Hiya

Not been to Don Pancho but I know that the Pelicanos in nice, rooms are nice and the food is good. It is also really central to night life, beach, market etc,

Hope this helps

I would check out the prices doing it yourself,

you can easyjet it from Liverpool

or jet2/monarch it from manchester

there summer fares come out very soon

try this link for sol pelicanos.....

www.solmelia.com/solNew/home/jsp/C_Home.jsp

and this link for Calypso.....

www.servigroup.es/ingles/hoteles_gnral.htm

I think you will save a lot of money...?

The Pelicanos is a family orientated hotel and the Calypso i think is more a adults hotel although there will be family's staying there but both hotels should meet your needs,

Hope this helps.

I did not like the room we had in the Ocas at Christmas. Overlooking an alleyway with winos etc. and facing the delivery entrance to the Indoor Market where lorries were reversing about 6 in the morning. The Pelicanos may be better but I understand it depends which Tour Operator you are with which of the hotels you are allocated.

Have you checked out Los Dalmatas? It is undergoing a refurbishment this winter and when we were there in April we found the staff, reception, cleaners and waiters to be be the most friendly efficient and helpful we have met. It is handy for the cabaret bars along Calle Gerona too.

Another favourite of ours is the Levante Club Hotel. Most luxurious we have stayeda in over 20 years of visiting Benidorm but a 15 - 20 minute walk to the beach

Helenc.

The trick with the pelicanos is to phone them a week before you go, and ask them what room you have been allocated, that will tell you what hotel they are putting you in, if its the ocas, tell them you want the pelicanos and they will change you, or if you don't mind the ocas tell them you want a pool view and they will do this. if they have not allocated a room yet tell them what you want.

oh, and by the way, the call is free, just go to there web site,

(the link is in my previous answer,) its a free phone number, just ask to be put thru to the pelicanos.

Job sorted.

i do it everytime i go there.

Lesmac,

Thanks for the tip. If we venture there again I will try it.

The Hotel is certainly in a great location.

Thanks.

I loved the Don Pancho when we stayed there a couple of years ago,and I haved stayed at the Pelicanos a couple of times.I've never been to the Calypso.Given the choice I would opt for the Don Pancho.
