If location is one of the key criteria for picking your holiday accommodation then the Gala Placidia Hotel places you perfectly to enjoy Britain’s favourite Spanish resort. It’s 500m from the famous Levante Beach and around 1km from the epicentre of the resort. Popular with both couples, families, and groups, Gala Placidia Hotel is fantastic value, especially if you go all-inclusive.

The Gala Placidia Hotel has 135 twin rooms for up to four guests, all with air conditioning, en-suite bathrooms, satellite TV, and extra security, soundproofing, Wi-Fi, or balcony views among the extras available.

All-inclusive packages include buffet or restaurant dining with drinks for all your meals; snacks throughout the day; and a bar from 10am to midnight. Deals also include access to the hotel’s spa.

To entertain you on site you’ll find games – pool, darts, ping pong – and a pool. Each night there is entertainment to get you into the Costa spirit.

Levante beach is just down the road. There you’ll find a famously lively crowd enjoying the sun or excellent water sports and entertainment. If you fancy something more tranquil, that’s easily found simply by walking a little further along the coast to Poniente beach, which opens up into a wilder and more secluded coast line.

There’s lots of choice in the town too. The centre is famous for its fantastic nightlife and internationally recognised clubbing. But there’s also a beautiful old town up on the hill with beautiful views and some wonderful traditional dining and drinking.

Benidorm is family friendly too, with the massive Terra Mitica and Paramount Pleasure Park theme parks just the latest of the kid-friendly attractions that can throw some adventure and adrenaline into your sunshine break.

The Gala Placidia Hotel puts you in just the right place to explore and enjoy every aspect of this – and the tour desk will help you book your excursions – at fantastic value prices.

Rows of shops selling beach buckets and flip-flops line the seafront of Benidorm, the Costa Blanca's largest and liveliest holiday resort town, where hordes of tourists throng the streets 24 hours a day. Of the thousands who come to holiday here on the town's three miles (5km) of white sandy beaches each year, many have stayed and purchased apartments in the numerous blocks that now dot the skyline. Benidorm, north of Alicante, is the party capital of the Costa Blanca with an unrivalled nightlife and a daytime carnival-like beach culture.

Remnants of Benidorm's historic past are now well hidden, but tucked into the Casco Antiguo section are the ruins of a castle built in the 14th century to fend off Berber pirates. Benidorm's spectacular sunsets are best viewed from the castle's 'mirador' (balcony). The place to see and be seen in the town however is the Playa de Levante, a two-mile (3km) boardwalk lined with trendy cafés and bars

Activities

Benidorm's major holiday attractions are its spectacular beaches. The two huge sweeping crescents stretch for over three miles (5km) and are known as Levante and Poniente - Spanish for sunrise and sunset. They are kept meticulously clean and are consistently voted among the cleanest and most popular beaches in Europe. All sorts of watersports can be organised from the beaches from swimming and diving off the man-made rafts to jet skiing, banana boat rides, parasailing and scuba diving. On the outskirts of town tourists can visit the water parks or Terra Mitica, Spain's largest theme park with a terrifying roller coaster. There are also loads of options for those wishing to escape Benidorm for a day; beautiful mountainous countryside surrounds the holiday resort and jeep safaris and cycle trips around this rugged interior are becoming increasingly popular. Alicante, 25 miles (40km) south of Benidorm, is the Costa Blanca's main city and has a number of interesting sights. Other good days out include a coach trip to the ancient mountain fortress at Guadalest, built by the Moors in 715, and the town of Altea with its delightful medieval cobbled streets and beautiful Mediterranean views, eight miles (13km) north of Benidorm.

Restaurants

Top-rated restaurants in Benidorm include Paneil's, China Garden, India Gate, Mme Butterfly, The Vagabond and Witches Bistro. All the major fast food restaurants are also available and the old harbour is the best place to try out the local cuisine.

Nightlife

Benidorm is one of the biggest nightspots on the Med with something to suit all preferences. There are loads of bars hosting live shows, quizzes, bingo, karaoke and drag shows& and lots of live bands playing everything from Abba to ZZ Top. Those looking for a party in Benidorm should go to Wheeltappers, Sinatras, the Palladium or the Stardust Benidorm.

Shopping

The streets of Benidorm are lined with gift shops catering for people on holiday and the supermarkets are fully stocked with well-known brands. Prices in the holiday resort are cheap, particularly alcohol and cigarettes. There is an open-air market every Wednesday and a rastro(car boot sale) every Sunday next to the railway station. The town of Altea is worth a visit on Tuesdays for its outdoor market or simply for a leisurely stroll along the promenade, while Alicante is a good destination for shoppers in search of some more sophisticated shops.

Negatives

Benidorm is not a good choice for those wanting an authentic Spanish holiday; it's a bit like Blackpool in the sun, but for those looking for entertainment and nightlife it can't be beaten. The resort abounds with hundreds of persistent touts trying to sell tourists everything from trinkets to timeshare apartments. There are also insistent promotions staff outside the bars and restaurants, but can be worth chatting up as they sometimes offer free drinks. However, as with any party destination there have been reports of drinks being spiked, visitors out on the town should be wary of leaving their drinks unattended or accepting drinks from strangers. Benidorm caters for all ages; older visitors may think there are too many youngsters while others think there are too many OAPs!
