Granted, the term luxury holidays to Benidorm doesn't automatically spring to mind. But there's more to this classic beach resort than just buckets and spades. In fact, it might just surprise you…
Away from its soaring tower blocks and skyscrapers there's another side to Benidorm. There's the old town for starters. All whitewashed houses, narrow streets and tapas bars, it's a far cry from the neon-lit bars of Benidorm proper– perfect if you're looking to get away from it all. And if relaxation tops your wish list, the golden sands of Benidorm are hard to beat.
In terms of days and nights out, Benidorm is perfectly positioned for trips out. About an hour away you've got Alicante. Forget the airport, this chic seaside city is gorgeous. Guarded by a cliff-top castle, its old town is a joy to discover, all windy little backstreets and balconies overhung with geraniums. The new part of town is great for shopping, you'll find the exclusive El Corte Ingles department store here, while the marina, with is clutch of swish bars and trendy hang outs, is a must for a sophisticated night out. Valencia is also within striking distance and offers up even more in the way of cosmopolitan chic.
When it comes to places to stay, there's one clear contender in the luxury holidays to Benidorm stakes – the 5T Hotel Don Pancho. Draped in ivy and set with splashing waterfalls and exotic plants, you'll get a taste of what awaits as you walk up to the entrance. It's really rather special.
And so, if you're thinking about luxury travel to Spain, give Benidorm a thought. This holiday favourite is full of surprises.

We stayed at the Rio Park for 2 weeks in August, the hotel was clean,. (rooms cleaned daily and fresh towels) the cost of food/drink was very reasonable, and the food in the dining room was lovely even if by the second week we were fed up of eating... more on this review
