Benidorm 3 Star Hotels – Independent Reviews

Golden Rule…

Don’t rush in and book direct with your chosen hotel. Benidorm hotels have set prices – and they very rarely offer decent discounts to individual tourists. But the reputable agencies book in bulk -and can negotiate very large discounts. There are plenty of good agencies online. So shop around!

What is the biggest problem Spain is facing?

It’s hard to believe that the fabulous Sol Pelicanos Ocas is only a three star hotel. This is in fact two hotels in one – and if it looks familiar to you it’s because much of the filming for the hit TV series Benidorm is done here! So if you like celebrity spotting, this is the place to come! This complex boasts 5 swimming pools, including a spectacular tropical lagoon – possibly the best hotel pool in Benidorm! It has palm trees, roman columns, jacuzzis, and you can enjoy a drink at the in-pool bar.

The rest of the complex is great oo. Excellent buffet restaurants, comfortable rooms, and some nice lounge areas for relaxing and meeting up with friends. Also has separate kid’s pools and play areas. One of the best! Search online for bargain deals – especially out of season.

5 Star treatment at 3 Star prices! The Hotel Palm Beach is a class act.
