I stayed here with my husband and 4 year old child. Really nice hotel, lovely pool but cold!!! Great location right near the beach. The food is good and lots of it . Very clean and a good service. My only complaint was the kids club was not running and this was half term!! There was enough children they were just not prepaired to do it. We did struggle at night for entertainment for my daughter, everything starts so late. I would go back here again but not out of season with children.

this is our second visit to this hotel and we have not been dissapointed. good food with plenty of choice, they cater more for the english at this hotel, the rooms were roomy as we had three beds in our room and there was still plenty of room. the pool is wonderful we were in it every day as the weather was great, you could also use the pool at the ocas which is more of a sun trap. we travelled with first choice and wasnt at all dissapointed which made it a very enjoyable holiday.

Stayed at this hotel in October with a group of 17 (mature) lads. When the hotel was booked the agent / hotel sold us an all inclusive stay, however on arrival we were informed that the Pelicanos doesn't do "All Inclusive" but "Soft Inclusive" which is full board and free drinks with meals. As this mix up was the hotels / agents fault they advised us that they would waive the 100 euro per room deposit levied on single sex groups. Naturally at the first meal our group of lads made the most of the free drinks until the management decided that we had to leave the resteraunt even though we were perfectly well behaved. Having renegged on the all inclusive drinks at meal times option the hotel management then decided that they did want a 100 euro deposit for each room and instead of simply pushing a note under the door advising us of this, they waited until we had left for breakfast and locked us all out of our rooms causing chaos and confusion. We eventually sorted it out but the attitude of the management at this hotel stinks. So does the food, it's the worst hotel food I've ever come across. And the beds are rock hard as well. Avoid if you can. If you must stay here, go B & B and eat out at the 1000's of very cheap resteraunts around Benidorm A pint of beer at the bar was 3.30 as opposed to 1 euro a pint in most Benidorm bars. Benidorm, as usual was brilliant.

My partner, 2 year son & myself have just returned (13/10/09) from a weeks stay at the Pelicanos. You wont know until you arrive wether your staying at the Pelicanos or Ocus. Do keep this in mind. When we arrived the reception area was extremely busy with people booking in. Staff were extremely nice and apologised for our 20 minute wait. We were given a large room to accomadate us all, plus buggy and luggage. First impressions of staff and hotel were excellent and this was only reconfirmed during the rest of our stay. Reception and lounge area were very impressive. Room was a great size for our needs, TV had a number of English speaking channels. Bathroom even came with shower gel, shampoo and hand wash. Having seen 'Benidorm' TV series we could not wait to see the pool area. It was certainly worth waiting on. 'Stunning' would not do it justice. Best hotel pool we have ever been to. A small kids pool and larger round pool will meet you as you go up steps past The Flintstones kids area. The huge main pool containing jaccuzis, 2 fountains and a pool bar is surrounded by plenty of beds. We stayed on a B&B basis and found the hot and cold food to be very good and varied to suit all tastes. The number of steps around hotel (to & from pool area) wont suit families with buggys and people with mobility problems. Any noise caused by drunken people returning home at night or from traffic on road outside was stopped by simply closing balcony door. Cafe at pool was very expensive with a pint of beer costing £3.20, small bottle of water and cans of soft drinks £2.40. Shop next door is much cheaper. Hotel is located 5-10 min walk from beach and nightlife starts just across the road. Hotel gives the feeling of being a 4 Star and we would definately return again in the future.

we went on the 25th of september for a week, eleven family members, ages ranged from 11-61. great hotel, pool was excellent, rooms excellent. we went half board, the breakfast and evening meal was fantastic, help yourself and most family members just ate and ate it was so good! cleaners did an excellent job in all our rooms everyday, the hotel and grounds were very clean. I couldn't fault this hotel as the standard and food was fantastic and the pool was the best one I have ever seen and a joy to swim in. All family members rated it as brilliant and I wouldn't hesitate to go back and stay there. we stayed at the pelicanos hotel not the ocas next door.

After looking forward for 12 months for this holiday, we were devasted at the lack of facilities for the wheelchair user. There are no disabled toilets available. Unable to take the wheelchair to either pool as there are steps up and down to both areas The bathroom door was too narrow to fit a wheelchair in. Whilst the food and menu were excellent, the dining room was too tightly packed to manouvre a wheelchair around. Overall i would say that for the able bodied the hotel was a good place but it certainly didnt cater for the disabled and wheel chair users alike.
