    I've just got back from here and the food was brutal the chips had no potato in and tasted like they had been fried and then re fried and then re fried again, half the time the chicken was a dodgy colour, the pizza had barely any tomato puree on it and was mainly bread with a thin layer of cheese, they literally served pigs trotter as an option all inclusive and stayed in for tea twice out of 14 days! Getting your sunbeds on a morning is shocking, you need to queue up over an hour before the gates even open, so many rude staff (apart from cleaners and lady by the restaurant) no floats allowed in the pool, good luck if your key card stops working for the 16th time you have to wait in a queue at reception that's a mile long, we once waited 45 mins in the queue for them to re activate the key card which took them a matter of 10 seconds. And breakfast in the restaurant on a morning is shocking, kids running all over nearly knocking food off your plate, I actually witnessed a small kid riding about on a scooter in the restaurant the parents didn't care, neither did the staff. The coffee and juice machines constantly stop working or run out because there's that many people using them, I could go on forever. For such a popular hotel (and it's located in a really good spot) they need to seriously think about changing things, there is so many rules. If you want to smoke or vape you've got a little square towards ocas building that allows 4 people in at a time it's ridiculous!

    Staying in sol pelicanos at mo would not recommend was here 5 years ago and was ok but has gone down hill rapidly would not stay here again.

    I tool my 16 Yr old daughter last month as she's a huge fan, and we loved it, we didn't mind the food at all, we're not fussy eaters, but if you specifically want English food it may be a struggle. We only ate out one night.
    The pool is big and it's so close to everything.

    Tracey Forrester
    I've stayed here about 6 times, the last time being in May this year. The only thing I thought had gone downhill was the evening entertainment and the food was actually better than previous years

    Keith Ted Phillips
    Stayed in May and June
    Self catering so can’t comment on the food but the hotel and pool great so I’m back in September

    Debbie Shingler.stott
    I absolutely love it there. Never had any problems. back there next may 2023.. food was fabulous and staff so helpful and cheerful. Can't please everyone can you.. you are in Spain not UK if anyone don't like it why book abroad have staycation instead just saying.

    Used to be one of the best hotels in Benidorm, stayed last year , wouldn’t stay again , food used to be brilliant , this time it was all cold , very strict around the pool, kids cant enjoy themselves
  • Couldn't fault the food

    ,

    Went in may , was fine and couldn’t fault the food , so much choice , not sure what people expect really , only thing I would say is make sure you get up early for a sunbed

    Ian Leith 27th July
    Pool areas tremendous - food disgusting tbh - was all inclusive - lasted two meals - horrendous - booked a superior room with a mini bar - that was three cans of juice and a bottle of water - never again - been there before and has seriously went down hill rapidly

    Angela Crispin-Smith 27th July
    Was there in June for 10 nights. Only thing is food, nothing matches, ie Brussels with chips. Brekkie not to bad though. The snack bar is best if your AI. Have a lovely holiday. You make it what it is.

    Wendy Shaw 27th July
    Lovely staff nice food but rooms deffo need a facelift. Just came back

    Joan Burrell 27th July
    Bad reports of this hotel. Friends stayed there an wouldn't go bak. Only thing that was OK was pool. But everyone's opinions differ

    Jillian McGill 27th July
    Just back food not great furniture in rooms falling apart. No smoking round pool or outside bar area. Don't think I'd go back

    Tiff Godbeer 27th July
    Come back Sunday I thought it was brilliant. Food was really good the rooms were clean and tidy staff were lovely. Pool amazing. Just be careful as very slippery. Seen a dozen people slip over so wear your sandals all the time

    Eilish Morgan 27th July

    Claire Susan 19th July
    Here now and I don't know what people are complaining about. Food, (AI) drinks, Room (inc great air con) and Pool all fantastic. Great location. Not found much not to like. Daytime entertainment is fab...night-time not so great but its ok. I think most people go out!

    Eilish Morgan 19th July
    Only home Monday from it best staff so pleasant food was the best every day great selection and fantastic for children.

    Valerie Gould
    I didn't like it room too small, food not good and entertainment staff not nice but every
    One is different.

    Angela Crispin-Smith
    We stayed at Sol Pelicanos from 13th to 23rd June. Had a lovely time. Food didn't disappoint, but nothing went with anything as per every hotel we have been to. Great location. Only moan that I can say of, was checking in at the hotel. Took over an hour.

    Joyceebabes Hitch
    I love it great location and great pool best rooms are in Pelicanos part unless you get a pool view or front facing room. The pools are cold and the best meal is breakfast as it is typical buffet style but you in a great location to strip and other restaurants like Mariano’s

    Kelvin Bennett
    I thought it was a great hotel. Room immaculate and friendly staff. Food was a bit bland. You wouldn't starve though. I went half board. I had a good breakfast there, and only had evening meal once. Cheap enough to eat out though.

    Maģģie Prosser
    Go there I been there a couple of times a year love I brilliant for children and adults as well I got no problem with that hotel bar staff are brilliant to and the food is out standing you will go back there again because we all ways do nothing with the hotel and nice and clean.

    Laura Amber Jay Macro
    Lovely hotel perfect location
    Lovely and clean
    Great pool and balcony
    Only stay bed and breakfast some times evening meal can be hit and miss.

    Angela Cartwright
    I was there end of may with 8 others the room’s were clean and breakfast was ok with plenty of choice (fresh omelette s ) ,pool was lovely and noticed tickets were being put on beds and removed if you did not return within 45 mins. Brilliant location, would go there again.

