We have been back nearly two weeks and it’s fair to say that while me and my husband miss our wonderful holiday in Benidorm, it’s our toddler who misses it the most! Miss H had an amazing week full of swimming, dancing and eating ice creams ? Everyday since we’ve been home she has spoken about her holiday; from asking what Flinstone and Barney are doing now, suggesting Benidorm as a day out to telling us she she lives in a hotel in Spain!
We booked our holiday in Benidorm with www.onthebeach.co.uk and stayed at the fabulous 3* Sol Pelicanos Ocas, you may recognise the hotel as its swimming pool is featured in the ITV Series Benidorm (we were lucky to catch them filming while we were there). The hotel is brilliant for kids; it has 5 swimming pools, 2 of which are toddler pools, it runs a daily mini club programme for the over 5’s (younger children can join in if accompanied by an adult), every night there is a mini disco before the evening show. The hotel has a flinstone theme; there is a flinstone themed park, a flinstone themed restaurant and a character from the show visits the mini club everyday!
In terms of Benidorm itself, gone are the days when it was a run down part of Spain overrun with drunken Brits; yes there is the odd stag and hen group that you will bump into in the evening if you visit the strip but if your a family staying in a family hotel such as the pelicanos I doubt you will see one all holiday. Benidorm has had a lot of investment in the past few years and this is evident with brand new architecture, new hotels and restaurants. It has amazing golden sandy beaches (equipped with free outdoor gyms if you like that sort of thing!). It has plenty of places to eat and stop for ice creams 🙂
At an average cost of £1200 for a week, including flights and B&B, for a family of 3 can you afford to ignore this Spanish treasure?!
