The hotel caters for all board basis types. When booking all inclusive your day time drinks (not at the two bars previously mentioned) are included. For drinks prices, you can expect to pay around €4 for a beer. You can get cheaper drink prices outside of the hotel at local bars, so if your drinks aren’t included (you’ve only booked half board or full board), you can save money by heading out to a local bar or taverna for a drink after dinner where it is likely to be cheaper.
The Sol Pelicanos Ocas All Inclusive
Many guests will choose to book all inclusive at the Sol Pelicanos Ocas Benidorm and this is a good idea if you don’t want to have to worry about spending money when you arrive in Benidorm, simply put on your wristband when you arrive and you’re sorted. You can book an all inclusive upgrade through your travel agent or with the hotel if you have booked directly with Melia.
Guests can upgrade to All Inclusive Gold which includes premium brand drinks and drinks included at all bars during your stay. The all inclusive reviews are generally very positive, however, if you do like variety and the option to try local restaurants, you may find that bed & breakfast or half board options are more suitable.
Things to Do
If you’re staying at the Sol Pelicanos, there’s plenty to do in the local area as you really are in the heart of Benidorm. While you might want to spend all day, every day by the pool (especially if you’ve book an all inclusive holiday), it’s well recommended to head out of the hotel and explore Benidorm or the local area of the Costa Blanca, no matter whether you’re an active person or prefer a more chilled out holiday.
Benidorm’s signature water park, Sol Pelicanos to Aqualandia will take around 5 minutes in a taxi or is about a 30 minute walk. Located next to Mundomar animal park, Aqualandia offers holidaymakers a variety of fun and entertaining water slides and activities, from the scary drop of Verti-Go to the more relaxing Amazon lazy river. It’s definitely a fun day out for all the family.
Staying at the Sol Pelicanos Ocas, you’re also near Llevant Beach, in fact it’s just a 5 minute walk (about 400m) away, so a day building castles in the sand is a great way to get away from the pool and enjoy the turquoise sea off the coast of the Costa Blanca.
Benidorm Old Town
If you want to explore a little, head to the Old Town of Benidorm for a bit of history, culture and some delicious tapas bars. It’s also home to Benidorm’s gay scene with plenty of friendly bars to enjoy.
Day Trips & Excursions
There are loads of day trips and excursions you can take from Benidorm and can be prebooked before you travel, or in resort once you arrive. From cultural shows and Spanish cooking classes, to discovering some of the quieter parts of the Costa Blanca, there’s plenty to see and do. Why not try something new and exciting like kite surfing or paragliding.
