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.

Great hotel lovely swimming pools very clean

Stayed here 7 days all inclusive. Hotel is very clean and found staff to be very friendly and helpfull. Down side for such a lovely hotel is pool is not heated in the winter, only saw three people try it more people and warmer in sea. This was the only downside. rooms were clean and cleaned everyday. Close to all restraunts and bars 20 - 30 minutes walk to old Town. Have to say was surprised how rude some of the british residents were to the staff, no please or thank you. my kids had better manners. Any how the hotel was excellent.More

Andy B,

The Pelicanos/Ocas remains a good choice in Benidorm

Stayed with friends during the November Fiesta when Benidorm is staggeringly busy. Have stayed in the Pelicanos before so no hesitation in returning. This time however we were assigned rooms in the Ocas. It was clear this has recently had a refurb. The rooms were absolutely great. The food (we were H/B) was fine & was certainly on par with what you get in these types of hotel. Rooms were cleaned, Cleaners were nice & polite. The reception staff were very polite & helpful (when one of our group was given a room in the Pelicanos when the rest were in the Ocas it was quickly sorted out for us) All-in-all a very good stay & we would certainly use it again.More
