The resort of Benidorm is the largest on the Spanish Costa Blanca and is well known for its beaches and huge number of hotels. The large number of hotels means that there is a real variety of accommodation, ranging from five-star luxury spa hotels through to very basic hostels.
Whatever your choice of accommodation it will provide you with the perfect base to visit some of the many attractions this resort and the surrounding area have to offer, including historic sites of interest, stunning inland landscapes and waterfalls as well as theme parks and water parks.
The resort and the local area have many things to see and do, particularly if you are travelling as a family with children. There is the Terra Mitica theme park, one of the largest in Europe, as well as the Aqualandia water park and the Mundo Mar sea-life centre, which are all just outside the resort centre and are well worth a visit. The resort is home to a large number of shops which are perfect for picking up those holiday souvenirs, as well as many restaurants, bars, casinos and nightclubs, meaning that this really is the type of resort that caters for everyone.
Despite everything else that Benidorm has to offer, there is no doubt that the biggest attraction for most people are the Blue Flag sandy beaches such as Levante and Poniente, which are perfect for families and offer water sports and other activities that children will love. Your hotel's proximity to the beach is bound to be a priority and there are many within a short distance of the beach. However, it is always worth checking when you book just how close to the beach you actually are.
Some of the hotel accommodation is situated on the promenade with views of the famous Calpe rock and most is either three- or four-star rated whether it is self-catering accommodation or a traditional hotel. The resort also offers many hotels with all-inclusive deals and most hotels have their own facilities such as swimming pools, regardless of their proximity to the beach.
The sheer size of this resort means that you will find all the large Spanish hotel groups. H10, Nunez, Riu Hoteles, Hesperia, Sirenis, Barcelo, Viva, Tyrp, Melia, NH Hoteles, Sol, AC Hoteles and Abba Hoteles all have Benidorm hotels. In addition, there are also many hotels that operate exclusively for package tour operators.
Your visit may coincide with one of Benidorm's fiesta weeks, when traditional Spanish festivals are held to coincide with religious dates. During these times hotels may be full so it is a good idea to plan and book ahead.
