Three words to describe our trip; hilarious, fun and definitely memorable. Since watching the ITV program Benidorm, my curiosity was sparked. I’ve always wanted to know if the real Benidorm was really like what it is portrayed to be. Spoiler alert… it’s only like it in some areas.
We stayed in the old town of Benidorm which still has hen and stag dos, but it’s not as many as the new town. For us, staying in the old town was ideal because we had the best of both. It was close enough to get to the new town and far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet.
Our first day in Benidorm is a bit of a blur… Sun exposure and too much “alcohol” had us defeated by 3pm. We ended up in the Hard Rock bar and then in the sea. Not for long though because it was FREEZING. The chilly dip definitely sobered me up and it was time to head back to freshen up and get ready for round two. Well, round two turned out to be all of us in glorified pyjamas, eating paella, drinking Fanta lemon and going to bed at 10pm.Wild, right?
