“Sol Pelicanos”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

Nice clean hotel, very friendly staff - unfortunately had hardly any sleep as walls were thin and big groups of people making noise at silly o clock. Was all inclusive but ate out for evening meals 3 times - pig trotters, tripe, sprouts, and chips for every meal, desserts were samey every day so became boring. Pool Area very clean. There is a kids club that is great and the entertainment staff are brilliant, but think its a shame that the hotel caters for kids and big male/female groups, i think it needs to cater for one or the other as it is unfair for kids and also the elderly couples that go for a peaceful holiday. Definately would not go again waste of money and a weeks holiday.

Room Tip: Ask the hotel if they can put you where it would be relatively quiet and you are not by groups of pe...

Don't be fooled by this hotel it is nothing like what u see on ITVs Benidorm tv series, they only use the pool area and film the inside somewhere else. The only good thing about this hotel was the big pool but if your staying All Inclusive you can only get drinks from the bar near the little pool, otherwise its a fair walk carring drinks from the bar to the bigger pool.
The food was terrible, it was tasteless, We only stayed for 4 nights and it seemed to be the same stuff on everynight, spag bol, pasta, stews.. they did have fresh fruit and salad which i lived off whilst we was there.
We also got our bag stolen outside the hotel by some local gypsies, the hotel staff were useless, they didn't care one bit, Had my 7 year old son with me and he was deverstated as we had no way off getting any money as all my bank cards were stolen. The hotel wouldn't even upgrade us to all inclusive but luckly my friend who met us there paid on her credit card to upgrade us to all inclusive, otherwise god knows what we would of done!! During our 4 night stay 7 other people got pick pocketed and the hotel staff really did not do anything to help any of us.
The rooms were basic, would only recommend you came here if u want a cheap room for a few days and your only planning on sleeping there, ie stag hen nights. Not family holidays. If you do decide to stay here be cautious outside the hotel entrance as these people steal everyday and you don't even notice them doing it at the time.

just returned from a 4 night break at the sol pelicanos, it was lovely. The location is superb, the swimming pool area is amazing (water too cold at this time of year though) and the buffet breakfast was ample. (we went b&b) visited levi's show boat which is near the levante club hotel on main road and that was just fantastic, what a great night out, The yorkshire pride cafe/bar is fantastic, meals are ginormous! tapas alley in the old town is a must, get out there. Scruffy murphy's irish bar is a good night out, as is the rock n roll house. definately going back again to the sol pelicanos. JUST A WORD OF WARNING - If you are approached by two women asking questions about your hotel just walk away.These work for a company called phoenix travel and its a con. Dont be fooled by them

Room Tip: we stayed on 12th floor over looking pool area, nice view of pool.

Stayed 31st - 6th April, Travelled as a family of 4. Hotel is in a good location, only 5 mins from the bars but far enough away not to hear the noise. Close to the beach. My only critisism is the noise from the other rooms you can hear "everything " which gets a bit tiring.Rooms are basic but very clean, no hairdryer or mini fridge. Safe for us was 10 euros for the duration. Pool area was fantastic but the pool is freezing cold, none are heated.Food was ok. Would return but not for more than 1 week

Room Tip: ask for the lagoon side rooms, rate to upgrade was advertised at 6 euros per night at the hotel or y...

One of the nicest hotels we have stayed in. Brilliant service and helpful staff who were very cheerful always. The meals were very good value for money as was the visit in general. Only a few knockbacks, the pool was too cold to go in but it would be suitable in the warmer summer months. Also, the 14th floor was quite noisy as we assume that's where they put the larger groups of people. Finally, we felt as though we were the youngest couple there without adults but that could be because we went during term time! Its walking distance to the bars, shops, beach and market. Would definatley visit again!

disappointed by the sol pelicanos, entertainment was shocking, the people work so hard but a hotel like this should be getting acts in not using the day team to mime songs and do naff shows, really didnt enjoy a single evenings entertainment. as we were all inclusive i was reluctant to go out and pay for drinks, we also have a 5 yr old so we didnt want to go out and about we wanted to enjoy the nights in the hotel but there is no way that entertainment was at all enjoyable. this spoilt the holiday 4 me. we were all inclusive but i didnt enjoy the food, i wouldnt go all incluisve to benidorm again, the food is cheap and enjoyed our meals out far far more than what we ate at the hotel. rooms basic but do the job, was happy with room. the hotel itself is nice to look at but drains were a problem in the bar, really offputting, im not being picky, this was a real problem. pool area lovely but didnt get chance to enjoy pools as too cold. rarely seen anyone in any of the pools but probs to be expected this time of the year. the difficulty with the pool area is getting the sun, the main area is surrounded by big tall building and palm trees so sun is very limited. personally i wouldnt stay here again, last yr we stayed at ambassador just along the road and we enjoyed this far more. the kids club was also poor, we always go to hotels with kids clubs but my son only went a cpl of time he didnt enjoy the activites which mainly consisted of sitting and drawing. staff were all lovely though. was on the whole surprised by benidorm this year, full of stag and hen parties rather than families and big groups, its never used to be that way, its more like malia or magaluf now, ive been many times before and enjoyed it but dont think id go back again as a family, would def go with the lasses though x