    Claire Browne

    We are in the sol pelicanos now the rooms are nice and clean but the food is disgusting it's the same food every night there's no choice at all will be glad to be back home on Thursday.The hotel has gone right down hill,

    Martha Stokoe
    Just been to Sol Pelicanos lovely clean and the breakfast nice but evening meal okay but we ate out few times xx

    Sally Watson
    Just back from the sol pelicanos stayed on a bed and breakfast basis rooms were great we were in the ocas no balcony though but the food was awful thank god it was just breakfast only went for 1 morning then ate out the rest so noisy aswel it was like a cattle market

    Karen Adele Craven
    Stayed at Sol pelicanos twice, only for the clean rooms and great pool Area !!!
    Food not so good, ate out every morning and every evening’
    Surely hotel management and staff must see there’s a problem with their food?. Especially with their reviews and feedback .
  • Pools are the best bit

    ,

    We are here now kids buffet was on Easter week not on now and the Las ocas clients were eating in Las pelicanos as from the 18th so queues were horrendous food not brilliant ate out a lot can hear everything in adjoining rooms and yes did complain to rep but each to their own pool area is lovely best part of it

    Stayed at the Sol Pelicanos, we were so disappointed, the food was dreadful, we had gone half board, but went out to eat most days, the entertainment wasn’t very good, just a man or woman singer , always seemed to sing the same songs, it was so cold in the bar room many of us were sitting in our coats, other people we spoke to were also not happy, we have stayed at many other hotels over the years, for us this one was definitely the worse, no way would we recommend it,only thing we can say it was spotlessly clean, the cleaning ladies worked really hard.

    Tracey Piggott
    I didn’t think much of the food, but very clean, rooms were nice, the pool area lovely probably one of the best in Benidorm but I wouldn’t stay there again even for the lovely pool.

    Maureen Kay
    Came back from Sol Pelicanos 30th March , thought food was nice, had fresh salmon, sea bass more than once in week plus lots of other choices !

    Denise Tolley
    We stayed there 2 weeks ago and we would never stay there again totally rubbish.

    Sharon Moreland
    We hated it there so much we booked out and went to another hotel the worst hotel we have ever been in in benidorm.

    Joan Baines
    Just come back found food OK your right about it being clean had a brilliant time.

    Deborah Tim Barnatt
    Well I bloody loved it and the food was spot one. Been there almos everyt year and it never disappoints. Best hotel in Benidorm.

    Andrea Davies
    We stayed at the sol pelicanos 23rd-30th March, the food wasn't the best, you couldn't even have water with your meal when you were half board without paying for it. Some of the staff were shouting at guests for taking water. The furniture in the bar area was dirty and dilapidated and the room we were in smelled like an old Ash tray as did the towels.

    Tracey Tuck
    I totally agree about the food. I was there in march the breakfast was ok but other meals was disgusting and you even had to pay extra for a glass of water with your meal

    Lee Langford
    Stayed here two weeks ago. The hotel is exceptionally cheap for B&B, helpful staff and very clean. Not fussed about entertainment as all great singers are outside.

    Michelle Spacey
    We're at sol pelicanos the only good thing is the cleanliness off rooms, food awful as well as being cold, restraunt like a cattle market and all inclusive drinks are like paint stripper, 1 member of reception staff very rude , I asked if she could phone a taxi for a man who had taken seriously ill outside hotel and was told no. Won't be back here but can't wait to come back to Benidorm.

    Sandra McMullan
    Well thank god it wasn’t just me that thought like you and yes the only good thing about this hotel is that it is spotless, I was there 18th till 25th March. I also couldn’t believe how cold it was in the entertainment room and the food was disgusting. I also found the staff in the dining room very miserable and that’s one thing I’ve never really seen in all my years of going to Spain, I know you always get a one off but none of them seemed happy. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Margaret Edwards
    Honest review pick your months for pool we went 3rd week in august and pool was fine but school term its mad queuing up for pool to OPEN at 7am i couldnt believe it mile long they dont open pool till 9 reasturant was hectic at times we wouldnt stay again never ever got a decent spot for sun bed we only just managed to get 2 together wish i still had the pics and vidio it was the worst ive ever seen stampeding to get there spot
  • Been 10 times

    ,

    having stayed in sol pelicanos 10 times I feel OK giving you a review, first thing pick your room wisely ie if you want a pool room in either ocas or pelicanos book it before you go, I prefer ocas but only cause its quieter in peak periods and you get great view up the strip from balcony at night also prefer the ocas dinning room although you can use either.

    Go b&b cause always find the food at night very repetitive and usually not warm enough, breakfast is lovely and always big choice, rooms are cleaned and fresh towels every day, reception is always spotless clean and main pool areas.

    it's right next door to indoor market, piccadilly karaoke bar and marianos chicken bar all 3 are a must, short walk to all main bars on the strip and short walk to the beach about 250mtrs, I personally don't use the bars but only cause I prefer decent entertainment and that's the only downside of the bars at night
  • Superb place

    ,

    This was my third trip to Benidorm in the past year and it was definitely the most enjoyable , it was a trip here with my boys and they also loved the place ..
    The hotel , it is spotlessly clean and the staff are very nice , the entertainment team led by Fernando and Paula were absolutely brilliant with all of their various activities , encouraging interaction between guest and yes friendships were made due to these fun and games .
    The pool area for the main pool was incredible , it surely must be the best pool in Benidorm , the smaller ocas pool area was also really nice and more of a relaxing place without the big pool mayhem .. .
    The rooms were great too , they were lovely and clean , a decent size and had a fridge and more than enough power points , we had a balcony overlooking the Ocas pool area but again no complaints with that ..

    Ok onto the food , this is always subjective , i never normally take much notice of this bit as it's very much down to a personal taste, although i do think that some people expect Michelin star food in a s 3 star hotel and when they dont get it they slate the whole place .. so i stayed Bed ad breakfast and the food was fine and gave us all a decent start to the day i couldn't really ask for much more than that .

    Will i return here ... absolutely i will
