You might recognise these twin hotels – they star in ITV's Benidorm series. You'll have access to both places, so there's an array of pools, bars and restaurants to skip between.
Much of the TV comedy series, Benidorm, was filmed at these sister hotels. And with three pools and plenty of entertainment venues, it’s no wonder this place caught the location scout’s eye.
The Hotel Sol Pelicanos/Ocas is effectively two hotels in one, so you get double the benefits – the restaurants, snack and pool bars all come in pairs.

I recently came on holiday with my partner, it took around an hour to check in. I would never come all inclusive ever again, the snack bar food was dry and had been lay their for hours, I'm a fussy eater and the breakfast was disgusting, very rarely seen the entertainment staff, this holiday cost us Â£700 each. The night time entertainment needs improved also. Same food day in day out.....More
Clean rooms and nice pool.
Stayed here for a week with family. Rooms are clean and are what you expect for the area. The food is usual hotel food(gets boring after a few days). Pool is large and plenty of beds. No different than anywhere else weve stayed. You get to watch them filming "Benidorm" the series from the pool if they are filming at the time. The only complaints were they didnt allow us to pay for late check out due to bookings although they did provide a place for bags and a shower room so didnt make too much of a difference to us and saved us â¬45. They wouldnt allow your own drinks around the pool expecting you to pay a high price for a bottle of water. Even having a security guard checking people as they go onto pool. This probably normal for other hotels but unfair as like us we were not on all inclusive and didnt want to pay several euros for a bottle of water whe you could by 8 litres in the shop next door for â¬1.50. Anyway generally fairly happy with our stay and would definetely think about staying here again. No real complaints with the rooms or hotel itself. More
Check in was a disgrace. Took almost an hour to get checked in. When I approached 2 managers, who were standing doing nothing, and suggested they could maybe help out at the desk, I was told they don't do check-ins as they don't need to !!!! As we were a party of 16 (all women aged 40-65) we were charged 50 euro each deposit and this was never mentioned when we booked with jet2. Check-out proved to be the worst experience I have ever been subjected to at any hotel. We were refused our deposits until reception got a call for the cleaners for every single one of our 8 rooms. This process took almost 2 hours and ruined our last morning. Plans to go shopping were up in the air because we had to wait at reception to have our money returned and we almost missed our coach transfer. We eventually got on the coach only to realise that 4 of our party had not had their passports returned by reception. Total nightmare. Absolutely disgraceful treatment.More
Don't believe the hype
Now where to start. In the brochure it advertises 5 pools not correct the bottom pool on the pelicanos side is off limits due to filming of the Benidorm series no mention of this anywhere not in the hotel or in the brochure. You are not allowed to take photos or get close has the moment you try there is someone the other side asking you to move. When we booked we spoke to jet2 on the phone and explained we needed a low floor as me and my partner don't like heights we also told them it was my partners birthday. So on arrival we were put on the 9th floor we when we questioned this we were told there was no mention of this on the booking they also stated it's also your birthday david which we then had to tell them no infact it was my partners so not a good start, after asking them to check for a lower floor the lowest they could provide was the 5th floor. We paid extra for half board big mistake the food was terrible. We ate in the restaurant 3 times yes they had a lot of choice but it didn't look appetising in the slightest we complained to both the jet2 rep and the restaurant manager neither did anything. Would I recommend this hotel no would I stay there again no. More
Will not be returning
Arrived the day before my birthday. Had requested a low floor and was told I would be on the eleventh floor. After a while was changed to the 5th floor. Not sure that the room I was given was the superior that I had paid for. Went for dinner in the first evening and didn't eat a thing the food looked terrible. Tried again a few days later and once again couldn't eat there. Had paid for half board and didn't use it at all. So wouldn't bother paying the extra. I complained to the lady at the dining room who said that guest services would be in touch and they didn't bother and the the Jet2 rep who said she would get back to me and try to refund the difference so I was B and B. But as usual heard nothing more. The hotel was okay, not great and not worth all the hype. Cannot use the pool area as filmed in Benidorm. No heated pools. Hotel is not with paying the extra for. There are much better places to stay in Benidorm which are a lot cheaper. Won't be returning! More
