Our mystery man on the street enjoys sneaky look the very pleasant PUEBLO HOTEL a popular 3* from SERVIGROUP.

In the top 30 hotels in Benidorm according to tripadvisor a fantastically well maintained hotel with great facilities and located away from the noise of the late bars, yet only a five minute hop to the beach and a stone throw from the famous Benidorm market.

Pueblo Hotel in Benidorm

THE HOTEL

A modern refurbished hotel offering 539 room spread over 15 floors in a traditional high-rise with views and unique to the Pueblo, 5 annexe buildings overlooking the pool and gardens with just 4 floors including ground floor rooms.  There are several guest areas each with a very different atmosphere including a large terrace to the front of the hotel, a café bar with pool terrace and a comfy lounge bar.

THE ROOMS

Hotel Pueblo Twin Room

Every room is bright, very well kept and exceptionally clean.  Light coloured beech wood and pale green colours create a very pleasant atmosphere.  Rooms enjoy a balcony or terrace with chairs and a table.  Bathrooms have great walk-in showers, attractive glass wash basin and of course a hairdryer.  Room facilities include FREE WiFi, flat screen TV with up to 60 channels including BBC and ITV also a room safe, telephone and air-conditioning or heating depending on the season.  All you need for a comfy holiday with a tip-top daily maid service.

THE FOOD

Served buffet style in a modern restaurant with funky chairs!  Unless you are really fussy everyone will find the food excellent, indeed servigroup are big on food!  The salads offer a big choice, every night there are stews, a Paella of the day, Pizzas and Pastas plus show cooking too.  Breakfast is vast with English favourites too.  We could not find anything to moan about, it was all good.  Dinner is served until 9pm, lunch until 3pm and a civilised breakfast until 10am.

THE POOL

Pueblo Hotel Pool and Gardens

Surrounded by the brightly coloured annexes and mature gardens and trees the pools offer an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Benidorm.  Lots of sunbeds and lots of space.  Enjoy two big pools and a Kiddies pool plus in winter a heated indoor pool.  The café bar terrace also overlooks the pool.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

pueblo-hotel

Three things really stand out at the Pueblo, lovely guest areas, very friendly and helpful staff (knowledgeable guest service desk in main lobby) and well above average food which was more 4* than 3*.  This is a good choice for couples and ideal for a low-season or mid-season holiday as less people are about.  The hotel is obviously well run and regular re-investment is high on the list of priorities in servigroup hotels, therefore you know that you are getting just what you have paid for.  Approved by many big tour operators including the likes of Jet2 holidays. We liked the Hotel Pueblo, very pleasant indeed. Great premium Gin & Tonic menu too!

A lazy afternoon on the Playa Levante in the Rincon de Loix

Sand Castles, Sunbeds, Skiing

and a bit of a stroll along the prom

Holidays in Benidorm

Despite a reputation as a rowdy place frequented by beer belly heavy drinking groups of lads, there is more to this most famous part of the Levante beach in Benidorm than you might think!

Summer on the Levante Beach in Benidorm.

Summer on the Levante Beach in Benidorm.

Even on the final Sunday afternoon in August there were plenty of empty sunbeds and still lots of space to enjoy the sun without having a strangers toe in your face!  With a price tag of 4€ for a sunbed and 4€ for a big parasol relaxing in comfort is affordable.

EAT AND DRINK

You will not be short of dining and drinking options, this part of the beach offers every type of low cost dining option from all day big bad greasy English breakfasts to the obligatory Paella.  And big terrace bars offer all the favourite British beers, local lagers, Guinness and all the days sporting fixtures you could want in bars such as the “Bar Sol”,  “Lazy Cow” or the British “Terrace Bar” which oddly does not actually have a terrace!

WATER SPORTS

For those who demand an adrenaline rush in between applications of factor 20 sun protection the famous cable-ski has powered folks along a 1,000 metre circuit without the need for a fast boat for 47 years!  26€ buys you an hour including a wakeboard.  If you prefer the traditional beach water activities 80€ buys you a 3 for the price of 2 adventure on the “flyfish” big yellow “banana ride” plus the thrill ride with a view, a circuit “parasailing”.  If you prefer bobbing along without the rush take the boat to Benidorm Island for just 14€ and see what all the fuss is about on the tiny island out in the bay.

TAKE A STROLL

Before lunch or perhaps Aprés-ski the perfect day on the Levante would not be complete without a stroll along the promenade.  With a round trip of over 3kms if you walk the entire beach this is a great way to work off the big bad greasy breakfast or simply to people watch and stop off for a coffee, glass of wine or choose from over 200 different ice creams at the many “heladeria” dotted along the beach.

The famous promenade along the Playa Levante in Benidorm.  Great for a stroll in the Summer.

Playa Levante, Rincon de Loix by day is what Benidorm is all about.  Yes it is a bit tacky in places and may not be everyone´s cup of tea, but one thing is for sure, you can get a nice cup of tea, fish and chips, pint of the black stuff and build a sand castle on a day trip to the Benidorm sands!

A traditional Chiringuito near Benidorm

A traditional Chiringuito now open all Summer

Very chilled beers at the shack on the beach

 


The origin of these little Summer beach bars is South American, coming from a sweet coffee and sugar cane drink enjoyed by farm workers, labourers and those looking for a coffee kick to keep them going, a “Chiringo”. Added to hot water and sold by vendors from little shacks on the side of the road which became known as Chiringuitos.

20130613-000645.jpg

The bars first appeared in Spain in the early part of the 20th century and really took off in a big way in the 1950´s as tourism bought crowds to the Costas and in the 1960´s as the Hippies arrived on Barcelona beaches, in Ibiza and the Canaries. Originally just small rustic shacks serving a few cold drinks and maybe some basic tapas, perhaps offering fresh fish lunches cooked on open fires. Today many of these bars are in reality large restaurants taking big money, not really in the spirit of the original beach shacks.

Benidorm (sadly) has never allowed, Chiringuitos (until this year) and nor will you find one in neighbouring Albir or Villajoyosa. However, for the last few seasons an original “shack” style beach bar has opened during summer months. Located few kilometres from Benidorm at Raco Conil Nudist Beach. Just off the Villajoyosa road (take a left at the old Casino past the Crematorium). This is a true Chiringuito with no mains water, no mains electricity and only offering (very) cold beers, drinks, some snacks and Ice Cream. Exactly what it should be, a chill-out bar open all day until dusk (very ate in high Summer) where you can relax for a few hours with good friends, take a dip in the sea, enjoy the sunshine and all in a lovely unspoilt location.

Chiringuito Raco Conil is enjoyed by couples (some gay some straight), families, a few singles and the odd wrinkly bottom too. It is after all a nudist beach! You will meet all sorts of people at this shady beach hut, which really is in the spirit of the “Chiringuito” from days before mass tourism and before all the planning regulations. Pop over to Benidorm one weekend this summer and enjoy the shack on the beach, it will not be around forever and must close after September, it is after all a Summer bar!
