From what a lot of people have said on here, the swim up bar never seems to have been open since they started using the pool for Benidorm scenes!

There's also been complaints that they cordon off the big pool when filming and those holidaying there haven't been able to use it!

And I wonder how many of those complaints are made by people who are only staying there at that time because they're filming?

Your right Frank I think a lot of people stay there thinking the inside of the hotel is where the filming is done. That's why some think they will have larger apartment style rooms, not just the standard hotel bedroom layout. They must be disappointed when they arrive to find the back area of the pool closed and also discover some filming is done in a studio and in other various buildings.

oh,know! I don't need putting right on that! I only wanted too have a drink at the pool bar,as I said previously

before Benidorm (Show) arrived I popped in and had a drink there many years ago!. ps, to be truthfull the only reason I want too do that is because of the show...

Stayed in May when they were filming, yes they shut part of the pool off while filming.iAlso stayed in August & the swim up bar was open. Shuts a bit earlier than the other bar by the pool. Also all pay at the swim up bar.

I've stayed at the Pelicanos on 3 or 4 occasions and used the pool a few times when I haven't been staying there.

I've seen them filming 3 consecutive years so obviously the pool bar wasn't open to guests.

The only time it was actually open when I was there was in June 2007. I remember treating myself to a nice cocktail, it was a lovely experience swimming up to the bar and sitting on a stool partly submerged in the water.

I've never seen it open since then though.
