ITV Benidorm fans are flocking to stay at the hotel where the hit series is filmed.
So, is the Solana Hotel real? We have tracked down all the information you need to know about the famous location…
Where is the Solana Hotel from Benidorm?
The Solana is the hotel featured in the show where the Benidorm 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 with the outside shots and pool scenes filmed there.
It is in Benidorm, Alicante, Spain.
Can you stay at the hotel?
Yes you CAN stay at the Sol Pelicanos Ocas hotel.
The twin hotel 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 one would say: “It means it’s all free!”
You can also stretch out 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 300 metres away.
The hotel is located 50km from Alicante Airport.
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.
How much does it cost to stay at the hotel?
Prices vary from when you are going and where you are flying out from.
They also depend on which room you book, from a single and superior, to Sol room pool view and family room with balcony.
The time of year you visit will also affect the price.
The website states prices start from £67 per night.
