Trip was for a girls long weekend ( 5 nts over the recent Bank Hol ) and booked through Low Cost Holidays who had the best price.
Emailed the hotel in advance to see if there was any chance of being in the sister hotel ( Ocas ) as it had only just re opened following a recent refurb.At check in we were told we had been allocated the Ocas and adjacent rooms for our party of 4.
Rooms were lovely - brand new with plenty of cupboard space, great walk in shower and decent tv. Didn't realise that only rooms on one side of the hotel had balconies. Fortunately we got these and were facing the pool.Fridge in the room also - which we found very useful. Safe in the room 2.50 Euros per day with a 5 Euro deposit for the key.
Location of the hotel is very central. Almost opposite Neptunes Bar ( from the Benidorm TV series ) 5 mins walk to the beach and 15 mins to the old town. Surrounded by bars, shops and restaurants.
Pool was quite small but guests can use the larger pool areas of the Pelicanos.Plenty of sunbeds even though people did start reserving them at 7.30am!!! Public areas spotless and found the staff pleasant and helpful. Restaurant was typical buffet style with plenty of choices for both breakfast and evening meals ( hot and cold options ). We booked on a half board basis but you could upgrade to all inclusive if you wanted to.
Had a great short break in Benidorm but would not choose to travel over the Bank Holiday again due to the sheer volume of stag and hen parties. The majority of the ones we encountered were loud ( often at 4.00am ) using bad language and often naked in the hotel corridors. Don't get me wrong all for having a good time myself - but just found some of this behaviour totally inappropriate especially as there were young families in the hotel. The Ocas is a lovely new property let's just hope these large groups don't spoil it !!!
