Cozy, basic accommodation located in Urbanizacion La Siesta in Rincon De Loix. Very quiet and comfortable with lovely pool and good balance of Spanish/British tourists and residents. 5 minutes walk to the seafront and to the fantastic Levante beach, and the huge variety of bars, cafes and restaurants of the area.
Amenities were basic but all essentials were provided and owner was there to meet and greet, solve any problems quickly (we had one non functioning light fixed within a couple of hours) and was there to say goodbye.
We speak Spanish and the Spanish neighbours really appreciated this.
Benidorm caters for the British - but if you know and understand this before you go then you will have a great time. It is less expensive than places like Mallorca or Marbella because there is so much competition. Taxis are plentiful and cheap, but the local bus service is also frequent, and cheap and easy to use. Lots of people rent out mobility scooters - but we preferred to walk.
We last visited Benidorm 40 years ago - and boy has it changed - with a skyline to match Manhattan's now and all sorts of food, drink and entertainment available.
A nice little place for a couple to stay whether you wish to eat in or out everything you need is close at hand.
Lots of bars and restaurants within easy reach, if you like Chinese food as we do there are 2 good ones close by, we preferred one called WOK beautiful food at a very reasonable price.
When we go back to Benidorm again I hope this Bodega in a secured lock up compound with swimming pool is available for us to rent.
