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.

Hotel clean , central location , Bar staff and reception staff very friendly, sadly can't give the same review about all the staff. I left my purse in the wardrobe next to the safe (how ironic) When I remembered and called the hotel, after checking out,of course no sign. I know I left it there as I don't take it out in Benidorm , I use a smaller pick pocket safe purse and leave my usual purse in the room where I presume it would be safe. The only staff who had the chance of taking it were the cleaners. Dissapointed , will be calling police and won't be going back.More

We booked this hotel based on location, cost and availability as we didn't intend spending much time in the hotel. We stayed half board and the dinner options were OK but tasted bland. Breakfast was marginally better. The hotel throughout was clean and staff are generally friendly. There are plenty of lifts to service so many rooms. The location was by far the best thing for this hotel, oh and the fact that it's the same hotel as used in the UK series 'Benidorm'.More

Good hotel, mainly for older generation

We stayed here in February five couples we had a great laugh. The staff in the hotel were friendly but we were definitely the younger generation (we were aged 35-50). The hotel did have the older feel about it. The entertainment was the same. It is however in a good central location so we could meet up in the bar area for one before heading out. More


Would never stay in this hotel again!

My family and I have just returned from a week half board at this hotel. We have been to Benidorm many times but wanted to try a different hotel. We turned up in the lobby and were met by a disgusting smell - think sewerage! That smell stayed there most of the holiday. Our rooms were not ready and we have to wait 3 hours before they were, when we finally got our room we went into it and my husband looked under the bed and were shocked to discover the maid had swept the rubbish under the bed instead of picking it up. We told the reception staff and were told someone would sort it but they didn't until 2 days later. The pool area is really nice, part of it is blocked off for filming. The food was a real disappointment, if you like yorkshire puddings and chips you'll be ok as they were there every day! You have to pay for any drinks you want with dinner, even water. The prices in the bar were very expensive, the entertainment very poor, ok if you have young kids who enjoy the kiddies disco. The coffee was awful, breakfast was swimming in grease, thankfully had fruit, yoghurts and cereal and juices. We all couldn't wait to get home. Will never go to this hotel again.More
