    We only have experience of La Toretta.. I believe it is about the cheapest there, is certainly the closest to most of the eateries etc, accepts dogs ( with their owners ! ) and is run by a very nice man indeed..

    Villasol is very nice, more expensive but no dogs.

    For us it's a toss up between Villasol and El Raco which are in our opinion the best two Benidorm sites. But as we now know lots of lovely folk at El Raco it's our preferred choice!

    Folk left Benidorm in March/April this year to head south and towards Portugal. Many then returned because the weather further south and west was wet and windy...meanwhile during the same period in Benidorm it remained dry and sunny :)

    Benidorm....A bit like Marmite really. Either you love it or hate it, but what you must remember is, its open, its cheap, it has the best winter sun outside North Africa, they speeka da English, its a days drive from the northern Spanish ports, you can get Coronation St, with a 1.2 metre dish, they have all your English food in the corner shop, they have the best free entertainment anywhere in the world. Having spent the last 16 winters there I can say with all honesty, I have never once been bored. Five minutes drive out of town and you are in the real Spain, if thats what you want. Just maybe the 17 MILLION Brits that visit every year are all wrong and an odd one or two funsters are right :cool:.

    Camping Raco is very good. Large pitches and excellent showers and toilets.

    I absolutely love Benidorm.:h: (y)
    Hoping to get there soon.

    I love people watching and there are plenty of people there to watch.
    We don't really do the pub scene, but do enjoy eating out at all of the affordable eateries.
    We take the dogs. They quite like it too.
    I feel comfortable there and I love the daily blue skies.
    Leave some room for us.
