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.

Not as bad as people are saying

we stayed in this hotel the plus points are: good location , rooms cleaned every day, staff were friendly, and food was buffet type and plentyfull, we even were allowed a cold breakfast at 7am before we left at 7.30 am . The only minuses were the wifi you had to pay for and the loyalty card you get says you get free wifi in common areas but when you ask about it they say you have a basic card and you need a platinum card to receive it not happy with that !!!!!!More

80s hotel

Having stopped in quite a few hotels in the last 35 years I,ve seen lots of changes over the years mainly the Spanish view towards English tourists, unfortunately the staff at this hotel still fail to realise that we hate rudeness, poor food and none English speaking staff, if you don't believe me try another hotel then try here,you'll see for yourself.More

Stayed Oct 14. I was interested to read the review about some one being bitten in their bedroom. I had a few bites the first couple of days but at the end of the week I was covered in them. I put it down to insects by the pool but now I am having doubts if that's were I got them. Home a week and still covered in them. Can't prove it now but I always had more in the mornings. Hmmm.More

Disappointed

Only good thing i can say is the food was very good many different dishes to choose from but it ends there. Picture on the web show the rooms in the Ocas side of the hotel, the pelicanos side is where we stayed room's were very tired and bathroom left a lot to be desired, we went all inclusive for the holiday and for the price we paid i would expect a fridge in the room and tea making facility's we even had to pay for bottled water. The pool had moss growing round the edges and the fountains by the swim up bar when not turned on the pool floor was disgusting we did complain to the rep on site who was very un helpfull. I have never written a bad review before but this hotel did NOT live up to our expectations. For a family hotel it had hen parties and stag parties staying in it one night security had to be called to remove young men standing on tables while a show was on one actually fell off the table onto a guest it spoiled the night for alot of people. So thumbs down to the Sol Pelicanos, Ocas.More
