Crowds at TikiLike a game of ping ping, the on-going Tiki Beach saga continues! Residents of the Santa Margarita building, directly above the bar have been trying to have the bar closed down for what seems like years. Last June they won the case, on grounds of excessive noise at the Benidorm court but an appeal was quickly submitted to the Provincial Court in Alicante against that ruling. The verdict is back – Alicante have upheld the verdict.

They claimed that the wooden bar, which stands on the terrace had no planning permission and then a case of false witness with the previous administration, which led to the breakdown of the joint pact between the Socialist and the Liberals.

Benisuisse SL, the company responsible for Tiki Beach submitted evidence to prove that the noise levels did not exceed the legal noise limits, which were taken by the police, saying that outside factors such as car noise and ocean waves contribute to the overall levels.

So what next… the neighbours of the building are obviously smug that they have won, but I am sure another appeal will be submitted – either to Valencia or Madrid before we see the closure of Tiki Beach. It would potentially seriously damage the pulling power of Benidorm – and where would it stop. Benidorm is reliant on those that come to party and drink here, for without them Benidorm would struggle to survive. Yes perhaps some go the excess, but then no different to any other resort or British town centre at the weekend. Tiki Beach is predominantly a daytime bar anyway and I am sure that others along the front such as Hearbreak, Caymen and the Guinness Bar will be watching with interest.

I stay at the santa margarita twice a year I am only on the 2nd floor so I know exactly what the noise is like. And it doesn't bother me,family and friends one bit.the music's always good, and I don't find it intrusive at all. Long may the Tiki remain..and I'm no spring chicken 65 and still partying
