Re-Invention is the key to success and the Marconfort hotel group have certainly achieved that with their latest project. What was previously known as the “Flamingo Playa Benidorm” has just undergone a major year long refurbishment and is now known as Marconfort Essence.

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

If you are looking for somewhere else to visit and done Altea already, head out in the opposite direction and try Vila Joyosa. Resembling a Dulux colour chart, you will probably find every colour except white – the total opposite of Altea Old Town. It´s a visual delight and will have you reaching for your camera.

Benidorm Fallas go up in smoke

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

Despite the rather adverse weather conditions, last nights burning of the fallas still took place in Benidorm. However, it wasn´t until the very last few minutes that the “bomberos” gave the thumbs up. Strong winds throughout the day bought uncertainty as to whether it would be too dangerous to go ahead – but thankfully all 3 went up in smoke at the allotted times.

Fire in Benidorm tonight - "Fallas time"

User Rating: 0 / 5

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

If you had an aerial view over the Valencian community at midnight tonight you´d think that there was some kind of forest fire. But no, the beautiful fallas go up in smoke tonight. It must seem bizarre to the Brits to watch these beautifully crafted models, which cost thousands of euros to construct and decorate being burnt.

“Top of the Day” as the Irish would say – and it certainly was in Benidorm today. The sun shone, the music played and the drink flowed as parts of the Rincon de Loix turned into a mini Ireland to celebrate the Patron Saint of Ireland – St Patrick.

"Benidorm Tom"

User Rating: 4 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Inactive

There´s a new kid on the block as far as entertainers in Benidorm are concerned and boy, or should I say boyo, is he good. There´s no guessing from that one word what nationality he is – Welsh and the most iconic voice to come from the hills is Sir Tom Jones. Andy Wood not only sounds like the megastar but even resembles him – you will definitely do a double take when you spot him on stage.

Gas and water going down in Benidorm

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

Despite Spain being advanced in some aspects it is bizarre that many properties are still reliant on bottled gas to cook and heat their homes with. In the UK bottled gas is probably only used for BBQ´s in the Summer months, yet it is common to see people here pulling a trolley with a gas canister attached.

Once the sun goes down, the bright lights come on and Benidorm is transformed into a party capital – the centre of which is found on Calle Gerona. The resort is a magnet for those wanting a good time without having to take out a mortgage sized loan in order to achieve it!
