When: Peak season is going to be crowded with large groups and families, so maybe save your Benidorm extravaganza until September. The weather will still be great.
Where: The Old Town section is quieter than the main hub of the English Square, but close enough so you don’t miss the action.
Why: If you’re looking to explore Spain, then maybe drive straight past Benidorm. But, if you’re looking for a cheeky hook up on your getaway, then get down to a bar and strike up a conversation.
When: If you’ve got your party pants on, then you may not be awake during the day to enjoy the beach. But, July is the best month if you’re planning to ogle at fitties in their swimwear.
Where: Stay as close to English Square as you possibly can; you do not want to get lost on the way back in the early hours.
Why: Benidorm is always voted one of the top destinations for stag and hen parties. The beer is cheap and the bars are up to accommodating large groups of rowdy Brits. Go make your mark.
When: It’s going to be party central in the summer months. If as a couple you’re still full steam ahead for a Benidorm holiday, then head visit in the spring when the atmosphere is less hyper.
Where: The Old Town is better suited to couples who fancy a bit of piece together. Head to Poniente beach in this area, which is quieter than the town’s main coastline.
Why: Unless you and your partner want to dance on table tops together and neck the drinks back, then maybe this resort isn’t for you. That being said, can you resist glorious sunshine and some cheap, yet fabulous food and drink? No, us neither…
When: By going in the peak season (July and August), all attractions will be running, including the zoos and theme parks. You also won’t annoy the school teachers by taking the kids out during term time.
Where: There are plenty of family-friendly hotels located in the centre of Benidorm overlooking the sea. If you fancy somewhere much quieter, then the small town of Albir is only a stone’s throw away.
Why: There are plenty of kid’s shows on to keep them entertained, while you sit at the back with a well needed cocktail/pint/vodka shot.
