Hotel Sol Pelicanos/Ocas  


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.

Just returned from Benidorm where we had an excellent holiday at the Sol Pelicanos Ocas. Rooms were clean and well maintained with maid service every day. Everything you need beach, pool, walks were all in immediate access. Lovely walking to the old town and exploring and then the beach the other-side. Only downside was some noise but we expected that as there where many stag/hen parties in the area.More

The food was disgusting and uncooked

me and my family went to this hotel all inclusive we must of ate at the hotel about 5 times in the whole 2 weeks we stayed there.The food was vile and always the same the meat was all uncooked and it was always cold, one day i told the waiter that my brothers chicken was red and she replied 'well its chicken' in a rude manner she took the plate off me and took it in to the kitchen with no apology atall. We had better meals at all the other restaurants, we hardy ever drank at this hotel either. The first night i pulled my quilt back and i had a brown hair in my bed it was disgusting. The noise round the hotel at night is horrendous people always screaming and shouting down the corridors at stupid hours of the morning. The chair on the balcony was obviously broke because my brother sat on one one night and it collapsed and he fell to the floor so went and told reception and they brought us another one but didnt take the faulty one back with them so when the cleaners cleaned the next day and moved the faulty one back on the balcony we didnt no which one was which!! The cleaners were lovely lady always polite, one day my brother leaned on the wooden paneling outside are room and it fell off the wall!! The lifts always take ages to come up and there is hardly and room in them.Would defo not stay at this hotel again ever total rubbish.More

great stay

Thought we had booked to stay in Ocas but on arrival were told we were in Pelicanos and it would cost 18 euros a night more to stay in Ocas. Check in was long and not very efficient but after that everything was great. Our room was clean and had everything we needed. Plenty of hot water and a good shower. Breakfast was excellent. Good location for beach,More

first holiday abroad

Hi we travelled to Benidorm as a first holiday last Sunday. 3 Adults and Two children. We arrived at the hotel at 11:30pm told it was next door, went next door never waited that long, Very happy with our rooms as one was a family room and the other was a single room. We went all inclusive would highly recommend. Had a brilliant time and are looking to go back. The only problem I had was that of a morning people putting towels on the sun beds to save them even thought they never went around the pool till after dinner especially with having children like to watch them in the pool. Loved the stay here, all staff very friendly. I would like to say Thank You to all the staff for making our first holiday very special. The Doyle FamilyMore

Does it get any worse than this?

I have just returned from my holiday and had a terrible time at this particular hotel we arrived at 12pm on the 1st of April only to be met with an hour and a half long queue at reception when we eventually got to the desk we were told our rooms weren't ready until 2pm and we could put our luggage in the room beside reception there was no room to put our cases in there so we had to take them with us to the cafe down the road when we returned to the desk at quarter past two there was another queue of 10 mins we had to wait in when we were seen by someone she said she didn't know if the rooms were ready and had to call somebody to make sure she said our rooms were ready for us now and was we were given our keys we discovered we were on the 11th floor after previously requesting a low floor when we booked with you when we got to our rooms everyones except mine was ready i was met with an ignorant obnoxious maid who shouted at me in spanish and shut the door in my face so i went next door to my relatives room to wait until my room had been finished i was kept waiting a further 40 minutes whenever i kept checking back the maid was still in the room so i left it a further 10 minutes went to check and the maid wasn't there she had finished and never even had the courtesy to let me know when i went in the room it was dusty and dirty it had fingerprints on the mirrored wardrobe dusty shelves inside the wardrobe a light not working in the bathroom it was very dark had to keep the shower curtain back otherwise i couldn't shower when i removed the shower head from the stand it had green mould on it dirty towels on the bathroom rail the tv remote was taped up i assume to keep the back on the battery compartment but when i checked there was no batteries inside it the television had a button missing which means i couldn't turn the volume down the lamp by the bed was hanging off the wall the balcony was filthy it had what looked like tea stains on the railings the table and chairs were also dirty there was no maiden to dry clothes on the television had ring marks on the top like somebody had left a cup of tea on there the floor of the room had brown stains on it i had to go to the supermarket and buy two packets of anti-bacterial wipes and clean the room up which is the last thing you should have to do on holiday there was only one plug socket in the room to use everything on and that was in the bathroom next to the sink a bit dangerous for electricals you would of thought no fridge or hairdryer in the room the bathroom tap was only one you'd turn it left for hot right for cold but when i put it on cold it ran lukewarm never completely cold water when i went to bed that night i pulled back the covers and the pillowcases had sweat stains on it what looked like mascara marks and a dark brown strand of hair i turned the pillowcase over it also had mascara marks on it so i just had to make do the sheet also had a small hole in it which was still there the day i left which meant the bedding hadn't been changed for my entire 11 day stay the toilet suddenly stopped flushing on the 2nd night so i went to reception to report it at 7pm waited two hours no one came so went down again at 9pm she assured me someone was on their way in 5 minutes i waited until 10pm then somebody came and fixed it doesn't take away the fact that i'd stayed in my room all night waiting the air conditioning was terrible it had a hot and cold setting the hot was boiling hot the cold came out warm and very weak it was boiling hot in the room all night and every night there after i couldn't open the balcony door for air because of the noise of all the local bars and also the entertainment from the pool area it was hell trying to get to sleep i often woke up with a headache because of the heat the shower gel pump and soap pump in the bathroom were both empty and weren't refilled during my stay good job i took my own soap i went up to my room one night and my key wouldn't work i tried 3 times had to go all the way back down to reception to be given a spare key had to wait 30 minutes because they were checking in a hen party the food in the restaurant was stone cold several times and the cutlery always had food reminents on it, it was almost impossible to find a clean knife and fork when i went back to my room for a shower one day i could smell bleach but thought nothing of it when i'd finished i took the big towel off the rail to find it had bleach all over it and i couldn't dry myself on it i had to use two hand towels the hotel rooms also had mosquitos flying around them i was covered in bites every morning when i woke i went for breakfast one morning and had some bacon on some crusty cobs as soon as i took a bite i knew something was wrong it tasted like garlic bread when i looked the bacon had green bits on it so i spat it into a tissue and was ill for two days afterwards overall i can't say a single good thing about this hotel it was just one bad day after another and my worst holiday so far. I was so happy to leave it and return home.More
