el raco is by far the better site for facilities imho
villasol is ok as well location is spot on
armerello will be like cardboard city at that time of year
if you want 2 weeks on diff sites then its doubtful you will get a good rate

If you are going for 30 days or more, then its best to stay on one site as you will get the 30 day rate. Am paying 15 Euros per day on La Torreta on a fully serviced pitch which is the closest to the Rincon and town. We have extra large pitches, but the site is filling up very quickly for this time of year as the bar was refurbished last year and there are an extra 8 pitches that have been allocated with completely new facilities. Dogs are also allowed.La Torreta 004.JPG La Torreta 007.JPG La Torreta 001.JPG La Torreta 006.JPG . Whichever site you choose will quite possibly be your site of choice for the coming years, as it becomes more of a traditional thing to return to the same one.

We liked Villasol but we were only there for a week so the facilities (which were OK) didn't really matter that much. We liked the distant views of the town as they changed all the time with the light and the mist rolling in from time to time.

Very true Dave, Villasol was recommended to us on our first visit to Benidorm.
We are happy with the facilities and its location and will be heading back there
this coming winter. As people do return there yearly, we know that we will meet
up with friends again.
Brisey.

Bill is right about the 30 days, the end of March is also the start of Holy Week leading up to Easter and the pitch prices go through the roof. Check the web sites for prices around this time.(y)

Just note that Villasol do not take dogs just in case your carrying a pouch..
Villasol, La Toretta and El Raco would be my main 3 choices..
What I tell people who have never been before, arrive early in town and it will give you time to go look at the sites and that may help you choose. Plus if one is full then you have time to sort another..

Like other funsters we are looking at Benidorm for few months in Winter. Understand that you get reduced rates for over 30 nights but so hard to choose somewhere for a month when not been before. Have been looking at Almafra . Any feed back on it? Like the idea of what Tonka says and have a look first but wonder if they book up early and we would end up in a cardboard city somewhere!

Nice site with good facilities just outside Benidorm. But bus stop outside gate to take you into Benidorm our the other way into Altea a nice change from Benidorm.
Also a tram station by gate which runs along the coast.

Have only ever been on La Torreta, never been on any of the others other than to visit. Am glad I haven't if they are that bad. Do you have to take your own cardboard box or do they supply.
