I've stayed here for the past 8 nights and fly home in the morning. It's my 6th stay in this hotel and I can honestly say, I've never known the food to be as bad as what it has been this time around, which is really strange coz last year I'd say it was the best it's ever been!
Fab location and pool area and we have always found the staff to be courteous and friendly.
Overall it's generally clean, although some areas appear tatty and dated, including the bedrooms in Sol Pelicanos (Ocas rooms are fresher looking).
The other thing that lets this hotel down big time is the evening entertainment. We have popped in to a few other hotels during our stay here as we are looking at somewhere else to stay next year. It's a shame coz we've loved all our hols at the Sol Pel but they need to up their game with all the competition that's around.
Good location, however staff are very rude at this hotel and the food is very poor so wouldn’t bother with a food package. Pool area very nice.

We have just returned from there today, pools are open until about 5pm but they're a bit cool, fine once your in though …. We have had the best week.
Hotel, staff and food were all fab we found that the lunch time buffet was better than the evening, but couldn’t fault anything …. Enjoy your trip
Just come back last Monday could not fault the hotel, apart from the lifts, the pool is open from.9.00 to 19.00 we had a great 4 days there.
The pool and the location are the only good things about the hotel, the hotel is dated and the food is awful.
Big group of us were there in April. Pool was cold but loads of space. Snack bar is good, all inclusive drinks good and location is great

I want to give a big shout out to the staff here - just been for 6 days and think a lot of the negative reviews are unfair.
I was in room 420 - spacious room with LCD tv - clean modern equipped and house cleaned daily.
The food was in my opinion ( I am a chef ) was superb and had great choice - variety and was well presented
I've had king prawns
Slow cooked beef
Rib eye steak
And plenty of local hams and cheese
Plus some epic wines and of course chilled beers
We only paid 22£ per person for 6 dinners half board - amazing value ( jet 2 half board promotion )
Breakfast time same again really decent choices with fresh honey - proper fruit juices and cooked to order omelette’s
Never laughed so much at people getting bread stuck in toasters
Only thing I will say is I think the staff are a few members short but big respect for turning up to work and doing your best.

Stayed here over a dozen times. Can't really fault it. Food has gone downhill a bit lately, but we can always find something to eat.
We stayed there in the summer and thought it was shocking! The queues for the sunbeds are ridiculous you have to get up and queue an hour before they even open the gates and then people literally race and sprint to get a bed, the food isn't good at all. Even the chips are overcooked oven chips, the choices looked inedible and just not appealing at all and the staff are rude. Also the key card stops working 50x a day and it's a nightmare waiting at reception for them go sort it as again there's massive queues and your waiting around for ages!

I along with 5 others went for my daughters hen party, it was brilliant, no complaints, even had gluten free food for my daughter.
You get what you pay for here it's a 3* hotel, staff are lovely, hotel rooms are basic and this reflects in the price
We stayed at the sol pelicanos April last year, breakfast was always good in the terms of what we call normal food, we were a bit restricted in the evening for dinner as there wasn’t much to choose from (not fussy eaters) but a bit repetitive so we ended up eating out a few nights in the week.
The others I was with had stayed here before and said it used to really good in the evening for dinner but could see a big change and it was worse than it had previously been, many found plenty to eat again I think it depends on your preference as I’m not into certain cheeses and olives etc. always tried things before I dismissed it, the kids corner of pizza etc always seemed a bit dried out like it had sat for a while or tasteless but again could be due to the time we went down at.
Snack bar at the pool was really good and as for the drinks there were certain items you had to pay for above your all inclusive, they do plastic bottles of water for free but when we asked for water at dinner we had to pay for it as it was in glass bottles however was only something like €2. The free wine at dinner was a great selection too. If I’m honest it’s trial and error to find out your own preferences.

In the sol pelicanos now on my second week and the room is nice and modern and has been cleaned with fresh towels every day I am really enjoying the food and the staff are great.
Pelicanos is overpriced and overrated. The only decent thing is the pool area, but it’s not heated so wouldn’t be any use winter time.
Sol Pelicanos was spot on. Amazing staff, and immaculate room. Food was average, you wouldn't starve though. I only had breakfast in the end. Cheap enough to ear out
Wouldn’t stay at Sol Pelicanos again, food is awful the only thing nice is the pool area rooms ok

We were there last week; the hotel is in a perfect location and the rooms and pool area were fab. The food however terrible we ate out every day.

I am not a fussy eater and will try lots of new food, for the price paid I expected better. It was edible, but not necessarily enjoyable It is however cheap enough to eat out. The rooms were absolutely spotless and the pool area fantastic though, for me when it was cheap enough to find decent food that was worth it
Stayed twice. Awful, sorry. Relies on being a venue for Benidorm the TV show.
We have been 3 time this year here and we had a great time twice being 4 of us then 10 of us went we had an amazing time here the breakfast so much to choose from rooms were clean and nice and the staff were amazing cannot fault it at all and will be back in March then June with family
I stayed there a few weeks ago on a bed and breakfast basis. I thought the breakfasts were lovely. Rooms were nice and clean; pool area was fab. We ate out on evenings which is cheap enough.

We are just back . it's not the best but not the worst either
It's a lovely hotel. Food to me is not brilliant but I know other people who liked it. Pool area is fantastic. It's cheap to eat out if you need to. I used to stay there and, in the end, went bed and breakfast only.
Food is average.
I think the price of the hotel reflects this. On a plus it is in a good location for the bars and beach
Stayed there in September B&B breakfast was good room was ok very small no kettle
Stayed bed and breakfast a few times and couldn't fault it. Enjoy.

Hey guys just back from the beautiful Benidorm stayed at the sol Pelicanos and I do have mixed reviews about my stay let's start with the bad the food was not great standard there was a variety of choice for adults if you wasn't a fussy eater however it wasn't always hot sometimes only luke warm and on 2 occasions the pork was raw as well as this the only choice for children was pizza the second negative there were 2 bar man that just had no clue 1 of them was just pure rude and the other continuously got drink orders wrong. The pool bar can't be used by all-inclusive guests it's a paid for bar only.
However, rooms were lovely cleaning staff did a really good job and the pool best I've ever seen despite it being cold. Entertainment staff especially zuli and Patricia always made it fun both very talkative and engaging the night-time entertainment was so much better when they were performing or hugely involved with it.
Stayed there the beginnings of October, I am a fussy eater and a never had any problems with the food. Bacon at breakfast was not nice but there were sausages so just had them instead
Stay there few weeks ago can’t fault it

The hotel is Beautiful. Cannot fault that, we had a beautiful room overlooking one of the pools & a sea view on level 4 ... only complaint- Food that should have been served hot, was always cold

Arrived back home yesterday after 7 nights. Stayed at the Sol Pelicanos, we were placed in the ocas hotel just behind the Pelicanos, we were able to use the huge pool, which was fab with a great atmosphere, very clean. Our room wasn't what we had initially paid for, however I went back to the reception after going up to the room and the room was changed straightaway. It was in a great location.
We had the same issue with the room we were given. man in the Ocas made out it was our fault and changed our room to what it should have been "at no extra cost". New room was great. Small Ocas pool nice and chilled. Big Pelicanos pool was fab. Food in there was more than disappointing.
The hotel is overacted, food terrible only plus is the pool
