For the ultimate relaxing holiday experience, you can't go far wrong with hiring a villa for a couple of weeks. A home away from home but, let's face it, better, the lure of your own private pool, a different bedroom for every night if you so wish and all the fun of barbeques on the patio should be enough to convince you that a villa is a fantastic idea.

There's a nearby bus stop to take you the 1.6 miles into Benidorm city centre, and the villa itself is perfectly equipped; with 6 bedrooms there's more than enough room for the whole gang, and plenty to keep everyone entertained as well, with games consoles and board games.
