Benidorm Hotels & Benidorm Apartments
Benidorm hotels range from the high end to simple and affordable. You can crank up the budget to stay in plush hacienda-style mansions with terracotta-roofed villas and panoramic infinity pools, overlooking the surrounding sierras. Or, you can go in search of cheap hotels in Benidorm and opt for something a little more rustic: a beachside aparthotel with walking access to the sands; a local flat rental with bunkbeds for the whole family. And that’s not even mentioning the wealth of rustic eco lodges to be found in the Valencian hills, just a little further away from the party-mad centre. The extensive range of hotels in Benidorm will leave you spoilt for choice and you can choose your accommodation that caters to your taste and budget.
All About Benidorm
Just a mention of the name Benidorm is usually enough to set the mind going with thoughts of the shimmering yellow beaches of the Costa Blanca, long days of Spanish sun, long nights of wild partying and karaoke, or wholesome family adventuring in the shadow of the Valencian hills. Believe it or not, this now-booming medley of high-rise hotels and skyscrapers was once just a small, sleepy Spanish fishing village. Then came the redevelopments of the 1960s, converting its narrow bay on the Med into a bona fide resort hub, dotted with palm-spotted hotels in Benidorm and soaring buildings packed with cheap accommodation in Benidorm. Hotels in Benidorm old town are also a good option if you are looking for somewhere slightly more traditional.
Where to stay in Benidorm
The maze of narrow lanes and tower-shaded streets that is the Benidorm Old Town is now the hotel hub of the city. It’s packed to the brim with local guesthouses and family friendly stays, and has its fair share of affordable Benidorm apartments to boot. Meanwhile, there are other Benidorm Spain hotels on offer in the blocks to the west of the Old Town, where the shores of Costa Blanca converge on sleepless party bars and quayside seafood joints. Then comes the slightly quieter area of Poniente in the west, which has bargain resorts with big suites overlooking the beach – perfect if you’re trying to get a cheap hotels and apartments in Benidorm for the whole family.
Top things to see and do on your Benidorm holiday
Benidorm has shouldered its way to the top of the holidaying scene on Spain’s Costa Blanca with a line-up of attractions for the whole family. You can get the adrenaline-pumping with the twisting slides and sloshing wave pools of the Aqualandia water park, or you can encounter bottlenose dolphins in the wild. Chilled sessions on the beaches of Playa de Levante and Poniente are also a popular thing to do here, and so are long nights of partying in the karaoke joints along the marina. Or you could choose your Benidorm hotel close to the beach to enjoy the stunning sea views and easy access to the lively bars and cafes.
Nightlife in Benidorm
The so-called Square is the undisputed epicentre of nightlife in Benidorm. Sat at the intersection of Calle Girona and Avenue de Mallorca, this pulsing, sleepless clutch of wild bars and cocktail joints, raucous Latin cantinas and English pubs, rarely fails to get the hedonism flowing. It’s open virtually all night long in the summer season and comes packed with excellent drinks deals for patrons on the path towards inebriation under the Spanish stars. Of course, Benidorm also has something of a more refined side, which pops up with the chic yachting clubs along the marina, or with the family restaurants in Poniente bay. Many hotels in Benidorm also feature nightclubs and pubs so that you can enjoy the vibrant nightlife of the resort without needing to step out.
What to Eat in Benidorm
While Benidorm might not be the best place to come for authentic Spanish tapas, it’s certainly perfect if you prefer your gastronomy of the international sort. The heart of the city, from the Old Town to the strips of Levante, is packed too, bustling with fast food outlets and kebab-touting holes in the wall. You can taste your way through Tex-Mex and tacos, sizzling American BBQ and Italian pizzas. Or, you can settle in one of the many expat pubs for a selection of English cuisine – think Sunday roasts, fried breakfasts and more.
Shopping in Benidorm
After bagging those bargain cheap hotels in Benidorm, you should have plenty of euros left to indulge in the shopping strips of the Old Town area. Start in bustling Avenida Martinez Alejos, where shoe emporiums, tailors, fashion sellers and more all crowd the arcades before spilling out onto the wide flagstones of Plaza Mayor. The large shopping mall at La Marina has even more in the way of branded boutiques, while Avenida Uno on Calle Gambo is the place to go if you’re after chichi labels and big designer brands.
The Price of Things in Benidorm
Thanks to the abundance of cheap flights and hotels in Benidorm, this part of the Costa Blanca is well-primed for low cost holidays. Benidorm is served by oodles of budget airlines that fly in and out of nearby Alicante, where it’s possible to get return connections from London for as little as € 60. When it comes to accommodation, you can expect to bag some cheap hotels and apartments in Benidorm in the Old Town region or close to the beach for around just € 55 a night, while eating out won’t break the bank either – think in the region of € 12 per head for a meal and € 2.5 for a large beer (even less during happy hour).

Gran Hotel Bali, benidorm
Trevor dunkerton, United Kingdom
Very impressive building. Excellent swimming pool area. Room very tidy and cleaned every day. Food very average. Food not even luke warm some days, and you could break your teeth on the bacon some mornings. Although rated 4 stars it is nearer 2 star. Position on the far end of Poniente beach is no good if you are wanting to enjoy the nightlife in center of Benidorm. I liked the position as it is a lovely walk along the seafront to the center. Taxi fares differed from 10 euros to 15 euros from Jokers bar. They all went different ways. Maybe the road works affected the journeys but I doubt it. All in all I enjoyed my stay but would prefer to be nearer the center.
The best thing about my stay was...Beautiful views

attention to detail - essential!!
Lynn & Stephen Birchall, Wigan
having arrived we were given our room cards and off we went to the lifts - great until we got out, there is a serious lack of lighting on the hallways to the rooms had to use the light on my mobile to find the card slot to the door of the room - as my husband is sight impaired this was difficult as i had to guide him as well as hanging on to the luggage, the staff in the bar areas appreciate a little Spanish being spoken to them -come on make an effort brits!!
The best thing about my stay was...the food was excellent - i have read some reviews about it being cold/lukewarm - but this is how things are in Spain, the staff were very attentive, at accomodating people with disabilities - THANK YOU!!!

Stayed here for a week in March 2018. As always, it was a great stay. The hotel is in a great location with a bus stop outside and a Mercadona 2 minutes walk away. Stayed on a half board basis and food, as always, was good. Only criticism would be that you have to pay for WiFi and it is very slow and intermittent. Also, even though you have paid, you can only use one device unless you pay for more.
The best thing about my stay was...Great location of hotel

holiday at half term
Dove Johal, UK
We stayed here last year at the same time. There are a few changes which we didn’t like- you have to queue to get and order your drink. We were told they had no smaller bottles if water but when pushed they provided us with them? Overall it’s a good hotel and the reception staff are extremely helpful and are faultless. They offer a good value for the service provided. It’s a bit noisy on the lower floors but you expect that as there is a bar and club downstairs. There were mostly Spanish guests at the hotel at the time of staying. The food provided us OK but you do get tired of it after a few days and it’s the same in both restaurants.
The best thing about my stay was...The reception desk were great
