Hotel Sol Pelicanos/Ocas  

You might recognise these twin hotels – they star in ITV's Benidorm series. You'll have access to both places, so there's an array of pools, bars and restaurants to skip between.

Much of the TV comedy series, Benidorm, was filmed at these sister hotels. And with three pools and plenty of entertainment venues, it’s no wonder this place caught the location scout’s eye.

The Hotel Sol Pelicanos/Ocas is effectively two hotels in one, so you get double the benefits – the restaurants, snack and pool bars all come in pairs.

The hotel grounds on the outside around are very large pool are large, but most people are down early to get the sunbeds they need, the life guard or hotel staff from time to time remove towels from beds that they believe were left as many people go get their beds and don't use them for hours later which is unfair. Their was exercise classes in the morning which always had a few adults attending, a small kids club in the playground area, my children were to old to attend. There is also a safety small playground for the younger ones. one thing that I had noticed it seemed more difficult for parents wheeling their prams up and down, u have to use a lift if u cant carry ur pram/buggy, sometimes a cue which can be annoying. rooms are small enough but clean to a high standard. Entertainment at night in the hotel I personally did not find great maybe because little English was used, so we left some nights for a walk or visit some of these famous shows. Food is fab esp if you are full board. My downfall was the entertainment is outside so some people were sitting around the smaller pools which only has a small plastic type rope going across, guessing a few people may have fallen in over time and more nervous if you have small children, as it does get busy and darker. There is an indoor market right next to the hotel which is cheap. The beach is 15 minutes walk maybe a bit more, but it is a beautiful beach worth a visit. The hotel staff are very friendly and will tell you what local attractions is worth seen. Be careful if you have teenage girls, two 20 year olds or around dark in apperance, not from the hotel kept mingling in the pool area, full of smiles, following my daughter and her cousin all day, from taking photos when they were not looking and were noted to be following them everywhere they went, family had to approach them as it did not seem right and had reported it to the hotel, if myself and family did not keep a close eye its scary to think what may have happened. Dry Cleaning is very expensive so it would be worth trying to wash what you need yourself. Overall a lovely hotel to have a rest.More

Barbara H,


Friend and I spent 5 days at Sol Pelicanos Hotel. We were on the 14thfloor (top) but had no problem in getting lift. Lovely view too. Beds made every day and clean towels every day. Lovely large pool area which is kept clean as is the hotel. Large dining room and guests at Sol Pelicanos could also use swimming pool and restaurant at the sister hotel Las Ocas which was next door. This was lovely too and smaller than Sol Pelicanos. Happy hour in hotel from 5-6pm. Nice play park for kids. Hotel is situated in a good position for cabaret venues etc but far enough away so as not to hear much noise during the night. Special shout out to Josh the Monarch rep who was always polite, cheerful and helpful. Would have no hesitation returning to this hotel in future. More

Great location , good hotel

Stayed for 4 nights at the Sol Pelicanos, or Hotel Solana if you watch the tv show ! Booking was easy via the Sol website, however we had to pay for 5 nights as this was the minimum period you could book for. Turned out to be very handy as we were able to use the room on the last day until our taxi came, no late check out fees ! Firstly hotel is in a great location, 2 minutes from the action, 5 minutes to the beach, close to the indoor market and we even walked 20 mins to the Benidorm Palace (fantastic Elvis Tribute night incidentally !) I had paid for B&B, but the breakfast finishes at 10.30am, which for us late night revellers was a bit early. Tried breakfast once, the usual all-inclusive slop, but plenty of it. Don't waste your money as loads of English cafe's within short walking distance do you a freshly cooked full English for less than €3 any time of day ! Hotel reception was clean and spacious, always busy. Chap who checked us in forgot to take our credit card, his mistake, which led to us being turned away from the breakfast the first morning, bit embarrassing so watch for that. Rooms are good, clean, cleaned every day with fresh towels, air-con worked well. I did note that it seemed very noisy, the walls/floors were thin, particularly around cleaning time when the staff would move furniture around. You have to pay for the safe key, which always annoys me !! Pool area was good, loads of space, plenty of sun-loungers, mostly reserved with towels. The area they use for filming was closed off, despite them not filming for 2 full days, bit annoying really, made the main pool area a bit congested. Didn't see any issues with vagrants / prostitutes around the front door, they are there but you just have to ignore them. On the whole, really enjoyed it here, would use againMore

Bendidorm - Sol

The hotel itself was lovely, the food absolutely fantastic and the outdoor pool area spectacular. The location is very central and perfect for the beach and of course all the bars. The only two downsides to this hotel, one is that there is only one bar in the hotel at night, which has a kids show from about 7.30/8.00 p.m. until around 9.30 p.m. the adults entertainment didn't start until 9.45 p.m. and was on for no longer than an hour after that there was nothing on. There is an outside sitting area just outside the main bar which is very small but unfortunately this is opposite a children's play area which is really noisy so you get no quality adult time. We have only just got back and the bar was extremely busy sometimes 4 deep, I dread to think what it would be like in the height of summer. The other downside was that our room was on the right of the hotel and near the main road, because of the central location it was extremely noisy until around 5.00 a.m.More
