we love benedorm
When we arrived at the Pelecanas/ Ocas Hotel we were told that we had'nt been allowcated a room , luckely we got one on the 10th floor. Very nice hotel and the food was good with plenty of choice. This Hotel is very central and got noisy at night with alot of late night revellers. The holiday was regretfully soon over. The flights and transfers were good and without incident. Overall really good holiday.

Not What I was expecting & reluctant to book with Thomas cook again
Lovely hotel, room basic but clean. Excellent pool ( the best I have ever stayed at) Food was average not bad but not good. Drinks were stupidly overpriced 3.50 euro per 400ml glass of lager & 2.05 euro for a small glass of coke. Given these silly prices we did not stay in the hotel for entertainment so cannot comment on entertainment. We also were not happy to find out until our last day the kids club was actually open. There was evidence it was as it looked locked up. Also I expect my holiday rep to make me aware of what the hotel has to offer but no it was more about the resort/trips. To be honest the best service I got on this holiday was from a rival as our flights were transferred to Thomson and the service we received from check in to landing even trying to find the thomas cook rep at the airport was a nightmare and the thomson rep had to show us where the thomas cook rep was as Alicante airport is now on two levels. On a positive note the same holiday would have cost me £200 more if I had booked with Thomson. But in future I may just pay the extra £200 to get a better service

good hotel for famlies and couples of all ages
the only thing is your planes the seat in front of you is too close could hardly get the table down for something to eat it made me feel claustrophobic and my husband too he is over six foot i am not but on the whole apart from the plane our holiday was superb but could improve the room in your planes.

Scary eye opening stay
Thiefs everywhere. Had mobile stolen from hotel room hookers on hotel doorsteps. Reaonable poilce presence must be hugely overworked. Wouldnt go back if it was paid for. Transfers all good

First & Last Visit
The Sol Pelicanos hotel is no higher than a 3 star, great pools, excellent food, friendly staff, very dated rooms and useless TV, although the bed was comfortable and room cleaned ok.
Benidorm is called Blackpool with sun, in fact it's worse than Blackpool, lots of scammers trying to rob you, noisy pubs and crowded pavements with broken slabs and dirt.
There are many electrical shops that also run a scam, google 'Benidrom Camera Scan' and read it before you go.
The place is full of wannabe singers, impersonating the stars, mostly rubbish but a few good one's, it's hit and miss.
Afraid I would not return, although if the hotel was somewhere else I would probably be happy to use it again simply because I really enjoyed the food.
