    Staying in Benidorm for 4 weeks at the end of October through to November. Has anyone got any comments/recommendations on either Camping Arena Blanca (Benidorm Palace) or Camping Almafra?

    Would be glad of any input.

    Arena Blanca is quite a way from Benidorm palace.Do yo meen La Torreta which is next door to the palace?
    I stayed on la Torreta for about 7 or 8 winters,I liked it becose it was the nearest to town and the bus stop was right outside the campsite.An easy walk down to the market and the site was one of the cheapest in Benidorm.
    Dont park at the bottom of the site as it has been known to flood several times.I always parked on the carpark as the electric was not metered and unlimited,which for an RV in winter is a must.To get the best rate you have to stay a minimum of 30 days.Hope this helps.

    hi bill & carole.
    when you know the exact dates you are going , will you let me know , as we are sailing around that area & would like to call in to port & catch up with you ?, would you mind if i brought some of the crew ashore to meet up with you both ?, i am haveing a lot of trouble with my ANCHOUR but i am sure i will get it polished before benidorm. the weather is calm at the moment , but i had to wear foul weather gear the other night ,when i was entering harbour ?, dont forget !!! when you know the dates let me know & i can do some planning , must go now as julies up on deck with a able seaman?.
    regards.

    Camping El Raco . Next door to The Palace.
    That's if it's still there. They were extending it a few years ago.
    Must be huge now.
    Indoor pool, shop and bar on site
