Regente Hotel

Enjoying an amazing location close to all the bars, restaurants and shops, the classically-styled Regente Hotel is an ideal spot for the whole family to get away from it all. The pool is a beast, and there’s another one just for kids who also have a playground to discover. There are two bars catering to all your needs, including one by the pool along with a comprehensive buffet restaurant. Levante Beach is a short walk away when you want to feel the sand between your toes, and the New Town isn’t far either when it’s time to party.

Overview of Costa Blanca

The stuff of summer party legend, this place is made for fun. The long sunny days, the late hedonistic nights, that’s what holidays to Costa Blanca are renowned for. However, there’s more to Benidorm than that, and the town has been around for nearly 700 years. You’ll find many lovely cafés, bars and eateries in the Old Town. The newer part of town has plenty to offer too, including exciting nightlife. If you’re staying at the Regente Hotel, you’re super close to all the action.

Things to do in Costa Blanca

For epic nightlife, Avenue De Mallorca is where the super-clubs can be found. If you fancy a touch of Vegas, head to Benidorm Palace where you’ll be treated to incredible live shows including flamenco dancers, magicians and jugglers. They have pre-show dinners too. Towards the end of June, there’s the Hogueras de San Juan, a week-long fun-fest ending with papier-mâché figures being burned on a bonfire, followed by fireworks and a beach party. Talking of beaches, the four-mile Poniente Beach is a great one. The town that never sleeps, Benidorm has it going on, and the perfect summer weather makes it a haven for sun-seekers from far and wide. You’ll never be bored as new experiences are around every corner, and if you’re staying at the Regente Hotel, it’s all right there when you’re ready.

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.
