Hotels for Independent Travel


More and more people are choosing smaller three star hotels around the old town especially those who like to travel independent of the big tour operators. Today it is easy to see why, with the quality of service improved, friendly staff and super locations, these really good value hotels are making a massive comeback.

Especially popular with couples and for single travellers, three hotels offering beach, Tapas bars and a taste of real Spain spring to mind:


Hotel Alameda Rooftop Sun Deck
Alameda Rooftop Sun Deck

Offering nicely refurbished rooms and guests areas the Alameda plonks you right on a pedestrian street less than one minute from the Playa Levante beachfront, “Tapas Alley” and all the fun of the old town.  They have an amazing rooftop sun deck with infinity views plus a street café bar and terrace for people watching.

A more traditional hotels right overlooking the beach. Gives you the best of both a beach holiday and a foodie break as you are just a hop and skip from good Spanish Restaurants and a selection of great British restaurants too. Enjoy good size rooms many with balconies and UK TV in rooms (BBC ITV).  You can be out of bed and on the beach in seconds and evening strolls are the best with over 2km of beach and the prom to walk along.

Completely refurbished back to the shell in 2011 the Roca Mar hotel has got it all in abundance when it comes to small, friendly and unique hotels in Benidorm.  Probably one of the best choices for independently minded folks. You get a great breakfast here that includes home baked pastries and bread fresh every morning. Add in friendly staff, a rooftop solarium and a location just a heartbeat from the top of the old town and “Mirador del Castell” for those all-important sunsets and you got yourself a pretty perfect holiday.
