Poseidon Palace Hotel (now part of Poseidon Resort)

Hello

Which UK based tour operators offer packages to the Poseidon Palace Hotel? Thomson used to, but not any more. My mum and dad have gone there for years but are having trouble finding a package for this November's fiesta. As they have mobility issues, they really want to book a package (rather than separate travel elements) so that they have one company to deal with. (N.B. They are not interested in the Poseidon Playa).

Failing that, can anyone suggest an alternative hotel in the immediate vicinity? The location of the Poseidon Palace is spot on for them as it is close to everything they like in Benidorm including the promenade and the old town.

Jet2 Holidays have them listed. Flights from Manchester too!

I thought you had to book each element separately with Travel Republic so it's not really a package?

Thank you very much. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be available for fiesta time via Jet2. Can anyone suggest any other tour operators or hotels in the vicinity? Mum and dad are in their late 70s and have mobility issues.

Look at the Victoria or Royal, both just down the street.

ManchesterJapanGirl, if you book a flight and accommodation at the same time with Travel Republic it's considered a package holiday and an ATOL certificate will be issued.

Shezza, sorry to be picky but it is important to point out that Travel Republic do not sell package holidays. Whilst you're correct in saying booking two elements together offers a Flight Plus deal and an ATOL certificate, it is not classed as a Package Holiday under the terms of the Package Travel Regulations. TR and many other online booking agents make it quite clear that they don't sell Package Holidays.

I'd have posted earlier but it's taken TA a week to sort out my log in reset! Very frustrating! :-(
