1. Re: 1st time

Hi there

There is nowhere on the CDS that is anywhere near Benidorm i'm afraid.

When are you thinking of coming? If Live Entertainment is your main reason for coming then i think you will be very disappointed... For many reasons most of the acts that used to work here will not be returning this year, a few venues have closed down leaving only a couple left.

It really depends on how important it is to you. British bars etc you will find in abundance, especially on Benalmadena Costa etc...

Any further information please feel free to post - but as far as Torremolinos is concerned it is a mainly Spanish resort now so doubt very much it will suit your needs.

The Montemar area may be a good place for you. It's close to the Marina at Benalmádena and not much further to La Carihuela with its of bars and restaurants.

There are also quite a few "Brit" bars in the Montemar area, many get good reviews on TA.

Try the Sol Aloha Puerto, Sol Timor or Riu Nautilus for hotels.

However, if you prefer Benalmádena you could do worse than the Bonanza/Ibensa Square area. The Jupiter/Minerva apartments are very close to all the bars, some of which have regular live acts.

As CB states in post 1, there is nowhere else in Spain with the number of cabaret type bars as Benidorm.

However, there are still half a dozen bars with live acts and/or Karaoke, and a few hotels that allow access to the cabaret/entertainment to non residents. So all is not lost.

There are far more activities to do daytime in Benalmadena than in Benidorm. Sealife, Dolphinarium, Cable car, Marina to name a few. Easy access to neighbouring towns of Torremolinos and Fuengirola by bus or train. This then gives the option of waterparks, Crocodile park and the Zoo.
