    It is a 5 a 10 minute walk from Villasol to the Rincon where the bus stops are. Part of the walk is up a slight gradient. There are bus stops just outside the Raco and Torreta sites.

    Try the Hotel Solana, they have a lounge lizard type waiter for the ladies and cross dressing barman who brings your drinks on roller-skates. Just look out for and avoid the elderly litle lady on the mobility scooter, she and her family are a bit rough. If you are looking for something different keep and eye out for the rather stout chap with the Scottish accent and his wife, they are "up for it" if you know what I mean:Wink:

    Whilst we were taking some friends around Benidorm in our car I called in at this place on the way back for a look round:

    http://www.orangegrovecamperpark.com/

    Got to say looks nice, clean, good pitches and well supported. Drove in, was greeted and made welcome even though we were in the car, allowed to look round and is it's on our list of places to stay on next run out in MH. I did look for "funster" stickers and found none!!

    We have looked at this site too, but it is miles from anywhere and if you have mobility issues once you get to the bus stop they wont let you put a small mobility scooter on the bus. Villasol suited us, not far to walk and mostly flat. :thumb:

    No good unless you have transport, it's a hell of a walk to a bus stop !! Ok if you have a car or scooter.. Or very active on a Bike ! I went to visit as I needed to store my van for 3 weeks but got it cheaper in town at ElRaco and closer to get to...

    October weather wil be nice but you can easily get rainy days as well.
    Villasol.. If you have severe walking problems then either choose a site like Elraco where the bus stops outside. Or look at hiring a mobility scooter.
    If your happy with a 15 min walk you can do the "lively" part of Benidorm and the bus stops easily. Should the question ref the buses be for general getting about then they are frequent and cost €1.50 per person a trip.
