The hotel was cleaned every day and it was very clean. The room was a family room overlooking the indoor market , and was comfortable , all the beds were a good size. The fridge and TV were all good quality. Thre children loved the pool and staying up late to watch the entertainment which was a little poor but we didnt go for the entertainment so it was to no affect on the holiday. The bar was expensive as we were not all inclusive. We booked bed and breakfast and the selection and quantity of food on offer at breakfast was fantastic, and freshly cooked. You could even have a bucks fizz if you wanted.
The only issue we had was the hotel was so busy it sometimes felt a little over crowded and on the first night at 5 am there was a fight outside our room. Recepotion suggested we ring security if it happened again. The walls in the room are very thin so we heard a lot of noise from next door including the fight!
However it was a good family holiday and a clean and welcoming hotel!

Room Tip: if you want a room with a balcony make sure you ask , we didnt specify and had a room over looking t...

We booked 8 nights all inclusive here some months ago as we had a BA companion voucher which we had to 'use or lose' so we didn't read any reviews beforehand. I have to say im glad we didn't because the hotel is fine. Arrived Tues at noon after our business class BA flight from Gatwick, the car from the airport was punctual and got us here in around 45 minutes, check in was fast and polite and although we were early our room was ready. Being a family of 4 we are in the ocas side which means a newly refurbished room! RESULT! A lot of people have complained about the quality and quantity of the food but I have to say that I can't share that opinon, there is so much to choose from and its always hot and tasty. The service at the bars can be a bit slow but give the staff a friendly smile, use their names and say please and thank you and you get served first! They are still filming the new series of Benidorm so one end of the pool is off limits but its not too much of a problem and some cast members are visible. You have the usual issue of people reserving sunbeds and not using them but that happens everywhere and the management should really get to grips with it but never do. WARNING don't change any money in the DOMO X money exchange out the front of the hotel opposite Neptune's bar as they offer a rate on the board and make you sign a little form then they short change you and point out the small print that says that rate is only available if you change a minimum of £2000! The rate below that amount is only 1€ to £1 which is a total rip off! The whole hotel is spotlessly clean and there are always maintenance, cleaning and gardening staff doing something. The location is brilliant, only a few minutes from the beach and the brit strip. The old town is about a 20 minutes walk away. We leave tomorrow (June 4th) and dont really want to go, we will definitely book the pelicanos ocas again if we return to Benidorm.

Room Tip: Ask for ocas as the rooms are newly refurbished

Stayed with my wife and two daughters (5 & 14) for twelve days and can honestly say we had a really nice holiday. On arrival we were quickly checked in to one of the family rooms in the ocas hotel and was not disappointed, room was more like a 4star, very spacious, very clean, comfy beds, plasma tv on wall (that had loads of English channels) and also a lovely bathroom with huge walk in shower which the hard working maids cleaned daily. Rooms also have fridges and safes in which you can use at a small extra cost. Pools were best in benidorm (think that's why they film here) could not get kids out off them, as for the entertainment we could not ask for more, the team work tirelessly to make sure you all really enjoy your holiday from the kids club, pool games, cabaret shows (especially Mama Mia and Greece) and all the other activities they put on. Food was nice and there was always something new on the menu from day to day. Location is great for beach (5mins) and the famous clubs/pubs of benidorm which always have something on for everyone/every hour!!! Would definitely recommend to all especially family's and we will be returning next year.
