Port Vista Oro Hotel

The Port Vista Oro Hotel is in a central location, but it still manages to squeeze in a good-sized pool, a restaurant and a snack bar.

The centre of the hotel is the L-shaped pool that sits in the middle of a huge terrace. It’s decorated with multicoloured tables and chairs, while sunbeds also sit on a raised deck so you can make the most of the weather. There’s also a waterside bar, so you’ll never have to venture far for a snack.

For main meals, there’s a buffet restaurant where you can pile your plate high with international dishes. After dark, expect Spanish dancing and line dancing.

Overview of Benidorm

Benidorm is an unforgettable place for a holiday to Costa Blanca. As soon as you arrive, you’ll understand exactly why people return year after year.

With vast beaches and thumping nightlife, the new town is a modern holiday resort full of British touches. There’s also plenty of culture in Benidorm though and the Port Vista Oro Hotel is in the old town, which is packed with cobbled streets, Baroque churches and historic attractions.

Things to do in Benidorm

The Port Vista Oro Hotel is right in the centre of Benidorm, so it’s really easy to explore. You’re practically in the heart of the old town, so you’re surrounded by typically Spanish streets that are filled with tapas bars and coffee shops. It’s a great place to mingle with the locals in the evening.

If you fancy a day on the sand, then the family-friendly Levante Beach is only a five-minute walk away. There’s even a playground in the water where kids can paddle and play.

If you love home favourites, head to the new town. You’ll never struggle to find British pubs and Irish bars that stay open until the early hours. After a stay in Benidorm, the whole family will leave with some great memories!

Resort Summary

The six kilometres of sand formed by Benidorm’s two main bays are a big part of its appeal. Closest to the town centre, and near to many All Inclusive Costa Blanca hotels and restaurants, is Levante beach, also known as Sunrise Beach.

If you just want a paddle then you’ll find the shores pleasingly shallow, while further out in the water is a playground for all ages. There are swinging bridges, diving boards and rafts, with any number of watersports beyond, from banana boats to jet skiing. There is even a cable-skiing station in the sea at this end of town – it’s a bit like water-skiing, but without the boat.

The other bay is Poniente Beach. It’s a big beach, with a long, pedestrianised promenade and a playground for children. You’ll find it slightly calmer than Levante, but there are still plenty of restaurants looking out to sea here. It’s worth taking the trip up to the viewing point in between the two bays, dubbed the ‘Balcon del Mediterraneo’ the balcony of the Mediterranean, for the astounding views.

There’s also the opportunity to wander through the old town, where you’ll find amazing views over the bays and an impressive range of shops and markets to explore. If you fancy going further afield, head out into Costa Blanca to explore the Mediterranean Sea, mountains and natural parks of this beautiful area.
