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 three adult pools, two 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.
Buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Beer, wine and soft drinks with lunch and dinner and locally produced alcoholic drinks, soft drinks, concentrated juices, hot and cold drinks.
Snacks 10.30-18.00 and 21.30-23.00.
The hotel-run Flintstones themed Bamm-Bamm club is for children aged 5 to 12 years with activities like arts and crafts, sports games, performances for shows and Fred's Party. The morning session is free, whilst there's an extra charge for the afternoons. There needs to be at least 10 children staying to play for the club to be open. Under 5s can come along too with an adult.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all served here. There's plenty on offer from show cooking, salads, meats, fish and desserts. Children will love the Italian corner with its pizza and pasta dishes and there are themed evenings during the summer months. Highchairs are also available.
Superior twin rooms are in the Ocas building. They have a feature wall and matching soft furnishings giving it a stylish feel. They sleep up to three and have centrally controlled air-conditioning from July to September.

Have just returned from a week spent at the Sol Pelicanos Ocas and it certainly was a surprising holiday. I had friends turn up at the hotel as a surprise for my birthday. I received a bottle of champagne compliments of the hotel which was again a lovely surprise. Now about the hotel, the Ocas is very clean but preferred to eat in the Pelicanos and again at the pool bar in the afternoons. Food was varied but longer than a week I think it would become quite boring. Rules in the hotel about not being able to get more than two drinks at a time even if they were not alcoholic and we were all inclusive seemed stupid, as was the rule that you couldn't move a table into the sunshine but had to sit in the shade in a cold drafty position because that's where they had to be but otherwise it was well run. The evening entertainment left a lot to be desired but then as most people appeared to be on either a stag or hen party trip they did not seem to spend their evenings in the hotel but returned and very often extremely loudly in the early hours of the morning. all in all though it was an experience.More

Great Value & Very Clean
I reviewed Trip Advisor before booking this hotel and must say it exceeded my expectations. Remember where it is....
The staff were just fantastic, great attitude, very happy and attentive. The buffet breakfast was plentiful and really very good, choice was huge, by example any style of egg was available.
The room was just fine and exceptionally clean, the bed was a little firm for me, but that's personal choice, it was fine. The shower was fantastic, hot and powerful.
Overall, for the amount I paid I would not hesitate staying here again. It was close to the beach, at the right end of the strip, and therefore in easy reach of everything, but somewhat less noisy.
We didn't use the hotel too much, so cant judge that element, but the pools looked great.More

A nice hotel that covers the basics!
My work mate needed a break away from it all, so another work mate and myself agreed to go away with her to Benidorm on a girls holiday. She had previously stated at the Sol Pelicanos Ocas last year with her son, so we thought why not?!
I had been very nervous after I read some of the reviews on trip advisor, but to be honest they must have been either expecting way too much from a 3* hotel or had a very freakish one off poor time.
We arrived late morning and were placed in our newly updated accommodation very swiftly. The room smelt very clean, and I mean bleach clean. So, that was a good sign as bathroom was spotless and we had plenty of fresh clean towels. We had plenty of space to unpack and even got the safe filled with personal belongings (after reading the past reviews!). Down side to the room to begin with was that it wasn't a balcony room and the window didn't open very far at all, to let fresh air in (loss of a review point!) to be honest we used the room minimally and it was ideal. But... The walls are way too thin!!! You'd think after drinking copious amounts of alcohol in the evening down the strip that you would go out like a light, not hear a thing. But not me, I could clearly hear the man next door snoring his head off through the wall every night I was there. Walls definitely too thin. I wore ear plugs the rest of the holiday! (Loss of another review point!)
We only went bed and breakfast whilst we were there. You can not fault the choice of things to eat for breakfast! There were options of full English, pastries and cakes, cereal, meat and cheese, omelettes made fresh in front of you, fresh fruit and tea, juice and coffee. They catered for diabetics, coeliacs etc as well.
The pools were ok. I went in twice and got out very fast. No heat in them at all! For April weather I feel that they must do this! The majority of people weren't even attempting it and those who did uttered a number of very 'selective' words so the whole pool could hear how cold the pool was.
Staff catered so well especially with the filming of "Benidorm" and this kept many customers happy just watching the BBC film.
The entertainment crew were great, we joined in with Zumba and the darts competition. We only saw one nights entertainment of "Mama Mia" . Again it was good, all mimed. Maybe the crew possibly could learn the lines in English instead of Spanish. It would make it so much better!
So if you are after a good solid basic base for a hotel in Benidorm the Sol is the place. I would suggest getting a room in the updated Ocas, possibly anything on floor 5 and above, away from the lift and facing the pool for a balcony.More
