When I open the list of hotels in a particular city, the first minute I panic -how from SUCH amount of hotels, apartments, guest houses, etc. choose the “same” option? Moving a little away from the shock, I start by noting out completely inappropriate places of residence, leaving a small sample and already studying reviews, services, comparing prices.
The content of the article:
I want to help you a little and conduct this initial sampling. I will single out several hotels in Benidorm of each category, and you can already choose the most suitable of them. If no hotel is suitable, then you can browse all the hotels and choose the one that you like the most.

All the hotels in my selection are hotels near the beach (within walking distance). However, I want to note that there are no hotels with a private beach in Benidorm . All beaches are public and free (payment is only for sun loungers and umbrellas, and on your towel you can relax for free).
Important: prices are indicative, for the “high” season. In low season, for example in October, the price is lower by about 30%. Therefore, be sure to check prices and availability on your dates.
You can see the map of Benidorm hotels below:
5 star hotels in Benidorm
I’ll start with the best and most expensive hotels – 5 * hotels.
Hotel Boutique Villa Venecia . This is one of several hotels located right on the cape between the two beaches. It is closer to Levante beach, but it takes 3-4 minutes to get to it. But the location of the hotel provides incredibly beautiful views. In addition to the view, the hotel provides all the services corresponding to five stars: a terrace with a hot tub, designer furniture in the rooms, a coffee machine. At the restaurant you can taste the best wines and Mediterranean dishes. The hotel also has a spa. The rating at the booking is 9.1. The price is about 340 euros per night (double room) with breakfast and about 415 euros with three meals a day.
Barceló Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa . This hotel is one of the best in Benidorm, but it is not located on the beach (about 2 km), but next to the Terra Mitica theme park. Remoteness from the beach is compensated by 7 pools in the complex. The hotel is decorated in the Balinese-Thai style, has a Thai spa. The hotel has 4 restaurants (including an Asian restaurant) and 3 bars.
Judging by the reviews, the hotel is populated by many families with children, so whoever is concerned about this, be prepared. Anyway, decide for yourself how logical it is to fly to Spain and live in an “Asian” hotel, albeit a 5-star one.
The rating at the booking is 8.8, the price starts from 365 euros per night with breakfast.
4 star hotels in Benidorm
The selection of 4 star hotels in Benidorm is simply huge. My opinion, if there is a financial opportunity, it is best to book four-star hotels in Benidorm. Firstly, excellent service, comfortable accommodation, great food. And secondly, the price difference between 4 * hotels and 3 * hotels is not always very big. Of course, you decide, depending on the requirements of comfort and financial capabilities.
Already wrote a review about the hotel in which we lived – this is the Brisa hotel , located on the Levante beach. The rating for booking is 8.7, the price per season is about 163 euros per night with three meals a day. The description will not be repeated here.
Hotel Don Pancho . Hotel with very good rating – 9.1. It is located not on the beach itself (Levante), but literally 100 meters, it is 2-3 minutes walk. The hotel also has a swimming pool heated in the winter season (relevant if you are traveling, for example, in spring or late autumn). Good restaurant, clean rooms. Nearby are cafes, bars, restaurants. The promenade is also very close
Prices are about 220 euros with three meals a day.
Villa del Mar Hotel . This hotel is located on Poniente Beach. The hotel itself has a sun terrace and an outdoor pool. The spa includes a sauna, Turkish bath and indoor pool. Unlike many other options, in this hotel you can choose Al Inclusive food (in the reviews it is noted that even the drinks are quite decent). The hotel also has its own parking – relevant for those who rent a car to drive around Spain. Nearby are many cafes, bars, a supermarket and a pharmacy.
Of the minuses, they write about not very comfortable beds, and also that the restaurant is quite small.
Booking rating 9.0, price 260 euros (three meals a day) and 290 euros (all inclusive)
Hotel RH Princesa . A hotel with a good rating (8.7 for booking), with the ability to order all-inclusive meals. It is located in a quiet area, near the Old Town, but you will have to walk about 7 minutes to the beach (Levante). There is a spa, gym, pool with two slides. For children – animation. Nearby are many shops, including a large supermarket Mercadona. Of the minuses, again, a small restaurant (it seems to me that this is a problem for many hotels in Benidorm) and a difficult car access.
The price is from 188 euros for three meals a day and 228 euros for all-inclusive.
Port Benidorm Hotel & Spa 4 * Sup . New modern hotel with a rating of 8.9. The hotel is clean and comfortable. There is a terrace, an outdoor pool, a bar. For children – animation. Levante Beach is about 3 minutes on foot (the hotel is located at the end of the beach, but a little “deep”. Nearby are many cafes, as well as McDonald’s, burger king, subway. That part of the beach where you can get out of the hotel is nice (gently sloping shore and there are no stones, which would obstruct the entrance.) Here is the beginning of the promenade, which stretches first to the balcony of the Mediterranean, and then along the Poniente beach.
Of the minuses – a glass door to the toilet 🙂 For an amateur, so to speak.
At a price of 200 euros per day (3 meals a day), for 235 you can take all inclusive.
