Accommodation options in Orihuela Costa are rather limited. This is not to say that there's not enough accommodation for visitors. What is limited though are the amount of hotels. Even the neighbouring city of Torrevieja is sorely lacking in hotels. The reason for this is anyone's guess and a bonus for private property owners renting out holiday accommodation. Orihuela Costa is an extremely popular area with expats from Britain, Ireland and Scandinavia. This means that some visitors are lucky enough to find a place to stay for a holiday with friends or family.
Visitors to Orihuela Costa have a small choice of aparthotels in the area. These are big business in cities like Benidorm which is very popular with families and groups. Ranging in size and the amount of leisure and entertainment facilities they offer, aparthotels boast the best of both worlds. Self contained apartment living with the added bonus of a variety of hotel style leisure facilities is an appealing accommodation option for some holidaymakers.
Aparthotels offer more beds than a hotel, often having additional bunk and or sofa beds. With fully equipped kitchens, they also save on eating out, great for large families and party hard groups wishing to save their money for nightclubbing and water sports and activities. Some are basically just an apartment block owned by one company and offering no other facilities. Others may have gardens, swimming pools, children's playgrounds, bars and restaurants.

Orihuela Costa and neighbouring Torrevieja are home to many estate and letting agents. Arranging private accommodation through an agent offers peace of mind and has its perks.

Also if there are shared leisure facilities, make sure the owner has paid the community fees.
