Benidorm: The birthplace of Spanish tourism

29th Mar, 2017

Benidorm is a key part of the history of tourism in Spain, a cosmopolitan destination that has kept up with the times and attracts millions of travellers from all over the world. Its privileged climate, its great hotel infrastructure, its extensive transport network, the quality of its services, its beautiful beaches, and its extraordinary gastronomical offerings turn this town into the perfect destination for any event or celebration.

With more than 17.000 hotel places in four- and five-star Benidorm hotels of various kinds, 2.130 beds are in hotels specifically designed for visitors taking part in conferences and events, which have a total surface area of more than 17.000 square metres available to meetings and can house more than 12.000 people.

Hotel offerings in this segment include those from world-renowned brands, from exclusive Asian-inspired resorts to accommodation that recreates Mediterranean culture with golf courses and views of the sea.

The innovative Gran Hotel Luxor, located in Terra Mítica, a theme park that covers the history of the four ancient European civilisations, stands out. It will be opening a new convention hall in February which is located in a replica of the Egypt pyramids, which will join the Roman amphitheatre, with a surface area of 3.000 square miles.

Local gastronomy has merged contributions from other Spanish regions and other countries, joining the Mediterranean to the world through its cuisine. Gastronomic days focusing on rice, tapas, pinchos, stews, and Andalusian specialities are some of the catering options.
