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.

Shaz S,

Pelicanos needs updating

We have just returned from here after a long weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The hotel has many good things but there are a few things we weren't impressed with. We stayed in a standard double room in the Pelicanos hotel with a balcony over looking the Ocas pool which was a nice view. The room was very small and dated but it was clean and the cleaning staff were very good. The air con didn't work, we reported it to reception who came straight away to fix it but didn't manage to fix it! The Pelicanos side does need updating, we spoke to many people staying in the Ocas side who said it was much nicer as it has recently been refurbished so I would recommend requesting that side. The Pelicanos pool is fantastic and huge! We managed to get sun beds no matter what time we came down. We stayed half board and had no problems with the food. My husband is a bit fussy so he mainly ate from the kids section, but there was a large selection every day which changed daily.The only one thing to complain about at dinner is the drinks were quite expensive with dinner, water and soft drinks were $2.20 each and they were only small glasses. The drinks in the main bar and also around the pool were very expensive - actually double the price they were in town!! All in all it was ok for a short break but I would recommend staying in the Ocas side. If you wanted Wi-Fi it was also quite expensive at $8 per day.More

Where's Madge!!!....

If you know the TV programme "Benidorm" then you will recognise the pool area of the Sol Pelicanos/ Sol Ocas. We stayed there for seven nights, the room we had in the Sol Ocas which is the sister hotel to the Pelicanos and you can use both amenities of each even the restaurants. There were six of us split up in three rooms, two rooms we had were called family rooms, with two beds pushed together and separately made up, also another bed about four foot wide double with another under it to pull out if needed, the room was very clean, and bathroom had a bath with both an overhead and adjustable slider shower fitted, also a fridge, we didn't need a family room, no children with us and we are older ladies, the side the room was on is a quite one, not overlooking the pool area where the entertainment is outside till midnight, but we did miss not having a balcony, we wouldn't have minded the other side but couldn't be bothered to change once settled. Food was buffet style and excellent, if you cannot find enough to tempt your taste buds, then its you that have a problem not the hotel, breakfast full English, (and the sausages everyone kept saying were the best ever scrumptious) or fruit ,yoghurt, cereal, omelettes cooked to order, lunch and evening meal , pasta, chips, paella, salad, cold meat, fish, casserole, as half board we had breakfast and used our other meal as a lunch when we went out for an evening meal which was good. Entertainment was at the smaller Ocas pool area in the evening if no rain, or inside the Pelicanos, and they do a good evenings show. The hotel Is about five minutes walk from the beautiful beach, and you will need to take towels for the pool and beach with you as none are available at the hotel, which I forgot and brought one at the shop next to the hotel, of which there are many. The other entertainment can be found a short walk away, bars, karaoke bars, even the hotel next door has a singer till midnight. The hotel also has a lift that takes you from the pavement down to the entrance, and ramps inside to get to the lifts for wheelchair access, also as in the programme you can rent the electric wheelchairs, even double ones. There is also a Bam Bam club for children re the Flintstones The, Fred and Dino characters wander round kids love them. The only niggle was two small lifts and we were on the tenth floor..... sometimes had to wait a while for one. We enjoyed ourselves there, and would recommend it as value for money.More
