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 an adult 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.

Outstanding Hotel

I stayed here in October with 9 friends, some had stayed here before and it came highly recommended. The hotel is in a perfect location 5 minutes from beach and all the bars/restaurants, the rooms are spotlessly clean, rooms could do with a revamp but they are spotless and we were lucky enough to have a balcony (I would request one as some of the rooms don't have them). As others have mentioned I would bring a hairdryer and kettle also there is no fridge in the room. The staff are extremely friendly, we stayed half board and the food was excellent, something for everyone. There are two pools which are gorgeous and you can avail of food throughout the day and night. There is entertainment on at night time but we went out at night time.More
