Hotel Sol Pelicanos/Ocas  

You might recognise these twin hotels - they star in ITV's Benidorm series. And since 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 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.

waste of money!

We visited this hotel at then end of August, such a shame we had such a awful time! firslty we had a room over the pool/ entertainment area with music blaring till gone 1 am , with a small child we asked to be moved which took 2 days and a lot of attitude from reception. once we finally moved our new room was less than clean and we had broken patio furniture! The food was rubbish unless you like chips and burgers!! we pad over £1500 for 3 of us for a week and had to spend another £600 to eat out! wont be returning in a hurry and I have advised family and friends not to bother either!More

Brilliant Hotel

I'm pleased I ignored some of the reviews I read. Just came back today and had a brilliant time at this hotel. The room was lovely, fresh and beautifully clean. Towels changed daily. Hairdryer. Lovely balcony. Beds large and comfy, lovely linen. The pools are all great, some people still feel the need to dump their towels at 8.30am every morning to get the same sun beds, but that will always happen. Noticed quite a few disabled people there and felt they were well catered for. We only had breakfast but it was great, everything you could want, thoroughly enjoyed it every day. All in all a great hotel with great facilities. One tiny thing would have been a bonus, tea making facilities, which you had to pay extra for, should be included. Would definitely return.More

Decent hotel but

Stayed allinclusive for two weeks start of sep,I know this is a family hotel but the entertainment was quite drab,I don't blame the staff who were in shows but after a couple of nights we started going out to shows in town,which is not why we went allinclusive,it cost us another 500 euros for our holiday,the hotel itself was ok,we had to get moved because our aircon wasn't working,got upgraded to a superior room,but still aircon wasn't working properly,complained again ,sent engineer,said he fixed it,but still the same,food was very good plenty of choice,and snack bar good for when I had munchies,pool was excellent,best I have been in ,staff friendly,but wish they would speak more English,I go to benidorm about 3-4 times a year,but will not return to pelicanos,as entertainment not my taste,if you are a Spanish family it is ideal,management please look into entertainment,as a lot of people I spoke to agreed with me,going allinclusive,you shouldn't have to go out 8 nights of a 2 week break,More

When we where there we heard of several rooms that had stuff robbed. I also noticed on the day we where departing that my cardigan which I had only wore once before has been taken from my room, reported this to reception, also written details down and left with reception, that left me with a bitter feeling, after I and my family enjoyed the stay at hotel.More
