Accommodation in Benidorm isn’t hard to find! Tourists flock to this resort town on the western Mediterranean coast of Spain each year, and dozens of agencies and websites exist to help you find the perfect Benidorm accommodation, whether you’re looking to rent a lavish cottage or a modest apartment. Benidorm has a range of facilities to meet every tourist’s need. Are you staying for a week? a month? Traveling with children, pets, or a large group?
Do you want a lavish poolside spa, or a simple, secluded villa? You can have it all if you look carefully through the wide selection of Benidorm apartments available online through personal ads and agencies.
So what do you look for when determining the right accommodation? Benidorm is divided into several districts, each with its own character. Partiers will enjoy the active nightlife and wide selection of entertainment in the eastern neighbourhoods of the Levante and the Rincon de Loix. Families might prefer the more sedate atmosphere to the west, on the Poniente Beach, while history buffs will find themselves enthralled by the charm of Old Town. The location of your hotel or apartment will play a large part in determining the price, but you should also consider what other amenities the hotel has to offer.
If you have any particular needs (e.g., a television, easy access to vegetarian food, child care services, etc.), be sure that your hotel offers these. If you’re not sure, you can call them, or just check online for user reviews, where you can find a wealth of candid feedback about Benidorm accommodations and attractions. The more your hotel or apartment has to offer, the more expensive it might be. Previous visitors to the area can tell you whether or not it will be worth it.
Start your search for Benidorm apartments early. During the peak tourist season, the town operates at 90% capacity, meaning that there aren’t going to be any last-minute vacancies. Conversely, you can find a number of good deals during the winter months. Benidorm enjoys a unique microclimate, thanks to the surrounding mountains which help maintain an average annual temperature of 18 degrees Celsius, ranging from 26 degrees Celsius in the summer to 15 degrees in the winter, making for an agreeably mild holiday, especially for travelers from more northern climates.
Wherever you stay, remember to keep a watchful eye on your personal effects, which are not the responsibility of your hotel or landlord. Also make sure whatever appliances you bring with you will comply with the Spanish electricity supply (AC 220 volts, 50 hertz). Familiarize yourself with local driving laws if you plan to hire a car and make sure you know if your hotel will have adequate parking. It is customary and acceptable to tip hotel staff, like baggage handlers, and, if you are renting from an individual, understand that you will be liable for any damage to the property.
Keep common sense in mind, and you will love your holiday and your Benidorm accommodation!
