The Esmerelda Beach Hotel is a real find if you’re on the hunt for value in a fantastic location. Once there, you’ll soon find out why Benidorm is such a favourite with British visitors, and you’ll have great views of the famous beaches that bring so many of them here.

The Esmerelda Beach Hotel really does have one of the best locations in town, and really lives up to its name. The beach you can easily stroll too from your room is the Poniente, the quieter of Benidorm’s two best known beaches. You’ll also find Benidorm’s beautiful Old Town right on your doorstep.

With a two-star rating you shouldn’t expect too much in the way of luxury facilities at the Esmerelda. But you will find a very funky hotel, with unique artwork decorating the walls throughout. All rooms come with TVs, air conditioning, and en suite bathrooms. There are good basic practical facilities, including a 24-hour reception, car hire facilities, tickets and tours help. And of course, there’s a pool.

Wi-Fi is free in public areas and available for a charge in your room. You can book a non-smoking room, and the site’s public areas are non-smoking.

And best of all, you’re at the heart of one of Spain’s best resorts. And Benidorm intends to remain at the top of the tree, investing in new attractions like the Terra Mitica theme park, and paying a lot of attention to the quality of its beaches and facilities.

There’s a huge variety to the holiday experience you can enjoy in Benidorm. It’s a magnet for everyone, from golfers to water sports fans, hill walkers to spa fans. If you want to explore Spanish cuisine and culture head to the Old Town, if you want to enjoy a more British experience stick to the resort’s centre and the seafront – Benidorm is all about choice.

Benidorm is brilliant for a classic beach holiday and much more, and the Esmerelda Beach Hotel makes it fantastic value too. Book now and start saving with loveholidays.

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

Resort Rating











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.


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.


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.


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.


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!
