Plenty of bars and restaurants open. Try Casa Chamaleons for great food, just up from Jupiter. Quite a few bars in Bonanza sq are closed in the winter months, as some of thesmaller ones dont have much inside seating.

Ivensa Sq has plenty of bars open, as does Av Bonanza with Woodies, The Lounge, Peacocks and the Junction to choose from. CJ`s Karaoke tends to get a good crowd in, especially thurs/fri/sat nights.

Make sure you go into Arroyo too, a more Spanish feel and some very nice bars too.

Lookout restaurant Otelli. Good pub grub at The Vine on Av Garcia Lorca of an evening too.

Breakfast at the Eagle Bar opposite Jupiter is excellent. although i think i have read they are closed thru Dec.

There is a post with the latest Buzz Magazine on the forum. many bars advertising their Xmas offerings/opening times in there.

Hi Jackie we were in Benal last xmas.It was quite quiet but the weather was brill.We found a good bar called The Halfpenny Bridge its facing the Sunset Beach beside cocos.Anyhow we had a great 3 course xmas dinner in there for 15 euro a head.It was really lovely and there was a group and the place was buzzing.You could buy 5 bottles of beer for 7 euro so its not dear for an irish bar.good luck and enjoy.Sean Paul Belfast,ps were giving benidorm a try this xmas

If you come down the hill from Jupiter and then just after the bend down the very steep hill to the left then as it levels out with a street on the left there are a few steps up to a pavement between some apartments and olive trees. Half way along this path on the left is a ramp/stairway which leads into the Quinta bar, there are wine barrels outside. Here there is very good food, reasonable drinks and entertainment most nights geared towards older people and suitable for children if present. No blue jokes or language. The bar is geared to serve the nearby La Quinta and Benal Beach timeshares but is open to anyone. It is very clean and customer friendly with both Spanish and English staff. I go at least twice a year and am never disappointed. Worth checking out and seeing if you need to book a christmas or new year dinner as it gets busy.
