With only a 15-minute walk between you and the beach, you’ll love staying at the Marconfort Essence. This 4-star, adults-only hotel offers laid-back couples’ holidays to Benidorm, with two outdoor pools, free WiFi, plus a buffet restaurant and three bars.

Thanks to the chill-out concept at the Marconfort Essence, couples can look forward to relaxing Costa Blanca holidays at this adults-only hotel. You’ll have two pools to choose from. The main outdoor pool is a great spot to cool off from the Spanish heat, or you can grab a refreshing drink from the pool bar. If you’re looking for a little more peace and quiet, then you can head over to the chill-out pool. With a buffet restaurant serving all kinds of Spanish and international dishes on-site, you’ll be spoilt for choice at mealtimes. There’s three bars at the hotel, too, perfect for whenever you fancy relaxing with a drink and enjoying the free WiFi. The Marconfort Essence runs a selection of wellbeing classes throughout the day, or why not hire a bike from the hotel and go for a ride around the local area? In the evenings, you can look forward to some exciting hotel-run entertainment, including live music and shows.

You’ll have plenty to explore around the Marconfort Essence, like the gym and spa available at the nearby Marconfort Benidorm Suites. Just 15 minutes away on foot, you’ll find the sandy Levante Beach, and the nearby Balcón del Mediterráneo is well worth a visit. Plus, you can always take a short walk to The Square, where you’ll find some of Benidorm’s local shops, bars and restaurants.

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!
