6 reasons to stay at the Sol Pelicanos Ocas hotel in Benidorm

In the spirit of sponsoring ITV’s hit TV show, Benidorm, we’ve been in touch with our friends over at the real-life Solana hotel – that’s the Sol Pelicanos Ocas hotel – to ask for their top reasons to stay on your next summer holiday…

It has one of the biggest and most gorgeous lagoon pools in Europe

Sol Pelicanos Ocas’ iconic lagoon pool is a thing of beauty. Perfect for a day of sunbathing during the day, the pool is also a scenic spot, romantically lit in the evening. What a perfect place for cocktails at sunset. Utter bliss.

The hotel entertainment team are tip top

Not only do they keep your kids smiling with all sorts of entertainment and activities, the team are also devoted to keeping mum and dad happy. In fact, this extends to all of the staff at the hotel; their main goal is to help guests have unforgettable holiday memories. We asked the guys over there, and they responded with “we love our job – especially seeing the happy faces of our guests when they return home after their stay” – see; the proof’s in the pudding.

Speaking of which, there’s plenty up for grabs at either of the two buffet-style eateries at the hotel: Pelicanos restaurant and Ocas restaurant. Expect your everyday staples alongside fresh salads, fish, pizzas, pasta dishes and everything else your stomach could ever desire. If you were to get a little peckish outside of meal times there are plenty of bars by the pool so you can grab some snacks and a refreshing pint or two.

You can pretend you’re in the TV show “Benidorm” at the Swim Up Bar 

And let’s be honest, that’s a big reason you’re going, right? The Sol Pelicanos Ocas has another iconic spot: the swim-up bar in the lagoon pool. Y’know, the place where you can literally swim up to the bar, sit on a stool and order yourself a bevvy whilst watching the drama unfold? Okay, so there may not actually be such drama in real life. But you know what I mean.

The beach, nightlife, old town and food are all within an arm’s reach

You’re located in the heart of the action and the belly of the beach, which is only a 5 minute walk away from the hotel. The strip is even closer – only 2 minutes away – meaning you can change your mind and go for that night out at the drop of a hat. For a change of tempo, you can get yourself a bit of culture over in the old town which is about 20 minutes from Sol Pelicanos Ocas.
