas & not the Sol Pelicanos part but was very happy with everything about it. The whole hotel was spotless & the rooms were cleaned dailyto a very high standard. We had a superior room ( didn't book a superior room so was obviously happy ! ) the beds were extremely comfy & the bathroom was very big! the view wasn't the best but it's Benidorm & we don't go for the views! the same goes for some noise from other guest's for which some other posters have marked the hotel down for, there was some but not excessive. It's the centre of Benidorm for gods sake, if you want quiet then don't book a hotel in the middle of Benidorm! We just had bed & breakfast so can only comment on breakfast, which was very good with plenty of choice, the only downside was the "fruit juice " not much evidence of fruit unfortunatley, plenty of water in it though! Next time we go to Beni we will booking that hotel. Just a quick point at some other posters issues with the smell & checking in times. we went to both receptions & couldn't smell anything, as for the check in time it was only a few mins.More

We have just returned from our second visit at the Sol Pelicanos and we had a very enjoyable holiday. We were concerned about rowdy parties as on our first visit but as in the school holidays this wasn't a problem. We stayed all inclusive and I don't know why people complain about the food as we found it excellent, but the restaurant was very busy. To give an honest review I must state there is a very long check in and rude reception staff, we found it extremely rude to be served and then half way through the receptionist take a telephone call with no apology. In the mornings we never got a sun lounger as people put towels on them, the hotel did nothing to police this and found it very irritating that we would sit near the snack bar whilst loungers were empty, even for the few hours we were there no one appeared. The last niggle was the one lifeguard who wandered around, our children played with an inflatable all week at the shallow end of the pool but on the last day he said they should go in the round pool, I told him it is too deep and his reply was give them arm bands, so he was very inconsistent. Most of the staff were very friendly and helpful and they work very long hours and noticed that they were there everyday. The entertainment was ok and our children enjoyed it and as with children we did stay in the hotel. All in all a good holiday and may stay again in the future if we return to Benidorm.More

Arrived at The Pelicanos Friday 4th April. Checked in and was told to go to the Ocas next door?? Arrived at the Ocas and was given a room on the 8th floor. The rooms were like something out of a show house. Walk in shower, Wall mounted plasma TV. 3 lovely beds and really modern. the only downfall was no balcony and the window opened a few inches. No good for smokers. Asked at reception for a balcony and was sent back to the Pelicanos. Was situated on the 12th floor. Room bit dated but nice and clean and comfortable. The breakfast was tasty but when you eventually get what you want after queing it can be cold. Didn't know that there was one microwave unitl the day before we where coming home. It was hidden in between the toasters. We ate breakfast out on a few occasions for a change. We went for a drink one afternoon at the bar only to be ignored by the barman who kept serving everybody wearing a wrist band. We booked bed and breakfast and was showing money to pay for the drinks. The maids were the friendliest of all staff. But all in all an enjoyable stay. Thanks guys. Jeanette Betty and Polly.More
