    I love the view of Benidorm from a distance, like a piece of cubist art and have even enjoyed very short stays in the past but long stays not for us. Stayed 2 nights in November 2013 , the first time for over 10 years and the first time on a campsite, not impressed with the site and I doubt that we shall return but obviously very popular.:)

    We hope to be in Beni early October until March, with a break or two, we wont actually be there for xmas, but will certainly be there for New Year.
    I'm sure there will be plenty other Funsters there just join the Benidorm Snowbirds group to see what is going on while you are there, it is a great way of keeping in contact. (y)
    See you there

    We hope to be there for Xmas and new year. I have contacted la torretta and they say no need to book.
    That the one nearest the front isn't it?
    We would like a stroll to the front most nights.
    We stayed at Armanello last year for 10 days in February,too far out for us.
    Terry was nearly pulled off his bike on the way back through the lane by some youngsters and that was in the day.
    Don't want to catch buses back late at night either.
    Make a change from portugal. I understand its quite warm there as well over Christmas and new year?

    cant imagime anywhere you would wanna go for xmas its great in beni once the louts have left and where else will you get a pint for around 60p in spain that is
    el raco just another 5 mins walk from torreta is a better camp imho i would imagine as normal there will be a load of fun loving ppl there from around sept onwards
