Hotel staff friendly but not always good with information( booked in but was not told I needed a key for the safe, which meant another trip to reception). Pool and surrounding area very clean and tidy, plenty of sun beds available each day. Lovely garden surroundings with ample areas to shade from sun.
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in mid September. We arrived very early on our first day, at 10.30am and the hotel were very helpful and let us check in early and go to the room by 11am. The usual check in time is 3pm.
The hotel facilities are very nice, and the hotel design really does make it feel like a Mediterranean village. The swimming pool was massive and very nice. We had our pick of sun loungers as the hotel was not very busy, but I have seen from other reviews that the hotel and pool area is very busy doing peak times.
The buffet breakfast was included in our room rate and we really enjoyed this. The selection was plentiful and included hot items, cold meats and cheese, fruit, cereal, pastries and toast etc.
We ate at the Spanish Tapas restaurant in the evening twice and the Italian restaurant once. Both restaurants offered excellent food and service and we thought the prices were very reasonable for this standard of hotel.
All members of staff that we dealt with were very friendly and helpful. They didn't all speak English fluently but we got by.
What I didn't realise was that the hotel offered free parking for guests. If I had known that I would have booked us a hire car as the taxi charges to and from the hotel were expensive at Euro 70 each way.
The hotel is about a 10 min taxi ride from Benidorm.
I would definitely stay at this hotel again for a few days in the sun......but I wouldn't bother leaving the hotel to check out Benidorm!
We spent a fantastic 5 days at the Sol Ocas. The rooms were newly refurbished and very clean. There was a vast variety of food to suit all tastes. We had access to the fantastic Pelicanos pool and the main bars were a stone throw away. The whole experience was a pleasure and we looking forward to our next visit in 2015
Stayed here with my wife towards end of April. Loved the food. Staff are excellent. Wife adored hot tub by the pool. The hotel lives up to all expectations we had from looking at its website photos and a great previous visit at Christmas.

The transfer bus drops you off on the main road so it is a 10 minute walk to the hotel. The staff try to be helpful but they do not speak English very well. If you want to go into town you get the number 2 or number 3 bus, which are very regular and cost 1.5 euros. If you like to stay out late at night you can easily get a taxi back to the apartments, which costs about 8 euros.

The resort is beautiful, massive rooms well equipped and a free and well-stocked minibar (although it was not really replenished as promised). The beds are twins which is always a bit annoying if you are travelling in a couple but seems to be a popular option in Europe. The view of the bay from the balcony is stunning and the balcony is very generously sized.
The facilities in the Levels Lounge are very good and we enjoyed the complimentary cocktail hour each night, with a nice variety of drinks and snacks.
The pools are scrupulously clean, and everything in the resort seems well maintained. The heated pool is a great touch.
Overall we really loved the resort and would definitely return. Although it was not peak season and therefore was generally quieter anyway, the adults only aspect is such a plus and I wish that more hotels would do it.
