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.

Our first stay in a hotel like this. Firstly it's huge spread over two sites with a large pool complex in the pelicanos site and a smaller pool near the entertainment stage on the ocas site. We opted for breakfast only which was a very varied buffet of hot and cold food. Plenty of healthy options on offer. We thought it was great. Rooms had full air con and a balcony. Very comfortable with a fridge. Pool complex was superb with multiple bars and eating places. Certainly best pool I've seen in a hotel of this type. But the real surprise was the quality of the entertainment and activities. Seemed to be something going on all the time. Aerobics and fitness sessions plus fun stuff for the kids. In evening there were live shows including mamma Mia and lion king, magicians, bands and best of all a mini circus. Staff seemed to work their socks off to please everyone. The hotel is situated near the east end of levante beach. About 20 minutes walk to old town. 5 minutes to beach and shops. Bus stop to altea and guadalest just around corner. All in all an excellent pleasant experience. More
Visited with 14 other girls, we stayed in the Ocas part of the hotel, the room was clean but we didn't have a balcony as it was classed as a family room (safety). The breakfast was great, lots of selection from full English to pancakes. The pools were fantastic! My only criticism was the step into the pool (last step was very deep). The manager was very helpful when one of the girls purses were taken whilst we were being checked in. Some of othger staff not so happy. The bar areas were kept clean. Hairdryer in our room and little fridge, would be good if had a kettle for that first cuppa in the morning.More
Amazing view to the Mountains
Amazing view to the main pool area and the Mountains from my balcony on the 10th floor, my 11-years daughter was happy to spend time with animation team. We enjoyed different fish at the main restaurant during lunch time.More
Cracking hotel only let down by some of the staff as we found some of them very rude especially the reception staff We stayed in the ocas which is gleaming and has fairly comfy beds and good air con The all inclusive was ok but nothing to write home about it. The day time entertainment was by far better than the guff on at night. The hotel is really busy and very very noisy The pools are stunning and clean but let down by the smelly drains I've stayed in far worse places but for Benidorm it's probably really goodMore
Centre to everything close to the beach rooms although dated were clean and spacious .A fridge was handy too.there was only 1 socket in the bathroom and another hidden behind a unit.cleaners came in everyday .staff were all lovely and friendly .lots to do around pool for the kids and keep fit for the adults. Entertainment every night. We only had breakfast but was one of the best we've been to no one would go hungry..something for everyone.coffee was a little tasteless but can't fault anything else .rented a safe and was 28 euro but got 10 back when leaving ..was queue for sunbeds but good thing is security was always doing the rounds and removed towels if they hadn't been back within the hour.pool bar is amazing ..will definitely be going back to this hotel and recommend to anyone More
