“Loved it!!!”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

My friend and I went there just for the beach. We are not party animals but just two quite girls looking for a break from all the hustle and bustle in the city. We got what we wanted!
On top of the white sand and green sea, the markets there really surprised us. We loved the frozen yogurt and the fresh salad. oh, and the amazing Mojito that made us laughing out loud all night on the street. :D
It is affordable and full of friendly people. I'd say definitely worth going.

“Loved Benidorm”
Reviewed 28 June 2013

My friend and I went to Benidorm early this month and we had a fantastic time..the flight was 2 hrs 25min which is great and since it was our first time there we weren't sure what we were in for...really lovely beach front at Levante, with water skiing and the usual banana boat rides etc..the marina is also lovely at the old town end. We used RoundTown tourist advisers to help us out with our trips out and they were really lovely and helpful as they have been in Benidorm since the 80's so they have great local knowledge. Took a trip to Aqualandia which was fun and was absolutely worn out by the end of the day! The nightlife is fantastic but we were warned to stay away from the square...which we did and had no problems. Favourite place would have to be The Red Lion pub which has a great atmosphere, good shows and the famous Sticky Vicky..
Overall a really good, relaxing cheap break :-)

“La Cala, Finestrat, Nr Benidorm”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

This beach is a really lovely place to be. Just outside Benidorm, a 35 minute bus ride from the centre, a clean, safe, and family place to be. We stayed in an apartment here and it was lovely with a market twice a week and restaurants all round the beach and up the road. A large supermarket is opposite the beach and Resorthoppa stops just outside the supermarket. We visited at the end of May and the temperature was 26 degrees most days and only busy on Fri, Sat and Sunday. A lovely play area under a canopy so the children are shaded and other play areas slightly inland. Would certainly recommend a quiet, family holiday within easy reach of the hustle and bustle of Benidorm.

This bar in Benidorm square is full of thieves, everybody warned us but I still managed to get my phone stolen, and caught on camera too. My friend took a photo of me and the next morning we noticed the thief actually has his hand in my bag taking my phone and we're all completely unaware. He had a girl assisting him, pretending to dance together but whilst he has his arms around her back his hands are in peoples bags, she carries a jacket over her arm to try hide his hand in the bags. They're so quick and good at it they're professionals they do this for a living so be careful!!!!!!!!!! Have noticed majority of comments are about the amount of robberies going on in the area

“Just like on the telly!”
Reviewed 14 May 2013

Full of old people, mobility scooters and English people! However, that put aside, what a great place even if you are not there for a stag/hen weekend or a booze bender. You can steer clear of this and have a really good time. Beautifully clean promenade with artists creating wonder scenes out of sand along Levante beach. Huge choice of entertainment which is all free! Drinks are mega cheap too. We stayed at the Don Pancho which was close to the main entertainment square and market. The hotel was clean and the food very good. However the pool area was poor. Been there 3 times now and going back again this October for 4 days. Weather good all year more or less and a really short flight which is all in its favour. Where it beats other places is the entertainment. Most hotels have in house animation teams which on the main are poor and boring. Here, you have everything from dancing to live music, tribute acts, comedy, and of course the famous Sticky Vicky which I have to say was an experience!
