Don't do it!!!

So very much at a loose end and with it being 33 degrees but COMPLETELY cloudy- I thought I would take myself off on a wee trip

A place which I have never been and even the thought filled me with fear and dread..... BENIDORM

Suffice to say I walked around it for around 40 mins

My Tripadvsor TLF report-avoid at all costs, and some

Re: Don't do it!!!

I just kept my head down and kept walking

Cannot judge people by appearance BUT there were def a few cliche types I passed!!!

Apparently there are gorgeous parts to it and certainly some very posh hotels- by size/ population- it has 2nd most skyscrapers for any city on earth

Great believer in each to their own -just not my scene

Ps It also has per capita the worlds highest amount of mobility scooters

Sounds grim. Did you see Madge on her mobility scooter?
By the way, same sort of temperature, but sunny in Kalkan.

Re: Don't do it!!!

Thoroughly enjoyed our times in Benidorm (as has been said, each to their own)
Decent beaches
Decent brandy (and good measures)
Good weather
Excellent entertainment

Re: Don't do it!!!

I do know what you mean, but on the plus side Benidorm was a good intro for us to Spain, swerved the kiss me quick culture, jumped on buses, off to Calpe, Guadalest, Milas etc, went horse trekking through the hills, car rental was cheap, all in all it served us well. I had my first non Vesta Curry in Spain, and my best ever lamb curry was in Arthur Singh's Curry Garden in Benidorm. Yum!
All in all I remember it well
