Easter is just around the corner!
Starting a few days ago, the Earth’s axis tilts neither toward the Sun nor away from it. That’s why there’s a roughly the same amount of daylight and darkness at all latitudes. Hence the equinox. The days also become a little longer in our hemisphere because it takes the sun longer to rise and set.
Since the development of humanity, almost every culture in the world celebrates the beginning of spring. It is, after all, the season of new beginnings, when at last we achieve the liberation from the harsh winter. There are a lot of religious holidays that take place around the spring equinox to usher in the season. For example, Jewish people celebrate Passover to mark the liberation from slavery, and in the Christian Church, Easter is one of the most important and oldest festivals, marking the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This year, Easter falls on April 16.
Thus, springtime reminds us aspirations of rebirth, renewal, rejuvenation or regrowth. Flowers sprout everywhere, and the new life makes its way like a chick that breaks the eggshell.

At the Hotel Don Pancho we consider that it is time to let yourself be carried by these vivifying feelings, and to take advantage of Easter holidays to reconnect with good weather, with nature, with light… with life.
In fact, this is the first Easter for us after the massive refurbishment that the hotel has gone through just a few months ago. Everything in this iconic hotel is brand new, except the staff and service, which remain as unique as ever. We are located just a few steps away from famed Levante beach and close to numerous shops and restaurants, but we also think of ourselves as a peaceful and tranquil oasis among the crowds. Appointed with beautiful and comfortable accommodations, charming ambiance and the most qualified staff, Hotel Don Pancho remains the hotel for everyone searching for an escape from the ordinary.

In regards to our surroundings, what could we add that has not been said before? Benidorm is located in a privileged natural environment and blessed with a micro-climate which produces good weather all year round. In addition, the city offers endless entertainment possibilities, for all ages and tastes, whether you fancy a beach holiday, a cultural visit, a getaway break or beautiful nature walks. The decision is yours.

Beyond this cosmopolitan atmosphere, you can still find the marvelous narrow streets of the old fishing town, where some traditions and typical dishes remain exactly the same. Also you can find the processions of the Holy Week, a very strong cultural and religious practice that take place during the days before Easter.
