The Hotel Don Pancho bets on sports in the Mediterranean Half Marathon of Benidorm

On the 26th and 27th of November, the Benidorm Half Marathon and the 10km race will once again return. At the Hotel Don Pancho we like to bet on sports and healthy living habits, and that is why we wanted to be part of this healthy and fun competition by collaborating as official accommodation of both races.

The Benidorm Half Marathon is one of the great events of the autumn of the Mediterranean and this year it celebrates its 33th edition. It has a distance of 21,097 meters, which run through the center and the coast of the city of Benidorm, which allows to have a panoramic view of both the interior and its beautiful Bay while practicing running, a sport more and more fashionable.

Increasingly popular, the Benidorm Half Marathon receives visitors not only from all over the country but also a large number of foreigners who are encouraged to live this experience that mixes sport and tourism, giving our city even more international fame. Last year our streets welcomed 3,000 runners from which almost half were from other countries, which is a clear example of the international influence of this Half Marathon. This year it is expected that the number of registered people will grow and that again it will become a total success and a sport reference.

For those who are still beginning to compete in running, the 10km run of Benidorm is perfect to start or even to train because of its clean, central and exciting layout. It is one of the fastest and most active on the Costa Blanca, and runs through the city, which makes it very fun.

As official hosting of the race, the Hotel Don Pancho tries to make its clients find entertainment while exercising outdoors, in a place that stands out for its pleasant climate, even at this time of year. That's why we have prepared a special offer designed for runners who are encouraged to participate in this competition and stay at the hotel, which includes a special buffet dinner for runners and late check-out until 18.00.

Also, considering the well-being of the runners, this offer will allow you to cancel the reservation without expenses in case of injury (conditions to consult with the hotel). A very grateful courtesy in case of experiencing any mishap. An opportunity for those who wish to enjoy the best atmosphere, a healthy and pleasant plan and the best accommodation to rest after.

The "Escapada Running" offer includes two different packages:

  • Pack runner: includes a night for two people in Standard Room for 80 €. Includes special buffet dinner, buffet breakfast, late check-out (18.00 h), parking and cancellation without expenses in case of injury.
  • Special package: For a minimum of two nights in standard room for 75 € (per night). Includes special buffet dinner, buffet breakfast, late check-out (18.00 h), parking and cancellation without expenses in case of injury.
What is an attractive plan? Well there is still time to register and get a competition number, through the web

See you in the race!

It is always Summer in the Hotel Don Pancho

The Hotel Don Pancho cooperates with the initiative “Benidorm Always Summer”, a project from Visit Benidorm which aims to promote tourism beyond summer holidays. Thanks to the light and nice weather of the city, it is possible to enjoy a winter break in Benidorm with all kind of activities, including those associated to summer.

The Hotel Don Pancho wants to contribute its more than 40 years of experience to this project and therefore it works to promote national and international tourism in the less popular moths of the year, proving that the best holidays are still about to come.

Both its renovated and brand new facilities (Gym, Massage Room, Bowling Green) and its renowned buffet are the perfect attraction for the tourist who wants to enjoy the emblematic city of Benidorm in autumn and winter.

What does Benidorm offer during these months?

All kind of activities, for children and adults, for couples, groups or families. An interesting alternative to spend a weekend, bank holiday or a longer break.

Sport activities

So much is the commitment of the Hotel Don Pancho with sport and its interest in promoting healthy leisure time among its guests that it is the sponsor of the “XXXIII Benidorm’s International Half Marathon and IV 10 Km”, the most important sport event of the city and one of the most prominent races at a national level. With more than 3.000 participants, it has a noted involvement of international runners that want to enjoy this race through the coast and the town centre.

Benidorm also offers many other sporty alternatives for those preferring to have fun by doing sport. Aquatic activities like snorkel, scuba diving, sailing, parapenting, kite surf, kayak and a renowned cable ski circuit of 1000 m2 to do nautical ski without requiring a boat.

Moreover, there are cycling routes around the city and the coast areas, golf, karting, Benidorm’s segway tour and many other sports. A wide offer adapted to all likings and ages.

Leisure and music

Benidorm, internationally famous due to its festivals, closes the event schedule with the “British Fancy Dress Party”, a huge “unofficial” party where citizens, mainly British, get together to enjoy a funny atmosphere full of colour.

And all after the Benidorm local fiestas, starred by the “Humour Parade”, “Copletes”, la Nit d’albaes, Mascletaes and flower offerings carried out by “peñas”, which are open for visitors.

Relax and Wellness

People who prefer relaxed holidays, dedicated to one’s care, will find what they look for in Benidorm’s microclimate. A perfect city to walk around and relax. Since it dedicated its first tourism leaflet to a wellness offer around 1980, the city has worked to offer welfare and peace to its visitors.

The Hotel Don Pancho offers the possibility to have a healthy break thanks to some of the services it now disposes, such as an exclusive Massage Room, where guests can enjoy a wide range of Thai massages that will help mind-body connection.


The endless beaches of Benidorm and its incomparable weather make it one of the biggest attractions in the Mediterranean coast and all around the world. Two fine sandy beaches and two small bays with clear water, all of them with cared promenades where you can enjoy the views while having a walk. The Hotel Don Pancho is located a few metres away from Levante Beach, offering great views of the sea from every single room.
