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 got back from girls holiday, 9 of us in total stayed in the ocas. Pool was lovely, rooms very clean, modern and bed comfortable, extra pillows given when we asked and they even changed one of the beds as it was very springy. Special thanks to bar staff and especially my friend pedro what a lovely man. Nothing was a bother, 2 min walk to beach. Food was amazing couldn't believe how good it was. Entertainment was ur basic all inclusive but great for kids and they worked very hard. Can't wait to return x More

Oh Dear.

Arrived 1st April 2014 for two weeks,1st booked into Sol Pelicanos to find rooms very basic, no hair dryer etc., but all available at an extra cost, so upgraded to Ocas at a charge of 18 euro extra per night, the upgraded room had just been refurbished and was spotless, our room being 801. The upgrade gave us the use of a fridge, a hair dryer in the bathroom, a flat screen TV and some additional power sockets and that was about it. The room was sparsely decorated with no artwork at all with no seating apart from the bed and the balcony area. One big surprise was that Wi-Fi was available but at an additional cost, it's free in Mc Donald's and that just about some's it up. We had booked half board and found that any drinks you may require at the evening meal are all chargeable and that includes water, water being charged a 2 euro for a 500 ml bottle. The restaurants are of course smoke free but if you are a half board customer and wish to take a cup of tea following your breakfast out to the smoking area you will be stopped as our friends were by the restaurant police, evidently all inclusive guests are permitted to do this !!!!!. The food available is very predictable, I will say no more on this subject, the hotel has a 3 star rating but in my opinion should be rated somewhere between 2 & 3, I believe the hotel is living off the back of the Benidorm filming, to their credit the pool areas are excellent. Would not stop here again, will return next visit to the Flamingo Oasis.More

Dave W,

Best food ever !!!

The service from all areas of the Hotel was exceptional,friendly,helpful and courteous.The Management completed walkabouts at least twice a day ensuring that everthing was running smoothly.The food was the best we've ever had,the choice and quality was exceptional, more like a 5 star resturant than a 3 star Hotel.More

Happy Days

We were a mixed age group. Two pensioners, 1 45yr old, 17yr old 15yr old and 9yr old twins. Each and everyone had a brilliant time. the twins found friends and made full use of the pools and play areas. the teenagers lounged by the pool alternating between sunbathing, swimming and the snack bar. all the others just enjoyed the sun, the bar and just generally relaxing. The rooms were clean and roomy with good bathroom facilities. the rooms were cleaned daily with bed change and towel change where required. The whole Hotel was kept spotless. The food was excellent, a very wide choice that catered for every possible taste. The only place I have been with champagne with breakfast. I would have no hesitation to return. The only minor glitch was the Wi-Fi. We paid the 30 Euros for the week but only one person could use it, they had to sign out and click forget before anyone else could go on. It did not deter our holiday but with two teenagers wanting to go on all the time it was a bit of a nuisance.More
