Sun advice when in Benidorm

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

With the full force of the Spanish sun it is important to take some precautions in order to cope with the hot weather.Stay indoors or in the shade during the hottest part of the day ... as the song goes "Only mad-dogs and English men go out in the midday sun" ... which is apparent if you pass by Levante Beach at 1pm. All the locals and Spanish go in for a prolonged lunch and siesta and not resurface until after 4pm.

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

After a complete renovation, the "Riviera Beach Hotel" has just re-opened its door to customers as an adult only hotel - no under 16's. What a brilliant idea ...It is located in the heart of the Benidorm entertainment district on the Avd. Derramador ( the road leading from the Sunday market to the Indoor market). The Sol Pelicanos and Morgan's Tavern, aka Neptunes Bar, both featured in the ITV hit series "Benidorm" are both within 100 metres.

Benidorm Theme Parks the cheaper way!

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

One of the great things about Benidorm is that there is so much to do once here. The beautiful sandy beaches are the first stop and probably the reason why most visitors come here - but Benidorm is also home to 3 theme parks: Terra Mitica, Aqualandia and Terra Natura/Aqua Natura. All are easily accessed whether you have a car or not and serviced by a regular bus service from the centre of town.

Sunday openings in Benidorm

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Spain, unlike the UK is somewhat in the dark ages when it comes to round the clock shopping - 24hr supermarket opening has not hit this country yet. Infact it has only been since the beginning of the month that Sunday openings have started due to the influx of holiday visitors to our shores. Carrefour is now open until midnight 7 days a week and the shopping complex opposite "Marina Centre" has also opened its doors to Sunday trading.

Quieter Benidorm beaches

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Benidorm is renowned for its beautiful sandy beaches and the reason most visitors come to holiday here . Levante, probably the most popular and well known is busy and  full of life with bars and restaurants lining the promenade thumping out music,but if you want a more sedate one then take a trip to either Poniente or La Cala. These are the ones favoured by both the locals and Spanish as they are quieter and more family orientated.

Eyesore removed in Benidorm.

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

The eyesore that stood for many years on the crossroads of Avd. Mediteraneo and Avd. Europa is at long last being demolished. The derelict buildings had been boarded up for at least the last10 years and the Town Hall has been insistent that they are demolished as they were both a danger and unsightly. At one point they said if the landlord did not start then the authorities would take over and bill him for the costs.

Car hire "petrol policy"

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

You've booked the "cheap" flight for your well deserved break to Benidorm now for the hire car...... don't get caught out with the online quoted price! This is very rarely the final amount you pay, which you will discover upon collection at the airport. My main gripe is the petrol sting. You collect the car, with a tank full of petrol but the companies vary on how you return it back.

Building in the Old Town- Benidorm

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

The Old Town is located between the Levante and Poniente beaches and a far cry from the "British Square" and what people associate when they hear the word "Benidorm". Its not all "2 for 1 Happy Hour" and "All Day Breakfast" - although if that's what you want there is plenty to be had.The Old Town is like a step back in time - full of narrow cobbled streets adorned with white-washed houses and an abundance of tapas bars, boutiques and restaurants.