3 star hotels in Benidorm. Large selection of three-star hotels in Benidorm. At a price they will be a little cheaper than four-star ones, but I’m sure that the service in them is also at a high level.
Hotel Poseidon Playa . Poseidon Playa is a good three-star hotel in Benidorm (rating 8.0 from booking). Located next to Poniente Beach (literally 2 minutes walk). Rooms with a terrace overlook the sea. The restaurant works as a buffet – you can order different types of food, more profitable – full board or all inclusive.
There is a swimming pool in the hotel, as well as a stage where performances are held, as well as a bar. There is an animation program for adults and children, in the summer there is a mini club. For stays of 7 days or more – a free transfer from Alicante station.
Of the minuses – a safe for an additional fee, drinks on all inclusive are not very (noted in some reviews)
The price is from 163 euros for three meals a day (half board is slightly cheaper), for “all inclusive” you have to pay about 195 euros per room per night.
Hotel Bilbaino . Located on Levante Beach, close to the Old Town. The hotel itself is quite old (built in 1926), but according to the photo, the repair is not bad, everything is clean, comfortable, modern. Most rooms have direct or side sea views. Of the benefits – a free safe, daily change of towels, and, of course, a great location. According to reviews – full compliance with 3 stars.
Booking Rating 8.1; price of 170 euros per night with three meals a day.
Hotel Servigroup Venus . About 300 meters from the Levante beach is the Servigroup Venus 3 * hotel (rating 8.8). The hotel is not on the first line, but the hotel has a rather large pool and sun terrace. There is a playground. An animation is held in the evening. Good selection of dishes in the restaurant.
Parking is paid with an inconvenient entrance, there is no kettle in the rooms – the main disadvantages noted by guests. In my opinion (from the photo) – a modest decoration of the rooms.
The price is 150 euros with three meals a day, about 115 euros in the “low season”.
2 star hotels in Benidorm
Hotel Perla . This 8.0-star hotel is located about 300 meters from Levante Beach, a 4-minute walk away. The Old Town is a 15-minute leisurely walk. Nearby is a stop with links to Alicante Airport .
Large pool, clean modern rooms. A good selection of dishes in the restaurant for a 2 star hotel. Anyway, both in the photo and in the reviews, everything is pretty good. The price is 2 times lower than for 4-star hotels. 130 euros per night in full board.
La Santa Faz . Hotel in Benidorm is for adults only. The booking rating is high – 8.2. Located in the Old Town, so you can alternate your vacation on different beaches. And to Levante and to Poniente, I think, about 10 minutes on foot, no longer, you can also get to Mal Pas beach. There is a bar, but there is no pool – like a city hotel. Meals – only breakfast.
Wi-Fi is only at the reception, and on the street next to the hotel there are 2 bars (those who are sensitively sleeping, keep in mind).
The price for the hotel is 128 euros based on breakfast.
Hotel RH Canfali . Another hotel located on a cape that separates two beaches. Located right in front of the 5-star Hotel Boutique Villa Venecia.
All rooms have air-conditioned and bathrooms, and some rooms also have a balcony with sea or church views. The rooms are clean and comfortable, albeit small. There are sun loungers on the roof terrace; there is no pool at the hotel. There is also a terrace with great views for breakfast. When choosing half board, you can choose whether to go for lunch or dinner.
But there are problems with parking. The car must be parked 200 meters from the hotel. There is also no hairdryer in the room, but you can ask for it at the reception.
The price is 132 euros for a full board, for 150 euros you can book a room with a sea view. Booking Rating 8.1

There are a lot of apartments in Benidorm, but I recommend that you take a closer look at the following.
Apartamentos Lido (rating 9.4!). Levante Beach is 3 minutes, the hotel has a swimming pool, terrace, and the kitchen in the rooms has a dishwasher, washing machine, oven, stove. And also – a gorgeous view from the balcony.
Price per season 100 euros (without meals)
Apartamentos Benidorm (rating 9.3!). Another great apartment in Benidorm. Equipped with everything you need, including an oven, microwave, refrigerator. Not on the beach, about 2 km. But the price will please you – 70 euros per day per season (two-bedroom apartments!) + 30 euros for cleaning for all accommodation.
Apartamentos La Palma (rating 9.0!). Apartments in the city center, to the nearest beach 400 meters, to the Levante beach, according to my calculations, for 8-10 minutes you can walk. Near shops, cafes, bars, restaurants – everything your heart desires. Capacity up to 4 people, price about 107 euros (per season). The kitchen is equipped with everything necessary, so you can eat at home.
Villas in Benidorm. How to rent a villa by the sea
If hotels and apartments are not for you, then you can take a look at the villas in the vicinity of Benidorm. It is clear that it is impossible to find a villa in the city center, but at a distance of 5-10 km from Benidorm, the choice of villas is quite good.
You can search for the same booking in the villa section . If you are relaxing with a large company or several families (8-12 people), then renting a villa in Benidorm will be a very budget option: in season a three-bedroom villa (that is, for 6 people) 9 km from Benidorm will cost from 100 euros per night, and Chalet Benidorm for 11 guests will cost only 200 euros per day!
That’s all. Have a nice rest!
