Sol Pelicanos Ocas by Melia
Ranked #35 of 191 Hotels in Benidorm
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 May 2012

Had a brilliant time at the Sol Pelicanos. I picked this hotel because I had stayed there around 15 years ago and I had fond memeories. When I first arrived I was disappointed as externally the hotel did not look as good as I remembered also the bedrooms were smaller and more basic. On the plus side the hotel was spotlessly clean well maintained and the pool area was much improved, i.e. there are now several pools and a number of jacuzzis plus loads of sunbeds, Because it was so large and split into several areas it never felt crowded and there was always a quiet spot if that was what you wanted.
Our toddler had a great time. She enjoyed the childrens discos every night, the meet and greet sessions with the Flintstone characters and Flintstone land where there were swings, slides etc. Best of all she had unlimited private use of one of the many toddler paddling pools.
The thing we enjoyed was the food. We stayed on a half board basis and found the range and quality of the food to be outstanding. In fact I will go so far as to say I have never ate as well in a Spanish hotel !
It is definately worth paying a little extra for halfboard.
The only criticism I would make was the bar prices were rather high and put us off driniking in the hotel.

Chose this hotel specifically because it is the one featured in the Benidorm sitcom. There were four of us women on my hen party and we had a fab time. We had room overlooking the pool. Pool large and clean (although water too cold 23-25 March 2012 when we visited) but the sun was shining! Hotel staff very helpful. Reception staff very accommodating and assisted us in pointing us in right direction and booking the Benidorm Palace for our outingsand hotel ideally located for everything you need to do in Benidorm and just a few minutes walk from the beach. Room clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast was buffet style but something for everyone and lots of it. We ate at the pool cafe and food good and reasonably priced. We drank in the hotel bar and prices were very reasonable also and bar staff very friendly. No waiting. Would definitely recommend and would go back again.

Great hotel, it is only 3 star so dont expect luxury. The rooms is basic but very clean and comfortable. The swimming pool is brilliant, the best i have seen ii any hotel in Benidorm.
We went half board and the food was very good, there was great choice for everybody.
Thw kids flinestones play area is great.
Would defo stay here again for the pool area alone.
The location is great aswell its about 2mins walk from all the main bars so you dont get the noise but still close to the nightlife.

Room Tip: Pool view high floor

I recently stayed on a 4 night B&B break with my husband at the end of April. The rooms are basic but very clean and everything you would need for a short break away. Yes it can get noisier over the weekend period with hens & stags but you are in Benidorm if anything I was kept awake one night not by drunks but a baby crying all night and again early in the morning. The breakfast was lovely and had everything you could possibly want from hot bacon, sausages, eggs to fresh fruit and yoghurt..loved it, The best part of this hotel is the pool area, thereare always sunbeds available throughout the day and it is kept spotlessly clean by the staff. Well worth it just for the outside pool area even though the waters cold at this time of year get yourself in or just sit in the jacuzzi areas. I would definitely go back with the family just for the outside pool area.

Room Tip: Stayed on 14th floor really quiet no noise from above.

Just returned from a weeks stay. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff very friendly and efficient. Good choice of food at all meals. Although there were a lot of stag and hen parties, they were good entertainment rather than a problem. Will certainly stay there again
