Benidorm Old Town
Once upon a time, Benidorm was a sleepy fishing village. In the Old Town, you can get a taster of the way things were before the city got its skyline. Enjoy a moment’s peace in the Church of San Jaime and Santa Ana, then gasp at timeless vistas at Balcón del Mediterráneo viewpoint. To feast on tasty and traditional tapas, head to La Taperia.

Rincon de Loix
1.6 miles from downtown
A little piece of England on the Med. This residential district is a pretty network of quiet bungalows and glistening pools, where sun-seeking Brits have set up shop. Mingle with cheery ex-pats in the aptly named Home from Home, then cop a curry at the Curry Mile. If you don’t want to miss out on the footy back home, head to Stretford End.

Sun-soaked beaches, pulsating nightlife and plentiful theme parks are the hallmarks of Benidorm tourism. Its scenic location along Costa Blanca makes it a popular holiday destination in Spain.
Offering soft sands and clear waters, Benidorm's beaches are major tourist attractions. The arc-shaped Levante Beach is a picturesque sight, with its stretch of skyscrapers in the background and rows of blue parasols in the foreground. At Poniente Beach, you’ll find a quieter atmosphere and a contemporary promenade lined with restaurants, clubs and bars. Situated close to Levante Beach is the Cala Tío Ximo cove, which offers opportunities for snorkelling.
During your Benidorm holiday, you can spend an entire day at one of its many theme parks. Terra Mítica is renowned for its themed areas inspired by Rome, Greece, Egypt, Iberia and the Islands, where you’ll find exciting roller coasters and live performances. At Terra Natura Benidorm, you can take a trip across three continents to discover native wildlife, vegetation and culture. Located next door is the Aqua Natura water park that has attractions for both kids and adults. Aqualandia is another popular water park, with slides and rides in tropical settings.
Benidorm’s skyscrapers and beach promenades are home to several vibrant clubs and pubs. Most venues offer a varied experience – live bands, karaoke, drag shows and more. There are plenty of LGBTQ+-friendly nightclubs as well as laid-back watering holes across the city. You can experience Benidorm's famed nightlife at Poniente Beach, Calle Gerona, Old Town and Avenida Communitat Valencia.

Great stay. Two bedroom apartment air conditioning in one room and front room.no air conditioning in smaller room.asked reception for a fan and received one. Great pool/sunbathing areas for everyone. Beach within 10 minute walk.bars and restaurants even closer. Quiet area to stay. Had a great holiday. 3 euros pp for sun beds. The sun terrace bar/restaurant is a great place to enjoy food and drinks with music.
Old Benidorm was very nice, with loads of lovely bars and restaurants, nice friendly family vibe going on. Beach and beach front was awesome. When we wanted it a bit more lively it was about a 20 minute walk up to the new town which was also good, with great bars, plenty of artists playing live music. Way more busy, with lots of stag nights and groups of youngsters but everybody we saw was well behaved. Great place, caters for old ages and tastes, been a few times, will be back for sure!
Benidorm has something to offer everyone and is great for families. The beaches are golden and the sea is clean and warm to swim in. We have been there three times now and we will go back without a doubt. It’s cheap to buy things and the prices have remained the same as we went before COVID.
We booked a short stay at this hotel as we were staying in the south and wanted to see what Benidorm was like, we booked an extra night as well.we enjoyed the old town not far to walk Into from our hotel.
I have visited Benidorm many times I love it, I have normally stayed in a hotel but stayed in a flat on this occasion. The outside Market on Wednesday and Sundays is well worth visiting, and the indoor market opposite the Neareo is very good as well, with a good cafe on one of the corners with English-speaking staff and English tea and cakes sandwiches etc. If you have mobility problems, there are plenty of places to hire scooters. The front is very long from one end to the other. I have always found November and through to March to be comfortable; unless you like the sun, it's the best time with an average daytime temperature of around 70c to 80C. It is definitely worth a trip to Guadaless in the mountains while you are there.
Great beach , avoid end of July and august as Spanish holidays also , eat mostly at English establishments ie: sherry’s bar , Nepali tandoori and China garden best places to eat.terra mitica theme park very impressive and great however avoid AQUALANDIA- fun but overcrowded and they charge for EVeryTHInG ! Sunloungers, inflatable hire, lockers. Also dangerous water slides -beware, so choose wisely, long queues in full sun as no shade, you will burn ! Avoid tapas alley they choose to keep you waiting but serve Spanish straight away - just walk away if kept waiting long
