Thinking of going on a family holiday to Benidorm this year but worried about finding the right resort?

We know that picking a family friendly destination can be tricky; you need somewhere cheap, with plenty of activities for all ages, a quiet night scene after hours and safe beaches to play on.

So to save you a bit of time, here are three of our best (and cheapest) picks for a holiday in this fantastic resort in the Costa Blanca.

Hotel Gran Bali

Central location? Check.

Close to the beach? Check.

Excellent onsite facilities? Check.

In fact the Hotel Gran Bali ticks every box for a family holiday in Benidorm. The hotel is one of the tallest buildings in the Costa Blanca and offers a wide choice of restaurants, bars and cafes for its guests.

The children’s pool, games rooms and playground will be more than enough to keep the kids busy while you relax and top up your tan.

Don’t miss: Terra Mitica – A huge theme park split into five themed zones with plenty of rides and rollercoasters.

Princesa Hotel

The Princesa Hotel is a winning choice no matter how old you are. The large outdoor swimming pool alone will keep you occupied for hours, and it even has its own whirlpool and waterslide. Or if you fancy hitting the beach, you’ll be able to walk there in less than five minutes.

Away from the pool and the beach, guests can relax in the spa and wellness centre, complete with steam room, sauna and massage room, while there’s a Mini Club, playground and various other activities for the little ones to enjoy.

Don’t miss: Aqualandia  A water park with plenty of slides and chutes for all ages, as a large wave pool.

Are your holidays all about having fun? Then the El Faro Apartments are the perfect option for you. With discos, karaoke, live music and even bingo, the Poniente area of Benidorm is ideal for a family trip.

These affordable apartments are also just 50 metres away from the beach, where you’ll find almost every water sport imaginable from jet skiing to scuba diving.
