Sol Pelicanos Ocas by Melia
Ranked #33 of 191 Hotels in Benidorm
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 21, 2013

We stayed in the Ocas and the room had recently been referbished so it was really clean, high standard, very large. Down side is no balcony, we asked 3 times if we could change to a balcony room and where given different reasons as to why we couldnt each time, by the reception staff. They include we hadnt paid for a balcony room (we had it blatently says it on my confirmation), we would have to pay €18 per day to upgrade to a pool view (we dont mind not having a pool view just want a balcony) and we can move to the pelicanos but the rooms arent as nice so we would should just stay in Ocas.
I believe the hotel is very buy just for the fact Benidorm is filmed there, strip that back and would have a hotel who just wants to make as much money from the british guests as possible. You have to pay for everything extra you want, balcony, late checkout, wi fi is expensive, kettle.

We have a great time in Benidorm and would recommend it to anyone but maybe think twice about choosing this hotel.

Just home this afternoon from a 10 day hol at the Pelicanos /Ocas. This was our 2nd stay at the hotel and will be going back next year. As a family of Four, this hotel is everything you need to make a perfect holiday. My son Jack, 4 years old, has had an absolute ball. The entertainment has a little for everyone, kids are well occupied with mini disco and can also have a part in the main show. The pools are excellent with many daytime activities. Go all inclusive if poss, defo get your money's worth. The rooms are good. last year with only 3 of us we stayed in the pelicanos, but this year we stayed in the Ocas one of the family rooms with our new adition. Very spacious bright and airy. Maid changes towels & beddin everyday. Food is typical Spanish / English. Plenty to choose from. The entertainment staff are friendly & brilliant with the kids. Lucas is by far the best, also David & Mario the lifegaurd always greet with smiles and conversation . You can tell they love working at the hotel, so a friendly smiling face goes down well when your on holiday. We have been told by our 4 year old son, that we will be going back next year to see Lucas and swim in the "top" pool

hotel was lovely however a little misleading in its pics and description. It sells itself advertising a swim up pool bar, however this was off limits as it was being used to film Benidorm at the time as was half the pool area which was closed off! however other than this the hotel was very clean and luxurious, towels changed every day and rooms left spotlessly clean, in a great location for beach and local bars alike and staff very helpful.only recomendation would be to heat up the pool a little! it was freezing.

Dear ally a, thank you for sharing here your personal experience among us and of course, for having chosen Sol Pelícanos Ocas to spend your holidays in Benidorm. Regarding to our swim up bar, as you can see on our official website, it is open only in summertime, in fact we are opening it this week!, so you could take advantage of this coming back during this summer and we will make sure that the pool it is going to be warm and amazing. Thank you also for your kind words in reference to our staff, especially our maids, we all always do our best to satisfy our customers and your lines encourage us to continue making our customers live unforgettable experiences. We hope to see you again soon!. Best regards, Mar Sierra, E-Guest Experience Manager

Stayed for 9 night at the ocas in june, wonderful hotel, the staff were so friendly and helpful, the room was very modern clean and spacious. The food was fantastic, the pool was wonderful. Couldn't really fault it, it's in a fantastic location, 3 minute walk the beach and plenty of shops restaurants and bars right on the door step. Would highly recommend it.

This was a recent family holiday for which we booked two rooms, one for myself and my husband and another for my son, daughter-in-law and two young grandchildren.We could not fault the food ,although some reviews differed with our opinion on some reviews i read beforehand ,and we were given the pool view and double bed room we requested. The children,s entertainment was well run with the team doing a good job. The only small frustration we found was on check in which did take about half an hour as a few coaches seemed to arrive together almost at the same time,which i guess the Hotel could not be blamed for this. We would all return to this hotel on our next visit to Benidorm, and looking at the Sol Pelicanos on the Ocas side i think we all agreed we would ask for the same older part being the Pelicanos not the Ocas,but again this is just a personal choice. The balconies over the front entrance of the hotel did experience more noise in the early hours from people on the road outside.We will be looking forward to another stay here again next year.

Room Tip: rooms at the side or rear are quieter than the rooms at the front

just back from a week at sol pelicanos and enjoyed it.room was clean and comfy with a great view of the pool area.all staff were welcoming and helpful and the hotel is clean and well turned out.the food was more 4 star than 3 with a blinding selection for all.plenty of room in the dining room as in all other places like the bar/entertainment areas.the only fault was the pool area used in the tv series Benidorm was closed off all week as they was filming,however on days they wasent filming it still remained closed.overall enjoyed our stay and if we visit Benidorm again we would choose this hotel...

Room Tip: for a view...poolside..for quiet rearside..
