Benidorm

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).

Good and not so good

Hotel is situated in a good spot just a few streets (up a gentle incline) from the middle of Levante beach, this is the second time Ive been here and it has been recently upgraded, lots of good points (but some not so good). Good bits Food choice is excellent Rooms are clean with good air conditioning and great power showers Very clean hotel. Not so good: Sun loungers have been replaced with ones that are only flat (i.e. you cant incline so you can lie down only) Maids start knocking on doors from 8 am onwards to clean rooms Lifts never seem to come quick so we used the stairs most days There is no poster showing the entertainment for the night (or week) only a digital screen which constantly refreshes so you either have to wait a few minutes until it displays or not bother, as a result we didnt bother and went out every night. Layout in the restaurant was poor, several islands of food but some had no logical order, ie. no bowls next to breakfast cereals, toaster on different location to bread, childrens food choice was often cold

The best thing about my stay was...
