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.

the hotel is average the breakfast is nice as is dinner but a lot of repitition of food wise the evening entertainment starts to late in my opinion for children, the staff are nice and welcoming checkin to our hotel took over an hour the room was basic in my opinion the maids did a good job - the waitress / pool bar lady was horrid - you pay all inclusive for the week on the 7th day she cuts your band off!!! The tv programme actors are all here at this hotel so that was nice . More

We have just returned from a long weekend break over the Easter period to celebrate my 60th Birthday with my family. This was our first visit to the Sol Pelicanos and we all had a brilliant time. The hotel is absolutely fantastic. Excellent choice of food, great pools, brilliant entertainment day and night. We stayed in the Ocas building and all our rooms were first class, with plenty of room and spotlessly clean. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a great location very close to everything and just a short stroll to the beach. It was the best way ever to celebrate my 60th Birthday and we shall definitely be returning next year at some time.More
Second girlie holiday in Beni!!
Have just returned from my second girlie holiday to Benidorm, last year we stayed at The Orange but we got a good deal on all inclusive to the Sol Pelicanos so we decided to give it a go! Have to say we were not disappointed although to be honest we thought the food at The Orange had the edge mainly because everything seemed luke warm at the Pelicanos but there is a microwave if you wish to heat your food some more but there is a great choice for everyone, the pool area is what makes this hotel but part of the pool was cordened off due to the filming of the next series of Benidorm, although there was never any filming at the pool area for the 5 nights we were there, although they were filming over the road at Morgans Tavern and we did meet most of the cast so that was good. The staff here were very nice apart from one or two grumpy ones but I guess we cant all be nice all of the time! We were in the Sol Pelicanos part of the hotel and the rooms here are a little dated with no hairdryers or fridge and surely in 2014 every hotel should be offering free wi-fi!! A couple from our party had been put in the Ocas hotel and the rooms there a very modern with flat screen tv's and hairdryers and a beautiful huge walk in shower, they also have a fridge but they wanted 30 euros for the use of it for 5 nights!! A rip off in my opinion!! The hotel is in a great position for the night life and the beach but is definately more of a family hotel rather than groups of stags/hens etc therefore it was a little quiter in the early hours than the Orange which was a good thing! Overall a good hotel but does rely on its pool and the connection with the Benidorm series and i feel The Pelicanos part of the hotel really does need an update with hairdryers etc, but would definately stay here again if we got a good deal. Well girlie holiday 2015 is already booked as we got a great deal on The Marina Hotel so roll on April 2015!More
Lovely hotel but food is awful
We have just returned from a 4 day break at the Sol pelicanos Ocas. We were placed in the Ocas and the room was very nice unfortunately we were on the one side of either of the hotels with no balcony or view. The facilities and staff at the hotel were excellent and could not be faulted. The biggest problem was the food it was terrible and virtually the same every day. Because it was benidorm we chose not to go all inclusive to get out and about and the hotel was extortionate for drinks. The signs forbidding people to reserve sunbeds with towels might well have been written in Egyptian hieroglyphs. Since no one including the staff payed any notice. we stayed last year at the servigroup nereo and I would have to say that far excelled. The shear amount of stag and hen groups really were a pain in a family hotel. It strikes me as really being a shame because the pelicanos Ocas could really be a superb hotelMore

Great value hotel
Excellent location, a few minutes from shops and beach. Do not read the bad reviews this is a great value hotel. Food was excellent. There were a few missing extras such as no beach towels, no balcony, no postcards or didn't sell stamps but this could be the norm for 3 stars, never stayed in one before! They were filming the show so half the pool was closed but met Tony who plays Kenneth! The only negative was the entertainment, this was awful! Such a disappointment, they could have done so much better. So the evenings were a let down, went into town one night but not suitable with 2 children. Went to the show at Benidorm Palace - amazing show and excellent value. Doesn't start til 10pm and it is on for over 2 hours but our 6 and 8 year old stayed awake, it was that good! Also visit Mundomar - brilliant day out and had our photo taken with a dolphin, heard that the zoo is not very good so avoid. Did the open top bus too which was good. All in all a great Easter break, will return soon!More
