Had a week full board in Poseidon Princess. Great hotel, position perfect and food fabulous, Spanish influenced but plenty of choice for those who don't love paella, tripe etc etc. Try it it's all great!
We usually visit Benidorm November time but March seems to be just as popular.
We covered everywhere I think, had great times on promenade- the AC/DC tribute in Daytona is a good night. The White lion on the prom is to us a new addition and perfect for looking out to sea.
Highlight as ever has to be Pablo Bloom. He just gets better and better, we caught him in Western Saloon, always a nice atmosphere in there.
Meatloaf in Jokers again proved to be a good choice and who can't laugh at the monkey puppet in Talk of The Town!
Oliver's bar in the old town made for a good nights people watching, moving inside as the chill got too much.
Day times were spent just wandering along the promenades, La Cala Finestrat always nice to end up at for a deserved coffee and brandy. A no 10 bus to Altea is a must for a climb up to the church then a wander along the prom ending in Albir. There is work going on at Altea along the seafront but it didn't detract from the atmosphere. We also got the tram to La Villajoyhosa which has a lovely seafront and perfect for a mornings stroll.
The bars leading towards the seafront from Benidorm tram station are worth an afternoons visit with tapas provided proving Benidorm is much more than The Square.
We did visit The Square on our first night (Saturday) bad move as we witnessed a vicious mass brawl from the veranda of Cafe Benidorm (which was trouble free)which has been commented about Social Media. This caused us to be more dubious of this area but we saw no further trouble. These things happen unfortunately, our course of action was to avoid the square, this has as much to do with our age as potential trouble, it really is (apart from Cafe Benidorm)for the under 25's.
All in all we had a great week, we chatted easily to everyone we happened to sit near in bars, the Spanish guests in our hotel welcomed us and we enjoyed daytime activities, the language difference causing no barrier. Laughter is universal.
Yes Benidorm is brash but it is not just one type of holiday, it really does have everything.
We definitely will be back.
