What is ITV’s Benidorm?

ITV’s award-winning show Benidorm has returned to our screens.

The comedy follows the lives of Brits abroad at the all-inclusive The Solana hotel in the heart of Benidorm, with hilarious consequences.

You can catch it again on the ITV Hub.

Is the Solana Hotel featured on Benidorm real?

The Solana is the hotel featured in the show where the characters stay.

However, although the hotel featured is a REAL hotel, it is not called the Solana – and there are two of them.

The hotel is actually called Sol Pelícanos Ocas and it is a twin hotel where you CAN stay.

The outside shots and pool scenes are filmed there.

What is on offer at the Sol Pelicanos Ocas?

The Sol Pelicanos Ocas is a twin hotel and gives you access to both properties’ facilities, so you get double the benefit during your stay.

The hotel has three pools, two buffet restaurants and five bars.

Guests can dine just like the ones in the Benidorm TV show, and opt for the All Inclusive deal, which as Mick Garvey in Season 1 would say: “It means it’s all free!”

You can also stretch our by one of the famous pools and soak up the Spanish sun.

It includes the swim up bar which is featured on the hit show.

There is a  kids club and the beach is only 300m away.

The hotel is located 50km from Alicante Airport.

Things you won’t find at the Sol Pelicanos Ocas, that are featured in Benidorm Solana Hotel?

Unfortunately you won’t find the Solana’s reception area or Kenneth’s Blow and Go salon, as these scenes are filmed on a set half a mile away from the real hotel.

The room scenes are also filmed in the Acuarium II Apartments, which are next door to the Sol Pelícanos Ocas hotel.

And if you did fancy popping to the Solana karaoke bar Neptune’s, this is actually over the road from the Sol Pelícanos Ocas and is really called Morgan’s Tavern.

They also depend on the time of year you are going.
