Where is Benidorm series 10 set?

Series 10 of Benidorm will be starting on ITV tomorrow (Wednesday, February 28) at 9pm.

There are a total of nine episodes in the new run, which marks a decade of Benidorm.

It’s a contemporary comedy series focuses on the hotel and the guests that stay there.

The ITV show, which has been aired since 2007, is set in the real-life tourist destination in Spain’s Alicante region.

However, the hotel complex featured in the show – the Solana – is completely fictional.


Where is Benidorm series 10 filmed?

Benidorm is filmed at a number of locations in Spain, which play host to the show.

Among the locations are the Sol Pelicanos and Ocas hotels, which stand in for the Solana.

The hotels’ swimming pool and bar have a starring role as the Solana’s facilities in the show.


The sister hotels have been used, with tour operator TUI saying: “The Hotel Sol Pelicanos/Ocas is effectively two hotels in one, so you get double the benefits – the restaurants, snack and pool bars all come in pairs.”

Meanwhile, local nightclub Morgans Tavern is Neptunes in the show with all filming taking place during the day in closing hours.

“You can always tell when they are filming there as they have a line of Primoti vans parked up outside plus generators – as well as a green gazebo on the terrace for the cast,” states website Benidormallyearround.

The site goes on to say: “The extras all sit together under the blue tent to the side of the shoot waiting to be called upon.”

Reflecting on finding the Solana’s location for the show, creator Derren Little said on documentary Benidorm: 10 Years on Holiday: “When we first came to here film the series, even before we started shooting, we walked around this corner and I just went, ‘That’s it. That’s exactly it.’

“Even the coconut matting of the roof of the bar and the swim up part, where we’ve had lots and lots of scenes. Just all of it, it was all in my mind’s eye and I just imagined.”

The Pink House – which is just north of the beach and pool locations – serves as the Solana’s reception.

The set for the reception was built inside the house and building also serves as the production office on the show.

Benidorm season 10 starts on ITV on February 28 at 9pm.
