I met up and had a coffee at the Hotel Presidente with the lovely Crissy Rock yesterday afternoon, her home when she is here in Benidorm. Unfortunately, she is jetting back on a Jet2 flight to Liverpool today, using her entire 22kg luggage allowance she showed me, having had a fruitful shopping spree that morning. But she´ll be back here in November, in time for the Benidorm fiestas and looking forward to the British Fancy Dress day she told me – but hasn´t quite decided on her outfit for this year yet.

Star activeStar activeStar activeStar activeStar active

A fantastic place to visit if you are staying in Benidorm are the Algar waterfalls, which can be found on the outskirts of the village of Callosa d'En Sarria, aprox 15km outside of Benidorm. It is a real natural beautyspot and attracts thousands of visitors over the Summer months - both holiday makers and residents. In Series 3 - episode 2 of the ITV hit show Benidorm, the Garvey clan went on a "free trip" which had the Algar Waterfalls as the destinations.

How well do you know Benidorm?

Benidorm - a bit like marmite, you either love it or hate it. However the majority of Brits who actually come on holiday to Benidorm get the bug and continue to come back year after year. There is so much to see and do around the resort that it´s hardly surprising. Alicante airport is served by a wide choice of airlines and with an average flight time of 2.5 hours from the UK, understandable why it is a firm favourite with so many. Benidorm´s success is based on two main attractions – long stretches of golden sandy beaches and a microclimate that guarantees almost year round sunshine.

The chorus of ladies singing Viva España in the departure lounge bar gave me a fairly good indication that the group were heading to Spain - and I was not wrong as they boarded my Ryanair flight from East Midlands to El Altet Alicante! Indeed, Nicola and her entourage of 15 ladies were heading to Benidorm for 3 nights of partying - as their specially printed t-shirts confirmed to everyone. It was Nicola´s 40th and the girls were certainly going to make the most of it - starting at the airport. As the plane taxied down the runway they broke into "We're leaving on a jet plane" and cheers as the wheels left the tarmac!

For a change it was not Benidorm getting a slating in the British press this week – instead the shame fell to Magaluf, on the Spanish holiday resort of Majorca. A shocking video went viral on the social media network of a young British girl, who was on an organized bar crawl, performing a sex act on a line of men to win a free drink! The Mayor and local politicians were outraged at the damage it has done to the image of the resort and are mounting a PR campaign to attempt to restore the image and persuade holidaymakers to return.

Benidorm is renowned for its selection and variation of entertainment on offer – with particular focus on the fantastic tribute acts. The resort offers something for everyone – but a firm favourite, especially with the girls is the Olly Murs show. Only going since March 2013, the talent behind the sensational voice, which ensures a packed room, is Troy Fallaize – although the fact that he is rather gorgeous to look at may also have something to do with it!

Night Market in Benidorm Old Town

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star activeStar activeStar activeStar activeStar active

If you are stuck for something to do on a warm and balmy evening why not head up to the Old Town. Benidorm has in some people´s minds acquired a reputation of solely being a stag and hen destination for those wanting nothing more than sun and cheap booze. Up to a point that is the case, particularly in the Rincon de Loix area, but if you head up to the Old Town you will think you are in a completely different part of Spain.
