We returned to the Pelicanos for our second stay with them in September 2012 and am so glad we did! Last year we were in a room overlooking the Ocas pool and this year wanted to overlook the main pool at the rear of the hotel (the one used in "Benidorm"). I'd read reviews on here that said the hotel would charge you extra for this, but I simply emailed the hotel before we arrived and requested a room on a high floor overlooking this pool, explaining that we were returning guests and would appreciate this. When we checked in, we were given a room on the 10th floor, overlooking said pool at no extra charge!
A tip if you have a late night flight (typically Stansted), the hotel has a luggage room (not widely advertised) that you can use for free and they can provide shower facilities too, so you can check out at 12:00 and enjoy the remainder of the day either in the hotel or out and about with the knowledge that your luggage will be safe - this certainly beats paying for a late check out.
The only gripe I had was that they changed the times for breakfast without proper notification, so we came down one morning as they were clearing away - there were no notices about it outside the restaurant, just a small one in the lifts. However, this hardly spoiled our holiday!
If we return to Benidorm again, we wouldn't hesitate to stay at the Pelicanos again as its so handy for the bars and Levante beach, plus the staff are all very friendly.
