Whether the rest in Benidorm will cost much, how much money to take with you on vacation, what prices for food and in the restaurants of Benidorm – I will try to answer these questions in this article.
Benidorm (Costa Blanca): hotel prices
To understand the price of a vacation on the Costa Blanca, it is worth starting with hotel prices. To do this, we conventionally divide accommodation options into 3 parts: expensive luxury hotels or villas, middle-class hotels (comfortable, with food, close to the sea), cheap hotels or apartments (preferably with their own kitchen, so that you can cook and eat at home).
To see hotel prices, open my favorite booking.com
Among the luxury accommodation options are, for example, the Barceló Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa (from 3300 € for 10 nights), located in the Terra Mitica- Grand Luxor All Suites Hotel – Terra Mítica® Theme Park (from 2700 € for 10 nights) , chic Hotel Boutique Villa Venecia (from 2700 € / from 4000 € with three meals a day for 10 nights). If you are interested in just such options, then you will easily find them at the booking.
Further, middle-class hotels in which it is comfortable to live with family and which are accessible to a wider circle. These are 3-4 * hotels; often there is the opportunity to order two or three meals a day. For example, Hotel Montesol 3 * (from € 932 with breakfast and dinner), Hotel Olympus 3 * (from € 1,120 with 3 meals), Deloix Aqua Center 4 * (from € 1,500 with breakfast, lunch and dinner), Gran Hotel Bali 4 * – a hotel located in the tallest building in Benidorm and one of the highest in all of Spain (from 1679 € with 3 meals a day), Hotel Don Pancho 4 * – note, this hotel is very well rated! (from 1940 € for 10 days with three meals a day), well, our hotel Brisa 4 *, review here (from 2000 € for 10 days in the midst of the season!)
Apartments can also be searched by booking. Price starts from 650 € for 10 nights. For this price, as a rule, up to 4 guests can stay in apartments, and if you are traveling as a family, or for example, as a company, it will be quite profitable.
You can also search on the sites for daily rental , for examle on airbnb (by the way, here is the discount for the first booking). Sometimes the price tag slips slightly lower than at the booking, but you need to look well. Again, there is more choice.
Airbnb: rental housing with local residents (reviews, guidance)
In the end, what we have. Accommodation in Benidorm will cost per day from 35 € per couple to 400 € and above.
Here are a few more profitable options:
Benidorm Food Prices
There are many grocery stores in Benidorm, including the Carrefour express (both on the Levante beach and on the Poniente beach), perhaps there is also a city, but since we had a full board at the hotel, we often did not go shopping and didn’t specially were looking for. In my opinion, the prices are affordable, not even in the cheapest store, comparable to ours, the Urals, maybe a little more expensive. Now I will write in more detail.
Fruits and vegetables (per 1 kg):
Apples 1,5-1,75 €
Pears 1,39-3,75 €
Kiwi 2,10-7 €
Cucumbers 0,99 €
Ordinary cabbage 1,39 €
Freshly squeezed orange juice (per 1 liter) 2,90 €
Ordinary packaged juices – from 0,8 €
Cola and others. 0,8 € for a jar 0,33, 1 € for 0,5l
Chicken and meat (per 1 kg):
Chicken fillet 5.50 €
Chicken legs 3.30 €
Chicken 1.80 €
Minced chicken 2 €
Jamon from 14 €
Beer: 0.5 € for 0.33l, 1.95 € for a pack of 6 cans
Wine: from 2 €, an average of 4-5 € per bottle
Activia yogurts 1,5-2 € per pack 4 pcs
Sandwiches 1,9 €
Nutella 2,06-2,78 €
Chocolate Milka 0 , 9 € (small tile), 2,70 € (large tile)
Tea bag 1,20 € – 2,25 €
Ice cream on average about 2 €.
Toilet paper 2 € (6 rolls)
Gaskets, tampons – 1,60-3,80 €
Let me remind you that these are the prices from the first supermarket that came across, relatively expensive, the prices in the same Carrefour are cheaper. Perhaps there are also supermarkets with cheaper products.
Prices in Benidorm (Costa Blanca) in restaurants
Since we lived in a hotel and we had 3 meals a day, we did not go to restaurants in Benidorm. For the report I photographed the menu of some cafes, therefore, see for yourself:
