Destination information

Benidorm is a city in the province of Alicante and is located in the province of Marina Baja, on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, only 49 kilometres from Alicante and 140 kilometres from Valencia and 5 kilometres from the hotel. It is a destination that houses treasures from the past such as the Punta del Cavall Tower and the settlement at Tossal de la Cala, which, together with other attractions such as the Mirador de la Punta del Canfali, contrast with the eclectic skyline of skyscrapers against the backdrop of the Sierra Helada mountains so typical of postcards of Benidorm. This balcony over the Mediterranean is famous for its splendid beaches and lively nightlife, in addition to being a venue for traditional festivals that are reminders of the cultural mix upon which the city has been built.
