    Am sitting on balcony looking at sea. So warm! Had a grateful time so far. They still put loads of vodka in your glass lol. Going for siesta so I am ready for evening. This is why we work all year!

    Hi we are a group of 4 middle age ladies who love to party but this year we are staying nearer the old town on the beach for a change. Was wondering if there were any lively places with singers or music nearby we could go to. Also any ideas for a nice day out on the bus or train . Love Benidorm were else can you go and party like a teenager and not get frowned on. Thanks

    Morning Bella, enjoy your holiday, weather has got to be better than here. Have had the heating these past few mornings! Hope my hotel is ok, as I said some good reviews on Tripadvisor. Only down side is the walk from the drop off point by the Agua Azul. Still it won't kill me!

    Hi Ruby yes summer was pathetic. We usually stay at Corona del Mar, but was booked so staying at benelux. Hubby went there in January and said it would be fine for us. I think where you are staying has a good reputation.

    Hi Bella, I have been to Benidorm on numerous occasions and know the old town well, but I haven't stayed at this particular hotel before, usually the Royal or the Victoria. Just hoping the weather holds up. Desperately need some sun after our dismal summer

    Hi Ruby the old town is great. Loads of shops, cafés, restaurants, little bars and the amazing Tapas Alley. Balcon del mediterraneo is lovely to sit and watch the world go by.... great views. Plenty of room on the beach. Enjoy :)
