The Costa Blanca’s boldest resort
Benidorm is bold, brash and buzzing – just the way its thousands of returning visitors like it. Situated on the sun-soaked Costa Blanca, Benidorm is a high-rise, high-attitude haven for holidaymakers who like their holiday lively and loud. This larger than life destination is well-known for its beaches, bars and dedicated following of international tourists.
From bars to beaches
Benidorm comes alive after dark with comedians, cabaret, drag queens and clowns. Night-owls will find the majority of bars and pubs located in The Square, which is perfectly placed in Benidorm’s town centre. Keep the party going until sunrise on the ‘Top Road’, where you’ll find a cluster of super clubs and big name DJs. Daytime bliss can be found on Benidorm’s two stunning sweeps of beach, Levante to the east and Poniente to the west. Both have clean, soft sand and clear, safe water.
Places to eat, shop and see
Benidorm’s choice of restaurants and cafes is impressive; food ranges from Sunday roasts to gourmet gastronomy, from traditional Spanish tapas to McDonalds. Wander into the Old Town for more traditional eateries and a real taste of Benidorm’s authentic Spanish culture. With cobbled streets and a maze of shops and restaurants, the Old Town is a charming break from the electric atmosphere of modern Benidorm. A variety of waterparks, theme parks and nature reserves lie just outside the town centre. Venture further afield to Alicante (50 minutes by car) for streets lined with shops and a pretty port overlooked by a castle.
Things to do in Benidorm
On the beach in Benidorm
With over 1.2 miles of golden sand, Levante Beach is the perfect place for a day spent by the sea. Pick a spot, settle in the sunshine and relax, safe in the knowledge that there are key facilities such as toilets, showers and shops close by.
Sunbeds can be pricey so pack some beach towels to lie on.
Eat and drink in Benidorm
Benidorm Old Town is a world away from the bright lights and noise of its modern counterpart. The charming, traditional restaurants found here serve delicious tapas and fresh fish. Pull up a chair on the cobbled streets and enjoy an authentic Spanish dish whilst watching the world pass by.
Tapas are small, tasty dishes usually ordered in 4s or 5s; they’re the perfect size for sharing and for trying different things.
After drinks in The Square, hail a taxi and head to the epic Top Road. If you’re in the mood for dancing then this row of super-clubs will see you through to dawn – most of them are open until 8am. Penelopes and KU Benidorm have been going for years and come highly recommended.
Buying drinks in The Square will be cheaper than in the Top Road clubs themselves.
Shopping in Benidorm
Benidorm’s indoor market is situated on Calle Girona; it’s open every day other than Sunday and is especially popular with tourists, selling a variety of British goods. Exchange holiday money at Sheila’s or find your ideal holiday read at Browse Awhile Bookstore.
Cast members from ITV’s Benidorm are said to shop here whilst filming nearby.
Things to see in Benidorm
Aqualandia was Spain’s first water park and has earned a well-deserved reputation as being fun, safe and clean. There are water rides to suit every age and swimming level, from ‘infantile’ to ‘radical’ attractions. Exciting, relaxing and a great way to cool down on a hot day in the Spanish sun.
Keep the cost of the trip down by bringing your own food and drink, which can be enjoyed in pretty picnic areas.
Amigos Restaurant and Roof Terrace
Amigos Restaurant and Roof Terrace has rave reviews online, with customers praising the friendly staff, excellent food and charming atmosphere. Try the delicious Sangria, said to be the best in Benidorm, or the steak, which is cooked to perfection every time.
On Plaza Constiucion 4, is reasonably priced with fresh cocktails and a fun atmosphere. Take a seat in the sun on the terrace, Mojito in hand, and watch life in Benidorm Old Town pass you by. The owners will make you feel so welcome one visit won’t be enough.
Romeria del Corpus
The Romeria del Corpus is a traditional Andalusian fiesta that happens every year in June. It’s a vibrant, 3 day long festival which sees participants dress in colourful costume and perform dances. There’s usually a fairground and horse processions too.
Aqualandia in Benidorm
A must-visit destination for the family. This thrilling water park is home to a great range of slides and pools. There are some nice grassy areas to relax and eat. Try to buy tickets in advance.

Love this place
1st stayed here in 2013. This is a nice hotel with great staff. It has basic rooms, but when in Benidorm you don't stay in much! The price to stay here is fantastic. Great location too. I've stayed here 4 times over the years and I've never had 1 complaint to make yet!
The best thing about my stay was...Perfect base

the hotel was excellent. the staff could not have been more helpful. if they could not understand your query they got another member of staff to help. the room was clean and adequate for needs. we found that the food in the restaurant was excellent. every one was taken care of, vegetarian food was available at all meals. i liked how clean the hotel was but disliked the incline walking up to it.
The best thing about my stay was...the best thing about our stay was how helpful and happy the staff were.

Hotel was very clean. Bar Staff were lovely but Reception Staff were quite rude. Go all inclusive, either in package or on the day at hotel. Food quite bland. Would go again though, only around the corner from beach and main strip.

third time i have stayed this year. staff are friendly rooms cleaned every day. the restaurant food had a lot of different choices every day and it was different every day. the pool bar was open considering it is the end of november. you can use the spa of sister hotel DYNASTIC 1st visit free. its a 5 mins walk to morgans bar. which is the start of the so called strip. then its the BLACK CHICKEN. what an experience. its only downfall is its up a bit of a hill from the main road but only about 60 yards. there is a bus stop at bottom of the road though which will take you into the old town or out to places like ALBIR and GUADELEST [most visited place in spain]. the indoor market is across the road from it and the outdoor market sunday and a weekday is a 300 yard walk down the street facing. it is in walking distance of the beach 5 mins.also [god forbid] if you need the hospital that is in walking distance as well
The best thing about my stay was...i had a nice relaxing time there, no trouble, staff friendly, nice food, had a problem with patio door and they were up to fix it in 10 mins

Paul Donnelly, United Kingdom
No frills hotel but clean and great staff. There were a few groups of young boys there and loud, but well behaved lads. Did hear a few pensioners complaining to management about the noise but some people just love to moan. I have taken my 74 year old mother to this hotel in January for short breaks previously and can't complain. Food was fine and they did try to vary it.
The best thing about my stay was...Location
