Benikaktus is a 3-star hotel in Benidorm, on Spain’s Costa Blanca. Just minutes from the famous Levante Beach, and within walking distance of shops, restaurants, bars and transport links, this hotel is ideal for travellers seeking a modern, convenient location at a great price.
Despite its beachside location, the Benikaktus boasts an outdoor swimming pool, which is covered and heated during the winter months, as well as a Jacuzzi and a children’s pool. The sun terrace beside the pool looks out onto Levante Beach, Benidorm’s waterfront strip, and the breathtaking Alicante Mountains, which stretch out behind the city. Other communal areas include a buffet restaurant, TV lounge, and meeting room. The private rooms themselves are equipped with air conditioning/central heating, a private bathroom, satellite television, and – most impressive of all – a terrace with a sea view. At the 24-hour reception desk you can consult the staff for advice about local attractions, arranging bike and car rental, and exchanging currency.
Outside the hotel you’ll find plenty to see and do. Within walking distance there’s a mini golf course, a bowling alley and several amusement parks. On Levante Beach you can try your hand at water sports, or simply recline on the golden sand. For the best photos, make your way to the Balcón de Mediterráneo, an outcrop that sits at the western end of the beach. Aïguera Park is a pretty public garden, and a gorgeous spot for a lazy picnic, while the Aqualandia waterpark, northeast of the city centre, is ideal for energetic kids.
