Riudor Hotel

The Hotel Riudor is an adults-only hotel that’s at the heart and soul of new Benidorm and only 200 metres away from Levante Beach. As well as being close to the beach, the hotel is right in the thick of the action, which is perfect if you’re looking for easy access to Benidorm’s pubs, bars and cabaret clubs. The Hotel Riudor is so popular that many of the holidaymakers who come here return two to three times each year. When you stay here, you’ll be sure to rave about the pool and the elegant buffet restaurant, which is catered to English tastes. In the evening, the outside terrace hosts entertainment such as live acts and quizzes, while the bar offers regular happy hours.

Overview of Costa Blanca

Costa Blanca offers holidaymakers buckets of golden sand, with over 200 kilometres’ worth spread across the gorgeous coastline. Holidays to Costa Blanca might be great for sun, sea and relaxation, but resorts such as Benidorm, where you’ll find the Hotel Riudor, have much more to offer as well, including an enviable nightlife scene and fun slides and rides. This makes Costa Blanca perfect for sun seekers and adrenaline junkies alike. With magnificent mountain views on one side and a picturesque coast on the other, Costa Blanca is the perfect spot to sit back, relax and unwind with a plate of tapas and a jug of sangria.

Things to do in Costa Blanca

The Hotel Riudor provides great access to the sights and sounds of Benidorm. Levante Beach is right on the doorstep. Here you can sit and unwind in the sun or take part in water sports activities, such as jet skis and banana boats. Kids also love the playground on the water, which suits all ages. By night, Benidorm transforms into a nightlife hub. Plenty of English and Irish bars are available for those looking for a laid-back drink, while some large clubs are open until the early hours. If you’re looking for adventure, then try Aqualandia water park (which has some of the world’s highest slides) or Mundomar animal park, which are both conveniently located nearby.

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.
