Popular areas of Benidorm include Levante Beach (the busiest and noisiest area), Poniente (quiet), Cala de Finestrat (a bit far away from all the nightlife), the Old Town (very Spanish) and Rincon de Loix (close to Levante and well served by bars and restaurants).
Our advice would be that if you are renting short-term for a weekend, a few days or a week s holiday then get an apartment in the Levante Beach area as you will be close to the beach, shops, restaurants, bars, pubs and night clubs .
