ITV’s comedy-drama Benidorm has become a huge hit since its creation back in 2007. Voted “Best Comedy Programme” at the National Television Awards in 2007 and 2011 with a third nomination this year, the show has just broadcast its 5th series, proving it is still going strong. Benidorm already has a huge following and now many fans are flocking to the resort to get a piece of that action and experience the luxury of the Solana Resort for themselves. Like most of the show’s characters (not all, as we know some celebs like to make a special guest appearance as themselves, Cilla Black being one) the Benidorm Solana Resort is actually a fictional hotel complex.
Where is Benidorm really filmed?
The majority of the series is set at the Sol Pelicanos Ocas in Benidorm, 2 sister hotels located 2km from the lively resort centre and only five minutes’ walk from the popular Levante Beach. These hotels are a great choice and hugely popular for fun filled Benidorm holidays. Guests really do have the use of all the facilities featured in the programme and can wander between the two properties to enjoy a choice of restaurants, the Flintstones’ Lounge, lagoon-style swimming pool, 3 Jacuzzis and swim-up bar. With the choice of bed and breakfast, half board, full board or all-inclusive packages, the Sol Pelicanos Ocas can fulfil every holiday maker’s needs.
The Solana Resort reception area and many of the indoor scenes featured in the show were shot at the Buenavista Apartments. If self-catering is your preferred choice, this hotel offers affordable comfortable, modern & clean apartments and great facilities, including Sauna, Jacuzzi, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, minigolf, gym, bar and snack bar. There is also the option of bed and breakfast too.
Wherever you choose to stay in Benidorm, you can be sure that there will be plenty of fun in the sun to be had!Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
